Strategy Writeup

Shroud will start the fight by firing arrows from a distance. He will also fire explosive arrows at all present players, leaving behind a cloud that inflicts Root Rot. The battlefield has two different levels and Shroud will teleport to another place of the battlefield after every attack. The best strategy is to keep moving and looking out for where Shroud is going to appear. Try to aim for the head as it deals additional damage. If all three totems found in the dungeon are shot and the quest completed, clouds of root rot will explode around the arena and on the player(s) similar to an attack by a Rot Witch.


Attacks & Counters

Attack Counter
Phase 1
Charged Arrow: It will charge its arrow and fire a three-shot volley

There is a delay before the arrows are released, try to dodge after they are fired or run in circles. When in mele range he struggles to aim properly.

Teleport: After he has performed his attack, it will teleport to a new location You can see the shadow of where it will appear. If you are close, you can run to that location and shoot when it appears. The sound moves from the old location of the Shroud to the new one. Use that to track it better.
Bombardment: It will remain still and conjure a bombardment at your location. After a short delay, three consecutive explosions will appear on your location Try to run next to it as it can't move or attack when it's conjuring the bombardment, then run away until the attack finishes.

      Not a bad boss in itself, rather easy actually but the ads and his areal attacks can mess you up if you´re aint careful. setting him on fire with incendiary rounds is a good way to go or hunters mark to keep tabs on his location. As long as you keep moving and fire of a few rounds into his head while clearing out the trash, you´ll be fine.

        Fun fact: Veil of the Black Tear, one of my personal favorite abilities, will shield you from his arrow barrage that leaves behind rot clouds. It'll hit the top of the barrier but you'll be safe. Watch out for the adds chasing you though!

          Bugged for me, started a new world after beating the game on normal and this guy just disappeared after I destroyed all the totems. No boss drops, no shards, nothing.

              In regards to the totems: you cannot kill Shroud from them. He always leaves when you take out one pip of his life bar. After the third time you get a quest complete prompt and some xp. Also after I did this during his boss fight, rot spore explosions will trigger in random spots throughout it.

                I had a strange event with Shroud in the dungeon just before fighting it. There were three totems that spawned Shroud for a short period of time after I destroyed them. Unsure what would have happened if I beat it then as I died to adds and the totems didn't respawn. Did anyone else get this?
