    what level are you?

      O&S are memed a bit too hard, but they can still be difficult. You are using one of the best weapons in the game imo, which does help - if that's your screenshot that is, file name suggests otherwise. What level are you though?

      71, I never went out of my way to grind but I did clear out every other area before progressing through Anor Londo (as much as I could anyway, I found out the hard way you can't beat some bosses before getting the Lordvessel), since I assumed that was the main route

        I didn't "just" beat them actually, it happened two days ago
        though I'm pretty sure all I did was level up my strength some more

            I've yet to figure out what that does exactly beyond allowing me to get more flasks (whatever), summoning (which I never do) and getting me invaded (scary)

            71? Did you fricking fight Four Kings before lordvessel?

            nope, I still haven't fought them

            What level were you when you beat them? If you were 50-60 I'd say that's about on-par.

              Oh ok. Well, get that counter up to 10 because you get some buffs to your discovery (item drop rate) and defense. Also, weapons with the chaos infusion will do more damage at 10 humanity. You also get a defense buff at 99 humanity but only PvPers and mega-grinders bother with that.
              You can also pay 30 humanity to the spider girl to skip centipede demon and most of izalith.

                how hard is it to farm humanity if I needed to? I'm afraid I'll just lose it all to an invader and run out, though I guess using it is better than just having it sitting in my inventory. I have maybe like 25-30 right now
                >You can also pay 30 humanity to the spider girl to skip centipede demon and most of izalith.
                I'll probably do that for future playthroughs because that area kinda fricking sucks so far lol

                Farm the group of rats from the depths or by getting summoned for bosses. Having humanity doesn't activate invasions, turning human at the bonfire with humanity does.

                oh right, that never occurred to me because the first thing I do whenever I do use humanity is turn human

                Not him but I recently played the game the first time and the halberd dropped for me out of pure moron luck. Also the demon spear which is apparently also very rare and the titanite catchpole. Maybe the game knows I'm stupid and took pity.

                I'm OP and I assumed the halberd was a guaranteed drop since a bunch of the other knights I killed dropped their swords, I have like 3 of them in my inventory

                That anon is a fricking moron and I'm getting the impression he never played DS and just looked up it. I had the game drop it for me pretty early on.

                All the BK weapons are pretty good especially that halberd, should upgrade it. If you beat Seath you can farm twinkling titanites from the clams by his boss room.

                I was actually using the BK sword prior to getting the halberd. I have it at +4 or +5 right now, I can't remember. but yeah I ran out of mats to upgrade it and I haven't gotten to Seath yet

        Pretty easy choice there

        excellent range, does more damage than pretty much any other weapon I have, very fast. my only gripe with it is it can miss against smaller enemies due to the narrow hitboxes on the overhead hits
        >mask of the child
        legit just using this one because it looks funny and I wanted to keep a light roll, I had no idea it was actually good and I have since stopped using it

    You walked in with a setup close to how speedrunners fight this boss (replace power within with rtr). They die in a couple hits like that.

    Black knight glaive is very good. You got a very lucky item drop congrats!
    Thats the weapon speedrunners use in boss killing runs. You got lucky if it actually dropped for you. Thats why it feels so easy.

    The difficulty of these games is tied directly to how little you know about them. Dark Souls 1 especially was only difficult if you had never played a game similar to it, but I think it's kind of impossible to get that experience nowadays. The formula has been borrowed from and redone and discussed online endlessly by this point.

      I know there's little point in replying to this post but ultimately I don't know how much of a different that made. I killed them both of them in less than 10 hits while only having to heal maybe once or twice. How hard could it have been to get a couple more hits in?

      I can see that, I played Elden Ring before and found it a lot harder. Malenia for example took me several days to beat
