    Pinwheel...You scare me....

    Post by Jester's Tears on Mon Apr 29, 2013 3:53 pm



    ''In an attempt to try to bring his wife and child back into life Pinwheel accidentally trapped them into his own body. His clones were attempts to split them into seperate beings.
    You can hear people whispering "I'm sorry, I'm so sorry." ''

    Pinwheel just gained a bit of respect for creeping me out...

    Pinwheel should've been stronger
    His story is great, but now his masks only represent ganking and trolling

    His soundtrack sure says a lot about him.
    But why, oh why, did they have to make him so damn easy?

    Lore-wise, I've always found Pinwheel interesting. Trying to imagine what hideously deformed figure lies behind that cloak of his.

    I love Pinwheel's sound track.
    By the way, Pinwheel is actually a decent boss with an unupgraded weapon, in fact he was intended to be an optional first boss. But since most people fight him after they get to AL, it's obvious that he's going to be absolute trash.
    Imagine going through the game to AL then fighting the Tauros Demon.
    Well there's Pinwheel.

    Well said dibs, +1

    but even with a base weapon he still isn't too hard, most new toons I roll start by running to him to get the rite of kindling. He is not the pushover he is if you fight him later, but still not to hard.

    That's debatable depending on what weapon you're using. It also depends on how Pinwheel's AI is feeling that day, he might just down right troll you and destroy you, seeing as it's pretty easy to get stunlocked and killed by the (8?) Pinwheels he spawns when he's under ~30% health.

    I think that just by the fact Leeroy will almost always kill him, even if you do nothing in the fight, Pinwheel is an easy boss


    But, you can make the fight more interesting by waiting for him to create a lot of clones, then attacking

    People keep saying he's easy with Leeroy.
    Yes, I know that, Leeroy can 3 shot him.
    The thing is, I don't fight with phantoms unless it's another player or Tarkus. I couldn't care less about Leeroy. I prefer the challenge.

    I know, I meant that by the fact that Leeroy can be summoned, Pinwheel will never be a hard boss, unless you want to

    NG+7 Pinwheel disagrees.

    The first time I fought him before being late in the game(I hadn't even killed Capra yet) I had to use Gold Pine Resin on him.

    He's too easy for the level people go fight him at, when I fought him at a low level he was an okay challenge.

    One of the comments on youtube:
    "Huh, maybe the reason he's so easy to kill is because he wants to die..."

    I wonder who he is saying "I'm so sorry." to. To the player, or to his wife and children, or to Nito?

    God damn Miyazaki, you're a genius, but I hope the new directors will actually tell us the story they write for the game.

    Jester's, this is off-topic but, I love that image of Lautrec and Anastacia on your signature. Is there a bigger version of the artwork I can use as wallpaper?

    Well I didn't manage to kill him with claw and crimson armour. I was very low level and the claw was unupgraded. Leeroy died twice on his way to pinwheel so I didn't bother.
    On the other hand when I came back with few more levels and +10 claw buffed by magic weapon, the fight lasted less than the cinematics.

    Well as everybody knows he was supposed to be an optional early boss,but FROM and their balancing problems made the catacombs harder than the boss itself, especially the beloved bonewheel skeletons (which only recently I discovered you can skip without aggroing if you use the ring of fog and jump from where Leeroy's summon sign is).I'm yet to kill pinwheel before getting the lordvessel,I've never even met Patches on his catacombs encounter.

    I died because of the fall in the first time because I had low health. Second time in it was easy, it wasn't until 50 minutes after that it sunk in that I had killed him.

    Maybe one of the most unnerving things about him is how easy he is. You have all these incredibly strong monsters in this game then we have this weak boss, wrapped in mystery from the lore perspective.

    what i think would have been cool would be that if you went in to the tomb of the giants while wearing your pinwheel mask pinwheel would revive(in a more badass form) and become the midboss of the tomb, since he is a necromancer self revival stuff makes sense and the masks are just so tempting to wear...

    What I'm disappointed about is that Pinwheel had the potential of being a great boss and a great character, however FROM ruined him and his masks don't represent his desire to have his family back, now they only represent ganking and trolling.

    Um, what does FROM stand for? I've seen it a few times and don't understand the acronym.


    Though Pinwheel is creepy, what are those other ones in the babie chamber? Are they some more random clones or phantom echoes?
