    I remember the first time I helped someone beat him (before I'd ever fought him myself.) After we won the host sent me a message, "Well that was anti-climactic!"

    I agree.



    I always veiwed the fact that Old Mand Gwyn didn't have a cutscene because he was so insane. There was no pleading for his life. There was no warning. Just an insane king and his mad attempt to kill you.



    As to the thread....

    Lost Izalith. I also wish they'd done more with the Valley of the Drakes and Ash Lake.

    Nothing is difficult in Dark Souls after you've beaten it once, but on the first playtrough it was the falls that got me the most.
    Most annoying thing in Dark Souls now a days? Tryhards.

    The Bed of Chaos or the darkness of the Tomb of Giants (Nito isn't so bad neither were the four kings)

    Actually when you get to about NG+++++++ (where I'm at now) everything gets way harder because they hit like they have rocket boosters attached to their weapons. Especially those damn clams and skele dogs.

    Clams were actually worse, believe it or not. The reason why is because the clams before seath could be aggrod from like miles away, and a clam close to you wouldn't be. Take another step you've got a goddamn army after you. Those clams hit hard.

    The Messages, cause they lied to me when it said Amazing Chest and all I got was giant fake boobies

    Meatshields people, dont leave yours at the bonfire.
    I rarely have an issue with the archers, I summon one guy to run at them first, maybe clear the way, maybe fall to his death, that just lets me see where he went wrong and correct it.

    Ring of fog or hidden body easily fixes the archers

    The archers weren't a problem for me. I just cooked the one in my way with a good old chaos fireball.

    I'm gonna have to say either the invisible pathway to Seath or the Tomb of Giants.

    Archers are easy once you have the DWGR ring.

    *Waits for someone to mention the Belrog in fellowship of the ring*
    That is rather ridiculous, I suppose itd be worse if something that flies in game fell to their death.
    (time to bait a gargoyle into falling to death.)

    Gwyn's lack of a Cut Scene is actually my favorite part about that fight, I feel like I'm the only person that absolutely loves how they handled Gwyn.

    Sometimes I would bait them to do that. It's hilarious.

    A cutscene where Gwyn turns around and he and the player just stare at each other for a few seconds, then Gwyn readies his sword and it bursts into flames. That's what I want.

    Why would that happen? Gwyn is like a mindless beast that just wishes to kill anything that enters the area. Why would he do that? Many of the cutscenes that are already in game I'm not a fan of for their pointlessness, why add another?

    Bloodred moss.

    Jk, probably all the damn walking, everything after placing the lord vessel, all the glitches, the fact that there is a prelit bonfire in front of the E. dragon with no explanation, and the wonky mechanics of the gravelord covenant.
