The best spirit skills to upgrade and enhance
Let’s talk about the best spirit skills in Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights. Remember, the “red” (boss) skills use Furious Blights. Meanwhile, the “orange” (miniboss) skills require Stagnant Blights. Leveling up these skills will also increase their blight costs. Oh, and one more thing, the Umbral Knight is the only one that uses a different resource called Ancient Souls. We discuss this in our Ancient Souls guide but, sufficed to say, you should also level it up.
Gerrod, the Elder Warrior
Bar none, this is my favorite spirit skill in Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights. While it’s true that the swings are slow (even the jumping worms will damage you because they move faster), the damage dealt by this skill is quite high. Most mobs will get annihilated in a couple of hits, especially if you max this out.
Even better, each attack depletes a huge segment of a target’s poise meter, dropping and staggering them with ease.
A key reason why I love this skill is that the toxic mist stays in the air for several seconds. Anyone within its area-of-effect takes constant unblockable damage. It makes boss fights a breeze as well.
Castle Town Maiden and/or Western Merchant
From time to time in Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights, you’ll encounter several shielded mobs in a room. These battles can be fairly annoying since you’re forced to parry and dodge a lot. Thankfully, you can spawn the Castle Town Maiden’s dog. It’ll run around and damage foes, and they’ll be none the wiser. There’s also another skill called Western Merchant (crow familiar summon), but I find that it’s a bit inconsistent when shooting fireballs.
Dark Witch Eleine and/or Hoenir
Speaking of fireballs, Dark Witch Eleine lets you shoot out 70 or more of these in one go before you need to replenish your “ammo.” It’s an easy means of clearing rooms without getting into the thick of the fray. Hoenir is also a good option since you can throw multiple blades in quick succession.
Knight Captain Julius
The suggestions above are primarily for regular uses, but what about Last Rites? Well, I personally think that Knight Captain Julius is head and shoulders above the rest. This is because the skill’s ultimate shoots a wide beam that lasts for several seconds. This ability hits several enemies multiple times. Think of it as akin to Cyclops’ Mega Optic Blast.
Anyway, let’s move on to the next part of our Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights guide. It’s time to talk about the relics.
