So if I wanted to drop myself 99 Cracked Red Eye Orbs on my Dhalsim cosplay (I'm bored of farming them through the combination of shitty internet and using the vanquisher's seal), what's the chance that I would get banned?
As a separate question, I'm also missing a piece of armor that would complete the cosplay, but it the fucking thing will not goddamn drop. What about that?
I guess no one exactly knows what can get you banned, right?
>GIANT ENEMY CRAB HAS INVADED
>this fucking thing shows up
>beats the shit out of me
I'm not even mad. This is awesome.
nth for why havent you played the A-team version of dark souls 2?
Who here wants to get their shit kicked in?
because I gotta play the first one...well, first.
On a side note, bones.
>using that horrible preset

This fucking guy right here.
Can you nerds stop falling for this b8, report and move the fuck on.
Please put "/dsg/" in the title. Come on man.
So, I'm terribly, terribly drunk right now, and high on adderall. Just finished my weekly D&D game and I'm feeling good. Can I draw anything for you, /dsg/? Don't expect quality.
Hey guys, what weapons should I use with my Sl 838 build?
our hacker e-celebs have reported having been banned on at least one account, cliffy says he has two banned accounts.
from is just incredibly inconsistent with softbans. which supports the theory that they are hand-issued.
I don't know, I use CE online and I have no problems
Maybe the ban is only if your soul memory exceeds the SL, like someone said?
cause I'm 150 with metacap and I'm just adding items
>mfw speedhacking online for the first time
I have tasted the forbidden fruit, and its juices are sweet.
To the guy I was arguing with a while ago about life +2 vs quartz +2.
If you're using a weapon without innate elemental damage then infusing it will get it 50/50 split before the buff. When buffing if the weapon is at 116.66/116.66 you'll end up with a 35/65 split (116.66/216.66). Below 11.6 favors elemental damage, above favors physical. Since most weapons will definitely be above that point you'll still need a lot of resistance before quartz +2 surpassing life +2. For example a chaos blade is 175/175, after a buff the split is 37/63 (175/292.5). Of course this isn't counting scaling.
Either way, like you said, once you lose the bonus health from life +2 swapping to a quartz +2 is always better.
Starting my second character, going dex and int, a few questions
What strength level should I go for as a minimum to wield weapons early on? I am stuck with the dagger atm
What do I need to know as a beginner to sorceries?
Also are there any covenants that go well with dex/int?
>speedhacking against trainer babies
>speedhacking against sl 838 bridge gankers
>speedhacking against dual spears monscim metashitters
Oh it feels so good.
There are no uncorrupted priestesses we see, so how she looks will be up to your discretion.
By the way guys, if you use buffs, you can cycle in the ring that increases buff duration when you cast the buff and cycle in another ring and keep the bonus buff duration. There's basically no reason not to do this other than laziness
No. You know how santa sometimes drops a billion +14 transgressor's staves around bonfires so you risk accidentally picking one up? And dropped items now stay there even after you leave the area, die or restart the game, so that bonfire becomes a minefield forever? You can make them disappear if you drop 30 individual lifegems and clean the area.

>Is the plume more important than the lion face?
In my opinion, yes.
god these crossbow R2's are insane, you can snipe people out of roll because they roll too early and the hitbox is huge, so is the projectile.. and satisifying as fuck, it feels like you're firing a missile
It wasn't even a shenanigan, it was just a +10 drakekeeper's greathammer.
is there any reason to min max armor except for the bonus stuff?
since poise is still useless against anything wielded two handed and resistance feeling kind of useless you might as well roll helm of choice + jester + engraved + new sneaky fall boots
I love these cospoors. Can't think of any clever ones myself. Most I could think of was Crossbread Pamela in archdrake robes, bright blue hair and a full moon sickle or something. Maybe Excellent Charley. Lucatiel's hat, pardoner coat? I got nothing.
>dex and int
>What strength level should I go for as a minimum to wield weapons early on?
it tells you on the item you wanna use
i get 10 STR at first for equip requirements plus later it means you can 2hand weapons which require up to 20 STR
That helm would look a lot better if you were hallowed. Are the sanctum knights hollow? I've never gotten a good look at their faces.
You haven't seen any
gudpeople then. If you ignore poise at least go for armor with good elemental resistances. You can often give up like 5 physical reduction for 10% elemental.
>SANTA IS STILL DONATING TO MVG

How do you take screenshots that show the effects of gedosato+GEM? I've tried steam's screenshots, gedosato's screenshots, and just having FRAPS running apparently causes the injector to fail completely.
This actually works, I can take screenshots of my game with Gedo and SweetFX visible.
I usually play in windowed mode so that I can read /dsg/ while playing, which is why I use the quickscoping tool
You'll probably have better luck when the almost everyone stops playing. I only go to the arena because bridge people a shit, and I still rarely find someone that's not relying on their gear to win.
Yep, just tried it and it worked. Thanks anons.
It should. Test it. I'm actually pretty sure you can get a rapier parry while power stanced if you dual wield the Warped Sword in the left and the Rapier in the right, which is cool.

Will using the mule in the pastebin get me banned? Alternatively, if I use the mule on a different account that has been granted rights to play the game, if that account gets banned, will any or all linked accounts be banned?
W-We have them
Saw that guy streaming but never went in his channel, is he any good?
Most people on Facebook think I'm a little girl, don't want to show them the rude truth like that
>Most people on Facebook think I'm a little girl, don't want to show them the rude truth like that
>Saw that guy streaming but never went in his channel, is he any good?
Yeah, I find him pretty entertaining.
It can get a bit monotonous at times when he gets stuck on one part, or dicks around with no progress, but they aren't too common.
Also it helps if you like the variety of games he plays, which I happen to.
when a mans' word can't be taken seriously nowadays, geez..
What does /dsg/ think of my thief fashion?
Manikin shield (because I like to earn my parries, thanks)
shit, Sinh is a tough guy. I broke 3 weapons while fighting with him, and I'm kind of high level (120sl, 1mln sm first run). Also no human phantom seems willing to do some jolly coop in the dlc..
MVG regularly pulls in thousands of viewers. Unrestricted chat can get problematic, especially when he often asks them for advice.
I invaded him way back in NG and he was suprisingly cool about it

We need to take em down at the source
This man is your friend.
Are you doing your part and freeing him from his cold prison in other peoples worlds?
Only my claymore is, but my damage output with it was always enough to deal with every boss/area without having to change anything
Guess I'll think about upgrading pursuer greatsword or the bigass club, I have a 40/40
Haven't played in a few months and I noticed they dropped a balance patch. Is the pvp any better?
Eh Idk he and his friend were laughing most of the time, unless i missed something near the end. I mean yea it gets annoying after a while but most twitch players just laugh because its funny
They started laying game-crashing signs down.
the FC could not continue without them crashing every time they walked over the wrong sign, at the same time cliffy and some other guy was constantly invading and getting them almost every time.
Navlaan cosplay is fun as fuck
I've never actually got him to invade me though, so I have no clue what kinda spells he uses. Maybe I should do the trick that lets invaders pull the switch to let Navlaan out
Touching up my Hexing Warlock. What do you guys think of my fashion souls?
>cliff racer disguises himself as one of them
>they're constantly paranoid every sign will be him afterwards
That's all good and everything. As long as he doesn't have 7 ADP.
I love the Claymore, I just think it's a little weak this time. Even with 40/40
I just wish one of the "higher tier" versions had Claymore's moveset. All those twirly 2h GS movesets fucking suck

Fucking hell. I wish I'd never left Lordran.
Always stay away from Iron keep; there's some better summons at Heide's and I've had really good invasions at the Tseldora campsite
That campsite should've really been the go-to place for duels, summons don't need to travel too far, there's a bonfire nearby, and the environment is good for battles.
Agreed. But I think a stronger sword with clay's moveset would make the other greatsword useless.
BKGS has the same 1hand moveset and it's good looking (extremely important in das weapon choice), but its high stamina consumption doesn't make it worth for me.
>not just gitting gud with one weapon
Using multiple weapons is a good thing to do, it makes certain encounters much easier. But learning how to beat every weapon and playstyle with one weapon will make you significantly better at pvp.
Yeah I was in love/hate relationship with DGS pre-nerf. I hated the 2h moveset but it had like 150-200 more AR than anything else so it felt dumb not to use it.
If I can't have Bestmore moveset I guess I'll have to settle for the Bastard sword moves.
I think Mastodon has the same one.
Why the fuck are you so mad you dingus? I never said I thought they were funny but the twitch streamers usually do. Jesus fuck a nigger must've bent you over and cast infinite rapid fire forbidden suns up your ass or something.
Fucking way of baby blues

Jesus fuck you people.
Pyromancy is a complementary magic.
You aren't really meant to go 30/30 with it, that's just the best spread for using Pyromancy with other magic.
Pyromancy can be used by any character, but is especially effective with people who are already casters, because of how Fire bonus works.
It''s not that much of a loss to go 1/8.
i might enjoy tossing a few thousand great chaos fireballs in your general direction, but i would never do more than that to someone i knew was from here.
I really wish From would've done more with Doors of Pharros. I mean excluding the optional area, its just a straight walk past two stupidly weak Gyrms.
Don't say the forbidden word anon, or you'll get b
Whenever a hacker came in he would cut off the feed and put a placeholder screen on while he said stuff like "yeah I totally owned this hacker, yep andddd owned" when he was actually alt f4ing or something, we never really got any view of what was really happening from all bones jones.
Then someone with a black dragon sword r1 spammed and won, then after he did the secret gesture, he was like HACKER HACKER
It was entertaining seeing this guy get rekt by hacks even when he used to use new londo teleportation weapons to send invaders there
Let's play a game of guess the shitty cosplay.
I thought that the Black Witch Staff was so superior because it has godly innate casting speed; I guess I'll have to test whether or not it's a serious difference in casting time on Great Resonant Soul and some other stuff. Either way a Dark Caitha's and Sunset Staff won't be too much trouble to cycle in.
Profound Still would take so many god damn spices. Should I go for 2 Scraps of Life over 1 Darkstorm? As for Great Heal, I can swap that in whenever I please; I just want to mess around with Chameleon a bit.
>Lion Mage gear
Don't even bother, after around 150 cast speed, you'll see very little to no difference except for things like great heal. Plus it makes your character look really generic; I cannot count the amount of times I've seen people with the set on.
Use something else, like chaos or black witch for dat insane elemental resistance.
I just wanna mule so I don't need to make and farm a 10th pvp fucking character. This is why I preferred DS1, you could just throw together a build without wasting a shitton of time.
You ain't m8.
Catarina is in completely legal specs.
>Some random summons me
>Don't realize I have a mic plugged in
>He keeps asking me why I'm not talking
>I stay silent thinking he meant the other phantom he had summoned
Thanks for making me remember that, shit was awkward
>the sound of a thrusting sword 2HR2
So much power behind that poke.
I think it must be fucked up, with 50 attunement and 40/40 for faith and int on my build, I have nearly 300 cast speed.
If you've actually got the build made in DaS 2, press Y/Triangle on your equipment screen and it should give you your current cast speed. Make sure you are hovering over no equipment when you press Y though

Felt fucking good.
Considering the nature of speedhacking, could you theoretically make yourself insanely slow?
Only applies to certain thrusting swords.
>spider silk (dex)
What the fuck is the timing for guard break and parry ripostes? I see people come up to me and it feels like I'm laying there far longer than people do when I stun them and the timing just seems completely different. Am I just retarded?
Mailbreaker is so based now, the thing really needed a buff
I guess you could, don't people speedhack by using the CE option and removing the check that kicks you from online?
Guard break recovery is much faster than after a parry. If you guard break someone, you need to riposte him quickly or he'll roll away. With a parry you can change your weapon, go drink a cup of tea and he'll still be on the ground.
>he sturdy, slender long blade is designed to pierce the armor of enemies, and its strong attack can even inflict damage upon foes hiding behind shields
Aside from being terribly unoptimized, can anyone tell me what rings and maybe what spells might help this build?
I've considered gower's because my spells can be easily punished by a backstab, and at that health and defense, backstabs are generally always a kill. But gower's weighs so much that nothing short of raising VIT can bring me under 50%, and I don't want to mess around with stats. Considered waiting for the magic and fire clutch rings, but I'm uncertain.
As for spells, I've always had mixed feelings about them. Affinity bait to css can end a fight, though at times it feels like it can be too easily avoided. There's a wog for that if they get too close. Some people don't expect that, and it kills them. I heard good things about fireball to forbidden fun, but have yet to try it. The slot cost is pretty damn high, and sometimes it feels like it barely does any damage. Blinding bolt gets praised, along with heavenly thunder, but I barely ever managed to make great use of them. Often paid with a backstab for it. HHSA is just good, and soul greatsword works through walls and can be used as a follow up after guard breaks.
Not using weapons or shields. That's just silly. Sometimes bashing people with the staff or pyromancy flame can help.
sorry mate, they cant do that. saves are completely client side.
good try though.
M-Maybe Josh Homme plays Dark Souls. That would be cool.
I'll never understand why streamers feel the need to show themselves on-screen during their streams. It's not like they do anything but sit there and talk, they don't need to have their face taking up space
I would kill for some Scottish baps right now
Not even lying.
I cheated in 99 red orbs and changed my name. I start the game and everything is as it should be, character has the new name and stuff, then I stop seeing signs, so I reestart the game and then servers are down, so I go to sleep. I come back and my character has its previous name and 2 red orbs instead of 99.
It was not nothing serious, I changed my name many times before and it only got back to the latest, maybe a couple of hours back.
you have two types of streamers
the ones who are good and get watched to copy and learn their techniques and the others are just cam whoring
they are not really good at any particular game because they always play FOTM and their viewers only watch to see the streamers reactions. the gameplay is secondary
Ctrl+A them then use red arrow to put them in the bottom menu
Also press enter to change the value of all at once (Although it doesn't work if they are different types, like string & byte)
>9. Use, leave or discard 1 of your item to make the game recognize that you changed the value.
Ok, nevermind, I actually changed the name of one of my other characters that had the same name, so both if both characters were named "fag" I changed one of them to "faggot", so in char select both were "faggot", then when I used the other and reestarted the name it probably reverted the name back to "fag".
I just freaked out.
> tfw blinding bolt
> tfw blinding bolt with nowhere to run
> no shield
> there is nothing i can do but to take the hits
that thing can be pretty mean at the right spot
and for some reason i ALWAYS get hit by that shit.
If you have nowhere to run when they cast blinding bolt, roll past them and backstab them. You'll take some damage but you'll be invincible during the end of the animation and you'll just have fucking backstabbed that spamming asshole.
So why aren't you using the best weapon in the game?
My face when every single fightclub I've been a part of has been crashed by some epic meme kid throwing corrosive urns.
I watching a streamed one yesterday that had like 8 viewers and was camped by two separate corrosive urn shitters.
So many shitters with a pastebinned script trying to be the next epic e-celeb by crashing streams. Remember when we were just going after dickheads?
>No one's found a way to get around soft bans yet other than having to make a family account
>No one's discovered and created an accurate list of what constitutes towards getting soft banned
Jesus fuck, what do I pay you people for?
Guys, I'm kinda new to the game. Which Hexes are a must-have for maximum hexer dickery?
Me and my friend found the new hostility values/pointers last night, any way to add these to the paste bing, also how to appear as a world host without glitch in gout when you die, still able to damage host?
I wish people would know of your days of spreading joy, and cheer. You punished a couple awful streamers who are known to be shitters on this community, some cheaters and you're apparently worse than Hitler.
I still love you Santa
There was a way to actually disable the softban temporarily (Until you load an area, or something)
What you do is search for your steam account name while in game and edit the value in the box.
Any way to just port around to all the bonfires?
Idc If I get softbunned i'll just make a family share I just dont want to play through this shitty game for the 7th time and invading NG+ at heides is getting boring

COPYING FROM LAST THREAD:
ATTENTION CE WIZARDS AND SOFTBANNED PEOPLE:
Load up DaS2, head to Iron Keep bridge, quit game.
Get to the main menu, go to character select screen.
Open up CE, do a String search (no unicode) for your Steam account name.
Click the last two results and change the value to something else.
Load your character and you will be unsoftbanned until you go through a loading screen.
Help to work this shit out and make it last.
Would you guys like CE trickery involving petrify and curse, that is even more versatile than its melee limited counterpart in DS (read petrifying warmth)?

I'll test it out some once I get back from something I have to do.
yeah I put it on my fucking tumblr first
Holy shit, fighting Sinh with someone else is fucking easy. I don't know how it is alone since I still haven't fought him. I helped some people against it and it was a fucking joke, all he did was flying around like a retard immediately after landing so that it was hard to hit him.
And people told it was the best Souls series fight. Are you fucking kidding me?
How do you even play vidya while tripping? Last time I was on LSD I tried to play Morrowind but I ended up just spending a few hours wandering in circles around Tel Fyr.
Jesus fuck I made some typos. Anyway, since there are already values in the CE, it gave us an idea where to start. It's pretty simple to look for the changing values after invading as different phantoms.
The 1800 value you have as a red seems to flip to some strange long value pretty fast, realised these "longer values" work as the new ones, I think!
Well, yeah, that's basically what I was doing. It was the notorious DPH/DXM combo for me

The Car is on fire, and there's no driver at the wheel...
My armor is ridiculous. The only good thing about my build is Defender's sword. I almost don't even need to use the shield or roll. Just attack at the right moment.
This fight is a joke.
Do you have any idea what you just done?

>met two shitters who were using his script
>both were unable to do shit against me and my teleport protection
>within a few weeks nobody even remembered him
There is something weird with your script
If you riposte someone first it doesnt petrify and kill them (unless your crit damage is high)
After the riposte if you use an item it gets them in this weird animation where they will fall down as if you parried them and then take toxic damage until they stand back up.
