You need to

6??

Oh my god, you can heal the looking glass knight? Oh lord, all the trollolo.
I got myself summoned like 3 times and I was playing the "Corrupt Patches" (It's basically Pate's armour with a dark mask, don't ask, I like to do this **** alot) and I was using a Poison Ricard's rapier with 3 different pyromancy spells that were poison like.

It was so fun seeing the host focus on me alone and get rekt by the LGK. **** was so cash. But it's no fun when host got 2 sunbros.

as cringey as it is, im emotionally attatched to dark souls 1, especially firelink and the undeadburg cause thats when my life was really good.

i don't think they bothered connecting the maps since you could teleport from the start.
#132 to #70 - ninheldin (06/28/2014) [-]
The worst part about the world connectivity was that when you looked out at other places from Majula they looked a lot farther away than the walk to them would be, this is most noticeable with Hilde's Tower of Flame

mfw the poison mines.

Not the hardest area, but diffidently one of the more annoying.

You can literally run through that area and get to the boss in 10 minutes.
User avatar #205 to #130 - ashedust (06/30/2014) [-]
But for those who wanted to actually go through it...
User avatar #142 to #130 - frenzyhero ONLINE (06/28/2014) [-]
6 minutes. 4 if you choose to not burn the windmill. But you'd lose that time you gained since the fight would be longer. If on ng1 I recommend skipping it and just getting Jester. He nukes hard enough so counteract her healing, even if you dont use pyros
User avatar #147 to #142 - tylosaurus (06/28/2014) [-]
You're thinking of earthen peak, not harvest valley. The boss in harvest valley is covetous demon.
You can do what misticalz said.
User avatar #148 to #147 - frenzyhero ONLINE (06/28/2014) [-]
oh jabba

people actually considered him a boss ?
User avatar #150 to #148 - tylosaurus (06/28/2014) [-]
Of course. Why would he not be? You get a boss soul, there's a fog gate, it's right before a new area. A lot more hp than normal enemies. Definitely a boss.

Difficulty =/= boss.
User avatar #151 to #150 - frenzyhero ONLINE (06/28/2014) [-]
when a red phantom sickle guy takes more dmg than a giant worm dude than jabba just cant be a boss. hell dreglings were more of a threat.

know what was a fun boss? that guy in black gulch, the boss of where you find Havels armor. I forget his name, but I remember he had a really wacky and out of place aoe attack. He was overall a bad boss but was fun to fight. twin dragonriders was cool too
User avatar #154 to #151 - tylosaurus (06/28/2014) [-]
Whatever you mean, no.
He is a boss, that's a fact and that's how it officially is.
User avatar #157 to #154 - frenzyhero ONLINE (06/28/2014) [-]
fine w/e but in that case every other enemy is a boss too.

overall game was way too easy anyway
#163 to #161 - frenzyhero ONLINE (06/28/2014) [-]
Game was hyped too much, plain and simple.
#164 to #163 - tylosaurus (06/28/2014) [-]
Your logic is stupid, not every enemy is a boss.

People hyping it, stop letting that affect your opinion. Learn 2 be objective.
Also, like I said above in another comment. I find it pretty common that people didn't like dark souls 2 as much because of some nostalgia factor and the fact that they found dark souls 2 "easier" since they have played the first one before. Don't be a baka.
#165 to #164 - frenzyhero ONLINE (06/28/2014) [-]
When all the enemies are easy up to NG10+ then why even have any bosses at all?

I am objective. The game was repetitive, the 'bosses' were bland and poorly designed, and when the community can refer to 2 different areas as Blighttown 2.0, then there's a problem. The PvP was worse than what Dark Souls 1 launched with, though it did have many less game breaking bugs - There are still obviously failed mechanics that they can't reverse. The whole infusion process is one overpowered mess that completely invalidates all Quality builds, for example.

Onto how people find DkS2 easier simply because they played the first. My brother is terrible. At everything. To even clear Anor Londo it took him 100 hours. He doesn't play PvP or hunt for every item. He just sucks. Dark Souls 2, without even finishing Dark Souls 1, he managed to clear in a month, at about 90 hours.

and touhou thread go or what?
User avatar #173 to #165 - tylosaurus (06/28/2014) [-]
That depends on the person. I'm sure there is an example of someone being stuck somewhere in forever and not being able to clear it.
Also, you're supporting my argument there. When you have played the first and become used to it, you're going to have an easier time with the second game.
User avatar #171 to #165 - tylosaurus (06/28/2014) [-]
Not all enemies are easy up to NG10+, don't kid yourself mister 360xXNoscopeProxXOfnever-dying-ness.

Objective my ass. What's objective about saying a boss is bland? What's objective about saying the pvp is bad? Put some reason into those arguments.
Here:
The game was just as repetitive as the first one. Even though that's highly argueable. Most games are "repetitive". Few exceptions. Though it greatly helps with the huge selection of play-styles that you can hand-pick and mix yourself so it doesn't become too repititve.
"Bland". I think I need you to elaborate on that before I argue for or against that. (Well, I need you to elaborate on most of your claims..)
They can do that, but that doesn't make it true. Oh, there are wooden obstacles that you can climb on? BLIGHTTOWN 2.0 GG, **** game amirite. It's not like it's a totally new area with completely new enemies or anything. Not like there are new forms of traps either amirite.

The PvP definitely was not worse than dark souls 1. Dark souls 1 was backstabbing paradise of faggotry. Holy **** it was boring. "Here let me circle you for half an hour until I can pretty much one-shot you!". You call that interesting? In dark souls 2, it isn't as easy to get a backstab in and there are numerous ways of preventing a backstab with the help of items. Forcing you to actually have a proper fight.
Not to mention the connectivity. Holy **** they improved that at least ten fold. Their ****** peer-to-peer made it atrocious to try and invade anyone or connect in any way with a friend. **** , they also added that ring to help you. Whenever I press my cracked red eye orb, I pretty much always invade instantly. It's ******* magical compared to the first. Also, the horrible peer to peer **** connection.. I was almost up against ****** laggers. Not so much anymore, but there are of course a few flaws. Can't be perfect. Infusion was a great thing. It's not overpowered. Especially not since you can easily infuse a weapon youtself.

wall of text
Velstadt has the 4 attacks. 3 I can actually recall. 1 attack instant kills and is essentially great resonant soul with twice as fast speed and near infinite dmg (full wardens dark ring +2 and 2600 hp 1 shot), a hammer smash and a jump hammer smash.

Gulch guy looked like a massive glob. His room looked nothing like his level, and didn't even feature poison. Instead he had a massive AoE that again, would 1 shot most players. He had a grab attack, 2 cleaver smashes and a swipe.

Sinner was special.

Bone Witch guys were special, though they were sorta Nito 2.0 with all the skeletons. Flame Swathe made them a joke.

Serpent Queen of the poison valley was easy. Too slow, basic movesets, not special gimmicks.

Iron King - boring. Sidestepping all day.

Gimmicks are good. A single interesting gimmick is better than hundreds of boring practical movesets, as long as no BoC. It's like the whole game was teaching me, for no reason.

DkS1 was easy to punish BSers with by releasing lock rolling back then relocking. Press R1 and you punish. Also, in high level PvP, unless you chain BS, you won't get a kill from 1 shot BS, unless you're stacking buffs.

Yeah the connection has improved for the most part, but that doesn't change how literally every single competitive player is using some form of dark magic. GRW is the strongest buff, GRS is the most versatile hex, and with spices, all magic is a joke. I shouldn't be able to have 4 stacks of WOG with 10 FTH. Infusing a wpn then buffing it shouldnt give it a 66-75% dmg boost. Every infused weapon shouldn't have higher DPS than a noninfused wepn with the same stats.

DkS2 PvP is spam GRS all day, and Miracle Healing all day. At least in DkS1 both players had equal opportunity healing. In DkS1, dex were the only stunlocking wpns, now everything does it. DkS1 wasn't 1 hit you're dead like DkS2. Last I played DkS2 it was Havels MLGS or get #rekt.


Could go on but char limit.
User avatar #178 to #174 - frenzyhero ONLINE (06/28/2014) [-]
Glob guy had no reason for that AoE either. I want you to go fight him and tell me where that AoE comes from. It just shows up. Looks like a Star Fox smart bomb, for chrissakes. Sif was a giant wolf, Bigs and Smalls was a tag fight with two clashing styles, Kalameet was insane and had his calamity debuff, Nito did massive army of skeletons first, 4Kings did that awesome space distortion thing where you didn't really know where you were in their level. Iron Golem could fall off and that was so cool, I didn't even know about it until I saw a video of it.

And when you have played every single playstyle, there is nothing left. There is a clear winner in PvP, the hexdex build is perfect. It can do everything, with superior defense and speed, with some of the highest dmg in game, complete with how easy it is to stunlock with the espada and wp combo.

Im done because I'm tired now, but on the note of how difficult it is to connect with friends, that is because they intended it to be that way. They wanted random encounters, not one person guiding another through the entire game, or even more than a level.
User avatar #177 to #174 - tylosaurus (06/28/2014) [-]
I think your problem is not similarities, but that you fear the changes.
and you just seem bad at dodging magics. It's easy as **** to dodge magic and punish them.

If they spam the Great resonant soul, dodge through it and attack them. They can't do **** when you're close. Miracle healing takes a lot of time, I love it when they use it because it's basically a free kill for me most of the time.
and no, they didn't have equal opportunity of healing. The only reason I use miracle healing in PvP is when I'm invading and the ****** runs off to chug all his estus like a casul.
Dex were definitely not the only stunlocking weapons. You could do it with heavy weapons if you wanted to. Not that stunlocking till the person is dead is any fun. Seems like you're 2 casul to hit a moving target. You also seem to get 1hit a lot. Never really had that problem what so ever.
User avatar #184 to #177 - frenzyhero ONLINE (06/28/2014) [-]
Miracle Healing takes 1/8th of a second. If you hit them after they raise the chime it's already gone through and resolved, they still get the heal. If you don't immediately stunlock them then it's essentially what tanking to use a humanity was in dks1 was.

Yeah I tended to get 1shot killed a lot. That tends to happen in NG10+. Dex was the easiest wpn class to stunlock with and still is, but now bloody everything can stunlock.

I don't fear change, honestly I don't care what they do to the 'series' now it's been tainted , I just know the game has obvious issues when I can 2-3shot someone with a GRW WP and stunlock a person in havels with my bare fists. Combined with all the reused textures sounds and music from first game, the boring movesets of enemies and bosses, then why even bother
User avatar #186 to #184 - tylosaurus (06/28/2014) [-]
but they can't move at all, so it makes it pretty easy. Why complain about that? You've got your overpowered infusioned weapon. It shouldn't be a problem, right?
Are you honestly judging the game from the perspective of NG10+? You have got to be kidding me.

Oh no, **** you from software, you ruined the meta from dark souls 1 and didn't put it into dark souls 2! **** YOOOOU! Stop balancing the game oh my god! (Also, the way poise work is different, so you can prevent getting stunlocked).
>As if there weren't easy ways to 2-3 shot people in the first one.
>As if stunlock is everything about PvP
You seem like you're very dependant on stunlocking. Top kek.
It's common to re-use stuff from a previous game in the series. Most companies do that. It doesn't even look like the first one, so I hardly think they re-used that many textures. Why would they need to remake it though? It's the same game, but in the future. It'd be stupid to like.. change how the estus flask looks. No need for that.
User avatar #188 to #186 - frenzyhero ONLINE (06/28/2014) [-]
No they didnt change the meta, the meta is still dex. It's just now they gave that meta the strongest magic in the game.

Poise is ******** this time, it only serves to BE stunlocked. You can literally fist someone to death because poise is ******** .

Yes stunlock is everything in pvp, when you vie for every single hit.

Have you ever played against any real players and not just random scrubs?

On the subject of healing, since you've obviously never played as the invader, my only source of healing is a miracle that I may not have, while the host can have more than 900 heals, if you count those things that restore spell uses they were spices in demons souls old spices. They can't move for about an 1/8th of a second, you seem to misunderstand that. You're never going to be always on the enemy. Never. That's a terrible idea, it'll get you killed, But not doing that will just let them heal.

Jesus man actually play the game. It'd be a waste of your time, but don't just bitch if you don't know what you're even bitching about, since it's apparent you're just playing against randoms.
#189 to #188 - tylosaurus (06/28/2014) [-]
Nooo, not really. A lot dropped dex and went for faith/str.
People also do enjoy using a mundane santier spear with mundane avelyns.

No, poise is good if you're an aggressive ************ . It makes it so you can't get interrupted when you attack, potentially YOU stunlocking the ENEMY without being INTERRUPTED. Like, you know how you could swing your huge ass sword and someone with a dagger simply just made you stop attacking? No more of that ******** .

No, it's not. Stop being a casual and learn to hit a moving target without needing to lock on.
Swing the sword, hit them. If they run away, use ranged attacks or follow them. Pretty damn simple. If they constantly shield, use the shield break and punish them. No longer people just hiding behind a huge ass great shield.
Yeah, but it seems you haven't. If they get out of a stunlock, simply just follow them. If you can't kill anything without them just standing still and not moving, then you must be one of them scrubs.

but I invade all the time. I have like 20 cracked red eye orbs left on my NG character. I had a stack of 99. That means I PvP'd around 99 times and won.
I also PvP'ed to level up beyond full in the dragon covenant to get dragon scales.

Yeah, the host has always been able to heal like a ************ and I don't like that either, but that's how from made it. You are invading a world of someone unwilling to PvP most of the time anyways. It's best to be near the enemy, unless you're a squishy sorry little magic fag. Which I assume you are.

No, really. What kind of insult is that? Think whatever you want, your arguments have proven that you're totally a scrubomatic 9000.

User avatar #207 to #206 - tylosaurus (06/30/2014) [-]
Was also easy. Just run through everything, pick up the items.
Poisoned, so what? Just chug estus when you need it. Go back to bonfire, proceed to run to boss/kill **** .

DS stands for other things you know.
That's why you add the "a" of DaS.

Just like this: UT stands for Unreal Tournament but there's another game called Urban Terror, which also stands for UT. So to know the differences, Urban Terror is now UrT.

So that's why it's DaS and not DS.

More people associate Dark Souls with DS. It doesn't matter if Demon Souls came out. It wasn't commercially successful and was blown the **** out in sales. It can't claim a name if the vast majority of the community now associates DS with Dark Souls. Demon Souls lost the claim.

I preferred the first one honestly, there was too much hype over this one for being the same exact thing.   
   
 Then with people "Omg its so hard, hardest game ever!" only if you suck and can't memorize enemy attack patterns.  you can litterally not get touched, except for the random arrow every so often.   
    
   
I did like it, don't get me wrong but the community is getting worse but that's probably just the asshole in me saying "I found it first i'm better"   
   
But there's a lot less back stabs this time around! so that's great. But magic seems a bit over powered imo. Hexes are okay since they take forever to shoot off, and dodge.   
   
Also the fanbase for this game can be complete 			****		 at times, posting in places they shouldn't.   
   
Looking forward to the DLC though! and in the hopes that the "Dark souls isn't for cAsuals xD" people leave because its too hard for them.   
   
Sorry for my opinions.

Then with people "Omg its so hard, hardest game ever!" only if you suck and can't memorize enemy attack patterns. you can litterally not get touched, except for the random arrow every so often.


I did like it, don't get me wrong but the community is getting worse but that's probably just the asshole in me saying "I found it first i'm better"

But there's a lot less back stabs this time around! so that's great. But magic seems a bit over powered imo. Hexes are okay since they take forever to shoot off, and dodge.

Also the fanbase for this game can be complete **** at times, posting in places they shouldn't.

Looking forward to the DLC though! and in the hopes that the "Dark souls isn't for cAsuals xD" people leave because its too hard for them.

Sorry for my opinions.

A lot preffered the first and I see it as some sort of "nostalgia" factor. You admitted it yourself too "I did like it, don't get me wrong but the community is getting worse but that's probably just the asshole in me saying "I found it first i'm better" ".
The second game seems easier than the first because you played the first. It's similar, and that's why you're having an easier time. Also, it'd be pretty stupid to expect a whole new game that isn't very similar to the first when it's literally called "Dark souls... 2". Of course it will be much like the first.

Magic is indeed powerful, but it has always been like that. On the contrary though, all spells are pretty much incredibly easy to dodge. The most powerful magic is completely useless in PvP (pretty much..) since it's hard as dicks to hit ANYTHING with it. Also, if you're feel like trying an interesting build, check this out.
MAYHEM (Dark Souls II) AMENO - Magic Immunity

One more thing. The fandom has pretty much always been like that. Praise the sun, this is the hardest game ever yadda yadda yadda. I wouldn't blame dark souls 2 for that, other than it just sparked the hype again.

I know and I've always hated most of the fandom, but like i said i really do enjoy the 2nd, but unlike number 1 the initial wow factor for me dissipated very quickly.

And holy **** that's fricken amazingly unfair but so awesome because everyone exploits the magics too much.

But in regards to the being the same as the first, there was basically nothing different story wise that bugged me. in fact the story seemed a bit too obscure even if From Soft. does like to let the player interpret the story how they see fit there was just run here, killed that thing that i didn't even know existed, looking for an hour and a half for the next route, kill another boss that i know nothing of except the name, so on and so forth.

But i suppose being such a big fan of the first it's hard not to be biased against it. It is growing on me though.

One last thing, there doesn't seem to be any co-op pvp places. like the lost forest in no.1. and that gets to me because the forest was an amazing place to have a great time with friends and strangers, you really can't even do that in the bell towers.

So if there is a place to co-op pvp that i'm missing you should let me know!

You can always find PvPs at iron keep's bridge. It's filled with pvp signs and people that host phantom vs phantom fight arenas.
Join the brotherhood of blood if you want to invade people. You can duel other people at the statues where you join the brotherhood.
You get frequent invasions in bell covenant too.
Invading anywhere pretty much instantly lets you pvp others. At least to my experience.
#197 to #196 - aviators (06/29/2014) [-]
i suppose that is true, but i dont know how to explain it, the forest was a huge environment, little enemies, and a lot of invasions, whereas the bell towers you cant even put down a sign before getting invaded, even when hollow, so there goes your option of pvping with a friend, which is one reason i like the original so much, you could just sit in the forest with your friend get invaded by phantoms, you don't even get a break in the bell towers.   
   
But i'm just being a whiny bitch, well if you play on xbox  : The Sun Warrior, look for me! and i know what the name implies and yes i was one of those "praise the sun faggots" when i first started but i caught on to how annoying that is, but i think its a neat name.

Not sure why you want to be a ganking lil **** though. It's enough that hosts can chug estuses like a madman.
If you want to co-op, put on the co-op ring. Get sin for more invasions I guess? It's more active in new game plus though, because you can actually buy the cracked red eye orbs there.

I play on pc.
User avatar #199 to #198 - aviators (06/29/2014) [-]
not really ganking but gank prevention, bell tower ***** just run away until another one appears and they gank the **** out of you. No one honors duels that ive encountered.
#200 to #199 - tylosaurus (06/29/2014) [-]
but you just said you don't go there or intend to.
User avatar #201 to #200 - aviators (06/29/2014) [-]
yes, i don't but that's how i first tried pvping before i got sick of getting ganked, so if i had a friend or a stranger, thats gank prevention. but yeah like i said previously i'm also just a little bitch.

But anyways thanks for the conversation.

y'know what i don't ****** get? why hasn't vaatividya or ENB made a video about ******* lucatiel of lindelt? i swear to god if she doesn't have some insanely deep lore then i've gone hollow much like her . like seriously she says her brother must have come through here, so theres gotta be something about him somewhere, right? fromsoft had to have put an intricate backstory for all of those backround-ish characters. i mean they put all that effort into the whole aldia and vendrick story thing so... yeah. rant over i guess
User avatar #73 to #67 - bioexplain (06/28/2014) [-]
You meet her brother in Aldia's Keep. He's a dark spirit who invades you. Her backstory is just that she is slowly going hollow and in the end she gives you her equipment because she knows that's it for her. That's how I see it anyway, the fact that she just gets more and more hollow every time you talk to her was really quite saddening.
User avatar #74 to #73 - unlithe (06/28/2014) [-]
he was a dark spirit in aldia's keep? i guess i need to go through there again. ng+ only or ng? also i know that much but i'm sure theres more. a lot more, knowing fromsoft
User avatar #75 to #74 - bioexplain (06/28/2014) [-]
Aslatiel of Mirrah is his name. He invades in Aldia's keep from the start but he also invades Huntsman's Copse at NG+3
User avatar #76 to #75 - unlithe (06/28/2014) [-]
hm. neat. thanks, bioexplain. i guess i'll go kill him tomorrow while i'm just sitting in this chair for the entire god damn day... what am i doing with my life summer...
User avatar #77 to #76 - bioexplain (06/28/2014) [-]
Hey now, I'm sure there's stuff to do. If you just sit in that chair all day, gaming won't be as fun to you and you eventually find it tedious. When I feel like I've been idle for too long, I head to a scrap yard and take stuff apart to see if I can use anything to make cool **** , but you could always just go out somewhere nice. I know, buy a disposable grill and have a nice grill-up in the park with some mates.
User avatar #191 to #77 - unlithe (06/28/2014) [-]
>having friends
anyways, know any good places to get parts that could be used in a basic 3D printer? i wanted to build one but i doubt the local scrap yard would have the right parts. need smaller and harder to find stuff for that.
User avatar #192 to #191 - bioexplain (06/28/2014) [-]
Quite a piece of specialized tech. I don't think you would be able to get the parts for it without going to the source of where they make them. But honestly you would have to find out. The internet is a good place to start.
User avatar #193 to #192 - unlithe (06/28/2014) [-]
true, although all i'd really need is a few motors, a heating cone, some tracks, a cooling fan, and some wire. a frame wouldn't be too hard to make myself and i could just splice a plug cord into it for a power source.

From what I can tell the side characters don't have the same kind of intricate back storys like they did in DS1

I actually agree with you 100 percent. Im a huge fan and subscriber to vaatividya and have been wanting some DS2 character and boss lore. I wanna see one of his style videos on Lucatiel, The last sinner, and everyones favorite laser beam rape your face spider abomination freja DEAR freja *shivers

I was just wondering that too, it makes no sense...
User avatar #47 to #42 - bladeariet ONLINE (06/28/2014) [-]
DaS= Dark souls
DeS= Demons souls

To avoid confusion between Demon Souls and Dark Souls. :3

Everyone calls it DS, or DS2. Demon's souls is DeS.
