    Really?! What is it? I certainly didn't find it...

    Stay calm and don't move if you don't have to. Try to kill the first one as quickly as possible, even if it means spamming a few hearts. Once there's two of them, try to keep both of them on the same side of the screen at once. Learn the sounds they make before wach attack so you can react accordingly. Focus on one at a time. Good luck! It's definitely a bit of a spike.

    I guess so. Seems a bit anticlimactic. Nevermind. Got all the charms now.

    YUSSSSSSSSSSS! Finally killed NG. Thank Christ for that. Still had 4 hearts left, too! Only the final boss to go now and I can put this to bed. It's been fantastic

    Got him down to 25% last night! I'm now able to get at least one an attack in during each one of his attacks, too, whereas previously I was always waiting for the hell bat move. I'll try him again tonight. If can stop making stupid mistakes I'll have him. I also discovered another little tidbit that makes this game so brilliant:

    Thanks for this. I've ordered one to use with the PS headset. Thought I'd give it a go for a fiver. I'll probably still get the Genki once it's released for the convenience.

    How do you use that in portable mode though? Do you just leave the transmitter plugged into the dock? You can't plug it into the Switch itself, can you?

    Thanks @imp for the detailed tips! After 90 minutes last night I was able to figure out how to avoid all his attacks, it's just doing it consistently that's the problem and staying calm. As his attacks do double damage, five hits and I'm dead. Any tips on charms? At the moment I've got Shape of Unn, the unbreakable damage charm, Mantis's Pride and something else. Possibly quick slash.

    After all my talk that this game wasn't too difficult the other day, last night I spent about 90 minutes butting my head against a brick wall trying to take down I must have had about 40 attempts at him during that time but only towards the end did I get him down to 75% health a handful of times. I never got any further than that, though. I tried lots of different charm combinations but the only one I had any real joy with was using Shape of Unn to heal during his fire pillar move. Doing this, however, means that I can only really get some decent hits in when he's doing the fire bat thing. All the other attacks are too quick. I feel like I could (maybe) take him, eventually, but it would require a few more nights of solid practice and I'm not sure that I can be arsed. I'm on about 102% completion and only have the final boss left (not going to bother with the Godmaster stuff). Has anyone here managed to beat him?

    Oh. Can you please send me a link? Does it plug into the charging point at the bottom of the console or the headphone jack?

    If you're talking about wireless USB headphones, then I believe there are adapters available. If you're talking about Bluetooth pairing, though, I don't think an adapter exists yet, not in portable mode, at least. Someone has made a Kickstarter for a Bluetooth adapter called the Genki but it's not out yet. I'll be buying it when it does, though, as not being able to connect my Bluetooth headphones to it undocked is the one annoyance I have with it.

    I actually think it's easier than the Souls games. I haven't lost my shade (aka bloodstain) once. The only thing I've found especially frustrating is a late game optional challenge. As has been said, it's tough but fair.

    I see. I got the lamp after Crystal Peak so I never realised there was a toll gate there. Maybe you can complete the game without downward dive then.

    Oh yeah. How did you get into Crystal Peak without that? You need it to get in via Crossroads, don't you?
