      If you’re having trouble as a melee build, I recommend using shield/rapier combo. Rapier sword thrusts allow u to get a lot of damage done between his attacks.

        In forest of fallen giants: You can bait this guy to follow ALL THE WAY back up the dark room where you fought the skeletons, he eventually begins to "de-aggro" and try to walk back to his invasion spot. It's HERE you can take advantage of his glitching programing and start hitting him. Sometimes he'll hit back or cast spells but not as much because he's trying to walk away from you. This sounds cheap or cheesy, but so does the fact he has SEVERAL end-game spells, but you're in the third area of the game...

          Fun getting invaded by this guy in the second area with a million HP, homing missiles and long range magic sword that phases through walls..

            **** this piece of **** npc, armorer my ass. A ****ing champion knight in close combat and a ****ing Archmage Lord in ranged combat. The only way to defeat this abomination of an NPC is slam his ass to the ground with heavy weapon attacks.

              First time playing DS2. I got invaded by this guy and he did the point gesture so I thought it was a human, tried to socialize, failed badly. One of his spells deals a third of my HP and when he catches me with his normal sword he takes away more than half of my HP.
              I love this game :/

                The secret to defeat this guy is simple: keep an eye on the distance, it determines his next move

                1 - If you are very close range: he will atack you melee, so you can backstep and atk or roll and atk
                2 - Medium distance: He will keep his guard on, depending of your next action he will dodge and melee or dodge and cast a spell. You can try to pressure an atack or guard break
                3 - Large distance: Prepare to dodge becouse he will use magic atack

                (sorry english is not my native language, hope this helps)

                  This dude is spawn-killing me. I do about one sixteenth of his health per hit, he does half of mine. Factor in all of the hollows and turtle dudes and you get - bullshit.

                    FOR SPELL CASTERS: kill the halberd and the axe guy before you leave the bonfire, Run left to the staircase and hit him 3 or so times with a spell before he reaches the staircase. run underneath it then Precast your spell as he walks around to attack you so he cant spell spam, sometimes his Soul greatsword will 1shot you through the staircase, just keep trying

                      Simple tactic for those that have trouble (still): guard break him when he's holding up his shield, he keeps it up for ages so no need to rush, if he takes his shield down and walks towards you thats when you let zin attack to parry him, every other attacl you just dodge rolle through- its a cake walk once figured out :)

                        Jest went back through the hall where skeletons had waken up, went up the ladder and stroke him with 20 arrows as he was not willing to go up the ladder (actually he did, but slow enough to be killed)

                          Kicking him off the ladder wasn't working well for some reason, but the next best thing took him out easily. Just drop down the hole on the roof where the turtles are and let him come down the ladder after you. You can easily get a few solid hits in before he gets down, and a few more as he turns to face you. Then just run out of the building, back up the ladder, and do it again. He shouldn't even be able to hit you.

                            I found a very good technique to beat him in Forest of Fallen Giants with a melee build: first, you need to clear the area - kill all four turtles and the soldiers. Then provoke Dennis to spawn and run away to the building where the three turtles used to be in. Climb up the side ladders (the ones outside of the building), and when he starts to climb up, give him a few hits two-handed. As he's climbing or just risen to the top of the building, these will slightly stagger him and make him fall off the building. If you have a weapon that's even slightly decent, you'll make enough damage so that he'll die in one to three falls, and you're left without a scratch. In case he does manage to hurt you, you'll have ample time to drink some estus when he's fallen or climbing. Super-easy, voila!

                              You can grab and use the giant seed from the tree where he spawns and dennis can take damage from the other enemies in the area. Sorry its so late, just now got around to getting this game lol

                                easiest invader for me, i even managed to roll catch him with lost sinner sword, and it sucks for roll catches.

                                  Just two hand wield a mace (the one you get Form the Majula forge is just fine) and spam him. Once you're getting low or he gains the upper hand, run to the opposite room (Bonfire or the one where the Giant rests, whichever one is farthest) and heal up. Do this once or twice and Rip Dennis.

                                    I literally thought this was an actual player and kept gesturing that I give up and to stop invading me lol. Finally beat his ass

                                      Beat him as a sorc after about 15 tries and fully hollowed to with 50% health. Trick is to use walls around the courtyard and the fenced alcoves in the middle of the bridge. If you stand so that you can just get your spells past, then your spells will hit and his will hit the wall. A spell with pushback means you can hit him several times before he closes the distance. You can dodge his spells if you dodge diagonally or sideways just as the spell leaves his hand. Similarly dodging diagonally backward makes him miss his melee combo.

                                        When he invades run through the building and round past the first turtle dude jump past his swing there will be a hallow there as well avoid his attack, now try to wait for a second until the other turtle dudes fall down then run for the ladders then make ur way up to the roof the npc will follow you so run to the hole in the roof,when he comes for u go halfway down the ladders and wait for him to come down then start punching him until he falls of then climb up again he will follow u up when he does ,jump down then back up the ladders and repeat the process until he does.easy

                                          He’s horrible and will give ya a nice pounding but get him to fall off the cliff so he can’t slam his magic

                                            I thought he was a real player trolling me until I realized nobody can be that cruel. After the anal torture he inflicted on me I finally parryed him off the cliff. Fuck Armourer Dennis! Fuck him in his Armourer Asshole!

                                              Best Tactic to Win against him is to Lure him to the Ladder in that Area, You should get rid of the Turtles first so they won't bother you as much.
                                              After he climbed up, Hit him twice and drop down. When he goes down the Ladder Attack him from the Ladder so he will fall down and go up to repeat the whole thing again till you kill him.

                                              No Idea why they put Dennis The Anus Invader so Early in the game when you are barely geared with 4 Turtles.
                                              He literally with Violate you rectum with his Retarded Magic Shots that Track your movement, Yeah I used the 'R' Word because it's that stupid.

                                              • Seems like a real pain of an NPC invader for such a lower level. Killed him in Forest of the Giants but only because I spent the last two months playing DS Remastered, and on NG+++ so I was used to fighting things with higher health.

                                                  FINALLY beat this guy. I'm a melee player and kept getting destroyed by his magic attacks at range and quick attacks closer in.

                                                  Banished him using a Grand Lance buffed with Gold Pine Resin - I thought I read on another wiki that he has lightning weakness; can't confirm. I had a large leather shield, tho in retrospect I should have brought the Buckler for parrying. I wore only a helm and gloves, those and my shield chosen for weight and magic DEF purposes, to keep me under 36% equip load for the obvious benefits of better dodging and stamina management.

                                                  As an aside, I've actually made more progress over the last couple hours of playing with little or no armor than I had the entire time before when I just kept under 70% equip load. If you're a melee player, I can recommend giving the sub-36% equip route a try if you're dying to enemies who you KNOW you do enough damage to beat, but can't seem to find an edge.

                                                    WTF? I just had this guy on the brink of extinction in FotfG after dying countless times to him. I make some distance to heal, and he dissappears with the mess age "armorer Dennis has returned to their homeworld"... no souls, no drop, no nothing - has this ever happened to anyone else? What a load of bollocks.

                                                            Same as wiki for me - Fencer Sharron appeared in the first courtyard of Iron Keep, then Dennis appeared when I entered the keep after dying once.
