Ture Vasari, The Blood-Drunk Blade Strategies
The main difficulty of fighting Ture Vasari is dealing with both variants of his Flèche Combo, which is extremely aggressive, quick and has a very long travel distance. The safest way to avoid these attacks is to run away and stay ahead of his rapier strikes, and then roll through the upward sweep ending move as there is a brief break before he performs it. Depending on the move he uses next, you may have time for a single hit after rolling through. When dealing with the Sanguine variant of the move, you can dash ahead as he charges up, hugging his knees while attacking. The blood stream will not hit you from this range but watch out for the incoming Flèche Combo. Disengage as soon as he leaps backwards and run in the opposite direction, waiting to roll through the upward sweep.
He will rarely use his Tendril Stab move but when he does, beware of rolling through the first hit as he will quickly turn around to perform the second hit which comes out very quickly. Keep moving away from him as you roll through. His Leaping Thrust attack also hits twice, once during the leap and then again as he lands. This move has a very long recovery time as he resheathes is rapier after landing so ensure you are rolling through the leaping motion and running back towards him to retaliate. You can easily get 3 or more hits with most weapons this way if you are quick.
His Electrified Blood move, while not dealing much damage, can stagger you and leave you open to his rapier combos and other attacks. The casting animation is quite long and you can make use of this time to attack him once or twice before rolling through. The blood globules and their electric link have varying patterns and you should keep a careful lookout for them and dodge accordingly.
Finally, try to play aggressively when you get his patterns down. Ture Vasari is relatively easy to stagger with consistent hits and you may get him in a special stagger animation where his eye glistens similar to a grappling point, allowing you to grapple to his head and perform a powerful knife attack. You can follow this up with a falling attack for even more damage.
Once you deplete his health, the Mage will collapse to the ground, allowing you to devour his heart and end the encounter.
Attacks & Counters
|Flèche Combo||Ture Vasari leaps backwards as he unsheathes his rapier. He then proceeds to perform a violent combo with repeated rapier strikes while advancing. This combo ends in an upwards sweep. This move will hit several times and can quickly shred your health if the full combo connects. To avoid this attack, you need to either roll behind him just as the attack begins or run away as he advances and wait for the short break before he performs the upwards sweep which can easily be rolled through.|
|Sanguine Flèche Combo||Ture Vasari grasps the handle of his rapier as it glows a bright red. After a brief delay, he unsheathes the rapier, releasing a long, horizontal stream of blood in front of him which deals a small amount of damage and has a very strong knockback. He then quickly follows up with the Flèche Combo. You can avoid this move the same way you would avoid the regular Flèche Combo except you also need to dodge the blood stream. Note that the blood stream will not hit you if you hug his legs.|
|Leaping Thrust||Ture Vasari graps the handle of his rapier while bending his knees slightly. He then leaps forward a good distance and performs a diagonal stab as he lands. Note that the leaping motion will also deal damage as the Mage leads with his knee. Roll through the leap to avoid the attack completely.|
|Tendril Stab||Ture Vasari leans forward and stabs at the ground in front of him using the two tendrils on his shoulders, quickly repeating the move a second time. This move does not have much forward movement but the Mage can change directions during the second hit so be wary of rolling through.|
|Electrified Blood||Ture Vasari holds his hands to the sides of his waist as they glow a bright red. He slowly raises them as three sets of two blood globules, each connected by red electricity appear in the air. These appear and move in the air in varying patterns, dealing damage on contact. The blood globules and electric link can be dodged through but keep careful watch of their patterns as well as any other attacks the Mage might be doing.|
