If that fails, with the skeletons getting too close, switch to melee strikes and abilities. The below list illustrates the main abilities of Nicholaus the Fallen in combat: 

  • Unholy Flash: Nicholaus will teleport to a different location and inflict AoE damage when he comes back. 
  • Blasphemous Blast: He throws one Unholy projectile that explodes after hitting.
  • Pestilence: Nicholaus launches three consecutive projectiles which deal Unholy damage and Amplify, which increases the damage received. 
  • Necromancy: Nicholaus brings many skeletons by lifting his staff.

Having eliminated Nicholaus the Fallen, you will be in line for some great awards and abilities. Players will get two Vampire Powers, with one of them being Pestilence that Nicholaus himself uses in the battle.

The other one in is Ward of the Damned. It increases movement speed and temporarily stops frontal attacks from enemies. Additionally, a skeleton will arrive if you are hit nonetheless. Though it is not too strong, this can provide a nice distraction with its defence during tough battles.

These are the powers that Nicholaus’ defeat will grant, but the main goal of being victorious is unlocking the Study. This is a research workstation that is vital for having advanced technology that helps players mover from early game powers to mid-game. Therefore, the Study will be crucial in battling future bosses alongside furthering your overall progress in the game.

Thus, the above mentioned guide will help in defeating Nicholaus the Fallen for the same.
