    Word of warning, in the first set on the bridge just after the 2 serpent men the first one in the pair swings slightly before the second one. Be REALLY careful when you're on your way out.

    Keep at it. Do it enough and you'll memorize exactly where to stand. until you get there, rotate the camera and look where to stand. It'll be slow, but you'll learn it quick.

    Take your time in Sens, if you can, draw and eliminate serpents outside of the traps, you can knock some down too. The blades is all timing, watch them for a while to get a grasp on their patterns, then move appropriately, some you can move between, others you have to sprint through.

    Welcome to the forums!

    Which ones are you stuck on? Because with a few you can get between the blades so you can take them one at a time.

    One of the hardest for me was the last set, with the Lightning Flameberge Serpent. What I do is just run to the first blade and there is a little divot in the floor between the blades. Stop there. Run past the next one. If you do it efficiently, the Serpent shouldn't hit you. It takes him time to hiss, aim, and fire.

    just be careful about sprinting if you do that. Can be hard to control. But its how I do it with my melee builds. If you have ranged though you kil that serpent mage.

    True about sprinting. That is a narrow ledge. But, my FPS skills are terrible, so sniping the serpent gets me dead fast.

    Welcome and watch where you step. Literally look. You see those spots with chunks taken out of the walkway? That's where you don't want to stand.

    I love Sen's! I invade in there all the time, must've gone past every guillotine a thousand times. I know all their timing, but they still get me once in a while, when I get cocky. But just take it slow, and you shouldn't have any problems.

    You need to learn to recognize how much room you take up, so that you can tell which blades you can stand between and when you have to pass multiple blades at a time. Once you can tell where you can pause, I recommend pointing the camera top-down at much as possible, to make it easier to tell where you're standing in relation to where the guillotine will swing.

    Also, you can run against the flat of the blades. So if you run at them a bit early, it can buy you an extra fraction of a second to place yourself between the next ones.

    I love Sens Fortress, and using the traps against the Sneoples (Snake People).

    The first two get hit by the arrow trap then I kill them.

    The Lightning throwing Sneople get's shot off the ledge with arrows.

    The Sneople on the first swinging axes walkway gets lured into them.

    The regular Sneople and the Lightning Sneople near Seigmeyer both get hit by falling boulders.

    The one right past them gets destroyed by the arrow trap..

    I don't really bother trying to trick the others.

    Hello & welcome. Don't give up on Sens. It took me a while to get through it first time and I'm currently trying again on a new character. Granted, it's not easy even when you do know your way around. It helps if you take out the Serpent Mage on the second swinging blade walkway and the serpent guard at the end of the first one with arrows before you start. The guard gets knocked off the walkway by the blades 9 times out of 10.

    Thanks for the firebomb tip Berkut. That Mage on the last walkway has given me a lot of grief. You can shoot it but it has a habit of retreating behind the wall after it's been hit a few times. I'm going to try your method next time.
