I have tried something that is slightly harder than a SL 1 run before. Never managed to kill Phalanx, though. Thinking about trying it again, though.

Congratulations Clarkie!!
Great job, really great job.

Till my last posting to this topic I didn't continued my NG+ SL1 run, but I have also only left 3-2, 3-3 and 1-4.
Allant will be beatable I think, not easily, but beatable :-)

The only thing which stops me to continue: I'm really scared to face maneater on SL1 in NG+...
How did you beat him?
On the first run I used spells to kill him, but on NG+ I think I have to use warding (with the magic ring to extend the magic slot). But then I have to melee him, which I really don't want at SL1 :shock:

He often get me in my normal runs with his "flying jump". His pounches are easily dodgeable, but his jumps are... hm... let me say he hit me often with it ;)

Greetings

Yeah, Maneater on SL 1 NG+1 was just horrible.
I died a LOT.
Eventually, I managed to effectively range him.
I used the Fog for the 1st - I think it was 400 arrows - but use LIGHT arrows, they do the most damage with that puny short bow.
Then, for the 2nd guy, I eventualy beat him by using poison and arrows - keeping him at distance.
I only went in to hack at his tail when i was CERTAIN i could get 2 hits.
I used a 2H Moon Short sword, 2 swipes, then RAN!
Beat him by patience, nothing clever at all.
I should be workin.....

Thanks for the hints, I think I will give maneater a try next week.
Till now I ever used heavy arrows, will also try light arrows as you recommended.

Thanks

Has anyone managed to beat False King in a melee fight without using dragon weapons? I wanted to try beating NG without using Dragon weapons because I felt like it would be too easy, but this fight seems to be a bit too much. I can generally avoid damage well, but the Crescent falchion only does 30 damage, so I imagine the fight could go on for 20-30 minutes. I got him to about half life on my first try, but I slipped up with Warding once and got destroyed. It was heartbreaking...

I also regret choosing the Magician as my starting class, putting me at SL6. I chose it so I could have two slots for Warding, but then I remembered the Ring of Magical Nature, so I regret not choosing Royal for the sake of purity.

So guys and gals,

after a little break of a few weeks, I continued my SL1 NG+ run.

Just before a few minutes I beat the Old One and moved to NG++ with my SL1 char.
NG+ was... let me say challenging, but really great.

So, now I think all targets are reached:

NG++ reached on SL1: done
NG completed without dying: done
NG+10 reached: done
Platinum trophy: done

So, waiting now for Project Dark :-)

Greetings
