Posted: mar 30, 2011 4:23 am
How do you defeat the king as I defeated the Black Knight guarding the door to the Royal Family Mausoleum and using the Mausoleum key I see the old King whose standing with his back turned to the alter where a large sword is embedded into the surface and he speaks to me about proving myself says as he wants me to show my strength and prowess?
I get a few shots at him, but he is swift and much faster and go down, but I shut the game before I die so I will not lose my life but he will not let me proceed further?
What can I do?
ive wanted to try to lead him away, dodge his attack, then try to steal the swor...

Use kurnai to poison him works well and when hes not focused on you and walking away
attack him and when he turns run and repeat just dont run too far cause he'll heal himself
quite a bit or whenever you get the psn up again try to get people to join you

There are a couple of cheap but easy ways to kill him.
1- The backstab strategy: First you'll need the thief's ring, and since he'll one-shot you
anyway, you might as well take off all your armor so you can run faster. Lure the Old King
to the bridge outside the mausoleum, when he is halfway through the bridge, run to the
room right before the bridge to break the line of sight. Then peek around the corner and
make sure he is walking away then run or walk up to him and backstab him. Do this until
you defeat him.
Depending on your level and quality of backstab weapon this might take some time. It is
possible for the Old King to attempt to heal, however he doesn't always do so. In my
several attempts he never tried to heal once.
2- The Fall of Death strategy: This one requires no attempt to fight the Old King cheap or
not but will require you to lure Doran a long way considering he walks slowly.
You might want to remove your armor and weapons but keep a shield in your off hand, just
First make sure the Old King follows you then lure him past the bridge outside the
mausoleum. Keep luring him past the room right before the bridge. At this point Doran
might glitch and you'll be unable to lure him past this room, to the bridge with the
catapults. If this happens you can punch him and push him by striking him with your
shield. Being naked and unarmed is much less fatigue consuming and you should be able to
use your fists and shield without ever running out of fatigue. Just keep hitting him so he
won't attempt to hit you.
Regardless of the method used, lure him all the way past the bridge with the catapults on
it and into the room at the end of this bridge. In that room is a very high stairway, if
Doran didn't glitch at the previous room then position yourself so that the Old King will
simply walk over the ledge of the stairway and fall to his doom. If you had to push him
here, then simply push him over the ledge to his doom.
3- The Poison Cloud strategy: This is by far the easiest but is somewhat boring.
You'll need to free sage freke from the tower of latria in 3-1, and you'll need to have
defeated the Leechmonger at the valley of defilement in 5-1. Use the Leechmonger's soul to
learn Poison Cloud from Freke. As soon as you enter the mausoleum cast it on the Old King
then run out of the room quickly. Wait for the spell to wear off it will take a few
minutes, you'll know when it has expired when Doran will stop taking damage. Then run back
into the room don't go too close to the Old King so he won't start chasing you, the
thief's ring helps here, and cast it again then run out of the room quickly.
If all goes well it should take 2-3 casts to kill him and the Old King should just stand
there for the duration. This method is slow and uneventful but it is a very easy way to
