Special Effect Multipliers[edit]

Special Effect Multipliers are blanket multipliers that are applied to NPCs, including Black Phantoms. For example, if the HP multiplier is "x2", the NPC will have twice the health that the player would have if they had identical stats and equipment. The NPC's attack multipliers are applied before the damage is affected by the player's defenses and resistances. Damage received by the NPC is slightly more complicated. When the player does damage to the NPC, the raw damage is put into a formula and computed against the NPC's resistances. These resistances are multiplied by the values in the Physical/Magic/Fire Defense columns before calculation. After the remaining damage is reduced by resistances, it is then multiplied by the Damage reduction multipliers in the Physical/Magic/Fire Reduction columns. The output damage remaining is the dealt to the NPC.

Attack Patterns[edit]

  • Rapid fires White Arrows from a White Bow when you are within range
  • Single handed attack using a Kilij when you are in melee range
  • May cast Firestorm when you are at close range



After Penetrating Sword Black Phantom and Scraping Spear Black Phantom.

  • Lock on and close the distance between you and her by sprinting at an oblique angle to avoid her arrows.
  • Use a quick weapon to get in a few hits.
  • Leave enough stamina to roll away as she is about to counter. Circle around her as Stamina recovers.
  • Repeat.

You can of course use the abundance of cover in the area if you need a breather.


This is it. The ultimate Archer v Archer battle.

  • She does a lot of damage, but you can eat moon grass.
  • You have a limited number of arrows, but she'll forget about you if you get far enough away.

Standing by or behind that weird dead dragon creature is a fairly good spot.

  • She seems to know when you're shooting at her, and will roll.
  • Lava Bow is good for this battle, as it gives you something she doesn't have - ranged Fire damage.
  • Shoot and retreat or shoot repeatedly, but watch out for her rolling away.
  • Note: If you can't seem to hit her, walk back over to the archstone, or stop shooting for a bit.

You may have to back up anyway, if you aren't wearing the Thief 's Ring.

  • After a while, if she starts running at you, she is likely about to cast Firestorm , and unless you have fairly high Vitality , this will hurt.
  • Run back to the archstone and repeat the shooting strategy. This could take over 100-200 arrows.
