Hello everyone and welcome to day 23 of 31 Days. Today’s song is
This song can be a very tense one. It certainly had me on edge and drums up many memories of super massive fire breathing snake heads. I never thought I would ever type something like that and look at me now. What I like about the song is that it really feels like a back and forth of sorts, you and the 3 (Shadow of Yharnam). I can’t exactly explain it, but it’s very fitting for all three of them. When I listen to this song I can see the 3 of theme acting on their own, and yet in tandem with each other as if they’re in sync with one another. This fight already has some linked mechanics where if one watcher reaches a certain point in their HP pool they will become more aggressive and even transform, as if they can sense the danger posed to one of their own, or themselves. That said it’s wise to lower each shadows HP to around the same level.
I haven’t been able to find much about the Shadow of Yharnam in terms of lore. It’s a mystery to me as to their purpose or how they became what they were by the time you encounter them. The only thing I do know is that these multi-boss bosses seem to be a running thing is souls/borne. The 4 Kings, Living Failures, and Abyss Watchers. Each one does carry their own fairly unique twist on things though, which has served these encounters well. Any thoughts on these fights or perhaps any lore you may have, as always feel free to share.
