    Gwyn is hands down the hardest boss in all 3 games for me. It took me about 50 attempts on my first run, he's so fucking fast. O & S was pretty tough too but he took the piss

    I bested him in my 4 or 5 try, using a str char with the Dark Knight Sword, he hits hard, does not let you heal but he has some easy attacks to dodge, I did not use parry in the fight either.

    Loved anyways, such a great boss

    Fucking hell. I was nice and comfy watching some twin peaks and i was thinking, "if there's no new posts on the dark souls thread I won't bother".

    Argh

    I reached level 31 farming for the BSS. 😂

    If you're on the PC I'll not level past my current 32 and I'll stop at the bottom of Blighttown so we can co-op cosplay.

    Just going to grab the rust ring before I finish off the depths.

    I ended up not rolling last night as I'd left it too late. Still tempted though :)

    I've nearly finished my second playthrough of Dark Souls 3, which means I've played the entire series twice since I was in this thread harping on about how it didn't click with me.

    Already thinking of my next run through one of them after ringed city is finished.

    I've never done a proper sorcery run. I did faith in DS2 but it was shite, there's not enough offensive magic to make it fun.

    I've not done a NG+ on any of them either so I could try that. It just doesn't seem worth it?

    @MH-RobJenx

    Not bad considering you don't like them :)

    Which game are you thinking of doing the sorcery run?

    NG+ is more of the same, and you'll blitz through a lot of it, however, later on it gets harder and it also gives you options like fully maxing out different types of weapons, or going crazy with your stats.

    Personally, I love a Dex/Chaos hybrid, but it's a bit niche.

    I was probably going to do it in 2 or 3. I'm a bit of a graphics whore and they both run so much better on my PC.

    I might do NG+ then just to see what the fuss is about. Does it fuck up your co-op and PVP being really high level?

    @MH-RobJenx

    Fair do's. I don't really know 2 and 3 as much as I do 1, so I'll let someone else comment on that.

    If you *want* to pvp, a lot of people aim for the SL120 mark. Or at least, they used to. For co-op, I believe it's still the +/-10% rule with DS2, but I think you can co-op with any level on 3.

    someone will be along to correct me in a minute

    The co-op mechanism does get better the further down the line of souls games you play.

    Pain in the arse on demon's though

    @MH-RobJenx Heyy I remember you!

    I thought at the time: "A shame that he did not liked the game, well it's not for everyone..."

    Then he says he completed the game and i thought what the heck, this guy is insane, how did he finished a game that he doesn't like? And now you are here saying that :lol:

    Ha I know. I think when you get over the initial jump of "wtf am I supposed to be doing" it's great. They just do a shit job of explaining for noobs but after that it's great. Been a well worthwhile expedition to lodran, drangleic and lothric.

    Being lazy and cocky I decided that I'd spend my Gapy souls with the pyromancer by looping through Blighttown and back to firelink via the Valley of the Drakes... Risking my 25k souls from Gapy and amassing another 25k along the way.

    I sometimes get lazy and cocky with the lightning dragons in Valley of the Drakes...

    i dislike the valley of the drakes and always will - my first attempt had me attempting cross the bridge for 2/3 hours thinking it was how you progressed :(

    It's the first fucking twat as you run past the large dragon. You can sprint and jump past his inevitable lightning attack, but 50% of the time I just get hit

    They're annoying fuckers. That little section is odd really. You don't actually need to go through it at any point to progress, so to fill a really small area with divebombing dragons with loads of HP is a bit of a fuck you.

    No dragons for me, just over the bridge and up past Londor Ruins to firelink.

    Grabbed Pharis Bow so now just some farming large titanite to upgrade stuff. Only problem is that even mid rolling feels shit after DS3.

    Try a hex build. Some good, powerful hex spells in DS2.

    Me and a mate are going to try a quick run through dark souls. Not a speedrun, but basically no fucking about.

    Thinking to neck some humanity from firelink to increase drop rate and then go master key / valley of drakes / silver knight to get halberd as later on that'll cut swathes through stuff.

    I'm trying to think of a path and an order to go through it.

    Do I need the large ember to upgrade twinkling weapons? Coz if not can skip depths

    @quadfather no the large ember isn't required for unique weapons (twinkling)

    There's a great chart somewhere that looks official with all the detail

    I'd love to play Dark Souls again without knowing anything about it. I need one of them mind wipe things off of Men In Black

    I forgot all about DS1, I think it was because of too much DS2.

    That's actually nice, in case I ever want to play it again.

    Cheers guys. I think we're going to have to get the large ember as will need something half decent till the halberd is ready (32 str, 18 dex iirc).

    Good point about the chart - the idea is that whenever one of us is fetching beers etc, the other person takes over so we need a fairly solid plan of where to go.

    Farming for souls will slow it down, but gotta get those stats up so tough really. Could abuse the forest glitch at the start then later on whizz round and parry the silver knights in anor.

    Ah, twinkling locations too including the lizards - need to get that.

    Notepad!
