Wraith Battle Strategy

Parry their Attacks

The attacks of the Wraith are very easy to read and the requirement to parry their attacks is pretty low. You only need a Bronze Buckler in order to parry their attacks so this makes it much easier to parry and counterattack in melee fights.

Use a Bow and Arrow

Another good tactic is to shoot arrows at the Wraiths. Wraiths still take a lot of damage from arrows and they only have melee attacks. This clearly gives you an advantage since they will be forced to chase you if you attack from a range.
