Is it viable in PVE (read: viable, not possible) to use your gun for a lot of damage without either: farming for gems non-stop or be at 50 bloodtinge and thus on NG+ or grinding.
I'm assuming with a +10 evelyn I could if I had 50 bloodtinge.
But what about getting the runes to get +5 bullets per visceral attack? Wouldn't that more or less make it work

I imagine it will be hard but on the other hand, a +10 repeatng pistol with BMA would wreck most bosses at high BT, no?

Saw Cleaver and Spear have pretty decent rally on their transformation attacks and they can be chained really fast. Whirligig is the only other one that comes to mind. Amygdalan Arm and Beast Cutter can hyper armor into a mob and rally it all back with a few swings, but the individual hits ain't all that.

Something tells me they are working on two Souls games at once
It makes sense, DS2 and BB were developed simultaneously, as were DS3 and BB. Otherwise we'd have 3 year breaks between each game.

You can also bet that whichever of the games Miyazaki is the most active in directing is going to be the most critically acclaimed of them. If they're doing AC[reboot] / SDT[''weird game''] / Yet to be announced [Souls with different name], I think they could let Tanimura handle Armored Core while Miyazaki works between the Souls style game and the ''weird'' game.

It doesn't according to the Weapon Data, but it does feel pretty high

Yes, with 50/25 you can use Toni, Boom Hammer, Wheel and HMS including other Str weapons and Skl weapons with Heavy Abyssals. On 25/50 you get those 4 weapons plus Parasite and anything you can convert to fire, bolt and arcane

If the hunters contract is fulfilled is the night done for everyone, or just the hunter? I assume because hunters like djura and eileen both opted out of their contract early and arrived in the waking world but it was still the night of the hunt.

First-attempt Darkbeast? Awww yeah. Nice spelunk

Inmate

It’s probably mostly balanced around how hard/slow a weapon is. BoM having high rally would be unbalanced for example. Your health is also described as your ”will to survive”, so seeing an enemy take a lot of damage in one hit shortly after it damaged you would in that regard translate to an increased will to survive.

6 Flowers in the special coffin
The bell beckoned an entire pthumerian death squad and a madman too
3 Bastards of Loran laying around
The first and last appearance of the Bell Maiden and her dreadful spoders
Another Madman and three Scourge Beast guarding the treasure room
9 more Flowers in the special coffin
Chain-backstabbed a Bone Ash Roastie, while we were at it
2 Red Jellies in a chest
Turns out pre boss bonus area looops back into the pre lamp one
2 more Jellies in another chest
Got invaded by a rando on our way to the boss: made us waste ten minutes looking for him
His ambush failed and he got ganked
Boss was Dorkbeast: stunlocked to death, after a rough start
No Layer 4

Weapons that do physical damage only and have a listed Arcane scaling don't actually benefit from it if you don't gem them with elemental Bloodgems.

But, the answer is no, elemental conversions typically don't reach the nominal AR of standard weapons.

You just need to have beaten the first two floors of the first chalice dungeon IIRC. It has a watcher mini-boss at the end of the first bonus room before the first two lamps and gives like 12k a run I think and takes very little.
Go through the bonus door, kill two NPCs, draw them out one at a time, don't fall down, go right then left up the staris to the watcher and ignore the other enemies.
He has a gun and all he'll do is shoot. Fair faster than the piggies since you can't really die unless you're retarded

If the Moon Presence revokes your contract because you were a poop and a failure as a hunter, the Dream is over for you but not others. Both Djura and Eileen decided to pursue dumb shit that had nothing to do with their mission and got their respawn cards revoked.

If a Hunter fulfills their contract i.e kills Mergo, what happens with the Dream is up to which ending you choose.

Yharnam Sunrise :
Gehrman stays as the guardian of the hunters whenever a new hunt happens. You stop dreaming and return to the waking world like everyone else who is still alive.

Honoring Wishes :
You become Gehrman and are trapped in the Dream, guiding new hunters on the next hunts when/if they occur. You work for the Moon Presence.

Childhood's beginning :
You take MP's place and you have direct control over the Dream's continuity or at least I think being a Great One means that. Immediately after the ending you're a babby though and have to be cared for and breastfed by the Doll so you don't have your powers yet. You can shape humanity's future.

Heavy Abyssals are not worth it if you don't have 50 STR. Use the tricked Threaded Cane for extra visceral damage since it gets a skill scaling boost. The best visceral damage comes from a fully thrust gemmed tricked Threaded Cane which is obviously not very useful for combat, but really fine for the memes.

50/25 will do more damage in general except when exploiting exploiting elemental weaknesses in some species of enemies.
I find 25/25/50 to be the most fun and versatile build (especially for coop), but you have to go up to like level 110 to get those stats with acceptable VIT, and you need to build an arsenal of converted weapons for every situation. All the tools work and the only weapons you can't use are ones with bloodtinge requirements over 7. Parasite, beast claws, burial blade etc all work fine with it

Well of course anything is viable, you can kill anything with everything, just that I tend to feel a bit miffed if one weapon is just twice as good as everything else. Especially if it's one you can easily obtain early on, rather than some lategame thing that requires a highly specialized build or something.

Playboyize

The reason is that every weapon is viable and spamming transform attacks to deal with every enemy gets boring eventually. I've done a "stick with one weapon the whole game" challenge with every weapon in the game on various levels of NG+. Every weapon has a ton of tricks and situational benefits. The only weapons that are objectively bad IMO are Kos Parasite and BoM. Parasite is simply too slow and BoM is redundant if you have Rakuyo.

I don't like to use the term "viable" because it means nothing in PvE focused games. My point is that even if a weapon's moveset is cool as fuck, if it takes twice as long to kill shit as the basic bitch starting weapon I'm just going to look at it as annoyingly impractical and using it would just frustrate me, since I wouldn't be able to shake that fact.
Please, don't get me wrong, it's not like I'm looking for a cheese build, I just don't like using weapons that feel comparatively ineffective, and thus I hate games with blatantly superior, easily accessible weapons for making everything else look that much worse by comparison. I get that it's probably not totally logical, but it's just a pet peeve of mine.

I just think it's bad game design, man. I like it if the game makes me actually think about what would be best to use in a given situation, not just "use saw spear for the entire game until you have your desired build finished, realize your weapon while cool as fuck is horribly impractical because From always favors simple efficiency over flashy shit, make a new character, repeat"
To me for a weapon to be fun it has to feel both cool AND strong, and I don't like it if I have to choose one or the other.

CodeBuns
CodeBuns

I don’t understand people who reason like this. All weapons are viable. Unless you’re using something horribly inefficient like idk tonitrus against darkbeast you’re not really going to have any problems. If you can kill something with saw cleaver you’re not going to have a hard time killing it with chikage or beast cutter or kirkhammer or whatever. The saws are overall better and quicker, but aside from that all the other weapons are fairly well balanced. In some situations saws are suboptimal compared to other weapons. If you like a certain weapon you should use it, even if it’s not the absolute best. I love the amy arm for example, even though my build is not optimal for it and there are other weapons that I could do more dps with. But the only difference is that I will kill a boss maybe 10 seconds slower.
On the other hand, you could use different weapons for different situations, say use a thrust weapon agains kin, serrated against beasts etc. if you’re really looking to ”use the best weapon possible” that alone is a reason to try out other weapons.

WebTool

Well, I explained my reasoning in a few other posts already. I have fun experimenting with options and finding what works best for various things, so having just one weapon or build or something dominate the entire game with no real competition tends to ruin games for me right then and there.

Nah, not really talking about worthless weapons specifically.
I come from Monster Hunter where typically you'd have for instance most of the weapons soloing endgame quests in around 8-10 minutes, with the obligatory trash weapon taking 14 and then one or two weapons do it in 5-6 and much more easily too, and that kind of thing just annoys me. It makes the element of choice feel pointless when a few options are just so blatantly and massively superior to everything else.

You're fundamentally thinking about games the wrong way. The point of video games isn't to kill the enemies - that doesn't actually have any consequence. The point, the goal, the endgame, is to have fun, enjoy yourself. So your assumption that weapons that can kill enemies faster or more efficiently are objectively "better" is wrong to begin with. Maybe killing things easily and fast is what's fun for you. Though I pity you if so.

Yeah sorry I saw that after posting. But it’s not really the case, that the saws are so overpowered that they dominate the game completely. I think that they took great care in designing the game so that all weapons are equally viable, bearing in mind they all of course have strengths and weaknesses. I haven’t played any other souls games (I feel I fucked up by playing bb first because I can’t into other games now) but from what I understand the weapons in those games are a lot more different in terms of power. The saws may be overall better, but the reason they’re used in speedruns is because they only have time to upgrade and use 1 weapon. For most people playing the game it’s not a big deal if you kill a boss in say 45 seconds instead of 30. I know a lot of bosses where other weapons are better than the saws. Slower weapons hit harder which opens up for a completely different playstyle for example. You’re not gonna have a good time having pthumerian descendant walk into your charged saw cleaver R2s.

The games are mostly PvE, and outside of the old ones, most of the game have you building your own mecha, but this isnt your normal shit, instead of a rpg were you just want to get the best stats or games like bloodborne were you juat assign stats for a specific build, you have a shit tons of stats that are create a huge cascade of dependencies, there isnt really a "big OP" weapon, and is more about creating your own playstyle and refine it with tons of experimentiation and aome trial and error.

Don't misunderstand, it's not that my interest is in killing shit effortlessly that's supposed to be difficult, as ideally, I wouldn't want any weapon to be capable of this. I fundamentally despise overpowered crutches in all forms, and I think that having those weapons totally outshine everything else makes the rest feel less rewarding to obtain, learn and use. I'm not trying to get all autistic over minute differences like 2 minutes vs 2 minutes and 10 seconds, but if you see my Monster Hunter example up above, that's the sort of imbalance I've had to deal with and that I've grown to loathe fiercely.

I dunno mate, you could call every game in the world flawless if you just ignored everything you didn't like. It's not that easy for me. Once I know, then that's that, it's not gonna leave my head. But a weapon that's cool conceptually being poorly executed and very weak in practice definitely would impact my enjoyment, anyhow. Using Monster Hunter as an example again, in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, the weakest weapon type in the game is the Switch Axe. Main reason I thought of MH here is that this weapon operates a lot like a BB trick weapon, with two distinct modes, a giant axe and a great sword, with the great sword form being limited by a meter. Unlike every other resource based weapon in the game, this meter cannot be refilled by any means other than passive regeneration in axe mode, or a manual reload.
The way you're meant to play it is spending your meter in sword mode which does more damage, then using axe mode and making use of its greater reach and mobility until your sword mode is recharged, and using transform attacks to switch between the two modes as needed.

Except that axe mode damage and the regen is so slow that that entire form is completely worthless, and it's not even useful for mobility as that part had been nerfed with each successive game since the weapon's introduction.

And your movement speed in general is one of the slowest in the entire game.

And despite having the highest displayed AR coefficients in the game, making you believe it's extremely powerful, it does very mediocre DPS even in optimal situations, and has zero burst damage.

And it has a phial system which grants different boosts to your sword mode depending on which weapon you crafted, except only one of them was actually a viable choice, severely limiting your options.

Now I don't know if there are monumental fuckups on this scale in BB, but I don't see why these sorts of things shouldn't affect your enjoyment of the game just because "it's PvE".

Nourishing gems if you're planning on keeping your build where it's at. 30/30 ARC/STR is kind of weird though. You're likely around BL100 but don't even have a single attack stat at 50. I'd worry more about knowing how to make a good build before trying to farm good gems.

It seems like we have a ton of new players reading this general or guides and only getting half the info, trying to minmax builds, instead of playing naturally and learning the essentials. No offense though.

I'm on my second character, when I bought BB I didn't give a shit about making the build good. I just want to make this character as good as he can be.
If I was to just either make a new character or pump some more stats up in arcane on this guy, would nourishings still be the way to go?

VisualMaster

I used to. It was my first souls-like game and all the enemies were unknown and extremely dangerous to me because I sucked. I also didn't know where any of the traps were yet, nor where to look for them, so I thought they could be anywhere.
I thought the game had an oppressive atmosphere that kind of made you afraid to even just take a step forward further into the map, especially in the longer, easier-to-get-lost-in sections like Forbidden Woods

MPmaster

I find HMLS/Wheel (using the overall moveset) to be better on 50str/25arc but you CAN do 25str/50arc and use the tricked versions. With 50arc the lightwaves on HMLS will be stronger for sure but the overall moveset won't be as good. I'd still go nourishing but you could even gem them as if it was an arcane weapon, or use flat arcane gems on the wheel for the multihit attacks. This is all under the assumption you don't care about being overleveled and if that's the case just go 50/50 arc/str and enjoy being OP.

99 Arc is very strong for Tools, having low HP isn't that bad in PvE when you can nuke pretty much everything from range but you'll have a tough time in PvP. Typical Str/Arc build is 25/50 with 12-25 Skl, all weapons cap at 50 so you'll deal plenty of damage with them while having lots of variety. Most Tools are fine at 50 too, A Call Beyond will be underwhelming though.

You can co-op with BL4s which is the lowest level. BL24 and lower can co-op with them

In moments like that I just let the boss have their kill, can't stand shitters who do that. Plus it's amusing seeing the host get chased by the boss and trying to run to me as if I'm their parent.

Is a heavy abyssal worthwhile on hmls if I go 45-30 for acursed brew?
Or should I go full arc and use the hmls alongside converted weapons?

Canon Giant is a cake walk. You just circle him to the left and attack his left asscheek, occasionally dodging backwards.

2kat can be dealt with fundamentally the same way, with the added bonus of having an easily exploited jump attack.

2chainz is the only one that's actually a little complicated, but the aforementioned strat works on him as well.

Depends on your other stats and whether or not you care about beam damage

I care about beam damage. I have 30 arc and it's the minimum I want, I hav base stats to use it otherwise and 20 vit. I want to keep my level pretty low, somewhere around 50-70 for invasions.

Wat. No; Heavies are for Str.

If you meant Cold, the answer's still no; most of HMLS' damage comes from physical, and the Arc base damage is too low to really get anything out of it.

The best way to gem HMLS almost regardless of your build is with three Nourishing Abyssals.

Cleaver or Saw? Saif?

16/12 Str/Skl? Nah, Heavies are for builds with 50 Str (40+ might also be ideal depending on the weapon/stats). Stick with Nourishings, minimum Str/Skl for HMS isn't ideal but since you're staying low then it's fine, plus it's great for beams.

ARC for one build and quality for another.

I prefer Cleaver for Str and Arc, Spear for Skl and 50/50 Quality (Spear is fine for Str and Arc too, I just like Cleaver's tricked mode better and both L1s are serrated anyway). Saif looks similar but the moveset is pretty different, so I'd say get that plus either Cleaver or Spear

Thanks, I was planning to backup my save and try things. I'm gonna try leveling up different ways and see what feels right. So 45 str is generally not enough to make a heavy better than another nourishing?

For arc just choose what you want, obviously saws are the best for for conversion, saif is a popular bolt choice. For quality (which doesn't really have place in Bloodborne, honestly) just go spear.
50/50 Quality
Where do you think you are?

Ah. We usually use 45/30 to describe 45str/30arc.

Answer's still no. If you're going to go all the way to 30 Arc and farm actual FRCs and care about your beam damage, you want Nourishings.

Sharpcharm

Oh you mean 45 Str, well a Heavy wouldn't be a bad idea if you want more damage out of the blade but Nourishings are good for that and beams

There's a triangular Odd Arcane Bloodgem (Add arcane ATK+30.4) in the pre lamp area in p2tbyrh2.
Have yet to check if there's a false depth Pthu with a farmable Succ Boi.

The Witch of Hemwick feels more like a game of hide and seek than a boss fight.

I know it's still early in the game, but so far I like the Dark Souls boss fights better.

The Witch is one of the worse bosses, in all honesty. The first fight in the DLC will really change your mind, though. That one is probably one of the best, if not the best in the game.

The Witch is probably the most underwhelming boss fight I've encountered in any of the Soulsborne games so far.

It's just not a good fight. However, the Witch can come back with a vengeance in some areas.
Look past her at the other bosses so far.
