How to Defeat Foulrot the Soultaker
To defeat Foulrot the Soultaker, you must employ a solid strategy, which we’ll outline in this section.
First and foremost, you must keep an eye out for the Banshees that Foulrot will summon during this battle. They’re really weak but can easily burst you down if you get stuck in the terrain somewhere.
You can focus down the Banshees and then get to Foulrot but this requires plenty of patience. However, if you know your surroundings, simply strafe around and target Foulrot only. Try and get the Banshees stuck on trees or around corners.
Foulrot will slowly chase you down, menacingly holding his blades. While you can kite him and keep hitting him from range, AoE attacks will rain down from the sky. These AoE attacks are telegraphed by circles on the ground, so you need to pay attention and dodge.
Foulrot’s most slippery attack has him turn invisible. After a short delay, Foulrot appears right next to you and strikes. This is a hard to avoid attack.
When he turns invisible, you need to wait for him to appear and dodge immediately. This is hard when many banshees are around so keep moving and wait for him to appear.
Keep up this strategy of hitting him from range and timing your dodges for his teleport attack and Foulrot should fall in no time!
