Nerijus appears in the gorge between Lake Agheel and the Murkwater Catacombs in Limgrave. This invader is faster than a blue hedgehog and twice as spiny. His weapons deal Slash and Pierce damage and can bleed. He also has a ranged magic attack that can cause bleeding. He even has a Crimson Tear bottle to heal himself. One of the few saving graces of this fight is that the player doesn’t have to go it alone. Bloody Finger Hunter Yura is automatically summoned to assist the player during battle. Yura spawns back to the bridge the player passed under to reach Nerijus. So the first thing most players want to do is guide Nerijus back to Yura while trying to avoid the skeletons and kill the insects littering the path in between.
The YouTube channel I.Eat.Games. has posted a video suggesting that when Yura arrives, the best strategy is to let him get Nerijus’ attention while the player tries to attack him from behind. The player can occasionally pull aggro, but then all they have to do is retreat and let Yura take the brunt of Nerijus’ attack again. Keep it up and eventually his health will drop to zero.
Defeating Nerijus will drop the powerful Reduvia Dagger. It scales with Strength, Dexterity, and Arcane. It also deals a lot of blood loss damage.
