does the Underpants Dance
Old King Allant might still be my favorite Souls final boss of the whole series, and I already love the Gwyn fight quite a bit (its only real competition for the title, imho).

Yeah it feels like they had real expectation with only Demon's Souls that people would keep delving into more NG+ cycles to run into those tendency events and finish upgrading their favorite stuff instead of sitting and farming or manipulating tendency manually in a given run. The weapon scaling was also just way more extreme relative to base damage. Like a ton of unique weapons don't even get base damage increases on upgrade.The last time I played I picked up the Dragon Bone Smasher and barely upgraded it, and I just flattened everything anyway.
But on the other hand: this is only "bullshit" until you realize all you have to do is literally run up the path after they fire and then go to the right. The knight on the left won't be able to hit you past a certain point. It's not nearly as unfair as people make it out to be.I mean the definitive bullshit moment in the games are the Anor Londo bow silver knights guarding the only path forward, so narrow you MUST get at least one of them out of the way while both shoot you with arrows that will almost certainly knock you off the ledge if they don't kill. It's a moment Miyazaki has publicly laughed about for its ridiculous unfairness.
That point of safety from the left is after you get past the knight on the right. There's some obstruction in the way of the left knight on the run up, but nothing obstructing it once you're up there, so both do definitely have clear shots at you while you're doing whatever you've decided to do to deal with it.But on the other hand: this is only "bullshit" until you realize all you have to do is literally run up the path after they fire and then go to the right.
