    Advice for SL35 and Artorias

    Post by mannyl on Sat Oct 27, 2012 3:30 pm

    I'm stuck at Artorias and I'm SL35 on xbox. This dude just seems to rip me to shreds because I have such low life and can't take more than one hit. After I take a hit its just me trying to catch up by getting a chance to drink (which is hard to do). My xbox tag is "Manuel Leal" is anyone wants to offer help or get on their toon to help.

    Prayers? Harsh language?

    This is probably a shade too low, but if you can find someone to summon, do it. The key is having someone to run interference and give you a reprieve from his aggro.

    The way I beat him was to hit him once after each series of attacks. Sure, it takes a long time but it works.

    I beat him just minutes ago. It was easy, granted I was 128. But, the main thing is to perfect his dodges. Really easy too, his moves are predictable. If you can dodge him easily, try finding times to attack. Best bet is to buff up your strongest weapon. Good luck mate!

    do you have high enough strength to wield any great shields? the eagle doesn't have too too huge a prereq if memory serves. my first run at him I used my great shield dragon build and he sorta just bounced me around the arena, not really doing any damage, and let me poke him to death

    I solo'd him at your soul level on new game.

    He was able to one shot me so taking hits was not an option.

    Some key points to consider
    -Str builds will have an easier time with him due to stuns. 2 handed zweihander is your best friend.

    -pyro rips him down quite easily. I used chaos storm, but great combustion is your best bet here along with chaos fireball.

    -I hear mages lay waste at low soul levels due to crystal soul spear/CHSM combos.

    -Dont focus on healing yourself. Only heal when he goes into try hard mode or at the end of one of his strong attacks due to his cool down time.

    -Stun him when tries to go into try hard mode if you are not low on hp.

    -Lightning does not work well.

    -The best buff for him IMO is grassing. You'll need the stam regen and a good stability shield. I used silver knight.

    Good luck big grin
