What's that? You think you're a badass because you finished the story mode/campaign? Well I have some bad news for you. Welcome to online play, where you will get killed instantly the moment you are spawned by campers and other more experienced players(who have a lot of free time for some reason).

Fire stuff doesn't help much when dying over and over to the Demon Smelter, dude was an asshole.

Then I got ****** over several times by the Royal Rat Authority, which i later found out was an optional boss i didn't really want anything to do with anyway.

The mother ****** had to be killed, it was at a personal level.

Besides, no way in hell would i want to go through the entire ******* keep to get to the last boss, i really needed the bonfire behind him.

.. Especially with the horrible **** up I made on the Old King. Just as he took the last shot of a lightning spear by a summoned phantom, he swiped horizontally at me, and i rolled out of range... right off the platform into lava...
User avatar #105 to #93 - corvah (03/31/2014) [-]
there is another bonfire past the smelter demon, right before old iron king. look in the cage like room with the fire traps before stepping outside of the keep.
User avatar #106 to #105 - corvah (03/31/2014) [-]
from this bonfire, there is only 1 turtle knight in your way before the boss fight.

I'm a dexterity fighter with elite knight armor sitting right at 69% on equipment load.
User avatar #92 to #90 - corvah (03/31/2014) [-]
dex character? the learn how to dodge or you won't get far mate :p all dex characters (and all mellee characters really) need to master the invincibility frames of rolling.
smelter demon is really easy once you know his attack pattern
User avatar #94 to #92 - darthblam ONLINE (03/31/2014) [-]
Yeah, dodging and surviving was no problem, the issue was that I dealt no ******* damage. I had no magical things to use on him, so I had to rely on casters that I summoned, but most of them died like dumb asses from his basic swings because they'd cast at the wrong time.
User avatar #95 to #94 - corvah (03/31/2014) [-]
heh, we've all had dumb phantoms ;P
but try aromatic ooze, you can get it from laddersmith gilligan in majula
User avatar #96 to #95 - darthblam ONLINE (03/31/2014) [-]
Yeah.. I tried that.. only increased by damage by about 10 points.. I think his defense especially blocked slashing weapons, my favorite sword is the Falchion at the moment..

I really need a good sword to imbue with some extra damage though, any suggestions on what would be most effective? Like.. I can't decide if fire or lightning would be better.
The two most upgraded weapons i have are a Falchion+8 and Ricard's Rapier+7
I recently bought the Warped Blade with the boss soul, and I like its scaling, but it seems to deal quite a bit less damage still. .. Also, I don't dual wield, I keep the Drangleic shield.
User avatar #97 to #96 - corvah (03/31/2014) [-]
dual falchions are great, the big disadvantage of imbuing is that it lowers stat scaling. falchions have A scaling in dex, making them really powerful for high dex characters, but after imbuing it, it only has C scaling. consider going dual falchion.
I would try looking for a good sorcerer, but you can take him down with pure physical damage. on my first run, I took him down with a +4 bastard sword, with a strength build. you just gotta stay focused, keep dodging and don't rush attacks.
#99 to #97 - darthblam ONLINE (03/31/2014) [-]
The game's roll timings feel broken as **** , I'm too scared to drop my shield.

.. Also Falchions only scale B with dexterity... or at least mine does...
User avatar #100 to #99 - corvah (03/31/2014) [-]
You're right, they do scale with B, my mistake.
And did you play ds1? because the rolls feel broken because the invincibility frame is decreased.
a lot of timings changed from ds1 and feel broken on ng+++ and still parry like armless dude
User avatar #101 to #100 - darthblam ONLINE (03/31/2014) [-]
Yeah.. I played DS1, and a NG+ on it.. yeah... the rolling times are especially shorter, and it feels almost impossible to time a parry now.

Also, how the hell do you riposte? I HAVE parried a few times, but then i just slash at them normally.. do only specific weapons do it?
User avatar #102 to #101 - corvah (03/31/2014) [-]
wait a bit before pressing attack, just a little .2 seconds
User avatar #103 to #102 - darthblam ONLINE (03/31/2014) [-]
That's ******** ...
User avatar #104 to #103 - corvah (03/31/2014) [-]
not really:
you can now get damaged during all animations (including riposte!), parrying is no longer purely a finishing move, it's also a way to knock an opponent out of combat for a few seconds.
if you are swarmed with enemies, you want to parry one enemy and immediately attack other enemies surrounding him, if you would accidentally enter the riposte animation in an attempt to attack surrounding enemies, you would get horribly murdered
User avatar #71 to #55 - Encarna (03/31/2014) [-]
I've not played Dark Souls 2 yet because I want it on PC. But 100% sounds like invincibility to me.
User avatar #73 to #71 - corvah (03/31/2014) [-]
technically, yes. but remember it's immunity to attacks on your shield, not anywhere else on your body, and attacks on your shield means stamina drain and eventually guard break. guard break = really big problem :/
and fire and physical aren't the only types of damage
User avatar #74 to #73 - Encarna (03/31/2014) [-]
I knew the last part, still 100% immunity still seems pretty good if you're building a lot of stamina.
User avatar #75 to #74 - corvah (03/31/2014) [-]
It is good, yes, but it's also heavy ( =slower roll, lower stamina regen) and it's a greatshield ( =no parry).
especially the weight makes it unapealing, it's extremely good against fire enemies, but there are shields with the same physical def that are twice as light.
User avatar #80 to #75 - Encarna (03/31/2014) [-]
No Havel's Ring type deal as of yet?
User avatar #81 to #80 - corvah (03/31/2014) [-]
yes, soldiers ring.
User avatar #82 to #81 - Encarna (03/31/2014) [-]
Surely that would counter the fat roll caused by the shield then?
User avatar #83 to #82 - corvah (03/31/2014) [-]
yes, but roll speed isn't the only thing that equipment load affects anymore. loq equip load has a significantly faster stamina regen then heavy equip load (almost twice as fast)
User avatar #84 to #83 - Encarna (03/31/2014) [-]
Still, if it's like Dark Souls then the Greatshields take less stamina damage from hits.
User avatar #86 to #84 - corvah (03/31/2014) [-]
they generally have a higher stability, yes. But you need to keep in mind that the 100% fire block is really situational, and there is no reason to use that shield if you are fighting a non fire enemy.

Hey guys, Bohemia here. We've implemented the new damp debuff, and also have made it more engaging to use melee weapons against zombies. We have also made the zombies slightly faster, and allowed them to respawn every few minutes. They still walk through walls and floors, but that is an issue that we must wait until a later patch to fix. But to make up for it, you can now use your can opener as a weapon. Thank you for spending $30 on this game!

Whe said we were sniping freshspawns? We let anyone who isn't being aggressive go. We only kill people we see killing others. And who the hell spawns near Balota anyways? They made it so nearly everyone spawns near Kamyshovo or Solnichniy now, with the occasional Berezino spawn.
#65 to #34 - pickausere (03/31/2014) [-]
anyone near the coastline with a sniper or any gun is a goddamn amateur that can only kill harmless people that just goddamn spawned, ranging from the firehouse campers in elektro(cocksuckers delux) to the random campers from hill near coastline, simple and clear if you got a gun go up north and camp airfields and blast away geared players as they would have something to counter your 300m shot compared to the fists and the random baseball bat people on the coastline got
User avatar #116 to #65 - ariakon (04/01/2014) [-]
You must be hard of hearing. I'm not a bandit, I kill bandits. If I see a geared player or a group and they start shooting at new spawns or just start kos-ing, then I kill them. Easy as that. So don't get so worked up when I told you this the first time, ******** . <3
#117 to #116 - pickausere (04/01/2014) [-]
you never said you weren't a bandit and instead of going down south to kill those already ******* over newspawns why not go up north and hinder them doing it at all, and calling someone a ******** is quite r00d you cockgoblin

It's almost as if there are bigger problems than me wanting to kill someone with a can opener? It's not like they made this game from scratch. There should not be nearly this many problems with the Standalone if the mod doesn't have nearly as many issues.
User avatar #32 to #31 - ariakon (03/31/2014) [-]
ESPECIALLY since the standalone alpha is more expensive than Arma II and the mod combined.

DayZ is a mod for ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead, using one of the maps from the game. Since it was a huge success, Bohemia Interactive hired the creator of the mod to make it into a standalone game, which is now in alpha.

The new zombie update is ******** imo. They run too fast and they STILL RUN THROUGH ******* WALLS!
User avatar #12 to #8 - coolioshades (03/31/2014) [-]
You need to picture these zombies like a group of people on massive adrenaline rushes. The infection they have has likely stopped them from feeling pain and therefore can push their muscles to the max. They run fast and hit hard but that's up to the survivor to adapt to.
User avatar #17 to #12 - strangemoo (03/31/2014) [-]
Yeah but..
Humans can't just phase through walls and neither can them.
#19 to #12 - awesomenesss (03/31/2014) [-]
I'm not upset about the fact they can run faster now, I actually thought that was a nice addition. I'm upset that they didn't fix the whole "running through walls" thing before making them run faster and hit harder.

That is exactly why I quit playing DayZ. I couldn't do anything, in any server, without some modding douche getting me magnetized to his cars bumper and running me over, getting immediately killed by a sniper or some crazy ************ with an ax, or, I'd walk onto something, it'd bug out, snap my legs, and I'd have to crawl forever, to find one good person who tries to help, then gets killed by some crazy ************ .

My first story on DayZ:
>30seconds in, I see a zombie running at me
>Kill it but start bleeding
>Wrap it with bandages made from shirt
>Follow alongside road until I can find a town/water since it says I'm thirsty
>Find a lake, drink from it, move on
>Find a town and search every house but don't find jack ****
>Also learn that getting through doors is the most annoying thing in the game
>Find a well and drink more than what should be humanly possible
>Now says I'm hungry
>Decide to just run straight since road ended at town
>Come next to ocean but see an island and decide to go towards it in hope of food
>Screen is almost totally grey from hunger/starvation
>Climb up giant tower
> **** , nothing up here
>Jump since I was gonna die anyways
