    Don't panic and try to keep the camera on them at all times.

    When he teleports wait for 1-2 seconds before you roll otherwise you will get hit. Basically roll but only when you absolutely need to roll.

    Also you can punish him for almost all hits.

    I will not lie when I say that they took me 2 hours to beat. It's a good fight.

    Yeah you can run and hide behind it but then the croc-dog will jump on you while you're exploring the marshes under the bridge :D

    Well it certainly may seem that way because a lot of bosses have a complex moveset that trigger when specific conditions are met. Although there probably is some randomness with certain moves.

    Exactly, they're actually easier in confined spaces since it's easier to close the distance with all their jumping and running.

    But you can cheese him easy in the marsh if you have no self-respect. Just sprint for the sewer opening that leads to Siegward in the kitchen and snipe him from the tunnel since he can't fit through the entrance. He'll disappear after a few hits but you can bait him back by running into the marsh again and he keeps the same health bar so a few rounds kills him.

    I tried some red orb pvp in undead settlement and from 20+ invasions all were with ganks.

    The only time I won was when the host jumped in some pit by mistake. On the other hand I won everytime I was invaded :)

    I've been having the same about everywhere I tried. Behind Pontiff Suhlyvahn and at Anor Londo are the only half decent places I'm finding and even those are a crapshoot. Even with forced invasion from the red eye orb it seems mostly to be people standing outside the boss doors trying to summon and gone by the time you get there.

    i can confirm it's not true. hugged him many times and he used arrows many times (first time he killed me was when i hugged him and he did his arrowspam for the first time... i didn't know what it was so i rolled to the side, the arrows caught me and stunlocked to death. "good" times)

    There's probably some luck involved IDK,
    Show Spoiler
    but he usually uses his bow when you're either too far away or hugging him, if you keep a small distance and you're within his scythe range, he'll go for his routine swing attacks which you can avoid, get behind him, land a couple of hits and then back up a bit again so he'll either do another swing, or teleport. That's not really easy to do and maybe it's not foolproof, but my mage guy was insta-killed by the arrow rain in the second phase, so I just really needed to avoid that.

    The arrows are super obvious anyways, the windup on that attack takes forever. Though I can see the second phase version being annoying if it targets your incompetant buddy and he drags them onto you.

    If you get hit by the arrows, stay on the ground. You die if you try to get up again.

    Finally finished the damn thing today. Soul of Cinder really was a great fucking boss to close the series. That Gwyn theme that started playing during the second half of the fight.... completely unexpected and right in the feels, man. Right in the fucking feels.

    Yeah I don't know why I thought DS3 might grab me when the original didn't. As much as I want to like it, I don't. It feels like trial and error and having to play though the same areas over and over and over to make 5% more progress and do it again is just not fun.

    I guess I'm just not hardcore enough of a gamer!!!!!! Back to Super Pokemans Rainbow!

    Ya know, if this were your run-o-the-mill forum, I might've even replied in a serious fashion. But this is the 'Dex, where every dumb cunt thinks he can out-edge the other dumb cunt, so I'll just post the theme to give you menstrual cramps.

    Well DS1 is easier than DS3, especially in the bosses department. But really co-op is part of the game too, so just summon some dude to help you.

    This isn't the norm.. Like there are tricky parts in the game but if you are scratching and crawling to get anywhere.. Probably time to start co-oping.. I wouldn't have fun doing that either.
