Hardest Bosses in Dark Souls 2 DLC

The Top Ten

1 Lud and Zallen, the King's Pets

Just, Why do they Exist? They are a reskin boss as well as a poorly thought out gank fight. Once the second one comes in, you better pray that you can kill the first in a few seconds because otherwise, you are in for a world of pain. As well as this, the second tiger will crack something that works as a lifegem+defense boost that restores stupid amounts of health. - kempokid

2 Fume Knight

A boss that is hyped up way too much in terms of difficulty. His attacks are all nicely telegraphed and gives you plenty of warning before attacking you. That said, he is still a gruelling fight. His first phase is awkward to handle, on account of his 2 swords being of wildly different timings. His second phase cannot fully block his attacks and the damage that he does is insane. He also has a very large health bar. However, despite this, he is the boss that I feel the most confident I can fight without taking a hit, he just punishes you greatly if you make a mistake. - kempokid

He has so much health. Not only that but if you forgot to destroy the Nadalia golems outside his arena, you may have to restart the fight. Worse if he's already in his second phase.

3 Sir Alonne

This boss has insane speed, combos, and damage. His attacks can be oddly timed, such as his dash, and the boss becomes twice as difficult if he stabs you, he now has elemental damage and deals nearly twice the damage. He is an all round difficult boss - kempokid

4 Blue Smelter Demon

A tankier version of one of the hardest main game bosses that does more damage, has almost as much health as the ancient dragon and has magic damage instead of fire damage. The main thing that makes him more difficult however, is the random delays between his attacks. Seriously, this guy can wait 3 seconds before swinging the sword that he holds over his head. This means that you have to react to each individual move instead of a combo. - kempokid

5 Elana, the Squalid Queen

This boss' difficulty depends on RNG. If you are lucky, she will keep summoning skeletons and you will have an easy time winning. If she summons velstadt on the other hand, be prepared to split them up, otherwise you will be murdered. If you are even less lucky, she will summon tiny pigs, which are difficult to hit and are highly infuriating. - kempokid

6 Burnt Ivory King

While he isn't the most difficult boss, by the time you slice through all of the charred lot every knights to summon him, you will most likely be considerably worse off than if you didn't have to fight him. He still is a fairly hard fight in itself though, with reasonably high health, good range and fairly good damage. - kempokid

7 Afflicted Graverobber and Co.

A boss that is extremely difficult if you don't utilise the well made arena. If you try fighting them head on, you will die a horrible death. You should instead run and split them up through all of the drop offs and pathways scattered around. It takes longer, but it will work. - kempokid

8 Sinh, the Slumbering Dragon

A boss that is the definition of an endurance fight. Extremely high health, telegraphed attacks. Sinh depends on how patient you are in a fight. Which is why I find him to be quite manageable, the only attack to really watch out for is where he spins around breathing fire on you, it hurts a lot. - kempokid

9 Gravity

This is the most ridiculous enemy, and it is everywhere in every game. It is bigger than the entire map, has infinite health, is a one shot kill, and is invisible. However, if you know what you are doing and are careful, it will never be able to hurt you. A lot of people might disagree on me putting this boss last, but as long as you are careful, you can stand still and won't get hurt by it. - kempokid

10 Aava, The King's Pet

Even this boss is tough, just not as tough. The main difficulty with Aava is that it matters what way you dodge, otherwise you will be clipped by her claws. - kempokid
