Dark Souls thread!

I did it /v/

It took me only 7 hours and 40 minutes.
>>
Noice. Did you use summons?
>>
>>322351557
Only Solaire of Astora for first phase to separate Pikachu and Snorlax. Second phase was face to face.

Good job anon. Now everything will be a chore because the game gets boring after O&S

I had to summon Solaire of Astora to beat the Bell Gargoyles

If your first playthrough of a souls games isn't melee only with no summons you've done nothing but ruin the experience for yourself.
>>
>>322352241
damn son I think there was a malfunction during new year's eve cause it seems we're back in 2011
>>
>>322351749
I don't get this. The catacombs+tomb of the giants, and dukes archives are great., this only applies to Lost Izalith, and I guess maybe new Londo.
>>
Reminder that if your first playthrough of a new Souls game isn't Offline with no summons, you're a fucking pleb and should stop gaming immediately.
>>
>>322352232

>self-imposed challenges

You mean playing the game normally? Ok, whatever makes you feel better.

>>322352351

No you didn't. You just didn't persevere.
>>
>>322352554
crystal cave is utter bullshit, archives are still meh, tomb of giants is short and annoying, same for new londo, lost izalith is literally unfinished, the second half isn't worth a quarter of anything before the lordvessel, thank fuck for the DLC actually
>>
>>322352554

Tomb of the Giants is horseshit, Lost Izalith is tedious eye rape, the archives and crystal caves are boring as fuck. Nito and Seath are boring, and Bed of Chaos a shit.
>>
Playing it for the first time too, this game really is a good as /v/ said.

I'm at the garden/swamp place after the Gargoyles, any tips? The place is spooking me up.

Also, I'm currently using an Axe, reinforced it to +3. I also have the Gargoyle Tail Axe. Which is better? The normal great axe had more attack, even before reinforcing (which is why I went balls deep reinforcing it), but I'm not sure if there's something on the Gargoyle Tail Axe that I'm missing. It is a special weapon after all, my RPG instincts tell me I should use it. Opinions?

Also, I'm reinforcing my natural starting armor instead of buying newer ones. Am I doing it right? I've heard it was a good bet to just upgrade your starting equipment instead of chasing new shit.
>>

>any tips?

No.

>Which is better?

Use whatever you like. Really.
>>

Well ain't that a good sign.

>Use whatever you like. Really.

I tought/heard so, but it's good to have confirmation.
>>
>>322352969
don't upgrade equipment in ng it's not worth it, focus on weapons, also concentrate or the large titanite shards you find on just one weapon till you reach anor londo. Oh and don't even consider levelling resistance
>>
>>322353150
If you play on M+KB you can press delete twice to see item description. Some additional information is usually there that might you help decide.

Yo dude if you used summons on this or any fight you are a faggot.

This is my first playthough and I have been spending souls on levelling up resistance
>>
>>322352969
All axes are pretty great. Gargoyles on grants some handy resistance bonuses but its not as good in the damage or versatility departments. Golem axe is my personal favorite, which is a boss weapon.
>>

You're silly.

P-pretty sure I've already leveled Resistance. But okay, will stop for now. If you don't mind me asking though, why?

>>322353275
Yeah, I've given it a read. But thanks anyways.

>>322353398
I see. Will keep an eye for it.

I also got the Zhewilhander of wathever, which is a sword, might switch to it when I have enough strenght, if it is one-handed, since it has a pretty strong attack. Anyways thanks for the tips.

because resistance is a useless stat, it raises your poison resistance slowly when you really can dodge most source of poison/make the stat skyrocket thanks to equipment if you need it

Dude get this weapon atleast on +10 and you will pancake everything in 2 hits.

Souls beginner here

What exactly is the point of reverse hollowing?
Is it worth the humanity even when you become hollow again after you die?
>>
>>322354184
when you're human you can summon phantoms, invade, and be invaded, this includes NPC invasions wich reward you with unique weapons you're going to lose if you beat the area boss before defeating said NPC. Also you have to be human to kindle bonfires
>>
>>322354184
Beginner here too, but from what I could gather:

You use Reverse Hollowing to become human and get access to the multiplayer. You will be able to summon people to help you out, but I think you also open up the chance of being invaded.

Being human is also necessary to Kindle bonfires, I think, which give you more Estus Flasks when you rest there.

>Is it worth the humanity even when you become hollow again after you die?


From what I've gathered, yes, but you need to use it strategically, since Humanity is rare.
>>
>>322354441
>Humanity is rare

Not exactly. Just get the Gold Serpent Ring from Sen's Funhouse and farm rats in Depths / blue slimes in Archives.
>>
>>322354642
idk about the others but I'd never go farm humanities in the depth before having the ability to teleport, it's painful af, and by the time you get the Lordvessel half the game has passed and you would have had multiple occasions to waste your humanities already, so yeah i'd say it's pretty rare.
>>
>>322354983
I had no other choice, I had to farm humanities to get past O&S so yeah, annoying but necessary.

>>322353641
Basically if you start getting boss souls, save them up for a special black smith that can craft weapons from those souls. I think you have to select "modify" to view boss weapons when you meet that black smith.

He can turn any +10 Axe into the Golem Axe, which is costly to upgrade but has a great moveset including a projectile at the cost of weapon durablity.

The Zweihander is considered the Noob Stick of the game, but that's because it's a fan-fucking-tastic weapon. Never bother with it for PvP, but PvE it's incredible. Its R2 attack has a high chance of staggering enemies, even major bosses.
>>
>>322355428
If you summon people you have to support them. Let them take on the boss but keep an eye on them, make sure to pull the boss if they're struggling, and heal them when possible.

Anyway, rats have a high chance of dropping Humanity. Use the Gold Serpent ring to farm the depths for it.

Solaire is placebo, he will just make it harder from the point he dies (because he does)
