evens continue with my NG+5 character on the way to max difficultyodds start a new character
>>240594142>3v2 is a gank
>>240594142I wish there was a way to laugh at a particular player so they wouldn't have to see you to feel shame. VERY GOOD carvings only travel so far.
>>240594290well it was 3v1 then i got some another invader on my side
>>240594327>rushing ariandel chapel on a newish build>invader spawns at the other side of the bridge>spend a minute trying to bait eachother on the bridge>he breaks it>faintly hear "very good" across the gap>pretty sure he patches sqautted in my general directionWhat a lad
>>240594879I had the reverse of that situation. I broke bridge on my side and he had to do the level for me. I tried nailing him with a well-timed seed, but that didn't get him. Eventually I just felt guilty about having this man run through 80% of the DLC for one invasion, and suicided.
>>240594327I wish we had the "look skyward" or "No way" gestures still.
>>240595330Always felt "no way" was more in a light hearted banter kind of way. Look skyward was basically just you calling them a fucking retard
*turns PVE and early PVP into a joke*
>>240594142invader iq has gone down the drain latelyprobably the holiday sale
>>240595506I used this in DaS1 alongside Dark Bead. I hit people more with it than Dark Bead because everybody saw the staff twirling and rolled to dodge a Dark Bead and ate an orb straight to the face. Then, with time, they lost their ability to dodge Dark Bead.
>>240595676>corvian greatknifemy nig
>>240595506Tbh pve in dark souls is a joke anyways
>>240595676every fellow invader recently has attacked me rather than the hostwhat the fuck is going on?
>not cosplaying hodrick and invading at pontiff just to kill the aldrich players for being so dumb
>>240592849What platform? I want to try my luck
>>240596269I dont know but its so fucking retarded to be being chased by another red who is getting running r1'd by 3 phantoms and the host
>>240594142>invading at pontiff>spent 30 minutes looking for a host>he and his buddy are hiding in corners with obscuring rings >the moment I find them they attack mewhat was the fucking point exactly? What if I never found you?
>>240596269redditors acting as double agents turning 2v4s into 1v5s
>>240596414Ps4 cathedral but im about to go to bed. We'll be back at it monday tho
>>240596714What SL? That’s my platform and preferred invasion area so I might actually give some good resistance! I’m off Monday too. I’m sure I’ll regret this but I’ll post my psn if you’d message me
>boot up my old DS2 save>speedrun through Shulva without a single deathI still got it in me. Anyone wanna coop Elana, Sinh and/or Gank squad? NG+5 37M Soul Memery
>>240596651they wamted to play hide and seek
How do I upgrade my weapon in DoA?
>>240596865Sorry. Just 700K soul memory.
post mobs you still struggle with to this day
>>240596830Sl36 +4 and nah dude dont post your psn id cause ill forget to message you anyways. We normally play from 10pm to 2am EST so just try around that time.
>>240597020Rickert exists. Andre exists too, but he's moved right nearby. In this mod, Sen was given an actual identity as a Blacksmith Goddess, so you'll find most embers you'll need around things relating to Sen.
>>240595676I invaded multiple times after Pontiff and EVERY FUCKING RED INVADER ATTACKS ME!I swear to god they're retarded or something. 9 times out of 10 I just fucking hide and wait now because you don't know if these retards are gonna kill you.
>>240597537Half the time i fight these guys i somehow get clipped into the floor
>>240597537These things fucking suck to fight. Just giant damage sponges and if you die it's usually because of some janky hitboxes.
>>240597576Alright. I beat Taurus Demon and Profane Image but now I don't now where to go. I guess I'll do Sen.
>>240597821DoA is super open once you do beat Sen's Forge. You can go basically anywhere at that point and everywhere is ready for you. I'm still puzzling it out.
>>240597264>>240597537>the chosen undead fears the torch hollow>>240597821consider paying moonlight butterfly a visit, or get a blessed weapon and head to the catacombsit never hurts to poke around in new londo, either
>wow what the fuck Daughters of Ash makes Pinwheel even easier, you can just stunlock him to dea-
>>240598143C'mon he's still really easy. I still died to him though, really high damage caught me off guard.
>>240597264all the knights
>>240598143god i hate that pinwheel fightfuck the mod creator for making trapped bonfires, too - they're bullshit
>>240598158wow these animations get worse every time i see them
>>240597264I hate these two assholes
>>240598370I survived that with like 1 hp and I was shitting myself
what makes people think that lothric knight sword is better than longsword?>it has more rangeaccording to lebbit findings, lks has 19 units of range while ls has 18 >it has more criticalirrelevant since you riposte with your dagger not your sword>it has more damageat +10 and 30/30 int/fth, a dark ls has 480ar while lks has 484ar so in the end you're spending 9 skill points for 1 unit of range and 4 ar, which is just stupidlongsword is THE best straight sword of the game, not lothric
>>240598532i wouldn't mind if you had some way of checking beforehand, but as it stands it's just fucking "welp, time to see if this is an actual checkpoint or if i'll just fucking explode"
>>240598712It's just more retarded shitters going on about their "balder swag sword" analogueFuck them and their ugly ass stick sword
>>240598712>longsword is THE best straight sword of the game, not lothricBy your own data you're wrong, it's just the lks has a higher requirement.
>>240598753The tell is that real bonfires that you can actually light have wispy embers swirling around them. Compare a typical unlit bonfire in the world to the dead Firekeeper Firelink bonfire; one has embers, the other is a static object you can't actually interact with aside from prompting text.
come invade me, SL90 PCthese aldrich players suck
>>240599283>SL90>hanging out at Aldrich'scringe
Manus killed me right as Artorias dealt the killing blow. I got the covenant and revived right where I died, I got the greatshield too. Did I miss anything interesting by dying or would Sif have disappeared anyways and left the greatshield?
>>240598413Guy's framerates are fucked up. It looks a lot better in my machine.
>>240599359gotta let the blues get their ears
Give me the green pillWhat's funner, invading or dueling in the current meta? Haven't played dks 3 since 2016.
>>240598982your returns from spending 9 points to wield lks is literally none - you're better investing said points into vigor, endurance, attunement or vitalityunless, of course, you're a sl120 retard - then it doesn't matter because at such high sl the concept of "build" doesn't exist anymore, you just hit all softcaps and play arena like the drooling retard you are
>>240599616Oh yeah, and I got sent back to New Londo. Do I just go back to the dlc entrance? Because I have a feeling it won't be there anymore.
>>240600135>duelingDon't do this. Ever.
>>240596865Still around, on PC btw. I'm gonna rush through the DLCs unlocking the bosses if anyone wanna join any. Only downed Elana so far.
>>240600603>not playing youtuber meta build #28
Why do people think invaders aren't going to BC out when they have SL 200 phantoms?
>>240595676Password summoned ganker who is not overleveled so it's not obvious that he is together with hostHad them way too often, every red you see who is not attacking host is a traitor
>>240600629What are you, a nerd?
Can anyone post an invite link for the discord? I used to be in there, been playing dark souls 3 again, need some people to duel.
The Manus fight in DoA is pretty sick not gonna lie
>>240600629Dueling is the only thing fun in this game (aside from facerolling 1v3's until you get those ever exceedingly rare goobers that fuck up and give you the win)
>>240601402What about it? It was the same as usual for me. Killed him with like 6 spells though so maybe I just killed him too quick for anything new to happen.
>>240601402I gotta say, when I saw the red eyes moving around below me and heard the sound of fighting I wasn't sure what to expect when I dropped, but it was pretty fucking rad.
>>240597419Will do, I’ll shout you out here around then anyway
Can somebody help me to move a few items from one char to another in DS3 on PC?I can drop you some stuff too
>>240601562Did you do the dlc after getting the lordvessel? I heard that changes how it plays out, you might have missed out on the changes.
>>240602095I did the DLC right before Gwyn as I normally do it on any playthrough, so yes iI had the lordvessel.
>>240598413>judging the game by an 800x450 webm of a game at it's lowest settingsummmthis gotta be bait right
>>240601562You definitely missed something big.
>>240602182When you entered the dlc, where did it drop you off? Right before Sanctuary Guardian as usual?
>>240602271Yeah.>>240602230Oh well, can you spoil it for me please? I didn't love the mod and not itching to replay it anytime soon, maybe I will after it gets more polished.
>>240602387You fight Manus alongside Artorias. He's already fighting Manus when you enter.
>>240600351They aren’t none, they are:1 unit of rangeHigher criticalHigher ar - dark infusion is the only infusion where the ar is remotely that close. For both sharp and heavy it’s more than 100 AR difference, and lightning LKS is S scaling
>>240602387I just finished the first part so I can only tell you what I experienced so far:You're dropped off right at the entrance of The Abyss instead, and when you reach Manus' boss room you can hear fighting before you drop. When you drop, Artorias is there and Sif is being protected by the shield. You fight Manus alongside Artorias and when you win Artorias seems to be consumed by the Abyss and jumps away in rage. I can only assume I'll have to fight him next.
>>240597264>OH SHIT HE STOOD U->3 hit spin combos you to death
>>240601157Because they are used to going up against opponents who are capable and aren’t pussies
>>240602501>>240602603Oh, that's cool. Isn't Manus much easier though? Feels a bit lame since he's one of the few remotely hard bosses in the game.Do you not fight Artorias at all then if you do it that way?
>>240602618The first thing I did in DS2 was arrive in mejula, and then wander into that area and learn how to parry those mother fuckers every single time they swing. it wasn't until later that I realized I had no business being there at SL20 (at least on my first playthrough anyways).
>>240602742Well he still managed to kill me regardless. All it really changes is you sometimes get a little breathing room if you stand on the opposite end and Manus decides to target Artorias instead, but his attacks are still so large and reckless you're probably gonna get hit anyways. And Artorias seemed to do very little damage during the fight. I was actually worried he might end up dying.
>>240602742After the dlc is done you go visit Sif's room for the real fun
>>240603062S P O I L E D
>>240602659>highest possible hp for the level>highest possible stamina>highest possible fp>highest possible equip load>massive amounts of bonus DR from all the high stats>doing as much damage as a glass cannon>mid rolling in heavy armor>with an ultra weapon>throwing vestiges everywhere on cooldownYeah no SKIP. Fuck you and your friends
>>240603018>>240603062I don't like how obscure the requirements for things are. "Just retrace your steps thoughout the whole game 10 times after every event becuase of this new thing that you get no clue of" is just retarded design. The doll and Gaping dragon at least gave you a clue, but many other things are just nonsensical.
making an artoriasleft or right?
>>240603407Yeah that's my main complaint too
>>240603407Oh don't worry I hate it too, I'm just piecing it together from posts here. Speaking of, how do Gaping Dragon?
>>240600720i wish i had a character up that high
>>240603594Grab the doll in lower burg then go visit his room. Don't die.
>>240602092Please? I can drop you literally anything
>35 vitality in DoA>still get 1/2-shot by everything in the DLC
>the invisible golem at the illusion wall near SifCome the fuck on
>>240603803the best thing is that he spawns halfway through his swing so if you're not expecting him there (which you have no reason to) he's most likely to just knock you the fuck off
>SL 106>only two old ones killed>700K soul memoryIs this fine for DS2? SL 90-100 is endgame in most soul games but it seems DS2 is way longer than usual. Should I stop leveling or what?
>>240603862yeah that's exactly what happened to me
>>240604117You usually end around 120 in Ds2.
>>240601176that guy invaded after i did, he wasn't with the gankers
>beat Manus>go back to Sif's room>he's here now>alright cool>fight him like always>phase 2 music kicks in>mfwThis is not okay.At least Artorias seems to damage Sif so I could have a shot if I position myself correctly
Where's the +15 ember in DoA?
I want to play a build focused on pyromancy in dark souls 3. What stats should I focus on? How much attunement do I need? Are there any pyromancies in dark souls 3 that require specific stats?
>>240604395Enjoy playing the most braindead class in all of dark souls
>>240604395Pyromancy is more of a secondary skill in DaS3
is undead king jar jar binks just a reskinned allant?
>>240604454>>240604476I mean sure, I've never dabbled in pyromancies. I don't know what to expect or what even the good spells are. It's just for fun. New experience.
>>240604117It's fine, if you're exploring and co-oping and what not.
>>240597058>>240603613Too bad anons. I know I'm one of the few madmen going that high but it's my first character that I'm planning on reaching NG+7 on so I stopped giving a crap about SM. Currently SL300+. Would probably be fun to coop since at this stage bosses are really really tanky and you can't just faceroll them, but activity at this SM tiers is close to nil.
>>24060439525 int/25 fth is enough to unlock all pyros as usablea lot of the better ones take more than one slot to use, so attunement is tightpyromancy spell buff scales with both int and faith
I'm playing the PC version of PtDE, trying to earn some Sunlight Medals but I'm just not getting summoned after like three days of trying. I'm SL 40 with my sign at the bonfire at the bottom of Blight town. I thought this would be the best location for my SL, but is there a better location?
Anybody face this guy "you only parry" at pontiff? Motherfucker running a dark build with hornet ring and somehow knows how to dead angle every weapon in the game pixel perfect. Either this guy is cheating or he's got like 5000 hours in the game.
>>240604720Are you using DSCM? If not, do. Otherwise try O&S at like SL50, should be one of the most popular summon spots. Otherwise you can farm sunlight maggots in Izalith.
>>240604674Post your stats and build, plz
>>240604720SL40 might be a bit too high for blighttown. Go to AL and try there, or alternatively just farm maggots lategame
>>240604720O&S near SL50 is probably the peak of co-op
>>240604870I was under the impression that DSCM was for connecting with friends. Does it just make it easier to connect in general?It's weird tome that I would be too high level for Blight Town. Numerous times I've just bought all the arrows and fire bombs I could possibly carry instead of leveling because I wanted to avoid getting over leveled.
>>240605256People don't tend to summon for quelaag, also, especially if it means burning additional humanity before the run across the poison swamp
>>240604887It's basically a jack of all trades at this point. Started out as a glasscannon sorcerer with 65 int but now I've hit all softcaps so most levels do jack shit on any stat. I have an insane array of spells and maxed out weapons to use and a laughable amount of spice to get down the requirements to any spell to bare minimums. I like twinblades so I use those a lot but I use shit like FUGS and Crypt sword as well if I'm feeling ungabunga.>>240605256You're not wrong that it can be used for that, but it apparently also fixes the janky connectivty of the original and gives you an additional pool of players to connect to.
>>240604560It kinda sucks in DaS3 since it scales with INT and FTH. I'd recommend playing DaS1 since pyromancy scales with nothing except your glove's level, it's very fun.
>>240604373Gough has it.
>>240605498im enjoying pyro in 3 so far just because i can actually use more than 6 fire orbs
>>240605805you could always attune 2 copies of orb in NG
>>240605994you can't get 2 copies of fire orb afaik, fireball yeah but that's the worst one
>>240606129Quelana and Laurentius each have a copy. Great fireball is limited to 1 though and the chaos one is a 1 copy only everI'm more annoyed by great combustion having only 1 stack, although black flame is good enough to make up for that
Are there any meme weapons to piss people off like the pickaxe that can actually chain two attacks?
Just played the sunken king dlc in ds2. Now I finally understand why people say ds2's bosses are gank squads.
>>240606315i don't remember quelana having fire orb, til
>>240605780>Gough's key is on top of that clusterfuck cathedral full of 1hko sorcerorsPASKAPUHETTA
>>240606672I only discovered it today when I had 4 stacks of it available in NG+
>Running through ringed city dlc for the first time in like a year>Forgotten how to deal with the bullshit machine gun angle fuckers Like the second one in the shit swamp, I'm under the impression that I used to just Sprint/recover/sprint to the root ramp to get out of its range and smack the "controller" but now I can't fucking remember and I'm just dying again and again
>>240607119They got nerfed tho. I remember them almost oneshotting me and now I could run past them without even losing significant amount of hp at all
>>240604720Why do you need sunlight medals? If you just want 10 for the covenant just get the ones from chests n stuff.
where is Quelana in DoA?Who is the person that enters the Ceaseless Discharge fog gate?
>>240607358Meh, sitting at 36-39 phys absorb, 23-26 elemental absorb, 1438 hp embered, sub 70 weight.Still, sprinting that stretch got me killed three times. Got a little lucky on the third, moved around a bit more, missed a few spikes, got to the back of the root to heal with like 1/5th my health left
>>240607728Run in a zig-zag pattern
In DoA when is a good time to do the DLC? Im SL 51
Alright, I don't think I can beat Sif as I am now. Will the questline get all fucked up if I go get the lordvessel now?
>>240597537>>240597703>>240597750>does grab attack>well out of range but dodge anyway>get teleported into its graspThis is fine.
>>240608565From went full gook
>>240608116Well I guess I'm going anyways.
>>240608116>>240609284K...keep me posted
The very good carving has the ok hand symbol on it
>imagine playing DS3 and trying to invade for 30 minutes and no one appears>imagine ALSO popping a dried finger to try and get invaders for an hour and no one appears. >imagine now that you died due to fall damage, then pop an ember while you wait for your friend to come back to farm him some souls, go to the kitchen for a water, and come back dead because some faggot in thorn armor was rolling into you to death after a backstab from 20 seconds of AFK.
>>240609886where, what SL, etc
>>240610019SL 170, in the painted world on NG+2 to get my friend free souls while I murk shit. I was TRYING to get invaders for so long and then one pops up randomly after 2 hours of trying stupid shit when I'm busy farming him souls. Had 1.3m souls I had to retrieve, was just too busy trying to power level him.Really contemplating using CE to just give myself those souls for that 6 free levels. We wanna do max lvl PvP.
>>240610149I think even SL 120 only invades upwards to like SL152?
trying to get sunlight medals in dsr ps4, anyone need help? I'm in ng+ but only at o&s
DaS3 is only good because pvp is active
>>240610335it's Host level x1.10 + 10. So 100 would mean 120's the highest invasion. 200 would mean 230 is highest level. Wasn't really mad about any level differences, I just hate that I wanted to PvP for hours, then I go AFK after dying to grab a water and this tard backstabs me then rolls me to death while I try to roll away and estus at least once.
>>240607663quelana in the same spotthats a random sister of chaos add
>>240608098You'll be fine, but I suggest a bow if your vitality/armor combo is low. Bloatheads will 2-shot you, dark bead 1-shot
>>240598712It doesn't matter because the gotthard twinswords are better than both.
>>240610805I thought they changed it to SL * 1.1 + 20 for red orb upwardsOh well
>>240611054I gotthard when I saw the dancer :^)
>>240602618What's the deal with these guys, why are there so many of them that sit there and let you combo them to death before they get a chance to fight back?
>>240607641A friend of mine picked the game up for the first time recently, and I want to help him through the sections that I can since he's since he has very little free time between being the pastor of a church in a small town while also interning as a chaplain at a hospital so he can be properly ordained.So between my sessions with him I want to get my co-op skills polished and more geared up so I can be a better sun bro for my bro, without getting too leveled.
DoA has limited slabs, or are Darkwraiths still farmable?
>>240611728Sounds like you guys should be in way of white. Really co-op is a joke, if you can solo stuff you can carry in co-op. You don't need to practice, just try to find the balance between doing nothing and beating the game for someone because that can ruin the experience.
>>240612115Isn't the only benefit to Way of White that you get more occurrences of resonance spots?
How much more dangerous would Havel have been to fight if he didn't go hollow?
>>240611625they all stand up once you reach a certain point in the game i thinki dont remember when
all in all latria is pretty boring3-2 is interesting visually and the swamp idea at the bottom is nice, I'm not sure what in the everloving fuck the big thing you drop that the ugly scorpion abominations crawl out of is supposed to be, but it's very linear and there's only like two different enemiescannibals (not sure what the english name is, 3-2 gargoyle bosses) were really boring too, I basically just facetanked the shit out of them and the first one was almost dead already when the second one joined inold monk pve is dull as shit, I guess it's more interesting as a pvp fight if you're not facing a scraping speartrue boss were the black phantom cthulhu looking dudes5/10 it doesn't even give many souls but at least 3-2 looks very cool and the lovecraftian abominations are neatshrine of storms remains my favorite area I loved everything about that place>>240613192when you kill dragonrider iirc
How true is this pic?
>>240613659I don't have much trouble getting activity as a Watchdog

>>240613659covenants are so bad in 3 besides moundmakers and maybe aldrich
Chaos Greataxe +5 with 10 Humanities can reach 729 AR, more than Chaos Demon Greataxe's 595 AR.
>>240613789What lvl?I'm 26 and I get like 2 invasions in half an hour.
Can someone explain giantdad to me? I thought the mask of the mother was preferable before the dark wood grain ring was nerfed, why was giantdad a thing?
>>240615469it was literally just a memedwgr midrolls weren't a thing anymore so the father mask's weight increase let you fastroll in giants
>>240615469its a meme build that shits on people who suckanyone good at pvp would crush that build
>>240615594>>240615645Oh, I didn't realize giantdad came after the nerf. that makes sense then.
>>240614179they're all fucking copypastes, it's disgusting how poorly executed they are in comparison to earlier titlesds2 got it the best, in that there's a covenant to appeal to most/all players>shitters or new players (way of blue)>co-op (warrior of sunlight)>wannabe policemen (blue sentinels)>invaders (brotherhood of blood)>forestfags (bell keepers)>duelfags (dragon remnants)>challenge-runners or people who are into fisting (company of champions)it even had two weirder, really niche/experimental options in the rat king's servants (invader is fighting against the trap-laden level that the host has set, but without the headache of actual ganks) and the pilgrims of dark (extra zone/perma-seeded, guaranteed gank-free pvp area)all it was really suffering from was a lack of whole red/blue eye orbsds1 was almost as good, but some of the covenants needed way more interactivity (way of the white, princess' guard, chaos servants)

How do you tell if you're overleveled?
>>240617974killing everything super quick (like 1-2 shotting without a ugs is generally a sign) or taking piss for damage from everyone. it's hard to overlevel without specifically grinding for souls
>>240617782you can find the bow elsewhereI think it's a gameplay thing, composite is the best and bow cheese ruins the creator's vision

>>240618460They could unironically fix the Darkmoon covenant by making them being able to invade world of people who are invading somebody else by using the red eye orb.So if Darkmoon uses red eye orb, he gets into an invasion queue, but instead of invading normal hosts he will invade people who pressed the red eye orb to invade actual hosts.
>>240618550It's pointless to separate the two though. I played near 2k hours of Ds2 and only saw a blue sentinel show up a single time when I invaded.
>>240618664I just think the idea of a pvebab cov like WOW or WOB isn't inherently badmaybe just roll it into sunlights

Why aren't there any railings? Fucking architects
I'm sick of shields. What are some decent off hand weapons to use?
Anons, is it just me or do the elevators in DS3 completely break the immersion? And the ladders too.Examples would be that huge ladder to Old Wolf and the ladder behind the dancer, they seem so out of place there, especially while there are tons of circular stairs around that are for some reason closed.The elevators are stupid because most of the times they don't fit. The Archives Elevator for example is fine, while the Elevator at the very beginning of Lothric's Caste looks like shit, and every single elevator shaft is just a cheaply textured hole.I mean why not design that shaft at least somehow more interesting? Like put spikes inside or something but don't make it look like endless hole with same texture, it's shit.On the other hand I should consider that the game was designed with consoles primary in mind so I shouldn't bother about such lack of quality but still.

>>240623646>tons of other shitExcept for the PKCS, every other meta weapon is better on a dark/pyro build.

I wanna be a hipster-caster. Should I go for pyromancy or hexes in pvp?
>>240624594pyro but don't use cbv or black flameeven gcfo is a bit too mainstream, but it's forgivable if you freeaim it
>>240623776The only reason to farm Swordgrass is for the greatshield and the all rings achievement. It's not difficult to run through AoA and TRC to snag the DLC goodies.
>>240624594if you're going pure casting, pyro is more novelotherwise for general use, hexing is probably it
>>240624594If you want to be a hipster, then go 30/30 with Crystal Chime or Sunless Talisman.
I think heavy armor might be OP in DS1.

>>240625284>heavy armors shouldn't provide high defense and poise, they should be on par with medium armors, making the former completely meaningless
>>240625514the heavier armors are mechanically distinct in 3, but their weight units (everything's gotten heavier somehow overall) and vit as a stat are the issueif equip load was primarily increased by end or something and had secondary gains in other stats like vig and str it would be less obnoxious

DS1 is shit.
In DS3, if I am AFK, is there any way to tell if I have been invaded while I was away when I come back to my computer?
>>240626923The mod maker posted something about that on the mod page on Curse and he said something along the lines that it was fixed in an update, so you might want to look into that.
>>240628853It shakes the controller when someone joins your game (either cooperator or invader) so unless you have vibration turned off you'll get notified that way if you're tabbed outI seem to recall 2 flashing its tab on the taskbar when someone joined your game at one point but I might be misremembering
>>240628853try to homeward boneif it's greyed out you've been invaded
>>240629338My controller isn't cool enough to have vibration. I'll try to pay attention to the task bar, assuming I get invaded sometime.>>240629486>if it's greyed out you've been invadedThat was my plan for escape, thwarted before I even had a chance.

>>240628928>Cool>half the game being the same basic zombies, dogs, and rats>most of the hazards are from the environment rather than the enemies>the bosses are absolute jokes, the first one dying like a bitch to a plunge attack, the second also dying to plunge attacks or by falling off the bridge, capra demon made hard by throwing more fucking dogs into his boss room and making it cramped as hell, iron golem falling off the bridge, fucking pinwheel, o&s being cheesed behind the pillars, gwyn - the final fucking boss - being parry bait, etc.>the "nonlinearity" not actually existing unless you have already beaten the game or for some reason decided to choose the key as your starting item (which nobody did their first playthrough), even then most areas are locked off from exploration via gwyn's seal until they progress normally>the absolute atrociousness of the last half of the game with the gimmickiness of new londo ruins and lowering the water, duke's archives and the boring levers and forced death, crystal cave and the bullshit invisible bridges, catacombs and tomb of giants pretty much requiring a light source and holy weapon, and the disaster that is demon ruins and lost izalith>the cringe npcs such as the generic knight who does nothing but stare at the sun all day, the fatass who keeps finding himself in stupid situations, the obviously evil guys who love laughing their evillest and who - surprise! - end up tricking you, and a few guys who do nothing but sit around and go boohoo>the game having many many known cheeses with weapons such as the drake sword and armor with high poise such as havel's just allowing you to tank everything, easily the most cheesable game with the simplest, most abusable enemy ai>many of the areas such as blighttown and seath's boss arena generating huge amounts of lag>the game being such a disaster that they had to remaster it only a few years later and they ended up somehow making it even worse
>>240631087All your complaints are from the perspective of someone that knows the game inside out. Every fucking area in every DS game is boring once youve played through it, everyone just runs past mobs. Ive literally cheesed O&S once, the rest of the time I'd fight them properly. I've also never had the Iron Giant fall off, what kind of gay complaints are these anyway. Also the non-linearity is fucking great, fuck you fag. I had alot of fun invading in Demon Ruins and Catacombs.
How are you all taking to Daughters of Ash?>Making my way up backwards through Blight Town to reach The Depths>managed to not die on the way up at all>worried Depths will just be filled to bursting with curse fuckery>It's actually very managable and the only time I die is like a bitch to a giant rat when I become temporarily retarded>Found key to what must be the upper Depths, and hopefully the way to the loop back to FirelinkThat was pretty fun. I remember back when I played through for the first time on PS3, the FPS was so choppy in Blight Town. Never dreamed I'd see a day where I could be confident in that jump to where the iato normally was, or casually stroll across those moving bridges. This is the closest I feel I'll ever get to the first time through the area, if only in terms of enemy and item placement to make me explore every nook and cranny. This is nice.
>>240631837it's shiti stopped playing almost immediately
>>240631837realized the mod was trash after seeing the changes they made to stray demon and nito, promptly uninstalled
>>240603803Honestly I kinda wish they hadn't changed a few things, that being one of them. I mean I didn't mind it, but it felt a bit silly, could have just put an item there if you really didn't want the bonfire to be there.
>>240593987Its way more comfortable for me to play with M+KB, but I always heard that's like being a cripple. What are the actual advantages of the gamepad? Should I learn how to play on it? Because I suck major dick with it.
>>240632098>What are the actual advantages of the gamepadOmnidirectional moving. The only thing you can't achieve with keyboard. Pretty impactful in pvp.

>>240631976>mad about strayI can't even imagine how you'd handle the O&S or garg rematch
>>240593987Just picked up DS2 : Sotfs. I peeked at the combat mechanics and scaling so I don't invest hard on a shit build and hate my playthrough, but I have not looked at any of the areas/enemies/bosses/etc.My rough plan is to roll Cleric, use the Mace and eventually go for Bandit Axe (probably Lightning) to cover up any weaknesses I have, pick up probably a crossbow and the odd pyromancy. Is this well rounded enough for clearing all the PVE shit?
>>240633682i did gargoyles. they were ass, but not as ass as a dozen torch hollows
>>240633780Anything is viable in PVE.
>>240633780DaS2 cleric can be a fun path to go, shame it will never reach the glory days of launch before they nerfed the everloving fuck out of miracles. I think they even added an addition 20% nerf on top of that in error, if I'm remembering correctly.
>>240633038Why are you like this
>>240633780I'm nearing the end of my playthrough, from what I can tell the mace is really really good and I also have used the heavy crossbow heavily in some situations (you can aim if you two hand it). Seems like a good plan.
>>240633780>Is this well rounded enough for clearing all the PVE shit?No, it's impossible.
Is remastered ded already?i have been trying to invade + get summoned for like 20 mins
What's the verdict on the Daughters of Ash hack?
>>240633780You'll be fine.
>>240634626Yeah sadly but i cant blame people for getting tired of the same old wannabe backstab pro great club moms every fucking invasion
Really cant tell if I'm playing better at <30% equip load with carthus bloodring or I'm just more careful. I know its roll distance, but I swear I'm getting hit less..
>>240634703I had fun. If you compare DoA to what SotFS did to the basegame, DoA wins it out.
What's the point of the Way of White and Princess Guard covenants?
How are str/quality builds in DS3 right now? Are they good for pve and pvp? I've been only using onehanded dex weapons and I want to try something different. Pic related is what I'm looking at for a 75 pvp build. Also, any 2h/heavy-ish weapon recommendations?
My solution to armour type for the next ds game would be following: there are 3 armour types, light, medium and heavy. If you equip at least one of the medium type you will always midroll, if you equip heavy you will always fatroll but medium armour gives you some ok defense and DS3 type poise, while heavy armour gives you serious defense and ds1 type poise.With this there will be no point in mixing plate with ugly cloth and heavy armour would mean something although having also a downside.Str provides multiplicator for Vitality. Equipping over 100% load for any armour class will prevent you from rolling like it does now.What do you think about this, anons?
>>240635423>Are they good for pve and pvpAny build that doesn't violate groundrules (>70% eq. load, going past scaling caps etc) is viable. Go nuts on greatswords and halberds. Black knight glaive has been a favorite of mine since the start. Hollowslayer/wolf knight/black knight gs/claymore are all decent. Some general toptiers are gotthard/weeb twinswords, or the washing pole.
>>240634626I still get to invade a lot of new players on the ps4 version. Or rather they are invading me because of gravelording
>>240635973What about Profaned or Exile GS?
>>240635260Way of White "makes it eaiser to co-op with other way of white/princess guard". It has something to do with connection slots ect ect. Princess Guard is also for using certain healing miracles
>>240635423Quality build is the best build. You are able to use most of the weapons in the game.
>>240636098Exiled is another toptier. Profaned, like many UGS, requires its own mentality. It has that sweet twohanded R2 thrust though. Black knight weapons are great too btw.
>>240632098I think the weak/strong attack system is easier with the shoulder buttons compared to a mouse. Considering how much you will be attacking things, you might want to consider forcing yourself to use the controller. Takes some time ti get used to. I do think aiming bows is easier with a mouse, but I've never played FPS on console, my only real recent experience using a controller is in this series.
I love DS3 but man are the zones complete ass.
>>240632098unless you literally need to play right now, someone posted a question regarding the mouse fixes on the nexus pages for both the mod and the fix, it's not too unlikely to think that in a couple of days (maybe less) it will work on this exe too.That said, I guess using a gamepad can be a new experience on its own, not necessarily a bad thing.First time I hear anyone comparing using kb+m to being a cripple honestly, and you already got pretty reasonable answers about it.The worst you'll hear is usually a you >MUST< use gamepad or the game is automatically shit.
>Playing Daughters of Ash>wearing 50% gain but loss on death ring>beat pinwheel>light my post boss bonfire>fucking explodes one shotting me with 50k souls>fuck it at least I have my stockpile of hard souls in my inventory>would you like to steal nito's death soul?Holy fuck tomb of the giants is one big middle finger to first time players.
>>240633780dark souls 2 is arguably the one souls game where you can't really make a bad build and there's always plenty of options. If you want to be really flexible or just have some real fun, consider the disc chime (if going mostly faith) or sanctum shield (allows you to use all manner of spells, can be buffed, allows you to block while attacking). Both of them also deal very respectable damage and will bait people into trying to parry you which always cracks me up.
>>240639593What are you talking about? No matter what kind of swamp/church you like DS3 has you covered.

>>240642785>>240642889DS3 pvp is both the best and the worst. It depends on the area and the host.
>>240643035It's by far the worst.
>>240643363DS1 pvp was the worst
Is there any fashionable set for casters in das2?I fucking like Faraam armor set, but I don't like the sword play for main part.
>>240644125Nah. Even with all it's flaws it's still miles ahead of DS3 pvp
>>240642889>>240643363DS3 has the best pvp, for one it actually lets people invade each other instead of autistically limiting the invasion items like DS2 or making sure belonging to any other covenant except the designated red invader covenant makes invading a huge hassle.
>>240644141Bitch don't tell me you haven't been mixing and matching armor sets.
>>240644202ds1 literally boils down to how much better you are at backstabbing / abusing latency than your opponent. there's more depth in ds3
>>240644280So does one. DS3 has the retarded weapon level system, awful matchmaking, AND the pvp itself is garbage.
>>240644202>poise backstabs>chain backstabs>Dark Bead>Pursuers>TWoP>DWGR>CMW/DMBDS1 PvP was broken, even after DWGR, TWoP, and the fog ring was fixed.

>>240644378>So does oneNah, getting AND USING the Red Eye Orb is locked to Darkwraiths which makes it an awful hassle.

And not DS1 has weapon level system as well.
>>240644506Most do have counterplay (DWGR, weapon buffs, and chain backstabs don't) but that doesn't account for latency.A laggy host can mean being one shot by Dark Bead or Pursuers. Hell, if you pre-cast Pursuers before the invader loads in, the invader can't see the Pursuers at all.
Only the remastered ds1 has a weapon level system hamfisted in, it wasn't in the original release.
>>240644141Pic related for cleric or sorcerer. Grave Warden/Black Hollow Mage chest + hexer hood for a dark mage. Also, the Black Set or Chaos Set.
>>240644563>Nah, getting AND USING the Red Eye Orb is locked to Darkwraiths which makes it an awful hassle. That's hardly a hassle.>DS1 backstabsI'd take those over DS3 rolls any day of the week.>I personally don't see it that way at all but we're drifting off into opinionland.Not really.

But pre-cast Pursuers are retarded, I'll give you that.
grug or caster build for das2 chilly and comfy pve-pvp??
>>240644141Get the Desert Sorceress set or the Black Witch Set
>>240645053Both are easy mode. I prefer caster because of the pilgrims of dark quest.

>>240645338You have soul greatsword. You can also infuse a straight sword or buy the chaos rapier and that is enough to beat most people. Dark weapon and crystal weapon are OP as fuck in DS2.

>>240654281you can parry them, I suggest learning how to , it makes them a little bit easier, especially with how aggro these guys are. Also backstabbing them is good too, but it can be a bit tricky if you're not fast about it. I usually swap to a dagger to try and backstab them once using quick step to get around them, and then swap back to main weapon to finish them off as they get up.
What's the most active SM for ds2 invasions?
>>240657883No, it's not. Bosses you use Bandit Dagger for Bleed or Mytha's Bent Blade for Poison where applicable and for general PvE it's a ton of fun.It also stunlocks people in PVP pretty well and gets fat backstabs/ripostes so it's not anemic that regard either.
I just beat Demon's Souls, damn that was one hell of a rideI might play it again to get the other ending, and maybe try to fight Doran beyond dropping his health a little bit, as well as killing the dragons maybeOld Allant went first try, I guess at the time of release he must've been really hard but when you have further souls experience he's nothing specialI feel like I've missed a ton of content but I didn't find that many NPCs (I had to go back for Ostrava, I found Biorr after 1-3, I couldn't free Rydell and don't know where Scirvir might have been, or if Blige did more than just being a merchant), but at the same time it feels hard getting world/character tendency offline
what's the best DLC to start with in ds2
>>240658286>shit damage>shit rangeYeah it's shit sorry

>>240635953>no point in mixingmixing is the point of armor unless you have 0 creativity
Where did the "DS2 has no poise" meme come from?
>>240659997Said nobody, ever.
>>240659997DaS2 has the most prolific history of balance adjustments. Poise was not good enough, then it was too good and finally it got balanced.
>>240659376Does it really change things around a lot? I felt like trying out a new build instead, maybe a dual wielding build with falchion+scimmy or a kilij
>>240657974Their moveset is so fucky, it's hard to tell when to parry.Also why don't we get those cool looking moves on that weapon goddamnit.
does the preacher arm WA scale with str?
Some of you are alright. Don't go to Anor Londo Rafters on PS4 right now.
Fucking ocd. After playing as Grug I wanna play as caster and vice versa.
>>240660373It's the exact same, but the enemies are scaled higher than the other souls games' NG+.
>>240660429>>240660429They have a few attacks that are very easy to parry - main the ones that don't involve them swaying around like a drunk person. They are pretty easy to bait into doing these attacks though, pretty much just back away from them, and they will either do a running or lunging attack (the easy to parry attacks) or they'll do the flame breath, which is very to easy to roll away from. >Also why don't we get those cool looking moves on that weapon goddamnit.I know, I'm forever said we don't have some of the same moves that the enemies use. that flame breath as a weapon art would be cool as hell.

Question for you lads. Dark Souls was basically the last video game I enjoyed and purchased. I borrowed DS2 from a friend a hated it and basically gave away my Ps4. I again borrowed a friends console to play bloodbourne, but after one playthrough I was happy enough and let it go. I went back to DSI for a week or so, but it looked like the pvp was dead. I've got a family now and have stopped playing video games all together, but recently I've got the itch to play DS1 again. It was one of my favorites and the last game I really played.I heard the PVP is somewhat alive again and that DSIII is also very good. Is there a living community for DSI and DSIII? Should I get a ps4 or just use my PC to get back into it? It's the only game I'm considering and I really miss it.Thanks to anyone considering responding.
>>240660698>not playing as Grug, the crystal club barbarian. lmao @ ur lyfe.
>>240661125DS1 is dead.The only games with alive online is DS2 and DS3
>>240661125You wont like das3
>>240660662That doesn't really answer my question tho
>>240661437Damn... I was hoping to hear that the remastered Das1 revived pvp.>>240661461Is 3 drastically different from the first?
>>240661534150k or 500k
>>240661534All those SM tiers are active but I think 100-200K (people starting new characters) and 900k-1M (people going to drangleic castle) are the most active.
>>240661741>>240661765Alright, thanks I'll give 150k a shot
Remember that you should make multiple characters at multiple ranges so that when one dries up, you can hop over to the next and when the other one dries up you can go back to the first which will be fresh again.
>>240661715>is 3 drastically different from the firstA lot more fast-paced and aggressive, poise works differently in that it only works when you're swinging particularly large weapons or doing certain actions, otherwise you will be staggered by even a dagger even in full Havel's. Rolling is a lot more favored though you can still use a good enough shield for most parts of the game. And the game is quite a bit more linear with branching paths being rather scarce.I prefer it to DS1 because I felt it was too clunky and suffocating for me and 3 gave me a lot more freedom to choose playstyle and armor style, but if what you liked of 1 was how slow-paced and "heavy" it felt you might not like 3. Try watching some videos or something to see how it plays.
>>240662242I don't really understand your point about playstyle and armor style in 3, if anything it seems more mechanically restrictive in both respects
>>240662242Hmm.. interesting. I'll have to check it out. And I'm assuming most of the Das1 playerbase has gone to 3?
>>240598296You don't need to feel that way. Just use a strike weapon and don't stand close enough to get shield-slammed. Or just parry them if you don't suck
>>2406626573 is the most active, so most people who enjoy the series, even if they don't like 3 the best, will be playing 3 usually. I've heard that DS:R is kind of dead, but can't confirm for myself.
>>240662578When I say armor style I meant in a fashion sense. I never really cared for DS1 poise. In 1 if you start with the knight you're gonna fatroll so the armor you start with is useless. In 3 if you start with the knight you'll have just enough equip load to fastroll so you can actually wear it. Not sure what you mean about playstyle, what did I say that made it sound like 3 would be more restrictive in regards to how you fight? The poise thing?
>>240662880Poise and equipped armor seems to me like an additional layer to differentiate between builds and playstyles because otherwise the build variety is almost identical (as there are only so many stat combos available, besides luck)
>>240662880Fatroll wasn't a bad thing in DS1, retard.
>Doing Dragonslayer Greatbow invasions at Anor Londo Rafters>End up in a standoff with a guy for awhile>He summons a phantom>Standoff continues against the phantom for awhile.>Phantom finally nuts up and comes after me>I kill him>Wave at the host who's still hiding in a corner super far away watching>He headshots me>I stagger back and fall offWell played you fucking cowardly fuck.
>>240663147DS3 fags only care about "fashion" because armors are irrelevant for 95% of the builds

Guys What should my int/fth be if I want to be a good pyromancer in DaS3? I heard 40/40 is too high Also how much attunement? 24?
Hey guys remember Izalith and the Chaos Servants?>no gold hemmed setHey guys remember Velka and the Painted World?>no rapier or black cleric setIf you're not going to fully embrace shameless fanservice why even bother
>>240663187dude I love it when hosts think outside the box to fight me when I invade, I remember one host outplayed the fuck out of me on the two angel map in TRC. I was sitting where the 2nd angel is blocking the way to the boss, and he sniped me off the branch, it didn't kill me, but it got me out of the way and they made it to the boss before I could catch them.
>>240664117Depends on the level that you're going to stop at. 40/40 or 45/45 is the maximum softcap, but requires cancer meta level. The thing that really matters for doing damage is wearing the rings, if you're going to be lower than meta level then 25/25 or 30/30 is fine.Attunement should be 24 for meta level or dedicated caster. If you're not going to use Vestiges or GCFO, or are going for a spellsword build, then 18 is fine since most of the other Pyromancies don't cost all that much FP.
>>24066411724 att technically wastes ~20 FP per +10 sippy because it refills more than your maximum
>>240595506It's a shame that it's one of the 3 actually useful hexes in DS2 together with dark weapon and dark fog.
>>240664703The only reason to ever go to 30 Attunement is for cancer meta casters. 24 is more than enough for the vast majority of builds.
>>240664927Dark hail is really damn good on bosses and the resonator soul spells are good in NG+
>>240664535>>240664703I'm trying to be lower level (sub 90) pure casterSo I guess 30/30 and 24 att is enoughMy vigor is already at 30 and I have FaP+3 from The Ringed City
>>240665158I remember hail barely doing more damage than a single orb despite being conditional, and GRS is like 30% stronger than an Orb despite consuming souls.In endgame hexer gets more mileage of dabbling into pyromancies
>>240665392Those stats look more or less on point, though my suggestion would be more Vigor. As long as you're wearing Witch's and Great Swamp you should do decent damage, and if you feel like meming then Domino Mask with Dark Pyromancies.
>>240665487Dark hail does around 1000-1100 damage if all orbs hit the enemy. GRS is way faster than the dark orb.
>>240666191>GRS is way faster than the dark orb.Not really.
I can't decide on a strength weapon, help me
>>240664993?you can easily hit 30 at 90 or even 80 in an actual dedicated caster
does it seem backwards to anyone else that it is easier to parry with a small shield vs a medium shield? you would think the larger surface area of the medium shield would make it easier. although if you watch the animations closely you can see the medium shield kind of pushes it to the side whereas the small reaches out to bump it away.
>>240667802small shield curvature by design is to do that vs medium or large shields that ostensibly take hits instead, or push more forcibly with edges etca lot of it is gameplay abstraction though
>>240665778I was thinking of Parting Flame + Black Flame + the mask as my gimmick

Feel free to eat me alive boys, but I'm just going to leave this commentary on the DSII ending here.The way I see it, the last embers of life represent the hope of walking into a perfect final death. I'm sure most will disagree, but I think "Ashen One, hearest thou my voice, still?" is the true ending. I read it differently from most people and I have to make a few leaps of faith, but it's the only ending that makes sense with my theological background as an Eastern Catholic. The "hearest my voice" ending ushers the world into a new age of darkness which the world has yet to experience. It's entirely possible that the darkness is the end of everything, and that an age of fire will not follow. We are told that the firekeeper can see a future of embers and another age of fire, but is it true? I don't think so. The way I see it, this ending is a full-stop ending. The darkness which takes over the world is complete death and a finality to all things. As the firekeeper realizes that death is grabbing hold, she asks if the Ashen One can hear her words with--of course--no response. The dancing embers that the fire-keeper visualizes is hope of eternal life but she is unable to recognize that with her fallible intellect. The last embers of life are hope of walking into death, not a continuing tortuous cycle... cont.
>>240671881>his fight fucking sucked and yet he's still this basedholy shit how can the ivory king keep being this based?
is sl1 fun in ds2? what weapons are viable?
>>240672098The souls series is a game about "being" and the torture of being unable to die in any real sense. The cyclical nature of the story even shows how horrible it is for humanity and civilization to continue on and on, forever and ever, and how all of "being" degrades as it cleaves to existence. Eventually all things will die... mankind, civilizations, and idols/leviathan's (which are referred to as"Gods" in the Soul's series). But even the DaS "God's" are nothing more than leviathans, created by the one and only true God. In DaS III we finally see an ending where darkness is allowed to engulf the universe and the finality of life is accepted. The Ashen One clings to faith rather than existence. The last embers of "Being" are hope for something more, with a final anxious question before departing of, "hearest thou my voice still?" The first time seeing it, I thought of a father dying in a bed with family members surrounding him. The dying father said his final words to those around him, and before he realized what had happened, no one could hear him--he had died mid-sentence and entered into eternity with God. Only after hearing the silence of his family surrounding him, does he understand that he has made the terrifying traverse into death and resurrection with God. I'm definitely pushing it, but this is how I reconcile DaS with my Catholicism and our Christian hope for eternal rest with the One True Lord. Obvousily, the game was made by
>stumble on one face shape that doesn't look hideous in character creator>every character I make now looks like that with minor variations in featuresWhy are sliders so hard, guys
>>240672098>>240672228>>240672297I meant DSIII :)
>>240672098>>240672228Well, I mean, if that's what you need to believe to reconcile it with your beliefs, then that's fine, but the very fact that the usurpation ending exists, and that the world very clearly does not end when the fire is taken from its resting place and used for the Lord of Hollows' personal power, and the world doesn't end, suggests the setting is indeed cyclical.
>>240672195pretty fun thanks to all the stat boosting gear

>>240673875I'm SL65 and on my first playthrough
>>240673759>>240673875The only time I ever got a hacker was in the meme arena at meme SL (Pontiff's at 120 SL). Big head flying motherfucker that repeatedly forced me and other invaders to play the "getting slammed into the air" animation while breaking all our equipment.
>>24067098190+10 gets me a lot of invasions as a purple at TRC.
I literally cannot get past the first area of Anor Londo/Pontiff because of the same hacker invading and cursing me across the map
>>240674209...Don't use an ember every time you try?
>>240673759>invaded by 3So, either you're blatantly lying, or you're Dried Fingered in Crux Woods or Pontiff's. And if you're encountering hackers, you're probably meta level. In which case, you are getting exactly what you deserve.

What are the requirements to steal the Death Soul in DoA? I'm right in front of the skelly fucker and have no prompt. I don't have warp yet, so I'd really rather not leave empty handed
>>240675637There's a miracle I think, Seek Guidance, that lets you see more signs and shit even unembered. Pretty sure it doesn't have a high faith requirement. Try using it if you're not a caster or use it and then go to the bonfire and attune something else instead. Never tried it but it might work.

What game in the series has the most faggy magic usersid say bloodborne followed up closely by DaS1.
>>240682685Bloodborne magic users are only faggy because hentai tentacles are inherently faggy
Stop responding to obvious bait, I know /dsg/ has been susceptible in the past but we should know better now.

How do I block any cheaters? Does a to for DaS3 similar to DSFix or whatever that anti cheat thing was? Tired of INVISIBLE faggots and invincible phantoms
>>240683085block them on steam, open overlay and click "view players"
>>240683196How do I get to the steam overlay? I've haven't launched steam in over a year and can't find the exe
>>240682685What do you mean by "faggy"?

>>240683419How do I figure out who is who?There's no show online Id option for Multiplayer like on the PS4 and Xbox One which is retarded
>>240682356But I do know how to dupe, faggot.

I heard there's some sort of extra boss thing for Gaping Dragon if you go there after getting the doll from Lower Burg, can you still do this if you kill it beforehand, or do you have to put off the fight until you have the doll?
>>240683872...You can fight it before that? The room was empty for me before I got the doll and I'm heading there now.
>>240683872Rancid Vagina Dragon doesn't spawn until you have the doll I think.
>>240683872>>240683926>>240683968Wtf are you talking about, I smell bullshit

>>240683926>>240683968Oh, I had thought you could fight it before, so I didn't try yet. I did notice the channeler is in there, though.
>>240684048We're talking about DoA by the way.
>>240683872>>240684474Ah it would be nice if this faggot specified that
>>240684616lmao who tf plays DS1 normally?
who the fuck thought embering post invasion automatically was a good ideaSTOP INVADING ME AND LET ME INVADE

>>240685090This is kinda desperate but try Iron Flesh before they spot you and then pretend you're edgewalking at them instead of lumbering towards them like a walking anvil. Might have to finish it in the first strike or they'll catch on.
>>240685425I can't get to Aldrich in the first place because it's either invade or get invaded by fucking hackers
>>240685090Outspace them with a straight sword.
>>240684850I no rite! Such a shitty game!
>>240685545Why don't you try not invading, turning off your Ember and then running straight to Aldrich and killing him?
>>240684850People that don't enjoy the butthole ass cancer that is Daughters of Ass. Your "mod" is shit and so are you.
>>240685669I don't have any I can wield I think
>>240684474i have only one question, where is logans comfy hat in DoA
>>240685737are you being stupid on purposeit's an old game and DoA is a breath of fresh air, it isn't exactly souls science you know
Why must black flame have such a small hitbox
Why isn't DS2 considered the hardest? I've played the base game of all of them aside from Bloodborne and DS2 and the ruin sentinels are already harder than any boss I've fought. Granted it's because the game is terrible, but it's still harder
>Playing through Daughters of Ash>Get to lower undead burg to loot the place>Suddenly boss music>Capra Demon is just in lower undead proper >Easy enough to fight him alone, especially with a +10 weapon>A few hits to killing him>Suddenly his just disappears >Thinking of quitting out to try again or seeing if I can inspect the area in the mean time>Suddenly a different boss track>He reappears>His attacks have fire now>His heavy slam does an explosion similar to Stray Demon's except smallerWell then.
>>240686196DS2 lets you cheese bosses with builds. Any kind of elemental infusion + weapon buff usually wrecks bosses and levelling adp first makes the early game considerably easier.
>Gael's GS user literally 2 shot meWtf
>>240681380>gets killed by the second easiest mob type in the game>calls others bad
Can somebody help me please tranfering some items on other character on PC?I can drop you some stuff in return too
Okay tell me. Am I too low level to be invading at Lothric Castle?>30 vigor>18 att>10 end>8 vit>15 str>16 dex>25/25 int and fth>7 luckI have demon scar +3 and parting flame +6
>>240686687Dude nobody plays other games here than DS3. Your meme is bad and you shall feel bad.
>>240686486I don't see your point? I only have access to two gold pine resins, and the problem is the second part, where you have to jump down and lose half your health, leaving you open to being one shot. Also the fact that there's almost a full second delay between when you press a button and your character actually does anything
>>240686567ds3?I'll mule for you if you mule (or gift) some manikin claws for me
>>24068679>8 posts above you is someone talking about playing DS1ok retard
Still looking for help with 4 kings ng+ ps4 if anyone's interested
>>2406868281. you dont have to jump down, they can jump up2. lol nigga it works on my machine, maybe upgrade from windows vista
>>240686882Sure, let's meet at highwall then with the usual dsg password.Need something else?
>>240685967Literally 10/10 Str/Dex. It is almost impossible not to meet those requirements.
>>240687117What infusion then? Dark or deepI have 25/25 int and fth as of now
>>240687068i'm playing on shitbox 360
>>240687086nah, that's it. just to make sure are you transferring anything higher than +5 or do i need to change characters?purple sign down
>>240687291Dark for 25/25 fai/int. You can also use chaos if you need a fire weapon.
>>240687086>>240687409is it matchmaking on or off? haven't done the password shit in ages
>>240687529Would it seriously be better than my demon scar for pvp?
>>240687409Nah it's all +0, on my way
>>240687291Against big dick Str builds wielding the greatswords and UGSes you're having trouble with, Dark infusion. Deep and Fire don't scale with anything, Dark and Chaos do.
>>240687584Demon's Scar is also very good for PvP, and curved sword running attacks eat UGSes for breakfast. But as above, not so good against Str builds with loads of flat Fire defense, Dark is better against those.
>>240687584depends on SL, the opponent's armor, and how good you are with a straight sword. Demon scar is good because it can combo R1 > Blackflame, but that's something you can't always do as an invader because of phantoms and such. If you haven't already, I suggest taking a look at Revan's video on fighting against poise weapons - it really opened up my eyes to how easy they are to deal with ESPECIALLY as a pyromancer.
>>240686196Just normal DS2 isn't too hard. SotFS is a little more difficult, but still not as difficult as DS1 or DS2.DS2 while in Company of Champions, on the other hand, is DeS NG+ tier hard.
>levelling sorc character, SL 32, +3 upgrades>sitting around the bonfire before Abyss Watchers, have a sign down at the gate>sign disappears, invaded>invader shows up>untrue dark ring>chain set>Onyx Blade>is complete shit at it, predictable as hell, fails to dodge even a Great Heavy Soul Arrow>hit them some more, they panicroll, chug>just stand there and let them>murder them shortly after>only took like one hit the whole fightThere's no way they earned that Onyx Blade themselves, right?
>>240687913Who the hell is Revan? And yeah the main problem besides not be able to counter the poise is phantoms. I can't cast if I'm being stunned by 2 other niggers. Also NO other dark spirits ever invade. Either that or they kill me purposefully. I'm SL65 and I posted my stats already. Honestly want to level up but I keep losing Souls and don't know when to stop and what to level. I want my pyromancy to not hit like a wet noodle even with the 2 rings>>240687745Guess every GS user I see is a str build then because the most I've ever done damage wise was 79 on an R1
>>240687587written down, let me know if i forget anything.also, i was gonna mule the manikin claws from this char, so i'll have to swap over later, sorrysign in same spot
>Carthus Sandworm ends up with Vendrick's shield.What does it mean? He also drops Lightning Stake and bone dust.
>>240686196ruin sentinels are easy shit but I can say that ds2 is 1000x harder than ds1 at least, ds1 had a million ways to cheese everything and even without cheese there wasn't anything challenging
>>240688265You need another claws?
>>240688260>Who the hell is Revanhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1IY7nf3u9M
>>240679362Dude, just use it as a tool to combo into Black Flame. It's a shit weapon. Also, don't be a pyro for yout first time in PvP, be a big dick STR invader and learn the tricks of the trade. After that, try things like casters.
>>240688527swapping characters, brbsame deal
>>240688853I don't think I can reroll at this point. Plus pyromancer is bad for min max str no?
>>240688853Oh yeh it also isn't just my first time doing PvP but my first time playing any Dark Souls
>>240682990Majula or any time spent with Solaire
>>240688885Thank you anon for your help
>>240688527thanks man, gl, and fuck yuria with her shitty quest making me miss these
>>240688384It means Smoldering lake is an unfinished piece of shit
I hate hosts who have 2 phantoms + password summoned reds that gank other redsIs Pontiff really this cancer? What other place can I invade at SL65 that is active but with less cancer?Also how do I get more purging stones?
>>240678437>even a good hit with CBV does sub 300 damageYour build is shit. A good CBV pyro will have 700-800AR with those things by SL65. It should hit for over 500-600 damage even against downscaled phantoms.Scar's primary function is crowd control and combos, not direct damage. Use it for CBV and BF combos.
>>240689997SL60+6 25/25 and witches ring only gives me about 400 ish damage typically.
>>240689997Then tell me what my stats should beI'm pretty sure I have the right gear
>>240690138Show your build first
>>240690334It's up here>>240686761I switched to Pontiff because Lothric is pretty slow to invade + everyone I invade has big dick weapons and stats
>>240690450Your build looks exactly like what it should look like, stat-wise. Do you have the witch's ring? That adds a nice boost to your damage if you aren't hitting hard enough.
>>240690831Yes and great swamp
>>240690450You don't need parting flame if you already have the Scar. Either do a Scar build or a Parting Flame build.Parting Flame build is stronger, especially if you use War Banner in another hand for its retarded damage buff and the fact it's a long spear perfect for rushing shitters down.Generally unless you're in +10 weapon range 27VIG will suffice as even greathammers at this point can barely break 400 AR.
Any content mods like DoA coming out for ds2 or 3 that you anons have heard of?
THIS AUTOMATIC EMBER MECHANIC IS RETARDED>come back from invasion>Not just one, but TWO people invade instantly
>>240690128Your problem is that you're using the Demon Scar. If you want my opinion, yu should use the regular Pyro Flame due to it having the greatest scaling. If you want something for melee, a Chaos LKS should be fine. Don't forget Sage's for speed.
>>240691002>22 vigorAnon I have trouble staying alive with 30 vigor. Most weapons two shot me
>>240691064God I wish. Even something as simple as adding poise to Abyss Jobbers would be fucking excellent to shake things up.
>>240691272Don't mean to sound like a dick but, you really shouldn't be close enough to be hit if you seem to take that much damage. Instead, try yo use range to your advantage.
>>240691272It's 27.With 30 you will only gain 50-80 HP advantage in the range where nothing can really kill you in one combo.
>>240691227Yeah, I'm aware you can higher damage by swapping out scar. Parting flame + Banner is a sick ass combo, or even with a normal flame. I like scar personally, I was just saying that his damage numbers are probably not off from what they should be with his build.
>>240691390Even free aiming I can't hit shitCasting is too slow and most spells get dodged by peopleAmbush doesn't work because I can't one shot hosts to win
Is there seriously only one war banner per NG cycle? I sold mine to afford level ups. I still want to level up to something like 85 because 65 feels so gimped
>>240691502You should be wearing the Sage's ring if shit is too slow. If it still is, put Saints Bellvine in your off hand to boost casting speed. Also, consider using less damaging, but faster and FP cheaper spells to guide your opponent into harder hitting ones or vice versa.
>>240691737>selling weapons or armor
>>240691064I would love for DS2 to get the same level of modding as 1 is getting. If we eventually get the capability to edit entire levels including geometry, we could see DS2 eventually remade into what it should have been.
>>240691827I do have sage ring on. What cheaper spells are there? I only can attune 3 spells and CBV takes 2. Black flame takes up the other>>240691869I need the fucking money. I still do because I have 0 souls and 0 consumables. I used all the great souls already
I love the Emerald Herald.
>>240691869i sell extras of stuff i dont use..
>>240691978I think the biggest problem there is that there isn't much to do modding wise in DaS2.
ds3 regular small shield parrying startup is 5 frames, then the window is another 5, right? At 30 fps.
>>240691869What else are blues going to do with the 50 sets f Silver Knight Armour?
>>240691497If you really want a low-level parting flame invasion build you can always try to make a lower SL build since you're still going to outdamage virtually anyone you encounter while they are just going to chip away your HP bar.
>>240691869getting rid of duplicate rando drops is good if only for organization's sake
>>240692308I forgot about that, selling one of a kind stuff for 500-1000 souls is retarded though
>>240692173I think there's plenty of room for improvement.
>>240692550I don't like my item box to be cluttered either
>>240692157i only sell doubles of common items

>>240693987I think it looks nice
r8/roast/critique my first character (knight/DEX).My goal is to be able to use Force and Chameleon, possibly Hidden Body sometime down the road. I don't have a particular SL that I am going for, I heard some time ago in one of these threads that I should worry about that kind of thing on my first playthrough.So, once I get my INT up to 15 for Hidden Body, I was thinking of bringing ATN up to at least 18 (maybe) so I could use three spells. It would be nice to get a cast or two extra out of Heal Aid as well, right now I can only get 4 casts from it. At 18 ATN I could get 5 casts of Heal Aid.The reason I am trying for Force and Chameleon is that I saw a bunch of "trolling" videos where the invaders hide as objects in plain site and also blast hosts/phantoms off of cliffs. Probably won't work on every person, but I think it is funny.Right now I am only using the Silver Covetous Serpent Ring, I haven't found anything else yet. I'm almost through Undead Settlement, so I think I will come across at least one or two more rings that I will be able to use.

>>240696270So you say Raw is better than heavy? Okay, thanks
>>240696156it's just a saving on vit, which is why it doesn't really matter. right now you get a little more leeway for fashion so it's definitely not an outright loss.mainly though, just enjoy your first playthrough
