Slave Knight Gael – How to Defeat

Slave Knight Gael will be encountered at Filianore’s Rest. He can be seen consuming the Pygmy Lords to obtain the Dark Soul of Man.

In the first phase of this boss fight just dodge its swings and immediately attack him, but try not to get greedy as it will kill you in an instance if given the chance.

As the Slave Knight Gael backs off to prepare to lunge at you, as he does roll towards him and you will dodge the lunge attack. The same goes for the plunging attacks.

As you hear him scream, it means that he’s about to perform a flurry, but rhythmic rolls under each swing should see you right. Alternatively, rolling backward will also work as long ad you have the space to pull it off.

The second phase of this boss fight in Dark Souls 3: The Ringed City DLC is a tough one. In this phase his attacks have a deadly energy wake, his range has increased and it will use a crossbow and will throw some energy projectiles.

Rolling to the left or right will save you from these, however, you will have to dodge the energy blast twice as it will come back at you again. When Slave Knight Gael is not using projectiles, go right to him and strike him.

One attack to watch is his downward swing, as it’ll hit you again on the way up, so be sure to dodge twice for that. The crossbow can be interrupted by attacks if you are standing close to him.

As his health drops to just on third, he will scream and while he will get a few hits on him and roll back. There will be a lot of attacks going on around you and they will come at you fast one after the other. However, don’t panic just stay close to him and stab it to death.

You can also get a few hits while he hunches up and starts muttering. He will repeat the death orbs attacks and this time he will also lunge at you, so keep rolling until you are clear. Repeat these steps and he will go down.
