get the hornet ring and the estoc or rapier and upgrade them as high as you can with the blacksmith. After that you can pretty much chain-backstab him to death as long as you can avoid the one-hit-kill with his dragon tooth
>>323794775 Neither. Parry is a method of defense entirely separate from rolling/dodging or blocking. It requires you to press the parry button just before the attack would hit you. The exact timing depends on your off-hand. Target shields for example are pretty forgiving in their parry timing. You also need to be very close to the opponent, so hugging is recommended.
If you successfully parry an attack, you can then perform a riposte on the enemy for a lot of damage.
Some attacks can only be parried partially (arrows for example) and will deal less damage and usually no stagger. However, if your enemy is a regular dude with a weapon, you can probably parry his attacks.
If you don't know what I mean, just attack a Side Sword-Balder Knight while he points his sword at you. You'll understand then.
>>323792102 you dodge late. the thing is slow as shit. if you dodge while he starts his swing you get hit. if you dodge mid swing it ends up no where near you, assuming you're light rolling. which you should be.
things you should do >Parry, his timing is a bit tricky tho >Keep your distance and when he hits the ground go for the backstab things your shouldn't do >stay in from of him as an idiot with your shield up
>>323798670 >Then why is he there? So you can fight and defeat him. Or do you mean for story reasons? That's because an old friend locked him up there.
>most of this game is is pointless Quite the non-statement. It's not more or less pointless than any other game.
>I don't even know how weapons and armors work Armor makes you take less damage, weapons are what you put into enemies.
>can't understand how playing this game blind is supposed to be challenging as opposed to just asanine. Why are you playing it blind? Apart from 3-4 things (don't use special souls via the inventory, don't raise your stats above 40, don't attack merchants) the game is quite clear and honest about everything. It gives you enough time to figure stuff out and adapt your playstyle.
>>323798670 I don't understand how you get to this guy in only 2 hour and can't beat him but anyway, you can upgrade your weapons/armor with titanium fragments or whatever, talk to the smith after the cathedral to buy fragments from him and upgrade your stuff.
Have a look in the inventory to see how armor and weapons work, there are 3 types of damage: piercing (ie when u backstab), cutting (or slashing) (ie when using swords), and blunt (ie when ussing masses),
types of damage seem to be : physical, magical, fire, electric (poison not included) for example your armor can be good vs physical but not vs magical.
You can also find weapons that deal non physical damage or upgrade a weapon into a divine weapon dealing physical and magical damage. Really just look in your inventory/status screen at least a little bit.
I've been replaying this game over and over. Trying to set a comfy route with little to no back tracking. So far I got: >Undead Asylum, start as warrior, pendant as gift, because why the fuck not. >Firelink shrine, lvl up strength to 16 >Undead burg, buy resident key, get pine golden resin, kill black knight, kill Taurus demon with pine resin, talk to Solaire, get to the bridge and open shortcut to bonfire, cut drake's tail with pine resin, get to the other bonfire and level up vitality and endurance open shortcut >Equip Drake's sword, Kill second black knight, kill armored tusk with alluring skulls, get mystery key, get to the cathedral, kill heavy knight, take Firekeeper soul, go upstair, kill enchanter, rescue Lautrec, go back to Firelink shrine, take asylum key in my way back >kill Lautrec, upgrade estus, go human, level up vitality and endurance, go back to undead parish, summon solaire, kill gargoyles >go to andre, lvl up, kill demon, summon witch, kill butterfly, get wolf ring, go back to undead burg using dark root garden short cut, kill havel, go to lower undead burg, free the faggot there, kill capra, go to depths, dunk butcher, explore depths, kill kirk, get ring there, kill enchanter, kill gaping dragon >go to blighttown, get dragon scale and firekeeper souls, explore until getting key to new londo, get astorian sword and shield, kill dragon get second scale, upgrade drake's
I don't really know where to go next, any advice? remember this has to be as comfy as possible. Should i finish blighttown or do something else first?
