      Why did they gimp these so badly in 2 and 3? In 1, they were the most terrifying enemy in the game, along with the cat trio in Darkroot Forest. In 2, they were gated to one area and one playthrough per ng/bonfire level, being part of the boss encounter with the Skeleton Lords. And in 3...they were no longer the trolling enemy we fell in love with. Some of their animations changed, but they dont do nearly the same amount of damage. Enemies that roll attack towards you are just terrifying, especially when they are faster than you. And roll attacks require no weapon swing timing to avoid, you just have to avoid their movement entirely by a well-timed dodge, other wise you dodge too late and they run you over/stagger-chain you, or you roll too early, and they still track towards you. But you know what? DkS 3 still had a great amount of skeletons,. The catacombs of Carthus is one of my favorite "maze" type level designs, and they had a great amount of skeleton enemies to fight in there, between the regular varieties made famous in DkS1, and the new carthus skellies that rolled in and out of sight towards you while they fought, and the giant corpse/skeleton ball (hah! i love it), and even those root entangled skellies in the Undead settlement were fun.

          I've noticed a lot of these wiki pages mention when an enemy was in DS1, but not when the same enemy was in DS2. These guys were definitely in 2, the boss fight (forget the name) with the 3 skeleton lords.

            Is this really appropriate?29 Jun 2016 23:23  

            "They are a shadow of their former glory however, with fewer numbers and a shortend attack animation." Is this really appropriate for a wiki? This is clearly an opinion and not fact, notes, or trivia.

            • They're nowhere near as dangerous as they were in Dark Souls 1 but...18 May 2016 19:42

                From the catacombs bonfire head down the stairs where the skeleton ball is rolling up and down and head to the right. They should be at the end of the hallway
