My last wild strategy, flee, dodge and black-bomb like crazy, isn't working.
The gameīs signature boss fight Iīd say.
Iīd be quite surprised if these dudes wouldnīt win every "Dark Soulsī hardest boss fight on first playthrough" poll out there .

You donīt have to eliminate anyone on the way to them, just run .
A tip for when you decide to go at them again:

Anything to temporarily get me out of these Anor Londo tower staircases.
Speaking of dickering about,

For what itīs worth, on my first playthrough O&S prompted me to do a world tour of sorts as well .
At any rate, itīs an amazing encounter imo.

P.S.: If you think Iīm spoiling too much, better say it, somehow Iīm finding it hard to resist this stuff.
