Bloodborne Catch-all

Esp when you chase him all around for 15min and then this happens

Uuuuugggggh. I remember raging and deliberately not quitting until I finished the fight because I didn't want to have that barrier to booting up again.

Cheese spoiler for Micolash:

Spoiler:

If you get him under that very opening, rather than trying to drop attack him, use ash and your gun to kill him. He won't leave the room, won't attack you, and won't get out of line of sight. Admittedly, I went through all my ash and most of my blood vials to use the blood bullets (it takes way more bullets than you carry), but in general, if you can wield the Evelyn, you can kill Micolash this way.

If anyone asks what it's like to play a From Software game, this is the video you show them.

Ah, right. I'm going to send it to a couple people I've never convinced to try. That should help.

Rom made me put the game down for over a year. After picking it back up I got roadblocked by both Gehrman and Ludwig.

Oh man, Ludwig was a HUGE roadblock for me, as well.

I'm on my third major roadblock now (having put the game down months ago) in the form of Defiled Amygdala.

I tried picking the game back up but banging my head against those two and grinding for vials just wasn't fun to come back to.

I made the mistake of picking up the DLC in an NG+ playthrough (only one I had) and resorted to actually 3-1ing Ludwig with 2 NPC summons and still managed to lose once.

Later I went back and ended up learning the fight pretty well. But not as well as this guy (LobosJR):

My favorite part of that clip is how he is essentially talking trash to the boss in time to the music.

Well, if you ever want co-op help, just ring me!

I should finish that game, but at this point I doubt I'm going to.

All this talk got me to load the game back up and take a couple swings at Defiled Amygdala. Man, the attempts take so long, and your health is so low. I think my better attempt was at least fifteen minutes, and I only got hit by the one attack that killed me.

That’s definitely a patience fight. Sometimes after a jump you just have to reposition rather than do anything else.

Spoiler:

I assume you know the trick that you are always safe after a jump simply standing still until the jump is over

I don't attack after a jump, using my current strategy. I only attack his arms after an attack. It's a semi-safe but tediously slow strat, and as you know, reduced health means you can be one-shotted at any time.

Might watch some videos later.

I found it easier and safer to go for the back legs.

I'd clearly erased that fight from my memory. Didn't recall it at all until I saw that.

OK, so I watched a video where the player triggered jumps from Amy pretty much on-demand by standing at the end of his tail. Then he'd charge attack the head. Tried that several times one night this weekend, no joy.

Loaded it up tonight, bam! Got him on the first try! Onward!

Dudes on the subreddit are trying to hold a PVP event next weekend. If my life has normalized by then I'll try to join:
