How to beat Dragonslayer Armour

Name: Dragonslayer Armour
Area: Lothric Castle
The Closest Bonfire: Dragon Barracks
Basic Rewards: Soul of Dragonslayer Armour, 64,000 Souls, unlocks a path toward Prince Lothric.

Dragonslayer Armour is a unique boss, as it is the only one that carries a shield. You can expect him to use it a lot. His shield attacks are quite devastating and they usually knock you back. In order to defeat him easily, you’ll want to lock on him and get close. His attacks (normal and lighting ones) are rather easy to dodge if you don’t get caught in his relentless combo attacks. Be patient and avoid them at all cost. Only attack once you are really certain it is the right time. The safest area is next to his right leg and a little behind the left.

Remember that you are fighting on a long bridge with a fountain in its center. Use this fountain to avoid the attacks once you are low on HP. Be aware of the bridge’s edges, as they don’t have a fence here and there (the boss can destroy them) and you can drop down. At some point, the boss’ helper will start shooting down firebombs from the air. They are easy to move away from.
