Nephael Mos, Knight of the Chasm Strategies
Nephael Mos has some very powerful spells. Particularly, the energy needles he leaves on the ground, despite being very slow, deal a lot of damage on contact and can quickly shred your health. This is what you should be on the lookout for throughout the fight. Consider using a powerful ranged weapon as it can make this fight a lot easier by baiting his various needle attacks while you pelt him from afar.
While his spells are very powerful, they do leave him vulnerable to retaliation as each spell has quite a bit of a cast time compared to most other Mages. Your biggest window is whenever he casts Runic Lightning, which he likes to spam below 50% HP. This spell has a very obvious telegraph and can completely be avoided by rolling through the Mage. Quickly turn around and exploit his casting and recovery time by attacking up to 3 times. Do be careful if he casts this spell while there are needles on the ground behind him.
The Mage's melee attacks are nothing special but he does tend to follow-up his Runic Bombardment and a Dashing Slash. Beware of this and watch your dodge timing.
Once the Mage's health is depleted, he will collapse on the ground and you can devour his heart to end the encounter.
Attacks & Counters
|Slash and Stab||Nephael Mos performs an overhead slash with his greatsword, quickly following-up by stabbing at the ground. Dodge through the overhead slash to avoid the combo.|
|Dashing Slash||Nephael Mos dashes forward with his sword held behind him. At the end of the dash, he performs a wide swing. Dodge through the dash to avoid the attack.|
|Runic Bombardment||Nephael Mos raises one hand straight ahead in front of him, creating two large circular runes in the air. The runes lock onto the player and after a brief delay, they fire several projectiles. Wait for the moment they fire before dodging.|
|Runic Needles||Nephael Mos wiggles one hand in front of him, creating two triangular runes in the air. These runes slowly fire glowing needle-like projectiles into the ground which linger for a few seconds and deal damage on contact. Watch the curved side of the runes to see where they are about to fire the needles.|
|Needle Rain||Nephael Mos holds one hand to his chest as several needle projectiles manifest behind his legs. After a brief moment, the needles fly forward in an arc, getting stuck in the ground and lingering for a few seconds. Wait until the last second before dodging through their trajectory.|
|Runic Lightning||Nephael Mos raises one hand up high as he creates a single bright, circular rune with a septagram pattern. After a brief delay, the rune fires a powerful lightning bolt at a slight down-forwards angle. The bolt explodes on impact, releasing a burst of energy in a large radius on impact. This move will only hit in front of the Mage so dodge behind him to avoid the attack.|
