So if you were a npc phantom what boss/area would you be found at?

The main reason that guy thought that the Four Kings were supposed to be called the Death Kings is because in Japanese the number four and the word death are both pronounced the same way. He was most likely trying to rationalize the fact that there are in fact five Kings in the boss fight (the last of which shows up if you don't defeat the penultimate king quickly enough), but the theory falls apart when you realize that while the two words might be pronounced the same, they are written using different characters, which is what FrogNation looks at when translating the names.

The moral of the story is that From is an incompetent developer

Tried the Zwei and holy fuck, literally 440AR at +9, what is this cancer.

Honestly so far seems to be nothing but a fucking rapier/straight sword meta shit.

I tried that Nil Curved Greatsword thing, and upgrading from base to +5 only nets 100 AR. what the fuck is with this game.

Faith builds are just bad in general because the magical part of the damage you deal gets resisted a lot, especially by bosses and ESPECIALLY in the DLC part of the game.

I'm really not a fan, I loved how a lot of the stuff in DaS was very grounded in reality, as in most stuff behaved how you would imagine it would in our world, and swords taken from reality were accurately depicted.

Now looking at DaS3 if you powerstance or whatever you can perform an attack that launches people 5 feet straight up into the air.

>>128613368
Red Iron Twinblade or Santier's Spear
>>
>>128613368
Red Iron is pretty good. Dragonrider's if you go int.
>>
>>128613952
Tranquil Walk of Peace can still be used, but it's basically a giant bluff.

Claymore was also nerfed but by no means is it useless, still wrecking idiots with it, poise break or not.
>>
>>128613952
On one hand there's the crystal ring shield and magic shield, on the other there's twop and pyromancy.
>>
>>128613368
Red Iron is the best. Gigantic damage. They call it the Winblade, because you win with it.
Santier's Spear is next up there. Very versatile moveset, good reach. Make it Raw. Don't just 2hr1 mash with it.

The actual Twinblade and Stone Twinblade are about equal.
Despite the Stone's higher scaling and AR, it has a 0.85x damage multiplier and does only about 5 more damage while costing far more stamina.
While you can get the Twinblade early on, it's a STR weapon that requires 26 DEX, and doesn't do damage until fully upgraded and with high STR.
You can't really build around it.
In PvP, they're very average. Requires a lot of skill to use effectively but doesn't reward you much, though they're not bad.

Sorcerer's Twinblade might as well not exist.

So, grab Santier's Spear, break it on the crow's nest, and use that until you get the Red Iron.

>get tons of soul items
>get required stats for the item I'll need before I fight a boss other than asylum demon

>no joy

even if I were to play the game naturally and gather the build's items naturally I would still get overpowered and the victories would feel empty.

I feel like I've become so skilled that this game is finally below me. And I've done an SL1 run, and an SL1 run without spells, a perma gravelord aggressive mod run, etc so don't suggest those.

I can't wait for DS3
>>
>>128614830
Oh, and the Dragonrider Twinblade is pretty good.
Straight upgrade to the Twinblade and Stone Twinblade if you can handle the weight, but not as good as Red Iron.
Same moveset, but actually does damage.
Don't infuse it, but do buff it.

Magic Shield and Strong Magic Shield used to be 30 seconds long.
Strong Magic Shield used to make you completely invincible while your shield was down.

Now it lasts like 10 seconds, and Lingering doesn't work on it.

The Pickaxe and Warpick both had their poise damage reduced to the level of katanas.
This + the hammer stunlock nerfs made them suck ass outside of high damage leo counters.
Which halberd did better and still infinitely stunlocks with.

Well, it's got 20% str, 25% dex, 40% int scaling.
The phys scaling is laughable, the int scaling is better than most infused weapons but still kinda low.
I'd at least have enough for great magic weapon.
Its strength comes from its high base damage (for a twinblade) and RoBFlynn + a buff.

It's still good in my opinion. As for the DLCs Fume Straight Sword is basically a greatsword with the Sun Sword's moveset. Slap on a dark resin and get the damage of a greatsword too
>>
>>128619113
Sheeit sound pretty good. What's a decent build for that?

ATM I'm just 30/30 fth/int infusing my Drakekeeper's with Dark, I'm assuming this wouldn't be very good for Fine SS? Hell I don't even know if it's realistically good for Drakekeeper's, but I get better AR on this build than I did with 30/30 str/dex. Bit confused coming back in.
>>
>>128619054
breh, everyone has that one or two or three bosses that give them trouble no matter how gud they git.
>>
>>128618757
It's still one of the best.
The DLC added Fume Sword, which is a Sun Sword with long range.
But it's DEX / Dark, with low split damage, 40 durability, very high stamina usage.
Longsword's still better.

There's also Ashen Warrior Sword and Possessed Armor Sword.
Ashen Warrior Sword has the Short Sword moveset, long reach, low durability, and built in bleed.

Possessed Armor Sword has an ungodly amalgam of the worst straight sword / axe moves, including the Red Rust Sword's 1hr2.
It's cool looking, and has a L2 self-buff which is the best looking in the game, but it lasts a sad amount of time.

You will likely never see them used by other people.

So, I'm pretty much a casul when it comes to Dark Souls 2. Just how important is armor? Does poise do anything worth noting, are elemental resistances important, all that jazz.

elemental resist is way more important than poise or phys def in DS2 IMO. Also the way elemental resist and physical DEF works is different. I believe 10 elemental resist = 1% resist while phys DEF isn't percentage based and basically sucks. You're generally better off putting points into VGR instead of pumping up VIT so you can wear armor.
Poise is important if you have a really slow weapon.
>>
>>128620021
Okay, it's still a good idea with the falchion anyway

>>128619941
Check the op for a more detailed explanation, but armor is pretty useless for anything but elemental defense and poise

Does equip load still basically have its own stat in DS3 or is it better integrated into the other stats?

>>128623864
pretty sure it just reduces your damage if you have sin
>>
>>128624348
VIT is your equip load. Your stamina refills faster if your equip load % is lower, so levelling VIT will increase your max, which decreases your percentage.

Also wear a chloranthy ring, and the shield that increases stam regen if you're desperate.

You know, when I first started playing DS2, I thought it couldn't hold a candle to DS1. But 100 hours into DS2 and about 50 into SotFS, I can't help but love it equally. I gave it way too bad a rap at first. Game's fucking good. Sure, it doesn't have quite the atmosphere or story, and some of the areas give me fucking ass cancer, but it improved on so many other aspects.

I hope DS3 is just as good.
>>
>>128631518
I agree with you. I definitely prefer the zone design and connectivity in DS1, but most of the other things in DS2 are equal or better imo
>>
>>128631518
I like DS2 but I also feel like it tries really hard to make me hate it.
DS1 had its issues but I can look past a lot of that because the path from firelink shrine to anal rodeo is probably one of the best examples of video game level designs ever.

Then I play DS2 and although it's fun I can't help but get annoyed at some of the shitty design decisions - and how the hell am I supposed to look past those when I'm going through, say, the fucking shrine of fucking amana?

>>128630713
I also did a playthrough blasting heavy metal while playing this character
>>
>>128629696
>93 soul arrows
but WHY?
>>
>>128631518
The way I see it, DaS1 has better design (aside from post-Anor Londo base game) and DaS2 has better mechanics (aside from ADP). I consider them both roughly equally flawed but still excellent.
>>
For a DS1 quality build should I go for Havels/RoFaP or DWGR/RoFaP?
>>
>>128631837
>how the hell am I supposed to look past those when I'm going through, say, the fucking shrine of fucking amana?
DS2's level design is easily its weakest point. Which is probably the biggest reason for the negative reaction to it, since the first half of DS1 is absolutely flawless in level design. When you come off something that memorable into the fucking Iron Keep, the Shrine of Amana, or even goddamn No Man's Wharf, you're gonna get mad.

It takes some time for all of DS2's good points to sink past that initial revulsion.
>>
Can I use CE in DaS1 without being banned etc? I want to get 2 bonewheel shields for my skeltal build right as I get to firelink, the earlier the better
>>
>>128632074
Wait, what's wrong with Amana and Wharf? Those zones were honestly excellently done atmosphere wise, imo, and a lot of people (even on this board) have said the same thing
>>
>>128631858
Because I havent felt like spicing down some stronger spells yet

Can the ice bunnies in Eleum Loyce be considered completely fair? The touch damage is really terrible if you have shorter weapons like rapiers.
>>
>>128632178
Atmosphere was fine, even great. But Amana was almost purposefully designed to be a fucking cancerous chore to slog through, pretty or not. Hidden falls, slow running, tracking spells from miles off, and not even a rewarding boss fight at the end of it.

Wharf is just egregiously long, to the point that I need a Repair Powder almost every time I go through it. And in SotFS, as much as I absolutely love the lighting changes, I pretty much need to use a torch.

Also, Wharf has dogs. FUCK dogs.

>>128632074
I also prefer DS1's pvp. DS2 pvp works better when it comes to control inputs and being smoother overall but the way the character stats work in DS2 really limits viable pvp builds IMO.
>>128632178
I find amana tedious just for the point of being tedious. I've completed 5 or so playthroughs and most places I didn't like I've learned how to handle or run through but amana is always still a stupid kiting slog.

>>128632297

I hope to god that you don't have to farm fashion in DaS3. It should be like in Bloodborne where all your fashion comes from the shop or guaranteed drops
>>
So why were hexes and pure INT builds hated?

I never felt like doing relevant damage despite full upgrades, infused, 50INT and you basically are oneshot if you misstep once, your cast times are long even with equipment + stats giving "maxed" cast speed while locking you on the spot.

Pyromancy felt far more faceroll.
>>
>>128629142
From the little I understand about infusions, it seems like it would infuse well with say, lightning? And use SLB with it? Or just go standard? Also the estoc seems like it would pair well with it for say, pvp...
>>
>>128634778
If you want a faith build, then infuse with lightning, otherwise leave uninfused

Why is my status thing showing 8 ADP when I'm level 1 on a new defiled character?

Is this some sort of counter measure that kicks in when using a cheat engine, it fucks your stats so your 2 SL's higher than what should be possible and they can detect it then?

>going through the rat tunnels

Why? It wasn't as if I was going to win. If you're going to give yourself every cheesy bitch-mode advantage in the book, why throw infinite HP on top of it? Doesn't that make all the rest seem like overkill?
>>
>>128635698
i agree but on the other hand it doesn't really matter because you just warp right back to where you were in your own world

I've no idea what that is, just spawned some rings, armour and an ivory greatsword with some soul vessels and souls to level up with for my build.

It's by 5 though. Mad Warrior Mask and Peasent Gear all increase it by 2.

How is this Leo Ring build? Should I commit to either DEX or STR and go to 50 if I want to pvp at all? Using a Chariot Lance and Spear, soon to be partisan. Kind of fucked myself upgrading a DEX and a STR weapon.

I'd thought it may have been something like that but none of the rings I'm using have an adp effect listed from what I can see
