Would using a chikage fully upgraded but with only level 15 bloodtinge be viable? I M level 80 so it's a little late to start going bloodtinge, but I really will like this weapons moveset
what STR/ARC levels should I have if I want to do use the wheel and moonlight sword and do split damage? I was thinking around 40/40ish and putting the rest into mostly vit, and enough skill to be able to wield them both obviously.
Anyone willing to help me with Ebrietas? Isz?
The fucking cunt one-shots me with her running attack 80% of the time, all while I fail to dodging her. Every time I find a way that somehow works, it never works consecutively.
I have enough damage for her, just can't dodge her fucking running attack.
50 str/25 arc is the better path for both. You'll have good wheel in all wheel modes and good moonlight in all sword modes.
For HMLS it's also good to get 25 skill. It's like a new GSoA in terms of using lots of stats.
ANONS KEEP THE FC GOING I'M COLLECTING FOOTAGE
Not leveling up and progressing through the game for the purpose of taking the end game gear and invading people around your level, providing you an astronomically unfair advantage. Fun though
Twink in general context means having high end items in a low level area. So in BB, a lot of people stay at the minimum level to invade people that are just barely in invasion range and get +10 weapons with top tier chalice gems. Then you get goobers in this thread begging for help with chalice bosses at level 42.
Carim became Pthumeru and then Yharnam.
Chester is from an earlier pre firearm era of Yharnam.
Chester cant be soul sucked because he has insight and beast blood, not humanity and souls
Fina is the loving and embracing great one who eventually took the form of the doll.
Chester was brought to Oolacile by an Amygdala
Manus being a father of the abyss is actually his title. Manus is some kinda clieric who became a beast. Beast scourge is caused by humanity. It can both make and undo men, just like old blood.
Loran fell to the beast scourge.
Lordran became Loran. Carim became Yharnam
Twinking is hard, yo! At least I'm not getting carried. Ebrietas is the first one I've failing so hard at. Fucking charging attack.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!?!?!?!
once again thanks. also having 25 skill puts me right at the level I want to be so thanks for that too.
A friend of mine recommended me this game as he knows I'm a big fan of Lovecraft and, according to some of my researching, it seems like quite a fantastic game and I'm dying to play it, so much I actually bought it
There's only one minor issue: I'm really, really bad at action games. Even the simpler ones like God of War that boil down to mashing square as fast as I could gave me problems. I couldn't get halfway through harder ones like Bayonetta and Devil May Cry
I don't wanna just watch this game on youtube as it seems to have interesting mechanics regarding Insight (I didn't search much to avoid spoiling the story), so I came here to ask: is there guide for a strong build or some kind of cheese that might help a really bad player such as myself to get through the game? Any kind of tip would be welcome
Thanks in advance
Buy/use the hunter axe, it is one of the best weapons for beginners and can Cary you through the whole game. That's my number one tip, but I am still.kinda new myself so others in the thread might be able to help you more. I also recommend not visiting this general until you've beaten the game once, the game has amazing lovecraftian moments where the effect would be much better if had unspoiled
STR builds make Pve trivial because you can just stagger everything to death.
You can probably grab a Kirkhammer or Ludwig Holy Blade and go through the game just fine.
If anything you can just farm a bit and fight everything overleveled.
I just got to Ludwig. Is he supposed to be harder than gerhman? Anybody else having a hard time with this boss?
I have a +10 arcane cane that has arcane gems in it and having a hard time with this one.
Wanna run that by me again, game?
>HP Lovecrafts full name is actually Harry Potter Lovecraft
>JK Rowling actually used his name as her main character because she was a fan of HP Lovecraft, even going as far as copying his style of using his initials
Get the Hunter's Axe as your starter weapon, in trick mode, just use charged R2s all game long. Pump strength to 50. IF you happened to buy the DLC too, you can get the whirligig saw before fighting any DLC bosses in it, and only after a couple main game bosses. It's capable of cheesing enemies and doing insane damage. Get your Strenght stat to 50, Vitality to 50, and endurance to at the very least 25 so you have a fair amount to spam attacks with.
I wanted to do a mage build with arcane and dex. Unfortunately it seems it has the best dex/arcane scaling in the game and all the DLC weapons are strength for some reason.
And what is up with the spells the only useful ones are Augur and Exec gloves. Like is the game serious thinking Call beyond using 7 bullets is just as valuable as 7 augurs or two exec ghost blasts?
I also heard there is some good arcane stuff in this dlc but I can't get past the second form of ludwig.
I want to do a quality build next I think, my first run was Strength/Arc but was way overleved. What's a good build that lets me use most weapons? I'd like to be able to use stuff like Boomhammer but that's not 100% necessary
please respond. i want to know if i can get off of this wild wide or if the difference is significant
I'm just trying to figure out how to make these things work!
>Host still falls to the forbidden woods trap
>Gets hit by it, gets up then gets hit by the trap as it rolls off the cliff
>Level 100 and still in the forbidden woods
The thought of that is more embarrassing than getting hit by that.
Also I didn't know that but was wondering the entire time I played this game, thanks anon.
>they do some smug conviction shit
>pull out the wheel
>they start playing super defensively
Thank you for the great duels
Honorable bad ass goes to Amy Arm bro
Those damn phantom hits rekt me hard
Can't wait for next FC
WHY IS THE AMY ARM SO DREAMY?
Axe it is, then. Thank you for all the suggestions, I'll try it out
I did not buy the DLC, decided to try it before to check if it wasn't completely unplayable to me
And yes, I'll avoid lurking too much to avoid spoilers
You underestimate my capacity of being bad at games
If you can forget about Ludwig tonight I can help you first thing tomorrow morning comrade
I can't tell if it's me, you or both of us. But I'll probably reset everything if it happens more.
So I have a quick question /bbg/ and I apologize if it's a stupid one. Is there a specific bl range that's considered the "meta" that builds are important if the level cap is 544? BB's actually my first experience with the DaS style of gameplay.
Think I've got enough footage of clutch matches for about a 10-15 min vid, that a good length?
you too, gave as good as you got.
You'll get a lot of various answers to that question.
Some people will push 80, some will push for 120-150-200, but the majority of players in bbg stick around 98 for FC characters and 40s for their twinks.
I don't really get damage conversion gems and I'm too dumb to figure out the spreadsheets.
Do weapons with damage converted into, say fire, scale with anything or is it just the base damage of the weapon+whatever modifiers are on gems that explicitly affect fire damage? It seems like they lose all stat scaling and only benefit from on-element gems but that seems kind of dumb and bad, so I don't want to believe it.
I tried it in the fc and now I'm hooked, completely disregarded it at first.
>that charged R2 follow up
>that tricked charged r2 cancel game
be forewarned though it'll contain saif
>Ludwig the holy blade's theme song has an excerpt from Sif's theme song
>Sif is a beast who fights with a sword because he has learnt to fight like a human from his master
>Sif does so when he could have easily jumped on you with tooth and claw like a common lowly beast
>Ludwig is a beast who regains his humanity by picking up his sword and fighting you as a human
>he became a beast after slowly foregoing his humanity in the crimes he commited as a church hunter
its like poetry. Every stanza kinda rhymes with the last one. The doll is the key to all of this
Stick to his left
Learn to dodge his jumping attacks
Use fire paper and try a serrated weapon, if not LHB should be perfectly fine
2nd moves slower but if you had physical defense on for the first phase might wanna swap out for arc defense
Stabbing his tummy gives you 2 viscerals
If he raises his sword really high you should probably run away
I'm trying to use a FRC glyph but it says I don't meet the requirements. I already made the root chalice before so I'm not sure what's going on. I was under the impression I didn't need to beat that one first, right?
Well bros I played through the whole game except for DLC
I've heard the DLC takes the game from decent to god tier, here's hoping. It's already almost god tier for me but the lore is a little lacking in item descriptions. I don't know what the youtube faggots did to figure it out this time.
didnt think that I'd win vs church pick goldie
So, anons, what weapon did you think you'd hate, but wound up loving?
or what weapon did you think you'd love, but wound up hating?
>I was so mad that my room got about 3 degrees hotter
Also yes they're the reason I've lost about 10mil
My boomhammer is doing 989
GGs, always fun to see HMS in here.
well I did try to hit you, and then the hit came out after 2 seconds
Also another australian
0 complaints here and i live it the sticks
I want more DLC, I feel like I've done everything I can possibly do in the game and I don't want it do end ;-;
This was by far my favourite match of the FC today. Burial Blade mirror matches make my dick rock hard, man.
Tfw you've become a pvp parry God and roll through all the magic until they have no choice but to swing at you
AND WHEN THEY DO, pic related
To fuck you
I posted this in the last thread but it deserves a repost
>They took the golf swing out of DS2 because of salty butthurt iron keep duelists
I really hope DS3 is patched with the same philosophy as BB. Unless something is outright fucking broken give the community time to adjust to it and counter it.
Why are all co-opers so useless in the Ludwig the Acursed fight?

/Bbg tell me I'm not the only one
I was doing more damage w/ the bloody cane at 35 skill and mid gems than I am with 35 blt and chik. This is cold hard fax. and I didn't lose access to my pistol and slowly lose health with the cane, either. The increased gun damage isn't worth it, even with bone marrow ash.
>HMLS Hyper stab hit over 1k

Not even hard, just so damn annoying.
>invade Mergo's for half an hour

I just wanted to have some fun.
I know it's possible to get circle gems to drop offshape as, say, a radial, but can you get a radial gem to drop as a circle?
Basically I want to know if I can, through Korean magic, get flat elemental damage on a gun
Why are pick duels so much fun?
>that quick L2 that catches you off guard
>untricked stabs and swipes
>Charging an R2 and following with that golf swing
shit's fast and loose and i love it.
Can I get some help with ludwig? I'm level 50 but my Vit was 11 because I was worried I'd do no damage if I didn't sink it all into BLT. It's my second character but I forgot that Vit's important in this game.
that was a short blast for me
I had to go lift furniture most of the day
my exploding knees started really creakin when I got too excited
i started pure skill and got it to 30 before deciding i wanted the chikage, so i started just slapping points into bloodtinge and now i have 32 in both while my vit is at 18, usually i have at least 24 by this point.
Th-Thanks. I also have a blonde and a brunette character with the same face.
Just finished my first playthrough. Enjoyed the shit out of this, felt refreshing after ds2.
I'm going to start looking into getting into the pvp side of things but does my first character look salvageable? Level 75 atm
Thinking I get vitality up to 40 and get bloodtinge to 25?
Using as weapons the gunrapier, evelyn and either the beast cutter or that whirly chainsaw thing.
How do I create an acceptable face for my character? I spent about an hour the other day and ended up just deleting the character because it looked dreadful.
Yes, the looks matter very much.
You still got enough points to get 40 VIT and that's enough for PvP. Your damage stats are shit except for quality builds so either pick STR weapons or SKL Weapons. Bear in mind that viscreals scales with SKL and STR weapon has Abyssal gems to send their AR skyhigh.
>ringing my bell to help with ludwig

>he gets fucking pancaked for all his health
>I laugh loudly and send him a message saying sorry
Today was a good day
The thing about Bloodtinge is it's pretty much only usable as a main stat. It's not like Dark Souls where you could do a Str/Int build, if you want that you're looking to do Arcane. they're flipped in a way, Arcane is more like INT and Bloodtinge is more like Faith
>that pike R2 follow
Dayum nice, now put on some pants.
Would you guys mind this as a song for an FC video? Im making one and I want it to be enjoyable
Got it, thanks guys.
I leveled bloodtinge to use the evelyn, So I guess I'm taking a hit on strength or skill because of it.
Problem is I love the Rieter but then I found the beast cutter and whirlygig and i'm torn on which way to roll
Had a fun FC, thanks for the games, dudes. Was fun trying out the boomhammer today, did pretty well too, I believe I won most of my fights. But sometimes
sometimesit just feels hopeless against good players. ;_;Had a blast either way. Hoping to see y'all again next FC for the free insight scrubadoos.
I was going to go full blown "anime" priest glasses, but I guess that's not so smart considering the hat options.
That was my first Hunter anon, when all else fails go for cute girls with ponytails.
The ponytail goes perfectly with a lot of the hats.
I need more than one opinion on this>>128074627
Is the beast cutter considered blunt or serrated damage?
>tfw fc matches are tense and tight thanks to no-heals and blood bullets
>tfw most 40 to 60 second fights contain prime webm material
To think reddit supports healing and 150 trash
Well i dont have the video so its hard to compare
The Qemests - lost weekend
Pendulum - Propare nightmares (or maybe the celdweller remix)
Pendulum - Masochist
Prodigy - Omen or breathe as a classic
BMA only affects guns.
The jump cheese works on Defiled Amy if you are solo.
Hate all you like, but I am Lucy, Destroyer of Ludwig.
Alternatively, you could help him instead.
I'm gonna be starting my Maria build tonight, lads. Hope this is looking good.
Which NG should I be PVPing at, and which location?
That's it for me for now. Glad I got the day off and could join in for the FC.
Plenty of good fights.
Damn, that fucking sucks. Thanks again though, been sitting here for 2 or 3 hours against that asshole. I actually got invaded as soon as i lit that lamp and lost all of those echoes, but i can still nab them so it's not that bad
I didn't even know she used evelyn since she only ever pulls her gun out for 0.1 seconds
just use hunters pistol and stay transformed %99 of the time, otherwise you're wasting like 10 levels for virtually nothing
it doesn't matter if you are ng or ng+ and beyond in this game, even if you are in ng you'll get matched with people in ng+. that being said, I found the fishing hamlet and the hunters nightmare to be a nice place for pvp.
my save file got corrupted just after i finished the game
>tfw most of my matches were so short that I could fit the entire fight comfortably into a webm
My longest matches today were against that jp guy with the Boomhammer and Markus, with the Whirlygig. Both were fun as fuck.
I probably got enough footage from today's FC to make my own short video, actually. Shame I don't have any real video making software aside from fuckin' Windows Movie Maker.
it is situational but not useless. If you ever back someone into a corner via beast roar its a good way to do damage that can't be parried and keep them in the corner. Also it keeps people on there toes. It is a pretty good attack to use on crowds of mobs too.
It's fun and scales well with BLT. Might as well use it if you're a BLT build.
I believe you can win against rakuyo. There probably only two-three fags who good with rakuyo in FC. But if you really want ez win - use shield. It's pretty unfair agains them
Reminder that when you sit down it takes a long time to get back up
aight /bbg/ i think we need another arena, I'm going over some fc footage and it's a bit too dark even with brightness at 10, pull the bell maiden's chime disrupts any music you'd wanna lay over it, she's too close to the arena.
I agree but only because srrc fags are annoying
the brightness is fine and the bell ringer doesn't matter if you turn the sound down on the BB clips and leave the music volume up
My church pick nigga. Laurence hitting like a fucking freight train and that aggro trading. Good co-op, would play again.
is it wrong that i get annoyed at summoners that stand on the other side of the room and don't even try to help? I understand they are scared of dying but fuck me man
>some BLT shitter who summons me for Defiled Amy
>Stands on the other side of the room while I do all the work with my arc build
>die to a jump attack
>get summoned again by this faggot
>he stands on the other side of the room again
>Immediately silencing blank out of that fuckheads world
Fuck anyone who does this seriously
>Current HMLS with gems often leaves my foes with a sliver of HP left after two swings
>equip fist of gratia
>punch everything to death after smacking with my sword
This is kind of fun, actually.
I was super close again but he pushed me into his lavabeam and it killed me, I have his attacks down to a key though, as long as his hitbox or camera don't fuck me again I'll win
Amy is the one boss you should not co-op. Literally, every other boss is fair game.
Use the Jump Cheese:
You should be able to get it in one try every time. The jump cheese does not work in co-op because she can change targets mid jump, and she will end up crushing you most of the time even if you stand still.
Use stake driver and move up to beast claws
Adjust to your level liking vit always taking the role of most important stat str second end last. Fun as fuck
Don't bother trying to reason with it, anon. I'm ringing right now, but SRRC is taking its sweet time connecting us.
If you want to do it the boring way, after you get him to phase 2 you can run away until he does the lava spit and then dip in for a hit or two. Rinse and repeat until dead. But that's lame as hell, so do whatever works for you.
o good it looks like i'm not being irrational. i have to say though originally i thought ludwig users being shitters was just an exaggeration. literally 9/10 bad hosts use ludwigs. I also have seen nothing good come from chikage users either.
Finally my anime priest is complete! His shoulder's are a little big, but I think he looks acceptable enough.
Is the cane the only skill weapon for early game? I want to go skill this time, but I am not a fan of the cane.
I don't remember where I got any of my weapons, please help.
Other than that I just gotta get to Gascoigne's coat and I'm set.
You can do it anon. I managed to beat him for the first time on NG+ myself, although I died quite a bit.
He isn't as hard as he seems.
Well I never finished it to be honest got to vit 50 end 12 30 str and 13 skill and just stopped. Since It felt really good for semi twink invading and gets me the win 8-9/10 ten times. It would help if I got the best gems and put on a chest piece since at that level I'm fighting up to 108 or so but fuck it I usally pull out the win.
play how u want, just sayin the scaling is only equal for ludwigs, everything else is weighted quality and those two are str heavy (though the SD is almost even, the claws are not)
Glad I stopped the build mid way then. Motherfucking youtubers probably just use the same quality build for everything. Thanks man I really treasure my beast claws character.
>do lower pthumeru layer one watchers

I'm pretty fucking pissed at this. this is the first time anything super fucky has happened to me in BB and i hope this trend doesn't repeat itself. My echoes just weren't in the room.
Does pvp happen much at 250 outside of arenas? I've heard people mention it but don't know if its worth the time to grind up that high, though it might be nice to have one character with all hard caps for build testing in general i guess
Anyone know why my PS4 always says that my USB is full even though it has 6GB free?
I can't even copy more than 1 screenshot at a time.
Alright, I'll try that one out. Thanks man.
Thanks I never really got that hard into grinding for gems but I'll look into it right now I'm just rolling with the 22% gems. But more damage does sound appealing. But even with 22% its working really well for invades.
23.1% ARC radials drop from CRF Isz asshat hunters (glyph in OP). 27.2% ARC triangles from 5pwuj. If you're going to farm korean offshape ARC radials Ebrietas is the boss to do that on. You'd only get 1.7% extra damage though
8.5/10 liked all of it but wanted more
especially a full astral clocktower zone, having two boss fights back to back was a nice change of pace but I wanted to ascend a fucking clocktower god damnit
