Boss encounter dialogue

"Unknowing visitor, return from whence thou camest.
The Abyss runneth deep. By the King's decree. None may disturb our mistress's slumber.
Turn back, unknowing visitor.
By the King's decree.
Foolishness. The King's decree is no trifling matter.
I, Judicator Argo, shall deliver thee justice."

        "Spear of the Church, sworn defender of our Princess Filianore! Harken to the call that summons thee! Make haste! Spear of the church, by the sacred decree, protect our Princess.
...Spear of the Church, make haste."
When approaching as a member of the Spears of the Church covenant

"Spear of the Church, turn back.
The Abyss runneth deep. Thou'rt sworn to protect our mistress's slumber.
Or wouldst thou thy covenant forsake, in violation of the King's decree?"

       "Turn back, Spear of the Church.
Or wouldst thou thy covenant forsake, in violation of the King's decree?"

       "Foolishness. To forswear thy covenant and the King's decree.
I, Judicator Argo, shall bring this defiled spear to justice."

       "Divine spear of Yore, sworn defender of our Princess Filianore! Harken to the call that summons thee.
Make haste! Divine spear of yore, by sacred decree, protect our dear Princess."

"Divine spear of yore, make haste."

        so what is he? Part of Filianores dream? Last member of an extinct race? There stands a 30 feet tall guy in the landscape summoning ghosts and all you "people" do is just swallow it? Are you insane? At least I don't have to wonder why Haralds Legion...is the legion of Harald. Thanks for shuffling words...

            So... I went past the fog gate and Argo started *****in about breaking the coventant. Now most of the dialogue remains the same but I did realize tgat instead of calling a "spear of the church" he calls for a "divine spear of yore".

            If you recall the item you find behind the covenant monument is the "Fragment church spear" (or something) while once you hit covenant lvl 3 you earn the "divine church spear".

            Also the invader was slightly tougher than most. He was aggressive and had the whole dark clutch setup with a dark buffed astora greatsword, a parry dagger and light armor. So he seemed tougher than the regular pvper. We fought for a good while and eventually I won but he had my respect.

            So is a spear of the church more likely to face a higher ranking member when he goes for the boss?

                Fun Fact: I'm part of the Warriors of the Sun Covenant and for some strange reason, I was called as a Spear of the Church. And some dude stab me just as I was appearing in the fight. I wasted more time being summoned than what I last in the fight. LOL

                  " - Killable, but there's no reason to kill him, as he dies after the Spear of the Church is summoned " How's about I kills him so I don't's haves to listens to that unskippable dialouge that takes half my 600 hours of gameply to finish, that I sat through just so I can fight a boss who is literally just standing there and "SUMMONING ANOTHER PHANTOM"

                      "The King's decree is no trifling matter!" He says as I murder him for the thirtieth time to farm for items I will never use.

                        How many Judicator Argos summoned from different timelines into one stinking abyssal swamp does it take to stop one champion of ash? Apparently not enough as the Champion of Ash willingly revives Argo for hunting sport

                          Why is judicator argo assumed to be every judicator giant? You can see the giant in the swamp and the giant by the purging monument at the same time, so they are clearly not all judicator argo. Judicator Argo is only the giant in the Halflight boss fight.

                            Go one step further From!

                            Make it so I can revive ANY boss!

                            I want to have an FC in the streets of Irithyll for a change without having a character there just to do that!

                              He can be revived! My desire for a permanent dried finger run area has been answered! And it's a nasty area with plenty of enemies to help out the invader!

                              Does killing him before the Spears fight starts actually do anything? It seems like the Painting Guardians and the PvP boss still spawn just fine.
