Smough and Orenstein
Posted: Posted December 2nd, 2017 by Jet Presto

Man, I forgot how much I hate these guys. I usually hate two-on-one fights because I find them inherently unfair, but I also get that they put summoning in the game for a reason. No where do I feel like the game actively *wants* me to summon than Smough and Orenstein. I've noticeably improved in every boss on this playthrough, save this one. I beat the Belltower Gargoyals alone. Got through Capra Demon in an hour or two. Only got killed by Quelaag three or four times. Only even took a couple of hits from the Iron Golem, never dying. It's all satisfying and exactly why I love Dark Souls: you can easily spot your own improvement throughout the game.

But I still can't fucking do shit against these dudes!

Anyone of you weird "good at Dark Souls" guys want to help me out at some point this weekend?

I am both weird and good at Dark Souls!

The first game can be a bit finicky with summons but I may very well have a character near enough yours in level for it to work.

Never mind. Thanks for the offer @Famov, but I somehow managed to fucking do it. Not completely on my own, of course. After - no joke - 4 wasted humanities in which literally EVERY FUCKING TIME I REVERSED MY HOLLOWING and set off to summon Solaire and try on our own, I was invaded by another player and promptly killed, I finally managed to not get invaded long enough to pull it off with just Solaire (which might not sound like a big deal, but last time, I needed Solaire *and* another player to take them out - which was a 3-2 fight until it was a 3-1 fight. This time Solaire died right after Smough, and I got to fight Orenstein one on one.

Fuuuuuck. It is funny though. Anor Londo has been the perfect training ground for learning to parry. I have always been so bad at it that I never bothered to try, but I can reliably parry all the knights, both with spears and swords. It's funny to see that I am sooooo much better at Dark Souls than even a few months ago...but that I'm also no where near good enough to be remotely competitive against other players. (I usually just kill myself to save time.)
