Similar to Hunters, they can hit you despite them being off screen. Always be ready to use Light Healing to remove Paralysis. Knights should rush in to attack them (preferably with a fire enchanted weapon (like a Fire Sword)). Mages are better against a Carniphila, because they use runes to attack them from a distance. Use Fire Damage-based attacks/runes. Magic Shield is useful for low level Mages to absorb the large amount of damage received. Paladins should shoot them or use runes.
