Dark Souls II Playthrough Ep 4: The Last Giant, Soldier Key, & The Pursuer

The Need Humanity playthrough series looks to introduce newer players to Dark Souls II, help them with general mechanics, find items, and help with bosses. GameZone’s own Andrew trudges through  through Drangleic, derp around bonfires, and kills some baddies in the process.

In the fourth of the series, Rei II and I HOOD UP and take on the very first boss, The Last Giant. Despite my own warning, we summon Pate to the fight. Sure we all live, but at what cost. From the ashes of the creature, we grab the Soldier Key which allows us to open a few doors in the region. Feeling good about ourselves and some leveling later, we decide it’s time to revisit our old friend The Pursuer. After all, everyone should be close friends to a guy that rides a giant hawk and has a quiver for large weapons.
