    Artorias 'n' me...

    Post by SlakeMoth on Mon Nov 05, 2012 1:34 pm

    Just don't get on. I'm just hopeless in this fight. He comes at me like a mole on a motorbike and I've no chance. It's going to be a long hard slog I can see that. The verse below just about sums up what happens (apologies, I've already posted this in the Off Topic section but I think it's worth repeating).

    On First Meeting Artorias.

    Here I stand with sword in hand

    The fog door in my sights,

    I step on through, say how d'you do

    Then out go all the lights!

    a mole on a motorbike

    I could think of many things to call him Slake, but can safely say that is not one of them! lol

    +1 for cheering me up whilst I'm at work! cheers

    You tackled the Firesage and rest of the nasties, you'll slay this beast of a former knight yet!

    Morning Slake, how ya doin with ol Art?

    I finally managed to overcome him at around 2am this morning (barely), and so I'm absolutely shattered this morning as I've had less than two hours sleep before coming to work, but it was something that had to be done. lol

    If it helps I found the easiest way to whittle his HP down was to bait him into his flying power slam, rolling out of the way just as he was beginning his downward descent, as this allowed me to get a single hard hit in. This still turned out to be one heck of a frustrating fight (I'm still pretty crap at dodging his attacks), and I lost count the amount of times I got him down to being one hit away from death only for the little s... to then plant me firmly in the ground sending me back off to the bonfire. Oh the joys of Dark Souls! lol

    It was all worth it though, as I finally got to try out the new arena. big grin

    Anyways, I hope you've had as much, if not more, success than me... G

    See my thread I posted this morning (I get by with a little help....). Yes I finally managed it which was a relief but I was, like you, so knackered I didn't have the energy to explore much more and it was pretty late, so I'm looking forward to the next challenge (gulp) I think.

    I've no doubt you'll love the new areas beyond, give the arena a go before entering the Oolacile Township, but be prepared to die because as you know our fellow PvP'ers do not pull their punches! big grin

    I've often wondered about PvP. I've never tried it. The only time I've fought another player is when I've been invaded. I only go human if I want to summon or kindle a bonfire and it always ends in tears (mine). Incidentally, the first area of Oolacile Township is a hot bed of invasion activity. I found that out last night when I tried to kindle the fire. As usual I died but I didn't mind because I got my souls (such as they were) back and it was quite fun but it put me in a dither.

    PvP is a good way to get the adrenaline rush of a boss fight on demand. It can be a lot tougher to win though.
