Just restarted the game, thinking about doing Skill Build, any early weapon recommendation?
Also, Bloodborne thread
>>
>>323240087
Blade of Mercy is nice, one of my fave weapons.
>>
Just bought this game. Do I need to buy the DLC right away or can I wait until I beat vanilla? Also should I go for a str build or dex build first?
>>
>>323240485
I've almost platinum'ed the game and I don't have to DLC.

Honestly increase vitality and endurance almost equally, maybe vitality in preference.

What I did my first run through was up strength to 25 and then skill to 25 and use Ludwig's Holy Blade when you get it.
>>
>>323240286
blades of mercy a shit. they have 0 range and cannot stagger bosses like literally any other weapon in the game can.
>>
Saw Spear, you wont be getting Blades of Mercy until after Rom at the earliest. Otherwise if you have the Old Hunters, you can make a rush for Rakuyo, but good luck with that early game.

Some of the Chalice Dungeons become quite the fucking pain with a skill build too, particularly Bloodletting Beast and Watchdog, you're basically forced to use the Saw Spear, Threaded Cane, or Burial Blade (Don't even get that until the end game) just to have some reach.
>>323240485
DLC opens up after Vicar Amelia boss early in the game, however if you wait until after you beat the game, you'll be doing the DLC on NG+, and that's not fun once you get to the last area of it, not fun at all.

Go with whatever build you want honestly. Strength, Skill, Arcane, Bloodtinge, they're all viable. Personally I played Strength builds in DeS, DaS1/2, and started with a Skill build for BB for once, and it's been really enjoyable, especially once I got the Blades of Mercy.
>>
why are all the fun weapons endgame

who designed this shit
>>
>>323241193
The evade R1 is GOAT. plus you can absolutely murder hunter enemies and most monsters.

Admittedly I use other weapons for bosses generally.
>>
>>323241159
If you increase endurance over 20ish you're wasting points.
>>
>>323241193
>Blades of Mercy can't stagger bosses

BoM is so fast it doesn't need to stagger and half the bosses it can stunlock them until you drain your stamina out and make up for the damage by tons.

BoM is broken as hell by how fast it is. Almost no enemy or boss in the game is going to be able to stop the amount of speed and damage output it can deal, barring a few Chalice Dungeon bosses and Orphan of Kos.
>>
>>323241331
Why do so many people use multiple melee weapons in this game? Do you enjoy farming blood chunks / rocks?
>>
>>323241460
I have 2 of them and I used 1 on Ludwig's and 1 on Blade of Mercy.

1 from Nightmare of Mensis and 1 from bath messenger for 60 Insight.
>>
>>323241457
That's the classing STR vs DEX debate.

Would you rather hit an enemy one time with a massive hammer for 100 damage, or hit him 6 times for 20 damage each, and run a higher risk of missing or getting hit back
>>
>>323241460
Most people farmed enough chunks to last a life time. There was a bug (don't know if it was removed), where you could go to Upper Cathedral, kill all the werewolves in there by going through the front, then immediately heading to the Emmissary Lunarium and a werewolf would be there, kill him, and he'd just respawn and you can sit there and farm him for hours for Twin Shards and Chunks (especially with the Eye runes).

Most people did that ages ago and farmed enough to level all the weapons they wanted, super easy.
>>
The Threaded Cane tends to be overlooked for PvE and it scales very well with skill.
The Beasthunter Saif can be obtained relatively early in the expansion and you don't really have to fight anyone if you just want to sprint for it.
>>
>>323241716
Usually, I'd agree. But BoM is so fast with it's hits and the damage difference is pretty nominal in most cases that it doesn't matter. Only weapon I've seen that outclasses everything else straight up is Ludwig's, Whirligig (but for different reasons), and Kos' broken as AOE weapon.

Normally I go for STR builds, but BoM just stunlocks so easily it's kind of sad.
>>
Saw Cleaver -> Saw Spear -> BoM -> Burial Blade -> Rakuyo

GOAT Skill weapon progression.
>>
Ok guys I'm thinking of starting my first arcane gem build. Can somebody briefly link or explain the deal with random chalice dungeons? I thought I heard somewhere that all you need to do is unlock isz chalice, and then you can get into any other level 5 dungeon too by fiddling with the password system

I recently got this game and the DLC. I get this different kind of feel playing this game than any other. Beat Cleric beast and Father C. No guides or anything the feels of discovery are like none other. Levelling str and vit so far both at 19 points and have thw kirkhammer(sp). Struggling through my mind to make mental maps and I love it.
>>

I did just that and it was 100% awesomecakes. Except I skipped saw spear and burial blade.

no

Nope. I think any build should start with the axe. Even Skill. Threaded Cane sucks until upgraded.

OP here, thank you for the recommendations, gonna start with Saw Spear than move to BoM later on, i hope i don't get fucked by some bosses later.

Rush through the early game, beat amelia, go into the dlc, and kill simon. You'll need a bit of bloodtinge but the bowblade is GOAT. It can carry you through the entire game or at least until you find a different weapon
>>
>>323240087
I made a skill build for the DLC, used cane until I got blades of mercy. The scythe is fun too but not as good as BoM. It's too bad the good skill weapons are so late in the DLC, you don't have much time to play around with them unless you like chalice dungeons or new game+ing.

Why does anyone like the cane?
It sucks shit
>>
>>323244009
It's not, just dodge towards instead of away, and realize that your dash/roll attack comes out super fast. The game's health system is very forgiving.
>>
Headless Bloodletting Beast feels like it wasn't tested at all. His hitboxes are Dark Souls 2 bad. I've fallen through the floor and respawned at Hunter's Dream at least half the time. Apparently everyone else can stay by his left leg no problem, but the moment I do, he just turns with me, same with his damage output, every vid I see, they take maybe 1/4 of their bar at best, but everything is taking half my hp almost, and some things just straight up one shot, my fully upgraded Ludwig's sword apparently does 200-400 less damage with fire paper than everyone else's.

Shit boss is shit, shame too, every other boss in this game has been one-shot besides Logarius, which I only died once.

Fire Paper, just wail on her. Also dodge towards her, most bosses are like that actually.
>>
Use the Saw Spear until Amelia then run through the Hunter's Nightmare to get the Beast Saif.
>>
>>323244279
Personally I think all of the monster bosses in this game are complete garbage.

Headless Bloodletting Beast is a shitty test of patience and you basically fight him like a DaS2 boss. Special mention to the second worst lock-on camera in the game which goes right up your character's asshole so you can't see anything.
>>
>>323240087
The cane, baby!
>>
>>323241460
The game throws enough chunks at you to fully upgrade at least two weapons. You can get a third to +9.
It'd be pointless to just carry a single weapon for the whole game when you can afford to try out at least two more.
>>
>>323244254
Why's he look like a methed out version of those things outside then?
>>
>>323244009
Its the latter. The game isn't necessarily harder than the other Souls games. Its just a different play style that you need get used to. Take it a bit more defensively, use your items more, and practice parrying and dodging through attacks. It may seem counter intuitive but its better to dodge into attack than away. But dont be afraid to be agressive. If your in a trade with an enemy, try attacking to recover health instead of trying to back away to use a vial
>>
Cane until Blades of Mercy or Scythe.

Cane is obscenely excellent for large groups of weaker enemies. It's practically cheating.

Scythe is good for stronger enemies and bosses. All around reliable weapon.

Blades of Mercy is arguably the best PvP weapon.
>>
>>323244615
So far I haven't had any problem with any of the bosses, but him. His hitboxes are absolutely ridiculous. I've been hit by his ground pound 10 feet behind him. I've been hit somehow by his magic head hitbox (pre-worm head thing), etc.

It's just a terribly designed boss, not Bed of Chaos mind you, but good lord, it's just a drain on my patience right now. I'm honestly about to just go spend a few hours farming chunks just so I can cheese him with the Bowblade.

If your DPS isn't high enough and you're not aggressive, she'll start to heal. Go up the ladder next to the gate to the right of the stairs leading to the Cathedral. You'll find 6 Numbing Mists up there that will leave her unable to heal if you hit her with one. Chuck one when she starts healing.

Also, use the fire paper Alfred gave you, and cripple her limbs like you did against the Cleric Beast.
>>
>>323244270

Upgraded, it can do impressive damage, and the whip form can hit the weak spots of tall enemies like macaroni face for damage and stagger.
>>
>>323244869
Kos' weapon is the best PvP weapon now, it one shots people straight up with the AOE.
>>
Alright, absolute scrub here, but does Arcane scaling only matter with gems or what? I've got a primarily Arcane build and levelled Ludwigs (seemed to be the only thing I had with decent Arcane scaling) and my damage feels packing. Do I need to chalice dungeon, or am I expecting too much damage? Even with my relatively low Skill, I feel like I get more DPS out of the Blades of Mercy.
>>
>>323242953
Hunter Axe is mai waifu
>>
>>323245101
Ludwig's scales with an equal of STR/DEX, Arcane does nothing for it unless you use Gems.
>>
So does arcane effect the kirkhammer at all? It scales B but the damage doesn't increase if I try putting a level In It
>>
>>323245101
Basing your early game around arcane is kinda stupid.
>>
>>323245101

Depending on where you are, gems don't really start dropping in the base game until the last third, earlier with the chalice dungeons.
>>
>>323245193
Everything has an attack that scales with Arcane, that's why it's there, but it's not worth it to dump points into Arcane for it. The only way to increase it is if you put Arcane scaling gems into it.
>>
>>323244270
The range on the cane's whip is insane, both in length and radius. The damage it does is shit and the wind up is long but weak enemies will die before they can reach you and you're usually at a safe distance against strong enemies. The regular cane is basically a very short sword which is good against enemies that are stronger and require quick reactions, like the trolls or kidnappers.

It's not my favorite weapon and the axe is a better starter weapon, but it's definitely got its uses. I would recommend it as the backup weapon of most SKL builds.

Stake Driver and Hunter's Axe are best weapons

Play Bloodborne as though you're more powerful than the enemy. Get aggressive, dodge toward rather than away, parry parry parry.

A lot of weapons have ARC scaling but no ARC attack.
The scaling is for the elemental gems. For something like Kirkhammer you're better off just keeping it pure STR, but for an arcane build you can change the damage to elemental and use the ARC scaling instead.
>>
>>323245253
Yeah I'm realizing that now, but I've trucked through to Nightmare of Mensis. Should I just start statting otherwise or should I go Gem hunting? If so, how do? I know they're primarily from Chalice dungeons but that's all.

anything over 20 is straight up wasteful

If Game design was a non-meme major, I think Bloodborne and Darksouls 2 would be perfect for teaching "how to and how not to make a sequel"

Problem: Backstabs are OP

Problem: Equip burden is too easy too mess with
>Dark Souls 2: "LET'S MAKE AN ENTIRE STAT, JUST FOR EQUIP BURDEN!!!"
>Bloodborne: Removed the concept of equip burden entirely

Problem: Shields are too OP
>Dark Souls 2: "LET'S MAKE SHIELD MASSIVELY NERFED IN GENERAL, ADD ENEMYS WITH SHIELD BREAKS, AND MAKE MOST SHIELDS HAVE SUB 100% PHYS RESISTANCE"

I don't even parry anymore. I save my bullets for weapon buffing and healing. Parrying is always going to be the most powerful attack but the risk is too great and it's less convenient to use my gun since I'm almost always using the two-handed axe or hammer.
>>

Weapons and dodging don't use a lot of stamina, and the recovery speed is good enough to stick with just 20.
>>
>>323245756
Because endurance isn't as useful. Heavier weapons will need a bit more, but on a light weapon you can go through the whole game without touching endurance at all.
Everything in BB uses less stamina because of the emphasis on dodging.

>>323248796
Defiled Amygdala is piss easy, just circle strafe towards the left across the outer edge of the room. When it does the ground pound, just run it with an R2 and then back dodge away and repeat. Long fight sure, but you wont ever get hit.

Headless though, I'm with the other guy, the hitboxes honestly feel so wonky. I've been hit across the room with the charge, I've been hit behind him, and then the Phase 2 head, he just flips his shit and it's impossible to get in on him without getting hit I find. Run in with an L2 or R2 overheard from Ludwig's sword, I just hit hit immediately after by the head, even if I dodge, the edge of the hitbox just hits me and I eat it. The charge ranges from nothing damage to a one shot.

It's an awful designed boss I feel. That and visceral attacking him is inconsistent as hell, sometimes it takes 3-4 hits sometimes you've almost got him dead without ever getting one no matter how fast and often you're hitting him.

I really don't suggest doing the DLC in NG+. Just kill Amelia and hit the DLC. A lot of great weapons. He can get the pizza cutter and Beast Saif before he has to face Ludwig.

That happened with the Crow Hunter at the end of Eileen's quest for me, started the fight and he just clipped right on through, went to talk to Eileen, got the badge, rezoned out and back in, went to check to see if I could fight him again, and nope. His item was there this time at least though, but I was pretty disappointed.

Oh I fully agree. DLC is fine on NG+ up to Maria, but the Fishing Hamlet becomes an absolute nightmare. Definitely don't do it on NG+, if only because of the Fishing Hamlet. I didn't know about it when I first bought the DLC, but boy...that was a rough one lets say that.

>>323244615
>Personally I think all of the monster bosses
Some of them are okay, but some of them just have lazily designed attack styles, yes. The ones that just sort of swipes their arms around non-stop in huge swinging arcs are just so boring to fight.

This game needs more mechanics to make up for the lack of shields and other things. As it stands, all you do is dodge through attacks and position yourself in some blind spot. Parrying is a good idea, but they should have added one or two more things to the game, then made a lot of the bosses have neat gimmicks.

Fights like Logarius and Pthumerian Descendent, where the bosses have unique attacks and do fun stuff, are so much more interesting than shits like Vicar Amelia and Paarl, who just flail around like retards. Cleric Beast gets a pass since it's the first boss in the game, but did we really need so many more generic arm-flailing beast bosses?

I could never get the hugging the left leg thing to work.

After just completing a beast claws run, let me give you would be clawfags some headsup. Keep in mind i dont have PSN and sadly cant pvp.

Its a shitty grind to grab these by level 50. Go saw spear, grab 40 Vit before anything to make life as easy as possible. Grinding Ritual Blood 4 is shitty but easier than doing lower Pthu chalice. Laurence is the last and hardest challenge along your way to beasthood. And....
Theyre shit. Honestly. Probably cuz i cant grind gems, but i realy dont prefer them to BLT weapons like Bloodletter and Weebkage. Claws are just week against a lot of bosses and fighting Laurence at lvl69 and 0 range is punishing (but youll be able to brag youve mastered that fucker and earned your rune legit). Plus side is they have a lot of damage if you can pull off the ramp up attacks and the swag is off the charts. Killing Rom in seconds as a dark beast was fun, too. Good luck to anyone retarded enough to go for the same early claw run I did.
>>
>>323251540
If you want to be sure, create the face, save it to favorites and make a run for the hunter attire in the sewers or buy the Yharnam Hunter Set. Even with a ponytail, the hair will still clip through the collar.

Ah, the Loran Chalice Dungeon. A neverending source of amusement.

Thankfully, the werewolves don't follow you if you run past them.

Honestly, I think that BB was actually TOO forgiving when it came to healing items.

Blood Vials should have been more scarce. Keep the prices scaling as it is in game. But have them be more scarce. That way, they become a more precious commodity and force people to get good.

It also forces people to ACTUALLY use the Rally mechanic.

>>323253631
>Dark Souls 2 has 100 times more healing items than any other Souls game

There's like 3-4 different types of lifegems THAT CAN STACK when you spam them. There's like various other non-Gem/non-Flask items that you can easily farm and stack to 99. There are SO many fucking healing items that invaders often have a hard time beating hosts because they have SO many fucking healing items.

I never understood that mentality that you need to make the healing items more scarce to make the game harder.

The problem when fighting beasts in Bloodborne is not the lack of healing items, it's the fact that you get killed before you have the opportunity to use them.

Making blood vials more expensive or rare only makes the game more tedious. It's on the same level as players demanding that you don't autofill vials from your storage when you die because it's "more hardcore".

That's not my complaint, I beat ds2 without any issue and moderately enjoyed it. But your claim was that they didn't mess with the system, and they totally shat on it.Those healing items eventually get rained on you but they're fairly scarce early game and if you're brand new to the series and dying a lot you run the genuine risk of farming them out of existence, which even if unlikely it's a shitty mechanic for that to be possible. I've genuinely considered killing everything in drangleic permanently just to be able to show off the sad empty expanse.

As for the estus system, while upgrading it fully wasn't particularly hard they still shat up a perfectly good system, which again you made the wholly false and moronic claim they did not change. It was stupid, 5 estus and kindling the fire if you want more was perfectly fine and made any other healing items unnecessary.

>>323254004

It's two loading screens, unless you are going from , say, Cathedral Ward to Nightmare of Mensis. The load screen back to Hunter's Dream isn't long at all either.

Not saying it's alright, but the loading isn't that bad in Bloodborne, especially post patch.

>>323254810
>your claim was that they didn't mess with the system
When the fuck did I ever make this claim? You must be mistaking my post for someone else's. The system in Dark Souls 2 is stupid because there's just WAY TOO MANY healing items. And if some dumb casual can't even beat the easiest game in the series with all these healing items rained down on them, that's their problem. They must have brain damage.

>>323254561
Like I said, it incentivizes players to get good and not get hit. And when they DO get hit, instead of healing with an item, they ACTUALLY make use of the Rally mechanic, which is currently rarely used among players because why use Rally when you have vials? People only use Rally when they're out of vials, and even then, the boss/enemy is usually already almost dead at that point after 20 vials.

Think of those Healing Tanks in Mega Man X games. They don't get handed to you. You either put up with the stupid farming for filling those tanks up or you actually git gud and fight the bosses/levels without healing. Most people, unless they're dumb casuals, do the latter.

Guys , i started NG+
how fucked am i ?

I think they expected you to be at full health for each enemy encounter, hence enemy and healing item spam.

I'm currently going through the DLC for the first time on NG+, not that I wanted to but the ending of the game came sooner than I expected. I stumbled upon Ludwig, what am I in for?

So with Dark Souls there were many different ways to stack up damage boosting effect. Eg: low health/rings/equipment/spells. Can you damage boost as much as you could in Dark souls? Because as far as I know there is no things like the red tear stone/blood within/crown of dusk etc
>>
>>323255923
No, lowest level class starts at 4 for some reason.
>>
>>323254387
Too bad you have to go thought a zillion boring dungeons and fight the worst non-boring dungeon boss in the game to get it.

Pretty much this.

>>323256048
Low level strat is Beast Blood Pellet + Paper + Righteous/Serrated modifier, shreds through everything like tissue paper.
>>
>>323255775
Then why not make it so that in order to be at full health, you had to be good enough not to get hit?

If you're just going to make it so you can, and have to, infinitely top off your health after ever encounter, why not just give the player regenerated health? What's the difference, other than saving the player a bit of tedium?

DSII fundamentally misunderstood the point of Estus.

I still don't understand why they didn't just patch in the simple ability to access a teleportation menu to go to any other lamp when you reach a lamp outside the HD.

It would have been such an incredibly simple fix. Even post-patch, you still end up accumulating a lot of wasted minutes and eventually hours waiting on a loading screen.
>>
>>323256129
Honestly, I just think that makes the Beast Claw a bit more special. It really would be fantastic if it had an item location in the main game (I was expecting the Embrace hunter in the DLC to give me the ability to buy the claws), but having to go through the dungeons isn't really that bad once you know what you're doing, and it makes you appreciate the claws a little more.

Honestly you don't see a lot of holy moonlight swords because you need to build very specifically to get the most out of it. And I've never seen a beastcutter in pvp.

Yeah, but get ready to get one-shot a lot.

It alternates between the easiest and the hardest SL1 run in the series.
Main game is relatively easy aside from one-shots, but you get oneshot anyway normally.
DLC will fuck you with a drill.

Fuck. What if I use a stamina rune?

>>323257668
I've been trying to keep 120 tops. I could see myself maybe pouring 10 into Vit, but I lose about 40 damage by removing 10 points of SKL, which coupled with gems should end up being a noticeable damage loss.

>>323258810
I don't know if you've checked, but the level range in Bloodborne is massive.

>>323259125
I think the stamina rune will do it, but I don't know if it's worth it at that point.
>>
>>323259113
Everything does stupid amounts of damage.

I've never had any trouble when playing NG+ though. I steamrolled Ludwig on NG+ on my first try, but it also was with my first character that focused on STR.
>>
>>323259113
It's a jump in difficulty, even compared to the base game, and harbors two of the hardest bosses you will find. NG+ means they will be even harder.

Have fun, anon.
>>
>>323258067
At 25 strength/skill and 50 arc you get 491. At 12 skill you get 448. 43 extra AR is not worth over leveling or having less than 40 VIT over.
>>
>>323242054
people praise the blade of mercy but nobody mentions you cant use papers with it because it does arcane damage
>>
>>323259224
I've used it on an Arc/Str build and had amazing results. Get good.

I'm just saying keeping my level around 100-110 is well worth that extra 40 AR, you have to bear in mind that people level 120 are going to have more health and defense than people level 110, which makes the 40 AR moot and makes matchmaking that much harder.

To be fair, most people probably don't realize the mobs aren't aggressive to you unless you get in their face or hit them.

Otherwise, I had problems finding the witches too when I actually got around to it myself, but it's easy to just run around and look for them either way since they zone in and out.

I've found Souls games have bosses people are good at and bosses people are bad at. I rekt O&S my first and left Ornstein for last, but kept getting my ass handed to me by Firesage Demon in that tiny little corridor hallway for some reason.

He's showing you mercy. Killing you in the dream would free you from it and allow you to awaken in the morning and leave Yharnam behind you forever.

If you kill him, you do the same for him. It's an act of selflessness, because then you're stuck in his place.

Unless, of course...
>>
>>323261381
You're dead in the waking world. The game starts out with the real you, no Dream, nothing. Then you die and waken in the Hunter's Dream.

When you wake, the same fate that befell Micolash befalls you too. That's why you have to die to ever see the Dream.

it's true that certain people are better at certain bosses than others, but the consensus that I've reached with many bloodborne players both online and off is that the witch of hemwick is one of the easiest bosses in bloodborne, even of the souls series. My first time facing the boss i quickly found out that the minions were slow as shit and only aggressive when i was near them

>>323261497
All headcanon, senpai. The trophy explicitly states that you survived the night and awoke to the morning. Djura and Eileen are both hunters of the dream that were once in your shoes, but woke from it permanently. They are no longer connected to the dream and thus can't afford to die again.

You can adjust the lock on with the Cleric Beast between its head and chest, that should help. It's better not to lock on with him though, unless you're throwing molotovs.

Even more, a player with half a brain will make blood bullets, rally, and not use a quicksilver bullet outside a bossfight. I had 99 of them in the vanilla game by the time I got to gascoigne. Now you can have 600 if them. No, I'm sorry, these people need to stop being shit.

If you have a long ranged weapon, hitting her head deals massive damage. Just learn what moves can connect, it's relatively easy with the Axe, the Church Pick, or pretty much any large weapon that does an overhead attack.

He's one of the gentlest and most good natured people in any of the soulsborne games.

Presumably by giving them proper graves, there certainly are plenty of them scattered about.

So let me get this straight. Ayyliens come to earth and an ancient civ that built the chalice dungeons worships them then die out. William and a couple fuck buddies find the ruins and start to study their stuff and uncover things while one of them starts to use blood magic and goes on to found the church and hunters. Kos(or kosm) gets killed by hunters and the whole hunter lineage gets cursed to return back then eventually. Yharnam miscarries the paleblood baby which is the reason old blood turns people into monsters. You go to Yarn ham to cure some unrelated blood plauge so Gary makes you sign a contract to put an end to monsters which let's you enter dreams. Am I missing anything important?

Yes I know his character in the game does not reflect the picture, but can you honestly say there wasn't a point in time where he killed a beast and enjoyed the bloodshed? Because literally every hunter bathes in blood like so.

Then maybe you should read the lower blood items, coldbloid dew and such. Hunters aren't meant to be bloodthirsty lunatics. That's what a beasts is.
>>
>>323265112
Not when I put a blade in her skull.
>>
>>323264949
Not every hunter. Not Eileen, not Maria, and certainly not Gherman. He knew how to keep himself from being addled by blood.
>>

He may feel bad about it afterwards, but I'm assuming hunters would go into a frenzy during a fight. That is exactly what the picture is supposed to depict.

allright, so im upto the third boss. He has this stick/axe thing. the lil minions he summons were wrecking my shit, but oddly he can wreck his minions which makes me laugh. Does he just keep summoning minions forever, or could i stop it?

You kill the suiscious beggar. In helping ten old lady you seal her doom. Gascoigne's wife dies by his hands, and he at yours. You offer refuge at Odeon chapel to his child and she gets eaten by a pug. Her sister realizes she is alone and kills herself. Adrianna dies when you kill her child. You also kill Henrik. And djura and his ally. If you help Alfred, his quest is done and he kills himself. You're the freaking angel of death.
>>
anyone up for helping me out with micolash im on new game plus and hes kicking my ass
>>
>>323265595
I thought the old lady only dies if you take too much sedatives from her?

Oh so that's why the sister died. Kinda weird considering how she's happy she got the ribbon.

I left Djura alone though, but that fucker downstairs won't stop harassing me so he had to go.

What about Iosefka?
>>
>>323265408
You fight Gherman yourself and he absolutely doesn't act like that. Sorry, the picture looks cool but that's just not what he is.

Stick around by her and you'll realize that she starts basically caressing the ribbon and calling it her precious or something. Go down the ladder beside her house too, you'll find she jumped off it to her death.

She's kill.

Fake Iosefka fucked her over and you kill her (or not) when she becomes an ayylium.

Sure. But the canon fate of Eileen is utterly in the air. All I know is in my game she took blood, said she was giving up the hunt, and when she left there was no sign or reason to believe that she'd died.
>>
>>323265839
Yes

The moon was affecting her, maybe she got some sanity back and regretted it?

Fuck djura

She gets pregnant and goes insane, when she was sane she was experimenting on people, so she had to go. Doing that to the real Iosefka, despicable.

>>
>>323266207
I personally assumed she was dead honestly. I mean she's lying in a pool of blood and does the whole "Just let me rest awhile", hinting at her death. I mean plenty of people who die in the game don't show back up, like the Suspicious Beggar and shit. Only one I can think of that stays permanently is the little girl's older sister.

What dialogue? I thought she only gave you her blood vial and tells you to fuck off.
>>
>>323266613
The Kin you kill in the starting room drops her Vial, that's the real Iosefka. The one you kill that tells you to stay away is the one experiment and acting like fake Iosefka. She's basically trying to be the one to come pregnant instead of Arianna, but she fails as her blood stays the same color when you kill her.

Credits confirms it, with Imposter Doctor followed right after Iosefka's name.

>When a great one descends, a womb will be blessed with child

Because. Only ones who don't go preggo are the old lady cause she must be barren and Adella, because she's a saint of blood and possibly shares Ebrietas blood, protecting her from being impregnated by the moon. She still goes insane though, and if you kill her she drop the Odeon writhe rune, so she may be pregnant and I suck beast Blood pellets.
>>
>>323266376
I thought that at first too. But the more I thought about it, the more up in the air it seemed. She never stopped breathing, and she didn't so much as leave a stain. Everyone in the chapel leave blood or a body. I think she survived.

>>
>>323266764
>>323266613
If you keep talking to her and getting vials in the early game, meaning you have to use them, she says something along the lines of hoping that you both survive the hunt
"So that maybe... I can finally see your face."
Or some romantic thing like that.

So out of these which would be better to focus upgrades on: Beast Cutter, Meme Knock off Sword, Chikage/Rakuyo, BoM, Burial Blade.

Like after he tells you to go to old Yharnam?

He's really not that bad guys. He's a fun fight. Took me two tries with Ludwig's guiding moonlight.

He's supposed to be in the garden I think, but every time I've played he just disappears after a very short while.
>>
>>323265839
So where is Djura's third apprentice?
One is in Old Yharnam, on is in the Hunter's Nightmare. Where's the third? Could the third apprentice be one of the beasts in Old Yharnam? Maybe his friend turned and that's what made him sympathise with the beasts?

Or is the third apprentice the corpse where you find the Charred set?

Spark Hunter Badge
"Badge crafted in secret by Archibald, the infamous eccentric of the Healing Church, for his friends."
Paarl drops the badge when killed, so he's definitely one of Archibald's friends.
>>
>>323268553
Out of those Rakuyo is your best bet out of the ones I've tried.
Burial Blade is outclassed by a lot of weapons imo and memeblade is just boring. I haven't tried BoM or Beast Cutter though.
>>
>>323269973
I remember Burial Blade being fun, but ultimately no stronger than my Cane.
Haven't really tried the Church Pick, though. I've heard it's pretty good.

>>323269530
In hiding, furiously masturbating to the doll's underwear.
>>
>>323270054
It is. I got it a while ago and while dubious at first, the tricked form is stupidly good.

You can even do a charged R2, into a second R2 attack that does more damage AND also leaves enemies open for a visceral, which means you can get 3 powerful attacks in. Not sure if it works with all enemies, but it worked with me.

How much tinge do I need to make Simon's not shit if I'm planning to run 27.2% physicals on it?

The Church Pick was amazing against defiled hotdog and amy but I still prefer the Rakuyo overall.
>>
>>323241193
BoM is pretty fun to use and has a high damage ceiling while dealing damage very quickly. It works really well against most bosses except for maybe amygdala and a few chalice dungeon bosses, which is why I use the church pick or rakuyo when I need a weapon with more range.

They're not really dead, just totally degenerated. You fight mad pthumerians in the chalice dungeons. The church servants also look a lot like them but supposedly they're "created" by the church.
>Yharnam miscarries the paleblood baby which is the reason old blood turns people into monsters.
I think the old blood just turns people into beasts because the blood just has power and aside from healing, that power happens to bring out the beasthood innate in all men, as implied by the beast roar item description.

I'm going to say no. Your only naturally scaling weapon is Burial Blade, so have fun with the rest of the game.

There's no split damage weapon otherwise, so you're either primary Arcane with just enough skill for a weapon you want to use, or primary Skill with a couple points in Arcane for utility spells.

The problem is that all skill weapons have crap Arcane scaling.
