i wasnt able to get seaths tail until this year. i had done just about everything else you could do before you got it.

i'm surprised fox is having such a hard time with artorias because i feel like the basic design of that boss is recycled quite a few times in the later games.

people say to let him break the crystal (which i can do) and then to run around behind him and hit his tail (which i do)

but i can only hit it once or twice before he un-stuns usually, and that's not enough

it also forces me to get right up on his tail, which has the really obnoxious trait of changing from a non-damaging object into a damaging object instantly and with no tell that i can see. it'd happen with gaping dragon too—you'd be on his legs and it'd be fine, then he'd "start" his walk-forward attack thing, and if your collider was touching his you'd be damaged and thrown back before the animation for the walk had actually begun

it just feels like all the worst tropes of the game's boss fights in one enemy idk. gotta get that tail

Seath is a pretty badly designed fight. He's not super tough as a whole but he's not that fun either and the tail is a pain in the ass. You have to be careful to hit his tail far enough from his body - closer to his body it's easy to hit what you think is the tail and have it not count.

One of the best ways to get the tail is with upgraded pyro: let him destroy the crystal, run around behind him, and hit him a couple times with a good spell and that should do it.

ive only played a couple minutes of ds3 but i like the way it handles jumping so much more. trying to slow out of a run so that you roll instead of jumping feels like a pretty mushy process

Hah I always change the jump back to the old style in the later games. I hate pressing in the control stick.

Jumping is real dicey either way.

New Londo is one of my low key favorite little areas. The gloomy atmosphere just feels so thick and oppressive, and the gimmicks are really well done.

I think that I was just underleveled when I got to the DLC, in my current playthrough I'll probably wait to tackle him

and yeah, his timing is weird relative to other DKS1 bosses, but is definitely redone in the Abyss Walkers and even Orphan in some ways

I remember being surprised when I beat Orphan the first time, too

the level design is pretty neat so far, i just find the ghosts-traveling-through-walls thing to be not my favorite kinda combat

im glad that they're keeping me stocked in transient curses so far tho

This and Sens are my favorite non-DLC parts of the game, and the ones that seem most directly a nod to Zelda games.

I've gotten the passive versions of those before but the other night in New Londo was the first time I ever got a hostile one. Freaked me the hell out especially since I was farming and knew there shouldn't have been anything attacking me when stuff started shooting at me out of nowhere.
