    About bosses and pvp in the Royal Wood (spoilers)

    Post by ublug on Thu Oct 25, 2012 10:04 pm

    Anyone know for certain how the Royal Wood works for co-op/pvp?
    I would like to add this info to the wiki, but I'm not quite sure if I've got it right. As far as I can tell:

    Artorias is the boss of the Royal Wood area, and Kalameet is only considered a mini-boss or environmental hazard at first. You can still kill Kalameet, but you have to use ranged attacks. You can also fight invaders down in Kalameet's area.

    Once Artorias is slain, you can no longer summon or be invaded in the woods. Kalameet can still be killed with ranged attacks, but you have to do it solo.

    But after Gough shoots down Kalameet, the fog to its boss-area appears and Kalameet is 'promoted' to area-boss. The Royal Wood is once again open for invasions and jolly co-op. As a bonus you can even fight invaders in Artorias's boss arena, since the fog between the arena and the woods is no longer there.

    Sweet, I just beat Ol' Kallameet today (got the Obsidian GS obviously) so next run through I'll leave him intact and make the Royal Woods a place of PvP.

    You can't kill Kalameet without having Gough shot him down first. Even if you use ranged attacks.

    Also, when you kill Artorias, you can't be invaded or summon people anymore. That is, until you "activate" Kalameet as a boss, that happens when Gough shots him down. That's why when he is up, there aren't any fog doors before fighting him.

    Anyway I'm not sure if you can summon people to fight Kalameet (after you "activate" him), because I haven't seen any signs myself, but I'm sure it will work.

    I confirm you can be invaded after you kill Artorias and Gough shot down Kalameet.

    There lots of people that kill Artorias, activate Kalameet as a boss, and then wait to be invaded, and then they use Artorias' boss area, as a awesome PvP arena.

    Interesting...I had no idea it worked this way. I will go get Gough so he can take care of business.

    If you kill Artorias you can still summon people for Kalameet. That's the way I did it.

    You can, I have done it, but it's possibly harder than fighting him head on (depending on build).
    He drops the same amount of souls + the calamity ring. It could even be possible to snipe off his tail, but you'll have to be a god at aiming.
