Annoying version of Cleric Beast. :)
What's on your mind?
Hooooowheee, wow, this boss... Is really good. This boss is really difficult, but not for some stupid reason like most other "difficult" bosses in this game. I really like this boss, there's only one other boss in this game that is difficult, but fair, and that's Lady Maria. Ludwig's attacks are choreographed really well, his design is really good, the arena isn't bad but it ain't anything special, he is REALLY hard but surprisingly fair, most of the time, it never felt like it was the game's fault that I died, it almost always felt like it was 100% my fault. He is just a really good, fun boss, and literally the moment I beat him, even though I was super heated after dying a ton of times, I almost immediately wanted to fight him again.
But this boss isn't perfect, I have an issue with two of his attacks; his stompy stompy attack (first phase), and that attack where he walks backward and swings his sword twice (second phase).
For the first attack that I listed, I dislike it because, in this fight, you are meant to be REALLY aggressive, so with this attack, it comes outta nowhere and since you're bound to be right up against him, you do NOT have enough time to get out of the range of the attack, you also can't dodge the attack, so the only way to not get hit by it is to be out of range of it, but that's impossible since you need to be very aggressive for this fight, so you are guaranteed to get hit at least once by that attack.
For this attack, it is basically the same deal as the other attack, it isn't choreographed well, it is just extremely frustrating to get hit by that attack.
But other than those two attacks, this is an extremely fair boss with a cool design, a fun fight, a HARD, but fair fight, with generally good attacks. Now I can't wait to fight the one other good boss in the DLC!
Extremely tedious, not fun in the slightest, what more is there to be said? It's actually quite funny as directly after this boss, there's a really good boss. It makes me wonder if the devs knew that the boss wasn't great so they put a really incredible one right after to cheer the player up, lol.
The blood starved beast is pretty cool but he can be a little hard to beat if anybody has any suggestions on how to beat it pls comment
Aight, just fought Martyr Logarius fo' the first time, aaaaand... He's a pretty good boss, he choreographed his moves pretty well, not as flawlessly as Guardian Ape, but still, not bad, I think he looks awesome, and that cutscene of him getting off of the throne was really cool, just overall a really good boss. There was only one thing that ticked me off about this boss was that, in my first attempt, I tried shooting him several times, and my character shot above him... So that was pretty obnoxious, but that only happened for my first attempt, but it did cheat me out of a first try victory, sooo yeah.
Really liked that boss, thought it was really cool, along with being in the best area in the game: Cainhurst Castle, like HOLY COW that area is EASILY the best area in the game, SO COOL. The visuals of that place are AMAZING, and when you arrive there and turn around and see that the horses that brought you there are dead and the carriage is dysfunctional, as well as the bridge being destroyed, was just really neat. The enemies are mostly pretty good, I didn't much care for the mosquitos or the gargoyles, but other than that, they were pretty good.
Overall, I really love that area, thought the boss was really good, most of the enemies weren't bad, definitely my favorite area in the game, by far.
Yeah, so on my first playthrough I didn't fight since I wanted to be almost totally blind so I didn't know he existed. And umm... I think I might've been a liiiittle bit overleveled for him, I literally killed him in like, 6 hits, so I couldn't really tell if he was good or not, since I killed him way too fast. I mean at the very least I think he looks pretty sick. But other than that I have no clue if he's good or not, and I doubt I ever will since I'm pretty sure this playthrough (my second) will be my last, tbh, the only reason I'm playing it for a second time is because when I killed Moon Presence it automatically went into NG+ which was the most obnoxious thing ever since I still wanted to do the dlc, so I took a really long break until I was feeling up to playing it again and here I am.
I also fought the Amygdala for the first time, that boss was... Meh, not great but not really baaad, I found a way to cheese him on like my third attempt so yeah...
Do enemies upscale in strength further with each new game after NG+? It would seem weird to me, since in NG+, all the enemies are already increased to near-endgame level, with endgame levels themselves being above even that; They're already scaled for 10+ weapons and skills that have reached the soft cap and/or hard cap.
Still, I want to be extra sure.

Worst to Best
22. Micolash - for obvious reasons
21. Witch of Hemwick - very underwhelming and easy
20. Celestial Emissary - feels very lazy, just a large version of existing enemy
19. The One Reborn - very dissapointingly easy after a hyped up cutscene
18. Darkbeast Paarl - i hit his legs and he died, looked cool at least
17. Cleric Beast - king of iconic for being first boss and a halfway decent fight too.
16. Moon Presence - ‘that was the final boss?’ - me
15. Mergos Wet Nurse - looked cool but too easy for a potentially final boss
14. Rom - easy but at least the spider minions gave me a little bit of a challenge
13. Living Failures - good parry practice i guess
12. Vicar Amelia - a solid beast fight, first time using fire paper
11. Father Gas-Coin - a pretty fun fight, not overly challenging
10. Shadow of Yarnham - last section with the giant snakes freaked me out and the three of them were a decent challenge
9. Amygdala - first one to really push me to strategise by going for head attacks and viscerals
8. Ludwig - pretty intense boss fight and a sick second phase ans that jump attack is bullshit
7. Gehrman - good hunter boss, tough parries
6. Lady Maria - really intense boss fight, even harder parries
5. Laurence First Vicar - forced me to play his second ohase with patience, gave me trouble
4. Blood Starved Beast - tought me to parry and was quite challenging
3. Martyr Logarius - very intense, put lots of pressure on me and one of my favourite fights
2. Kos Orphan - really fun and intense, edge of my seat, strategy and backstabs, awesome
1. Ebrietus - hardest bastard, best feeling of relief when i beat him just wow

What do you think about this boss? Personally, she is my favorite boss, I LOVE their design, it is SO awesome looking, and I personally just think they're a really fun, well-designed (mechanically), and a good boss. The only thing I don't like about them is the one attack where everything gets all dark, and you basically just have to run away for the next 5 minutes, everything else about this boss I love though. What about you though?
The One Reborn
Mergo's Wet Nurse
Rom, The Vacuous Spider (worst in the whole game)
Witch of Hemwick
Shadows of Yharnam
Orphan of Kos
All of the bosses I didn't list weren't bad, but nothing special. Or I didn't fight them.
Are most of the the bosses in this game really mediocre or just plain awful? I mean, there are some pretty great bosses, but look at Sekiro, where almost every single boss is a banger.
I need help with shadow of yharnam. Danielson3823 is the psn
Greetings fellow hunters,
is the pale blood guiding you well?
I pray your dream doesn't end just yet as it brought me hope seeing the sun hasn't risen yet on this haven.
I leave this not here in hopes the night doesn't end just yet.
More specifically, when the Healing Church and the first hunters were founded, and how it relates to the Fishing Hamlet, because, frankly, when everything is taken into account, there seem to be a few contradictions.
First, the guy in the FH says that Byrgenwerth was the one to have mutilated and experimented on the inhabitants and Kos, searching their skulls for eyes, a sign of insight, which Byrgenwerth was all about. However, it's also implied the hunters had already existed by this point, which means the Healing Church, led by Laurence, had also existed, as it's due to its blood ministrations that the Scourge began and the hunters were formed, as well as the fact that the Rakuyo is there.
But the HC had given up on insight, hadn't it? They were all about the old blood, and using it to evolve humanity. And Laurence was also a part of the Fishing Hamlet event, which doesn't make sense. If it was the Healing Church, why did the guy say Byrgenwerth? If they were searching for insight, it would make sense that it was Byrgenwerth, but why was Laurence there, as well Gehrman and Maria, hunters by that point, who are implied to have followed him and not Willem?
On top of that, I'm confused about Gehrman being the first hunter. Again, it's implied that he'd followed Laurence rather than staying in Byrgenwerth (or am I wrong?). He was the first one to notice it was blood ministrations causing the Scourge (though Willem might have also known about it), an formed the first hunters. And so, did he split off from the Healing Church, and it's because of that he isn't the First Hunter of the Healing Church, instead of Ludwig? If so why was he with the HC in the Fishing Hamlet? If he did stay with Laurence, why isn't he known as the first hunter of the HC?
Please help me understand. Grant me insight!
