But that charge is like trying to dodge a double-wide train car that can still hit you after it passes you. A bit frustrating, but nothing like Rom, IMO

Circle around to her back or her sides, stick to them like glue. The charge attack was never a problem for me.


Likewise, Ebrietas is one of the bosses that will always be difficult for me. I can get behind her and dodge the majority of her attacks, but then the sets of three lazers will always get me, and they OHKO. She never even charges anymore because I stay so close, but I can't avoid the lazers. When I win, it's because of the luck of her not using those damn lazers!

The lasers are easy to avoid. Unlock and run in a wide circle until the volleys cease. You'll never get hit by an arcane attack, so you can bolster your blunt def

I just beat the Watchdog of the Old Lords DEFILED CHALICE and that by far is the hardest boss I've faced in the game.

I've never faced a boss that I've had to beat without any margin of error in any of the Souls games. If you have 25 Vit like I had and cut that in half, the fight will be impossibly hard and must beat beaten flawlessly.


100+ attempts later I finally have done it. No idea what waits ahead...


Also people say Amy, I killed her with less than 20 gunshots. Didn't take one hit. Weird how subjective these bosses are.

RFC undead giant OHKO's with almost every attack if you run 50v and zero hp/def runes. At least, if it catches you with a dh attack or a combo. Amy is super easy if you bait attacks. Same with watchdog
