was this guy supposed to be a total pushover, or is full havel's + dragontooth just overpowered?
i had heard he was easy if you parry him but i didn't parry once, i just ate his attacks and heavy attacked the shit out of him
Some builds reck certain bosses, parrys and strength/poise give him a hard time but sex builds can't roll away most of the time because of his fuck big range.
It's like how butterfly is the easiest bios if you have any kind of ranged.
It felt intentional, like it symbolized your progression as a warrior and also how he's only a shadow of his original power.
He was easy to cheese by keeping stalagmites between you and him and circle-strafing around those so his grabbing attack would reach you but you could still get a hit in.
Most other main bosses like 4 kings and Biggie & Smalls, and especially the DLC bosses, were much more difficult than him.
even the dlc bosses were fucking cake with havels+dragon tooth
i was having a fuckton of trouble with kalameet trying to quick roll with a spear and jab between his attacks. eventually i just put on havels with the dragon tooth and tanked everything and just smashed him to death.
with manus i went down there with like 10 estus and 2 humanity, thought i was going to die but wanted to test the waters. same thing, just smashed him to death. i didnt even use the silver pendant. it felt too easy
He's suppose to be pretty weak. Gwyn is not only old as fuck, but also spent the last who knows how long burning alive and has just about lost his mind. This isn't the final showdown between two superpowers. You're here to kill an old man and take his throne.
>Making the final boss a joke was intentional, really! It wasn't just poorly thought out boss design!
Fromdrones will come up with anything to excuse the problems of their games.
Gee, I wonder. If making him a joke was intentional, then why did Miyazaki say in interviews that he regret adding the ability to parry Gwyn?
the trade-off is that you're extremely limited in your playstyle, especially before you're able to equip and use full havel & dragon tooth. and even then it's a pretty boring playstyle.
You never died repeatedly to any boss?
>Guys I used the heaviest, toughest armor in the game with the best poise rating, and I used one of the strongest STR weapons in the game to lame it out, why was the fight so easy
GEE I DUNNO
I never learned to parry, so he was pretty fucking hard because of his aggressiveness. Not to mention I used the Murakumo and it felt it was harder because I had to get closer than normal to hit.
i did but not when i was using havels+tooth
i would always use havels+lightning spear and med roll around or elite knight+lightning spear and quick roll and i died a lot with those builds
as soon as i whipped out the tooth the last three bosses of the game were a joke
To be fair, the final bosses in other Souls games are also easy as fuck. Bloodborne was also easy as fuck, especially the "true" final boss which you can essentially just run up to and R1 it to victory.
