Angel is an Enemy in Dark Souls 3. It is part of The Ringed City DLC.

 

Angel Enemy Description

  • The Angel is a large and extremely aggressive aerial based enemy that barrages the player with beams of light that do a considerable amount of damage. Before each volley of projectiles, the Angel will emit a loud scream to indicate an upcoming attack.
  • Angels can also cast a blessing which inflicts curse buildup if their projectile volley is blocked by the environment.
  • After completing The Ringed City DLC an Angel will spawn near first bonfire in The Dreg Heap. That version is not aggresive. However, if you killed the Old Stone Humped Hag, it will be agressive and unkillable.

 

Angel Combat Information

  • They are extremely difficult to kill. This hints that they are not meant to be dispatched by the player directly, therefore running and dodging their projectiles is the best course of action.
  • If standing too long in a spot where an Angel cannot harm the player using its magic volley, it will inflict curse damage on the player. This attack can be avoided by observing if the Angel is spinning and a golden aura beginning to surround the player. The moment this attack is cast is a good occasion to run to next hideout.
  • Use of the Carthus Bloodring and a stamina buff such as Green Blossom is recommended, with the Carthus Bloodring giving more rolling invincibility frames and a higher stamina regeneration rate with the Green Blossom.
  • Each angel has a corresponding tree-like pilgrim, killing the pilgrim that is linked to it will defeat the angels permanently. Tree-like pilgrims does not respawn.
  • Tree-like pilgrim resurrect their corresponding Angel automatically if it is dispatched by the player. Attacking the Angel without destroying its corresponding Tree-like pilgrim is not advised.
  • Using the Sorcery Hidden Body will cause Angels to ignore you, allowing you to pass through areas without being attacked. It is recommended to re-apply Hidden Body before the effect wears off to avoid being attacked.

 

Angel Notes & Trivia

  • The overall design of the Angel is reminiscent of the Moonlight Butterfly from Dark Souls 1 due to it being a winged creature that attacks the player with projectiles which inflict magic damage.
  • Angels bear some similarities to the Darklurkers from Dark Souls 2.

            Is there any way to edit the article? The fourth angel is nowhere near unkillable, so I don't know where you guys pulled that out of. It's driving me crazy. No host =/= unkillable angel, you plebs

              Dragonslayer Greatbow+5 R2 with Onislayer arrows, 20str/45dex Landing arrows does between 200 and 419 pts of damage depending on how far away. Head shots also count.

                I am a big fan of anything thats holy / angelic, even if its some kind of corrupted version, so these enemies are my favourites in the game. I wish they dropped a miracle that we could cast, like a short version of those holy arrows or the curse dust

                  I do not see any similarity between Angels and Moonlight Butterflys other than being in the air... Besides the M.L.B Boss, the rest are idle unless you bother them. Angels are basically sentries tethered to a Pilgrim tree, they are intended to scan the area and limit movement until you find and kill the tree. So different tactics, roles, damage, aggressiveness, mechanics and origins... But other than that, totally similar.

                    Has anyone else had the angel randomly start to dance in the air, I only had it happen to the first one you see. I noticed it after i was invading and killed 2 blue sentinels.

                        The pilgrim "larva" looks like they are praying which summons the Angel's. Sense they keep spawning after death the angels themselves are not of this world and are summoned like dregs or are created through a miracle spell. Though this has bothered me for a while. The silver knights and some other enemies disappear the same way these angels do when they die. Instesd of falling down leaving a corps to pillage.

                          Extremely resistant to lightning, standard bolts with Arabelst inflicted ~220 damage while lightning bolts with the Knights Crossbow inflicted only 77 damage.

                            Killing the angel itself rather than the cocoon will just cause another one to come in it's place in fairly short order.

                              Suprised that they say the damage type is unknown... Just grabbed Great Magic Barrier and confirmed the damage is indeed magic

                                The beams cast by the Angels are the same color as Prince Lothric's sorceries... Seems after Gertrude was imprisoned in the Grand Archives, the kingdom of Lothric had a change of heart and embraced Angelic faith?

                                  I've found that after a certain point, there is an angel flying freely in the beginning of Dreg Heap, it won't attack you and you can't attack it, but I thought it was interesting to note, as I did kill all 3 angel hosts. bosses killed are: Demon Prince, Halflight, and Midir.
