Spoiler

I did not deserve to win this fight at my first attempt, but I am glad I got as lucky as I did with it! At no point in the fight was I in control. It was just chaos all around, which kind of seems appropriate for Nito.

I had gathered my bravery before going into the fog gate and was sort of taken aback from not being confronted with the fight immediately. I saw the messages and attempted to roll into them so I could read what they said, but failed, launching me right into the cutscene. I’m still curious what they say and how they got there!

Throughout the catacombs I had been using the lack of souls as a way to measure whether or not a skeleton would come back alive, so when you hear me referring to that in the video, I’m implying that they aren’t really permanently dead. Had I have had to make several attempts on this fight, I would have probably figured out that using a divine weapon could be helpful.

However, the fight completely overwhelmed me on this first (and final) attempt, causing me to panic and make bad decisions such as rolling several times in a row with heavy armour. From a roleplaying perspective, I think I behaved exactly as Nito would have wanted me to. His adds kept drawing my attention away from him and they did enough damage to me so that I was forced to take time to heal rather than hurt him.

At many points in the fight did I think I wasn’t going to make it and looking back on it now, I probably shouldn’t have.
