I think I played for 10 hours yesterday. Smiley: lol The obsession is real, once again.

I still have to clear the Royal Rat Authority and maybe kill the Ancient Dragon, though I usually just let it live. It doesn't give me anything I want, and the fight is just dumb, hacking away at its toes for forever.

I feel pretty much the same way about the ancient dragon. Meh, if I want souls Jeigh is easier.

The boss of this second DLC however is not. I've been learning it and just using the NPC summons so far but phase two is ROUGH in NG+. Lots of OHKO and unblockable. He makes Artorious look like a wuss lol.

I'll get him. And his little dog too. Actually unlike Artorious he has no little dog. But if he did I'd get it. Smiley: madSmiley: laugh

And a big FU goes to the Fume Knight. Who has fallen to thine own hands today solo in NG+. Had to respec to a flyns ring naked build using a rapier 2 handed for the winning solo strat. Then I learned him, oh did I learn him. I can see his moves coming now before he thinks to do them.

Awesome fight of course now that it is defeated I am going to offer my services to the masses. Poke Poke Poke. So much rolling and poking.

So I took a break to indulge in some Sims4. DON'T JUDGE ME! Smiley: lol I needed something shiny and happy as a change of pace.

Got bored with that and decided to try a onebro to keep me occupied since I have beaten all the DLC bosses now. So far so good up to Sentinels in Bastille. They are going to be rough I bet at SL 1.

Looking forward to the next DLC on the 24th. I begrudgingly grew to love DLC 2 as well. It was more fun on NG than NG+ I decided. With all those pre boss gauntlets and gank packs NG just had a better feel to it.

I like VN's so my counter judgement is also negated!

In other news it's official I am a nutter. SL1 run done. Just beat Nashandra. Started with mace and switched to the amazing stick of poking (Raw Rapier +10) as soon as I could get both work hook (+5 Dex) and Dex ring(+5 Dex) (right near the top of the second DLC).

Raw Light Crossbow (2H) also surprising good at +10. Other things I learned:

Not having adp/agility SUCKS. My roll window she is so short and I am so vulnerable.

Not having much life can also go here. One mistake and splat. Do you even HP bro?

Having tons of souls to spend on consumables is neat. 99 black bombs: check, 99 life gems: check, 99 Various dusts of sparkle weapon: check, 99 poison daggers: many good deal.

Biggest surprises:

The Rotten. Soloing this dude at SL1 shows that he has the potential to be a real prick. Or I was just really drunk. I think it's both.

Velstadt. Hammer gets anywhere near 10 miles of you. You dead.

Nashandra. Getting cursed and one shot by anything she does with almost no HP makes her not as much of a pushover.

PVP: I beat a tanked up greatsword weilding red invader. At SL 1... Fear the poking. (Key is I am light armor and can really push the AR on rapier with Flyns Ring, Ring of Blades, Leo Ring) I think I surprised him a bit.

Aso PVP: Some dude came into undead graveyard and invaded me while I was using mace to clear the gauntlet to preserve my rapier for the boss. Mace is terribad for pvp. Never gonna hit anyone with it's range. I tried, I gave him my best but I think he felt bad when he saw my onebro related name. Because he dropped me 62 Human Effigy after. Faith in Humanity= + 62

I'd like to think I will not attempt the surely masochistic DLC at SL1, but I probally will.

Read message:

"Help me"

DLC 3 was probably my favorite. Right up unto the challenge route. ***** all bronies forever. I'm just kind of trying it every so often to see if I make it with the hope of despawning the evil reindeer.

Spoiler: I must admit having the 3 helm never go hollow bonus thing is pretty useful. Human effigy? Dun need it.

I didn't know that was a thing. That's pretty cool.

My roommates bought all the DLC, so I'll get around to playing them as soon as I feel like playing that more than Diablo 3. Since I enjoy the heck out of that game for short periods and then get bored, probably a couple weeks.

I'm kinda thinking of doing a theme build through Demons, Dark Souls and Dark Souls 2 in preparation for Bloodborne(which I'm certain my roommate will buy and monopolize the PS4 for a few weeks, meaning I'll be free to use the spare room's PS3 with no worries). I'm thinking something in a mid-armor, axe wielding fire spells build. But that's not the main reason I decided to post.

This is the main reason I decided to post. It's a video VaatiVidya posted a couple days ago of a Dark Souls 2 song someone made. The subject of the song is Lucatiel.

I'm not sure how I feel about that video. Something just does not click right with it. On the other hand I did like Lucatiel and I loved wearing the Mirrah Armor set.

I should pick up Demon Souls for my PS3. I'm still torn on if I want to by a PS4 just for Bloodborne. Stupid console exclusives. I am trying to hold off on buying more consoles I will barely use.

If everyone is raving about it after release that might push me over the edge though.

I really been meaning to. I just watched some gameplay video, it really is not as dated looking as I expected. The fact that there is another Souls game with 100's of hours of love waiting for me on a system I already own and I have not picked it up is kind of baffling to me.

I'm leveling every class to 15 for no good reason in FFXIV though...

**** it. IT SHALL BE DONE! It's super cheap now as a classic too.

And because thinking about Dark Souls has made me realize how boring and shallow FFXIV is in comparison. I am now re-downloading DS2 to start a new character to tide me over until my Demon Souls gets here from Amazon.

So I made a new toon with the intent of using big weapons, str, and no shield. Something I have tried before but usually end up going back to fast weapons which is my comfort zone. Going to use a crossbow offhand when I am not 2H. I was pleasantly surprised how fast I got summoned for jolly co-op on Pursuer. Was virtually instant. I was also able to find a guy to hold him in place for the ballista my first attempt for myself. People must be playing more in anticipation of Bloodborne like us.

Loving the game again, looking forward to retroing out in Demon Souls, and then I still have Bloodborne waiting. Good times.

12.99 on PSN on Ps3! I got hooked up into DS2 over the weekend and never bothered to buy it off Amazon. So I just picked it up on PSN store. DLing now. Should tide me over till I give in and buy a PS4 with Bloodborne or the reviews sway me different. (Unlikely)

Sweet. Just remember these things and you'll do great:
1)Squidheads are *********
2)You can run in the swamp, but you can't roll.
3)Blessed weapons cheese the game.
4)Arrows have weight and Item Weight sucks.
4a)Always carry the Herculean Strength ring. You can get it by trading something found in 1-1 to someone at the Nexus.

I just finished my playthrough and started my Dark Souls run. Ended up going Estoc and fire magic, so I'll be continuing that into Dark Souls, with a plan to go Lightning Estoc and Pyromancy. May also get a Swag Sword and make it either Fire/Chaos or Raw(for weapon enchants and resins).

No worries gents, thank you both. I just got to Nexus last night after the DL. Should go to 1-1 tonight after work. I'm not trying to do a blind run or anything, I already was reading the wiki last night before bed a bit.

Rolled a Knight because I suspected that old school longsword might have the straight sword move set with both slash and thrust while 1H with shield. It does!

*I'll probably try out a Royal as well just to learn the games area's a bit easier with having an easy early ranged option.

Royal is OP. Almost always my starter class. Also, there's a ******* Sword in 1-1(dodge a rolling boulder to open a path, then go back to where the boulder fell). That one might also be up your alley.

But the real question: Did you manage to kill the tutorial boss? Also, male or female?

Rolled the royal this morning for a 10 minute test before work. Unlimited Soul Arrow in left hand rapier in right is pretty smexy. I got really good with rapiers during my SL1 DS2 run. Royal is female, knight was male. I might also try a hunter to see the bow mechanics for this one.

Tutorial boss wrecked me. Smiley: lol I thought about being all billy BA and beating it but I am still adjusting to the slower response in DeS compared to DS2. Plus I already knew from a video, when I was looking at gameplay before I bought it, he was supposed to wreck you and most people beat it to see the easter egg in NG+ or another run.

He's actually pretty easy on a royal. Hug up on him and go around him as he swings, then punish with the soul arrow. Also, female gets a pair of increased soul drop bracers in world 3-1 that are really nice.

Cool on bracers, glad I rolled pretty princess for my snobby royal then. Gonna roll with that I decided and try some other starters on subsequent plays. I know it does not matter in the long run but I tend to build themes somewhat around how I start. Subject to change at whim naturally.

If you need to go ranged make sure you have a bow and not a crossbow, as you could not manually aim with one in DeS and DS1.

Oh dear. It seems there have been some leaks of retail shots from Bloodborne and From has sold us a load of damaged goods. Horrible problems with the graphics from alpha to retail. They cut back significantly. They've gone too far, this time. They definitely need to be taken to task on this.

You got invaded in DS1? That's kinda neat in a way even if you did get lagstabbed. Smiley: tongue

I actually got invaded 3 times in DS2 this weekend in NG at low soul level, like Hiedie tower and giants low.

In DeS news I did 1-1 with both Royal and Hunter up to the first boss. Decided to go hunter for that sweet sweet longbow. Also replaced my ax with a longsword. I like the medium armor set up on the hunter alows for fast roll even with a decent shield.

Don't get me wrong, Royal is rock solid and was fun as well. I will use that one on my magic play through for sure. I just decided to make a quality build my first run instead and hunter was a solid start for that. Plus I like archers since I enjoy bow shooting IRL.

I use mine in an attempt to slay large animals and consume them. Not because I want to be a mockingjay. Smiley: lol

I'm a Libneck. I enjoy hunting, but am socially liberal. Plus I figure being good with a bow will come in handy during the inevitable coming zombie apocalypse. /s

Also just shooting on the target range is pretty Zen. I'm glad it's spring and I can get my arms back in shape for shooting.

Back on topic: 2-1 is really dark. Almost to the first boss in 2 I think.

*Edit: Spider down. Used bow, not ashamed.

Nothing wrong with that, though he is surprisingly easy to melee. Did you find the safe spot where the fireballs can't hit you? Also, the next zone has two paths down. Go left and take the "safer" route through the caves, find the pit of crystal lizards and get the Dragon Longsword +1. Or go right and hop down to the boss in no time flat once you get the platform locations down.

Do not got that way yet. Go right and finish killing the rest of the bosses, collect the Dragon Bone Smasher near the last boss' area once that world's Tendency is Pure White, and then commit suicide in Human Form over and over again until the World Tendency is Pure Black. THEN go to the Crystal Lizard pit and farm them.

You may also want to forge the weapon from the 4-2 Boss' Soul, as it increases rare item drop rates while equipped. Also look up the farming guide for the Crystal Lizard pit, as they can permanently disappear if you miss them and they get away.

I seem to recall that they'll respawn after you kill the boss, though. Lemme go check.

Edit: Ah. Here's the rules for lizard repops and such.

Crystal Lizard spawning rules:

Each Crystal Lizard keeps their own counter.
At the start of game, set all Crystal Lizards' counter to 1.
If the crystal lizard is killed, decrease count by 1.
If the crystal lizard escapes and dies (by falling off a ledge, for instance), decrease count by 1.
If the crystal lizard escapes by burrowing, decrease count by 1.
If a Boss in that world is killed, increase each Crystal Lizard count in that world by 1. For example, in World 2. If you kill all 3 Bosses. Each Crystal Lizard count = 4.

Yeah, DS1 and DS2 changed that where they would repop on the restart of the game as long as they were not killed by you.

Yeah I just used the cover spot with my longbow+3, he went down pretty fast. I did not have any fire resist gear or special shield so I played it safe since it was late and I wanted to get him down before bed.

So far I have just been doing the first boss of the worlds in order so I did:

1-1
2-1
and am now in 3-1.

I've read some different idea's about how you should approach order. Any suggestions from you DeS vets?

*Edit: This looks fairly reasonable for example:

Looks Like I am kind of following this without knowing I was.
