Posted from the end of the last thread:

In my search for cut dialogue I've yet to find the recorded lines from Malenia and Miquella (the latter's ending monologue and the former's "sweet Tarnished, dearest companion" alternate boss intro) despite having scoured 4/5 of it so far. However I was able to find these lines from Godrick and Mohg further supporting the idea that they were covenant leaders.

Yes, here is his dialogue after you tell him that you spoke with the Two Fingers in the Roundtable Hold:
>Ah-ha, your intuition serves you well. My doubts had been piling up, you see… The words of the Two Fingers cannot be trusted. Truly, naught but rambling, senile delusions. I believe, that when the Elden Ring was shattered, the Two Fingers were corrupted, their guidance; skewed. Even worse, the Fingers harbor no love for our kind. That's the part that irks the most.
"no love for OUR kind"

Does INT or FTH get better melee weapons? I want to try a melee build using casting stats.
>>
>>389075919
>>Blessed dew
bit of a technicality, but even if a match lasts only 79 seconds it gives you as much as crimson medallion does, so it's "A tier but sometimes S" if you're really just willing to run away forever

Faith for sure. Off the top of my head, they get Sacred Relic Blade, Blasphemous Blade, Godslayers GS, Black Blade, Winged Scythe, Halo Scythe, Envoy Longhorn, and Vyke's Spear. Among many others.

Intelligence gets Moonveil, Ruins GS, Fallingstar Jaw, Royal GS, and Starscourge GS. And most of those really only come with an INT tax, Moonveil is the only proper int weapon on that list.

Unless you're invading and plan to run out the clock or waste flasks isn't it better to run fire or magic breath and just get more raw damage? Are all these rot shitters I run into just PvE babies porting over le epic boss melter to PvP?

I have several invaders with maxed embers in 3 and i never minmaxed poise
I literally never could understand any benefits of that half-assed system despite regularly using GS and UGS to trade with lighter weapons
My favourite armor combo was Black Hand with Sellsword Helm which left a fuck ton for gear.
>>
>>389078931
I think it was pretty useful to know whether you'd be able to poise through a hit because 2-hit combos existed. And stacking enough poise to tank a greatsword while using the war pick, for example, was fun a shell.

>>389077167
>clutch in A
Pearldrake removes 9% elemental, or a quarter that much in PvP. Clutch adds 12% damage. Removing quarter of 9% of 112% leaves about 109.5% damage. The clutch penalty itself is 10%. Even if we're going off the assumption you just never take damage (say, why is crimson medallion in your S tier again?) the godefry icon can improve the damage of suprise nukes by a larger amout. If clutch rings were at least squished together into one item that boosted elemental damage across the board, they'd be about the exact opposite of a pearldrake talisman.

>what does this do tier
moon lets you equip two barrier spells so you can deattune them if your enemy doesn't use their damage type, good at least for getting rid of spell clutter

>primal blade
a health penalty instead of a defense penalty means you can swap it on after damage and technically reduce the amount of damage bleed procs do, so it's about as good as filigreed if you know to only to use it for swaps

>scale talisman
the only thing that makes this worse than dagger etc is that you can only swap on-parry and not on being-parried, it's actually a very big reduction in comparison

>>
>>389079328
Since the other two fakes are the same I would assume Morgott made the fake Mohg to conceal the frenzyflame burial while not associating himself or anyone else with it
also it (the burial) is actually right outside the city walls on the map which I thought was interesting, like they were working around the law or something

No for the first two. For Morgott there just seem to be alternate takes of his existing lines with sometimes very slightly different wording.
>>
>>389076418
Right, I remember wondering what exact crowd(s) he could possibly be referring to given how eager he seems to dissociate from the tarnished when you first meet him, with the constant "you tarnished" and "your kind"
>>
>>389079905
That's the first half of this line.

https://vocaroo.com/1396RN4jCJsj

>Miquella... why do you abandon me?

It's placed in the same area as his boss fight in the textbook. Presumably this is when Mohg would realize Miquella's soul isn't in the husk in the egg, which sets up Rhico calling it cadaver and asking to be let "in to your dream, the world of your heart."

I was thinking the same when I first met him. It just seems that "you tarnished" and "your kind" are his way of disdainfully referring specifically to those tarnished who follow the guidance of the Two Fingers.

Cool, did you find any of Malenia's? For cut dialogue I was only able to find her alternate defeat lines ("Is this my first defeat? Bravely fought, sir. But remember, one day the scarlet bloom will flower again.") I was looking for her alternate boss intro and anything else suggesting she had noncombat dialogue.

Mohg's line here would suggest that you could still trigger the fight with him after engaging in dialogue. Presumably by siding with Malenia/Miquella and trying to take the cocoon back.

No retard it's adding 12%. It's 12% AR and not damage so with how the defense curve works it might be more, but the higher your damage is, the further you're out of the curve, the closer the bonus is to a true 12%. Even if you start from 200% and increase that by 12% for 224% your original output, you're not "adding" 24% damage. You're adding 24% of the original, but it's still a 12% increase. Suppose you had a spell that did 1 damage, but with the right talisman went up to 100 damage: the clutch ring would then bring this to 112, but you would say "wow! my ring is adding 120% damage!" because that would be retarded. That phrasing implies the order you equip your talismans in changes how they work, which is not the case. And either way, I can use your faulty thinking to discuss defense talismans in the exact same way. Suppose I get hit by a 200% damage nuke. Wowie, now my 5% negation talisman removes 5% of twice as much, so it's like, totally a 10% negation now!

>12%+
It's just 12. It's always 12. If you increase 200x by 12% for 224x damage, that is 12% more damage than you were doing without the talisman. There are zero ashes that benefit more from a scorpion charm than Alexander's talixman. Even if you have 200x damage so that your scorpion gives you "24%" the shard will just give you "30%". The shard will always be bigger because it has the bigger multiplier which is why you always use the original multiplier when describing the multiplier's effect. Even if you do one million damage, increasing one million damage by 12% is a 12% increase. Not this:

>>389082920
>~17% more damage
This means you do not know how these buffs stack. You're only able to get 17 because you're taking 17% of your base damage and not 17% of what you have with only the scorpion talisman unequipped. If you're comparing scorpion with other charms on top of it to something like jar shard then you're comparing two talismans to one.

You also forget the penalties work the same way. If I have something that blocks 50% damage, and my opponent does 200x damage, would you say I'm removing 100% damage? Because that sounds like you're calling me invincible. You would just say 50% like always. Which brings me back to the next post above

>>389082474
>All of the math I did kept everything as a percent so the fact that it's multiplicative doesn't alter anything I've written.

Seriously, if you think 12% is such a big deal, why don't you think the 10% bonus your opponent gets is a big deal? It's closer to 10 than 15 at least. If you opponent has JUST a pearldrake talisman on, not even one of the good ones, they negate 9%/4 of the damage you do. That's enough to reduce 112 to less than 110, which is the amount of damage they do back. The damage vs defense argument doesn't work when one man's defense is another man's damage. 1*1.12*(1-(0.09/4))<1*1.1.

Are Miquella and Malenia both children of Radagon and Renala? Or Marika fucked herself and spawned those two?
Why Marika has split personality? Radagon kinda looks like fire giant with his red hair. Is it possible for a person to be a vessel for two outer gods and they just switch places, taking control over the body?

Why they keep doing that? I'm still angry that Quelaag's option for dialogue and covenant was cut from DS1. It's such good RPG element, to be able to solve conflicts through quests and dialogue options and From avoid it like fire.

>>389088468
that is not how that works
look at the setup I had in the one shot moonveil video
alexander shard - 15%
spellblade set - 8%
magic cracked tear - 15%
ritual sword talisman - 10%
terra magica - 35%
magic scorpion charm - 8%

1.15 x 1.08 x 1.15 x 1.10 x 1.35 = 2.12x damage
if you add in scorpion charm the 2.12 x 1.08 becomes 2.29x damage. The difference between adding scorpion charm or not is a 17% damage increase.

"Minus" is the inverse of adding, not multiplying. Suppose you put the scorpion FIRST. Does it now add LESS than 17%? Are yog claiming the order you equip your talismans in matters?
>>
>>389091048
youre just arguing in bad faith or are retarded. No, the damage bonus from every source increases as well because the multiplicative total is greater than the additive sum. in that setup alexander shard adds close to 30% damage, not 15%.

>Dagger fashioned from a great scorpion's tail, glistening with scarlet rot. A ceremonial tool used by heretics, crafted from the relic of a sealed outer god.

Both because I like Malenia and Miquella and because that's really the only next step on the power ladder. Lore-wise we've already defeated a dozen-odd minor gods plus two or three full gods in Marika/Radagon, Elden Beast, and Goddess of Rot Malenia.

It's just 15 and 12, it doesn't change with the order, you don't get to put a multiplicative item on then go back and describe it's contribution additively without running into this problem. Again, consider the same thing but with a defensive item:

im just going to stop replying, youre clearly fucking retarded
in your first example the shard adds 16.8%, not 15 when combined with the scorpion charm, and the scorpion charm adds 13.8% when combined with the shard, not 12%

the point of the talisman still stands, and its why its rated A tier - it adds a shit load of damage when youre combining it with other buffs, and lets you one shot people easily. The defense down doesnt matter anywhere near as much as you think, because youre not combining it with other defense down sources like a soreseal unless youre a retard.

alright man you can keep being an autist and arguing over half a percent point
the fact is that you arent using these talismans like theyre supposed to be used, they add a greater total % damage when compared to the baseline when stacking them with a bunch of other buffs - thats their intended purpose. youre not supposed to be trading with these talismans on, youre supposed to be dodging or out of range so you never experience the defense penalty. You would not rate the crimson amber seed medallion at S if you keep it on all the time, thats not what its for. You swap to it, chug, then swap off. Same thing with the scorpion charms. You only use them to snipe or to one shot people.
Webm related is another one shot kill - this one did somewhere above 1800 damage with just alexander shard, godfrey icon, and lightning damage flask alone. Here it doesnt matter the scorpion charm damage penalty. If i added in scorpion charm and ritual sword talisman, that wouldve bumped up my damage from 1.52x base to 1.8x base - enough to one shot anyone with 60 vigor and crimson amber medallion +2 because gransax does a shit ton of base damage.
Thats how youre supposed to use these, and they do their job incredibly well.

>>389094641
>You would not rate the crimson amber seed medallion at S
I rated it A and I would keep it there without swaps. It's 8% health. If your health goes up by 8% and the other person's damage goes up by 8% then the hits you die in just gets multiplied by 1.08 over 1.08 which equals 1. If a spear talisman adds 15% AR to counterhits and about half your hits are counterhits, that's about 7.5% AR on average which works out to around 8% damage. Jar shard only ranks higher because an L1 can be your sole damage source much more easily. I know dsg fightclubs were too hard for you but you don't need to take it out on erg. Yes you can hardswap a scorpion on, but if you're actually fighting someone who does more than 0% damage it's going to be last in line behind all of those other talismans you yourself have admitted are a prerequisite for equipping it.

This is my second fully dedicated playthrough and I wanted to do I since I fully missed Ranni the first time. I started as a prisoner and my character's name is Prisoner of Fate.
I just recently discovered that dual Thrusting Swords are actually pretty top, but more importantly, Rock Throw is my favorite spell so far since it deal a shit ton of stagger damage to tougher enemies. Are the other gravity spells good?

Up until I got Rogier's Rapier, I was using the Magic Falchion, sidearm Scimitar. Is the Crystal Sword a good weapon to pair with the falchion? The dual curves sword playthrough was going pretty fun too.

the other gravity spells are fine i guess? collapsing stars does deal some damage but i suppose it's better for pvp due to the pulling aspect
the meteorite spells are garbage but you could probably make them work by hugging a large enemy and getting them all to hit but i never tried
crystal sword isn't a curved sword so you can't dual wield it with the falchion, i don't see the point unless you really like 1h straight sword r1s

>Long winded attack that opens herself to parry / quick poke
>Can be staggered easily
>Slowly walk toward you so you have time to heal

The only hard to figure out bit of her kit is prolly the Water Fowl Dance, and even that can be easily countered. Doesnt seem like a boss that you need to summon ashes and phantoms for at all

I thought people would find other final bosses with quicker paced attacks and load of AOE more unbearable. Like, i dont know, Godfrey for example

Malenia's the most straightforward and non-bullshit boss in the entire game with few to no gimmicks. No ganking, no ranged attacks, no AOEs except for one extremely easily dodged ones, no DOT, no arena hazards, no infinite hyper armor, nothing. She's just fast and strong with a counterable but complex and punishing move set. This triggers people because to beat her you actually have to learn her move set rather than just learning how to negate a gimmick.

There's a hilarious video that keeps being posted here that says essentially "she's bad because she has some ways of escaping stagger-chaining", despite her being basically the only boss in the game who can be staggered at all.

Get Radagon's Soreseal from Fort Faroth in Dragonbarrow. You shouldn't need any more endurance, you generally only want as much as is needed to stay under 70% load. You could use armour with higher poise to use your load more efficiently

Quality isn't bad, but it isn't as good as the previous games and is statistically weaker than Heavy in most cases. It also requires more stat investment to get higher damage than pure str or dex. But since you're not doing any casting that won't really be a big downside. I wouldn't change your stats much, but do try to get up to 50 vigor before level 100

its a pvp hotspot because its a mandatory area for mage builds and the only area with a proper run up to the boss.
and RL50-60 is like babies first twinkbuild because you get to have the stats for whatever stupid dumb thing you want to use and can still pump vig.
the fact that you aren't winning regardless is just a skill issue, most people are terrible at video games after all.

I laugh every time someone says to infuse the erdsteel dagger with INT (etc.) because it's fucking horrible, and all the people saying it's fine will add "it has the best AR/spellbuff at 80/80" like fucking anyone is going to go there within reason
recently reworked my 70INT + fth tax spread to use ~35/35 on the two and then 45 ARC for scaling and it actually works nicely.
I would have appreciated an elemental dual scaling like the prior games but ARC's physical and boosting aux (bleed) is very helpful in the meantime.

also if you wanna pressure a host and his phantoms here's the ol' Dark souls 3 technique:
face your back to them
cast carian phalanx
backstep towards them
the closer you get the harder it'll be for them to reaction dodge when you do turn around
also
collapsing star can do a 180 right before casting, so you can do a full charge and then turn around to instantly delete 1-2 people with the phalanx and the collapsing stars

most hosts and phantoms will absolutely shit bricks when they see someone doing this.

its annoying in duels, but people there are expecting it
in an invasion, especially if you've just peppered them with big and impressive looking aoes to get them all nice and flustered.
the trick is to keep them guessing what spell you're going to throw out.
you couldn't do this shit in DaS3 because you needed so many stats to have lots of spells, but thanks to memory stones Elden ring makes it insanely easy to be unpredictable as a mage.

You could carry a usable number of spells in DaS3. Off the top of my head a good mixup set was Dart, the burst one or WDB, Soulmass, Dregs, Greatsword, DEdge, Mist, barring flashsword
Going to 30/220(?) for the sippy was pretty much the softcap and you could painfully acquire the Darkmoon Ring for a spare 2 even if you had other mandatory damage rings and cast speed. It's not as solid as DaS1 (to say nothing of 2) but it can be done. The spells seem like an augment or afterthought especially as they require more stamina than almost everything else.
This game is a little more forgiving in that regard but I always feel I NEED to have 10 slots filled and it just gets cluttered. I also wish the casting stats had some small contribution to Focus, you could even do the same for physical/endurance since it's so much less valuable this time. Comparatively, INT/FTH is middling this time when you consider infusions, and ARC (LCK) is enormously improved vs the manserpent+anri BS.

Arcane is doing literally nothing for your whips as far as I know. Frost doesn't scale with arcane, and bleed only scales if the weapon itself has arcane scaling.

Elmer is one of those motherfuckers like Crucible Knights where half his attacks don't leave a big enough opening to safely heal. Just gotta learn which of his attacks do leave a big enough opening, and only heal then.

why? frost doesn't scale with arc and even if it did, you'd be better off using an arc spear than an int spear at that point

I'm playing Elden Ring on the pc. It's the first FromSoftware game I've played. I was put off by what I read about the difficulty of Dark Souls games, so I never bothered to try playing any of their games. I played Elden Ring and sucked right away. I was playing it like it was a simple Skyrim or Witcher combat game. I didn't realize how important tactics are. Suddenly, everything just clicked. I started dodge-rolling at the right moments, I started parrying and riposting for critical damage, and all of a sudden I started noticing even the smallest changes in the movements made by the enemy. I am frequently amazed at how my fingers almost seem to be on auto-pilot. It's hard to explain, I find myself making quick moves that I didn't even realize I knew how to do.

And I learned something about the Souls games. It's that dodge-rolling. It's so addictive and so fun. I was an absolute dodge-rolling whore until I came across a crucible knight. That's when I discovered the wonders of the parry shield and riposte crits.

By the way, I bought Dark Souls 1 for the pc and I am really enjoying it. I am also emulating Demon Souls, and that is also excellent. I and going to finish Elden Ring and pour myself into Dark Souls 1. Then I'll finish Demon Souls, and then I will do Dark Souls 2 and 3. I finally understand the obsession with these games, and I swear it's that crack-cocaine dodge-rolling. What a brilliant mechanic. Whoever came up with that idea is a genius.

The magic of i-frame dodging is when you internalize this fact: you're not dodging away from something, you're temporarily making yourself invincible. Once you realize that's what a dodge-roll is, all of a sudden whole new worlds are blown open. You don't dodge away, you dodge IN.

Glad you're enjoying yourself, anon. Remember to play completely blind at least once, because part of the Souls magic is finishing the game and the discovering all the stuff you missed and diving back in. You only get one blind playthrough, cherish it.

How are you casting Carian Slicer that fast from a neutral stance? Does Radagon's Icon work but only for right hand or am I doing something else wrong?
>>
>>389125557
nice shot
Collapsing stars is always a oneshot when fully charged unless the host/phantom dumped every single point into vig at this level
also a note about the staff of loss: I use it because I often finish people off with night comets and night shards most of the time, since I get them used to big fancy aoe spells that obscure half the screen.
Meanwhile night comet looks like a black glintstone pebble, but with the +30% boost it hits like the 52 int glintstone comet which has a very large spell effect.
if that's not your style I'd replace the offhand with the swordcery boosting staff and put on more swordceries, since it'll not only boost your carian slicer and phalanx but give you even more melee options to mix things up.
Good stuff either way.

best girl, doomed to rot

Honestly I hate that most of the questlines in this game end with the character dying. This made sense back in Dark Souls when everyone was cursed with undeath and the only thing pulling them back from the hollow curse was their purpose, their unfinished business. Once it was concluded they succumbed to the first sin.

But Tarnished aren't undead. They don't have that curse. The closest thing is the deathblight, which only takes Rogier because he was fucking around with a copy of Godwyn's corpse and messing about with the death shit nonstop.

FFS From give me a DLC where I can save half these motherfuckers through some long convoluted hidden shit. You can do it with Boc, if you really go out of your way. We have the hidden bad ending (FF). Let me get a hidden golden ending where I can save all my bros and hoes, get their support for Elden Lord and go summon them all in a big, harder fight with the Elden Beast like I did with Radahn.
>>
>>389141193
Shanehaight clearly belongs to a time when Leyndell had a non-combat 'town' area with people actually living in it (actually might explain the big fat chunk of Leyndell that's missing and replaced with a lake and why the main gate goes nowhere but into this water with no hint of what used to be there)
Kale's quest is a bizarre cut and Hyetta's is a poor 'replacement' but I suspect at least PART of it is because part of his quest was also part of the 'peaceful' part of Leyndell

yes but not at SL24 that's what makes this twinkbuild fun, you're running around with the stats of a high level mage from previous games.
Since you've got 60int and 10 spell slots which took 99 attunement back in DaS3, this isn't just a matter of scaling being really good since the meteorite staff in unupgradable, but also just the sheer variety in spell options.
you couldn't cast like 80% of the spells at this level when invading as a furry of farron.

They literally don't need any non combat zones in Leyendell. The city is only hostile towards you. Those NPC could as well be spread out around non-occupied spots which are plenty on all levels of the city. Shanehaight could've been easily sitting in the room below the big oracle dooter.

when you notice that your spells are doing half their usual damage, that's when you shift to only using night shard and carian slicer exclusively, since they're very FP efficient.
that's how I've delt with the (thankfully few) downscaled phantoms I've met.
for reference you can invade up to RL46 and if he dumped every single point into vig and put on good resist armor + talisman that is definitely something that'll turn most of your spells into wet tissue paper

Why is the summoning mechanic in this game so fucking restrictive and finicky? Its like From is anti fun. I love doing coop shit, particularly bosses, but if I want to get summoned I have to heavily restrict my level and weapon upgrades for the area I'm in, and then if I progress my character at all I lose the ability to coop there entirely. And you can't even (legitimately) copy your save so you can keep a low level version of a character while still progressing in another slot. I've made about six new characters and all of them end up being minmaxed to shit at Godrick and I hate progressing them further because Stormveil is one of the best areas in the game. Just let me have fun without all this arbitrary bullshit!

Seppuku need to remove a huge percentage of your max hp when you activate it
Keep the buildup. Turn it into a hypermode ability.

The solution to this would be having certain strong/lategame weapons/spells/etc. automatically add additional matchmaking tiers if present on your person (ie not in stash) when you initiate matchmaking
Honestly this should be the case with stuff found close to/at the end of the game anyways, at least for the lower tiers, there is ZERO reason why things like rivers of cringe and the like should ever be seen in use at Limgrave/Liurnia outside of NG+

It's still really fucking good in 1v1s it's just most people who use it are legitimately brain dead.

That's for lore reasons. Because there's zero reason for the most diehard religious extremist in the Lands Between to use heretic power.

What was in that mix? I know there is tear that allows you to have infinite poise, but does it also reduce incoming damage?

Basically this. I don't mind any of that insane damage shit as long as the people using it have no HP.
>>

Same with Rivers of Blood. If it removed a part of your max HP it would be an amazing, risky but rewarding ability to have
Shitters would just kill themselves with it like it was with Chikage in BB

>>389150324
pure faith is pretty meh

Best to pick one or a couple of weapons and build around them.
End-game respecs can be sketchy and I end up regretting it if I just want to "try something new". Better to start over then imo.

I really wonder how cherrypicked these screenshots are, do you just straight up body 90% of invasions or?

Or do people actually do the honest kind of coop in morne with everyone being new?

Did Mohg send Varre to kill our maiden, and then recruit us to the dynasty hoping we would find and kill Hyetta, in order to ensure the security of the Flame? During Varre's quest, Hyetta is also in Liurnia -- is it possible Varre was tracking her as well?

"made" no, but I messed around with invasions while levelling my guy from 150 to 300. 150-180 would still net legit activity in endgame areas, but getting up over 200 and beyond, activity really dropped off. Most of the action I am able to get at level 300 is dedicated gankers sitting at first step or boilprawn. These are the mean, coordinated ganks, with people that aren't skilled enough to do regular pvp but are also not so retarded as to be easy prey. It sucks. Stay under RL110 for invasions imo.

I invade Castle Morne at level 21 +3/1 all the time. You definitely body a lot of the invasions, especially since the invader gets a huge playground full of evasive enemies and fall hazards. The thing with password phantoms is that, the kind of person who thinks it's fun do to a low level area with your low level friend, while using your main dude and high level gear, is also the kind of person who is bad at video games. The semi-competency just isn't there. They all think BHS is basically an invincibility hack so they aggressively spam it and get destroyed.

>do you just straight up body 90% of invasions or
I have lost twice in all the invasions I've done in Morne, both due to my own mistakes
1st time was because I didn't see that the host had two phantoms (he was wearing the host ring and blended in with the terrain) and I got bodied in a single running straight sword r1 followed up by O, flame.
second time was the I greataxe user who was being passive while I played poorly.
otherwise yeah they just get bodied, doesn't matter if they have two phantoms with RoB or they're a bunch of PVE viglets who have no idea what all my spells do.
it's mostly just something to do inbetween beating my head against endgame bosses
in hindsight if my intention was to PVP I'd probably have stuck to level 14 or something since the increase from 50 to 60 int is not massive, but I wanted to do comet azur memes in limgrave.
