Elden Ring is an action-packed title where players face gruesome creatures and enemies during their journey through the Lands Between. Besides a large number of bosses, there are many NPC intruders that can trouble players with their unique attacks.
Bloody Finger Nerijus is one of the challenging invaders whose ruthless and fast attacks can send players back to the Site of Grace in no time. However, certain tricks can make it easier for players to win the fight against this monster. Here is how players can beat the Bloody Finger Nerijus in Elden Ring.
Bloody Finger Nerijus Location
To the North of Lake Agheel lies a stream that heads to the Murkwater Cave. That’s where players will find Nerijus. As soon as players get to that road, Nerijus will spawn and start attacking them.
How to Defeat Bloody Finger Nerijus in Elden Ring
Bloody Finger Nerijus is, no doubt, a dangerous invader, but once players learn his tactics and signature attacks, they can take him down. In the beginning of this fight when players launch a couple of strikes, Bloody Finger Hunter Yura automatically spawns to help players against Nerijus. The best technique here would be to allow Yura to distract Nerijus and then attack him from behind.
It is also recommended to get rid of the skeletons spawning under the bridge first and then proceed with the boss fight. The entrance time of Nerijus is pretty long, so players should take that time to strike off some magic attacks on him. The main weapon of attack for Nerijus is daggers, so it is better for players to stay distant from him. If players are fighting Nerijus on their own, it would be ideal if they go slow in the fight. Once they successfully dodge the third slash, they can launch some attacks on him.
Nerijus’s weapon, Reduvia, is the secret to his power. This dagger can cause blood loss, eliminating players in a few seconds. Nerijus doesn’t give the Tarnished any time to get settled, and his attacks may catch players off guard. To top it all off, he can suddenly change targets between the Tarnished and Yura, so players need to be mindful of that too.
Maintaining health during the fight is crucial to avoid immediate death upon blood loss. When Nerijus is busy with Yura, players can use the time to heal. Upon defeat, Nerijus will drop his weapon, Reduvia. It is one of the best early game weapons in the game, and players can use it to unleash the same attacks as Nerijus.
