Only thing they need in the moveset is to be able to parry and critic on the player. He did it to another watcher in the opening, that looks pretty cool
You want a parry king as a boss?i mean i think they should do that but when i reached grand archive i fougth the man with the crystal staff and he was parry almost all my attacks ,so abyss watchers parrying doesnt seem to be a good idea
They were too easy to be a Lord of Cinder soul vessel. I've found some of the other bosses more difficult than these guys, which from a lore-standpoint, is off-putting.
sure they are easy...if you know what you are doing. But at this point in the game most newcomers don't really. I played DS1, 2 and Demons Souls and still they forced me to level up 30sl to have enough to survive them. Now I beat Nameless King without taking any damage. Main problems are that the fight centers around multiple enemies, and hiding behind a shield won't work. 2 huge problems. Nothing what you've learned so far to this point works. And then even a second phase! Compare that to Vordt, the Cursed Greatwood or the Crystal Mage. The jump in difficulty is immense. Compareable to the jump Ornstein/Smough was.
But I mean, if you compare them to yhorm.
Not gonna lie, fighting them is super fun, but I ruined it for myself on the first play through by pussying out and summoning a sunbro who pretty much tore them to shreds in seconds.
Not sure if it's the Blood of the Wolf eventually drove the Watchers mad or the Abyss tainted them so they fought each other
The latter.
They only went after the Abyss. Thus why they're attacking each other. Red eyes (which the other Watcher has) is a sign of abysmal corruption. Just look at the Oolacile bloatheads. Plus it isn't a coincidence that they happen to be directly above Wolnirs residence (where he's ported to the Abyss)
Lets also not forget the Darkwraiths. Who are the Four Kings' Knights of New Londo that also fell to the Abyss.
So yeah, fighting each other cause the Abyss eventually reached the Watchers of Farron.
Their eyes aren't the only sign, they have black gunk covering parts of their armour and clothing, this same tarnishing can be seen on Artorias, although to a much greater degree.
I started co-oping with my dual-wield ugs build and found that the charged two-handed R2 on the zweihander pancakes the boss in either stage. I assume that extends to any big enough weapon with a downward swing as the charged R2. It is really satisfying to keep smacking him down while the host wails.

Me too
Ecksdee random
What kind? Poached, scrambled, sunny side up, etc.?
These guys have a lot of similarites to hunters from bloodborne
"Beyblade, Beyblade, let it rip!"
I HATE them. I think I'm stuck there since 4 hours
Try wait out the jumping attack and bash him hard in that window of recovery time :)
I reckon it took me about 5 hours to beat this boss. I was weilding a +0 rapier, and i only parried. And yet, i love this f***ing boss
Ithyrill straight sword. Frost destroys them
try out Castlevania's Trevor Belmont theme to this. It turns this battle into a hurricane!
HYDRO STORM!
Worth noting that they can be parried and riposted in both phases, although only on specific attacks (the more standard sweep combo, not the crazy dash/roll attacks). Ironically, in NG+ the Farron Greatsword can be quite effective.
