Prepare to die Edition or Remastered edition of DaS 1 for PC?
>Iron keep in SotFS Jesus christ I don't even mind the other parts of the game where they throw groups at you but here you're literally stuck in a 1x1 box waiting for 5 allone knights charge you one at a time so you don't get shot midcombo and juggled to death or swarmed
>>258887045Remastered for the possibility of co-op. There's no difference gameplay wise
>>258887342I'm gonna be pirating m8Don't wanna spend the $20
>>258885537how is the Lightning Drakeblood sword? I mostly use it on my Quality builds.
>>258887490Well then either PTDE for mods, or Remastered for a non-glitchy 60 fps.
How tall is he? He's shorter than almost every human character in his game. And compared to the Hunter, his proportions definitely make him seem like he's in the 5'7-5'9" range, which is usually the "heroic" height in Japanese games.
>>258888225hits pretty hard, typically 2-3 R2s does the trick in pvp. the key is casting sacred oath beforehand.
How should I be investing my stats if I wanna play Pyromancer in 1, but would still like to use Greatswords?
>>258890713wotthats like saying "how should i be investing my stats if i wanna play with a sword, but would still like to have health?"just level att occasionally
Imagine being such a huge faggot that you don't regularly drop spare items in Dark Souls to pass drift items and vagrants onto your fellow undead.
Demon Princes are supposed to be easy with Dorhy's Gnawing but I can't ever seem to kill them because I run out of FP and that's running 4 Ashen to 10 Estus
>>258892202Maybe you should summon me you scrub
>>2588903091 inch tall
>>258892485Unless you're on PS4 you won't be able to help
>>258893579what's your SL?
>>25889432983 I had no trouble with my quality build GSer but its a repeat of Friede where I struggle with a Faith build
>>258895291I can help, I've got an SL90 that's already defeated them.
>>258895353Alright, pw is dsg and I guess we'll start on Demon in Pain first
>>258895610sign's down when you're ready. Character name is Heir of Fire.
>>258892202If you're using Dorhys' Gnawing, you shouldn't be getting hit, so switch it up to something like 8 Ashen 7 Orange. Or alternatively, just kill the first phase melee and save your Gnawing for the second phase.
>>258892202What's your stats/gear?
>>258895816...and i died not even 5 seconds after getting into the first. so much egg on my face.
What's the name of the armor set used in this vid?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLA4q0vQga84 minute mark for full front view of set, there's a helmet that isn't at the start.
>>258895816Alright thanks, surprised I was able to dodge the laser beams so easily
>>258896803from dying in 5 seconds to getting the prince on our second try, feels great man.also, I've always found the Laser Beam prince easier than the Fireball prince.
>>258896760Heide armor set if I'm not mistaken
>>258896760its just the heide knight set
>>258896912Yeah, seems like you just run up beside or behind it and try and dodge the blast from the last beam
>>258887223I used to think the same way, but if you learn the aggro ranges of each knight you can stay fairly safe while not taking an hour to advance. It's not guaranteed and the design is still bad, but it's doable.
>>258898710this, I usually bait them out one by one and pancake them with the Large club 2HR2.also, don't drop the other side of the bridge, it'll save you a headache if you die.
So i wanna use the Corvian Great Scythe and i wanna do a dex thing but with bleed as well. Do i go sharp infusion and use carthus rougue or a different infusion? Also how should i lvl dex/luck?
>>258899021I was in the same boat, but I got so damn bored with the Corvian GS mostly the self bleed was alittle annoying, the sweetspot mechanic, and having a WA that needs a perfection condition to hit was what made me drop it
>>258899415Honestly I barely tried reapers in this game and I tought this one was nice. Don't really like the friede one with dual wielding.
>SM twinking my way through DS2>Keeping in 30k and doing fine other than shit rolls and a 90 block shield making it a heal race>All orange borders at Fofg, Heides and the bastille>Make it to where I have to level health to make the jump down the pit>Say fuck it and spend my souls to get myself to level 50>Now at 120k>All orange borders still at Fofg, Heides and the bastilleDo these take a while to update or is everyone playing just bad?
>>258901269yes and yes.your orange borders after a while should be lost bastille, no man's wharf and heide's tower with the occasional huntsman's copse/shaded woods
>>258901269people are just bad. and if you wanted to keep your low SM you should have used a soul vessel and spec into HP then spec back
Help, can't decide which build to go with. I kinda wanna try darkmoon blade plus I want the look as well, but I've read that just doing a dark infusion is better. Also, on the pyro variant, great swamp ring would probably be changed out for untrue dark.
>>258901412I wasn't really trying to twink as much as be efficient getting to where I want to be.
>>258901921at least say why, dumbbutt.130 allows me a few extra stats while invading 120
What SM range should I be in to get summoned by the Mirror K***ht?
>>258902970Any "build" 120 or higher is not a build at all.
>smelter hammer is by far the funnest great weapon to invade with>pretty much requires going to high SM to one hand while still having a build befitting a HA weaponFUCK>>2589031361-1.2M and keep in mind you wont be getting these mirror invasions often.what you should do is making a character who invades drangleic and invade there constantly, that when if the mirror knight hijacks your orb it'll be a nice surprise and if he doesnt you werent expecting him to in the first place
5 hours.FIVE. HOURS.
>>258903302good shit, anon
Looking to make a low or mid level build with onyx blade and two or all of blackflame, black serpent, and black fire orb. What range should I aim for? SL 40 +4? SL 60 +6? Which is more fun/active on PC?
>>258903296>1-1.2MIdk if the average player gets to Drangleic Castle that low. Could safely be a few tiers higher.
>>258903296That low? Alright, I trust you, anon. And yeah, I was planning on invading in the castle normally. Do you have to have beaten the Twin Dragonriders to get summoned?
>>258903747The reason it's 1 mill is because the shrine of winter will automatically open for you if you have 1 mill SM even if you don't have the four great souls yet.
>>258903747nope , but i personally find invading central drangleic to be a better experience than the first bonfire
>>25890360260/+6 gives you the most possible areas to invade, though for some of them (Lothric Castle, Archdragon Peak) you will likely be underleveled for compared to the host.
>>258903859Sure, but how many average people actually know that and how many that do know that would actually do it? I think I'll be closer 1.4M because I wasn't keeping track of my SM and was wearing dumb shit like the silver serpent ring. Guess I'll have to get used to playing with two ring slots.>>258904018Okay, that makes sense.
I wish that using the red eye orb as a darkmoon would net you concords.
So each great one in DS2 has the soul of a DS1 lord right? Freja makes sense because its a magic spider in a library and even has the spiderweb crystal reference. Rotten makes sense because he's basically the same thing as Nito except with fleshy bodies instead of skeletons. Sinner makes sense because she has the spider from the bed of chaos in her eye and pyromancers are part of her fight, plus she give a pyro boost glove. But how the fuck is the old iron king in any way similar to four different dudes who fell into the abyss? They both fell into some shit they liked? I guess?
>>258904501he's got gywn's soul
>>258904501The OIK is Gwynn
>>258904927>>258905096Oh? I still don't really see the parallel other than fire and being a king
>>258905228Play the DLC
I'll sit and enjoy the moment with an old friend for a while.
Enemy health and damage should scale with the number of phantoms the host has summoned.
>>258906090Souls was never really about parity
>>258906090It does, just not very much.
>>258906131fuck you faggot dont use words like that
Reminder that winning invasions doesn't mean you're better, it's mean you were more clever.
>>258906562It's the opposite. Just because you win a gank doesn't mean you're better than the invader.
>>258901412>people are just bad.Yes, yes they are. I find myself at 700k-800k SM when I enter drangleic and I'm not exactly rushing to get there.I also coop some bosses as a phantom on the way there too.
>>258903234that makes no sense.
gonna record myself invading and upload it to youtube with the title "Invading with [Weapon/Build] for 10 minutes"maybe ill get 7 views and ill cherish each one
>>258908215just post clips here(you)s are worth more than views
>kill twink host with regular playthrough wolf of farron>A connection error has occuredEvery. Damn. Time.
>>258907679I’m usually in that same bracket through Drangleic Castle and up until you get the giant memory soul farm. It’s hard to get over 1 million soul level early if you don’t die literally all the time.
>>258908589it's all fun and games until they stop winning
>>258909819Especially at real china hours
>>258908494>punishing estus with snap freezewhat a badass
>>258910128>rednigger breaks my guard*snap* yep, thats going right into my curse compliation
How do you guys do mist raven lightning reflect? I just get shocked but doesn't get damaged
>>258887223Get good at aggro management: you can rush from knight to knight pretty quickly on a melee build if you know what you're doing, and if you have ranged damage the whole section is a cakewalk.Protip: get rid of the archer cunt on the left side BEFORE going on the bridge, his great arrows can knock you into the lava if you're not careful.>>258898829>also, don't drop the other side of the bridgeDisagree with this one, having the bridge down allows a safer retreat if the right side is kicking your ass, and that can happen pretty easily with the amount of greatbows there.>>258901269Most people aren't autistic and don't use the agape ring.Keep in mind that all those three areas have mid and late game uses, for example you can farm blue orbs in Heide's.
>>258912980drop one end of the bridge, but not both, then you can't get rushed by the guys waiting by the pharros contraption if you die before defeating Smelty D.
reminder that you can skip a large portion of the first iron keep section with one jump
>>258913461But if you do that the guys waiting on the right side have an easier time killing you once you dropped, because you can't retreat along the bridge and have to take the detour through the furnace.I can see the advantage if you want to cheese them long range, but that's boring.
>>258913618boring, but safe.
>>258913582remidner that you can skip the entire ds2 and lose nothing of value
How do you fight the ashina spear that has a samurai with him?
>>258916687Gachiin sugar + pupeteer the samurai then fight the spear samurai
>>258916719Thanks, that worked.
Ive just got profaned greatsword and it absolutely destroys ringed city enemies at +1 base req stats sl24 with all points dumped in vig.Just farmed the full ringed kn***ht set with it. Just poke everyone until death. Even with 240 attack it make the game too easy.You can also launch your enemies into the air while applying fire effect, that make it have 320 ar.Why did I even bother with those crappy +2 dex weapons?
If time travel is possible in Dark Souls, why doesn't everyone just travel back to the early age of fire, before the undead curse started spreading?
>>258919136the eagles wouldn't take them there
I am playing SOTFS with a STR build and so far (undead crypt) I have been using a Varangian Sword +10 and I just found out how funny it is to use the Gyrm Greathammer (+8)What are other good STR weapons? The sword kinda grew on me but the moveset is not very good
What does twinkling mean?
>>258920151it twinkles, duh
>>258919615You mean the PURSUER BIRD OF FREEDOM
>>258920151>>258920235it's an excuse bad players use when they lose
>>258919987hard to list others when you posted the 2nd best
>>258921285Which one?I honestly picked the hammer at random from what I had and I really like the moveset. Clearly it's slow. The sword is faster yet the moves don't convince me too much
>>258921458Now that looks silly
So how do you hit the demon of hatred before he kill you?
>>258921693___________turn off the game, so to speak __git gud____
How good are quality builds in 1?
>>25892410327/40 or 28/40 builds are like the staple of SL125-135 pvpExtremely good and cover a lot of options, enable you to destroy the game in a multitude of ways since the moment you grab zwei. You can even add 5 more dex points and 12-14 attunement to give yourself pyromancies on full casting speed too.
>>258925204Thanks, this'll be really helpful
I'm (still) donating stacks of CREOs on DS2 Scholar on PC, just say which zone, soulmemory and your character name(IMPORTANT) (or just put Hanleth as the god on your name-engraved), i can catch anyone up to 20mil SM so you must summon me.>b-but anon if you summon an anon you'll get hacked and softbannedThe last thing i want is a lower playerbase so i want to reinvigorate invading at every SM not just the 1.8-2m meta, damn shame there isn't an infinite red eye orb.
Man, The Last Giant is such a shitty non boss that I'm not even sure that there is a boss until I see the red bar.
How much of a FUCKHEAD do you have to be to add this bloody overlay shit to boos cutscenes? Shit pisses me to no end, you are scratching what you can in a fucking year or whatnot and then some retard walks in and says "yo, let's make this shit, will be so fucking cool and shit". And then those dickheads don't even patch it out.

Are any of Artorias' weapons good? If so, in which games?
>>258937678His shield in DS1 is the best shield in the game.
>>258937678His sword is at its best in 3 and incorporates all moves from his 3 DS1 greatswords into one.Also one of the longest GS and does bonus damage to abyssals.
the fuck is he gargling about
>>258937678Wolf Knight Greatsword is the most practical, since it's a DS3 greatsword with decent range and it doesn't have stupid requirements to wield. Majestic Greatsword is the coolest. Someone post that webm of a guy using its powerstanced moves to dodge all sorts of attacks.
>>258937969>DUDE WHAT ARE THE LORE IMPLICATIONS OF THIS PILE OF RUBBLE>"shut up retard" t. Vilhelm
>>258937143Yes it is. That's the point.It's his autistic dream to do it and he doesn't care to put unreasonable amounts of workhours of his own and his fan's time into it.

Then I woke up.I don't know what this means

Are there any bosses that I'll actually inflict Bleed on with my Flamberge in 3?
Cool blog time.Okay, so I've beaten DS and DS2 after putting it on a shelf for god knows how long because I didn't want to play "that really difficult game", since it seemed like a choir.Now, having beaten the first game I thought "well that's not that difficult, just a bit tedious at worst", second game a bit more guilty of that tedium, but that's not the point.I thought, there is no way that I'm THAT good at videogames, I can't even beat infinite climax in Bayo.So I google what the fuck was supposed to be difficult/bad in the first game and there is a shit like Blighttown/Sen's Fortress, bosses like Bed of Chaos, Capra and O&S, and those archers in Anor Londo.I don't fucking get it, so I look up videos of people playing and it's literally YOLO jumping head first into the area holding sprint and then wondering where the fuck did their health go and how could they fell off that cliff. Anyway, it pissed me the fuck off that people are that dumb and bunch of casual faggots who can't comprehend that you can turn the fucking camera sideways in Sen's Fortress to avoid fucking swinging shit. How the fuck can you even die to that boulder, jesus fucking christ. blog over, thank you for you time
Alright, here's a question that ought to stimulate ya...How do you hope Elden Ring improves upon Bows/Crossbows/Offensive Consumables?In the Dark Souls series we've seen Bows start out in DS1 unable to move while an arrow is nocked, then being able to move while an arrow is nocked in DS2, then finally being able to do running and rolling attacks with specific bows in DS3.As for Crossbows, in DS1 we've seen the player unable to zoom in with them, unable to move while a bolt is ready and unable to hold the shot after readying, in DS2 the PC is able to move and hold bolts after readying, and in DS3 the PC is able to fire bolts without readying provided they've loaded a bolt in the chamber.I'm interested to see how FROMSoftware improves upon the ranged combat (not including Magic) for a fourth time (ignoring any advancements made from Demon's Souls into DS1).and ill be posting this question next thread and probably the thread after taht and maybe even the one after that. viable (cross)bow only invaders when?
>>258948235Bows turn everyone into a Dragon's Dogma Ranger, straight sword meta is fucked
I just finished DS2II:SOFTS. I'm the guy who was said this game is exhausting as fuck. After finally being done with killing Sinh with three of my greatswords breaking in the middle of combat, I can finally say I'm done with this game. I'm probably not gonna touch it for a long time. I don't hate it per say but I can see why people like it and dislike it. Personally, it's not my go to Dark Souls for now. I haven't played 3 and Bloodborne yet but my judgement remains moot.

>>258946462more like feeding some kids bits of chocolate and when they ask more you give them a huge pile of shit then enjoy as they try to rationalize it to everyone that it is indeed chocolate, and its too deep a flavor for casuals.seriously, everything is just random 2deep4u shit thrown in because it sounded cool at the time with no true connection to them by design. (time is convoluted, casual bonfire timetravel, dark soul/humanity/actual souls you collect discrepancy, just to name a few core issues that MUST be handwaved away before you can even begin your tehorycrating)
>>258957282The only issue here is a bonfire revival, everything else was explained in the first fucking game.
>>258957558Its explained as "time is convoluted". Thats not an explanation, its bullshit, and wont eve adrress time related concerns like how we can warp to artorias time and back willy-nilly (or pre and post filianore touching). why cant we travel back before we killed the boss, or back to when we started and just hand the lordvessel to our past self? Also, what makes the dark souls special: it can copy itself infinitly, or it can splinter infinetly, hence why every human have piece of it. except the pygmies have it and humans dont, then what makes humans special, isnt humanity teh/piece of the dark soul? Manus, a pigmy lord "made" the abyss when his humanity went apeshit. why did he have humanity, was he human? What are the things with the lord souls then, do they have humanity too, or their followers who have neither lord souls or humanity in them, but arent hollow husks from before the fire either. and why are humans of teh dark when the dark souls was found in the fire like the other lord souls? How teh fuck do you paint a painting form inside a painting (on fire)?and on and on and on, on any topic you think more than 5 seconds about.
>>258958454Get a bit of imagination, my sperg.
>>258956503There's warnings on the ground to turn back, and you didn't have to waste time on it.
>>258958454The reason we can travel back to Artorias's time but not to other times is because Manus opened up a portal and dragged us there. Presumably the reason we can travel via bonfire to and from those points in time is because whatever connection he opened is still active, and the devs don't want to force the players to complete the whole DLC to leave Oolacile. It's also worth pointing out the the player does not alter the past, the chosen undead was always the person that defeated Manus. So we can't time travel back to the start of the game and give ourselves the lordvessel because we lack the power to connect two points in time, and we can't alter the past.
>>258892202they are super easy with blood infused bandit knife or other bleed weapon. Just summon lapp and bleed them, easiest boss of the dlc.
>>258936876>>258938226Lobos is great. He is genuinely passionate about Souls to the point of doing his own autistic projects like that, stays true to his fans and himself, gives exposure to cool Souls mod projdcts and so on. He's a bit of a sellout / shill occasionally but that just comes with the territory. Also he found foot goddess Fieldy through WoW so that's also something. And his current girlfriend Bloodyfaster isn't half bad either... But Bloody is probably cheating on Lobos already with another streamer friend of hers and poor Lobos is being used for a meal ticket basically...I pray for him. Umbasa.

The Pygmy lords have the Blood of the Dark Soul because they are direct blood descendants of the furtive pygmy - the same way Gwyns children are all gods and seem to have some the power of his lord soul. Humans are of the dark because they were made in the abyss, the dark soul was found in the first flame because the first flame made disparity, it made both light and dark.I don't think the Pygmies and Humans we see in dark souls 3 are actually a different species. I think the royalty are just named pygmies in honour of their progenitor. similar to how Gywn and his knights are probably the same species but Gwyn is called a god because he has the power of the lord soul.
weapon match making should be removed in ds3. If shitters can steamroll through all levels and bosses with three end game gear, pass summoned buddies I should be able to invade them with +10 lothric greatsword buffed with lightning resin and one shot poke them. Leave weapon mm only for coop. In bloodborne you can one shoot people going through central yharnam with your +10 chikage with 31, 27, 27 gems and no one is complaining.
>>258963040Bloodborne pvp is also very dead, while DaS3 pvp is very much alive.
So the ringed city is Londor?
>>258963852The Ringed City is a bunch of cities if you hadn't noticed.
>>258963040>>258963242If we could only change gear at bonfires, weapon matchmaking could just be what highest reinforced weapon that you have equipped.Sure it might be inconvenient to offline players, but it would cement the idea of making hard choices on what you bring with you.I wonder how they'll fuck up Elden Ring if it has online (I fucking hope so).
>>258962964The only thing left to do to get platinum is to farm skills. The fuck it doesnt have a multiplayer. I remember the leaker saying that youd be able to assume control of mini bosses and fight sekiro. Imagine how cool that would be.
Does the first pursuer encounter give you extra souls on top of the boss fight or does it end up being the same regardless of how many times you fight him there?
>>258963952this is a great idea Miyazaki needs to get his shit together and fix the multiplayer in his gamestoo much catering to le honorable duel shitters and co op strugglers
Shitkiro: Not A Souls-Like
dorkpoop: not a bloodkiro-lite
>>258964494It doesn't matter where you kill it, the result is the same.
dorksouls 2: a side project game
nigsouls 3: no poise
>>258965338To clarify: the boss version that can ambush you in the middle of FoFG gives the same reward as when you fight it before Bastille. The ones that ambush you everywhere else give lesser rewards.
What's the most fashionable set in DS1 besides the Elite Knight? Starting a Pyromancer but my last character already had EK as his signature armor.
Can anyone help me at abyss watchers? PC and PW is sivert
>>258967675waiting at farron keep
>>258967675If you need help with Abyss Watchers, you're not going to have fun with the rest of the game.

I cannot do jump attacks or "kick" in sotfs PC.literally no problems in ds3, only on scholar. are the timings different?is it just me, my controller or the game?
Lightning Drakeblood GS on a Faith build, yes, no?
>>258970945Physical infusion with DMB
>>258971215>Blessed on anything but LKGS or an off-hand parrying toolHahahaha, no.
>>258971289blessed is strong on anything with innate lightning damage, sweetie
>>258971090With no physical stats that's going to be shit, also I don't like DMB>>258971215Why Blessed?
>>258968835Morningstar with the fattest armor you can get, i like Gyrm's
>>258971410>>258971215Blessed isnt even canon. Try again, retard
Looking at it through the soulsplanner AR calc, Blessed works out pretty good maybe even better than Lightning.
>>258971410>Blessed DSA with 40 Faith: 274 Physical/208 Lightning damage>Raw DSA at base requirements: 273 Physical/210 Lightning damage>Blessed Drakeblood with 40 Faith: 92 Magic and 167 Lightning damage, unable to be buffed>any physical infusion Drakeblood: 142/142 Magic and Lightning, can be buffed with Lightning Blade or DMBLiterally the only use for Blessed on those two weapons is for the HP regen and slightly above useless amounts of damage output compared to superior infusions. LKGS is the exception that proves the rule.
>>258915839teach me your ways
>>258973107Buffs are literally only used in the arena
Is it worth playing Demon's Souls offline? Just hacked my PS3 so I might pirate it, but am not going to bother risking connecting online.
>>258974118Not so. Gankers will often be dumb and thirsty enough to run face-first into your Lightning Blade buffed LKGS. I've had it happen in my case numerous times.
>>258974507What kind of rock have you been living under?
>>258974617Oh right, they shut down the online servers didn't they. Still worth playing?

>>258974753This didnt happen.
>>258974932its not that unbelievable theres no timer for LGK invasions so you can fuck someone up in the LGK fight, invade them while their hollow before they get back to the LGK fight, kill them again, and while their invasion timer is up fuck them up AGAIN in the LGK fight
>>258974932Yes it did.
Noob question but is the demon's souls privateserver pirate friendly? not really giving a shit about world tendencies
>>258975720>>258974932I just CREOed them again in King's Passage because I didn't think I would actually get invasions outside of the boss fight. I BCed out to see if I could catch them when they were fighting the LGK, but it looks like it's not happening.
>get some lightning build nerd for a spear>he sucks ass, wasn't aggressive unless he was spamming lightning arrow like a tool and died by walking into a charged r2 directed at the second painted guardian summoni hate getting shitty spears
It's so fun embracing the mentality of being a side mob in a boss fight and having people aggro so hard on to you only to get blindsided by the Boss' big dick combos.
What do you think of this Faith build?
>>258979737Needs more spells or you might as well just go for minimum faith for ToD and put the rest into real damage
>haven't touched my katana run character because friede is a bitch and i can only beat her with gnawing bleed cheese>decide to go kill guts dogs so i can do some fun invading at irithyll at least>immediately get invaded by aldy and red>aldy starts spam throwing talismans while all i'm doing is waving >refuses to wave back and keeps trying to get free hits in>k don't be polite you piece of shit>red comes down and they surround me but red backs off and lets me 1v1 aldy because aldy is an impolite cunt>aldy gets fucked, heals, panic throws a talisman and still dies>red dies too but red was nice>proper bowed them bothpeople would like you invaders more if you were polite you pieces of shit, fuck you aldy you curved gs cunt

>>258979737>Canvas at 50 Fai>that EndurancePffhahahaha
>>2589818903 slots is plenty, could just drop ToD for something actually useful not that there's a lot to choose from with Faith
>>258982510>have to be dueling to take 2 seconds to wavelook i'm fine with doing whatever you have to do to kill a host (hiding behind enemies, ganking), i just wish that my effort to be a nice host and wave would be reciprocated. it's not like i'm ganking you fucks with 3 password summoned phantoms come on
>>258983417Got to sacrifice something for it to be a build
>>258983731You also have exactly zero cast speed, and you're going over 40 Vigor with Prisoner's Chain. Good luck hitting anything with that Lightning Stake.
Soul GS with a Magic Weapon-buffed Blue Flame seems a little broken. Fun, but broken. I also melted a more tanky looking blue arbiter with 2 while this webm was processing.Invaded the same guy as in the webm while waiting for it and merced him with a GSA, so I guess his magic defense might also just be shit.
>>258983913Apparently a Blue Flame buffed with Crystal Magic Weapon is second only to Staff of Wisdom in spell damage. Buffing it with "only" Magic Weapon still gets you results.
>>258983670>being this assblasted about somebody not emoting at you in a video game
>>258983893Right I forgot about the Sage's Ring
>>258984086Interesting. Too bad it seems to take forever to cast anything. I can't really see people getting hit by anything other than a mix-up like Soul GS without some other distraction. Guess I'll try the Clear Bluestone Ring and cast more with it.
>>258983913What SM are you for knight invasions?
Thoughts on magic infusing Blue Flame? Is it still buffable with spells and resin? How about the Black Witch's Staff? I'm trying to use spells from all schools, but it doesn't look like any types lose too much damage and the scaling doesn't change, so is there any reason not to?>>258984560Just below 1.3M. I'm no expert but I'd think you'll do fine being anywhere from 1 to possibly up to 2M. It depends a lot on the time of day of course.
>>258984964Black witch staff actually loses way more than it says it does if you infuse it. Magic infusing your catalyst is always good so I assume it would be good for the blue flame too. Get two of them to powerstance, then buff both with CMW for stupid damage
>>258984964The black witch staff has the highest melee damage so you can use it to bonk people that get close which is pretty fun
>>258985359Of course it does. Why would From actually give the player data that they would actually want to have access to? Thanks for the heads-up. And I'm considering power-stancing Blue Flames, but right now when I duel-wield I usually use a rapier because I think it looks more aesthetic.>>258985472Yeah it's pretty funny hitting stuff with it. I've never tried it in pvp, but I'll try to start.
>>258984964yes you can buff most infused weapons
golems confirmed for based level design
first time ds3er here, making a clericfreed greirat and am going to take the elevator back down to do whatever it is in that areathis char is supposed to be a cleric? how long til i get a lightning spear? how long til a lightning gem? cant pick between an UGS or a hammer/axe
>>258985679It's good to infuse with dark either way because then you can use all dark spells on one catalyst, but for magic it's still worse than the options
>>258985996Oh, sweet summer child...
>>258985996Don't do it. It's actually a fucking challenge run to try and do faith. If you have to do spells then go int or pyro but faith doesn't even get lightning spears until the 3rd area and even then they do 150 damage max. The infusions are trash and you don't get them until 70% of the way through the game
>>258986182I think I'll hold off for now, but I am leaning towards dark.
>>258986357>>258986389i think i'll be fine.
>>258986836I'm not saying you CANT do it, just that literally any other way is more fun

Was this guy supposed to be fucking easy? I've tried to avoid Sekiro spoilers but I've seen /v/ threads posted with this guy as the OP pic so I assumed he was some kind of early game wall. I'm wondering if I fucked up by doing the Hirata area first because the butterfly lady gave me a shitton of trouble, and now I finally go back to Ashina Outskirts and beat this guy on the second try.

>>258991176He's one of the easiest bosses in SekiroHe's mostly famous for his over the top intro in the English dub
>>258990903r u dum?/?
>>258990903The crystals protect him dude. Not to mention that dragons themselves aren't weak to lightning lore wise, its only their scales which can be peeled apart by lightning.
>>258991312>He's mostly famous for his over the top intro in the English dubOh, that's why people post him with that line. I just assumed it was because he was really difficult.
>>258991312His intro is pretty over the top in rune speak as well.
>>258991176You didn't really ''fuck up'' but Lady Butterfly first means Gyoubu is easier due to the ATK power upgrade and others you pick up in there. Also if you got the grappling hook attack that's a direct counter to Gyoubu which messes him up. So do firecrackers. One of my friends was having a ton of difficulty with Gyoubu but he went to Hirata, got the prosthetic tools, came back after killing the Shinobi hunter monk, got the grapple attack skill and beat Gyoubu like second try after that. So whichever boss you beat first, Gyoubu or Butterfly, makes the other one easier.
>>258991418>he was really difficultHe can be a wall when you're new to Sekiro. People just have forgotten their first Sekiro playthroughs. He's one of those bosses that becomes a chump after the time you beat him and figure him out but he is a decent challenge to new Sekiro players.
I need some help for my sl24 frayed blade +1 Edgelord challenge run.What is the most edgiest weebiest gear combination?

Gonna kill dragonslayer armor and see how the pieces look as well.
>>258991251>tfw its not a real covenant
>>258993431Yeah, it kind of sucks that you don't even get a token of shit, but it's so fun that it's worth waiting half an hour between invasions. I don't think I'm gonna make it to the Shrine.

I just had the most fun time progressing through the Ringed City with a phantom. He was definitely an experienced player, since he guided me to every item and NPC spot.

>>259004936Thank you based anon. Did I get the toxic off? I don't think I've been able to do both to anyone yet
>>259006257nope, getting toxic without using the spell pretty much requires you to wail on the opponent since ratcrest and sanc gaunts dont increase toxic (only poison) build up
>>259006313Hmm do you recommend the scorpion stinger or manslayer? I'm planning on powerstancing spotted whips and then getting in their face with a dagger while they scramble, but if there's a better way to poison I might do that.
>>259006658manslayer is more funner
>>259006658Powerstanced poison claws is really fun, hit them with that spicy double CC effect and then just watch
>>259006658stinger comes out fast but its very easy to whiff your attacks. i only use it against ultras
>>259004936>invading in ShulvaYou poor, poor bastard.
>>259008278Shulva is really fun to invade in, the fortress gives a little Demon's souls feel to it, however NEVER invade where the 2nd bonfire in the tower is since hosts can camp due to (you) not being able to move the elevator upBut you can cheese some hits in with Wrathful Axe's special aoe from the room below
>>259008448You can't manupulate a single switch in the entire Shulva, the place is garbage for invading all around.Shit, DS2's mechanics for invading in general are fucking garbage given that you can't manipulate vast majority of switches and even open some doors.
>>259008639like with most things, thank god the players fixed the issuesi just use CE to get to places i'd be able to if it werent for shitty phantom mechanics, which includes flying up to the tower of prayer bonfire
>>259009134>i just use CE to get to places i'd be able toDS2 players
>>259009171-fuck mad bitches and get mad hoes.
>>259009171>implyingThe entire series is full of cheaters: unsurprising given the combination of difficulty, low droprates, PvP with griefing, and limited anti cheat measures.
>>259009261You don't need CE for basic quality of life on other dark souls games
>>259009134Why fly? Instead get a hotkey that changes your characters affiliation to be the same as the host, punch the button and switch back to red phantom to make it seem legit
>>259009305if only it were that easyit still doesnt let you manipulate switcheswhat the fuck did darkwraiths do in ds1 to warrant this
>>259009296>implying againPeople spawning in upgrade materials were the norm in DS1, especially as you could drop those materials.
>>259009296blame whatshisface, the first director of ds2 for fucking shit up so royally. that aint gonna stop me from playin his game tho
Playing DS3 for the first time in a long time, and I'm invading at level 20 on a brand new character. Virtually every single host I invade is using random endgame shit like a lightning avelyn or gael's greatsword. Did they finally give invaders infinite upwards invasion range, or is there some kind of bizarre "Return to Farron" community event I don't know about?
>>259011453They are obtained at endgame zones, so their damage and annoyingness factor relative to other weapons is naturally unbalanced, always been like this
>>259011842Sure, but I remember running into these people once every few invasions at most, not every single time. This game is seriously like this all the time?
>>259012085Outside of a couple of level ranges, for each normal player there's ten shitters cheating in endgame gear.That's what happens when you give players control over matchmaking, they will always game it for easy wins.
What happens when you ring the bell in Archdragon Peak?Why are there warnings near it?I pulled the lever recklessly because I was running from an NPC and thought it would rise a lift or something.
>>259012574I mean, am I going to miss stuff because of it?
>>259012652you freed navlaan and he's going to fuck andre in the assim sorry anon
>>259012574>>259012767he said archdragon peak not aldia's keep, ringing the bell there makes the zone edgy and unlocks the optional boss, beat him to make it sunny again.
>>259012574It just summons Nameless Kang so you fight him.
High level pvp in looks like cancer, should I just farm skeletons for shackles? I just want to get warmth on my SL 95 pyro for the completionist achievements.
>>259012928tfw also not on pcsufferingI'd just farm them
>>259012574It does absolutely nothing except make the boss available.Seriously, were there plans for a dragon covenant that got cut last minute or something? There's literally no reason to for that lever to even be there, surrounded by warnings. It feels a lot like it was meant to hype up a covenant, 'don't ring this if you want to join the dragons' or something. Instead we have the only game in the series not to have a dragon covenant, also in the only game in the series to have an area dedicated to duels and dragons, in the series where dragon covenants are thematically about duelling. Makes no sense.
>>259012928I'm not great at pvp and I use decidedly unmeta weapons but I got a decent number of shackles reasonably quickly at level 125 by invading the ringed city. Every last host there has three phantoms, which sounds like a nightmare but shit is so chaotic there it's often pretty simple to get just one kill. Almost certainly way faster than farming skeletons.
>>259013496Dueling is fucking gay and they added an Arena with AoA. But honestly Sunlight Warriors should be forced to invade in the area instead of co-op since Nameless is the deity of the Sunbros and it makes little sense that sunbros get rewarded for killing him.
>>259013496Covenants and PVP in general in DS3 are fucked. Every covenant besides Spears of the Church is basically a barebones excuse to enable what the devs knew the players would be doing anyways, i.e. ganksquads vs. twinks and tryhards. Even that wasn't enough though, so the arena got patched in later.
I have Black Knight Greatsword in my inventory even though I've never once beat the black knights that I've faced so far. The ones in undead burg and parish. Is it possible that the knight fell from the bridge after it killed me?
>>259016473Only the one after the taurus demon drops the greatsword and it gets added to your inventory automatically, and yes you can still get items this way after you die
>>259016565>>259016537Alright thanks. Yes the one in Undead Parish I lured below the bridge but then he killed me. I didn't see him fall though but it's the only chance when it could've happened.
>>259009360Upgrade materials are one thing. You could spend an hour getting everything you need in DS1, even the fucking red titanite slab could've farmed fairly fast. On my low level dragon invader i've farmed 30 scales in under 1.5 hours and it's by far one of the worst grinds in the game. Being forced to use CE to overcome the dumbfuckery of level design during invasions is ten times worse, as well as not even having full red eye orb or fearing to upgrade one extra weapon because it will fuck up your SM.
>>259016701That guy is weird, I kill every BK by parrying them, missed the parry on him, got stunlocked, got the fuck out of there with a fraction of hp and then he just died somehow. I still don't know what happened there.
>>259016723I love Shulva's bizarre oldschool platformy design, it's a lot of fun in singleplayer but that's definitely all they had in mind when they designed it. Sometimes it has to be one or the other I guess.
>>259017072If Shulva allowed you to switch pillars as an invader it would've been one of the best places to invade in whole seriesBut alas
>>259017161It doesn't let you???Fuck that I take that back, it absolutely didn't need to be one or the other in this case. How annoying.
>2019>not getting a buddy to invade with you and golfswing you up platforms
>>259016723>Being forced to use CE to overcome the dumbfuckery of level designYou aren't forced, you can easily decide to leave when the host is wasting your time.>as well as not even having full red eye orbIf you're so obsessed with low SM that you're not willing to buy them, you can farm them fairly easily.>or fearing to upgrade one extra weapon because it will fuck up your SM.This is a pathetic excuse for a twinking faggot that wants to invade at 30k.Normal players are around 0.7-1.5M by the first visit to Drangleic Castle, one more weapon to +10 is a rounding error compared to that.
>>259018180>You aren't forced, you can easily decide to leave when the host is wasting your time.You can easily decide to not waste your time on DS2 and it would be a way better decision.>If you're so obsessed with low SM that you're not willing to buy them, you can farm them fairly easily.It doesn't change that DS2 is the only souls game with such a horrid QoL that you don't have a full orb.>This is a pathetic excuse for a twinking faggot that wants to invade at 30k.All the best areas to invade in DS2 are in the extremely early game.Blame the game for having a shit progression, level design and invasion mechanics, not me.>one more weapon to +10 is a rounding error compared to thatAny good invader build in 1 and 3 has up to 15-20 weapons to swap around for fun.Do this shit in DS2, i dare you.
>>259018612Megamule that holds every weapon/bonfire and item on every character before character creation so you can choose appearance/class, https://pastebin.com/d4aPzV9zit's a clusterfuck to navigate, but that's what the creator wished for.
>>259018971Won't you get fucked by From's fun police?
>get invaded>it's a mage fuck>dodge everything>get hit two solid seconds anyway cuz ping >"you are dead" comes 15 seconds after I was dead>it was not set on "global"Neat, real fucking neat
>Fromsoft are a bunch of pnp nerds>managed to cram a lot of martial archetypes into souls games fairly faithfully for an arpg>but their mages are still primitive nukers with worse spell variety than a level 1 dnd wizardExplain this.
>>259019245>>259019361Imagine souls wizards having access to grease or any other low level dnd utility spell.Just imagine the sheer amount of pvp fuckery you could do with it.
>>258887223I had some troubles at the beginning too but eventually I managed to get through. Keep focused, it's not as bas as other areas in the gamefor sure someone gave the wrong suggestion to the team that fulfilling a small area with enemies = fun and challenging. The game suffers from this here and there
>>259019245that's because non-nuker spells tend to fucking suck.
>>259019626They actually tend to make everything around drop its spaghetti in the most hilarious way possible and open up quick or even environmental kills.
>>259018612>All the best areas to invade in DS2 are in the extremely early game.This tastes like twink salt to me.>>259019039Use a family share account, newfag.
Path to Smelter demon 2: now in blue will haunt me for the rest of my days. What the fuck were they thinking?
>>259022098I really love DS2 but that's one of the things absolutely no one in their right mind should ever try to defend
>>259022098Fuck off DS3fag, it was perfect
I can't stop using the sanctum mace. It's categorically awful in almost every way but somehow it's just so fun. You ever have a weapon that you just instantly connect with on such a level that you literally need to use it, no matter what?
Just started bloodborne and it's really fun :)
>>259023182sanctum mace is actually better than like 90% of shitty ds2 weapons and certainly the best heavy weaponbuff it with poison resin and wear the gauntlets that increase poison buildup + anti-poison ring
I just started DS2 and its not fun :(
>>259023256what's your starting weapon?
>>259023256It really fucking is, the bosses save for Gascoigne, Gherman and the DLC ones aren't all that good though. Also, fuck Laurence.>>259025340I was kinda fun for me for the first playthrough until NG+ I got sick of the shitty bosses , bad game mechanics and nonsensical world designs.
>>259026679>the bosses save for Gascoigne, Gherman and the DLC ones aren't all that good thoughnah, logarius, ebrietas, and vicar are all solid
thinking about doing halberd/spear build on softs. it's been though so i've forgotten a lot of shit. how do you make a qt waifu in das2?
>>259030312been a while*dyslexia
>>259030312You put a helmet on her head and imagine the perfect waifu.
>>259027105Logarius would have been better if he were more aggressive and those pillars weren't there. I've never had a good fight with Ebrietas since mostly it was just me spamming R1 while she screamed till she died. And I hate all the Cleric Beasts because of the shitty camera.
>>259030867i want to make her a fem conquistador. she has to wear the hollow infantry helm.
>>259031385Lucatiel's vest, ye ole halberd, espada ropera
>>259031296logarius is one of the most aggressive bosses, especially when he starts his 2nd phase
I wanna fucking DIE
>>259032237Yeah but if you backstab him while hes powering up it completely neuters his second phase.
>M-MOM PULL THE ETHERNET HE PARRIED ME, IT DOESN'T COUNT!
>>259019810I've never had that experience, but I do use hidden body+ sleepy ring to speed through areas.
Anyone wanna kill deacons with me? PC. PW sivert
Does comp bow actually serve any use in PvP? I can seen to only get chip or plink damage
>>259039403All bows are plink damage in pvp, the roll attack helped them be less shit but there's no way you're going to do big dick damage. The only time they're a viable option is dark souls 2
I HATE IT
>>259042475>file namewewi also hate it though, it's obligatory gear for all casters in ds1 and makes you look stupid, same for sorcerers in ds3
>>259042707Meanwhile, this grants zero bonuses whatsoever, despite being *the* witch hat

>>259026658I picked the saw at first but after playing a bit more I've moved to the axe as my main damage dealer and the cane whip for crowd control. I've only tried 4 weapons so far, so haven't settled on a favorite yet.
Dark souls 2 was the best game in the series.
>>259054261more like the only game in the serise
>>259054261>>259054385I respectfully disagree
Just beat dark lurker and I'm about to take on the throne. how hard is the gauntlet? I know the queen is pretty easy but what about W&D and Aldia?
>>259055572Aldia is sadly quite easy. Really if you beat Darklurker it's all downhill from there.
>>259056497does the kings blessing negate nashandras curse orbs?
Sekiro bros, is sword saint actually easier than asura ending isshin? Not only you face toned down genichiro you already know full moveset of, the big area also helps to punish isshin's moves, where asura version is constantly in lunge range
Is the lightsaber from Aava worth using? It takes 40 dex so the lack of scaling basically just means it went into the weapons base damage. Is it for infusing? The strike damage seems useful since dex doesn't get any on its own
>max out an ultra great sword>it does the same damage as a straight sword per hit
>>259058593no, also you cant infuse itits only good for jedi cosplays
>buff a weapon with a spell>damage increase is minimal>duration is the same as a resinwhy bother with buffing again?
>>259060624High level buffing is better by a lot but flame weapon and anything less than great magic weapon is trash
I fucking hate the fact Power Within was nerfed in 3. It's so good in 1.>going a quality mid roll build>PW + lingering dragoncrest gives me a huge-ass power boost for almost 3 minutes>with each ng i'm doing i get more PW charges>they barely cost HP thanks to lingering dragoncrest
>>259058791Maybe your stats just suck.>>259060624Invest in your casting stats and use a non-shit catalyst. Spell buffs are significantly more powerful than resins if you aren't just making a PvE build with like 15 Int and 15 Fai for small shit.
>Buff weapon>Have to spend the duration chasing people around because there's no bigger sign to waste time than someone buffing
>>259062725In duels, maybe.
>>259063125Buffing is an arena thing
What do we think about rapier hexers?
>>259064097depends. what do we think about trannys and homosexuals?
>>259064097crush em with the largest stick i can findhexes are just purple faggotry
>>258990502single player games are not worth $60
>>259065272That's a matter of perspective. You can just buy the game and play it shortly after release, or you can sit and whine about how you don't want to pay that much money, while everybody else enjoys it and you run the danger of getting all the shit spoiled for you in the meantime.
GREAT SOUL EMBRACEDPEW-TCHHH-WONG-ONGSHHHHH

How to make magic fun in Souls games? The system just seems so poorly designed.
>>259066957Two handing a catalyst and holding L2 puts you in a stance that turns your character and his aim to where the camera is.Essentially a third person aim mode, but without a reticule.Or go first person, I don't really care which.Also, let all casts be able to be held. It's one of the reasons lightning arrow is so strong.Finally, remove all spell/elemental enhancing rings and clothings. It's just easier to balance things out that way.Some of you might say that clutch rings are fine, but I would rather have rings that give interesting properties instead of just shuffling numbers around.
>>259057368They still do damage, but you don't get cursed iirc. So you're max hp doesn't decrease.
>>259066957more spells like snap freeze and twisted wall of lightmore cool interactions between spells like using twisted wall of light with great soul dregs or pursuersplaying an intelligence build should make you feel smart. standing out of aggro range and firing magic missile over and over again or casting hidden body and spook to break the AI doesn't nearly cut it.
>healing the LGK after bullying the host with powerstanced GMW-buffed Blue Flamessmug as fuck
>>259068805God, I wish that spell didn't get nerfed to fuck in DaS3. 25 Faith and two Attunement slots just to use a non-scaling spell.
why are so many of guys playing das2 now? did you finally realize it's the better game?
What do you guys think is the most fun playstyle for Demon's Souls and why?
Are Sekiro and the regular Souls game connected in any way?
>>259069890Sekiro is a sequel to the harem ending of DeS
Just killed midir with +2 raw millwood axe sl 24 character. took 13 minutes. Am I finally getting okay at video games?
>>259061669same, it's super powerful in ds1, and I love it.
making a new build dry fingered has been really educational about the state of the average invaderthese are the guys i need to do better for
Is the umbral dagger worth upgrading? I got three while trying to farm the fume sorcerer chest
i bought vanilla ds2 ages ago and feel like playing it now. should i just send it with this version or not waste time and buy/upgrade to scholar of the first sins? also is there any reason i'd want to get the xbox one version over pc
>>259072625It's actually pretty eye-opening, because most of us here are regular invaders we don't actually interact with our fellow invaders unless it's a Dry Finger world or a territory defender zone. And whenever that happens, it's not uncommon to complain about the quality of our co-invaders.I encountered this exact situation myself when I was running through NG+2 for the rings achievement on PS4 last year, at least 7 times out of 10 I was able to put my invader down one-on-one without dipping below my host advantage or chugging more than half my Estus supply (and in some cases even having to contend with PvE mobs at the same time, I rarely if ever just waited at the bonfire). So I actually have little sympathy for hosts who complain about invaders, the ones that they encounter are likely just as terrible as they are and thus aren't even that remotely challenging to dispatch without having to summon blues or rely on passworded buttbuddies.
>>259073054Scholar is objectively better thought out in terms of item/enemy placement and has all the DLCs included so if you're going to get the DLC you might as well get Sotfs instead. Xbone version is fucking dead go for PC
>>259073339looks like i'm upgrading, thanks for the actually useful response
1. was greatwood supposed to be hard? only died once and it was when i didnt know there was a boss in the room before getting trampled and one shot2. is that covenant guy dead?3. what do i do with the transposing kiln? andre and that handmaid aint doin shit with it4. where the fuck is the lightning gem at?5. when do i get any other miracle than heal aid?6. fuck thralls.7. really? i collect some ashes and all i added to the lady's shop some some resins?8. no online, any way to farm embers? ive been going unembered for everything except bosses (didnt ember for rotwood, forgot to)9. was rotwood an optional boss? did killing it kill hodrick?10. the hell is in that firelink tower thats worth 20k souls?
>>259069454there was a sale that ended, like, a week and a half ago>>259072625holy shit how embarrassing
>>259072670not really, its gimmick is increased backstab damage (not riposte tho) yet some other daggers out preform it
>>2590755031. No2. Yes3. Keep talking to NPCs at Firelink4. You can trade for one, or get one far later in the game, either way you can't do anything with it until you get the proper coal5. Find the Miracle trainer6. Use a medium shield7. That's how ashes work8. Just kill enemies and explore, you can get Embers as drops or as loot9. Yes and yes10.

Reminder that there is LITERALLY no reason to buy Sekiro.Just pirate it.
am I crazy for thinking the simpler graphics of the original dark souls has this hand painted aesthetic ds3 lacks? The newer games just look muddier to me, idk if its the more realistic lighting or what
>>259082497also having teleportation from the start completely ruins the whole "get lost in the world" thing the first dark souls had. Hopefully elden ring brings back the interconnected world
40/40 dex/int fag here who only swings magic swords/friede's around. Wanted to reallocate some points to attunement (14 prolly) and fuck with a bit of magic to use that int stat but I wasn't sure what to use desu.What spells are good to weave into a melee oriented sorcerer build (most of my weapons can't be buffed so unless you have suggestions there magic/crystal weapon are probably out), and should I be using the heretic's staff or the preacher's arm? (I really like the arm and it seems to scale similarly)
>>259082676it's never gonna happen, sorry to say
>>259082768could use Snap Freeze to punish Estus, and Great Farron Dart as your throwing knife finisher.
I just got the frayed blade and upgraded it to +1.Any tips on fighting Gael with sl24 frayed blade +1? I pretty much have no hp because all points went into dex, even with mercenarys starting 16 dex. I got pchain fap+3, milk and hunter ringsand the edgelord set of fallen knight head, chest along with ringed knight hands and legs which give 20 defense overall.How fucked am I? He is resistant to slash damage and dark according to wiki.
>>259083093just fight him over and over again, eventually you'll get good enough to beat him
>>259083093>Beat Midir at sl24 but worried about GaelI think you're overthinking this....just keep doing the fight until you're used to dodging him, the fight is just another delicate dodge roll dance like Maria and Friede are.
Poor little host not so tough without his summons.
>>259083348midir is braindead easy though. gael actually poses a challenge
>>259083575What did I do?
>>259083749Is that... THREE Mirror Squires?
>>259083836Really? Fuck me I feel the exact opposite every time I do the ringed city bosses....Gael always feels like a freebie after I kill Midir.I'm typically better at humanoid fights in these games than I am at the big/monstrosity shit though so, to each their own.
>>259084185next time you fight midir, try walking backwards. seriously, he can't handle ithttps://youtu.be/HSbXvn-qglA
>>259083984Yeah. The fight dragged on a lot because he had a couple sunbros and Ashen Tank Boyd, who took forever to kill.
>>259084185>I'm typically better at humanoid fights in these games than I am at the big/monstrosity shitSame. It helps that the humanoid bosses actually fight on your screen so you can always see what they are doing.
>>259084392you can very easily read all of midir's attacks as long as you're not gimp and stay in front of him
>>259084587Apparenlty you don't even need to read his attacks according to >>259084326
How much should I invest to ADP to have DS1 level i-frames?
>>259084905in fairness there are a few attacks where you need to walk to your left, too.
>>259085365>linking to fextrajesus christ anon
>>259083838Friede's is just a meme weapon, through and through. The L2-R1-combo is easily outspaced and is very punishable if the opponent happens to have a poise weapon (I have many fond memories of decimating Friede-users with my Propane Greatsword). The L2-R2 is like asking the opponent to run in and punish your frosty memery, or, alternatively, to take a sip of Estus.And most importantly: It has no poise, it has no grace, this weapon has a funny face.
>>259084908I think you need 99 agility to have 12 iframes, which is equivalent to a fast roll in ds1.
>>259085484First link. It's more than someone who can't google deserves.
>>259085543Man....I just like how it looks. Is it wrong to pick a meme weapon simply because you find it fashionable and pleasing to the eyes? I also carry around a GS of Judgment and HMLGS for when I know it won't work.Also....you are legit the first person I've seen talk about poise in one of these threads like it actually matters, not that I don't agree
>>259086103The FGS shines in ganks, when you have two or three other people with you. But if you're the guy on the other side of the gank, or you're just fighting one dude one-on-one, you'll wish you had anything else.Fashion is indeed the most important thing, but remember: using a meme weapon is a flat -10 to your fashion stat. You'll basically look like this guy.>the first person I've seen talk about poise in one of these threads like it actually mattersThen people are SCRUBSPoise is goddamned important, especially in DS3 invasions where even a lone host isn't a guaranteed 1v1.
Why is every blood stain in King's Pass the same guy? They aren't even memey like the ones on the way to Majula, just one guy dying a bunch.
>>259087915Dude look, I'm sorry for dying a whole bunch of times there but those statues are hard as fuck to deal with man. Don't make fun of my bloodstains.
>>259087915The game only has a few models to use for ghosts so if you're in heavy armor with a big weapon it comes out as knight set with a great club. There are a few others but I don't remember what they are
i'm so fucking hard right nowhow is it even legal to be this good at a game
>>259066957DaS2 did it right since they had 'get the fuck off me' spells like Scraps of Life. Casters need more defense spells or spells that build status not just various flavors of projectiles. It would also be neat if you could mix spell effects like poison cloud + fire = bigger explosion.
>witness host fall to his death from being baited into forceI'm tired of these niggerbrain hosts summoning me for stupid like this
>>259090183I will never get over the fact that such great art is ruined by the two player characters at the bottom.
>>259012574I think you lose out on the dragon stone you get by going up that path with all the man serpents
>>259092710 You do but only until the boss dies, the storm created by him obscures that area. Once he's dead the zone returns to normal... aside from the extra loot below him being available ofc.
here it is ladsthe final piece of the puzzleno one can stop me now

The moral of the story here is that Dark Souls 3's ''''''''''''''''''''''''PvP'''''''''''''''''''''''' is an abomination
>>259090879DS2 casting is a fucking abomination and defensive spells has existed since DeS.
>>259085543>very punishable if the opponent happens to have a poise weaponDon't need a poise weapon, just need spacing and timing. Each new spin has no HA at the beginning of the spin.

>>259111532hey, I just woke up
>>259111034>implying anything can possibly be easier than the build that best utilizes a straight swordStr builds are actually probably the most difficult way to play simply because of how easy it is for some shitter with a straight sword to just outspace and abuse you to hell. Wizards require no technical skill to play but you need to gauge an overall combat situation and worry about the positioning of multiple entities in order to succeed.

>>259112317Killing Pale Shade means nothing since he still becomes summonable when you're in good graces with Yuria, and you can just snag her set at Firelink after summoning her for SoC though I usually kill her after giving her Orbeck's Ashes or beating Friede, since her ashes let you continue to buy Poison Throwing Knives.

>>259113984I wish DaS3 had more non-identical weapon pairings with creative movesets. Imagine if the Farron Memesword L1s were dagger slashes into UGS swings instead of that stupid fucking breakdance, and the L2 gave you a unique charge instead of one of the worst parries in the game. Or if we got more stuff like Valorheart or Crow Quills. Maybe even some sort of spear with off-hand dueling rapier that gives you fast L1s to cover for the spear's close in weaknesses, or a Rakuyo style dagger + sabre pairing with massive mix-up potential, or an off-hand hammer with main-hand greatsword that has hyperarmor L1s to fool people into trading, and so on.
>YOU CANT TELL ME TO GO BACK TO MY DEAD GENERAL I'LL POST A WOJAK AT YOU
>>259111972>This post brought to you by that clown who thinks levelling INT/ARC prevents you swinging a melee weapon
>>259114708>NOOOOOOOOOO, YOU CAN'T POST ABOUT DEMON'S SOULS 4 ON THE SOULS GENERAL
>>259111972>thinking that STR is the harder option in DS2I almost thought you ranked them from easiest to hardest, but then the rest of the list doesn't make sense.
>>259111972In DeS Str is way better for pve than dex.In DS1 Str is absolutely fucking awfulIn DS2 Int is awful for pure casting since in all DLCs enemies have resistances out of ass, plus dex is worse than Str.In BB arcane is literally the best single damage stat and it continues to make you stronger up to 99.In DS3 Int has access to true damage and rarely resisted cheap ranged nukes which makes it automatically better than str or dex for pve.
>>259114708>HOW DARE YOU TALK ABOUT BLOODBORNE WHEN IT'S EVEN IN THE OP REEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
>>259115496cry about it, my dude. nah, you ain't even my dude, faggot.
Why is the pimp cane so fun to use in bloodborne? I don't like the whip in other games but here it just feels right.
>>259115682reliable damage outputwhip weapons in DaS games have always been garbage, with maybe the exception of DaS3
>>259115540You seem to be crying a lot my friend. Everything ok?
>>259115682It has a godly moveset.You have swings and thrusts un-tricked, the R2 especially gives you a tool to use against Kin. Tricked it's the king of spacing, with serrated damage that makes it perfect for beast lashing. And the transform attacks give you a way to instantly strike at enemies that are outside of the current mode's comfort zone (if something tries to dodge out of range of the cane the whip will lash them, and if it tries to dash within point blank range of the whip you can punish them with a thrusting attack).It's true that it doesn't have the greatest damage output, but its extreme versatility means that you're rewarded for playing smartly, rather than just pressing R1-L1-L1 or holding down R2 with the tricked mode.

>>259116521Dark Souls 1 isn't canon.
>>259116521You mean Gwyndolin? He was an optional boss so it's possible he survived the first game.
>>259116363It's the worst starting weapon by far because its base damage is too low.
I finally got to playing Dark Soul again after playing a bit back in 2012.Falling to my death seems to be my biggest enemy so far.
>>259116521Gwyndolin is capable of pulling out city-wide illusions that create entire beings that can hurt you and drop items. This goes completely in line with what the god should be capable of.
>>259117763Pretty sure gravity is the leading cause of death in all Souls games beside Sekiro.
>>259117836Yes I have played both Bloodborne and Sekiro and I feel like Bloodborne had way less cliffs and falls too.
>bought Dark souls 1-2-3 3 months ago>now bounce from DS to vr shit, nothing else hold any interest why did I had to ruin every other game for myself
>>259117981Oh yeah, Bloodborne has almost no platforming and the character also takes less fall damage. They were even nice enough to make sure you can't fall into the ocean in the Orphan fight.
>>259117791no, aldrich, the handmaiden sells smough's set when you kill him, and the fextralife page says aldrich consumed him.>>259117173this makes sense, although it's retarded.

Just finished DaS1. What's worth doing in NG+? Also, what's the best way to PVP?
>>259139252nothing is worth doing in ng+learn to abuse lag and backstab
>>259139853this and this
>>259139252NG++ is required for getting all boss soul weapons without trading but otherwise it's just a difficulty boost. You can get slabs again too, beating the game over and over is actually quicker than farming darkwraiths.Make a level 120 dude and hang around township for a while with the dried finger active.Remember you don't need to minmax your build but it helps if you didn't fuck it up in any major way.
>invade as sunbro>get sunlight metal for killing hostthis isn't rightalso>win about 50% of my invasions as a sunbro, with another 5% killing themselves in PvE before I can find them>Never won once at PvP as a watchdog, finger, or blue.Why am I so bad at DS3 compaired to 2 and even 1?
About to start NG+ on DS3 for the first time and I had a laundry list of...rather specific questions/concerns1. What doesn't carry over that matters? Mostly concerned about shrine maiden vendor stuff so I bought out all the armor and am stocking up on twinkling/scales (trying to get about 50 of each). 2. Do I have to level up 5 more times to do the usurpation ending? I'm not terribly concerned about going past 120 since I hear matchmaking stays consistent up to like 133 but I don't want to go any higher than 125-130 without fucking things up if I can manage it (If anything I'll just lvl vit for some more fashion options).3. Trying to get all the pale shade gear AND get that ending and I want to make sure I have this right...if I'm understanding this correctly...>Spawn Yuria by lvling up five times from Yoel>Hit her twice to piss her off>Kill pale shade invader in Farron Keep>Go absolve sin at shrine>Summon pale shade before watchers for the gesture>Do the shit with Anri in smouldering lake>Go piss Yuria off again>Kill pale shade at Irithyl>Absolve sins one last time>Complete the rest of the quest lineIs this right?4.What NPCs drop things that I can't get any other way? Off the top of my head I think it's just Cornyx and the friendly giant but I want to make sure before I indiscriminately murder all the nice people in this game.5. How do NG+ cycles affect matchmaking? I spend a lot of time placing sunbro signs in high level areas and while I know anyone from like....103-150 can summon my ass at 125 I'm not sure how being on a different cycle will affect them summoning me (or me summoning them and invasions for that matter).If there's anything significant that I'm not asking then feel free to add that...and thanks to anyone who takes the time to answer these potentially ignorant inquiries.
>>259139853Don't forget toggle escapes.>>259146919Ashes don't carry over, buy all the late-game consumables, ammunition and materials you can. Also, make absolutely sure that you grab every single Slab you can, you only get one chance to grab each one per playthrough.Yes, you need to level up 5 times with Yoel to get Yuria to appear and start her questline, this is literally how the SL125 "meta" came into existence.For Yuria's questline, technically you can just summon Pale Shade for Abyss Watchers and then piss Yuria off to trigger his invasions. Talking to her before Anri at Carthus is entirely optional, you can keep her pissed off for one long duration instead of breaking it up twice and paying the sin fee twice.The only NPCs that truly matter for killing are Yorshka and Yuria. The rest either only drop ashes or you can get their stuff through other methods.NG+ cycles do not affect matchmaking at all, only soul level and weapon memory.You should also make sure that you infuse anything you want before going to the next NG cycle, since coals also don't carry over. If you're doing any form of elemental build it may be a while before you can get access to those infusions again.
>>259112510I always kill ehr before abyss wathcers so i both get the bow and get to kill the shade. i only lose out on the obreck ash blade (and proper bow) on new charactersThe rigid quest shit and the missibale things (like NPC invaders) are the worst part of ds3 in my opinion.
Just started DaS3, and holy fuck the claymore is a monster. Why did they make it such an early game weapon? So far, I've floored most of the bosses and mobs, pretty fun. I'm past the Farron Swamp area and killed the mage boss. Do the bosses get better though?
>>259147532>Grab every single slab you canI got 14/15 slabs (keeping the sword fragment for now) so I should be good there.>Summon pale shade then piss Yuria off...So I'll still get "credit" for the Anri stuff while she's mad at me? That's what I was most concerned about but I guess I can just rush to the Irithyl invasion spot after Smouldering Lake and get that over with.>You can get their stuff through other methodsSo I don't have to kill the giant (for the Hawk ring) and Cornyx (for his armor)? I was under the assumption they were unique. As for Yuria I just plan on summoning her for Soul of Cinder and getting her stuff that way. The hell does Yorshka drop btw?>NG+ cycles don't affect matchmaking at allSo I can summon a friend who's in a lower NG into mine and vice versa? (and invasions/blue summons will function as if we were all on the same cycle I assume)As for infusions, I already took care of most of that but this character is a dex/int build anyway and the crystal coal is really early so I'm not worried. Also...let's say I want to go to 130 (I'm really fucking tired of wearing light armor and wanna dump 10 points into vit if I can). Will that affect matchmaking in any meaningful way if I stop there for good?
tfw no dlc on ps now and no money for a bloodborne machine
>>259148276>Do the bosses get better?There's two more shitter bosses in the cathedral and catacombs areas but other than those two the rest of the game is solid imo. The lords of cinder fights are all really good. Make sure to keep up with Onion bro's quest if you want one of them in particular to be especially gratifying, I'd go look him up to make sure since parts of his quest are easy to fuck up
>>259148398The giant automatically dies when you loot all three white trees, you just go back up and pick up his ring afterward. As for Cornyx's set, you don't get that by killing him, you get it by doing a convoluted "summon an NPC and have them survive" questline bullshit for Old Demon King, and then going back to where you met Cornyx for the first time. Yorshka drops her chime when you kill her, it's the most powerful chime at 50 Faith or above.As for matchmaking, you just have to stop at 132 and you'll still have full interaction with 120 and above. Fuck duelists and their delusions of honor.
>>259148763Alright, cool. I got the GOTY edition with the two DLCs. When and at what SL should I start them? Will I get kicked into NG+ if I kill the final boss like in bloodborne?
>>259148854>Summon an npc for old demon king for the armorFucking hell...I remember seeing that summon (assuming it was the random "of the great swamp" guy) but I don't think I actually used it.and 132 it is I guess, that'll make fashion a hell of a lot easier, thanks friend.
>>258903302lmao it took me like 10 minutes
>>259148713>psnowWhy the fuck are you paying money for that scam. And it's not like a Pro costs all that much either, just wait for a Black Friday deal or some shit.>>259149398The DLCs are "technically" harder than the base game, just like TOH, but there's nothing stopping you from going in earlier. The "official" recommended level is SL80, after you clear out the final mandatory zone in the game, but if you're good you can jump in before then.And thankfully the game lets you choose when to go into NG+. The reason they had that shit in Bloodborne is because it was developed "after" DaS1, where they also pulled that bullshit. None of the quality of life improvements from DaS2 made it into Bloodborne unfortunately because both were developed at the same time.
>>259149398The first DLC is probably gonna wreck your ass if you aren't at least 50 but there are quite a few goodies you can bitch run to if you're good at dodging (like there were before Ludwig in Bloodborne). There's a shield in particular that I'd absolutely go get as well as a fantastic str bow and one handed weapon. You gain access to it as soon as you get to the cathedral area I mentioned and talk to an NPC there (which you should be about to get to if you killed the crystal sage boss). The second DLC is only accessible if you're either at the base game final boss or finish the first one and if you're able to do either of those things you're able to do it too...so don't worry there. As for NG+...nope, you get a prompt asking if you want to start it after you kill the final boss and if you say no you can just play as normal and start it whenever you feel like it from the main hub (a new option will be on the bonfire to start it).
For bloodborne what level should I be when I finishh the game? I think i'm at 63 now and feel like this is high enough, I don't want to over-do it, what did most of you guys get up to on your first playthrough? I've squandered a lot of echos on healing pots and silver bullets because I didn't want to level up too much and make the game easier or something like that... I'm at the about to fight mergo's wet-nurse now.
>>259149970Whatever level you feel comfortable beating the game at is perfectly fine. If you can beat it at BL63, then all the better. If you haven't done the DLC though, there's no shame in leveling up more since that's tougher than the base game.
>>259150073When am I supposed to do the dlc?
>>259150339About 70-80 the first time, possibly a tad higher.I usually try to do the first boss at about 50 because I like a lot of the gear the becomes available after he's dead.
>>259150339If you're about to fight Wet Nurse, whenever you want. If you want a tiny bit of extra dialogue though, beat the DLC before fighting Wet Nurse.
>>259150514The fuck happens if you beat the DLC before you beat Wet Nurse?
>>259150514I was about to ask the other guy this but since you've said that, what I was gonna say was... Is there an order? I guess your answer kind of confirms it? How am I supposed to know when i'm supposed to enter the dlc though?
>>259098915spacing anon, are you around? i want to fight you again. please respond.
imaging browsing this thread without having played demon's soul's
>>259150741>How am I supposed to know?You really aren't desu, I enter it right after Amelia each run because I love the weapons and old hunter/constable sets but as far as finishing it just do it before the final boss/wet nurse fight and at around lvl 70-90 if you want a comfortable level of challenge.
>>259150678Extra dialogue. Not like you have any pressing reason to kill Wet Nurse anyways.>>259150741All Fromsoft DLC is "balanced" to be harder than the base game, but if you want extra goodies then you go in earlier. The best indicator of when you should enter the DLC is how badly you get your ass kicked by the enemies there.
>>259151263And when in your runs do you do amelia? I did Amelia after father gascoine and cleric beast, making me very low level, i hadn't even reached the witch of hemwick before I killed Amelia. Apparently killing Amelia starts to really open the game up and she's a central boss/theme or something like that, and also you lose access to npcs and stuff? I think me doing amelia early or going to some area before killing her stopped my quest with the bird lady crow person assassin and also lost out on sending some npcs to the nurses (or whatever they are in cathedral ward and the other place) ??
>>259151251>no ps3>pc not good enough to emulate it at a playable framerate
>>259151809I'm usually 15-20 when I kill her, and afaik those NPCs on the street don't let you talk to them until after Amelia is dead aside from the old lady in Central Yharnam...the two ones on that strip past the gate you need the badge for will just flip out on you until Amelia is dead. The Hemwick area is also locked off until she's dead.As for Eileen....I remember the next part of her quest (killing the NPC that shows up in Gascoigne's boss area after she shows up outside the chapel) becoming available after Amelia is dead too...about the only thing you can do NPC wise before she's gone aside from saving the pissy old lady is meet Alfred for the first time.tldr; The game literally forces you to go kill her before the rest of the world opens up. I think the ONLY place you can possibly go before fighting her is old Yharnam...and even then I'm not entirely sure if you can go there before she's dead.
>>259151809Oh and for the record...when I say "enter it" I mean "run around like a crazy person and grab the saif, boomhammer, beast cutter, pizza cutter, amygdala arm, and armor sets before dying a horrific death." I usually can't make any meaningful progress until I'm at least lvl 40-50 and even then it's a huge chore to get past the first boss (who is arguably the hardest part of the DLC).
>>259152636The only areas you can't access before killing Amelia are the Forbidden Woods, the DLC, and maybe pre-bloodmoon Yahar'gul.
>>259153054I remember the gate to Hemwick being locked and the crazy ass shadow guys not being there until Amelia was dead...also the snatchers that take you to Yahargul don't spawn till she's dead.You literally can only go to old Yharnam afaik, I've never tried though since I always rush to her so I can get to the DLC/Cainhurst for the gear I wanna use that run (all the fun shit is in one of those areas).
>>259153397AKSCHYUALLY>the snatchers spawn after you kill bsb, not amelia>the gate to hemwick isn't locked, no idea what you were smoking desu
>>259153576Yes this. I googled and the reason my quest failed was that I went this way and opened the gate to hemwick and lost access to the rest of Eileen's story-line then. :<The gate doesn't require a key or anything to open it, you just press X! I did the whole of that area before going back to beat Amelia the first time and opening up the rest of the routes.
>>259153576Nigga when I go there before Amelia it's just a sunny area full of hunters and a locked gate. After she's dead the gate opens, it gets dark, and those shadow fucks spawn. You might be right about the snatchers tho....fuck idkNow I feel like I need to go start a new game just to see if I'm insane or not.
>>259154516trust me anon, you're just fuckin coocoo. i do witches AND paarl before amelia on most of my playthroughs

Do all mods get you banned from online play, even the most innocuous cosmetic ones?
>>259167862If you need to do more than use igp11, use the mod engine that automatically takes you offline.
>>259167270what a depressing image
>>259167862Using iGP11 you can use most any texture mod no problemsThere's a few different ways to load other mods like sound mods and model mods: One involves using UXM to extract the game files from the encrypted archives and modding the game's .exe to load files outside of said archives. I used this method in conjunction with iGP11 to have a few sound mods for a while, nothing bad happened to me.The other makes use of the Mod Engine, which basically does the same thing as the previous method only without extracting any files. This automatically sets your game to offline, though you're welcome to go online and see what happens.
