Laurence ain't nothing to fuck with. I would agree that you should wait on him.

I had to abuse the Moonlight to beat Laurence. I'd put my money on him as the hardest boss in the game, honestly. I've got no idea how you're supposed to deal with his second phase without sword lasers.

You can bait his AI into a pretty safe attack to counter semi-reliably.

Carefully? I don't remember if I died more times to him or to Lady Maria

Laurence was the last boss I fought. Hard as nails, but I still think the Orphan is harder.

I definitely had more trouble with Laurence than those other two my first time. They all have absurdly high HP, but you can't parry Laurence to tear huge chunks off quickly and relatively safely. Also has a much longer runback if you die, which really annoyed me when I was learning the fight.

Cool music though.

After getting frustrated with the DLC I finally decided to check out Yahar'gul, and holy shit is the base game easier.

Every time that damn fish ogre comes barrelling down the hill and one-shots a player, I think of this picture

Oh yeah definitely. I think in terms of difficulty curve, the DLC is meant to be tackled after you've beaten everything except the final boss.

I think some of the final chalice dungeons are technically the hardest content in the game, outside of NG+.

Welp, Wet Nurse is down. Simon's Bowblade is really, really good against the base game bosses.

Now just to finish up the DLC bosses, reach the Pthumerian Queen, and (uggggggggh) do the well.

If you use the item that aggros enemies on each other (Shaman's Knife?) it makes the well situation significantly easier

Just so you know... the latter chalice dungeons are full of enemies roughly on par with NG+2 difficulty. Luckily, chalice dungeons are always the same difficulty, regardless of what cycle of NG+ you are on! So since (it seems?!) you're trying to get that Platinum trophy, there's no harm in finishing the game first, and then maybe beefing yourself up by playing through some of NG+ first!

I will say my playthrough of NG+ went way faster than the first time through, but I will also say, the latter part of the game is WAY fucking harder, and for that reason, way fucking more fun and satisfying to finish!

Also, the platinum trophy is going to require beating the game multiple times anywayy!!


ALSO! If you haven't played online yet, this is also a good time to do so! I assume you're in the 70-80 level range, and that allows you to help with a very wide range of bosses!

The later Chalice dungeons will give you way more blood echoes than simply playing the main game will, even in NG+, so that's also a valid way to beef up your character.
