Did this video help you?

Dahpie: The weapon of all casuals.

samuraipanda85: Guys he doesn't mention this but if you use the short bow get your dexterity up to 12 so that you can use it properly. If you don't your hits will do only 2 damage. And the tail has about 200 hp I've heard. So short bow, 12 DEXTERITY, THEN you can take out the tail in about 20 hits. Also, get some heavy arrows, any will do (I think), but heavy is best.

MrRexel14: to anyone trying to do this i implore you DO NOT though a very powerful sword at the beginning of the game, the developers deliberately put it in as a trap once you become a high leveled player the drake sword won't scale with your level so it will suck because you can use other weapons that do scale and though may seem weaker and have lower attack points will do even more damage than the drake sword. it really is a trap and you'll regret using it

rikard1414: worst sword of all time it broak for me in 3 hit

Rockinrock28: I managed to do this with a crossbow on the perfect angle

everett818: I like the gravelord sword, it has 265 attack!

YouCast Clawsgaming: There is a weapon that is better near the beginning of Lordran at the top area you can find 2 black knights one has a club and the other a sword and shield the sword and shield one you can lure to a ledge that you can go onto another bit and you can kill the black knight that way and the base damage on the Black Knight Sword is 220

UnknownDante: I just shot 113 god damn long arrows in to this bastards tail with a shortbow and nothing. I only have 9 dexterity and 20 strength but COME ON! 

Spider Jerusalem: Drake the type of nigga to kill me lots of times.

DeAno Jackson: Posting this mostly for +Seth Schmitz (I know you said you just wanted to play and die alot, but I have to put this out there for you), but if you're playing *Dark Souls* and you want at least a slight leg-up on all the things that will repeatedly kill you in this game, you'll thank me.

Michael De la rosa: Pretty far into the game he says...look at his little health bar. I could kill him with one punch. He's still using the wooden shield. My bet is he just beat the Taurus demon. Pretty far into it he says...yeah ok buddy.

xaga97: what about the dark knight sword? I got it at 1st dark night and does 220

Vincent Velasco: I spent 5times during on the Taurus demon not knowing you can do a plunging attack... Hardcore mode xD

venom6149: EASY WAY TOO MAKE SOULS: just let the dragon burn the hollows to get 555 souls as you saw in the vid then go down stairs to the bonfire down the ladder you know the one and rest and rinse and repeat to get the easiest 555 souls for doing nothing :D

crazygamer0717: Hey can anyone help my drake sword needs repairing but I accidentally killed the blacksmith and I don't have enough souls to bring him back I have defeated dragon tarturus demon and gargoyles I killed the one near the gargoyles but im stuck in the capra demon because I don't want to use my drake sword because it will break any help?????????

Joshua Sutradhar: Drake sword is a flop....its better to get a uchigantana by killing the merchant in undeadburg..which enough to get through sen castle

KoDDaedra: i have shot that tail at least 70+ times now and i still don't have it I'm using a long bow with standard arrows any suggestions? and i tried quitting and reopening the game

Martycz5: can i do this with any class or only with hunter ?

Penney Jeramy: Its 13 hits consecutively on the tail.

catpilan20: I've shot him 30 times with a short bow and common arrows and his tail won't fall

Ryan c: Can u use souls arrows 

Ret4life: I never knew this... I tried it for the first time and im using about 50 arrows and still nothing. Any ideas?

Dennis Koutsoumbas: I kept shooting him with around 75 arrows but a little higher than that with Large Arrows but I didn't get it... Do I need to shoot that low? I once done it with another char with large arrows no need for bone arrows... 

Connor Peters: Can you do the same with a crossbow?

FaxingBerlin42: Got the Black Knight Sword as a pyromancer using fireball on the first black knight before I got this far. Needless to say, I was very lucky and never gave this sword a second glace.

Dungeon Scrub: The drake sword is crap at the beginning its good but once you get to new londo ruins your freaked

Toby White: Does it matter what kind of arrows I use 

Jesse Pauzé: Most overpowered sword early in the game

Dion Greco: I've gotten a weapon that is called Black Knight Sword and it has 205 dmg. (Strength Req: 20 Dexterity Req:18)

wildernes84: i hit drake with atleast 50 wooden arrows.. no tail :(

raz yeru: but where i buy?!?!?

daftvexxx: Thanks for the guide. I didn't have a bow so I had to use a crossbow to kill it. It took about 30 bolts, but it did the job and I got the sword!

Braden Canning: I got the drake sword. way too easy. Plus i was bored so I decided to kill the dragon using the same method. got 10,000 souls, but no drop :( oh well atleast I know I killed him

timruneskate96: In case you think it's not working/ it's taking long don't worry I was thinking the same thing but it worked.. Just took a lot of arrows, at least for me it did.. ALOT OF ARROWS

Jakub Michalak: Confirmed for doing it with crossbow as well! :D

PARANO1DxSN1P3R: Not working 

YourPalBadger: Drake Sword is a good sword for the first few beginning parts of the game. For the more difficult parts... Not so much. Upgraded, maybe, but it's such a pain to do so, it's not worth it. You're better off reinforcing a better weapon of choice when you have the option to do so. It's not a trash weapon, it just grows gradually more useless as the game progresses.

YourPalBadger: It's cute how he thinks he's "pretty far into" the game. You can get to this area of the game in less than 10 minutes from the beginning. 

m1 Garand: Didn't work

如意ボウ: It still works as of the latest patch. Just bring 60-70 arrows if you're worried about them not being enough, you *will* eventually get it.

Magnuslix: I just got dark knight halberd and is 245 attack 

SHI RAGE: I got a 2 hand sword that does 265 dmg from the catacomb at the cemetary :) very nice weapon!! got it from the start.

joe vu: how do you get the bow

zantku: The first person mode didn't work for me, all I could do is third person.... But at the very least I had alot of arrows so I got it!

shiftiback: i already got the Dark Knight Sword so don't really need the Drake sword

WhatR2D2Saw: "to equip the bow and arrow you go into your inventory and equip the bow and arrow" noice.

user197: Nothing is casual bout this game nub

MegaTheshiz: God damn I wish I knew about this. I'm playing through for my first time and all I have is a Long Sword +5 and I'm getting freaking beat. Right now I'm on Darkroot Garden, really thinking about replaying the whole game.

SilentTree: ITS A TRAP 

Joshua Sutradhar: Drake sword is a flop....its better to get a uchigantana by killing the merchant in undeadburg..which enough to get through sen castle
