    Finally nailed it!

    Post by Griever on Mon Mar 05, 2012 6:55 pm

    After hours of trying to do O&S in NG+ by killing Super Ornstein I have managed to do it solo.

    At first I didn't think I would be able to do it. So i even went as far as going back to the depths to farm some humanity. After hours of numerous attempts with both Solaire and some player co op I ran out of humanity. I really couldn't be bothered to go back to the depths so I attempted it solo.

    And eventually..... I nailed it!

    I have to say I have found it the hardest boss so far. On my first playthrough I took the easy option and killed super Smough.

    Luckily for me, the two dudes I summoned in my first play through smoked Smough first. So I don't have to face super Ornstein this time.

    Congrats! It's such an awesome feeling to beat Super O, let alone solo big grin the fact you have done this in NG+ puts me to shame! I must fight him again in NG+++ now.

    I think you guys are making O&S out to be harder than they are. They're really just 2 push-overs if you're not afraid of them! winking

    But good job! It's with practice and multiple playthroughs that they become easier.

    Grats bro! I can understand 100% how you feel, and you have every right to brag about it. This is the fight of fights on dark souls, and you can not glitch your way out of it. I soloed super ornstein past saturday on NG++ using pyro and the flip ring on the 4th attempt and i can honestly say i havent felt so high after 500 hours in the game.

    this is true, like all real bosses anyway. Killing the boss as a phantom also helps alot to learn its moves and tricks without risking souls or humanity.

    Now to give four kings a go. On my first playthrough I tanked most of the bosses but on NG+ I've been using Lautrecs armour mainly with a +14 MSGS. I must admit though on the O&S fight I did use the DWGR.

    Congrats, OP. Super Ornstein is an absolute B1tchbarrel of nasty, solo. The other day I decided to go the Super O route with a +10 Balder Side Sword that only dealt around 125-130 damage per hit and I barely beat him. This is NG+infinity. I think it took me like 16 estus or something ridiculous like that. I think I'm going to do Super Ornstein exclusively from now on, because considering the amount of hours I've played DkS, that's pretty pathetic.
