Protector of the Greenpath, trained in the ways of the Nail and the Shell.

They hide as bush like mounds and look soft, but beware these warriors! They are relentless in combat, fiercely guarding something hidden deep in Greenpath.

Behaviour and Tactics

  • Block: blocks with its shield when engaged. It will face the knight with the shield from any direction.
  • Swing: strikes once or twice to the front, lunging forward with each swipe and pausing for a bit after the last strike.
  • Thorn Spit: spits a projectile of thorns at the Knight that travels in a parabolic arc. This projectile cannot be destroyed.
  • Disengage: occasionally jumps backwards, disengaging from melee battle. If the Knight is close enough it will chain this into a melee attack, baiting the Knight into pursing them. If it creates enough distance between it and the Knight it will chain it into a Thorn Spit attack.

There are several easy ways to dispose of it. 3 Vengeful Spirit attacks and 1 Old Nail hit is the easiest way to kill it in the early game.

Baiting its melee by standing in front of it and jumping over it to land a few hits from above is a safe strategy as well. Another strategy is to use the Mothwing Cloak, bait its ranged attack, then dash in to get a hit in before it can raise its shield again.
