these *****ing things are annoying as *****. I can't kill them at all because i always die to the lat one and he survives with barely any health

For some reason he has more health or defense than the others. But you can easily aggro them one at a time with arrows. Just have to creep up carefully so you don't aggro more than one.

It can be rough but you can aggro them one at time easily with a bow. If you're good at managing your stamina and predicting their attacks you can cheese them ever further with poison arrows or poison throwing knives.

Thats why they made Dark Souls II easier... you can still kill them 12 times or so and they wont respawn lol xD

I feel the same way. It really *****ing sucks because their weapon would be perfect for past builds i've made. My current build is a swamp witch that only uses equipment that is very bloodborne-esque and their weapon would be perfect for her.

Anyone who's having trouble with these guys: just creep very slowly into the area where they hang out until you see one aggro, then pull back. Back away from their first attack, roll through their second attack, then circle around them during their third attack and backstab them. I can easily get through all of them without getting hit once using this tactic.

These things are so annoying and after you beat them you have the real boss of the area, that damn red phantom outside the boss door...

The NG++ Executioners become stronger. At first I used the king's shield+5 to block his attack and went around behind him, now eating 2 slashes is "oh" "ah". Why can't you block the enemy's attack?

No **** they become stronger in NG+ and beyond. Anything other news for Captain Obvious? They have special attacks that go through shields (like shotels and other weapons). Just backstab them after they do a heavy attack.
