Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011
I don't think I ever even went to the Tower of Latria.
Hit a road bump in Anor Londo. Those Silver Knight archers with the huge bows that fire arrows that look like full blown swords are just destroying me any time I get across that bridge outside the castle. Getting over the bridge is fine. It's when I get onto the ledge that's the problem. It's so narrow that there's little room to manoeuvre.
I initially went left to try and take out the archer over on that end, but I just got shredded from the archer on the right pumping my back full of arrows. And of course if I try and turn to block those arrows, the archer on my left will take over because my back is obviously exposed to HIM then.
After that I tried going after the archer on the right first, which I figure is what you're supposed to do since the archer on the left can't seem to reach you from his position (once you start heading right, anyway. Stay on the middle of the ledge and you're fucked from both ends). Guy on the right just keeps loosening off arrows point blank, though, and by the time I get close enough to force him into switching over to sword and shield (assuming I even manage that before one of the arrows knocks me off the tightrope of a ledge), my guard is practically shredded. I also can't seem to kick anybody in this game. I keep checking to see if I'm doing it wrong, and as far as I'm aware I'm doing what's required in order to kick someone off a ledge. And yet the only time I ever do it is by accident when I'm trying to strike someone. The only time I managed to get the knight off the ledge was when he swung at me and my shield knocked him back, but then for some stupid reason I wound up falling off right after him and I just shut it off at that point.
