    King Allant Soul Level 1. Advice please

    Post by Mr.Faith on Wed Oct 10, 2012 2:11 pm

    So i did the sl.1 challenge and i made it to Allant but omg he is just impossible.
    I got warding by using ring of magical nature and a +10 scmitar, +4 moon winged spear, a +3 dark buckler and light armor. But i cant get some good hits on him, i can only do 3 hit combo before i run out of stamina and then he hits me.
    Does anyone have a good tactic on beating him? Anything will be helpfull. Im down to my last 10 emphemrial eyes...

    Dodge him, no use trying to block his attacks at level 1. You could also try two-handing your scimitar and apply turpentine, or make a long sword or battle axe (+10 or dragon). If you need more ephemereal eye stones you can kill saint urbain and farm the respawning black phantom in the pit urbain was originally trapped in.

    Keep allant at a medium distance. Dodge his ranged wind attacks by running or rolling to either side. When he charges up his aoe attack, run in for a heavy hit, then quickly retreat out of range. Roll through his long range rush attack. Dodge or avoid his combos. Deal chip damage after he's done attacking. He only has one surprise attack that should catch you off guard, a fast medium range rush without any telltale wind-up.

    I Gwyn'd him. All Ripostes. But on the other hand I had huge vitality so I could (and DID) take the occasional hit.

    Very helpfull advice, thank you very much...

    Problem is i only got 12 dex 9 str so if i use a wep with stats above this i need to go dragon or magic or the wep wont do any damage, but i figure with a spear i could still maintain a medium distance to him but it seemes using carefull tactics as you describe is the only way to go on sl1...

    Thanks again, i will try it out:)

    Two hand the weapon for a 50% str bonus, and you can wield weapons with a str requirement of 13. A longsword, for example, is fast, deals good damage (dragon), and won't consume too much of your stamina when attacking. But a +10 scimitar should be more than enough to kill him with, apply black turpentine when he's doing the aoe charge up for a bit more ar.
