    Killing Clams

    Post by Dark Spirit EliteBiker20 on Fri Aug 03, 2012 8:28 pm

    Just wondering, is there a really fast way of killing those clams in Crystal Caves? I have been using the Dragonslayer Bow, but now that I am on NG++++++, its taking about 10 or more arrows to kill one of them. I know I could use magic, but I would rather save magic to kill Seath super quickly.

    Why do you need to kill them?

    Extra souls, and so none of them follow me into the boss fight.

    Well, you could just run to seath's chamber and after the cutscene quit/load your game. You will appear right in front of the fog to seath and clams won't follow you through it. If you want the souls, then i'm afraid there is no fast way to kill them. I usually just aggro them one by one with a bow and then circle them for some safe hits.

    Its too much work for someone as lazy as me to either quit the game or homeward bone out. I want some idea of certain weapons that can easily make clam juice out of them.

    @Mundo And the rest of the Level to run.

    The Quit/reload is best to avoid aggro. It may be easy to just 2H something big and hard hitting and stagger them until they die.

    Hmm... too much work to quit to menu screen and reload your character but you're willing to kill them all one by one? big grin

    Okay, try this: Aggro one with a bow, then use a big weapon which staggers them, then don't attack again right away or they will get a chance to hit you. Wait until the stagger animation is about to end, and then attack again. This will stunlock them and they won't be able to do anything if you get the timing right.

    My explanation is quite confusing but i hope you understand what i mean.

    I understand. Yeah I guess taking them out one by one is more troublesome than quiting and restarting.

    They can be stunlocked, so just kill them. They're really not that hard. Get a big shield and the DSS, or a 2h GS.

    Personally, I'll just two-handed heavy attack the heck out of those Man-Eater Shells with a maxed out Lightning Zweihänder. The first strike will pin down the MES and the second one will finish it off for good.
