I used a bonfire ascetic on Sinner's Rise to make it level 2, and the pyromancers did spawn. Also I was playing SOTFS.

I fought the Lost Sinner using a Lightning Heide Spear +9, which seemed to work well enough, but my Lightning Spear miracles were doing negligible damage... 50 to 80 per cast or thereabouts. Anyone else have a similar experience?

Okay, just killed her right now without estus :P (3rd try) Tip: Put your shield up and get at her back. 1 or 2 strikes. Regenerate stamina. Repeat. Win.

If you're really having a hard time (for those who still play this game), try and use the Sunlight Spear with a strong chime for miracles. (Ex. DragonChime w/Lightning Infuse)

Using miracles on this boss woupdent be wise espically when your exposed while casting those spears . I cannot say the Sam for spear I fought her using dual shield and red eye ring .

I fought Her once on NG+....It seems the Lost Sinner has a sort of Magic Weakness.... I was using a Crystal Magic Weapon Buffed +10 Uchigatina to fight her, and it did a great deal of damage to her per swing.

When I faced her, I blocked most of her attacks and this was the shield I used. I did not reinforce it. I did not enchant it. It was just a normal shield but it took the hits and kept on trucking. I also floated like a butterfly and stung like a scorpion with my Heide Knight Sword.

Yes

yes, but I recommend farming the old iron king, as he drops more souls (the most if you consume his souls actually) , is easier to beat, and has a bonfire right next to him.

Are there any other weaknesses to know about?

You can summon Lucatiel to help you, and light the fires before the room. After that, it's mostly a matter of knowing when to attack, when to dodge and when to block. Is there a specific problem you are having?

So after a ton of wiping on this guy on ascetic +1 around lvl 75 (SL ~500k), i was able to get him down. Here's my experience- Hardest part was clearing the way, I've ended up resetting it about 11-12 times until the trash disappeared (except the Flexile Sentry).- You can bait the big Undead Aberrations to fall into the elevator pit (if you send the elevator back up once you're down) for easy souls and a chance at Chaos Rapier/Shield- Beware of the two exploding guys at the stairs (an additional red one on NG+)- Once only the Flexile Sentry is left, summon Lucatiel and run on the right side thru the hole in the wall till you get to Luet and ignore the Sentry- Make sure you light the fires, the two red guards wont attack if you dont get too close- PS4 SOTFS Redeye Ring didn't seem to get him off Lucatiel too much, actually got a bit in the way since the NPCs do weak damage against the Sinner- Upgraded Drangleic sword to +3, you need your best damage weapon- Lucatiel takes a lot of damage, so is Luet- You need to dish out as much damage as possible before Lucatiel and Luet die so you got some distraction during the adds phase- Focus on the adds asap, Luet has the Redeye Ring and seems to hold aggro pretty well- Most likely you will end up with soloing the Sinner at around 50-40% after the adds are dead- BE PATIENT, use a shield (Drangleic in my case), block a few hits, dodge a few and just hit ONCE when you're sure there's a window (my +3 Drangleic sword does 169 damage per normal attack)- Never run out of stamina, at my SL he would 1 shot me if i couldn't block so make sure you hit him only once, don't get greedy- On some attacks i got staggered due to low stamina, roll out of the way asap in that case, normally he wont do a quick attack after a heavy- Enjoy your fire weapon

You only have to kill the exploding guys, everyone else can be run past.

Didn't even need any strategies listed here. Only wanted to know if it was weak to Magic/Poison so I could applying resin to my weapons. Thanks for nothing
