    What's your favorite boss in Dark Souls?

    Post by Ecko on Mon Jun 11, 2012 2:32 am

    I apologize in advance if this question has been asked already. I searched but could find no similar thread.

    Dark Souls has some bosses which are disappointing to the point of feeling more like mini-bosses (lolIronGolem) and some which are just rage inducing (F#$%^&*BEDOFCHAOS).

    But then there are the ones that are genuinely fun to fight. They provide a challenge without being "ahmahgawd" or maybe you just think they look super badass. So what is your favorite boss battle?

    Mine is Ornstein and Smough. Captain Fat doesn't really do much, but the extra distraction is something that keeps my attention completely on the fight more so than most times in Dark Souls. Ornstein is the absolute number one swag master in my opinion (And I'm normally way too white to use a term like swag master, so that's saying a lot) so he more than makes up for any lack in combat skill on his partners end while looking damn cool doing it.




    Or, to sum up this thread real quickly:

    Gwyn. I don't parry him.

    Correction: I can't parry him.

    He's SO much fun to just FIGHT. Oh jeez. SO MUCH FREAKING FUN! I want to go do it now.

    Gwyn. I like fighting humanoid enemies most of all, and he's the boss that most behaves like one.

    Out of both souls games, False King Allant, out of this Souls game, I think Gwyn - they are very reminiscent of each other if you don't parry gwyn, well just if you don't riposte gwyn.

    Gravelord Nito. I love his miasma of death AoE attack. And the music fits him so good. I wish he was harder.

    I agree. Take away the skeletons, and add more complicated and more difficult AI for Nito. That'd be AWWWESOME!

    Best looking fights for me are iron golem and bell gargoyles, I normal summon step back a watch, spectacular especially the golem.

    I despise the iron golem with a passion, he has an awful habit of knocking me off the shelf due to my stupid instinct to block rather than dodge.
    I like queelag and gwyn about equally. then smoughstien then bell gargoyles. those are my favorites. perhaps I'm just a sucker for flaming weapons.

    all you'd need to do to make nito harder is make that black cloak of his immune to damage so you'd have to attack from the front, also make him use his grab attack if you linger there to long. and yes he is one of my faves though my most liked boss would be the gaping dragon especially for the opening sequence:D

    Stay away from the sword! Everyone knows a wolf's weakness is his soft underbelly. No? Just me? Am i the only one who loves documentaries about animal fighting tactics?

    sif's been mentioned and a wolfs weakness is not having its paws on the ground generally the whole underbelly bit helps. although that sounded vaguely futurama ish.
