          Anri and Gotthard made Pontiff too easy, I just stood there, shooting Great Soul Arrows and ocasionally parriyng if he approaches. This is the first time I play the game

            Hello there! It seems like i'm only the one who get " The Soul of Cinder" phantom NPC while fighting The Soul of Cinder itself? It's basically boss vs boss at mine.

                This list is a little disappointing compared to that of ds2. Of course, nobody summons npcs that much anyway.

                  Hey, you forgot Siegward of Catarina, he helps defeat Yhorm in the Profaned Capital if you've progressed into his questline far enough.
