>DARK SOULS 2
An undead hollows when they lose their purpose.
What happened to him, then?
>Maybe it's time I do something about it…
That sounds like purpose to me.
Yeah, I wasn't too happy about that either. I didn't even like that in Bloodborne to begin with.
I don't mind bloodshed per se, but not every single hit should cause a huge gush of blood to come out.
It's almost cartoonish how it looks sometimes.
he does seem a bit suicidal the closer I look at his lines.
>What's wrong? Get a bit of scare out there?
No problem. Have a seat and get comfortable.
We'll both be Hollow before you know it.
Hah hah hah hah…
Sit down and wait to die.
Poor sods last shred of motivation was just getting away from Frampts bad breath.
Are you on PC? Then why aren't you just using a save editor? Why ever deal with RNG? Fuck, that's what I'm gonna do when Dark Souls 3 comes out. I'll just play the game and not farm for shit and wait for a save editor to come out. No way am I going to waste my time leaving the outcome of my gaming session to the RNG dice of the game.
If you're not on PC? Well, sucks be to you.
Why is my fucking game suddenly spiking at 15 FPS instead of the regular 60? I was 5 minutes ago playing anal rodeo just fine and now it wont unstuck from 15 FPS
fuck this goddamn game theres always an issue
amazing if you can avoid getting hit. once, while invading in al i got distracted and got hit by a knight just as i was being summoned, nearly oneshot me. quickly switched to rtsr and oneshot both the host and his phantom with 2 hp
>red is good in ds2
isn't it just for physical damage? significantly weaker
>PCcucks shitting on consolefags on a game series set to consoles
whats your excuse? look at how bad the fucking ports are and try to defend that
not to mention this all started out as a console game so youre a slave to sony like it or not, the fact you rely on controllers already makes you their little bitch
How can I make Santier's Spear work? It looks cool and all but even upgraded to+5 and raw infused it does shit damage in NG+4 Would high INT, magic infusion, CMW with magic clutch ring work?
Co-op signs. Absolutely everywhere. For the 6 hours I've been playing today.
And now when I actually need a co-op sign, I find none.
Is this intentional or something? It feels like it.
Yes. I am a coward. If this wasn't Dark Souls II I would just courageously fight back and dare the challenges and reclaim my souls.
But this is Dark Souls II, and if I lose all my souls that will stain my Soul Memory forever.
Eh no. The mouse+keyboard combination is superior for turning and manuevering as long as you have a solid mouse like the g502 with a good set of buttons
Add autohotkey for some macros and it's pretty damned smooth for both quick attacks, moveswaps and all your tryhardy little tricks
But yeah, I'm resigned to DS3 being FUBAR on launch (as per fucking usual)
That ring doesn't really solve the problem. Soul memory can still ruin characters.
Being able to lock your soul memory doesn't really help you much if it also locks your ability to gain souls at all. So if you lose a lot of souls your character will be a lot weaker than it should be at that level of soul memory.
>will stain my Soul Memory forever
People really need to calm down about this shit. It matters so little because other player's SM just race away while you are being careful about your sm. You will get bored of your build before you meet the SL838 monsters.
that's only really a problem when it comes to gear with high requirements, the game is just as beatable at level 40 with a fully upgraded weapon than it is at 120
granted soul memory is awful and has no place in a game with such great multiplayer
The guy was running away for a long time, and when I finally catch up to him
>The allotted time has elapsed. Returning to your world...
This must be the gayest thing I've ever seen. Why the FUCK is there a time limit in invasions?
Invasion timers last like a full 10 minutes don't they? How the fuck could the host manage to escape for that long? It's pretty much all your fault if he wasn't hiding with Chameleon.
>the game will NEVER be this populated again
>those sounds when walking over the corpses
I am playing a squishy mage and I am having the hardest time defeating the Executioner's Chariot.
The boss itself isn't anything special, but I can't get rid off the skeletons in time. So they gang up on me and kill me whenever I hide from the chariot.
Pussy out like the pussy ass mage you are, kill the first necronancer and set of skeletons, hide in the alcove where you killed the mage and shoot a soul arrow/2 at the chariot when he comes around the corner
Repeat until he is ab 30% health and stops showing up, go past everything and shoot him once so he falls down and enjoy your easy souls
Defender has better resistances imo (magic over fire) and more stability. King's shield looks awesome though and the differences are ultimately unimportant so go for whatever you want.
Would you like to see the summoning system from BB in DaS3? If you don't know - you can play through areas constantly looking for summons at the cost of them then having to find you after.
I like that it's tied to being invaded too, even though it creates ganks.
>upgrading a weapon is useless, right?
Hmm, I swear when I took a look at the result from upgrading that the letters were not blue.
I'll come over, summ sign at Undead Lockaway? The name is The Key.
>show this do das2babies
>says it's working as intended and the hitboxes aren't fubar
Is there a comparison of the rollspeeds across the series?
Twinking. It was Shibuya's idea, as many people claim, although there is no direct confirmation to that.
Honestly I think it would've been a decent system if it only accounted souls spent on leveling yourself and upgrading your gear. It wouldn't fix all problems with twinking in that case, but it would've been a step closer to it.
glitch something that doesn’t always happen. the o&s thing is a glitch (the hitbox of smoughs hammer has stayed were it was when ornstein died). the mimic always happens but can be explained with many ways. the most flattering one (and personal favourite along with the other shitty grabs): you’re supposed to be hit there, but the animation should change a bit regarding your place, it’s just not displayed well. unfortunately, with the way lingering hitboxes work, it will likely never be fixed, even in ds3. there are bullshit hitboxes in ds1 were it’s not a rare thing. the 2 best examples are the lightning buttslam hitting you after the lightning has died out and gaping dragon hitting you with the dash while he’s completely still
People claim that DaS2 has the slowest roll, but it looks like it's just as fast as DaS3.
>showing a glitch as a legitimate roll
notice what he’s pressing, he’s quickrolling. it’s bug.
wanted to post this for the lingering hitboxes
It's not bullshit hitboxes that I cringe at. It's the large pile of humanoid enemies with unbelievable poise and health along with ZERO fucking respect for stamina rules
Anyone who's farmed CREOs from mobs a little will know what I'm talking about
Most phantoms and humanoid bosses like the ganksquad also operate on an unreal level with their mechanics which just infuriates me
Considering that DaS3 has been confirmed to have SL matchmaking, and that they're currently not planning on doing any more games set in that universe, I highly doubt that it will ever make a comeback.
are you a different anon from whom i answered to? because what you say is completely different from that post. besides, infinite stamina enemies exist in both game and ds2 has infinite creo farming with no killing
Don't get this wrong, I fucking love the series and all the games, but when will FROM fix the bullshit with rolling and it being actually just short range teleports with fancy animations and i-frames? What the fuck, it's been years.
Seriously, in one way or the other you can encounter that in ALL their games, and while most of the times it's hardly noticeable (with the exception of early game DaS2 since you get fuck all in terms of i-frames) this is almost Bethesda levels of lazyness. Is it really that hard to code a dynamic hitbox that actually follows the charracter?
>Anyone who's farmed CREOs from mobs a little will know what I'm talking about
I don't get this. I farm CREOs from the executioners in Huntsman's Copse (on the way to Chariot) and they get poise broken in one rapier hit, usually
But you're talking about literally single frame difference. Take the snapback backstabs for example, they're frustrating but I can understand why that happens when I'm playing over the internet and the input difference between my roll and his R1 is minute
That's what I thought, but the guy I replied to was talking about infinite stamina and unbelievable poise, and anyone who farms CREOs would know. Those dudes are the best mobs to farm CREOs, so I don't really get it.
Yes I'm a different one. I'm just highlighting my main personal peeve with DaS2. It's not the creo farming or anything.
There's tons of 2nd-half DaS1 examples of bad hitboxes, I'm kinda used to that
The main issue with torturers is that they have infinite stamina and can use that 3-chain repeatedly, immediately after the first one which defies what you've learnt up to that point.
As a new player back in the day when they mobbed you on the path to the chariot it was just mindblowing. They hit really fucking hard on low-levels and they have no recovery at all for their attack cycles.
None of that is intuitive. None of that also teaches you anything worthwhile unlike many great areas like heide's or the amazing first-half of DaS1 which I'm sure everyone remembers by muscle memory.
>That feeling when you die to a boss over and over and the soul pile keeps growing larger and larger each time.
>And then eventually you die right in front of your soul pile and lose all the souls.
>And then on the very next attempt right afterwards you defeat the boss successfully. But still lost all the souls.
Not easily in a mob, and not when you die in 2 hits. Your +4 fire longsword can't punish that effectively either. I'm pretty sure in a blind-run that encounter would stump even DaS1 plat players the first few times around, I sure was.
And bear in mind none of us had the know-how back then to just babbymode estoc/great club it.
It's just not quality design at the end of the day.
god damn i have beaten this game 4 times already and the fucking ruin sentinels still make me mad
literally what the fuck do you even do if they decide to spam the spin move every single time
Corpses and water you say?
Yes this is literally 100% real I am not fucking around.
>Enisle always waits for opponent to do something so that he can go in and attack.
>Not a big-ass turtle.
He might not use havel shield right now but that doesn't change his playstyle.
Realize that the KttE has the highest Counter damage of any greatsword. The Leo Ring boosts counter attacks with thrust weapons by another ~20% or so, so if you have 40 Dex to take advantage of the great scaling of the weapon and hit a counter attack on a 1hr2 while wearing the ring, you'll inflict some serious pain.
Dunno about wars but in most battles whoever strikes first wins. Not always, but usually that's the case. There is no instant roll/block button IRL and it is possible to attack without a long-ass windup, so most of the times when you see an attack coming your way it's already too late.
>why didn’t you wear agape on the way?
I think he was more so upset at like, wanting to spend the souls?
Not everyone who comes here is amazing at the game, I'd imagine a decent chunk of the readers here are casual
It's definitely worth it, you can be very aggresive when your setup is based on counter damage which works wonders against the 150 reactive katana meta, and you aren't going to get punished like you would with STR weapons.
>They immediately start attacking while I'm still spawning
Don't misunderstand, that's all well and good because I'm an invader. But don't be surprised when I act like a colossal faggot in the fight as a result
>Collectors' Edition a few souls

Now I understand why people say dark souls ii is shit. Is there absolutely no other way to get that helmet? Did I just miss it after Orenstein? Can I make the guy respawn?
@ SOFS PC
anyone interested in doing a fast no bonfire no death NG run to get both rings?
Have tried it 10 times so far and normally fuck up not summoning someone when it would help
Would like to have both rings to lock myself for PVP
can also provide a TS
would also be fine to do a low SL nbnd run
24 - uk
Okay then, so I can at least probably get the helmet this run. Now that you mention it, I recall being told to use Ascetics on certain bosses to get +2 rings; is there a limited supply of Ascetics in the game?
I love Enisle. Can't wait to see him upload his DaS3 gameplay.
>in DaS3 L2 will be the dedicated sword art button
>parries are sword arts and drain focus, building on BB's silver bullet mechanic
>parries without focus do not partially block similar to DaS2
Do you think FROM has the balls to do this?
I'm sure he'll continue to spoil us with his elaborate builds and beastly fightstyle!
Especially in the first month of release, then the game will be fresh and bro... exciting!
Oh man guys I'm so excited for Dark Souls 2! There's so much potential for linking this new world to Lordran. And that castle? It's obviously the Painted World before it was ravaged during the war with the dragons.
I'm not even gonna pull the whole one souls game is harder than the other thing. I simply believe the game is easier the more familiar you are with it. I find DaS1 easier only in that I can be carried through that, and DeS entirely by muscle memory but after a year away from DaS2 (and coming into Scholar rather than vanilla) I'm less familiar with it so it's more "challenging"
The bosses are all the same as ever, of course, so strafe dancing still entertains me
I honestly wish you could hold GSs like this 2handed instead of over the shoulder. Good, it's fucking retarded.
I also liked how DeS had a more "relaxed" pose for the 1handed, it doesn't look so tryhard.
now can i get banned for this?
i want that sweet prestige figurines, dont even care if the game turns to shit ive enjoyed the series enough its worth it
>an enemy attacks you
>you take damage and lose health
>THIS IS BULLSHIT
People falling for Heide Knights windups are the most hilarious thing
>he stand still
>he is slowly rising his sword hand
>maybe I should back out
>naah fuck that
>BULLSHIT BTEAM BWAA
>holding onto 300K souls in my SL40 anal rodeo twink run character
sweaty hands all the time, i hate that I never know what to spend it on
>maybe I should back out
No, fuck you and fuck anyone that backs out. I just parry Heide Knights
Might have had an argument if anything whatsoever was actually in the realm of "unpredictable" but no it's really god damn obvious. Heide Knights get credit for being a few of the only enemies that are going to laugh at strafing, though
Nope, go fight one again, if he does his long windup attack his sword starts pointing at the ground and he slowly rises it to head level at which point he lunges
Even if you don't notice that shit after falling for it once you should probably back off, its an attack that telegraphed more than covetus demons attacks.
Yeah I mean, I don't mind an unpredictable enemy, it's the damage that I get before the sword connects with my body.
I'm busting malware on a laptop atm, I'll try it in 5 minutes.
How the fuck do i do the dragonlic castle inn ds2, what the fuck is this bullshit, wheres the fucking bonfire, how do you get in and fuck forlorn. there is not even a way to get help, noone summons or cant here. I came all this way in this game to rage quit.
Help my fashion souls, I want to look like a bow knight. Someone who needs mobility, vision and not too Earthy.
in ds2 they hold weapons in the most autistic way thats possible
webm poster here, since i dont have an nVidia card and I don't want to use bloatware raptr I record it with Plays.tv
i just set it to record the last 30 seconds of gameplay when i press a shortcut, and then trim whatever i wanted people to see in the webm converter
>Going through Aldia's keep
>Ogre fucking Kool Aid Man's through the door
>get teleported into his instakill grab attack
Because most of the "heavy" weapons that sit on your shoulder are far wider than their DS1 counterparts
Greatsword looks fine in DS2 but clips all over the place in DS1, on the opposite scale something like the zweihander looks fine in DS1 but hovers in 2
i've heard that if you invade/get invaded/get summoned while alttabbed and have ledditdog, you get a notification. i'm getting no such thing. do i need to change something in the .ini? i haven't found something that might help
>that'd cover the skin
you need sensitivity on a bowknight
>Oh no someone playing DaS2 for the first time took issue with a part of it, time to shitpost
>everything about ds2 is cherry picking
Could try it out, or Wanderer gloves
Targray's might be the best out of them, the others are too bright. Though I want to join the Blue Sentinels cause I'm a Knight and shit
>no Artorias armor in DS2
>no Ornstein armor in DS2
>want to watch some cosplay pvp
>find this guy TearofGrace
>never shuts the fuck up and loves the sound of his own shitty voice
>pretty much nobody else has any decent cosplay pvp videos
>only way to watch his videos is to mute them
this isn't fair
They made the pose around this kind of sword
All the others suffered because of that
That actually happened to me last night when I was helping a guy out with them. Random damage when fatty was on the other side of the room i assume it was because I got caught in the hammer rush before the cutscene
>invade in Horse Rape Valley
>Vengarl is literally immortal
the ai phantoms are on a different level
this is like the only sword of the game that is that big, there must be 2 or 3 that are this big only, and even that sword is not in a proper way, unless its made of paper, you cant hold it that way unless you are hulk. pic related is the correct position for a giant weapon
This is so fucked up...
Been farming Loyce souls all day, putting my symbol down and helping people with the boss (due to me already beating it).
For the first few hours of doing this i got around 2-5 souls, now for the last 3-4 hours of doing it i have received none.
Can someone just give me some? lol
I have no idea what's lying there, but it can't be worth 10 deaths I had trying to make that jump.
So I went and killed the skeletonwheel memelords and got a bonfire reset from the ponytail chick.
I tried using it to respawn the Iron-mask guy, but it says I need to kill the Lord of this area even though I was told there's no boss. What do I do to make this work?
Yeah, I suck for killing a litteraly copy paste boss, a litteraly just mobs boss, and now with the skeleton lords a litteraly just a meme boss as well. I'm not the one who wrote the game pal.
yes, its in the right position, this can be fixed changing armor, while in ds1 you cant fix this shit up and it looks awful no matter what you do
why are das2drones so retarded
why they cant be cool like des and das1 fans
i dont remember something like that in other games
location: the depths waterfall
rules: no healing, no moveswaps/hacking
chain backstabs etc allowed (learn to fucking play instead of whine)
PSID shy_kyashi and you can spectate on twitch if you feel like it
Sprint your ass through the areas and buildings then. The sun and geography with the hills should help you figure out where you are and where those spots are.
I also read you can use silver talismans/chameleon to not aggro the horses if you stand still when the blizzard is up, but that takes a while.
I also read you can use silver talismans/chameleon to not aggro the horses if you stand still when the blizzard is up, but that takes a while.
Just tried this and a horse fucked me up
What real life weapons you wish for this time around?
>tfw the curved swords look fun again
what a great feeling.
Nah, these sort of weapon are always around in these games. They tend to scare away people first, but they are usually strong enough to make the penalty worth it. Chikage has it worst and it's one of the most popular weapons in BB.
its a decent weapon, much better than i expected, if you hit it on something thats too hard, instead of breaking like a katana it would bend, and you can just bend it back in your knee. bronze weapons also last like forever while metal weapons corrode and disappear.
good channel btw
wtf just when i was posting about him
>tell patches im not a cleric
>i actually started as cleric
Whats that weapon that is a pole that disconnects into two or three chained poles. I want that. since we are getting weapons from the east in the game and it seems the east in dark souls 3 has the same weapons maybe some east weapons would be cool. Maybe nun chucks?
I want a greatflail like this guy has.
>If I finish the Loyce knights too fast one of the allied knights will WAIT until the boss spawns and lets another pyromancer spawn before doing his job
This is happening way too often
You know weird part is i watched that guy yesterday randomly for the first time and i saw that and was like who the fuck records that shit. thinking of unsubbing him. plus hes not that trained or any master of weapons or even Armour. So listening to him is a grain of salt.
>he got hit by a car
>thinking of unsubbing him.
oh my god please no
he would totally die if you do this
bring back the server (which is a ramdao) and make it something other than an inferior murakumo
I thought weapons like that are already programmed in the new engine and in bloodborne, like >>128795341
So couldn't they make a simple ball and chain? and other weapons from the east that have that stuff?
When I play DS2 my character sometimes starts doing R2/RT attacks on its own. I can't even count how many deaths were caused by it. I googled and found out that it's rare bug with some controllers when DS2 messes up with gamepad calibration. As a solution people recommend switching to d-input and then use x360ce. At the same time I found few mentions that you can get softbanned for x360ce. Should I be worried?
Once you've activated the shortcut, I thought you had to stand in the middle of it and drop off forward. Maybe not
Either way so many areas are a pain to invade in, Shulva and Brume Tower is like finding a needle in a haystack
Yeah he's very cool. I wish he learned how to comb his fucking hair though, it's not hip or ironic to just get out of bed and not do anything with your hair, it just looks ugly.
SKULLAGRIM SHILL GET OUT!
late but why did nobody tell this guy to just pull the lever at the end of the circle
then just shit on his shitty horse, literally a million times easier than trying to hit it while it's sanicing past you
theyre easy youre just not
bone to be wild
his problem was the skellies
which I agree with are annoying. they can run as fast as you so unless you kite them and roll through the chariot spikes you can't safely hide in the alcoves
>Using my +5 LSS
>Two handed R1 doesn't make a single enemy in this area flinch
>lmao scrub can't git gud
>o-oh actually those guys are actually kind of bullshit...
Im still playing dark souls 2 but i do have this game, should i buy the dlc? it wont ever be on pc right? and snice you have to buy online, how hard is it alone? Im really stuck at amilla or the church boss, i beat blood starved beast.
I hope bluefags don't suck on DS3, I NEED to do a Farneze cosplay as a bluefag
I'm hoping idictment (or some sort of equivelant sinster flag) is automatic. No one in DaS1 wants to indict for fear of looking salty but it means moralfags have a hard time getting invasions.
>Ds3 will be a preqel to Bloodborne
>Yharnam is Carim
>Loran is actually Lordran
>Drangleic is a nightmare realm of Lordran
>the journey from Majula to Iron keep through huntsmans copse, harvest valley, and up earthern peak is in fact a nightmare to show the Iron Kings cruelty, greed and vanity
>the lava is actualy the magic barrier that conceals the keep, just like the clocktower and the fishing hamlet
It would be cool if they had quarterstaves in the game. I mean, why let the twinblade movesets go to waste?
Aside from that I'd like to see less ridiculously over the top STR weapons. I like how they made the Greatsword not look idiotic like its DS1 and DS2 counterparts (I get it, they were Berserk references but they still looked like shit) and I hope the Large Club gets the same treatment so that it looks like a sickass tetsubo.
in all my hundreds of hours of playing dark souls this fucking guy always perplexes me
what is his purpose? why is he here? is he the only one of his kind?
How hard is it without online? i might actually have to pay to play online for help.... are there people that actually play online or is it dead? will I get help? I know online is retarded in this game, you have to actually spend insight for one summon? or something like that?
No my game i can see it drop a shit ton all the time.
I don't get why they put stuff like oversized scythes, 7 foot katanas, ultra greatswords the size of a surf board, but don't do anything like those.
I hate how hammer size scaling goes from slightly oversized mace to tree trunk with no in-between.
I'm playing DaS1 and being a big stronk guy, so I'm focusing on strength and endurance.
I'm level 78 and my stats are currently
Endurance and strenght are now at their soft caps, so what's some stats I should be pumping? I've been thinking about sinking quite a few levels into faith (and a little bit into attunement) so I can be a big strong paladin guy. Is it worth putting vitaltiy and endurance past their soft caps?
Yeah, they shit the bed with npc invaders in sotfs. Also with shulva. Which is weird because they were fine in vanilla, barring shulva.
Fencer sharron is easily th most bullshit of them.
