This jerkass killed me a thousand times over, I swear >_<

This guy. I didn't actually die to him the first time I fought him (at the actual fog-gate encounter), my friend killed me with the ballista because he "wanted to see a fence-post-sized stake in someone's face". In fact that happened to me a lot. /cry

fantastic arts <3

I liked fighting him. I ran from his first encounter when he swoops down like he owns the place (which is why I ran off in the first place) and totally missed his actual fog gate/boss fight until I had to go to his place.

My first fight with him was in the Iron Keep, where I just so happened to head back to get some loot I skipped and there he was. I died a lot, but I kept fighting till I beat him. lol

I still want the armor... WHY IS THERE NO PURSUER ARMOR?!
karniz's avatar
I believe that's one of the biggest complaints. And it's such a nice set too!
Maybe that just adds to the lure of it all... hehehe.

I remember this shithead. When I first enter the fog and saw him drop from his eagle I was the hell?. The. He became super saiyan and started floating which led me to started saying nope nope nope nope. After that he bitch slapped me with his sword one lit be cause I took the champion covenant 
karniz's avatar
He does that because he loves you, you know that?
TheFoxtrot813's avatar
And one more thing. My Mushroom covenant is not there. FROM SOFT. Y u no GIVE MUSHROOM COVENANT
Ikoter's avatar
Oh, hey. How are you? Is ds2 proving enough of a challenge for you?
karniz's avatar
No, not really?
Definitely the easiest of the Souls series.
[Beat it sometime back in May.]
Ikoter's avatar
Tottaly agree with you.

Good things that champion covenant exists right?

I love the Pursuer.  I like to think of him as the player character's hot-blooded rival, since he's always showing up for another duel.

Due to the game's signature minimalism you don't hear the witty swashbuckling banter between the two of you, but they are so totally doing that.
IceBen4444's avatar
He even has an evil twin. Bad thing the original is evil as well, so you have to fight both :P
karniz's avatar
I do agree, too. XD;;
oh yes, the banter is hidden behind stabbing you with the soul-eating version of his great sword!
