    but being an ass is fun, don't be human if you don't want to get invaded...
    Except, if you're running a character build like a Sorcerer or something that needs help for certain areas, I'm going to be human so I can get help.

    I just don't get the logic. Dark Souls is already a had game, so people go human to get help. Why would you punish someone for not being able to get through an area on their own? It's just adding insult to injury, and it's why the vast majority of Dark Souls players have reputations as jerks, regardless of whether they invade or not.

    A mule is pretty much vital for making PvP builds quickly. I probably wouldn't be playing DS at all without mine.

    Basically it's just a template character you can BB off of. It has 99 souls of every type, 99 of each possible upgrade piece (shard, chunk, slab, scale, twinkling, etc), and whatever equipment you BB'd onto it.

    so you can BB a character and then use the souls to level up hilariously fast (99 great hero gives you something like 2mil souls), then use the slabs to upgrade your equipment to whatever. it's easier if you have a lot of weapons and armor on it already. plus rings and arrows and stuff.

    basically i can create full, ready builds in pvp for burg in under 15 minutes. that's why the burg is so popular now.
    Holy shit, how does one acquire a mule?

    Just ordered this off Amazon and I'm pumped as fuck right now.

    I had about 3 hours with the game at a friend's house and it was way too much fun to pass up. It should get here just in time for finals to be over, so it's more of a reward to myself.

    I'm hoping the additional content that's on the PC version will come to consoles as free DLC or something. It's not that far-fetched, seeing as how the PC Version is a lot like a console port, it shouldn't be that hard to re-port the new content to consoles.

    I want to meet Hawkeye Gough and fight Artorias and stuff, not just hear about it.

    I think they're just not saying anything about it being DLC because it would steal the thunder from the PC debut.

    I'm expecting they'll start talking about it after it's released.

    Yeah, probably. They want the PC players to have their moment before they start giving attention to consoles again.

    Also, I'm hoping the next Souls game, the one that From Software announced they were working on, will be a direct sequel to Dark Souls. It's such a rich setting with such good characters, I'd hate to see them just ignore it.

    Made a faith dex build for using Ornstein's spear and sunbro lightning spear miricle, ended up catching up to my highest level in about 2 days. Started to pvp in the forest and got my ass handed to me by people in havel's in phantom and human form once I broke the covenant.

    It doesn't take long to release the floodgate, and with a greatsword weapon any ghost should die in one hit.
    Once you've opened it, it's a pisstake to run through

    New Londo is probably the easiest area and the easiest boss out of the Four Lord Souls you need.

    I'd say the difficulty goes Tomb Of The Giants/Nito, The Duke's Archives/Seath, Lost Izalith/The Bed of Chaos, and then the easiest being New Londo/The Four Kings.

    Although, if you're going as far as how you're supposed to, regarding quest lines, you should go Four Kings, Bed Of Chaos, Seath, and then Nito. That's the way the personal quests are supposed to go (Big Hat, Griggs, Siegmeyer, Sieglinde) and that's the way I usually do it.

    also Leo ring doesn't affect greatshield bashes or kicks iirc. Or crit damage. Replace Leo with rofap, wolf with dwgr for troll or hornet for more troll.

    Welp, got through the majority of lost ilzalith and had to kill solaire, and of course somebody leaves a message that says " tears " by where he was, that and the bed of chaos is a horrible boss battle.

    I actually killed it shortly after posting here haha. Found a "safe spot", then just wait for the sweep, run and roll down on the big branch, roll into the center, stab the heart. 60k souls just like that!
