Bestiary entry Edit
- There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in philosophy.
- - Bartolomeo Darez, after trying to contact creatures from another plane and landing in an insane asylum.
- The Caretaker served with the indifference of a golem, and proved as fierce in battle as it was diligent in its labors. It felt no pain – in fact, each blow it received seemed to give it strength, as did each blow it landed on Geralt with the spade it wielded as a weapon. What is more, the Caretaker was able to summon powerful spirits from the graves it had dug and could heal itself by absorbing them. The witcher had a hard time evading the devastating strikes of its weapon, and his only chance at wounding the creature came when it would stick its spade in the ground to draw on otherworldly energy in an attempt to petrify its foes with fright.
Fighting Tactics Edit
Going by its fighting combos alone the Caretaker would be rather effortless for you to defeat given the amount of experience you have at this point. His attacks are fairly slow and predictable, and the wider area of effect attacks are noticeably telegraphed beforehand and therefore easy to dodge. However, like the Bestiary entry above mentions every single hit he lands on you heals him, quite strongly in fact. So you have to avoid getting hit even once as much as possible, and when he summons groups of dark spirits from the ground and his spade starts to glow you need to attack the spirits quickly to prevent the Caretaker from healing himself rather extensively from them.
