    Favourite Enemy?

    Post by Azran on Wed May 09, 2012 12:41 am

    We've all got them: be it the concept, the moveset, the animations; there is always a particular foe we like to fight!

    For me, its definitely the Black Knight. I always liked martial-focused, human-sized foes in fantasy action games.
    What about you?

    That's a hard question to answer. I think the one that sticks out the most for me is the stone sentinels in the Darkroot Garden. I remember the first time I saw one standing up prepping to attack me. I thought: "this game..so awesome."

    Capra Demons, they're easy to fight but they force you to stay focused and on your toes.

    Painting Guardians. I just love everything about them. Their weapons, their armor, everything!

    To fight? The mushroom parents, never let your guard down around them.

    To chase around like a 5 year old? Crystal lizards, they remind me of all the lizards I used to catch big grin

    Hey, don't forget the Solaire nightlight (credit goes to Tolvo for that idea).

    Mine is all of them, when you have just started playing and don't know any of the movesets you are about to see, even more so some of the 'mini-boss' like enemies you encounter at the start.

    Really I find that they have blended the enemy types really well and there is a great spread to fight against. I can't really choose a single one sad

    I really like running into the middle of that chapel and aggroing all of them and then fighting through the mob. They can be really brutal in numbers. Even with a complete build.

    Oscar when he's hollow. God damn he puts up a good fight. He dodges soul arrows like a pro and switches to his crest shield as soon as you start using them. His A.I. is great and if your under SL 30ish he can be a real challenge.

    Clams did something last night that propelled them to be my second most hated enemy. I was on Crystal Cave, did a blind run through the bridges, DIDN'T FALL OFF, ran past the Clams, got into Seath's lair... And the Clams got inside the fog door.

    Surprise Sex!

    Sif. The reveal is the most beautiful, scary moment in the game.

    The fight is insanely easy if you tackle it after Anor Londo but, still, that moment is entrancing.

    I've always been intrigued by the Black Knights. Warriors who served under Gwyn who wander Lordran (I only wish that were so in-game), they're fairly enigmatic and when I first encountered one I was frightened.

    I always loved fighting Capra demons, they're fun to have a fight with.

    I used to like fighting with Black and Silver knights before all I did to them was BS and parry them..

    Yeah, my intrigue in them dipped when I really just how easy it was to BS them.

    Funny how enemy difficulty can have an effect n how you feel about something eh?

    The dark wraiths my favorite room the one with 3 of them in there cause when I only had a +6 short sword and I pissed off all 3 it was bad for me but an epic fight with them none the less.

    Really, it depends on my character build. I LOVE going against taurus demons on my Dex build with my Black Bow of Pharis because I can kill them with headshots before they even get to me! Makes me feel soooo good. But other than that, on my tank build, I'm gonna be cliche and say Black Knights. I remember when I first went against the one in Undead Burg. Ohhhh, man. That was SO hard. Trying to tank him at SL less than 10 and with an un-upgraded starting weapon as a Knight! Now, whenever I kick their butt, I feel awesome because I've come so far. Except, that jump in skill has been the last month, right before I joined the forums. I played for about a month at release, but for some reason, Parrying and backstabbing was just for fancy people. My friend started out as Thief and that's all he was doing. He kept telling me that was the way to go, but I didn't bother. Tanking will always be more fun than backstabbing and parrying. Tis why I'm having trouble having fun with my No Shield character... hahahaha..
