    @Bichii I didnít know it was a boss to be fair :)

    When I played it years ago none of the npc summons where there so Iíve summoned a few to have a look at them

    Normally I die once before the boss but this time I didnít and ended up taking one in with me

    I do feel less of a person to be honest :(

    That is such a classic boss as well, assuming it was Ludwig, that all you did is RUIN the experience for you! :)

    Oh well, seems like Iíve ballsed that up then

    The npc didnít really do much but they were an excellent distraction

    Iíve picked up loads of weapons Iíve never used before now, just need to decide which one to max out

    If you are strength them wirlygig saw! Bloodtinge weapons come up soon that are amazing. Pretty much all the dlc weapons are great. Dex/strength the church pick.

    Yeah Iím on 50 strength so Iíll have to give it a go. Iíve built this character to be pretty powerful but I can barely take a hit

    Even then the hardest part of the game was the first 4 hours which are brutal

    The Whirligig is *ridiculous* on a strength build. Every time I have another play through I start with strength, pick that up and then reroll to what I was originally thinking about. It's that much fun.

    Beat the watchdog in the defiled cursed dungeon last night, easily one of my favourite bosses.

    Also, fun story...I was on the dungeon select menu, dropped my controller, and it fell in such a way that it REMOVED the defiled chalice...and I had to do it all over again ahahaha!!

    @OllyJ Nice one. It is a good fight tbh. Not much room for error, but good fun nontheless.

    Ha, weird. Even your console doesn't want to do that dungeon.

    yeah, i couldn't quite figure out what had happened. I had just shared the fight video, went back out to spend by echoes and when I was selecting my chalice layer tragedy struck.

    Saying that, 2nd time round I beat hime first go, actually died more times to the boss before.

    I'm really looking forward to the remaster of this being a PS6 launch title.

    Which version? The nightmare frontier one or the chalice dungeon?

    Lmao I think I'd snap the controller in two if that happened. I 💯'd BB but it was a proper struggle .I'm shit at games, just persevered. Some bosses at the bottom of the chalice dungeons took ridiculous numbers of tries. Embarassing numbers

    Defiled Chalice, went in with some mates last night and beat her, it's such a waiting game looking for openings.

    Quickly, and suprisingly dispatched the abhorrent beast to get red jelly for the next chalice layer towards the trophy.

    On to the next layer of the Pthumerian dungeon and now faced with Pthumerian Elder...

    Pthumerian is a joke compared to Defiled. Kudos for storming through it but I'm bitterly disappointed at the same time. I was looking forward to a big salty rant about it.

    I honestly didn't mind it, the first bosses was just parry to death, the watchdog is tough but again it's just about openings and avoiding the charge attack.

    Amygdala was grim, and I was glad for the help!

    I did a couple of chalices yesterday even though I said I wasn't going to. Despite the fact that I did them all originally I still have no idea what the process and order is

    Is it possible to accidentally create one you've already completed? How do you decide which to do next? It's all very strange

    There's plenty of guides to tell you the order, as it's all very much hidden mechanics.

    You should only have one to begin, then just go though that until all of a sudden you need some ritual material you have not got, then figure out where to farm/acquire it.

    Bloodletting beast (ft. maggot head) down! The old hang around the legs trick worked wonders there.

    Did the next boss in the DLC, a very easy one. Iíd gone in with hardly any vials as Iíd been clearing the level but didnít need them

    Thatís both bosses down first attempt, albeit with an asterisk next to the first one

    @Bichii :) just did Lady Maria (?) first attempt too, would have liked to have done that one a few times though - seemed a very cool fight

    And then in the next area I walk straight off the edge into a watery grave and die instantly, sums Soulsborne up perfectly those last 5 minutes

    Retro is one of those people.

    Oh I'm not good at the game, I'm not showing off, I really struggle. It's such a hard game but I just beat every really hard boss first time. Yeah it's so tough, hard game, I really struggle so hard. First time.
    Yeah tough tough game, so tough. Oh I did lady Maria first time.

    He is the trump of gaming.
