    Hidden Body vs. Capra Demon.

    Post by CrackSouls on Thu May 30, 2013 1:06 am

    It works so well... the dogs just sit there as if you're not there. You can run up to them and wipe them out while the Capra Demon swings at you after you've sprinted past him. Why didn't I think of this before? Seriously, I've put thousands of hours into this game and I never thought of that!?

    Your not alone, I mean I didn't have hidden body when I would face him but I'll have to try this out sometime.

    I'll have to try this out when I can.

    Maybe you didn't think of it because you were too busy being a man and fighting them all?

    Hidden body is for sissies, not champs. If there was a spell that did the opposite that would draw all enemies in an entire level toward you, all at once, that's what I'd do. Biggest armour and weapon equipped as well, obviously. Dual Greatswords.

    Good idea. Never thought of it myself, I suppose I thought it wouldn't work too well because the room is so small and you might still be within aggro range, even with Hidden Body's stealth protection.

    Ring of Fog works, too. Just not as well. If you stay by the door, you can take out Capra first, then take out the dogs after you get the key.

    Hidden body is also hilarity vs anor londo archers. You can literally just walk up to lock-on range and spam them dead with 2 soul arrows before they can react.

    If you're not making a MP build it is well worth the 14 int to pick up oolacile ivory catalyst, great soul arrow, and hidden body. Heck, a lot of the 14 int stuff is pretty useful or amusing in MP too.

    You'd be suprised the amount of things Hidden Body is good for. "Hidden Body" and "ambushed" cannot fit into a sentence together, unless the word "not" is in between. Although, "Hidden Body" and "ambush" fit rather nicely together!

    Funny you say that because this character is for PVP. His max int will be 16 though.

    It seems so obvious now that you have suggested it, you would not believe how many tries it took me to beat the Capra Demon on my first playthrough. +1 to you sir.

    Isn't it way easier to beat capra and his not-so-lava dogs instead of the hydra and ****-

    I was thinking the same thing Snake. There's no way on my first playthrough I would have downed the hydra and grabbed hidden body just for capra.

    Granted, Hidden Body may not be available for the first play-through, but it should available be for the second play-though.

    It would be difficult to get the Fog Ring before Capra, but you don't need the master key.

    Really? I find that Hydra really easy. All you need is a 100% physical block shield and patience. All the crystal golems can be lured into the Hydras water ranged attack, and the last golden Hydra moves so slow I just whittle his health down.

    That area is one of the first places I go to in a playthrough so I can get Oolicile Catalyst, Oolicile spells, Havel's Ring, leather armour with longbow, and/or the Bandit armour set, ect.

    Hidden body is excellent for a lot of places, such as the Crystal Caves. You can just run past the clams to fight Seath. Or for dealing with areas with large amounts of hollows, it's wondrous in so many situations really. A personal favorite of mine is the Darkroot Forest both invading, and going through it for Sif.

    Hydra is a joke if you can just get it to kill the golems for you. You then run in from the cliff along the left (no water hitting you), stand there, and block. Hack a few heads off with whatever melee you're packing, then pull out any bow or xbow + 5 and just spam a bunch of arrows into it. Not expensive or difficult to execute at all.

    Same for the gold golem, it's just not that threatening even though it can take forever if you have bad damage.

    There's also the really patient method with Hydra, bow sniping. I did it once out of curiosity(and fear ). Hydra looks more intimidating at first but Capra boss can still screw me up if I'm not focused while Hydra has never been a problem anymore.

    I tend to forget about the Hidden Body spell, considering the Ring of Fog instead, so it's cool to hear some useful applications with a spell I never use.

    Note that the comment about the Hydra was for the first playthrough. Capra is a joke as well; you don't need hidden body.
