    Bonewheel skeletons strategy (Catacombs)

    Just before you encounter the titanite Demon, turn right, down the ladder and through the hole in the floor. Jump down onto the little ledge on the left. Aggro them with arrows and they will roll towards you and against the wall. When they stop rolling they will walk away a bit. That is the moment where you can shoot them with arrows. It took me 2 Standard Arrows with a +8 Longbow to take one down (relevant stats: strenght 33, dexterity 24). To lure the ones out that are around the corner, simply shoot an arrow against the far left wall. If you spot them shoot them and they will run at you. After clearing the room from the Bonewheels you can smoothly take on the Black Knight.

    I think it would be helpful to add the information that there are 7 of them, because you can't see 2 or 3 of them because they are around the corner, when you enter the room this way.

    Aah, sorry guys. Just re-read the wiki and saw that there's already a stragety like that, just with using fireballs instead of arrows. :oops:
    Nevermind.

    I like to aggro all of them to get under that ledge then plunge attack and take them all out in one glorious sweep. Kinda risky but its hella fun lol!

    What I do is, after killing the black knight, I drop down to the lowest platform and attract their attention. Once they are all spinning underneath me I blast them with the king dragon great axe, this is the easiest strategy I found winking

    I hate those damned wheel skeletons although more so in the painted world.

    Or you could just use the shortcut, summon Leroy and run to Pinwheel, and you'll only get one or two bonewheels after you.

    I just walk out slowly. Wait for one to roll toward me. Side step out of the way. Run up to it when it recovers and kill it.
