>>323828040
This is my third time beating DS2, first time beating SoTFS, I just wanted the last giant soul so I could kill vendrick and fight Aldia, but whatever, I did it with only 3 souls now.

That lost bastille comic is a different situation
>>
>>323828873

It's not. If you beat the giants one by one the Dragon Knights won't aggro. If you skip and start running or summon they will all aggro.
>>
>>323826562
I wish you could still get invasions there.
My favourite past time was doing co-op there and at the final stairs use the body stone, switch to black dragon set, hit one of the guys, run to the door before ally realizes anything and block the exit while my dragonbros rape the poor bastard..

The entirety of dark souls 2.

It's neither fun nor challenging.
>>
>>323835319
Not sure which is the best one but spears are pretty damn great. They have good range and poise damage that will stagger most regular sized enemies. Can also hide behind a shield while attacking with it but that drastically reduces range and drains a fuckton of stamina if you're attacking and getting hit at the same time so I don't really use that myself.
>>

Why? It is the most unfun boss in the entire series

So pull him back a bit to avoid pulling the others. You can see well enough in that area that you don't need a torch anyway, don't bother igniting it up until you've killed the enemies, that makes it fine to roll into the waterfall.

You do realize that accents are not something that people make up. It's a real thing.

Because you're supposed to pull that lever to get your co-op buddies to run through the tunnels ahead of you and kill the mobs out of reach

And the blizzard area with the terrible boss at the end in Ivory King is the other co-op area.

a pair of infused scimitars, sunset staff + dark orb, upgraded shortbow/longbow

reach the Ivory King's ice castle ASAP and farm the initial skellingtons for the ice rapier.

fully upgrade it, no need to infuse or anything.

the ice rapier is the most effecient weapon if the game after Chaos Blade, Red Rust twinblade and Santier Spear all got nerfed. lightning magic also took a nosedive in damage output.

it is the "cheat weapon" of this game, just like Artorias' GS in Dark Souls and Blueblood Sword in Demon Souls

Tanimura gets shit on too much. Blame this guy for not knowing what he wanted. Tanimura was put onboard when shit got real, and made the best he could out of it. There's a reason Shibuya was never heard from again after Tanimura was placed in charge despite the game crediting both as Director. The DLC was also much better than the main game, and Im pretty sure that was purely Tanimura and... Zin, was it? tanimura was also placed on level design for Dark Souls 3 by Miyazaki.

Direction != Supervision
faggot
>>
>>323849119
I dont think there is one person assigned to writing. its probably a team effort. when Miyazaki is involved, he tends to probably do most of the writing or lorework, since he's admitted that when he's directing he likes to take direct control, but i assume that it is mostly a team effort. Sort of like how Mildred was a joke character, and as a team they probably decided they liked the patches encounter in DeS so they just brought patches along to Dark Souls because why the fuck not, and the same with Bloodborne
>>
>>323849804
1) Direction

1. the management or guidance of someone or something.

2) Supervision

1. the action of supervising someone or something

synonyms: administration, management, direction, control, charge.

3) Supervising

1. observe and direct the execution of (a task or activity).
>>
>>323849610
I dont think he did. Mightve been whoever was president of Fromsoft at the time, who was also respobsible for the musical chairs effect going on between Dark Souls 2 and Bloodborne, where all the experienced people were lifted out of DaS2 and put to work on BB, leaving DaS2 with big ambitions, but not much experience
>>
>>323850235
I don't know if you're being a fag or not, but just incase you're trying to freak people. Think of game Director as the same as movie director. A game supervisor is akin to a movie producer. While he does have a say in what does or doesn't happen, he's not on the same position as control as a director. In DS3 Miyazaki is director and Tanimura is an underling.

Fucking aids.

Anyway, playing through SOTFS atm and this whole game feels like it was made with multiplayer at the forefront due to the sheer number of mobs, it's dumb as shit. That area before Smelter is a short as fuck straight line, and there must be easily 20 fucking knights that jump out of every crevice to rape you.

Instead of actually making the game difficult it feels like they just copy pasted 50 of the same enemy and stuck them in every room to substitute difficulty, but it's not even hard it's just fucking tedious. Also, that whole fucking area and it's the same 2 mob models with nothing else, what a load of shit.

Good thing you never tried DS1 then buddy, because that shit is enemy gagbangs for the first half, then like 1/5 of the game of the same large enemy with large HP pool and a lot of poise copypasted all over the place, and then its back to smaller enemy ganbags with ranged spellcaster thrown into the mix, or the enemies walk through walls because fuck.

I love this meme. Dark Souls 2 actually had better enemy placement.

That's why I put my sign at the top before the boss. If fog comes up I just go through and come back.

I kind of like new dickish mob positions: it gives the keep and the knights a much stronger character. It especially works well at the start right after you open the gate where you will get stabbed in the back from seemingly nowhere if you get distracted by one of the knights that serve as a bait.
