Not a hard boss by any stretch, but by far the one I was most entertained by in the whole of Dark Souls II, by virtue of being the closest thing this series has ever had to purely intentional comedy.

- Spooky Scary Skeletons in Spooky Skeleton Lifeguard Chairs?  CHECK
- MORE Spooky Scary Skeletons that show up as the fight progresses? CHECK
- Music that sounds like something out of Nightmare Before Christmas? OH, CHECK
- Hysterical psych-out for Souls veterans when the GREATEST ENEMIES EVER (wheel skellies) show up? CHECK, CHECK, CHECK

Well played, FROMsoft. I was grinning as I stepped away from the fog gate, and genuinely laughing out loud as things came to a close.

Tried to kill them all at once...

... Ends up getting gangbanged by the skeletons (god the bonewheel) they summoned when they die.

I still think the bonewheel skeletons are much more scarier than these guys.

Awesome! Looks intimidating but I wonder if it will be harder than Dark Lord Nito.

karniz Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Absolutely not.
This is probably one of the easiest bosses in the entire series.
[then again, nothing in Dark Souls II was really difficult to me...]

What about the Rat Vanguard the 'boss' in the Grave of saints?

Some fights I consider 'gimmick' fights...
With the Rat King Authority, as long as you stayed under him you were safe.
Plus, as my hexxer, I was easily doing 300~600 damage per hit.
He was gone in less than a minute.

My only problem with the Rat King Authority were the four rats, it's not that they were difficult to kill it's just they distract me and cause poison, but yeah he's basically as easy as Sif just stay under him.

<-- caster.
I pew pew kill all four before the Authority even had a chance to get to me. Hehe.

I heard this game had the hardest boss out of all the games (Considering Dark Souls and Demons Souls).
So far I only find annoying that fat cyclops. It's quite resistant.

They're weak to piercing attacks. And magic... XD;;
[I only ever play casters in the souls series.]

Hmm... I wonder which is the hardest boss you speak of?
Oh, nevermind. I know which one.
[and it's a completely optional boss.]
the link isn't really a spoiler.

I play with a merge of magic and moonlight sword though this time getting that sword will take me a while.

Harder than Kalamith? Because that dragon was quite annoying if you use heavy but slow attacks or when you try to cut it's tail.

karniz Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Kalameet isn't that difficult unless you're hunting it's tail. XD;;
It leaves itself quite open during attacks. Even as a caster it wasn't a struggle to take down.

Sadly yes, the Ancient Dragon is probably the most difficult, but only because it has a gimmicky fire attack...
[I don't like to count bosses with gimmicks... like Vendrick with his insanely high HP and resist.]

The Ancient Dragon felt less like a boss intended to present a good challenge and more like 1. vengeance against those who attacked a similarly non-hostile dragon person in DS1 by 2. being basically all the "fairness" of the Hellkite Drake but with something like an actual boss arena.

I saw many players suffer with kalameet and Artorias, mainly because they had a heavy build and couldn't roll. XD

This is much more intimidating than the actual fight. Good work, but you left out the real boss: the horde of bonewheel skeletons. :la:

Hehe, oh, dont' worry... I intended on doing that!
Unfortunately the focus of these drawings are primarily the bosses themselves rather than the other things you encounter...
[I'll have to do a proper illustration at another time showcasing the lovely bonewheel skellies... hehehe.]
