Castlevania Harmony of Despair walkthrough: Chapter 4 “Esquisse of Violence”

There are a few enemies along the way that may give you some trouble in this chapter, but not too much. I particularly have trouble with one of the knights that I later fight in the video. You can avoid this knight all together and another one later.

In order to get to Brauner, the boss, you will need to travel through the paintings to get there. Travel through the map opening chests, and switching the levers for the spotlights. I chose to use the Hrunting during this chapter again, though other weapons are still suitable here. Such weapons as the Gladius and Lance could be used. However, for the boss fight the Lance might just be a little too slow as I finish off Brauner extremely fast by repeatedly attacking.

Part 2 shows the Chapter 4 Boss Fight:

This is the boss fight with Brauner. As you will see, I defeat him extremely fast, as I found him to be incredibly easy. Just keep attacking him repeatedly without moving away from him. I use one Super Potion to restore my health completely once it gets too low. It would be best to take health items with you, even if you do not plan to do attack him my way.

This boss has several attacks you will need to watch out for:

  • One which he sends out 2 giant green pinwheels, they will poison you. Just like all the other bosses, some of these attacks can drain your health quite quickly.
  • When he starts drawing different patterns ( X, >, or = ), right afterwards brush strokes of blood will appear on the screen. These will do damage to you, but you can strike them to get rid of them.
  • Another attack he summons paintings to attack you.
  • He can also send a swarm of black skulls.
