For magic users, Darriwil will pose a considerable threat due to his high speed and ability to dodge spells. To avoid this, try to cast your spells between two of the boss’s attacks or just after the end of one of his three-hit combos. Be careful not to be too greedy, though, as Darriwil can quickly close the distance by literally teleporting to your position.
In hand-to-hand combat, focus on dodging. Darriwil uses mostly three-hit combos, so dodge the two attacks backwards and then roll forward on the third attack, then hit him with a heavy attack before backing off. Do the same if the Boss attacks you with his claw and then jumps over your head. Finally, you can counter Darriwil’s attacks with a shield. Since most of his blows are very fast, this can be quite dangerous. However, it is possible to reduce the risks by only countering the Boss’s forward charge, which he will trigger by dragging his sword along the ground.
Alternatively, if you have encountered Blaidd, the Half Wolf in the Misty Woods, you can summon him during this fight to charge at Darriwil. Blaidd won’t really do much damage to the Boss, but his incredible stance damage can regularly knock his opponent down, giving you plenty of time to get your game on.
