I tried the first attempts for this fight on Saturday, but I was tired and couldn’t find the focus to do well, so I ended the stream and pushed the fight to the beginning of Sunday’s stream.
I knew that the Sunday stream would be my last Dark Souls stream before starting a Dark Souls 3 playthrough and I was emotional before going live. You can still hear me sniffing from that in this video. As soon as I went live, I dove right into the fight again, knowing that it would allow me to get a grip on my emotions and draw my focus to the game.
The fight itself was really not all that hard. I just had to pay attention to him telegraphing his next move and acting appropriately to it. Once I figured out that the crossbow bolts basically go in a straight line and that I didn’t need to hide from them, I was only left with the other two types of attack. Bridging the gap to hit him was easier then and five hits later he was dead and I could move on to the final fight of the game.
