Wights are spectral foes who levitate above the battlefield. They attack using elemental balls of magic, and must be forced to the ground before you can properly damage them.
Wights are rare opponents, but they can be trouble when they show up. Their magical attacks are far-reaching and quite powerful, and only strong ranged attacks will be enough to knock them out of the air.
Once they're down to earth, get in there and deal as much damage as you can. They have a very high stun threshold, so stunning them isn't really an option.
Also, be mindful that Wights can summon three Wisps if they're left untouched for long enough. Not a huge issue, but it makes actually getting in on the Wight more of a hassle than it needs to be.
What's more, killing a Wight can result in yet more Wisps taking to the field — but by that point, taking out a few more Wisps is no big deal.
