Item drops

  • A Cathedral Evangelist in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley drops Dorhys' Gnawing.


  • They swing their maces up to three times, but usually they only do it twice.
  • Sometimes, they slam their mace forward, dealing heavy damage.
  • All of their mace attacks deal Bleed damage.
  • They use their books to cast Immolate, and hug you, dealing a lot of damage. Once they are done, they gently lay you down in the floor.
  • When far from their target, they cast Gnaw, an Affinity-like spell that deals Bleed damage.
  • Sometimes, when close to them, they hit you with their books.


  • Unlike most enemies, the Evangelists speak coherent words and phrases. This is most useful in predicting their Immolate attack. The two phrases they utter are: "Poor child… come to me." and "Fire will cleanse the bastard's curse."
  • Mace attacks can be parried and riposted.
