Elden Ring is an exciting game set in the nightmarish world of the Lands Between. The gameplay has been written by two of the best in the industry, George R. R. Martin and Hidetaka Miyazaki. The game features complex and in-depth storylines that are intriguing to explore, and there are enemies and bosses that need to be defeated in order to advance in the game.
Invaders, or NPC invaders are one of the many enemies that players will find in Elden Ring. These invaders are enemies that attack once the player has reached some specific locations. Players are alerted of the NPC Invader’s arrival with a prompt when they reach a certain point. For instance at the Roundtable Hold, players will come across Ensha and Mad Tongue Alberich. One of the invaders that players will encounter pretty early is Recusant Henricus.
How to Beat Recusant Henricus in Elden Ring
Recusant Henricus usually appears suddenly and then engages the player in combat. He dons a full-body armor and uses a mace equipped with the Ash of War: Eruption for combat. To find Recusant Henricus, players will need to travel to the northeast of Stormhill Shack, near the gates of a large building.
It is important to note that most invader NPCs cannot invade if players have cleared all the bosses in the area. In the case of Recusant Henricus, the area bosses are Tibia Mariner, Tree Sentinel, Flying Dragon Agheel, Margit, the Fell Omen, and Mad Pumpkin Head in the Limgrave area. If the player has not defeated all of these bosses, they will come across Recusant Henricus. Unfortunately, players cannot summon spirits for this fight.
Remember that Recusant Henricus uses a mace to fight, causing him to have a sluggish recovery post-attacks. When it has finished an attack, players should take the opportunity to strike back with sorcery and incantation. In addition, it would be a good idea to use a shield to avoid Recusant Henricus’s ruthless mace strikes.
Recusant Henricus’s slow recovery is a weakness players can use to their advantage. To do this, players should let him attack first, dodge his attacks using a shield, and then attack him before he gathers himself. It would be even better if players manage to bait Recusant Henricus into making heavier attacks, as this will prolong the time he needs to recover and, in turn, give players the upper hand.
