Another projection is that of Blaidd , the man-wolf. You will find him in Mistwood , in the ruins of the same name. To summon him, you need to visit the area at night. Once you hear a wolf howling, you need to get closer to the ruins and use the finger snap gesture, which is received from Kale the merchant in Limgrave, in Church of Elleh to be exact.
