How to beat The Last Giant in Dark Souls 2

Here it is. The very first boss in Dark Souls 2. But don't be too overconfident--just because the Last Giant is the first big baddie doesn't mean he's a slouch. If you aren't careful he'll pound you into the ground and send you back to your bonfire real quick.

Watch out for his stomping attack, but don't be afraid to run between his legs to dodge his arm attacks. His second phase begins at half health, where he rips off his own arm and tries to kill you with large sweeping attacks. Take a look at our video on how to kill the Last Giant boss above.
