B team thought that adding more copypasted bosses at the same time and raising the difficulty to frustrate 80% of people was what made the Souls serie good. Souls was never about "le hardcore game" but more about finding the perfect balance between reward and frustration. Demon's Souls also innovated with a multiplayer mode never seen before.

Now I hope A team doesn't fuck up DS3.

It's lazy as fuck, but the boss fight is actually fun though. It's all about properly kiting them and the area they give you is big enough and has enough that you can do this properly.

Gank Squad > Cool Ranch Smelter > 2cat

No one thinks your cool if you don't use summons. There's no need to rag on people who like to use the game mechanic.

Every boss has a fuckton of summon signs.

Only the Smelter Demon should ever give you trouble, due to having no signs whatsoever, unless you keep Lucatiel around.

The whole evolution aspect of that fight was really cool and got intense.

That being said I beat both bosses on 2 tries, they weren't so hard if you learned how to be patient and wait for your time to strike.

This is the only boss fight in all the souls games or bloodborne that I summoned for, just used the npc summons. I feel unclean.
2cat was easier alone anyway because the hp bonus they get from coop is too much health.

>>324148215

For all the shit people bitch about relating DS2, the only thing that kills it for me is how inferior the art direction and level design is.

Its weird because it manages to look worse than DeS and DaS despite being technically superior

Aside from not having upgraded the Estus, and from losing an absurd amont of time trying to go through the catacombos with a +6 Uchigatana, I'm having fun.

I've just started Blightown which people seem to think is horrible.
Curringlty in level 33, with focus on Dex, Vit, End and some Str

Also, it took me this long to realize what Kindling bonfires do.

I feel like a retard for using a DEX build while also using the parrying dagger, since a single enemy hit fucks me up immensily, but fuck it. I'll see what I can do.
>>
>>324148215
It's honestly just tedious, unless your parry game is stronk, you're running in circle like an idiot during the whole fight.

That Havel rip-off is a threat even alone though, handling that dragon's tooth like it's a toothpick and shit.

second half feels lazy most of the time but the dlc is some of the best souls maps in the series
>>
>>324156473
Not too bad anon, I've seen much worse. Beating Capra first try makes up for the other shit. Dex master race.

>Aside from not having upgraded the Estus
There are several other firekeeper souls around if you explore. It's not a huge deal to miss one.

>I feel like a retard for using a DEX build while also using the parrying dagger, since a single enemy hit fucks me up immensily, but fuck it.
If you actually managed to easily parry both black knights in the burg on your first playthrough then you could probably pull this off. Shields are better though, even the ones without parry bonuses, because you have another means to defend yourself.

>Curringlty in level 33, with focus on Dex, Vit, End and some Str
I won't bother giving advice because it ruins the first time experience but I'll say at least that these are good choices for stats.

Mainly shitty hitboxes but he also has a 5 hit combo that will fuck people with low stamina up.

Most boss in any DaS1 game turns piss easy once you summon someone, simply because the bosses are designed against one player so when two of them arrive it's easy to switch aggro.

I wonder if DaS3 will make boss react more to groups, with special move that can focus on more than one person.

Same applies to DS2, Raimes thrusting attacks have always been strange, like the changed his sword hand last minute but forgot to actually move the hitboxes, dodging you right and you never take damage, roll to your left and you almost always eat shit.

>>324148215
Yeah the second game had some great DLC but it's curious that all three DLC areas each had one particularly shitty, reskinned boss. It's like they finished the areas up but realized that they needed to up the boss count to meet some sort of weird quota, so instead of putting effort into make more bosses they put three random NPCs, a Cool Ranch Smelter Demon, and two versions of a boss fought earlier in the same expansion.

It really takes away from the trilogy for me because you can tell a lot of thought and effort went into them for the most part. The level design was great in all three, the bosses that were good were some of the best in the game. But looking at the choices made for the "extra" bosses, I can't help but realize that the same kind of thinking that dragged the base game down so much lower than its predecessor was still ever-present in one form or another.

You're right. It's behind a locked door which you can only get around by dropping onto the correct ledge and fighting through more spiders and mages. Also, if you miss the ledge in anyway, the only way to get back to it is to homeward bone back to the chapel bonfire, unless you summoned someone, in which case you'd have to either desummon them and bone back or just finish the level and get to it later.

You don't see the issue in an enemy having a specific gimmick that is supposed to shake things up for veterans of the series, but ends up being completely pointless because the AI ignores its own gimmick just to spin around on its feet to attack you anyway?

It's so shockingly simple, which is why it confuses me to such a degree. How did anyone look at that and not instantly think that it should be fixed? Did it not even occur to them or did they just not care? I can't tell which is worse.

Shadows is this fight done correctly, though. Using hit-and-run tactics and smart dodging while multitasking and using the terrain correctly in order to nullify the long-range fighter. There should only be one fighter directly confronting you if your spacing is correct because they occupy three different ranges, short, medium, and long.

As opposed to this fight in DaS2 which pretty much requires you to keep looping around like a retard and backstabbing, because two of the enemies are right in your face and the third stands all the way in the back of the room shooting endlessly at you. Oh, and because the enemies are actual NPCs they can reset their animations, have infinite stamina, and can backstab you, as opposed the Shadows who are humanoid enemies but aren't hunters.

There are plenty of bosses in these games that become normal enemies later on. The shadows were unique enemies that had multiple phases. The one in the OP is just copy pasted NPCs. It's not bullshit. You're just bad.

But the terrain usage in BB is better, because it's just a simple obstacle that briefly prevents the long-range Shadow from being a threat, at least until you have to move out from behind it.

The DaS2 cave is pretty much specifically designed so you can get the two close-range NPCs to follow you down and get an easy backstab while you're out of the long-range NPC's sight, then loop around and repeat once the second one is in position to fuck you up. It's sloppy, and what's worse is that it really seems like that's the intended way to fight them. You don't HAVE to use the rock to nullify the long-range Shadow. You can go after him first and take him down pretty quickly since he has the lowest health. It'll just be more difficult because A) the second phase will trigger faster and B) the sword-wielding Shadow will be right in your face, meaning you have to dodge very carefully.

Also you can just as easily just stay out of the long-range Shadow's max range while you fight the other two, something you can't do with the greatbow-wielding NPC in this fight.

They give you 2 ledges (not to the water, from the entrance), three narrow walkways and a pillar. You should have no problem at all kiting these guys around and picking them off one by one.

It's not a hard fight at all. Cheesing it is just pathetic.
>>
>>324166284
That's what Demon's, DaSm and Bloodborne all do best. Even in DaS2 these are the best fights.

Why do you think some of the best fights are against single, humanoid enemies, and some of the most memorable fights are ones that subvert this, like the Maneaters or O&S? Why do you think some of the shittiest fights in the series are against bosses with additional enemies in the room like Capra Demon?

It's why fights like Alonne and Fume are infinitely more memorable than something like Freja or Ruin Sentinels. DaS2 even did something clever with the Ivory King by having you bring in your own enemies to fight the enemies that spawn with the boss.

Are you retarded? The room is LITERALLY DESIGNED for that.

You're meant to do hit and run tactics, run around the room and use the environment to 1v1 them, then run away when the other two catch up.

Doesn't anybody realise that the bonus areas are meant to be stupid and difficult? They outright said they're more challenging, and designed around having summons.
It's kind of lame they reused bosses, but it's designed to be a separate challenge. It's why you're never required to go to those places, let alone fight the bosses.
>>
>>324167687
>Because it isn't

But it is. That's forcing the player to adapt to a situation and that's all. No one said a thing when they did that in DaS btw.

Backstepping in DaS2 has iframes. They appear a bit after you start the backstep, so you have to start the backstep a bit before the enemy attacks, like parrying in DaS2.

>>
>>324168535
>That's forcing the player to adapt to a situation and that's all

But it's still shitty design. Forcing the player to adapt to a terribly-designed situation doesn't make the design any better.

>No one said a thing when they did that in DaS btw

You never fight NPCs as a boss in DaS. You're also never forced to kite a boss around a room like a retard in DaS.

>You would have complained if every boss was a big dragon/knight anyway. Variation is good, you are just grasping at straws at this point.

Yes, variation is good, but the variation should be stuff that is actually well-designed, like the Ivory King fight. Being forced to constantly make the same loop around the room and cheese a lazily designed boss over and over isn't well-designed, and its the worst kind of variation possible. The fight takes place at the end of a completely optional area, and just like with the other two DLCs, the fight is god-awful and anyone with a brain can tell it was designed in ten minutes.

Seriously, why are you defending the shittiest boss in the entire game? It's unnecessary. No one defends Capra Demon, you don't have to defend this, either. You can like a game and still criticize it when it does dumb bullshit.
>>
>>324167620
No, it means that the "shockwaves" are caused by having low AGL/ADP. Raising that stat will fix it, although it shouldn't be an issue in the first place

The problem is not that they're too hard, the problem is that they're too lazy.

>>324168532
I actually thought that the ancient dragon, the optional boss. Was the hardest one in the game.
He has shitloads of health and his firebreath will always hit you if you dont immediatly start running a second before he even goes airborne.
Also his damage is insane if you do actually get hit.

>>324169191
They're all good, but Old Iron King was the best, with Ivory King coming a very close second. Old Iron King has the two best bosses in the game, although Ivory King has the most atmospheric boss, especially if you've played DaS1.
Sunken King is good, but one of the bosses is garbage. The final boss is good, though. Better than any of the vanilla bosses at least
>>
>>324169597
>>what is O&S

A boss fight that doesn't require any kiting whatsoever? As long as your spacing and dodging is fine you're good.

You're not forced but the fight is designed around kiting. People have literally defended the fight by saying so earlier in the thread. Kiting should always been an option, not the intended solution. That's bad fucking design any way you slice it.
