It looks like its part of Kosm’s spine I think
from-kun please produce another game that has the final boss of the dlc in a cutscene where it is literally*****ting on the orphan of kos and looking right at you
Just another suggestion in case you are struggling and nothing seems to work: Increase your vitality (40 is good) and level up until you hit 120 or so (for the flat defense bonus). It completely changed the fight for me, I was level 101 with 30 VIT, after grinding for 2 hours in Ailing Loran I was 125 with 40 VIT and I could tank one extra hit. Obviously I'm talking about NG, on NG+ I don't really know if you can brute force the fight this way. Other random tips: Always dodge sideways and towards him, you might end up behind him and get a free backstab (use Augur of Ebrietas, it IS worth the investment even if you don't use arcane). Use a fast weapon (Kirk/Ludwig swords are good but don't go slower than that), and don't be afraid of spamming 2-3 hits if he's open. Finally, don't give up. If you reached this point in the game, there's no way you can't beat this guy, you just have to learn how to react to his attacks. I think he's a fun fight despite everything, he reminded me a lot of Gael from DS3, I'd say he's even better since Gael was a lot more unfair in his final phase.
Parry is awesome for this fight. I beat him on my 4 try and pretty much just erased most of his life bar by parrying. Though i might have been lucky cause he mostly used physical attacks in his second phase which made it easier.
Amazing boss fight, just what ypu could expect for final boss. My second favourite just after lady maria fight
I wish i had a placenta blade too when i was born. Damn it mom
So is there a reason there's never anyone to summon in against this thing?
Honor. I made an unspoken rule that I cannot summon for this fight. Im certain others have as well.
Get good? Relying on summons cheats you out of the souls experience.. Use summons, always suck.
I summoned someone on my first attempt.
If your level is well over 120-150 you probably won't find many players in general
Summoning is part of the Souls experience, don't be a turd.
harder to fight with summons because it messes with your ability to parry
This, but BL4
Im a Little bit confused I thought Great ones cant get pregnant by them selves and because of that they impregnate human womans but still we see here how a Great one is borne out of the body of another Great one im sorry if i understood something wrong but has anyone an answer to that
I don't believe that the Orphan is actually a great one, you bring up a very important point and I have often thought of this. Since he is a Host of the Hunter's Nightmare, I think he is what "Could have been" possibly the source of the nightmare because he was born as a Great One which isn't allowed? A Bottomless Curse could be talking about how his 'miracle' birth could have messed with the world and the Great Ones lives, but this is merely speculation
I did not meant to say its not allowed for him to be born, what i meant was that it is not possible for Great ones to get pregnant and this is why Great ones instead impregnates human womans but as we can see in the cut scene when entering the boss fight all of a sudden manages a pregnant Great one to bring a child to the world. Thats at least how i understood it and iam sorry for my bad english
The great ones are all different, and it's not known if any other great ones reproduce through humans (amygdala doesn't seem to). The point of cosmic horror in this game is that we can't possibly know how the great ones, as individuals, really work. We only know a little bit about how a few of them reproduce
Could it be that they can be impregnated by other species, but not by other Great Ones? Kos does look somewhat human...
According to a Third Umbilical Cord description, a great one does indeed give birth to a child. But they lose that child, in which they "yearn for a surrogate" I assume this leads to them impregnating women to carry their child instead
English isn't my native language but tongue butthole
Cheese this boss by telling him he's adopted
Strong against arcane, weak against emotional damage
