      Probably should put enemies that are fun to fight or engage in the slightest in the game instead of annoyances to be ignored. 90% of the enemies in Dark Souls 3 I just run by because they aren't enjoyable to fight, which is unfortunate since fighting enemies is kind of the entire point of the game.

        Reeeeally wish these enemies didn't exist. All they do is spam the ruin summon and I can't even move an inch without getting***** on by the constant arrows

          You can four shot him using sunlight spear, with the following rings equipped:

          Priestess ring
          Ring of the sun's first born
          Sage ring
          Lloyds sword ring

          My consumable was green blossom.

          Just make it to the ladder without taking damage, use the green blossom, and run up the steps. You should be able to get three spears in before the archers start firing. Dodge the first wave of arrows after you've thrown the first three spears then fire the last one once they stop. Watch out though, once the archers are summoned the second time they will keep firing until that wave has stopped.

          Hope this info helps. :)

            My tactic to burn through one with a 42 strength, 42 dexterity build (2nd playthrough):
            - Refined Morningstar +10 (strike damage)
            - Human Pine Resin (dark damage)
            - Pontiff's Right Eye
            - Green Blossom

              Sometimes I wish FromSoft would stop getting out of their comfort zone with enemies like this.
              Sheesh, buggy as hell. Sometimes he summons two Ledo spirits at once. Or six Zullie spirits as their attacks clip through walls.
              Then summoning those Ruin Sentinels while you're directly in front of him.
              Eh...not to mention I got one shotted (1414 HP with a lot of defense) by Zullies dark attack.

                So is it ever explained how these giants can summon archers, ledo, zullie, and a dragon's head just by yelling into the sky?

                  The one in the swamp is constantly mumbling about searching for something I think. Vocal enemies are awesome, though I never live/let them live long enough to hear their entire script. Cool guy tbh as long as he isn't sicking his ghosts against me.

                    Just causally strolling from the first bonfire and I get insta-raped by a million arrows, classic dark souls

                      This is wrong! Magic actually takes more health from him than physical attacks. Lightning seems to work really well too. Dark takes a nice amount too, but not more than lighting or magic. Dark magic destroys him.

                        I never knew about that dragon one, really strange how that single Judicator has a special summon, I'd love to know the lore reasons.

                          The first one you encounter can also summon what appears to be Hellkite Dragon's head to breathe fire at you.
