Where to find Logostus Rime, Undying Scholar in Salt and Sacrifice

Logostus Rime can first be found in Elder Copse, high above his initiation point, on a long set of stairs. Jump onto the land west of the platforms and climb up the ladder. Continue on west until you see a tall wooden structure with a grappling point attached on the left. Grapple up to the platform above this structure and then grapple again to the landmass in the upper-east where the stairs and the Mage can be found. After fighting him and his mobs here for a while, he will teleport west. Retrace your steps from the grappling points and jump onto the landmass to the west where a set of stairs can be found with a lever at the top. Fight off the Mage here until he teleports and then pull the lever to lower a grappling point which will allow you to more easily reach this area later on by heading east from the main Elder Copse Obelisk. The Mage will teleport just to the west of this grappling point and then further west of the aforementioned Obelisk. Follow him while defeating his mobs and dealing damage to the Mage. He will eventually teleport down to the Unprofaned Mage and will finally settle in the same area you fought Parxa Krass earlier. Remember that there is an Obelisk west of the lake if you want to more easily return to the Boss Fight in case of death.

Strategy Writeup

Logostus Rime is one of the most difficult Mages you will encounter due mostly to his capability to deal large amounts on damage in a very short amount of time. Your priority should be learning the various patterns and telegraphs associated with his Rune Barrage and Rain of Runes attacks. These two moves will absolutely shred your health even at high levels and equipment upgrade levels if all or most of the runes connect.

For the Rune Barrage, rush towards the Mage as soon as he forms the circle of runes and dodge behind him. The runes will not hit you as long as you are not in front of the Mage. While this move is very dangerous, it is also your biggest window to get some attacks in so be sure to utilize this double-edged sword of an attack to full efficiency. His Rain of Runes will only home in on your during the beginning of the attack so keep on the move to bait the runes' trajectory. After they're set, you can roll through the runes and perhaps get a couple of attacks in on the Mage as he recovers.

Logostus Rime is not any easier at melee range, unfortunately, as he has one of the longest and fastest-hitting melee combos in the game. To top it off, he also advances forward during the combo and hits all around himself so you really don't have any openings to retaliate. Be patient however as the final slam in his melee combo can be rolled through and the short recovery state afterwards can be punished.

Logostus Rime also has quite a good resistance to staggering, but if you don't wait too long between attacks and can get a consistent chain of combos going, you can put him in the special stagger state where his eye glistens for a brief moment, allowing you to use it as a grappling point to dash towards his face and perform a powerful knife attack that deals a lot of damage. Make sure to utilize these moments when they come up.

Once the mage's health is depleted, press the appropriate button to devour his heart and end the encounter.


Attacks & Counters

Attack Counter
Tome Combo  Logostus Rime holds his Tome with one hand in front of him, slams it down on the ground and then spins the Tome around all around his body three times while advancing forward before culminating in a final double-handed slam. This move is not only quick but it also covers the Mage's whole melee range. Do not try to find any attack openings and focus on getting away instead. You can however dodge through the final slam and get one or two hits in if you are quick.
Tome Burst  Logostus Rime flicks his Tome upwards in front of him where it spins in place briefly before exploding, sending a shockwave burst out in a medium radius. Roll through the mage to avoid this attack.
Rune Barrage  Logostus Rime forms a circle of runes in front of him. After a brief delay, each rune fires in a line towards the player. This attack will very quickly shred your health if each rune hits. To avoid this, roll behind the Mage as soon as he forms the runes as he will not change direction after summoning them and they will only fly in front of the Mage.
Rune Wall Logostus Rime throws a wall of runes from behind him a short distance towards his front. You can roll through the runes as they approach but beware of a follow-up attack from the Mage.
Rain of Runes  Logostus Rime lifts up one hand on either side and releases a single rune with a dark aura around it which floats up into the sky while releasing several runes similar to the Rune Barrage move. The runes have a slight lock-on on the player at the beginning of the ability but you can avoid the brunt of the attack by keeping on the move.

        How to make game when devs have no ideas. First one great game. This... if i could id ask for a refund. Its not difficult game. Its bull'cc difficulty. Try dodging double rune barrage, combined with rain of runes, while trying to find opening on his spin to win book attack. Oh yeah, every attack will almost kill you by itself, in almost fully upgraded tier 4 heavy armor. When bosses normal attack is a one shot, its a sign when devs are out of ideas.

          This guy is a joke, especially in "nameless hunt" version.
          Cheap atk design with massive dmg to one shot kill.
