Gold Skeleton Black Phantom Strategies
These guys carry massive two-handed cleavers. While they are slower and don't roll around, they advance with the cleaver up to block 50% of incoming damage. Due to the size of their weapons, they aren't stunned by most attacks. They also dish out a lot of damage and use simple combos that can quickly kill you. Whenever possible, try to lure these guys out for a 1 on 1 fight. Trying to fight two at once can be extremely difficult.
Note that Sticky White Stuff makes your weapon extremely potent against any gold-armoured enemies. A blunt weapon with Sticky White Stuff on it (or Enchant Weapon) will make short work of these guys. Approach slowly and let him begin his massive swing at you. Dodge it, then smash him a couple of times. If possible get behind him for another hit. Alternatively, you can strike with a heavy attack just as he lets his guard down to attack you and then get in a single quick attack immediately after, then back away until he brings his guard back up and repeat.
They're actually really easy one to one if you have a weapon with knockdown and a decent shield with a high hit resistance. Simply let them strike your shield when doing their basic diagonal slashes and they'll rebound after one hit. Simply knock them down with a strike from your weapon, and follow up with another before they can get to their feet.
Ripostes and Backstabs aren't recommended. Timing is very difficult, and trying to get behind them is virtually impossible without Soul Remains, on account of their large horizontal attacks, and their only locations being near cliff sides, and/ or with a Golden Skeleton friend.
