  1. 🕹 High Score Day #53 - https://highscoreday.com
  2. 🕹 High Score Day #52 - https://highscoreday.com Bleh. #4 was the game I was thinking of, never heard of #5.
  3. Got a bit fed up of Melenia tonight - one attempt I got her down to half health again in phase 2 - so I decided to head off to CFA for the first time. Interesting place and the locals gave me a warm welcome. I somehow managed to take out the first big enemy without a scratch and made my way to the Godskin Duo. Interesting fight which I weirdly enjoyed, I went in expecting to fail as I got so battered from the normal knights outside I had already used up half my flasks. Going into an obvious boss fight expecting to fail made it nice and relaxing. Again, barely a scratch. Happy days....but I can't help feel that I need to take out Melenia soon...
  4. Even if it doesn't jump off, by fighting in that corner you get more time to kill the first one before the second gets to you.
  5. Thanks for the tips on the big M. I'll get her eventually. Regarding summoning: - if I use my own summon, does it increase the health of the boss? - if I summon another player, I seem to be locked out of also summoning my own one. Is that right or am I doing it wrong? - can I summon multiple players into the fight? What's the maximum, and does each one increase the health of the boss?

  7. I found Melenia tonight. Was so excited to finally get here after hearing so much. I joked to myself as her intro cutscene played...I wonder how long I'll last. A minute? Two? 30 seconds? Maybe even win first time? 2 seconds. Maybe less. Her initial leap attack took me by surprise and I was dead almost immediately. Huh. Since then, two hours later and many many tries, best I've done is a quarter of health remaining on phase 2. I know it's possible but fuck me it's a brutal fight. I've tried my first summon (first ten summons in fact) and getting very mixed results. Some players do worse than me, others practically solo until I screw up and ruin it for us both. When she rises up ready for that attack I may as well put the pad down. I've avoided it a few times but it's mostly instant death. That, in combination of regenerating health for every hit she lands, makes this one tough encounter.
  8. It's been my main weapon for about 70 hours I've technically got better weapons but I'm so used to Moonveil that I struggle with anything else.
  9. Oh god, the (Arkham) horror. 🕹 High Score Day #50 - https://highscoreday.com Can't believe I didn't get the first one. Last two...eh
  10. Holy smokes Haligtree is tough. There's not one enemy I can't beat but it's just endless difficult encounters that zap the flasks. Slowing grinding my way through, I had particular fun in "oh fuck not those" alley at the bottom. Maybe I should be tackling this area after CFA but I feel I'm in too deep now! Must press on!
  11. 🕹 High Score Day #49 - https://highscoreday.com The shame. #4 was a guess based on art style, 5 also a guess for same reasons and got the wrong game in the series.

  13. About 100 for the top two, I did the bottom two ages ago at a much lower level. I guess I'm heading towards the endgame now. I'm currently at the final optional area (I've picked up a lot of spoilers along the way) having not enjoyed the snow area before hand. The town section with the candles might have been the low-point of the whole game. Utterly bullshit boss fight from earlier in the game gets turned into a standard enemy and lots of them. Managed to get through and I'm caring less and less about finding all of the item. Just get me through! So far the next area I'm making ok progress but they aren't half throwing some tough fights in. I'm keen to keep pushing forward so I can cry more at the boss though. Haven't tried continuing the main path yet, I can see why some people tire towards the end of the game but it's an inevitable pinch point where discovery makes way for a conclusion. I don't even have anything constructive to add to this thread any more, I just want to keep talking about the game.
  14. Bah 🕹 High Score Day #47 - https://highscoreday.com
  15. Framed #63 https://framed.wtf Good guess

  17. I've made some more progress. Castle Sol done, another area I wouldn't rate highly on Trip Advisor but glad I visited. If I've missed any items I won't be returning to get them. Finished a few catacombs I'd struggled with previously. Killing bosses on the first attempt is always good. Got rivers of blood; the people's sword. Don't have enough arcane by ten. Temping to pile in the upgrades but my current weapon is working too. Hmm.. Done lots of quest progress by jumping around the map a lot to talk to everybody. Also some use of guides. No chance I'd have processed some on my own. Got some items to level serious weapons to 10 that it turns out I could have done ages ago. Oh well always nice to have more special stones. Started exploring the snow field, ran around. Found a village, got killed by my most single most hated enemy in any souls game, and decided that'll do for tonight. Progress! I feel like I'm closing in on the end. I have very mixed feelings about this.

  19. 🕹 High Score Day #44 - https://highscoreday.com Maybe should have got 3 but no chance on 5. Thought I knew everything about the format this game appeared in, but never heard of this one.
  20. Oooh. I left. I did wonder if there was something to do with the diving board (or weird 'thing' that he was with) but I was so loaded with runes I was scared to so anything. Do tell! Edit - there are two Mogh's. I know about the secret on the Mogh in the sewers.
  21. Quoting myself...after a pretty miserable session Monday night I had a great time with it on Tuesday. First of all, although completing the area, I won't be leaving a positive review on Trip Adviser for Mohgwyn Palace. That place stinks. - My main weapon is now maxed out! - My main summon is now maxed out! - Completed the Varre's quest, including killing Mogh - he's a tough one certainly, but my winning strategy was to kill him before reaching his second phase, which was easy when using his shackle that I found earlier in the game. Surprised it worked so effectively but it made the boss a piece of cake. - Gained nearly 10 levels, 5 from killing Mogh. I nearly fainted when I saw how many runes he drops! - Continued potmans quest after managing to miss him following a previous fight. He came in fairly help when.... - defeating the fire giant. Took a few goes trying to learn attack patterns and dipping in and out, in the end I just ran to his ankle and repeatedly swung the sword until he died, somehow I barely got a scratch - also found a legendary weapon in the capital, though I admit I read that one on a guide So I'm now nearly level 120, tooled up and ready to tackle a few catacombs I missed from earlier in the game. I'm not continuing in the area I just found myself in. Nope. No way.
  22. Just done Varre's starting quest and got suitably destroyed in all three invasions almost immediately. No matter, onwards! I also found the illusive ghostwart 8 plant in the underground section. Now my Tiche is level 10! (Sentences you never thought you'd say...). I thought I was being careful exploring the world but everyone I take a step back I find another catacomb. Game feels endless.
  23. *googles who Varre is* Oooh I should probably do that. I never used the items he gave me a month and a half ago so he's been waiting around for quite some time.
  24. I might have already grabbed one in Nokstella if I've put another summon to level 8 already. I'll have to revisit that area but seeing how big it is I might just grab a guide. Not been to mogs place yet, no idea where that is! Makes me feel better that those catacombs are considered difficult! I'll never not hate those little gargoyles. Oh one last thing, as somebody who hates flying enemies in games - not just this one, all games - imagine my delight when I discovered
