    hydra is one of the easiest boss once you know those things :

    - get as close as you can... feet in the water. but watch out not to drop into deep water (avoid the dark part of the water).

    - when close enough, hydra won't shoot magic.. it will throw its heads on you.. simply block with your shield (use a heavy shield with great balance.. like Havel's ).

    - once the heads are in the sand, swing your weapon at them TWICE ! no more ! always let go the shield between attacks to regen your stamina (green bar)..

    - ALWAYS watch your green bar.. better miss one hit-opportunity, than trying too hard at hitting those heads and having not enough stamina to block next attack.

    - in the very end, when almost all heads are gone.. you may finish it with a bow.

    you think i wasn't scared when i first fought it my first time?

    but when i decide to man up and fight it was an easy fight

    just make sure you're as close as you can to it

    and every time you hear a roar move backwards with your shield raised thats when its going to attack

    after its attack its head will be stuck on the ground and you can hit it a few times


    rinse and repeat til it dies

    hawk ring, long bow, feather arrows time your shots to hit particular heads until they are removed, do this from cover... theres a jumble of roots to your left as you enter the area takes some finding but there is a safe spot that you can snipe from... this requires patience and a good bow, have'nt tried it with a dragon slayer bow, might work better

    thats probably pre-1.05 patch. i think FROM patch that bug.

    imo the hydra in ashlake was much easier to defeat and less scarier since the sky is brighter not like the one in darkroot basin were it was dark. big grin

    lol reminded me of the first times I fought the hydra (Darkroot one)...

    - Spits his magic at me--insta-kill.

    - I try to block his spit; goes through the shield--insta-kill.

    - I run at it to get within melee range... fall in the deep water!

    "How the FUUUUU am I supposed to kill this thing?? I can't even get close to it!"

    Then I realized you can wait on the edge of the depth, and he'll come to you. Then the fight was cake!

    When I faced black hydra i didn't know much about the game. I saw in the location order of the wiki that you were supposed to go there after blighttown so there I went... with mediocre gear. Fighting this thing without a shield with good stability and dealing 60 dmg per hit is just ugly. It doesn't help that instead of waiting for the head slam in one spot I was running around "to avoid some of the heads" ( I thought the heads would all slam me down at once if i didn't move. Not true).

    Hahaha, yeah! I preferred to discover everything myself before reading up about it in the wiki, but once I'd done all that I definitely thought the Hydra was optimistically early in their walkthrough. If you have all the right gear, you can tackle him very early, but you'd need to read a lot of threads for that. Otherwise, there's no reason not to do him later.

    you know what would made the hydra easier than it already is?

    a spell that allowed you to walk on water

    i can just see people running around the sea on ash lake with that spell if it existed

    I don't know why but reading this cracked me up so hard lmao. I wasn't laughing at him or dissing him in any way. I found it funny cause of how innocent the comment seemed to me. gave me flashbacks from my early stages of the game.

    weapon special; hydra crossbow, has D scaling for int, bolts when fired look like the water shot (one handed) two handed you propel yourself into the air with one shot then do the hydra's flying attack costing 10 bolts... sounds cool to me any way...

    Patched? Like the Bridge Wyvern... Used to glitch die on me for no reason during all my first playthroughs, then one day just stopped dying. That damn wanna-be dragon is my most hated enemy in the game.

    ... Put on the iron Ring. Grab your weapon, and charge. Run back when it does the neck attack, and smash the *** out of each head. When it shoots water, get closer to it. Be a man. Get it together, and beat one of the easiest Mini-Bosses, second to the Boars. It ain't that hard. The one in darkroot was more of a challenge that the black Hydra, because one of the heads is almost impossible to reach without a bow or such, due to its head keep heading always in the deep end.

    The one on the far left?! Haha! If you keep strafing left around the deep end's edge, the hydra will follow, and eventually reach a place where it's safe to run to its head and not fall in the depth.
