>there are people who don't rush to the Gravelord Sword as soon as they start the game
>>
>>286022197
They are smart people.
>>
>>286022197

Why would they when they can get a weapon with a better moveset on the way to being upgraded instead of wasting time running down there?

It's not like the beginning of the game is remotely difficult if you aren't a scrub. Unless you need the gravelord sword to progress to the point that you can get the drake sword, which sounds about right for scrublords.
>>
>>286022197
Why would they rush to get that sword unless you look it up. Fuck off casual.
>>
Or you could get the Zweihander. Or you could not be a shit player because the Burg is piss easy with starting gear.
>>
I don't even know where to get that sword.

I usually go
>New Londo Ruins - Master Key to Drake Valley - Darkroot Garden - Undead Parish - Undead Burg

This way the drake never spawns and I have access to the Sunlight alter and Claymore right away.
>>
>>286023783

Why bother when I can literally get glorious 1000 folded Uchigatana for free immediately which lasts me the entire game or until I get super chaos katanah : waifu version.

getting through the catacombs without a sacred weapon would be much harder than getting through the Undead Burg anyway.

If I want to use a meme weapon then ill just go for one of the black knight weapons. Pretty good chance of at least one of them dropping.

I must be the only person who didn't like the Zwei. Slow and it seemed outclassed by other weapons mid-early in the game like BKS.

But maybe that's just a playstyle thing.

You've no right to be calling anyone a scrub if you think the drake sword is useful beyond first run cheese (and you're a scrub if you did that, too).

Zwei just knocks shit flat on their asses. It's also an easily upgraded weapon, +15 chaos for face smashing.

Heide Knight Sword. The vertical slash weak attacks and the thrust being second on the heavy really bother me.

BSS

lol jk

Never played with daggers in DaS before. It seems like it would be a huge pain to get backstab/parry everything.

I agree atleast for the first half of DaS.
The gameplay was far more polished in DaS II though.
>>
>>286026609
Bandits knife is an excellent weapon in DaS
>>
>>286026458
The HKS was so diaappointing to me too
>>
>>286026874
Gameplay is the only thing it has for it. Everything else seems borrowed from DaS and most bosses are humanoids 2-3V1

Also level design is beyond retarded.
>>
>>286026874
>gameplay far more polished in DaSII

How? I hear people say this all the time but I can't think of any way the gameplay was "polished" other than maybe the dual wield system
>>
>>286026874
yeah those fucking hitboxes were perfect
>>
Anyone else have platinum in both games? Some of the covenant shit in dark souls 2 took forever. Did most of it offline against NPCs because Havel tryhards were making it take even longer.
>>
>>286027442
it isn't.

Dark Souls didn't have the 360 degree tracking on all enemies.

Black Knight Halberd is definitely the smartest weapon to rush. Nothing else even comes close. Only problem is it relies on RNG.
>>
used a black knight sword (dropped from the first BK in the burg) on my first run through and loved it. The weight of the strikes, the power, easily my favorite weapon. Used that and a grass crest shield for basically the entire game.

Oh man, the fucking claymore. Nerfed every single patch and still amazing.

So we can all agree Drakeblood was the best "Knight" Armor Set in the series right?
>>
>>286031629
gameplay is nothing without a quality field for it

imagine a platformer with magnificent controls and techniques, but the only level is a straight line

that's obviously an extreme example but you get my point, the things you do when you press buttons in das2 are great, but everything surrounding it including level design, enemy placement and such aren't at the same level
>>
>>286022197
It's great for speedruns, my fastest overall route was a Gravelord Sword run

because I'm trash
>>
>>286035718
>Manus on first try

Yeah you're full of shit unless you looked up shit about him before it. That dark magic would catch ANYONE off guard.
>>
>>286022197
that strong attack decimates most of the difficult enemies in the game. tomb of the giants is a joke
>>
>>286039947
I killed him on my first try with 20 Estus and probably a dozen humanity at level 80 or so, does that count?

Thats not a big deal, it does that because of the fire enchant.

The problem is they fucked with the movesets and the BKS model.
