    Dark Souls 2 also has big black spots where they forgot to put things. Check out any of the precipices in the King's Castle.

    The Drangleic Castle skybox also had an on-again off-again relationship with the game, from what I remember.

    It's kinda comforting that, two years ago or so, I've started from this


    and now, in the span of one month, I've taken on all the Souls games there are (hopefully)

    Tomb of the Giants is the best. Except for that room with divine ember.
    It also lets you see both Izalith and Ash Lake.

    I'm trying to replay Dark Souls but I get huge frames drop all over the place
    Is this a common issue? I've reinstalled the game and I'm using the DSFix

    using DSFix, use the "Unlock framerate" option and then set your max fps to 30

    for me it stopped it from jumping down to 15fps randomly and instead kept it at 30

    what this does is, it doesn't rely on the poorly coded fps cap, and instead caps it at 30 another way

    Last time I played ds1 on my PC, I had my game set to 42 or 45 (not 60 cause engine/rollingBS) and it was always pretty dang steady. And this was when I was running a Radeon 6870. Also I never had any problems with 60 fps either. Maybe I just got lucky?

    if it doesn't work try an external cap and just set the fps limit to 60 or whatever in DSfix, then cap it externally

    nvidia inspector (or amd equelviant) or set vsync to half

    I might try this in hopes of my game no longer dropping frames whenever I have another window opened

    Suppose I'm going for an "Ornstein build" in Dark Souls, how should I level up dexterity AND faith for the titulat spear?
    My plan was to reach 40 dexterity (and levelling up vitality and endurance along) and then start to increase faith
    Instead, I could level up strenght as the second stat in order to equip more massive shields

    If it's an Ornstein build you don't use shields

    28 faith for Wrath of the Gods. Don't forget 12 attunement for Great Magic Barrier + WoTG, just to piss off sorcerers that much more

    After playing on and off since September, I can officially say I've beaten Dark Souls today

       But I'm still a scrub because I cooped with a friend through 80% of it   

    Regardless, I'm definitely a fan of the series now and I plan on getting Bloodborne and Dark Souls 3 at some point. This game wasn't as daunting once you start understanding the mechanics and get a feel for how enemies generally behave.

    So, Dark Souls 3 weapons spoilers but;
       My second favourite strength weapon the Large Club has allegedly returned according to an icon and item description. It has a "crude" jump attack and its weapon art is a roar that increases attack power for a limited time. The roar may also 'manipulate' its strong attack. I think this is the first evidence of weapon arts actually changing movesets (aside from weapon arts being moves themselves)?   

       The claymore is my favourite strength weapon and it's confirmed to be returning as well (hope it looks like the DS1 version with the quatrefoils.) Apparently its sword art is the ready stance, same as that of the standard short/long swords.   
       There's also a saw cleaver apparently. Appears in an undead town area, but it is allegedly different to Bloodborne's. It's cool seeing Miyazaki throw in elements from all the games

    Someone explain to me why people 'generally' stop at SL ~ 150 for darksouls 2, isnt your soul memory gonna still increase wen you kill people (without that ring) therefore putting you in higher level range tiers anyway? What benefit is it to stop leveling up?

    It's just people trying to set rules for "honorable" pvp like it's an esport or something.

    So I'm currently throwing myself at the Fume Knight despite having work today. Which I should totally get some sleep for.

    Why the fuck is powerstancing a caestus working against him so well? I can consistently get him to phase two with no work involved. All my other weapons give me a fair amount of pain to do that. I then get thoroughly wrecked by the weird timing on phase 2.

    150 to 200 gives you enough levels to create pretty much whatever build you need with minimal grinding

    It's for when you just want to do blood arena since I think it only takes level into account

    I'd say ignore any rules that people come up with pvp, because it's all such bullshit. PvP can be a lot of fun, but with all the lag and weird rules you might as well just play a fighting game if you want a true pvp experience.

    On my first playthrough, I accidentally dodged off the ledge, and he followed me. Good thing I still had dreams
