I really cant not get over the shitty level design in DS2, every time I try to get into the game again the design just reminds me why I never bother

Yeah 2 is an absolute slog to play through, but the PvP is totally worth it IMO.

My latest play through on my first melee build reminded my how absolutely meh all of the bosses are. There are like 3 memorable areas in the base game, 2 of which are just cancer and all the rest are just fucking boring.

the one true God is Doctor Doom and we should all be worshiping him.
I like the delayed explosions on Midir's Shin Godzilla laser attack.

Dude's an ass but the game itself looks pretty good and is getting lots of positive feedback.

Sometimes I don't understand Dark Souls. Spent 2 hours yesterday trying to defeat Blue Koolaid to no avail. Today I beat him on my third try.¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This was probably the most fun fighting a boss in DS2.

Thee Questions: Why the Vessel Shield instead of one of the Grasscrest-style sheilds?
Did you seriously farm ALL those lifegems or did you just buy them with the souls you didnt use to level?
Got invaded by a non-NPC, and if so how did it go?

(Speaking of invasions, it always blows my mind that the NPC phantoms have such obscenely inflated HP.)

The vessel shield increases vigor, endurance, adaptability, faith and intelligence by 1 and strength and dexterity by 4 which is needed to meet the Rapier's requirements along with the dexterity ring.
The gold pine resin and lifegems were all bought with the souls that I couldn't use to level up.
Yes, I got invaded. Got one-shot. Thanks soul memory.

Are you looking forward to the lightning reindeer part of Eleum Loyce as soul level 1?

Oh god no. I imagine that they'll one-shot me. I wonder if alluring skulls will work on them so I can distract them as I run past.

Edit: Right before the ice bridge to the boss room there are 2-3 paindeer that spawn, plus a npc with power-stanced avelyns.



Well designed fun.

Are the reindeer and the npc by the bridge added in Scholar? Didn't even bother finishing the area on original release, wasn't fun and not even a new boss at the end so I said fuck it. Might try again next time I play 2, but that sounds even more annoying.

I think the npc was added in Scholar, but the reindeer were there before. I think. The worse part is that even if you run past them they will chase you to the boss door.


Taken right before I got massacred.

Who the bloody hell is this?
Just beat post-nerf Ludwig for the first time. He's too easy now.

Shame since this was the best boss in the series.

This happened simply form me playing the game. I'd like to go to Japan just to drag Hidetaka Miyazaki out of his office and bludgeon him to death in the middle of the streets with a bat.

I didn't know rage breaking was playing the game. No wonder I'm bad at PvP.

Me on b.net on my first playthrough:
Quote
Finished up DkS1 last night, and I wasn't too impressed. The last of the four souls I collected was from the Bed of Chaos, so the last few hours of the game for me were the Demon Ruins and Lost Izalith.
Demon Firesage was easy as shit, Centipede Demon was easy as shit (except for some framerate trouble from the lava), and the Ceaseless Discharge literally kills itself. The Bed of Chaos wasn't even a boss fight, you just have to whack three things with your sword. Then all that's left is Gwyn, right? He was no harder than a typical black knight, and he went down with 5 fireballs. For basically everything being demons born from fire, or in Gwyn's case the 'Lord of Cinder', they all go down easy from pyromancy.
Anyways, it was a great game and I enjoyed the fights, it was just a bit disappointing to breeze through the last levels and curbstomp all the bosses. Even the infamous Tomb of Giants was easy.

What a fucking faggot I was.

Does Gwyn actually die from 5 fireballs?

Not fireballs, but whatever the strongest pyro attack is, and Gwyn is weak to fire. I was probably overleveled for NG though.

Attack rating of 769 at SL1. That's higher than my SL120 characters. Thanks Miyazaki.
