    Most attempts while facing a boss.

    Post by Heroez Blade on Wed Aug 01, 2012 7:43 pm

    Hello people. I just thought i would ask you guys a quick question. What boss took you the most tries to defeat, whether it was messing around or actually trying?



    For me it was the Bed of Chaos. I know its one of the easier bosses, but the falling floors always get me lol. If its not the floors than its his over sized hands hitting me into the holes. It took me like 3-5 tries on one of my plays and i was actually trying lol. Anyway now on to your stories.

    You think that 3 or 5 tries is bad? It probably took me like 15 tries until I killed it on one of my playthroughs lol

    I never said 3-5 tries was a lot, but it was the most tries it took me to kill a boss. Btw "15 tries" is really funny. I am sorry but i can't even imagine how irritated you were.

    Nito, first playthough, killed me about 8-10 times.

    Though, giving credit where credit is due, it wasn't really Nito killing me but rather the 2 large skeletons at the back. I had weak weapons, and had no idea how to fight Nito then, now I just drop down, wait for him to waddle his big *** over to me and slap him a few times with my weapon or pepper him with offensive spells. I don't even move more than 2 ft. from the spot where I drop in from now - there's no need to.

    He really is very easy. lol

    I actually forgot about that boss. I struggle with him to but i think it only took me 2 tries at the most to kill him.

    I'm actually not sure which boss took me the most tries on my first playthrough. I think it's probably between Ornstein and Smough and the Bed of Chaos. Both took me roughly 10+ attempts to defeat. The latter was more annoying, because it just one-shots you cheaply unless you know exactly what to do. At least with O&S I felt like I was making progress (beat them first time in NG+ and NG++ =P).

    Stray Demon was another pain in the ***. As was Demon Firesage until I realised you could get him stuck on roots and arrow him from the end of the arena. Made my life a lot easier.

    On my NG+, it was definitely the Four Kings. But then I discovered weapon buffs and Great Magic Barrier.

    Capra Demon.
    That boss is genuinely the definition of "I see your ******** and raise you a back of rabid dos!". I was STOMPING through the game before then, and then from put me in my place with 30+ deaths.

    I actually forgot Capra Demon. I think the trauma was so great I blocked it from memory.

    "Oh, a boss. Okay, I'll just..." YOU DIED!!!!

    "Okay, next try. This time-" YOU DIED!!!!

    "Guddamnit! Now-" YOU DIED!!!!

    @carphil

    I fall in the holes mainly through carelessness so thats mainly my fault, but his hands are another big factor.

    @rynn

    I never thought i would see someone who died over 30 times while facing the capra. To me he was one of the easiest bosses.

    120+ straight failed attempts on the Bed of Chaos in a row, there is a reason I hate that boss with the passion of thirty Mel Gibson leaving hateful messages on the answering machines of their "Loves."

    Bed of Chaos- probably 20 tries on NG+6. He slaps hard! Firesage Demon- at least 15 tries.

    BoC is my kryptonite, sadly Tolvo has weaknesses like any superhero. Attractive women, giant flaming tree monsters, and insects. *** insects.

    Surprisingly, I got the Bed of Chaos after 3 (or was it 4?) tries. It was pure luck, no doubt, as I was just running around panicking in frustration...

    I died like 20 times trying to kill Capra Demon. Those ******* DOGS!!!

    However, the most time I've ever died was against the *whisper* Asylum Demon. 50 times... Freaking 50 TIMES!!!! Highly resistance against fisting, it obviously is. I still remember that "2... 2... 2... 2..." nightmare... It definitely broke me good, but thanks to it, I became the better warrior I am today.

    it was the Gaping Dragon. That mother ****** was a pain in the ***. I ******* hated that *****. I really hate him.

    I really, truly do.

    I despise him.

    I hope he goes to hell.

    As you can see, I don't like him.

    Ornstein and Smough took a good 20 or so tries before I beat them on my first playthrough, but now they might just be the easiest boss for me to beat. Just rush Smough and a few good hits with G. Halberd +5 lightning and he's dead. Then just keep rolling under Ornstein and basically do the same thing.

    Stray and Capra demon were much harder to kill. The Capra demon just because he was in such a cramped space and those dogs. Stray was a pain because of fall damage and the fact that I refuse to use spells with almost anything.

    O&S - 7 tries first playthrough (first time after that each time)
    Capra Demon - 10 tries first playthrough (first time after that each time)
    Taurus Demon - 4 tries first playthrough (first time after that each time, easy peasy now)
    Bed of Chaos (first time on first playthrough, but struggled on NG+)

    O&S were my worst though, played most of my first playthrough blind, it was great, wish I could start all over again, I am sure we all do..

    To be honest, the rest were easy, Gwyn, Nito, Firesage, Stray, Priscilla, Centipede etc.. never struggled at all with them.. first time each time, even Seath! Had no Estus left and was a STR/DEX character and beat Seath first time, blind, on first playthrough and used 7 Humanities winking was super proud!
