  1. Still plugging along. Finally defeated those annoying Gargoyles. Ran into a room with two Crucible Knights and noped out (but now can't remember where that was). Rykard is proving a bit of a handfull so left him for now (have the sword but have a hard time figuring out what you are supposed to do, where his crit spot is and how to get there when he's surrounded by lava). Deeproot Depths is a nice area, took a while but think i explored most of it. Killed a Golden Man. Finished the tricky Catacombs in Leyndell and proceeded to have a look in the sewers. Met dung boy but got fed up with his foul mouthing so decided to just take him out, don't even care if that makes me miss out on storyline related loot. So yeah, still completely lost and loving every second of it. Am i right in assuming the CFA bit through the Belfry is just a taster of the area? Couldn't find any way to progress from that bit.
  2. I guess you could say im a souls ‘vet’ and ER has often been an overwhelming experience. Got 80hrs on a third build (not finished w any of them) and my mind is often distracted by possible new, future builds everytime i find a new awesome weapon or spell. (i like the pvp’s) Sometimes i wonder what this would be like to play as a young fella with limited gaming experience or no prior souls/ from game under his belt… must be absolutely magical… or utterly frustrating lol.
  3. Think I cleared that area last night. Really enjoyed it. I backstabbed the clean rot Knight and ran away. Repeat for glory..... Boss was a close one but managed with a sliver of health. Lvl 70 faith build. Anybody know if the Halo scythe is a drop from these Knights or is there another way of attaining it? Question regarding the area: West of the shaded castle there's a bit with an aggressive npc and a Giant and at the end of the cliff a lot of messages telling me to jump down. It looked like i could but i wasn't in the mood for fancy platforming. Should i try it? Loving the Winged Scythe on this build btw, the L2 is a life saver in so many situations.
  4. Cars: Maybe it's Shotokou Battle/ TXR. It's the one i pine for when playing modern racers. Often dismissed as a simple arcade racer for JDM fans, i found that modifying your car with any of the many mods available would always have a slight or distinct affect on the handling and not just shave 0.02 off your time (hello GT). Nothing like power sliding a modded Viper GTS with 180 mph onto the Wangan Boats: Rapid Racer on psx Everything else: WipEout
  5. Had a good session yesterday and went for the Capitol. The sense of scale seems to have changed again and after running and dodging past some enemies i come to a yet another crossroad showing yet another never-ending set of stairs leading up into the heavens (ps4 draw distance?). It just became a bit too much and i instinctively went to the menu and was ready to select quit game. No enemies close by, just wanted to quit because all the different options and routes available became overwhelming. Decided to read a message close by. It said: "Don't give up". I smiled, applauded it but still quit the game a few moments later because i was spent. Amazing stuff.
  6. I'm playing online so was mostly ignoring these until a second play through until i noticed one from a familiar NPC which ended up giving me a nice item for helping his fight with another NPC. First time i visited Alexander's uncle in Cealid i thought he was a mute surrounded by bloodstains, found out yesterday he actually offers a neat little side quest (challenge) with a great reward.
  7. Cheers, been bugging me for a while now and wasted a lot of time trying to find my way 'in'. Not the best map reader here tho, constantly setting a course on the map and then spur Torrent in the exact opposite direction of where i want to go
  8. How do i... get the area west of the Albinaurac Village? It's the only part where i can't make sense of the map which doesn't seem to show the huge cliffside i'm riding along trying to explore.
  9. Finally finished Renalla and pottered around a bit but kinda lost where i'm supposed to be going? The guy from roundtable said to go to the foot of the erdtree, but from what i gather here i need to go back to Cealid for the general? Opened up Volcano Manor, Caria Manor, Mt Gelmir, Bellum (?) highway, Ansel river and got the medals for the dectus lift.
  10. Anyone else with vertigo really enjoying the sensation of your pulse wanting to burst your veins while exploring the rooftops of some of these places? It's brilliant. Would really like to see From's attempt at a Thief game.
  11. Have a lot of thoughts on all that but it'll have to wait until i finish my first run. I'm not that fond of the boss fights in the later From games and so far really loved some in this. The Tabia Mariner, half-life assassin, Gladiator bro, Margit and the big Moose creature have all been very nice surprises that, thankfully, don't force you to follow the 1-hit, roll, roll, roll template and actually allow for some combo's. Sir Lautrec... eh, Kenneth, had me laughing and giggling more then any Fromsoft NPC prior. I think the voice acting for him, Rodericka and some others is better then it ever was before.
  12. To add to this bit of excellent advice: adding a high crit dagger to your repertoire and punishing those staggered bosses with it helps them go down a good bit quicker. I'm not a dagger person but the Misericorde is joining me on boss fights as of late.
  13. Found the necklace, gave it to the lady. Lvl 48, now in Volcano Manor. Progress, finally! Traditionally prefer running the big Axe/Hammer build in a souls game but for some reason i decided to start with a dex mage in this. 70 hours later i'm still upgrading the dex and int stats but been mostly using the claymore and spikey mace for at least 50 hrs now. Upgraded the Bloody Fang but find it swings too slow in most situations and doesn't create enough stagger to compensate for that. Only using Glintstone arc to get rid of grunt mobs and not really using my magic anywhere else. From what i understand this build will shine in the latter half of the game though so i'll persevere. Not complaining, all part of a new souls game and figuring out where the stuff complementing your build is located. Just have to occasionally remind myself that this being a huge open world, it takes a good while longer then in previous games. So far i think this is my favourite From game of the last decade, when i'm alone i call it Dark Souls 2.0
  14. Can you give me a hint regarding the thiefs location (north, south of the telescope)? I spent ages going round in circles in the area but only encountered a boss fight (which looked to be an unrelated night time event i stumbled into).
  15. It's not affecting my current build either but i would have really liked to at least experience some of it. I think some of the slightly unbalanced stuff can make the game more fun, helps people overcome certain hurdles in an unexpected way, make grown men giggle. Moonlight shield magic attack in Dark Souls was so much fun, unfortunately nobody on patch 1.03 or beyond ever got to witness it's awesome effects. Some nerfs might make the game more balanced but a lot less fun. Cool super weapons wrought of the hands of demigods should do silly damage and not be comparable to your upgraded longsword....imo. Level 46, roaming around the Lakes, found Ainsel river, nope. Found another gruesome underground location and had to nope out as well. Caria Manor is kicking my butt, beat a hotdog in the academy but feel a bit under-levelled for the rest of it.
