Defeat Gravelord Nito

Defeat the Soul Lord Gravelord Nito.

Gravelord Nito is located at the end of the Catacombs, and at the end of Tomb of Giants. It may be a hard process to get to him if you don't have the Dark Lantern. After defeating the Pinwheel boss in the catacombs, you will find a ladder that takes you into the Tomb of Giants and everything will go pitch black. Carefully follow the colored markers and make your way lower into the Tomb until you come to a small walkway outside to another cave. Inside this cave will be full of pinhweels, but the door to Gravelord Nito is at the top.

When you enter his room you will have to drop down a bit taking damage. Heal it up. He will begin the battle by summoning multiple small skeletons and giant skeletons. Kite them around and away from Nito, then rush in for a few hits. Back off when they start to come back or hold your guard button when you see him charging a dark attack - it's possible to block. Rinse and repeat until Nito is defeated.

Simple. Get through the annoying Tomb of Giants and find the fog gate.

To make getting there easier bring a divine or occult weapon. *I used an Divine Uchigatana +5.

During the boss fight be ready to take a beating, Nito has minions. Keep your shield up and parry attacks if you can. When Nito attacks and gets his sword stuck in the ground two-hand and wail on him.

If you are a caster or Pyromancer, this is potentially an easy fight. If you have a fully upgraded pyromancy flame and you use high level pyromancy, such as Great Fireball, you will be able to take out Nito quickly. Crystal Soul Spear and Homing Soulmass are incredibly effective if you equip the Crown of Dusk and the Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring.

If a caster, focus on Nito and ignore the skeletons, Nito's attacks will sometimes kill the skeletons. Make sure to dodge his attacks, hit him with spells and heal when needed. Don't go too far into the area to prevent the Big Skeletons from attacking you.

It's even easier if the player lures him out; that's to say if a lower level characters strong point is not ranged attacks.

Kill the first 2-3 skeletons with a divine weapon; Nito can revive all the skeletons if not killed with a divine weapon. Do not venture far out, Nito comes towards you. Going to far out agros the larger skeletons making the battle a little more difficult. Nito has a magic ground sword beneath-your-feet attack, which he can unleash from anywhere, just time it and roll (listen to the sounds Nito makes to determine the attack).

When Nito comes close enough towards you, beat him to a pulp. Toe-to-toe Nito's melee attacks can not reach you, even better, destroy him from behind. Roll back with your shield up (a decent shield) when he does his charged radius magic bla

I could really use some help with this boss, i have been unable to defeat him so far and dont want to lose anymore souls or humanity. I have honestly been waiting at the boss door for about an hour and not a single summon sign has appeared. If anyone sees this, please come and place a summon sign to help me with him.
