Man this fight solo is... Something else. Running out of stamina is a real issue - they never stop attacking. You need to be super SUPER patient and wait for openings to get one or two (if you're lucky) hits in on the blade bearer before returning to spamming the dodge roll because these ****ers NEVER STOP ATTACKING. Seriously they saw duo fights in Dark Souls III, Friede and Father Ariendal, the demons from below, and implemented it poorly because they don't understand what makes a duo fight good. Attacks from offscreen need to be telegraphed (Friede's floor ice in phase 2, the demon's explody breath) and there needs to be a cadence to the fight with breaks where you can do your damage. This fight fails on these fronts, the two opponents have AI that just says "attack constantly", the canoneer has attacks that blast you with no telegraph, the blade bearer gives you no room and closes distance shooting up your *** faster than a crucible knight. **** this fight. It could have been good too, imo, if they just toned down the aggression a little bit and had something like a laser sight from the canoneer for his fireball attack so it can't just blast you from offscreen with no warning.
