Mortal Shell: Solomon the Scholar guide

Location: From Fallgrim Tower, head inside Grisha’s Cavern. You can destroy the beast or ignore it — totally up to you. Don’t forget to pick up the upgrade material for the Hallowed Sword, though.

In any case, you need to head to the pathway that slopes downward. There’s a tunnel here that’ll take you to a small chamber with a Gollum-like monster.

Kill it and claim Solomon the Scholar.

Stats: Solomon the Scholar has decent durability and stamina. However, you’ll know it shines brightest thanks to that resolve stat.

Mortal Shell Solomon The Scholar Guide 3

Thanks to Solomon the Scholar’s high resolve, you can quickly regenerate the resource and blast your opponents over and over with weapon skills or enhanced ripostes.

My tip, though, is to grab Accretion of Endurance and use it as an additional healing mechanic (by killing hostiles using weapon skills). Additionally, if you’re using the Hammer and Chisel weapon, you can activate your equipment’s abilities frequently thanks to the fast attack speed and multi-hit barrage.

Note: Recollection of Knowledge is useless since it requires you to fall off a ledge, harden your shell, and (hopefully) hit someone. The additional effect (gaining resolve) isn’t even something you’d need compared to the other perks Solomon the Scholar already has.
