Have you been having fun with friends?
>>
>>121537936
I completely disagree.

FaP extends the one-shot area far past where it would normally be, I don't think I got one-shot by anything in the game.

It also gives you increased weight and stamina, both things you don't really have access to at SL1.

I was reluctant to use it in my playthough, but after I popped it on I had a much easier time.
DWGR gives you a few extra frames if you dodge, FaP gives you a chance to survive the attack if you miss the dodge.

3 frames is not enough of a difference to risk dying to those attacks

seriously fuck this game sometimes. How do you reliably get off the top of the blighttown elevator? Leaving blighttown is the only difficult part of the level, I don't know why anyone complains about any other part.
>>
>>121539387
my last soul related run was a sl7 wanderer run, i got tired of using clubs.
It was much cooler than sl1 run because you aren't stuck to clubs.
>>
>>121539552
holy fucking shit mate. have you tried not being a bitch? fucking hell.
>>
>>121539785
You don't. The blighttown elevator is a buggy piece of shitty and that whole path upwards is a deathtrap of bad collision
>>
>>121538971
Hollow Shield and Balder Shield are both better, but they're semi-rare enemy drops
If you go back the the Asylum, you can kill hollow Oscar for the Crest Shield
If you go to the Valley of Drakes, you can find an Undead Dragon miniboss guarding the Dragon Crest Shield

Again, it's not a big deal at all
Knight Shield just bothers me personally because it weighs 5.5
I usually prioritize finding one of those above shields so I don't need to use it.

>>121539809
I don't use clubs at SL1
I'm using a Battle Axe

get on
if you walked straight on go to the top right corner, furthest and rightest from the platform
ride up and walk forward up and off the right side

Also lost 6k souls and a humanity (of which I've never been able to use a free one yet) to fucking curse frogs. I'm mad. I didn't even know that's what they were doing. But I fell down a God damn pit and 4 of them ganged up on me.

There are a lot of better options, but it's still a good weapon.

But then, that can be said about almost any weapon, it usually comes down to your skill with it and not how good the weapon is.

Also, special weapons are really fun to use when you know how to.

Same here. I usually have some trouble from time to time with him and Kalameet, they're some of the few bosses with undodgeable attack sequences, and that doesn't end very well in higher NGs.
>>
>>121556656
Kalameet as well, forgot about him. Not a fun guy to fight and doesnt really give much of a reward for it either.

>>121555324
It's a specific weapon for buff builds or vit gouges.
It's a slow type greatsword with standard range, and a pretty good 2hr2 explosion.

What's the best new player gift for Dark Souls?
I know I can ask google but I want your guys' opinion. The master key seemed nice and all but I haven't gotten much use out of it yet and there seems to be some story stuff I'm missing on.
>>
>>121560516
no
>>
>>121561402
pendant or nothing
>>
>>121561469
You get stuff for nothing?
>>
>>121561402
master key is the best, since it gives you quick access to the grass crest shield and havel ring, and also lets you skip the depths + most of blighttown.
>>
>>121561402
pendant or old witch's ring. because talking to the fair lady ASAP to ease her suffering.
>>
>>121561402
Master key is really useful if you know your way around the game. Firebombs are an useful item all around and you can get the demon's great hammer with it. Other than that, they don't really make a difference.
>>
>>121561402
Only the master key has any use but I wouldn't recommend it on your first playthrough. You can get all the gifts through out the game, so pick anything you'd like.
>>
>>121561402
old witches ring or pendant. master key just removes some content from the game.
>>
>>121561551
If only I knew what part of the depths I would have skipped. I have a habit of turning around and going back the other way in a fork if I get too far in one direction and start seeing more forks. I still don't have a good mental map of that area.
>>
>>121562427
It starts you off from the exit to blighttown(the door in new londo).

when you summon a friend in dark souls 1 can you actually progress the game together or how does it work?

you progress through the area until either you die, he dies, or you kill the boss of the area at which point he is sent back to his world

Forest and Darkwraith still work fine. Darkmoon is possible to do in a reasonable amount if you don't get discouraged by FAILED TO INVADE. Dragon and Gravelord are probably the least active but still doable.

That sort of shit has been around since Demon's Souls.

I don't know why people think it'll ever go away.

It didn't go away in Dark Souls. Didn't go away in Dark Souls 2. Didn't go away in Bloodborne. It is not going away in Dark Souls 3.

If you want this shit to go away, have From make a LAN mode.

FAP is not good for SL1 runs other then NG+0.
After NG+1 it's useless and it's much better to use DWGR + hornet for levels and RTSR for bosses.

it's a meme. miyazaki had said that players that wanted the full experience should get the pendant or nothing at all. funny thing is, this can mean that everything else is inferior to the pendant OR that the pendant is as good as nothing and going in empty handed is the best way to enjoy the game. at the time it had created a lot of theories and miyazaki was probably laughing his ass off. at any rate, it can be traded for a souvenir of reprisal, but almost as soon as you can get to the darkmoon tomb, you can also kill lautrec, so it's kind of unnecessary

Man, Pursuer is such a cool design.

If only they gave him a bigger moveset that actually made use of all those weapons he had on his back.

That, and have him use more often the "heat up" moves he would only use if he stabbed you with the curse sword attack.

He's basically trying to get people to shit on Menas by pretending to be an overenthusiastic heavily autistic fan. Last time Menas and I spoke, he was feeling fairly unhappy with his level of skill and autismanon was making him uncomfortable.

So, yeah, fairly nice guy who used to drawfag pictures of other anons characters seems to have been pretty much successfully run out of these threads by our resident shitposter.

Most overrated fucking boss in the entire series. I hate this guy because smug DeSfags think that his existence is proof that their game is the hardest in the series.

DeSfags only say he's the hardest boss ever because every other boss in DeS save Allant is a complete pushover in comparison.

And Flamelurker is the only boss aside from Allant that actually attempts to be aggressive. And no, fighting him with a pure melee build doesn't mean he's automatically hard. He's easy as hell to side dodge and punish his highly telegraphed "hand AoE" attacks.

Basically head straight for rickert, then release griggs, too. The entirety of the game can be cheesed with soul arrows; you have even more room to breath if you're not going pure spells and will have an actual weapon. Rush for the dark sorceries once they're available.

So, what exactly is the Dark Hand? Is it a spell? Is Kaathe beefing up your humanity so you can do magic with it?

It took me a good 3 or 4 tries to get her. I wound up summoning Steelheart Ellie to get her to take some aggro. She wound up surviving the fight. Not as hard of a boss fight as I thought it was going to be.

Sinh took me a lot longer, but after beating him I felt absolutely elated. Having Edde certainly helped though.
>>
>>121585842
You can, just do a running attack, should stunlock him in one hit.

If you want the sword, just get a lightning halberd, wait until Seath gets really close (close enough that he is about to attack), break the crystal and while he staggers run to his back a hit the tail near the end.

Remeber to be below 25% load.

You can also stagger him with a headshot, that will stop the buff

For Seath, you're doing it wrong. That fight is about getting in and out at the right moments. Once you break the crystal, run down and stay close to his belly, right in the front, he'll most likely do the crystal wave attack, then you move to the side of his belly, and it won't hit you. You can get a lot of hits in that way, but as soon as his attack is over, get the fuck out of there because he'll hit you with the next one.

After he's done attacking, just run straight to his belly, and once again he'll do the wave, move to the side again and repeat. If you have nice damage output you can kill him right after you break the crystal.

I'm thinking of making a Str or Str/Faith build (ds1 and ds2). However I'd like to know if the investment in faith is worth it (buffs and heals). I like the idea of having buffs etc. but I feel I would be stretching too thin with the stats.

Is the buff damage worth the loss of survivability (HP/Stamina)? I'm strictly speaking of PvE here as I'm too new for PvP. Can someone who've played those builds can provide some input?
>>
>>121588780
By the end of the game you should have near 40 end, vit, str and faith, so you won't be losing much
>>
>>121588780
Dude you dont need viability in pve, holy shit.
>>
>>121588780
Since you're strictly speaking of pve honestly the faith investment is worth it by a large margin. People may attest to quality builds being good, and they can be, but they do less damage than their infused/buffed brethren. You have a lot of variety with investing in just faith as well. Pyromancies/miracles everywhere, you can attack with elements and most everything is weak to lightning save for eleum loyce. That place is trashed by fire. And with the faith investment you could honestly choose to do some int as well.

I'm tanky as shit, like 900 defense physical everywhere. And 250 elemental as well due to +10 drakekeepers set and what not. And that's with 30 fth/int and the rest investment into hitting soft caps on other various things regarding strength related weaponry. My thing was investing in 30 faith for healing, getting like 22 atn later on, and getting 30 int only after I felt I was tanky enough. You should have no issue whatsoever. Especially if you're summoning or doing full co-op runs. People will love you for being tanky and healer/buffer.

>>
>>121588780
Yes, basically. I've done clerics in both 1 and 2 and they both work fine. Its more worthwhile in DS1, it felt like my heals did more and really extended my survivability by supplementing estus. In 2 you'll need a much higher faith to get much power out of your heals, from what I recall, and offensive miracles kind of suck in 2, but 2 boasts the nice bonus of very healing spell being a party heal.
>>
>>121589347
kush
>>
>>121589416
Just to correct you a little, the healing miracles in DS2 do not stack with faith and heal a base amount. But from playing DS2 almost religiously I have to say the heala can be quite overpowered. Especially with moderate attunement and stacking heal spells. Aside from that the offensive miracles are indeed a bit lack luster when compared to exceedingly powerful spells like climax. In which no lightning offensive miracles come close. They do hit rather hard like all sorceries and magics however. But there are indeed better options!
>>
Is it just me or do you get a lot of beginners when you summon Dragon Covenant fuckers?
>>
>>121590026
What? I'm pretty sure all healing miracles scale with fth, doing the listed HP heal at required FTH.

Requirement does not mean scaling though, and is improper terminology. Scaling with imply it becomes stronger the higher the user's faith, whereas meeting the requirement would do as intended for the spell. And you can simply spam spices to get the requirement of the spell lower to have the same intended effect.

DaS1 btw, but it also happens in 2/DeS. I don't think it's about winning or losing, I win most of my fights anyway. It's not that I don't enjoy it, I've had a lot of good fights & talks after the fights. Do you remember the first times you were invaded, the adrenaline rush? I don't think I ever got rid of that feel in the Souls series.
>>
>>121591895
I'd say DaS>BloodBorne>DeS>DaS2 personally. I know there are some who don't like to class BB as a Souls game, but that's incredibly dumb honesty. Its heart is the pounding fury of a Souls game with a higher emphasis on speed, and it feels silky smooth to play, plus the setting is incredibly good. I ended up liking it more than DeS if I'm honest.

I was in the same position 2 weeks ago.
Here's my recommended ez mode sorcerer

>roll a pyromancer
>put STR to 12 (I think it's default on pyro) and DEX to 10 and never touch it again
>get some early VIT if you're a pussy, not really needed if you're good at rolling
>don't get any END whatsoever
>get enough ATT for 2-3 slots and dump everything else into INT
>get a Spear and keep upgrading it (eventually +10), it's mostly for backup when you can't use spells
>ring the first bell then go either blighttown shortcut or moonlight butterfly
>do the one you didn't do above
>go sens and free logan
>buy out all his spells as soon as you can he will leave and the regular sorc guy will sell you one more copy of homing and spear
>finish anor londo
>go to the giant blacksmith and turn in +10 spear and buttefly soul for MB Horn
>if you killed all the anvil demons in Sens and found all the Demon Titanite you'll be able to get the horn +5 which paired with high INT will do great damage on almost everything
>go Archives after soulvessel placed
>do logan's quest and buy all his shit, get his staff after he goes mad
>go DLC
>get Dark Bead
>roll everything else in the game with (crystal) spears and dark bead

I also recommend not giving a shit about armor and going with fashion souls and fast roll ring. The other ring the 20k sorc boost. I also use the Oolacile bitch's head for extra spell dmg given and taken.

As a final note, it is way more fun if you're a glass cannon. That's why I keep my VIT low (at 15 you get exactly 5 bars). Also can put 22 into END if you want exactly 4 bars of stamina and more weight for armor. The Bfly Horn costs only 1 stam bar per poke so it's very cheap in that regard and very very strong with high INT. Not that you'll care, spells themselves are even more ridiculous.

>Do you remember the first times you were invaded, the adrenaline rush? I don't think I ever got rid of that feel in the Souls series.

lf it's a good rush that's great. lt's the rush of winning (win about 4 out of 5 fights on any of the 4 characters) against other great pIayers. lt's great to win most of the time but it's more fun to be the guy bowing over you when you Iose rather than be the

Correct listing:

DaS:PTD>BB=DeS>DaS1=SotFS>>>DaS2

TOH will probably bump BB up to PTD-tier.

HOWEVER, I want to make clear that the all the tiers are very minor, except the one that states that vanilla DaS2 <<< all others. The differentiation between the rest of the tiers mostly comes down to which aspects of these games you value the most, they're all great

>>
>>121597747
Rolling has been overhauled for Dark Souls II. In the previous game, roll speed was divided into three distinct classes, depending on your character's equip load. Your character's rolling speed and distance would drastically change if you fell under one of the three limits- 100% equip load, 50% equip load, and 25% equip load.

In Dark Souls II, however, rolling has only one hard limit at 70%. All rolling below that will have the same animation, but as your equip load decreases, your roll speed and distance will gradually increase. Attempting to roll with over 70% equip load will result in a "fat roll", with its own, slower, animation. Equipping more than 100% of your character's equip load will gradually slow your character's walking and sprinting speed, and equipping more than 120% will make rolling and sprinting impossible. However, even above 120% equip load, one can always perform rolling attacks and backstep attacks.

Rolls have breakpoints, the sliding scale is on stamina regen penalty.
