after extensive testing on dark souls 2 on ps3 on the most recent patch, with dark caitha's chime +10, and great resonant soul, and int/fth both at 45, and joined CoC, you can 1 shot the falconers at things betwixt only up to bonfire intensity 3. at 4, they require 2 shots.
leaving CoC you can one shot them up to bonfire intensity 5. at 6 they require 2 shots. for the sake of argument i respecc'ed to 65fth/65int and it was still requiring 2 shots, at both level 4/coc and level 6/no covenant, which really hinders the farm because at 2 shots i feel more comfortable killing the red phantoms vs using yearn and running, so that makes the farm exponentially more time consuming.
for ps4 i got the plat by doing coop, but since the ps3 community is so small now, i'm having to resort to offline farming.
