      I was excited when I saw the "Lycanthrope" link, thought I missed Werewolf enemies. I'm genuinely disappointed From Software, Lycanthropy is being a Werewolf.

        anyone else start to feel that he's not supposed to look like a werewolf? These are drinkers of the blood of the wolf (beast blood) however Artorias was a man, as consumption of this continues over time however, we see that men begin to degrade into beasts, after all, we saw just how bad it got in bloodborne...

          Might not seem relevant, but the lycanthrope right after the Farron Keep Perimeter bonfire when you are going to face the Black Knight will sometimes get stuck in the doorway. easy kill.

            They don't look like werewolves despite being called lycans. However, they have visible claws and large teeth. The first steps towards Bloodborne? Seems like it.

              2 Hits and bleed, another 2 hits and bleed, another hit and dead, so ***** easy to stunlock. With a 25 luck/25 dex character, this enemy can be killed with one full stamina bar (20 endurance).

                The ones sitting down can be pretty easily approached by walking (holding alt for PC) up from behind them for a free, fully-charged strong attack. Typically gives you a good leg-up damage advantage before engaging.

                • Reminds me of stage 2 Gascoine from BB.23 Apr 2016 15:15  

                  Fast swinging, very aggressive, obnoxious without remorse...by far one of those enemies that can easily smoke advanced lvl players if not one shotted when it's unaware.

                    Let him pounce for you and roll out of the way. You'll need a fast weapon to stun him but get ready to roll and block a lot. use a quick flurry of heavy and light attacks with a fast weapon and you should get him quick. Never fight 2 on one.
