How do I into DS3 invasions? I was pretty good at it and won most of them a year or so ago, but I stopped playing and suck ass now. I win maybe half the time; I either get a bunch of retards that chase me into mobs and trade SS swings with my GS, or a pw-summoned/twinked gank squad with 3000 hours between them that mop the floor with me.

I'm SL 30, have all the tools (rings, consumables, etc), and know the levels pretty well. Do I just have to keep practicing? I play kind of aggressively, which probably doesn't help, but I don't enjoy waiting for them to come to me, nor fighting reactively.

Any advice on my loadout? The dex is for Aquamarine Dagger, which I use instead of a SS for fashion. Pls no bully.

I was just being polite. If somebody has to chug while fighting me, especially if they have to chug as many times as that guy did, then they're absolutely shit at pvp.

You fucking retard, if he wanted an honorabru duel he would have gone to the arena. You should have run back to the bonfire and summoned a bunch of dudes while slapping on Way of Blue to fuck him over as hard as possible.

It's an invasion, he rudely barged into your world uninvited with the singular goal to murder your ass, so it's your own damn fault for not treating it like it an invasion.

I've not done enough play at that level to make a comment on whether or not it's "bad"
As I'm sure you know, in invasions lots of weapons that blow ass in duels work just fine, but when you're against proper gank squads anything less than the best kind of hurts.
You can get a lot of mileage out of raw DSA or raw/heavy twinaxes. The stat reqs are lower so you can get more endurance. They hit hard, especially when buffed with pine resin. Twinaxes in particular can be pretty scary with their L1s. Plus, if you're invading in the swamps, people standing in water have less lightning absorption.

pure casting sorc is nice

pure casting pyro is a chore imo since you need to spend a gorillion souls on spells and upgrading your flame, and you need to go down to blighttown every time you want to see quelana and shit, and you don't get that many casts unlike a sorcerer

I summon all the time. I just think it's fun and there's no downside to it apart from boosted boss HP. I also laugh my head off when I see phantoms die to stupid shit.

I hate summoning people who ran a low SL through the game and just melt the boss, though.

DS3 pvp is aight

Not to stir any shitpost, but I just played for the first time DS2 and DS3 back to back, all DLC, and have to say, DS2 was better.
Jesus fuck what were they thinking with the gameplay of 3? I did enjoy the fastpacing, but removing poise, the FUCKING DAMAGE of certain enemies(not the bosses, the bosses in this game were laughable easy, minus Gael and Nameless king) and the absolute nerf of everything that was not a sword, curved or straight. Any other weapon feels like you're gimping yourself.
I'm not even gonna enter in the matter of pvp, because against retards, anything can be viable, but the pve in DS3 fucking sucks. Shame tho, loved the new engine, the effects and models of a lot of things, I hope DaS really does come back with a new engine.

furi would be half the game it is without a quality OST, also half the OST is carpenter brut if thats what you meant. i know the song used is from hotline. yet another game that i'll note is really carried by it's OST and feels over reals

Fuck you, leatherman.

As an invader, I get plenty of shameless hosts. Running around in havel and fallen knight sets, swinging at me with the same shitty meta dlc weapons. Trying to land the L1 on the twin greatswords or some billshit, while some faggot he summoned in the back is throwing crystal soul Spears.
And then they'll get lucky and one guy will hit me, opening me up to get hit one more time by him, and for a summon or sentinel to get a hit in. Maybe I'll survive a team combo like that, but no, then you have a tiny sliver of a chance to get away before they pull out their rapiers and throwing knives to chip away your last bit of health left.

Not to mention, some boss arenas can be used as safe zones by the hosts. And you won't even be able to see what they're doing, cause you got a fog door in your face. That's when you might as well crystal out.

At least they nerfed the seed a while back.

Invaders have a lot going against them, especially in ds3. And the most damning thing of all, is that after they finally put you down after enduring a 3, maybe 4 man summon squad with a sentinel as a +1, they'll still walk up to you, fallen knight set on, the dark moon blade buff still on their straight sword, sun bros following them around like a couple obedient dogs, and they'll walk right up to where you died, and fucking point to it. Like they proved absolute superiority and won the right to command you to kneel, like their fucking dogs they summoned.

I just use minimum stats at SL 20. Everyone else does shit damage as well, so it evens out. I switch to Dark Hand to deal with other twinks.

I like to abuse the phantom range on the first 2h R1, and like rolling into L2->R1R1R1. The L2 will carry you forward out of the roll, and it catches a lot of people off guard or as they're starting to wind up to punish. (Obviously, don't try this against greatweapons.)

SS are still king, turtling is even stronger now cause ccs and sabre are ded. Pkcs,and scimmy are cs kings along with scar which is a pure fire cs with r2 that casts spells.

Crystal infusions are really strong along with dark and chaos. Mages are still pretty strong with homing soul mass spam,heysel pick is high tier. Str and dex are now superior to quality on infusable weps. Quality still gets uninfusable weps which are often near best in class

This is neat but I don't get why you'd track invader levels rather than host levels. Invaders figure out what level to be to get hosts, not the reverse.

Str is extremely stat efficient, allowing you to have more vit and defenses or high vigor or even put some points in fth for regen. A 27str splitleaf greatsword(new dlc halberd) at +10 gets 500+ ar and gets 599ar at 66str. Str does have access to harald cgs and exile which are both good. Harald for its insta poise weapon art. Str can easily wield greatshields. Yhorms with darksword is still somewhat good, ledos greathammer and spiked mace are excellent choices for invasion weapons. Warpick and mace are poise rollcatch machines that can go toe to toe with top meta. More basic options like heavy claymore scales excellently with str
>>
>>201652020
This started as a ganking/anti-twinking project. If the invaders are level 30, the hosts must be at least that level or a little bit under it. Also, you can get invaded while looking for worlds to invade, so you can invade invaders. That is if they haven't killed that area's boss yet.

Not surprising, there's a shitload of Large Titanite inside Carthus, Smouldering Lake and Irithyll, and the only way to get to +7 at that point is to do the Pickle Pee trade and get a Crystal Lizard in Smouldering Lake. Either that, or kill Dancer early and farm Lothric Castle.

>>201652247
there's virtually no difference between SL 20 and SL 40 in terms of power anyway, you just get access to some more weapons at higher levels. The only people who really have to fear antitwinks are SL 1s who're invading SL 20s, outside of that it's just ordinary ganking.

>If the invaders are level 30, the hosts must be at least that level or a little bit under it.
you can't extrapolate that information from what you've got, it isn't like each invader who invades you invades at the same level

I prefer STR weapons overall desu, they feel more satisfying even when they are not as efficient.

>>201648939
1. You probably don't need that much Vitality, armor is worthless without utilizing hyperarmor, and hyperarmor is worthless in PvE since you should dodge instead of trade.

2. That extra Int/Fai is something of a waste unless you're actually regularly casting utility spells.

That aside, more Endurance is good, and you're more or less on the right track.

But you can. If a lot of people are SL 60, for example, that must mean that they get lots of activity invading at that SL.

this part was very poorly worded, when I meant "at the same level" I didn't mean literal SL. I just meant that they aren't invading at the same rate/frequency. Some of your datapoints will be worth more than others from the invader's perspective.

Yuria was the sort of girl in peril scenario they would do more often
>NPCs hint about a girl being captured and tortured
>there's a "puzzle" mechanic to getting access to the tower
>there's a deranged dominatrix vibe giving crazy executioner in the game

Really would like there be a quest regarding a girl in peril where if certain conditions are met and if you don't rescue her before certain event flags you'll find her swinging from the gallows like the physics corpses in the Undead Settlement. Perhaps entering the area starts an execution sequence and you can fight your way to her and hopefully kill the NPC about to execute her before they pull the lever and the trapdoor slams open with a thundering bang and her neck becomes all stretched and goose-like as she drops and the coiled noose grips her neck in it's deadly embrace.

And if you don't like hanging peril scenarios specifically there could be other types of events like that which would give players incentive to revisit old areas.

>>
>>201657976
no just the phys, don't infuse with non physical infusions if you want to use the projectiles, tho crow's quills knives do 0 damage anyway so feel free to infuse to your heart's intent, but and poison is bad and bleed fucking sucks now so don't worry about them

Basically there are 4 defence tiers, and most split damage will get put into a lower one because they only do 200/200 (each damage is calced separately)

but when you riposte each of those are doing 600/600~ because that's how ripostes work and also because daggers have a very high critical rating, making them get affected much less by a defence tier

That was my DS1 pvp build for level 70, the Black Iron Set was maxed out of course.

Maybe try a Notched Whip/Guardian Tail ailment build? Use stuff like pyromancies as well to hinder your opponent and deal heavy damage to them as well.

There are no builds in dks1. 45/40/40/40, flip, favor, mother, naked. Just toggle escape. Or, if you're a faggot you could do the same thing but with 43/40/40/45 and 10 atn for black flame.

fastroll, try to hit one of the important poise breakpoints, 41 is solid, 31 is probably the minimum really useful poise
Other than that, basically just don't use a shit weapon, almost all weapon classes have their strengths and weaknesses in terms of regular play and you can make them work if you're careful and understand the game's nuances.
If you're wanting to be optimal, all that matters is AR because you're only ever going to backstab, but it's more fun to actually use your weapons.

Nah, I messed up the build a little bit

Shield is meant to be uninfused, broadsword is meant to be lightning+5

It's just something I used myself, was never a meme. With that build though, people only did 1/50th of my health if they focused physical damage.

Yeah, I guess with the way defense works in DaS a +10 weapon wouldn't do much to you. But at this point you might as well just go in Giant's instead of Black Iron and use FaP instead of BTSR, that way you can carry more shit and tank even better with more health and defense. It's not like you'd get low enough for Blue Tearstone to work, and if you did you'd probably just get backstabbed anyway. I dunno.

Giant's is the one that has the most defense if I'm not mistaken, and RoF would let you have more health for more tanking. More health means you don't need to get into BTSR range :^)

then you must be very ignorant and new to pvp.
The shield guarantees staggers with the weapon art. and Demon Scar has a true combo with r1r1r2(if one has black flame equipped)
you're literally playing with a meta-tier arena build (minus tears of denial and the hard-ring swaps) vs people at sl 45, and still nearly losing.

DS2 isn't meant to be played reactively. You're meant to prepare for everything in advance and plan out everything you do accordingly with your surroundings and shit. You only need one or two points in ADP to be at 86 agility which already gives you enough iframes to dodge shit.
SM and no complete orbs are shit, I'll give you that. But having to invest into stats to be able to do shit in an RPG is perfectly fucking fine.

You see, now those are legit complaints, bitching about ADP is just petty and absolutely fucking retarded because like I said, it can be fixed within half an hour of starting the fucking game.

Then again, I actually like videogames so I'm willing to compromise in matters like that instead of throwing a tantrum and discarding the whole fucking game.

First, you get the curved sword movement and everything that entails. Second, you get an r1 > black flame true combo for big damage. Third, flame surge for cancer. Lastly, because your main weapon is your cast tool, you free up your off hand for something like bellvine or the dragon shield. Bellvine frees up a ring slot (no more Sage ring), the shield is good for spacing. If someone get's hit by the shield you can go for a free r1 > black flame true combo.
I might have forgotten something but TL;DR curved sword moveset is good with added benefits. I don't know if I'd call it "so fucking broken," except for maybe extra-passive flame surge timer scams.

Normally this wouldn't bother me, but when people claim dark souls 2 can be played any way because it's more on the knowledge and skill of the user, i want to laugh. ADP forces you to level for a better roll, as some enemies have weird/lingering hitboxes.
if ADP wasn't in ds2, the game would've been infinitely better because SL wouldn't be so high, builds could be complete/competitive at sl 50-60 andFrom could've fixed the Giants' jumping hitbox, seriously that shit lingers

>>201671594

No, that's not the problem. Getting +20 and +12% to damage won't change the fact that it's plain shit. When a spell that is supposed to hurt deals less than 100 damage on a non resistant target sometehing is completely wrong. I am pretty sure that even with 30 int/faith spells like these should hurt at least a little bit more

>>201675172
It's not 20% and 12% additive iirc. Some people tested it and the two rings rather stack multiplicatively. The damage is dependant on the catalysts spellbuff. If you're using like homing crystal soul mass with like witch tree branch then yeah you'll do piss damage

>>201674597
Co-oping is fun and without you hosts we would get no summons.
>>
>>201674816
Because the game literally does not allow them to play any other way.

You're spawning into a world where you know nothing of the situation, or even what level you're going to be navigating. You don't know which enemies are dead, which scripted events have happened or even where the host is, all you know is the general direction of the invader, and how much health the host has. And in the absolute worst case scenario, the host is already getting his ass kicked by the invader and you have literally zero time to sprint over to even offer token resistance to the invader and give the host a chance to survive. And once you fail, you've blown your one chance for the hour to get a Proof and then go back to the back of the queue to wait for another summon.

I've tried playing a blue in various different ways: Obscuring Ring and hunting down the invader from the shadows, pulling out healing Miracles to keep the host (and any other blueberries) alive, grabbing a bow and just safely clearing out the host's path to the boss fog. The most efficient way is to just get out the biggest possible weapon you can carry and just charge towards the invader to try to kill him as quickly as possible. Using stealth doesn't work because the mobs will give you away, escorting the host to the boss fog doesn't work because most hosts are fucking retards who want to kill the invader while he has a numerical advantage, and in general not bum-rushing the invader and getting in his face constantly just gives him an opportunity to BC out to spite you.

You could go up 5 SL; your downward range is 10% of your SL rounded down, so every tenth level gains an extra level of downward reach. If you're going to be using +8 weps 60 would be fine.

>>
>>201677559
Just like any Souls game, the absolute best weapon to PvE with is the one you feel the most comfortable with.
DLC mobs kind of have fucktons of magic res, but I've gone through them fine on a lightning faith guy and a pure casting hexer. Was a bit rough but manageable. That being said, I knew the DLCs and knew how to handle the encounters.
Piercing damage is really good, blunt damage is pretty good too but the Hammer class weapons are kind of shit.
Just use whatever you like. You get respecs and a fuckton of levels.
>>
>>201677435

cool cool. What are good melee weapon options? It's pretty hard to find a good path since SL55 seems to be an awkward spot where dark/deep are interchangeably better for best options. I'm open to respecing for certain options, I have a dark corvian scythe I haven't tried yet, I've been spamming demons scar tonight since I finally beat the fucking demon prince.
>>

Crystal chime softcaps at 30/30, I haven't the slightest clue what you do with izalith. You probably want something more like 40/20 with that. It's also built for dark sorcery.

Backstabs are instant and the hitbox is huge
Avoiding them is about knowing spacing and movement options, not reactions or anything.
Avoiding poisestabs is basically not throwing out attacks that will take too long to recover when your opponent is close enough that they could run through it and get to your back before you can roll away, accounting for lag. If you have a fast spammable weapon like a curved sword you can try to hit them again before they can backstab which will either stagger them or cancel the backstab damage.
If you're interested, watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpZeX-RCat8 to see what they're probably trying to do and learn how things are actually happening

>>201678001
I was using the dark weapon build with 30 int/fth, I never used any spells. Since I wanted to try out some without changing the build I was confused how I was dealing such a low damage since I had no idea that some spells work that bad with different catalysts.
Maybe I was too used to DS1 where it didn't matter that much.

Estoc is one of the best PVE weapons and it's elder god tier in PVP, and a buffed Rapier can dish out ludicrous amounts of damage.
But again, use what you like. Don't use those because they're good if your heart tells you to use a Winged Spear or whatever.
If I may recommend some weapons I like : Varangian Sword, Mastodon Greatsword, Spear, Falchion, Bandit Axe, Dragonrider Twinblades, Pursuer's UGS, and Bandit Greataxe even if it's dogshit

>dark/deep are interchangeably better for best options
Are you sure? It should pretty much always beat it with your stats. I've got a 14/30 hodrick build with +6 chaos/dark weps and it always beats fire/deep and lightning as well. It's worth noting that chaos/dark actually scale up faster when you level one stat and then the other rather than both. That said, crystal/lightning will beat dark if you really only level one (especially if you go past dark's 30/30 softcaps), and your pyroflames spellbuff will go to shit if you've got one stat under ~20.

>>201678229

you poor, poor thing

Sorc/miracle buffs and heals scale only with one of your stats, even on split scaling catalysts. Dark weapon also doesn't gain a buff from using dark catalysts, unlike dark attack spells.

I think the weapon in the screenshot is the King's UGS.
The game is really long and levels are very cheap until SL200. The cost from SL199 to SL200 is like 50k or so. You also have more stats to bump up (namely ADP, and it's far from worthless to pump int & co to have a bit of elemental defenses)

wtf you doing homie
>>
>>201687648
They’re good for keeping pressure on the host in case they just play the waiting game. All crossbows have different functions but generally you want the heavy crossbow or the repeating crossbow to meme them.
>>
>>201687638
99% of the backstab complaints are from shit players that don't understand how they work mechanically. If you don't like it, you have other shit games in the series to play.

when both players know the mechanics, backstabs average out to only happen about once per fight
>>
>>201687320
but then you can get DWGR-tier iframes anyway

it's dumb when games make iframe dodging an optional enhancement because it always ends up with the iframe dodge being stupidly overpowered
>>
>>201687538
What seems to be the problem?
>>
>>201687772
Thanks for the explanation. Why are then Arbalest and Avelyn the best ones on the ranking list?
>>
>>201687657
Just because a game has flaws does not mean it isn’t good. It was a memorable experience and has the best pvp and weapon variety outside of 1. >>201687828
But at least it’s still optional as opposed to 3 where rolling feels gay because it’s op from the start.

>>201687884
The ranking is for 1v1 duels, not invasions. The Longsword and LKS are amazing for duels but relatively shit for 1v3s.
>>
>>201687648
How much damage it can do is important, but so are weight and fashion. Generally you'll use one in your off-hand in invasions, not in duels, so the weight matters in that you have to account for carrying it on your person all the time and be ready to use it at a moment's notice.

The one that provides the best blend of all three factors is the Heavy Crossbow: it deals good damage, is not overly heavy and isn't a huge clunky piece of shit like the Arbalest. The Avelyn is also a favorite since you can fire three bolts at once, though this is more for harassing than for meaningful damage (plus if you use it recklessly with Exploding Bolts, you can easily run out).
>>
>>201687782
I really hope you’re joking. The backstab is known to be a failure of the net code, just because it can be replicated doesn’t make it okay. The pvp revolves around retards turtling you in full poise, even if you know the mechanic and don’t get backstabbed it’s a lame fight overall.
>>
>>201687905
some of the mechanics are so outrageously bad that I just can't stand playing it

as someone who likes to plan out and optimize builds, soul memory alone makes it borderline unplayable for me
>>
>>201687961
You wot mate, straight swords are still king in invasions, you can abuse the shit out of ultra wielders so long as you don't attempt to engage all three of them at once. A good invader carries at least one fast one-handed weapon and one poise weapon at all times, and the straight sword is still the best class of one-handed fast weapons in the game.
>>
>>201687907
I dropped 2 after I finished it and I don’t “hate” backstabs, I hate how boring it made pvp since people only fished for backstabs instead of fighting like madmen like they do in 3.
>>201688054
That’s valid and fair, I had to force myself to get past certain areas that are unarguably not fun and make the shitty mechanics shine even worse.

nigga what, 3 is probably the most passive game in the series

>>201687961
it really depends, for invasions; oftentimes you need 4 things to win most invasions
>poise weapon I.E. Astora UGS
>small weapon I.E. LKS
>critical weapon I.E. C.Dagger
>free ring slot for Obscuring/Cat/SunPrincess/etc
Bonus points for a ranged weapon, consumables and a shield/parry tool.
but the most important thing with invasions is adapting to what you see
They're camping bonfire? Obscuring + Greatbow/Bow/Crossbow
3 people hugging your ass? turn and turn with a ss/cs/whatever
need to make a trade vs 2-3 people to kill a phantom or two in a stunlock? Poise weapon
can't hit the host? small weapon
host is a parry king? critical weapon
>>
>>201688002
>The backstab is known to be a failure of the net code
the latency of your position and the actual position of your hitbox gives DaS1 and DeS significantly more depth than other titles

all types of backstabs except reactive ones can easily be punished and everything falls back on predicting your opponent's actions

Not at low levels, in the swamp it’s always 4-5 people rushing each other with SS and GS until someone gets lucky and kills someone. I do know it gets passive after sl90 especially after ihrythill.

I mean, the games do have different netcode, but they all require you to adapt to latency. Souls games are never going to have netcode on the level of GGPO or something. It just doesn't work with the PvE element.

>>201688818
They're all shit in their own ways, but 2 was the worst.
I have never seen people talking about "phantom range" here until DaS2.

>>201689564
False, it’s a matter of opinion. You can make a pretty solid case for 3 being the worst

Doesn't that just make ganking worse? What's the benefit?

Why not? It's fun.

>>201689248
>depth is inherently good
More depth is generally better than less, yes. If rolls and all parts of the weapon's movesets were removed except for R1, it would make the game objectively worse.

>by making all players invisible 100% of the time
That isn't adding depth. It's making it impossible to do other mechanics.

This.

How is it impossible? Just forget about lock on and read their movement. That's depth.

No it's not, see above. Games should try to have depth, but not at absolutely any cost.

I remember a Japanese fight club channel I followed had to stop allowing foreign players in DaS2 since the netcode just couldn't handle it. I seriously wonder how they managed to fuck that up. DaS3 isn't a lot better, either.

Yes, because they're easy to counter and punish. You can't, however, counter what you fail to predict.

she's also weak to dark damage if that helps

>>201689942
>dancer
>hard
No seriously, get good.
>>
DaS1 was obviously not perfect with regards to netcode and phantom range
But it was consistent, most of the time.
If there was latency, you could learn it and adjust, and for the most part you didn't get stuff like >>201689850 where people just slide around or freeze in place and suddenly you take a billion damage. Yeah it did happen, but the connection had to be a lot worse before it got unplayable.
>>
Twin princes, PC, pass is dsg
>>
>>201689942
What’s wrong, u don’t rike it?
Seriously it may be your soul level making the later bosses easier, though she is exceptionally hard. She’s basically a skill check boss to see if you’ve learned how to roll attacks and not just spam them like with vordt.
>>
>>201689841
There is absolutely no depth added by making players invisible. That doesn't meet the qualifier of depth and makes it virtually impossible to do other mechanics which in turn removes depth from the game.

>but not at absolutely any cost
Good thing Dark Souls 1 and Demon's Souls have a really good balance of it.

How old is this clip? I haven't seen hardcore T-posing since release, they made some kind of netcode patch for it. Not that I'm denying the sentiment.

Webm related was today, but the T posing cut out after about a minute. Was still laggy as fuck.
>>
>>201689942
The dancer is only tough if you fight her early, even then if you've got passed Farron or Cathedral of the Deep she isn't that tough.
Hug her side during phase one, then allow a bit of distance during phase 2.
Phase 2 is only as scary as you make it. Her animations LOOK threatening but can be rolled through fairly easily once you've learnt them. The actually challenging bit is being patient enough to learn them, as a few of them appear to end juuuust before she adds a final last smack in.

>Don’t pretend this boss isn’t hard on the first time.
It isn't. I killed her the first time I fought her with my SL60 pyromancer, and she's only been easier every subsequent run. Compared to Friede, Prince and Gael she's a complete pushover. There's a reason she's in the starting area.
>>
>>201690462
Yeah, that's an old webm. T-posing nowadays usually only happens as a player joins the world (either you or someone else).
>>
>>201690494
Yeah that grab isn’t hard, or the slam, or the dark repulse or the fire circle. You’re forgetting that the first time fighting Dancer, you could be super underleveled to where any attack kills you especially since you don’t know them and they don’t telegraph
