    Giant Skeleton SOB

    When you first enter Tomb of the Giants, that Giant skeleton is just standing there. I hit him with at least 8 Black fire bombs with seemingly no effect. What type of damage works best with them? Thanks

    On a NG run double-handing the Silver Knight Spear, preferably upgraded to a +5, will obliterate just about everything you come across in the TOG. Providing you get your timing right that is, otherwise you're going to find yourself being b-slapped all over the gaff. Good luck! big grin

    They are weak to fire, so buff a weapon with charcoal resin? The key, however, is to dodge around his attacks (without falling off, of course). The best one is their ground slam.

    Also be extra warey of it's kick attack, as this has a surprisingly long reach, and has caught me out on more than one occasion.

    I tend to fight the Giant Skellies as if I'm BS fishing. I don't know if I've ever BS'd one (not sure if you can) but spinning around them (keeping the terrain in mind) is my way to fend them off.

    This may be your first playthrough so you might not know that...
    Spoiler:
    you can run past all the giant skellies really easily and reach the first bonfire after Pinwheel IF you know where you are going

    You're probably missing your firebombs, the giant skellies don't have all that much health.

    Unless you're on NG+infinity 2 Black Firebombs should take him out. Maybe three, but probably not. Like Ghadis said, they don't have much hp. Neither do the skellie dogs. Thank God.

    2 hand the zwiehander and use the strong attack, it will smash them flat, then hit them again. If youre zwie is upgraded enuf the second hit will kill them. works on the dogs two.
