    Sorry I don't have time to read all posts right now, but a very effective melee strategy:

    Shoot an arrow, Two hand melee weapon, rush and hit him in the head with your strongest (but fast) attack, he will breath fire, so go back to the stairs and wait for him to fly to the tower. Repeat.

    I could kill him with the drake sword+0 in around 10 hits

    And on a 'Serious' note (as in 'I'm attempting to be seriously serious in tone. Seriously.' rather than 'I'm exchanging non-serious banter with frequently non-serious serious_much'.) if Slake wants she's more than welcome to repost her thread seperatly and I won't merge it this time. I didn't intend to stifle a sensible discussion, I just wanted to keep clutter down and didn't think we really needed two seperate threads. Potato Pa-taaaaaa-to. silly

    once when i invaded in the parish (legit lvl 15) i came up under the dragons feet and died before my spawn animation was over....

    and the hellkite is also a nice tool to use on griefers as he can one shot them despite their armor.twisted

    Don't forget the gold resin to add lightning damage to your weapon when you fight him. You can cut off the tail in 3 hits easily.

    That's what I do. On NG+infinity I use the BKGA because it does 800+ damage per hit, so it doesn't take too long. Funny, though, yesterday I was just thinking it has become the most boring boss, to the point I actually kind of dread it, but the 90,000 souls are so tempting. Maybe I'll try something new (after spending my souls, of course).

    Or maybe I'll just try this!

    Totally just tried to rush it and got double tail slapped to death. I hate fighting this thing on new toons, quite need my dragonslayer bow and at least 40 STR/DEX ; ;

    I know this is an old topic so I'll be brief. I've offed the Hellkite at last without really trying, I was at the end of the bridge where you first meet Solaire and there was no sign of it, so I decided to cross to the Sunlight Altar on the other side. You've guessed it, I was halfway across when I heard it, I didn't see it but got flamed, so ran back, turned round and there it was perched on top of the arch. I thought 'oh well, one more go for luck', equipped my Dragonslayer Greatbow and brought it down onto the bridge. It started to stomp towards me and I shot it again, it turned round and started to walk back, shot it again and it turned round. It just kept doing this and I pumped arrows into it until it died. It took about 20 to kill it.
