    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!
    Forest glitch is definitely the quickest way to farm souls early on. Definitely worth the 20000(?) Souls needed to get the crest to open the door to the forest.

    Well, it went fairly well. After a year or so of playing, after 4 hours we managed 3 firekeeper soul upgrades, done both bells, got the essentials from the earlier areas and we're now rocking the black knight halberd just in time for sens. Enjoying it as it's casual stuff with a few beers and occasionally going, "don't we need to go down there" a fair few times

    Not looking forward to totg though! Though shitetown is done and don't need much now except vitality and endurance now so happy days hopefully

    I'm currently having another run through this, rocking a naked, sack headed, double handed zwiehander build and Nito is giving me a really hard time. I literally switched off in frustration, something I haven't done in a long time with any of these games, and certainly never for Nito.

    Obviously my build isn't helping, but it occurred to me that when people talk about bullshit bosses in these games (a matter which will always be subjective) I've never heard him mentioned.

    Yet he has a horde of permanently respawning enemies who inflict bleed damage, he himself inflicts toxic, he has a grab attack that is a one-hit kill, an AOE attack that is a one-hit kill, you lose half your health simply by entering the boss arena, and the trip there is a solid minute of running through complete darkness and then magic spamming enemies!

    @DJBobHoskins

    Have you got any fire attack? Pyro or resin?

    no, just been trying to go through as quick as possible, picking up minimal items. Earlier I accidentally aggro'd the giant blacksmith and couldn't be bothered to go ask forgiveness so I killed him.

    Decided to give nito a break and go to the dukes archives. Died my obligatory death to seath but of course the curse build up continues after you die so am now cursed.

    It's become an accidental challenge run!

    Haha, you might as well go the whole hog now - ditch your weapon and punch your way through

    @quadfather I massively underestimated how valuable armour is. I've done a SL1 run before and reckon being naked is actually harder than not levelling.

    Yahtzee annoys his girlfriend with Dark Souls is a reasonably entertaining thing to watch, by the way. It isbon youtube and twitch.

    Episode 6 and seven have been quite funny. Weird watching someone approaching the game for the first time. Brings back some memories, they just did the wheel skellies and I remember the first time I did that and the atmosphere of the lone skellie in a shaft of light. One of the most atmospherically opressive encounters they achieved.

    @DJBobHoskins I assume you nailed nito by now but Divine Weapon or just staying as close to the entrance as possible makes the adds a non issue

    @Ddanno Yes, indeed. The first of the dead is now very, very dead.

    I'm doing a naked zwei speedrun of sorts (not going for a fast time just not hanging around) so i couldn't be bothered making a divine weapon. No armour or shield means I get stunlocked very easily and even weaker enemies take a big chunk off my health.

    Just have Manus, Kala, Sif, the 4K and Gwyn to go. I think they will all be grand except Manus, I've always found his attacks hard to judge.

    I have decided I want all the Dark Souls series trophies in the same place, so I have ordered a PS3 copy of DS1 so I can platinum it (again).

    Firmly expect to benny hill the catacombs for a Great Scythe to start with.

    Do you use the silver pendant for Manus? I'm fucked without it

    I love posts like this. The game is still so strong. Me and a mate have started a bkh run again but I could easily start yet another character right now just to play it.

    Great scythe you say? Hmm :)

    @quadfather Great Scythe is a weapon that's never been the same since DS1. That step forward R2 was great, though it's kinda back with Friede's Scythe in DS3 the fact that DS3 seems to have a lot faster cooldowns on enemy attacks makes it less hilarious.

    It's definitely the best dirty dex weapon in DS1. (that said I just used a Falchion last time, they can actually get p. good deeps due to fast attacks).

    @GloatingSwine

    I think I have an old character from ages ago just after o and s with a great scythe. Must have been fairly good for me to get there with it. Might lose that character up and see what I did with it. Chaos springs to mind. Not sure

    Hmm. Nearly broke Dark Souls 2.

    Beat Throne Watcher/Defender on NG+ and feathered out before Nashandra, and it broke the world. None of the geometry loaded no matter what I did, travelled, quit and reloaded, and killed myself, all the same.

    Presumably because it was still waiting to do the Nashandra intro cutscene and wasn't loading anything else.

    Fortunately it was loading effects, so I followed the trail of bloodstains and messages back down to the boss arena and it carried on.

    (Just need to get back to Wellager on NG+2 for the last two spells to plat it now).

    I want to play 2 again. Or best souls as it is more commonly known.

    Dark Souls 2 platinum get.

    Now I have all the Dark Souls achievements/trophies. (and Bloodborne). Still going to redo DS1 on PS3 to have them all on one platform.

    Need to finish Demons too, but doing all the weapons and rings is so annoying in that one.

    @GloatingSwine Well done, that really is an achievement. I got the 1000G on Dark Souls on Xbox 360 before I switched over. I lost out on the PS3 Platinum because Priscilla died before I'd got her tail and that was NG++.

    Demons Souls looks a complete ball ache to platinum with all that World Tendency stuff to manage across several playthroughs but good luck.

    (Edit - who'll get Dark souls page 1337 first post :)

    I've got the PBS. Took hours.

    Main sore point is WT/CT events. Especially the Foe Ring/Friend Ring. And I started my current run so long ago I literally cannot remember whether I talked to the Monumental at the start and so I don't know whether I'll get the Friend Ring.

    And if I didn't I'd have to do all the annoying bits again.

    Also DeS' weapon upgrade system where you need a million of every stone at every level can fuck off into space.
