Posting it again on this new thread because the old one died before I posted my question:
Is the Church Pick worth using on PvP? Is it any good? I have 0 experience with it, but I was thinking about using it as a sidearm to my Saif.
Anyone mind helping me with the darkbeast? Ringing right by the boss
Anyone able to help me with chalice rom? (Layer 3)

What's a fun weapon to use, /bbg/? I've already used the Beast Cutter, The Axe, Kirk, Cane, both saws, pizza cutter, the arm and the beast claws. I prefer to play aggressively and I like damage and combos.
Hello this is my Hunt Cunt
his name is Shekel Snatcher
So what were you trying to accomplish. Making me feel good about my shitty waifunter?
>fighting the watchers in Isz for Arcane gem
>over and over and over
This is my first time farming gems. Is it actually this fucking awful and tedious?
Just posting the best Waifu Hunter to ever grace these generals.
>Is it actually this fucking awful and tedious?
Yes even more so for ARC builds, can get just as bad or worse for BLT builds
>This is my first time farming gems.
Man, you should have tried anything but ARC your 1st playthru
Go here: FRC ISZ - glyph fnh9ctui
On layer 2 near lantern there's one red aura cleaver watcher.
He drops tier 18 triangles, one tier lower then watcher bosses but dies in seconds and respawns using hunter's marks.
Tier 18 = 26.3%.
>don't even have to shill my own video
Is Burial Blade any good?
I'm mostly Arcane, but I've been slowly moving into Skill for my Fire Church Pick. I've been meaning to use it for ages, because I love what it looks like, and it looks like it has a pretty nice moveset.
It's not worth the frustration farming them, just make chalices constantly and bring some company, just have a comfy time and not worry about tier 19 gems, because you'll get them eventually either way.
How does it stack up in terms of damage? And is the arc of fire good or bad?
It's alright, good for OHKO's. Also nice for PVE large enemies/ bosses.
I like it anyway.
I've never used it in PVP. But it's an amazing weapon. Has both Serrated and Piercing, making it amazing for both beasts and Kin. It also has the Church Bonus. Making it for any Cainhurst enemies.
Honestly one of the better weapons in the game.
I use two of them on NG++ with three Fire Gems. And the other with Two Bolt Gems and Arcane Scaling
Beasts are seen as a plague, and Great Ones are seen as the next step in evolution/superior beings.
The cannibal beggar has accepted beasthood, but I don't think anyone is actively attempting to become a beast.
Thanks. This is good stuff, though the music choice took a nosedive near the end there.
>fought literally every person in the video

BB's matchmaking is weird. I knew there were more people at the FC.
How do I not enter NG+?
I've only completed the game once just the other day. And I didn't mean to enter NG+ because there was a tonne of stuff still left to do.
Now Gehrman wants to talk to me again, and I've eaten the three umbilical cords. What do I do now?
I don't want to go to NG+ and I want to fight moon presence.
it can work
You can get great combos with it due the l2 poke, you can follow those up with any of the other attacks easily. I think the first r1 in regular mode is just a thrust so you have to be wary about the ease of which enemies can side step it.
If you just want to stay in NG, fight Gehrman, then mark out or get killed when Moon Presence appears.
If you want to fight Moon Presence without going to NG+ you have to backup your save to PSN or USB, then restore after the fight.
Brador's set description basically tells you his backstory; the pelt he wears is the one he ripped off of a fellow cleric, who Brador killed right as he transformed. I don't think he has an interest in becoming a beast, I think he wears it in memory, or perhaps as a trophy.
>not listening to itaots while playing Bloodborne
The firing arc is good and the damage isn't much worse than the regular Cannon. Only "issue" is the fact that it also requires SKL to wield while the regular Cannon doesn't, but the cheaper ammo requirement pretty much offsets the flaws.
>not listening to eits while playing BB
>Kill gherman, die to moon presence.
>Copy savegame to usb stick

I figure I'll just get the extra 2 points needed to stay at BL 117 from VIT since 48-50 vit with 10% rune makes only a 1.7% difference in total HP, verses locking out one of the few STR/BLD weapons in the game that could be very viable on this build
Yeah, but it's better to just get other gems on those weapons. Most of them suck with Arcane, have low scaling. With the exception of one or two.
I mean almost exclusively Arcane Scaling. Just like the Ayy Lmao. Only for something that's an actual weapon.
yeah and what happened?
all the executioners died except for Alfred and Longarius who fucked off and the other became a zombie seal who gets his ass kicked by some wandering hunter
knowing how mortals are, the executioners only manged to barely win by zerging hard LOL
not to mention there are cainhurst knights wandering in chalice dungeons
I got no idea, it's probably random but the ones I have in my inventory are.
Fire ATK +27
Fire ATK UP +8.1%
Bolt ATK Up+4.1%
All that I know of are the Bone Ash Huntresses, the Cainhurst Knights, Queen Killers, Tomb Prospectors, and the Beastly Hunters. Basically every faction but Mensis, Confederates, and HoH are represented in some capacity.
What? Theres literally only 1 vileblood and 1 executioner in the game.
Crowsteel and Alfred.
Both end up dying if you do it all right
Stalemate is still victory for executioners, because their sole purpose is to stop vilebloods. And logarius stopped them. You cant say "Oh the PC makes the vilebloods win" because then I can just say well on my pc I let alfred smash annalise and kept her gooey chunks in my pocket forever
>get 12% gems from the start of the dlc
>get all chunks available before rom
>build up beast meter to 75% by killing first spider wave while rom is docile
>kill rom before he even gets to teleport
Logarious is the only thing stopping more vilebloods from being created. As soon as he is dead, he failed because the Queen is set free. She is literally unkillable. Containing her was the only way of keeping her in check.
Doesn't matter if you revive her or not. She is still alive. It's likely that she would reconstitute. Even if she didn't, all it would take is a bit of her blood getting into someone else to start a new wave of vile bloods being created,
Anyone able to help me with chalice rom? (Lower pth Layer 3)
Ringing at lamp
Apologies for the delay, but someone asked for sliders yesterday. Hopefully they see this.
Also, anyone have any good male faces? I'm trying to make a Ludwig character, but I'm bad at this.
yeah, and instead of being cursed they can have benefits like +flat attack
really good for taking down ludwig early because the only better gems are in unseen village 2.0/ mensis
r8 this fukken fashion m80s
So how was Rom keeping the Mensis ritual sealed/hidden?
Why does the Good Hunter kill Rom? Why does Willem point him in the direction of the lake, knowing that Rom was the only thing keeping all hell from breaking loose?

It gets old fast. It's also painfully cheesy.
I'm not doing arc, pure skill and going for Rakuyo. Got her to about 20% then boned a dodge and got wombo'd to death. Don't have the chunks to try and bring up another weapon for the one fight, spear's been doin aight so far.
If this was my old str character's damage output she'd be dead already.
He and his group of friends came to Yarhnam to kill something, and everybody but him ended up dying
In either rage or madness or bloodlust or all three, he ended up killing the beast and literally eating all of it.
So hes probably bloodcrazed af f a m

Dude's crazy, old, eats beasts, and can't see vermin anymore. Then after you come along and show an aptitude for killing vermin, he vanishes, leaving the his helm and the league in your hands.
Never give up the fight, good hunter.
I cleared it on one try with my last two characters. Once you know how to make sure you only fight one enemy at a time it's really not that bad (just don't take a lot of insight in if you can help it).
If you're up for well runs that'd be cool. I don't have any shaman blades for some reason though. I'll ring in a minute

Uh, I dunno if anyone let you in on a little secret, but there's only ever one sanctioned HoH at a time. Eileen had that duty, then passed it down to you, and tells you that you can refuse to take the mantle. Hard to be a traitor when you're told pretty explicitly that you don't have to follow the cause.
And for good reason.

So after being stuck on blood starved beast for two days, I defeated Amelia my first try. Ludwig's Holy Blade is pretty good I guess?
What are some other good weapons to use for a quality build? I currently have saw cleaver as my backup.

I should be good to solo everything else. I did OoK with the Rakuyo on a 50str/25dex build before just because I liked how the weapon felt so much. It's why I'm making this character actually
We've already established that Crowsteel is a minmaxing faglord who gives no thought to what he wears/uses. He's better left stuffed under the rug and forgotten. Unless you also want to say he's with the Church due to his repeating pistol, or that he was an old hunter because he uses the bone.
>Not bell maidens that spawn bell maidens which spawn more bell maidens that spawn winter lanterns,roms,celestial emissaries and witches of hemwick that spawn Mad ones,celestial mobs and spiders.
There's only ever one HoH at a time, they all use the BoM and bear the Crow Hunter badge, of which there are only one of each. The fact that the DeviantArt OC wears a crowfeather coat says literally nothing when he also uses a ton of random bullshit that clash with the whole Vileblood thing he's got going on.
You can stop shitposting now.
I KEEP GETTING OUTSKILLED BY PEOPLE DASHING A LOT
In all likelihood this is probably what Fromsoft intended, sort of a jab at minmaxers in general using all sorts of shit that make no sense when put together. It's probably no coincidence that what he wears gives good all around defense, paired with the highest damage gun, extra speedy dashes, and a weapon with insane DPS.

I feel a bit stuck
I killed Gasoline and the Bloodstarved beast, but I'm not sure where to go from there. I climbed what looked like the top of a tower that was full of enemies, but the door near the end was locked
I got these badges and I'm not sure what to do with them either, like the powder keg and 2 sword ones. what are these for?
drop down the tower for some classic souls platforming
I'm in NG+ right now and I realised my character is probably fucked in more ways than one seeing people here and there talk about builds and stuff. Should I start a new character and follow a guide or something? I'm also pretty sure I missed a bunch of shit too.
Arcane is very possible, he's just being silly. A lot of weapons can be made arcane and while they won't have quite the AR a STR/SKL build will they'll exploit elemental weaknesses and are supplemented by the tools.
Kos parasite is pretty good.
Dude, thank you so much fellow Arcbro.
I've been getting kuckt in Korea for a few days now trying to gem out my Kosm parasite.
I did get a really lucky offshape waning drop from the bone ash hunter in Isz, 23% Arc and +14 physical dmg, and I accidently'd a lost parasite to +10 instead of an uncanny one and now all I need is a decent triangle and I have a good radial and I'm really happy about my lucky kucky offshape drop and thus concludes my secret blog
Yes, it's possible. And it's insanely easy. My first ever playthrough was Arcane, and honestly, I felt it was the easiest out of all of my playthroughs.
Short version is;
>kill up to Bloodstarved beast (third boss)
>get his chalice and go to first chalice dungeon and kill last boss of the first one. (Hot Dog) to get Fire Gem
>put it on your Saw Cleaver or Saw Spear, you now have your main beast killing weapon
>refresh the chalice dungeon if you want two fire gems early on
>if not, go kill Amelia with your Fire Saw Cleaver, hitting for like 300 a hit at level 20 is pretty funny
>never do anything but put points into Vit and Arcane, and only get End to 15 or 14
>after amelia, go to the altar to get the password to enter the forbidden forest
>rush to where patches is hiding and grab that item he gives you
>and run through the secret passage to the side to rush the arcane gem in the tunnel with all the leeches and that poison lake
>then take the item patches gave you and enter the lecture hall. When in there grab Augur. It will be your first spell, and one of your best. It's amazing.
>after that, make your way to Nightmare Frontier and farm the three beasts at the beginning with your Fire Cleaver. They should die in one shot, and they drop Fire and Bolt Gems.
>get a good roll on a fire gem and a good roll on a Bolt gem and make your fire weapon stronger, and get a nice weapon for your arcane and bolt gems.
>now you have all three main resistances covered, go to yahargul, kill that abomination thing and make your way to the celestial emissary. It's first phase is weak against fire, so hit it a few times for about 500 a hit, then change to Lightning when it changes phase and hit it again for about 500 a hit
>laugh as you kill it in about 10 seconds, then destroy the glass wall behind the bonfire and walk to the right and you'll get the strongest spell in the game, A Call from Beyond
>Congratulations, now you can spam that on every boss and win easy mode
Ok so I just restarted my ruined bloodtinge build, and I'm back at BSB. I can tell this is going to use a shit tonne of my vials and fire papers, so if a kind anon would like to help and get some ezpz insight
>pass is bbgbsb
>waiting outside chapel
You kill those beasts twice and you get two gems. It's not farming.
And if it's your first time playing, or you're still rather new, which that anon clearly was. It's the easiest way to get a circle fire gem or bolt gem.
What is the best Kos Parasite? Original, Lost or Uncanny?
And what gems should I be using for it? Straight out Arcane %? If so, where can I get them really easy?
I finally got my parasite. But I've no idea what to do now
LHS in trick mode. You agro him and just fuck around the door and at the turn in his corridor, back and forth. Charge R2 when you are not in his LoS and he is coming towards you. It's a bit annoying but I did it around lvl 25-30 too.
Those fire RADIALS don't compare to depth 1 hotdog's and especially not to the mobs that drop cursed fire radials in CDs.
There is also no need to farm for bolt radials now that we have access to hamlet 20.3s and there's nothing in the rest of the main game that resists fire enough to make it worth farming NF bolt radials.
And you didn't mention picking up gloves in cainhurst.
Go home christmasbabby
Not that anon, but where the hell do you find Radial Arcane Gems then? I'm still attempting to get my Parasite.
I know where to get a tier 18 Arcane. But then what else?
Is there a website dedicate to this sort of stuff? The wiki is fucking terrible when it comes to gems.
Wheel (STR focus)
Which is more fun? I want a need build but Church Pick/Rakuyo/Bloodletter are too far into the DLC and there's no way I'll make it through without having to beat pretty much the entire game to get them. I'm hoping to get something I can use through the main game too.
>tfw exhausted after beating Rom for the first time
>come back to Grand Cathedral to see Eileen lying outside in a pool of blood
>can't take vengeance on the weeaboo crow faggot because his x10000000000000 folded katana keeps wrecking me
>bloodborne pvp matches can last for 10+ minutes if you both heal
Why do people hate this again? Long drawn out pvp matches are the best. Nothing is better than going into a fight and coming out of it alive using every single trick and item.
Holy Moonlight Sword.
It's fucking awesome and hilarious fun in both PVP and PVE. Most Alien Bosses you just select the head and shoot beams at it, then heavy attack when they fall over. And in pvp, a lot of the time you bait them into attacking you with beams, then spam the transform for like 500 a hit.
Beastcutter in my opinion is boring as fuck. Just a large whip. Boom Hammer sucks dick and has an extremely limited moveset. Wheel is great, but I still prefer HLMS
In idea for another day, I've already died on the way to the Saw spear.
Valtr is probably one of the most powerful human characters in Yharnam if that story is to be believed. Think of all the fucking blood echoes you must get from eating the entirety of a boss monster, in addition to the fact that he fucking crushed it himself. I mean hunters themselves might as well be crazy super humans but Valtr's story in particular makes him seem pretty scary.
Because it's wasteful and I don't want to keep going back to the dream to replenish vials.
Plus it's boring as hell and some builds are better at punishing healing than others.
If you've got the patience, Church Pick is easy enough to get. Honestly, call in a co-operator if you don't have the patience to get Failures and Maria down and then make a bee line for Simon in the hamlet and get the key, then rush Brador's cell for Bloodletter.
Oh yeah well normally I heal in regular invasions anyway unless the host is cool and making it obvious that he isn't going to heal (if he is still fighting with 200HP or something) then I usually just play along.
I like it when they heal. Makes defeating them more fun. When I first started playing, I usually ended up wasting blood vials to heal from invaders but that's just wasteful. Better to just duke it out and hope for the best and then continue on your way if you win or lose.
What are the two best Radials for Kos Parasite?
Though I don't want to Korean tier farm for them. Just run in, kill a few enemies, and get them. At most, I'd be willing to farm for max of two hours.
Doesn't need to be best tier. Just good enough for PVP
I need to get better at this hit them with the beam to stop em from healing
Which character did you want to hug the most?
I felt really sorry for the old woman
Does anyone have an infograph or a video on the timeline of the series of events happening in Bloodborne? From the Fishing Hamlet raid to Kos being so relevant, to Ebreitas and all. Just everything
>Better to just duke it out and hope for the best and then continue on your way if you win or lose.
This unless you got a fuckton of echoes on you, which if you do, you shouldn't probably shouldn't be in the right conditions for invasions anyways.
someone please answer my call for assistance
could be worse, could be really dodgy fucks that wont stop until they're completely safe to heal
this guy had me completely deplete his vials
I need to improve more
not to mention its too hard to resist trying to finish people off with L2 stab
IF YOU LIKE THAT
YOU'RE GONNA LOVE THIS
>Lady Maria specifically wanted a weapon that didn't use blood
>When you fight her, she turns her weapon into a blood-based one.
>This represents how you're actually fighting her corpse, as her ideals are long dead.
Shit, I never caught that before.
Absolutely not. LHB has the strongest AR in the game. No other weapon in the game has as good stats as that weapon. So if that's all you care about, pick that weapon.
That being said, you connect with a charged attack and a beam at the same time and you'll be hitting harder than LHB.
I still prefer Moonlight. It's just straight out funner to use. You'll get LHB tier damage if you get the best gems in the game, but because it's split between two modifiers, it will be slightly lower.
and its not even the power of her weapons fueling those blood attacks
shes just a distant cousin of cainhurst royalty
something tells me the mask annalise wears also limits her power too
makes you wonder what the REAL power of both executioners and cainhurst where
considering longarius and maria's boss fights
>Lady Maria threw her Rakuyo down the well
>She still has it when you fight her
What does it mean?
Queen killer doesn't live long enough and severed arms block half my backsky shots pls halp
whenever I'm arcane I just use the messengers gift, hide under a corpse and walk away for 15 minutes to go get a snack
or if I really don't want to fight, because the game issues a pre-connection adversary message, I can just quit game before they even load in
It's Santoz stream I think judging by the names. He's a faggot crybaby that cries like a little bitch when he dies saying the game is bullshit. Plus he said BB speedrunning is p2w (think it was him)
that would be an offshape
But you wouldn't want that gem anyway. For fire/arcane you want
2 cold abyssal radials with open attack
1 27.2 elemental triangle of your choice
For bolt you want
1 cold abyssal radial with open attack
1 cold abyssal triangle with +15 bolt
1 bolt abyssal with flat bolt
It's Santzo, and if you take the salty comments he makes when he loses a run seriously you're not going to have a high opinion of him. I've never heard him say anything about BB runs being pay to win, but it might have something to do with SSDistortion.
That's like saying any game on PC at all is p2w.
That's on the level of Bloodborne is p2w because I have to purchase the game and a PS4 to speedrun it.
I already hate this guy. Sign me up for the hate club. I'm already a member of the Luci section so you should just be able to copy my credentials over.
No i just dont care for speedruns anyway they are all the same boring shit. Id rather see different kind of runs like pistols only or that whore who defeated Orphan with torch only and women cant even play video games so fuck knows how she did it
What's the recommended stat spread for the HMS?
I know it's kind of a Quality weapon, but I do wanna make decent use of the Arcane.
>now at 30+ tempering gems in a row
>only arcane gem that dropped before that was atk down
patch that lets you change what gem you get based on type of damage you're doing to enemy when?
Ok cool, because I found this
Cursed Arcane Damp Blood Gem (6)
Arcane ATK UP+27.2%
Increases stamina cost 3%
Got it like 3rd try on watchers with a character that doesn't even use arcane. Just though it was a bit odd since all I see most of the time is tempering phys%
I beat it thanks to queen killer and no thanks to you.
>Get through most of the chalice grind in one night
I feel like I'm getting good at this, all I got left is Ihyll.
The new NG+ stuff made things so much easier.
Might go with the first one, as my Arcane is sitting at 20 currently.
Also, exactly what parts of the HMS utilize Arcane as its damage source? Is it just the energy waves, or does the whole transformed state rely on it?
Damn I only have the WiiU version
This guy got his brain sucked 4 more times after this.
So quality with a favoritism towards STR is the way to go? Neato.
I'm glad they added this weapon. I never really bother with magic stuff in the Souls series, always more of "boring knight" kind of guy, but I thought I'd give it a bash and I've been pleasantly surprised by it so far.
It's a glitch that can happen there. Been happening for a while now, the shadows don't actually pop up though.
Also apparently if you fight Rom with this glitch then there's like 4 health bars and the shadow of yharnam music starts playing instead of Rom's.
saif is probably the most viable candidate for extra flat damage from abyssals because of its shit multipliers, so let's use that
at 50 arc with 2 open-foe abyssals and 22.5% + 33 flat from abhorrent, you've got 599 AR using what we'll refer to as setup A
with one of those open-foes swapped out for flat 15 bolt, you've got 614 with setup B
landing a counter-hit with setup A will make your damage calculation begin with 599 * 1.1056 * 1.1056 = 668
likewise, with setup B, your damage calculation begins with 614 * 1.056 = 648
assuming at least half (around 47%, more accurately) of your attacks are counter-hits, which is very common given how pvp often goes down and especially true for something like saif, setup A outdamages setup B
look at the str/skl ratios in pic related
if the smaller of the two is at least half of the greater, it's a good choice for a weighted quality build
if it's one third of the greater ratio, it's still worth considering
if it's less than one third, it's probably better used on a pure build
>not counter hit city
lmao, I'm in 6cb
