Strategy Writeup

Nix Ocifiris is a scythe-wielding Necromancer with few attacks, but nearly all of them are very powerful. Unlike most other bosses' melee attacks, his Crescent Slash's first hit covers a very wide arc and continues past his legs behind him. To avoid this, stick close to his legs and jump over the blade as it swings down. Beware of the follow-up strike which hits slightly ahead of him but has very good tracking and can catch you even if you move behind him. This second strike has a bit of a recovery, allowing you to retaliate with at least 2 hits for most weapons.

The Death Bolts he summons aren't anything special and can be dodged through or baited across the arena. The Death Spray skulls are easy enough to avoid as their death streams have a narrow hitbox that follows a slow downward arc. However, do not underestimate their power as getting caught in the path will destroy you in a matter of seconds. Your biggest opportunity to deal damage is as he is summoning these skulls as he is locked in the animation for a while. His most difficult move to avoid is the Ground Scythes. Watch for the telegraph noted above and quickly position yourself to where the scythes would meet so you can roll through both of them. You can also attempt to do a double dodge but this is generally difficult to pull off given the speed of the attack.

Like all mages, depleting his health will cause him to collapse, allowing you to deal the final blow and end the encounter.


Attacks & Counters

Attack Counter
Crescent Slash Nix Ocifiris lifts his scythe up high and performs a very wide downward swing that covers his entire front, ending slightly behind his legs. He then follows up by smashing the scythe blade on the ground in front of him. Beware of rolling behind him for the first attack as the blade extends past his legs and can still hit you. Try to jump over the blade as it comes down instead. The second attack has very good tracking and he can change directions as he performs it. This second attack should be dodged through.
Death Spray Nix Ocifiris summons a skull in the air which sprays a steady stream of death magic diagonally towards the ground in front of it, slowly arcing downwards before disappearing. Get behind the skull or far away from it to avoid the spray. Getting caught in the spray and staying in its path will very quickly deplete your health.
Death Bolts Nix Ocifiris raises one hand to shoulder height and releases several bolts of death magic which travel in varying patterns, but typically towards the player. The bolts can be dodged through and don't deal much damage individually.
Ground Scythes Nix Ocifiris holds his scythe horizontally with the blade facing upwards. Shortly after, two scythe blades rise from the ground on either side of the player which proceed to dash along the ground, meeting in the middle and continuing through the entire length of the arena. This attack can be very difficult to avoid due to the speed of the scythes. Try to position yourself where the two blades meet and i-frame through both of them with a well-timed roll.
