    but anyone who had trouble could play offline and fight the underpowered default phantom, besides not like you could summon help for that fight anyway, so no reason to be online if your afraid of a challenge. also all you need to win that fight as the monk is an unupgraded makato with the adjudicators shield or regen ring. all of which can be obtained by beating one level and a short visit to the one after.

    sparkly-twinkly-lizard wrote:another alternative is to do something like the ur-dragon in dragon's dogma, have a creature that can be fought by 3 hosts and their phantoms simultaneously. with an absolutely ridiculous health bar of course. but if you want to fight the creature solo or with only their phantoms some balista things similar to those used on the dragon god become avaliable that you can use to bring it down by 2 thirds, the rest of which must be taken care of by the player ... so give the boss like 60,000 hp in ng and 120,000hp in ng+ for solo , but if the host has phantoms but not the 2 other hosts+phantoms the hp is 90,000.

    Oh wow, that sounds like an awesome idea. Unfortunately, the waiting time required to set up the match and the lag could be a major problem, but now I have something to dream about... silly

    I agree that the Old Monk was a great boss fight and I hope we get something similar for DkS2. I just hope that if they do decide to implement such a boss, that they keep the gear in the right range so that it's neither overpowered nor underpowered for that point in the game.

    I have never played Demon Souls, but after watching through some old monk boss fight videos on youtube, I couldn't agree more. Dark Souls 2 would be extra awesome if it had an optional boss like that.
