Sen's, sitting on a ledge. He'll want you to crank the boulder thing so the boulder gets shot into the spot where it won't harm anyone. Then he's found in Anor Londo after that, roof top and you go down the spiral stairs on the far side and kill some silver knights for him. Then he's back at Firelink.

He was indeed next to the boulder ramp. I wanted to kill him for the ring, but the dumbass jumped out of the ledge and killed himself. The ring is lost because apparently in DSR you can't quit/reload to make those items spawn.

Strange. Maybe there's exceptions to it, I'm unsure. I guess the lesson here is to avoid having NPC's fall off ledges unless it's Lautrec.

Better fucking win real quick then. A better set up I see for glass cannon action would be Crown of Dusk, Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring, RTSR. Crown + Bellowing alone makes Crystal Soul Spear hit for like 1300 and Dark Bead shotgun people for 1500+ (This is 50 Int and using the Tin Crystal Catalyst.)

Lemme give you a tip for DaS2, NEVER stop leveling. So on that note, go to the highest Int cap you see fit.

>never stop leveling
Why? I'm playing on PS4 and yeah it's pretty much a single player game but what is the reasoning behind this?
>>
>>217895565
soes lvl come in to play on matchm aking or is it joust soul memory if it was just memory yeah dont stop lvling it was such a stupid system
>>
>>217895718
You're matched through soul memory only.
>>
>>217895718
>>217895769
The game's matchmaking is based entirely on soul memory. Because of that you would only ever hinder yourself if you chose to stop leveling at any point. You'll still get matched up with the same people who chose to keep leveling. Also after a certain point, the soul memory threshold for matchmaking gets insanely huge so it becomes irrelevant anyways. It's just how the game was made. They wanted people to go through the game nonstop with this one, not go through once or twice tops and just stay there.
>>
>>217861434
>>217861237
HAHAHAHAHAHA
Jesus christ, what are you scrubs even doing here?
Parrying is hard? Learn the attack pattern of the enemies. That's also probably why they help you with not making you start things from the beginning when you die, from the likes of it the parrying system seems pretty much the same.
In Bloodborne it was definitely worth it to parry, as it was in Dark Souls 1.
Good riddance.
>>217860292
If the quality of the threads is good I don't mind them dying faster than the cancerous /dsg// threads. If you can't play Bloodborne today even if you already played it back in the day then you're not a loss for the threads, you're exactly the kind of person that I don't want to deal with. It's better to live a short meaningful life than a long void one.
>>
>>217895279
What do you even think is so good about 1? Aside from the obviously shit online, even the PvE in 1 is mostly just mediocre and unpolished. Every area has at least one enemy that looks like a modder put it in there because it's awkardly placed and has awkward animations. Even in the supposed best area Anor Londo, flying demons jumping to their deaths all the time, the game making you balance across thin ground while enemies fall to their deaths around you and obviously the archer shit, seriously what the fuck is this design?
The most praised boss fight O&S can be cheesed by a 10 year old. Seriously I don't see it, help me here.
>>
>>217895906
>They wanted people to go through the game nonstop with this one, not go through once or twice tops and just stay there.
The principle was actually good, too bad matchmaking via soulmemory and the shitty game and gameplay were the wrong approach to achieve that.
I only went throught the game once or twice, then I went back to DaS.

I'm around 60% through DS1 remaster after having only played BB and 3.
So far the only hard bosses were Ornstein and Smough, and the Four Kings, but there were some cool bosses elsewhere and the designs are generally good. This game's strength definitely lies in its areas - only one I hated so far was demon ruins (what little of it I saw before getting bored and going to new londo instead).

Where's the DLC and how long is it compared to 3/BB's?

Go down to Dark Root Basin and kill the Hydra. Save/Quit and reload the game. Run to the back of the water where you fought the hydra and kill the golden crystal golem. Talk to Dusk. Now after you place the Lordvessel, go to Duke's Archives. Kill the first blue crystal golem you see and get the "broken pendant". Now go back to where you killed that golden crystal golem at the back of the hydra area and now you'll see a black portal. Welcome to the DLC. Fairly lengthy and every boss fight in it is really fun. Total of 4 bosses.

>>217896167
>The most praised boss fight O&S can be cheesed by a 10 year old.
Okay, let me get this one out of the way first, you're retarded. This appeal to difficult is the biggest sign of a bandwagoner. These games are not exceptionally difficult at all through regular gameplay. That applies to every single thing in every single entry. Now,

>What do you even think is so good about 1?
Unparalleled world and level design, the single most well crafted 3D world to date. Everything about it is pure replay bliss. The way you can bend progression to your will is something you can't find in any other game or its sequels. It was also the last From ARPG to not get demolished by incompetent playtesters, with enticing difficulty spikes and bold traps all still in place. Bosses were a mixed bag, but the good ones kicked it out of the park, not to mention that was before From overdosed on anime swordsman and crazy moves were still special and the exception, not the rule, therefore retaining their value and working as a pace changer. Enemies served their purpose within level design very well. Gameplay pacing was perfect, not too fast like DeS, not button mashing friendly like the two action games for the disabled, and not underwater based like Tanimura's abortion. The AL rafters are brilliant and I feel bad for you not being able to see it.
>>
>>217897245
That seems needlessly complex. I killed the hydra early on and came back later when I was doing sif's area via that MGS3 tier ladder, killed the golem and freed the girl. Haven't been to Duke's Archives yet - is that the area next to Anor Londo?
>>
>>217897281
Yes, absolutely too low. Go to soul level 50 or something and cap out your weapons. Shit by the time people are in AL they typically have a weapon memory of at least 10. If they looted the Lightning Spear from the mimic in Sens they are automatically at WM10 instantly thus making them able to match up with people with maxed out weapons. You're holding back by far too much.
>>
>>217897413
you can access it after beating the boss in anor londo, you're very close.
>>
>>217897376
>The way you can bend progression to your will is something you can't find in any other game
That's not true
>>
>>217897413
Yeah but that's just the way it is man. Also yes, that is the area next to Anor Londo, you're correct. You'll see that blue crystal golem very early on in the level so you won't have to go far. But once you kill it and get the broken pendant just head back to where you fought that gold dude and you're good.
>>
>>217897458
>>217897347
Thanks!
What is the most populated SL by the way?
Non stop action wise? I had a good run at Sen's and everywhere early game, but what is considered the post pontiff of this game? at what SL?
>>
>>217897489
I've already killed O and S and placed the lordvessel. Done forest and new londo too

>>217897552
DLC is endgame difficulty like the other games'?
>>
>>217897558
50-60 is considered anor londo range imo, anything post lordvessel should be 60 or higher. 125 is the duelfag meta, some people go a little higher and invade down.
>>
>>217897376

O&S is easy even without cheesing so I was not really refering to the difficulty. It's just not that good of a fight and their AI is pants on head retarded.
And unfortunately being able to approach the game from multiple directions does not make the areas themselves any better.
>The AL rafters are brilliant
Oh my god
>>
>>217897624
the dukes archive is that area that was locked by a yellow fog wall in anor londo. It should be open now that you placed the vessel.
>>
>>217897206
I'm not the guy you originally responded to and I will not respond to your stupid question. Dark Souls is a magnificent game that speaks for itself, it doesn't certainly need my lobbying.
Do the world a favour and kill yourself.
>>
>>217897558
>Most populated SL
Everything from like sl10-70 is extremely active because people love doing multiplayer, be it invasions and co-op during the NG territory. Once in NG+, sl100-120 sees immense action. To be more specific, 15-20 for parish, 30-40 for sens, 45-50 for AL, 55-75 for post lordvessel. 60-80 for DLC

>>217897624
DLC is end game tier, yes.
>>
>>217897650
I want to be able to invade like what post pontiff is like, not too high or not too low and stay at that range since I don't want to want to go meta.
>>
>>217897794
If you're going to be a darkmoon you can invade many tiers below you, so going for sl100 should be a good decisions.
If you're going to invade as a dark spirit i would say something in between 70~90.
>>
>>217897750
>>217897650
What you mean by post lordvessel? Archives and DLC?
Is 50 a good SL to stay at then for non-stop action everywhere in Anor Londo and above and not be TOO weak?
>>
>>217897794
Well if you're looking for anor londo area invasions, in the original game 125 could darkmoon sl 50 players. Seems like the ranges have changed though.
>>
>>217897689
I agree on the AL rafters but O&S is a great fight. It's not easy, although it's not impossibly difficult or anything either. Their AI is as good as it needs to be. Sometimes they get stuck in patterns when it would be better to be more varied, but overall they have great movesets for a mid-game showcase boss fight.
>>
>>217897736
yeah, just haven't got round to it. Too many choices of where to go next
>>
>>217897794
Sounds like mid game territory. sl45-55 then. I personally have no problem being on the lower end because it guarantees you'll get instant access to a lot of things. Invading doesn't stretch downward very far at all, it's more so an upward matchmaking so I keep that in mind too. "Pontiff" level I would consider when people defeat Ornstein and Smough.

>>217897905
Post-lordvessel = Everything after Ornstein and Smough when players place the lordvessel down and then have access to the second half of the game.
>>
>>217897749
Still not a single argument, just keep this shit to yourself if you have nothing to say thx
>>
>>217897905
>What you mean by post lordvessel?
Invading people who've killed O&S. You'll have nonstop AL invasions even as SL 60, but probably not by the archers, just inside.
>>
Finally getting around to play Dark Souls 3, haven't touched it prior but I've played the rest of the series, mostly.
Not sure about whether to go Dex/Int or Dex/Faith though. Any recommendations for a dooal wehld fag?
>>
>>217898023
Thanks, I'll aim for 45-50 then. 44-48SL for a just right autistic number.
>>
>>217897905
Yeah sl50 would be perfect if you're trying to connect with AL and everything after and not be too weak or anything.
>>
>>217898079
Sellsword twinblades eviscerate the game if that's what you're getting at. Buffs do more damage on attacks with multiple hits as well.
>>
>>217898032
No, you keep your shit to yourself and lurk 10 years before shitting on Dark Souls like a newfag.

see >>217898032
thx
>>
>>217898096
>just right
If you want something just right end on a multiple of 10. You invade down a tenth of your SL, rounded down. If you want the most downward range per-SL, you land on a 10.
>>
>>217897995
since you already defeated the 4 kings, only areas left are the tomb of the giants, lost izalith, and the dukes archive. There's no specific order and they're all pretty much about the same difficulty.
>>217898079
Most people tend to go int/dex since lightning infusions and buffs are mid/end game.
Pick up any weapon you like and depending on whether you want to buff it constantly or just infuse it you should level your stats accordingly
note that you can do both :sharp infused twinblades+ Crystal magic weapon
Ouchie
>>
>>217898079
>Dex
You already have access to the weapon that obliterates the PvE. The Sellsword Twinblades. It's a dual wielding weapon and shits out damage. Combine it with bleed resin and you'll find yourself taking big fat greasy shits on everything. Bleed is stupid OP in DaS3 because almost everything can be bled out.
>>
>>217898079
str/fai has better weapon variety than both of them
>>
>>217898217
You don't need wolf with havel and hsw. The most poise you could want is 77, and all you need for blackflame is 61, which can be acheived by adding iron bracelets to your build. Even without them, being ober 53 poise is still considered "high poise."
>>
>>217898096
Go to sl50, what >>217898253 said is right. 50 will have nonstop action in AL and all of the areas after it. Max your weapon out too. Weapon memory stops being relevant by the time players reach AL.
>>
>>217898295
>only areas left are the tomb of the giants, lost izalith, and the dukes archive.

Plus the Painted World, Ash Lake, and DLC (unfortunately I'm so late to the party this can't be a completely blind playthrough and I know these places exist).
That's 6 choices which is ridiculous compared to how linear 3 and BB were. I love how much more open this game is. Think I'll go to izalith first and get the shitty area out of the way

If there was ever an attack that could make my dick so erect it it sent it to space, this was it. Looks bad ass, uses less durability than a lot of other special attacks, and shits out damage in a big ass aoe. With Power Within active, if I directly hit another player it does 1300+ damage to them. If just the shockwave hits them it does like 600-700. Shit's insane and I love it.

There are none. Also if you've drained the water, Firelink is the fastest route. Head down like you always do and in that area where you see the very first ghost, head straight but don't go up the stairs, veer right instead of going to the stairs and jump downward. You'll skip just about all of the area and be right there at the end.

iirc sanctus negates PW under 300 max hp, so you could use the crown ring like in pic related to make it idiot proof while still powerful
you could also go up to 11 vig for 594 HP, get cursed, and then run both rings+sanctus+PW, but then you can only do forest/darkmoon stuff

I've tried using the Sanctus combined with Power Within and it didn't really slow down the HP drain at all. Your HP still drains a lot faster than the Sanctus restores it.

Oh no, I wasn't. What affect/difference is made or happens once you're under 300 HP? Does the Sanctus start healing more? Does Power Within start taking less?
>>
>>217899590
Power within drains a percent of your HP, and Sanctus heals a set amount. So if you go low enough the sanctus will outheal it.

Interesting. So do I need to cast PW while under 300 HP from the get go? Assuming that's it, can you cast it under 300 and then heal up? (This is if I don't feel like using RTSR)
>>
>>217899590
>Does Power Within start taking less?
It kills you in 100 seconds regardless of your hp, which means it needs to slow down the damage rate in proportion to your health. Lingering also slows it down. Sanc is fairly common since the faith req matches twop anyways.

You only need the str to wield it for it's healing effect to heal you. You don't have to get the faith if you don't want.

>>217899765
Its based off of your total hp. Equipping mask of the mother may or may not change the damage per tick but chugging or starting from low hp won't change anything.

Nope. Best world map namely for all the basin and drakes connections, most agression in pvp (which is not to say it's aggresive, but speaking comperatively it's a lot harder to run from a fight in 1 than the others). The build variety is shit but most builds get a boatload of weapon classes to hardswap between since so many things have matching weight/str reqs, so I don't care about that too much.

Should I just go restart DS3? I never played the DLC and haven't played in a long while. I see that it has more players than DSR on steam, so I assume PvP/coop is still active. Any recommendations on builds? I only have about 300 hours in DaS3, but my primary focus is pvp and coop.

DS1 has the most consequences for actions, so I'll always prefer it as a whole experience.
Not being able to walk and sip, not being able to hit the panic button while sprinting past enemies (until they gave the option to have that in dsr), not being able to roll in any direction I feel. All of these make me more engaged in the PvE than any of the later souls games.
Hands down the fucking worse MP though, and I like ds2 & ds3 for proper fighting and stupid skirmishes respectively.

>>217901160

Why did there stop being a dedicated "be a dick" covenant after DS1? I guess Rosaria's Fingers is kind of the same, but you just get to respec from that, Darkwraiths get a tool to be an even bigger dick who steals all your humanity.
>>
>>217901427
Magic isn't garbage, it's a bad meme. Hell it's easy mode for pve. if you already did str/fth maybe go int/str, int/dex or int/fth with base requirements for the weapons you want to use and infuse them. Infusions got a buff a long time ago and the split damage meme is outdated. DLCS are amazing and the bosses are definitely worth.
>>
>>217901568
Crucifix of the mad king hits like a truck with the dark blade buff, splitleaf with DMB or lightning blade, exile with any buff. Basically just pick up any big str weapon that does ouchie when you hit and slap a buff on it, don't forget to bring a back up straight sword/dagger/rapier.

>>217901593
Dedicated red covenant have been smoothed out over the years. It went from "I kill for me" to "I kill for sport" to "I kill for my waifu" which is why rgtow is the best covenant. Besides, as long as you're red you get the bragging rights, so why do it for some slut?

Just say you point down no matter what. On that note I feel the point down is just expected. It doesn't have any "sting" or "bite" to it anymore, at least not with me personally. Every other player points down after a kill because they're trying too hard to piss the other player off thinking it gets them upset or puts them in their place. It's the "fedora wearing" of gestures to me. It's more of an insult to yourself than it is to receive it. I just think "Of course he points down, why wouldn't he?" whenever it happens now. And I know I can't be the only one who feels that way by now. So change up your arsenal and do something else. *points down at your post*

Both got a buff, they're very decent weapons for int builds, i would definitely recommend . them. SL120 is dead so either go above or below a bit for more activity. Pure casters are a meme, always have a melee weapon on you and some spells.

Second is the build I’m rocking now, but if I switched over to the Chaos Blade I could cut down to 120. Thematically the Chaos Blade works too. Not sure if I want to restart though. I enjoy the combos and poise damage of the greatsword too.

Well, yes. If you have 50/50 on a catalyst that scales in both Strength and Dexterity, while also having bare minimum reqs for the spells on a poorly scaling catalyst at 16 Int, you get the best physical damage for the worst magic damage, coming to the point where you deal more physical damage with your spells than magic damage.

So I was in Sense Fortress and I got invaded and almost right after the invasion message popped up I was getting backstabbed by a red phantom, I didn't see him run up and he didn't bow or anything, just backstabbed me off the ledge and then started casting spells at me from above

I couldn't dodge his spells because there is muck at the bottom that makes you slow and I had to use all of my heals just to survive and when the phantom saw that I was out of heals because I accidentally tried to use another heal when I was out, he saw that I had none because of the animation and then he disconnected and was gone

how did he attack so fast and why would anyone think that was fun to do when it doesn't even do anything

Maybe it's a stupid question, but a normal Pyromancy Flame+15 and an Ascended Pyro Flame+5 both count as the same WL (max), right?

Correct

You know, I'd believe that they're incompetent enough to have Ascended count as any other that only goes up to +5. I wonder if you could drop one in someone else's world.
>>
>>217903369
+9 in Sen's, isn't that a little low? Everyone can buy titanite shards at André, and it only costs 1 Twinkling or 2 Large tit shards to get a +7 weapon; won't most people be walking around with that in Sen's? Then going +11 or +13 yourself would make more sense.
>>
>>217905478
I am confident enough in the annoyingness of a man poking you with the longest weapon in the game from behind the strongest greatshield in the game that I'd want to catch everyone.
>>
>>217905478
Safest thing for sens is a +10 or WM10 since EVERYONE will have at least a +5 at bare minimum.

>>217905630
Well in that case a +11 would be better since it matches with +5 as well. But really, realistically, who isn't in Sen's with a +7 weapon, even counting all the shitters? How realistic is it for people to have found 1 Twinkling or 2 Large Tit Shards?

I've been thinking about it for a bit, and I think SL35 +13 is optimal for Sen's, SL30 +11 for Blighttown and SL25 +8 for Depths (to catch the people with ~+3/+4 weapons who went straight down after Kapra Demon instead of going back to André to level up to +5).

I'd go +11 for the Forest and Catacombs at low SL too. Starting from Sen's rooftop (after the Lightning Spear), everything is +15.

That's kind of a tough area to pin down since people can go for Sif at just about any point of the game. You'll see action there at sl30 but you'll see action there at ANY level pretty much with ANY weapon memory. It's too broad of an area to pin down specifically like that.

Yes, correct. It's when a host summons extra phantoms and their sole intent is to sit and camp for invaders, sometimes circling spawn locations only to have the invader instantly melt and lose. Common locations you'll see this in is the Forest, Anor Londo, and Oolacile Township.

I don't mind if the host is prepared for an invasion with 2 friends if he is trying to progress through the area. I'll gladly 1v3 people who aren't hugging a bonfire. That is the intended use of summoning, helping the host get through the game with the added risk of getting invaded.
On the other hand, you have the 3 twinks sitting at a bonfire just waiting to be invaded, then tryhard and play passive as fuck to get whatever hit they can so they can point down at a guy trying to have fun. This is NOT playing as intended.

There are some gank squads you can encounter where yes, it's entirely possible to still win. It's the moments where they spawn camp you and are swinging before you can literally move and stunlock you into submission. Poise stacking and parrying one won't stop the others from still swinging. WoG maybe can toss em' off you but these specific gank encounters are rarely ever countered.

These "gank" covenants are supported by lore and tied to specific small areas of the game. And usually these "gankers" are often greeted by an actual gank camping this area (Forest, Pontiff, Woods).

>>217913467
bloodborne has 2 powerful anti gank weapons. First off you can spawn where you want, and then there's AOE attacks of the parasite's L2 or the bloodletter's L2.

If you're not TWOP'd yet, you can fast roll away and fire tempest them, they're generally running for you, extremely vulnerable to this. At Anor Londo you can one shot the host with fully upgraded flame.
if they don't catch you and break your poise first, generally happens with 50 poise as there are 3 greatswords swinging at you

>>217912785
So, be a hornetstabbing Great Club WoGspammer? You want every invader to be like this, because of gankers? Are you sure you want that? Are you sure you want every invader ready to take on four people, fighting newbies and single players? What the fuck is wrong with you, if you think so? That's like putting a pit bull versus a corgi. No one would go human if that's what they'd fight all the time. It'd then follow that invaders would only get gankers.

>>217913652
I ganked the shit out of solo hosts in the bell covenant, tell me how that's not playing as intended.

Gank squads don't need a lore reason, there are murderous red phantoms on the loose. Of course people will set traps for them and farm their humanity.

Spawning and being boxed in really is shit and needs to be fixed, but cheating to punish gankers is no different than using CE or pulling the plug on an invader.

>>217913891
For PvP, to hit someone with Sunlight Spear it's literally dependent on you trading hits while you use it with unfaltering prayer. At point blank range, sunlight spear will do extra damage and can one shot people but it's all about trading with the other person. Bait them into coming at you and go for it. After a cast or two, if they've caught on, switch to Sunlight Stake, it catches them trying to roll by you or attempting to roll behind you and shakes them up.

The only joy I ever got gank spanking them, ever since 2012, is never seeing the same group I've been fighting for the past three damn hours again. And that was not something I earned, they would have stopped, with or without me killing them. It doesn't matter if I did or didn't or ran around in their world for all those three hours. It never felt good. I feel nothing but hate for them, and I only ever got more frustrated when they sent me mail, because it was always "want to gank with me?" or something. Over time, I feel like the only thing Gankers have done for me, they haven't even made me better at the game, they've just made me emphasise with Ippuki.

Depends on the game for me: It feels great in DS3, where it takes some real retardation to lose as part of a gank. DS1 feels a bit hollow when the gankers are dumb enough to try to face-tank WoG.

What makes this webm a joke is the position they've gotten themselves in. Invader can comfortably retreat to the staircase or push on for a 1 on 1 engagement on stairs leading to the main area.

It's nothing like spawning in the main doors with 4 people approaching you in an X formation, with 1-2 people swinging at you and the rest waiting for your rolls/sprint to catch and bs you, which is how actual ganksquads operate.
>>
>>217917015

Gravelord essentially "infect" your world with Black Phantom type enemies of already existing enemy types.

Only way to get it to fuck off, is to find their sign in your world, invade them and ultimately kill them.

Purpose of the Gravelord is killing the invaders for their covenant item.

Can you 'dupe' items in the remaster the same way you could in the original dark souls or no?

something I've never been able to get over is how spawn killing ganks put on the symbol of avarice and show bad manners after killing me. They farm invaders for souls, almost never die if they make their builds right. I feel so used most of the time, it's not fun at all, I'm pretty sick of this game. Gankers get all of the fun, while I sit through two loading screens, being shown how much I am wasting my time.

If PvP:
Done plenty of times already, but still hilarious when pulled off.

Items:
- Untrue White Ring (To get the white appearance).
- Obscuring Ring (Fade).
- Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring (Silent walking) // Actually not required.
- Hornet Ring (Big backstabs).

- Any high damage weapon.

Spells:
- Hidden Body
- Spook (Silent walking) // Actually not requiired.

Simply walk around without attracting attention.

------

If PvE:
Avoid Sorceries by all cost. It's simply gimping yourself.

Only roughly 10% of the enemies in the game are somewhat weak to Magic. Most Bosses are actually insanely strong against it, and you'll cry when you find out a fucking RAW weapon does more Damage pr. swing, than several casts of your shitty spell.

Also, it's really easy to fuck up Sorcery vendor in DaS3.

no but really? the composite bow in das3 is really good. the damage isn't spectacular and you're pretty limited in terms of ammunition (6 or 7 types stacks of 99 arrows only) that's pretty annoying to constantly restock but there's a lot of ranged utility and the addition of rolling attacks on bows is very helpful

Just use Lightning Stake and a talisman WA, with sage ring you can spam it point-blank and as long as you've got enough health you'll probably win the trade, if they aren't dead already.

i have a meta level of each flavor of caster, albeit some are hybridized but here's the gist of each one. the rule of thumb is that 40 intelligence or faith is the first soft cap and 60 intelligence or faith is the hard soft cap. pyromancies and "hexes" have a soft cap of 40 intelligence and faith, and a hard soft cap of 45 intelligence and faith. Going 40/40 int/faith is recommended for pyromancers, 45/45 for hexers (not a true school of magic in das3; follows different rules), 60 int for sorcerers and 60 faith for clerics. if you want hybridized builds like str/faith or int/dex you only need 40 strength and faith, or 40 intelligence and dexterity. pyromancers, in my experience, have a more difficult time hybridizing than the other casters. generally speaking however, any combination of 30/40, 40/30, 35/35 will work, since faith and intelligence are weighed equally in terms of spell buff

sorceries are your stereotypical basic magic attacks. few enemies are weak to magic, many enemies are resistant. think blacksky eye and a call beyond

pyromancies are fire magic. most of these attacks are arcing projectiles and can be aimed manually to extreme effect. many are weak to fire. many are resistant. Augur of ebritas is identical to how great combustion is used. cant think of any other tools off of the top of my head that are similar.

miracles are holy magic. half are healing and support-oriented, the other half are lightning-based and are all single target with cleave damage OR purely AoE. many are weak to lightning, few are resistant. think choir bell, and old hunter bone

within the context of das3, me saying "hexes" refers to literally any dark magic or pyromancy. incorporates aspects of all schools of magic. few are weak to dark, few are resistant. think all of the hunter tools in bloodborne, but each one is objectively weaker at the cost of sheer versatility

magic is more about variety than sheer effectiveness in das3 imo. hitting things just works

- +1 more Phantom
- Earlier Dried Finger
- Few bugs fixed, bet it was unintentional

Else? Same shit, no security against hacking at all. Knock yourself out.

Affinity costs 40 FP, two casts of Great Deep Soul at 9 FP each costs 18 FP. 58 FP for 2378 damage is *unbelievably* efficient.

It would take 3 Chaos Bed Vestiges at 35 FP each, for a total of 105 FP in order to kill that same Gertrude's Guardian, and keep in mind, that's Pyromancy, which most people consider to be universal standard for magic in DaS3.

It would take 3 Crystal Soul Spears at 46 FP each, for a total of 138 FP, in order to kill that same Gertrude's Guardian.
Even if we were using a substantially more efficient sorcery, Great Heavy Soul Arrow, 14 FP, we would still need 4 casts (that are nearly twice as long, per cast, individually) to deal 2744 damage (60 int, 238 SpB w/ damage boosts) for only 2 less FP.

It would take 3 Sunlight Spears at 48 FP each, for a total of 144 FP, in order to kill that same Gertrude's Guardian.

don't be silly, anon. even in das3, hexes are the king of PvE.

If they added a bonfire for Vamos, they could have added one for either Rickert or Ingward. If they let you offer multiple covenant offerings at once, they could have improved the interface so that you could manage inventory more easily (or do what DaS3 did and allow you to hide the details section if you want to swap weapons/rings mid-fight). If they added weapon memory and restricted SL matchmaking, they could have fixed the covenants that would stop working properly as a result. They could have ACTUALLY improved the graphics. They could have ACTUALLY fixed bugs.

Instead it just plays like an upscaled version of the original. For forty fucking dollars.

The legend of Artorias says so, but the stories told in-universe are not necessarily what happened: As far as anyone in the setting is concerned, Artorias went to Oolacile to defeat Manus, and Manus was defeated. The fact that the C**sen Undead was present to take part in these events imply that the legend is full of holes, as legends tend to be.

>Tell me why this wouldn't be the perfect poise system
Because you added passive poise. Because you added an extra bar.
Passive poise is a kuso mechanic. Poise isn't about making armour look realistic, the goal of that system is to allow slow weapons to potentially trade through faster attacks if the slow weapon swings first. To encourage the heavy to play aggressively and prevent tactics like just waiting to see a swing and interrupting it with a Dagger poke all day.
DS3's system does a perfectly good job as is.

No, DaS2 is shit but you still have to play it to undestand why it's shit.

Most important thing though, is that you play Demon's Souls. Demon's Souls and Bloodborne are the real masterpieces.

Then make hyperarmor start from frame 1. Right now, you can get staggered out of an attack by a faster weapon.

>>217931489
I’d say yes, as DS2 has some novel concepts and areas. It does have problems though, and those prove to be deal breakers for a nontrivial portion of people who pick the game up. Consider picking it up when you’re done with the rest of them: The order doesn’t matter.

I've mixed feelings about Blue Smelter. On one hand, both him and the run to him are fucking cancer, the enemies with the swords and twin greataxes are the most busted ones in the entire game, but on the other it made me realize Havel's in this is worthless since you take ridiculous damage anyway and put points into ADP instead and forced me to git gud. Did people have a similar experience?

Well, Dark Souls 2 is far from Backstabs Souls. Also way more variety in shit you can do.

I just hate the fucking run and lazy copy+paste Boss encounter.

DS2 backstabs have a two-step confirmation, similar to DS3 but slower, and not instant like DS1.

>Then make hyperarmor start from frame 1
No you idiot, then the heavy weapon guy doesn't have to aggressively swing first. The delay on the start of HA is to ensure you can't reactively armour through things, this forces you to swing early on a guess.
The need to guess when the other guy is going to attack in order to trade allows for the possibility of people baiting and punishing your armoured swings, which is the main counterplay to hyperarmour. It all fits together just fine.

His only redeeming quality (and that only in comparison to other reused bosses) is the switched up timing. Optional boss should have been the iron dragon BIK was supposedly building.
>>217932821
Why would big weapons have to predict when no other weapons have to?
>which is the main counterplay to hyperarmour
the main counterplay to hyperarmor is not getting hit by slowass weapons. The way it is you can very much do what you said hyperarmor is supposed to stop, getting interrupted all day by a dagger. Only the dagger guy doesn't have to predict or even react to anything, his swings cost nothing and recovery is non-existent so he can just spam at the other guy's face all day, and the only thing the other guy can do is roll away.
>>
>>217933162
Never go above SL90+10 as a red. It's lower for grapists and territory defenders, but anybody attempting to PvP in the post-Pontiff area should expect cancer above SL65+6 or so.

>>217933307
AoA and TRC actually get fairly decent activity as a SL120 invader, but you should still stick below SL90 to avoid the cancer.

Buff to infusions post-TRC means elemental infusions aren't shit anymore. And Dark damage is only resisted by leveling Faith, which very few people do.

You just combine that shit with literally any straight sword and you become cancer. Lothric K***ht Straight Sword is simply one of the best weapons in that category.

So a while back, I fried my desktop. I haven't been able to afford to fix it yet, so been on an okayish laptop. It can run games like Overwatch and Dead by Daylight just fine, at low settings, so I figured DSR would be okay. It does fine some times and others, not so much. Any ideas on what I can do to fix it? I've got all the extra settings turned off and have it set at the lowest resolution. Can anyone please help me? I just wanna play populated DaS1.

Except Artorias already lost his mind by the time we got there. Everyone thanks you for killing him. Quite literally nobody says "well done retard now YOU must fight Manus". If they did, you would be correct.

For example when you kill Gwyndolin or Priscilla, it's a sin. And fire keeper is mad at you. There's no such thing implied for Artorias.

The legend that Artorias repelled the Abyss only told half the story.
It seems that he was defeated, and his honor preserved, by some unsung hero, who is the true victor of the Abyss.

Show me your sources for those claims. Nothing speaks of Lorg Gwyn giving any job.

>Why would big weapons have to predict when no other weapons have to?
Every weapon has to predict, because big weapons win if both players attack. That means the smaller weapon user needs to predict whether or not the big weapon user is going to swing or not.
If neither player has any idea what they're doing, isn't trying to predict the other player, and they both just walk up and start attacking each other then the guy in Havels with a Great Hammer wins every time.

This is real simple fighting game neutral and it's the basis of PvP in DS3. If you're the guy who can poise through and win trades then you're looking for something like the start of a run forwards to predict when the other player is going to attack. You swing on prediction, if you're right you win, if you're wrong then the other guy could potentially punish you for it if he predicts your swing, spaces properly to avoid it and times a punish just right.
If you don't fall for the bait then you're safe, but if you never swing on prediction and the other player realises that they may predict they can get away with going on the offensive. If you predict when they'll try to go for a real attack then you get to trade and win. Such is the circle of PvP.
>>
>>217931863
Yeah I love Bloodborne. I platinumed that as well. I'll try to get Demon Souls somehow, even though I don't have a PS3. I'll figure something out.

if they do run then cool you have time for more help to come in, also if there is already help they are 3v1ing them and you get an easy TWOP grab
>>
>>217934953
>That means the smaller weapon user needs to predict whether or not the big weapon user is going to swing or not.
You need to have ridiculous lag to not be able to see the big weapon has been swung.
