Capra was a MASSIVE wall for me, and responsible for putting me off the game on my very first attempt in the X360 era.The Last Ginja wrote: ↑Thu Jun 20, 2019 10:33 pmDark Souls on the PS4...Why oh why did I do this to myself? It's a bloody great game, but I'm censored at it.
Yet even though I'm on my 10th attempt at the same boss I still want to go back for more. I don't seem to be able to make any progress with this current boss, The Capra Demon though. Every time I got into his area he and his dog friends pummel me. He seems the first cheap enemy I've come across. I will get this bastard though.
I even took my first foray into streaming last week and had 5 mates watching me, which helped me persevere to this point. One had played it before and gave me tips. The rest just took the censored out of me!!!
Trick is to run straight past him when you first enter the arena, and straight up the stairs. Tuck yourself into the corner there, and the dogs will attempt to make their way up, usually one at a time. See them off, then he'll start to do the odd jumping attack at you with a huge pause after it, it's just a case of doing the plunging attack on Cappy, legging it back up the stairs, rinse and repeat. Keep at it, you WILL get it.
I went from abandoning it on my first attempt, to completing it on 360 to New Game ++, then again on PS4, then finally last year, my sirst ever solo playthrough. It was tremendously satisfying, though I doubt I'll attempt it with any of the others.
