Dark Souls Washing Pole – Demon Firesage

August 9, 2012

Here is the video for the boss fight with the Demon Firesage, the last iteration of the Asylum Demon.

Washing Pole Strategy
This boss can be beaten with the same strategy we used on the Stray Demon. Get close to him, bait a stomp attack and maneuver to his backside. With his back to you, you can avoid the Demon’s AOE magic attacks, which are quite powerful. He has extremely good range with his weapon. Be careful as you approach him head on. He takes both fire and lightning damage, although you would think he is inmune to fire based on his name and the fire blanket surrounding him. Two handed attacks with the washing pole will help you take him down quickly. Also, be aware of your surroundings. The rectangular play area is littered by trees and branches that can trap you or prevent you from circling him.

Other Strategies
Ranged attacks work well once his back is to you. Do not launch projectile attacks while facing him because he can strike you from very far away with his hammer, and you will risk damage from his AOE attack. You may be able to use a tree or branch as cover. He may even get stuck in such a location, making him an easy prey to ranged attacks.
