How to beat the Executioner's Chariot in Dark Souls 2

Hell hath no fury like a steed that has multiple heads and is, for whatever reason, on fire. The Executioner's Chariot is an exciting but challenging encounter. When you enter its circular arena, you first have to run toward the end of the gauntlet while ducking into the small alcoves once the Chariot comes rolling around.

Take out the necromancers on the way so that the obnoxious skeletons stop spawning. Once you reach the end of the path, pull the lever to initiate the fight. Get ready to roll dodge--this demonic horse has several brutal attacks that deal huge damage. Check out our strategy for beating it in the video above.
