      blighttown is a pain in the ass. pile the framerate on top of the platforming and you have a ****ty area to deal with.

      by the time i was done with it, i ended up with a good strategy to go up and down from both sides, and the past few times i tried i got where i was going without screwing up

      Sen's Fortress... quite possibly the biggest trap of them all. Not bad when you know where to run, when to walk, when to sht bricks. That damn mimic... immune to knock down. There goes my whole playstyle.

      those mimic's are so awesome! i think i died from 75% of them. i never went near a chest afterwards without first throwing a fireball. that wild kick they do, and their funny laugh...

      i got to the final boss tonight, but haven't pulled the trigger and walked into the lair yet. still have some other things i want to try and find and do first.

      that area! the places you go in this game are just incredible

      That's what I was doing every time I saw a chest... r2 attack and dodge backwards.

      Is Atlus (or whoever) still tweaking the servers for lightness/darkness?

      nice!

      I can't get past the Four Kings in the Abyss. I'm taking the short cut from Drake Valley straight back. Sometimes I get caught up on the drakes or knights and use too much of my magic before the big fight. Other times I just flat out fail in the fight. Best so far is nearly 20% health remaining. Almost there...

      i used the firelink shrine fire for that boss

      if you go into the area where those first two ghosts show up in New Londo Ruins, you can jump off to the right of them, which is easier then going past the blue dragons and those awesome bone lords. that should let you keep your flask and magic hopefully

      how ****ing awesome is that fight? the music and visuals are horrifying. the story behind it is pretty awesome too

      i ended up tanking that boss with my havel armor set. that fight is about speed, get in there and **** him up as quickly as possible before the others overwhelm you. still though, definitely one of the toughest fights in the game easily!

      So, Darkroot Forest pvp is lame. Killed 3 invaders that were part of the covenant and got 3k souls each. Seriously? I can get invaded by 2 people, simultaneously, of random levels and they ONLY give me 3k souls? fck that. So I camped where the Hydra mini boss was (on the bridge that leads to the forest) and waited until they either left or died. One tried to use the holy spell push (or something like that...) failed, so I demon greataxed him off the ledge, next guy used the fog ring () and the Dragon Sword..better but still died.

      Kept my Humanity (all 3 of them!) and leveled up. Now I have 46 strength at level 50. Only 12 vitality though. So, if one of you guys invade me... I'm a glass cannon. Prepare to die in 1-2 hits. Stat scaling has also been noticed... my 2h weapons have no increase in damage output whether I 1h them or 2h them. Quite sad because I now have to farm shards to level them up.

      Kind of sad that I'll have to go to NG+ and then get all the way to Anor Londo to get a certain sword.


      Well, at least I can now do 500-700 damage with my 2h Dragon Great Axe.

      I wish people would summon me to their world more often. I spent 2 hours basically farming souls while waiting for someone to summon. Only got into 3 other worlds and only defeated one boss.

      Yeah, I noticed a lack of summoning as well. It goes to show, you really need to give people an incentive to actively be in human form. Demon's Souls gave you full life (instead of 50/75%)...Dark Souls however only gives you the ability to summon other players () and a little more curse resistance ().

      I've summoned about 4-5 people and it went rather well except for one time.




      On another note: I have the full Giant set. I love the look. Working on my endurance now so I can roll around better (currently at 27).

      What I need now though is Twinkling Titanite.. a lot of it.

      so ign posted a infinite souls exploit and then promptly took it down and wrote "Cheating is bad. Go and play cooking mama if you can't handle this game. "

      that soul glitch is so bad

      the entire point of this game is to learn from your mistakes. sometimes your new trial won't work at all. that's experience.

      this game would be so boring if it were easy.

      they didn't patch it yet, and yes it would still work since it's on the original code

      the WORST thing is backstabbing online

      i've been backstabbed from the FRONT. it's so broken.

      Welcome to Demon's Souls!


      As a somewhat veteran pvper/invader rolling is a no-no most of the time unless you have >25% equip load (in which case, will let you roll again immediately). The time it takes for you to gain input control with your character with above 25% equip load, the other guy will already be in position (I've done this on 75% of the players so far who were dumb enough to roll with full armor. )

      Casting is a no-no unless you have the range advantage or have them in a less than ideal stamina situation. Countless players have tried casting fireball/soul arrow/2h Dragon Sword R2/etc... the only spell that is fast enough is combustion but even then, you sit there for almost a second if you miss.


      Most guys that are used to pvp will not use lock on because it is slower when going for backstabs. You'll notice if they do use it because they will run in an arc towards you rather than straight past (then they'll quick turn and backstab).


      So far, I have met 1 good invader and about 14 bad ones.

      I'm sure you knew most of this already but, just sharing my experience so far with pvp..

      This game is slaying my social life. It seems like a lot of the mini bosses don't give enough souls, imo. 1,000 for the lurker demon? ugh Still love the solid fighting, but it sucks getting blindsided or overwhelmed with weak enemies.

      Beat it last night finally. I think I was 75 hours into the game. Got the platinum sorcery/mage trophy. With the crystal catalyst, crystal soul mass and the +sorcery ring, I was one-shotting damn near everything.

      Is there some sort of charm, ring, etc. that gives you more souls per kill? i recall demon souls having an item that boosted souls harvested when it was worn or cast.

      I don't believe so. In Demon's Souls there wasn't really anything that gave you more than 1000 souls. That is non-existent in Dark Souls, as most enemies will give you ~500-1500 in later parts of the game.

      Ring of Avarice is the ring you're thinking about.

      Dang, i was hoping for something to make collecting souls easier. Some of the mini bosses have a wide range of rewards. The wandering demon gives you 1,000 souls while scooting around blasting you with electricity bolts while the bridge dragon gives you 10,000 and just sits on a ledge
      I also wish there was a motivation to be human, i don't really see the need to use my humanity when there is no reason to be human, other than to summon people. But when i'm human i never see a summon sign


      Also, i was defeating the gargoyles to ring the first bell. Killed the first one in a few seconds using my last golden resin, have 1 hit left on the fire breating one and get hit by fire that somehow glitches and takes away all my health. No more resin, goodbye 4,000 souls

      there is a silver snake ring of something, it gives more souls

      new game + gives a lot more souls too.

      too bad the 4 kings have so much health it's borderline retardo

      It is the silver covetous ring. The gold covetous ring boosts item discovery. Both are great to wear while taking out the baby skeletons.
