So hows everyone doing on this game? I picked it up a few weeks before I went on the boat and felt like a total scrub. I died like a million times to the first fat looking troll dood hiding behind some rocks next to the house where you start the game with the old ladies. Managed to kill him eventually but my health bar was sooooo low. Then I made out into the town looking area with the Green herald chick and almost got raped by some zombie pigs. Now I'm just trying to figure out what the fuck to do. I think I started off as a night or a swordsman. You guys have any recommendation on builds or what I should do first?

I was looking at the leaderboards and I hate that all the builds people have look stupid, a bunch weird mismatching gear.

I beat it first on PS3 when it was released. Started a bit on PC but waiting hopefully for a patch with the 60 FPS issues.



As for build, you only need to be below 70% equip load for fast roll. Raising ADP until agility is at 110 is good if you are rolling.

Exhaust the dialogue for every NPC you meet. There is are part that is not that is not intuitive that is related to exhausting an NPC's dialogue. I think everyone that did not spoil the game gets stuck at that part.

Game is harder for the first bit of the game compared to Dark Soul. Then you start to over level some areas because they designed them to be tackled in any order. So the beginning of later new areas you discover can feel unusually easy because technically it's a starting area. Bosses are generally easier overall compared to past Souls games, however there are a few bosses that I would argue are harder than anything in Dark Souls at least (one of them got nerfed unfortunately).

Illusory walls work differently in most cases. You need to press A or X (depending on controller) to find them instead of hitting them with your weapon. Pretty sure From changed this to troll players' old Dark Soul habits by switching one obsessive behavior with another (now click on all the walls instead of hitting them).

There is another Dark Soul habit that From will troll you. You can break wooden chest if you hit them, you know because you are checking for a mimic, destroying the contents. You are allowed one poke before it breaks with most weapons.


Oh there is a part near the end of the game that is total bullshit if you are melee. You will know the part. I mentioned in an earlier post that they nerfed it since I played first week on PS3. Well I am hearing it is still pretty rough even with the nerfs. So keep a bow and some arrows handy. But really, hardest area in all the Souls games pre-nerf. Are you playing offline unpatched PS3 version AC9? If so lord help you soul when you get to this area. crash.gif

Poison arrows are almost a must have investment for melee in this game just due to the less than ideal method of "making the game hard"; which consists of a small side of bullshit with a heavy dose of 'MOAR MONSTERS'! The vast majority of fights in this game consist of spending a few minutes figuring out the strike patterns, waiting till the 2-3-4 swing sets, move in and get off a hit then back out. Repeat till you win, or die being too greedy trying to end the fight before boredom sets in.

The 2h mace dragonshrine fucks are the dictionary definition of bullshit in Dark Souls 2. Lets give generic oversized humanoid with a massive 2h weapon unlimited stamina to chain attacks non stop. Enjoy melee players!
