How to Beat Hoplite

Attack From Behind

Hoplites have a shield on their front body which greatly reduces the damage they take. You'll want to attack them from behind to avoid hitting their shield and thus, deal more damage.

Use Fire Attacks

Using fire against the Hoplites will severely damage them. This is especially effective when hoplites are grouped up like in the Phalanx boss fight.
