It's...alright, really. The area has better level design than any other area in DaS2 There's too much artificial difficulty though and most of the new items are shit. The only good item is Flynn's ring and everything else is useless
Some cool new enemies A more aggressive nashandra that uses forbidden sun and summons bellboy and golden skellingtons An optional Ganksquad boss the reward for which is a really out of place dress A dragon boss who's easy as shit if you've played Monster Hunter
>>257105984 It's pretty good. The level design is better than anything in the entire base game, although it's got the most boring color palette in the entire world and the game is still insistent on putting Bonfires every ten feet and having you unlock shortcuts between them for some retarded reason.
Was disappointed by the boss design, however. Enemy design fares better, and it's interesting that the DLC enemies are some of the very few that don't track your movement like spinning retards, so you can actually just backstab everyone a la Dark 1.
Also bring Seed of the Giant Tree because invasions are a huge bitch in the level. Never died up to regular enemies but invaders ruin my day.
I liked the level design, and some of the enemies were pretty cool like the ghost guys. The bosses sucked pretty bad except the dragon which had a monster hunter feel to it. The new items are ok, nothing that great.
>>257107185 Of the minions, only Velstadt couldn't be two-shotted with either of the characters I brought (Technically my brawler could one-shot the skeletons, if you consider power stance attacks one attack).
How is the second one unusual for the series? Bosses with loads of health that hit like trucks is nothing new.
>>257107609 Discounting everyone who was bitter that it went multiplat, I'd say the vast majority of people liked Dark Souls. They might prefer Demon's Souls (if they're stupid), but the issues with Dark Souls 1 were more subtle than its sequel.
It won /v/'s best gameplay award in the year it came out, back when people actually gave a shit about the awards because it was novel and hadn't yet become a horrible abomination.
>>257108245 >Enemies with super high poise. They stagger you in one hit, even if you are wearing full Havel's >First obligatory boss fight summons Velstadt and teleports behind you while you are busy dodging his attacks >Second obligatory boss fight forces you to roll (if you have shit ADP you are fucked). Its attacks cannot be blocked >Optional boss fight forces you to fight 3 NPC at the same time. One of them fires greatarrows from a distance, the other one is havel and hits hard as fuck and the other one is one fast motherfucker.
Also all the bosses have a lot of HP and they are unoriginal as all fuck. Elana's got the same backstory as Nashandra because From was too lazy to come up with something original. The gank squad are a bunch of cosplayers. At least Sinh was kind of original
>>257108408 No. But you can do this. Do this step by step though.
open ds2 in ce new scan for 0 right click on first result open memory browser right click on second line go to address replace value with DarkSoulsII.exe+4853E7 and click ok double click on first line change jb to jmp and click ok and yes
sit at your bonfire in Majula and new scan for 4650 then teleport to Hidden Chamber and next scan for 25660 2 results should show then simply change the two results to 35650 use a homeward bone or aged feather
Don't close CE or the memory browser. If you are stuck on a infinite load screen because you didn't rest at the DLC bonfire after teleporting to it just switch both results to 4650 and wait a bit.
>>257107008 Don't think it would've been fun for white phantoms to just activate everything and carry the host through the area without him seeing any switch interactions then again red phantoms can't either so they're usually stuck and cant reach the host. from had to struck a balance which they didnt
>>257110308 it's not like you can't roll with low agi, you just need to time it better as you have less i-frames there are plenty of bosses you can't just block your way to victory in the main game too
>From promises no DLC >slaps it up from content that should have been in the game >t-thank you based From, GOTY >From promises no DLC >actually, we could get something done >makes shit from scratch >KEK JEWSOFT LAZY FROM AT IT AGAIN
for all you people that complain about sihn and cant roll or some shit, use: poisonbite ring+1 flame stone ring +2 flame sweat (recast if needed) Optionally some flame resistant armor set and he will barely take 20% off your max hp and barely poison you, you can just chug estus after anyways
>>257108984 But god did they do a terrible job at making the Sihn fight.
>NG+ >Summon both phantoms. >One gets killed while the Dragonbro keeps chipping at Sihn. >I'm just sitting there. >Flinging heat seeking Sunlight Spears at Sihn while chomping on herbs like I just turned vegan. >They literally bounce off in the air and hit Sihn while he's flying away. >Dragonbro just takes a sippy at continues chipping at Sihn.
The only time when Sihn didn't pay attention to Dragonbro he would try to fry me alive but luckily he doesn't repeat the same attack pattern twice.
/v/ i... i just killed onion bro... It was mistake, he was sitting there and there was this silver knight and onion bro was in the way, i had to kill him, he went full hostile on me. Is there any way to resurrect onion bro??? ;_;
>>257112918 >>257112957 It's an ogre that cannot be seen or heard, so there is no way to know it's there. Once you approach the wall it will use its bite attack which will definitely kill you unless you are wearing full havel's
>>257113230 the ogre can't be heard unless you are wearing the ring of whispers it's because there are 2 ogres before it that you will think there is NO other ogre. >>257113259 I'm talking about the first time you go there
>>257113559 No. the whole DLC universe area is set in the time during vendricks memory, so right after the fall of the kingdom, or right before it... and before the invasion of the gaints possibly A drangleic crest can be found inside the last area of the DLC, vendrick sent his soldiers to kill the dragon
>>257113481 >progressing through the game is considered "yolo" now
>>257113560 >I actually saw him through the bars I'm talking about the one that's behind that ogre
there is an ogre that can be seen from the bars in the door and it's pretty obvious that it will break the wall (because it was in the old demo) and after that one there is another ogre that cannot be seen
>>257113560 >I actually saw him through the bars He measn the other ogre. Hes behind a door afer a door which was the biggest tell in the universe. >place filled with enemies that can smash down doors >just fought off a few and open a door >what? another door immediately after? >no way in hell its another ogre, yolo
Final boss fight OST is pretty good. If ppl paid attention to the story, the queen that sang to the dragon (2nd boss fight) was keeping it asleep. She fucked everything up like how the first queen bitch w/ Vendrick did. So all the DLCS revolve around a queen fucking shit up.
Really dark souls 2 is mostly people fucking shit up cause they don't step back and consider the long term of their actions besides Vendrick
>>257113894 Vendrick was also an idiot >random woman comes out of nowhere and tells him "vendrick go kill the giants" and vendrick is like "woah she's hot, better do what she says so she marries me later"
>>257114954 >Long ago the queen came to us, alone, from a faraway land, she warned our lord of the looming threat across the seas... of the giants. The king crossed the oceans... and defeated the giants
>>257117428 I was wondering about that. Shame too, since the concept around the Mirror Knight boss was great. Probably my favourite boss in the game. And I don't normally invade people so getting summoned by the boss was cool. It would've been great too if you could do it with Elana
>>257117913 >Makes me laugh when all these kids come on to these types of video claiming to have defeated her first time. You probably did it on a normal NEW GAME with a level 800 for crying out loud, I HIGHLY doubt any of you killed her first time on NG++. Please, stop trying to prove how good you are online because honestly NO ONE cares at all. Thanks. He mad
