    How to counter turtles

    Post by Carphil on Fri Feb 24, 2012 5:25 pm

    Tips? I tried to bleed through the shield but they kill me before bleed works, same for trying to erase their stamina, since they put like 80 END and use a elemental rapier/spear. I'm not a sorcerer, not pyromancer and I definitaly never use WoG. Arrows actually worked but they rush and BS me when I try to snipe them T__T

    Greatshield and probably a magic spear, with long reach say winged. Does that sound good?

    Hmm, tough since you don't use pyromancy. I rarely deal with turtles (but then again I rarely play anymore) but I would think that a narrow path with magic would really help.

    Poison them. When they try to eat moss, charge them.

    Yea I actually will add pyromancy to this build but only later because right now I don't have souls and my priority is to level up. Fireballs and firestorms I think it would be effective against them

    Test of wills. Sit out of range and wait until they come to you and attack. Counter attack as applicable. If they won't come to you chip with ranged. I haven't tried this myself but I fought someone once who used poison throwing knives effectively.

    Shotel.

    The R2 goes right around the shield and cannot be parried.
