Dark Souls 2

Post by Dante on Tue Sep 16, 2014 2:18 pm

I am playing it these days . Has anyone here finished it ? I could use advice , i don't want to check on the internet more than i have because i don't want it spoiled or dummed down for me. I tried Dark Souls ever since it came out but the PC version is really bad , so i ditched it . It's a real pitty , i tried 3 different times to get used to it and i never could , terribly optimised for PC.

Dark Souls 2 is legit though. Incredibly , irritatingly legit and well optimised for PC , if unfriendly in it's use . Whatever , i am in love with this game. I thought i was good with such games untill i played this game. I go in to play for half an hour and i end up starting new characters just for the fun of it. I finish a boss and i am scared to move on , in fear of losing all the souls i got Laughing

I play a knight , i am 85 lvl now , although i really doubt if i am even at 50% through the game. Haven't kill all that many bosses tbh. I am still wearing Elite Knight Armor , how do i get any special armor ? For weapons i have that Heide Knight Sword , made it +7 . I use that mostly , a Dragonslayer Crescent Axe i got recently and a bastard sword which i made +3. The shield i use all the time is the kite shield , one with a bird on it . I spend titanite on it too :facepalm: .I've noticed that titanite shards are quite rare and i've already used a lot , lol . I hope there are more cause i am screwed if there aren't .

The saddest part of all though.. i didn't know that boss souls could be used to make rare weapons. All the first bosses souls i consumed to get .. more souls. I freed Straid and saw i missed on the Pursuer's greatsword Sad

Any advice , tips , whatever , is welcomed . If you could explain builds and how should i procceed in the game in detail , even better . Tell me more about armor , i want a new set . I found the Old Knight set whole with weapons and shield , but it's so freaking heavy i can't move. I play a quick knight , alternating between two handed and sword-shield .

Is there an order on how to procceed with bosses? Or i just go and die wherever i wish hmm

Sorry long post and no spoiler


- Armor are not much different between set, really depends on play style, the best is always mixing everything as long as you stay below 70% but overburden build (Havel armor) is mostly for pro who like to two hand some big freaking sword in new game plus ( you need ring to free roll with heavy set, Royal Soldier Ring +1 and First/Second Dragon Ring). You would be surprised, lots of player make it through the game naked. You probably know by now but you can buy boss armor from blacksmith in Majula, most are average but some has great resist and of course the look.

- The same can be said about weapon, the damage output/ weight ratio is kinda similar across all of the weapons. It's all about move set and your build, Strength or Dexterity, what kinda of move set do you like best or most effective. all weapons are viable if player can master their move set, even starting weapon. The ultra great sword sword for example, have the best move set in the whole game with incredible arc and reach. On the other hand, I know lots of players like light armor and dagger for bonus backstab. Test every single weapon you found for move set then stick with the one you like the most. This is one major flaw in DS series, I took so much time to get the move set down, I hardly switch weapons. Boss weapons is not needed to complete the game but cool factor and trophies/achievement.

- As for shield, always keep two. One for 100% physical mitigation and one with very high magic one ( you can infuse one to get 100% magic). Switching between the two depends on area and bosses.

- You can farm all the material to upgrade but I suggest not too, really break the flow of the game.

I won't spoil you order of play through, the magic, like you said is to play blind Very Happy

Dark Souls 2 is good game but lost the magic that made the 1st one, still better than most of the games out there though.

Good luck and have fun.

Thank you very much Twoism .

Dark Souls 2 is simply a great game, i would suggest it to any serious gamer. I absolutely love the medieval setting , how difficult everything is and how unforgiving your decisions always proves to be , step after step. I am still to fully understand how magic works in the game , though . How to build characters e.t.c . I also killed the NPC-witches in the beginning and i can't change my stats now lol

Dark Souls 3 , or whatever the next is called , i am bying it day 1 .

I thought DS lore, story and music are underrated, everyone talking about how hard it is but I love learning story, npc myth and lore bit by bit through item discription and speculate. The art of story telling and world setting in DS is just amazing, it's dark, gloomy and sometimes downright depressing world.

Agreed with everything , especially about the depressing part. Yesterday i found a giant rat boss in Pharros , good grief i may just stop playing the game right there .

I died at least 10 to 15 times ... Last time i didn't even get to hit the big rat , the little rats smashed me for trying to get my souls back . I quit the game after that in silence , screaming inside . What kind of wicked person imagines a rat the size of a ship , ffs ...  

Turns out i hate rats Proud
