Wraith is a type of enemy featured in Darksiders.
|“||Among the horrors of hell there is also seductive beauty. The Wraiths float alluringly above the wastes, their tattered garments billowing gently in the breeze. But beneath a wraith's delicate facade there is only hunger. These erotic foes devour life force, mercilessly extracting it from any who stumble near . Their prey are left mere husks, the cast-away shells of an unholy sirens' feast.||”|
They are specters that have only one desire: to kill War, or as they call him, "Samael's Dog". Their attacks are quite powerful, as they can rip away a great part of War's health with only one strike.
The best way to defeat a Wraith is to focus on one at a time and strike with all of War's strength, while activating Block Counter when they attack, (RB or R1). When one of the two buttons B (on xbox 360) or O (on PS3) appears over them, that's the signal for War to "shut them down", using a devastating finishing move that rips their head right off with War's sword, Chaoseater.
It should be noted that all of the wraith's attacks can be blocked.
- Using the Abyssal Chain to pull a Wraith to you after knocking it away keeps it off balance, enabling further attacks without retaliation.
- Using your Tremor Gauntlet to stun a Wraith, you can deal more damage in combination with the Chaoseater and will be able to kill it faster than any other type of combo.
- Constant attacks with the Scythe can essentially "juggle" the wraith, keeping it in the air, and leaving it unable to attack.
