    I haven't done it myself , however I do recall watching a clip on youtube in which a player beats down the Iron Golem.

    I'd say go for it , with a Chuck Norris build :pirat:

    I was thinking more along the lines of a SL1 bare fist play through, just to make things a tad more interesting. big grin

    Can you imagine the sense of euphoria you'd get from bringing down the likes of the Four Kings in such a way? twisted

    i dont think that SL 1 bare fist playthrough is possible, but if you try a +5 raw caestus in each hand will be close enough

    Why not?

    Granted, it would take a while, and you'd need to be at the top of your game all of the time, but there is no reason to suppose that it couldn't be done.

    I mean, what greater challenge could there be, and so it's got to be worth a try?

    The four kings are a constantly spawning boss. It would be impossible to beat them with fists alone.

    This shows and proves, that 4 kings are indeed, the hardest boss in the game if you do not over lev
    el king

    If you do undertake this amazing task, I pray you have PVR, I would love to watch you take down bosses like that!

    I beat the game in NG+5 as a nude dragon, with 50 VIT and 40 END (and it was a pyromancer, but I didn't use spells), but that is still stronger than just bare fists.

    Bare fists do almost no damage without buffs or hyper mode. I'd recommend fist weapons, Power Within, and Red Tearstone Ring.

    Maybe add some Fireballs, and be Ryu.

    Dragon fists do a lot of damage! More than fully upgraded caestus, on any upgrade path, can. Their drawback is their range and moveset.

    As for 4 Kings with only fists... I'd love to see it done, but I'm skeptical. With the amount of time it'd take you to kill one, you'd have all 4 of them out at once the entire time. Not only would you have to constantly dodge while only getting insubstantial damage in here and there, which would take a ridiculous amount of time (hours) to finish the fight, I think there's also some special insta-kill attack they can do when all 4 are out. So, until I see it done... I'll have to call impossible on that.

    The Bare Handed playthrough is possible. I honestly don't see any stated rules above.

    Nevermind. BlA1NE got to it before me.

    SL1 fists only run with Dusk Crown Ring and no bonfires without upgrade your estus.

    I'm a bit confuse about these so-called "SL1 runs". Does it mean that one is required to start as a pyromancer? Because aside that class, there isn't any other one that actually starts off at SL1.

    I can see how this could be winnable if there was a limit to the number of Kings that you could have on the screen at any one time, and you were somehow able to bring each one down to the point where a single bare fist hit would bring home the kill, but this would be a very big ask, and you'd need 'the Patience of Job' to pull it off. big grin

    Yes Bloodios, the Pyro is the only class open to you, as it wouldn't be a SL1 run if you went beyond SL1, would it? lol

    Right, I suppose I was just trying to avoid the truth. Well, I guess that means I'll just stick the "non-leveling" run instead of "SL1" then. I always avoid pyromancer every time I attempt a self-challenge run, since I think that starting off with it actually gives me too good an advantage when compared to other classes, which makes the challenge itself that less challenging.

    "Theoretically possible", but would take extreme skill and even more luck. With 4 Kings on the screen you can have up to 4 homing missile attacks on you at once. Good luck with that. Also, the Abyss isn't that big, it's actually a big rectangle with invisible walls so you can't just run from the homing missiles that easily. If you hit a wall with a king or two near, good luck getting out. If you kill one, another one will spawn so there will always be 4 up if you can't kill them fast enough.


    I just made this video today. I purposely waited till all 4 Kings spawned before I began attacking. Used an SL 3 wanderer with starting gear only, though I upgraded my weapon to a +10 fire. It was insanely hard with this setup, I can't imagine doing it with fists only. With Dragonbody it's possible, but with human fists... Well watch the vid and see if you think you could withstand dodging them for the amount of time required to do 8k damage with your fists. We're talking hours here.

    You are correct. The pyro is one of the strongest starting classes so an "sl 1" run is easier than most of the other classes. At SL 1 the Pyro actually has more total stat points than some of the other classes like Sorcerer, Priest and Thief. So even though their official "level" is one, in reality they are higher than some of the others.


    Add in the fact that they have 12 str(good shield selection), decent end/vit, the only class to start with Pyro and a decent starting weapon/armor.. you lose a lot of the challenge. Just pick any starting class and don't level up, it's the same thing even though it's not "sl 1" and most likely it will be harder. If you want to go all out then do a starting gear only run as well, where you can't use anything but what you start with. Just upgrade it.

    Just because you're a Pyro, doesn't mean you have to use Pyromancies when carrying out a SL1 run. To date, I've limited the use of mine to farming the slimes in the Depths, oh... and to finish off the Asylum Demon after I brought it's health down with my ungraded hand axe, but that was only because I wanted to burn it's arse after all the grief that it has caused me in the past.

    The point is, if you feel that having Pyromancies in your arsenal makes the game too easy for you, shelve the glove, or even better still drop it and quit the game to loose it for good, at least that way you haven't got it to tempt you when things start to get tough.
