He is quite possibly the most tedious and boring boss in the game. Once you figure out his pattern the fight turns basically into a battle of attrition with you trying not to fall asleep. He is incredibly formulaic and never really mixes up his movements or does anything unexpected. Not even his second phase add anything to switch things up and make things interesting. Him constantly moving across the stage with you having to run to him over and over also gets tiresome.

It is basically, stay in from of him, dodge, attack his head, dodge for what seems like an eternity given his absurdly massive health pool.

Such a boring boss. Does anyone really enjoys this fight?

I'm one of the people that still do not find him an easy fight. So, no...I do not. He's pretty much the only fight I actively avoid if I do not need anything from him.

He is very simple. Just stay in front of him at close range, he will then only resort to melee attacks for the most part. Dodge them and hit his heat. Rinse and repeat until he is dead.

For you and others, maybe. Not me, though. I stand in front of him, I die. Simple as that.

Maybe one day I'll go at him not with the intent to kill him but to simply learn him. Admittedl, this is something I've not ever done as I've always entered with the intent to kill him, and I have, just not without trouble. And no, I killed him solo. I refuse to co-op him.

Yes. I like midir.

He is easy, and it does take a bit, but I like having this huge arena to run around in

It has an intense feel to the battle visually and thematically.

I like to use a bow too, when he’s too far away or in the middle of an unapproachable move, to speed things up and add a little challenge

The fight doesn’t take nearly as long as Gael or friede. Gael phase one and friede 1&2, bow that’s boring after the 50th time
Don't go and die over nothing

I hated it at first, but the more I do it, the more I enjoy it.

It wasn't even a "git gud" thing, as I've never struggled with him, I just simply didn't like the concept of him taking half damage everywhere but his head.

Eventually, I just stopped caring or whatever, and ended up enjoying it. It's not like you should be hitting him anywhere else to begin with.

I enjoy it for the reasons you mentioned. It's satisfying to figure out the patterns and then have the patience to take him down. Pretending it was real (lol), it would take a lot of patience and strategy to take down a massive dragon

I got the same feeling of accomplishment from Midir as I did the Fume Knight. There isnt really a way to cheese it and 1 mistake means your in a lot of trouble. When I did finally win it was exciting because I could read everything he did (later still got me a fair amount though) and felt like a boss weaving in and out of his attacks
