    Please help against Manus!

    Post by Micha369 on Thu Mar 28, 2013 8:57 pm

    I have seen a SL1 fight against Manus. This guy has no shield! Only a club. I'm at SL 135, have much more of vitality and stamina, dex and strength and use the crest shield but when Manus reaches out with his hand I have only little stamina left. The SL1guy in the video always gets subtrackted pretty little stamina. He has no shild, as I said. How can this work? How can this be realistic? I don't know!

    I have beaten Manus to his half HP but I always die! He hasn't even started casting spells!

    Thanks for suggestions!

    Best regards,

    Micha

    Well obviously the reason he only loses a little bit of stamina is because he's dodging, not blocking. Learn to dodge all of Manus' moves I'd say, or summon some help. Ninja-flipping with the DWGR helps.

    DWGR=Dark Wood Grain Ring. If you are fast rolling, it improves your dodge by making it cross more distance while having more invincibility frames. The animation also changes, making it look like you're a ninja flipping all over the place.

    Make sure you're fast rolling, while also making yourself as bulky as possible. Use the RoFaP or Havel's (or both) to accomplish this. Use an upgraded, fast striking weapon such as a katana or anything you like using. Also, kindle the first bonfire all the way up to 20 Estus Flasks.

    This is how I beat Manus on my very first try, without the Silver Pendant and Sif.

    The Dark Wood Grain ring is awkward to get mind. You have to join the forest covenant then murder Shiva's ninja bodyguard. Best to join it, speak to Shiva, then go to Blightown and find him there (bodyguard is behind him). Means you're not fighting off the whole Forest Mob.

    Man, I would recommend you to get Shield of Cleansing (old Arthorias' shield) from saving Sif. It requires just 31 STR and is more than enough to tank Manus like a man. Beware - it has 80% block, neaning that you will eventually need to use Estus a lot.

    ^^ That's a sound tip. My way of beating Manus has always been to use fast roll and stay as close to him as possible, you can dodge all of his attacks including his dark magic if you keep close (imagine the front of Manus is 12 o'clock, you always want to be either at the 4 or 8 o'clock position on his flanks)

    If you are having trouble with weapons try using pyro, use with power within and it does a lot of damage quickly.
