This guy. I didn't actually die to him the first time I fought him (at the actual fog-gate encounter), my friend killed me with the ballista because he "wanted to see a fence-post-sized stake in someone's face". In fact that happened to me a lot. /cry

fantastic arts <3

I liked fighting him. I ran from his first encounter when he swoops down like he owns the place (which is why I ran off in the first place) and totally missed his actual fog gate/boss fight until I had to go to his place.

My first fight with him was in the Iron Keep, where I just so happened to head back to get some loot I skipped and there he was. I died a lot, but I kept fighting till I beat him. lol

I still want the armor... WHY IS THERE NO PURSUER ARMOR?!

I believe that's one of the biggest complaints. And it's such a nice set too!
Maybe that just adds to the lure of it all... hehehe.

I love the Pursuer.  I like to think of him as the player character's hot-blooded rival, since he's always showing up for another duel.

Due to the game's signature minimalism you don't hear the witty swashbuckling banter between the two of you, but they are so totally doing that.

He even has an evil twin. Bad thing the original is evil as well, so you have to fight both :P

I actually didn't find this guy until Iron Keep because I wasn't looking in the forest when he swept down XD

So I'm guessing you never encountered his boss battle [with cutscene!] before the back entrance to the Lost Bastille either?
Hehe. I always battle him in the beginning... that 15K souls is quite tasty for a low level character... ^w^;;

:iconkarniz:
karniz Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Heh... the Lost Bastille has two entrances:
One is by taking the ship in the No-Man's Wharf.
Second is past the official boss battle w/ the Pursuer.
[the one behind the door you need the Giants Key<?> to unlock, if I recall correctly.]

brain is totally fuzzy on details, I haven't played this game in a very very VERY long time... hahaha~

1st playthrough, I missed him completely until Drangleic Castle ._.

Oh well, XD

:iconkarniz:
karniz Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Wait you can encounter him in Drangleic? See, I learned something there!
I guess he just keeps coming back if you don't kill him the first time! haha~

so far it's Cardinal Tower bonfire, Behind the Soldier's Key door, and in Drangleic...
I wonder where else he'll spawn... ?
[Unless the area in Drangleic isn't a place you can avoid him... HMMMMM?]

I just don't wanna look at a wiki. Hehehehe!

PwnageguyXD Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2014
So far as I'm aware, he only spawns in the Throne Room of Drangleic Castle on NG+, two of them at once. No, you can't avoid them; they replace the two guys who are normally there.

And what I meant by that original comment is that I only learned of the Pursuer's existence in the Forest of Fallen Giants when I randomly found his fog gate while trolling around killing low-level invaders. So, yeah, that happened XD

After 5+ runthroughs of the game, I just found out he's in Iron Keep. Accidentally took the turtle knights back into the boss room and he popped up.

PwnageguyXD Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2014
Ah. Yikes. XD

I ran back in there after hitting the bonfire because I wanted to kill the Ironclads (turtle knights) behind me, and BOOM Pursuer. I freaked out so badly I almost died. My initial reaction went something like "oh hey, something's happening in the middle of this ro- OH GOD WHAT BOSS ASLKTJGASLKRJMNALKDJAKLSMJHNDSFKLMYHLKFDJ;LKSDHMKSDMH RUN"

At least you can get his sword, which can be one of the most powerful hitting weapons in the game and is good in pvp, if you know how to properly use it.

I've only been able to do that once, with the running. Was hilarious batting a person away trying to parry me with the strong 2h :D
