How the hell do I approach these guys? I've managed to get Ornstein dead a few times, but then Smough charges me twice in a row (and I can't manage to hide behind a pillar), and essentially one hits me.
And when I killed Smough first, Ornstein's attacks PENETRATED the pillar I was behind, my shield/stamina defenses and just knocked me, in two hits.
Do I just keep doing what I'm doing? I have a new strategy for when Ornstein is dead; bait Smough into using his smash attacks (everything but the charge one essentially).
If I kill Smough first, I really don't think I can even approach Ornstein without getting KO'd.
EDIT: As for the freezing and such, it was the cd from what I gathered. I exchanged the cd and it stopped happening. Little side note for people who've read my topics.
<25% is what you want for fast roll. <50% is midroll.
Kill Smough. Then park yourself under Ornstein's crotch and wail away or torch him with pyro or fire weapons. When he jumps up to butt-slam roll away from him. If you are right under his crotch, Ornstein can't hit you.
I used to have an account in 2002, but Gamefaqs ate it.
