The remaster's got me itching again, so i'm installing DS1 right now. Any recommended texture/reskin mods, because right now the most I can really find that I can get things up to snuff with quickly are the Dark Souls Overhaul (https://www.nexusmods.com/darksouls/mods/1238) and 3-style UI (https://www.nexusmods.com/darksouls/mods/1107).

Don’t listen to him, anyone who’s beaten a boss a few times inevitably says that it shouldn’t give you trouble. I would say the same after beating gael, midir and demon princes but they are fuck hard fights.
Dancer is hard because she pretends to be slow then swings hyper fast, has fire and magic damage, breaks the framerate and cannot be blocked on her spin moves. Stick to her ass until she pulls her second sword out, then stick to her front and roll into her attacks to avoid them. Use the dark hand if it’s still too hard because her hp pool can be a problem as well

>If it's easy how is it deep, retard?
Because it's easy to counter by means of opponent prediction, which is depth.

Because failure to predict the actions of your opponent means you eat a big one, faggot.

>Everything is intellectually more challenging

>Balance isn't a justification either.
What? Obviously, if you can have too much depth which is what you're clearly arguing, you can also have too little. Dark souls 2 and 3 pvp does not have enough depth to maintain interest for me for more than a few hundred hours at most. Meanwhile I've easily dumped a good 2k in Dark Souls 1.
>>
>>201691617
Getting greedy. Dancer is really easy, and I'm not saying that because of what this guy said >>201691780 I'm saying that because she requires patiance, and there are some truly bullshit bosses in DS3, like Midir or NK, but she isnt one of them.

Yes, yes it is.

>thinks guaranteed backstabs are a good mechanic
Making sure to always maintain a position where your hitbox was in relation to where your opponent's hitbox will be so that you don't get backstabbed, and the opposite scenario where you position yourself in such a way where you know where your opponent's hitbox will be before it's actually there and landing a backstab is intellectually stimulating and a good mechanic, yes.

Without this constant pressure to maintain safe positioning, pvp becomes so simple that it's boring.
>>
>>201691986
I just can't read her god damn attacks. At all.
NK and Friede and Co. have lots of very well-defined attacks, that while sometimes difficult to dodge, are clear enough to be approachable. I'm not getting that from Dancer even a little bit, and holy fuck I've fought her so many times. Which means I have to dodge with twitch reaction alone, and I just can't do that.

Holy shit I cannot WAIT for that Ds1 remaster so I can stop dealing with this shit.

This. I got frustrated fighting her at SL1, took a break and it was much simpler when I came back. If you let a boss tilt you, you’ll never beat it angry.

>>201691956
>if you can have too much depth which is what you're clearly arguing
No it's not, you complete brainlet. There are games a million times deeper than DS1 which actually generate depth properly. My point for the last three posts you've failed to interpret has been that a mechanic's ability to add more depth doesn't justify it's addition. What you're saying it like saying "well more money is good" and then lopping your arm off for a penny. You're saying that they aren't a big deal whenever anyone calls DS1 "backstab souls" then saying that they make a huge fucking difference whenever anyone says the game isn't deep. You're just a hard boiled hypocrite who can't let go of your fighting-game-lite ego. Hang yourself.

>come back later
Oh anon, I've come back later so many times, soooo many times. I go through this with every character, every single time. Hell, even the many that don't get very far because of how repetitive playthoughs are still try Dancer at some point. Maybe it will click this time! Spoilers, it doesn't.

Last and most fun character was a barely-planned Millwood man I made to check out the two DLCs. Dancer, who'd I'd of course fought a lot at this point, at appropriate level and everything, took...I dunno, a dozen tries or so? Something like that.

Demon Prince took one. Gael took three or four. I was completely blind to both of them. Friede took a lot, as she should, but still.
>>
>>201693517
Have you considered playing better?
>>
>>201693394
When something dies, you gain a charge on your pyro flame as long as it's out (you can two-hand your main weapon though). When you gain 12 charges, you get an aura on your character. Use the WA in a safe spot, and you'll expend some FP to get a full orange flask back.

It also works as an invader, it's a nice way to get free Estus for the host's dirty work.

I really don’t understand how she could stop you so many times compared to the much harder dlc bosses. Dancer is certainly a pain at low levels but what the hell man

what's the most underrated weapon in DS1?
>>
>>201693303
I am saying that DaS1 backstabs and netcode are good because they force you to be mindful of positioning, but are also easy to counter if you predict your opponents actions correctly. It's pretty straightforward.

This isn't about ego, it's about pvp being fun. Exploring the intricacies of these mechanics over a slowly evolving meta is fun.

Outside of raw builds and stats themselves, other souls games haven't really had much of a meta like Dark Souls 1 and Demon's Souls had, because they lack the proper amount of depth.

>>201693842

You see, while it may lack scaling it makes up for this in high base damage, a very unique look and an epic special R2 that’s a callback to DeS storm ruler! One of my favorites and a must on all my RP characters.

The standard longsword
Constantly overlooked but that thing was incredibly solid and versatile
None of the later games' has felt as good, although obviously DaS3 longswords are "better"
>>
>>201693891
The problem with your thinking is that if two intellectually equal people match up, they will circle each other predicting the others movement and not make a move until the other does. This becomes a mind game and is what shit up DS3 when it came out. Thankfully we’ve moved onto stat min maxing and going apeshit with HA which is cancerous but at least it isn’t boring.
If you have to focus on predicting backstabs and avoiding them, you’ll never have balls to the wall fighting, just mind gaming.

Nah, it's annoying but clearly intentional and not broken. They do pretty low damage and are just there to prevent you from cheesing them by standing underneath where they can't attack.

But when do you even attack in phase 3? She's always either doing a crazy combo or potentially about to continue a crazy combo.
>>
>>201695063
You have to bait a weaker attack, like the overhead slam (stand right in front) or roll into her endless spin, wait for stamina and attack while she’s in her tired animation. Honestly you have to have decent damage and hp because the easiest way is just out trading her as opposed to beating her with estus left over. At higher SL levels you can just stagger her big ass over and over

gives the same reward as invading with no covenant item at all. It has a rare chance for double rewards though, which is meaningless since you can easily get 30+ without it ever actually happening.

I just realized that one of the major differences between Dark Souls 1 and the other games is that a lot of the early game takes place in very cramped corridors that have the effect of making your weapon bounce a lot.

How do I know this? Because I just replayed that game for the first time in 5 years. Just beat everything up to reaching Anor Londo. My Longsword never bounced this often in Dark Souls 3 or in Dark Souls 2.

Also, four-way rolling when locked on has aged poorly. So has the Halberd moveset. It feels so terrible whiffing an attack with a Halberd in Dark Souls 1. Which is why I hope the upcoming Dark Souls 1 remaster makes the weapons closer to Dark Souls 3 in design so that it feels less clunky.

I'm using the Notched Whip and I actually rather like the moveset but is the damage supposed to be kinda shit or am I doing something wrong?
I can't really tell if the problem lies with whips, with bleed weapons or with myself desu

Midir has one shot moves and a large hp pool, this is no different than any other dragon boss in the series. Kalameet could double his damage against you for a guaranteed one shot and was much faster. Ancient dragon is fought on a small arena and has horrible hit boxes. Midir is just smack the nose, riposte and end the fight. You have to be a brainlet to not beat him in under 10 tries the first time you meet him. He stands still for sorceries like mist, weapons with vertical move sets. He isn’t easy but he’s nowhere near the toughest boss
>>
>>201697183
Whips are hard to use, since they aren't fast at all
They have range, but no damage
Try Pyro Whip, that one actually does damage and has crazy range
>>
>>201697152
Why even kill them? You can just run past all of them and by the time you get to Patches none of them will chase you anymore.
>>
>>201697183
All whips have piss poor damage besides one whip in DS2, the reason being their wide hitboxes would make higher AR and bleed op in pvp. They are decent in pve but don’t be surprised if they feel lackluster

Guys, I need a fun build for some aldrich invasions and such. I was thinking about doing a peasant build with the 4 pronged plow. Any ideas?

>>201697192
The idea of Khalameet being anywhere near as difficult as Midir is so preposterous I can't even formulate an intelligent response. My brain can't even handle the proposition.

K's got to be one of the most solid, fair, consistent bosses in the entire series.

A solid, fair boss can still be the most difficult. I wasn’t saying kalameet is more difficult regardless, but imo he is because he’s fast. Midir is a slow, healthy piece of shit you just have to use gimmicks against.

I'm not sure how bad I should consider myself to be, but it's the first time I've done it at low SL without assistance. The annoying thing is that if you don't get two Gnaws on her consecutively, it won't proc and you'll have to use a third one, which makes it much harder than with Dorhys' where two shots will guarantee a proc. And for reference, I had 20 Vigor and a Dragon Crest Shield since that thing's a lifesaver.

The toughest part of Midir is definitely the runback. It's way too long and just makes players play poorly when they do reach him because of how frustratingly long it is. I really don't know why they don't just put a bonfire right before that drop off wall, just like how the bonfire for Gael is right before his fog door.

Anyway, you're right about everything else. People definitely overrated Midir. I'd still say Kalameet is number one, followed by Sinh, then Midir, then Ancient Dragon (both the ones in Dark Souls 2 and 3).

If midir really seems so difficult, watch a few guides on beating him and you’ll see he’s one of the easier bosses to cheese.

Sorcery gimmick is the only real gimmick, I never get head riposte until near the end of the fight where it either kills him or gets him within 1/2 hits.

Elaborate. Do you mean just mashing R1 at a dude with a defense buff active? Because those literally don't work due to always being able to roll out after two hits, and anyone with half a brain is going to do just that once they realize what you're trying to do. Even less recommended in PvE since trading against mobs is always a bad idea.

This is how people felt about Ornstein and smough back in the day, don’t worry. If you really can’t make even a 75% dent on his hp after so many tries, say fuck it and over level yourself. Go in with maximum preparedness and all the spells that counter him.
I fought midir about a dozen times, gave up and came back to beat him in 3 tries with a co op summon (makes it harder because his hp pool becomes godlike).

PS4. I've seen guys beat him with insane hypermode builds at insanely low SLs, so I guess it isn't much of an excuse, but I did the DLC at SL70 with just a regular 25/40 build.

At that point of the game, people are 55-65 with a +6 or +7 weapon (unless they did trc or lothric castle first).

I could have put it on strength but when you twohand your strength has half of itself added back onto it, which means odd numbered strength values will cause the stat to end in .5 while twohanding, which gets rounded off.

It isn't, your health comes from estus in invasions. 27 vig at sl60 is fine.

both weapons are str scaling

>>201700980
I used to use that same build with 30 str and 34 vig, the sword gets whittled down into a frost stick without it. Here's me using it with 32 vig and 30 str.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjpwuOrB9TI

You also need to be able to onehand the hammer to switch to it and riposte.

You can go for just 30 str but the extra vigor isn't very useful. Most of the time, if you die, it's because you got trapped in a spot where all the health in the world wouldn't have saved you. Going past 27 vig at this SL is really just parry protection, but again, if someone swaps out to a chaos dagger, they'll take you down with one riposte even from higher vig levels.

>>201701023
You can still see when the swing happens and that's usually enough to dodge it. You have to dodge attacks that would hit you where you were X amount of time ago (which is your lag) and you have to attack X amount of time before the enemy is in a vulnerable state. It's fucking retarded, I know, but that's how it works and whining won't change it. You can either adapt or go home.

Depends entirely on what you want to use. Do you absolutely insist on Vordt's

Yes, because you have such an estus advantage over the host. 27 vig is what my pre-catacombs invasion builds have. You seem to be forgetting that when facing multiple people, the 2-hit stunlock rule doesn't apply as strictly
The stamina isn't the biggest aggressor, especially since you use GH, but I still think it's too much. People who get hit by GH tend to not be too eager to get hit again
>both weapons are str scaling
So what? Neither 34 nor 50 str are a softcap. Your options are 20, 27, 30 and 40, and I would stick to 30 if you absolutely have to be able to swing the GH onehanded, which is a terrible idea.

>>201701879
>Neither 34 nor 50 str are a softcap
You don't always have to end on a softcap anon. You don't get a bonus for it. It's a soft "cap," not a soft "floor." On top of that, the points fade into the softcap steadily, so the 39th and 40th points of str are notably weaker than the 37th and 38th on the sword.

>I would stick to 30 if you absolutely have to be able to swing the GH onehanded
You need to be able to onehand it to switch to it on ripose and you want your sword to do damage so that you use it to kill people without relying exclusively on frost.

>You seem to be forgetting that when facing multiple people, the 2-hit stunlock rule doesn't apply as strictly
If you actually do get bodylocked a gank can combo you down from 99vig. You're probably not using the estus ring. If you've got 1k hp without the estus ring and get dropped to 100 hp, you're going to chug once and be at 700 health afterward, likely unwilling to use another estus flask to top yourself off since half of it would get cut off. Because of this, 27 viggers with 1k HP end up only really having 700-800 hp in practice, which makes them squishy as fuck. Either that or they go for the double sip and have virtually no resources. With the estus ring though, you're at full health with basically every sip, but without huge overkill, so you actually get all 1k of your 1k hp.

>>
>>201702510
>You don't get a bonus for it.
What the fuck kind of an argument is that? It's about bonus, it's about efficiency and some stat points being more valuable than others. If you didn't notice, I'm not advocating 40 str
If you don't want to rely on frost (which is fine, it's very inconsistent by Irithyll) you should use a great mace+heavy longsword/broasword instead
>If you actually do get bodylocked
That requires you to fuck up way beyond getting hit by some straight sword and get staggered into an oncoming running ugs attack.
>You're probably not using the estus ring
Only all the time. My current build is efficient enough to only need 2 standard slots, so I switch between that, cat, spr, chloranthy, obscuring and hawk as needed. But estus is irrelevant if you die to a combo

I don't ever get caught in combos unless it's three guys who put me in a position where I'm completely boned regardless of how much vig I've got. If your problem is having people combo off of running attacks then just do backwards parries.

I'd use the spiked mace if I was forgoing frost. It's thematic though.

question for you, what armour setup do you use?

>>201703441
Brigand set with xantharous crown and thorn gauntlets. I'm not recommending it though, and you can wear more armor as a knight.
>>
Is there an origin that would let my indecisive ass flipflop from a 66 str build to a quality build and back, maybe dabbling in int and faith too, without being too inefficient? I can never decide on a build. I want to use stuff like hidden body and tears sometimes, but I don't want a full faith or int build.

Depends on the weapon, but I'd say no. 40/40 is mostly about uninfusable weapons, which are as a rule of the thumb unbuffable (only exception I can think of is anri's which is a luck weapon) and a bit of versatility with other weapons in exchange for damage. Blessed weapon depends on your AR. You'll probably be better off with a resin

>the Old Monk boss is easy as fuck
Demon's Souls Old Monk was not any harder and the DS3 one is infinitely better because you have the Painting Guardians as a backup but the fight doesn't extend forver because both parties have a million grasses.

>scraping spear
Completely unbalanced due to how easy it was to destroy people's equipment in a game where you can heal forever. Would've been better if there were more tools for armor destruction but they would be more specialized or balanced. For example hammers / greathammers should do extra dura damage against plate armors while slashing weapons would do the same against light armor so in protracted fights your armor runs the risk of being destroyed.

The Porcine Shield is a reference to him. Bandai Namco held a shield design contest for DS2 and a fansubmitted a Marcus Shield with the image of a pig on it in reference to his Youtube / Twitter mascot of the time which is a plush pig. What I recall happening is that after it had won the community vote, it was discovered that the pig design on the shield was just a photoshop of a stock image of a pig onto a shield and since it had already won, Bamco didn't want to take it out and they put the shield in but redesigned it and gave it a disparaging description. For some fucking reason they also put the ass ugly shield in DS3.

>I didn't realize people liked him a whole ton here
The ratio of people who like him here is probably the same as people who like him in other communities I guess. He used to be one of the support pillars of the entire western Souls community so he's pretty relevant.

>>201705787
Farron Magic is very cost ineffective and i doubt you will have enough punch to do most bosses from start to finish using that method no matter how much int/att/chugs you stack.

The same problem applies for offensive miracles

30 att gives you 233 FP (and 5 slots), which is enough to give you a "bank" if you want efficient chugging.
At 35 att (the "FP" cap of attument) you get 280 FP, but it's not really worth it.

Just stick to great arrows, the great heavy arrows is the most cost effective sorcery in the game and have the (vanilla) greatsword as an AoE backup in case you get swarmed.

It's overall just better. I like the more chaotic fights of DS3 compared to DS1. Phantoms also give people more incentive to go online, especially in DS1 which was the only Souls game without health penalty when you weren't in the "online available" form.

And no, Bloodborne isn't really a Souls game and it's invasions were fucked by the Bell system.

Your latest Souls game is usually the hardest.
Also : Defensive playstyles are more viable in DS1 while playing fast and aggressive like DS3 / BB is harder.
>>
>>201710439
Dark Souls 1 is probably the easiest entry in the series for me. Most enemies are very passive, possessing only a couple of basic moves, so can always circle strafe them and land a backstab. Their attacks are heavily telegraphed too. You can parry with every shield, minus great shields of curse. A good 100% block shield is easy mode. You can cheese most bosses with a high stability shield and they won't be able to guard break you. You can poise your way out of most semi-challenging situations as well. The only hard parts are when you are facing a boss for the first time and don't know his moves yet, or when you run with unupgraded weapons on purpose.
>>
>>201711135
my toughest boss in DS1 was the Iron Golem, i killed him with an Halberd hiting for 15 dmg each hit. After that i put some stats in Str and Dex and equiped the Black Knight Greatsword. Everything was easy mode by then, and i haven't read any wiki's or anything.

There's no point in attuning two of the same spell in 3 like there was in DaS2 and 1, right? It'd be cool if attuning a spell twice or more would reduce FP used to cast it.

Slave Knight Gael on NG+7 has 21,368 HP and is very resistant to magic. In terms of direct damage dealing, bringing enough Ashen Flasks to do such a thing would leave you with no Estus Flasks. The most conceivable way of doing enough damage to kill Gael without bringing 12 Ashen Estus as a spellcaster is to poison him to death with the Poison Spores of the Storyteller Staff's WA, which doesn't even need an attunement slot to use.

That is not how one should play a magician.

He even had base vig - something like 450HP. Deleted in a single parry from the red.

60/60 with a pyromancer is rather pointless because after 40/40 you're only gaining 1 point, the only difference is that pyro spells are boosted to retarded levels that makes the entire game pointless, that's why that build is way over the no fun point.

>The Remastered edition will reportedly include several new NPCs whose dialogue will advance as the plot of the game progress or when the player acquires new items
>"While I feel that the mythos behind the game was sufficiently answered when we introduced Artorias of the Abyss, we are not confident that will remain true for the new wave of players" - said Director Mizayaki. "You see, when we first incepted Dark Souls, we did not foresee that it would become so popular. And with popularity comes challenges. Dark Souls was written with the Playstation players in mind, most of which are adults, and thus we could afford to be subtle and deliver the plot via intricate nuances. Such concepts might be novel to the Nintendo playerbase, which consist exclusively of children, or children-like adults."

This sums up my feelings at that scene more than anything.

Your entire quest was to slay powerful monsters and strengthen your soul, just for the chance to meet the King of Drangleic, and you end up finding this hollowed-out dude who barely even knows how to swing a sword. It's even more impactful when you realize that Velstadt and Raime, powerful bosses in their own right, both acknowledged HIM as their ruler. Even in this miserable hollow state he's still more than capable of kicking your ass, and it takes obtaining the souls of giants to weaken him down to the point where you can even scratch him. In retrospect, it makes you wonder just how powerful he truly was when he was in his prime.

There's something I never quite understood, Alsanna was supposed to be Manus' fears, and she feared the old chaos and warned the king about it.

But what was the old chaos then exactly? The boss arena looks like it's a chunk of Izalith, but what reason would Manus have to fear the Chaos? And if it's supposed to be the Izalith brand of Chaos then why does it posses the knights and king instead of shitting out demons?

Is it yet another convoluted thing?

Yeah, Dragonrider is a pushover. Some people even leave the outer rings of the arena down so that they can goad him into walking off the side for an easy kill. Even without that, all you need to do is strafe towards his shield arm, and he won't be able to hit you with most of his attacks.

It's a shame since you can tell they actually put some thought into his design. The lower his HP gets, the faster he becomes and the longer his combos chain, and it's a gradual process too. I'm pretty sure that the only other time I've seen this happen with a boss is Gael's first phase.

Are you not leveling Intelligence or Attunement much, but occasionally use WAs? Then no for Crystal but yes for Simple.

It's somewhere in pic related, I want to say in the top row.
She's not bad, all things considered, and she at least wants to help if you become a Finger. Wish Creighton could also do something if you join, maybe get summoned by him at the bridge to kill Sirris.
Now that I think about it, Sirris dies to Creighton if you don't follow her quest; she still goes after him anyway, and there's no way she could win.

>>201725198
DaS2 had a lot of interesting characters that were thrown out for literally no reason. But really, given that he was such a central character to SotFS's plot I'm rather glad that he didn't make a cameo, otherwise it would have been another thing for Miyazaki to shit on.

I always thought the skeleton dogs in the small cave on the Road of Sacrifices, were somehow supposed to symbolize Eygon and Irina.
You get the Carim Braille tome and Morne ring down in the cave where one doggo is preggo. He knows what's beyond the Chapel because he warns you about it, and he's a badass capable of killing Corvians, so why'd he turn back and lock Irina in a cell? Is Irina preggers? Is she even human? undead can't get preggo can they?

People need to stop thinking they are doing anything.

The 'remaster' is simply a port of Dark Souls to current gen consoles, nothing is going to change gameplay wise aside from the new servers allowing 6 players in a world.
>>
>>201726645
Avelyn sees use in invasions as well, it's just more common on the side of gankers or blueberries where their allies can cover them and the multiple shots can put more pressure on an already-harried invader. It still has its uses though, provided that you can spare the Vit for it.

As for Heavy Crossbow, see >>201687971

Don't start with 3. Just don't. DS3 is incredibly linear compared to the other souls games, and feels like a watered down DS1 overall (You can't make 3 steps without tumbling upon another DS reference). It also has shitty, just as linear DLCs compared to the other 2 games.
Get Prepare to Die, and if you liked it try out DS2 (SotFS) and DS3 after.

Literally nobody plays DaS1 for anything but the PvE anymore, the "PvP" got stale and retarded years ago. Nobody likes backstab "techs" and the balance was broken beyond recognition in so many areas.

The only thing the remaster will do is get some people to play it instead of DaS3, and then just go back to DaS3 later anyways because the remaster won't have nearly as much content or fun invasion zones.

One-dimensional != bad character. A lot of the characters in DaS1 are endearing, but also very straightforward and simple. You don't see anything beyond the surface for the vast majority of them, to the point where it's only really Reah (and maybe Anastacia) that has any meaningful depth. Gough has good dialogue as well, but you don't really do much with him outside of asking him to shoot down Kalameet.

That also applies to a degree to characters like Frampt and Kaathe, but for the most part the initial introduction of the character is exactly who that character is. They get somewhat more complex in DaS3 (Siegward is a much better character than Siegmeyer), but for the most part the ones in DaS1 aren't wholly remarkable.
>>
>>201731876
some npc's like Solaire and Siegward were a bit to meme'd by the community but they are still interesting character to interact with

Siegmeyer is an amazing character. The jovial bumbling adventurer that keeps getting into trouble, and you saving him and prolonging the quest is what causes him to hollow out in the first place. Your refusal to let him die a hero's death and repay a debt completely destroys his will.

Defense is meh for the most part, it really depends if you're doing a melee build or a caster build.

And if possible, always stick as close to 50% as possible, going to 69.9% is actually a bad idea because it reduces your movement and stamina regeneration speed, not just roll distance.

Longsword is always the answer.

So you basically were saying that DaS3 has the best npcs without having played DeS? Good to know.

what is your opinion on them? is any of them good? which one?

I'm willing to give it a go anon, bleed bandit's knife should carry us through to victory. You can always summon Lapp if you want someone tanky though.

it does make it quite a bit easier, but you can always just level up a fair bit before you fight it

DaS1 here, did most/all of the bosses up to the final four and did Bed of Chaos, what should I do with my boss souls? which weapons and shields are the best, which ones have the least annoying soul/weapon/upgrade requirements to get them, which ones upgrade in a nice way?

Claymore, Estoc, Balder Side Sword are the best. Stamina shield is the best.

I think most of the decent runners are doing it with no autistic skips nowadays, so it's not too bad.

First phase is easy with one phantom if each player are dealing with one bat.
On second phase I don't do a lot of damage but with a non ai phantom
Which demons must be killed first ? I don't remember

Pain for the laser beams.

Are you playing with all the textures set on low or something? That looks like a PS3 game.

i still haven't managed to kill him, holy fuck. First time i killed him, a phantom with a Carim Hammer cheesed the fight by killing the Prince while i tank him. Orbeck is useless too.
