Dark Souls 3 has had yet another first happen to it, this time related to the Dark Souls 3 bosses. Redditor Sylveski (known on Twitch as Letofski), a Dark Souls 3 player, took it upon himself to kill almost every one of the bosses just using his bare hands.
Considering Dark Souls 3 has a lot of bosses, with a lot of health, and your fists do piddly damage on average, the fact that Sylveski was able to do this and only in around eight hours is fairly impressive. However, Sylveski worked around this problem by leveling in Strength and Dexterity, the two character traits that govern how much damage your fists do.
Took about 8 hours, one unbroken session. Actually kinda proud of this one — especially because I got Nameless down first try.
I’m going to try taking it to NG+, but I have absolutely no idea how that’ll fair against…mostly Pontiff, the big cock-blocker of challenge runs. We’ll see, I guess. I’ll be trying for a while today (on www.twitch.tv/letofski shameless self-promotion). Hopefully it all goes well?
The only boss that Sylveski used a weapon on during his run is Yhorm the Giant, a damage sponge of a boss that brings back memories of Demon’s Souls’s Storm King boss fight, which required you to pick up a special weapon, in order to do damage to him. Only this time, the boss in question can’t fly.
Sylveski had put up the entire eight hour video on YouTube before today, but unfortunately YouTube’s copyright system (where’s the fair use, YouTube?!) muted the entire thing for a single song that he played, so now you can catch the entire thing on Twitch, here.
Maybe soon, someone will kill all of the Dark Souls 3 bosses simply by wearing the Thorn Knight armor, and kill all of them (except Yhorn of course) by just rolling into them and letting the armor’s spikes do the work.
