Most frustrating boss in game, never fails to kill me at least 6 times. That is all.

easiest boss of the game. he so weak on anything but magic, u can predict where he spawns, his holograms despawn upon your first hit on him, plenty of time to buff, eat, heal or do funny gestures between the spawns and to make it even more easier, there are 2 blue bug pallets on the route to this boss.

Sage is easy, but that doesn't mean I don't die to him. I agree he's annoying, though.

Now the Deacons is easy. I didn't even know they attacked with more than melee until I watched a guy try to kill them with an unupgraded torch. Turns out they have a big curse cloud they summon, and a few other tricks. You just never see them.

Not much fun as a magic build first time around, but like most bosses I just summoned 2 heavy melee to help and stood at the back, was generally fine except for the odd soul spear that could basically 1 shot me.

I can predict the spawns and it does go down quick, but not before it kills me with it's schmup nonsense several times. Miss one dodge, get stunned by a faron dart, while stunned get hit by 2 CSS and a white dragon breath and die.

At least longer fights like the dancer and pontif aren't basically garunteed to kill you if at any point any attack hits so I can actually fight back.

Sounds like you need a bit more Vigor.

I always bring Eigon to draw away some of the attached is from me, and you used to be able to buy Magic Barrier from the miracle lady, but last time I played a new character she didn't have it for some reason. I don't know why???

Magic Barrier comes from the Lothric tome. Sounds like you killed Dancer early at one point.

There's two blue pellets on the other side of where the sorcery tutor is hiding out, those help a lot. If you want to absolutely cheese the Sage, Sacred Flame can lock him in an infinite grab chain.

*** buffed with fire. Usually kill him within first 2 times he pops up. And then other times he's a wizard ninja that stun lock combos me into oblivion by swinging his staff while I get hammered by a soul spear.
