Hollow Cleric Enemy Description

 

Hollow Cleric Combat Information

  • From range, they cast a spell that summons a damaging aura where the player is standing.
  • At close range, they may attack with their hands to deal a small amount of physical damage.
  • When attacked, they will often hide under their shell to cast a healing spell that is accompanied by a damaging AoE arround their body.
  • When they hide behind their shell, the player can kick them or strike a few times to flip them on their backs. They'll writhe for a few seconds before returning to their feet and continuing to attack. Attacks that hit them while they're on their back deal significantly increased damage.
  • One specific Hollow Cleric (guarding a ladder nearby the Ringed City Streets bonfire) will perform a highly-damaging miracle spin charge at you with knockdown. The attack causes the Cleric to fly across the ground with a Way of the White Corona-like aura around them, covering a significant area. The attack will only be done once, after which the Hollow Cleric will continue to fight as normal.
    • Managing to land a hit on the Cleric while they do this attack will knock them onto their back, but the extreme damage of the attack makes it inadvisable to do, even if you have enough poise to withstand the hit.

 

Hollow Cleric Notes & Trivia

  • A simillar type of shell can be seen on the Cleric Set and the backs of Pilgrims.
  • Although  they are coloquially referred to as "Turtles", their movement speed is actually quite formidable.

      So these are pre-pilgrims of londor right? resemblance of the turtle back to the pilgrim shell is uncanny, and the pilgrims came from the ringed city right?

          Their enemy type should be hollow and they weak to Hollowslayer GS. The Wolf Knight's GS (551 attack) deal 515 damage and The Hollowslayer GS(539 attack) deal 601 damage. The damage is increase significantly.

            Looks like a Kappa from Japanese folk lore. It fits the environ of an abyssal swamp and general comparisons between the abyss and a body of water.

              I can imagine a player cleric whom has avoided concepts of dark and curses looking at their brethren and wondering why their raw faith didn't protect them, and worrying that if their faith didn't protect these poor souls then whats stopping them from turning mad as a hollow any minute...?

                Silencing works well. They can't cast damaging miracles or heal. They still turtle up, but just without the healing.

                    Okay tested this run:

                    Starting from the Ringed CIty Streets bonfire, there is 12 clerics to kill. The run takes between 02:30-03:00 min (02:00 if you're fast af) and with my gear (Avarice, GSR+3, SSR+3, Crystal Rapier, Shield of Want) i managed to get 1-3 Twinkling titanites each run and 45k souls. I have never to farm the Archdragon rock lizards, but this aint too bad imo!
