I downloaded the Beta too but will probably skip it. I want everything to be new to me when I get the game.
Spent a couple days playing Dark Souls nonstop recently. I amassed over a million souls just from being summoned for O and S fights. The fight really is easy when you have 3 players. On one occasion we were invaded and the guy played it so smart. He ran into the room with that fucking titanite demon, after 20 minutes of cat and mouse he killed all 3 of us , he had the crossbow that shot multiple bolts and I ran out of lightning spears so I charged in with my Abyss Greatsword and died.
I also ditched the Sunbros and joined the Moonbros. Wanted to try something new and I liked how they were the ones to be about justice. I farmed the crows for an hour till I could rank up and get the talisman and darkmoon blade because I heard they were the best but I am not impressed and thats probably because my faith is only at 30.
If you feel a sin comin on then Soupbro might just give you a visit : oh and fuck Priscilla, I can never cut her tail.
Darthwraiths are evil though. I'll stick to the Sun and Moonbros, I was also thinking about joining the Gravelords because the eyes seem easy to farm or the Dragon Covenant because I have over 100 dragon scales so I'd be able to rank up.
How so? Is being the Dark Lord actually a good thing at all. Yes reigniting the flames won't really do much because the flames will be extinguished eventually but I think that's better than a Dark Age.
Hoping in Dark Souls 2 they actually try to explain and show players the lore. I love how Smoughs soul is only worth 1 souls when selling it to Frampt along with anything Seath related, I imagine some players never even notice it though.
