You can skip both fyi.
But if you wield twin maces and power stance you can kick the crap out of the trio without them even raising a hand against you, you can just lock them down one at a time.
[/quote]Afaik, Sentries cannot be skipped anymore in Sotfs, that’s been fixed.
Edit: Soldiered on for a bit, things got much better after getting a shield. Which is disappointing, because I wanted to go in again with a mostly dodge oriented build, maybe I’ll give it a try later after leveling up HP so I actually have a bit of wiggle room for adapting to the “new” timing. Also, Scimitar is still lovely with its ok damage and marvelous moveset.
Went through Heide’s ToF, Forest of Giants (which, for the biggest part, isn’t a forest), Tomb of Gia… Saints, joined rat covenant. Not planning on reverse-invasions for the moment but I guess it’s one of the better covenants with some potential for fun (if you’d like to farm some Pharo’s Lockstones, give me a shout). Went into the Gutter and found a “this place again?” message, which probably has been placed by the devs. It’s only partly correct though, Blighttown seemed much shorter and with less potential for drops-to-death. Left for now after experiencing just that a couple of times due to locking-on to enemies and am now at the Sentinels.
Almost no multiplayer so far, mostly because I couldn’t be bothered to use effigies and don’t really need the help. I made an exception for the Pursuer, the poor guy helping me got obliterated by my ballista bolts, together with Big P. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
