Just beat Dragonrider -> Skeleton Lords -> Covetous Demon -> Mytha; boom, jester's set.
Okay, I'm kinda getting sick of people saying this.
Yes, there are serious balance issues. Yes, some mechanics are different from Dark Souls 1.
If you'll remember, DS1 PVP was just as...
And it's a throwback to this:
It doesn't get any better at lower levels. WotG does 1800 damage at 10 faith. Weapons have way too much base damage and way too little scaling. 20 adp seems to give plenty of i-frames. And you can...
Let's get this started. This is the best Guts I can make, other than the armor.
Beaten four bosses. No deaths, no shield.
Is there any significance to the bells in the Undead Crypt? Is there any way to turn them off, or maybe stop those ghosts from infinitely spawning in?
I got my 30th a few hours ago. It's worth it, man.
Summoned into Doors of Pharros as a grey. God damn it. I spot host, he bows. I wave. He approaches me. I pull out my chime, and throw a sunlight spear at him. 2000 damage. GG.
It would be funny (broken) if you could use the black separation crystal during a rat covenant summoning. Has anyone tried?
Everyone seems to be pretty up in arms about the stunlocking in Dark Souls 2 PVP.
While I agree that it's a step down from Dark Souls 1 in many ways... Well... Does anybody remember the average...
Yeah. Get poise, buff weapon.
That's because nobody is invading as a red. It's simply too hard to get cracked red eye orbs. And if you do manage to invade, you have a good chance of getting ganked by a blue. And you can't use...
Dragon stones now actually give you some defense. Still zero poise, though. It's like wearing light armor; they even have some weight.
Black Dragon Greatsword has a really nice moveset. All wide,...
Poise doesn't seem to do much anyway. I poked a guy in full havel's armor with a rapier R1 and staggered him. That does 10 poise damage. Needless to say, on paper he could have tanked a dozen of...
Final boss spoiler: Really? That's it? Pretty sure I died more times to the Dragonrider.
I'm having a lot of luck at the Dragon Shrine, fighting other dragonbros.
Won't I lose all my bonfires?
I think I'm at the point where I can beat the game. Got the Giant's Kinship. Beat the throne defenders. I'd rather do some PvP and get some dragon scales.
The Old Sinner is probably my favorite boss so far. I don't like how many of the bosses involve multiple enemies. I prefer one tough, fast, hard-hitting enemy. The Dark Souls 1 DLC bosses are all...
Slayer20, did you ever find that crow lady, after rescuing her? If so, where?
Just checked through my inventory again. Drangleic shield op.
Yeah, you're right. I got that confused with the front path, which has a king symbol door.
13th March 2014
Also, I'm 31 hours in, and the best shield I've found is still the Silver Eagle Kite...
Agh. Help. Earlier I found a door that said "Seek more powerful souls." when I approached it, but I seem to have forgotten where it was. Can anybody remind me?
He heavily implies that the whole universe is in a big cycle, a curse of its own: That everything ends and begins anew, over and over. In Dark Souls 1, the flames are fading and we're told that we...
I found a cloranthy ring, and later on, a cloranthy ring +1... They don't stack. Can rings be upgraded!?
Anybody found the zweihander/greatsword?
Kinda spoiler, but mainly just something weird:
The coffin near the end of the Things Betwixt, past the hippos, changes your gender if you lay in it. It seems to change your face, too. If you rest...
Practically, you're wasting 30 levels on dex. It buys you 82 damage. In comparison, sunlight blade gets you 309 damage for 16 levels. It's split damage, but it's a lot for little investment. Those...
I feel sorry for you. I've been sitting at my computer for nearly 15 years straight, and no problems here.
It might be more surprising if you two-handed an invisible large weapon that wasn't a DKGA or obsidian greatsword.
SL125 is the accepted max PvP level.
I've never touched the sniper crossbow until this point, but now I don't want to put it down.
This is after something like ten minutes of practice:
Crystal catalyst + crown of dusk + bellowing dragoncrest ring + red tearstone ring + power within
That is, if you're trying to one-shot bosses on NG+7.
Swap out red tearstone ring for RoFaP and...
Keep a shotel on hand when you use dex builds, and try prediction parrying. People often poke fairly predictably.
Backstab fishing is easy to counter by backing up. Keep moving; just wait for them...
Gankers getting ganked in Gank Central aka Darkroot Garden? Pretty surprising
"Java is slow" might have been true twenty years ago, but today it is on par with C.
Black Ops 2 sold three times as many copies on release day than Dark Souls has, total. Support your favorite developers.
I'm buying Dark Souls 2 on both PS3 and PC, so I don't really mind if they take their time on the PC version. As a matter of fact, and I know this is going to piss people off, but I'd rather have a...
Looks pretty simple to me.
//Returns an approximately uniform pseudorandom float between -1 and 1, based on an integer seed i
private float GetJitterX(int i)
int hash = i * 0x8da6b343;...
I think we all know that the only two stats that matter for armor are poise and swagger.
For instance, the normal...
It would be fine as long as you could only, say, put a cloak over armor. The armor would still be partially visible. And you'd look bulkier regardless, so it'd still be obvious when you're fighting...
It's just to explicitly show that you're using the Pythagorean theorem, as if the comment wasn't enough. The compiler should optimize it out, so it shouldn't have any impact on performance.
So, I invade in Demon's Souls, 4-2. This is my first invasion in a few months.
I spawn in, and find the host fighting shadowlurkers on the upper platform. I run up to him, hit him, and roll when...
Brevity is wit. The less code you write to do the same thing, the better code you've written. It's easier to understand, maintain, modify, and extend. Of course, I'm talking about more than just...
Imagine if two people started using this, then one messaged the other.
