    some help for Artorias NG+ melee?

    Post by Micha369 on Thu Apr 04, 2013 6:07 pm

    Hello folks,

    I don't manage this Artorias in NG+

    I have such a high SL, but I simply cannot beat him!
    My SL ist 157! Please do not laugh at me!

    Can anybody help me with this? Is it possible at all to summon help for this fight?

    Windows-PC Version DS Prepaired To Die.

    If I stay far away from him hi does his big jumping attack and that hits me very often! I simply cannot dodge this!

    Thanks!


    Best Wishes

    If you have the fat roll, you're doing it wrong.

    Watch his move set, and dodge the big jump to the left. It's tricky to dodge, roll when he starts to descend.

    about 10/10 times a roll works against this guy. I know this from fighting him without a shield.

    And if you have a poise wrecking weapon, attack him when he does the Dark Charge thingy, it staggers him and he doesn't get a damage boost.

    Any greatsword or ultra greatsword (claymore, zwei, etc) or 2-hand something fast like a falchion and rip into him when he tries to charge. Good luck!

    I always dodge the big jump by running/rolling towards him. You don't even have to think about timing if you go near him. It always works. His triple jump attack is best dodged by rolling left though.

    I always roll right, and it works too

    If i'm not mistaken, the high jump attack has fixed distance, and if you're too close or too far, it will always miss, if you happen to be at the right place for him to hit you, you must dodge away from him right before it lands.
    The goo blob that appears can do damage as well

    Ah, his triple jump. I mind the time when I had a fully upgrade fire halbred and for every time he struck the ground, I was able to hit him and move counter-clockwise to hit him again on his next strike.

    I love co-op'ing with that character.

    Which reminds me (a little bit off-topic). In the Royal Wood those pitchfork guys used to drop a four-pronged pitchfork. It seems I have never received one since the last patch. I always get some type of moss instead.
