How to beat The Looking Glass Knight in Dark Souls 2

If you played Dark Souls 2's multiplayer beta, you might have encountered this boss before--except, back then, he was called Mirror Knight. He's a slow, lumbering enemy, but has some decent range on his sword attacks.

If you get too far away from him, watch out--he'll cast a volley of lightning balls your way, which you'll need to roll dodge to avoid. When he slams his shield down into the ground, get ready--he'll summon another actual player to help kill you if you're playing online, or an AI minion if not. Need additional tips? Check out the video above.
