That moment when you roll under the spikes three times in a SO satisfiying.

When I found out you can roll under the spikes... Well, the fight changed a bit. > : )

I accidentally ran into him as the first boss I found in that area, not the second. It was quite the surprise to have to deal with him early in the game.

That being said, it's amusing that the actual chariot is the boss, not the scary dude on top. What you drew is what I saw, then the second phase happened. =P

I found this guy out before the Skeleton Lords boss too. XD;;
[Apparently you can fight the guy. I just haven't looked it up/figured it out?]

Same here xD It took me awhile to get past all the idiots blocking the path, I have one life geme, A summon too...But i walked in saw it was him and i was like ". ___________________________________ ." I ran around at the starting area ready to fight *Thinking it was a boss you had to fight face to face...* He came, But i noted he hurt the guy i summoned, I couldn't get to a hole and tried to run behind me, Two seconds into running i fell to my death xD

Awesomely done as always.

On a side note, this boss is a pain in the ass to kill. He kept hitting me in the supposedly safe alcoves as he drove by, and the little necromancers & skeletons swarm you.

That's actually a bug with one of the newest patch releases.
When I was playing the game upon initial release I had no issues hiding in the alcoves...
But later on when helping a friend we were having issues getting hit n' such.
Therefore I can only narrow it down to that! XD;;

I didn't get to the Executioner's Chariot until a while after initial release because my buddies kept pulling me away to play with them on something else or help them in parts of both DS1 and DS2. XD

Shitttt I remember this guy. At first I was like what the fuck is this. Enter chariot coming dunno what to do. Gets run over while being surrounded by skeletons
YgvantheShaper's avatar
..........Fuck this guy!

I remember when this was supposedly going to be the thing that hunted down Sinners. I really wish that they stuck to that, you know how scary that'd be if this guy rode into your part of the game if you sinned? I bet there'd be a whole lot less Black Phantoms running about.

He wouldn't be very effective in some areas, though.
Vile21XX's avatar
Well with their original idea I think he would have been the size of a normal human player just like the Black Phantom Executioner you fight at Heide's Tower of Flame before you fight the Dragonrider. I'm guessing he'd chase you down on his chariot using his Lance and if you got into an area where he couldn't fit his chariot he'd probably dismount it and use his Lance as well as his Crossbow. But yea, he probably would be horrible in Aldia's Keep, The Warf, and a few others - guessing those would be left to the Arbiter Spirits.
