Hollow Slaves are an Enemy in Dark Souls 3.


Hollow Slaves Enemy Description

  • They're fast and have a fast flurry attack as well as a heavy attack that can cover a large area.
  • They come in 3 variants, wielding either Thrall Axes, Warpicks or Flamberges.
  • The Hollow Slaves that wield axes and warpicks may switch their weapons to blowpipes and shoot darts if the player moves too far away from them (or the other way round).
  • Flamberge versions are less common and have more health, though this only applies to the two found in the Undead Settlement. The Flamberge wielding ones in the Cathedral of the Deep for instance have the same amount of health as their other counterparts. These variants' attacks are easily avoidable as the Hollow slaves struggle to lift the Flamberge before striking downwards.


Hollow Slaves Combat Information

  • Blocking their attacks with a regular shield or greatshield will stagger them leaving a big window for you to attack them.
  • Hollow Slaves hanging on the wall or the ceiling can drop on your head performing a deadly grapple attack.
  • Can be lured by Alluring Skulls.
  • Can be affected by Rapport.
  • A few of their attacks can be simply sidestepped to the right and punished with a backstab, but I would recommend you still block, as it can be hard to tell where their attack will go. Especially effective against the Flamberge variant.

      i see people having a lot of problem fighting these guys, so here is a tip: use your shield, block them, and when they're staggered by trying to attack you, just stunlock them to death, ez pz, blocking was never so useful in the game before i met those midgets

        Whenever I try to attack them, they dodge. Whenever I wait till they are done with their dodge, they dodge. Whenever I wait till they're done with their fukong dodging dodge, they dodge. And then... I get ganked because I try to hit one midget like 4 times but it refuses to attack me. These little douches... Sometimes I think from implemented input reads on these guys. I'm not Salty or anything but in my opinion these are the worst enemies and by far the most annoying. I'd rather take a prepatched Dregheap angle or the Skellywheel hell from DS1 than these Buggers.

          No other enemy tilts me like these ones do. I hate them so much. If you have the misfortune of getting ambushed prepare to be stunlocked for half your health. I'd rather fight all 3 Cathedral Knights in and on the rafters than a pair of these *****heads.

            These little fellas are like little deranged spongebob midgets who really want your blood. I hate them at times, they can really get on your nerves.

              Fighter.pl in 7 years when everyone stops playing DS and apex so he has no repetitive ass videos to make

                Lol @ the comments. There are annoying enemies in this game which understandably cause butthurt. The Elder Ghru, the two Sulyvahn's beasts by the Archdeacon... but if this enemy gives you much trouble, consider dropping the game and taking a nice long break from your troubles over at Super Weenie Hut Jr's.

                  You gotta love how From thinks it's perfectly balanced to have enemies that, in a game where poise is now only applied mid-swing, are faster than the player. I feel like in Ds1 if i want to explore and find items, i can avoid enemies. But in Ds3, enemies like this and the dogs force me to sit and fight or else i risk them catching up to me as im running past an enemy that can combo me to death, which is another issue altogether. I literally cannot complete this game because i always get discouraged after dying countless times to the ridiculous a.i. such as this...
