The Pthumerian Elder's fire-enchanted weapon can transform into several forms, including a lance, crossbow, scythe, and a mace. He will teleport away from the Hunter after a short time when in melee range.
At half health, his attacks gain a greater reach, he may shoot more than once during his crossbow attack, and his morning star attack causes a delayed AoE explosion. He can also make a spear appear instantly from the ground below the Hunter, use his scythe to perform a spinning move, use it to shoot waves of fire and do a jump attack at the Hunter.
- His transforming weapon could be considered a Pthumerian version of a trick weapon, suggesting Gehrman was not the first to invent this type of weapon.
