Because running back and forth across the entire arena is so damn boring.

He's a good boss because if I fought him as a sorcerer I would constantly get hit? :-/

How does that make him less boring for everything else?

The arrow rain and dark beads are entirely too persistent, last too long, and can be spammed too often.

He's a **** and he deserves every single Chaos Fire Orb you chuck at his big fat caterpillar ***.

I think he's one of the most fun bosses in the game. Those arrow rain attacks are great. :D

That and his teleport literally taking him from one end to the other remove most elements of tactics from the fight. Run around and hope you have enough stamina to get a hit in seems to sum it all up. Out of all the Lords of Cinder, his fight has the least going for it; Yhorm at least pulls on every desire to wield an awesome weapon and amazing music.

I find them so... dull. Just... run. Run and hope you don't turn wrong and get shredded by an attack he likes to use from the other end of the screen.

Haha, joke's on you, I can kill him in about 90 seconds on a STR build.

I feel like Aldrich was made to be hated, those of us who had attachments to the people he ate would want to utterly stomp him into the ground. So him being extremely annoying only adds to it.

You know you can shut him down completely with Vow of Silence right?
