Necromanced. I find myself playing this game a lot recently with my second character. Finally joined the Sunbro covenant and it's now my most favorite thing ever. Has anyone else besides D, Dion, and Q played this yet? If not, what are you waiting for? D:

Did you ever finish Dark Souls? o.o I never dabbled in the multiplayer my first playthrough but on my second I'm using it more and more. I'm still not a huge fan of people invading (always seem to be super powerful/one shots or do lame things like poison you off the bat) but cooperative taking down bosses is crazy fun. I fought Smough and Ornstein three + times yesterday. Twice helped out take them down and one for myself where I enlisted the aid of two others.

^Can someone balete that thread

Also yeah, I never finished the game and am on my second attempt to do so. I have to say, I appreciate the game a lot more this time around. It might just be because I'm hard moding it. It seemed a lot easier than Demon's Souls before and now it's pretty difficult. Going for a STR/DEX/FAI build, tho. We need more activity here pl0x.

What exactly are your methods of hard moding? The game isn't too bad the second time through at all, really. I finished like I said a NG+ with one of my characters and it wasn't as harrowing as it seems. Made it a bit through NG++ but i have no reason to finish it again since I just did it for the achieves.

I'm playing at minimal levels and started with a Deprived characters. I level up as few times as possible and mostly only increase my endurance to increase equip loads. I have to double hand most weapons to even consider being able to use them. (Which means no shield). I haven't saved the guy that gives me pyromancy flame, so no Iron Flesh and hax magic spells. My stamina bar is just a tad longer than my HP bar. <___<

Working on a Dirk The Daring playthrough, alongside NG+ on my main. I'll post up the stats and stuff for the Dirk The Daring build once I'm done with it.

I'm debating either going with a ranger idea, a Solaire mold using the BB method like I discussed with D the other day, or I may go mega brawler and carry a massive greatsword and go straight up physical brawlfest when AotA hits and I has it.

You can go punch things if you get enough dragon scales for the Path of the Dragon covenant. I'd like to see how that'd go, personally.

Bump, because new content was recently added for consolebros.

So, currently have three characters on PC. One's going for Path of the Dragon covenant, other is gonna be Forest Hunter that focuses on DEX/FAI and last one is INT character.

Don't have final builds yet and playing all three simultaneously so this will take a while. Also, I'm installing a mod that turns Elite Knight Armor set into this:

Looks pretty awesome, ngl.

Anyway, I got the DLC, but I can't access it since I'm trying to kill the Four Kings so I can see Kaathe to discover the Darkwraiths. Half-tempted just to jump into the hole that Fraamp went down when I hit him and just place the Lordvessel.

Good eye, though it still gets the point across :v

Also, Blighttown is a horrifying place filled with horrible people.

The scariest part of Blighttown is the huge framerate drops. Doesn't help at all. Hardest area in the entire game since it is a pain to navigate.

Better equipment doesn't change the fact that Blighttown is stupid.

No you didn't. You whined about it for like two days straight and I just laughed at you for not picking the skeleton key. On my NG+ or NG++ play I skipped like all of Blighttown and just took the backdoor in. Never fought Gaping Dragon on that play since I didn't need to. Made life much easier.
