    Today I did a silly thing...

    Post by SlakeMoth on Fri Nov 02, 2012 8:05 pm

    I'm playing the DLC completely blind. I haven't a clue what's going on or what to expect because I haven't looked at any vids or walkthroughs. In a way this is kind of nice but......today I saw a fog door and thought I'd go through it because I've done this before, like in the Undead Burg and you just go through to another area. Big mistake. I came face to face with this mad dude called ARTORIAS. No prizes for guessing what happened. I guess I wont be going back there in a hurry. Not until I've levelled up a bit anyways.

    Arty is quite easy, just practice dodging his moves. But you might want a strong weapon because he has a lot of health. And I could help you if you want. Sl? and System?

    Yeah arty can be pretty strong. I would really recomend a strong shield with 100% physical protection. If you cant get one because of your stats than atleast use a decent armor set that lets you dodge easily. All in all its not really a hard fight, you just have to be ready for some of his combo moves that really destroy your stamina.

    Yeah. I just love fighting Arty, he's just so fun to fight with his jump attacks and forward lung attacks. He just keeps you on your toes.

    That's not silly! You're going the right way. And sadly, he's standing in your way of progressing through the DLC, so you'll have to go through him. Keep at it, you'll get it! I know how far you've come, I'm certain you'll overcome this would-be conqueror of the abyss too.

    (I recommend practicing your dodging. But if that's not your play-style, do what works for you. He can be beaten any way you like. He's kind of like Gwyn, only he attacks faster and can't be parried. silly But he also gives you a lot more room to breathe than Gwyn does. Gives you openings to heal, even.)

    Good luck, have fun!

    100% agree. He is my favorite boss battle in the dlc, and he always offers a challenge. Plus he looks amazing with that dark stuff coming off of him. I wish the actual armor that you can get had that.

    haha Slake I did the same thing too. I thought there are never 2 boos fog gates in a row, and there wouldnt be a boss so soon after that short area. Must be just a normal one. I died pretty quick lol.

    Cheers everyone, I don't feel such a dope now and thanks for the tips and encouragment. I've decided to try and get my strength stat up to 50 so I can use Havels Shield (46 at the mo') and a wacking big club or something because I've found that sometimes going toe to toe with these beauties is the best way for me. I'm not very good at dodging or parrying and my reactions are a bit slow and I panic easily. Also it doesn't help that my character is in newgame+.

    When I was approaching the boss fog, I was kind of thinking it was Artorias just because the coliseum looked like the one where Artorias was in the trailer, but I just wrote it off and figured I was much too early on to be fighting who the DLC was named after. Then I died
