So I just started this game about a 4 days ago and I just learned about the term soft ban and how FROM throws it to players casually...How do I know if I'm softbanned? I have about 14hours into the game and have been only invaded once. I do get decent amounts of co op gameplay like summoning and being summoned. Is there a way to test if my account is fucked or nah?

>>128513746
What the fuck did I just say you retard? Either contribute to the thread or never speak to me again.
>>
>>128513757
If you're getting good amounts of co-op then there's no way you're softbanned. A sure-fire way of finding out is to go warp to an area with an orange border and try to invade, if you can't in 3 of those areas you're soft banned and need to use the bone of order

Yes. But it would still be a ridiculously monotone block, run, strike, strike, strike, block, run, strike, strike, strike, block, run, strike, strike, strike ad nauseam fare.

Rolling perfectly may be better if you actually have the skills for it. But even my old grandpa could beat them using a good shield.

The wharf was pretty cool with regards to the fire and the oil. The monsters were afraid of fire, the vikings would douse you in oil, and if you tried to light your torch when you were covered in oil you would burn to death.

How is a backup even a cheat? Restoring a backup just reverts the game to a previous state.
It affects neither you, nor anyone else, either positively or negatively. It merely reverts time so to speak.

How and why does it trigger their supposed cheat detection?
And how can it (if it even can) tell the difference between a game having ended abruptly and a backup being restored?
>>
>>128514304
Yeah, I'm pretty sure they learned their lesson from DaS2, though I wonder if Aldia will play a direct role again in the game. They're reusing some bosses right?

The Undead Crypt was really awesome. The wall that turned out to be giants holding shields, the sorcerers being tied to their grave stones, the arms that would slash you from out of the walls. It all seemed really creative all of a sudden. Plus, it looked incredibly cool to light up the crypt with a torch.

I've got 42 poise and get stunlocked in 1-hit by anything when blocking. I freeze up in the idle animation for a couple frames after blocking for no reason regardless of stamina and poise.

Fuck it potato video, you can still see what's happening

I'm holding block button the whole time
He automatically resumes blocking after idle stance after hits
When I start attacking, I've been spamming attack but it's blocked by the idle animation lock
My poise is 40+ w/ chain and boar helm and hollow warrior metal shield

Pirated copy you held block until fatigue ran out, and poise was a factor in this
When poise or fatigue failed you did a definite "UGH" animation
This he just idles
>>
>40+ poise w/ chain and boar helm
Sorry: Steel gauntlets
got a lucky drop earlier near temple
>>
>>128518437

That's fucking weird. I have a lot of knowledge of the game but I've never seen anything like this. Some things I can think of: if you used Cheat Engine it might have fucked your save data. Maybe it's your controller? I've turned the controller rumble off myself, but perhaps the rumble you get from an enemy hitting your shield somehow makes the controller think you release the block? Try playing with keyboard controls to see if your controller is the fault.

Did SotfS make any balance changes to the classes and weapons somehow?

I made a cleric for my character this time around, but I amusingly only have 11 strength while my mace requires 12. I don't recall this being the case, but then again my memory may not be that good.
>>
so, I loved Dragonslayer Spear is Dark Souls 1 and was wondering

how well does it perform in Dark Souls 2? for this playthrough I just feel like being a shitter and using rapier/ropera w/ sacred oath, stone ring and rob flynnstone

and was kind of considering as using DSS as a backup for bosses like Shitter Demon where physical damage is mitigated pretty heavily
>>
>>128520483
Nah, they didn't. You need to 2-hand the mace, which only takes 50% of the STR requirement.

Soon, brother. Soon. Very soon. 2.0 soon. SOON

Black Knight Greataxe is probably the worst PvP weapon you can still call a weapon.
It's monstrously slow, slower than any other ultra weapon.
Unlike other ultras, its 2h moveset can be parried. Reaction parried, at that. It has a reaper-tier sweet spot.
It has high damage, sure, but you suffer for it. Using it is like using the dragon tooth in DaS1. Without 2hWR or backstabbing.

Don't expect too much from fume's pve damage unless you gimp your rings and survivability. It takes a lot of stamina per swing so you're better off with other weapons. Of course, the speed and range is ridiculous for pvp and that's why people value it so highly. Not BSS tier sadly, that weapon was in a class of its own

If you're doing pve stick with the estoc, some club or some big-hitting one shotter like the mastodon/big candy cone. Strike damage/ lightning etc. rambleramble

Ivory King ultra greatsword is the strongest ultra greatsword. It was when it was released, and then it got buffed even more.
It requires bracing knuckle and some hefty requirements, but it's worth it.
The laser adds a huge amount of range, though the laser itself does small damage.
This thing can't combo 2h attacks, but it does huge enough damage that it doesn't matter.
Beast of a weapon. What ultra weapons should be.

Fume ultra greatsword requires dedication to fully learn. It deflects attacks when blocking with two hands.
You can combine that with block stun cancels to wham people during their stagger for most of their health, and also if you time it right, can have small amounts of block frames during rolls or 2hr2s.
This is pretty strong, obviously. If you learn it, it is immensely satisfying, and can neuter small weapons.
If you play without exploiting those, it's an okay weapon.
The 2hL2 is pretty good for smashing people that roll behind you. Rolling behind someone, as if to backstab, and 2hr2ing will usually catch their roll. Very good.
Like the Ivory King, its range is huge.

Steel protection ring. Murder Saulden for it. In PvE, it reduces about as much damage as full fucking havels+5.
Yes, the +0 one. +2 only reduces about 40 more damage, if I remember right.

Shrine of Amana was super nice to look at and I love the atmosphere. Fuck actually fighting there, but the design of the area itself was 10/10 for me. Dat longing singing, dat light through the roots, dem glowing plants, all of it just blended together and will always be maximum comfy for me.

Approaching Drangleic Castle for the first time gave me chills and reminded me of Twilight Princess when you finally shatter the barrier and can get to Hyrule Castle proper. The actual area in the castle wasn't that great, but the approach. God damn that first approach made the entire game worth it to me.

No, other way around.
Blacksmith's is marginally shorter, and has no counter strength.
It says it has 40 poise break, but like the mastodon greatsword, it's not actually any higher than others in its class.
Did extensive testing on such weapons.

Since you are using an UGS, I would look into getting your poise to at least hit hyper armor values of 163. Shoot for at least 82 poise, or even better, 102 for 25 poise weapons.
For spells, try shit. Use vessels to test spells, then spice them down. I would look into spicing down non-buff and not affinity since they don't suffer when spiced. If you don't like hexes, go with sacred oath and heals since you have the faith.

Rings- probably Royal Soldier, Third Dragon for the armor for the poise, Probably giants ring, and either chloranthy for stam regen or clear bluestone for the spells if you want to cast offensively.

Thats my 2 cents anyway. Someone will probably pic it apart.

Uh, I play the game without dealing with bullshit like RNG-based farming or a lack of in-game stat-modifying options?

I just spend my average relaxed run through a game fighting through enemies, experimenting with different tactics and builds, enjoy the feeling of dodging and dancing around PvE challenges. Sometimes I also do challenge runs, like no-damage-to-myself against bosses.

One thing I like to do, for example, is just go through the second-half of Anor Londo and parry and riposte all the Silver Knights to death. I'd do that, go back to the bonfire where Solaire is and repeat the process. I could spend hours just doing that. It's fun.

Then when I get bored, I try out the exact same thing but with a different weapon, armor and stat combination. And when I get bored of melee, I run through the Silver Knights using other things, like maybe pure Pyromancy or Magic.

Softbans seem to be mostly caused by changing your Soul Memory, and having impossible stats (like 1500/1000 HP for example).

Some people have reported softbans for editing items to have incorrect values, especially since it was a common problem to accidentally make weapons that count as consumables.
>>

There hasn't been a consistent method to their detection system. It might be monitored in waves, or instantly detected but only "some" people get banned. Some times you get away with doing things you shouldn't, sometimes you get immediately caught.

So i'm jumping back into Dark Souls 1 PVP and i'm aiming for some Paladin Character using Lucerne and some other weapon i haven't really decided on yet. I've literally never played faith before so i have no clue on what to put stats in.
It currently looks like this https://www.mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?b=Y2xlcmljLDQ1LDE1LDQ1LDE2LDEyLDExLDgsNDAsMTAsNiwxOSw0NSwyNywzLDMxLDE2MywxMiwxMjgsOTMsbm9ybWFsLGRldmluZSxub3JtYWwsZGV2aW5lLDEsNDYsNTMsNTgsMCwwLDAsMCwwLDAsMCwwLDAsOSx3b29kZW4sd29vZGVuLHdvb2Rlbix3b29kZW4sMSwwLDAsMCwwLDAsMCww
However, i realized people could negate my damage completely with great magic barrier, so i'm unsure if going 40 faith is a good idea. I'm wondering if it's a better idea to go maybe 30-35 faith and put some points into either strength or skill and use Sunlight buff when i have the opportunity. Figured i'd ask here for some guidelines since literally all my older builds have been edgy Dexfags and Quality.

High (40-50) faith will make your miracles very strong, divine weapons are always quite bad in PvP. If someone puts on a GMB just change your weapon to a lightning damage weapon. Also, if you really want to use a faith based projectice spell, use Emit Force, Lightning Spears just don't work unless you're ganking or something.

Black Gulch because it has this atmosphere of being a small but unbelievably dangerous location that's so far underground, nobody will ever be able to help you. Catacombs/Tomb of the Giants kind of did that better, but I played DaS2 first so it struck me as a bit more memorable, plus the visuals in Black Gulch are just great with the greens on black.

Yeah, I successfully taught a person who was hosting me to burn the windmill. I noticed there was poison in front of the two Grave Wardens just outside the boss arena, so I started doubling back and using whatever means of communication I had available to point him towards the windmill. Thankfully he somehow made the leap in logic to burn it after seeing he couldn't normally interact with it; the only hint I was able to give about that was pulling out my Pyromancy Flame.

the issue is the fact that people who want to make sorcerers in OG Dark Souls are forced to go the same old stale 40 INT + 40 DEX build in order to be viable because of how Dex scales with casting speed.

basically, sorcerors are commonly frowned upon because they're usually the same stupid build that uses crystal magic weapon + dex weapon of choice, crystal soul spear, and homing crystal soulmass.

Dark Souls II handled Sorcerer builds a lot better. Extra casting speed, casts, and agility for raising attunement, which made circumvented the need for raising dexterity so high and allowing sorcerer builds to get the bare minimum str/dex for the weapon they wanted to use.
>>
>>128536250
>That webm

afterthought:

however, that being said, I would never play Dark Souls II PvP without some sort of Magics/Miracles/Pyromancies because it's literally "who has the longer weapon range to get their two hits in first".

There is a valid reason as to why he has the highest win ratio among DaS2 bosses.
>>
>>128540275
I guess co-op would be hard if you never realize that he aggros to random targets no matter what, but the challenge with him is mostly in learning how to read his attacks. He's hardly the first boss you would have encountered up to that point that is capable of killing you in two hits.

It used to be on the farfire DaS2 website, but it is dead now and DaS2 has a new official website because of SotFS.
>Data provided by From Software reveals that the Fume Knight from Crown of the Old Iron King is statistically the most punishing boss in Dark Souls 2, defeating challengers almost 93 percent of the time. The Fume Knight's toughness is consistent with a general increase in boss difficulty after Dark Souls 2's main campaign. Of the five bosses most likely to defeat players on a per-encounter basis, four originate in the Lost Crowns DLC: Elana the Squalid Queen, Sir Alonne, Sinh the Slumbering Dragon, and the dreaded Fume Knight.
>The Ruin Sentinel gauntlet wins the prize for the single most-frequented boss encounter among all Dark Souls 2 players. Heroes have pitted themselves against the Sentinels almost 25 million times, with an average success rate of 76 percent across all platforms, meaning the Sentinels win about one out of every four attempts.
>>
>>128541119
By "Ruin Sentinel gauntlet," is that referring to just the fight against them as a boss or that room with five of them in Drangleic Castle?
>>
>>128541238
The bastille fight.
>>
>>128541320
I'm surprised the success rate is so high. I always go in with summons (because why the fuck wouldn't you summon for a multi-enemy boss fight) but I would think they destroy people who try to solo them.
>>
>>128541480
It's mostly just a 1v2 when you solo them, since you 1v1 the first one as soon as you enter, unless you drop off the platform which will aggro the others. Soloing them is pretty easy as a result

>>128541119

Free Titanite for every dead host is pretty good, because forest is JUST souls and only from people who haven't killed Sif and have to be human. At the very least, to hit rank 3 it'd be 100 free Titanite Chunks, except it's more like 80 Titanite Chunks, 10 slabs and some random Twinkling here and there.

Why not? Abyss invasions are super fun.
And you can also use the character for LGK invasions for Abyss invasions as well, since you can only unlock the covenant upon arriving to drangleic castle and the SM ranges are pretty much the same.
Win-win.

Join Chaos covenant, work on leveling that up for a while, eventually you'll gain access to a hidden passage that will allow you to alter his fate.

That is, if you aren't already too late.

Rhea and Petrus will sell to you regardless of your faith stat.

However to get the sunlight spear miracles from the Warrior of Sunlight covenant you need a minimum of 25 faith to join, but you can lower it by 5 for each boss you help kill when you're summoned as a phantom.
>>
>>128562685
>BB (its a souls game like it or not)
It's a blood game sharing many similarities with souls games.
>>
>>128562635
Either level up in the chaos covenant by giving the fair lady 30 humanity and opening the shortcut, or if you have the poison mist pyromancy you can go up to the shorcut wall and breath the poison through the wall. You'll know when you kill the sunlight maggot since it drops 100 souls and the others only drop like 30

this
but actually it's because few people actually kill npcs more than once for quick armor sets or after they do it on accident and learn not to, DaS2 is easier with the poison auras but still not very common
>>
>>128562960
Because connectivity is a bitch and players aren't playing properly. Most people try to duel when invaded rather than engage in a pitched battle for survival, meaning by the time the cop could connect, the fight is already over.

Invaders also tend to make sure that they can't be invaded in their own worlds.

I suffer from the same kind of problem. Been saving up for Bloodborne Station and Bloodborne itself, but damn, now when it's less than 3 months till DaS3 release I really don't think it's worth it, maybe another time.

so is company of champs basically ng+? Is it easier or hard than ng+1 on a new playthrough?

>>128563393
So there's not enough criteria to invade, and there's not enough people being invaded for a long enough time to be aided.

Perfect. It's a literally useless covenant.
>>
>>128562795
the more I'm looking into this the more a pain it seems
what sort of character do I even want to build for this? I've never done a faith build, and if I need 25 I may as well use some of 'em but I have no fuckin' clue.

>>128563483
It'd probably be harder than doing NG+ with an appropriately geared player, but easier than going into NG+ with a fresh character
