    @EMarkM - You can backstab the boar. Thrust your weapon deep into his anus.

    Also, one thing to note, you can only do it on that boar. If you're unfortunate to find any other boars during the game, you cannot stab it in the anus

    so managed to squeeze a few hours in last night and finished my first play through. sure there was a few things i forgot to do before going on to NG+. tried the fina area a few times human, invasion central.

    first one blasted me with pursuer while i was bowing, i think im not going to be the honourable sort anymore. the other one was an DM invader, good etiquette, totally smashed me though some curved sword. maybe a great sword with crystal weapon or something. think he might have had greater magic sheild or something as my spells or magic weapon did nothing so switched to lightning which also did bugger all. then he one shotted me! yay.

    so i still suck at pvp.

    Whats this!

    What is all this bosses dropping humanity and homeward bones nonsense!

    Back in my unpatched game you were lucky to have the bosses drop anything, the miserable bastards, they would be like "oh no, I could drop a humanity if I felt like it...but I don't...ha!"

    The jumping arse monsters in Lost Izalith nolonger have their massive aggro range! You mean I've been spending 30 minutes to an hour slogging through that LIKE A MAN and all these fancy update people could just saunter past? Blasphemy!*

    Plus I've noticed they've made a few enemy placements slightly less dickish from the unpatched version. The archers ontop of the Tarus demon tower use to be positioned in that one was right ontop of the ladder, meaning it took split second timing to dodge, now they've shuffled them back a bit giving you more time to dodge roll away.

    Not sure how I feel about all this 'slightly less dickish' thing the Developers have going on.

    Hell I even got the Channeler's Trident to drop off the very first channeler in Undead Parish!

    *while I may act insulted that they've made the game easier, a lot of the things they've changed I've noticed were mostly one of the few times I would say they were cheap damage/deaths (especially the archers, that was basically luck based if you didn't get hit or not).

    Holy fuck Artorias!! :o Such an epic fight and yet I barely make a scratch on him, even with my fully upgraded Quelaag Furysword. This could take a while.

    i think he might have fire resistance? could be wrong. its all a matter of learning his moves and prolly better avoiding rather than blocking them, and trying to make him fkinch when he does his big black magic powerup thing, one or two times of him doing that and his hits could one shot you even through a shielkd they could take down your whole stamina bar and most health.

    @Tuffty Just hang back and dodge his attacks a little to get a decent understanding of his moveset. He’s hellishly fast but if you smash him with a powerful weapon he won‘t take long at all.

    If you’re trying to block his attacks, it won’t work. He has powerful dark magic and will cause you to stagger. Roll like you’ve never rolled before.

    Problem is that based on my dex pyro build, I really only have the Quelaag Furysword and a Divine Iiato +10 to speak of so this might take longer. Is it "normal" to do maybe 50 points of damage with each hit on him? Getting used to his attacks now but it's just it could take forever. Might be best to summon someone to help.

    Have you got something with a bit more reach, like a spear? I find it really helps having additional range with something

    @Tuffty

    If you are a giant tank with godly stamina and a shield like GSoA, then just tank him. If not, go light. Keep 25% roll speed and learn to side roll his swings and combos. Two hand your weapon and wear a shield on your back like Sanctus or more effectively Grass Crest.

    In terms of resistance, he is pretty much very resistant to everything. Physical damage, fire, lightning, and sorceries.

    And, Artorias laughs at your Furysword.

    Are your pyromancies doing much damage to him, i found with my magic its a question of not being too greedy with getting hits in, doge attack, cast one spell go back to moving about dodging, never try to hit him with two in a row.

    ^ Good question, my great fireballs do about 200 dmg which is handy. I have great combustion which does about 120. I've fire tempest, fire orb and poison mist too. I wonder if I can stack up on fire spells to wittle his health down at least and use iron flesh too.....Damn, now I want to play it again! Damn you work!!

    Iron Flesh got nerfed so it's not nearly as useful as it used to be. It has huge limitations for the Artorias fight because it makes you so slow, and doesn't provide enough protection from his attacks to warrant the movement penalty.

    Nobody laughs at the Crystal sorcery spells, I swear they have innate armour penetration like the Rapiers do on ripostes.

    Morning all.

    Thanks for the tips on the pure faith build, got an occult great scythe +5 which is working out nicely. Started the build on Friday, had a few hefty sessions over the weekend and took him past 4 Kings, Seath and Nito so just the second part of Lost Izalith to go.

    Anyways, I haven't played the DLC before, can anyone recommend what SL to start it at? At 75 at the moment, was gonna complete all of vanilla apart from Gwyn first then have a crack.

    So, the pig's dead. Permanently, it turns out, which I wasn't sure was going to be the case. Gate open. Died some more times.
