    That was also part of the joke. Since he was my ex-boss, I know somewhat about him. So that's why I'm out to kill Artorias and why I said that I know how to defeat him.

    Actually I would rage if Ciaran came around and started back stabbing you with Hornet's ring.

    ooh, that would huuuurt. But what if she is the Biorr to you penetrator? fighting side by side with one of the 4 knights would be awesome.

    Fightning with a knight against a knight? geesh, intense.

    Lol at Penetrator situation, he was my favorite boss because of how badass he is, he would've killed Biorr if I hadn't interfered.

    yeah, I wanted that armor and was so sad I couldn't get it. Though I doubt I'd have the weight required to wear it. Still an amazing duel fight if you were a swordsman-type. Blue Blood Sword FTW!!!

    Maybe gough will be hanging back sniping while you fight Artorias to help out in some way?

    ^ That would be amazing, like if Gough were to stagger him every now and then with the DSGB, allowing you to get some hits in.

    I just hope it's a hard strategic boss fight, which doesn't have a simple trick to it. Not like stray and firesage demon's obvious move set, but not like Ornestein and Smough overkill simply because they were fighting together. More like a Gwyn type boss. Well a Gwyn type boss that can't be parried.

    Yes, that's what I meant.

    I remember when I first fought Gwyn. I was so impressed, it was the first boss that felt really really hard. As if no matter what edge I got, and how I learned his movements there wouldn't be any easy way to cheese him.

    Then I looked online, and saw you could parry him.

    I hope Artorias is just a straight up sword fight. And I also hope he was some dialogue.

    He should start the fight by casting something that drains ALL your spell casts

    He would then proceed to make all your godly weapon upgrades do tiny bits of damage. In fact, he just hands you a sword and you duel like men!

    He might have fallen to the dark, but he still clings to that last bit of honor, eh?

    The first step would be to use something other than a greatsword I'd think. Maybe one-up him with an Ultra Greatsword?

    Lol! Good thinking. People could say that the Great Blade of the Sun is unmatched with a ultra Greatsword appropriately named "Greatsword", but others would dare dispute this fact. Mainly bS/LSers and people higher than SL. 70ish or Cheaters.

    Off Topic- isn't Artorias' sword an ultra in disguise?

    Like maybe you can only talk to him if you're a Darkwraith or have the covenant of Artorias ring on. Then we will be best friends with Artorias and proceed to bring Lordran and the rest of the world into Darkness. Praise the Dark?

    It would be nice if Artorias is everything Gwyn was suppose to be. I think I remember in an interview with the developer (think I heard EpicNameBro talk about it in the Art Book ( I hope gets brought to the states too)) Anyway I believe the developer wanted Gwyn to challenge all your wits, everything you've learned in the game and how you've upgraded your toon would come into play. Atleast this would be my hope with how much of a beast we've read Artorias was.

    Gwyn was meant to be a boss that couldchallnge any playstyle. Unfortunately to challenge the "parry and riposte" playstyle he became easy.

    @ jsd201 sorry I meant beast. It's 6:30am here and I've been up all night at work. I would have used more colorful language to discribe him but I didn't know what I could and couldn't write on the forum. And also yes the parry and riposte is good and all but I personally had a much more difficult time with the False King from Demon Souls.

    I bet we can't parry him. . . but he can be back stabbed.

    more like you can bust his sword or something thus making the fight easier or altering his moveset after he reaches 50% hp. start off (ridiculously) strong then ease up?
