Use Bone Marrow Ash and shoot Ebrietas in the face, bloodtinge build was by far the easiest time I've ever had with that fight

Amygdala down. I liked how bright Nightmare Frontier is and the visual design, but itís not a very fun level. Amygdala wasnít too hard with a bunch of bone ash, using the Evelyn, and targeting the head.

I wish all the bosses would at least drop a ďboss cold bloodĒ similar to boss Souls so we could at least get a bit of extra lore on some of the bosses.

Celestial Emissary also defeated and I tried a few times on Ebrietas (using the Chikage) but just couldnít quite do it. Did try help a few people as well but we wiped each time. Is there a good, easy way to farm for echoes? I need to restock in vials, bullets, and other consumables.

Upper Cathedral Ward maybe one of my favorite areas (even if it is a bit small). It also answers a very straight forward lore question I had: where are most of the Choir employees? (Answer: theyíve been slaughter by, or turned into, wolves. The Orphanage is completely overrun).

Just an update that this was a great a great spot. They also frequently drop 3 bullets so I was generally getting ~12 bullets per run, which meant I could dump all my blood cash into vials and bone ash.

Upped my arcane just enough to just at 15 arc items. Old Hunters Bone is a little disappointing with how short it lasts. From is pretty stingy with how long buffs last. Itís the same in Sekiro where the candies give you a pretty small stat buff that only lasts 30 seconds (and I think at launch the spirit falls lasted even less).


Also defeated Ebrietas. Itís funny that Evrietasí A Call Beyond is less dangerous (easier to dodge) than Yurieís is and Yurie spams it way, way more than Ebrietas. The run where I won Ebrietas used it twice and every time Iíve helped someone Ebrietas never used it.

The thing with Logarius is that he sucks and is kinda hard whether you are perfectly geared and specced for him or not. Because of his resistances nothing really ďworksĒ on him better than anything else besides parrying. If the one boss youíre weak to is the boss that isnít really weak to anything, that feels ok, and Arcane apparently dumpsters everything else.

Oh I've done 2 99 Arcane runs. Logarius was the only stumbling block for both. I can parry well, but it still takes forever, even doing it that way.

The only time I didnít have a problem with Logarius was my Cursed Chikage hacked dungeon run because the Chikage itself apparently pantses him, or perhaps 55 BLT for Logarius is high.

Logarious has never been a serious roadblock for me even on arcane characters and I donít exactly understand the reputation, heís only scaled for the first half of the main game and doesnít expect you to have 40 points in a damage stat by then so you can just use a physical weapon against him even on an arcane character and it wonít be a nightmare; he also doesnít block anything important for an all arcane build so you can just out-stat him later with more health

For me, i've struggled with his parry timing forever, and its easy to get stuck in a bad pattern of eating his arcane attacks as you make space to heal after whiffing a parry. Also the run back to his arena is among the worst in souls games which means frustration grows very fast as you stew on the way back, and eat a tiny bit of dmg every time as a little needle so you either start at lower health, or eat a vial.

concurrently, a STR or STR/ARC build with Burial Blade utterly annihilates him as you can get into a pattern with the special dodge attack BB has and just drain his health, toss in some parries and you are set.

I havenít had a problem with Logarius since my like.. idk, 3rd playthrough, if Iím doing a STR/quality build, but yeah otherwise heís hard.

Iím trying a bloodtinge build for the first time, idk how Iíve never done one, and I rushed and got Simonís Bow Blade, but I think Iíd rather use a melee weapon as a main weapon, and keep the bow as the secondary weapon. Whatís the quickest one to get? I think ironically the Chikage is locked behind Logarius so I havenít got it yet, but I just remembered that itís in one of those hacked save chalices. Thereís only like, what, 4 or so BLT weapons? Besides guns I mean, so itís gonna be easy to choose. Also gonna get the Bloodletter as Iíve never used it.
