      Note that the "tracking line of fire" has functionally infinite range (it can chase you beyond the Witch's sight range, although the Witch won't begin the attack if it can't see you) and is capable of travelling on top of normally-impassable obstacles (like the railings), as well as curving significantly. Make sure you roll away at a 90-degree angle, since otherwise you can get caught in the trail and take damage. Oh, and sometimes their fire attacks do twice as much damage for no reason (tested being hit by them in neutral with same gear, I randomly got one-shot by them every few attacks, and took about half my health otherwise). The flame column is particularly prone to this.

        Facing 2 Pontiff Knights with this a-hole in the back is cheap af. It's doable, but it's cheap with its fire column that can hit you from anywhere at any distance from underneath you while you're fighting something. Their grab is also not really telegraphed as even being an attack at all. Poorly designed enemy. As long as you avoid their grab, they're really easy to 1v1. They're just cheap.
