Dark Souls 2 Walkthrough and Tips - Scholar of the First Sin, Light Bonfires, Beat Every Boss

Published 1 month, 3 weeks ago by Bryan Dawson

Now that you defeated the Shadow of Yharnam and Blood-starved Beast with Prima's free Bloodborne walkthrough, it's time for a heftier challenge with Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin. This re-imaging of last year's incredibly difficult adventure releases on April 7 for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. It is the ultimate way to experience Dark Souls 2. Developer From Software not only improved the graphics for the more powerful consoles, but also included the three DLC packs: Crown of the Sunken King, Crown of the Old Iron King and Crown of the Ivory King. Expect to die numerous times, but also learn from your mistakes to become a more skilled player. The adrenaline rush that comes from defeating that first boss, in this case The Last Giant, easily surpasses the emotions you'll experience in countless video games.

With that in mind, this is Prima's free Dark Souls 2 walkthrough. From Software switched enemy locations in Scholar of the First Sin, so things won't be exactly as described. However, using this guide will help you explore the different areas in the game, light bonfires and find hidden loot. In addition, we'll tell you how to beat every boss in Dark Souls 2, including the Dragonrider, Flexile Sentry and the Smelter Demon.
