Most challenging boss at SL 1?

For me it was Manus. Never had an issue with him until I fought him without my trusty zweihander and 1500 hp. The low stamina wasn't helping too much either.

I agree Manus although Kalameet close second. Artorias is easy if you get the moveset down but Manus is steroids Artorias.

In fact by buddy and I co-oped Artorias NG+6 SL 5 yesterday and he wasn't too bad.

4 kings and O&S can prove very challenging.

NG+7 4K and O&S are both harder than manus NG+7 solo at SL1.

Are you implying that on New Game the difficulty is reversed? I can understand Four Kings being harder *Shivers* at +7 but not so much S&O.
I just re-applied the MM so I can have another crack at S&O with various conditions. Here's my battle music!

Fitting eh? It's now the official Gfaqs boss killing music!

By the way... what's your setup for Gwyn? Then again if I remember correctly you go to +10 for some equipment variance right? Gahhh I'll be stuck on +1 forever. D:

I never found Manus that hard to dodge. You don't have to kill him fast, and you only have one enemy to worry about. Its a long fight but you never have the WHAT THE F--- moments where ornstein's phantom range hits you THROUGH smough plowing simultaneously.

S&O, you have a whole crap load of things that can go wrong. Two targets with random attacks can get pretty hairy, although I have it down to a science these days. I can take them out in NG+7 at SL10 more than half the time (about 1-3 attempts each run through).

4K is always a DPS race that is hard at low levels, and sometimes they just decide to spam magic and you're screwed.

Manus... never changes. You don't have to kill him fast, and you don't have multiple variables going at once. I found that easier myself.

My S&O strategy wouldn't change at all if I was SL1, since I use pyro to do phase 1.
