    That dragon can be a pain I'll give you that. If you are focusing on cutting the tail summon Solaire and Luatrac or however is name is spelled and focus on the tail, careful though he will swip at you. They won't last to long though so move quickly and pray. Once it's off and yours keep attacking from the sides and back until either it or your NPC helpers are dead, if the NPCs die then use the next section.

    If not keep a mild distance, enough where when it is 'standing' and if it slams down for the charge you won't get hit, and bait him to charge keeping to his sides when he does. Once he stops just 2hand your weapon and swing maybe 3-5 times or usually your stamina bar and start moving back he'll be tailswiping shortly. Just keep repeating this and it will probably take awhile, did it at SL33 and it had to have taken 10-20 minutes or something.

    wow, sucks to get stuck on this guy..

    Okay look stay away from him for most part, specifically outside lock on range, this will bait his charge attack (brings body down flat, then charges).

    When his body comes down before the charge run to the side of him and wait until after he stops charging, attack at the rear where tail joint is. After 1 set of swings run away and repeat.

    You can easily do this boss without taking damage once you get the hang of this tactic.

    I watched this youtube video and the strategy helped me beat the Gaping Dragon.

    The dragon has oodles of hitpoints and it's easy to get impatient and just want to whack away as much as inhumanly possible.

    Just chill, let the dragon do his thing, wait for your moment, run in and get a three solid 2handed hits on him. Then run away screaming (just not over the waterfall happy) and wait for him to get done vomitting, flying, rotating,etc. Then when he jams his chest/mouth into the ground and charges accross the room you chase him down and chop three more times.
    Gaping dragon is just a patience fight. Only tricky bit is that when you get your opening for a three chop attack, remember to stand between the base of his tail (if you aren't chopping it off) and his rear-most leg. And Solaire n Lautrec can also be useful to get chewed up by ol' Gapey while you murder his hiney parts.

    i don't know how you can get to SL70 there, how many hours you spent farming?

    but at that level i thihnk you're probably just trying to rush it too much and Gaping can be quite powerful but you just have to avoid him

    Have you killed the chaneller near him? if you havent then that'll be why you're having a really tough time.

    He's just as stupid on NG+ too, I went at it at like 240 thinking he would be a wuss... I can say he is not.

    Does he get significantly worse on NG+++ or? Whenever I did the Gaping Dragon he has been a pushover... In my games he follow a very predictable pattern...

    1. Big gape
    2. Slam his mouth to the ground and get stuck
    3. Charge straight forward
    4. Realign to where the player is and repeat.

    I usually just wait until he gets stuck in 2 and then run to his rear and start bashing, if you do the front or the sides youll get charge damage when he gets unstuck but other than that piece of cake.

    Gaping Dragon plays the same as far as I can tell on any play through, its pretty much just a matter of hitting him from behind, and if you let Solarie tank him its a push over.

    Nope, no mobs seems to get additional attack animations. Only his additional health will make him more annoying but otherwise he'll stay a pushover when you learn his moveset.

    yea i noticed its alot about move around when fighting in this game and run atround smack here then run and do another smack there..its not so much about standing still and sucking up damage

    Wow that's a lot of farming in the depths! Did you put any of those souls into upgrades by any chance? I know in most games you level up first and then worry about upgrading equipment. That's actually backwards for dark souls. Even if you know you're going to be replacing your equipment eventually, a +5 shield and weapon is always worthwhile and makes a big difference early in the game. If you picked up the halberd in the parish, that makes an excellent early game weapon at +5 and makes everything MUCH easier.

    Aye, I bet that's what the Sony people were trying to do. This game likes to make you think outside the box.

    Also I hear you on the depths farming. I usually do that myself on any new character and it's amazing how quickly the souls will stack up isn't it? Not even just on slimes the rats will build up fast too if you use a wide range area of effect spell like Wrath of the Gods.

    My reflexes are not as sharp any more and I often walk roll off edges

    This is one of the reasons I don't play first person shooters online anymore unless I a general on trolling the army I am too poo to be on the frontline big grin

    Stay in there mate you,ll get there and ng+ will be a breeze

    if you are farming for souls I recommend joining the Forest covenant or to be in human form in the forest (need to be comfortable cleaning out the NPCs first). The return of invested time vs. souls is a lot better in PvP than mob farming.

    I am lvl 72 on my toon and I can easily score 1mil + on a night of PvP but then again one needs to be comfortable with PvP and have decent gear so I guess it helps to have gone thru the game atleast once.
