    DLC bosses resistant to magic

    Post by godpenguin on Tue Oct 09, 2012 12:19 am

    It seems that all the bosses in the dlc area are highly resistant to magic? My int build at 44 int and wielding the MLGS 1h only does like 90 dmg per swing on guardian and Manus. Anyone else also notice this?

    My +5 enchanted Scythe worked fine in every single boss :suspect:

    Do you perhaps lack the STR requirement for the sword?

    with 44 int if you hit all your SS and CSS on the guardian with the crown of dusk and the bellowing ring is more than enough to kill him :suspect:

    I did notice Artorias was really resistant. I was trying to do this playthrough pure magic but I never had enough castings even with 5 attunement slots to get him down. Ended up getting a BSS just for that fight.

    I haven't had a mage up against them, but they seem resistant to elements too. My +5 Chaos Falchion only did 75 damage on Artorias (2-handed R1's). That's pretty low damage for NG.

    Yeah, I know Artorias at least is really fire resistant.

    I know my weapons were fine, there was no warning popping up and durability was in the 200s. Its funny, Manus would only take 90 dmg per hit from my 1h MLGS but Gwyn takes 300.

    My spells seemed very effective against the Guardian and Artorias. Hunting down Manus right now.
