    Knight Astorias' Flying Attack - he hits me always!

    Post by Micha369 on Sat Mar 23, 2013 2:24 pm

    Hello folks,

    you see my problem! I'm so frustratede!

    I read the instructions how to dodge and about the timing of doing this.
    It reads one should dodge pretty late in the last moment. I really do this. Anyway, Astorias always hits me! My load is 18,7 / 82. Poise is 40 (wolf ring).
    Don't know what I can do differently.
    I need a training or a tutorial or something!
    Vit 40
    End 42
    Str 27
    Dex 40



    Thanks for your help!

    When you see him jump up, unlock and sprint towards where he jumped up. That works 90% of the time with me, he'll just fly right over you.

    This is a nice hint. I'll try it!
    By the way, now I think my mistake is that I side-dodge too early so his trajectory bends a little during his flight.

    Thanks!

    had an absolute nightmare with him aswell man but yeah dodge at the last minute always and equiping the leo ring for the first time ever and only using thrust attacks made him seem easy and that was after about 30 attempts without that setup he had me completely demoralized i made a thread about it and everything lol

    Yeah that attack got me a lot too. Gotta dodge later than you'd think, which is annoying. Gets easy when you get the hang of it, and you'll be glad for the opening~

    The distance of his jump is always the same, so it's rather easy to predict where he will land (with a little practice), and then you can move towards, or away from him and have him land several meters away from you without even rolling

    You can also dodge to the side, but as you said, you have to do it at the last moment, and if you dodge to the wrong side, he will hit you with his abyss mucus blob

    Personally i find it much easier when you can predict where he will land and dodge without rolling

    Weird, this is the 1 attack that never managed to hit me, it's always just a free hit for me (unless he lands so far away that I have to sprint for half an hour to reach him...)

    I pretty much always circle around bosses while walking backwards, and usually to the right. When Artorias does that massive leap thing, I just dodge in the same direction as I'm moving, while he's at the highest point of the jump. He'll miss by miles.

    Or did you mean the other, smaller jump, where he somersaults and then hits you with his blade? That 1 is significantly more annoying to me, but I can usually dodge it if I start he dodge the moment he's done somersaulting. If I'm lucky, he'll do it again, but the second one will then have crappy tracking, so he totally attacks the wrong direction as long as I keep circling. Free hit for me.

    Thanks for your comments, however I still have to work on this fuc... Knight!

    At first I liked this fight because I managed the first fights to half of his HP.
    But then it became really frustrating because something always goes wrong. I had him already almost a few times but then I messed it as usual. I have tried it now for appr. 40 times!
    The jumping attacks very often hit me whether high or the flater one.
    I wasn't even aware of that there is always a right and a wrong side to dodge!

    I have to go back to the arena and continue working on that knight!

    Thanks!

    I don't think that this is true, I'm afraid. I just was not very far away from him and he made his high jump and I was quickly jumping towards the point he started his jump. So the distance between him and me became pretty short. Anyway, he hit me 100%!

    EDIT:

    By the way, is it possible to save this game at this point (Boss not beaten jet) to copy this savegame file in the right dir to fight that battle later again just for fun?

    Unfortunately I do not have this ring since I beat Ornstein at first and Ornstein only drops this ring when he is the last victim.

    Yeah it's possible to make a backup of your save, just quit game at the boss fog and copypasta the file in another folder

    Try not to get them messed up though if you do that often, maybe rename them temporarily, and then put the old save name back for playing , and most importantly, and obviously, never *** with the extension name(what's after the dot)

    Alternatively, get the highest stability shield you can (eagle shield in your case), upgrade it as far as possible and he's cake. You don't even have to turtle, just block until you see a good opportunity to whack him. You can do the same for manus.

    I had to give you a +1 for two reasons. One, I agree with your statement. Two... I was listening to the William Tell Overture when I noticed your avatar keeping up with the beat.

    Don't side dodge. When you see him starting the move, run/roll towards him.
