    There's a +/- in the righthand corner of the post window. The window with the posted text in it, to the left of the avatar.

    I'm gonna have to throw in with the Capra Demon. On my first playthrough, that guy got me more than any other boss. Took me soooo long to beat him. Was offline, though. By the time you get to the Four Kings, you can just tank n' spank it. It is difficult though. Still, Capra gave me more of a hard time. I still hate that passage with the Capras in the Demon Ruins.

    Only if when I "talk" to you, instead of saying: "hmm... there is nothing to see here", you say to me:"hmm... you can access a great tree in blighttown, follow the way down, reach a lake where you will find a dragon who trains people to be dragons themselves".

    Deal?

However, I died at least 3 times in every playthrough by Ceaseless Discharge. Seriously, in every playthrough he one shotted me with his fire breath attack.

    is funny. super ornstein killed me a lot. i didnt even summoned solaire( newbie mistake) and i think my blood presure went up. but after that i did co op for that fight a lot. super ornstein has a lot of moves. the one i hate the most was the lighting impale because i some times made the mistake to roll to the sides and he always gets you if you do that.

    I found Crossbreed Priscilla quite challenging. It took me almost four attempts at her before I finally realized her footprints.

    Also due to poor planning and lack of magic defense, more than one of my toons has spend a day or two on the Demon Firesage.

    I finally voted myself as I was debating the question with the options on this first part of the poll and I had to go with the Demon Firesage, on newgame+, I think he killed me 4 or 5 times every other boss was either killed 1st try or second attempt, you'd think after fighting a boss with that same mechanic over and over I'd have it nailed down and that's what I thought rolling up to him, I was very wrong. lol

    In every playtrough I´ve been trying to kill Capra Demon with my skills...

    but after a death streak where in COD I would have turned of the xbox long ago, I just buy endless of fire bombs and end up using the famous glitch/bug to kill him... :scratch:

    I just can´t figure him out

    I vote 4kings, was easily the hardest boss I've fought so far in NG+, not even S and O bothered me, heck didn't even die, 4kings though went 1/5.

    Four Kings, without a doubt.

    My word, the amount of times I had to trudge through New Londo. It was miserable. It's the one part of the game I continually dread.

    Yea, maybe because you can only use one ring in battle, or because their attack type is 50% phisical, 50% magic/occult , maybe because they are fast and can predict your moves, not sure but the abyss is really not a good place to fight.

    Ceaseless Discharge without the "trick" is a pain in the ass, and I really really hate bed of chaos, who can troll me for hours on any of my characters I make ...

    The only boss I really have trouble with is the centepede demon.. That thing.. I don't even know why but it's just better at the game than me. I just have so much trouble killing it. Only hard boss before NG+6 imo. (thats when 4kings really start to get.. mean..)

    I don't get why capra has so many votes.. I have absolutely no trouble with him anymore..

    And even on my first playthrough he only got me three times, before i figured he could one shot me through my block with his overhead attack silly

    Its probably because of its location... being in tight quarters! He is also the first boss where you are actually outnumbered from the get go... 3 (boss & 2 dogs) vs 1

    That's exactly why I'm doing the polls in the fairest way possible, I've never had an issue with the four kings and thought the bed of chaos was laughable but other bosses have kicked me in the teeth numerous times.

    Actually the only times I've had a problem with the four kings is when I was helping someone else and the host would die over and over

    The capra demon also charges at you straight away and hes not that far off from the start which can probably throw some people off, I know my first time fighting him I survived by a mini panic attack and rolled and kept rolling until I hit the stairs and was thinking oh sweet developers, high ground.

    It's those damn dogs! I had trouble with Capra on my first run through because I hadn't yet figured out poise. Try Capra with zero poise, where one dog bite equals certain death. Woof!

    I didnt know about poise either, but i just used my shield A LOT!

    I have to admit, i accidentally discovered the high ground worked wonders on my 4th time trying to get rid of dogs, then just had a proper fight with the capra demon.. He's still the only enemy on the game that makes me feel like it's a proper duel
