How the fuck are you supposed to fight the boss in LoR? Jesus wept! 

 

  Reveal hidden contents

I've beaten a couple of Dragonkin Soldiers but I'm almost out of everything by the time I get to him.

 

I've found 4 pillars with buttons and they've raised some platforms but they're no use to me? Wearing highest Rot resistance gear, using the Immunizing Horn Charm and Flame, Cleanse Me spell but the Rot is still murdering me

 

 

My fully upgraded mimic helped, without him I don't know how I'd do it. I'm a katana dex build with blood grease equipped so both of us with blood soaked katanas made short work of him.

Dunno man my Mimic just soloed Morgott...

My Mimic basically soled Malenia! Mimics are still by far the most powerful tool in the game if you kit them up right. They don't feel nerfed at all.

Eg lets say you are a caster. Your weak point is you prob don't have the END to wear insanely heavy armour for the poise you need to get off some of your longer casting spells so therefore your mimic can get interrupted too if you try and get them to cast a boss.

 

You can get around this by wearing the heaviest poise boosting armour possible (Eg the bull/goat one whatever it is), plus the poise talisman, load into the fight wearing this fat roll combo with no weapon and just your casting tool (along with only spells you want your mimic to spam), call your mimic and then when you've done this, go into the menu and un-equp enough armour to get to medium load and re-equip your weapon. Doing this means your mimic will be a fucking tank exclusively casting your heaviest hitting spells which can't get interrupted as much while you can still be agile.

Think I might give up on the trophies. I’ve done everything needed for the third ending, but I’m just not getting anywhere near killing the final boss. Finally summoned after 60ish attempts earlier and got someone shite who died immediately, leaving me with a boss with more HP who I couldn’t use spirit summons for. 
 

I’ve used all my larval tears respeccing, but DEX, STR and INT are all failing. The INT build I picked with the last one is so shit I can’t even get through the first phase anymore. Feels like the only choice would be to level up a bunch, and I can’t really be arsed to grind for runes and don’t have much else left to do. The few bosses I have left are crushing me, and I need 100k runes to level up, which isn’t an easy amount to come by quickly. I think I might just forget about the plat and go back to cyberpunk. Really sours the whole thing having a final boss that bad.

 

 

No but they nerfed all the stuff that made it easier. Mimic is weak and useless now, and Hoarfrost is crap. I don’t have that prawn thing you used or any of the things you use to cast incantations or any faith talismans or the one that reduces holy damage. It’s boring just fighting the same thing over and over without even improving. 

 

My breakthrough with the last boss came with me duel weilding giant crusher hammer and the big red hammer with maxed out stats. Jump at him and press L1 smashes both hammers down. Got the talisman to increase jumping attacks and used bloodhound dash. Bloodhound dash was the key. I could get in close much faster and dodge attacks at the same time. 

 

Took me 2 attempts. When I was using frost stomp I failed at least 50 times.

As for pest threads:

 

  Reveal hidden contents

Kill Gowry in his shack just south of sellia village and give his bell bearing to the twins. They then sell pest threads for 7500 souls. 
 

My build for killing the last boss was 60 faith, an erdtree’s favour +10, blasphemous blade +10 and then whatever armour had the highest holy negation. 

 

When I try it..

 

Spoiler

He says, "we shall meet again, as many times as it takes" and just respawns the next time I warp in. No ball bearing to be seen. Suspect you have to be further along in the quest line

PS5. I can’t get the bird to work, what do I need to do to get it to run off the edge? 
 

I’m sure I’ll be trying out other builds later :lol:

 

Sometimes the bird just balances on the edge and returns back to normal. Seems to happen quite often.

Slaughter a few of the sleeping guys then try again, or just re-rest to reset it.

 

I find rot breath works a treat to take out large groups of the little tubby chaps. Need to finish them off with sword after though.

Hmm. I just had her help killing a miniboss in a sickly, poisoned village but she vanished afterward.

Found that rune farm folks were talking about - but the Slitherin there are super powerful and I can't beat them.  So I had to nope out.

 

In other news, also noped out of Rahdan.  Can consistently get him to half health and then he just one shots me with some super unavoidable strike from the sky or something and it's absolutely zero fun.

Have you tried riding away from it? Seriously, a lot of people seem to try Radahn on foot, but at least for the meteor thing, ride Torrent for a bit.

you should be able to avoid his meteor landing but if not you could put the bubble shield on your physik flash and use it when he goes to phase 2 so even if it hits you'll survive.

 

ah - yeah, I could try that

ha! never thought to use Torrent... might help with the bolts at the beginning.  I'm a bit of a fat roller with the sword, but with the claws I have a super fast dodge.  I'll give that a try RIGHT NOW (I mean lunch time... ahem)

Pre-patch you couldn't really dodge his purple starting arrows on torrent but that seems easily doable now. If not try rolling into them instead of too the side. Might take a few goes to get the timing down.

The hardest part of that bit is turning and running away while cackling and trying to keep the camera pointed at him because it looks so fricking cool. When I did it most of his attacks could oneshot me, so I focused on dodging and not getting hit. I managed to kill him the same time he killed me THREE times, on the third time I finally got the reward!

Trying to decide if I should risk freeing

 

Spoiler

The Dung Eater. I was all set to open the door when I finally found him, then bottled it.

 

Seems familiar...

I almost defeated the first boss a few times last night, but I've submitted to the idea that I need to just wallow in the summoning pool for a while, learning the patterns and when I can counter/ shield stun him for massive damage.

Just tried to jump on for a cheeky bash while waiting for a work brief.

PS5 updated, controllers updated then Elden ring updated.

 

Logging into the game now gives 'cannot verify PS+ subscription' error and can only play offline. Splendid!

I like fighting the Vulgar Militia (or Little Bastards as I call them), their backstab animation where my dude drives his sword right through the top of their head always makes me chuckle.

 

Ranni's sorcerer guy Seluvis (Ranni questline / Caria Manor spoilers)

Spoiler

appears to have been turning people into sex-puppets for some creepy dude in the manor but they seem to have rebelled and killed the both of them. 'mon the sex-puppets!

 

 

Anyone know where the dragons are fucking off to? that's 2 of them now have left the places they were hanging around before I got the chance to top them.

I'm hoping that I'll smash through Radahn when I eventually meet him, as I've done the entire Capital first. Left it last night at what is surely an optional boss, given the insanely tense and convoluted route to get to him:

 

Spoiler

Mogh, the Omen

 

I've levelled up an absolute tonne doing this entire area, so I'm hoping I'm finally ready for Caelid...

I did the same and Radhan eat sword on my second go. You'll batter him.
