    Amazing 3 - way NPC fight at the Northern Asylum

    Post by MiketheMushroomMan on Mon Jun 24, 2013 10:07 am

    I had a completely new Dark Souls experience yesterday on my 8th or so playthrough. Upon my return to the Northern Undead Asylum i decided to run past (rather than fight) the Black Knight patrolling the tutorial area. He gave chase to me in earnest. In my efforts to escape i ran through a number of areas and inadvertently picked up another 2 enemies. Oscar the Hollowed and aggrowed NPC and another random Hollow. So i now had 3 enemies on my tail. I decided my best chance of survival was running into the open and trying to sweep attack all 3 with a 2 handed R2 longsword. So i ran into the open area with the first bonfire and began circling backwards in a defensive fashion trying to find an opportunity to strike all 3 in a melee. Amazingly, in their attempts to strike me, they all ended up hitting each other, and taking health of each other. The hollow was first to fall, followed by Oscar, but not before both of them had reduced the Black Knights health by around 50%. I was then left with the relatively easy job of soloing the Black Knight.
    In all my time playing Dark Souls, i have never known regular enemies and Aggrowed NPCs to damage each others health in this way. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

    I remember a speed run where the blacksmith in the parish was led to the titanite demon and he was killed by the demon. Cool story, something else for me to try, Aggro NPC battle royal. happy

    You mean the demon was not vaporized by Andre's fists?

    I didn't have Oscar fight with a Black Knight, but one time I had a super epic fight with Oscar alone. I arrived at the Asylum, killed the Stray Demon, took Priscilla's Doll and got up to the open area with the bonfire. The door to the right was open (from which you can go up the stairs to where Oscar is) , so I headed there, and to my surprise Oscar was just around the corner, and wasn't in the spot you talk to him at the beginning.

    So he started attacking me, and I backed away to the hall in which you fight the Asylum Demon, kicked him down the hole you fall to get to the Stray Demon (while screaming "THIS, IS, SPARTAAAAAAAAAAAAA!" of course) , plunged him from above, and parry riposted him as the finale.
