You did spare her, right /v/ ? She wasn't bothering anyone and her land was peaceful, its inhabitants kind.
Of course not. Dragonslaying is knighthood's highest calling!
She's a crossbreed between a dragon and a fluffy creature.
Remove half-breed abominations
Nigga she straight up tell you how to do it. Even simply going near the platform triggers a cutscene.
I'm not a filthy DEX fag, so got no reason to kill her.
Any game that have you camp out outside a princess's room and stand your ground ?
There is absolutely nothing in-game which describes who her parents are, and the item descriptions + end credits call her Crossbreed
(end credits even says Dragon Crossbreed so that's why people think 1. of the parents is Seath)
Tho I would like to point out one of the popular fan theories, which claims her mother to be Velka. This would explain the fluff/feathers.
Pic related is a statue which is located in the painted world (the one that spins after you hit the lever), clearly showing an older female with a young child who also looks female.
I dont think there is any proof that these statues actually are supposed to be Velka and Priscilla but its a good guess.
Also the "motherly figure with a child" theme is popular in the statues around the game, and if you pay attention you can see the child actually growing up the further ingame you get. The first statue you see is a mother holding a baby.
Heard something like that before. There are also other references to Velka. Those crow/human enemies and you also find Velkas rapier in the painted world. Then there's also the ocult ember which some associate with Velka.
>implying I had a place for filth like her in my new kingdom
Hope she's yiffing in hell with the rest of her friends
Are there actually this many pages?
>tfw you cant drop the doll infront of Priscilla before jumping off
>STR fag that doesn't want to kill everything on sight
What a laugh
Fucking Miyazaki came up with this character? Christ no wonder so many people have a boner for her then. She's not even a special character, she looks like she belongs in one of those monster girl harems or light novel where she's the overpowered MC's love interest or source of their powers. Why is waifushit in a game like DARK SOULS in the first place?
what did you call me
> she looks like she belongs in one of those monster girl harems or light novel where she's the overpowered MC's love interest or source of their powers
She was originally going to be your companion, kind of like the Maiden in Black or emerald Herald.
Because gamers,anon.only people who have never had sex or a healthy female with anyone not their mom or aunt or whatever would throw so much bullshit around a character like this thus, she's waifubait to me.
Seath is a confirmed parent, Her original design as a heroine had her set out on a mission to kill her father.
The Mother is unknown, people say it's Gwynievere because she's massive and once lived in proximity to Seath while also being the daughter of Seath's best friend.
Others like to say Velkia is the mother.
>inb4 you will find the painting burned/torn to pieces
>Seath is a confirmed parent, Her original design as a heroine had her set out on a mission to kill her father.
Source or bullshit.
I was trying to Git Gud and finish the game
so I decided to bring my edgy side to life and just kill everything in sight, a cute fluffy princess wasnt gonna stop me
>Seath is the only dragon around Anor Londo
>Priscilla got three tails like him, one behind and two on her sides
>Both are white
It ain't like Dark Souls is known for explainign shit to you directly.
She only has 1. tail, the things on her side are part of the cloth/fluffy thing
Support for Gwynevere being the mother
>She's massive enough to take dragon dick, illusion fags can fuck off there is no reason Gwyndolin would commission a massive sofa.
>She is the daughter of Gwyn, Seath was made Duke; it is not beyond lordly custom for kings to send their daughters out like gifts to other high status lords.
>Priscilla was born with powers that were a threat to lords yet she was not destroyed. Instead she was sent into the painting and protected by an elite guard. If She was indeed Gwyn's Grandaughter, this would justify her continued existence as he would inevitably love her.
Support for Velkia being the mother
>The statue may represent Pricilla and her mother, whome resembles no one seen in game
>Velka has artifacts all over the painted world, most implying Velka was planning to stage a coop against the other gods.
>Her powers are implied to be of a dark nature, which is exactly the kind of power Priscilla has, the life hunt.
>The fluffy might be feathers instead of fur, and it's a fan belief that Velka takes the form of a giant raven.
You goddamn right I spared her but what was the fucking point? I didn't even get to see her tits let alone fuck the shit outta her.
Fucking game is bullshit
We'll both have to go find the fucking interview then anon, and screen cap when he says it.
You're taking this too seriously, it's a fucking souls game where at face value there is no lore and everything else is speculation.
The fact that nobody knows jack shit about why there are all these petrified blacksmiths shows we perhaps know every little about the story Miyazaki made.
>You're taking this too seriously, it's a fucking souls game where at face value there is no lore and everything else is speculation.
Yeah fuck discussion, fuck fun, fuck trying to make sense of it, am I right? It's just a videogame lmao
I'm not trying to be aggressive, I just asked for the source and no one actually seems to have it.
As I stated before, the end credits clearly call her "Dragon Crossbreed Priscilla" so I'm not claiming you guys to be wrong, I'd really just like to see the interview.
That's okay Anon, maybe it will pop up some day.
>Yeah fuck discussion, fuck fun, fuck trying to make sense of it, am I right? It's just a videogame lmao
Aren't you the one throwing a pissy fit because people can't find an old interview ?
I'm just asking you to back up such a major claim, and you keep dodging it.
>her land was peaceful, its inhabitants kind.
It says right there in the very post you just quoted that I haven't found the interview.
I don't see why I should search for it any longer as you are clearly incapable of reading.
She is pure, none of your memes will convince me otherwise.
Wew lad, you sure got me there. Now I have to accept your claim you cant back up as truth. I'm clearly in the wrong here, how could I be this blind?
How would you react if someone killed your sister, your only caretaker, and then proceeded to give you her soul?
Anyone else planning on replaying DS right before 3 comes out? I've been waiting months to so it would feel fresh again, can't wait.
But Artorias needed to die, Quelaag wasn't completely corrupted like he was. You only killed her because she was in your way.
>you will never be able to join the Chaos Covenant before killing her
>You will never be able to gather humanity for the two of them like Kirk
The Chaos siblings are kind of a fucked up lot
>Quelana has been sitting outside of Izalith's front door for the past 1000 years
>She's been pretending to absolve herself of her sins when in reality she's just too frightened to ever set foot in Izalith again
>According to Eingyi the Fair Lady (and probably Quelaag) would be ecstatic to see their lost sister again but she doesn't know that and so keeps herself hidden
why does she not have any facial animations when talking?
she smiles while fighting
He's a demon anon, all demons are savage false life except the bat demons in Anor Londo.
My theory is Priscilla is ignorant of the hollowing.
Everything in the world is something that was exiled and isolated from the gods.
Notice the things that inhabit it, Crow Demons that are likely related to Velka, Velka's stuff, Hollows with bloated faces, mutant slime hollows.
Basically these things weren't always hollow, they were living once, living abominations. Perhaps when alive they were kind, but hollowing took them like it took everything else.
The story get shaky whenever you think about how many violent encounters could have been prevented by some simple communication.
I hope they don't have that in DaS3. I don't like knowing that I don't have to fight the boss. Except game logic dictates that I do.
I did what every person should've done.
Petting that lonely tail.
I would guess it's a practicality thing. Not having facial animations while talking allows easier changing and addling lines without needing to go and fiddle with the animations too.
Will we get a fight as atmospherically/thematically cool as Gwyn in DS3?
A lot of characters were slated for facial animation, Andre of Astoria has them.
Again, I'll refer to the old interview about cut content that nobody can find so take it with a grain of salt.
Priscilla was supposed to be the maiden in black of DaS, so the smiling and shit might have to do with an intended fight sequence?
Gwynevere has an animation where she opens her eyes and talks with facial animation, handing the Chosen undead an item.
This too was cut for some reason.
Andre is loaded with animations, as Miyazaki had intended him to have a story about being the son of Gwyn before that was cut and Solaire became the "candidate".
I think they're getting better at it. Iosefka is a good example. When you intrude into her clinic she won't actually attack you unless you get too close. She'll even offer to keep the arrangement you two share if you don't intrude.
Really though DaS1 already had it with the Priscilla encounter. She doesn't really want you there and will offer for you to just leave. They should've kept the Quelaag dialogue where she tells you that outsiders aren't permitted in so that when you do try to get past her you know why she's attacking you.
Ornstein wouldn't have turned, he's mandated to guard Gwynevere's illusion. Which is really shitty by the way. Ornstein has been Gwyn's knight from the beginning. Fought the Dragons and helped Gwyn win his throne. And his reward for all his service is to be stuck guarding a hologram
For what, people you could have talked into not fighting you? I don't think Ornstein would have ever backed down, his job was to allow only a worthy undead to receive the Lord Vessel by guarding it with his life.
>but she doesn't know that and so keeps herself hidden
what's more tragic is that she probably feels guilty about surviving and is very aware of the fates of the Fair Lady and Quelaag and cannot bring herself to face them.
Still Quelana will always be my mentorfu. I love the way she is surprised but also relieved when you come back to see her.
>My question still stands except swap homo with heterosexual women.
Well, I certainly don't obsess over man ass, but you have to admit that dicks are objectively more interesting than boobs. They're not just lumps of flesh used for feeding kids.
>They're not just lumps of flesh used for feeding kids.
tits are alright, but cute faces are better
Yes because physicality are more male traits although there are traits most women find physically attractive. But emotional traits are more a feminine thing so there are more emotional things they look for. The only problem is that it's harder to design "likes to listen and understand" in a character design.
I killed her for her weapons in my current playthrough because I'd never used them before. Dagger is fun, probably the only dagger I'd ever consider using. Scythe is stronk but I don't think there are many enemies susceptible to bleed that won't just die before their bleed bar fills (only assdemons come to mind), plus I have to use the bloodshield and bloodbite ring for it to not kill me in 2-3 hits.
I don't do PvP, is the bleed buildup from these weapons useful against a player who isn't using bleed-resistant shit? Or will it kill them too fast?
The Age of Dark is at the front door and Humanity is at a premium. Most humans are scrounging and killing each other just to get one. I don't think anyone would ever consider the possibility that there's an Undead walking around with 99 of them let alone just asking for one.
In the canon sense you would, the chosen undead has a high resistance to going Hollow but would realistically be chugging down humanities to keep himself sane like all the other Undead that are trying to stop their hollowing.
As long as you play dark souls you aren't hollow, you're only going hollow if you give up the game, which is something Crestfallen establishes.
Regardless of what the serpents say, burning humanity reverses the hollowing.
Though really burning it is what Framp wants, as it weakens the dark and strengthens the flame.
I wish once you got 99 humanity you'd start looking more like the 4 kings or something since that's what essentially happens when you collect a lot of humanity.
Well I quickly learned to record and convert mp4 to webm, heres the "talking" animation
hey fuk u
my heart hurt getting this...
I wasnt there to discuss whether the theory was correct or not, and was
>You're taking this too seriously, it's a fucking souls game where at face value there is no lore and everything else is speculation
proper discussiong, asstwat? I literally just wanted him to back up the claim by showing the source, can you not read?
Yeah, but you have to tongue in cheek the fact that as long as you, the player are playing the game as the chosen undead, he won't go hollow.
Even so, the npcs make it apparent that seeing someone as decayed as you is a rare thing and most people who look like you are complete hollows.
Only you and the two near-hollow npcs count as such an uncommon case.
It's probably bait anon, "she" is trying to say women don't have sexual interest in male parts which isn't true.
I've seen it before, someone pretending to be a woman who's completely lost as to why men find something attractive and acts like it's some sort of disturbing and unnatural thing to real in replies.
It's very similar to flatfag bait.
>You did spare her, right /v/ ? She wasn't bothering anyone and her land was peaceful, its inhabitants kind.
I'm going to cut off her fucking tail, then use it to finish her. Fuck you and fuck those wheel skeletons and fuck those harpy sluts.
>"she" is trying to say women don't have sexual interest in male parts which isn't true.
I have never said that. I said that women, as a group, don't have an obsession over a single boring part of the male body, like men do with boobs.
When paired with the chaos blade it's 50% bleed out is the strongest in the game. It also has shield reach around like great scythe and looks fucking slick when paired with the red mage set.
You look like a real cultist with that get up.
Not even a waifu fag. I'm just genuinely disappointed the painted world exists for you to fall into and out of.
>thinking you can talk for every woman
I know females that obsess over dick, or if they are a lesbian, they obsess breasts. Why does this matter anyway? Why do you have to shit up a good thread with you dumb opinions?
How do you know? I've seen LOTS of women obsess over man ass, maybe not as much as men obsessing over boobs, but almost.
And anyway, why do you care?
>anything like the obsession that men have over boobs
That's it, I give up. You people can stay delusional.
>And anyway, why do you care?
Because no matter what fandom I join, I have to constantly endure men pushing the characters' boobs in my face. It's getting very annoying and I can't stand it anymore.
You sound like you have some personal issues you need to work out, like an inadequacy perhaps. Any adult wouldn't really give a shit about this stuff, contrary to what you see on /v/. Good luck.
You most have a low libido, but this is also likely bait.
>Every fandom I join people talk about boobs
This is REALLY baity or you are total cancer?
You want to hear it? Evolution and natural selection happened. Men sexually select females who built up excessive breast tissue as a response to their sex hormones at some point after we became fully bipedal. The reason is hypothesized that breasts resembled butt cheeks, as the fatty excessive build up of fat on our asses had already been integrated into the mating and selection habits of simians. This mimickery was likely a result of humans starting to mate face to face more often than behind as a form of social bonding.
TL;DR men started fucking woman with a chest ass mutation which helped developed our social skills as a species.
So men obsess over tits because tits are attractive, I'm sorry you're so retarded you can't comprehend it. It isn't weird because countless other animals do it, like the peacock.
I kind of understand, I'm more of a demoflat and I find overly huge breasts gross, but I don't let it bother me.
And I don't let it bother me when women obsess over male characters and post their gay fanart all over the place.
Again, why do you care? I see lots of stuff I dislike on the internet, but it's ok, other people like it and I can just ignore it.
Can you not read? I supported other girls on my post, what does that have to do with mens rights activism you utter idiot?
>And I don't let it bother me when women obsess over male characters and post their gay fanart all over the place.
Maybe because this happens only in closed communities, and not all over the internet...
Strength weapons are typically slower and use more stamina per swing but hit very hard and tend to stagger enemies for a while. Dex weapons are much faster and don't use as much stamina per swing and combo much easier but don't do as much damage or stagger as STR weapons
Go discuss this elsewhere you autist this is a videogame board.
How were you supposed to know to jump into the painting?
With dex weapons you have to hit people 80 times to kill them and they are supposed to be good at counter damage and parrying/backstabs, dont expect to break your enemy's poise!
With str weapons you hit people like 3 times and they fall over dead, and they actually are good at parrying/backstabs (but not counter damage), poise break happens when you glance at your enemy with a str weapon equipped, you dont even need to swing.
It's a huge point of interest and has a "press button" trigger when you approach it, you couldnt have actually missed it
I think you should try to understand what exactly bothers you about that.
And now let's discuss why Quelaana is the best sister.
You know you can interact with it because if you walk up to it without the doll it'll give a prompt that it can't be interacted with instead of just sitting there being a painting. If you mean as a character, you didn't know, you just touched the painting and it drew you in
Because she's the only one who got away when Izalith blew up? Which raises the question of why the last daughter of chaos near BoC's front door didn't turn into a spider lady
Things that should have been in Dark Souls
>A ominous shadowy aura and altered features as you approach max humanity
>possibly some minor perks to this as well.
>A Titanite demon with two legs as a boss in NG +
>A lost izailith on fire and full of demons.
>An actual bossfight with the bed of Chaos, or perhaps a way to show that it births demons.
>More enemy diversity in Seath's place.
>Nito should have been harder.
>Dragon ending through joining the dragon covenant.
>All the cut content regarding the supposed Underworld up that was converted to Ash Lake.
You could bonewarp out before sitting at the bonfire, and if you were able to reach it you're skilled enough to deal with the area.
>stuck in the best area for 2-3 hours
Sound like a good deal to me.
There are exceptions to the rule, but Dex weapons are typically fast and focus on thrust and slash damage as well as bleed.
Spears are dex, curved swords are dex, ect.
Strength are slow weapons like maces, axes and ultra great swords, do high damage and poise damage at the cost of speed. They typically do Regular and Strike damage, the later being the least resisted by armor.
Then there is quality which consists of straightswords and halberds. these are c/c scaling weapons meaning you invest in both Dex and Strength to get the most.
Plenty of exceptions though, Like Gargoyle Axe, which is a lot like regular axes in strength and speed but scales with Dex for some reason.
What is the Dark Souls equivalent to *ring ring* and *La La Laaa~*?
*tink* *tink* *tink*
>Either kill yourself in a fire to increase the length of the age of fire by just a little bit.
>Leave, become dark lord and possibly start killing and consuming humanity from whoever is left the in the era to become the a new 4king.
No, you join the dragon covenant and then become a full dragon who goes on attempting to remove the disparity.
People have argued that the game should have ended the moment you maxed out the dragon cove, with you in the ash lake with stone dragon.
At least DaS II implied all endings are canon, That one chosen undead became Dark lurker, the other died in the first flame and another became a dragon.
I have successfully used it against invaders before oolacile. If you attack really agressively most people will panic and die in a few hits to bleed.
The self bleed is only a problem if the opponent has lots of hp or if you forget to check bleed level when attacking. All in all it is pretty much a cheat weapon against lower level invaders.
That is my impression, but maybe i'm just in a shit region.
I typeset it because it's not like I had to fix my sleep schedule anyway.
She escaped the chaos flame too, but returned to the ruins to guard her mother.
Despite the game refering to the bed of Chaos as a seperate being, it's really implied to be the Witch.
I think DaS II confirms this, since the eye parasite in Lost sinner is referred to as female despite the body being male.
I murdered her to get the dagger and scythe and then realized they suck.
Can't say I regret it, though.
did people really have this much trouble with the spooky wheels? They werent as bad as they were in dark souls 1, and they didnt even patrol around much, and you could easily take them 1v1
Outside of using Quelaags clutchsword for most of my first time playing DS 1, I never use any boss soul or tail weapons weapons, but still try to collect as many of them as possible.
You mean rapiers which do 10 poise damage and take like 4 shots to break any halfassed armor in the game's poise even in the low poise world of dark souls 2?
Meanwhile while you have to poke them 4 times they only need to hit you once most of the time with their fuckhuge strength clubs
>>She is the daughter of Gwyn, Seath was made Duke; it is not beyond lordly custom for kings to send their daughters out like gifts to other high status lords.
Royal family never goes to small dukes. They are meant to cement royal marriages.
You get a darkmoon blade and then use Falachion.
Some will say a katana is better but the fact of the matter is Falachion is king.
But this is dark souls, where pvp is inherently imbalanced.
You will be more impressive and more celebrated for kicking someones ass with a Darksword than going full fledged faggot.
>Being a light cuck
Gee, what lord didn't harm the dragons in any way?
>there are people in this thread RIGHT NOW who wouldn't unseath gwyndoline's blade of the darkmoon
anyone have a hi res of this? google image search turned up nothin. would be an epic wallpaper
Souls games would be way better without being able to parry bosses. I beat gwyn without parrying my first time and it was fucking insane, same with Gherman.
It's more like parrying should be more restricted.
Make shields have shittier parry and shorter windows for riposte while allowing parry daggers to be more accurate.
Have it scale with dex or something too.
I don't think dexfags should have even better parrying, but I think that only light shields should have the current parry and heavier, metal shields should have a way slower more calculated parry.
Regardless, the reward for parry is too high as is.
Dark souls would be better without back stabs and riposte. I feel that if you want to be a sneaky critical faggot you should be forced to build for it.
I think backstabs are fine as they were in Bloodborne. The charge attack BS system finally perfected it, but parrying was still way too strong. A lot of Bloodborne's bosses and the PvP would be more intense and interesting if they couldn't be parried.
Friendly reminder that Nito did literally nothing wrong.
No anon, it doesn't.
Yes, of course it does you humongous faggot.
The idea is simple, the Dark sign makes you undead, which in dark souls seems to mean post death state where you are bound to magic bonfires where you are essentially immortal until you hollow.
To reverse hollowing, you destroy humanity or you keep eating it until you're a monster which is tabuu to the humans living in the Dark Souls universe.
The dark sign is a brand and ironically not dark, since it binds you to the bondfires.
This means either it's artificial or simply caused by the dying of the fire.
Yeah I spared her, up until I got to gwyn and it was time to clean house so I didnt miss any souls or equipment
this cutie was the only one I fully spared, but that's just cause I felt bad for her the first time
killed her every subsequent run though
Late with this, but I'm not using any sort of graphics enhancing mods except for my Claymore, arrows, and high-res font/UI.
I will find some way to waifu you, demon of genocide and rising numbers.
4chan isn't this important man calm down lol
>If thou seekest I, thine desires shall be requited not.
I didn't spare her.
>implying i'm not on here most the day
still doesn't mean i gotta get absurdly mad about nothing tho
Miyazaki said in the DaS Design Works interview that he has a thing for big women. He approved of Priscilla's design but when he saw Gwynevere's he was going to request it be redone into something more respectable but the artist who drew titty monster Gwynevere was so proud of his design that Miyazaki didn't have the heart to say no to him.
Probably not, it's better to just come to your own conclusions nowadays since most fanboys are set in their perceptions and aren't receptive to any kind of new ideas. It doesn't help that whatever Vaati says is taken as fact and that he was confirmed to just steal theories from /vg/ without any research of his own to back it up. Plus any new ideas someone might have get shot down as headcanon with no chance of being considered plausible because muh Vaati hasn't plagiarised a video on it. It's still fun to speculate though.
Like 2, it's set in and around Lordran but with a massive time jump and most of the architecture being gone. So much so that again, no one remembers it's even called Lordran. It's confirmed to be set after 2 though, but there isn't as big of a gap between 2 and 3 as there is 1 and 2 due to the fact that Drakebloods from 2 are still alive and kicking and that some enemies have the Drangleic crest on them.
After DaS3 From will never be making games for Sony and Bamco again. They got bought in 2014 remember? Bloodborne and Dark Souls 3 were the last games they had prior contracts for and once those are out they'll move fully to Kadokawa.
Not too much.
I mean you can watch Plague of Gripes argue about the lore for 40+ hours. He goes over just about every interpretation, even the uncommon ones.
But it's honestly best to come up with your own. It's always been that way since DeS with you filling in the blanks. Taking the words of people like Vaati or Plague as the laws is really limiting to your own experience.
All that matters is what Miyazaki has said and what the game presents.
I would, because if it sucks it will most likely be a result of bamco.
It all goes back to the original statement, publishers have fucked Miyazaki's vision way too much resulting in games that are almost perfect but not.
Bloodborne ended up fine because Sony was lenient, Bamco isn't and fucked sequil.
For this reason, I'm worried about DaS3. That amount of short handed development time won't be good.
It's been in development since DaS2 released so hopefully it'll turn out ok. I know that 3 has two directors but that the second one is just there too handle all the technical and human resources stuff while Miyazaki just focused on the actual game stuff while also being company president and directing Bloodborne. From what they've said in interviews It's basically Miyazaki says what he wants and the other guy does whatever is in his power to get it done so Miyazaki can handle his other duties while also directing the game.
And I doubt having a congo-line of souls sequels is going to do anything but creatively bankrupt miyazaki and bore the players with stagnant gameplay. Nor do I think that his vision is really all that grand.
Based on what I played in the network test, he's basically just making a DS sequel without any of the bizarre design decisions of the second game. I doubt you can really be grandiose when you're just making Dark Souls 2 electric bongoaloo.
Playing Das1 reincarnate on the bloodborne engine is an odd combo. I hope they actually make shield/armor/poise useful again. Will the fast paced bloodborne engine even allow slower/heavier weapons?
>Will the fast paced bloodborne engine even allow slower/heavier weapons?
Well for one swinging a full r2-charge with the kirkhammer is the most-boner inducing impact I've experienced since mallet-popping in chivalry.
two, look up footage if you want animation speed and combat speed. I found the greatsword to swing with lovely weight and everything had the impact my murder-boner needed.
Shields worked just fine but because you couldn't really adjust armor or view stats, I can't really tell you ins and outs of armor and poise values. Only that I could trade with the greatsword without any real issue.
And fast-paced bloodborne engine? Since when did a game engine prevent a certain game-feel?
Power-stance existed somewhat with the legion scimitars.
I mean I thought power-stance was never as viable as they wanted it to be so I wouldn't mourn the loss, but I don't know if the system is wholly removed. Hexes would be nice since they're just another magic system, but I felt that they were way too strong in DS2. Basically trivialized everything even though climax invading was fun.
I was mostly referring to Soul Memory and possibility stats like adp. Also the encounters just felt a lot less like gangs throw everywhere and closer to DS1.
But miyazaki now has more experience with bamco than he did with DaS1. Why wouldn't he manage his time better now?
And he is the president or something of fromsoft now unlike back during das1.
If she was the kid of any other dragon, she wouldn't be fluffy. Seath was the only dragon to lack scales. Every other dragon in the game has scales, from kalameet to everlasting. Even the wyverns. Seath is also a very bright color, not matching the other dragons either. If any other dragon had banged gwynevere/velka/whoever, priscilla would almost be guaranteed to have dark hair.
If we consider that priscilla could have been an experiment to the end of making "Scales of immortality" and that it ended up with next to no success because she has no scales to speak of, there really isn't anyone that makes sense for the father besides seath.
No other dragon would even be able to get near anor londo anyways.
There are just too many issue's with another dragon being the father. Seathe is the only sure bet.
Power stance could have been improved upon, but It worked well enough with katanas and other weapons I don't see why they'd scrap it.
I agree that Hexes should have some variability. Sorceries are pure damage and gimmick spells, miracles are defensive and fire is aoe damage.
Hexes were an improvement above all of them, from powerful simple nukes to utility.
With Sword quality, it isn't show that swords are better than both Dex and Strength, so why should hexes?
That being said, it would be difficult to think of ways hexes might work if they weren't an upgrade of all three spell types.
I just like dark damage because I'd rather be a dark paladin than a holy one.
>I agree that Hexes should have some variability. Sorceries are pure damage and gimmick spells, miracles are defensive and fire is aoe damage.
>I just like dark damage because I'd rather be a dark paladin than a holy one.
I think she was an experiment, but one made with his own dick. He possibly wanted to see what a lord/dragon hybrid would result in and gather an idea of the scales of immortality from that.
The reason I don't agree with the purely artificial notion is she was born a half breed, she wasn't a maiden taken and turned into a dragon hybrid thing like the squid girls.
>Power stance could have been improved upon, but It worked well enough with katanas and other weapons I don't see why they'd scrap it.
Power stance railroaded builds too much in my opinion and in pvp single weapons two-handed were still too dominate. If it comes in again I think it'll probably be for weapons like the Legion Scimtars where they're similar to trick weapons in bloodborne (your moveset changes with the push of a button).
>Hexes were an improvement above all of them, from powerful simple nukes to utility.
That was there core issue imo, simply too much bang for your buck. I know that Souls is missing effective dots. I always wanted to be that invader that threw like six dots on a guy with each of them fucking his shit up before running away.
>If we consider that priscilla could have been an experiment to the end of making "Scales of immortality" and that it ended up with next to no success because she has no scales to speak of, there really isn't anyone that makes sense for the father besides seath.
Well I think the only problem with her being created to solve the scale issue is that she really doesn't fit the bill.
All her lifehunt shit and 'danger to the gods' shit seems like she was built as a weapon first.
Experiments can fail and have entirely unexpected results. Like i pointed out, she is likely an experiment, but without any scales to speak of, she's a failed one. As well, the child of a dragon and lord could easily have a power like the life hunt. Especially if the velka thing is true.
>tfw David Bowie is dead
I don't know how it applies to Dark Souls but I needed to tell someone. I imagine /mu/ is in an absolute shitposting hurricane right about now.
>but without any scales to speak of
Her neck has scales
I was pro kaathe forever, I never did dark sorcs in the first because I detested a sorcery build.
I wanted a weapon augment build, but with dark shit and I got it in DaS II.
too bad the game was sub-par and dark weapon looked like purple coolaid.
Life hunt could have been a result of lord powers contradicting the dragon powers.
In DaS dark wrecks light, light wrecks dragon.
Combining something eternal and immortal with the disparity representation of life creates a nasty contradiction.
Even with dex weapons some of the most viable strats unless you were Australian was two-handing a blacksteel katana and herp-derping people.
ice-rapier, santier spear, and crypt-blacksword were all good alternatives. And let's not forget that parry-daggers are an option over powerstancing.
I just think that powerstancing offered too little bang for all the stat investment that some weapon types needed.
And speaking of the katanas, dual-wielding them before powerstancing always worked better for me, the r1 stunlocks you could do with them was impressive.
Hell of an unexpected result.
Hell of a good talker Seath must've been to convince Gwyn that he totally wasn't making a god-killing weapon after Havel's betrayal
I just woke up and had no idea Bowie died.
I won't see Bowie end as ashes. I won't scatter his sorrow to the heartless sea. No one should have to burn in the kiln for the rest of us like based Bowie. He is my Lord of Cinder.
Poor guy tho.
Imagine how Araki and Kojima must be feeling right now.
Here's to you 2016, you fucking cunt.
I've been in the mood for another Dark Souls run. I kinda wanna do something interesting. I was thinking Bows + FAI or something like that. I'll probably use the Composite Bow until I get the Darkmoon one, or is FAI Composite better?
True as that may be, they may not be what seath was looking for. they may have no power at all, or even be part of her lifehunt ability.
I should have said "No scales of immortality to speak of".
