    Anor Londo almost made me punch my TV

    Post by rand on Sat Jul 21, 2012 10:44 pm

    Okay, so maybe not just the level itself, but I haven't thrown a controller down in anger/rage in a long time. Probably since somebody used the Ryu or Ken weak sweep low kick spam trick on me in Street Fighter 2 days, but holy crap.

    So the level kinda sucks. Yes those big giant tin cans aren't too bad, but with few bonfires, lotsa walking and hard hitting mobs it does suck.

    But here I am, I'm finally at the bosses who I can't kill to save my life. If there was a 500 million dollar reward on their heads I couldn't do it. I died 50 times yesterday (when I started counting). I tried fire/lightining, and magic. I tried Smog first, then last. I tried running a lot, standing and fighting. Light armor and heavy armor, the reality is I just suck bad at this game.

    So I decide it's time for some help. I go and farm a bunch of humanity incase I die a few times. Now I can't seem to even GET to the boss without someone invading me and killing me with some insane greatsword buffed with lightning or poison weapon that offs my lvl 65 character in 1 or maybe 2 hits.

    So yeah I'm a little peeved.

    Both Ornstein and Smough are weak to magic this is your best bet. Kill Ornstein first, Smough is cake when he's alone. If you do go for Ornstein second make sure to stay right under him, he only has two attacks that can hit you there and both are easily evaded! big grin

    try a bow or crossbow and stay behind the columns, i know its cheap but it works every time. anot is one of the busiest places because everyone summons help for OnS since theyre tought to take on by yourself.

    I really do respect a lot of players in this game because I've tried that whole bow thing and I gotta say I have no idea how someone does that and lives. Ornstein spears the crap outta me every time I try that trick and he does it really fast.

    This is my first play through, I kinda started/quit demon souls (loved it just seriously didn't beat it and then Dark Souls came out) so I know the technique this game demands but dang. It just leaves zero room for mistake.

    I'm thinking of farming souls just to level up a bit more to have some more hit defense since I get plastered so bad, but if I do continue to attempt to muscle through, should I clear out that bottom room (the two huge knights and the silver knight archer) before summoning someone? I have been sprinting past all that but that was when I solo'd it all.

    Na, most players who assist there will know to run past them unless you stop to fight! big grin I could link this vid I made of a low level Ornstein and Smough fight, its displays the strengths of the red tearstone ring and what a maxed magic broadsword could do. Also shows a decent display of dodging!

    Edit: Here's the vid!

    I'll try to make a magic sword, not a bad idea. When you said magic I thought you meant fling some spells at them. I'll give that a whirl.

    I think Ornstein is weak to fire, and Smough is weak to lightning so you can buy some resins to help too.

    The club is, but the one you find in anor London is upgraded to occult so it does magic damage as well! If you happen to have any white chunks you can take it to the giant blacksmith and make it a bit stronger! big grin

    Dude if you wait at the bonfire in human form you'll see signs. Just summon 1 phantom and he'll help. There's always Solaire too.

    There really not that hard...Just make sure you have a decent amount of health some decent armor and a decent weapon. I would also reccomend getting the Dark Wood Grain Ring if you don't have it. It helps a ton for evading. Also make sure you have a ascended weapon.

    Get the occult club and delevel it one level. It'll be Divine (+5?) then. And, that works great for the skellies in the catacombs.

    My best idea is to run, skip every mob, summon Solaire, use him to kill the 2 giants before the boss, because he can't skip them, then enter fog before anyone invades you. Use Solaire as your main shield, and make him distract Smough while you hit Ornstein. He may die, but he helps a lot. The crystal halberd is great for this fight.

    Mobility is really the deciding factor in this bossfight. You can stack armor, but you'll be clunking around the whole time and it wont end well. Just separate them using the pillars, go apeshit on O, and once it's just you and S you've got it.

    Thanks everyone again. Ended up finally getting a summons without being invaded and killed. Offed smalls then Smog. Kinda glad I didn't read too much about what happens AFTER you kill those two. The warping thing is fantastic! If i would have known warping was on the line I would have been WAY more pissed I was dying.

    Ornstein and Smough were the hardest boss in the game for me, after that I found was relatively easy bar Gwyn.

    Was quite disappointed with how easy the 4 lord souls were

    Go to NG+. I thought they were scrubs in NG too. That changes.

    After doing them a lot, they become easier, even solo. You've gotta keep moving. O will follow you quickly. Hit him fast, rotate the camera quick to look for S. Lock on and repeat. If S gets too close, lure O away from him.
