Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

On NG+, about 90 hours total. I'm doing all the stuff I missed last game because once you reach a certain point some stuff is unavailable. Right now I'm in the baby skeleton room before Nito farming white titanite slabs so I can get the Occult Upgrade achievement (last one besides Fire and Magic, will get those slabs later from item pickups, not farming, so no worries). Pretty much done with most of the game except Seath and Bed of Chaos. Excited to beat Bed of Chaos so Quelanna can give me the last Pyromancy spell that I missed for the achievement. Then all I need is to farm Souvenirs from the Painted world and I'll have every achievement except for Rare weapons and Miracles and the final "get all achievements" achievement. Bleh. I doubt I'll ever get the Rare weapons achievement since some of them take a lot of fucking luck and drop off certain enemies that don't respawn (like Mimics).

Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

My brother got me this as a Christmas gift. Bought the strategy guide that looks bossy as Hell even though it doesn't seem to do a terribly good job describing some stuff. The enemy guides are GREAT, but the location guides aren't so much.

I'm about 6 hours in and currently level 13/14 (don't remember exactly). I get the sense I'm progressing really slowly, but I'm okay with that. I mean, I've only beaten the Asylum Demon as far as "main" bosses go and I'm about to go through the wall of light that takes me to the Tauros Demon.

Wouldn't say I'm all that good, but I'm getting stomped way less than I did at this point in Demon's Souls, and as a result I'm enjoying it WAY more. I'm a pyromancer though, so backpedalling and hurling fireballs at cunts has helped immensely, especially against the first Black Knight. Only enemies that caused me real trouble were the skeletons in the graveyard below Firelink Shrine, but I was down there at level 3 or some shit, and I assume that is going to be an uphill struggle even for someone that doesn't suck. I stuck at it and got the hang of killing them, though. Even killed one of the skeleton giants while I was at it. Would've been easier if I had tried to tackle the place once I'd levelled up some, but I wanted to snag some of the loot down there so I stuck at it and got a decent shield (which I've since dropped for a Heater Shield) and a Winged Spear, even though I can't wield the fucker properly yet.

Reading through the thread, y'all seem to be way luckier with item drops. I'm not really getting shit and I've been human most of the way.

When do I start getting halfway decent armour? This hood and tattered rags aren't going to be much use soon enough. And at what level should I attempt to fight Havel? I want the ring he drops so I can wield a battleaxe and still be able to roll as quickly as possible.

Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

The skeletons are very OP unless you have enchanted weapons because they respawn.

As for armor, you should buy some from the merchant in Undead Burg. You'll come to a blacksmith before entering the giant church that has great shit or lets you upgrade.

Havel is easy. Take off all your armor, two hand your strongest weapon that lets you be under 25% armor and dodge and hack away.

Later in the game you'll find an accessory that increases item discovery.

Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

Tried the Tauros Demon and got stomped thoroughly. I tried to do a plunge attack a few times, but I kept fucking missing. Then I tried running to the other end of the bridge to lure him away from the ledge, but he covers the distance far too easily for it to matter. I'm climbing the ladder up the ledge and he just fucks me with that giant club.

Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

You only want to attack when you're 100% sure your attack will land. Otherwise you'll be punished for it. Dodging, blocking and parrying are your best offence.

When it comes to the Taurus, you have the right strategy. You need to climb the ladder and do a jump attack off the top of the tower. If he keeps hitting you off, there are a few cheap ways to kill him, but I dont know if you would want that.

Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

I'll give it another go tomorrow, see where that gets me. I think I was just walking off the ledge when attempting the plunge attack when I should've rolled off to get close enough to him.

If I'm still getting iced I'll bitch out and go the cheap route.

Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

Beat the Taurus Demon. I'm not sure why I was having as much trouble with it, because it really wasn't that hard. And not even in a "for THIS game" sort of way, either. Before, I spent most of the time trying to lure it to and away from the ledge so I could plunge attack it, but it just kept closing the distance by jumping and ragdolling me with that fucking club. This time, after the first time I attacked it from the ledge I just stayed relatively close and chucked fireballs at it whenever it swung at me. He has a fairly long wind up, so it's easy to spot an attack coming, and his recovery time allows you to throw a fireball or come in for a few strikes with time to spare. I don't think I even had to block anything.

Had a go at fighting Havel. I was doing pretty well until he connected with one big hammer smash and completely totalled me then and there. I thought I had my shield up, but he must've just broken through my guard and that was that. I'll try it again later, because patience, dodging and continually chipping away seems like it'll do the trick.

Also tried getting across the bridge with the big red dragon at the opposite side, but I've failed miserably at that a couple times now.

Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

He might have overpowered your shield because you had low stamina. Having your shield up doesn't let stamina regenerate so don't constantly hold down block. Also, you should be using a shield that blocks 100% physical or close to it.

As for the dragon, don't go alll the way across the bridge. When you encounter the enemies on it, take the staircase to the right. You'll also find a shortcut back to the bonfire you have been using before Taurus and Havel.

Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

Yeah, I figured that was what happened with the shield. Probably never let my stamina regenerate enough after a roll or whatever.
