Serpent Mages are enemies in Dark Souls.

LocationEdit

Most of them reside in Sen's Fortress and one is in The Duke's Archives.

DescriptionEdit

Serpent Mages are humanoid serpents that have four arms and a cobra head. They dual-wield Flamberges and are capable of casting a long range Magic spell that appears as a ball of lightning, similar to the effects of Gold Pine Resin.

StrategyEdit

A shield with high magic defense like the Caduceus Round Shield or Crest Shield may provide some assistance. Beware of a close combat since the Flamberge causes Bleed build up and it's usually pretty easy for them to fill the meter quickly since they have three swords.

TriviaEdit

  • Due to its appearance, it's possible that Serpent Mages are females of the man-serpent race.
  • Oddly, the Lightning spells they use deal only Magic damage.
