Having hard time beating the rotten boss tips?
1. Block only when dogding isn't a viable option
2. Fire defence is recommended
3. NPCs work as a great distraction
4. Lighting(and maybe poison and bleed*) damage dealing weapons/miracles are recommended
5. Everything I wrote is totally useless but hey, he is slow so don't go over 70% equip load and I recommend rolling to the side rather than away from him.
Use an upgraded thrust weapon like a rapier. The rotten is very weak to thrust weapons.
You can roll through most of his attacks, I suggest rolling towards whichever direction he is swinging from and then using your atks, there should also be an npc you can summon before the fight
*ahem*
get
*drumroll*

GOOD

seriously though the Rotten is one of the easiest bosses in the entire game
only losers and fanboys say "get good" when someone simply asks for tips.

Really it's a matter of rolling and having a decent damage weapon I suggest leaving the rotten until near the end also lucatiel can be summoned and she is a good distraction and does ok damage
I use unupgraded broadsword with help of lucatiel to get drakeblood cosplay early. This boss is easier than jester thomas
here's my tip: Get a good weapon. In the room, light the oil on fire. Tally around until he swings. Get some fire damage. Over 70% is bad. Over-spamming weapon is bad. Don't be greedy. now go back and read all the capital letters in my tips.

A scratching post legit though use lightning practically every enemy in dark souls 2 is weak to the sweet Zeus juice
I'm probably way late on this, but all dlc enemies and bosses are highly resistant to elemental damage. Best bet is to go online and summon a couple of human players.
Playing SotFS and the Pursuer has a combo where he stabs the ground. Has anyone else experienced this? I've never seen it before and I've played the game multiple times.

Yes it is?! I just picked it up at the bottom of the lift on the first left it is on a corpse against the wall.
Me too and I'm on SOTFS as well.
Well what is it?
Anybody have a full moon sickle they are willing to trade? The drop rate on that thing is atrocious even with prisoners tatters, mask, and Covetous Gold Serpent ring +2. I'm on Xbox one
how to be good at dark souls: Get a decent weapon. Invest in vitality. Test out movesets. Go and explore. Under 30% is key. Dont get greedy. go back and read all the capital letters,
