fired this up this morning. kind of looks like shit. maybe the monitor i'm using is too good?
You have a pro right? I’m p sure it was upscaled
3 years later
I just got it too. Realized I only needed a couple minor things.
3 year old game with a 5.5% platinum rate is pretty crazy
If i have done zero chalice dungeon content how many hours am i from plat?
The chalice dungeons aren’t my favorite thing tbh. I enjoy the boss fights but the farming of material gets tedious. You can always go online though and get glyphs of certain dungeons that you’ve previously retrieved items from and run them again and again to stock items. I’d estimate you have minimum 15 hrs of game time down there to reach the queen and that’s not considering wipes to some of the hardest bosses in Soulsbourne
It’s also difficult for me to give a concrete number being that I eventually took a very casual approach to the dungeons
probably a good 100 for me
I mean you can go online and follow guides that bypass mobs and take you straight to items, then go clear the boss. You’ll miss out on valuable blood echoes for leveling as you go but idk what that matters. I cleared the chalices at BL 140 and that’s the highest level I’ve ever been in any souls game
What was your weapon/build?
I made a build from scratch meant specifically for tackling the chalices and was a bit cheesy but idc I wanted that platinum.
Strength/arcane high vit/end
Whirleygig Saw plus 10
Tonitrus plus 10
Hunter pistol plus 10
Cannon plus 10
When the chalices got tough I’d use the beast rune from the OH dlc paired with beast blood pellets and fire/bolt/magic shell buffs on bosses with the WGS and just absolutely melt bosses down there (I killed Rom in the Chalices in about 30 seconds for reference. Try it if you get the chance, hilariously OP). Once I got into the cursed chalices I left all the beast related stuff behind and started using more stamina related runes so I could dodge more. Was stuck on amygdala for a while because my patience isn’t built for that fight but once I dealt with her it was smooth sailing.
I traditionally used a skill/arcane build with BoM and the Burial Blade but I was having issues making that work at BL 100 in the chalices and didn’t want to level past that because of the PvP meta.
It’s insane. It breaks vanilla so bad, legit every boss is a joke
I was debating on a pure skill (BoM) pure bloodtinge, or pure arcane (LHS) run through. I might try that though.
The only thing is that when you take beasthood into effect it’s about as glass cannon as you can imagine. Bosses hit crazy hard when your bar is full but it hardly matters when they start the fight dead
I could never really get into blades of mercy. They are just so fucking short. I like weapons that allowed me to alternate good range with a nice faster one hand mode. Ludwig's, burial blade, church pick, whirligig etc.
As has been said, you can skip a lot of the nonsense by looking at a guide to tell you the switches you need to flip and only do the required parts. Also, helps if you have a really high level character because stuff like the defiled or cursed dungeons can be incredibly difficult. So depending how good you are and how much you explore, it can be not too bad. But its still a lot of shit to kill.
Yeah I loved the BoM until I used the Burial Blade and realized how much that added range helps. I still enjoy using them in PvP. The heavier, rangier weapons are more fun in PvE for sure though. Exact reason why I re rolled a character with the intent to clear the chalices
Yeah PVP has never been my thing. Probably why I can't use BoM.
After I beat Sekiro and since it has been a very long time since Ive played DS1 or DS2 I'm thinking of doing a Soulsborne marathon with the 4 games and praying Demon Souls will eventually get a remake. The twist is that I'll let y'all choose which class I play and each game the class has to be different. Debating streaming all of this though time wise it will take an extremely long time because I can maybe average an hour or two of gaming a day if I'm lucky. No idea when this will start though
DS1- Smoughs Hammer
DS2- Smoughs Hammer
BB- Smoughs Hammer
DS3- Smoughs Hammer
I wish I was good at BB. Loved playing it, but I sucked at it and have a terrible short term memory so I'd always get lost.
I'm down for that. Bloodborne doesn't have much class variety but the others will be interesting.
i am trying to get into this. loved dark souls 3 and beat it solo on new game+ (co-oped with a buddy on first playthrough). dark souls i've played up to the gargoyle on the roof and then had another game come out i wanted to play so dropped it.
i'm at cleric beast and getting destroyed. finding it hard to get into the game when the first boss is worse than any of the first souls bosses i've played so far.
Stick with it. I'm jealous you're getting to go through it first time right now. That frustration makes the excitement of beating it that much better
i actually just beat the bell gargoyles in dark souls 1 and feel like my enjoyment is reborn for that now. so we'll see which i do. was gonna do a drunk souls thing with bloodborne (drunkborne?) next week with some buddies so might just go that route till im hooked on it.
Please stream that
A couple buds did drunk souls for Bloodborne launch and DS3 launch.
Bloodborne I died probably 15 times to the cleric beast and was too trashed to move forward. Everyone in the party got well into the game while I passed out from Jameson shots. I logged in the next day and proceeded to one shot every boss until rom.
Dark Souls 3 most everyone got lit at gundyr and I one shot him and made my way all the way to the abyss watchers w/o even really getting drunk.
I was certain I had lost my souls mojo after getting smacked around by the cleric beast and was drunk raging
Did this for the Bloodborne release . I got fucking hammered off of Markers Mark by the time I beat the Cleric Beast.
I’ve had the game downloaded for like a year now and think it’s time to play it. Good to see a bud pick it up around the same time.
this game have summons? i know i can with npc's so i assume you can online.
***Summon Dixie Chicks***
we should setup a time to play Boyd Crowder. i tried playing the other night against cleric beast and then found another way to father gascoin (whatever his name is) instead. after fighting both a lot, i have decided that this game is not for me. its just not making sense how to get their health down, i can do a 1/5th and then die. i've read strats and watched videos and i still am not able to. never had issues like this in dark souls and ds3.
Keep at it man, this game is a bit different than those. You really need to be aggressive and use the rally system. If you were one to rely on shields in those other games then you need to learn to dash/dodge.
Tbh, I’m still psyching myself up to play. Not sure I can handle the frustration of what Bloodborne has in store for me. I know the time involved to understand the mechanics, and for that reason I’m thinking about playing a JRPG like Ni No Kuni or Dragon Quest XI instead. But coming off a huge time investment in Monster Hunter: World, I feel like my reaction time to a game like Bloodborne should be adequate. I mean, I have a 2:10 solo Tempered Nergigante kill for fucks sake.
Bloodborne scares me, though.
Once Bloodborne clicks the vannila game is much easier than any of the vanilla souls games.
Bloodborne didn't connect too well with me bc I'm a bad kid. I am terrible at remember which route I took to get to a specific spot, so if I died I had a hell of a time remember how to get back to where I was at. I'm also not good at learning the specifics of an enemies attack.
tell me how to make it click then. because i'm breezing through dark souls 3 right now, and just got past blighttown in ds1... but bloodbourne i can't beat either of the first bosses.
The first two bosses should do it. Gasgoine especially is a skill check. One bit of advice that I’ll give you is that dodging twords an enemy a lot of the times works better than dodging away. BB rewards aggression
Gasgoine forces you to learn the counter and visceral attack after before you can move on because it so important in the game.
George RR Martin and fromsoftware are collaborating. I'd be upset about this if I hadn't already resigned myself to the fact that the ASOIAF books are never being finished, so what the hell, I'll get excited for that. Fromsoftware is one of the only developers that makes games where I actually give a shit about the story, (Most developers don't know how to follow the #1 rule: "Show, don't tell.") so this could potentially be really good.
Uhhh I just beat the first 2 bosses on the first try. What do I do with my hands?
I’m doing a skill build but still stuck with the dumpy saw cleaver. I just got really lucky on viscerals against Gascoigne. He barely took werewolf form. I do have a buddy over that told me to equip the music box and try to prevent him from going berserk but it didn’t work. I fucked him up pretty good, regardless.
With a skill build I’d go down into the area where all the rats are before gasgoine (the lead up to the big pig) and pick up the saw spear. That’s more of a true skill weapon while the cleaver is more quality
I tried the saw spear and wasn’t vibing with it.
Just murder eilene
Game is wonderful and now I’m going to try to shame everyone I know who hasn’t played it into doing so. I just killed the fuck with the Gatling. Am currently level 27 and still using the shitty starting weapon.
