    "Now that's just embarrasing..."

    Post by Seignar on Sun Jan 06, 2013 1:29 am

    I don't know about any of you, but the Crestfallen Warrior has been the vain of my character's existence early game. That man has some of the most precise and unpredictable parries ever! Like seriously, he either has his shield up which makes him a master parry or he is swinging that sword that deals remarkable damage and some really fatal riposte damage (1 shots me all the time). Sometimes he lets me wail on the shield for a while just before he randomly parries. No, he never partial parries, he just sticks the parry like a boss and kills me.

    Just a small discussion. IMO, the Crestfallen Warrior has some of the most evil A.I in this game, surpassing Balder knights and Vinland's parry skills; at least they partial parry and give me a chance to back off.

    What do you think about him? I'm serious, the guy really does embarrass me every single time even if I win.

    After all my play through I never even knew he could parry you.... Never had an issue with him.

    Since I always wait for him to attack (in order to parry him) me first I have no problems with him. silly

    He used to spawn kill me all the time when I first started playing but now, no. I never have any trouble with him. I normally just use an unupgraded dagger to backstab him once and then dark hand him for humanity. Then after that I just finish him off with my longsword.

    I recently got his dialogue of the stench and leaving to do something about it, so I decided to look up where he'd be(if he's even anywhere) and found out he went to New Londo and got himself hollowed. Since I defeated him on a low level crit based character at Firelink I thought he'd be a pushover but that guy seriously stepped up his game and almost one hit riposted me. Suffice it to say that I decided to give him a taste of his own medicine with my Furysword. Dude doesn't mess.

    Once I got his health really low with a riposte. I tried to finish him off with a regular R2 just as he was standing up. But he just parried it and killed me with the riposte.
    The best part was that I was cosplaying as him. But he definitely showed who was the real one.

    Ouch. Just goes to show you some enemies don't mess.

    Speaking of nasty parries, first time I fought rapier Balders I didn't know what it meant when they held their rapier parallel to the ground so I just decided to bash him with R1 thinking it was the perfect opportunity with his shield down. I learned my lesson and will never fall for that again. Look Skyward

    If all else fails, npc's can't parry pyromancy, sorcery, or miracles silly.

    It's kind of ironic that he's really good at the game despite being so down and out. I mean, I find him to be a tougher battle than legendary knights like Leeroy and Havel.

    I think that, other than the difference in skill, he's also lost any will to go do anything useful.

    On my 1st play I made the error of up setting him an he rightly showed me the door....
    I tend to leave him alone nowadays as he is in his own world of dispair.Even when he goes hollow I just run away from him.....
    By the way is this NPC from DeS or based around a NPC from DeS.I ask as Im sure I read somewhere that he was?........

    I don't think he's the same guy(like Patches is) but I do think he's based off the guy from DeS, they have the same depressed attitude except in DeS he's a pushover and at a certain point just up and dies.

    My first play through I decided to try and kill him the second I got to firelink. He killed me, and then kept killing me every time I respawned at the fire. He killed me a lot, but I finally killed him, without backstabs or parries because I didn't even know they were a thing.

    Based off this guy. Crestfallen Warrior, Lautrec and Patches are the most noticeable throwbacks to Demon Souls, although they aren't the only ones.
