Dark Trackers are enemies found in the Forgotten Sepulcher, the Clock Tower and the Promenade of the Condemned (2+ BSC). Two elites holding one of the keys to the Throne Room can be found in High Peak Castle.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Once a Dark Tracker detects the player, it will run up to them and attack when they get to melee range. It may also roll to dodge attacks and attack with a much longer delay.

If the player moves far away or to a different platform, it will teleport there. They can't teleport if they are rooted.

Dark Trackers are often found in pairs.

Moveset[edit | edit source]

  • Description: Performs a melee range stab after a delay.
  • Can be blocked, parried, and dodge rolled.


  • Description: Rolls behind the player, charges up for a long time, then stabs.
  • Can be blocked, parried, and dodge rolled.



Strategy[edit | edit source]

Dark Trackers, despite their size, are quite tanky. Their regular attacks are straightfoward, and their backstab attack leaves them completely vulnerable for a long time if you see it coming. While they're easy to deal with one-on-one, the real risk lies when they are encountered in groups or alongside other enemies. It can be hard to avoid taking a hit to the back while dealing with several enemies.

Since Dark Trackers can teleport, they can be baited out of groups of enemies and dealt with one on one. Both of their attacks are best avoided by rolling since their strike is quite fast and difficult to parry while their backstab can be devastating if hit.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
