Re: Official Dark Souls Support Group - Spoilers Inside

I think the DLC is harder than 95% of the regular game. Although that might be because I only got to play the DLC once since my PS3 died shortly after it came out. I could do the main game...

Re: Official Dark Souls Support Group - Spoilers Inside

I've been playing the new content a bit tonight. It's really good; it feels great to come across enemies / bosses that will destroy you in a heartbeat after getting way too familiar with the core...

Re: Official Dark Souls Support Group - Spoilers Inside

I have no problem getting back into Demon's Souls, although Dark Souls is a much more improved experience. The differences aren't that great, but they're just enough to make Dark Souls the better...

Re: Official Dark Souls Support Group - Spoilers Inside

Yeah, magic weapon just enchants your right hand sword/axe/etc. You can only use it on 'plain' weapons; it won't work on Lightning/Divine/Chaos/Boss/Dragon/etc weapons.

If you had it in mind that...

Re: Official Dark Souls Support Group - Spoilers Inside

Wow... I was about to tell you that doesn't work, but after doing some research, apparently it does! Let me know if it makes a large enough difference to be worthwhile.

Re: Official Dark Souls Support Group - Spoilers Inside

I glitched out my first character on New Game+. Wanted to see what a level 450+ was like. Not really as big of a difference as you'd think. Even with maxed out Vitality, any strong enemy / boss can...

Re: Official Dark Souls Support Group - Spoilers Inside

There's a covenant that you can join if you go to the Great Hollow (accessed from the swamp in Blightown) and descend to Ash Lake. One of the items you get is a dragon head. It's normal purpose is...

Re: Official Dark Souls Support Group - Spoilers Inside

It's very interesting that the game's creative director has been apologizing for the game's bugs (or "technical difficulties," as he puts it) and isn't sure if the fans will forgive them. He goes as...

Re: Official Dark Souls Support Group - Spoilers Inside

The other ending you just walk out of the boss area after beating him (don't light the fire, just leave). It's still a pretty brief ending, but it's a little bit cooler. I guess you did the "good"...

Congratulations!

First time I killed Gywn was slapping on Havel's armor, Iron Flesh, and blasting him without care with Great Combustion. I did manage to kill him with parries on my other...

Well, it's completely optional. There's some good treasure to be had in there, but none of it is truly game-changing. The biggest downside is that once you enter, you cannot...

Re: Official Dark Souls Support Group - Spoilers Inside

Yeah, I meant "respawn" in the sense of them not re-assembling right in front of your eyes 5 seconds later. If YOU die or come back later, they will be back. But they can be "killed" so long as the...

Re: Official Dark Souls Support Group - Spoilers Inside

In the Catacombs, if you take out the mage/pyromancer guys (there's maybe 4 total) the skeletons in each section won't respawn. Nor will the mage. Keep that in mind if you'd rather use your more...

Re: Official Dark Souls Support Group - Spoilers Inside

New Londo Ruins isn't too bad. Don't get too carried away with the Transient Curse things. You really only need 3 or 4 (if that) to get through there. They last a long time. Just remember to put on...

Re: Official Dark Souls Support Group - Spoilers Inside

Yeah, it's supposed to be one (specific) trade per game. There was a glitch that probably got patched where you could drop the item, reload, and before picking up the "new" item, drop another one. It...

Re: Official Dark Souls Support Group - Spoilers Inside

You might want to look into Snuggly the Crow. I think he might trade a few if you have the right items.

It's pretty much impossible to max out more than a few items in each playthrough of the the...

Re: Official Dark Souls Support Group - Spoilers Inside

Those archers are the worst part of the game, without question. Everything else is tough but fair; those guys crawl a little too close to the cheap side in my opinion.

The easiest way to take them...

Re: Official Dark Souls Support Group - Spoilers Inside

Yeah, being cursed sucks. The creepy guy that you met after coming back down from killing the Gargoyle boss sells the cure as well, but his are a lot better priced at 2000 or 3000 souls.

You're fine. He only drops the ring when killed. His armor and weapon (Dragon Tooth) is found later on in Anor Londo. It will be a while before you get there, so don't worry, you didn't miss...

Re: Official Dark Souls Support Group - Spoilers Inside

For backstabs, you just need to be pretty much dead center behind them and not be holding your shield up. If you're holding down the guard button, you'll just take a regular swing no matter what.

Re: Official Dark Souls Support Group - Spoilers Inside

Yeah, I would hold off on grinding / leveling for a while. It's not the type of game where you can overpower things by sheer stats. Even at 99 vitality, the Capra Demon will still kill you. It'll...

Re: Official Dark Souls Support Group - Spoilers Inside

The most important thing is to take out the dogs as soon as you can.

Glad you're enjoying it. The first time through the game will be a cherished memory for you.

The second time through, you'll feel pretty badass after you beat the Capra Demon in one shot about...

I played around with the patch a bit last night. I was using my badass pyro-thief that is in the later stages of New Game++. Her Soul Level is in the 130 range.
