The Titanite Demon has shuffled off his immortal coil–and I helped him shuffle. Muwhahaha.
And how did I kill the Titanite Demon?
Well, I killed him with exactly 124 wooden arrows. When I landed my first arrow it did barely any damage and I thought to myself, “Self, wouldn’t it be horrid to waste all my 124 of my arrows on this guy and not actually kill him?” So 123 arrows later I notched my final arrow… praised the sun in my mind and collected a boat load of souls!
Quick tip on the Titanite Demon, he’s actually really easy to kill. When you enter the room move down the slope and slightly to the left. At range he attacks with a lightning bolt, so position yourself so that his lightning bolt strikes the broken pillar just in front of him then notch your 124 arrows, grab a drink and spam the left bumper.
Aside from that triumph I really just did a lot of milling about. I killed the large purple dragon in the Valley of the Drakes and harvested a dragon scale from him… when I’m disciplined enough to hold onto 10,000 souls I’ll upgrade my Drake Sword with it. I got my first look at the Capra Demon, though it was in phantom form. Jim and I were trying to get into one another’s game but the stars weren’t aligned for us. So I wound up being pulled into another players game and we rolled over the Capra Demon. From what everyone else who has fought him says, I should relish this victory. Apparently Capra will kick my ass for a while.
I fought the Gargoyles and got pounded, I think my new rule of thumb will be to tackle bosses as a phantom a few times before I try to do them myself.
Walking Dead Season Premier was on tonight so there was no gaming for me this evening, expect my next Dark Soul Diary Tuesday. I’m dedicating my next game session to beating the Gargoyles so it’s time to play odds maker. Given that I’ve faced them once already how many times will I have to face them Monday in order to beat them:
1–5 Times: “I believe in Mr. Jack!”
6-10 Times: “You’re old so you know how to handle a proper boss fight.”
11-15 Times: “Eventually, the Gargoyles will just feel sorry for you.”
Never: “Maybe in 15 years Baby Indy can show you how to game.”
