tfw typed out several builds with huge descriptions/justifications but accidentally deleted the tab

going to kms

doing a tl;dr version, just ask questions if you want more details

pure pyro: pick pyro and gimp vigand endurance until you can get: 30 attunement, 40 intelligence, and 40 faith

quality pyro: pick pyro then gimp vig and endurance until you get 25 str, 25 dex, 30 fai, 30 int.

good build for omnicasters, but miracles and sorceries will be vastly weaker than pyromancies, so use the other schools of magic for their utilities such as healing

An EXTREMELY fun, but EXTREMELY difficult build to use is something like what PvPSkillz shows here in this video around 17:34: youtube.com/watch?v=12CM5GEXOFw&t=2s

The mixups are fun and limitless, and that build is extremely satisfying to play.

but miracles and sorceries will be vastly weaker than pyromancies
At 40 INT + 40 FAI, Crystal Chime is the second most powerful sorcery and miracle catalyst in the game.

The only problem will be that the highest-damaging spells (CSS, White Dragon Breath, Sunlight Spear) require 45+ of the stat. Still have access to plenty of decent spells though.

what level should i be for ng+ invasions and pvp? it seems as though as soon as i go above sl80 everything dries up. what ng/location should i be sl125?

farquit
farquit

You should only free aim unlocked when doing the WA beam as with the MLGS R2s. For some reason when locked on it aims downward and only the legs of players right in front of you.

If you want to do NG+ pvp anywhere from 100 to 120 is fine for arena and RSS duels. If you want to do invasions don't go beyond 80 unless you want to do exclusively Painted World, Grand Archives or post-Pontiff invasions.

why isn't dark sword up there? it's still the best SS and R1 machine

SniperGod
SniperGod

Add bosses that can attack multiple targets at once without turning their back to another.

Dark souls AI is (probably) coded very similar to Armored Core AI, where it basically tries to maintain a fixed distance and then has constant turn tracking to face whatever target is in front of it, then switch target priority based on whomever is closer.

A lot of boss problems would mostly be solved by giving them wide sweeping attacks whenever someone got behind them, as well as giving them more attacks that hit multiple times /wider areas to deal with multiple people.

Dark Sword is not top-tier still for many a reason:

Slightly more stamina consumption compared to standard straight swords
AR nerfs gives it slightly less AR than a Broadsword at 40/40 and the Sunlight Straight Sword at 40/40/16
terrible R2s that aren't godlike Straight Sword pokes
also a terrible WA that isn't Stance

It still has respectable AR and the third longest straight sword range but it doesn't have enough going for it otherwise to move it to top. Anyone who says the Dark Sword is that OP now needs to stop repeating launch release memes.

takes2long
takes2long

does that mean 40/40/16 battery is at least partially-eligible for top-tier?

or does the lack of a combat-usable weaponart kinda make it suck?

hairygrape
hairygrape

I feel like there's an overwhelmingly dense population of high tier weapons solely because the meta isn't very well defined yet, so there's not much distinction between 'situationally high tier' and actually high tier.

DS2 had a lot of high tier weapons until later versions when it was realized that counter modifiers were actually a lot more abusable than poise for trading, so hammers took a nosedive in their usefulness.

Carnalpleasure
Carnalpleasure

Why do you want to make it more challenging?Isn't the point of co-op helping the player beat a boss he keeps dying too? If it just became harder most of the people wouldn't bother using humanity and summoning help. On the other hand it would be more fun for players that already beat that boss.

Inmate

The SSS needing slightly more stats then the standard quality build without really benefiting from that FAI otherwise makes it lower, and the WA does lower it as well especially since its affects are nerfed in PvP. Straight Sword Stance is absolutely amazing and any SS that lacks it is worse for it.

For me there's a lot of high-tier weapons because there's a huge amount of weapons in 3 currently that are terrific with the only thing separating them from others in their class being a few minor stats like AR, range, speed and rarely moveset.

DS2 had a lot of high tier weapons until later versions when it was realized that counter modifiers were actually a lot more abusable than poise for trading, so hammers took a nosedive in their usefulness.

The problem is there is nothing similar in 3 due to the relative lack of depth. The 'meta' in 3 for lack of a better term is punishing whiffs with your own attack and trading blows with HA weapons until one side runs out of patience being a passive asshole. Counter modifiers played a big part in 2 but there's nothing to add to 3s mechanics beyond the still very simplistic HA system that needlessly obfuscates a lot of numbers.

Put Great Scythe lower

it blows solely because it's a piece of shit compared to every other one

whereismyname

40 strength by the look of it, though it might have the same moveset as the Greatsword, but I don't remember.

5mileys
5mileys

There's only a 20 AR difference between it and the Corvian on a 40/40 Refined plus a slight loss of range, it's not that much worse despite being made obsolete by it.

TreeEater
TreeEater

That's the thing though. Pontiff reaches near its AR with only ONE stat investment, and Corvian totally invalidates it.

Burnblaze
Burnblaze

Cute!

Evilember
Evilember

I agree on both those points but it doesn't make the Great Scythe on its own worse. It still has all the benefits of the basic Reaper moveset post buffs with acceptable AR. It's literally just a 'slightly' worse Corvian so I'm fine where it is.

Illusionz
Illusionz

Scythe guy who posted in the last thread here.

Great Scythe is KILL YOURSELF tier because it has no advantages over any other scythe at all. It's not a BAD weapon, there's just no reason to use it. Throwing it in shit tier would be retarded because it's not shit, just worse than every other scythe.

So has anyone got an idea on how Zullie started swapping character/NPC animations? I've been digging around trying to see how the animations are called but every time I try to have an animation override it just swaps back to the one it was doing and keeps on doing that.

No one will even know what I am talking about or how to begin most likely, but it's better than asking on the CE forums

If only zullie was still here...

either the knight shield or he's trying to locate the bkh knight in darkroot
in ds1 it was possible. assuming it works similarly, you can switch hold pose to a spear, but the hand will move towards the grip for any attack. what you want is to switch a 2h attack of the sword to a 2h attack of a spear. in ds1 you couldn't change individual moves, it was either the whole moveset (or if the weapon you're mimicking had some special/unique moves, just those moves). you could for example do a pretty decent job halfswording in ds1 if you changed the special moveset of a gs to sk spear

That's not the reason I dumpstered them. They were all massively outclassed by nearly every weapon type.
They lacked any way to be aggressive with their awful running attacks.
They had poor range and no "hyper armor". You had to constantly be in someone's face which was exploitable.
The best way to use a hammer was to turtle and use the Craftsman Hammer's 1hr1s with some extra 1hr2 roll catches.
When you did that, you just had a poor straight sword.

can summon two white phantom bodyguards
guaranteed to have a blueberry appear
can get a third white if you're willing to finger, maybe even a second or third blue if you camp hard enough
all of your allies can heal with their seven estus flasks
all of your allies can use the full arsenal of tools available to the player
all of your allies can equip rings to hide their status and make it even more difficult to single out and kill the host

Man, it's STILL too hard! I wish there was a way for me to literally turn every enemy in my game in to a threat too!

I can't help but notice that you're glossing over the fact that most invaders will be optimized for wherever they're invading and they'll have builds meant to kill people, which also probably means 7 sips at +10.

Invaders, as a rule, are cheesy faggots looking to ruin someone's game. The only difference here is that it's your fun getting ruined instead, and that's if you even invade at a high enough SL to make truly dangerous phantoms a likelihood.

Giant's Seeds huh?
Almost all the raids I've done with them I mean the host using them I just black crystal out 'cos it's usually a fucking ganksquad that appears and I've only had one instance where it wasn't.

StonedTime
StonedTime

so you're basically saying that the only way to tip back the scale as an invader is to twink? so that low level invasions almost exclusively end with the host getting curbstomped while high level invasions almost exclusively end with the invader getting memed? and that system is ok in your opinion, doesn't need tweaking or anything.

RavySnake

Most invaders will have to min/max because that's literally the only way they can compete with the insufferable mountain of bullshit they need to get through to actually kill the host. Fuck off.

so you're basically saying that the only way to tip back the scale as an invader is to twink?

No, I'm saying that invaders optimize for the areas they invade and always have. People even went as far as smurfing back in DeS. Twink implies low level.

Most invaders will have to min/max

Most invaders min/max in every game in this series and if you're full of shit if you think it's a recent phenomenon.

Lunatick

Nah, that is too OP, and an invader should be able to take on a host and one phantom legit. It's when you have a full gank squad that enemies should only be on the invader's side.

TreeEater
TreeEater

optimize for the areas they invade
right, they can spend their levels more accurately, since the build is finished. meaning they can get a few extra levels in vigor. hey, with both life+3 AND fap+2 could mean almost ONE HUNDRED EXTRA HP! you're right, i see that now. in fact, seeds SHOULD be removed but keep the effect constantly on. we wouldn't want anything other than twinks to actually stand a chance, ever, would we?
they don't HAVE to try r1 spam stunlock the invader while bullet-helling him with magic. they can avoid hitting each other

If you'd put as much effort into the game as you do into being a condescending cunt then you might have a better time in your invasions.

Invaders are still very dangerous at high levels (around Irithyll I often start to see cookie cutter OSOK greatweapon + caestus builds) and it seems like you have to draw up some nightmare scenario to make it seem otherwise.

It is, the CCS and the sellsword twinblades are very nice models. The mail breaker is also nice but your character holds it upside-down and cuts with the spine.

Have you ever invaded under SL 40 or so? It's pretty much impossible to lose and winning an invasion at those levels has never been something to brag about, compared to invading 50-70 (the closest thing to "fair" invasions for both sides) or at meta levels where winning means you just found a duelfag or actually stood up against a true gank and came out on top.
In fact, outside meta levels, you can find plenty of decent and easy invasions at dungeon, ADP, castle and even archives.

And if you do twink, nearly everyone at low SLs has half your HP unembered and you can usually have more HP than even the host.
You can even abuse areas like farron swamp for bigger advantages.

Okay, so quick summary of how all this works.
Player Model NPCs have an entry in the CharInitParam that tells them what their equipment, stats, and other things are. Among their entry in the CharInitParam, there's an ID that leads on to an entry in the FaceParam, which is where their face data is stored, obviously.

The thing is, the ONLY NPCs that use the CharInitParam, and by extension the FaceParam, are NPCs who use the same model as the player, IE "Player Model NPCs". So when the game tries to get to the Face Param for an NPC that is not a Player Model NPC, it's not really pointing at anything.

The method I used for forcibly playing animations is something I found by taking the SpStayControl from DaS1 Debug and finding it again in DaS3. There's a whole lot you can do in DaS3 just by assuming they left it in from DaS1.

I've said this multiple times in the past in these threads in these sorts of conversations, but really the only thing that bothers me in the game is the seed of the giant tree. Honestly I wouldn't really have a problem with the rest of the system if that was removed, because I don't mind taking on a gank as long as they're actually trying to progress through the level and I can use mobs to my advantage to even the odds.

Because I'm not there for rewards. I don't need embers, I don't need tongues or sunlight medals. I'm there to fuck people up, to stop their forward progress for as long as possible. To kill them if I can, but as long as I could ambush a gank through every important mob in the level and they eventually got to the boss after all that, I'd be satisfied.

All that said, with current conditions, yeah SL60 and below invasions are the best. Twinks really do help balance things out, I'm also very thankful that the ember heal glitch exists and most people don't know about it. Honestly with a good build with high survivability/damage output, hornet parrying being the most common, it really isn't that bad dealing with ganks in low to mid level invasions. Even blues are often just free 2 estus. Mostly just gotta be willing to run away when the situation calls for it, heal up, then come back in and fuck people up. Plenty of gank spank invasions I still have more than half my estus left.

Yeah, there are two methods I've used for the timestop. The simple one uses some speed values I found a long while back, one affecting all characters and one affecting just the player, so you "freeze" them by setting all characters to 0.0001 and the player to 10000, effectively leaving your speed at 1 since they multiply together. The other variant uses a flag for "No Update", which freezes the affected character directly, but you have to find it per each character you'd want to affect.

So, using the No Update method, you would just freeze Sulyvahn specifically and leave everyone else unchanged.

SniperGod

Zullie you're a beast.

I figured that the facedata was exactly how you said it was but I thought it would have been funny to try (which it definitely was)

In regards to the animation, this is actually very helpful. I found out last night talking with someone that the idle animation I was looking for (ie the "last animation used") was ACTUALLY -1 when I was searching for just 0.

<3

Assuming what zullie has shared with me, it would be as easy as changing the animations right when you set the game speed to 0.

I'm there to fuck people up, to stop their forward progress for as long as possible.

Yeah, that kind of thinking is probably why From implemented the seed in the first place. Invaders running into mobs like pussy bitches to avoid combat isn't fun for anyone. It's not fun for the invader, it's not fun for the host and it's not fun for the phantoms either.

So for that reason the seed is good because if an invader is going to be a pussy bitch, they're getting seeded.

Well, the other option would obviously be to find the Stand's speed modifier and set it to 10000 along with the player's. Then everything other than the player and the Stand would be affected.

It would be relatively easy for them to implement this too, given that bows are fucking useless one handed. Just make a bow with a onehanded curved sword moveset, that switches to a bow when 2-handed.

It is user, just because it's not early DeS bullying or 1hko ing parish nerds, doesn't mean they aren't pathetically easy.
Hosts and non downscaled phantoms could have seed, chain, raw ass, regen, obscuring and so on, but if you actually invade at those SLs you'll see how rare that is.
You could argue the effort to get those items from the invader takes skill, but you can ask faggots anywhere to drop everything but estus for you and carry your ass through bosses, so it's kind of a moot point
If you lose an invasion at those SLs, you either got counter twinked(as someone who twinks and counter twinks at the SL, it's very, very rare) or you fucked up and played like an idiot.

You are always preying on players being very new or ignorant, which they are way too often at the SL, so winning those is nothing like the average invasions of irithyll and beyond or the true ganking experience

Lunatick
Lunatick

I'd take either but honestly it's a moot point anyways, the shit will never get fixed so as such I have no qualms about using the most OP build I can with whatever advantages I can get my hands on as an invader.

I don't think you understand. As an invader, I'm not looking for professional gank squads or counter-twinking hosts that just run away forever and occasionally turn-and-burn with their SS or GS, I'm looking for hosts and co-opers actually trying to play the fucking game and get to the boss. As far as I'm concerned, I'm just another mob trying to fuck their shit up as best I can.

This isn't a competitive fighting game like street fighter or some shit. It's about doing what's fun not "bragging", especially when the system is so unbalanced. both lone host scrubs and pro gank squads exist at low as well as mid levels. Invasions are not honor duels. I'm not here to have a fair fight, I'm here to hit below the belt and donkey punch you and your gang, I'm here to jump you when you're distracted.

There would be no point in invading in the first place if all it would involve is honor duels except instead of 1v1 no chugging it's 1v4 summoner class with twice the chugging and resummoned phantoms getting all their estus back. No one would play that.

That's got nothing to do with what I meant. Invasions are not fair at all.
Sub 40 invasions heavily benefit twinks, which are the only invaders around the SL left. There's nothing worth discussing about them except strategies, which everyone already knows given how often they're repeated. Discussong those is like discussing ganking. You are free to do either, since the games allow those, but losing as either means you're pretty bad and winning is a hollow skilless victory. Of course, there's no harm if people have fun doing it, but no one really cares about whatever one does as a twink.

Contrast this with mid SL invasions which I called "fair", on the sense that everyone has different advantages but neither side is likely to have them maxed to win effortlessly, meaning more fun stuff can happen. Or meta SL gank spanks, where victory is very unlikely and are painful to do, but if you do win, then you probably have a very interesting story to show and you wrecked 3 faggots or more who deserved everything that happened to them.
Those are the worthy moments, talking about beating up people at low SLs is like talking about how you ganked a guy so badly he disconnected.

Honestly I'd say mid level invasions are even easier because you actually have the stats to use something like yhorm's to one-shot even hosts from full health. Something you generally don't have the stats to do at around SL35 +4.

I'd also say +4 invasions are more fun because due to how 7 estus makes a much bigger difference down there (even though even in crux woods a host can have up to 9 if they went to cathedral but didn't kill the abyss watchers, more if they just left crystal sage alive and beat the rest of the game with the dancer skip) and how a lot more weapons and builds are viable down there. When you get into mid level territory you're pretty much forced into hornet parries and spin2win or losing. The only real difference is you can take a lot fewer hits once you hit midranges, everyone has hornet ring when they riposte you, and the host has a lot more estus to heal with. Of course like I said it also allows you to easily beat everyone with a yhorms hornet riposte build, if you call that "more skillful" then okay I guess.

His DS2 shilling was cringy and blatant but if you buy into endorsements of eceleb trash you're a retard and can only blame yourself when you get burned. None of them are "bros", they're there to make money. Very few actually care about the Souls franchise other than as a potential to generate income and efame.

That said, very few of them actually do harm to the overall community so getting mad over them is pointless and dumb, a bit like internet sjws who are looking for reasons to be outraged over something.

Hilary campaigned for 64 million votes who were guaranteed to already vote for her. Trump campaigned for the 84,000 swing votes that decided the election.

It was a case of having a huge amount of support for her directed at the completely wrong direction. Why? Because in most elections, having a 2-3% lead = guaranteed win in that state. So she didn't campaign in states with that lead (Pennslyvania, Wisconsin, Michigan), which are traditionally democrat states and were in her favor.

In prior elections, undecided voters usually split 50/50, but in this election there was a Bradley Effect. This is where people who support a candidate list themselves as undecided because of the candidate's controversy, scandals, etc.

So if there's 10% undecided voters, and because of the Bradley Effect, it's actually 60/40 in favor of trump, a "guaranteed win" of 2-3% switches over to a loss. Hilary's campaign assumed that the more scandals trump had, the more undecided voters would vote AGAINST him, not for him.

So looking at those 84k voters in michigan, wisconsin, and pennslyvania:
while national unemployment was low, they are still in double digit unemployment in their areas
they are not college educated, primarily white males
they are too old to go back to college and start new careers
their jobs were lost because of automation and globalization

So all Trump had to do was say something that those 84k would love to hear, but the 64 million who voted for Hilary would hate. "We're going to close our borders economically and bring your jobs back, even if it means slowing down the rest of the economy and raising prices 10-20%"

Trump ran on that platform, Hilary didn't stop him, and so those 84k voted for him. That was enough to swing the election, it has nothing to do with punditry or the candidates themselves. It's entirely a game of campaigning and strategy.

Well I'm still in initial testing of it but it adds another dimension to gameplay (I normally never kick because you have to do that gay push forward + R1 at the exact same time thing), something novel I've never really done before, so it's very fun at least to do something new.

My policy with it right now is as long as it allows me to 1-kick guardbreak medium shields, I'll keep using it. Otherwise I'll switch back to knight slayer's and R1 spam into people's shields instead.

Okay, so how this works is, the difference between the Drakes and the Flying Drakes is the exact same as the difference between, say, a Black Knight with a Halberd and a Black Knight with a Greataxe. That is to say, it's handled by Animation Offsets.

Animation Offsets are basically like a filter that the game puts animation IDs through before telling the model what to do. So, for instance, every Black Knight variant will do a different attack animation if you tell them to use the 3000 animation, because what they'll actually end up doing will be using 3000, 13000, 23000, or 33000 based on what Animation Offset is being added to it.

With Drakes, they actually have 3 sets of animations. The "standard" Drakes use the animations at an offset of 10000. The Flying Drakes use the animations at an offset of 20000, so all you need to do in order to control a Flying Drake is tell them to use the 20000 Animation Offset. This can be done in their NPC Param entry, or directly to the entity in question through some special effects, such as 5402 (For reference, 5400, 5401, and 5403 are also Animation Offset SpEffects).

You can see how the animation IDs change with and without the SpEffect applied as I move the Drake around.

Its just that because if their erratic jumping and running around, fighting more than one can quickly become a shitfest if you get unlucky and bite spam is coming in from multiple angles.

It also doesn't help that the dogs' low hitboxes sometimes can dodge normal weapon swings even when locked on.

They're not a difficult enemy at all, but if things DO go wrong with them, its always a fucking shitshow.

Hi /dsg/.

So I've decided to get SotFS for PS4 as a Christmas gift for myself. I'm very well familiar with the series and its inherent mechanics, but as things change game to game and I'm currently most used to the systems in DS3, what should I anticipate to be different going back in the series? Larger mechanics I understand, but I would appreciate any generalized info on softcaps, scaling, how stats operate differently, poise etc.

STR is about the playstyle, not what you need to invest into to get the AR, that's what you guys don't get.
If they made a curved sword or katana with A in STR, I'd still call them DEX weapons, because how one would play with them, or with chaos blade, for instance, wouldn't change at all.
A STR spear with HA WA has none of the qualities that make strength weapons what they are, slower but uninterruptable attacks.

In the other games, when you invade a good player, it's an excitong experience because he can give you a run for your money even with mobs to help. In 3 they'll make the experience as long and boring as possible, forcing you to rollcatch 30 times or so

If you've got almost a year of invasions in then you're probably at over 1000 hours and yeah you should probably play something else, nothing wrong with that.

I've got almost 600 hours in atm and it's not old to me, where probablly 100 of those hours are PvE, 200 were mostly pontiff duels and a little arena, and the rest are invasions. I mean I wouldn't exactly call 300 hours "really fast" but to each their own I guess.

I guess my main point at the end of the day is that it seems like there are a lot of people who try to rain on other people's parade and go into this and other game generals and essentially try to get people to quit. I enjoy shitposting here just like anyone else but you're not gonna stop me personally from still loving invasions in DaS3, mainly at SL35 +4 and SL55 +6

And yeah they were guardpumping up there and everything, it was earlier though so I couldn't fit it in that webm or it'd be too long. The phantom had the great club and the host looked like he had a millwood greatbow too, they were all ready for me up there lmao.

Also it's tough because I really had to watch the host and make sure he wasn't moving before I took the shot. I knew if I shot and missed they would be on their guard and probably leave, so I only had the one chance. Happy it worked out though.

Pressing up did nothing, pressing down made he stop flying and walk backwards as you see in the webm, when I override the animation, up and down do nothing.

Yeah, you generally only get one shot on that bridge. Readying a second arrow takes about as long as it takes for the other person to sprint to the other side.

I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think it does. I only use it for the silent footsteps and silent rolling, which is good enough for me. Once they hear your arrow it should be too late for them anyway, or you should be too far away from them to be able to hear it to begin with.

Dilapidation is interesting because its foreign to us, Souls and Stalker do it well. Demon's is actually a good answer but maybe there could be a more modern take. Bloodborne leaves the medieval setting and that too has some decay because Yharnam is messy through multiple hunts. I think it would be cool to see the age of fire in action, general lore hypes it up as a wonderful time so I just want to be shown rather than told.

This may kills the isolated feel of souls, bordering into a different game all together, probably elder scrolls. Think of a functioning society with working politics and armies with the souls scale.

I could get behind that.
Ideally we could have something like a not-Berserk where there are demons and so on, but there would also be plenty of action grounded in a setting like wars and/or espionage berween human factions so you could have Souls style gameplay but the setting wouldn't be entirely based on just fighting zombies/demons.

I find Lothric really interesting, because of the 3 'main' kingdoms in the games, to me it feels like one of the most... I don't know, focused? Developed? The thing about Drangleic and Lordran is that they're made up of a bunch of other little lands and shit all in the same spot, and we know about their history and a bunch of shit that happened there, but we don't really know stuff like, say, day to day life in Anor Londo. Whereas with Lothric we get to learn quite a good deal about it as a culture/place and not just a stage for events.

I'd love a Dark Souls (style) game with more RPG elements, and one set in a setting's peak rather than its downfall would be fun. Not something where they go completely overboard and make a big old Elder Scrolls style world that's expansive but feels really dead, but a game with the limited, interconnected world of Dark Souls but stuff like covenants and factions that are way more fleshed out and have quest lines, and NPCs who you can interact with way more beyond running into them in a few locations and buying shit from them.

Or a cartoon/anime set in a more prosperous time? Pwetty pwease ?
Feels bad when you have loads of fanwank ideas for Dark Souls stories and lore you'd love to put in the form of comics or animations, but you can't draw for shit and you know that no one could be bothered to read pages upon pages of your purely text based Dark Souls fanfiction.

You'd be surprised. If it's well written, throw in a little smut or romance in general, and people will love it. I would.

Agreed a whole lot with Lothric. It feels like a proper and "whole" location even though it's the most jumbled mess of a land according to the lore.

In Dark Souls 2 it was weird having shit like Heide being kind of like it's own self-contained little bubble, same with Lost Bastille and Earthen Peak. A lot of stuff got cut when the scope of Dark Souls 2 was scaled back but a lot of the areas in DS2 felt like they would've been better if they were more consistent with the areas they connected to or were clearly their own separate things like the DLCs were.

Lordran is still pretty cool though.

I took 8 hours on my first run so I did enjoy the DLC.

Also the mileage you get from the arena is pretty high.
I played the entire dlc offline and I have never used the arena but don't pretsnd like the hours spent on arena aren't part of the content.

The PS4 experience is hacker free at least.
Theoretically you could hack on the PS3 like that video where a guy was running in darkroot and deleveling guys but it is so infrequent it might as well not be a thing.

Jup, that's exactly what I'm implying. No hackers on PS4.

Apparently hacking is ''easily'' doable on ps3/xbox360, but in literally multiple thousands of hours of DeS/DaSI/DaSII I have never encountered a single one.

First 1,5 hours were on my low sl character and I tried to bruteforce my way through and got reked.

Then I brought my main and explored the shit out of the dlc,cut the bridge, killed the Champion,progressed normally and then got stuck in the second tree you have to fell in Snowy mountain ass,ran laps around the dlc trying to find a solution. Then I found the way to progress, beat my head and dick on Friede for a while, finished her, found a hidden door, went down,fought the pyro guy, then heard of a third boss in the dlc, went through the areas again multiple times, tried to find the way to the secret slab you get in the dlc and evenrually I gave up and came to ask where the third boss of the dlc was and got told there is third boss.

>throw in a little smut or romance in general
I'm probably too autistic to pull of a good romance subplot but I've written smut for /tg/ before

I've written smut for this thread before
people asked for more

Lordran was less of a kingdom and more of a region. There was no 'king of Lordran,' it was basically the Dark Souls cradle of civilisation: a bunch of ancient city states all in close proximity to each other. So, we got to learn a little bit about each one, but of course a lot of the game's lore had to be dedicated to setting up the metaphysics of the series.

Then in Dark Souls 2, while Drangleic is a kingdom, you've got the ruins of all the other kingdoms that were once on the same spot like Brume and Shulva, and you kind of explore all their history too.

In Dark Souls 3 though, Lothric is very much a stand alone kingdom. There's a bunch of other shit in the same location, sure, either because it's always been there and fell to ruin or because it got pulled there by the first flame, but most of the world building is focused on Lothric: and by that I actually the civilisation of Lothric as shown off by the High Wall and Castle, not the game world as a whole.

Four Knights are kind of disappointing to me. Ornstein is the only knight we fight even close to their prime. Artorias is all Abyss corrupted and he's missing his shield so he's become a dexfag. Then the other two members of the four 'knights' are a shitty assassin and an archer in barbarian clothes. Gough's fucking great in AotA as a character, but I wish he and Ciaran had some nice shiny full plate armour. Ciaran suffers from a problem that From has repeated with Yuria, where they've made someone who's meant to be really powerful a generic human model NPC and they come across as really underwhelming compared to other members of their group.

Look man you either write the fucking thing or not. Don't be a faggot.
If you want extra peons to grovel at your feet, make it a dynamic adventure story in the setting with an OC and a bit of(or zero) plot armor. Once you have smut in, upload to hentai-foundry and let fans comment/critique to give direction to the story if you're out of ideas. Or just let them read what you have planned. They love that shit, those little degenerates.

There's a second illusion wall in the fly pit room with two crystal lizards. From there you take the other door and jump down some branches until you reach the arena looking area.

there was no king of Lordran
Yes there was, Gwyn.
The picture of my post shows Lordran
It's clearly like a huge walled-off city state.
Lordran is basically a fantasy Rome analogue and Anor Londo is the Vatican.

Countries like Thorolund, Carim, Balder and so on exist outside of the walls somewhere. The only time we're outside of Lordran(and not in a Painted World) in Dark Souls 1 is before we leave the Asylum (or go back to it) which means that Lordran is probably far away since we only see a huge ass mountain range from the asylum but still within the flight range of the huge ass crow.

Gwyn was the king of the world/whatever the fuck he wanted. He was the chief god. He's never explicitly refered to as the 'King of Lordran.' Your picture shows early concept art of Anor Londo that is clearly very different from the city as it appears in game, not Lordran as a whole. Lordran includes/included the city states of Anor Londo, New Londo, Oolacile and Izalith, as well as historical/religious sites like Nito's domain and the Kiln of the First Flame, plus some shitty human settlements like the Burg. Lordran is never refered to as a single country or political entity, and is probably the name of the region.

It might just be me but I don't watch Lobos for his "content". I just really like the guy, seems like a super swell dude.
But his 1st runs of games are usually pretty fun, stay away from the stuff where his brother plays, he's slightly autistic.

Gwynewere is straight up referred to as the Princess, though.

Anor Londo was like a part of the citystate only the best of the best can enter,much like the vatican. The lore of the oolacile arena states that you could earn the ticket to AL by fighting in the arena.

It's in the intro of the release version d00d.
Yes but it clearly does not show Anor Londo as it is in game. You're not blind are you, user? Remember how they reused a whole bunch of concept art for the Demon Souls opening cinematic? I imagine that' the case here, too.

Gwynewere is straight up referred to as the Princess, though.
She is refered to as a Princess, yes. But I don't think she's ever refered to as the 'Princess of Lordran.'

"To the land of the ancient lords, Lordran"
A 'land' is not a defined political entity dude
The land of Europe
The land of America
The land of Asia

Directly below the Burg p.much
Yes, and?
You do realise New Londo had its own kings and knights, right?

Like a suburb to Anor Londo.
It was a city state. It had its own royal family.

The lore of the oolacile arena states that you could earn the ticket to AL by fighting in the arena.
Where? I like the idea that the arena was for training up Silver Knights but I don't recall anything saying that only those who competed in the arena could earn entrance to Anor Londo.

This Lordran = Rome/Anor Londo = Vatican City thing isn't really accurate, my man. It's more that Lordran = Mesopotamia, Anor Londo = Sumer or Akkad or something.

Not the user you were talking to, but
Gwynevere is referred as Princess, sure but Princess of Sunlight, which only implies her relation to Gwyn, Lord of Sunlight.
Also pic related for arena lore.

Oh hey, there we go. Well that's an item description I'd never caught before. I didn't doubt that Oolacile was subservient to Anor Londo but I hadn't really realised that it basically served as a glorified gate house. Maybe Sen's Fortress was built on the ruins of the township, considering the caved in tunnel that presumably leads to Anor Londo that you find there?

Crazy_Nice
Crazy_Nice

Oolacile is never referred as kingdom anywhere, all you get is a land of oolacile, so it's safe to assume they were bitchbois to anor londo

Even if it wasn't a kingdom it had a royal family or (slightly) independent rulership of some sort. Dusk is its Princess, after all.
