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.
