    Does Artorias have a weakness?

    Post by bjmacman on Tue Jun 25, 2013 2:58 pm

    I'm heading to Artorias for my boss fight with him and I've read that he's not fond of lightning..... is this true? What are his weaknesses? I'm a Faith build so will WOG or Force have any impact on him.


    I'll be looking for some jolly co-op as he's a bad dude and I'm mostly rubbish !  laughing

    Any advice is most appreciated.

    He has no weakness, but he's least resistant to pure physical damage.

    You can't stun him with WoG, Force, or Emit Force. You have to use a weapon, Black Flame, or a Sorcery.

    Well his emotions are weak...


    But seriously, he is resistant to magic, lightning and fire. He has no known weaknesses i think.
    I suggest you to dodge every move he does instead of blocking, also when he's charging to buff himself, break his poise with WoG

    You get Black Flame after Artorias. D:

    Use a Greatsword or a Hammer. Whenever he rolls back twice, switch to it and see if he starts doing some sort of charge attack. BREAK HIM OUT OF THIS. If you let him get that charge off, the fight is over. Other than that, it's just a fight of attrition.

    Instead of putting yourself into the danger of letting him finish the charge attack, just lock on to him and shoot him with a bow, one of the arrows will always hit his head.

    I've never failed on hitting him in the head.

    I got him 1st time round with the help of 2 other Sunbros. And I am sure he didn't like my lightening spear, it caused a lot of damage and I finished him off with WOG.

    cheers
