Was in some random cave their and ended up

Spoiler

Getting to the boss room and when I'm in the room I can't see anyone. Start getting attacked and I realise he's invisible. I'm sure there's some way to reveal him but I didn't have any items for that. However summoned my spectral dogo pals and they sorted him out and let me hit him as they kept him busy. Good boys. Try and stay invisible to them, you Black Knife Assassin fucker

I’m beginning to think strength isn’t that good in this game. Dex seems to be the superior melee stat. Strength weapons don’t scale that well and they’re largely too slow, especially for some of the mid game enemies. 


Yes I think I agree. I started with a strength build and most of the weapons I found were rubbish.

 

I found a Claymore and ended up upping my Dex to a quality build. It tears through most things, breaks poise easily, and is great vs groups.

Trying to send my summoning sign to the pool outside Maigret so I can co-op him with the missus and it just won't send. It just keeps coming up with the sending notification. It worked fine with a mini boss but there just must be too many people trying to do him. Surely they're gonna have to nerf him at some point if people are struggling that much.

Why don't you just set a password and use bog standard signs instead of the martyr/pool?

Another thing that's weird.  Anyone else got that skill Bloody Slash?  You get it near mistwood..  It seems insanely strong, I've put it on my main greatsword and it uses fuck all FP and is killing things like the knights in Stormveil in 2 shots.

I believe it only affects the attack stats, if you want to main hand or use two shields to bash things with.

All I could find is...

 

Upgrading shields increases their Guard Boost every other level (+3, +5, etc.), reducing stamina needed to block.

To confirm, I hadn't managed to get it to +3 like I thought!  I just did, and i looks like the next upgrade (+4) will increase the guard boost.  Yay! 

 

What's max level in this? +15?  I guess that means about +5 to guard boost for most shields then.

On the contrary I'm finding STR very strong and glorious. 

 

I'm enjoying it, but it's definitely not without risks. I can really eat into lifebars and do damage but the (lack of) speed means that each swing is a gamble.

 

Mind you, using it on enemies that stagger - and rendering them pretty much helpless - never gets boring. :D

Also - anyone had any luck with the blue ring / hunter coop thing? I've had it on for ages and haven't been summoned to save anyone once :(

That armour is glorious! Looks like the Brass Set from DS1.

 

Please tell me where to get it (in spoilers or message me).

Totally agree, STR is absolutely bossing my playthrough especially now that I've got two insane talismans and a great rune that combine to buff various attributes and equip load. 

 

This thread is moving too fast for me to keep pace but I'm loving the discovery aspect - especially sat in parties with forum folk and sharing knowledge.

I cannot find this final torch in Siofra River to save my life.

 

All the ones I’ve found so far have been obvious. Anyone remember a particularly out of the way one? 
 

It’s fast becoming a bogey area for me…

No, did that bit this afternoon and none require platforming or anything. One very near start point, one heading towards the right hand side, two up in the top of the area (the wee portal helps with these) and the last is in the area where the lightening balls are).

Are there not 8?! I seem to have lit 7 so far:

It drains a bit of your HP as well.
