Strategy

The skeletons in the Catacombs are revived by a necromancer, and will keep reviving until the necromancer is killed. Each section have its own necromancer as well. A divine weapon will ensure that skeletons stay dead, as killing them with divine power severs the Necromancers' ability to revive them. (Note: you can tell if they are going to revive by their eyes when you kill them. If they stay lit, then they're going to be revived, if they go black they're dead for good.)

  • Use a divine and/or strike weapon to do extra damage. Using club-type weapons (like the morning star) or two-hand a sword or larger weapon will shatter them temporarily on a successful attack, allowing you to get another hit in while they reform. The curved-sword-with-shield variety can and will parry your attacks (use a jumping attack if he goes into a parry stance).
