Never got this answered 2 threads ago but,
Is base stat reqs(8 and 9 blt) worth it for ludwig/repeater and bowblade?
Currently running a pure skill build at 95:
Debating whether to put it in blt or more end for my BoM/Rakuyo/BB stam usage.
Man, the Astral Clocktower can be seen everywhere.
I'd say it's worth it to splash bloodtinge up to 10 to gain access to the Reiterpallasch. That thing is godlike, and besides that, 20 is more than enough endurance for anything you'd be running.
My arcane build just after stomping all over the Celestial Emissary.
I am trying to kill Laurence, the First Vicar, as a level 60 for the beasts embrace. Am I too low to summon anyone to help?
>L1, O, R1, O, R1, O, R1
For real though, dash R1 is godlike, but I try to utilize the R2's as well because for some reason no one ever seems to expect the third R2 slam. I've crushed many under the great wheel's spinning weight, and dear me does it never stop being fun.
What's the actual lore significance of the clocktower, though?
Also, was I the only one that it wasn't an actual level? Some Castlevania clocktower stuff in Bloodborne would be wonderful.
Fine. Any better? I wanted to do a nice white outfit but theres no good white pants for huntresses.
The fire poker fatty that guards the lever in lower pthumeru layer 2 drops these, is this new?
So Yharnam above ground is the real world right? It's not a dream unlike the hunters dream?
So if you let Gehrman wake you up, does that mean the night passes and its morning? Or do you wake into a different world?
I love the rivalry of Executioners/Vilebloods
Just as good as darkwraiths/dorkmoons
I always use the hunter run just for these occasional invades. I ended up helping that dude beat hotdog right after
Doesn't it announce to the host that you are being summoned as an enemy?
I don't think I've ever invaded someone via the HoH/RadianceXCorruption rune where the host hasn't been prepared for me being an enemy.
it's a great weapon but it's walled by people that dodge to the side because its tricked moveset heavily punishes people that dodge backwards using R1, rolling/dash R1, and running R1s
the alternative is to rely on the wide arc swipes of the untricked moveset but it's clunky enough to make you try sticking to R2s or transform attacks; the former is slow and only shines when people are dashing into you while also hanging a big "parry me" sign above your head, and the latter will make you even more predictable than wheel dash spammers
it's a lot of fun to use, though
Gonna use the Amygdalan arm with this guy and invade in Ihyll.
don't farm for chunks from regular mobs, you get loads in the DLC fishing hamlet, as well as once you rach nightmare of mensis in the main game. Chalice bosses at I think depth 4+ give chunks too.
get way more chunks from just summoning and helping people do chlice. Or even run an NG. one NG should be enough to get probably 3 weapons to 10+ without too much trouble.
On the topic of snatchers
Does anyone know if that static aoe thing and force pull attack serve any purpose other than fucking with you? It seems it only staggers you, for a short time and even then, you still recover after half a second and get a few free hits in.
Twin Blood Stone Shards can be bought out the insight bath for two insight a shard
If you run through the first Pthumerian chalice, you can grind insight super easily. Everything you need can be bought out of the regular echoes bath
Is there still anything good about the Blade of Mercy (apart from it's dash attack)? It feels like it's the equivalent of Ludwig's Holy Blade now, a new better version comes out and everyone jumps to that.
>can't be buffed
>reliant on R1 spam
>no crowd control (excluding running R2)
It really rustles me because it sounds and looks so fucking cool. Just the fact that Rakuyo and other weapons outshine it in almost every way is pretty annoying.
>Get invaded for the first time
>Wreck the dude almost immediately
that said fuck winter lanterns
Nothing is stopping you from making yourself a doll in real life and pretending she can talk, anon.
>there are people who still don't use Stake Driver exclusively
Stuck on Laurence, The First Vicar. Attempting to get beast mode at level 60 for my Coop character.
Can someone please help? I'll be waiting just outside the Smoke. Password will be bbg16
It's not a very min/max optimized build, but it werks.
I agree it's not a varied weapon, but the low range makes fighting a ton of fun. I never use the fight side of it, unless it's for a good R2 hit.
>Finally get a ps4 at Christmas
>Having fun exploring
>Not sure how to access Upper Cathedral, not gone down Hemwick Lane yet but that's okay we'll go the other way for now
>keep following this path, eventually there will be a dead end for sure
>lol game's over for u
So fucking salty. all I wanted was to be thorough down the paths and I end up at the final areas of the game
Now even if I restart I already know about the Amygdala's and Kosm and the Mensis helmet guy so I fucked up the natural order of learning the lore
Might just drop this for 6 months and hope I forget the finer details by then
I sometimes might even use 20-30 stamina on some builds but jesus chrism 42
This pretty much. When Gehrman got up and started swinging his scythe around did you not get a final boss vibe off him? You didn't submit your life did you, little bitch?
Just do a second playthrough
Yo what does visceral attack scale with? Is it my weapon? My Firearm? BLT? Str?
I don't see the problem. More stam = more attacks = more stagger
Did you guys even read his post? He says he 'went down a path' and somehow ended up at the end of the game. He would have had to do Rom, Yahar'gul, the One Reborn, the Nightmare areas, Amygdala, Micolash, the Wet Nurse and yet somehow didn't get that this was the main story progression.
In fact his experience seems completely 'natural' apart from the fact he fucking looked up areas and knew that he missed them, rather than discovering he had missed them.
If this isn't a meme I don't know what is
I clued in when the place was on fire and didn't finish the game
But I can't go back now and do it all out of order while the hunter dream is on fire. Plus even if I go back I've already seen the final areas and know why Yharnam's madness exists
The mystery and wonder is gone seen the final areas and know why Yharnam's madness exists
The mystery and wonder is gone
If half your attacks didn't miss, and you didn't set yourself up to attack someone else with no stamina, you wouldn't need a ton. Your webm is showing us that you're pumping end as a crutch to avoid stamina management. Play how you want of course, just observation.
I just tried taking off my rune and it worked. Beckoner, take off your rune too
You can shoot shit with BLT guns, Gattling guns and Arcane tools to keep things in stunlock while your stamina recover. Only the most optimal and aggressive plays can make use of 25+ stamina and you are better
But you're still missing some fairly major pieces of the puzzle.
There is mysteries still to uncover, and even if you have the main gist of it I can tell you there's still some huge points missing
Can anyone suggest a build that allows me to use the steak driver early until I get the beast claws?
I've just turned off my ps4 so I'm committed to taking a break and cooking something.
The mystery and wonder is an illusion of ignorance you fucking retard. The experience is what you paid for. As soon as you see something it isn't a mystery anymore and this isn't a movie. It's dealing with it, your choices in action being reacted to by the game.
You're an artfag, the type that make this world unbearable, so sentimental about the stupidest shit. "I've tried all the outfits on in the game, I'm done".
It isn't the coop rune, it has ZERO cooperative effect. It's the Coop covenant, with zero coop restrictions or modifications, only existing to make the fucking vermin appear. This confederate rune rumor is way too old for this general to keep spouting. It CAME from reddit.
I did miss the first enemy there, but it's not like that happens all the time. I saved the video there because I liked how I dodged in the end there.
The reason I went for high stamina isn't because I want to avoid stamina management, which I still need to do on bosses. But on trash enemies my big stamina bar allows me to continuously attack and stagger, killing most enemies in just one combo. It's very effective.
On bosses like Laruence and Logarius it was kind of wasted because of the small windows of attacks you get, so I don't really use up the bar. On bosses like Maria and Orphan of Kos, however, the giant bar is fantastic.
Change to Cruel fate origin, and I wouldn't level END at all unless you're certain you'll never want to use any elemental weapons apart from the Saws/Cane, but that's up to you I guess.
No, I just tested it myself. Something fucked up the covernent because I wasn't getting any "Searching for beckoning bell message with matching password" but it's working perfectly fine when I'm co-oping with the beast rune
Violent Past starting build, 3 points into Str and you can equip the Steak Driver. It's not a very picky weapon.
Yeah but you're like a scared spazz in PvP that dodges too much. Just sprint through and watch how often walking/sprinting baddies miss you right next to them. You're dodging all over the placed to land one blow when you could have just sprinted to the left of everyone, struck the first, turned around and locked on, then one shot them both.
In fact attacking the first would have made the second start an attack animation, you could have used a charged R2 to fuck him up then and it would have been an entertaining webm instead of a mundane one that reveals your weaknesses.
The message isn't needed, all that's needed (and when you're glitched out of coop search) is the little bell icon. We literally did testing of this. Actual testing, where we forced ourselves into unsummonable states and tried to see what changed it.
Not anecdotal testing, by which you mean you just tried something different one time without any control because the dude you were trying to get is GONE.

I have never met a bigger faggot in this game. Makes me wish I used guns. I'm ecstatic that I caught his ass afk and pounded that pussy.
>Yeah but you're like a scared spazz in PvP that dodges too much
I don't have PS+, so I don't do PvP.
As for the rest, I rushed that part because I was trying to get down the well. I don't normally play that recklessly, but I had died a few times to the 2 giant shark monsters and just wanted to clear it fast.
Not him, but every single time confederate runes made messages not appear, summoning never happened and every single time it was solved by removing the rune.
It's gotten to the point where I don't ever use the rune because it's guaranteed to fuck up co op for me.
>all this projecting
Stop justifying the fact that you absolutely suck at targeting and actually trying to fight anything, rather than just pressing two buttons, dodge and R1 non stop
Let's be clear. That's footage you chose to showcase.
I have it happen the way people describe it often with my Milkweed rune, and a dude on my flist we smash chalice dungeons and grind together, he has it happen with HoH.
You do not need that much stamina, base END and tier 3 Anti-clockwise is fine, if you need more equip a second rune.
The only reason you would drop points in END is if you didn't need the points for weapon requirements. He already has 50 VIT and 50 ARC, going past that is a waste unless he wants 99 ARC for tool damage, but he'll need to go to a higher level for that.
Nah, I like his music and I got a 50VIT character to tank his 1 hit kill bullshit so I'm always happy to co-op him.
Hope you enjoy the beast embrace rune.
If you want to grind anything, I'm okay to help
I don't what to tell you, but from my experience, it's only ever been the Confederates Rune fucking stuff up. I only ever do password co-op for /bbg/ and every time there's been a problem it's because one of us had the rune on.
Fuck knows what triggers it exactly but that's been the issue for me every time.
>Base game, I enjoyed beast claws, DLC comes out and I walk through it on the only still NG character I have, have fun.

Help me /bbg/
If he's going to be primarily using ayyyy, there is absolutely no reason to change anything at all. ayy is a stamina hog and base with %20 isn't enough.
If he doesn't want to use any specific weapon other than ayyy, the build is absolutely perfect and optimized for BL98.
There are plenty of twinks that may lend a hand for bosses that are annoying. Baring that, all you have left is to kill Rom and then head to the Grand Cathedral for a showdown with edge lord
Apparently so. I just so happen to have a beast cutter build that I'm farming for as well. Let me know if you are farming
>If he's going to be primarily using ayyyy, there is absolutely no reason to change anything at all
That's why I only suggested changing the origin and dropping END only if he didn't want to use other weapons.
I think Parasite is perfectly manageable with 12 END and a rune or two but okay.
are you sure?
optimized for bolt damage, I can get like 48 flat bolt with two cold abyssals and I have a feeling that would shred shit with the L2 since it probably doesn't have a modifier that great
32% blunts drop from pomf Watchers
But you have to go full Korean.
>want to try a new weapon
>it takes 320 insight to get enough chunks for +9
>farming chalice dungeons takes forever and isn't guaranteed
>I'm doing that right now, and haven't gotten one in 2~3 hours
I fell for the Stake Driver meme. I blew all my chunks on Amydala's Arm and Pizza cutter.
I want to try out Kirk, Boomhammer, and Beast Cutter but it's going to take forever to get these chunks.
Embrace your inner Korean and prepare for absolute soul crushing heart break
>Slaughter halpless noobs
43 Twink Build
>Slaughter halpless ganksquads
66 Twink Build
>Actual 1v1 pvp
>Reddit, streamers and over-leveled korean grinding pvp
Assuming you have +10 and chalice gems of course.
the main game has just 1 chunk shy of getting 3 weapons to +9, no idea how many can be found throughout the DLC
in any case, you'd get more than enough chunks by farming for the gems you'll be filling your weapons with
I suppose I should go farm more gems. I usually end up just save scumming it until a good one drops.
That'll save me the trouble of having to swap out gems every time I want to try a new weapon.
Dark Souls 2 design philosophy. In a game where the controls favor 1v1 attack and 1v2 is a tactics game, how about 1v8 where the 8 are just tissue paper that are there to hit you in the back when you get tunnel vision or try to take on the boss.
You guys probably get this question like 12 times per thread, but how do I go about making a Holy Moonlight Sword "build"? I put "build" in quotes because it looks like I'll have to go level 120 for this one and I feel like a total shitter.
So do I just go 40/40 on STR and ARC or what? Also, how hungry for stamina is that baby?
>mfw I already have perfect Thrust gems but not perfect Blunt gems, way before the DLC
Technically speaking, I haven't found them in 6 months then. Is that not Korea enough?
Have you been actively farming for blunts every single day for the last six months?
My image took me a 5 days just for the radials and I gave up on the triangle after 2 extra days and settled for the Undead Giant Blunt gem.
And when I say days, I mean I literally sat on my fat ass for 6+ hours per day.
It has its moments. I thought Royal Rat Vanguard was a fun fight because part of the fight was finding the right rat in middle of the horde.
But there's times where it's just pointless fodder to prevent you from healing safely, or add bullshit difficulty. Like the garbage that was Royal Rat Authority.
Alright, I'm convinced then. I'll go slam Rom so I can get to the fun part already.
Is there a way to cheese Edge Lord anymore? I have only beaten him one or two times since release.
Yeah I liked Vanguard because of the neat gimmick. Didn't mind authority because I had a halberd for the little rats at the start.
Rom however, even though I like horde fights was annoying to the point where I didn't like it. Random web spray with absolutely no tell/windup really grinded my gears.
For the love of god, please i need tips against Gehrman. I only manage to parry him when the scythe is not transformed and even then it's more of a luckshot. Today I got him down to like 1/4 of his health but his attacks hit WAY too hard. I got like 33 VIT but one stroke of his scythe and I'm half dead. I know he's supposed to be hard as the last boss but that shit's just impossible.
I don't believe they're inherently bad, but like you I think the tactic is more often than not used badly.
I mean, a decent example is Nito. He wasn't threatening at all once you knew his moveset.
It was the skeles that gave him any difficulty.
I always solo rom by lure killing all the spiders first, then smash rom.
Never ever have a problem. It's my "lucky" boss. You know, everyone has the one they're good at, Rom's cake to me.
I only discovered that I missed them after killing the Wet Nurse because the game seemed to be over but was very short. I didn't know about then before that point
So that might actually be a more natural progression through the game? Makes me feel a little better
I know the chime maidens shoot fireballs at you if you don't kill them.
But what do those purple orbs do that they fire into the One Reborn?
They don't heal it that's for sure.
Yeah, natural progression by someone who doesn't explore anything.
Summons a shitton and is thus funneled through a level and never gets the opportunity to go somewhere the summon knows already he cannot go.
Yeah, my experience with Rom has been mixed. The spiders deal way too much damage and take a bit of positioning to kill. And you gotta watch Rom like a hawk because the long range crystal attack will rip you apart if you're not careful.
Phalanx from Demon's Souls was better version of the fight, albeit a tad easy for being the first real boss.
I beat Gerhman by just spamming visceral attacks, I took no damage during the whole fight because it was just him attempting to attack and me whipping out my Hunter Pistol +1 and parrying him
This was the 3rd invasion I have ever done in this game, is this a regular thing? I have no idea what the hell the host was doing the whole time.
he killed me shortly after this
Hamlet is kinda of an unfair place to invade anyway, after this I got 2 host kills just by waiting at the ghost spell guys and shooting people as they ran up, they got staggered and hit by the ghosts and I finished them off. Also I find a lot of people tend to stand still when I first see them. Idk if they don't see me or are waiting for a bow but fuck that I charge attack them everytime.
didn't clear the reply thing but y'know.
Bribri just gave me a Blood Rock. What a good girl.
On another note, where's the best place to farm for radial Arcane gems?
My pleasure. I fucking love beast blood pellets.
>Select all images with street names
I'VE DONE THIS FIVE TIMES ALREADY MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT FUUUUUCK
can't believe i got stuck here for so long
I tried that but it won't work. Sometimes he gets hit by the bullet but isn't tumbling and countering with a combo that takes like 90% of my health. Other times I get him down, but am too far away.

This is so much fucking fun. It's a shame it's so difficult to get. I would have done this so, so much earlier.
God, I hope Dark Souls 3 has something similar to this. Something that allows me to transform into some kind of monster, and go FAST.
If you are close enough to him when he's rolling towards you, he'll always sword attack. Shoot him for an easy viscreal. Otherwise just summon for him, cause he's real easy to co-op due to the free refill.
You can just check your status screen unless you are trying to bypass some censor or something. You can also just help one or two anons here and ask them later.
>You can just check your status screen unless you are trying to bypass some censor or something. You can also just help one or two anons here and ask them later.
I'm level 17
Also I just made a new character with the name "cock" and it wasn't censored, which makes me believe that it may only censor for other players :(
You should've seen Gasolinetank during first weeks when people summoned him for Cleric, he aggroed on you all the time instead of enemies, then proceeded to bash every single destroyable box and coffin what was laying around
>start killing suspicious beggar
>turns into giant monster
>looks fucking awesome
I forgot what this guy looks like. It's been so long since I last seen him.
God I fucking wish Elemental Damage scaled well off of the beast claws and activated Beast Mode. I really want to make some kind of Dark Beast build.
I've got 25 STR and 50 BLT.
I want to use bloodletter purely in its transformed form.
What type of gems should I look for? I just unlocked FRC on this character.
I understand that, but if DaS 2 did anything right, it was dual wielding. I'm essentially hoping for something similar to that. But for some kind of Monster Mode.
Knuckle Dusters in DaS 2 was boring as fuck.
I hate them too, I keep to summon Henriett to help fight VA in NG+ but she just keeps getting distracted by the mobs that are on the way to the boss fight sometimes she even dies to them and I rage.
The fuck? I assume that means FRC. Coming with my arcane twink
Nope, last redditor call it quits.
Tried twinking with the church cannon? It's basically is an I win button to anything with less than 800hp and you don't even need gems for it
I'm starting to enjoy grinding the Chalice Dungeons, I think.
Eh, it's within level range. If it was the elder in a wide open room, I would have blasted him to pieces from across the room but that room is crap for ARC characters
No, it's sickle Hmmph in regular depth 5 chalice.
Yes, he's really easy with the Whirlig since it's one of the few weapon that can trade with him without worrying about his hyper armor. Combo with Executioner glove for easier wins
Or you can stack clawmarks and kill him in less than 10 visceral
>more than 4% damage increase is neglectible
There's a root izs perfect for farming blt offshapes, don't remember the glyph now, I'd have to exit the dungeon and check.
>50 hours of grinding for 4% more damage
my doll folder is lacking, pls post doll-based images
Hyper armor means you can eat certain attacks without flinching. Sickle HMMPH is one of the few bosses that has hyper armor on EVERY FRICKIN atttack in his combo which makes trading with him all but impossible. The only thing I know that consistently mauls him is Whirlig, Burial Blade L2s and HMS. Wheel is too slow to exploit the stagger
Let me boot up my PS4 again for headless. Same password? Will take longer time since I'm using SRRC
That is a fucking trick weapon, we could've had a right handed shield-rapier weapon.
imagine blocking with the right hand, and shooting adversaries with the left from behind cover
Man, SRRC sucks big dicks. You got lucky since my other character has the chalice so I'm using her right now.
It's a straight upgrade to plank and can now block annoying brocolis and Arc shit as well as regular bullets, BoM and threaded canes.
I U\used spare chunks and rock to get a hunter pistol to +10 and grabbed a very easily obtainable blt gem for it from chalice and holy fuck, it is an awesome addition for pvp. I have 7 bloodtinge yet with bone ash it still hits for ~300 damage
also I have no idea why people use the hunters bone, it does literally nothing.
Nah, that would be bullying.
You won't be able to get it until just before the final boss of the DLC.
Might as well use the repeater pistol if you want pure damage, people use hunter's bone to cut down the recovery frames on dash allowing them to spam dash attacks faster.
>You won't be able to get it until just before the final boss of the DLC.
I want it for bullying
You should stop being an asshole
Good. The scythe is fun for trades but I want big ass hits.
The thing is I don't actually have enough strength to equip it, I'd need to dump another point in. This is me right now:
A guy posted this earlier
What is he eating, is that a pthumerian delicacy of some sort?
What it tastes like?
How do they get food inside the labyrinth?
Not working. Did you put quotation marks in the password? Are you getting the beckoning message? Remove convernent runes if you are not getting messages.
Don't have the dungeon and SRRC is really slow today. Sorry, can't help
best design, loved it right from the start, in the Project Beast webms it looked like a black smog monster
I've gone through Bloodborne twice and haven't made any PvP builds yet. I have two that I'm interested in making but really don't have any idea if they'd be good, and I've tried making them stick to the BL98 meta thing posted here.
Don't mind the lack of armor, I couldn't decide fashion on either except for Ardeo on the Executioner. Also the runes are just kinda slapped on, if one of them isn't at its max level, pretend it is. What could I do to improve either of these?
Huh, interesting. I thought I accidentally invaded you as a HoH.
So this proves that you can invade as a HoH easily if you set your password to something no one else is using

The fact that you only need 5 vermin crushed to gain max rank in the confederates just shows how quickly From intended the multi player secene in Bloodborne to die off once DS3 is released in 3 months time.

I want to fuck the shit out of her. Is there any sex toy looking like her that I can anally destroy?
The bad ending to Demon souls is canon.
The great one covered the world in grey fog, bringing forth the age of dragons. Then dark souls 1 happened. The lands that used to be Boletaria became Carim, as shown by the unique fighting styles of the people in that area, which we see with the descendant, and the clothing worn by Chester and Oswald. Chester was also grabbed by an Amygdala.
Then Carim slowly became Pthumeru, and then Yharnam was built on top of its remains.
Dark souls 2 happened in a nightmare realm, as proven by the transition from earthen peak to Iron keep. The lake the bear of the curse jumps into was the portal.
>Is there any sex toy looking like her that I can anally destroy?
Bloodletting Beast hit me so hard I fell into the void and didn't even respawn back at the Lantern, I spawned back in the Hunter's Dream.
Where do darkbeasts fit into the lore? Were there special circumstances that turned a man into a darkbeast as opposed to a regular beast?
>host is standing at the gate with 2 friends
>level has been cleared
so is literally eveyr enemy in the game previously a human, they just went nuts on blood? Other than the obvious like pigs and mice and such.
What about the weird shit like the things that are made of skulls and have chests for feet in the unseen village, or giants?
I wonder that
the giant of nightmare frontier are call child of antiquity
maybe they come from a time where parasites infested humans and created darkbeasts, instead of blood, that create regular beasts

He's probably a very close follower of the teachings Logarius left behind. He probably considers himself a protegee since he's following so close to what his master taught.
Anywhere from 80 to 120 gets good amounts of PVP in my experience, go lower if you want to still be able to invade random coopers before Frontier/Mensis
Level 98 can invade 80 up to like 140 if I remember right
Comrades is there such thing as high level pvp? Like there is in souls games

Hunter's Axe. I just like axes and there's no real maces in the game except for Tonitrus and it doesn't do it for me.
Gascoigne's is solid stuff all round, but right now I'm rocking Gascoigne's coat, Cainhurst Gauntlets and Leggings with Gehrman's Cap.
I wanna say Gascoigne or Shadow of Yharnam.
Upper Cathedral Ward. Out of every single horror-tinged place in the game, only UCW actually had me on edge.
>there's no real maces in the game except for Tonitrus and it doesn't do it for me.
cheeks need to a little puffier otherwise bang on
Kirkhammer easily. HMLS close second
I just like the white church set. Use it on all my characters
I like Amelia, she's a cool cat (dog?)
Probably Arriana. I haven't rescued/interacted too much with many others
Probably Nightmare of Mensis, actually. Or Research Hall
Whirligig is the only correct answer
Madman gloves with mighty golden triangle
Either Ludwig or Gehrman
Henryk! I wish we could learn more about the cutie
Anything before killing ROM really
how DOES co op work, if i get summoned to someone else world i still do the same amount of damage as i was doing in my world of NG+3, but get the souls of like NG+
and ive had people get summoned into my game and be able to like 2 shot enemies that take me 5 hits to kill with maxed stats and +10 weapons. so i assume they are doing damage equal to their NG level. but do they still get 20K souls for easy kills because they are in my world?
and then the same for bosses, i have had people do triple my damage to bosses during fights because they must still be on NG.
how can you even pvp in cainhurst if you need to join the vilebloods to get the chikage and you need to complete alfred's quest which requires logarius to be dead as well to get the wheel
I killed Mergo's Wet Nurse and I still don't fucking understand anything
I don't understand why Hunters are turning into beasts, I don't understand why people who look like fucking hairy diseased gargoyles are calling me the cursed one and hunting hunters, I don't understand what the night of The Hunt is, I don't understand who the Mensis dude is, don't know who Rom is, don't know what hunters are, don't know what The Hunter's Dream is, don't know how to turn my character into beast mode, don't know what exactly frenzy is, don't know fucking shit m8
Bloodletter has stolen my heart recently. It's like playing a strength character on fast forward.
Old Hunter tophat + Yharnam Hunter Garb
Ludwig by far. Nothing is more fun to fight or co-op than that guy.
Eileen. I kind of wish she had been summonable, too
Nightmare Frontier. It was really neat to explore, a great 'oh shit' moment the first time you're brought there and remains the most fun invasion point.
>turning into beasts
It's a curse from the Great Ones because we misused their blood
>calling you cursed
Paleblood, alternatively, I don't know, you're an outsider
>night of the hunt
When hunter's hunt beasts
Micolash is one of the fuckers responsible for all of this happening, he found the old blood (god blood) in the labyrinths under Yharnam
Used to be a person, became a Great One, holds back the veil and stops shit from going crazy
They hunt beasts, pretty much it
Not too clear myself, but I think the Moon Presence (you'll see if you eat three Third Umbilical Cords) made it
Haven't done it myself, but I think you need to eat a beast blood pellet and wail on dudes until the little meter gets full
Literally your head exploding from eldritch information
>discovering what chalices do for the first time after beating 1/2 of the game
shiiieeeeeeeeet we gonna have some fun
Who said this wasn't good for twinking?
it's situational but fun as fuck.
k, give me a moment. I believe I have some more.
most of my videos are me drinking lead elixir and slapping around three people. I don't think anyone would like to see that. ;-;
You know what
So far there hasn't been a single boss as challenging as Manus, Sir Alonne or Fume Knight.
Probably because of the retarded number of times you can roll in succession together with rolling taking like zero stamina. Fighting Amelia in DaS1/2 would be tough
>600 watchers killed
>zero usable radials
Well the majority of people are stupid, what do you expect? For a normal human being Fume Knight isn't particularly challenging. His moves are limited and telegraphed, it's easy to learn his pattern and react.
It's still the most fun fight in DaS2 for me, though.
Orphan of Kos second form is challenging.
also STR/SKL quality and SKL/STR quality, STR/BLT, SKL/BLT, arc wheel and parasite.
build variety in Bb just dictates how niche your weapon pool will be
Beasthood is tied to the blood people in Yharnam are all crazy about injecting into themselves. It originally came from the spooky ancient labyrinth underneath the city, and one of the consequences of it being a healing panacea is that it also occasionally turns people into horribly disfigured monsters
There's a ritual going on that night in Yharnam, in secret, and a consequence of the ritual is that everybody using the blood has started going mad and becoming beasts. Like, everyone. It's a complete fucking meltdown -widespread beasthood pandemic. All of the townsfolk are in the process of turning into beasts, which is why their limbs are all elongated and hairy. They've lost their minds and just attack indiscriminately.
The night of the hunt is when a beast is found, and the women and children shut themselves indoors for safety while the rest gather together and go about purging any beast they can find from the streets. Things just didn't go as planned tonight because all of the people participating in the hunt suddenly became beasts themselves.
Mensis is a scholarly institution, like a university. They either broke off from Byrgenwerth or else just inherited its body of knowledge. Their goal is to make contact with a Great One, like they believe Laurence did before. In order to precipitate this, they conduct a ritual to bring a crossbreed baby to term (Mergo) and attempt to offer it to the Moon Presence. The MP responding to their beckoning is basically what's caused all of the crazy shit to happen.
Rom is a quasi-Great One. A human that's ascended to the status of celestial demigod, but in the process lost any semblance of sentience (hence Vacuous). It hides the Mensis ritual behind a veil of illusion so that the people of Yharnam can't see the enormous red moon descending over the city or the nightmarish Cthulhu monsters clinging to their buildings.
The Mensis ritiual must happen fairly often, monthly probably, considering the name. The night of the hunt would coincide with it as ''when the moon hangs low the line between man and beast is blurred, and a womb will be blessed with child''
It's like the church willingly condemns large portions of the populace to the hunt just to chance an alien immaculate conception.
Not the dumb faggot you replied to but this cleared up something for me and I thank you
