If you went there in white world tendency, Executioner Miralda is an NPC so killing her takes you back towards black

 

Oh right, what a bugger. How come the same doesn't happen with Yurt in Latria? Killed him too or is he not classed the same as he isn't intially aggressive to you?

Spoiler

Did you kill him there or back at the nexus? As it won't affect anything if you kill him in the Nexus, or maybe it affects character tendency.

I killed him as soon as I released him. Apparently (from Fextralife)

 

Spoiler

In order to prevent this, kill him immediately upon releasing him from the cage in Fool's Idol Archstone or immediately after finding the two unnamed corpses in the Nexus. He is found on the second floor near the unnamed corpse. Killing him as soon as you release him has no effect on character or world tendencies.

Yeah I did it, mostly because I didn't want to leave anything undone.

 

Spoiler

I just went through a few stages killing the shopkeepers (except Ed because I'm afraid of him) then they appeared in the Nexus upstairs. None of the NPC she asked me to slaughter put up much of a fight.

 

I'd forged the Northern Regalia before finishing the game (used Nexial Binding to return to the Nexus after picking up the sword below) so it was very powerful while I was Pure Black character tendancy, killing loads of NG+ baddies in 1 hit. A few Black Phantoms I killed changed my character to more neutral though by the time I finished it again though.

Has anyone done the Mephistopheles side quest? I must have completed this game 6 or 7 times now, and every time I say that I will do it at the end.

 

But I just cant bring myself to go around slaughtering everyone!


I’m the same, I’m generally not a fan of killing things that are no threat to me.

One thing you can do is get Yurt to do the majority of the work for you. I let him go through most of the NPCs as I was only after the ring you get for killing Yuria.

I too can't stand doing that but I did it at the end of my first playthrough for the ring for the achievement, I have the platinum now so no more murdering unless I want to turn the world black without dying.

I apologise if this has already been asked but for trophies like "King of Rings", do you have to obtain all the rings with the same character, or can you get them across multiple save games?

 

same character dude, and I can't just drop them out of my magical arse like in Dark souls 3 so get collecting!

Yeah you need to trade a gold coin for the Ring of Uneven Scales. Wasn't in the original game apparently.

 

There's also the new Ring of Longevity which you get as a bonus with the Digital Deluxe edition but otherwise need to trade a Pure Bladestone with the crow.

Yeah, that one was easy. Trying to get a gold coin by farming those Fat Officials is fucking PAINFUL.

I’ve played a bunch of the PS3 version for a laugh, and it’s amazing just how much more readable the game is at 60fps with better lighting, even if it really is almost the same.


Definitely! After finishing this I went back to Dark Souls Remastered on Switch and the 30fps felt horrible. Ended up binning it off and buying the PS4 version for the better frame rate. The 60fps makes a huge difference.

Albeit the art style and lighting on the Switch version is fully authentic to the original unlike the Remaster, so cubits like me prefer it. 

 

Edit: *cunts


Yeah, noticed a bit of a difference between the two versions. It’s a shame the Switch version isn’t 60fps. Playing the PS4 version on PS5 and it looks really nice though!

Done. Loved it, a truly stunning achievement. Never played the original so was a real treat to have a brand new Souls as a launch title. 

 

Only disappointments were the relative length as it felt a bit short and as I went to each of the final areas it just became a bit of a boss rush and they all seemed to whizz by at such a speed and then it was over. 

 

Also a bit miffed that it goes straight in to NG+. I had so much fun with PvP and summoning in DS3 after finishing and before going in to a new game. Can't do any of that now without going through the whole game again and seems I need to do a particular thing right at the very end of the game to get the red stone. Suffice to say I didn't do that thing and now I can't do any PvP at all ☹️ . NG+ seems pretty brutal too. Lost 200k souls that I'd carried over to a fucking archer. 

 

It was still fucking great though and will definitely have another run through as a strength or dex character.

 

Any DLC been hinted at for this?
