I just got to Blighttown and accidentally fell off a cliff trying to loot a corpse.
I thought the Bell Gargoyles were fun, but that may have been because I summoned Solaire and he's an entertaining character. Can't say I know an awful lot about the game mechanics. It does a shitty job of explaining its own systems and I really hope Dark Souls 2 corrects that.
I bought it on Black Friday and have played for like 2 hours but didn't get very far at all. I actually really like the game, I'm just still getting used to the combat system and the overall feel for the game. I really enjoy that the combat feels like you have actual weight to your character--swinging a two handed sword doesn't feel like you're swinging a twig. Unfortunately, Borderlands is consuming all of my gaming time.
You should try the PvP out sometime to, it's another reason people like it, the only downside is that they tried to do Peer-to-peer so there is lagstabbing bs sometimes. Thank God the 2nd one is going to use dedicated servers.
I highly suggest looking on the Dark Souls wiki to learn how the PvP works, but yeah, you may want to wait till a higher level and pro tip for a pvp build: Make sure your Vitality is at 45 or around there so you don't get 1-shotted by AIs on a higher NG and backstab fishers.
Favorite boss: Ornstein and Smough Favorite weapon: Murakumo Favorite armor: Black Iron Set Favorite spell: Homing Crystal Soulmass Favorite area: Painted World of Ariamis Favorite NPC: Black Iron Tarkus
Hmm I liked Ornstien and Smough. It was a unique fight to be sure the Murakumo is kind of bulky for my taste. The Black Knight Armor is better fully upgraded than the Black Iron Set.I never learned very many spells besides pyromancy and the advanced magic weapon spell lol Painted World or Ariamis was amaaaazing Half Breed Priscilla was awesome and Black Iron Tarkus was sort of boring, I liked the mage in New Londo Ruins
I beat it only once. Since I played Demon's souls I found the difficulty just right. Fav bosses (No order): Nito, Gwyn, Four Kings, Quelaag, and Sif Weapon: I mainly used the Bastard sword Armour: Black Knight
I never new there was a Dark Souls 2. I can't wait.
