It really depends on what weapon you use (not that at SL1 you have too many options). One of my restrictions I put on myself is no lightning weapons so it took a while for me. If you do make a lightning weapon though, I would say it probably isn't much of a problem.

Gaping Dragon will always take quite a while at low levels, mainly because despite being a fucking joke of a boss, it has a lot of health and a seemingly high defence.

Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

Out of curiosity what weapon did you actually use, do you think you can beat the whole game using the broken sword you get at the beginning of the game. I assume you werent invaded alot because noone would be even close to SL 1 in placed like Tomb of Giants or Anor Londo.

I think whenever i decide to finish this playthrough im gonna kindle every single Bonfire so i won't really need the Rite of Kindling if i decide to do NG+. Oh and i defeated Gwyndolin easily last night

For my SL1 run I was using the Battle Axe and for my SL3 run I used the Hand Axe.

There is no way in hell I'm good enough to beat the game using the Broken Sword. I class myself as a half-decent player but I don't have the skill or patience to even attempt something like that. Honestly the SL3 run is probably something I'll never be able to top, and that took me ages.

As far as getting invaded goes, I don't, nor have I ever had Xbox live so I can't comment on any of the online aspects of the game.

Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

You seem more than half decent, beating the game at SL 1 and 3 is a great accomplishment. I class myself as a Dark Souls expert now and i would never be able to accomplish what you did and what others have done, im basically full of it lol. Now that i have no use for souls i might just start doing PvP now and see how i compare to other players, its fun actually fighting real human enemies.

If you can reinforce a broken sword shouldnt you do more damage. Can't you also modify it and make it lightning too.

Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

Yeh it's definitely not impossible. To be honest with you though, there were points in my SL3 run where it just started feeling like a chore to do, and I feel like if I pushed it even further, I just wouldn't enjoy it. The main reason I powered through on that run was purely because I felt that if I didn't, all of the effort I put in would've just been wasted. For me, there needs to be a balance between challenge and enjoyment (which incidentally is what Dark Souls does impeccably), otherwise really, what's the point?

On another note, who's psyched as shit for Dark Souls 2? I know that with Miyazaki not directing it, many people are sceptical, but I for one am trying to employ as much optimism as I can. It looks and sounds promising from what I've seen/read, and also, I'm really looking forward to playing it completely blind (something I did not do with Dark Souls).

I am, what im more psyched about is trying to play the game without help from anyone on here and without watching any walkthroughs.


Decided to fight some invaders, so i placed my summon sign down in Ooacile Township where TONS of PvP happens. Ive helped kill about 3 invaders so far. My lightning spears do a ton of damage imagine if i actually used my Greater Lightning Spears instead.

Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

That's what I'm most excited about aswell. I'd not even heard of Dark Souls before I saw most of the game via a playthrough on youtube, and as much as I love the game, I feel like I robbed myself of a large part of the experience. I won't be making that mistake with Dark Souls 2, and I'm prepared to get fucked over at every corner...and I love that.

Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

Im at Victoria's Diner just had a great meal topped off with a warmed up Bourbon Pecan Pie , I pay for my meal and as soon I start walking out some older guy sitting with 2 women shouts "you"re a Sunbro". On a day where its been pouring rain on and off I decided to wear my Orange Sunbro shirt with my Solaire hoody on top. He said he's a darkwraith but he has helped alot of ppl too. This shit made my day he's the first person in Boston to actually get what im wearing.

I should have done the Praise the Sun pose before leaving the Diner, that would have been awesome. Yeah pointless story

BEST.STORY.EVER!

That's so awesome on a number of levels.



CMA, I agree. It's a shame too. Being who he is and where he is he should be immune to fire attacks...and even if he was you could still just parry him to death.
