I assumed he means the guy sitting by the bonfire. But yeah that other guy should be killed quickly.


I meant the guy by the bonfire too. If you talk to him enough throughout the game he eventually starts talking weirdly (well more weirdly) and becomes hostile, he attacks you on the way in to New Londo if memory serves

Ah... Got that mixed up with the guy by the firekeeper. Been ages since I last played it properly. :lol:

Just enjoyed a cracking session; got a bit further into the game, duffed up a couple of knights and got a Talisman :toot: . It was fun... painful, but fun :lol: . Thank you to the guys who joined and provided guidance :wub: .

Started a proper runthrough last night. Doing a Dex+Int build. Took Thief for the Master Key, and the Old Witch's Ring as my gift (Quelaag's sister mai waifu). Nipped down to New Londo to get the Estoc, then hopped through the Valley of the Drakes and down into Blighttown by the back entrance to get the Crimson Set and the Tin Banishment Catalyst. That's my weapon & armour sorted for the first half of the game. I love Dark Souls sequence breaking. :lol: :wub:

Need to farm some souls to get Soul Arrow from Rickert of Vinheim, then I can start actually playing the game.

In my last playthrough I suicided into the Valley of the Drakes because I wanted the Grass Crest Shield and Astora's Straight Sword, but I'm not bothered about getting them early this time through -- they're not helpful for this style of play anyway.

We're in the same location at the mo', Hypes! I saw that demon but he looked super-tough (double fire balls :o ) and so I went the other way instead; up into the courtyard and castle to face various knights.

Karl, I hadn't realised that you were so into Souls! You have detailed knowledge of the game... it must be quite an experience for you to have made multiple runs.

It's great that a few of us are now tackling the game at the same time. Our journeys can be shared :toot: .

Just had a quick look at a speedrun for this.

I've not watched much buthe completes it in just over half an hour, with a character that's just in his pants. :shock: :lol:

Yes, I'm not quite sure how you got there though, as I came from that castle with various knights that you got to. Also visited the humming onion but he didn't do anything so I left

... :lol: . Yeah, regardless of difficulty, there'll always br some folk who can play it blindfolded or something! Have you tackled Souls yet, Lime?

After running past the dragon on the bridge, I battled up the stairs and sneaked past the boar. I then followed the pathways round - tackling a few knights on the way - and ended up in the courtyard by that castle.

It's cool that we can each take different pathways through the adventure :-) .

Edit: Yeah, I saw silver onion guy, too; but he didn't seem to want to move.

Looks rather hard for my abilities, Jawa. :) Also I'm enjoying it indirectly via your streaming!

I only looked up that bonfire because I didn't want to die (again!) after *finally* beating those two knights :lol: .

Was that the thing that I used to do something (I don't know what) to the Estus Flask?

Same, I really can't afford any new games right now but this thread is tempting me to get the remastered trilogy.

Just had a pretty cool session!

I duffed up the three knights in the "church" area, wandered out and opened the gate by the boar area, went back and took down the other knight on the stairs, cleared out the horde of skeletons and then defeated Zappy Man! I was well chuffed :toot: . And Hyperion witnessed it so I'm not making this progress up :lol: .

Then I met Bell Gargoyle :dread: . I put up a valiant fight and got a few hits in but it took me down. It was quite funny as I ran down the narrow walkway beside the building at the end of the roof as I thought that may be a safe spot... and it just stood there and flamed me :slol: . :x .

Incredible scenes, incredible game.

If you want to see the action described, the vid is available to view on Twitch (for 14 days!).

Bless, Jawa, he still seems to think there's only one Bell Gargoyle in that fight.

He probably shouldn't highlight that spoiler. Or go and play Dark Souls 2 and deal with about five of them.

Talking about DS2, I'm just on the Iron Passage. The real Dark Souls starts now.

EDIT - Also, when fighting the Fume Knight (different game, I know), I realised that playing Bloodborne first basically conditioned me to dodge all the time. I never use my shield, unless it's to protect against surprises going round corners or in to the unknown.

I read criticism of DS that you could basically turtle your way through it from being a shield, and the developers even make a joke about it in Bloodborne.

Does anyone else basically just up their stamina, lower their equip weight and rely solely on dodging? It's especially effective in DS2 due to ADP increasing your i-frames.

... :shock: . Blimey. Uhm... this sounds like it's gonna be super-tough.

I've worked out how to export Twitch vids to YouTube so I've uploaded my last session:

While I respect you going it alone have you considered summoning help? There are NPC summons that can help immensely with some bosses if you are struggling.
