We spent the best part of a day falling to Mytha, The Baneful Queen, boss of Earthen Peak. Only later would we learn that burning down a windmill by interacting with a specific point with a torch in hand would drain the poison pool that had made the fight such a chore. Obtuseness is central to the Souls games’ appeal, of course, but sometimes a little guiding hand wouldn’t go amiss.
