How many of you will try to slay this beast on the very first encounter? I know it's possible, but that seems like a lot of punching. I may go with the firebomb to begin with to make it easier, then worry about the pendent/key in NG+.

I'd hope that I can receive the Hammer if I use the bombs. But it has a 46 STR stat so... :(

I wonder just how much damage reduction I'd get for wielding it. It might not be worth it.

its too bad we cant sell weapons/armor as it would give a good soul boost early for those that go through the trouble

You do get the mace for fire bombing. And you can sell things.

I bet you would still get it if you use the bombs. I can't imagine this game being able to distinguish HOW you beat a boss, just that its been slain. Also, from a completionist point of view, this maul will very, very much be worth it lol.

If I do it with my fists and record it can I get a prize from this board?

If you watch it's routine you can chip damage it to death




Spoilers





There is a way back to tutorial level and you fight a stronger version of him but at SL 18 had no chance!
