everything is already known about the dlc thanks to a hacked pc version.

3 bosses of which 2 are reskins and one is just a trio of stronger phantoms.

>>254225037
Why, like fuck man, why are they doing this, season pass ok fine 3 DLCs alright, but then reskinned bosses and a trio boss of just normal fucking NPCs like goddamnit. I wasn't one of those guys who hated this game and what it did to the series I like this game but man this feels like a complete ripoff with no shame.
>>
>>254224720
Oh lookie, they haven't learned anything from the complaints that everyone had and start the fight with a bitch slap that removes 1/3 of your health.

I know it's easy to avoid after the first time before you faggots start screaming at me, but it just goes to show how poorly this dev team understood the Souls games.

they add the item you need to access the dlc automatically to your inventory, so casual pcfats have no trouble finding it.
>>
>>254225037
I played the DLC and this isn't fair.

Nashandra 2.0 is another queen representing a shard of Manus and play totally different. Has some AoE spells, shotgun spells and teleports around and melees you while summoning skeletons and a golden Vestaldt.

The dragon is very similar to Kalameet and the least original. Luckily Kalameet was a great fucking boss so I don't really have a problem with that.

The three phantoms have a fucking cool area before them, are pretty out of the way and are basically a test on how well you PvP.

Time is strange in Drangleic. The devs might have not intended DLC at the start, but, as the Ancient Dragon puts it, "The murk stirs and shifts." You can never tell what's going to happen to Drangleic next. It's a strange and volatile world.

Funny. As soon as they raise in popularity and their games start selling million they go all western. Even praised Activision and EA for their business practices.

lolno. People who say that the DLC has been "hacked" just don't know what the fuck hacking even is. What you gotta do is go to the door that will lead to the DLC area, use the Praise the Sun! emote and you'll be able to walk past it. Dunno if it's fixed now, but that's how everyone did it.

Worst level designs and bosses in the series. Also too many bonfires for casual shit, soul memory, and just as a whole felt really uninspired.

Hitboxes are absurdly bad, enemies and bosses are mostly boring, ridiculous tracking on attacks, the bulk of the game's content being locked behind the 70~% mark, weapon scaling being complete shit on anything lower than an A rank, endurance being gimped to all hell and having the worst diminishing returns in the game, etc. I could go on, but that should be more than enough.

Oh no, I'm sorry, hating DaS2 alone obviously means that you hate the whole souls series.

Bed of Chaos is the most obvious.

Then there were three versions of the Asylum Demon.

Arguably the Centipede since most of the boss arena was essentially unusable.

Other than that I thought the bosses were fine, though.

No, because they actually fixed scaling, albeit after several patches. As it stands now, there is no real reason to use anything other than an infused weapon coupled with a buff since scaling does not bridge the damage gap at all.

That said, there are a shitload of things I don't like and it's a major fucking disappointment and by far the worst souls game.

Chef tells a soldier to spread the word to all the towns on how to destroy these places, in reference to a scene from the film Independence Day. Randy then announces that the Wall-Mart's "heart" was their desires the whole time. Oblivious to the fact that the boys consider this obvious, Randy explains pedantically how the residents of South Park had allowed their consumerism to work against them and nearly destroy their cherished small-town charm. Realizing their mistake — albeit only on the surface — the townspeople loyally return to shopping at Jim's Drugs, which is shown to gradually grow larger until it reaches a Wall-Mart wholesale fashion and is later being burned down itself. Watching it burn, the townspeople vow not to shop there again, and they immediately head to the local True Value (no doubt to repeat the same mistake).

From the little PvP I've played in DaS2, its been remarkably positive.

It's so different from seeing everyone and their mothers in DaS using the exact same builds and weapons, because more weapons are actually fucking viable compared to DaS.

I feel like a lot of the hate DaS2 gets is just people who've gotten used to the "dark souls experience" that was surprisingly foreign and exhilarating back when DeS and DaS came out.

As a game, I prefer it over the first. Its much easier to play with friends, its much easier to fuck around with builds thanks to a lot of weapons not being shit and having better trade-offs, and I like the multipath splits that leads to treasures and shit that they sort of brought back from DeS that DaS lacked by comparison.

this is more of a person preference sort of thing, it makes you have to be more careful about choosing which weapons you dedicate yourself too. it gives you more than enough shards to beat the content.

I'm using non infused dual clubs for pve and non infused main and offhand estocs for pvp and i'm having no problems at all.
Pure physical is the most fun way to play and since rolling trough magic and arrows/bolts is the easiest thing ever most have to get up close which really seems to be a problem for most people.
They're beeing baitet into attacking way to easy.
But when you actually have a few good 1vs1 matches i could play forever.
Beeing beelbro but only doing 1vs1 is fun, i'll let others fight first or go away if some other bellbro joins in.
I even let the host heal as often as he wants

>>254231191
there is a huge difference between hating something because it is popular and hating something because of actual reasons

soul memory single handedly destroyed pvp in order to fix a very minor problem that wasnt even that big of an issue in the first place (twinking), they could have fixed it by making soul memory go away after NG but instead decided to keep it in which makes the meta even more fucked than at DaS1's worst points

I actually enjoyed the PVE over DaS1 even though it had glaring issues: hitboxes, nonsensical level design, hilariously simple boss fights that were often easier than the mobs you had to kill to get to them, gutted NPC stories and somehow even worse covenants than DaS1.

the pve is decent but people dont get 500 hours+ in a souls game by playing the story

Daily reminder that poise works in PvP now and that stunlocking shitters are getting fucked left and right.

It's hilarious to see how many actual new players DaS2 got, when they can't handle hyper armor because they were so used to just mashing attack to get free stunlocks for like 80% of someone's health using their buffed sticks. And it's even more hilarious that they never announced it in the patch notes that they fixed it.

More often than not the value all of the dlc ends up being half of the games new retail price. They know theyre releasing dlc and how much it will cost so they may as well say if you want to experience the full game gives us 89.99 or 59.99 for the standard edition.

Yeah.

It's one thing for a boss to have a certain gimmick, like the demon of song, where you can't do any harm on 75% on its body or something and have to hit only certain areas.

It's another to just make you run and jump like a super mario bros asshole over spontaneous insta-death holes while avoiding virtually-insta-death bitchslaps, in a game that clearly isn't about running & jumping and platforming.

Blue Sentinels should be able to help all people who are invaded except for people from Brotherhood of Blood. This should include Belfry invasions and people that are summoned as a grey spirit to a Rat Covenant member's world.
Way of Blue should get 2 blue sentinels to help them while everyone else just gets 1.

Also give people an infinite Red Orb to increase the number of invasions, which would also increase the usefulness of Blue Sentinels

here come the idiots on /v/ who talk like they knew shit
the kick had no use whatso ever
the shove on the other hand is great to punish turtlers and to initiate
fuck, it made almost everyone drop the shield for the the most time after the game was released and you almost saw nobody using it cause they were to dumb to dodge or stop turtling, it took long until they finally smartened up to avoid it and the watchers shield only got used because of the parry
and its also great to start a combo, especially against people that try to stay to close and backstab you
of course you will fall on your nose if you only spam it constantly, but use it wisely and its a great addition to your regular moves
i still use it regulary in PvP and played hundreds of hours in DaS2

You don't know what a gimmick is. Giving attributes to a boss is an attribute.

Also Pinwheel & the butterfly don't go down in two hits, they might not be the hardest bosses in the game, but they're not really proper end-level bosses either. Nito and Sif are the proper bosses of those areas.

thanks for 'shoving' words in my mouth
i barely hit anyone with a shield with my shove, as i said most people completely stopped using shields for a long time after release
the most hits have been against backstabfishers that constantly try to circle you, thanks to the tracking of the shove its easy to hit them, and against scimi/parrydagger/watchershield user who tried to parry, both the shove and jumping attacks (which thankfully were made much less punishable than in DaS2) were the cornserstones of my battles against anyone who tried to parry

Nashandra has:

Elana has:
>3 hit melee combo
>Dark explosion
>Flame Swathe

Only difference is that Elana can teleport and summon skeletons and velstadt that inflict poison, where-as nashandra can summon those curse-inflicing orbs that die in a single hit.

I honestly don't get why people hate SM so much. Lower level characters get help from other lower levels and it stops people from just sitting there all day getting summoned for the same boss over and over. Same thing goes for PvP and bumps people up after what 1.2m souls? If you farmed that much souls then you should know what you're doing against other players.

That's not even true, there is a video of Miyazaki talking how he directs and what he tells his team.

no im pretty sure you cant go to a place and consantly invade people of a certain level, say like a irongolem build in sens or dickwraith cosplay back in DaS1 unless you use save backups
and PvP is inherently less diverse the longer you play, everyone can use the best buffs, the best spells, the best weapons and the best armor without a disadvantage and at the same time
yes diversity is still there, but it has been quite gimped in that regard
>>
>>254249153
Yes but you really had to level up END high to get low % for fast roll and inv frames with heavy armor
Which now is irrelevant with ADP

Maybe I'm missing something but why are you talking about cosplays in DaS when I meant DaS2?
Like I said, just because it's more difficult to do deasn't mean it doesnt exist. You can still diversify your build to you heart's content. It may be harder to PvP with but that's part of the allure of the souls series isn't it?

>>254249376

yes you can gimp yourself (I do that myself with pleasure), but nobody else does it cause they dont want to, you can see people converging against the the same kind of highly armored warrior with infused and buffed weapons in one hand and a watchershield/scimi in the other, using GMB and Sacred Oath

Yeah cosplaying IN Dark Souls 2 but you we more on DaS1 since you mentioned sens and darkwraiths. Low level cosplaying should still be viable as long as you have skill to pull it off.

Don't get me wrong though DS2 is fun to play and online works great, especially on pc you summon someone or get summoned, wait 3 seconds and boom

Excuse me, but i genuinely cant follow you here right now.
>Low level cosplaying should still be viable as long as you have skill to pull it off
Tell me what 'skill' stops you from increasing your SM by invading and killing others.
There are two critical facts that completely killed any kind of low-level invasions, both steming from the introduction of Soul Memory:
First, you will never be able to stop in one area and keep invading people that pass by, either you will get more SM by playing the game or just by killing people getting souls.
Second, people have absolutely no reason to make new characters, either you keep leveling up your character to do more things while you still can connect to most other people in the highest brackets or you just re-allocate your stats to do a different build, which makes new players almost the only source of new characters playing through the game

>>254254764
That's exactly my point. You CAN'T stop your SM from increasing which makes it so after a while you can't invade people on NG runs which happened a lot on DaS1. People would stay at moderately low levels and invade people who may have just purchased the game and have no sense of their surroundings yet.

Holy fucking dicks. I just showed up at Blighttown, and everything is cool, I know that it's supposed to be a hard check for first time players or something. The only problem so far besides those fucking archers is that I've only found one bonfire. The one on the bridge early on. I hear there's one down near the waterwheel at the bottom, but the two tries that I've gotten there I haven't seen it, and getting there is getting pretty taxing on my patience. anyone want to tell me if there's one there or maybe one before it? I know I have to git gud, but this will take time and preferably a lack of those FUCKING TOXIC ARCHERS BLOW DART FUCKS.

He just scratches anything he thinks isn't perfect, atmosphere, world design etc. wise.
I don't think he's involve into gameplay that much except for saying that it should be fair but a challenge instead of just beeing trying to be hard so i still don't get how they fucked up the gameplay so hard when it just needed a few tweaks coming from ds1,

Yeah, the only other bonfire is from the bridge, go down to the ground floor, then hug the wall to the right. It's pretty obvious, I have no idea how you missed it

The waterwheel is on the next island over, so inbetween where you get off and the waterwheel, if you need directions

Also, if you look around you can find and kill those blowdart dudes - they don't respawn

Yes I read your post which is why I came to the conclusion of you liking to hunt new players. Which is fine to the point where all you do is invade new players. Soul Memory "balances" this by saying stop killing noobs faggot and git gud.

You are seriously overplaying this card.

Yes there are some obvious examples of it being an issue, but it isn't prevalent.

soul memory does nothing but force players into brackets, regardless of skill or level.
did you farm? guess your getting invaded by havel-hexers
did you invade a few people? look at all those spirits of vengeance!
did you try to have fun with the game? guess what! your in the big leagues now, and its FULL of magic!

whether or not you invade is no concern. SM fucks over everyone.
especially with the new scaling for magic

If you're getting that many that's it's becoming a problem and they won't stop then you've attained Wraith status, which means you've invaded more than "a few"

if you farmed souls then you should have know that you were going to reach the cap for low level PvP so that's your own fault.
If you invade people then doing complain about being invaded yourself.
Just because you have to fight high level magic doesn't mean you can't have fun. In fact that's part of the fun and you should have know that from DaS1.

If you have trouble getting through areas while trying to complete them then go offline. Otherwise you brought it upon yourself when you get invaded.
>>
>>254260432
you are completely ignoring what im saying
why shouldnt someone be allowed to keep invading people in different areas of his choosings? say, hypothetically speaking, the game would force the invader to use somewhat equally strong Equipment as the host's or give the invader a penalaty/handicap
what reason would there be to stop him having fun disrupting other's playthrough while being on almost equal footing?
thats the whole fucking point of invasions and while many just tried to overwhelm new players in DaS1, many also tried to create interesting encounters for others

> which puts you at wraith status faster than you can blink.

wraith requires 100 sin

If you've only killed one npc you won't even be a sinner, you've done more than that

There was already a penalty/ handicap for invaders and it wasn't enough. Any more and people would complain about how much they're being handicapped in PvP and how it's not fair that the +15 weapons they have is only doing minimal damage. SM is a better way to stop this by making it so that if you want to invade low level then have gear for that area and invade a certain amount of souls until you're OP. If you want to keep invading that area then no one's stopping you from making new characters.
