In Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin, these enemies can now aim their dark orb attack at you vertically, so exercise more caution when taking them out from a distance.

  • They can't effectively aim upwards, so try ranged battles from a ledge.
  • It may be tempting to try to shoot the rider off the giant, but it doesn't work
  • Their projectile does enough damage to one-shot most characters while leveling, especially those with no points in vigor.
  • The projectile, being dark magic, also damages your stamina.
  • The projectile also has a somewhat large splash damage radius.
