    Wheel skeleton strategy

    Post by ace5762 on Fri May 17, 2013 10:11 pm

    Possibly been discovered before, but I'd like to share a strategy for dispatching wheel skeletons I came across today.
    It requires possessing and being able to use the karmic justice miracle and a high stability shield that lets through a bit of physical damage (Eagle shield is probably the best for this when upgraded).
    I think you already know where this is going- you cast karmic justice, aggro skeletons one or two at a time and just let them run up against your shield, they'll trigger karmic justice and get blasted to death before they break your stamina.
    If you're feeling confident and you've upgraded your shield, you can try and aggro more skeletons at once. As long as you keep them all facing you and you block their initial roll, they should all get blown away. (Remember to keep trying to move forward to keep them pressed up against your shield, if they roll past you, you risk an attack from behind).

    This would be a great idea if not for the limited castings on KJ.
    Still running past them on normal runs, but I'll definitely remember this on my next Faith playthrough.

    Good strat, nowadays I tend to drop down to skip most of the area and summon Leroy Jenkins to kill em. I always let him die before the boss, strictly one-on-one for me... not that Pincushion wasn't easy enough.

    On my first build I used all of Tarkus' equipment because he's the coolest thing this planet has ever spawned.

    It's as simple as equipping a greatshield, aggroing one of them, and then smacking them once they're done tickling your shield.

    That works until you get to ng+. Then the $#!7 gets real. I just use a estoc+15 with darkmoon blade, and attack them from behind my shield just as they're starting to attack.
    If you want full on over-kill, you can use the chaos pyros. The lava slays them.
