Wow, you killed two angels? I accidentally found one of their “anchors” and killed it, but man was I ever not going to go fucking around in that swamp while getting mangled by the lightspears to find another one.
That boss…yeah, I tried it once or twice before calling in not one but two sunbros. That was at my nadir with the game, like man fuck this it’s just getting absurd, I just wanna be done. It wasn’t until I got well through the city proper that I felt good about things again. People talk about DS2 being just “hard for the sake of being hard,” but I (as a non-DS2 completer) still think that the Ringed City is just sadistic and mostly not really “fun”.
