Fucking hell glad I"m not the only one. Came in here to bitch about Black Cerebus.
I have enjoyed the hell out of this game. This is the first Souls style game that has clicked for me and I have loved the atmosphere, the combat, story, and pretty much everything about this game. Every time I have died I could tell what I needed to do to improve and felt it was fair.
Now I"m at the brick wall that is Black Cerebus. I wouldn’t mind it if I wasn’t doing complete crap damage with any one hander I try, so it takes me forever to widdle him down, and just one mistake causes a 3 hit stun lock kill unless I’ve overhealed myself in preparation. I think I’ve gotten him down to half health. All my gear is MK3, the highest I’m getting components for so far so it’s not a gear problem. I"m using a high proficiency scaling weapon with level 19 weapon proficiency. I can only take one swing at him before I have to dodge because otherwise the 2nd hit has a very very high chance of causing me to get 3 hit comboed.
The mech is also complete bullshit as well and having to try and line him up so I can get both of those tanks blown up is utterly terrible with the camera we have.
So aggravated right now. I think I’ve been on him for 3 hours with at least one break in between, it’s been so long I have 110k scrap laying at his feet (I gain ~4-5k each time I walk towards him). I have zero idea why I can’t kill him faster, all my gear is mk 3 (highest I’m getting components for).
If it wasn’t for the fact I"m 25 hours in (played through the first DLC too) and have loved everything up until now I would have dropped it, though I’m getting to the point where I still might just nuke it out of anger. I’ve never been so angry at a video game before.
Edit 45 minutes later and finally beat him. I had several times where I would have beaten him but I couldn’t line the rockets up right so he kept summoning more mechs while he healed.
