  1. This is the actual correct answer.
  2. Yeah this is exactly how I've approached it too! Good to know I'll need to prep myself a bit if I ever make it to the next new adventure.
  3. I doubt I'll make it that far to be honest, I'm only really going through NG+ for some character questlines and to get to Melania again. What level did you start NG++ at though out of interest? Got a friend who said he finished NG+ on 290, which seems extremely high to me.
  4. Still finding the balance in NG+ a touch off. Not just the damage dealt/received but also just some of the boss weapons/weapon arts. Waterfowl Dance is ridiculously OP - video example - none of the NPC / Invader style characters have much response to it if they don't break through my poise right before it, and if it connects it just wrecks them. Though I suppose that is quite realistic! Still enjoying it by and large though. Even if it's not quite the same without the sense of mystery and discovery of a first playthrough. I even managed to solo Radahn without knowing any of the dodge timings or really what I was doing at all. Revenge is sweet!
  5. Don't need support if you never stop playing it *taps head*
  6. Started an NG+ run recently and I'm just kind of leisurely breezing through everything and it's all just really easy. Is this how it's supposed to be? Really feels like it could do with some major balance tweaks. Kind of undermines the exhausting struggles of my first run.
  7. As someone new to NOW TV this season I've learnt that they sometimes name the programmes incorrectly as well. This week the full unedited qualifying was called "Qualifying Highlights" and a couple of weeks ago qualifying was called "Practice 3".
  8. Nice work @Minion ! Enjoyed that. Do you feel any more positively about the boss now?
  9. @Alan Stockre your question about the Varre questline:
  10. This is such a familiar feeling! (Forest fan) Still fair play to Bournemouth, they were miles better than us second half. We've got a fantastic record in the playoffs so I'm sure that will be fine.
  11. This isn't strictly aimed at you, so apologies, but just on this point. I'm playing through a second time and have come to the conclusion that the ER boss battles are tough, very tough at times! But only if you're under-levelled and/or hamper yourself. The difference between fighting Godrick, for example, at level ~25 and level ~40 is absolutely massive. Obviously the levelling becomes gradually less useful throughout the game, but I really genuinely don't think (sorry if this sounds gatekeep-y) that anything up until the late-game is really very hard *if* you're a high enough level, have a good enough weapon, and you use the summons and everything the game gives you. There's huge scope in ER for getting as powerful as you want. If anyone still wants to explore the game but got stuck because of this type of thing at an early stage, and doesn't mind a few hints and light pointers in the right direction, things can definitely be made much easier for you! Just ask in the threads .
  12. Re Melania. Apologies if you've already seen it, but I popped links to a couple of yt vids in this post: - would highly recommend at least the short 5 min tutorial one. The backwards, backwards, forwards, forwards, left, left dodge for the spirits attack, and the tip that she'll often go for a kick after you attack her in phase 2 were game changers for me. Everything felt like it started slotting into place after that. Good luck! Feels amazing when you get it and I don't regret my ~10 hours of training .
  13. Yeah I had the same experience! A lot of it was my fault for not paying enough attention, but you really need to be extremely attentive and remember lines that someone said hours and hours ago to stand any chance. And often I find the game pulls me out of any kind of story/lore stuff with the combat/dungeons - I find I mostly can't concentrate on both sides of the game at once. And even if you can manage that then characters pop up in areas for mandatory encounters without any sort of clue as far as I'm aware eg: I'd love them to make them a bit more forgiving or drop a few more nudges in right directions. I'm going through them with help of a guide in an NG run now and some of the dialogue and character arcs are very cool.
  14. If it was Elden Ring it changes absolutely everything.
