    Just been watching a vid of PtD on youtube and it was saying that if you summon someone it increases the HP of the boss.

    I never realised that - is that something new or has it always been there, and does it affect the boss output damage aswell or only HP?

    Makes me think I will avoid summoning npc's on the fights where they just run around being dumb!

    @Puppaz

    She's really good in that fight.

    Some tips include sticking your highest magic/physical defence armour on. Tanking up to feck. Two handing your sword. Munching some moss for increase stamina. Stick grass crest shield in off hand so whilst on your back it still regenerates stamina. Wail away at each king as it appears with the intention of killing them each before the next one arrives. In Normal Game, they're actually not too tough if you maximise damage output.

    @teamHAM - yeah the health boost for bosses if you summon co-op allies including AI is definitely in the PtD and will I presume be patched in when it releases on consoles. I think its a step too far personally, especially as you can't heal/estus AI allies still.

    @Lotos8ter - yeah, it wouldn't be so bad if you could heal em.

    Personally, I haven't noticed the extra boss hp's. But then, I've only just done blighttown. I'll reserve judgement till after Anor

    Still, Sen's next, so I'll be able to get my first scythe!

    I was pretty sure they've always got health boosts when you summon someone?

    Fair enough then - maybe the hp was always present. With the except of O&S and 4 Kings, I normally do them all solo, so haven't got much of a frame of reference to compare

    @puddleduck Thanks for the advice, for some reason I kept messing up, just managed to beat them and hardly even got hit. Weird, but good :D
    Was waiting around for ages for the 4th one to turn up, hands shaking, eyes bleeding etc.

    @joelstinton They slaughtered me repeatedly yesterday. Went away and came back today with a little help from from my good friend Quelaag's Furysword. :cool: Never put those two down so easily before. :)

    They're weak to fire, and as such it's about as good a weapon as you can use on them ;)

    Good work Puppaz. They're a funny boss, because the game makes you take things slowly and methodically. Obviously against them that just leads to getting swamped and slaughtered.

    Hehehe, Bandit Knife+15 with Sunlight Weapon buff at faith 50. Muhahahahaha, so much damage!!!

    Don't know if anyone has this problem, but for some reason I cant use Sunlight Spear? I have 50 faith, 2 available slots, its equipped, but whenever I have my talisman in hand, my other miracles show as "ready to use" but Sunlight spear is always dulled out and my character does the whole, "o look my talisman doesnt work" animation.

    Any ideas?

    @Architect_z I think you need to be a member of the sunbro's at the time you want to cast it. Maybe that's the reason.

    @Dangerous_Dan - I thought I was, maybe I wasnt, mmm not sure. I'll give it a go tonight and see if thats what was causing it.
    It wont be because i'm using a certain Talisman or anything would it?

    Should not be about what talisman you use.

    @joelstinton

    If you fancy claiming the souls of both of those lads (one now, one in NG+), then you should go for Orenstein's first, as he was a nightmare to fight in powered up form in NG+. It didn't help that he's also way quicker and you invariably end up attacking him first, so Smough has a better chance of living and being the soul you claim.

    Still 3 from Platinum, think i might take the back door into Blighttown this time round!

    Ha. just defeated them (summoned a online player). But took out smough first. nevermind. I took him on first as orenstein armour/weapons are more suited to my character on this playthrough.

    The boss fight was seriously hard solo, i could dispose of one but the other was just too tough.

    So got help , and it was a breeze really (died once as i got too exicted going in for the glory fuck you i did it kill :) .. got invaded on the way there the next time, so had to use 3 hummanity in the end :(

    I have discovered that I am hilariously useless at pvp. This pleases me greatly.

    alright chaps - I need to format my pc in a few days, and I need to backup my DS save. It's the ptd edition and it's via steam. Can I just use the steam Backup/Restore feature?

    @quadfather Pretty sure Steam's backup will ignore your save games completely, you want to take a copy of the NGBI folder - save is at My Documents\NBGI\DarkSouls\\DRAKS0005.sl2 for me.

    Wow... Randomly got a guy who dropped multi-souls and suicides to give me 600k souls. Upgraded my light armour. Now I'm sexy and not so bad at pvp :D

    @Puppaz - That makes me think that maybe the bb glitch hasn't been removed...
