Ultimate Darkeater Midir Boss Guide - All Attacks explained - Dark Souls 3 The Ringed City

The optional boss of Dark Souls 3: The Ringed City gives players around the world a hard time. I explain all his attacks and what you can do against them in this ultimate in-depth boss guide. Obviously this video contains spoilers.

Weapons used:
Uchigatana +10
Zweihänder +10
Black Knight Greataxe +4

Additional hints:
- Pestilent Mercury or Pestilent Mist does damage based on the amount of health of an enemy (% of max HP damage), so it's quite good against Midir (thanks for the hint McNugget Slam and McPixel)
- Increasing the Camera Speed to 8-10 can also help a lot (thanks to Hristo.Bogdanov)

###### Spoiler Section #####

The Darkeater Midir boss fight in DaS3 can be a quite difficult, but if you understand some of his attacks and what you can do about it, he becomes quite easy.

You have to beat the Dragon on the bridge after the Shared Grave bonfire first. After that you can reach Midir and his boss room through the secret passage inside the elevator shaft at the Ringed Inner Wall bonfire shortcut. There you have to go through an illusory wall and down a long ladder. In this room you drop into the boss room. You won't take fall damage.

Strategy: I recommend heavy weapons for the fight and to stay in front of the boss, waiting for him too attack and avoiding his attacks, then attack his head once. If you are patient this is how you beat him easily.

I explain all attacks, esp. his laser beam attacks in this guide, so it's still worth watching :D

What is the MAXIMUM SOUL GAIN possible? -Dark Souls 3

What is the HIGHEST amount of souls you can gain in a single instance? What is the MAX amount you can AMPLIFY soul's gained? Why would you even need to know this!? SOUNDS LIKE IT'S TIME FOR SOME USELESS DATA!

Many thanks for my wonderful tester Patokia once again, you can find some QUALITY MEMEAGE over here:

So what did we find out eh? Or a TL:DW summary!
- There is many items that boost souls earned, they are the Symbol of Avarice (50% extra), the Covetous Silver Serpent Ring+2 (30% extra), Mendicant's Staff (20% more) and the Shield of Want (20% more).
- These all stack multiplicatively, so this means we get extra bang for your buck. So rather than get a 220% bonus we get a much better 280.8% bonus!
- The best boss/mob to make hella souls is the LORD OF CINDER, who drops 100k (his boss soul is only worth 20k).
- But in ng+ you can make more souls, so in ng7 and beyond you make 255k!
- With Soul boosting gear we can this 716k! Thats 7.16 times better tha before!
- How about the overkill mechanic? You get 20% more souls provindg you can deal 150% of the targets FULL health.
- And this even stacks multiplicatively once more! So the max soul amp is 337%!
- Alright, let's do the real max. Just collect 99 Soul of a Great Champion. You can only find then in ng+ and beyond and only THREE per playtrough. So you have to do it 33+ times....
-These are worth 50k each, so if you eat 99 of these at once, you make 4950k! Or 4.95 MILLION SOULS! Nice....
- So can anything beat this? Kinda... but first we need to talk about SOUL LEVELS.
- The souls you earn from players is based on Soul Level, you earn a % of what it cost them to level up last.
- Kill an invader to make 15%, kill a host to make 4%.
- Since it costs 12,368,992 (12 mill) for the final level we should be able to make 15% of this, which is 1,855,348 (1.8 mill).
- Wow, it actually works perfectly. Killing a max level invader get's you this 1.8 Mil, so does it work with the boosting and overkill?
- Aww yissss. With this boosted by 300%+, we have our final high score of 5,209,817 (5.2 MILLION) for a single kill! Well how bout that eh?

Dark Souls 3: The Ringed City - Walkthrough Part 5: Shared Grave & Midir

Fear not, the dark, ashen one.
The Ringed City is the final DLC pack for Dark Souls III – an award-winning, genre-defining Golden Joystick Awards 2016 Game of the year RPG. Journey to the world’s end to search for the Ringed City and encounter new lands, new bosses, new enemies with new armor, magic and items. Experience the epic final chapter of a dark world that could only be created by the mind of Hidetaka Miyazaki.
A New World. One Last Journey.

Dark Souls III is an action role-playing game set in a third-person perspective. According to director Hidetaka Miyazaki, the game's gameplay design follows closely from Dark Souls II. Players are equipped with a variety of weapons including shortbows, explosives like fire bombs, greatswords and dual-wielding swords to fight against enemies, and shields that can be used to deflect an enemies' attack and protect the player from suffering damage. In addition, attacks can be evaded through dodge-rolling. Bonfires, which serve as checkpoints, also return from previous installments.

Ashes, according to Miyazaki, will play an important role in the game. Magic is also featured in the game. Each attack has two different styles. One of them is standard attack, while another provides power-ups to players, and is slightly more powerful. When performing miracles and spells, the players' magic points are consumed and decreased. In order to refilled these points, they need to consume Ash Estus Flask. There are two different Estus Flasks in the game. One of them can help refill magic points, while another refill hit points. Combat and movements were made faster and more fluid in Dark Souls III. Several players' movements, such as backstepping and swinging heavy weapons, can be performed more rapidly, allowing players to deal more damage in a short period of time.

Throughout the game, players encounter different types of enemies, each with different behaviors. Some of them change their combat pattern during battles. New combat features are introduced in Dark Souls III, including Ready Stance, which are special abilities for players that allow them to deal much more damage to enemies than ordinary attacks are capable of. Small gravestones are also introduced. These gravestones light up when interacted with and not only serve as players' torches, but also provide additional lore to the game.

The game puts more focus on role-playing, in which the character builder is expanded and weapons are improved to provide more tactical options to players. The game features fewer maps than its predecessor Dark Souls II, but levels were interconnected and were made larger, which encourages exploration. The agility stat from Dark Souls II was removed from Dark Souls III. The game also features multiplayer elements, like the previous games in the series.

All console recordings are done using Xsplit and a Sennheiser PC 360 Headset.

UPDATED: How to walk in lava in Demon Ruins - Dark Souls 3

After ggettin so many tips in the comment section on the other video I figured I should make this one.
In this video I show you the new gear I am using.
The gear is obtained trough regular New Game and New Game Plus!
it is possible to obtain the New Game gear without having to use New game plus gear. But, Ng+ gear is better.

I hope this video is a little more or ecual helpfull as the other one.


The Ringed City brought a plethora of +3 variations to the current Ring set, it's a shame there were no new original rings though, damn you FromSoft. Not all my Angels are dead, you may have to deal with lasers.
