Player Notes


  • Carsejaw's overall theme appears to be heavily inspired by the Dark Souls 1 boss: Gravelord Nito, in many ways.
  • Both appear as large figures clad in heavy black robes with skeletal remains fixed onto their bodies.
  • Both wield a large sword
  • Carsejaw's attack in which he raises his arms and spawns blades from the ground is very similar to the Dark Souls 1 spell "Gravelord Greatsword Dance" in which the player will summon multiple swords from the ground around them, each one appearing identical to the swords of Gravelord Nito but with a red hue. Sadly, while Carsejaw has this attack, there is no spell that the player can acquire that has a similar function.

      Ah yes, Carsejaw the Tool. I wish the word 'tool' was in the jurney bottle selection so I could actually make that joke in game. "Tool ahead" and all that.

        Holy slaughters him and if you have anything that hits hard then he can be dead in just a few swings. If you aren't going big weapons then just take a few swings when he does his slow combo and watch out for his blades from the ground. He's not too fast and the sanctuary is right next to him so he's not a major threat.

            More than you'd expect, my great hammer was taking twice as much off as for other bosses...

              This guy reminds me of Nito...26 Mar 2016 01:48  

              What with the sword, the shadowy cloak, and the skeleton looking armor he just seems to have a really strong resemblance.

       It's just wrongly named, have to fix all backlinks if you switch it to this page. :)
