Lord number two is down, he was surprisingly easy once I knew where to hit him. A nice reward for having spent a good chunk of Saturday slogging through the catacombs. I'm now in Irithyll which is easily the most beautiful area in the game so far.

I killed a stray demon, and found a sharp gem AND two large titanite shards, so upgraded my Uchigatana to +4 and increased it's Dex scaling \o/

Fuck the swamps though.... horrible place.
IMO :P :wink: :P :wink: :P :wink:

I think I'm at the Prince Lorthic fight, so I've gone back to finish off the secret area's, im onto the nameless king fight in the dragon place, apparently its the hardest boss in the game.

All finished now, went for the Evil endings. The Dark Sword if pretty fucking powerful, doesn't hit as hard as the great axe but its scales A for strengh and can stun lock fairly easy. I also can't believe I didn't noticed Poise wasn't working until I read it on reddit.

I've spent a long time recently wandering through areas without finding a boss.

So.. I seem to have reached something of a stalling point.

I have access to about four bosses now.

Spoiler: show
Pontiff Sulyvnaijwedo or whatever his name is
Old Demon King
Dancer of the Boreal Valley
Yhorm the giant


and a couple of different areas and I just keep getting my arse handed to me, spectacularly so. Up until now content was challenging but not "three hits and your dead from this seemingly unavoidable AOE I just did" hard - Any ideas of what I'm doing wrong? :(
IMO :P :wink: :P :wink: :P :wink:

I can't say I noticed any sudden spike with any of those areas. Are you dodging a lot or relying on your shield to tank damage? If you are doing the later then I can see how you might be having an issue. You have two options if you really are struggling: farm souls to gain a few levels so you can withstand more hits and hit harder or summon help for the bosses.

How many Estus flasks are you at now and what power are they?

I've got 11 +5, and relying on dodging. It seems lots of these bosses have weird timings or just really big hit areas :(

Last I saw of him he was asleep after killing the demon thing. Haven't seen him since!

Also I found Anya in the catacombs but don't know if I need to do something there :/

Siegmeyer couldn't hack it in my game, got squished whilst I was busy trying to figure out the sword.

You can find Siegmeyer in the well outside the cathedral. You need to get him his armour back.


Took out Yohrm after a bit of trouble, it was primarily the path to the boss that was annoying me about that. Once I learned where to stand in order to be able to charge my weapon Yohrm was fairly straight forward, but still annoying.
