Love the game, thought the challenge was great and the style was amazing. I used a black knight sword for like 80% of the game, depending on the boss, I either had Havel's armor or nothing (and black knight armor for the final boss to look like a badass)

Thought the hardest boss was Sif. Especially since by the time I got him to low enough health to kill I didn't want to ;_;

Centipede Demon was easiest, beat it my first try by just wacking it's legs, summoning Solaire, and spamming estus.

A game with similar mechanics (really hard, how you use items) that people should check out if they really dug this is Monster Hunter. Tons of content and 4 player co-op.

I have reservations about Dark Souls 2, hope it turns out fine.

My first character I used the starting Wanderer armor throughout the entire game and ended it with two-handing the black knight halberd. BK weapons are incredible. The character is total garbage, such random stats and I (for some reason) put a whole bunch into resistance


Using the machete that Capra Demon uses right now on my current character. +15 at the moment total str build. Just walk in and destroy EVERYTHING

I'm really hopeful for DS2, but if I recall correctly there is a different director. It's a scary sequel.. It could turn out total garbage or blow us all away. It has a LOT to live up to, in my opinion.


And I've been looking at Monster Hunter, but I don't think they make one for PC

my first play through I didn't even know what was going on

I got to the capra demon without spending a soul because I didn't realise you could level up

ended up with a str/faith build that absolutely dominated


currently running a SL1 build and a DEX/INT build (1000+ damage per hit in PvP if I get my buffs down)

The first character I beat the game with was actually my third because I never knew what anything meant. Using humanity all the time, never upgrading anything, levelling up random stats

I have a dex build with pyro, but he kind of sucks. I might scrap him and just stick with my current str/end/vit build, and make a new faith build. I never made one before but I heard they're boss as ****.

My latest character (currently in NG++) started off as an INT build, but I found that it became massively less effective late into NG+, so I've also dropped some stats into STR and DEX. Currently running around with a Gravelord Sword +4 simply because of "rule of cool".

I started a new character the other day who's going to be a FTH build primarily, but I'm not more than 20 minutes in with that guy.

I want to try NG+ and go as far as I can with my str build. I'm going to level him up as far as I can. I would try it with my Wanderer but I don't think he'll last too long. Such a haphazard build. He did great at the beginning though. Kill Asylum Demon in 2 hits, Taurus in like 4-5.

My current character build is a role play build based on Geralt of Rivia, it's not completely accurate but it's fun and challenging mainly due to the lack of sheild.

Hearing about how hard this game is makes me interested in checking it out. I'm just worried theres a shitton of grinding.

There's little reward for just grinding in Dark Souls

There kind of is grinding if you can call it that. A lot of the bosses are optional, meaning to beat the game you dont have to beat them. Grinding in this game is beating those bosses for souls (exp/money) or items/weapons. It's fun grinding in DS because it isn't your average grinding.

it's not grinding i don't think

it's just exploring/getting (monetary) gains for it

I love this series. Unfortunately I haven't had the time or skills to beat it yet...someday. I found demon's souls got soooo much easier once I beat it once or twice but dark souls has some fights that got me. I am trying to beat it without reading any help or additional info online. Took me forever to try a lightning weapon on Ornstein and Smough...game is so tight tho

2 things -

1) if you don't equip the abysswalker ring or whatever it's called from Sif, you insta-die.

2) keeping attacking the kings as they go through their dying animation - it still takes hp from the big bar, and that's the one that counts.

Also, if you're really struggling, Witch Beatrice's summon is nearby if you used her against Moonlight Butterfly
