Balder Knight Archer
Balder armored archer, used light crossbow and standart bolts.
- Bolt Attack With Crossbow, can be blocked
Usually very simple to deal with, just hold up your shield when it fires, then run in and kill it in 1 or 2 hits. If your attack rating is low, just rinse and repeat a few times. Since they are usually backed up against a wall, it is difficult to backstab and no riposte is possible. Sometimes they can be a hassle since other undead will be attacking simultaneously so try to position yourself where their arrows/bolts will hit some feature of the landscape, such as a wall or rock, while killing the melee undead. Once they're all taken care of, rush the archer.
