The Pursuer – Dark Souls 2
This heavily armored warrior is not an easy enemy to bring down. He begins simply slashing at you as he floats around, and then switches to a more defensive strategy as he puts up his shield and charges, making it very difficult to take him out quickly. He can be encountered multiple times if you are playing Scholar of the First Sin edition. You will face him in Forest of Fallen Giants, Things Betwixt, Lost Bastille, Iron Keep and Drangleic Castle.
