There was also something about a fraction of the damage reduction of a weapon being applied in case of misstimed parries (and also whenever you were to parry an arrow, throwing knive and such. But why would you try to parry them in the first place evades me)

So basically those hits that you not quite parry, still taking damage, but avoiding the recoil, would inflict you less damage or something of the sort. It's been a while so I don't quite remember how it went

Played it, finished it quickly, regretted my purchase. Makes DaS2 look good in comparison. BB is to souls games what dragon age 2 was to its series. Its a streamlined version of dark souls to appease casuls that couldnt into patience and rational thinking. Only thing missing was press X to win.

What are some good greatswords/polearms for a two-handing build in Dark Souls 1?

Bloodborne was easier except Ludwig and shields are cool. I'd rather be a manly badass knight than a fedora-wearing fairy faggot who prances around and dodges into attacks like it's fucking DaS2.

>>323753474
Zweihander/Claymore are good with chaos/lightning
Greatsword/Demon's Great Machete is good with STR
Great Scythe is good with DEX. So is the Lifehunter scythe if you have good bleed resist.
Black Knight Halberd is also fun to use.

If you're planning on PvE heavy armor is fine. In PvP you should be able to fast roll, but still have some poise.

I had the most trouble with DaS2 the first time.

Primarily due to unbelievably shitty RPG mechanics, but it was still the most difficult.

DeS was a cakewalk the first time because you have so much fucking health. It felt like the whole game was balanced around phantom mode, so Cling Ring was +50% and human form was +100%. Could tank everything, and you had functionally infinite healing items.

Shields are pretty useful in some sections where there's archers and mages like Sen's fortress
Other than that, I never used shields in dark souls, since it was pointless in PvE from the start, and so many enemies just crushed you through shields
>>
I'm playing a Geralt of Rivia build in Dark Souls, mainly relying on dex and pyromancy, and no shield combined with dual-handing swords is a hell of a change of pace. Blocking is worthless, can't parry, certain encounters are just fucked without a shield.

I don't doubt that it's possible, but it's tough as shit.

I didn't want to pay $400+ just to play Bloodborne, but I didn't use a shield when I played Dark Souls because I played Demon's Souls and only needed a shield in that game once (for flamefucker).

When I first played Dark Souls 2, I made a resolve of not using shields because they felt like a crutch in Dark Souls. I was too dependable on them. So I played Dark Souls 2, its DLCs and then SotFS, always without shield. I got used to not having a shield and when I went back to Dark Souls 1, I also beat it shieldless, although it felt way harder, specially Manus.

I never played BB, but must be fun.

Aha, I see
There's quite a bunch of options, then. Good to know
How viable are the strong attacks in the Greatsword and the Demon's Great Machete? I heard DGM's is especially awful
Should I focus more on just landing normals vía countering or is it a good idea to play offensively and mixing up your attacks?

I suppose that having a decent ammount of poise is a must, given the starting and ending lags of the attacks

Why do BBfags think it is such a big deal to not use shields in a game?

Like holy shit, is BB the first action-heavy game you've played where you don't have shields (aside from two very shitty and situational ones)?

Have you not played any platformer ever or any character-action game ever where your character doesn't have any shields and has to rely on spacing and dodging to get by?

I fucking played through almost all the Mega Man games as a young child and never thought it was a big deal that I didn't have a shield (aside from very situational ones like Leaf Shield). Why do BBfags make a (generally) shieldless game such a big deal?

Could be that a major part of the combat of all the previous Souls games was the sword and board style and that an emphasis on evasion and aggression is a pretty big change of style. Possibly.

I'm just saying that having a game without shields is not a big deal like BB fags are making it out to be. Billions of action-heavy games existed before BB that didn't use shields. Not having shields isn't a revolutionary gameplay style that never existed before.

>>323755497
>was the sword and board style
That was ONE OF THE styles. It wasn't THE ONLY style. So the fact that previous games already allowed you to play without shields makes the lack of shields in BB even more pointless of a thing to praise. BB fags make it sound as if previous games FORCED you to use shields.

>>323755715
I said situational, didn't I? It's good for very specific purposes. You obviously can't use it to tank hits from most enemy attacks the way you could in previous games.

>>323755462
They did and because they were fair they were also easier

>>323755829
People who were bad at Souls games spent 90% of them turtling behind a shield. BB forcing them to not use that style made a lot of them realize that it's a lot more fun and more effective to play aggressively than turtle like a faggot.

I always found evasive rolling to be easy mode in Demon's and Dark 1 (haven't played 2 but it appears rolling is much more unfeasible).
Using a shield felt more challenging as most enemy attacks would take more stamina than a roll, anything other than pure physical would still deal damage to me, blocking leaves me in hitstun for a moment and still directly in the line of sight of an enemy. Had to be a lot more cautious on the approach and be more conscious of stamina usage lest I run out of stamina to block or get away.

Once I started wearing light armor and just rolled through all attacks, everything in Souls became a cakewalk. A cakeroll. A timed roll through a big attack, hit them a couple times, roll away when they swing again. Pretty much universal approach for any enemy in both games. Rarely bothered with parrying.

I just started Bloodborne, only a short ways into the game, killed the Blood Starved Beast and am on the fourth floor of a Pthumerian Labyrinth. My ability to dodge a dozen times in a row in rapid succession has made it pretty easy thus far. I was having a bit of trouble in the beginning until I realized dodging forward would often have me zip around behind the enemy I'm locked on to like it was nothing personnel. Dodging invincibility seems so preposterously forgiving.

that's understandable. Unfortunately, the whip form isn't very good. It has nice range and area of hit, but it's slow as shit and is one of the few weapons that can get fucked by level geometry. Anyway, after you beat the Cleric Beast you'll be able to buy a pretty cool Str weapon

Dodging in Das1 is genuinely easier than using a shield, even more so when you use the oak wood ring. Trying to be a fatty that stacked armor and used a sheild against Biggie and Smalls was a a lot harder than using the theif's armor and just oak ring dodging everything that came close to hitting me.

Elitist dodgers are the dumbest fucking thing, there's a reason most decent players prefer dodging, because it's the strongest option.

not him but the greatsword(if we are talking about DaS1) has a godly poke for a strong attack that is even better if you have the Leo ring. The poke hits like a truck on counters and does amazing poise damage

Axe is the undeniable best starting weapon.

You get to use one handed and 2 handed movesets and experience L2 swoops and charge attacks that actually do stuff. It has slams, pokes, slices and twirls.

Hello Reddit

The best Saw weapon is actually the Spear, not the cleaver. If you knew shit, you'd know shit.

However, I said axe is the best starting weapon. With proper blunt/heavy abyssal gemming lategame it still shits on everything anyway. Cleaver is nowhere near the best. Best at parrying because it's so predictable, maybe.

As someone who always played dodge and poke builds in Souls games, Bloodborne was ridiculously easy. The increased speed plus the rally system removed any real difficulty that style of play had left.

Inversely though, going back to after playing Bloodborne makes other Souls games seem far harder than before.

A ridiculously good vitgouge build with the wheel

You use it with 2 hands so that it gets arcane damage and most of its attacks hit multiple times and each of those hits gets boosted by the flat damage arcane gems which adds that amount of damage to hit mini hit

It basically allows you to have a truckload of health and hit like a dedicated damage build. Your only problem is your limited moveset which is offset by the fact that the dodge attack for the tricked wheel is insanely good and you have access to some hunters tools

You can do a left-hand attack after a parry then riposte afterward to get a bit of extra damage in. It only works in PvP and only if your opponent has enough poise to tank the hit without getting stunned, but it's something. Otherwise you only did it to look cool.

I like the aesthetic of shields and my favourite weapon is the longsword. Wish there was some kind of benefit to using shields aside from clutch though, if you can dodge etc you have no use of a shield, but a shield should be an alternative style, not a crutch, like you could spec into a certain stat and it gives a % of the stats of the shield to the actual player, such as defense, poise and elemental resistances, so having it in hand means more than blocking but more all around defense.
