    Iron Golem, weird summons?

    Post by Rynoa on Tue Apr 03, 2012 3:55 pm

    I have a toon at lvl 60 and I'm right now at Sen's Fortress.
    I was going to summon my pal Iron Tarkus to help me with the titanite demons but on my way there I decided to put my summon sign just before the boss fog. I like helping people with bosses big grin

    Well I got summoned 2 times, and both times the same thing happened:
    the host summoned 2 phantoms, then proceeded through the fog door without killing the bomb-throwing golem on the roof. So we had to fight the boss while the other golem kept throwing bombs at us. First time I got lucky but the second time I just died at the second bomb, as my fire resistance is ridicuously low right now (even if I have the ring on) big grin The other phantom had just a tiny bit of HP left, too.

    So, I honestly don't understand what's happening, if it's some sort of a challenge then why summon 2 phantomis to help? Aren't challenges supposed to be done alone?
    If it's not, why not killing the golem, it's right on the same roof!

    I think I just happened to be in the middle of some weird event big grin

    Wait a minute, you can drag Tarkus around Sen's Fortress? Damn, I never think of trying that stuff. I'm doing that tonight.

    If I hear the golem upstairs I book it up there to take him out first, even if the host goes through the fog.

    I do the same if summoned for the gaping dragon and the channeler is still alive. I go back and take him out while they take on the dragon.

    can someone test whether a summoned phantom can snipe the iron golem from the fire bombers tower once the fight starts (hawk ring+ DS bow for quick stagger?) cause i've sniped the gaping dragon from outside the boss room to great effect and the situation is similar...

    I never figure that if they are wanting help

    Sen's is more of a 30-40 I'd say. Maybe more like 35-45. I've had the same thing happen to me a few times, but I always just kill the giant. I never even considered that they were doing a challenge, I just figured they forgot or didn't know about him

    I do this to take out the giant. The lock on makes my camera have a seizure. It is nice to get the giant something else to focus on.

    Thanks, just making sure my 50 is close enough to get summoned there.

    1. I was lvl 60 and got plenty of summons and invasions
    2. It's IMPOSSIBLE to forget/not know about him, as you stand in the room with the fog door, the room keeps shaking and you hear the rumble noises from the golem, who is just above the roof of the same room. And there's some stairs leading up directly to him.

    I really had the impression of being in the middle of some organized event

    I DID notice, hell the room kept shaking like crazy! I just didn't wanna kill him if the host didn't want him dead.
    Imagine you're participating in this event where you're supposed to summon two people and take down the Iron golem without killing the bomb-golem. Then one of your summons just do what he wants and go kill him... wtf?
    I imagined the other phantoms knew what was happening because they too went for the boss immediately.

    I can confirm that you CAN snipe the iron golem from the tower with the Giant in it, theres even a gap in the bars made for it. (A conveniently broken one between two others in the center..)
