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


I unfortunately did not free Siegward before fighting Yhorm, so I was facing this Lord of Cinder by myself.

I first went in with my sharp Scythe +7, with which I did a grand total of 71 damage per hit. I did quickly figure out that you can target different body parts, so for a brief moment I thought it might be a good idea to shoot him in the face. Around that time the chat predicted a long night!

Luckily I found Stormruler during my second attempt and by reading the lore in its flavour text, I managed to figure out how to use it before going in a third time. Finally the fourth attempt resulted in Yhorm’s death and me being whisked away by Emma, as shown in this video.
