Orphan of Kos
Silver Image

Defeat Great One: Orphan of Kos

Orphan of Kos is the final boss fight in the DLC and is simply the toughest fight in the entire game, at the very end of the Fishing Hamlet on the beach is where you will face off against the Great One
You’ll need to be seriously levelled (150+) have a full stock of blood vials, Kos doesn’t really have a weakness to any specific element, so your best bet is to bring a fast weapon like the Rakuyo or the Saw Cleaver and keep yourself as agile as can be
In Kos’ first phase he is incredibly fast, has some very powerful combos and will close range on you in a heartbeat, try and stick to his left side wherever possible, this might take you a good few attempts to get used to the fight
The big problem with Kos is it’s very hard to telegraph his attacks, he can feint one strike then land a devastating combo exactly where you dodge to
Stamina management is more important than ever here, if you can’t dodge, you’ll be straight back to the Hunter’s Dream, when you have Kos down to 50% health, he will then bite his weapon, get a lot stronger, hit a lot harder and employ a lot of charged nova style lightning blasts, these can be avoided thankfully by sprinting left or right. Unfortunately, giving Kos’ sporadic attacks, there’s no definitive strategy, if you’re dying consistently, I recommend going off and significantly levelling your character then coming back to have another go at him
Once you’ve defeated Kos, your Trophy will unlock

Ludwig, the Holy Blade
Bronze Image

Defeat the beast that was once Ludwig, the Holy Blade

Ludwig is the first boss you’ll come to in The Old Hunters DLC and can be quite a challenge if you’re under-levelled, before you fight him, ensure you have the Black Church armor set, which you can acquire in Cathedral Ward in the main game (take a left out of  Cathedral Ward, go up through the open gate, take a left, go down through the enemies to find the Black Church set on a corpse) as you will need this to acquire one of the strongest weapons in the entire game, The Holy Moonlight Sword
Ludwig will start the fight with a good few swipes and hits incredibly hard so steer clear of these attacks
Once Ludwig is down to 50% health he will transform becoming incredibly aggressive, he can close range on you very quickly so make sure you have a lot of blood vials to help you through this fight, if he’s ripping you apart really easily, simply go off and level up a few times to have a better chance
Once you have defeated Ludwig, your Trophy will unlock

Lady Maria of the Astral Clocktower

Defeat Lady Maria of the Astral Clocktower

After you have defeated the Living Failures you will receive the Astral Clocktower Key, ensure you have replenished all of your blood vials, Fire paper, Bolt paper and have your best blood/fire-resistant armour set equipped, for me personally, I found Lady Maria more challenging than any other enemy in the game, I lost count the amount of times she emptied my health bar
The problem with Lady Maria is her speed and her unrivalled ability to close range on you in a heartbeat, she uses a Rakuyo and some very powerful blood arts as you make your way through the battle, she is also very good with her firearm as well staggering you at the last second before you attack leaving you open to a nasty visceral attack that she always manages to land
Once you have reduced her to roughly 50% health all of her attacks come with a fire bonus that follows her sword swipes, so if she unleashes a 3 hit combo, it will become a 6 hit combo with the fire following closely behind her sword. This can be devastating if you’re caught in the combination if not dodged properly
Use Fire paper in the first phase then Bolt paper on her when she uses fire, eventually, you will have a good run against her and get the win, at which point, your Trophy will unlock

Living Failures
Bronze Image

Defeat the failed attempts to become Great Ones

The Living Failures are the second boss you will get to in the DLC and are found at the very top of the Research Hall area. The fight itself is like a flipping a coin, it will go well and you’ll defeat them, or they’ll gang up on you, you’ll be stunned and dead before you know what’s happening
When you first start the fight there will be one Living Failure, as the fight goes on, up to 3 more will join the fight. All of the Living Failures share one health bar, however, they can also be individually defeated but they always respawn. The Living Failures employ a strong series of melee attacks including a headbutt, flailing their arms about and body slams, not an issue on a single Living Failure, but can be devastating when there’s a few of them around you
During the second phase of the fight, the Living Failures will use a lot of homing magic on you including meteors coming fro above, you can use the large tree in the middle of the area to help block these, just watch out from behind
Camera management is very important in this boss fight, you need to know where all 4 of the Living Failures are and more importantly, what they’re currently doing at any given time so you have the best chance of avoiding their attacks and getting some of your own in
Fire paper works very well in this fight, as does any weapon with a powerful knock-back charged R2 attack such as the Hunter Axe in 2 handed mode
Once you have reduced their health bar to 0, any remaining Living Failures will then die, at which point your Trophy will unlock

Laurence, the First Vicar
Bronze Image

Defeat the beast that was once Laurence, the First Vicar

Continue through the DLC to the “Grand Cathedral” take the Eye Pendant from the beast at the back of the room
From here, carry on through the DLC to the Research Hall elevator, when you send the elevator up ensure you stay off of it for another platform with an Altar will come up from below, on here will be Laurence’s Skull, take this skull back to the “Grand Cathedral“, use Laurence’s Skull on the beast to begin a very challenging fight against Laurence, the First Vicar
Laurence, is essentially a re-skinned version of the Cleric Beast, with a plethora of newer, stronger attacks. Ensure you have some very good fire resistant armour and Bolt paper to have an easier time of this fight. When Laurence is down to about 66% health, he will become a lot more aggressive and gain more range so only attack where you can, at roughly 40% health, Laurence will lose his legs, crawling around the floor, this is makes the fight incredibly hard work now as he leaves a large trail of fire behind him, if you get caught in this you can easily get staggered until you die so avoid the fire at all costs
This fight might take you a good few attempts, but you’ll get there in the end, once Laurence, the First Vicar has been defeated your Trophy will unlock
