Nightjar Ninja Notes & Tips

  • They can be challenging at first.  You need to be super aggressive. 
  • A shuriken followed by a Chasing Slice is a good way to stay close to them when they attempt to create distance from the player.
  • Most of the Nightjar after the first kite can be stealth killed.
  • There is one Nightjar waiting underneath the window leading to the Upper Tower - Antechamber, if alerted to the player's presence it will attempt a kamikaze attack, dealing heavy (if not fatal) damage.  The safest option is to ignore him and grapple towards the window. 
  • The different varieties of Nightjar appear to drop different amounts of Xp and Sen [needs updating]  
  • When they fall from their kites, they will whistle or emit a "WOOOOOOOO!" sound that will actually confuse players (which sometimes makes who ever is playing laugh).

      It seems like Owl is one of them. He wears the same feathers and he has a bird nickname just like the others. (FYI Nightjars are a type of bird.)

        These guys are really annoying even when they are alone because of their speed. They seem to suck at blocking Shuriken though. in short, try ranged battle.

          Chasing slash with a shuriken is a great way to get up close to them. Their tendency to jump around means you'll often knock them out of the air with it just by randomly throwing it out.
