You can read my thoughts about the fight in the ‘spoiler’ section below:


These guys, this fight, it scared me from long before I ever started my playthrough. In fact, it was one of the main reasons I was intimidated and afraid to start playing Dark Souls at all. I dreaded this part of the game more than anything, even more than the Great Grey Wolf Sif fight. So when I defeated them in four attempts, I kind of felt a bit deflated.

Apparently I was way overpowered by the time I got to them, being level 72 already and wielding a +10 Black Knight Halberd. I have mixed feelings about that now, because I’m happy that I didn’t get stuck on this fight for about a week (as I was expecting beforehand), but I’m a bit disappointed that I didn’t get to experience the learning curve of this boss fight. Maybe I’m just ‘gitting gud’ after all.

The editing of this video was done mostly live on stream. I decided to include all of my attempts in a bit of a montage, I hope you enjoy the end result!

This was broadcast on 7 July, 2018.
