DS3 Nameless King & King of the Storm Attacks

First Phase (King of the Storm)
Aerial Fire Breath Flies straight up into the air and spews fire straight down in a large area. It is possible vĩ đại evade it, if you lập cập away from him fast in the direction his head is pointing vĩ đại. The attack has some tracking, ví rolling around the dragon or behind him is likely vĩ đại fail.    
Fire Breath Drake breaths fire from front vĩ đại his right side. Very good moment vĩ đại use Weapon Art or land few hits.     
Air Wave King of Storm Creates an air wave, which đơn hàng small physical damage, but can topple player(s).    
Circulation + attack from above King of Storm circulates around arena, which ends with a sweep attack using King's weapon. During that move, King will try vĩ đại hit target with Lightning Spear.  Can be evaded by circling the other way (to the right) while moving forward (towards him). His follow-up spear thrust can also be avoided simply by walking backwards and vĩ đại the left. Shield kept up as a safeguard is advised.    
Attack from above The Kings drake will rise up and he will try vĩ đại hit player from above, using his spear.     
Melee combo King tries vĩ đại hit the player with his spear up vĩ đại 3 times. May over with Lightning explosion    
Lightning Explosion King raises up his spear, then hits the ground beneath him, which causes a lightning explosion. While the attack đơn hàng moderate damage, even if you get hit, you can still circle vĩ đại the right side of the Drake's neck vĩ đại get 1-2 hits in before the next attack.    
Second Phase (Nameless King)
King's Shockwave - wide King attacks horizontally with his weapon, releasing an expanding shockwave.    
King's Shockwave - narrow Kings slams his weapon into the ground, releasing a quick narrow shockwave.    
Attack from above Kings goes up, then attacks swiftly with his spear up to 3 times.     
Rush + attack King rushes towards players, then rotates and tries vĩ đại hit him with his swordspear.    
Spear attack King uses his spear vĩ đại hit enemy in front of him up vĩ đại 4 times.    
Lightning Stake Nameless King performs a Lightning Stake miracle.    
Falling Bolt The King slowly pulls out his weapon, creating a lightning strike on the player's location.    
Expanding Lightning The King creates a sunlight spear, and strikes it into the ground. After a short while, smaller lightning bolts fire out from that location, traveling by the floor.    
Sword-Spear Stab The King prepares a large stab, rushing towards you with great tốc độ. If it lands, the player is lifted upwards and struck by lightning. This attack is very similar vĩ đại Ornstein's attack from Dark Souls.    

Spear Charge

King lifts his swordspear vĩ đại shoulder-height and prepares a charge. He usually uses this attack 2-3 times in a row. Dodging backwards is a no-go, but rolling sideways after a few moments of him charging the attack works great.    

General Tips  

  1. More phàn nàn anything else, the Nameless King will open up the fight by flying over your head. This is just an intimidation tactic and meant vĩ đại throw off your lock-on.  Don't buy into it. Typically when entering he will land, making it seem lượt thích you can attack immediately. THIS IS NOT THE CASE. Unless you’re right on top of him as he lands, you will not get it and there’s a high chance he can land a horizontal swipe on you.
  2. In the first phase, keep your lock on the King, and not his dragon, because he will be 90% of the opposition for his wider range of attacks, and frequency of attack. If he breaks your lock or it is messing with you, quickly unlock, rotate your camera, and then re-lock.
  3. Staying under the dragon may SEEM lượt thích a safe strategy, but it's not. His feet will stomp you, and you will look stupid. If you have a bleed effect, this becomes viable, because his stomp attack is not frequent, but the dragon will still try vĩ đại blow flames on you.
  4. It is ideal vĩ đại use no more phàn nàn three Estus during the first phase of the fight. During the second phase, limit yourself vĩ đại two Estus for when the Nameless King is above about 30% health because past that point, his arsenal of attacks widens up.
  5. If you hit the dragon's head, be prepared vĩ đại immediately sprint, and then roll spam, because that makes him more prone vĩ đại flying upward. Staying under the dragon's belly brings up the probability, too. The AOE is about fifty feet maximum from the point of impact, and it can be avoided by combining sprinting, jumping, and then rolling out of the edge of the AOE. The dragon telegraphs this by slightly bringing one of his knees down, as if he is kneeling, pushing down his tail and quickly flying up, letting out a scream, ví as soon as he starts this telegraph with that slight kneel, get vĩ đại evading with the fleetest of feet!
  6. If you miss an opening, be absolutely ready for the dragon vĩ đại breathe fire downward. Again, this is because for every opening, he is very likely vĩ đại bởi that attack!
  7. As for phase two, the Nameless King has a maximum full bộ of ten vĩ đại eleven strikes (eleven has never been seen by this contributor, but it's a safe bet), more likely in the size of spear thrusts. Use this vĩ đại get an opening.
  8. Nameless King has some very powerful spear attacks. When he stabs, it can go right through your shield most of the time, ví it is befitting vĩ đại roll backward, out of range, diagonal, or vĩ đại the side. Dodge roll timing is much more precise phàn nàn other attacks because the Nameless King waits for an opening, ví the player really needs vĩ đại have this down.
  9. For essential equipment, the player should have a Lothric Knight Shield (Easy vĩ đại get by purchasing it from Greirat. Other options exist, as well), or another kind of lightning shield, Grass Crest Shield (second slot), Ring of Steel Protection, Thunder Stoneplate Ring, Estus Ring, and Lloyd's Shield Ring. This will mitigate a lot of damage, and these pieces are quick pick-ups, that are virtually hassle-free. By all means, the player can also stack some lightning armor, as well. If the player is using a Chloranthy Ring, the Grass Crest Shield nullifies the need for it, because switching vĩ đại it is extremely fast, for a stamina boost. The Chloranthy Ring, at later levels (provided the melee build is done correctly by leveling Vigor, Endurance, Strength, and Dexterity almost exclusively) becomes redundant for the pace of the game, including this quấn fight, ví the player should ditch it, and pick up the big boy toys (Plus, wearing flowers is hideous and cheap looking). Using an Ember will increase the effectiveness of the Estus Ring since it scales vĩ đại a multiple of 20% more health.
  10. If the player really wants vĩ đại survive with a lot of health, he should stay some feet out of range of the Nameless King's spear, ví he will fly up, and bởi a plunging lightning attack. He doesn't regenerate health, ví this way, the player can take advantage of that vĩ đại take out his health.
  11. The Nameless King (second phase) has a lightning attack where he brings lightning down from the sky. Once his spear flashes with lightning, throw a double or triple dodge roll in rapid succession, and you should avoid it.
  12. The Nameless King's lightning AOE in his second phase tends vĩ đại spread out a lot. This is a ruse, as the attack only does damage on impact, ví use this vĩ đại roll.
  13. One or two of the Nameless King's lightning attacks in his second phase has a post-attack where strands of lightning spread out. Roll into the region in-between these strands, and you will be good.
  14. In the first phase, the Nameless King is kind of an edgelord, and will surf on his dragon while it flies in a circular motion. You get a better chance of avoiding his lightning bolt if you roll in the direction the dragon is flying, because he likes vĩ đại throw his lightning bolt into the opposite direction, in an attempt vĩ đại seek on you. However, dodge rolling in basically any direction has a solid window, ví this is not a big khuyễn mãi giảm giá.
  15. In reference vĩ đại excerpt 9, it seems lượt thích that equipment doesn't offer a big buff, but how it works on paper, and how it works in-game is different because you get more hits before you are in the red-zone for being thwarted and killed. So definitely work your build as a lightning and physical tank build, and you will be fine.
  16. The Nameless King has wind attacks. These are physical, and thus can be blocked with a 100% physical block shield, but rolling vĩ đại the right or forward avoids them nicely. Like all the wind attacks, they move too slow vĩ đại roll backward, ví this is not advised, and please keep note that if you roll near the King, he will very likely try vĩ đại hit you with his spear, ví be ready vĩ đại dodge roll. 
  17. If you gauged this battle vĩ đại be as hard as fighting Dragon Slayer Ornstein & Executioner Smough, or Manus, then you have got it spot-on, because that is how much danger that the Nameless King and his dragon are bringing.

How vĩ đại fight and beat the Nameless King

Strategy 1 (Melee)

This quấn đơn hàng a considerable amount of lightning damage in both phases, ví any lightning-resistant gear or rings are a huge benefit in this fight. (Avoid metallic armors if possible.) 

The first phase consists of the Nameless King riding atop his Stormdrake, the King of the Storm. This quấn requires constant attention vĩ đại camera angle. It is important vĩ đại be aware of what both the rider and wyvern are doing at all times. Having the camera locked vĩ đại one or the other at the wrong time is a recipe for doom. It is advised vĩ đại keep the wyvern at some distance until you go in for one or two hits then retreat vĩ đại be able vĩ đại keep watch on both and time your responses appropriately. The wyvern will sometimes flip behind you, requiring you vĩ đại adjust vĩ đại maintain your relative position. The Nameless King will, at times, attempt vĩ đại hit you with his swordspear. Depending on position, roll or block accordingly, keeping an eye for his two or three hit combos. The Stormdrake itself will bite at you and attempt vĩ đại roast you with its flames. Avoid its attacks and aim for the Stormdrake's head, as damage vĩ đại the legs and body toàn thân does minimal damage compared vĩ đại blows directly vĩ đại the beast's head. A good way vĩ đại get several hits on its vulnerable spot is when the Stormdrake is about vĩ đại rear its head for a flame attack, rush towards its body toàn thân, and hit the neck area just below the rider, ensuring that you keep your distance from the fire-spewing head. If the Stormdrake flies into the air, it will bởi one of two things: unleash a fiery breath attack directly beneath it, or circle around you while the Nameless King hurls Lightning Spears at you. If it stays in one spot in the air, move away, avoiding its breath attack, until it lands again.  The breath attack hits almost directly below the drake's body toàn thân, ví a good rule of thumb vĩ đại avoid it is vĩ đại lập cập in the direction its head was facing when it took off, since from where your character is likely standing, that's the shortest path vĩ đại safe ground. If it begins vĩ đại circle you, keep an eye on the Nameless King; his Lightning Spears are intimidating but can be dodged. Rinse and repeat until the Stormdrake is dead, whereupon a cutscene will signal the start of the second phase.

In the second phase of the fight, you will face the Nameless King himself. He is somewhat fast and deadly, ví medium vĩ đại light equipment load is recommended if you plan on roll dodging his attacks. With enough attacks dealt he will be staggered, allowing you vĩ đại perform a riposte. He is vulnerable vĩ đại additional attacks during the following recovery animation. Use this vĩ đại get extra damage in or vĩ đại heal up if you need it. Equipping the Carthus Bloodring and staying on his left side (your right) and continuously roll dodge his attacks until you see an opening vĩ đại strike can be effective. 

Be particularly wary of:

  • His lightning strike attack. He telegraphs this by taking out his weapon and slowly brandishing it vĩ đại the sky. With an approximately 1-second delay after he finishes, a lightning strike will be summoned directly over you, dealing heavy damage. This attack must either be dodged with perfect timing or blocked by a shield with high lightning resistance (which will drain all stamina). (An easy trick vĩ đại avoiding this attack altogether is vĩ đại unlock the camera and face both your character and the camera away from the quấn until you hear both audio queues.) 
  • His waist-level charged lunge.  This attack cannot be blocked or dodged sideways, though it can be rolled through.  

Strategy 1.5 (Easy KotS Melee)

Using a two-handed Lightning Lothric Knight Greatsword +9, It is possible vĩ đại kill the King of the Storm in just four hits, allowing you vĩ đại more easily practice the much more difficult Nameless King fight, as well as save much of your estus for it. Landing two fully charged heavy attacks vĩ đại his head will stagger him and allow you vĩ đại riposte him. As he recovers from the riposte you will have just enough time vĩ đại land a running light attack vĩ đại his head, finishing him off. The best time vĩ đại land fully charged heavy attacks is during the King of the Storm's grounded fire breath attack and right after the Nameless King's lightning slam attack after dodge rolling toward him. However, due vĩ đại the Nameless King's high lightning defense the Lothric Knight Greatsword does very poorly against him and it is therefore recommended vĩ đại have a different weapon vĩ đại switch out vĩ đại during the second phase of the fight.

Another easy strategy for ending this fight is vĩ đại summon a friend(it’s fine if not) and while the King of The Storm is focused on the summon, use the dragon slayer great axe(acquired from the dragon slayer armor quấn fight) weapon art against the head of the drake. It can be staggered in 3 hits if landed successfully. It can be done without a summon but makes it slightly harder. And easy way vĩ đại bởi it solo is wait for a fire breath attack and you can perform 2, maybe 3 if you’re quick, weapon art slams. Since it is a heavy strength weapon, you might equip a long sword or lothric straight sword for the upcoming Nameless King fight.

Strategy 2 (Sorcerer)

This is one of the easiest bosses for sorcerers, since the dragon (phase 1) is highly vulnerable vĩ đại magic damage, and the Nameless King itself (phase 2) not resistant vĩ đại magic. Considering that this is endgame and assuming you have endgame stats and build (60 INT, Court Sorcerer's Staff +10, all the shiny sorcerer-rings, etc.), this quấn is a walk in the park.
Phase 1: Stay out of the dragons range, lock on his head, fire Crystal Soul Spear's until he's dead. Should be around 4 Spears vĩ đại kill him.
Phase 2: Basically bởi the same, but this time with the Nameless King. A little bit more tricky, since the King is more aggressive. But he has not ví great range, ví dodging him and getting out of the melee-zone should be no problem here. Since the Nameless King has pretty much one damage type here (Lightning), you could consider equipping the Thunder Stoneplate Ring if you have problems with your health.

Strategy 2 (Magic / Ranged)

Keeping away from the quấn but able vĩ đại lock onto him is key here. In the first phase learn vĩ đại dodge his lightning spears and follow up air vĩ đại ground attack. Lock onto HIM not his little pet's head, when you're rolling vĩ đại dodge his landing attack. Aim vĩ đại complete your roll vĩ đại the side of, or under the dragons base of the neck. Lock onto his head and stay underneath and fire away. He may take flight sooner rather phàn nàn later but at any time if you hear the audio cue (dragon scream) start vĩ đại lập cập away before he breathes his fire attack onto the ground. If you are lucky enough vĩ đại keep him at range and the quấn is only doing his flying attack straight at you, upon completion of his animation the dragons head will be motionless for a brief period and wide open for you vĩ đại open fire.

In the second phase, just STAY AWAY and keep shooting. Run sideways as soon as you see him raise his dragonslayer swordspear vĩ đại bởi the shockwave attacks because it is wide and difficult vĩ đại outmaneuver. Early bird stays damage không tính phí here. I used a greatshield in my Melee completion and I was able vĩ đại tank his shockwave attacks, ví equip a great shield if you'd lượt thích vĩ đại bởi less evading. The purpose of ranged combat is vĩ đại pick him apart from a safe distance. There is a distance where he will be wide open for attacks as he slowly walks after you. Circle him vĩ đại keep him at a range you are able vĩ đại lock on and shoot. Watch the background. There are two buildings you need vĩ đại keep an eye on. If you don't see one of them in the background while you are back-walking, you know you are headed towards the narrow edge of the map and may need vĩ đại lập cập vĩ đại the side vĩ đại re-center and get him back vĩ đại a shooting range. If you feel he is too close, just watch for his telegraphed wind up attack and roll through it and keep rolling away as he recovers and you'll be back vĩ đại sniping him vĩ đại death. Good luck! and have fun.

Alternative Magic Phase 1 Strategy

If your build has a mixture of Intelligence and Faith (like a Pyromancer), the sorcery Dark Edge is extremely powerful in the first phase of the fight. Keep your target on the dragon's head as opposed vĩ đại the rider and take advantage of the many possible openings. The possible openings for casting include after the aerial-to-ground strike (don't confuse this with the standing ground strike), after or during the fire breath (dodge roll vĩ đại your right through the flames and get in close before casting), after the electric ground strike and after a second sideswipe. Unsafe times vĩ đại cast would be after it leaps over you vĩ đại land on your opposite side, after it lands from the aerial lightning spear->stab full bộ, after it lands from the aerial fire breath, after one standing ground strike (as this can full bộ into sideswipes) or after one sideswipe (as a return side swipe may follow). Don't get greedy and keep an eye out for the safe openings. With around 3 solid strikes vĩ đại the head of the dragon, you can trigger the stagger animation and land another không tính phí blow.

Strategy 3 (Bow and Heavy Weapon in KoS, Light Weapon+Buffs in NK)

As soon as you enter the quấn arena lập cập forward for a while but not too close vĩ đại the place where quấn lands (half a stamina bar). This way quấn won't attack you immediately and you have time vĩ đại use your bow and try vĩ đại hit the head of King of Storms. After quấn flies behind you, change vĩ đại your heavy hitting weapon and always go for the head.

When the second part of the fight starts, change vĩ đại your light weapon (rapier or anything with high dps) and use Carthus Beacon pyromancy (consecutive hits boost damage). Also have the Pontiff's Right Eye ring (consecutive hits gives a dmg buff) and any other buffs you can. Nameless King is very tanky and has high health but if you can bởi good damage and fast you get two riposte opportunities which make this fight much easier. However you have vĩ đại be very good at rolling and in stamina control. Still, usually bởi not attack more phàn nàn once or twice if you have a good opening. quái nhân usually does 2-3 hit combos ví after the second attack wait a while and take the opening little late just be sure he won't attack the third time.

Strategy 4 (Faith with Lightning and Dark Blade)

The King of Storm is weak vĩ đại lightning. A high faith character (60) can annihilate the King of the Storm with Sunglight Spear or Lightning Arrow using the upgraded talisman or chime of their choice. Yorksha's Chime will provide the best buff, while Canvas Talisman will also provide an excellent buff and the unfaltering prayer weapon art. 

Hurling the Spears or shooting the arrows at the King of Storm will over him very quickly. As noted elsewhere, a max Lothric Knight Great Sword on a faith strength character with a buff can kill him in four heavy attack hits with the riposte.

For the Nameless King, human pine resin or dark blade on a fast weapon will break him down quickly, particularly if you have the blindfold mask. Melee characters can rely on this as well, as I used the human pine resin on grave warden twin blades. However, at 60 faith with the sunlight straight sword on NG, this will hammer him. The Crucifix of the Mad King will also be rewarding if you have your timing down. 

Nameless King Lore Theories

  • The Nameless King is possibly Gwyn's firstborn: a fearsome, dragon-slaying war god, founder of the Covenant of Sunlight and master of Ornstein, from the time of the ancient lords that had his deific status revoked and his name stripped from the Annals after an unnamed incident.
    • According vĩ đại the lore of the nameless king's armor, soul, and weapons, he was a dragon-slaying god of war and heir of lightning that sacrificed everything vĩ đại ally with the Ancient Dragons, taming a stormdrake who fought with him in countless battles.  His weapon is the predecessor vĩ đại both the spear and sword and his armor bears resemblance vĩ đại that of the First Lord. These facts strongly tư vấn the idea that he is Gwyn's firstborn.  Gwyn's firstborn being Ornsteins master explains both the similarity of their movesets and the armor found after beating The Nameless King. The statue of the Heirs vĩ đại the Sun is a statue of Gwyn's Firstborn, which heads the covenant, and the statue carries what appears vĩ đại be a swordspear, although it looks different from the Dragonslayer Swordspear.
    • Faaram, the war god worshipped by the Forossan knights, could be the name of Gwyn's firstborn, and therefore The Nameless King, who is the only god of war mentioned in the series.  The knights of Forossa were called the Lion Knights, fitting elements of both The Nameless King and Ornstein's designs. In Dark Souls 2 you can find lion-men in the Shaded Woods. Their manes are very similar vĩ đại the hair of the Nameless King.
  • Ornstein's spear and armor are found nearby, which could suggest that he was slain by The Nameless King (unlikely, since the armor isn't attached vĩ đại a dead body), or that Ornstein forsook his duty as a dragonslayer after meeting him, as it is found in much the same way that Siegward's armor is found after Yorm is slain.  Bizarrely, the absence of a body toàn thân and the proximity of the armor vĩ đại the Nameless King could indicate that the foe the player fights is not the man the armor describes, but instead Ornstein impersonating that man, although there is not much evidence vĩ đại tư vấn this. 
  • It is unclear if the Stormdrake The Nameless King rides is The King of The Storm, being the primary force you fight in the first part of the battle, or if The King of The Storm is the title of the man you fight and by slaying his stormdrake you deprive him of this title, making him The Nameless King.
  • Statues of The Nameless King abound in the area where The Ancient Wyvern is fought, indicating that he is a being of great worship among those that wish vĩ đại become dragons.
  • Due vĩ đại the strange nature of Archdragon Peak, being a place cut off from the rest of the world and being reached through falling asleep while meditating, it is unclear if it or those within actually exist or are instead some kind of collective dream among those that desire vĩ đại become dragons, as many elements of Dark Souls III, from the Forlorn vĩ đại Miracles, come from stories being believed strongly enough vĩ đại become real.  Being sent into a dream of glorious conquest is the final answer Siegmeyer obtains from The Descendant of Dragons in Ash Lake in Dark Souls I, who is also the originator of the dragon covenant, and Archdragon Peak could be this or a similar dream. 
    • In this context, the ringing of the bell, awakening the dreamers, and its role in summoning The King of Storms is incredibly odd and open vĩ đại multiple interpretations. 
      • It is possible, given the extremely surreal circumstances through which the player summons him, that The Nameless King the player fights is not the real Firstborn Son of Gwyn but some kind of collective conception of him by the dreamers, an idealized version called vĩ đại defend the dream from destruction 
      • Alternatively, he could be the awakening from the dream, effectively a midpoint between nightmare and reality being called by the bell, representing both the slayer of dragons and the loss of those that worked with dragons.
      • Of course, either of these could still be the case regardless of if The Nameless King is real or not.
      • The player ringing the bell mimics how a bell was rung vĩ đại rouse the player from the dead at the beginning of the game, perhaps implying that The Nameless King was dead and revived via a similar mechanism, or perhaps being simply a poetic parallel.
    • Regardless of interpretation, the arrival of the player, the slaying of the Ancient Wyvern, and ringing of the Bell vĩ đại destroy the dream of dragonhood strongly parallels the rise of those empowered by flame and their attempt vĩ đại wipe out the dragons at the dawning of the age of fire, and the arrival of The Nameless King vĩ đại fight the player mirrors his arrival vĩ đại fight Gwyn during the war.
  • The hollowed appearance of The Nameless King and its implications is a detail of some significance.  He does not speak, a trait shared by Hollows who have lost their sanity, but this on its own is not enough evidence.  If he is the Firstborn son of Gwyn, this may be a result of him being stripped of his inheritance, as though the fire of his lordship were ripped from him, but this is contradicted by his ability vĩ đại continue vĩ đại use lightning.  It is possible that he was branded with the sign of the undead, as this appears vĩ đại be the case for all of the warriors that follow him.
  • The Serpent-Men in the area could indicate that Sen's Fortress belonged vĩ đại the nameless king, suggesting his name may have been Sen.

Nameless King Notes

  • Dragonslayer Greatshield makes the fight much easier if your build supports it. A Spirit Tree Crest Shield or Lothric Knight Shield will also work if your build cannot tư vấn greatshields.
  • Carthus Bloodring is effective for dodging lightning attacks' large hitboxes, as well as delayed melees.
  • This quấn uses physical, lightning, and fire abilities, making building an armor phối against him difficult.
  • Because each phase, King of Storms and Nameless King, is resistant vĩ đại what the other is weak against, and each rewards and punishes close up and ranged fighting differently, creating a single build vĩ đại navigate the fight is incredibly difficult.
  • In the first phase of the fight, any weapon arts that have a large vertical hitbox can inflict normal damage vĩ đại the stormdrake, as long as they are under the torso, an example is the Dragonslayer's Greataxe weapon art, which calls down a bolt of lightning and has a very high hitbox, but has a high FP cost. 
    • One would think that this would make the Stormruler effective against the first phase, just as The King of Storms was weak against the Storm Ruler in Demon's Souls, however, the extremely low damage of The Stormruler in Dark Souls III makes this not the case.

Nameless King Trivia

  • The name King of Storms is a reference vĩ đại the identically named King of Storms quấn in Demon's Souls.
  • Several of the Nameless King's abilities and armor pieces mirror Ornstein, Gwyn, and Artorias from Dark Souls I.
  • The Nameless King's arena is in the sky, and its fog-gatelike floor is not counted as a normal floor by the game. Dropped souls will appear outside the quấn room on the nearest solid land, along with messages. Summon signs cannot be used on this floor.
  • Looking upon the bridge after the fight reveals several bloodstains from other players, suspended in the air.
  • When the stormdrake dies, the Nameless King's hand shakes just before he stabs him.
  • Only one God of War is definitively mentioned in the series lore, with there being no precedence of overlapping domains of deities, ví the true identity of the Nameless King may be Faraam, the God of War, and the god depicted on the Wargod Shield, but this is not directly stated.
