So after finals, I’ve finally gotten around to uploading this bloody thing. It took forever, but here you go. This time, and this is probably the only time, you’ll get to see what it’s like to be summoned into someone else’s world. Remember, you can’t use an Estus Flask if you happen to be a Phantom, so you will need to rely on other methods to heal yourself. Other items still work perfectly find though.

Sadly, I picked the worst time to be a phantom. Darkroot Garden is littered with loot for you to pick up, but players summoned into another world can’t see any of it. Probably to keep people from griefing one another, but it does make filming from someone else’s world a little difficult. That said, I like the Garden. It’s a nice little place that doesn’t overstay it’s welcome, and branches off into some other nice places. You can go to join the Forest Hunter Covenant (or just use them as good soul farm), or go to fight Great Wolf Sif. Ultimately, we decided to go to Catacombs to show off the Gravelord Servant covenant and the Pinwheel boss. We’re also going to show a bloody ton of shortcuts and cheese to get through a confusing level, so pay attention.

As for the two bosses in the video, Hydra is probably the most boring. If you don’t have a magic build or a ton of arrows, you’re going to be stuck wadding back and forth in the water trying to smack his heads, and as you saw in the video, that gets progressively harder the more heads you cut off. You can mitigate this by getting the Rusty Iron Ring from Northern Undead Asylum, but neither of us are quite ready to go back there. Plus you aren’t allowed to summon in the Asylum, so it’d just be me.

As for Moonlight Moth Butterfly, I do apologize for how rediculously buggy the boss is for online play. It almost never syncs up between host and client, so you have instances where I’m standing still and it’s shooting off into the aether, but is still able to hit me. Other than it’s obvious bugs, this boss is 100% magic damage, which can be a death call to anyone without either high magic resist or high health to tank it. But, do you remember those broken wooden shields some of the classes started with? Yeah, those things have about 70% magic resist on them, and are extremely useful during this fight. Other than that, block it’s needle spam, and dodge the slow moving triple shot. I was almost 1-hit killed by that in my world, so it will be worth it to strip down if you’re in heavy armor to have better dodge rolls. Once you kill the moth butterfly it’s off to Andrei to hand over the Divine Ember. But where does that key go… I wonder.

Final note: Moonlight Butterfly has some of the best music in the game. Hauntingly beautiful, but it doesn’t hold a candle to a latter boss. Until next time!
