Somewhat related, the Kickstarter for the Dark Souls Board game started today and already made 5x its goal of $70k. The game is 1-4 players, and features enemies and bosses from all 3 games.

Seems that the miniatures will only be 1 1/4" (32mm) in size, which is smaller than what I expected. Well I wasn't expecting action figures, but they should be at least 2" tall.

I'm getting seriously deep at this point on my highest level, about level 60 atm on my STR toon about half way through I think. Character is rock solid doing well with the occasional wtf that was dirty From moment or new mob type. Got several alts in the 20-30's. So I decided tonight to roll another alt to ***** around since I was tired. Love me some alting.

You should finish the game at least once, then use an alt to go after the other endings. How many of the infusion coals have you found yet?

They switched the stretch goals layout from text to Bandai Namco approved images of the final product, so you should take a look. 3 Alonne Knight Captains and 2 Crystal Lizards, along with cards and spinners have now been unlocked, with Four Kings being next. Also 3 Dragon add-ons have been unlocked (Gaping, Guardian, and Kalameet) which are 15cm in size. The current "Retailer Only" Add-Ons are Last Giant, Manus, and Executioner's Chariot (at 200 Retailer backers).

All of them I think? I respeced my highest guy last night dropped my vitality to default 11 which freed up a ton of points for vigor and endurance. Swapped my mostly STR (38) to a balance of STR/DEX. for something like:

Vigor 26
End 26
STR 28
Dex 28

All a bit higher now since I got a few levels after. Then I forged a refined (Quality) longsword +6 and put on assassin set, chain helm + Shield of Want with a compound bow.
Holy Shinballs! My character is way stronger now. I was finding I barely used any of my uber str weapons like great ax or black knight ax because they are too dang slow. The great shields I was just not digging the look. So I was using my medium shields and heavy dark sword +6 anyway since most mob fights are: look for opening STUN LOCK until out of stam, (if needed/giant mob)roll/block away, repeat.

AR on longsword is almost as high as the dark sword it uses less stam and now I have health and stamina for days. As long as I am rolling under 70% I can barely tell the difference so all of that Vitality was a waste stat to me for most of my armor. It seems like having more HP to soak is more effective than heavy armor to me by far. As I push into the end 1/3 of the game we will see how it holds up but in the zone I am in I have gone from: "crap crap crap it 2 shot me" to "get some lololol I wrekt you ithryll guard guy.

Good times.

Git gud ******** Here is my git gud story where I felt the magic and was touched in my naughty feelz:

I'm doing some sunbro work on Pontiff on my quality long sword guy. Not because I need too I have like 50 embers and 50 sunbro medals. I was just buzzed up and having fun.

I get summoned. I see a red just wailing into the host. I immediately engage. He does not like how it is going and makes a run for it. I pursue. I catch him right after he estuses and he starts turtling up hard. Oh I got you now son. I use longsword r2 skill and scoop his shield sending him staggering. It's over for him now snicker snack I vorpal sword his last half a life bar.

I run back to the host who flops emote on the ground in exhaustion. The red totally had him before he panicked summoned me. He did not even help me fight the red he was so freaked out. After he calmed down we proceed to pwn the boss. I was born a sunbro, and I will die a sunbro.

So far I have killed the following bosses/mini-bosses:


Deacons of the Deep aka The Congregation 2.0
Crystal Sage aka Pinwheel 2.0
Stray Demon (glitched into a non-moving state and arrowed to death)
Fire Demon (second verse same as the first)
Curse-Rotted Greatwood
Vordt of the Boreal Valley aka Sif/RRA 2.0
Generic Armored Humanoid aka Tutorial Boss #5a


Do those tar snakes that grow from G.A.H. and a random enemy get explained later in the game?

Not so far as I know. Maybe ENB will figure it out. I'm alting a bit again because I don't want to finish. But I got to a place yesterday that made me kind of emo. Not sure why but I was just like "This is not right, get out of here you new mobs you don't belong here!" I'm not going to spoil tag it because it won't have meaning until you see it. But once you do you will get it.

Also holy crap faith build alt blows so far. I mean in one sense it's nice to have some h o t 's on top of the estus. But when I got lightning spear finally I was very excited until I cast it and it does less damage than a non upgraded crossbow. Also there are **** for holy weapons. I'm trying to go spear/halberd to stick with the class style of Herald. I used a halberd all the way until I got my first holy spear. I upgraded it to +4 and it does less damage than the halberd + 3...

They need to patch in some diversity here. Also sorry Pol I was wrong spells suck too after midgame. I'm hoping some patching works some of that out becuase estoc and straight swords pretty much dominate right now. I love both those weapons but I want to enjoy variety as well.

You think they would buff Lightning Spear again after they nerfed the **** out of it in DS2? Most likely Faith in this game will only be for Fire and Dark spells/weapons.

I just don't get it. I mean magic and faith both require you to basically split primary stats harder in order to be mediocre, but it's worse than mediocre. It's just straight up bad. All you need is vig, end, str, and dex and you will rock the **** out of everything.

I know I am whining a bit here because my quality guy is like a golden god and I can pretty much finish the game as soon as I want, but replay value is important to me and I like trying all the builds. It's early though maybe Trusty Patches will fix it. You can always trust Patches right?

Warning the spoilers are the names of late game bosses. You can maybe read the post without clicking them if those names will bother you.

Geebus F ing BBQ, no one can fight the Dancer. It's the worst thing to sunbro ever. 6 hosts in a row all died. I did it after maybe 3-4 attempts in my own world and sure it's weird and lanky and awkward as all **** but man if you are hosting just stay the F back for Pates sake. Don't hero right into the grab over and over.

lmao I love this game. What's really cruel is going right from Aldritch that cheap dirty bastich to the Dancer with no "hey fun new area to loot or explore" in between. **** From, that was cruel and unusual.

But still as much as I am ******** I do think this game is on par with some of the best souls. It's an exhausting journey. As it should be. I'm sure on my 400-500 hour I will look back with that golden glow and think what a casul I still was then.

I respecced again to bump my faith up to high enough to use sunlight sword and it's just so nice to have my glorious incandescence back! The skill on the thing is a huge buff to attack/defense and stacks with blessed weapon. Had I known it's location earlier I would have been real tempted to invoke the Dancer fight earlier. Plus I never would have spent twinkling to level crappy boss weapons that look cool but are impractical for my style.

I did end up getting it to +4 after scrambling to find every last twinkling left in the game practically. Of course the zone where I got the last two has ashes that unlock more twinkling in the vendor. Also I am super flush with chunks now that I don't really need them, Lothric castle is like chunk city. I don't have a slab yet becuase I killed one to many bosses and it screwed up the Seigy quest line. Smiley: glare **** fussy NPC quest lines sheez. I might not go full slab though becuase of how matchmaking works until NG+. Apparently full upgrade is a at the tier breaking point and you can cut off your matchmaking from a large portion of society.

I think I got maybe 3 bosses left and one optional that is opened up and ready as soon as I am in the mood to tackle it after work tonight.

Pyromancer is pretty shweet. Fire spells, fire ax(with starter gift), early enhancement rings,access to both mage and priest utility spells. The starter fireball casts faster and hits harder than soul arrows. I'm thinking this is the class to start with for Pol. And because you can respec, you could essentially just convert to pure mage if you wanted later on when mages get good (at like 50-60 INT.)

Anyway enjoying this alt to delay finishing the last zone on my main guy.

I kind of remembered that might of been the case. Tearing it up so far on pyro this weekend. Very nice change of pace from my quality straight sword guy. .

Haven't made much progress due to work scheduling, but I've somehow turned my Thief class into the Assassin class. Katana, 100% DEF shield, Long Bow, Hidden Body and Spook, with Assassin Clothes and Theif Mask head.

Also I would like to mention how happy I am they combined the silent footsteps and no fall damage spells into one (Spook). I cast it and throw myself into the Pit of Hollows just for fun.

Spook is a great spell. Love it.

My pyro caught up to and surpassed my quality guy. They are both ready to finish the game as soon as I want. But I do not want. So I rolled a new spear herald. The theme for this one is spears onry. Though shalt not be tempted by halberds, though shalt use dex/fth and fth and dex shall thought use.

My spear character is bad and makes me feel bad. I totally keep thinking it is going to get better. I even farmed a Lothric Knight spear thinking it would be all uber. It takes 8-9 pokes to kill anything at +3 in Farron... Think I should finish the last zone on my other two characters soon.

Did you get the spear from the Cursed Greatwood boss? You can wear it on your back and still get the HP restore effect, then you just have to stack it with the rings that drain/restore HP on hits/kills.

Not a bad idea. I was kind of thinking of making a blessed spear/shield/ring regen monster character. That spear is so ugly though. I want a holy heraldy type spear. Smiley: frown

In other news I decided to push on with my pyro. On second to last boss with one optional left. It's funny how much I can hate an area and then after I am like. Wow that area was pretty cool. Grand Archives was like that. I still hate the Farron swamp though, even after 4-5 toons it still takes me forever to clear that place.

It's a cross with vines over it, it doesn't get more holy than that in game.

Not as far as I know, think you just need 1 copy these days. Also done. Beat the last boss on my pyro at SL99.

My super brief review: I liked it. I enjoyed it more than Bloodborne. BB is just so relentless on the grimdark, and come on we all know the chalice dungeons were a pure joy killer.

So yeah DS3? Thumbs up. It's hard for me to place it in the pantheon, I've just played so much dmS-ds2 that I'm still a bit biased. Maybe for DS2 to be honest although the fancool kids like to say without Myazaki there is no souls blah blah. But I'm not done yet with DS3. I should try those last areas on my quality guy to see how much I started crutching on great chaos and dark orbs.

And that spear guy will git gud someday, I just know it!

I was cool with the grimdark, but the chalice dungeons can go suck a lemon.

So I tried the Dancer and got my *** two-shotted each attempt. Gave up and fought the Abyss Watchers and beat them on the second try. I thought I beat it on the first try, then the cutscene played and I was respawned directly next to the second form and died instantly. Summoned a NPC for the second try and used it to backstab the boss to death.

It does look cool maybe I will try it on my Dex guy at some point, let me know how you like it. I rolled another toon tonight and decided to start with sellsword. Swapped the starter swords with the katana and cleared all the way through Abyss watchers. My muscle memory with the katana from 3 games helps as well. Even rocked through Farron swamp with only one death, finally know where I am going there. Because I lost no souls I made it into the level 30's in a couple hours. Smiley: eek

Oh and don't worry about Dancer. That fight screws everyone up with the off kilter timing and movement angles. Plus the grab and the 3/4 of the room spin. Yeah Dancer takes some getting used to. *Edit: You should prolly go to the zone behind the watchers next though if you have not yet.

Got to Smoldering Lake last night, kind of sad that Ash Lake burst into flames after Lost Izalith was found. I also found out that "The Spice Must Flow!".
