Greydwarf Brute Battle Strategy

Use a Bow

Using a Bow might be the easiest way to deal with Greydwarf Brutes. These enemies are naturally slow and they can't keep up with you while you're shooting them.

Parry their Attacks

Greydwarf Brutes only have one attack and that is their overhead attack. You can easily parry this attack using a Wood Shield and give yourself an opening to counterattack.
