  1. Currently mooching about in the Capital. Loving the atmosphere. Managed to best a big dragon type monster in a random courtyard and a hard as nails Knight type fella. Still utterly lost and avoiding the sewers after getting battered by some absolutely massive grocks. 

    need to go back to fight the gargoyles too but they’re a pain in the arse when you don’t have projectiles.

    Finished the latest trilogy by Abercrombie. I really love his writing, even when the characters are doing next to little I still love to hear about it. The story itself is a nice conclusion the universe he's created, and I can see him not going back any time soon. Albeit, of course, there are tales left to tell. 


    A great set of nine books, and a couple of hundred hours of listening read by one of the best narrators around.

    Im not hugely familiar with his books. Any chance you could list the 9 as I’m looking for a new series to start after I’ve finished Stalingrad by A Beevor.

    Hah. I'm in the same area I think. After reading messages warning me about a boss and recommending horseback battle. I got up there thinking that I must be safe before getting smashed off the edge and plummeting to my death. :hmm::lol:

    Is said NPC in that area approximately (like, on the other side of the bridge where all those other ladders were?). I found a merchant but no other NPC.

    No it’s just past the camp you encounter just by the spawn point - the one with the head banging bell head guy. 

    when I got there there was a message saying to follow the rainbow stones…

  4. Had a good little wandering last night. Climbed up to a new area nr Altus, got kicked of a cliff by an NPC who is owed a thorough volleying after being a rascal over the years, killed by death rot, cleared out a tunnel system, and then got battered repeatedly by a full grown FSB.

    Happened to me, but after finishing Ranni's questline I was able to do the one you refer to.


    Basically the wizard guy is a different questline, I believe.

    When I'd finished Ranni's quest, he was dead. I was then able to pick up Sellen's quest.


    The next thing you need to do, if you haven't already, is find Blaidd.

    I'll need to check - i've already beaten Radahn so i think that might make a difference?

  6. I think my Ranni quest is bugged out. It took about 15 visits to get her to appear i nthe tower, then i met her wixazard guy who sent me off to seek S***** out. When i found that person they don't offer any quest specific dialogue at all, no matter what i do. Gutted as people seem to say it's a great questline.



    It's also mad that i had managed to miss that location until the quest took me there. I was convinced that region couldn't show me anything new by now. What. A. Game.

    I've started to skim a few "12 things you might have missed in..." type videos, as once I've finished the game I'll be gorging on guides anyway, and I'm nearly there. 


    Wow. There's so much. Some minor examples:

    Specifically at Warmaster's Shack:

    There's a fucking boss/invader who spawns at night, if you rest at the grace. Gave me a Bell Bearing.


    One also appears at night in

    Almost done with second playthrough and only achievements left are two of the endings. Will do the backup save trick to trigger them both and should have seen everything and all the side quests I am aware of and care about to its end. I went back and played some Dark Souls 2 and 3 after 100 hours here. Yuck. Ruined. 


    I mean they're still good games, but they feel so wrong. Pressing A/X for stuff is so so wrong now.  

    Can't believe you're about to complete it twice already. Bloody hell, you must be flying through it. I'm still struggling in Caelid and Altus.


    I can't imagine playing a Souls game without a jump button from now on, especially the jump R2 attack.

    It's him alright.

    If you kill him on first meeting you don't get locked in that room...


    I guess i owe Patches an apology - i've been thinking it was him all along.

  10. Radahn down first try!



    I really enjoyed it. It was nice having the others there to summon. Only thing that annoyed me was a stupid mistake where i was trying to summon Torrent but had forgotten what button i'd mapped it to in my pouch, so i did the entire fight on foot.


    After the fight i headed to the Catacombs on the North of the beach, and got absolutely battered by bow weilding ghosts.


    I still can't get Ranni to turn up in her tower north of Caria manor either. Worried that her entire qustiline has bugged out on me.


  11. After killing the boss in Shady Castle I decided to head back to Caria Manor after noping out of it previously. 


    I stalked through the gate and spotted three hands up ahead. Shot them from a distance with my bow & was pleased to see them go down in 3-4 hits. I assumed I was over levelled. 

    walked forward a bit and two big motherfuccas dropped down next to me. I’d stupidly thought the ones I’d killed where the bigger ones. 

    I absolutely shat meself, fled outside and ended up having to kill them AND deal with the magic rays falling from the sky. Absolute nightmare. 

    decided to leave it there and shall explore properly tomorrow. 


  12. Moving house tomorrow and virgin turned our internet off earlier today. Just tried firing this up on my PS5 but it’s just stuck on the main screen with a ‘please wait’ message & not letting me into the game at all. I’m not even getting to the option to play offline. 

    had anyone managed to play this without a connection to the internet?
