As a mainly melee focused player with some points in INT and FTH so I can use soul arrow and lightning bolt, Shrine of Amana was a Nightmare. I had to manually try and lightning bolt those bloody casters which could hit you from way too far away, because I couldn't get close enough for the target system to work. Iron Keep on the other hand, was a cake walk. I even beat the boss on my 2nd try. Hardest boss so far was the Dukes Dear Freja, but I haven't beaten the final boss yet because I wanna take out the Ancient Dragon and Vendrick.

So if you google Dark Souls 2 the punisher, which is the second main story boss, the very first result is a review by non-other than Jeff, who, as we all know, loves Dark Souls more than anyone. Is this a secret message from past Jeff? Is he really a time traveller who completed DS2 years ago? Or is it really just a review for some PS2 game?
