You need a divine to permanently kill skeletons or knock them off a cliff. Ignore that way, except for maybe grabbing all the items in the graveyard. Just keep retryjng if you die. One weapon in there might be worth it for you.
lol I use the run and loot system alot Seph... especially early in my game. I also ran and looted the fire keepers soul in New Londo Ruins without being able to kill those ghosts. I had just a few souls so I didn't mind losing them as long as I got the soul... I'm up to plus 4 on that.
Right now I'm about to fight Biggy Smalls and I'm a little nervous about it. I hear you have to kill biggie first for a certain ring. I looked that ring up and I don't see anything special about it really so I might just kill whomever Solaire doesn't go for. Separate and conquer is going to be my strategy. Any of you guys have any tips for this battle?
Wouldn't recommend killing Smough first on your first playthrough. I tried it on my second play there and eventually had to settle with just beating them solo (summoned Solaire the first time).
I'd expect to get destroyed the first few times. Try and stay around the outside (use the pillars as guidelines) and just try to learn their attack patterns.I literally spent about 5-8 tries just circling around trying not to the die without getting many hits in before I was comfortable being more aggresive.
It's pretty easy to get Ornstein first as he tends to charge ahead of Smough and his attacks are well telegraphed. You can get a few hits in before backing off. Don't worry about overusing estus flasks as once you actually beat Ornstein you're pretty much on easy street with Giant/Super Smough.
Pro Tip: FIRE WEAPON. You'll be owning them so easily. As for which one to go for first, go little then big (I forget, but thats the easier way right?). There isn't anything different except you get so and so's soul and armor but by the time you get the armor it sucks and the soul won't benefit your Uchigatana.
As for Solaire helping you, don't divide and conquer. Either go at the same guy or use Solaire as a diversion. The reason is once you kill one, the 2nd guy will regain all his health.
Edit: Also, having a fast roll can be very helpful in the fight.
Thanks for the tips, I finally beat those two. It took me 3 tries though. I had to lighten my load by wearing the Hamel ring to get a fast roll which left me with very little poise. *I usually wear the wolf ring for the poise boost* That was a hell of a fight though. I didn't go for any particular guy, Fatty just happened to die first just as Solaire died. Had to take on Slim by myself. Great battle and you get such a great feeling once you beat these bosses lol
Thanks for the tips.
btw finally got my Uchigatana up to +15.. I did that a couple days ago and now I have Greater Magic Weapon enchant to use on it. Really looking forward to the Crystal Magic Weapon enchant.
Also those Dark Wraiths look cool as fuck. How do you join that covenant? Right now I'm with the Princess Guard.
You need to NOT place the altar or talk to the new giant NPC in firelink. If you've done any of those, you can't join. If yoy haven't done them, then beat Sif (aka best boss in the game) and then go beat Four Kings.
Edit: Too bad you don't play online. There is ALWAYS a message saying "Amazing chest ahead"
