Nice. I been summoning more on my other characters just because it's nice and chill and I basically just like leveling new builds. Currently dinking around on a assassin that I respecced to be pure sorc once I had enough spare points to make it work. Slowing down some though starting to think I may need a new game to hold my interest soon.

Well if you hadn't started so many alts at one time you probably wouldn't have burned out.

WRONG! Burnt out already. New Survival mode is annoying when you do the entire concord quest line and get one shot to a 90 percent dead deathclaw three times while in power armor. That's like 45 minutes from the last bed in red rooster. Yeah **** that.

Will set it to very hard so I can actually save after I do 45 minutes of non challenging rote gameplay before I get to the stupid dice toss. Might even just bust out one of my OP OG toons instead of starting a new one just to see the new stuff. I heard its 30-40 hours of content anyway but I suspect they are all too high level and will power through it at boring level.

Happy Mediums people. Also yeah Dark Souls and stuff.

Just got my deposit remainder last night. They ****** us out of $200, which I'm going to have to fight in order to have enough to get a PS4. Otherwise, I should be able to save up enough to cover remainder by next month thanks to holiday pay on the 4th. Hopefully.

In case you're curious, the itemized list has a charge for $200 for "damage to carpet in living room and bedroom". Further down, it reads, "Keep in mind we did not charge you the cost of replacing the carpet that was ruined in the living room and one of the bedrooms." Smiley: dubious

The carpet was 12 years old and they were due to replace it anyway is why they weren't charging us, so I'm really ******* lost as to the reason for the charge. Gonna call in about twenty minutes and try to figure this **** out.


Edit: Smiley: motz
They rushed to rent it out again and decided to charge us for another cleaning on the carpet rather than replacing it.

What a bunch of bastards! I think there may be a law they can't charge you to replace carpet after 6 years. It just needs to be replaced at that point. Not a lawyer though so YMMV.

Half way tempted to just start a new BB character with the idea of prepping to focus on one of the new DLC weapons. I should at leazst play Tomb Raider and MGS V first though so they don't rot in my collection and go on a bigger sale by fall before I even play them. Smiley: lol

Started up yesterday(after I should have gone to bed, but that's a whole other thing). Rolled a pyro as someone else suggested to start. Died on the first boss once thanks to some putz game dev deciding that the left hand was where the flame should start. Smiley: tongue

Played up til I reached Firelink. Gotta post the next chapter of my story, make breakfast(watch some anime while I eat), then more playin'.

On a side note, we ended up having to make my PS4 my buddy's main PS4 and make his my main in order to get the game sharing thing working properly. Was kinda weird. In the old days(PS3), you could just have two main systems.

I think we can do password based co-op with no level restrictions, so if you let me know if you're planning a Dex or Str based pyro build I can give you a few weapons early. Also remember that Fire is evenly influenced by Int/Fth, so try to keep it balanced as well.

I too am on the PS4 for DS3... Could rock and sock some undeadbots. Glad to hear you got it Pol and yes pyro is a very solid starter, access to all early utility spells and once you get GCF well sir, you will burn them. You will burn them all.

I bought the expansion for Bloodborne as well. Then I decided i was way to rusty so I rolled a fresh toon to re-acclimate. Then I went on a Diablo 3 bender and leveled both a monk and Barb to 70 since I did not have those toons leveled. Barb is now T10 and Monk is T6 eith only a 2 piece set bonus so far. O.o

I did research on that before I rolled the character, and actually, the Int/Fth thing functions like Fire in DS2 and not Dark(I was worried it'd be like the latter), so it's (Int+Fth)/2 instead of being based on the lowest of the two(which was a stupid setup). At least early on, it really only matters that I have points in one or the other, not so much which I put points in. The upside being that if I want to meet minimum requirements on utility sorc or miracles, I'll be good to go while still upping my fire damage. Smiley: grin

Took out the Boreal knight dude in the walls area. Had a minor bit of trouble at first, but deciding to explore some more and finding that 100% reduction shield made a world of difference. As far as mooching some high level stuff, thanks, but I'm gonna try to play without any such boosts. Just what I can find in game.* That said, I'm thinking of dropping my sign in front of the boreal knight room to see if anyone wants some Jolly Cooperation so I can farm enough souls to buy the tower key. Buddy told me there's another flask shard up there and I wants it.

Srsly love that they got rid of that stupid *** soul memory system. That thing was dildos.


*Nonetheless, if you wanna add me as a friend, my PSN username is just Poldaran. Unless they added weirdness to the names for PS4 that wasn't there on PS3.

Be careful as you may get summoned for the Dancer fight instead. Sort of like DS2 when you put sign down for Dragonrider and someone grabs you for Dragonslayer instead.

It may be faster to get a ranged weapon and use the dragon near the second bonfire to farm souls. Like in the video but you don't need to run down the long path to trigger the second fire breath. Just stand behind the wall next to the top of the stairs..

Honestly I usually like to solo and learn the bosses for the first time through, so I totally get not wanting to get boosted. I did sunbro some just for fun when I had a boss down. :)

*Frosty dog is waaaay easier to co-op. I actually did farm some souls there. I never got dancer summoned when I did it because I was to low soul level I think.

Anyway, but seriously. That's kinda annoying, but at least I've found enemies I can farm them from. Oh well. Onionbro and I downed a demon, I found the pyromancer and all is going well enough thus far.

Like the other games titanite shards are stingy early on but you will be swimming in them eventually. Don't be afraid to add fire to a weapon either those drop pretty frequently later as well.

Onionbro is awesome, but man if I did not manage to bug his questline on all 3 of my play throughs... Poof onionbro is no longer where he should be because you just had to go to a place early for your build and broke the logic chain. Smiley: frown

I flamed up my starter axe and then, almost immediately afterward, found the dark axe in the first zone, which is a better base axe. So that's what I'm using. I farmed shards for a bit, getting enough souls in the process to open the tower. Downed two bosses today. Uploading my boss kill for Crystal Sage is a must, so I'll be uploading all of them in a few minutes here.

As with previous entries in the series, getting fire orb is just the greatest.

I do like how you conserved by using throwing knives on the clones though. Sage is one of those fights that seems spank easy when it goes well, but during clone phase it can go spectacularly wrong really fast. During my sunbro time there I saw a lot of hosts die because they tried to ignore the clones and burn the main one only to get wtfoneshot by dual clone barrages from opposite sides of the map. I always take those suckers down and try to keep the fight under control even if it takes a bit longer.

That one came by accident in the previous attempt, actually. I accidentally switched to knives after using a blue kool aid in prep for the adds, took a hit, tried to use the regular flask, and hit one with a knife. Then I had an epiphany, right before my brains splatted all over the floor. Smiley: laugh

Noice. Love it when that kind of thing happens.

Anyway, here's some more vids. Deacons of the Deep and Abyss Watchers. Deacons was a bit hard for me. Kept dying during phase 2 to either damage or curse. So, frustrated, I went wandering around the Farron swampland looking for the two tomes I knew were in there, hoping maybe one would have something useful(also, wanted the shard I knew was in there somewhere). Well, I found something useful alright. First try using Iron Flesh, and bam, down. Abyss watchers was just easy for my playstyle, overall. Dodge back, Fire Orb when I got an opening, repeat. Died twice on the fight, though. Once to dodging sideways when I meant to dodge back, and once during phase one when the "stuck on the wall" boss ganked me.

The video might still be there, just check all the 15 minute blocks to see if the fight is one of them.

Also not DS3 related, but I was just made aware of this. DS2 spoilers inside.

Three new boss vids. For the record, I found Old Demon King to be a major PITA. Might not have died so many times if I were using sorceries other than utility spells, but I want to do mostly pyromancy and weapons for damage. Ended up getting him on my first try after grinding up the souls to raise my faith high enough to use Black Snake. Meleeing was a nightmare. Kept getting stuck on his feet, or his elbow, or his tail. Then my camera would lose lock on randomly, causing me to run the wrong direction at the worst times.
Spoiler Text

Second boss was the Pontiff. Easy as pie. First try even.


Third boss was the first one I went in knowing a fair bit about, but only because I've been reading lore stuff on TVTropes, and of course they mention tag teaming Yhorm with OnionBro. Of course, my inventory is a mess and I spent a good 20s in the first fight just trying to find Stormbringer. Hence, OnionBro died, followed by me shortly after. Took me a couple tries to work out the dodge timing, but not a terribly difficult fight, overall.


Beyond that, my pyromancy arsenal is pretty much complete now that I've rescued Karla. Have Fire and Dark pyros, a Simple axe for magic damage(lost about 14 damage converting it, but that's aight), and a Knights Crossbow with lightning bolts if I really find myself needing lightning damage.


Edit: Heh. Arsenal gets caught by the google filters.

I did. That might be something to look into, though I do still kinda like the Simple axe for a few extra spells while clearing.

Edit: Huh. I hadn't considered it because it's a lightning weapon, but the wiki says it is, in fact, buffable. Might consider that with lightning weapon for bosses that I'm gonna melee.

Best part is that the even raw the lightning effect tends to stunlock some enemies.

So, apparently, it has an interesting property where if you give it Faith scaling of any kind, the lightning - which normally doesn't scale - begins scaling. Sounds like if you give it a Blessed enchant, you could actually get both Physical and Lightning to scale off of your faith. It would lose its ability to be buffed, mind you, but hey, it's an interesting thing. Edit: I kinda wonder how it'd work with a Hollow enchant, now that I think about it.

Killed four more bosses last night(3 one shots, one where I ended up going to a different area to get the mats to full upgrade my flame after like a dozen tries). Vids tomorrow, probably. Got a thing tonight, where I'm hoping not to be judged too harshly on my pathetic attempt at making a bday cake.

I checked all the infusion scaling and seriously nothing compares to Raw. If you were going with a Faith based infusion then double down on Lightning, Blessed just gives you a very minimal HP regen.

That fire demon is no joke lol. I pretty much cheesed him every time (bow for days on my non caster toons). Dark Orb works great btw. It even hits harder than GCF on some mobs.

So there I was in Bloodborne cruising along, thinking wow the DLC is almost bright, dusty but brighter at least. I'm totally going to do this, get back into it and stuff. Then I got to the first boss. Now I can take vagi tooth faced bosses. ( I guess if I have too) I can take genticles for days. But for some reason the moment I saw that retarded dog face boss I was done. Full stop. I'm not playing anymore. I'm out.

But the good news is I started a new toon in DS3! Oh man the magic is back. Dark souls forever, it's such a slight bit of differences but I prefer DS over BB immensely. So I rolled a new Herald, decided it's ok if he does not use spears sometimes and gave him a Astora Straight Sword (raw). It's lurvley. I plan to mix in some spears later but man that raw astora sword is so fookin great early.

Just kicked crystal sage to the curb. Enjoying the run so far. I wish they would just crank out a new Dark Souls every year. DS 7 the Wrekonater returns. Would pre-order. ***** Bloodborne though.Clausterphobic mind rape ****** dog bosses is not what I want. Plus ***** you I want a shield. And dragons, and flaming space whales and flaming unicorns. Actually nix those last two but I also played the opening to MGSV this week, then promptly lost interest in the game.

Death to giant crabs! I say.

Preach it, brother.

Boss video spam incoming! Previously promised videos:





2 more killed today. Smiley: grin



Only two left before the final boss. Three if you count the second Wyvern on the cliff.
