They did this fantastic boss dirty by adding the mandatory fight against 20 or so Charred Loyce Knights before the boss. Now, the knights are somewhat ok when playing as a heavy build, but absolutely nightmarish as any type of magic user, as they have such high resistances to everything that you kinda have to use a big bulk of your stock before the actual fight even begins. As a boss, BIK is really fun and fair, and I'd love for this to have been designed so that after the first time you fight the charred boys, you can jump straight away into the boss fight on the next try. As it is now, it's just such a shame, another victim of DS2's horsesh-t design philosophy of creating challenge by flooding the place with enemies.
