god damn this game... fuck. how do I get past all the eternal hounds in the court of damnation? I have sword of the fallen angel +6 and the crusader shield. is there any gimmick to this?
you need to upgrade your Abyssal Crescent Maidenhead to +8, then enchant it with Globulent Paste (which you can buy from Henrietta Handy in the Uneven Borg, or farm it from the Crypt Dwellers in the Dwelling Crypt).
Make sure you stack Prose, and good luck!!
Does anyone know where the Blue Blood Sword drops? I need to get my Evasion leveled up to at least 5 before I can make the Deviljho eat its tail, but there are no Plates to eat off of at all.
Time to drop the cosplay and invest in a Finesse scaling weapon.
Someone hasn't played since the last patch. Necro got nerfed big time. All summons reqs got raised and you can no longer have more than 4 2nd-tier familiars at a time.
Well there goes my fucking main class.
How are the other magic schools looking since the patch?
I wanted to roll a druid, but I hear they are pretty much useless apart from being a pocket healer.
I might have to, I found the Arcane Tree Branch staff when passing through the charred divide on my way to fight the Eternal Defiler.
It seemed pretty much shaman exclusive, plus the HP bonus could help, shamans are pretty squishy.
grind your ass to lvl 24 in the forgotten forest (sickly rats are easy to kill, even in grups) but don't spend any mastery points yet, come back once you are done and I'll explain.
>Going down Bard path
>Leveling PROSE, of all things
Good god, son. Bards play MUSIC, not sit behind a typewriter for days on end. You got to be a fucking rock star, not James fucking Joyce. From fucked up when they implemented other artistic pursuits into the Bard class.
You have to hunt the Sinful Dragon in Coloroy Mountain, and chop off the appropriate part. While you're at it, you may want to get all the other parts you can scavenge from the dragon's body as well. The tail's head makes a good helmet AND a mace.
>90% I duel with use fucking dragon phallus
just fuck off, this shit hasn't been funny for over a year now. stop forcing this fucking meme and start playing, I want a real challenge, not memeshitters.
I already spent 3 mastery points on the Sword of the Forgotten. That dam sales man from Maerk told me it was the best sword in the land but when I use it every third hit does shit damage.
God damn, everyone can't seem to fucking git gud. There's a set nearby that if you wear, he'll turn his tail and run to the room right before the boss. It's called the Fat Official's set, you can't miss it. If you get him to half HP with your fists or a similar pummeling weapon, you have the chance to let him submit.
Or you could, you know, summon the fucking official from his sign right at the beginning of the level, you faggot.
>sword and board build
>consider investing in pyrotechnics
>"nah, shit's for scrubs"
>reach oxygen golems
How the fuck are you supposed to get past these fuckers with pure melee? My Steely Venomed Lance +8 has been working wonders on everything else so far, but this shit is retarded.
Head back to the room with the singing dwarf, and ask him which way to go. He'll point you towards the portcullis, but don't go there, just check his pockets and he'll have an upgrade for your sword.
Should be easier that way ;)
>how do I get past all the eternal hounds in the court of damnation?
as someone who has never played DaS2 this totally sounds like some cheesy 80s movie dialouge about video games

>every flask they drink just reminds me of how much of a shitter they are.
I normally kill EVERYONE unless they managed to drink around 7 flask. But that is my own fault for being a shitter.
Any ethereal form of attack or a very large weapon. Not Bulwark Greatsword large, I am talking Malan's Maul huge. You don't even need the stats to use it right, you just gotta have a big weapon.
Why is Indecisive Warmonger such a bitch? The hitboxes on his whips are fucking ridiculous, and they make dodging the ice blasts almost impossible. I know about the Cherry Lancer strat, but he always seems to see me coming.
Anything that doesn't rely on physical elements is ethereal. Blubber magic is renowned for being heavy in physical damage. While it might be able to blow them to bits with sheer force like a maul would, I wouldn't rely on it because blubber's a hard resource to come across, if you don't like grinding.

>let's discuss dark souls but change the names of everything the thread.
The longer verses are great for getting from the second to fourth soul lanterns in House Vicus Mausoleum without having to stock dozens of casts worth of Want & Mesmer, or summoning. The Carers treat you like you're a resident and the Vicus Dead don't even leave their caskets if you recite the Ballad of Our Fallen Friends (just make sure you have enough fitness to sustain the chant, enough scrolls of BoOFF per lantern and knowledge of the shortest path between each lantern).
>mfw lighting all the soul lanterns in a row then entering the boss mist causes the Vicus Patriarch Hallard to crush the Craven Steward at the very start with his stone axe, removes his corpsefire aura and stops him from jumping around
Does anyone know where I can find a better version of golden skin?
I just figured that because the iron skin has an upgraded version, the golden skin would have one too, but I searched of all the Haunted Academy from cave to rooftop, but I didn't find it.
Found a Sacred Cestus on my way to the Long Road though.
How come the Saurian Wyrm of Blizzards oneshots me no matter what I do? It either gets me with its 360 tail spin or its icicle breath. I'm using full Gulruk's armor, with a AxeBlade of Toledo 12+ and Amroths Buckler 5+ and I have at least 35 points in Spirit Resistance. Should I reroll my char?
>Okay so to rescue the sun man you have to get 30 humanities, take it to a white spider boss hidden behind a secret wall, this will open a secret door later on, there are some insects inside and you kill all of them and then you come back later on and he survives then you can summon him for the final boss!!!
You remember that kid? Always saying obviously fake bullshit like this.
>keeping full Pavel's
you can bring it to Cee'eiy'eh for a cool mask
Breaking the thread here with this question but there was a video where someone was narrating a lets play of dark souls doing this exact same thing and it was hilarious. Anyone happen to have it? I really want to watch it again.

Thank you based spearbro, cleansing the world of scrubs.
Try going through the Wicked Woods first, there's a lot of rubies to find to upgrade your gear, plus the merchant will sell you a bag of salt you can use during the fight with the wyrm to lower the strength of his attacks.
I hope you got your Crafted Gloves though.
You have to get to the Phlight plains' agency, and traverse the four U-bends. Bear in mind that the whole trick in the level is to keep a high health and it's not that easy. Pulling it off is generally extremely painful.
Magic (most of the types)is considered one of the hardest builds to play as (except blubber magic), because you have to be completely stationary when using most of the good spells which can have long cast times. This means you have to be ready to use your magic shield at any time which requires insane reflexes due to the shield only being able to activate in one second intervals. Mages rely heavily on activating their shield during casting so as not to be interrupted (you can use the shield mid cast without interrupting the spell) one thing Mages dont need is agility, due to the fact that they wont be running much or dodging attacks.
Definitely stack Luminosity to reduce magic shield activation cost and cooldown and Knowledge to reduce mental deficiency.
Guys help me, I have a big problem.
I just finished Lancemaster Siebold's quest in the glacial swamp, but he still refuses to give me the Ethereal Maiden's Ring.
I really need it for my necromancer build.
Did I miss something?
I had to kill the tri-headed cockatrice in the Demon Temple, right?
No, you got it wrong. The tri-headed cockatrice isn't enough, you actually have to kill the Last Summoner, once you've done that you show the soul to Siebold and he'll give it to you.
That patch isn't out in Europe yet.
Behind the Cockatrice nest there is a tile on the ground, step on it and you'll fall into the Black Hollow, go to the bottom and there will be a Silver Dragoon, talk to him and get his sword and trade it for the Ethereal Maiden Ring
>stack knowledge to reduce mental deficiency
You probably logged to a bugged server. I'd clear the game files and download the current patch again, otherwise you won't be able to PvPvPvPvPvP on the current system.
What? What is dark souls? linK?
I'm nearly done with the new content from this patch already though. I spent most of yesterday playing through it - I don't want to lose my progress.
And here I was wondering why the wiki didn't have any info yet
What the fuck? The Black Hollow is blocked by the Demon Summoners' spell for me, how am I supposed to remove it?
I even killed two of them, but nothing happened.
By the way, the Cockatrice dropped the egg for me, but I traded it with Witch Selene (my waifu do not touch) for the Northern Shield. I didn't fuck up, right?
If you've seen the concept art for the hat and how it's supposed to look like worn, you wouldn't know how to put it on your head either. Just level up and don't worry about semantics.
Oh shit, good thing you got the northern shield.
Equip it in your right hand and Dual Stance it, then press r2, it'll dispel the the Demon Summoners' Fogwall. Read the Item descriptions, dingus.
She's the only NPC who wants it. Enjoy the shield,
but don't get too attached to your waifu.
This is the funniest fucking thread I have seen today.
Other than that, I have been matchmaking using the Dark Mage class and just recently pristiged to level 70, how do I beat Roth and get the light demon sword +6?
Equip it and walk into the lake outside of Burmen's Village, and then QUICKLY go to the blacksmith and put it on the Black Steel path, it'll actually upgrade into the Dark Warrior Straight Sword, which is incredible
>beat DaS for the first time recently
>still have no clue how ascension or weapon upgrades outside of +1 work
>have shitloads of titanite that I never use
Its DeS all over for me where I ended the game with the vanilla Penetrator
One of these days I'll figure it out
Hey it's not my fault, I still have to unlock the descriptions. Obtaining points is hard these days. Thanks for the tips btw.
>check out King's Field wiki
>"Burmen blacksmith drops Leviathan Greatsword if you have pure black karma"
>kill him immediately
>get cursed, can't enter Burmen Village anymore
>blacksmith doesn't even drop the sword
Dude, fuck the wiki. Who the hell writes this shit?
>Hey it's not my fault, I still have to unlock the descriptions. Obtaining points is hard these days. Thanks for the tips btw.
You know you can take items to Gale Village and the mystic there will read item descriptions for you, right?
I finally got my Invisible Dancing Morning Star to +32 yesterday, but my Festooned Pavise is only +12. Where do you go to grind cardboard enhance material? All of the cardboard golems disappeared from the level.
Meet me near the humidity giants if you wanna fight me btw, I have my Rabbit Punch spell at level LXIX
Dude, level up finesse. Weapon stance blocks are better against katanas than shields because you can parry them and get a hit in. It also helps that pretty much every weapon has a stance that can parry, even weapons like the Doublesoldier's Doublehander. DD is really underrated, people don't care that its moveset changes from brute to swordmaster when you get high enough finesse, giving you the ability to strike fast from afar and have some sick parry range too.
I recently started a Menhir Paladin build, but I can't adapt to the playstyle at all. I don't even know how much magicka is required to activate his special armor effect.
Wyrmslayer is still the best.
I've been playing a Drakekin Ghostmage, personally. The DK fire damage buff combined with the GM cold attacks makes me a fucking elemental master. Plus, using the Spirit Walk spell you get from the Crimson Spire to get behind guys and then fireblasting them is 2satisfying.
I haven't played DaS2 yet, but from what I hear the virtility builds with backhand chaos-split weapons is completely trash now. If so, I'd be really disappointed because that was my favorite build in DaS1 and DeS.
Holy shit dude, Spirit Walk is a BLAST.
If you join the Divine Guardian covenant and invade Floating Castle you're basically invincible, never received so many curse marks in my life.
Favorite boss, go.
>Goldnhart the Traitor
>yfw you did 1 damage to him, even when you have top-tier shit, stun him, and/or send him flying
>yfw things look hopeless
>yfw you realize

Blind Archer Seph is definitely a runner up, though.
I know this makes me sound like a faggot, but I really look forward to GanonGames' lore videos. I'm interested to see what he'll make of the Lair of the Red Goblin DLC, especially in regards to Yertheras the Undying.
Definitely the Avatar of Dissent for me. When you get him to half-health and he stops flying and duels you with a rapier is so cool, and I love how you can drop the chandeliers.
Goldnhart was a lot of fun the first time, but if you know the gimmick it's not challenging at all.
Nothing to say about Seph tho, 10/10 boss fight and the lore made me genuinely cry.
that scene where he talks to lady Helewis for the last time ;_;
In terms of gameplay, my favorite boss is the Demonic Leviathan, dodging his ice beam was very fucking hard, but cutting his head was one of the greatest parts in the game.
Phantom Knight Aethus is easily my favorite.
I loved how the first time you fight him, he and all of his adds are ghosts. Coming back later with the Ring of Rebirth was amazing, and the Phantom Blade he drops fucking decimates everything
>being a drakekin yourself
I'm glad there are other drakekin players out there! And, yeah, it's also great when after you finish raiding the Keep, Eighnor tells you his true reason for being in the land.
Do you have the Frozen Scissors of Agatha? That makes it a lot easier.
Seph's rise to fame was the best lore, though. Nothing quite like a rag-tag militia taking on an elite invading force and winning. Shame, though, how those who rise must also fall.
It's not over yet, faggots. Got this bit of dialogue at 20 souls.
No, I'm starting to doubt you've ever played the game
It's pretty obvious they will anyways. So far we've had a miracle/lightning, a pyromancy/fire and a magic/ice focused DLC. Time for shit to get dark and for you to get cursed,
that is unless you got them crowns brah.
So I've managed to find the Earthstone, and I heard that you have to replace it it in the temple beneath the fortress to help the lurkers. But there's no prompt for me to do so, and just dropping it there doesn't do anything. Do I have to talk with an NPC or is giving the Earthstone back to General Roth the only way to end the quest?
step aside, monsoon, you ain't got nothing on kurt
>image dictates the topic
now I understand it's not always a good idea to post an image that's unrelated, but the screenshot system is fucked so it's hard not to
The only friendly NPC who died is Felious the necromancer, and I'm pretty sure that it was scripted. I'm not to worried about them since his skeleton buddy can still teach you all of his spells. Where can I find Larry?
I'm not on best terms with the lurkers since I attacked the friendly ones thinking they were the same as the feral lurkers. The whole reason I want to give them the Earthstone is to patch things up with that faction.
what's the best elixor in that you can get before defeating gallant skikellantor? is it possible to trick santornik to give you his lesser seraph potion?
you sure you played the right game?
Yeah, I'm surpised, too! I guess they care about the Lurker content after all.
>Where can I find Larry?
Larry should be in the Windy Hovel. And since the Lurkers don't like you at the moment, that'd be the next best place to go with it. Don't worry, it should help make them like you again!
Post yfw you found the treasure at the top of the Archwizards Tower.
Larry is a semi-hidden NPC located under a false floor in the Cave of Confusing Hallway Placement. Upon entering the cave take the first 7 left turns, then turn right. A portion of the floor in this room is very subtly off-white in color. Use the Ring of Nonsense to reveal a staircase. Larry will be waiting for you at the bottom. MAKE SURE YOU DON'T HAVE A TORCH EQUIPPED, he will attack you if you do.
from the Wiki
>duh look at us guys we're arguing over the existence of a video game

odd how none of your links work either.
Apostle Adgar, but only if the Tablet of Vulcan Accord is still intact and the prompt for his arena is "Traverse the Ash Cloud Gate" instead of "Enter the pale mist" like the other signatory bosses.
Fucker just got up off his throne, shrugged an entire Mechanist's Crossbow+ salvo walking to me, then countered my first swing with a exploding fell-light orb conjured along its arc which sent me flying across the room. Radical
Beast SkeletonAdgar is fun in his own way too, but then so is fighting something out of the opening cinematic and actually winning.
hahah, how long did it take you to photoshop that you fucking virgin lmao
So, you can't kill the demon at the end of level six? Do you have the magic arrows? Easy, here's what you do. Hide behind the boulder. When the demon comes out of the cave, shoot him three times with the magic arrows. Then his head will start to spin. Once that happens, you jump up on the boulder, you do a flying downward thrust with the sword of doom, and that's it - level six is done.
>thinking Composure damage is good after the newest patch
Bet you still use Wally Hammers too, grandpa.
Mineral Mage spotted, still butthurt that Sapphires got nerfed faggot?
Who do I give the Wilting Icepick Rose to? There was a trail of frosted-over grass in Archgiant's Rest (after the first area boss) and it led to a whole patch of IRs including the wilting one which I can't use.
Lancemaster Siebold was my first thought since Icepick Roses are only meant to drop in the Glacial Swamp, but ever since I defeated the Cockatrice that he wouldn't shut up about he's gone from his training ground.
>Bet you still use Wally Hammers too, grandpa.
I roll with Dampbuffed Iron Mitten + Electric Throwing Forks, actually noob, but you wouldn't know about that having only picked up the game yesterday, right?
I don't really want to spoil any major plot points for you, so I'll just say that if you have a favorite NPC, make sure they end up having it before you leave for Smogold's Keep. It's not too important in terms of unlocking gear or anything, just some story bits you get to choose.
>giving your rose to the only loli in the game
Holy shit, I just tried cospvp with a Nine knight build. From is fucking crazy, you don't even have to mix and match to get the most OP shit, they made it into a single set. Who the fuck thought it was a good idea to eliminate stamina usage when wearing the full set? I'm just dashing left right and center, and this fucking Red Light Sword and Explosive Crossbow combo, holy shit. It's hard to get myself hit, even if I try.
Does anybody know where to get the demon slayers song of releasing fury? I need it to kill the orange phantoms inside the gear golem.
Lord Gottfired collects Wilting Icepick items, if you give him the rose and hellebore he will convert your mana powers in divine damage converter, but you can give it to a lot of characters for different effects.
I would suggest to to keep it until you reach the great midnight forest, and drop it on King Grifon's grave.
I don't want to spoil it's effect for you, but I'll give you a hint:
It has something to do with the Blood Oracle.
So I found the Sparrow of Medulse and left precisely 12 lumbering fire trudges on the corpse of Esmeralda of Plinkage, followed the whispy ghost to the Garden of Turnips, but the QTE cutscene with
Gorlok the Pillagerdidn't appear, help?
the story in this game is AMAZING
Because the framerate is higher your run out of i-frames given to you for the cinematic before the cutscene finishes, meaning the toxin aura kills you before the fight starts as it also ticks like 10x faster than it should.
>actually took the time to edit all that
bravo, I guess.
How in the fuck am I supposed to beat the Librarian's Abominations? Every time I get them to half health they spawn like 20 shadow dancers, this is fucking rigged.
And no I'm not summoning Gregor the Bard, I'm not a casual.

using the power attack of the Porcelain Spear
That spear is the most beautiful weapon I have ever seen.
If you manage to beat the Jörmungandr without damaging the ship, Blood Oracle will reach the dwarven city.
At this point talk to her, and if you dropped the rose on the King's Grave, enjoy the secret quest and reward...
You mean that smouldering castle I can see from Broghtown, where everyone talks about the High Flamefiend living there like he could come down at any minute and incinerate everyone living in the town?
Don't fucking tell me that's going to happen, I like it here. The elder isn't the Demon King in disguise or something, he's just a sellsword who lived to retirement and has a jolly disposition. Nobody ends their dialogue with crazed laughter and the biggest quest in town is helping raise a barn for Mother Mollis. It's like all the batshit insanity in every other area doesn't exist.
it's a duet and so needs a second voice, since Demon Slayers always worked in pairs. Find a phantom who had something to do with the old Demon Slayer order, begin reciting Amatria's Lament and they'll chime in with their own voice, activating Demon Slayer's Song of Releasing Fury.
fuck i didn't siphon the boss spirit from Gardenkeeper Clodhopper to make my +10 pitchfork to Trident of Atlantis

Yet. Captcha: undefiled sonssto
Well at least we were able to make it 300 posts this time before someone brought up that abortion
You could always grind XP to level up crafting and then make molotovs.
This is like the only part of the game they are even viable, but you need either that or pyrotechnics to beat the golems.
The Black Shine is such a cool looking Mobile Suit
Sair Otra's big reveal as a traitor would've been cooler if it hadn't been so obvious the whole time. At least he drops the Otra Ancestral Dagger which is great for critical prong damage.
what would be the point? the classes would have to be different enough to encourage using them and some areas that are designed for certain races would be shit for others. I love the fact that you can start with any class and end with any other one
Half Giants. Tieflings are okay too, especially if you get a decent horn growth gene so you don't have to spend shit on weapons, but Half Giants get the ability to have anything as a set of armor, thanks to that godly yet criminally underrated smith.
It's like you want to get purged or something.
So how is everybody finding the PVP after te patch?
Because jesus, it's fucking broken.
Every time I walk through the Arcane Tower, some faggy rogue appears using the ruffian set, dagger of sorrow and grimy shield. The grimy shield has retarded defence against pretty much all status effects, so my blood mage's spells are instantly ruined, and the dagger of sorrow is the spammiest weapon in the game.
>Fast as shit hit rate
>Retarded "sorrow" effect that halves your damage
>That retarded sobbing noise it makes as it hits you
Plus they move fast as fuck because of the speedboost from the ruffian set.
As much as I'm excited that Minayakzi is finally leaving, I just can't get over the fact that they added fucking muskets. Really?
I'm not saying take an existing game and have the option to be an Ork. It could be cool if there was a game built with that in mind though.
I do agree that being able to start as one class and end up as another is great but I like the idea of picking say an Ork and being a 7 foot mountain of green muscle and having unique attack animations etc or being an Elf and being superior with a bow or magic and having unique abilities for that race.
I'm not saying it would be perfect, it could just be pretty cool.
I invade Archwizard's Tower.
>MFW no one knows how to counter the Antimage's Dueling Shield and they have to climb all the way back up
To be fair the patch was needed, half-giants using a great hammer were OP as fuck; you could one shot most people with the right build and they were so fast that one mistake against one means you're dead. You pretty much have to use a tower shield now because they're too slow to take anyone by surprise, it's much more balanced but it's a lot more boring.
what if you decide that you want to switch your playstyle? start over? I guess I just don't like the idea
Enjoy your one fucking language
Without knowing Hillspeak (which literally EVERY other race can speak) you can't get the starshine scimitar from the Ork blacksmith in Kar'kath village
>inb4 jelly humanfags who say strahine scimmy is spam
I think it depends on a game by game basis. There are games where I think being able to switch your playstyle on the fly is good and there are others where I think having a strict class system might work better.
I just like the idea of different classes/races being completely different to one another.
bullshit, if you get the Rite of Runing you can translate anything in the game... sure, you're limited to using basic sign language and drawing pictures on the second screen to communicate but you can still getting most things done. being human doesnt have to be a chore and it's worth it for the starting present alone.
I don't hate you, anon. I love you, and I love your fanmail. Pic somewhat related, someone called me a microhitler once.
I use an Antimage's Dueling Shield. Sure, sometimes I push them into pitfalls, sometimes I knock them out the window, but usually I block and parry everything and frontstab them.
Well fuck me, I had two pics I wanted to show. Here's the elaboration on microhitler.
So we're all in agreement that Glenn is the most difficult final boss in all of video games, right? I even tried countering him, but he's one of the few bosses in the game where that shit doesn't fly.
Hey man, similar shit was said about their last game, and then Poised to Kill edition happened.
Granted this is a completely different set of circumstances, but I say let the serfs dream.
Dude, you should try the remove-helmets mod.
You'll have pleasant surprise about Glenn and the Storm Knights.
well what else is better? it may be a shit starting set but it saves you a few minutes sprinting to the palace of painful sunlight to pick up the golden set or whatever its called. minmax your time, sprunklord.
Bards need a nerf im sick of these casuals being able to one shot me.
That, and any weapons imbued with heat will get a buff. For Monk that's usually shit like the Ashen Caestus and few boss spirit weapons. Other than that, it's useless.
>having 40 Lifting
what the fuck were they thinking making Lord of the Apes the first boss? Fucker is nearly impossible for me, no other bosses give me nearly as much trouble. or is the enchanted jungle not the first area you're supposed to go to?
Honestly, how many of you guys finished KFIV without checking out DarkSydeFlint's 120% playthrough?
>complaining about Whalers when Mineral Magicians just got buffed
Firepit Crossing, maximum relax mode
You're doing it wrong anon. Cast buff reflect on yourself and then cast your debuffs on yourself too. There's currently a bug that makes reflected buffs undispellable. Although that doesn't help so much for berserker specc'ed warriors
Oh it definitely helps but I still think the best way of dealing with warriors is the tried and true method of getting the Wolfs Paw Set from Arian the Betrayer in The Den and simply waiting til the Warrior hits you. The first hit he lands on you will stun him giving you more than enough time to cast your blood poison spells.

I'm glad ToSoft added the easy mode, Seph doesn't even fight you, he just lets you cruise on by after commenting that you remind him of his love.
no he's super easy if you don't deflect him. that enrages him and is what makes him seem so hard. only a noob wouldn't know that
fuck off back to your (NO)Gamesphere
I bet you rolled a Kobold Friar too
OP here, thanks guys, that post in the middle really helped me get past the eternal hounds, but I fell in a void pit later on (I looked away from the screen for a second, fucking idiot) so I now have to make it through The Torn Heavens so that will be a real bitch.
np op, I was so happy when I got past them too
oh, you chose the ezmode class. I bet you also 'found' the serpent greatrapier? I bet you looked up the entire game then
>tfw beat Wintermask Ascendant on my first try
How many of the people posting in this thread have actually played King's Field IV on the PS2? How many even actually knew about the damn thing? I want a real KF thread with all this attention.
don't mind him anon, he just mad that it's too hard for him. I'm just glad that this and every other community agrees and respects that this is the hardest game series ever made by estonians
Anon, do you have that little faith in me? I simply explored every area thoroughly. The Treasure-Seeker's Bracers helped a lot, too, but most of it was just clever thinking on my part.
Indignant Cleric Eldric, it was surprising to see a caster also use strong melee attacks.
>mfw I got the Banishing Stone from the Sapphire Servant during ng+ and exacted divine justice on his ass with a Paladin Searing Blade+10 in only 5 hits
fucking heretics, man
Squire Gonbaard died in the fight against the mole king.
I killed it but now I'm thinking about restarting from the last tavern, I don't want to miss the chalice and I heard it's quite good for Cryomancer.
>there are people on /v/ right now who are not hype as fuck for imminent GOTY
Jokes aside, I really wish a game like this existed. Dark souls combat with a shit ton of content, secrets, weapon, monsters and stuff to discuss. I love ds, but it just makes me crave a game like that
Still miffed that they took out half of the features that were in Stygian Spirits. What happened to hunting Nether Crabs to craft the Chitinous Armor? What about berserker stance and poise break blocks? What happened to the sacrifice system?
Then again that shit will probably be added in as DLC in a year or so.

Ok honestly fuck this game, I keep dieing from Marcus's hammer slam bullshit in the church of Arkiplier. I've even upgraded my staff of winds to 9+ and I still can't damage the fucker. Why do people even like this game?
>implying this casualized garbage could ever surpass Stygian Spirits
The Taurus Edmon fight is exactly like the first Edmon fight- just dodge backwards whenever he attacks, and go in when he does the leaping attack.
You just have to be careful of his charge, you have to dodge to the side for that, and you can't block it without a certain shield.
>That feel when hearing Treldor's speech after the marshall's troops amass near the hidden glass gate to Chrysantheum grove.
Literal tears, if you return to the battlefield afterwards you can still find his spear buried into a hill of soldier corpses.
You don't need to get the ring of forgiveness mate. I just used the wooden club of apathy and imbued it with a tearstone anklet to get a sorrowful stick.
If you anoint it in the merciful cavern's water it actually does nearly as much damage as the ring of forgiveness with none of the fetch quest bullshit.

Where is your online? Oh thats right it died with Windows Live. I'll be enjoying my polished graphics, superior matchmaking, and duel wielding while you guys run around in circles on your own.
