Grand Archives Scholar is an Enemy in Dark Souls 3.

 

Enemy Description

  • An eerie enemy, donned in a long, tattered robe and drentched in wax. Usually seen holding a candle.
  • The wax forms a candle on all their heads, but only the ones with burning candles can cast spells.
  • Located in the Grand Archives

 

Combat Information

  • They have 3 attacks: a standard missile, a missile spray (inaccurate) and one attack that shoots wax at the player. Leaves one drenched in wax. If enough wax build up you'll be slowed and unable to roll.
  • They are often accompanied by Hollow Slaves and Clawed Curses.
  • Can be lured?
  • Cannot be Rapported.
  • Only the scholars with lit flames on their heads can cast spells.

 

Notes & Trivia

  • They drop a lot of Souls relative to their difficulty. 2700 Souls for the burning candle variant. 1500? Souls for the snuffed candle variant
  • It states on the 'Scholar's Shed Skin' item that the scholars covered their heads in wax in order to stay sane while reading the contents of the archives. This item cannot be received in the game by conventional means.
