How do I get good?

PackManBrainlure

DeathDog
DeathDog

The term "git gud" does not refer to an actual state of skillfulness, but is rather a metaphor for the journey one must undertake. Thusly when someone is told to get good, they are being reminded of the personal discovery every one of us must set out on, a goal we must dream for, but something that forever remains unobtainable.

Despite common misperception of the phrase, "gud" is not an obtainable state, it is the ever evolving nirvana we all strive to reach, but none can obtain. As the meta-game evolves, so do the players, and so does the imperceptible notion of skill along with them. To become truly good is to reach the end of the infinite expanse of evolution that spans all playstyles, all counters, all cheap tricks, all predictive capabilities, and all reactive ones.

However impossible the goal is, however unendingly long the struggle to get there, we all undertake this task of personal growth and knowledge of the game, and we all can look back on days past with the encouraging fact that we have indeed, improved on the way we play the game.

They just aren't that great for damage compared to regular weapons.
That's because you stopped at 50 ARC :^)

I've played str/arc before but the tool damage was sorely lacking at that level and all the good weapons had a huge stamina drain. With the higher arcane you can deal comparable damage to an autism-gem weapon at a distance

All for 175 points of HP which makes fuck all difference in NG+ cycles and curse dungeons
I'd say +175 HP makes a pretty big difference in normal play and in cursed dungeons. Especially if you've got two clockwise runes (their +25% HP makes it +220 HP instead of +175).

Not as much in NG+ cycles, since you'll often die in two hits no matter what, but in cursed dungeons it's usually enough to make the difference between dying in two hits and dying in three (since physical damage is reduced in FRCs).

especially when you're going to be fighting at a distance a lot of the time, which is a major reason to use arcane tools in the first place.
Sounds boring, and it doesn't even work for a lot of bosses anyway. Attacking them from range just enrages them and makes them tunnel vision on you specifically, even if you have two summoned players hacking at its back as you run for your life.

If you've got that much ARC anyway I don't get why you wouldn't use your converted weapons. At 99 ARC, they do like 10% more damage with gems than they do at 50 ARC

Especially if you've got two clockwise runes (their +25% HP makes it +220 HP instead of +175).
The difference in FRCs is "only" about 110, but I agree; I'd rather have 910 HP than 800.

At 99 ARC, they do like 10% more damage with gems than they do at 50 ARC
15%, which is almost as insignificant.

I damn sure wouldn't sacrifice 20 Vit for 20 Arc at BL98, but that user has made up his mind. Although at this point I'm not sure if he's even the user who posted the build to begin with.

Sounds boring
Less boring than fighting melee all the time with a stat spread that benefits ranged attacks with varied spells
Attacking them from range just enrages them and makes them tunnel vision on you specifically, even if you have two summoned players hacking at its back as you run for your life.
If you fight them alone, that changes literally nothing about the fight
If you've got that much ARC anyway I don't get why you wouldn't use your converted weapons
I do. Why would you think I exclusively use the tools?
At 99 ARC, they do like 10% more damage with gems than they do at 50 ARC
And your spells do at like 50% more damage per hit, which adds up to a fuckton of damage if the whole spell hits

Also the 10 fewer points in vit is even less of a big deal at lv 98 since nobody is using shit like a maxed out Ludwig's build, so I don't get why everyone's having a go over it. People here do low vit meme builds all the time and post webms of one-shotting in pvp with max ARC n sheeit

The Harrowed Set is a good choice since its tattered state gives it a beastly feeling.

no, Harrowed garb is ruined by the fact that you can see your pale human skin through the collar of the shirt up to your beastly neck. Same for beast hide garb (go figure it's the two that you'd think would be best to wear as a beast)

if you want tattered, you should go for the Old Hunter garb or the Charred Hunter garb. Standard hunter outfits look good too

BinaryMan
BinaryMan

I've played str/arc before but the tool damage was sorely lacking at that level and all the good weapons had a huge stamina drain.

STR/ARC here, I have 120 stamina (15 END + 20% rune) and I can use all the really heavy weapons quite effectively. Even on my character with really high stamina, I usually can't get off more than 2 or 3 heavy R2 or L2 attacks with these heavy weapons before having to dodge away from an incoming counterattack anyway, and that's how many I can do with 120 stamina (three R2's usually exhausts it though)

If you post anything about Bloodborne in /dsg/ you get a million angry PCucks on your ass telling you to go back to /bbg/ . I dislike people who intentionally try to provoke /dsg/ by jerking off to Bloodborne's superiority there but if you try to talk about BB normally, the angry masturds will soil their diapers and direct you back here.

I dislike platform elitism when it's PC or Console I also understand that Piss Dribble users were really douchy toward the pc users but the way /dsg/ is now is that you can't discuss Bloodborne in there because the pc people will get assmad.

Pure arc is good for hunter tools and if you like the weapons you can use without str/skl investment like the saw spear, kos parasite, saw cleaver, cane, and hunter axe. Str/arc is good if you want to use the HMLS, wheel, tonitrus, and other convertable weapons with higher requirements like the whirligig and LHB.

I reeeeally want to play pure arc, but at level 98, the arc investment will either leave me too frail, or not make much difference from that of a 50 arc build if I do invest in vit. I've seen the charts and such for tool scaling, but how significant is the difference between 50-70 in practice?

it helps to setup the fight. if you hit rom as much as possible but stop just short of makign her teleport away, then pause and full recharge your stamina you can unleash a full combo to stagger her and squeeze out as much easy damage as possible before the real fight starts. if you do it right you can get 2/3 of her health or more down and then just hit and run, spam projectiles or whatever to close it out.

you can stay way outside range and just bait out attacks. dash in and out really quick. saw and club guys only have a handful attacks with pretty generous parry windows. just lead them in a big circle around the area, keep one eye on gun bro and his gun. never just r1, spam, only visceral.

Do them in rhe room with stairs and just kite them. If you're on a Str build spam Beast Cutter R2s. If you're on Arc KP will easily beat them. On skill, if you're not good at parrying them: get some distance so that if you don't parry you won't get his and only parry them when they do multiple attacks in a row. Also get +20% and + 30% visceral dmg runes and two viscerals are enough to kill them.

For radial watcher gems I use by68zgaj. Iirc it has 2 Pthumerians, a hemwick witch and a watcher before the leaver. You can easily run past the Pthumerians and the Hemwick witch.

For triangles 5wagd6c4. Go through 1 rooms beat 1 Brainsucker and then you can fight the Watcher boss.

It's a pretty trivial boss if I'm being entirely honest.

Defiled Amy is definitely one of the most frustrating bosses, way up there. It's just due to circumstances, the reduced health, upped damage, it honestly is just annoying. But if you fight it enough, you can start feeling a rhythm. You see the attacks, know what they do, and you just react, you know how to dodge into the head, around the arms, hell, I've fought the fucker enough that I can with a near 95% success rate just feel the timing to i-frame through the jump attack. It eventually becomes little more than a chore in the end, it just takes time.

Only good bossfights are Flamelurker and False Allant

Penetrator? Old Hero? Old Monk? Maneaters?
And who can forget the amazing theme of Dragon God, or the visual design of the Adjudicator, or the feel of seeing the Storm King, its size contrasted with the manta rays that pestered you through the whole area?

And mechanically, the movement is fast and tight, the movesets precise, and fluid movesets. Sure, the graphics are now showing their age, as to be expected. Sure, the upgrade system, although a great idea, with many of the upgrade paths finding use, was implemented poorly with seemingly arbitrary path divergence points and the difficulty with which it takes to actually obtain the upgrade materials (if you don't cheat and dupe). But the music and atmosphere are bar none aside maybe Bloodborne, and the game still very well stands on its own.

Don't get me wrong, I loved the different upgrade paths, and how useful the vast majority of them were to different builds, but having to grind out sharpstone after you killed all the crystal lizards, or that ever elusive pure bladestone was unecessary tedium. And this is coming from someone that holds Demon's Souls as their second favorite Souls game; second only to Bloodborne.

I wasn't saying the atmosphere in DeS was bad, but all of the bossfights in DeS today except Allant / Flamelurker are complete jank or directly inferior to their counterparts in the other games.

I think the smithing system of DeS was the most inflexible and limiting especially given how you could only kake certain weapons heavy / sharp.

Don't give her any space, dodge around her ass and if you can, spam her into a corner and go to town. If you can use beast roar, it works wonders to keep her down while your stamina recharges.

As said, pretty much every hunter ends up there, if they succumb to the boodlust of the hunt.

Ludwig was post-Hamlet, he was a Church hunter, the Hamlet massacre was perpetrated by Byrgenwerth. Ludwig is the way he is indirectly because of the Moonlight Sword, it essentially blinded him to what he was doing, he focused on the sword and the tiny beings of light within it, until he was so neck deep n the hunt he didn't realize, and became the most monstrous beast of all.

The trick is to only parry the guaranteed followups. For example, if he dodges towards you and he's in range to attack, he will, and you know you can parry that because of it. Same if he dashes toward you. Same if he jumps up in the air towards you. You also know if he starts his combo, and he's near you, he's going to keep swinging, so you can parry his followup hits. It's like a setup parry.

I love Bloodborne to fucking death. But after doing 4-5 full runs I have to say the only negative Ive discovered is the sheer number of easy bosses. Cleric Beast, Hemwick, Shadows, One Reborn, Rom, Mergos Wet Nurse, Moon Presence. Ive never needed more than 2-3 tries to kill any of them after my initial run. The soundtracks may be nice, but I just wish I got the same feeling beating them that I did after beating OoK, Laurence and Ludwig.

As said, Oedon Writhe, but also blood bullets, rally, and Formless Oedon. Honestly, you're gonna have to just feel out how much you use hunter tools, and how you prefer to deal with the increased bullet use.

TechHater
TechHater

Augur is very powerful now and only takes 1 bullet. Tiny Tonitrus is rarely worth it in PvE - only for niche situations when enemies are in a line.

ACB should be used only on bosses because it will knock down regular enemies after two hits. Use blood bullets EVERY TIME before ACB. With 20 bullets you'll get 10 casts of it.

You also have your fire/bolt/arc weapons - tools aren't your primary source of damage

Fuzzy_Logic
Fuzzy_Logic

Tools should supplement your damage, not be your main source, that comes from elementally gemmed weapons. Blacksky Eye to draw enemies from afar and chip damage, A Call Beyond when you're surrounded, Augur to parry or knockback, Brew for splash damage, Gloves for stunlock. Tools have a more ranged utility your weapons don't always have, so use them as you need them. Also, blood bullet and QS runes, like Formless Oedon and Oedon Writhe, to carry more and regain some with viscerals.

Skullbone
Skullbone

Some weapons have better scaling due to their gem slots for arcane gems. If you want a solid early arcane weapon kill the brainsucker at the bottom of the cathedral workshop village, grab the arcane gem and slap it into the saw spear. It

BlogWobbles
BlogWobbles

If I make a FRC dungeon, would anyone here be interested in spelunking with me?

haveahappyday
haveahappyday

More or less. Slot an elemental gem into a weapon and it immediately scales only with arc, Uncanny variations, I was told, are best for this. However, weapons with innate arc damage, like the Blades of Mercy, Burial Blade, Amy Arm, cannot be converted and are essentially usless to you, same for weapons with Blood damage.

ZeroReborn
ZeroReborn

That's right. A lot of people end up using arc cane fire saw spear and bolt X. Personally I'm a big fan of fire beast cutter even though it's not serrated and bolt Saif to mix things up. Bolt Church Pick works really well too because of thrust + bolt tears up ayylmao assholes.

But what said. My advice is to get a +6 saw spear with two fire radials from the hotdog in the first chalice (run it twice), the crescent gem from near the brainsucker, and kill Ludwig early.

Then go into the fishing hamlet to get chunks and fantastic bolt gems to kill orphan with, then you have your tentacles.

He's better off farming flaming hatchet skinny guys at the next dungeons for higher % fire gems, the drop rate is not that bad with high arcane but if he gets out of luck, killing Hotdog one more time for a garanteed drop is better.

The only thing I can think of is to try and attack the same limb as me. You want to focus your damage on individual parts at a time, and it's usually better to go for the back legs first because they're sturdier. After you smash his back legs it usually puts him into phase two, and that's when he gets really dangerous, but his front legs break fast enough that it usually won't matter.

So I was reading up on parasite but I'm not sure if it was an outdated post made prior to the +65 scaling gems buff. it said that with arcane <70 you are better of using flat gems on the parasite and only a couple of attacks hit harder with the hybrid scaling and & gem setup, even then it only hits very slightly harder. Past 70 arcane it said you get better effect with the hybrid setup. Is this still true? I have 58 arcane and I'm using the 27.2% triangle, 22.3% radial and +65 scaling radial setup right now. Am I better of going for flat instead?

he probably just has his ports forwarded.
I know about UPnP and how that's supposed to make it not necessary, but I manually forwarded my ports on my router for Bloodborne and PSN anyway, and now I connect to password sessions super fast pretty much every time. Maybe it's just placebo but I swear it's the port forwarding.

Occasionally, I turn the PS4 back on from rest mode or I restart my modem and I cannot connect to anyone for like 10 - 20 minutes , ports open or not. Then the game resolves its connection problems after being in-game online for a while, and suddenly I can connect to everyone. If that doesn't work I just restart my PS4 and that usually makes it fast again

one interesting thing I noticed about locating a beckoning bell is that it seems to be more likely to connect if you frequently make the small resonant bell icon have a little 'X' through it because you walk on/off some uneven terrain. Also it seems to connect when you keep backstepping and swinging your weapon. If I just stand still it always takes like twice as long to find anyone.

There is probably no actual correlation, but there might be so I do it anyway

Why does strength get all the best weapons?
Also can arcane pizzacutter/amy arm be viable?

Deadlyinx
Deadlyinx

Don't forget the Beast Cutter, that thing is sick as hell.

Fire Whirly is very powerful thanks to its high modifiers, especially if you use oil urns- running R2s on Abhorrent Beast and Loran Darkbeast after oil do excess of two thousand damage, more if the limb you hit is broken.

Amygdalan Arm already has latent arcane damage though, so much like the Burial Blade and Blade of Mercy it's useless on an arc build.

haveahappyday
haveahappyday

Burial Blade and Blade of Mercy it's useless on an arc build
wait why

Boy_vs_Girl
Boy_vs_Girl

Burial Blade, Blade of Mercy and Amygdalan Arm all have a small amount of built-in arcane damage. This means they can't be converted to fire, bolt or arcane damage. It's so small, though, that nourishing gems don't do enough to boost it to a reasonable level.

It's a real shame, but them's the breaks.

Well I've been running around with the Burial Blade with 20+ cursed physicals and 43 ARC. Doesn't the HMS have the same problem because I use the shit out that too.

If I need elemental gems on a pure physical weapon I just switch to my sawspear tbqh but its not as fun.

Snarelure
Snarelure

The Moonlight Sword is a different case. It's true that the blade benefits most from physical gems and strength scaling, but putting nourishing gems in it on an arc build makes the moonbeams do some pretty bonkers damage. And the arc damage on the tricked blade isn't too dismally low like it is on Burial Blade etc., it just isn't anything phenomenal like it is on tricked Wheel.

I'd recommend getting some nourishing gems to slot into your Moonlight Sword and throwing some R2s around. Slapping things up close with both the beam and the sword makes some hilariously high numbers.

You gotta try it. Even lvl150 Ludwig builds struggle, they run out of stamina and you're only a third of health down.

Unlike Dark Souls, physical resistance is not a meme in Bloodborne, it just takes a lot of investment to get returns, like Arcane tools.

50 VIT plus clockwise is still squishy, despite the size of the health bar.

My Burial Blade with 50 Skl and 24 Str (I put 1 point too much into vit accidently) with 2 27.2% phys and 1 26.3% phys gem has 642 AR without any flat damage. Yours should be 643 (with flat damage) if I'm not mistaken. And I'm pretty sure you'd usually want to avoid flat damage on all weapons except the Wheel, Kos Parasite (L2 spam) and maybe the Pizza Cutter.

Ignoramus
Ignoramus

Flat damage in of itself is not a problem. The only caveat is that it doesn't scale. With that said, I did the math and it shows that with 50 SKL, 30 ARC, and full nourishing abyssal gems, my burial blade build has only 29 damage less WITHOUT the flat damage. With the flat damage, I do a lot more. The damage is comparable if not better.

Forgot to add this part:
I did some math myself and found that the reason your build gives a higher AR was because of the flat damage, which doesn't scale with multipliers. Just curious how it worked out in practice.
