Nito!? Weird, very weird. He has an AoE attack of some kind, right? Tough to dodge?
I thought I'd try the Gravelord Sword Dance miracle on the Capra Demon; I imagined it would be prefect for him. However the swords seem to only appear out of the ground you are standing on (that little ledge) so it was useless.
I am making a poor fist of this playthrough. The Gaping Dragon has just killed me twice, for shame.
Nah, his AoE is not the issue, easy enough to back off. The problem is getting so far: his gravelord sword dance is killing me before I ever see him. It has really odd dodge timing, since you hear the noise from it, have to wait... wait a bit longer... and then dodge. It's easy enough to dodge when you see him, but when he's on the other end of the room I don't see his sword movement. Also, he has this uncanny ability to start his **** sworddance everytime I want to take an estus, which means I stand there like an idiot while that spike comes out of the ground. Since you take damage from falling already, I usually take an estus at the beginning but then he starts spamming his sworddance and if I wait too long with the estus his skeleton minions are ganging up on me. Ah, also had a great occasion where he started his sworddance just when I started with a backstab on a skeleton. My invincibility frames for the backstab ended just right when that spike shot out of the ground, killing me instantly. I was hammering the button to dodge but nothing happened since I was locked in the backstab animation. Awesome.
Just did Sif. Clean kill, no problems at all. Having a go at four kings now. Can't be much worse than Nito currently is.
Hey guys, i discovered Dark Souls last summer and was hooked for many, many days! The dlc didnt take long to finish so im pretty much done with it and am waiting on Blops2. Once you figure out a good way to take down a boss they really arent much challenge again. For nito i figured out how to strafe him and hit him in the back side, taking out good chunks of damage, and blocking his blasts when they came. Having your estus flask to 20 makes most of the bosses fairly doable. If you have any questions about the 4 kings id be happy to help. The first playthrough they were simple, didnt even blink at them, then the next times are harder. The dlc was good, just really short....

Alright: what's the best equipment to beat them at Soul Level 1?
I have beaten them time and time again with regular characters, but with SL1 it's a bit tricky to say the least. A lot of attempts failed so far because the first King would keep on doing his shockwave attack, forcing me to back up a bit, so that by the time he's finally falling the second is already taking shots at me and the thirds is not far away. Two and eventually three of them are a nightmare to deal with at SL1.
LoL sorry i just got through reading the last couple of pages, shoulda done that first, doh. I know the four kings are harder with a summons so cant suggest that as much help. But i know the witch is available normally. Gonna be tough because i just chug and hug, basically just whacking away until they are dead, but thats with 1900 hp. I know other people have done the lvl 1 run through over at Dark Souls forums you could get some insight no doubt, there were 3 or 4 peeps doing it when i read it...
