Why does everyone call Crowsteel edgy when Maria is WAY more stereotypical and silly than him? Seriously, she's got:
>oversized double katana of dark edgeblood powerup triggered by impaling herself
>silly condescending intro dialog about freeing you by killing you, (nothin personnel... hunter...)
>dark bloodstrike chaoswave black magic
>le dies irae bossfight music
plus everything Crowsteel already has.
All she's lacking to be a standard JRPG boss is to have ten angel wings sprout out of her ass mid-fight.
Make him shoot other people.
Different guy, but mine, which was to the point I could gem farm and was also to Gehrman in the main game, took me 18 hours
on an arc build.
The stuff of nightmares, eh? The floor is oil and two out of those three giants had cannons.
FUN TIMES FOR ALL!
Oh god, mercifully no. But there was a little hunched-over ritekeeper in the room before that big one, and one of the other paths had a shit ton of Pthumerians and one Pthumerian with a lantern that would rouse them all.
It was terrifying.
Get off your phone, please.
I don't know why you're killing Cleaver/Cannon, anyway, he doesn't drop higher than 29/30% adept gems. I farmed him with someone for a couple hours about 2 months after BB's release.
I hope you're just going through a chalice.
Also, they're all easy compared to 2chainz variant.
You're asking for help after trying once and 'getting bored'?
Sounds more like you're impatient.
From the goodness of my soul, I'd help, but I'm not home.
So how to use Chalices and and graves ?
Am I supposed to make my owns or can I just download someone else's dungeon. Will I miss something if I do this ?
And what's the difference between Phtumerian dungeons and the other ones ?
Is there an end to dungeons or is it a way to keep the game unlimited ?
ball & chains is the easiest in my opinion, after finding out that you can lock him into spinning if you stay agressive on his back. He is tedious as fuck though.
The problem with the cannon version is his instantaneous close range cannon shot which can only be avoided reliably by constantly backing away from him. It's a horrible fight
So, if she's alive, needs to breathe and sleep, and can even shed tears, Doll probably also needs to pee, right? Yet we never see her go to the bathroom or even relieve herself in the garden.
What's her secret?
do people even play ng+ ? I'm already in the middle of it and I couldn't find anyone to summon or to summon me
>__ is the easiest
>no, __ is the easiest
>no, __ is the easiest
We can all agree Undead Giants are the worst bosses in the game though, right?
Co-op is only affected by BL, not NG+ levels. You must be over/underleveled for where you are. It's also a bad time to be online.
>Where are you Laurence, I can't do it without you
What did he mean by this?
Anyone willing to help a poor bastard against Defiled Hotdog?
If so, Pass is gbb
>inb4 'just boop the nose lol'
With at least 19% gems, serrated weapon, and bolt paper, you'll only do aboug 100-150 less damage a swing than this depending on your level.
>for where you are. It's also a bad time to be online.
Is this the best OST of all time?
>Loran Darkbeast at level 4
I want to kill myself
Can we all agree on that the Paleblood stands for Paleblood Moon? The note in the clinic and the workshop would therefore imply that we need to seek the blood moon, secretly referring to the MP.
I have after they make me wait forever.
I'm assuming they're waiting for a 3rd, but I'm always attacking them, the fog, and pointing to the boss to get the point across.
Same for those fags that I get when SRRChing and they go straight into bonus rooms and fuck around.
You're thinking in the basest of planes, anon. What you need are more memes.
They really hit it out of the park with this Hunter's Dream, Nightmare ie Yharnam, Nightmare Frontier, Nightmare of Mensis, night of the Hunt bullshit.
I have no fucking clue who is awake and who is asleep and what is really happening
Forgot to make this a webm from the latest Fight Club
Nah, I'm not an egotistical tripfaggot.
So is Mensis at odds against the church? I mean there is a member of the Choir locked in a cage in Yahar'gul
Choir attire description says they're the highest echelon of the Healing Church and continue the work from Byrgenwerth, same as how Mensis continues the work from Byrgenwerth.
I reckon they got competitive.
I can't wait for the roleplaying thread on /v/!
Nose bop is safer, easier, and more intuitive. The only difference is that the nose bop strategy takes an extra minute or so.
Not even close. The OST is pretty lack luster, actually.
That wasn't me.
Only when summoned for Defiled Amy.
No, it refers to the sky after killing Rom. Seeking the Pale Blood means - go kill rom, to reveal the pale blood sky, i.e. reveal the ritual so that you can stop it.
You should cut your resolution down to 640 x 360. It will make it look better
The fireball witches are fucking awful
Since everything gets increasingly fukt up the closer you get to Micolish's mummified corpse, I'm guessing he is the cause of all this bullshit? Especially since going into his head causes you to encounter "the source of the spreading scourge"
So, he is some Mensis school bigshot?
Whats up with these guys? It looks like they crashed like a meteor would or something
What the fuck were you doing attacking them from the front? You'd think you'd learn your lesson after the first time.
I'm assuming that's not the first time you died that way because complaining about dying to something for the first time would make you look even more retarded.
Okay bud, tell me when you start ringing.
Reminder to ignore all Lucy and Lucy-tier posts.
Part of the ritual. You can also lure the Mobile Home Nitos into them to do a lot of damage to them.
Technically, even talking about me with out quoting me is drawing attention to me. Instead, why not just filter me if you don't like me. It would be better for everyone involved and less disruptive to the thread.
>TL;DR: stop trying to derail the thread
>pop a pellet and use a 8+ chik with okay gems
>kill The One Reborn in 30 seconds
I've never killed him that fast before. I usually get to the good part of the boss music before I even get him to half health.
Most games today are geared towards casuals. If you want a real challenge then try playing God Hand.
>blood bullet so it's a fair fight
>the invader comes in
>gestures an approval so I guess he knows what i've done
>he gets low
I like how nonchalant the hunter is despite witnessing a a nightmarish ritual and an abomination falling out of a portal to the cosmos.
>>gestures an approval so I guess he knows what i've done
Exactly what gesture was it?
Also don't assume when you're getting invaded, its really your fault for being a fight club pussy.
I don't think the host hit Amy.
Probably not the best example, but I was excited at the 4,200 hit on the arm. Amy's arms are a bitch to hit sometimes, even if the host, or whoever has aggro, is standing still.
I kill Amy much faster, but I don't see the point of uploading what is essentially the same thing twice.
They're actually seriously OP, I'm surprised they haven't been nerf'd at some point.
Oh wait, you weren't the anon who was helping me? Thanks anyways to you both. We just did it but 'Hibiki' died in the very end.
That fucking hat is the embodiment of "when you see it" troll images that contain nothing.
Put it on, maxed out volume, strained my ears, and twitched at every single noise outside of the window trying to hear the dripping sound, expecting something to happen when/if I hear it, like a lunatic.
Oh Hibiki was the one helping me too, thats cool. Just killed him by myself too so everybody's a winner. I'm starting to think the bowblade was created to clear the entire cursed dungeon and just that.
>does phys up at full health do the same thing as phys up?
not sure, anon
I'm asking whether or not you think pellets had anything to do with how gascoigne died so quickly?
Still looking for help for the Orphan.
I'm sick of hearing his fucking screams.
My first character, only have Gherman and Orphan left to do and messing around in chalices now.
Not sure where to put the last few points.
I was thinking just health since stamina does not seem to bad in this one. I really like the items that unlock at 15 arcane; but from what I hear it is not worth going past it unless you are going all in.
I hear Bloodtinge is the same so I guess I should just increase health with what I have left?
if not for going overboard with end, especially with skill weapons, I'd say that's a solid build
put the rest in vit unless you're a madman and want to use executioner's gloves for the utility
I'd say yes. Didn't try with bowblade but I did try with bloodletter.
Word of warning, you won't see the conditional damage displayed in status screen even if you're eligible for the boost right now.
Example 21% PHY +12% PHY at full HP will only show 21% PHY boost even if you're at full HP while checking so when you compare with 27% physicals the damage will appear to be inferior.
Yeah, the end seems quite plentiful now compared to the weapons I was using before making it through the DLC.
I can always double up health runes I guess to make up for it later.
Is the glove handy for utility? Looks like everything past 15 was mostly scaling stuff.
doubling up on health runes and going for 45-50 vit is really the standard
I'd pump vit
gloves are useful and there are times they'll net you a free hit with the staggers, but the damage at 20 arc is just trash compared to 50+
I just beat Ludwig at level 40 after more than 30 tries. Feels fucking good man.
And no, I wasn't twinked, I was dealing sub 200 damage per hit, even less in second phase.
Now, where do I get nourishing gems for this thing until I get to FRC amy and rom bullshit?
>The Hunter's Nightmare
Serves you right you turboshitters
>just killed Maria at LvL 4 NG+6
Holy shit the grinding pays off and feels so good after you finally pull it off.
Orphan concerns me a lot though.
>40 stam doe
>*teleports behind you*
>bragging after someone did it without dodging, rolling, or healing
>bragging after someone did it without dodging, rolling, or healing
Not even that guy but when shitload of /bbg/ anons summon on NG for Ludvig and co. at BL50 it's still pretty impressive even when someone did better.
Anyone want to help me fight Pthumeru Ithyll Descendant?
All right fags how bad did I fuck up my build level 73 stats are
I thought I was gonna use bloodletter but turns out I fucking hate it in pvp so I am just going back to my Beast cutter/Steak driver did I fuck it up too much and should I start over or can I pull it out of my ass for level 110 115?
Oh I know people have done it without rolling or dashing and fist only with their feet while blowing your dad, but I don't care.
Those runs are just tedious for me and that means they're not fun.
I haven't seen you prove your worth in anything other than shitposting though.
Yeah, Ludwig was harder by far.
David Bowie anon back for more opinions.
What should I focus for this character?
I was thinking of going for arcane, suits his "mystical" theme
What origin/weapons/stats do you uys recommend for such a build?
If you're doing any build that isn't a Blt build, yet has Blt, it's a restart if you want to PvP.
Nowhere, really, but you may get something in the woods. Good luck though, they'll all be 30+, some gemmed, too.
>only with their feet while blowing your dad
el oh el
As far as proving my worth, what's it to anyone here? Anon board, brutha.
I could have 100 times over and no one would know or give a damn. Even if I had proof right now, it'd be something else.
>20 vit at 73
You could manage to scrape up 50 str and 47 vit at 115, but you may as well try again since that's a lot of wasted points in blt.
>making a character you can't pvp with
You can. It's harder to pull off and you can't totally minmax because of the origin, but if you're able to farm some good gems at bl4 nothing stops you from trying out any build you want thanks to savescumming.
That's as close as you're going to get to a mule until someone hacks PS4 and allows save restores on different accounts.
>To escape this dreadful hunter#s dream, halt the source of the spreading scourge of beasts, least the night carry on forever
If the night never ends and the source hasn't been halted then how did the other hunts end
Yea I haven't had much pvp experience on it yet besides a few times infront of Laurence last night. Beast cutter whip forms stab caught a lot of people off guard does no one use the thing?
Warning headcanon follows.
Djura took part in burning down Old Yharnam and then broke.
Gehrman 'mercy killed' him to release him from HD but still bears a little grudge because of Djura's betrayal. That's why he sends you to visit Old Yharnam saying it's a good place for a hunter.
Yes, go back to Oedon Chapel and stay there like a good boy
>but would Gehrman know what is happening outside of the Hunter's Dream?
Maybe. He advises you to go to Old Y. or ascend Oedon chapel when the time is right so he probably knows how you progress.
Or Djura had his hissy fit in HD and swore to never kill any furries so German didn't have a choice but to burial blade his sorry ass.
I don't think it's the most popular weapon, but who knows.
I enjoy it simply for being a better game in every way. Found it harder than DaS1 and 2 as well when I first played desu.
My problem with DaS2 is that every enemy encounter was made tedious by the fact that everything, even basic hollows, has ridiculous hyper armor. And then they pack multiple enemies together and maybe throw in some ranged assholes behind them to make it even more of a pain in the ass.
the sgy and de gosmos are won. - t. spurdo sparde
>can't upgrade my armor
>can't dodge for shit
>all the levels are filled with 2,000 strangely arranged erratic statues placed in the middle of the road for you to get stuck on and trapped and die
Jesus fucking Christ why is there so much obtrusive geography in this game where I'm forced to dodge, Dark Souls never had this problem
>poise isn't a thing and enemy stagger seems random
>spend entire game fishing for viscerals
I'm gonna feel so euphoric playing an old fashioned sword'n'board knight when Dark Souls 3 comes out.
I can't wait for more sexual of her
Literally git gud. BSB is supposed to butt slap experienced souls players and forces you to play the game differently. I can tell you that in bb positioning is way more rewarded than in other souls games
>tfw when i beat BSB in a single try on my first playthrough
>tfw when I got my ass handed by amelia 15 times in a row
Would anyone be willing to help me kill living failures? I just want to get to Maria on my 3rd character and having a bit of a hard time using Blades of Mercy against them
Blood level 75
Password is brevkev
I'll be at the lamp
I've never seen this before. Holy shit this man is retarded. He says in the video that there's only one attack pattern he can attack bsb after. He then proceeds to several times dodge through other way simpler attacks and fails to recognize how easy that was
No, /bbg/ was great when the dlc hit, all this hype, new lore, Pizza Cutter, Amy Arm and so much to talk about. The first fightclub after dlc was so fucking cool. /bbg/ was great. Someone post the /bbg/ after dlc comic.
I just beat the game and the DLC with a very bad skill / bloodtinge build on my first character ever
Now I want to explore to system a little bit more. Is strenght/arcane good? I mean I don't even know how to "properly" build a character in this game. I just know VIT is good. I'm thinking of using the kirk and the boom hammer and magic arcane items to spice it all up a little
>what would a skill build look like??hurrdurr???
>what points should I invest in for a skill build??
>would this skill weapon work on a skill build? ANSWER ME IM CLEARLY BLIND AND I CANT READ SCALING
>"guys can I go to the fight club?"
>"what level are you?"
How does /bbg/ like my Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) from Penny Dreadful attempt? Was trying to capture that inquisitive expression she makes quite often in the series.
>All the muh berserk posts over souls/BB
Why? berserk is a fairly generic medieval power fantasy that only got popular because it was full of gore and sexual violence which made the teenage audience reading it think made them adults, causing them to give it far more reverence than it deserves. And anyone that claims its amazing or unique is just showing off the fact that they have never picked up a book a day in their life.
Like Amelia is a gear check, Rom is something like a stat check. If you have really big problems with him/her that you probably don't have enough vit or stamina.
It looks like this thing was kicked in the face multiple times and tried to disguise the marks and bruises with 3 kg of makeup. Your characters look so fucking awful, holy shit.
Rom is more like a retard check. If you just try yolo rushing her with no plan then you get your shit slapped.
Because it is entertaining to read, even as adults. It was also highly unique at the time it released. Of course you would not understand this as you hadn't been born yet.
Haters gonna hate.
It's not a case of haters gonna hate, it's just that it genuinely looks awful.
Do you seriously think that's how eyebrows look? And just look at her cheeks, there's like two separate lumps on top of each other because you completely fucked up her cheekbones. How you just plastered excessive blush all over her cheeks isn't helping in the slightest as well.
Pic related is what your character looks like.
>fight abhorrent beast the first time
>get him to pixel health with no effort, fuck up once and get combo'd and die
>then do progressively worse every time I fight him
>die before getting him to 75%
He's actually pretty easy. The key to his first form is dodging to his left.
Conan isn't a manga. Berserk also has a lot of differences between it, and the Conan comics.
Who's that cutie?
You punish his extend-o-punch.
Anon, shitposting is shitposting, whether its third or first person.
If you'd get your hypocritical dick out your ass, you'd be able to think straight for long enough to understand that if you really didn't care about something you wouldn't reply, being a passive aggressive cunt about it in third person to a third party makes you just as much of a retard as the person you're criticizing.
>how to beat abhorrent beast
As always you're awful. That punch of his is when he's most open to attacks. You can easily dash to his right as soon as he punches and land two attacks on him then backstep.
Stop trying to give advices m8, you have been stuck on bosses for entire weeks and you flee out of this general's pvp because you don't have confidence in yourself.
Oh, okay. If you're gonna be invading like that then, yes, you'll have to get off-shape gems.
You might also want to consider getting Striking gems, but those will only affect your charged shot.
You're one resilient mother fucker Luci. Why do you continue to come here and use a trip? Everyone hates you. I don't really see why you trigger people so much, but I also don't see why you think it's worth being here AND using a trip.
Because people like you give him attention.
Doesn't really matter that it isn't a manga. It fulfills the same role. There are certainly differences but the large force of the generalities are the same or similar and that is all one can really ask for, otherwise even something like Naruto has a claim at being unique.
My techniques are gear towards people having difficulty with the fight. As such, they are designed to be as safe as possible.
Naruto was somewhat unique. The first arc was pretty good too.
ok, just to elaborate:
always stick to his left, most of his attacks will be harmless and only require you to move forward, so you circle around to his back
that way either his punch combo, shockwave or lightning will literally do nothing to you, giving you time to score 2 or 3 hits
careful, getting reedy will fuck you up with his stomp
I did it like this after like my 5th try
however, I never staggered him or managed to get a visceral out if him with this method (is it even possible?)
the same thing goes for the headless version of this foe, the only difference is the range of the snake thing attack once it pops out
>Get dunked by the orphan of kos 26 times in a single day
>Take a break
>Fight him again today and LOL hit it until it dies with 0 problem
Just run by Djura without fighting him. Once you see Paarl, and come back from behind, he will forget that he is hostile towards you.
Here's your (you) now chill out and stop trying to derail the thread.
You can also just see him then bold hunter mark out of there.
Oh yeah I can get him down to 50% health easy
Then he starts jumping on the fucking ceiling and charging me which I can only avoid half of the time
I already went from around 330 blood vials to 280
This is gonna waste all my vials again
They gave us dungeon changes with the DLC, considering those changes are pretty accurately described by what the producer said in that interview that's probably what they were talking about.
>watch Brotherhood of the Wolf
>the hoonters arrive and see a girl and an old man getting ganked
>look at the girl's clothes
>think they really, really look like Yuria the Witch's clothes from DeS
>right after this thought a guy calls her a witch
Did you approach him from BSB's lamp?
At 50% he changes forms and doesn't do any of that.
When he jumps on the ceiling, just run in a straight line. When he gets ready to charge, just start walking to the side then dodge when he moves.
I got an even better one.
I was going to re-read the 3rd volume of Lovecraft's compiled works (the one about the Dreamlands) and the cover art caught my eye, so I researched it and this is the source:
Don't these guys remind you of something?
I enjoyed seeing Monica at least. She looked stunning on that movie, specially at the church. And I laughed at the guy wielding that trick weapon that was basically a Beast Cutter around at the end.
after the DLC When they said "We have no more expansions planned for Bloodborne, however there will be one more big patch focusing on Chalice Dungeons"
Even if it did mean making all materials sellable, it would make no sense for them to say one more patch focusing on dungeons is coming when the DLC had this change.
You need a source, anon. The only time anyone ever talked about the chalices getting changes made to them was in this interview before TOH
Where it was said that they wouldn't be touching the chalices in the DLC, but in an update. Also mentions how there aren't any more DLCs planned.
Minions of the Godhand, if I remember correctly.
You can do regular watchers for tempering gems, tempering boosts blood damage as well. If you want to do offshapes after that it's up to you but speaking as someone who is trying to do the same with a bloodletter, it's pretty rough. I've been farming for a week and got 3 offshapes, 2 were waning bloodtinge scaling gems, the 3rd was a 30.4% Blood damage gem with attack down
Oh definitely, the whorehouse was the high point of the movie.
I used to hunt shinies in pokemon,the autist within speaks to me. I'll probably farm some pwmf when I muster up the courage to beat HMPH or story ihyll in general.
This is certainly the most fun way to beat him.
Ah okay yeah then I'll just farm for blood off shapes since its for a bloodletter, I was just curious for the interim. I still have a 21% with rally boost so I can't complain.
Personally once you've past Defiled, you're pretty much set. It doesn't get harder than that.
Are you kidding me dude it's tricked R1 sweeps 120° in front of you twice and does it a lot quicker then I think it should
I did defiled in 20 minutes with 300 HP. All three bosses in that dungeon are an absolute joke with the bowblade. HMPH on the other hand, that's something you can't get away from.
PS4 downloaded a firmware update this morning and now when I load bloodborne it doesn't recognize the DLC, which unfortunately means that I can't play any of my save files at all.
My god it is fucking beautiful, especially as soon as 4:18 hits and the chanting at 4:51 makes me cum
>All three bosses in that dungeon are an absolute joke with the bowblade. HMPH on the other hand, that's something you can't get away from.
I agree. HMPH is the toughest and most unfair boss in the game.
Were you fucking serious when you posted it? It's shit, for one. The lyrics fit for the parts of the game where there's werewolves. But the point of the game isn't the werewolves and the feel of the music as a whole doesn't fit into the game at all.
Invasions and summons only account for level range, not for game difficulty. You can still invade the same people in NG+ as you have in NG.
Anon, you should probably calm down.
Are YOU fucking serious?
You're giving us some shitty industrial nu-metal with a cheap futuristic aesthetic and expect us to perceive any similarity with Bloodborne?
If you're going for a metal theme song this is what you should have proposed:
Its something to be used to identify someone with the purpose of organizing or doing something that requires some form of legitimacy in its source. There are some people who use it just to gain attention and derail threads.
Oh, I know that. It's just that I /can/ get all those materials and stuff without progressing onto NG+, I just don't feel like it.
I wont those frc gems, though. I should just suck it up and do it now.
bloodborne doesnt really send off the rock music vibe for me
The game is much better if you pretend that mechanic doesn't even exist. Trying to rely on it hurts you more than it helps.
Actually, it's only purpose is to keep people from pretending to be you.
Yes, if you aren't wearing church gear, you get different dialog.
So I just beat Bloodborne for the first time and I have to say this probably surpassed Dark Souls. They're different games for sure but I think Bloodborne was just a better overall experience.
Bloodborne > Dark Souls = Demon Souls >>>>>>>> Dark Souls 2
Also did anyone here actually like Dark Souls 2?
Not Powerwolf. Not mediocre power metal with a very safe, tongue-in-cheek approach to music and aesthetics.
Watain at the very least. I didn't pick Watain just because they have this wolf gimmick, but also because they make Black Metal that sounds both malevolent and vey kinetic, and have a much more serious take on the ritual satanism thing. They also made one of the best Lovecraft-inspired songs of the past twenty years. It may not be the most fitting or the most authentic band but it's pretty damn close.
Powerwolf makes fun music, but comparing them to Watain (and to Bloodborne) is ridiculous. This is not a matter of personal appreciation.
