I'm fairly new to dark souls and was wondering if anyone could tell me how to cut off boss tails and or give me tips as well. I shot off the dragons tail but didn't cut off the gargoyle tail. Thanks

I'm pretty sure you can't cut off the gargoyles tail. --- GT. nnythekiller Stoic wanderer

It's pretty self-explanatory. Just aim for the tail and eventually it will come off. --- Pokemon Black FC: 3739 8949 4163 Xbox GT and Steam ID: BlazeHero

you can, its how you get the axe.
TC: just attack the tails. it doesnt give you much feedback, but they will usually fall off. --- You can thank Reagan for indirectly funding the Colombian XBL account theft ring

So should I not target the enemy, or can you target the tail automatically?

1) Run around to the tail
2) Swing your sword
3) Tail falls off

I recommend summoning Soltaire to distract the gargoyle, and then turning off autolock and running to the back of the gargoyle. the tail comes off in about 2-5 hits, so it's pretty easy. The axe is pretty disappointing though. --- "And then it was all over. The storm seemed to lose its frenzy. The ragged clouds gave way to the stars above."

If you're really wanting the axe, let me tell you, it's not a good weapon at all. --- GameFaqs message boards, you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy...

Isn't that axe one of the weapons needed for the achievement/trophy? Plus chopping the tail removes some of the harder attacks to dodge, it's worth it to me just for that. --- Wolverine4545 "You remind me of the people who always say beauty is on the inside...."
