Dark Souls II Boss Guide: Royal Rat Authority
I hate this dirty rat. He’s a huge pain in the butt. From the start, there are a bunch of little rat minions that will toxic you in two hits. Toxic is the absolute worst thing. If I started toxic, I would practically give up. You’ll want to kill them before the boss comes, which isn’t that much time. This guy is a lot like Sif. He only has a few attacks so once you learn those he’ll be much easier. When he does his neck charge attack I find it best to roll back. When he does the double paw attack, dodge the first and then dodge forward.
