Spector

Specter is a ghostly enemy in Dragon's Dogma.


Overview

Specters are dangerous dark cyan colored Ghosts feared by all Pawns for their deadly possession attack. They have relatively high health and strong magick resistance, but they are still vulnerable to Holy magick. They are invulnerable to physical attacks, except when they're clinging to a target.

Unlike other ghosts, Spectres target only pawns, and will not possess the Arisen.

Attacks

Attack Type Description
Possession Spec With spectral arms outstreched, the spectre follows a pawn, and will attempts to possess them. After several seconds if not dislodged the Specter will depart - if the pawn lacked possession resistance it will certainly be possessed.
Floating Charge Spec Rushes through a target. Likely to cause stagger as well as causing the invigoration Strength Boosted.
Disperse Spec The Specter disperses briefly, with a small discharge that may stagger or cause Strength Boosted.

Tactics

  • Immune to all debilitations.
  • Vulnerable to magick attacks, and all holy based attacks.
  • Vulnerable to physical attacks when they possess a target.
  • Physically attacking them often results in their disappearance and becoming temporarily intangible. They will reappear after a few seconds in the exact spot they were struck.
  • Melee attacks are ineffective - unenchanted weapons may inflict a very small amount of damage, less than 10hp
  • Resistant to Great Sacrifice if directly hit.
  • Spectres only target pawns, so the Arisen need no worry at all about becoming possessed.

Enemy specific :

  • None

The scroll Ghost Tactics Vol. 1 will grant knowledge for this enemy.

In addition to witnessing these techniques, it is necessary for Pawns to participate in killing 50 Specters either with their own Arisen or while travelling with others.

Notes

  • Impervious prevents possession, but not the possession attack - pawns with this Invigoration will be held by Spectres until the effect wears off (or they are rescued), after which they will likely be possessed.
