The lights are on
This is a group dedicated to the hardest games this generation, the Souls series.
Demon's Souls - I've tried every class at one time or another and settled with the Temple Knight. This was my first successful character to complete the game with. I actually completed the game with my original starting halberd and shield, although I upgraded them of course.
Dark Souls - I originally started out with a Knight but quickly restarted as a Sorcerer. I absolutely dominated parts of the game with my caster and of course got my butt handed to me at other parts. I just recently started a Hunter build, only because I heard that some people were so good with this build that they could dodge every boss attack in this game. I'm about three hours in heading to the depths and knock on wood have not died once. I evaded every attack from the Taurus Demon, Bell Gargoyles, and yes even the Capra Demon. This could be my favorite build.
I did a wanderer for both games. I tried doing a theif in Dark Souls, after I finished, but I quickly found the weaker faster attacks weren't right for me. I'm all about rolling, doing one hitters[two handed], and small combos.
I'm always switching from slow strong weapons like the knight sword, and faster large swords.
I always avoided spears for some reason though, they feel cheap.
Did anyone here ever try a long range build? I'm always curious about it, but it goes against my survival horror instincts.
Long range is all I used in Dark Souls. I had such low health with my Sorcerer and Hunter that I had to stay long range, some enemies could easily 1 shot me. With my Sorcerer I was constantly restricted to lock on range which worked well most of the time. With my Hunter however I was able to snipe guys from a great distance and there's nothing more satisfying than getting a head shot with a bow.
Really? I really fell in love with the melee combat system myself, there's a lot of depth and polish to it, you should give it the old college try, one of these days.
Right now I've got a lvl 14 battlemage. Trying to beat the game under lvl 15. Took down the stray demon and hydra last night. I'm at Sen's Fortress now and it's starting to get tough.
I'm lvl 15 now so I've hit the cap I've created for myself. Took down Orstein & Smough last night. Moving on, next I'm gonna attempt Sif and then onto New Londo. Went to New Londo thinking I'd be able to at least get to the Key of the Seal, but I get taken down stupid fast by the ghosts in the room with the ladder. I must have died over 10 times last night trying to make my way through. No matter what, they let me have it. So I'm gonna have to take a different approach later haha.
Been having a blast with Co Op and PvP, too...and getting tons of souls/humanity doing it, too. Definitely enjoying this playthrough more than my first. :D
Also, what rings do you guys use? I've been using the Ring of F&P since early in the game and bouncing between the Wood Grain ring and Serpent ring...a couple others, too.
Considering taking the ring of F&P off. Good idea?
