- "Serve me, minion!"
The Wight is a higher level Undead, and is of the Mage class. Wights wear a heavily worn out Dalmatica and Crowned Hood along with a mask that covers half of their skeletal face. All Wights wield the Plucked Heart Archistaff. They are always in flight, which makes them difficult targets.
Information and Stats
| Base Experience of 2,100(verify)
Can be more or less depending on a few factors such as:
|Information from : Dragon's Dogma - ドラゴンズドグマ ＆ Dark Arisen (www10.atwiki.jp), the 'Dragon's Dogma Signature Series Guide' , and from in-game testing..|
|High Levin||Mag||Casts 3 tongues of lightning at your party. Getting hit will cause Thundershock. Some Wights only use a special single hit Levin.|
|High Frigor||Mag||Casts 3 giant ice spires at your party. Knocks you into the air if you get hit. Only some Wights cast this.|
|Lassitude||Mag/Status||Casts a magickal fog at a designated location that will Torpor anyone lingering in it for too long. Only some Wights cast this.|
|Summon Undead||Spec||Summons Undead minions to attack. Summoned monsters can include: Undead, Undead Warriors, Skeletons, Skeleton Mages, Stout Undead, Skeleton Warriors.|
|Maelstrom||Mag||Conjures up a massive tornado that draws targets and allies into its core and throws them in the air (for additional fall damage). Wights only cast this after they have been hit. Looks like Levin when charging.|
|Silentium||Mag/Status||Casts a field that will inflict Silence on those caught inside for too long. Only some Wights cast this.|
|High Miasma||Mag/Status||Casts toxic fog that damages those passing through it, can inflict Poison on anyone lingering in it for too long.|
|Unholy Anodyne||Mag/Spec||Casts a field of red magic that heals its summoned allies just like Anodyne. The Wight can sometimes fly through this and heal itself with a similar effect as High Anodyne, as the Wight dons a reddish aura as it floats around.|
- Weak against and Holy enchanted weapons and spell.
- Weak against Blunt weapons, including arrows.
- Vulnerable to Silence.
- Vulnerable to Torpor
- The Wight is unlikely to cast Maelstrom when the Arisen is within close proximity.
- Once the summoned Undead are defeated, the Wight will descend in order to summon. Take advantage of this as Wights are the most susceptible to damage while summoning.
- When near ground and summoning attacks may inflict quintuple damage on the wight.
- Striders, Rangers and Assassins: Silencer Arrows or Blast Arrows are the bane of any Wight.
- Dealing enough damage will knock the Wight out of the air, leaving them temporarily vulnerable on the ground.
- Weak to Holy
- Silence them (may not be needed)
- Witness them casting most (if not all) of their spells. Unequip pawn weapons if needed.
There is a scroll that will grant knowledge for this enemy: Wight Tactics
In addition to witnessing these techniques, it is necessary for Pawns to participate in killing 30 Wights either with their own Arisen or while travelling with others.
More information can be found on the Pawn Bestiary Knowledge page.
- If the Arisen wishes to rapidly accumulate experience points early in the game then fighting the Wight's summoned minions whilst not defeating the Wight allows this. Use Weal effect items to double experience point gain. Unequip pawn's bows and staves to prevent ranged attacks on the Wight.
- Wights will re-spawn after around five in-game days.
- In The Bloodless Stockade, it is not unheard of to see a Wight get stuck behind a pillar and an archway making it rather difficult to hit the main body with arrows. If this happens move closer and attack to cease its casting, or move away far enough so the Wight moves itself away from its cover.
- The Wight's voice in-game is treated as a Sound Effect.
- When casting Unholy Healing, the Wight speaks a phrase in Latin.
- The Wight in the Chamber of Anxiety speaks in both Latin and English when casting spells and also has the most health of any Wight in game with 3 full bars of health and slightly higher defenses, albeit it is still weaker than a standard Lich.
- Wights will often laugh if the Arisen or his/her Pawns are hit by its attacks, most commonly if hit by Levin.
- During the Main quest; Deny Salvation, players see two Salvation magick users being turned into Wights, which gives an insight of what is required to become one. They are stabbed with a mysterious dagger and dragged to an eldritch abyss-like vortex from which they emerge as wights.
- Wights sometimes state that they are in pain and wish to be destroyed by adventurers, which is ironic as they cast deadly magicks against the party.
- "End my misery."
- "A new sacrifice."
- "From death comes freedom!"
- "From death comes peace!"
- "Taste sweet death!"
- "What a fool dares defile this place?"
When casting spells:
- "Death and Destruction!" (Levin)
- "None can survive annihilation..." (Maelstrom)
- "Fools must be punished!" (Maelstrom)
- "Rot away!" (When casting Miasma)
- "Destroy these fools!"
- "Fight at my side!"
- "Serve me, minion!"
Bitterblack Isle - Bloodless Stockage:
- "Who dares disturb my solitude..."
