Is it the best bossfight of the Souls series?
>>
Nah. I still prefer Gehrman, just for the setting, music and story beats. And after that it's Artorias, O&S and Tower Knight.
>>
It's the hardest, but not the best.
>>
it was alright

I like most bossfights that only have one boss.

I fucking hate it when there is a "boss" thats just w whole lot of fucking NPCs that I just fought to get the the fight. ie skelly lords

Having two bosses isnt as bad O&S was a great bossfight but I would still prefer just a single boss.

Just meh opinion

>tfw NG++ Orphan pushed me to my limits even on my shitter BL150 build

Easily the most satisfying boss out of all the Soulsborne ones I've beaten, which is all except the two DLC's after Sunken King because I got bored after fighting a giant cat boss and a Smelter remake.

I really need to go back and finish those but cba.
>>
Gehrman is the cream of Bloodborne.

The DLC was fantastic, but 'new' things aren't automatically better by virtue of their age.
>>
I wonder how any other souls protagonists would fare against the Orphan. Nigga is so aggressive that he will probably shield break even the havel's shield and even DWGR is not agile enough to dodge his stream of attacks.
>>
>>324013037

Thematically it's great, but it's extremely easy and boring to play. Ludwig and Orphan are better

It's not a birth and not even his real body.

His real body is the shadowy creature you see after the boss fight.
>>
>>324012856
Not a boss and not very hard
>>
>>324013058
DWGR is ridiculously strong, you're underestimating it. Although DS is nowhere near as generous with stamina as BB.
As for blocking it really only depends on the values of how much stamina his attacks would drain. Could be nothing, could be all of it.
>>
>>324013124
his timings are more difficult and he has a more versatile moveset with ranged and AoE attacks

I've only fought Gherman twice but each time I stayed at long range and parried his slow swipes, you don't even have to dodge him most of the time. Never died to him

>people who complain about bosses being easy because you can parry them

Don't fucking parry, then? Every boss fight in BB is much more fun, and much more challenging if you actively decide not to parry. Don't bitch about a completely optional mechanic that lets you cheese bosses from 30 yards away.
>>
>>324013293
It's a legitimate flaw that could be easily fixed by tightening the parry windows. You don't even need to react fast to parry Gherman, it's ridiculous
>>
>>324013058
Its a boss designed so that the way you play in Dark Souls becomes completely not viable. Which makes it super fun and one of the best in terms of originality and systems.

>He chains 4 hits including a throw or a charge and uppercut that's also homing

You can't roll out of that, and it'll stunlock you out of poise.

>omg this boss is easy when I cheese him

This is like those shitters who do their first playthrough of Souls games with magic, and then come to /v/ complaining about how easy every encounter and boss was because they cheesed it with magic.
>>
>>324013194
>versatile moveset with ranged and AoE attacks
As does Gehrman.

And 'difficulty' in Souls games boils down to levelling so it's a moot point.

I don't care if Orphan wrecked you through counter-damage hits. Gehrman is a much better overall package, with only Maria coming close.
>>
>>324013405
Because he's one of the legit great ones you fight.
They aren't called gods for nothing and even if he's obviously weakened, withered and never had a chance to properly grow up he can mess your shit up with his sheer reaction time and ability to control lighting.
>>
>>324013542
>it's not a flaw if you can choose to not do it
Anon this approach to everything is dumb, if a boss is cheesable then it needs to be fixed not ignored because "Well you COULD be SL1 with your bare fists so its actually really hard"'
Optional challenges you put on yourself are not an indication of how good/bad/hard the bosses are
>>

So what your saying is that the balancing is shit and that the boss is poorly designed because it's easy to cheese and hard only if you choose to handicap yourself?

So why not fix the parry windows so unskilled players like me have an actual challenge without handicapping ourselves?
>>
>>324012135
Nah not really. If the fight would have been only his first phase then he would have been great, but the second phase fucks with the camera so hard it's hard to see where the fucker is going at times since almost all of his leaps can break the lock on.

False King Allant stronk.
>>
>>324013554
I really wish they didn't make Maria so easy to stunlock. First time I fought I was using the reiterpallasch and I was just comboing her for most of the fight.
Also I wish her theme didn't devolve into generic chanting

>>324012135
It's the greatest boss fight in gaming history
>>
>>324013630
You complained that a boss was boring, to which I stated it's your choice of playstyle which is the boring, not the boss. Parrying is only 1 of dozens of possible ways you could kill him, and you just happened to choose the most boring, because it's no doubt the easiest.

Going man to man against Gehrman with nothing but dodging and melee is the most fun DMC tier shit in the whole game IMO. I honestly do not see the appeal of parrying to down bosses, it's so fucking boring, slow and monotonous it completely kills the experience.

The way I see it is, I COULD parry that boss, but I'm not going to because the playstyle is boring as fuck and not rewarding for me personally. If you feel rewarded by doing nothing but parrying in boss fights that's fine, but don't come here bitching about how a boss is 'boring' or 'easy' because you literally chose the easy mode, like magicfags in DaS.

>>324013789
Why not try and fight him without parrying? Honest question I'm not judging you, I'm honestly curious why you feel like you NEED to parry. Is it because you can't beat him without parrying? Again, not judging just genuinely curious. Beating him without parrying is satisfying as fuck.
>>
>>324014007
Again a player having to intentionally not use one of the core mechanics of the game for a fight to be interesting means its poorly balanced fight.
Why are you having so much trouble grasping this?

It's cool, but Ludwig is at least 15 times better and the best boss in a Souls game. Two phases that are totally different from each other, 1v1 fight not relying on multiple enemies to fuck you over, every attack is fair and has perfect hitbox, best music in the series, best lore in Bloodborne etc.

Ludwig is the Artorias and Orphan is Manus.

>>324014320
he's hard but not that hard 2bh
you just need to dodge around him and he'll bleed himself to death
before he was patched you could just run out after he used the bleed and he'd just kill himself

Also that fucking daunting design. How he's still almost coherent. How you can talk to him after you defeat him.

How half his face is still human, it's just perfect.

>core mechanics of the game
Yet a ton of builds don't use guns or viscerals for damage, or have to save those bullets for Tools, then there's 2H builds that don't use guns at all. Hell visceral damage is exclusive to SKILL builds, so it's fucking pointless on STR or BT and Arc because you'd do more damage just regularly comboing.

It's a completely optional playstyle. This is like claiming why aren't you an Arcane build for those instant backstabs off Augur, backstabs are a core mechanic of the game why gimp yourself baka!

I did it with Bloodletter pure BT build, fun as fuck and I literally couldn't parry because I couldn't risk the health loss of going in and out of BT mode just to parry, and the fact that I have no SKILL so I'd do like 500 damage, less than a fucking R1.

combat is fine, just slower than bloodborne. You get used to the graphics quickly and the game still has extremely strong level design until near the end. It's very playable still
>>
>>324014742
Agreed, but I honestly think they should have made it more difficult to stunlock her.

She'd be perfect, but I was able to beat her on my second try because 50 endurance + saw cleaver + fire paper.

2 combos ended her, and she deserved better than that.
>>
>>324015008
I wish Dark Souls 1 could have adopted DS2's speed and weapons variety.

It would be GOAT.
>>
>>324014626
But it does matter. You claimed that parrying was a mandatory mechanic, but it isn't

>only SKILL builds actually get visceral damage
>Arcane builds have to save bullets for their Tools and don't get visceral bonus
>2H STR builds get no visceral bonus so parrying is pointless for them
>full Bloodtinge also gets no visceral damage either
>certain weapons like Bloodletter are pretty much made to be strictly in 2H form

Therefore a mechanic's entire damage output being tied to ONE out of FOUR damage stats means you're wrong as fuck. It's only a core mechanic if you create your build AROUND it, via pumping Skill, otherwise it's useless for damage.

I've spent a lot of time trying to beat the orphan with my skill/BT reiterpallasche/bowblade build. I've came really close, but not enough. I know I could just sit back and cheese the fuck out of him with bowblade shots, but that just sounds really unsatisfying.

Similarly, I have a coworker that brags about his Souls pvp experiences, but by the sound of it, he just uses really cheesy, exploitative builds and strategies, even when he's underlevelled. Is that just what most people do, pvp or pve? Cheese or be cheesed? Am I just setting myself up for failure to feel legitimate, when nobody else but me is going to see or experience that kind of gratification?

I replayed DaS recently and stepped into PVP at Oolacile after a long hiatus and almost everyone was just some crown of dusk fag firing off dark spells and WotG everywhere. So yes, as far as PvP goes people will always create builds specifically for doing as much damage in the quickest amount of time, which makes perfect sense, but is really boring and predictable.
As for Orphan, I had the exact same setup as you and I beat him, so i so go for it.

Rakyou build at level ~50. I just brute forced him, somehow. It's possible. You should be able to parry the first phase easily. Second phase you just facetank his shit since you got through phase 1 without taking damage.
>>
>>324015279
>When did I claim it was mandatory?
You claimed it was a 'core mechanic' and that you HAD to use it.

You failed to realise that every build has a different core mechanic.

>skill build's core mechanic is visceral damage
>blootinge's core mechanic is gun/blood damage
>arcane's core mechanic is consumables/hunter tools utility and damage
>strength build's core mechanic is that their weapons get the best regain and hyper armour in the game
>AYYY mode's core mechanic is Kos Parasite combat and hunter's tools
>beast mode's core mechanic is Beast Pellet usage

So no, doing viscerals is not 'core' mechanic of the overall game, it's simply a core mechanic of SKILL builds specifically. That's only 1 out of 6 builds that uses parrying/viscerals for damage. You had to go out of your way to build your character around that just to cheese bosses with visceral damage. All 5 of those other builds get none.

Estus flaks are a core mechanic of the Souls games, you don't have to use them if you want an optional challenge, but saying that the games are hard because there is no healing is dumb.

In Dark II your movement is floaty and slightly faster, but rolling is slower, attack animations are generally slower, and stamina regenerates so much more slowly. Try to play Dark Souls at 60fps and you'll find it faster.

You said the boss was poorly design because everyone should use a 'core mechanic' to render it easy and by not doing so you're making it 'artificially' difficult.

You failed to understand that that core mechanic (visceral damage) is exclusive to ONE stat, and thus builds that don't invest in points in SKILL get nothing from viscerals.

Therefore it's an optional mechanic, and is in fact an actual detriment to DPS to use on Arcane, STR, Bloodtinge, Ayyy and Beast Mode builds, as they do far better DPS by avoiding parry bait viscerals since they don't get a damage bonus built into their stat.

Face it, you're wrong anon. You probably didn't even know visceral damage was exclusive to the Skill stat.

>>324020656
more hints nothing concrete

First off, the MP is in charge of reproduction. It dropping the blood red moon is what gives all of the other Great Ones the go-ahead to breed. It therefore stands to reason that having kids is it's sphere of influence.

Second, we know that Great Ones can cast curses on civilizations that displease them. The Loran and Defiled chalices, as well as the DLC, all corroborate this idea. We also know that the Pthumerian civilization of Loran (and it is Pthumerian, you can access it in the Old Labyrinth) was cursed and subsequently fell to Beasthood. We also know that Loran was cursed because they had unauthorized kids -- children and marriage were highly regulated during the time of Pthumeru, and only Great One - sanctioned unions were permitted (see the Ring of Betrothal).

The logical conjecture to make is that the people of Loran pissed off a Great One by having unauthorized children (bastards of Loran), and the Great One cursed them with Beasthood in response.

The most logical Great One to do so is the MP, since it's sphere is reproduction, and therefore out of all the Great Ones that we know about, it's the most obvious choice to get pissy about people not listening to it about when to breed.

Of course the DLC reveals that the specifics of this curse meant infecting the Old Blood with Vermin, and the blood-chugging Pthumerians went down in flames. Yharnam inherited the Curse when the Healing Church started handing out tainted blood from the Old Labyrinth without caring that it was infected with Vermin.

I have a theory (probably unoriginal and debunked) but the quote "When the red moon hangs low, the line between man and beast is blurred. And when the Great Ones descend, a womb will be blessed with child." seems like it could be talking about the three cords ending. With how low the moon is behind MP as he descends and then after you kill him the doll seems to treat you as her child.

I'm not so sure it;s the Wet Nurse generating the nightmare. She is by far the most mysterious Great One. We know very little about her. Her name implies a symbiotic relationship with Mergo however. Also, keep in mind that the nightmare slain message appears not when you kill the Wet Nurse but when the crib tips over and Mergo's crying ceases. There's a significant delay between when that Nightmare Slain texts appears and the Wet Nurse's death as compared to when you kill he Moon Precedence. The text appears almost immediately there. I suspect that Mergo is the true source of the nightmare but his stillborn status may have compromised his power. The Wet Nurse, as all great ones desire a child, cares for what's left of Mergo and sustains his life so he can maintain the nightmare.

>>324022903
while it's true that you only get NIGHTMARE SLAIN after Mergo stops crying, consider that you don't get an independent PREY SLAUGHTERED message for killing the Wet Nurse. In addition, you don't get your soul rewards until NIGHTMARE SLAIN pops up, either, so it's not like the Wet Nurse is dropping it's souls and then you see NIGHTMARE SLAIN. the issue of the souls dropping on the same delay as the victory message is what tips my belief in favor that it's the Wet Nurse that is generating the Nightmare.

imo what's happening is that you kill the Wet Nurse's body, but it tries to hang on even in spirit, until Mergo dies on account of a lack of life support. then the Wet Nurse lets go, and you get your Blood Echoes and NIGHTMARE SLAIN for your trouble. It's kind of like how killing the Orphan's body doesn't actually kill it, it lingers on as a spirit so long as it feels that it has business to do.

We're saying the same thing essentially. Killing he Wet Nurse is essentially killing Mergo because he is unable to survive on his own, hence the necessity for a "Wet Nurse". Once you kill her, Mergo dies shortly afterward and the nightmare is finally slain. I use the term die here loosely as I don't believe Great Ones truly die or at least they don't die n the same way the mortals do.

>>324023580
I had always thought that the Wet Nurse was setting up the Nightmare for Mergo to live in, as a part of it's life support duties.

Also, I think that the MP wanted the Hunter to kill the Wet Nurse, not Mergo (as is commonly believed). the MP is being beckoned by Mergo's crying, and wants to take Mergo as a surrogate child. the Wet Nurse stops it from doing this -- notice that the Moon in the Nightmare of Mensis isn't red, and logically it should be, considering that the MP is trying to get at it's lure (Mergo). We know from the DLC that the Great Ones that control Nightmares seem to have some limited control over the Moon in their own Nightmares (see the fucked-up Moon in the Hunter's Nightmare that appears only there, and disappears when you kill the Orphan's spirit). So IMO the Wet Nurse is blocking the Red Moon in the Nightmare to stop the MP from stealing it's baby. The MP wants the Wet Nurse dead because muh surrogate. Jokes on it, though, since Mergo dies when you kill the Wet Nurse.

>>
>>324024114
Exactly. It's intentional. The Wet Nurse isn't the progenitor if the nightmare, it's Mergo. He dies AFTER you kill the Wet Nurse which is why the message appears to "lag" when you kill her. The nightmare slain appears only when the crying, Mergo, stops.

>>324023987
I still think the MP wants you to kill Mergo specifically. The mission you are given explicitly states "slay the nightmare newborn." That is clearly referring to Mergo. The Moon Presence desires a surrogate, like all the other Great Ones, and Gherman fills that role as he is the host of the hunters dream. This is also why the MP embraces you lovingly, like a child, upon the defeat of Gherman. It is only when you start to become a great one yourself that th MP recoils in disgust and attacks you The MP seems to be threatened by other Great Ones and is territorial as well although only to a specific few for unknown reasons. Namely, Mergo and the hunter if he ascends.

Look at those goal posts go!
>>
>>324024525
You need to slay the Nightmare Newborn and end the Mensis ritual because the MP getting exited enough to drop the Bloodred Moon is causing the Scourge to go out of control. You aren't killing Mergo on the MP's orders, that's coincidental. You're killing Mergo because you want to save the town.

With respect to Gehrman, I don't think he was the surrogate child, basically because the MP doesn't seem very vengeful or angry when you kill him. It flipflops very abruptly from Gehrman to you for such a monumental commitment as a surrogate child. No hard feelings, right? I dunno. I always interpreted the relationship between Gehrman and the MP as one between an employee and his boss, as opposed to a foster child and his parent.

I'll rather blame popularity. When something gets popular memes happen and discussion quality drops. I have seen this shit on /a/ a lot. Des was not very popular and neither was Das at launch. Das got popular with time.

The reason why people memed about Das after the PC version was because the port was fucking unplayable until DSfix happened.

I get that some people only play for bragging rights, but did anyone actually have fun fighting Orphan? You just get your shit wrecked and die a lot until one time you don't. You don't feel excitement or awe, just frustration.

I think Artorias is still my favorite. I played a greatsword and pyromancy build in DaS1 and facing Arty felt like fighting an equal. Maria was pretty fun in BB for the same reason, it's fun when bosses have kind of the same fighting style as you.

BB arguable has the best OST of any of the Souls games in terms of overall quality. Gherman, Gascoigne, and Cleric Beast are all miracles of the universe, and Hail the Nightmare is God Tier atmosphere.

>>324031237
When you become the master of the situation and stop Orphan in his second form, from jumping around as you walk clockwise just beyond his weapon's reach, then you will know the feeling of a hunter about to outwit its prey.

And then when he starts slapping his weapon up and down and you simply jog under him and initiate a backstab... The joy of doing so is unparalleled.

The Wetnurse is not a great one.
The Nightmare starts upon entering Micolash's realm. Everything before that is real.
Micolash is the host in the same sense of a TV Show Host. He is not the source but a conducting tool. Believing another realm, Mergo will live and ascend them all. Mergo is the source of the Nightmare because he was meant to become a great one but died.
Similarly the Orphan is also the source of the Nightmare in TOH, as it was killed by hunters in the womb of mother kos, the conducting tool being the literal only unkillable NPC in the game. A reminder of what the hunter's did.
The DLC events are all a nightmarish variations of the true events.

The beasts literally have the skeleton dogs from tomb of the giants moveset
The villagers and normal soldiers from the chalices basically fight exactly like the undead
Logarius fought exactly like fake allant
All the BB dogs are exactly like the DaS hounds
If you want even mroe reskins then the doll is the maiden in black
The fat guys in armour are buchers move for move
The bloodletting beast is the last giant
Queen of Yharnam has a moveset very similar to that of Fools Idol
I'd argue the squids are similar to the bellringers from DeS to an extent

Less forgettable bosses.

It did reinforce my theory though. The lack of cutscenes for bosses made them feel samey and mediocre.

I can recall almost every boss from bloodborne and enjoyed each one for that very reason. Incidentally, I didn't really enjoy the ones that just popped up, like Amygdala and Cleric Beast.

>Dark Souls 2
>Masterpiece
There are way, way too many things wrong with Dark Souls 2 to call it tied with a masterpiece. For size and value it's astounding but it's so incoherent both physically and thematically. It feels like playing a community bake off of a souls game, where 30 dudes contributed different areas, bosses, and weapons.

Not the same guy, but you tend to perceive pictures in the same direction that you read, so left to right for most of us. When flipped, the focus seems to be much more on the Cainhurst woman than the executioners.

I'm sick of this meme. Kos wasn't even the best in his fucking DLC. Maria was legit one of the top 3 BB fights to me but since she wasn't a giant piece of shit that can delete everything in a 50x50 area she isn't good to you autists

Gwyn

Ornstein and Smough

Smelter Demon
Darklurker
Ivory King

Father Gascoigne
Gehrman

Haven't played the Bloodborne DLC yet.

This series has a lot of awesome bosses.

My personal favourite is Gwyn.

I don't know, BB ost is very good but I think dks1 one is better. I think BB ost is just too much "dark stuff" and lacks variety overall whereas dks1 managed to get a lot of differents style :

Gwyn is still my favorite:

>the atmosphere
>the backstory of his character
>the stage when you enter the room
>being able to parry his first big attack throws you right into the action
>your options after defeating him

When it comes to actual boss mechanics/videogame battles I guess Glass Knight from DaS2, just because he summons a dude out of his mirror shield and it can be another player if they invade. So cool.

He's been sitting there forever, knowing that whoever walks through that fog gate is there to kill him. So the first thing he does? Leap across the arena and try to one-shot you. But we get the opportunity to say NOT TODAY BUD
with a parry, then you go ham on each other.

My main problem with the BB ost is that you can barely fucking hear it in game. I literally can't remember one of the osts because the SPLLOTSSH sounds just sound out 90% of it

It could record like 30 seconds of sound and play it back. The buttons were just weird sound effects. I'm trying to find a recording of the scream that I'm talking about because I swear it sounds just like the Orphan.

Normies play Souls games to brag about how good they are.
For them beating the game once is a huge accomplishment.

>>324038438
Only played the first couple bosses, and watched a lot others. Seems like most "Big" bosses have various areas you can hit and "break" to put them into a stunned state where you can then wail on their head for bigger damage.

Humanoid vs humanoid fights looks sick though. Unless you snag them onto terrain and cheese that way.

Then he jumps up in the air and either randomly lands somewhere or throws instakill acid at you. You can't be sure which one it's going to be and you have to dodge differently depending on it. Second form is shit.

Yeah the big bosses are easily broke but the humanoids aren't flawless since most of them can be charged then parried in a pattern, especially Gehrman

>>324023559
I didn't get to play the network test, but Dancer certainly didn't look like a Demon's Souls boss to me. Did it have a puzzle element behind it or something?

It did look very interesting and seemed to move and attack in unique ways, which is already miles better than most of what we had in Dark Souls 2.

Are the trophies actual challenges or just completion? I remember Darks Souls achieves are literally just replaying the game and joining all the various covenants, choosing alternative options, etc. Nothing actually challenging/changing the game or your playing style.

It looks like its pretty easy to do in BB too. Just from playing normally I have most of them. The only ones I missing are like getting all of the weapons and tools and shit like that

>>324012784
Sir Alonne loses huge points for the completely bullshit runback to get to him. Fun fight, but not one I'd want to spend 5-10 minutes running back to every time. Besides, Fume Knight is better in every way.

Fume Knight > Gehrman > Artorias > False King Allant.

>>324039537
Completion IS the challenge.

But yeah it's baisically to get all the items, kill all the bosses and get all 3 endings.
>>
>>324039625
It's the same for Dark Souls games.
>>
>>324039537
They're mostly the same as in Dark Souls, but I doubt many people would have bothered with the last unique Chalice boss if it wasn't for the trophy.
>>
>>324039537
Same thing essentially, just completing stuff like getting all the tools, weapons, clearing chalices. But that shit is fine since I want to 100% these games and find everything anyways.

Also you can just upload your save to a USB and get all three endings.

>>324038352
