    Need Ornstein x 2 help in NG++

    Post by Gunny1963 on Wed Jun 27, 2012 1:21 am

    It seems I can maybe hit him with arrows when he's behind a broken column. I killed Solare when I dunged fat boy so I was all by my lonesome and I don't think I can take him melee. Anybody have any success with this guy in NG++?????

    Im currently in NG++++ sl 22 (stuck on Gwyn)
    Get Solaire to hold fatty or vice versa.. whomever you want to kill 1st.
    Equip DWGR ring, upgraded Eagle Shield, Chaos Winged Spear with 10 humanity.
    Just poke at Orsteins life before Solaire gets downed lol..
    For fatty get a column between you & him, he can't get to you.
    At my NG Power Within is a must. Ditch spear to Uchigatana or gravelord sword.
    Good luck Praise the Sun *pro tip, you can stagger Orstein with heavier weapons use it to your advantage.. rep me for this Sun

    @Gawain He killed Solaire so he needs someone else.

    Add me; I can help. I don't know your soul level, but you should be able to summon help from the interior bonfire.

    If you have to go solo, I'd use a heavy crossbow and heavy bolts instead of a bow. The rate of fire and damage dealt is higher.

    When I had to go solo on both of them, I would lock onto the one behind the enemy in front of me. Keep one enemy between you and your locked guy so they have less of a chance to get behind you. Hide behind a broken pillar and snipe with the crossbow.

    Thanks for the help guys! I'm not online so I've gotta do this solo. I guess you can say I'm a Dex build at 69 and strength at 52. I literally have NO vitality compared to what I could have. I AM using the Eagle Shield and the DWGR. I was just thinking since I've got this REALLY TALL character in front of me who SEEMS to get a little stuck behind columns at times that I might be able to hit him with a couple arrows when that happens. What bow would be best? Is there a one handed bow? I use the Longbow +15 and it does pretty good damage with Feather Arrows.

    I have ALL of the bows. Darkmoon, Composite, Long, Pharis and all of the crossbows. At the range I'm talking about which one will give me the best bang for the buck and I will take you for your word and build them up.

    Thanks for helpin an old man trying to stay young! lol

    This is a vid that I made a little while back that was for a starting lvl challenge. Thought I would post it to demonstrate some melee tactics. I'm using an activated red tearstone ring, hence the first two hits. This ramps damage dealt by a ton! Your choice of elemental weapon and what moveset you're familiar with is key. I would suggest taking out Ornstein first, he's a much greater threat than Smough in their upgraded forms. =)
    Also, consider that Ornstein is weakest to magic damage, its why I used and enchanted weapon!

    I did it that way the first two times. I wanna get his ring and soul to make that spear. I'm level 204 or something like that. I'm sure you youngsters can defeat him at level 100 but I can't. I don't buff anything. I just fight toe to toe then run like hell. lol

    It's very easy to dodge his attacks if you stay in close. Roll toward him when he tries to skewer you, and only attack after he wiffs with a swing.

    Oh, and use pyromancy with a maxed glove. At this point you should have enough GCs to kill him.

    I will try that next time. Thanks. If I can kill Gwyn with pyromancy I can kill these guys. I kinda figured that but I'm not the best dodger and ducker. Getting there though.
