    But it is satisfying to use their own weapons against them. Kind of sounds like a new challenge run, eh?

    The DLC ended up being a mixed bag of success and struggles in my quest for bows-only.  Manus and Artorias...just couldn't do it alone, and had to summon help.  They were so aggressive that timing a shot was tough.  Probably can be done, but I just didn't have the patience or timing.  The guardian was easy.  Kalameet surprised me.  I got him solo on my first try.  For a ranged attack, he was one of the easier bosses.  Just a lot of dodging and follow up.  Whereas Manus and Artorias had such an agressive follow up after my dodge, Kalameet was a bit slower, plus I had all kinds of space to work with.

    I hadn't done anything with this playthrough for a bit, but took on the Kings last night.  Kind of anticlimactic, though, since it was more or less just a DPS race.  From that range the kings never really posed a physical threat.  My biggest issue was making sure I killed them fast enough to keep from getting swarmed.  Composite Bow +15, Large Arrows, Hawk Ring and PW made pretty quick work of them.
