A lot of people beat their heads against the wall against him which is why I considered him.

No bully

Sidenote: Pontiff got like 1000% easier after I just started parrying the initial and using a shield.


#282

Fine, have some Pontiff bully instead then:


#283

You can actually one shot him with the right build depending on the new game cycle.


#284

That’s NG+3, with a level 387 char :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#285

I thought your health looked a little high but yeah if you go for glass cannon build you can do it a lot lower if you use Yhorms axe.


#286

Yeah, it’s very doable in regular NG:

I was just curious if I could still pull it off in NG+3. Seems I can’t, even with a 2000+ AR hornet ring reposte. Oh well :man_shrugging:

Now, onto Gundyr


#287

No bully D=


#288

I can’t parry :smiley:


#289

I’ve done it with Pontif only a few times, that there was my first parry attempt with that char. So a bit of luck was involved lol

I’m wondering what to do with Gundyr though… he’s been through so much, I think I’ll just parry him to death, see how quick of a kill I can get :thinking:


#290

I can parry in bloodborne. I came out of the womb playing zelda, so I can perfect block damn near anything. Can even perfect block using the 2-handed door shield

But God damn it, dark souls. Why does your parry system have to be so odd?


#291

Quick video while I’m working on Gundyr


#292

Jesus christ. I’ve killed him fast, but never like that. My fastest run was at like level 220 with 60 dex/luck + bleed Warden Twinblades. And I took 2 hits. It was under 2 minutes, but not THAT short. You spent more time with prep than actually killing it.


#293

Could’ve been quicker if I were at point blank, and if I’d realised you needed to skip is dialogue to get him to transform.

Oh well, going to be rushing to NG+7 these next few days, gonna do a meme run once I’m there. Any suggestions on how to beat a boss a certain way, bring them ^^


#294

There we go @IWannaBeATiger, just for you:

NG+3, no HUD, no rings, no armour, parries only, unupgraded weapon and shield, flawless

Why the firelink greatsword? Because what’s better than reminding Gundyr about how he never got to link the fire?


#295

No bully D=


#296

Extra bully cause he was a son of a whore on my first run that I played completely solo (no summons).

I need to learn to parry.


#297

Mind you, that wasn’t a first try

According to all my footage, this was try #23 :joy:


#298

My first run ever, he killed me 6 times. The only two who killed me more were Nameless King and The Twin Princesses.

NK got me over a dozen times before I decided I didn’t care that much.


#299

Funny enough, in this run, I died to Ballsack McCurseTree enough times I just gave up. Far too many small but constant damage sources to keep up hypermode :unamused:


#300

Yeah, that’s not a hard boss until you try to do a goofy run. At that point, it gets really annoying.

I think my next run is gonna be barefisted. First try doing that

Christ, barefisted Yhorm is gonna take hours. I will probably overlevel by fuckin miles.
