Even starting the dlc is alittle difficult lol. Guess I'll have to do that much later then.
I always fight Havel before Taurus idk why. Still .that I just found out you could backstab him, no wonder the fights always took forever. Still for an early fight its probably one of the best in the game. in a kinda small space with that Badass that could oneshot you is nerve racking. Wonder how the fight is if you wait till later in the game if its easier.
As far as I'm aware there's no need to start a new game unless you somehow fucked up and killed Dusk. In fact I watched a friend download the DLC the other week. It's probably not a good idea either as the DLC is pretty rough. Those Iron Giant's are pretty darn fast.
The Havel fight is one of those ones I now wonder how the hell I found it difficult. Similar to the Stray Demon. Coincidentally I actually found the Firesage Demon a bit harder on my last playthrough. Seemed to stand across the other side of the room and just annihilate me with it's melee attack.
I fucking hate Titanite Demons. Died a few times to the one in the church because it moved be in to a bit of debris and I couldn't move. That's probably one thing that annoys me in this. Not being able to move because an enemies pinky toe is in the way then being flattened. Remember losing it a bit when that happened to a Silver Knight in Anor Londo.
