Dark Souls 2 Boss guide (updated with Crown of the Ivory King)

The Dark Souls series is well know (and often feared) for its brutal boss fights, and Dark Souls 2 certainly doesn't shirk away from this reputation. Some Dark Souls 2 bosses are giants, others are smol, while more still will team up to outnumber you - and if you don't get your priorities and tactics just right, you'll get remorselessly destroyed in the blink of an eye. That's why we're here to help you, as we've already taken down every single Dark Souls 2 boss (including all of the DLC), to bring you combat strategies and video walkthroughs to help you beat every boss and keep your souls together.
