So what do you guys think is the best time to start the old hunters dlc?

I just got to Yar'gul and figure I sould do it soon before I get too much further.

Also Bloodborne thread

>>323115236
Fuck that was a great boss fight.
But yeah fuck those snakes, I start sweating when I get them to low health.
>>
The recommendation is at around level 60, so probably about the time you're either fighting or have beaten The One Reborn
>>
>>323114609
This is what I did
>get to mensis, stop before the wet nurse
>grind a few levels because I'm a huge coward, amd to be able to equip mpst of the new weapons

>>
>>323115951

No

>>323115709
Did that with dark souls, Artorias made my asshole 3 times bigger. Definitely not doin that with bloodborne
>>

Should I overlevel the fuck out of my hunter for the final chalice? I'm just missing the Yharnam trophy and I'm getting my shit pushed in real hard in the cursed chalice. Should I start to grind levels like a madman? Chalices are so boring. Currently BL140 or so
>>
>>323116710
You're already overlevelled, I don't know what more is going to do for you.
>>
A +10 weapon is really nice if you're on NG--I can't imagine fighting the first DLC boss blind without it. I recommend starting the DLC before killing Mergo's Wet Nurse, but after getting the Blood Rock; otherwise you'll miss some extra dialogue with the Doll and Gehrman.
>>
>>323116710
>BL140
You're already way overleveled bro.

I hear people start the Old Hunter DLC ASAP to do special builds with the new weapons

>>323115961
Just beat him right now, I'll be Hittin up the dlc soon.

>>323116956
Thanks anon. I hate missing stuff like that.

Anybody else find the one reborn to be easy as fuck? I just beat him first try and I don't think I've ever done that In a souls game
>>
>>323118638
Plenty of weapons you can obtain early on in the dlc without having to do much killing.
>>
> do dlc when it's available at level 30
>turn 360 degrees and walk away when I get to ludwig

Why is this shit open this early? Imagine someone buying the goty edition not knowing what they're getting into
>>
>>323118927
Probably so you can get weapons earlier on.
>>
>>323118927
But that's part of the fun.

What level are you supposed to be when fighting Amelia? And Should I go kill the Blood Starved beast first or after her? Is the Hunter's Axe a good weapon?
>>
There is no leeway with this fucking game, is there?
>>
>>323117176
Just summon help for the cursed ones if that's what you're stuck on. Cursed chalice is cheap horseshit. There's no shame in it.
>>
>>323119651
Just gitting gud.
>>
>>323115961
what the fuck

im level 90 and i just beat the shadow of yharnam, am i over-leveled?
>>
>>323119312
I'd say somewhere around BL25-30 for most people. I kill BSB first so I can get the memeblade, but it really doesn't matter. Axe is more than capable of taking you through the entire game if you wanted, though I find it a bit slow.
>>
>>323119948
Yes, by probably 40-50 levels I'd say. Most people are around your level when they beat NG.
>>
>>323119953
>Level 31
>just remember I accidentally sold all my healing pots
Welp, I'm gonna try out the Saw Spear and git gud.

Is the stat priority health>stamina>skill=strength>everything else if I'm more melee focused?
>>
>>323120292
I'd put stamina lower, but that's really just a matter of preference.
>>

How does armor work in BB? Do I have to look like an asshole and wear that hat all the time or can I put something else on? Is there actual, like, metal armor in the game or is it a leather-fest-only thing? Are there greatswords?
>>
>>323120292
I find 15 stam is plenty for the entire game. I tend to level either str or dex first depending on the weapon I'm using or plan to use. Doing more damage is more important since it's easy to regain health with rally and health with vials. Then I raise health after about 25 points in my damage stat.
>>
>>323120469
Father G > Bsb > Vicar Amelia > Forbidden Woods to get into clinic back door > Cainhurst

There ya go.
>>
>>323120605
As far as aesthetics go it's mainly just leathery flowing shit. As far as actual usefulness goes it is all useful, but only so much. If you're relying on your armor then you're doing it wrong.
>>
>>323120605
Light armor only.
>>
>>323120605
You remember how in dark souls armor had a certain weight value. Then that weight value and all the other shit you had would affect your roll speed.

Well that's gone in this game. Basically any armor you wear will either either be for looks or because it has certain stats. Some armor is good against pure physical others are good against arcane.

Yes there are great swords.
>>
>>323118814
Gotta do this next time I play the game.
>>
>>323120740
Kay so supposing I wanted to use the memesword or the burial blade or the DLC whip sword that would be str for the first and last and skill for the scythe? Which one of those would be better? I'd lake to use the Blades of mercy too but if I don't have reach I'd probably get my shit pushed in.
>>
>>323120450
Laurence annihilates everyone regardless of level. I found him to be the hardest boss in the game by far.

>>323120605
Armor is all leather
Theres one great-sword but you're pretty much limited to dex in terms of playstyle so you're better off using the Halberd (Hunters Axe)
>>
>>323120605
Don't worry it looks pretty good.

Pic related is my favorite.

Also do an STR build they're the most fun. Use Hammer/ Axe.

I used the Ludwig greatsword and the saw, but by the end of the game Axe + Hammer + Canon was the real fun.
>>
>>323121143
You should
>start ng
>Rush saif and butcher set
>invade cathedral ward closing the gates and cleansing the streets

It's pretty mean honestly, but at least I help with Amelia sometimes
>>
>>323120605
Cainhurst set is metal armor, thoughvery thin. Yes to being a leatherfest. Armor is almost irrelevant so just wear whatever you like, there are plenty of hats and I'm sure you'll findone you like. There are two greatswords, Ludwig's holy blade and Holy Sword of Moonlight in the dlc, the latter being much less boring and also being the only one-handed greatsword. But have an open mind, try something cool you can't do in dark souls as well. If you want to build for holy moonlight for example, you can also make use of the parasite and become a tentacle endowed exploding monstrosity.
>>
>>323121205
Memesword is quality, so str and dex give you about the same. BB scales with dex and arc to an extent. The beast cutter is str.

It really doesn't matter what armor you use. It's fashionsouls. Some sets like Henryk will have high lightning, which is useful for fights like Paarl. Djura set has high frenzy resistance, which is nice for winter lanterns.
>>
>>323121398
>skill weapon
you got a build for me?
I was doing a Skill/Bloodtinge run last time I played
>>
>>323121205
Skill for the scythe, str AND skill for the sword, and if you want burial blades with reach get the Rakuyo. It's a sabre and a short sword, instead of just two daggers.
>>
The only game that upset me more than Bloodborne is Splatoon.
>>
>>323121825
I mean I'm not one of those crazy stat planners but I'm gonna go 50 skill and 25 blood tinge for sure with at least 40 vit and maybe 20 end. Everything else will depend but I already made an arc/star build so I'll probably keep them at base level
>>
Start it when you get a +9 weapon.
>>
>>323119948
How the actual fuck did you level to 90 at shadows
I finish the game at level 85 or so everytime, and I never lose any souls on the way.
>>
>>323120450
Leave laurence till the end of the dlc. Its why you can take the eye out of his hand and leave

Though I did spam laser beams a lot.
>>
i got 36 vitality m8s did i do something wrong? and high strength, and 15 arcane.
>>
>>323114609

Level 45 is a good time to start the DLC

You should be able to complete it around the 60's then head back to the vanilla game and finish up into NG+
>>
>>323122587
i uh... was having too much fun in hypogean goal...
>>
>>323123079
is this your first time going through the game

looks like you're on your way to a str/arc build. high vitality is not a bad idea for a first timer, 50 VIT can make you not die in two hits.

I would say go 50VIT 30END 50 STR 50 ARC
>>
>>323123128
No but seriously, thats a lot of "fun"
The enemies there barely drop 1k a piece, and levelling to 90, you need something like 25k every level, and it increases all the time

what the fuck man

>>323122587
I leveled a fuck ton through Co-oping. And the stretch from Mergo's Loft Middle to Mergo's Wet Nurse is like 100k. With 3 guys it's short and quick.

I'm only level 58 in the forbidden woods, and that's thanks to doing a good deal of chalice dungeons. I still feel like I'm over-leveled.
>>
>>323123738
Right outside the lantern there are two pigs that drop 3.5k echos each and die super quick, so farming up to level 90 can take all of two hours if you spam them

>befriending that asshole

not only did he shoot my ass for doing my job, but he defends beasts. it's only a matter of time until they break though the barriers around Old Yahrnam and flood the rest of the city with the ash plague, combined with beast plague, which will spread to the world.

the beasts there are smarter than every other beast. they retain some sense of patterns and worship, as evidenced by them praising the crucified BSB with ritual blood.

they have to be killed.
