Who was your guys' favorite NPC in the Souls games? Be it from DeS/DaS/2? Mine is pic related, I haven't played Demon's since I don't have a PS3, but out of Dark Souls games this is my bro right here
I've only just started Dark Souls last months so I'm still learning the characters. Artorias seems like a badass though. But Seigmeyer and Solaire's optimism are both greatly appreciated.
I like Ciaran's armor as well. Really I like all 4 of Gwyn's knights to be honest.
>you turn the NPCs hollow by helping them throughout their stories
"Good, good. What is bravery, without a dash of recklessness!"
That's something I'm not really used to yet. It seems like it's impossible to get a happy end for most characters. My first run though I didn't use a guide and so Solaire went nuts and I had to kill him. It's only later that I found out it was possible to save him but his story has the happiest end in that he doesn't die or go hollow. Everyone else either dies or goes hollow. Is it better for Rhea to get assassinated by her own friends than it is to let her go Hollow in Seath's dungeon? What about Seigmeyer? Either I let him die in a hole or let him go hollow and let his own daughter kill him. How the fuck do you win?
>played 3 different builds in a pirated copy of dark souls
>finally afford to buy PC version
>mfw jolly co-operation
Although I feel bad for blasting the gargoyle's ass with great heavy dongus soul arrow,the look on their face when I two shots a boss they were struggling is great.
I hope PVP is just as good,i'm gonna try to stay SL22 to invade people at sen's fortress
Probably that priest guy in DaS1 who absolves your sins and lets you leave convenants without making them hostile, but only because of that weird creepy laugh he has.
>"It is only human to commit a sin, HEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEEHE!"
Come to think of it, why are most of the NPCs in Dark Souls so creepy?
they all are kinda crazy.
That's why they are so memorable.
>"Heh heh. Thank you. That was a fine trade. I have this funny feeling we'll meet again soon. And we'll make another fine trade, of course!"
I've only just now started getting into pvp. Not really good at it. I don't think I completely thought my "build" through. I started using divine weapons, learned that Faith makes them more powerful so I dumped a lot of points into Faith and Endurance. But I take a lot of damage per hit so now I'm dumping points into Resistance while trying to upgrade my armor. In addition to finding a set that will protect me without me needing Havel's Ring to wear it.
>you'll never go on an adventure with her
I find this great,when only the bad guys laugh at the end is just too chessy to be funny,but in dark souls,everyone does that,so you never know which is the actual fag that is going to betray you.
>bearer of the curse,seek souls,before this land swallows you whole
More teetering on the fringes of insanity and hopelessness causes you to laugh creepily. Besides for guys like Seigmeyer who are obviously forcing out laughs to convince themselves they're feeling better than they really are.
a lot of people didn't like the ending of ds2, mainly because there was only one. but i thought it was clever in a way to only have one and not show what happens as a result, because you should know by now after ds1 that it does not matter at all whether or not you light the flame as it has the same results every time.
which covenant are you on?dickwraith?Cause you better do entire new build for PVP.
The more points you dump in SL the more limited gets your pool of players until the point that you only find meta build fags at that bridge from the DLC.
>The sun is a marvelous body,if only i could be so grossly incandencent
>game about how futile both life and death is
That's one of those things I didn't really know. So I guess now that I've finally beaten the game for the first time I have to start over. Also I'm a sword of the Darkmoon. Thanks for telling me though. I'm really starting to dig Artorias's sword so I guess I'll put in just enough points to equip it and go no further.
>everyone does that,so you never know which is the actual fag that is going to betray you.
You seriously think Lautrec's obviously evil laugh is indistinguishable from Solaire's cheery and friendly one?
If anything the laughs are an easy way to get the player aware of their personalities, I doubt anybody would let Lautrec out of prison if he did his KEHKEHKEH before you open the door.
bitch nigger's to afraid to step outside of the bonfire and go hollow
he goes hollow over seeing you do all the cool things while he talk shit about you
This stayed on topic.
Also rping as him is borderline OP.
NG+ Darkmoon have the benefit of murdering those people that killed every NPC before next palythrough.
AND ITS SO GOOD
Also, Onionbro was best bro in Dark Souls.
So far in DaS2 it's gotta be Vengearl. And Ditzy Fire Lady
Didn't he go to New Londo for something else?
Also, I find it kekworthy how if you show the pyromancer that one spell you get after fighting Quelaag, he goes off and gets himself killed.
>Lautrec shows you that the life of the undead is not about whores anymore and free you form the firekeeper so you can get gud
>Solaire cake walks you through the game spamming OP miracles at bosses in a selfish quest for a fucking headgear that makes he go hollow
0/10 wouldn't summon
Man he's got nothing on the Crestfallen Warrior from Demons Souls. Guy was so depressed, then just gives the fuck up and next time you talk to him he's a consumable soul on the ground. Hit me hard.
Well yeah after ringing the bells of awakening and waking up Fraampt he'll complain about the smell before saying something to the effect of "it's time I did something about it." And then he runs off to New Londo trying to be a hero only to come back a Hollow.
>use ring that silences your movement
>he can no longer find you when you fight
Man, I felt like a mamoth dick helping
Also that part were DSP dies to him is poetic justice.
Yeah his armor is pretty good stat's wise,i wish it wasn't so blood wet through it would look styling clean.
>tfw you liked the game's flagship armor but it turned out shit
I'm kind of back and forth on whether I want to move ahead to DaS2 now that I've beaten DaS1 or if I want to go back to DeS.
I'm going to guess that was a mistake. I haven't dumped a lot though I know I've dumped over 10. Most of it has gone to Faith, Endurance, and Strength with some into Vitality.
>Lead thy life as thou seest fit.
Those words. Plus he's the only giant I ever encountered that wields a bow, in anything: books, movies, games etc. Fucking glorious.
when you first enter the fog forrest, just keep hugging the left wall and follow it youll see a wide path that goes up and his head is laying with a pile of rocks, exhaust his dialogue. Also behind him is an item to upgrade your pyromancy flame
>implying a fire made out of undead bones don't taste good
why do you think they stand around it so much?
>What about Seigmeyer? Either I let him die in a hole or let him go hollow and let his own daughter kill him.
What are you talking about? If you beat up the Chaos eaters and talk to him, he doesn't die or go hollow. He just thanks you and you never see him again. His daughter's already killed him once.
I used my divine Zweihander to get through the game. I became absurdly powerful with it or at least in comparison to where I was. I only switched to Artorias's Greatsword just because I liked the character but I still keep my Zweihander in my back pocket.
Where is it ever suggested Crestfallen went to New Londo? I just thought "it's time I did something about it" meant he was going to attack Frampt, and either got his ass smacked down so hard he was finally pushed past the point of no return or just hollowed before he got the chance.
>making your Zweihander anything other than electric
Anything else would be heresy.
And yeah, it's not as good as it was in DaS1, but it's still my weapon of choice. It's a lot better for pvp than the greatsword too, with the wide horizontal swing. Better crowd control too.
Lautrec and Kirk because they're waifufags like me.
He shows up by the vase with the two transient curses after he says he's going to do something about it. I always assumed he somehow knew about Kaathe and wanted to get him to tell Frampt to fuck off or something. Or he wanted to get the Lord Souls so Frampt would hugger off having his mission fulfilled.
Until this thread, I didn't even consider the possibility that he was talking about Frampt when he was complaining about a smell. I assumed it had something to do with the giants in Sen's Fortress burning shit or something.
It makes more sense that he was referring to Frampt, but why would he go down to New Londo?
Probably to attempt to do what you do all the time and get the Lord Soul from the Four Kings. I doubt it was to talk to Kaath since that implies he knows where Kaath is and that also implies he has a method of dealing with the abyss. Well I suppose if he wanted to fight the Four Kings he'd still need a means of dealing with the Abyss. He was fucked no matter what. Gravelord Nito would've been an easier target.
I'm on my first playthrough ever of a Souls game with DaS 2, and I've fallen in fucking love with the Bastard Sword. To be a maximum scrub, I'm in Explorer's armor with Falconer Leggings (started as a Knight).
>no one mentions Biorr
>helps you in a tough boss
>holds off a dragon for you ALONE
Biorr best bro
It hurts, but now that I think about it the alternative end might be worse.
Because neither serpent has been seen for ages. Not only that but if he knows where Kaathe is then he also knows no one can even get to him without the abyss killing him first. And I'm not sure if he was buddy buddy with Artorias so he would've had no way to navigate it.
>Lautrec sits in his spot
>whoa what a qt
>h-hey girl wanna hang out sometime?
>I see... too good for a shiny ass armor faggot arent ya?
>OH COME THE FUCK ON
>bonfire is absent, cannot light bonfire
Hahaha, sorry. I just wanted him to meet his daughter.
So does she kill him? That's fucked up.
Those skeletons fucked me over some good three-four times until I said fuck it, warped out and crafted a divine Claymore.
Then it was easy as fuck.
>So does she kill him? That's fucked up.
She has killed him once before if you talk to her.
How wrong do you have to be? I don't get it? Did no-one else actually kill everything and then find Seigmeyer there?
>Felt really good about beating Nito on my first attempt
>Turns out I only did so well because of my weapon
>Good feeling now soured a bit
I went Divine since it was the first upgrade I had besides Raw and now I kind of made this image of myself as a holy warrior fighting in the name of God.
What's all those orange texts floating in the air and with strange messages like:"let there be light"?
Man, to be honest I didn't even bother using anything else other than +15. Then I crafted a Chaos Claymore for NG+ and got rekt out of my 10 humanities by the Parish Black Knight.
>She has killed him once before if you talk to her.
Wh-what? I never knew this. What does she say?
>have 165 hours in DaS, eight characters total
>always did zones in a weird order so I never met Seigmeyer's daughter or saw Laurentius go hollow or help rhea and get wotg, etc.
My favourite will always be the Crestfallen Warrior, though. I felt a friendship with him more than anyone I've met in the last few years.
>Laurentius never tell him where i got the pyromancy
>>go back down and talk to ingward
>dont buy all the miracles/sorceries/pyromanices of anyone
Feels good making sure everyone stays alive.
I also have a major hardon for virtually every female npc's lines, shit they got some good accents and delivery
>i am dusk of oolacile
>you..is that not..the soul of the man who fell on this spot
>Do not crack and go hollow
I've never cried so hard during a video game. When he started limping and even fell over while trying to swing the sword I just droppped the controller and shed manly tears and fired the last arrow into that amazing beast.
>summoning sif in manus fight
>have to kill him later to advance the story
>go online and realize queelag has awesome voice acting and would have been the covenant leader, letting you see her sick sister and heal her.
What is it with Japs and wanting to feel like shit? sometimes it pisses me off.
p8 because creighton has a really cool design.
Just started playing DS. Laurentius seems like the best guy. My friend let it drop that he'd go hollow if I let him seek out the source of the pyromancies I've gained, so fuck that. It hurts turning him down though.
Why can't I just teach him like he taught me? ;_;
>go back to anor londo
>meet the 4 knights
>they congratulate you, and want a honorable duel
>you beat them, they kneel
>you go on to meet Gwyn, with the real gwynevere and maybe his lost son with him
This is the good ending.
Saw a video about him that was pretty interesting. Obviously it's the loss of hope that makes a person go hollow faster- which would explain why the Chosen Undead doesn't visibly hollow any further after leaving the asylum, having been given a new mission- but it seems having their hopes broken or dreams crushed is what finally does in all the NPC's.
Seigmeyer has his pride stripped from him. Every time you "save" him, you're actually pushing him closer to the edge and he is visibly more deserpate each time you meet.
Solaire fails in his quest to find his own personal sun, and is left feeling lost and meaningless.
Big Hat Logan seeks knowledge more than anything, and is driven insane by the unpleasant realities he finds in the Duke's Archives.
Griggs wants to keep up with his teacher, Logan, but is eternally in his shadow. He tries to pursue Logan, but cannot overcome Sen's Fortress as you and Logan have.
The Crestfallen watches as his entire philosophy is proven wrong. The Chosen Undead achieves everything he's failed to summon the passion to do, and so he sinks down into the dark where he also hollows.
Man fuck him. I just wanted the goddamn ring. He have barked and woofed or some shit. Fucker tried to gank me without much warning. Ungrateful asshole. I even put his master's soul to rest and saved his ass. Fuck tha dog, man.
On my first playthrough I thought Pate was an enemy just chilling so I started whacking him and he started talking so I finished him before he could fight back.
>Friend wants help in Lost Bastille
>"Why the fuck do you only have a small soapstone?"
I was such a fucking noob then.
Fucking shame about the cape, Cr8ons armor is probably the most balling in the whole game but the fucking cape ruins the silhouette like nobody's business.
The worst part is the concept art implies they were considering capeless version.
>Obviously it's the loss of hope that makes a person go hollow faster- which would explain why the Chosen Undead doesn't visibly hollow any further after leaving the asylum, having been given a new mission
The only way you can go hollow is by actually losing hope in your quest and stopping playing.
>Jesus Christ Frampt's breath smells fucking horrible
>I can't take this shit anymore. I'm moving to New Londo. Because even with the murder fueled ghosts there I won't have to deal with the smell anymore
>mfw I made a Pate account just so I can trick people into kill NPCs
Man, I never noticed until now that Cr8's gear without the cape is fucking baller.
>We will never have Capeless Cr8on set
>We will never have a perfect Baller Swag Set with the full stuff underneath and the Cape
His voice makes my dick rock hard.
Also I really liked Lucatiel, it made me sad that her story doesn't really have an ending. The theme forgetting and being forgotten by everyone hit me hard.
I killed her after she told me to remember her name. Seemed easier that way.
Mixing salt with Whiskey will create a perpetual cycle of heat, since the salt will continuously try to evaporate the whiskey.
Introducing Sunny D will cause subatomic binding of those ingredients into a plasma type matter, and the heating will multiply. The acidity found in lemon salt will make this concoction incredibly acidic, and chili powder is the dynamite trigger which will cause combustion. Garlic will smell like shit and kill you if you are a vampire, but the rum is alright. Coarse salt will be the shrapnel. It's pretty hard to spot this as a dangerous drink but the "All in equal parts" should have tipped you off, as paprika cannot presently exist in quantitative values. I own a flask in real life
Well the world would still be fucked. It's just that rather than Oolocile falling and the Four Kings having the Abyss to hide in, you just have a flooded city to get rid of the Darkwraiths and the demons in Izalith
>no option to not light the fire, kill the Primordial Serpents in some Super-Hydra Bossfight and THEN light the fire and save da world
Fuckers were all assholes and they deserve to die. Plus they're creepy sounding.
cuz he funny as fugg
I'm not complaining. I'm saying there's an obvious flaw with his desire and what he sets up.
Killing hosts while brotherhood of blood doesn't increase your rank either.
>join Forest Hunter convenant
>pvping with some scrub and completely wreck him
>he indicts me
>suddenly get kicked out of Forest Hunter covenant
>Forest Hunter NPCs are now hostile
>Alvina bitches me out and disappears
>have to pay for absolution to get her to come back and let me rejoin
Fuck that shit.
>I was hoping we'd have an untarnished Balder set, alas we did not.
I saw pictures of the Sanctum Knight set and fucking loved it
Turns out it's covered in Sinh's poisonous green spunk and looks fucking terrible. Such a shame.
I never indicted anybody but I had to pay souls because I hit NPCs out of nowhere quite often because my right trigger on the controller is very glitchy. I have to buy a new one.
I know, right? I dig his laughter. it's beyond stupid.
Because it's humorous, autism-lad.
And you really think salt and liquor is does a highly lethal perpetual heat cycle even though every other cocktail or tequila has fucking salt in it.
I have this theory about the Serpents that they are somehow "stuck" to the places you encounter them at.
Like they are stationary, they can only move up and down from those places because they are "rooted" to something.
Don't know if that would actually have any interesting implications but yeah
>Killing hosts while brotherhood of blood doesn't increase your rank either.
If you were really in it for the blood, this shouldn't matter.
Maybe you belong in Way of the Blue. It's more your speed.
the enzymes in chili are activated by salt ionized ethanol and start to degrade your own proteins so otherwise mild toxins in garlic can sneak in and backstab you while your immune system is down
>If you were really in it for the blood, this shouldn't matter.
>Maybe you belong in Way of the Blue. It's more your speed.
I don't like either because they're both retarded. I do as I please, not because I'm some idiot who wants to "belong" to some shitty club.
>so what the fuck is the verdict does it break glass or it just another alcoholic beverage
>The guy literally said it fucking hurt him as a chemist
>It exploded and hurt him,melting the glass
Jesus your comprehension
>because I hit NPCs out of nowhere quite often
I hit the one girl who lets you level up in DaS2 in one of the parts where she appears out of nowhere near that castle area by accident. I hit her twice full on with my Zweihander before I realized who she was. Somehow I didn't set her aggro off or kill her. Felt good.
I thought linking the fire just temporarily restored the Age of Fire for a few hundred more years before things go right back to being fucked and someone eventually coming to slay your animated corpse
I didn't know anything about what would happen if I attack NPCs so I just tried it out. Also, I think some stupid lie message on the floor triggered me to that stupid ass action.
>tfw I almost killed that female undead merchant in the sewers as well
well, she deserved it because she was creepy and I thought that was an enemy behind the bars.
>that tantrum she throws after you smack that bitch
>single fucking summon for the easiest boss fight in the whole game, no dialogue, no story, fucking nothing
>xD SO EBIG TARKUS 2STRONK
We'll see when disaharides in unstable water/sugar/ethanol mixture increase the solubility of sodium chloride thus making your body unable to properly titrate the mixture before the hydrochloric acid of your stomach supercharges the base-acid subcomplex and melts your organs
>I didn't know anything about what would happen if I attack NPCs so I just tried it out.
If talks about DEmons Souls ever taught me anything, it was "don't ever ever attack an NPC for shits and giggles because there is no undo."
is bringing black firebombs as the starting gift a good idea? So you can rekt the asylum demon's shit and get his mace? is that any good? I'm too busy picking the master key for that shit
>inb4 kill it with sword hilt
niggas i dont have the patience for that
It's not so much the boss itself as it is the story behind how tarkus was supposedly the only person to make it that far, and further -- until he fell off of the rafters in the cathedral and got dragged into a corner.
As for him soloing a boss, I personally don't give a fuck about that. I just think he's an interesting NPC to have made it that much further than anyone else, excluding Solaire and the onion.
>I disliked him, he didn't look menacing enough for all that talk about getting covered in blood and the way he talked made him sound like a junkie.
I think that all just added to it, the voice acting is so fucking good too, he doesn't try to sound menacing or scary, just plain creepy and weird as fuck.
There was some clips of Titchy Gren in the beta stage and he had different voice actor who actually tried to sound scary and it just felt so off.
It's a crazy-ass midget with a blood fetish, that's how he should sound.
You don't want to do that. He's the only character who can fix things if you accidently attack someone important. You also won't be able to move back and forth between convenants in one playthrough if you kill him.
Also, if something like >>255877101 happens, where it would be no fault of your own, you're completely fucked if you don't have Oswald.
Dueling is full of the same shit you find in PvP because dueling, you get NOTHING that good unless it's for completion AND the matchmaking isn't made with SM, so you can be level 50 and fight a level 500 havelsmelter. I would know, I've 100%'d the game.
I don't PvP in that shit game unless it's with friends. It's just awful with the same shit everywhere. It's boring and I always win. I want competition. I don't want to win against the same shit all the time. If I did. I would join a ganksquad on the Iron keep bridge. But I don't. So I won't.
Get it? BoB ain't for me by choice. It's stupid, it's boring and it's not worthwhile and this has absolutely NOTHING to do with me not liking Tiddy Gremlin. Like all manlets, he's a cocky piece of shit.
ok thanks, I was just curious. I also needed him because he was the only dude who sold anti curse stones.
>You can farm moss in Darkroot Garden.
I know. But the garden is too far away once you go to Blight Town and stuff.
>you can be level 50 and fight a level 500 havelsmelter
This doesn't happen. Fuck off. You would have to be unrealistically horrible at the game and lose a fuckton of souls dying for something even close to this to happen.
Okay thanks, good thing i didn't waste my time trying to find out
I thought all the tears things were people crying about the difficulty
I cant lie, i got fucking wrekt the first couple times I tried it
>This doesn't happen. Fuck off.
To you. But it happened to me, let me tell you that much. You don't lose souls for fighting in Brotherhood of Blood. What the fuck are you talking about?
>He doesn't sound creepy at all
Every time he says "blood" you can hear the voice actor drooling a little
I think he's creepy as all fuck, the bit high pitched talking and the way he breathes and uses pauses is so fucking strange
>start playing ds
>having a shitton of fun
>decide to look up builds so I don't waste any levels
>some builds calling for 50 vit
I'm missing something, here. I'm SL70 and I've been cruising at 18 vitality. Is this with PvP in mind?
If that actually happened to you, then you seriously need to git gud. You would have to gather 50-100k souls at a time and then die, and then rinse and repeat dozens and dozens of times to get matched up with someone that much stronger than you.
Tarkus is my bro. First time I summoned him I thought it was another human and thought it weird that he didn't gesture back. After winning the fight I got summoned to help someone else and was amazed that he got summoned to. "Wow, what a coincidence!" I thought. Wasn't until later on I realized how much of an idiot I was.
That said I like alot of the npc's.
>witch beatrice, actually traveled the abyss on her own to try and kill the four kings, unsuccessfully of course
>rhea, just trying to journey with some bros(still unsure how they manged to get to tomb of the giants without killing pinwheel and getting kindling rite. THE ONLY REASON FOR HER JOURNEY)
>Logan, huge boner for knowledge with no regard for his own life
>Griggs, sells spells, chills, just trying to become like his hero
>Ingward, top tire bro, keeps the darkwraith bitches and their masters on lockdown for all eternity. "Oh, you killed em? Cool story, imma go get some sun."
>You will never nestle in Gwynevere's giant bosom being rocked to sleep as her breathing gently moves her mammoth breasts
>You will never play with Priscilla's tail
I got lost in the woods for a few hours and I laughed when I realized it was my own fucktarded self that got me lost.
I think you just laugh when something you weren't expecting to happen happens
aka actually getting let out of a cell he's been sitting in for a fuckload of years
>then you seriously need to git gud
Are you that stupid?
Can't you just accept the matchmaking is fucked? Can't you comprehend that maybe, those fights ended in a tedius stalemate because they couldn't hit me and I was doing almost no damage to them?
BROTHERHOOD OF BLOOD
Get it into your thick-ass skull, you stupid meme-spouting prick. Fuck your kind. You're just too stupid to live.
I went into the BoB at end game because I only had the interest of getting to rank1 and that was that.
>Solaire's incredibly sunny laugh
I still can't defeat that fucking dragon, even though i have passed the game numerous times.
What the fuck is his pattern? Sometimes he just hops away when i attack his below, sometimes he fucking scorches me to death.
even havel's shield isn't very helpful
I had something like that happen to me with DaS2
>be near the place where you fight that scorpion woman
>oh look, a red summon sign
>the name on it is "Lord Gregor"
>must be some kind of optional NPC invasion
>invite him into my world
>die because I'm cursed and hollow, with almost half of my health bar gone
>sign is back in the same place
>invite him again
>only later when I'm looking through my recently played with to message someone do I realize that "Lord Gregor" was a real person
Matchmaking is still fucked because of Peer-to-Peer play, and I usually get matched up with fucking slavs and fucking gooks who go for the new meta at max SL and lag like they got parkinsons.
Go to /dsg/ you cocksucker. Ask them about BoB and its matchmaking. It sure is something how you act based off your experience and not about a hundred thousand other people, you condescending piece of trash.
this is 100% true my brother died trying this recipe.
I figured out a pattern that works most of the time. Starting from the bonfire room in the Undead Burg, climb the ladder and go up the stairs to the bridge. Make a mad dash to the wall behind the stairs while the Hellkite Dragon burns away all the undead. Hang out there until he hops down. When he does you want to hug the side of his left foot (right on your side). When he jumps in the air and breaths fire the hitbox will just miss you and you can roll away from his landing and run back to his foot. If he moves from that spot just run back to the stairs until he jumps back onto the Altar of Sunlight and repeat. If you're feeling ballsy you can cut down his tail and get the Drake Sword
I should stop playing video games because some loser on the internet told me so.
No. I enjoyed Dark Souls II quite a bit. But the PvP? That shit is fucked up. There's no denying it.
Again with the "it doesn't happen to me" shit. I know it may be difficult to understand this concept, but it's simply wrong. Shit happens and again. I will say it:
Brotherhood of Blood arena matchmaking is not based on Soul Level or Soul Memory.
I'm not upset about anything. I'm trying to make a point with some argumentative little shit. I'm adding in slandering vocabulary because it might be on a level her or you may understand.
To answer your question: I do not suck dick
I can't believe this shit devolved from me saying I don't like Tichy Gren because there's an obvious and technical flaw with his dialogue and the PvP the covenant holds. If it was like Battle of Stoicism (human vs. human not phantoms) it would make more sense.
If anyone's upset about anything, it's the idiot who actually felt like arguing with me about spilled blood being figurative. What a load of nonsense
Fun fact; If people couldn't work out he was welsh they don't deserve help understanding him.
>know about this
>take them all down to minuscule health
>jump down and forget that he isn't a white phantom
>swing for them and clip seigmeyer.
I..I did it anon, it was me ;_;
All I'm saying is that to record footage off of the console version you need a capture device on top of your console, a PC user can just record whatever he desires if his pc can handle it.
Well I'm convinced you're stupid. So I guess we're both happy with the results. Undeniably, I don't feel shit at the game and you probably don't think you're stupid.
Well yeah. That's my point. I don't like him and the dialogue was a reason why I don't like it. People have a habit of just saying they don't like something and don't really give a reason.
I eliminated the middleman of asking "why don't you like him?" because it's just convenient
I saw a guy use drake sword in anor londo.
It was saddening.
>takes like five implements from Penetrator for me
>save his ass from the dragon because he doesn't use a bow
Tightest bro, always have each other's back.
90% of the time, without exaggeration, the red spirit is trying to gank the host while he's got one or more NPCs on him. I don't really consider me taking the heat off of the host to be ganking in any aspect; but you keep telling yourself it is, so you can justify the ass kicking you're continouesly receiving.
>implying I've ever been taken down by a BS
No, Solaire tells you the reason you and he are in the same world even though you didn't summon each other is because your two words are momentarily in sync.
When NPCs die they fall out of sync, probably.
>actually doing shit you're told on 4chan
The problem with DaS2's ending wasn't that, it was that nobody knows what the fuck the throne of want does.
cut from releaseDLC's will shine some light on this, but it still isn't known what the fuck the thing does.
>Trying to understand the handwave justification for why you can actually kill people or accomplish anything in a game where more things than not just come back to life
Midi-chlorians did it.
>Dark Souls 3 will introduce a character that you are supposed to be

Maybe it's just me that really wants a rival in these games, a recurring threat that you sympathize with. Alternatively, it could fucking suck and my proposal for it is probably an example of that.
Anybody find it strange that the only area with an asian influence was Lost Izalith? Which seemed to represent a Buddhist hell. The rest was fairly European in terms of architecture, demons, and armor.
I haven't looked in to Oscar's cut content much at all, but if that was what he was planned for, it's annoying that they didn't include it. I figured he was pitched as a guardian-like character.
I've never posted that before. In fact, I've avoided Dark Souls threads since before the release of 2, and barely visited them after the PC release of the first.
You should definitely look into Oscar's content. It was more or less what you described, as he understood just what was happening and that he needed a purpose.
If I remember it correctly, he was hoping he might be the chosen undead -- but he keeps getting beat to the punchline by you (the player) all the time. So eventually at the kiln, he turns on you.
That's roughly what I remember, it's been a while since I read up on that though. But if you want something interesting to look into, you should have a look at that.
I'd be pretty impressed if you could find something I've never done before. Take it as a coincidence if you want.
That's pretty interesting. Did they ever say why it was cut?
>Did they ever say why it was cut?
Not that I know of, but I never really looked into that bit.
If you haven't already, I'd recommend looking at Vaatividya's video on Oscar. He summarizes it pretty well, and also has Oscar's cut sound files in the video itself.
You spend the whole game hearing about this guy, expecting a big boss fight like Gwyn, and then you get to him and he's just a withered husk aimlessly walking in a circle. It was kind of sad.
>You can be kicked out of forest hunters for being indicted.
Wait, what? That's retarded. How does it have any members if anyone you invade can just get you booted from the covenant?
The music really did it for me. Hands down it was the best part of the game.
also watch this too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSdqDW3Mt7g
>willingly giving views to someone who steals ideas and posts from /v/ and /vg/ and passes them off as his own content
Seems pretty accurate.
His whole thing about Heid's tower of flame being a new city that tits god built after she left Anor Londo seemed pretty bullshit.
Epic Name Bro makes the best souls videos of all time.
ENB is great. His latest video (Dark Chat #2) has him talking about how he doesn't want to use Patreon because he sees it as taking money directly from viewers, meanwhile Vaati has had a Patreon since day 1. Hmm...
And ENB also shat on Vaati in his latest channel update video. Marcus is based as fuck.
>Straid was such an asshole
You got that right.
Also why did Straid trade boss soul weapons as well as spells? He should have done the spells while Ornifex should have done the weapons.
DeS: Bjorr, runner up Mephistopheles
DaS: Oswald [the pardoner guy, not sure if I'm mixing his name up], runner up Hawkeye Gough
DaS2: Straid, runner up Gavlan/Shalquoir
Straid is my favorite out of all of them, what a manly man.
straid, gavlaan, navlaan, agdayne, and vengarl were the best npcs.
>but it still isn't known what the fuck the thing does.
It's very, VERY explicitly said by the Emerald Herald that the Throne is needed to rekindle the first flame.
Not only by her, but by Vendrick in said DLC.
What are you smoking?
Agdayne is pretty underrated, I loved his insight into the world of the dead, and I'm still left wondering if "the one who gave us the first death" is Nito or not, because Nito was "First of the Dead".
Wouldn't it be someone who killed him?
He calls himself an Afinito or something with the word Nito in it, so I'm assuming he's talking about Nito.
The AI alies in Das2 just seem dumb. When you fight one they're surprisingly smart and put up a good fight, then in boss fights they just non stop hack away at bosses and don't ever seem to really block.
It's really odd, AIs in Das1 seemed fairly competent. The only one I can think of that's good is the Jester that you can summon for the poison medusa.
>The only one I can think of that's good is the Jester that you can summon for the poison medusa.
All DLC invaders and summons have stupidly good AI,
Except for Benhart.
>yfw you can summon Creighton
Fenito and milfanito, yeah.
Also, when the milfanito sing to the "little ones" they mean the fire flies, which keeps the enemies in the area friendly, all the enemies will aggro onto you when they stop singing because the fire flies will disappear, that was a really cool detail.
Ever wonder why the Milfs were in the Shrine in the first place? To block access to the Undead Crypt. They tell you that those influenced by the "Dark" are susceptible to their singing, so that's why Nashandra gets you to get the King's Ring since she is part of Manus, the blackest motherfucker to ever exist.
>talk to him both times in/outside of sen's funhouse
>see him in Anor Londo, progress through the area
>don't think to go back and talk to him after killing the silver knights
>he's gone for the rest of my playthrough
Probably a better fate than the one he had coming ;_;
How did you not put that together? Go watch TerraMantis' videos. Stay away from VaatiVidya, he's a shill.
Basically, when Manus got rekt his soul split into tiny fragments, Nashandra being the smallest. She longed for power, so she bribed Vendrick with her sweet dark puss, but it wasn't enough - she wanted the Throne of Want, AKA the Kiln of the First flame.
I frankly don't care whether or not he 'steals' shit. I haven't found anything on /v/, side for shitposting and the regular garbage. As for /vg/, I can't say since I haven't actually looked in /dsg/ since before I started playing dark souls, not wanting to have it ruined for me.
That being said, his information seems fairly good; regardless of whether or not it was 'stolen'.
>But I take a lot of damage per hit so now I'm dumping points into Resistance
Resistance does nothing. Literally nothing.
Just get Vit (health) and End (better armour) if you want to take more hits.
The problem most people on /v/ and /dsg/ have with him is that he always refers to 4chan as "some anonymous board on the internet" in order to please his reddit audience, whom then think he's talking about them.
Then again maybe that is a good thing, better let those retards stay where they are and not bringing them here.
I can see how some people would get upset with that, I suppose. Personally I don't mind either way, since it's the information that I want and he supplies it. I'm sure there are plenty of other places to get it, I just haven't found anyone else that actually makes decent DS lore videos.
At the risk of getting hated to hell and back, I'd have to say that I'm not a fan of ENB. The few videos I watched, keyword being few, I found that he wasn't being very straight to the point. A lot of unnecessary talk about shit that was unrelated, which put me off from his videos.
Too many to list for Demon's Souls. I really love that game and the characters in it.
There are a lot of good ones in Dark Souls too, but I liked the Primordial Serpents (Kaathe in particular), Ingward, the merchants and blacksmiths, Chester, Solaire, Siegmeyer, and Dohmnall.
The list is way shorter in Dark Souls 2. I liked Straid both because of his characterization and that he was willing to actually talk to you about things in general instead of clamming up like an asshole. Shalquoir was great, being well-written, lively, and again, actually willing to talk to you about what's going on in Drangleic and history as a whole. She was also mysterious in a good way, as opposed to much of DaS 2. Another good mystery was Grandahl, who shared with you the secrets and progression of the Abyss while seeming kind of scholarly in a way. He felt like a character who sought to understand both the Flame and the Dark and decided that the Dark was simply best for the world at the time. Finally, Vengarl is easily the best-written character in the game, having a full arc, an actual life to him before his current predicament, intriguing circumstances to his state of being, and a bond that eventually pays off with him being a summon against the final boss.
He probably just went there because it was close by and the first area wasn't dangerous. The hollows there still have their sanity left and kind of sit together in their misery. He probably felt that he'd fit right in.
DaS1 characters that enjoyed:
Big Hat Logan
Alvina (go not yonder knocking for nothing, I say! Y/N)
DaS2 characters I've enjoyed:
Lucatiel the Cockatiel
Straid (Second best VA in the game)
Shalqouir (I want to fuck that cat)
The Rat King
Garl Vinland because he just wanted to protect his fair maiden and I killed him like a bitch.
>we live humble lives. Leave us be
Both Patches are fantastic and I always like Laurentius and Solaire. I also feel immense happiness getting revenge for my waifu Anastacia
Haven't played much of DkS II yet
