      I once saw a player do one of the jumps that these skeletons do, and even threw the three kukri while he did it. Was he hacking? Or is doing that flip entirely possible?

        Personally I enjoy annihilating them. The majority of those skeletons can be semi-snuck up upon as there's a pillar covering you from their sight or similar scenarios in the catacombs. <br/><br/>Get into their face, literally. Walk up close and then start ruining those guys. They stagger very easily against larger weapons.

          Hit them with a mace. From what I can tell, it doesn't matter if it's just a standard mace or a mace +10, they crumple to the floor in one hit.

          • Try Executioners Greatsword28 Apr 2016 09:01  

            If you're having trouble and you have the stats try using the Executioners Greatsword, you'll be swimming in titanite shards once you finish the catacombs so upgrade it to +3 for some easy farming on NG.

              Just wasted like 3 estus flasks on one of these guys. And I died anyway. No obvious weaknesses from what I can see. What the hell...

                Ridiculously agile, hits hard and often, easily causes bleed, and gives no *****s about your shield. Easily one of the worst enemies to face in this game.
