    Where to Get the Bloodhound’s Step Ash of War

    The Bloodhound Step Ash of War is dropped by a Night’s Cavalry. These enemies are strong, on horseback, and will only appear in The Lands Between at night.

    The Night’s Cavalry you’ll want to seek out for this Ash of war is in Dragobarrow, a region in northern Caelid. You’ll be able to find him roaming the bridge north of Lenne’s Rise.

    Simply travel to this area at night and you’ll easily spot the Night Cavalry. Defeat him and the Bloodhound Step Ash of War is yours.

    What Does the Bloodhound’s Step Ash of War Do?

    This skill lets you become invisible for a few moments as you dodge away at high speed. The distance you’ll travel is significantly further than the game’s ordinary dodge.

    Performing this skill will also trigger your invincibility frames. This means you won’t be able to get damaged while you’re performing this traversal skill. This is great for when dealing with enemies that have wide-reaching attacks. Or attacks that string together for a considerable amount of time.

    A very good example of this is Malenia’s Waterfowl Dance attack. This attack is infamously difficult to avoid. With the Bloodhound’s Step, however, you’ll be able to do just that with relative ease.

    From dealing with the monsters and bosses in the world to fighting other players online, the Bloodhound Step Ash of War is undeniably efficient. To boot, it is one of the coolest-looking skills in the game.

    The Bloodhound’s Step Ash of War can be applied to any melee armaments, as long as the weapon can be infused with an Ash of War. That means its only exclusions are unique weapons that come with their own Ashes of War, which are unremovable.
