Ten minutes later you'll have knocked the tail off and got the sword. It walks over most enemies up till about Sens Fortress, but you'll have most likely got something better/ more suited to your style by then.

I want to do this, but that way of doing it feels like such an exploitation/cheat/etc. How do you kill it normally?

the technical requirement for the drake sword is to deal x amount of damage to its tail

you either dodge and attack it with a sword on the bridge with supreme timing

or i guess you can dodge then use a bow

either way is gonna take a while and require a lot of attempts and frustration to get down

there's really no easy legitimate way that early in though without truely mad skills
saw a speedrun where someone did it with some electric sword or something with one fell swoop but thats skill level korean

Ah, I see. So I'm guessing by the time you have the gear to do it, your gear would probably be better anyways?

depends how well you know the game, but yeah definitely on your first run if you were to wait to do it legitimately you'd probably not have a lot of use for it

Good luck with that though. The dragon normally flames the bridge the second you step onto it. Gold Pine Resin is something youg don't want to really waste getting the drake sword anyway since there's easier ways of getting it.

Also, that dude must be rocking some intense Fire resistance to take a flame like he does.

Yeah I'm going to have to weigh up whether or not I feel comfortable 'cheating' like that. But I'll probably do it.

There is no "cheating" in Dark Souls. You have to do whatever you can to get ahead

If that means taking advantage of the enemy not being able to reach you then you sure as hell make sure they can't reach you.

Going back to The Phantom Pain, I have a theory.

So, sometime during Ground Zeroes, Psycho Mantis or some psychic enemy shows up. This causes the game to "glitch" and it re-boots as The Phantom Pain, with a different title screen and everything. Kinda like Arkham Asylum.

In this, you play as Big Boss who has woken up from a coma with a freshly amputated arm. Those you have killed before show up as hallucinations to hunt you through this hospital, while you are pretty helpless. That would explain the appearance of Volgin and The Fury would explain all the fire. The horse/unicorn thing could represent The Boss.

I know this is all speculation but I want it to be true. It could be one of the greatest boss encounters of all time. It'd make sense too. There was all the weird Psycho Mantis shit in MGS1. There was The Sorrow encounter in MGS3 which was about facing your past. There was that weird MGS1 section in MGS4 which shows Kojima is familiar with the idea of putting a game in a game.

It just seems right for some reason.

The Drake sword does 200 damage, and that's it. It has no stat scaling, at all, so even once you get to a moderate Str or Dex level with a weapon with like, C scaling, it will be better than the Drake sword.

However, that claymore that is a bit further up the bridge is a great Str weapon.

They better not make it some stupid romance story. DS1 had a ****ing fantastic story. Just the appearance of the chick giving you some key or something in that trailer makes me nervous about the story of this one..

well they've said the game's gonna be more accessible and more understandable, whatever that means.

i still need to play dark souls tbh, waiting for astorias edition to be reasonable.

also, i'm kinda tempted on guardians of middle earth for some reason, even though i've never played a moba outside of, uh, awesomenauts.

Sony owned the demon souls name, so instead of Demon souls II, we got Dark souls.


^^^It's a CGI announcement trailer, don't get your panties in a twist.

I suspect that just means actually explaining what all the stats do more directly. Like, it took me about 10 hours before I realized I could actually check what they did in the menu. I seriously doubt they would make it easier, because the difficulty is kind of a hallmark of the series. Just make it more...intuitive.
