    How to kill King Doran... I'd like the ring...

    Post by Micha369 on Sun Jun 30, 2013 3:55 pm

    Hello folks,

    I still have my sl 40 char. And I think it is not possible to kill this King with that char. If Doran is at 50% of HP at least here I die!

    I think I have to abstain from this ring!

    I thought the ring would help in the fight against the Old False King Allant.
    But the fight against Doran is much harder!surprised 

    Do you have any suggestions with this?

    Thanks!

    Best wishes

    Remember that corridor where you go down to get to the Cling Ring? If you can, push Doran to this corridor. First, lead him across the bridge, then through that room. Once he's through the room across the bridge, start pushing him towards the room with the Cling Ring. Once you pass the first catapult, he'll stop attacking, so you can just take your time. Once you finally get there, just push him off the edge, run down to the bottom and grab the ring.



    Just do this except push him.

    Sorry but I always die! I have backstabed him until 50% health and this is already hard work. But then he finished me (2 times)! I don't feel like repeating it even more!

    Also this Allant! I always die! I do have soloed him with other chars in higher levels! But with sl 40 it needs a lot of luck, I have the feeling.

    Maybe I try this cheaty method! But does this method also works if I already have made him to an enemy? I'll try! Thanks!

    Old King Doran is a secret boss in Demon's Souls and as such he is very difficult to defeat. However, he is a player type enemy, which means you can fight him the same as any player.

    There are MANY ways to kill him.

    Thanks to him being the player type enemy, you can backstabd him and parry all of his attacks. If you have the parry timing right, you can defeat him like this. Even so, Old King has huge HP pool of 2400 HP (which is around 2000 on PWWT), so it will take some time to defeat him, unles you're using PvP gear. To make things worse, his Eternal Warrior's Ring replenishes his Stamina faster than normal, so you can't really go and duke it out with him as the ring will give him some good melee advantage. If possible, try to fight one of the hostile NPCs, that you can meet usually in Black Phantom form, because they can suplement you with at least some PvP experience. It's best to fight other players of course, but I understand that it is difficult to find players to PvP with, especially on this SL. Most PvPers are on SL 120-125 in world 4-1 you see.

    There are many ways to cheese the fight on any SL, such as throwing him from great heights by using the Stormruler, poisoning him with Poison/Death Cloud and waiting for him to die, ranged attack spam and more.

    EDIT:
    The link doesn't want to work, so i have to write it manually for the time being.
    Enter the following url into your browser:

    And delete the extra space.

    You can forget to get the old king out to the bridge with the catapults!
    This will work in the first place, when he is still friendly and only want to check your capabilities for the sword! But my King already is hostile and he hits much harder and won't go out of that room to the catapults!

    He will go to the stairway right beside the catapult. Bait an attack, roll behind him, backstab him, and start pushing him before he can do anything. He'll pass the first catapult easily and from there on you can just simply push him to his imminent death.

    don't teach him sh1t - fight him like a man, peach angel

    backstabs and parry&riposte works.
    slap him around with a DBS works.
    slap him around with a meatcleaver also works, but takes longer.
    be very fast and hit&run works.....

    don't destroy yourself the best fight against a NPC in the souls games - even Arty won't stand him.
    Haven't you learned enough on saturady in the EU FC?
    Do the next weekend, and you get better in pvp.

    Anyone try poison/plague? I don't know, have not checked the wiki. But if you go get a mercury scimitar or the mercury rapier you could try and poison him. Again, not a quick way to win but a wins a win if it works. Right? That's if he is not immune....which I have no idea. Been to long.
