The Pursuer is kicking my ass because I'm a slow knight and I can't parry for shit.

After noting page after page of an argument based on the lunacy of how there is no way to win the game except to dodge/stab, why would then choose not to dodge/stab, lose, and then whine about it? If you're not going to use the winning strategy, don't be surprised when you lose!

I play Knight too, and yes, I suck at parry, and yes, dodging is too slow. Tanking should be a viable option to dodge, but apparently it's not. Why is there a tank class in a game in which tanking doesn't work?

Well I could have blocked my way to victory using a big shield, but that's boring. He was a pain in the ass because he had a decent health pool, hit hard and had an annoying move set, so I could scratch away at him but one mistake and you're fucked. Dodging doesn't necessarily work well against him either, unless you have a good amount of immunity frames in your roll or you memorise his move set beyond what is required for most early bosses.

There's also the ballistas, and I tried using them but he always moved too fast for me to set it up properly.

In the end I just summoned someone with a lightning range attack and cheesed it. Only boss so far that I haven't enjoyed at all.

The most effective method to beating the Pursuer is parrying him in front of the ballista, and then shooting him with it. No dodging or stabbing required.

Yeah. Problem was I suck at parrying.

I guess I'm up to the Lost Sinner now. I'm afraid to fight her.

Yeah. I've read some threads where people refer to the boss as a her. I think she's behind the mist at the end of that water filled hallway.. but I don't know yet.

No boss is when you know them.

Trying to kill the gargoyles. I can stay alive forever against them if I want, but it's hard to do damage to them without getting myself killed.

Sounds like you need to use a faster weapon or a completely different approach.

I'm using my broadsword +2. I guess I could use something faster but it would take even longer to kill one. I want to summon someone to help, because 3 at a time takes far too long to kill, but I'm constantly being invaded.

Belfry Luna is a pretty stupid zone, I think. I had to go offline just to kill the damn bell keeper.

Na.
