    @MH-RobJenx

    Glad to see you addicted to Dark Souls, just take it easy not to fatigue yourself. As for DS2, don't listen to the naysayers, it may not be as great compared to the original, but it's a great game on its own.

    @wunty :lol:

    EDIT: Dark Souls II has it own thread here, in case you need it - based on your DS performance, you probably won't :lol:

    Couple of DS2 things to mention to avoid future frustration: a lot of the later bosses have attacks tied to estus timing, therefore always take estus directly after a succesful dodge. Always dodge then swig.

    Agility speeds up estus swigs and improves invincibility frames when dodging, you should try to get agility over 100 iirc.

    It is a huge game and quite sprawling, ask if you do not know where to go as it can be very confusing, DS1 is pretty contiguous for the most part, DS2 goes all over the place.

    I am pretty sure at this point I prefer it to DS3, especially the DLCs which are top notch. BB ist he winner though, brilliant game that. Worth getting a ps4 for.

    Also, if you come across a Boss with infinite health, come back later.

    Guys, planning another DS playthrough. PC or PS3 better for more people to (jolly) co-op with?

    @hypoBla5t PC is the way to go nowadays, PS3 is probably dead right now.

    Even fucking twinkers still invade you at undead burg just to fuck your ass, plus we have an awesome community and the Return to Lordran events, check the subreddit out for people if you want sure fire coop.


    Also use DSCM mod, it works like a charm, easy to use and makes coop painless. I should just replay it with a character that is not using a zweihander but it's hard getting rid of old habits

    Damn I didn't know there was a mod. It's pretty quiet on the PC for jolly co-op. You do find people but it's pretty low compared to SOTFS and 3. I would imagine PS3 is completely dead.

    The game was discounted for the Steam Summer Sale so I'm sure there will be lots of new players at the moment.

    @MH-RobJenx The 24 hour peak is 3.000 people, I can say this is awesome for a 5 year old port from a console game on a platform as competitive as PC, there is 2.000 people playing right now.


    And the mod is AWESOME, it pairs you up with people that are at your SL and location, says if they are human/undead/phantom, and makes it even easier to pair with friends since the summoning is kinda broken sometimes, there is also Watchdog for Dark Souls that gives you the option to kick a cheater if they invade you with a click of a button (You can't kick people that are playing straight, just cheaters, also awesome tool).


    Anor londo for example is the same nightmare that you remember from PS3, with tons of invaders, same goes for blighttown.

    I just played through it again recently and I think I was invaded all of twice.

    Will try the patch on my next run, sounds amazing.

    @MH-RobJenx If you want to play again, just hit me up so we can have some jolly cooperation, I have one char in NG+ and another one early on in the game, I always restart and go through the first half of the game just to get tired at some point, but I do love this game so much, hundreds of hours spent on it.

    I have been watching yhatzee annoying his girlfriend with Dark Souls on youtube and this prompted me into coming very close to a reroll. Even opened up the new character screen and then I decided I have quite enough other games to be getting on with. Although how long that will last remains to be seen.

    Not quite the same game, but I just finished watch A German Spy's in depth play through of Demons Souls and promptly rerolled.

    I still have the character that I was farming the BS gear on for a race we tried to have. Should investigate how much I'd collected.

    Was that when we were trying to do a full balder setup - with all the armour pieces?

    Yup.

    IIRC I had everything in multiples except the darn sword.

    Haha, I remember now.

    It's the bastard helm that never drops for me.

    Obviously, the sword I have plenty of.

    Then used it to remove Havel's ring :)

    Two of them...

    I'm half tempted to roll a character today to see if the curse has lifted

    Don't fight it, give in to the temptation.

    This thread reminded me that I have a PC character sitting outside the Kiln of the First Flame, so I took a couple of stabs at Gwyn after a long time; boy, he is a hard f#$r isn't he?

    @JonFE

    I'm going to have to do it. Might leggit to darkroot basin first and see if the bkh drops. Then I can use Andre's bonfire for the balder farming. Not that I've plotted it all out in my head or anything.

    Gwyn - parry his second attack, not his first. Works a charm
