What's on your mind?
Now that I've officially destroyed this cheater several times, I feel comfortable sharing a few of the things I've learned. I know that there are different cheese strats, but I wanted to fight her with only the basics. So these tips are geared toward a solo, no spirits, no consumables, no ashes of war, basic talisman etc playthrough. Basically just a player with a standard weapon.
1. Use a light load. Many people may not know this, but your rolls travel a longer distance when you have a light load. Why is this important? There's no secret that Malenia has some incredible range. Keeping a light load allows you to perfectly out-space her attacks with your rolls making it less likely for you to get caught on successive attacks. It also helps you run faster and dodge through the waterfowl dance attack much better.
You might be wondering if taking off all your armor is all that productive during this fight. Malenia does a metric ton of damage even with armor on. For me, having light rolls allowed me to avoid damage altogether for many no-damage first phases. It was night and day different.
2. Find the spacing sweet spot. The hardest one for me, but if you can get her spacing down really well, you won't have to dodge many of her attacks and can bait out her attacks that leave her open for heavy punishes. When the fight mostly revolves around being in the right spot when she does waterfowl dance, good positioning is key.
This can be enhanced by having a long range weapon. Good spacing provides opportunities for fully charged heavy attacks.
3. Know the difference between her combo attacks. The best move to punish in the first phase is her combo attack where she lunges at the player with several strikes before ending with a final slash at her side. Always dodge through this attack on HER right side. Then if you know the difference between her delayed and regular attack, you can know if it's safe to punish or not.
Those are just a few tips that players may have missed. If I missed anything, feel free to include it in the comments.

Is it just me or do the Crystal Lizards in the Great Hollow respawn irregularly?

Hey guys, hope everyone’s doing well!
I am new to this forum because it’s my first time playing Dark Souls. A friend told me about the game and i am completely attached to it!
I wanna know if you guys have any advice for me as a new player and member of the community.
So there’s this dude saying he’ll “teach me the secret of Sellia” but all notes say he’s a fake, are they lying or telling the truth?
Can someone help me with a minor edtree guardian? I get 1 shot and like in spider man, have no way home, thank you
