hi everyone
>>
Four Kings beheld the crowd below,
Fifty men their swords did show,
then Fifty mortal hearts did stop.
now Fifty headstones, cloaked in snow.
The Grey King, first among his race,
his eyes were cold, and grim his face.
He took the Fifty, gave them hope,
Which the First King shattered with his ancient mace.
The Fire King, second to the Grey,
beheld the Fifty, and Twelve did slay.
The Twelve with tortured faces dropped.
The Fire King roared to the rest, “Obey”
The Night King, third in royal rank
did breath a fume of death which stank
so violently, that Ten did fall,
their bodies gross, but their faces blank.
The Fourth King, nameless in all but deed,
was called the greatest, but fell to greed.
Twenty-Seven life-strings the King did snip.
and scoured the corpses, to sate his need.
But one outlived the Kings’ sojourn,
that man cried out as his soul did burn.
The Four Kings spared the man to preach,
and warn the land from the Kings ne’er away to turn.
Fifty graves for Forty-Nine men,
the final man cursed, and wept again
when at last his time came to be slain,
He still cries out, every now and then.

So /dsg/, I haven't played DS2 in a month or so. I played it pretty much constantly when it came out, and I've logged a good 300 hours in. I quit because PvP was pretty much (insert heavy armor or dickwraith), fifty buffs pre-fight, and some cheese weapons/build. Is it still the same, or has the meta finally shifted? I won't bother going back to arena if everyone and their mom has gmb/oath/blabla with magix spam

The meta has shifted, but magic spam is valourized. Everyone buffs. But, that being said, at least people use a wide variety of weapons.

Ciaran shouldn't have picked a fight she couldn't win. She initially had the advantage against her draconic foe, but as time passed, she found herself tiring...with Kalameet showing little damage and no signs of slowing down. Suddenly, it happened...Ciaran could no longer keep up... As the dragon jumped at her, she ran underneath...only to stumble from her exhaustion. The fight was over, she had lost.

Kalameet cranes his neck around to look for his foe, only to see her collapsed on the ground, desperately trying to get back up. The dragon realizes that she was at his mercy and grins at the thought. Taking a few steps backwards, he begins to position himself right above the knight of Gwyn... She looks up in horror as Kalameet sits down upon her. When he lifts himself up, there is no sign of Ciaran, except her two tracers on the ground...until you look at the base of the dragon's tail. There, lies Kalameet's large anus...with Ciaran's thin legs poking out. Wanting to escape her tight prison, Ciaran begins to struggle and squirm, unwittingly massaging the dragon's prostate causing waves of pleasure to flow through the beast. His cock throbs with with each of her movements, preparing itself for release. Kalameet roars in satisfaction and tenses his anus muscles, drawing her further and further inside. She screams out as she slides deeper into the monster she was sent to kill, but no one but the dragon could hear her. Soon, her feet slip past his moist hole and she sinks all the way inside her captor. This drives Kalameet over the edge, causing him to blow his load.. His cum splatters across the forest floor. Satisfied, the ancient beast walks of, leaving behind a pond size puddle of dragon semen with the knight's trademark weapons floating in the center.

I've been away.. Just did the DLC, wasn't as bad as everyone made it sound.

Questions though..

1. Does Mundane still work the same?

2. I know length of weapon buffs are dependent on stats now, but is their damage still the same? (+50 element * 30% element on weapon increase) or whatever the fuck it was?

3. Dark weapon apparently hits the same as Resonant weapon now?

4. Are phys builds viable now? Or to get max damage should I still be infusing and then buffing?

I read the patch notes but they didn't really help much.

>>74978059
you could try to get 25 faith and 20 attunement after lowering vigor so you can attune sacred oath, or, if you're going pure dex, throw some more points into end (you don't have third dragon ring from what I see) and max out your vit at 14 for better stamina regen without reducing your bonus.

I just found out I can talk to Vendrick. The way he talks about the crowns seems like he'll do something once you collect all of them.

Also I wish Drakeblood Armor wasn't a shiny black, it'd look great if it was the same color as EKS or Alva. And enough with the capes From. I want a knight, not a holy crusading paladin.

Do go into Blighttown from the Depths. Go in from the Valley of Drakes. You're missing literally nothing going in from there than opposed to going in from the Depths. Also, make sure you got the Rusted Iron Ring and the Doll from the Asylum, back tracking is a bitch without teleports.

Well, I mean I don't really mind it being a shiny black, I just can't combine it with other knight looking armor without it looking mismatch. I wish I knew how to retexture. I'd retexture this just for that purpose. Right now I just roll with this because there are too many capes.

What's your name? If it's something like Ricard you can screw up and end up changing other shit like the name of the Rapier, maybe that caused a crash.

One thing that I do is I have a character with a shitty name like 'adhergdslkfg' and then search for his name while he's loaded in the game, then when I switch to my actual character, there should be like two values left which display the actual name (you don't even need to do a new scan or anything)

Yes, but Enchanted is the worst infusion. It adds like a C scaling that scales off your Intelligence. You might as well just do a Magic infusion and then buff it with Crystal Magic Weapon for more damage than an Enchanted infusion.

Goddamn, this feels so fucking good after trying to do a sorcery/rapier build, every kill with the greatsword is so satisfying, just seeing it slam into the ground, and pulling it back up to finish them off, throwing a fireball or two, just to draw out an enemy that's a bit too far, or something.

I'm probably not going to use this for pvp, since I suck at timing with anything besides the longsword, but goddamn it this is fun!

99 int is the only time when you should use Enchanted. Even then it gives you physical damage that scales off your int, is that really what you want? CMW + a magic infusion will usually do more damage since most people don't have very high magic resistance compared to their physical damage resistance.

How do other players work into the lore of these games?
With summons and red phantoms?

With Licia, she became a red phantom and tried to kill you twice. Then you invaded her world, and killed her.
Does Licia die when you kill her or does she just come back to life like you do?

What about other players? Are they just the remnants and souls of other soldiers and knights who were on the same journey as you before they died? How are you able to summon them?
What about you being summoned personally to another world to help another player?

I'm so confused.

No, it's like the Sun Sword in that it becomes worse when you infuse it. They're one of the few good physical damage weapons without infusions. Pop a resin on it for extra damage if you like though.

Yeah, the fact that Miura outputs maybe 4 chapters a year nowadays shows that he's really burnt out. It's such a shame too because I fucking love Berserk. I think he spends most of the time on his art though, obviously you can tell it's super detailed and that he's a perfectionist.

Dead Again is really powerful if you invade somewhere like the first part of FoFG. Half the time they don't know how to react to the spell and run into a body, I've dealt like 2000 damage with just a single corpse once.
Soul Appease probably doesn't count as gimmicky, but I never see anyone use it and that thing is OP as fuck, mainly due to it being near-unavoidable for guaranteed 700ish damage

Dunno if there's any other gimmicky spells that are any use though

Maybe make it so that any time an invasion occurs in an area you're in with your ring equipped, you automatically get pulled to the invaded world.

And when you spawn in, automatically drop the invader's max health by half, triple the host's defenses, and make the host immune to all damage so long as you persist in their world, but only if they're in the Way of the Blue. All others just get the beefed up defenses

I don't see the point in that, when I invade as a blue I don't heal. I am here to get in, try and help the host and get out. Not go full tryhard in an already iffy even fight.

What dood? From has already made it WAY easy for invaders.

They can invade you when you're full hollow with 50% reduced max health, even after you beat the boss for that area.

You can be invaded back to back. The only way to stop invasions is to burn a Human Effigy. Which also prevents summons.

Damage is still mediocre, but it's an effective staggering tool which, thanks to the delay between casting and impact, lets you follow up with a soul spear as their either staggered or coming out of the roll to avoid the shower.

The tracking really helps it now, I usually pull off about 200 damage with it, and while that isn't amazing, you get a lot of casts for it and it helps to keep distance

>>74983594
That's the only thing that invaders have going for them, really. The host has a shitload of ways to heal while the invader cannot, there is a time limit so the host can just hide (not to mention that the unveil spell doesn't work on hosts), they can summon people who are pretty much always available, they have the seed thingy in case you decide to hide behind the mobs and they only need to pay 3000 souls if they die due to the Ring of Life protection.

Well I suppose the invaders have mobs to help them out, but there's nothing stopping the host from just running back to the bonfire since mobs will only follow you for a few metres (remember when From said they were going to fix that shit? Like how they had the trailer where the ogre reacted to getting cheesed with arrows)

To play devil's advocate, you really can't have the Invader have the advantage in every scenario. You as the invader are impeding someones progress. You get help from the level itself for the price of not being able to heal. The only time I consider it unfair is if the host summons help. Then you really have to work hard.

People run around like assholes all the time regardless of invasion or competative game in anything if it means they might stand a chance to survive. Frankly I would have loved for them to make Chameleon and silver talismans a Red only thing.

Only mobs, and only if the host doesn't use a seed. Most other stuff affects invaders just as much as the host(more, actually, because they can't heal). I don't expect to have some tremendous advantage when invading, but the host really shouldn't have access to heals, summons, seeds, cops, switches/etc. that only they can activate, and all the other bullshit at the same time.

Going to stop you at the switches thing, that is only an issue when you hit shit like the current dlc's switchs.

Them using seeds is fine, its a consumable and a great majority of players have no clue where to get them.

Cops are rare enough, if they worked better I might be inclined to agree.

Host is fine with heals, no way in hell should a host have disabled healing just cause they got invaded. 99% of people would just jump off a cliff the moment you jumped into their world. Cause unlike you a lot of Reds would dick around and hide until the host died by attrition.

Can't go wrong with an Estoc.

Or any rapier, really.

I don't frequent here so can someone explain to me why that is?

how does leo ring work?
what counts as counter damage? is it just backstabs and riposte
>>
how do I beat the lmao2purusuers?
I can't hit both of them until they die
>>
>>74985364
stone sword seems good but the heavy dex investment seems kinda offputting, are there any good builds for it that don't involve 40+ dex and an uninfused sword?
>>
>>74985412
No one has taken the time to make it
if you want you could and link it here so we can add it to the OP
>>
>>74985436
Counter-hits, hitting something while its mid attack.
>>
>>74985204
Use a covenant crest ring instead. Same weight as Flynn's, but doesn't mess up your equip load estimate.

Looks pretty good, but what should I use as a backup (aside from 2 other crossbows) if the whip breaks?
>>
>>74985446
try curse
need bravery

>>74985202
Damn youre so edgy
>>
>>74985446
Let the one that spawns to your left hit you with its curse attack. The right one will despawn afterwards,

Left one drops the ring.
>>
>>74985436
By hitting someone during their attack, you deal extra damage based on the weapon's counter modifier. Pretty much every time you trade hits, you're both getting counter hits.
>>
>>74985436
>Backstabs and riposte
That's not counter damage at all. That's critical. Critical =/= counter. Counter is when you hit someone during their attack animation.
>>
>>74985475
I have some other things going on but I'll do that in a bit, sure. Shadow Tower, especially Abyss, is great. It shouldn't be left out of the fun. It's not nearly as aged as badly as KF either.
>>
>>74985075
Wasn't it possible for multiple reds to invade one person in Dark Souls? I don't get how that happens when there is an invasion timer cooldown, or does that cooldown only apply once the invasion is over?
>>
>>74985520
something like the hand axe or broken straight sword that looks like its got some wear on it

Not reds, but forest could see guardians,blues the works.

Why the shit would it get nerfed? It's still worse than buffing your weapon, but at least pure physical is viable now.
