I cleared through it with a halberd

HEHEHEHEHEHEH

You're probably fat rolling like every person starting dark souls. Lower your weight and learn how to roll like a pro.
>>
>>322911919
There's a halberd right next to the steps out front of the parish you scrub.
>>
>>322912674
that's after the burg my friend
>>
>>322911316
I tried Darks Souls recently, got to Blightown, havent played game since... That shit is just obnoxious a fuck and i do not enjoy playing the game in that location
inb4 git gud
>>
>>322912760
The boss is in lower undead burg, the key for that place is also right next to the Halberd.

Get Fucked.
>>
>>322912862
the boss of undead burg is taurus demon, and OP never mentioned lower undead burg so yeah ummmhh calm down?
>>
>>322911919
uhh?

>gate behind armored boar
>ledge above the switch
>>
>>322912805
That's rather the point of the place, you might as well complain that the locals in Phobos Station aren't very friendly.

Git determined.
>>
>>322912805
just killed the spider at the bottom of blight
which I one shot, if anyone is curious
the only thing obnoxious in that area or anything I've played of it so far is the hit box on those fucking wasps / maggots.
>>
>>322912805
blighttown can be bypassed, you only need to kill the boss, everything else in blight doesn't matter.

Hoof it to the bonfire in the sewer(?) tunnel, light it, then hoof it to the boss
>>
>>322912967
wait so he's literally having trouble before the tarus demon?
holy git gud that's precious.
>>
>>322913162
The place is confusing as fuck, the fuckin wasp faggots are so hard to hit for unknown reason, those tiny midgets that shoot those poisonous darts or whatevs... Me no like

>>322913316
Really? Well, might try it then, when i get my controller back

>>
>>322913092
>I can't distinguish undead burg from lower undead burg send help
>>
>>322913396
The boss isn't easy however, definately recommend a couple of summons

Also yeah the place is really confusing, best advice I can give you is to just keep heading down, eventually you'll come to a wooden structure that has like 5 of those weird fire-breathing things and down the bottom to the right will be the bonfire.

As I said though, easiest way through is to just sprint past everything
>>
>>322913162
How do you people have so much humanity? I just beat smough and ornstein and I walk around human form with 0 humanity, do you just pop every humanity you find? I get it that it increases item find but idk.
>>
>>322913389
this.

literally everyone thought he meant Capra Demon
>>
>>322911316
Taurus Demon
>after it makes its entrance, IMMEDIATELY run back towards where you came from and to the left will be a ladder, climb that bitch quickly, then when the Taurus Demon is underneath the ledge, do the falling attack you should've learned from Asylum Demon
>That'll take a large chunk of its health away
>Now you just have to roll, I always rolled towards him (aim for the gap between his legs)

You're going to fucking hate the Drake, I hope you chose the masterkey

>falling attack from Asylum Demon
I saw a webbum of a guy drop 20 feet onto a ledge and die so I just stood on the balcony and then the Asylum Demon smashed it to shit but I didn't fall onto his head

Artificial difficulty
>>
>>322914959
git gud
>>
>>322914959
if you could beat the ASSylum Demon without a plunge attack then you can beat the Taurus Demon without a plunge attack
>>
>>322915384
nah not really, taurus demon got some pretty tight roll timings for a beginner
>>
>>322914508
Drake is optional with or without the master key
>>
>>322915479
A lot of newbies tend to get stuck on that part though and don't know where to go or what to do
>>
>>322912805
If you take the master key you can literally clear Blighttown in 5 minutes(including boss fight). You only really need to kill the mosqutios as you get down the ladders, then break to the left and look for a tunnel with a bonfire inside. Then you can exit to the right run through all the crap, literally skip every enemy and be at the boss fight in less than a minute. It's probably the shortest dungeon in any Souls game.
>>
>>322914508
Is the drake even worth fighting?
What does he drop?
>>
>>322916439
absolutely fucking nothing, don't fight it, just cut the tail
>>
>>322916510
You dont have to properly fight it. If you have 50 arrows you can plink it from the top of the stairs and when he takes off to land on the bridge to roast you just run up and hit his head once then sprint back down the stairs.

He flies away and perches on the building again and you can just rinse and repeat.
>>
>>322915869
>then break to the left and look for a tunnel with a bonfire inside
did you guys not enter blight town through the sewers? past that merchant, who is before the gaping demon?
>>
>>322911919
It's easy. Pass the Valley of the Drakes, use the elevator to Darkroot Basin and get the halberd in the Undead Parish.

You get some humanity now and then from killing enemies. And the guy in the pic is a sunbro so he gets humanity from defeating bosses in co-op. And as you get better at the game you'll start getting better at recovering your bloodstain, humanity included, so you won't really lose what you've accumulated.
>>
>>322918043
I did because I didn't take the master key on my first playthrough as I didn't want to skip anything
>>
>>322911919
Sorry for your idiocy.

>>322918043

Most probably did, but any advice given in a Dark Souls thread are going to be given by dicks.

kek wait until blighttown with all the bullshit edges you can fall off
Catacombs was the worst for me though

Should you level up both STR and DEX or just one or the other?
>>
Anyone know if a bow or crossbow run is viable in DS2? I used one for a bit in the dlc on my first playthrough and it seemed easier to use than in 1. Might go for bows after I finish my sorcerer run if it's not too shit.
>>
>>322919279
Depends on your weapon choice but you should get both up to a certain level anyway.
>>
>>322919279
Just one
>>
>>322919279
Depends on what weapon you want to use? If you want to go with a Quality build its typically 27 STR and 40 DEX
>>
>>322911316

How is there artificial difficulty if I can beat undead burg on my first try on a brand new playthrough every time? You just need to improve your skills.
>>
>>322918631
>>322919083
i hadn't even noticed the other way down there. I mean I kinda did but I didn't poke around a lot 'cause I wanted to see what was in that giant spike pile lookin' thing.

>advice given by dicks
the charm of "try jumping" still hasn't worn off.
>>
I just installed the game and mods for the first time and killed the demon thingy and got his weapon.

but it says I need like 45str to use. Is it worth leveling that to use the weapon, or should I just dump everything into VIT, STR and DEX
>>
>>322919279

Yeah I can how that can be infuriatingly difficult.
>>
>>322919657
I killed a black knight and got his sword, but I have insufficient stats to wield it effectively
>>
>>322919754
Hang onto it until you can get enough STR to twohand it before you decide on a definitive build

>>322919891
Same thing, but Black Knight weapons are typically good if you got it in Undead Burg its a great weapon to use especially against the Taurus and Capra Demons
>>
>>322919891
Black Knight Sword will get you very far in the game.

Wield it with 2 hands as soon as you have 2/3 of the required STR. It can kill the Taurus Demon in 5 R1 hits, making it completely OP at the start of the game if you get it as a drop.
>>
>>322919279

If you like strength weapons I think 12 or 16 dex is enough to use most strength weapons. I forget the exact number. For dex weapons I believe 24 strength is the highest you'll ever need but that's only for a handful of weapons, like the murakumo, dragonslayer spear and the gravelord sword.
>>
>>322920470
Need 18 DEX for Black Knight weapons
>>
>>322919754

There are better options. The great club does comparable damage, is a lot lighter and require less strength. If you're OK with fatrolling you can use the demon hammer but I'd advise to always be at at least medium roll.
>>
Pls dear /v/, help, I fell for the Silver Knight Straight Sword meme, what's a better weapon than this shit for PVE? Side note i've already finished the game with Large Club, shit was piss easy, and with BKS.
>>
>>322920650

Ah, that's right. I forgot about those. I pretty much never build for the black knight weapons because they're so unreliable to get before end game.

BKGS
>>
>>322919279
strength if you like to play the game on easy mode.
Dex if you want to beat the game with the skill of a patrician.

Or just cuck your shit up and go casual and become a magic man.
>>
>>322920905
You just got the wrong Silver Knight weapon, the SK Spear is the best one
>>
>>322920905

Could use the great scythe.
>>
>>322921514
ok i will try that then, thks

What are the main stats to dump into. I know the guide /vg/ posts like mad says vit, but is it right?
Like, I have no clue what to focus on.
>>
>>322921354
>dex faggotry
I like that it takes twice as long to kill Capra with a Baldur Side Sword than it does with the starting Battle Axe

Fucking delusional dex faggots

If you say so my casual friend

>>322922095
END over 40 is typically a waste unless you're going with some heavy weapon + heavy armor shit and want to mid-roll
>>
>>322921847
Get like 20 strength and 18 dex to try out a larger assortment of weapons maybe. Endurance to wear heavier armor/use heavier weapons and put a few points in vit too. just dont get resistance.

Also keep in mind upgrading your weapons/shield is much more important than leveling up.
>>
>>322921847

Vit and end are always good. Until you get to 40 in both any points invested there aren't wasted. As for dex and str, find out which type of weapon you prefer and then meet the minimum requirements for the weak stat and pump out the main stat. 40 is once again the soft cap but some str weapons require 50 or even more to one hand. It isn't necessarily a good idea to go that high but it's up to you.
Sorcery is really strong and requires both int and attunement. If you want to have it as your main combat style you'll require quite a bit of both. Faith isn't really viable as a main source of damage unless you're using one of the buff spells. I tend to leave it at 30 if I'm doing a faith build. That doesn't make it very powerful but it's enough to benefit you and allows you to use most miracles.
>>
>>322919145
if just having to kill necromancers to keep things dead drives u mad, baldurs gate would make u insane
>>
>>322919413
you can cheese everything in DS2 by going bow.

i literally beat freyja by walking in circles shooting arrows at its face, while all it did was spam laser and the spider adds AI is so bad they didnt even try and attack me the whole fight
>>
>>322911316
git gud you fucking cuck

bait him on to the upper circular section
>>
>>322914053
>The boss isn't easy however
Quelaag? She isn't that hard once you know to stick by her back legs and to run away from her AOE attacks, but I've done runs where she did those once the whole fight
>>
>>322919279
go 27/40 str/dex

use almost every weapon with a standard upgrade path in the game

two hand for a 1.5x bonus to strength, statistically giving you 40/40 str/dex
>>
>>322922207
in pvp, most builds will go mid 50s in endurance so that they can have 32 poise, a fast roll and a ring slot open for anything they want

going over 40 endurance is never a waste
>>
>>322921847
vit to 44 - 50
end to 40+

pick one primary damage stat and one secondary damage stat or throw bonus points into att/end

if the secondary stat is...
str = stop at 27
fai = stop at 30
int = stop at 32

dex is usually most useful at 40 or 45 if you want maximum cast speed
>>
>>322913246
You think you know what a spider is ?
