    Well, got through the crystal caves and Seathe himself without a single death.


    Spoiler: show

    I did better than I thought I would here. I made more progress after every death and didn't die at any earlier parts once I had made it past there once, except for one time when my lockon didn't lock on so when I went to walk backwards with my shield up, I just turned my back to an enemy. and also when I got sniped by a channeler when I was just looking through my equipment standing in a spot that was a safe spot all the times before.













    Now I just have:

    Sif> drain New Londo> 4Kings
    Bed of Chaos (already killed Ceasless)... I was planning on taking the shortcut, but think I may want to go through Izalith for the challenge (like this whole playthrough isn't one big fucking challenge)
    Catacombs > Tomb of Giants > Niito
    Hydra> All DLC areas
    Stray Demon
    Gwyn

    The fire sage demon in lost izalith might be a challenge depending on how much my magic does to him because of the fire damage, and centipede demon may be an impossibility because I would have to fight him right at the entrance and to my recollection, if you try to fight him there, all he does is stretch armstrong swipe you.

    My first runthrough on that character I made 4Kings my bitch. Granted I had 4x the amount of hp and now he'll have twice as much, I still don't think it'll be too bad unless I get real unlucky with his moveset.
    And I just realized I'm going to have to unequip one of my rings for that fight!

    The trick is not to get hit by the arrows they kill you with.

    yeah, you'd have to do that part dodging all of those arrows, couldn't risk blocking, that's what makes it so nuts

    So, if we're going by my death count, Sif is apparently the hardest boss in the game.
    Spoiler: show

    I always forget this invisible knight dude exists.











    Made it all the way through New Londo without a death. Though I did cheat and snipe Ingward from afar so I didn't have to go into the death house.











    And then after those deaths I realized I had somehow forgotten about the existence of spell that probably would have made the game thus far so much more easier.

    And I decided to record it.

    Seems like summoning Souj is a much better idea

    So, with this character, I think my plan shall be;
    Finish up everything on this run through, all the dlc bosses included, then on NG+2 through 6 I'll just rush through as fast as possible and then NG+7 I'll do another 132HP run and complete everything. Maybe even come up with some other sort of restriction(s) because by then I might be pretty used to the setup and now just how to beat everything with it.

    Is it NG+7(8 games) that the difficulty caps at or is it 7 runthroughs of the game?

    NG+7 is the cap.
    So yes, your 8th playthrough.

    I just picked up Dark Souls today, and I've never played it before. I've also never played Demon's Souls before. Does anyone have any advice for someone starting completely from scratch?

    dont die...

  16. #6736

    That's the absolute worst advice to give someone playing the game for the first time.

    Die, lots, learn, get better, repeat.

    That aside, learn to dodge and backstab well and have a good shield but don't rely on it for everything. Don't obsess over stats or builds on your first character, try out all kinds of weapons/magic and see which you like.

    edit: almost forgot, choose the master key

    for a first time playthough, I;d say don't get the master key.

    You haven't played Dark Souls unless you've ran through the full length of Blighttown at least once.

    The amount of wandering mischief allowed by it is too valuable for a 1st playthrough imo.

    Spoiler: show
    The dragon zombie in the valley was probably my most memorable moment, I wandered there before even going to the burg.

    I really, really hate bed of chaos. They should just patch it out of the game.

    Spoiler: show











    I wasn't making any progress with Nito, so i decided to go back to it later.
    And you know what? Moonlight Butterfly is actually a little bit of a challenge when you can't even block those tiny little darts it shoots without dying.




    And then I went back with a new Divine weapon and made a bunch of stupid mistakes several times in a row, including just falling to my death a few feet away from the bonfire.















    In case you're wondering, I died from falling from too high up.












    I still haven't beaten Bed of Chaos. It made me put the game down.
    All the aggravation I've faced doing this 132hp/double damage run and the thing to make me irritates me the most is a part of the game where HP means nothing. Should have seen it coming I suppose, but god damn, first run through, I got it on the second time.


    Oh, one of the deaths I forgot to take a screenshot of;
    Spoiler: show

    Don't know why I was blocking when I should have been casting my soul arrow.

    I also forgot to record me killing Nito. Was getting a little anxious and impatient with him at the end. I do have about a dozen videos of me dying to him though!
