        even in a glitchless, control mapping abuse (long jump, ladder trick, etc.) free run of this game, far more bosses are optional than simply the ones listed. The only bosses required, from what I can tell, are Sodden Knight, Kraeken Cyclops or False Jester, Kraeken Wyrm, Untouched Inquisitor, Third Lamb, Dried King, Witch of the Lake, Unskinned + Architect, Kraeken Dragon Skourzh, and Nameless God. Only 10/23 are required at minimum.

          There is a way to reach almost everywhere after killing Sodden Knight, using shift+jump... it takes a bit of skill but I've managed to arrive to the Witch without killing any other boss. Maybe you can reach even further.

            if you kill the kraekan cyclops you get the green key then you dont need to kill the false jester but if you kill the jester instead you dont need to kill the cyclops

              Technically speaking, the Stench Most Foul is an optional boss... as it's possible to complete the game without ever acquiring the Redshift Brand. There is another way to enter the Ruined Temple without it...

              • Gold rewards07 Sep 2016 20:59  

                From what I've experienced so far, every boss' gold reward seems to follow this formula : "Base salt reward" + 10 = "Gold reward". Even Murdiella Mal follows this rule (0 salt + 10 = 10 gold).<br/>I don't know of any exception, but there might be one. <br/>

                  the mankini warrior of the satan lands??<br/>looks like someones trolling the wiki....<br/>why do you people have to do this childish bull*****?

                  • The forgotten king01 Jun 2016 20:24  

                    Did you know the forgotten king,judge and knight are the 3 ''new gods'' if you go to the sencuary at the village of smiles you will see the 3 ''new gods'' they wear similar cloths as the forgotten gang.

                    • Optional Bosses ?29 May 2016 07:26  

                      I can tell that "the coveted" and "carsejaw the cruel" are optional too, since I finished the game without beating them (there is often a way to pass a boss trought another way)

                      • Optional Bosses28 May 2016 15:22  

                        Something like half of the bosses for the not optional category can be never fought without using any glitches. If you get dart brand and go to far beach you can get through woods and get to Witch of the Lake without fighting: The Queen of Smiles, one of (Mad Alchemist + False Jester / Kraekan Cyclops), The Tree of Men, The Disemboweled Husk, That Stench Most Foul, The Bloodless Prince and The Coveted. You don't have to use any glitches or anything, just take right path through the game...

                        • Needs a map26 May 2016 04:59  

                          The game desperately needs a map, I fought the wyvern before I fought Smiles...<br/><br/>I'm forced to look at wiki in order to know where to go, walking around in game is so boring when I can't find out what to do next.

                          • Dejavu21 May 2016 12:39  

                            Funny how some bosses are like Dark Souls 1 bosses.<br/><br/>Ronin Cran is like Knight Artorias.<br/>Murdiella Mal is a dark version of the Moonlight Butterfly.<br/>Carsejaw the Cruel is clearly Gravelord Nito with a minor difference on his vertical stab.<br/>And the Witch of the Lake is something that the Witch of Izalith should've been.

                            • bull*****08 Apr 2016 00:09  

                              You need to need the Cyclops battle cause I get almost one shoted and even if I doge roll he still hits me. If it dosent get fixed soon am reporting you guys

                              • Armor and strat28 Mar 2016 21:33  

                                Using the merchant set gives pretty solid arcane resist. I think I killed her at lvl 60 ish using a headsman's voulge 5. Currently 130 on NG+ and having a hard time with a northern cross maxed. Worth possibly putting points into prayer to get etherial intervention. Arcane defense ring will also help. While this fight is 95% dodging, having the defense to survive getting clipped by a few attacks will help immensely.

                                • Also optional...28 Mar 2016 20:22  

                                  Carsejaw, Coveted, Bloodless Prince, Stench, Queen of Smiles, and Husk.<br/><br/>Also if you kill the Cyclops the Alchemist and Jester are skippable.
