Is it bad that I killed the sentinels on my first playthrough in 1 attempt yet got defeated by the last giant 7 times?
Hafa Ball (3 months ago)
took me about 15 tries. Finally they stopped surrounding me and attacking without any break. I was able to hold out cause I got one low enough in health and he threw his shield which makes it much easier.

3 or 4 times...man, I have tried 101 times (literally, I actually filmed my attempts and there are 85 video files and those were not all tries) and still did not manage to kill them(
TWrecks (6 months ago)
On my first run ever on my first time ever fighting these bosses, i died when there was one sentinel left and she only had a sliver of health left. I could have killed her in one hit. Anyways, these bosses were pretty easy. This is my first souls game ever

Ricky D (6 months ago)

Ajay 1988 (6 months ago)
Ricky D add me up i need help killing the sentenials still fieryfate88 on xbox 360 . but I'll follow your advice on NPC i did see one a woman in the lost bastille i recall
Ricky D (6 months ago)
You should see a summon sign before the mist, its basically white writing on the ground. If you can't see it, you are probably hollowed and need to use a human effigy. Then interact with the sign and you should see an NPC character that you have talked to before, and they will follow you into the boss fight.

You can kill the first ruin Sentinels when u fall down and then wait and let the second one jump to u and then kill him without falling down like the first one and then go down to the third one and kill him it's such an easy thing
Sans The Skeleton (6 months ago)
This is a good to kill the ruin Sentinels seperately

Being patient is key to destroy this gank squad.
Tim Fitzgerald (7 months ago)
Tried to beat this boss all dex no shield on Xbox 360. The lags make dodges harder and their sweeping attacks make it very hard to Dodge. This is after beating ds2 and ds3. And I can say confidently that I struggle the most with this boss

Firebelias12 (9 months ago)
I have half of the health than this and shitty weapons....what should I do?
Artrysa (9 months ago)
This boss is a cakewalk if you got a good shield like the drangleic. If you're going for dodging it's gonna get a bit tricky.

Just soul farm the old nights with the silver serpent ring to upgrade your health.
Vegito Black (10 months ago)
Imagine if we didn't have shields!!!! Omg
Vegito Black (10 months ago)
It's not hard it's just hard FIGHTING 3 FUCKING NINJAS THEESE DUDES JUMP IN THE AIR AND SLASH DOWN ON YOU !!
Vegito Black (10 months ago)
I killed one on my first try not bad.....
jser1213 (11 months ago)
for anyone struggling (which was me for hours) I tried with a greatsword and no chance, tried again double wielding greatsword and curved sword, again, no chance. Tried with great club (no upgrade) = win after three tries. In two hits almost 1/3 of their health is gone, so just destroy the first, get a 2 or 3 hits on the second once it comes up, drop down when the second comes up. After that just focus on the one with less health, be patient and the second one will die EASY. The third then is piece of cake. Sidenote: I then went to Heide's Tower to farm some souls and you be killing em soldiers in two hits

Does anyone know were he got that helmet
kris motionless (1 year ago)
I call bs on the fact they'll lose their shields once they throw them. I've personally seen them throw their shields at the wall, and still have one afterwards.
MODERN CATGAMING (1 year ago)
Help me. Plz comment to tell for help. Thank you.
I'm a casual player so seeing that his shield blocks all the damage I'm just like "Holy shit this guy is powerful"
Groryx (1 year ago)
I've tried this 12 times and still not beat it
oscar123 (1 year ago)
great fight, literally took my 10 hours over almost three days. enjoyed it alot
Kappa K (1 year ago)
Or if you want to be me: 1. Have Greatsword from No Man's Wharf 2. Upgrade it to +4 3. Have the Armor of Aurorus from Maughlin the Armourer 4. Have the Drangleic Shield from Forest of Fallen Giants Done!
Kappa K (1 year ago)
What if I use a halberd?
Ra!El (1 year ago)
I recommend getting the craftsmens hammer which does a ton of damage. then kill the first one, once the second one comes do as much damage as you can then make him fall of the edge through out the fight.
_EthanBoJangle_ (1 year ago)
I really hate this boss, like a lot.
JAZZPUNK (1 year ago)
I feel like the worst player ever... I already died 4 times to those fuckers and I just managed to kill the first one...
JAZZPUNK (1 year ago)
Oh ok. I thought I was just a really bad player ^^'
Paul N. (1 year ago)
Fuck these guys lol. I beat them, but this in my opinion was a cheap boss fight. I'm not salty or anything because As a Soulsborne veteran, I know that you fight them 1v1 on the platform to make the boss fight easier, but fuck these guys. Long ranged weapons, 40% health loss after 1 hit, entire screen jumping attacks, and an overall 3v1 gank. I think the Scholar of the First Sin edition on PS4/Xbox One gave these guys are damage and speed attribute buff.
It only took me 54 tries to kill them : ^)

These guys are giving me turbo cancer.
Si Meta (1 year ago)
Well thanks, yet this isn't much efficient, it requires time and good weapon to deals a decent damage, since you had few opportunity to swing your attack, which not everyone can tolerate, you need a ranged weapon, luckily, the fire bombs deals a good damage, so one should gather around 2100 souls, the giant guardians of the flame tower is a good place, you can buy them from the merchant female in the Frost of the Giants, after killing the first one, go immediately and aim on the other approaching one while he is on the ground, you can at most throw three bombs at him, that will bring quarter his health down, then throw another three after he jumps up to your place, get down, by then, his health will be at half, throw a couple of bombs after he jumps down, then you can deal with them much easier than relaying your melee weapon.

I'll have to be patient and wait for an outside assist on these bastards. They are fast and they have been wiping me out in like two hits. I've died maybe 8 times now. Can't waste any more effigies on the in game phantom.
Nick Roze-Freitas (2 years ago)
Farm some souls up and get some upgraded weapons so you can be more powerful when you try again
Jax Pin (2 years ago)
Damn ruin boss is kinda tough. Unless you divide and conquer. Kinda hard when there's 3 of them.

JazzMan (2 years ago)
+semit wolf Become human and summon the NPC phantom (in one of the small cells just before the fog wall), this is one of the rare instances when one is actually helpful in this game. You shouldn't have too much trouble.
Gary Martin (2 years ago)
Dont bother with this worthless game. Dark souls is the better one, don't waste money on this "sequel"
xMinteee (2 years ago)
Dark souls is better, but this is still an excellent game.
ARKIO 5896 (3 years ago)
Man i hate this boss its so stupidly done.So if you are playing dual wield and you sold all shields u are fucked by the spinning attack and if u are going all dex and stamina they most of the time 1-2 hits to kill you,in short at least its optional.
SwordedGun (3 years ago)
Im on ng+ but i still think this is one of the worst bosses in dks2. I mean 3 fucking bosses, everyone are the same, they have the same shitty moveset and ofc like 50% of the bosses in the dks2 they are normal enemies later...

How do I get there/summon an AI companion?

I love the difficulty of Dark Souls, but my god, the fucking journey you have to take whenever you attempt this boss, only to be immediately killed so that you have to do it ALL OVER AGAIN, makes me want to kill one of the developers.

What most people don't realize is that you don't have to fight the ruin sentinels. Just do No Man's Wharf and then go to the Lost Bastille from there then use that bonfire and put in a pharros lockstone in the pharros contraption in the second building past the breakable wooden barrier that cover a hole in the wall. Fro there there should be a cage elevator that takes you to sinner's rise.

It's really not that hard, just use a mace or another blunt weapon and a good shield. Plus once they are at half hp you can stunlock them.
Aaron Davidson (3 years ago)
They still block after their shield is gone. Just as well as with the shield i might add.
Julia Lopez (3 years ago)

I made the mistake of continuing onto the lost bastille with 22357 souls I'm not even joking. I got to these guys used a high level summon but one of their shield attacks fucked me up and I didn't have time to heal

if i beat them first go by accidentally falling down and versing all three of them do i get bragging rights? because i just did and i have a big ol smile on my face, using the tactics they gave tho

If you're having trouble then summon Pilgrim Bellclaire, she gets hardcore on the Sentinels as long as you keep them occupied.  
TheTomtaru (3 years ago)
Or you can stay on the ledge and lure them up, they'll jump up of you try to attack them with long rage spells/arrows/knives...
Nico las (3 years ago)
This fight was beyond easy. But that is only because sword and shield players have the advantage. So don't be sad, magic users! I have yet to beat the rooftop gargoyles after 20 attempts, and I'm sure that felt like a warm up to anyone with magic at their disposal. Survive, fellow hollows!

"easy mode". Its called a better shield an more stamina

i had an easy time fighting two at top, instead of going below. definitely because the two were timing their attacks at almost the same time. i still died though. picked the wrong time to strike.
