Worst boss in souls series, in my opinion. (All ringed city bosses are a massive letdown, except Gael, that one was epic.) His attacks hit all over the place, ( Very inconsistent. I died to his bite attack numerous times, while his head was nowhere near me.) At 27 Vig softcapped most of his attacks take about 50% hp each, not to mention the dark laser attack is pretty much one hit kill even with dark stoneplate ring equipped. (Sometimes he does his 2nd phase attacks right from the get go, dunno if that is intentional or just oversight.) The camera can be a bit wonky in places, altough it is not much of a problem. (Finally dragon boss with decent camera, Yay!) Overall, it looks like From went full * with this one though. The fight boils down to running around or dodging his attacks for half a minute, praying that you dont make a single mistake or he one shoots you and when you finally get close to his head you can land ONE attack, then back again at running. (I used Artorias GS, and trying to hit him even twice with light attack is very dangerous as he usually hits you during the second attack.) Chipping away at his massive hp pool for half an hour or more is no fun, just a stupid chore. Overall, unless you really want his soul for transposition and the slab from shira, dont bother. Sinh and Calameet were both executed much better. This is the only boss for me that really felt like it was fake difficulty.
