Defeating Red Hellkite required to access sunlight altar?

#1SheikahPosted 10/18/2011 1:43:31 AM
I have the faith requirement for the sunlight covenant, so need to get to the altar. I know it's past the Hellkite, but running in his general direction generally means instant death for me even with a decent setup.

Must it be defeated to get past him? Thanks.

I ran passed him. Wait by the wall opposite the stairs until he lands on the bridge then run for it. Dont forget to open the gate for easier access.

No, you do not actually have to beat him to get past him.

This will show you how to get past the drake without actually killing it. You have to skip through the video though.

Use a bow, but you'll burn a lot of arrows. I'd personally try dashing through.

shoot him in the head from the other side opposite the stairs with a bow, and run past him when he jumps down.

then open the gate for easy access.

and if you can, take him down!

i assumed that it suicides or some npc kills it at some point in the game because i was standing in the undead parish and recieved a whole lotta souls once and went to look and it was gone
