This is pure headcanon, of course, but I like to think his name was "Gwyndolin". Hear me out. Say Gwyn named his firstborn that, and after he struck him from history, the Gwyndolin we know was born, and Gwyn basically decided to try again, but to get it right this time. There was never a "first" or "second" Gwyndolin, there was only ever the one, dammit!

Honestly I'm fully expecting ringed city to be a progenial city, a very important historical place as opposed to something like courland or londor.

I'm thinking it would be a place so important that it's namesake would be carried forward when they migrated.

Gwyn named his new kingdom "sun londo" after his achievement

The human immigrants named their city "new londo"

New londo may have even come before anor londo, before gwyn kicked humans back down into the ringed city

So do you guys think Yorshka is the Firstborn's daughter and that he was a dirty dragonfucker? It'd make sense. Consider the following:
Firstborn changes sides and gets exiled
Gwyn leaves to link the fire
the events of DS1 happen
sometime later, Yorshka is born
Firstborn knows she wouldn't be able to grow up in ADP
goes back to Anor Londo and gives Yorshka to Gwyndolin
he raises her believing she's his sister and not his niece
It'd make sense since she looks half-dragon, and we know Gwyn hated dragons. You could also extrapolate that Priscilla might also be the Firstborn's, and not Seath and Gwynevere's like was originally theorized. Thoughts?

I have no idea what you're referring to then. "Skill" and your reference to the Profaned Flame makes me think Dark Souls 3, and the only Lifehunt in Dark Souls 3 is that miracle. The DaS Lifehunt Scythe can't be buffed, and obviously the miracle can't be buffed, so I don't entirely know where you're going with any of this.

I'm saying that bleed can only be infused using an abyssal flame, which also infuses dark and hollow.

Lifehunt is an inherent part of priscilla's being, its not just tied to her weapon.

Some headcannon here: the gods were deathly afraid of lifehunt, which is an ability that obliterates mortals even when they wield it. The soul is described as the source of all life, so in a sense you could call it Soulhunt. Really makes you think

don't want to get your hopes up, it's still quality dominated garbage

the main difference is that greatswords are what dominate
greatswords got a speed buff that brought them back to pre-nerf DaS1 / DaS2 level speed

hammers also got a massive range boost on r1s and have hyper armor while 2h, very good

pyros mostly use their super long DLC greatsword and pyromancer's parting flame black flame / fire surge
parting flame gives you a small AoE combustion on every close range cast, making black flame OP in damage and poise break

poise has been greatly changed for the better (still only during attacks) and is too complicated to explain in one post
it matters now

I can see this for DaS3 but now you can access the entire painted world from early on, and you can kill Dancer to get to Lothric Castle and Consumed Garden pretty early if you've got the balls.

lifehunt
what is lifedrain

Just because you're a dumb cunt, lifehunt is written with the "ming" character, and lifedrain is written as literally "soul suck", ala DeS.

I guess you could sort of infer it by her tail weapon having an Occult rating? Maybe?

To be honest, I'd have to disagree, and just assume that whatever it is, she doesn't actually use it on you. Priscilla deals less bleed damage to you than the flamberge wielding snake men, for some reason. It's weird and arbitrary.

That, and you don't need Humanity anyways. Humanity always restored HP, but there's no sense in keeping track of it. It's essentially equivalent to the Ashen One sucking out someone's Humanity and consuming it on the spot.

It's a Miracle. It's someone's interpretation of a vision they deemed "divine". It's Aldrich's hallucinatory representation of what he saw, and we all know he loves absorbing HP and FP by his rings. It's already canon that Miracles have different effects when the story is fragmented or interpreted differently or altered.

No, that's a misconception. The original Japanese text calls it "Sen's Old Castle", so there was someone called Sen in the lore. Sen does mean thousand in Japanese, but it's written in katakana which means it's a name.

DS2 DLC's mostly go down in overall quality in line with their release order.

I was made aware at one point that there's a lot from KF lifted straight into 2, not just shulva. I heard Darklurker was a copy-paste from KF, not that I ever would've noticed that.
I don't know, to me it feels like a bit of a cheap way to extend the length of your playthrough. I get the idea though, challenging yourself to clear out as many of those areas as possible like that.

Okay, so, this one only shows a few things more than the PAX footage, mainly what the Stone-humped Hag sells, the stats on the Splitleaf Greatsword/Halberd, and that you can get the Murky Hand Scythe after the long fall. At least it was less frustrating to watch since the guy playing it seemed to know what he was doing.

What I find more annoying is that Rusted Gold Coins are still only obtainable in limited quantities per playthrough. Who thought that should be a thing?

Who thought that should be a thing?

Probably the same guy that thought making titanite slabs limited to a small number of pickups/rewards per playthrough and not farmable anywhere was a good idea.

PackManBrainlure
PackManBrainlure

The difference is that one is a consumable that only affects luck, which may or may not work out anyways (and there are at least three other stackable items that also provide luck that are not consumables). It's pointless to make them limited quantity since you can obtain almost the same result with regular Rusted Coins. Slabs are semi-understandable in that they permanently affect matchmaking when used.

Methnerd
Methnerd

But you can currently obtain 8 (11 with the DLC) slabs per playthrough. Matchmaking is permanently changed after you +10 a single weapon. After that point, what difference does it really make to anyone else if you have 10 titanite slabs or 100?

It just seems like a strange choice because they already give more than enough to cover everything most people would want to use and a end game opportunity to farm them would be a harmless quality of life change that wouldn't upset anything.

Weapon is called a greatsword
Is actually an ultra
BUT with the damage of a greatsword
Splitleaf Greatsword
is actually a Halberd

Why is this allowed

LuckyDusty
LuckyDusty

This is one of the good things about DaS2, at least they tried to somewhat standardize the naming conventions. Ultras are called Ultras, and Greatswords are called Greatswords (which meant changing the names of the BKGS and BKS). Worst case, a generic "Sword" could be applied to either GSes or UGSes (e.g. Lost Sinner's Sword is a UGS, Drangleic Sword is a GS), but that's the worst of it.

How much do you want to bet that had Tanimura not decided that FUGS would be called Fume Ultra (necessitating that it use the same name in DaS3), that Miyazaki would just call it the Fume Greatsword or just plain Fume Sword?

I have discovered something of great import in the Dark Souls universe, because of this video:

Black Blade if you want to be cool without completely gimping yourself, Bloodlust if you hate yourself.

Boy_vs_Girl
Boy_vs_Girl

Black Blade if you're going Quality, Bloodlust if pure Dex. They both have the same effective range. Black Blade is better generally however since it has the highest Katana AR at 40/40 Refined even if it is only slightly above Pole while Bloodlust only reaches damage higher than a 60 Dex Chaos Blade with the self-buff on, and the buff doesn't last long and takes forever to cast while taking self-damage. Black Blade also has the Stance WA which is terrific.

Black Blade is THE hipster katana. It's like wanting to be a hipster and then wearing band tees and hipster glasses. Definitely Bloodlust between those two.

Thinking of picking up ds2 again by restarting a hexer, because I'm a dirty boy. From what I've read, the best hexing stick if I want to just x-buff x-infused weapon through the game is the tree branch, and the best for offensive hexes is the one you get from that hexer guy. Is 30/30 enough for both cases? The furthest I've ever gotten through the game is just past Covetous Demon.

Weapon buffing is based on your elemental attack bonus, so it's the same no matter what catalyst you use. Of greater import is how much innate damage of that element the weapon has prior to buffing, since that gets a bonus from the buff as well. So, if you want the most elemental damage out of a weapon, you get one that innately deals the damage you want, infuse it to the same element (which gets a bonus because of the existing innate damage), and then buff with that same element (which gives it a further bonus also because of existing innate damage).

30/30 Fai/Int is stock standard Hexer, and is the soft-cap for Dark attack bonus in any case. It's also the soft-cap for Pyromancy, which requires 60 total of both. You'll have decent access to Miracles and Sorceries, but those two get a big jump going from 30 to 40, so you won't be nearly as strong as someone who dedicates 40-50 points to either Faith or Int.

The locked door in the pit is opened by a key you get in Black Gulch, if I remember right. It opens up three doors total: the one in the pit in Majula, the poison statue room with Havel's set in the Gutter, and the special door in Black Gulch.

Generally I'd just put it at whatever you feel comfortable with. Personally I think I went with either 26 or 32 Attunement, you get slots at 25 and 30 but also extra casts at 26 and 32, so that extra one or two points is a good investment. After that, invest in Adaptability until you have either 96 or 100 Agility (99 is where you get an extra roll i-frame, but 100 gives an extra backstep frame, so like above the little bit of extra investment is worth it).

You can make up any gaps in your number of casting slots and your casting speed by using Ascetics to get Clear Bluestone +2 and Southern Ritual +2.

Flameblow

made them do it

This is always a weird interpretation to me, in that it defaults to casting Gwyn as this crazy douchebag who bullies his son into being a faggot, when all other evidence shows him as pretty magnanimous, and clearly Gwyndolin adores him as a father because of how he aforementioned is the only one guarding his tomb and upholding the laws of Anor Londo centuries after.

It's entirely possible, and I'd say even probable, that Gwyndolin put on the gril ring, hopped in the metaphorical Things Betwixt sarcophagus, and decided to be a lady because it'd help his moon powers out. It's not like anyone in this universe gives a shit what you wear or what gender you are.

I've been thinking of getting Dark Souls 1 recently. I'm wondering:

Is the Demons Great Hammer worth getting from the Asylum Demon? I was thinking of getting Firebombs for it.

Is Deprived bad for beginners?

In which ways can you customize your character? I kind of wanted a red skinned Daemon guy.

How hard is the game actually? I've played New Vegas and Skyrim as RPGS and found them pretty easy. I've played Doom 4, some Morrowind, TF2, and Dota 2 as well and don't find any of them particularly hard.

Is magic strong or weak in Dark Souls 1?

Is the Demons Great Hammer worth getting from the Asylum Demon?
No
It's too heavy, only very slightly stronger than other great hammers at twice the weight and STR req
You can get the best great hammers early in the game
Is Deprived bad for beginners?
Not at all, it'll teach you not to get hit
In which ways can you customize your character?
Minor body size presets, skin color, hair, etc. Red is easy.
How hard is the game actually?
Not hard. Moderately challenging. Fair but not forgiving. The reputation it gets is just from people bad at video games.
People have beat it with their feet and a fighting game pad, guitar hero controller, DDR pad, their fucking voice, etc
Is magic strong or weak in Dark Souls 1?
It's very strong. It scales with how dumb you look.
What's the difference between Dark and Demon Souls?
Dark Souls has less grinding, has weapon movesets, poise instead of hyper armor, less annoying mechanics in general, harsher equip load.

bosses are not as good as ds3 and the gameplay is not as fluid as ds2, but it has the best atmosphere, music and level design (except demon ruins), weapons have more unique movesets and poise is actually useful, also if you can't fastroll, use rolls conservatively and use shields for what they're worth.

Only reason i'd see to actually get into the arena is the 2v2's or 3v3'(maybe brawl but it just didnt click for me). 1v1 in the arena is mostly thrash with one in a million of meeting some depressed soul trying out a 'fun' build

You don't need the first dlc for arena. The second dlc is adding at least 2 new maps for the arena that can be accessed regardless of whether you have the first dlc.

It was supposed to be the multiplayer aspect of the Chaos Servants covenant. It was a covenant that didn't specify whether the player should do co-op, pvp, or pve, but ranked players according to how successful they were at it anyways.

Claymore and Lothric Knight Sword are rad too. I wish the Claymore and GSoJ didn't have that dumb scabbard on the back. It looks kinda silly, but I love them all the same.

I love Firelink GS a lot for some reason too. It'd get extra points with me if it had some thrusting attacks. Being a pointed coil with no thrusts is dumb.

Winged Knight Twinaxe + offhand OWCS and Pontiff rings for pic related bullshit

Anri's Straight Sword so my Int/Lck and Fth/Lck characters can pretend to be real builds instead of looking like someone clicked the random button in mugen

Immolation Tinder because it does literally everything by itself

holding the stance button makes you twirl it over your head and damage anyone who gets close
using normal or strong attack makes you do a spin attack that gets stronger the more you use it

I'm afraid it's both, senpai.

40int with crystal sage rapier and gold serpent ring, will be a 40int/40lck using man-grub staff after dlc because I hate viability

about halfway through with what's going to be a dex/int hybrid, but will only have 40dex in ng so he's not overleveled for the dlc

going to start a 40str character and a 40dex character here soon, both of which will transition to hollow luck hybrids in ng+

had a pyromancer but deleted it because I wasted slabs on a club of all things, going to make another soon

had a str/vit character that was actually really fun, deleted it after I saw what me from five months ago thought would be good weapons to slab

quality knight
Wolf Knight Greatsword for bonus damage against abyss enemies, Hollowslayer for bonus damage against hollows.

karla actually complains that you never bring her dark sorceries to study, only pyromancy tomes
her shop option is called "buy dark sorceries" even though she only has two and the rest are pyromancies/miracles
she has separate options for giving her pyro tomes and miracle tomes
there are three blank spots in her inventory when other spell merchants have all their bars neatly filled up
her dialogue doesn't change no matter what you give her, implying her questline hasn't ended yet
inb4 she's a sister to yuria and co and together they're the four daughters of the abyss

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if TRC had a scroll with dark orb, dark bead, and dark fog in it or whatever else. Which would also give it the same number of dark spells as miracles have, come to think of it.

Interesting that one of the new spells is a bigger Great Deep Soul, that probably means there'll be a bigger Gnawing, too.

Maybe take a look at the spellbuffs at equal faith int. Iirc at higher levels at least the spell buff is considerably better if the 2 stats are equal. Of course snap freeze might be the reason for that distro.

That's actually a good point. Only reason I have my faith at 18 even is to use the lightweight chime for the Snap Freeze.
I was looking at docs.google.com/document/d/1fPECOPBkoG521DwnBoJzODpINosRaTCv2_-MSnXZ06Q/pub for an idea of my damage to expect. The stats are like that to get as much damage as I can for what little leeway I have on points.Spells are more for zoning, since it will be an invasion build.

Joke's on you user, you knew this would happen but did it anyways.

Blatantly so, yes. His defense against it pretended to plead innocence, in the same sense that a politician pretends to take a stance on something without actually promising to do anything. Text analysis (the same kind used by ambassadors to get away with saying nothing) shows that the only thing he actually said was "I'll try not to get caught next time".

He's got a nice bod and sexy voice, but he's an asshole who uses people for his own gain. Not something you want poking your butthole unless you don't mind getting dumped later for someone else.

In that case, you might want to avoid giving her dark tomes or buying dark spells from her. She goes from clingy to creepy, and eventually goes catatonic which locks you out of buying other spells.

Don't worry, if you do her questline right then Eygon will realize what an utter failure of a knight he is and kill himself out of shame.

Does anyone else think the non-occasional PVP is and always has been shit in these games except for maybe the early days of DS1 and DS2?

I honestly don't know how people have gained followings over it (obnoxious personalities?) and really don't see anything that skillful about it in the long run, except for maybe parrying which honestly isn't that complicated of a mechanic and just depends solely on timing being at least decent and whatever offhand weapon you're using.

Souls PvP is like easymode fighting game pvp. The youtube "personalities" just pretend it's the same thing so they can rake in really, really easy views. It isn't even hard to do, all you gotta do is edit out all your losses and talk about how the guys you beat were so good and doing some kind of clever strategy and say "GG" a lot.

I might do it myself if I ever need more college money for whatever reason.

Some have theorized that there was originally an entirely different boss fight planned for that area, up to and including fighting the Abyss Dragon there. This goes hand-in-hand with the idea that the DLC's development cycle was upended when Bamco required the DLC be split in two.

implying bamco made that decision
Fromsoft originally wanted BB's DLC to be two different pieces, but Sony made them combine it into one because the first one didn't have enough content to qualify as a DLC by Sony's rules.

Note that AoA doesn't have trophies, even though Sony's rules state that all DLCs sold on playstation systems must have trophies. This means Sony doesn't consider it a DLC, more like a weapons and map pack.

I'd say the blame lies on Fromsoft.

Start with Dark souls, if you start with Dark souls 3, it might turns you off from playing the other as they are much more slow and less "friendly" (no warping in the 1st one, slower rolling...) though maybe it will not bother you.
But for the best experience start with 1, then the second one (it's highly despised but play it yourself to have your own opinion on it) and then the third one

If you have a ps4 get Bloodborne, it have some similarities with the Dark Souls formula but it's still very different

Poker_Star
Poker_Star

Depends.
DaS1 will always remain the most iconic for various good reasons and is the natural chronological starting point but is the least-friendly to new players and the most likely to turn you off if your aren't the kind of person that's big on action games, challenge and slowly figuring things out for yourself. Many of its RPG mechanics are obtuse and needlessly complex with no clear explanation. If you have thr patience for it and its your kind of game, then it's the one to start with. Get the Prepare to Die Edition.

DaS3 is conversely the easiest to start with and get into, both in having the most forgiving earlygame difficulty curve and in doing the best job of explaining story and mechanics to the player. It makes some references to the first game that will lack impact without the prior context but is largely a standalone story experience. Get it now and buy the dlc season pass or else wait a minth and a half for The Fire Fades Edition, which will include the dlcs already bundled.

Two is the middle child in every meaning of the word and shouldn't be your introduction to the series. When you're ready to try it, get the Scholar of the First Sin Edition

Just remember the one basic rule user: Resistance in Dark Souls 1 is a dead stat that does effectively nothing for you other than waste your levels
I'd like to add to this: not only does it waste your levels, it also retroactively wastes your levels. The in-game text blurb says it boosts your defense, but it stacks with your total level and your humanity counter, all of which contribute to the same softcap at around 100 or so. You'll get a good defense boost early on, but after level 100 minus whatever you sunk into resistance you aren't getting the bonus effects anymore and your character is weaker overall for it. No, there's no way to respec.

A retarded idea that I don't believe but like to think about is that the pygmy was killed/died and became the bonfire that houses the first flame since in the intro the flame is just a bed of fire. Perhaps the pygmy sacrificed himself to help feed the flame. This would be why Gwyn gave the pygmies a city and his daughter.

Poker_Star

Aldia was not a pretty big plot point, as evidenced by the fact that the game's story and plotline weren't affected before and after he got patched into the game. Adding a new, super vague ending that clearly didn't work doesn't make him important.

I guess I should say he has a lot of potential considering DS2s main story doesn't really go anywhere beyond it doesn't matter what you do.

He's managed to transcend his human existence and exists somehow tied to the bonfire network. His whole schtick as was the new ending was finding a way to break the fore linking cycle which DS3 does in 2 different ways. The londor one is fine but the end of fires method is slightly underwhelming. This whole time we just needed a firekeeper to pick up the first flame? I would've preferred it if the method to break the cycle was a bit more grabd and representative of all the time and effort people like aldia have put into this dilemma.

To be honest, I strongly expect the pygmy to be already long gone and that we'll learn what fate earned its people a city from Gwyn in the dlc. The actual bosses will probably be original characters not terribly related to the whole backstory. The pygmy is probably a character we already knew of and their reveal will be one of those "hiding in plain sight" things.

My guess is that the ringed city does have something important relation to Gwyn's firelinking seeing as how their knights had their fire "sealed."

One presumes that the time and effort Aldia put into it was more about figuring out a way to interrupt the cycle of linking WITHOUT killing literally everyone and causing what is left of reality to finally collapse into nothing.

The End of Fire is essentially euthanasia for the world. No one escapes that alive.
And the Lord of Hollows ending is presumably even WORSE for everyone except the cunts in Londor.

Dark Souls 2 is harder to fuck up than DaS1, so it isn't really a problem. Even if you completely screw your stats and do something stupid like try to raise everything evenly, there's an infusion for that and it's actually pretty strong. And you can respec right from the beginning of the game.

But that's the whole point. The first flame naturally was supposed to fade so an age of dark could take its place. Then something akin to an age of fire would come after that (one day tiny embers will dance across the darkness).

It's all about letting go. Ashes of Ariandel makes this clear and what's not to say that there aren't sentient creatures who would arise and thrive in an age of dark? See the fact that artorias made a pact with creatures from the abyss and the insects we see in the paintings rot and the ringed city.

+20% bonus damage, prevents reanimation. Very useful.

Start as sorcerer, raise Vigor, Attunement, and Intelligence evenly. Stop Attunement at 30 and stop Vigor at 40, don't stop Intelligence until 60. Any spare points go into Str/Dex to use whatever weapon you want and all else into Endurance since spells cost so much stamina.

No really, DaS2's engine is way more powerful and efficient than DaS2 even needs from it. It's actually too overdesigned if anything. They outsourced its construction to some third party coding company to save development time and got some serious quality work back for it, which of course they didn't fucking use for the next two games.

Don't focus overtly on spellcasting, especially earlygame. Spells take a long time to "get going."
Grab around 2 att slots for a basic ranged projectile and whatever else and then mix dex and int together the same way a quality build would mix str and dex. Focus on weapons with int synergy like sage rapier, heysel pick and gsoj.

Lategame, make int and att your prority over dex and be sure to use the damage boosting gear together to maximize your spell efficiency (candlestick, crown, both rings). 24-30 att is ideal

Are you retarded? Did you play DS3?
What else does the FK do besides letting you level? Plus just staying in the shrine instead of a fucking crypt you have 0 reason to visit already gives it more meaning by default.

Even if curing hollowing is still kept behind 20k souls it would make the betrayal ending a lot more interesting.

It's actually too overdesigned if anything.

It's the truth. Its shaders were too powerful for the consoles at the time to handle. That's why they gutted the whole darkness mechanic in DS2.

pilgrims leave londor to get as close to the "divine flame" as possible so they can finally die, according to Yoel
line of dead pilgrims goes from before Vordt's boss room, extends down to the broken bridge where Yoel is, and one more on the broken bridge between that and high wall where the dead hellkite is
according to some item description somewhere, that all used to be one continuous bridge leading from undead settlement up to lothric castle, but it broke and sank into the ground for unknown reasons
there's a londor miracle given to pilgrims found in farron swamp alongside a gem that normally only comes from londor, so that pilgrim either fell off from the bridge above or was trying to get up there from below
all the darkwraiths running around Farron Keep would suggest the area has some relation to the abyss much like Darkroot did
the first part of TRC is littered with dead pilgrims trying to leave it, strongly suggesting this is the point of origin for pilgrims before they make their way to lothric castle

I'm gonna go out on a limb and assume TRC is, in fact, Londor.

Let me rephrase the question since you're apparently not getting it.

What does Firekeeper Irina allows you to do outside of letting you level, you idiot? How is that different from the regular Firekeeper? And how does that make it any better?

Wanting the Firekeeper away as something that would improve the game while on the same breath praising Irina as something that would be actually meaningful when she actually serves LESS of a purpose in her Firekeeper state is nonsensical

And darkroot was right next to the abyss, if it being oolacile in the past is any indication.

Welp, there you go, then. TRC is probably Londor. Or, if it isn't Londor itself, it's ancient history pre-Londor when everything still looked like Oolacile but hadn't gone all abyss fucky yet. Would explain what Londor was doing with the Sword of Avowal that looked nothing like anything else they had going on.

Fried_Sushi

I think that's the implication, yes. The Sword of Avowal is a relic from Londor's ancient days, which we get to see in the DLC because time is convoluted.

My question is, what exactly is the symbolism behind the Sword? Yeah, of course, rings and all that, but what about the blade bisecting the ring? And why a sword, specifically? Is it meant to resemble the state of the sun as the Fire dies, which the eclipse bleeding down to the earth?

Because when have you ever seen a primordial serpent not sticking out of the dark? Kaathe and Frampt are both able to travel from their current locations to the kiln door, but the space around the kiln door is as dark as the abyss, as is Frampt's hidey hole. You can also jump from Frampt's hole into the kiln door yourself, showing that he isn't teleporting or anything, he's just dropping down.

So, how and why would Darkstalker Kaathe be anywhere outside the dark he's normally stalking in?

Playboyize
Playboyize

You don't necessarily need the Dusk Crown or the Scholar's Candlestick, just the Young/Bellowing Dragoncrest Rings and the Sage Ring if you're not pairing DEX with INT. The last ring slot can be anything you want. If you're just gonna use sorceries and regular catalysts, then start as a sorcerer. If you want to dabble with the Golden Ritual Spear, dark magic, or the Archdeacon Staff, then start as a pyromancer.

If you want to focus on casting, then pick up a Longsword and infuse it with Crystal. That should do you well for the rest of the game. Raw Astora Straight Sword works, too, but it needs buffs in order to deal decent damage later on in the game. It also has an annoying FAI requirement, which is why the Crystal Longsword might be a better option unless you really want to use the Scholar's Candlestick because for that you'll be leveling FAI anyway.

If you pair DEX with INT, then you can probably save a ring slot because you'll get casting speed from DEX and won't need Sage Ring, but that will limit you to lower levels of INT so you can't use magic to its fullest potential, but INT-scaling weapons will work fantastically.

Anyway, consider picking up these weapons:

Heysel's Pick (Hybrid pick + catalyst Split physical/magical damage. Has slight STR scaling, but mostly scales with INT.)
Crystal Sage Rapier (Longest rapier. Split physical/magical damage. Slight STR and DEX scaling, but mostly INT scaling.)
Moonlight Greatsword (Greatsword with projectile R2s. Split physical/magical damage. Pure INT weapons with hefty STR requirement.)
Immolation Tinder (Hybrid halberd + catalyst. Split physical/fire damage. Slight STR + DEX scaling, but mostly INT scaling. Requires FAI so Pyromancer might be a better starting class for it.)
Greatsword of Judgement (Greatsword with Stance WA that buffs itself, adding magic damage. Split physical/magic damage. Scales decently with both STR and DEX as well as INT.)

Ok I see you have serious trouble with reading comprehension.
FK in this game does 3 things:
- level
- cure hollowing
- betrayal ending

Bonfire leveling is better. Cure hollowing should be available anyway. Betrayal ending would be more interesting with Irina, because you've invested time into the character. It adds another layer to her oath, betrayal to the dark, and personal betrayal.
Making Irina into an FK is something extremely significant, but the way they did it the game may as well just kill her. If it expanded her dialogue and let her stay in the shrine in addition to above reasons, it automatically makes her more interesting than literally nothing the character. All current FK has going for her is waifu faggotry, and even then you could just change Irina to look like her.

Assuming the giant clusterfuck of dark that's slowly dragging in and devouring everything around it hasn't had an adverse reaction on the geography, those almost seem to fit up okay. Everything doesn't match up perfectly of course, but the general placements in relations to other parts are more or less correct when you account for the DaS1 map being rotated 90 degrees clockwise compared to the DaS3 map for whatever reason.

Exactly that, yes.

Because rising specs fuels the hardware industry, who in turn spend huge amounts of money sponsoring and investing in the games development industry to continue creating a market for them.

The incentive for efficient software is at an all time low because the amoybt of available hardware resources has been exponentially increasing while outsourcing has driven down the average educayion and skill level of softeare engineers involved

Sir_Gallonhead
Sir_Gallonhead

Wolnir has a special death animation too if you kill him without breaking his bracelets. Not sure if you can riposte him, though.

No it isn't, it's rotated that way so the Anor Londos point in the same direction. There's a difference. Spin DaS1's map 90 degrees clockwise and there are suddenly a whole lot more commonalities between the two. The DaS1 map also isn't showing a whole ton of locations like Sen's or Izalith, which makes it look smaller than it really is.

Flameblow
Flameblow

No, Yhorm has a non-ripostable knockdown from taking normal damage. He holds himself up with a hand on a knee and doesn't lower his head during it.

The ripostable knockdown can be triggered by hitting his weapon-arm or head enough times snd both count separately (meaning you can trigger two ripostes is a short period of time). Hitting elsewhere won't trigger a riposte.

Not necessary, I'm really good at spatial reasoning.

Again, ignoring the whole "abyss slowly eating the geography like a drain in a sink of oatmeal" thing going on, yes there's more in common when you flip them. The Anor Londos pointing in the same direction have less in common than when the two maps are facing the same way.

Catacombs are to the left of Anor Londo. Smoldering lake/demon ruins is between them both, where it should be. Irithyll is clearly a later addition to the map, so of course it wouldn't really line up with everything, though it's roughly where sen's would be. Farron keep occupies the same area as blighttown (NOT a surprise by any stretch of the imagination), and cathedral of the deep is sitting in the same area as darkroot (a bit surprising, though it makes sense given its implied relation to the abyss and that pit overlooking an extremely black chasm with an evangelist staring into it).

So, yes, a whole lot more in common.

It's just that japanese game devs are typically glorified art studios and generally only have a handful of actual programmers on staff. Most of development labour is in 3d modeling, animations and graphic design and even a lot of the graphic design is largely oursourced. The game itself is put together on proprietary development kits that nobody inhouse is qualified to modify and almost everything else software-related is done via 3rd parties through proxy of the publisher.

It's only the odd one out in the sense that it's facing the wrong direction. If you try to make them both face the same direction, then nothing else matches up. But if you don't, you get a whole lot of perfectly sensible shit like the poison swamp in 3 being in the same place as the poison swamp in 1, the skeleton catacombs in 3 being in the same place as the skeleton catacombs in 1, the demon ruins in 3 being in the same place as the demon ruins in 1, etc.

The logical conclusion is that Anor Londo facing the wrong way in 3 is most likely an oversight.

To be fair, there was more than just the one guy fighting in that arena. We haven't gotten any ashes from the others yet, so who's to say they wouldn't give access to the same arena?

Forgive me, I started mixing up words about halfway through that post.

Either spin the DaS3 map until catacombs are to the left of anor londo, or spin the DaS1 map until catacombs are above anor londo. You need two anchor points to orient a map, not just one, that's something you learn in basic military training. Use catacombs and anor londo as your two anchor points, and everything else lines up in very sensible ways.
