Dark Souls Washing Pole – Ornstein and Smough Boss Fight

July 2, 2012

Here is the video of the boss fight but this time we take out Ornstein first.

In a previous post I claimed that this boss fight is easier if you take out Smough first.  I feel like clarifying since this video is much longer and I heal much more.  After trying both methods, my final thoughts are that the developer did an excellent job of balancing the fight regardless of which boss you take out first.  You are in for a challenging and rewarding fight no matter who dies first.

Giant Smough is easier than giant Ornstein, He lacks the speed and ranged attacks of giant Ornstein.  However, the beginning of the fight is quite more difficult.  Human sized Ornstein is very fast and difficult to damage.  Your best bet is to try to separate Ornstein from Smough and then concentrate your attacks on him.

Enjoy the video and hope to hear your thoughts on the Smough versus Ornstein-first discussion.
