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


The run to this boss was almost as fun as the fight itself. I managed to find a way in which I only paused to heal up after taking some fall damage right before the fog gate.

I was better prepared for this fight than I was for Iudex Gundyr, because I’d already experienced the brutal wake up call that put me in my place. My expectations were a lot more realistic this time around!

The fight itself was pretty straight forward and intuitive. I quickly figured out that staying underneath him would minimize the damage I take and after a few failed attempts I also recognized the second phase pretty easily. After that it was just a matter of hack, slash and roll, so a typical souls game experience.

I almost died a few times and I got greedy in the end, so maybe I didn’t really deserve the win, but it worked out in my favour for once! All in all I enjoyed the fight well enough and I was proud of myself after beating Vordt.
