Think I'm way past most side quests now anyway, Im about to fight Aldrich, finished anor Londo, beat Yhorm. Off to wherever it is next, Ive put a lot of points in dexterity and luck this time, a bit in magic. I still struggle with the parry mechanic but I don't think my shield can do it tbh.

I dont remember the dancer boss being this much of a banana split. Literally getting cut to ribbons by him time after time. :x

Made some good progress on this last night, ended up playing until about 2am without realising it - so I'm paying for that today!

I killed the Old Demon in the Smouldering Lake, first few goes I tried to take him out too quickly and he had a few really annoying attacks which floored me if I was up close. In the end I went for a mix of cautious sword attacks followed by a retreat and some ranged attacks from my trusty longbow. He didn't stand a chance :datass:

Following that I did some more exploring of the Catacombs, found a bunch of pickups and enemies but can't see anything else I'm supposed to do here other than the boss that you fight when touch the goblet? He spanked me pretty hard a couple of times, so I decided to head back to some previous areas as I've had the feeling that I've been following a single "thread" through some spaces which might have more to offer to me... turns out I was right!

So having headed back to the road of sacrifices I found a boss that I completely missed the first time around, Crystal Sage, who proved to be a walk in the park to anything else I'd encountered (presumably as I'm possibly now somewhat overpowered for this area?) and this then lead to a whole new Cathedral area. I spent a very merry time here working my way through hordes of zombies and other creatures, before finishing up by taking out some giant in a big central chamber. It was a this point that I realised it had ceased to be Sunday night and was now Monday morning, so I thought I would call it quits there! :lol:

Not sure how effectively I've been levelling my character - I'm putting quite a lot of points into Dexterity more than anything as it seems to up my attacks. Either way he's served me well thus far.

Dexterity is what I've put my points into too. Cant believe you missed the whole cathedral area :lol: Did you meet patches? And rosaria?

I first fought the Dancer right near the start of the game when I got summoned in outside the first boss door. She tore me a new one.

Im levelled up way past that, cant summon anyone and there are no AI signs, I can get her to half health easy. But then everything falls apart.

My favourite boss so far is the dragon at arch dragon peak, when done properly :datass:

Finished :wub:

I picked this up again yesterday as I didn't want to start anything too big before Breath of the Wild and I've always found it easy to slip back into a Souls game. It turns out that I wasn't far from the Twin Princes and there wasn't anything between them and the final boss. There's bound to be content that I've missed but I'll look for that when I pick up the season pass and explore the new areas. I like that there's an option to delay starting NG+ even after finishing the game so that you can tie up any loose ends.

anyone still playing this?
looking at getting the DLC when the 2nd part comes out later this month; what's the current consensus on when to drop into the DLC? can you miss it on the first playthrough? character level suggestions etc.?

thanks!

I always leave the DLC as the second last thing I do before beating the final boss. You can lock yourself out of the first DLC if you accidentally kill the NPC that warps you there.

He appears next to the bonfire in the church before Cathedral of the Deep. He's crouched down praying and if you get invaded there it's probably quite easy to forget about him and attack him accidentally :lol: strawberry float having to wait till NG+ to do the DLC.

Stand out of the way of his fire and shoot arrows at him. You can't actually kill him as such but eventually he'll fly off and that counts as defeating him.

That's pretty funny. Strangely when I bought the DLC he just wasn't appearing for me and I thought maybe there was something else I needed to do. Fortunately he did appear eventually. But yea that would suck, especially for me as I tend to just go through the games the one time. I've never done NG+ believe it or not.
