do monsters respawn when you die?

Generally mini-boss don't respawn. Late in the game you will encounter earlier mini-boss that now respawn.....because the game hates you. Of course, look at the bright side, you can now farm them.

I couldn't figure out how to get between his legs so I just ran past him ANYWAY BEAT THAT BOSS and lost all my humanity to the thumper dude in the basement.

Anyway I think I need to do something with the dragon next although the flame effects are murder on my... graphics non-card.

Right when hes about to swing he opens his stance up which allows you to roll through his legs. So literally you have to man up and roll towards him while hes attacking you. lol

The dragon breathing fire on the bridge. Don't bother trying to kill it yet. Run under the bridge through the stairs half way down the bridge. Stay on the right side as you run down and you should survive at least 1 fire breath if it hits you at all.

Make sure to kick the ladder down to open up a shortcut back to a bonfire.

Can't figure out how to get around the tauros demon after I land on its head. ffff

---edit---

Oh wait you can run in this.

Why run? You can kill him after the leap attack by 2h your weapon in a few swings with lighting pine. When he attacks you can roll through his legs easily.

By being more Skyrim like they mean having a more open world than the series of "tunnels" that Dragon Age Origins areas were. Bioware has said on its forums they are not planning on making Dragon Age into a sandbox game in anyway shape or form.

It other words, think of it as the difference between Demon Soul's Maps and Dark Soul's Open World. Dark Soul in no way turned into a sand box game but I do feel the level design was a lot better thanks to it being an open world. It gave that sense of "hey, thats where I have been or will be going next off in the distance" feeling which added to the epicness of the journey you travel in game.

And I have done it! VICTORY! LoL, I should have done New Londo first (its surprisingly short) and left the DLC for last. Would have had a much easier time. But its ok, I have survived the hell that is this game. Oh beloved victory, how sweet you taste. :D

I feel badass for having killed every boss with Magic. Even all the DLC bosses which some people don't think is possible. As long as you  use powerful spells like Great Chaos Fireball or Crystal Soul Spear, and all the items you can get that boost spell damage, its not that hard. Just got to get the timing of the attacks right so you know when its safe to heal. Healing at the wrong time vs bosses is what got me killed the most in this game.

Ended the game at lvl 84 with 50 INT and a fully upgraded Ascended Flame that I never used. lol  Well, besides just once to protect myself from Chaos Witch Quelaag lava.

When I play this game again I think I'll make a Faith based Occult Claymore weilding DarkWraith and have fun draining all the NPCs of humanity. Got to make sure I get 20 Flasks at every bonfire. lol Since Faith magic is pvp focused I'll use Pyromancy for PvE. Though, I'll start as a Cleric, heal is really useful early on and I really don't need attack magic at all until I get to the depths to rescue the first pyro merchant. I also want to make Gwendolin's bow. It may not be technically the best bow but I just think its badass to kill a god and turn his soul into a weapon.

I beat the DLC bosses (I was right that I needed Dark Sun Crown + Logan's Catalyst + Crystal Soul Spear) but released that I have missed the Crown of Dusk this walkthrough. Apparently, if you walk through the DLC portal before you get the Crown then you can never get the set that walkthough. THAT SUCKS, I AM PISSED. Then again the Dark Moon crown is safer to use anyway so. No matter, I shall be beating this game soon enough.

Nito was a push over, I am about to beat Sif, and then its the demon ruins and New Lando thats all that is left. Should beat this game soon.

Aww, the Sif fight was sad. Even looked like you were going to pet him. But OUT OF MY WAY. I'm so close to beat this damn nightmarish game that I can taste it.

Sigh, make me wish I went Pyromancer. lol Then again, they don't get the boss killing soul spears nor the awesome dark spells. They are sweet.

This one is pure epic, bow before the master of dark souls! LoL, butt naked with only a club.

Well, I have reached the final 2 bosses of the DLC. The Dragon and The abyss monster. These seem to be the hardest fights of the game and my magic is lacking. I feel like I could beat them but it will take a lot of trys. Rather than waste hours and endless frustration, I shall level up so more then return to finish these fights.

I really need crystal soul spear and Gwyndolin's helm to speed these fights up. So my plan now is to beat the catacombs and then Gwyndolin and perhaps a boss or two of the demon ruins. That should give me enough experience for 4 levels and Crystal Soul Spear.

Yes, it is my goal to slaughter all bosses with my magic. lol. I am a sorcerer after all. I might have to try using the power within as well.

And yes. I am playing completely offline so no help from other players. THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE. :P

Next boss after the Sanctuary Guardian is Artorias and his favorite food is players with low HP, low stamina and focus on Sorceries. Makes sure you have a shield with good stability.

I can consistantly get Artorias low but once I run out of soul spears I can't stop his power up. 2h handing my light weapons doesn't do enough damage fast enough unless I'm lucky. Then one mistake and I'm dead....Otherwise magic is doing swell.

If only I had more copies of Homing Crystal Soulmass and Soul Spear, I'd have beaten him already.

I finally beat him by going back to the barnfire and reequipping my normal Homing Soulmass and using it with Homing Crystal Soulmass for damage and Soul Spear and Heavy Soul Arrow to stop his power ups. At the end of the fight I just stabbed him with by BSS about 5 times and he died. I was getting low on health so I was very nervous I was going to die before finsishing him off, yet again. Lucky, he only got 2 failed power up attempt.

Hello 50,000 souls! :D

Thank God I decided it would be a good idea to boost my HP to 1000 HP. Never would have managed to beat this fight without heavy armor (especially high Poise so my spell casting isn't get stopped) and a good chunk of HP.

I also used the Blader Shield since it has the highest base stability out of all the shields I have.

I think I'm going to try to get to 44 int so I can get Crystal Soul Spear. Not sure I'll get it in time for the final boss but I'm not carrying around a bunch of souls here. No way. This will make my final level 78.

Sanctuary Guardian is proving impossible for me to beat....I can't even heal without being attacked. And I just can't dodge/block all its attacks. The only time I can attack safely is after a dive attack and those are few and far between.

Edit: I did it finally, I think it took 2 and half hours to do............................................................................................

I hate this game and yet can't stop. LOL. I will beat it. At least I'm level 70 now.
41  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls on: December 30, 2012, 03:00:08 AM
i'd like to see iron lumberjacks vrs. pursuers. my bet one lumberjack falls the other cleans up.

I'd love to see that as well. Those we halarious videos.

Status Update, I've done the Dukes Archives and Painted World of Ariamis. I'm going to do the DLC extra content next then Sif the great wolf, the catacombs, and finally the Demon Ruins.

WISH ME luck vs Artorias, from what I've seen online, hes a real pain in the butt to face. Can't wait to get pursuers for myself.

I'm doing it people, slowly but surely. I'm level 69 right now and I shall stop at lvl 70. The rest of my experience will go into upgrading my flame. I might just use fire spells on the final boss.

My final stats will be:
lvl 70
Vit 22 (1018 with Ring of Favor and Protection)
End 30
STR 12
Dex 14
RES 8
INT 36
Faith 8

I use the Ring of Favor and Protection which allows me to wear:

Black Sorcerers hat (mostly for its super light weight, it also looks stylish!)
Eastern Armor (Looks awesome with good protection)
Black Iron Gauntlets
Black Iron Leggings

Thats 56 poise WITHOUT the wolf ring. LOL

My melee defense is over 210 and man does that make a difference. This game really is all about the equipment.

Funny, I didn't intend for this but I've basicly made a semi-tank Sorcerer. lol

Oh, and my 3 fully upgraded weapons are:

Lighting +5 Bandits Knife
Enchanted +5 Blader Side Sword
and the all mighty Quelaag's Furysword - truly the best boss weapon you can build.

And with that I have all 3 elements covered and access to bleeding.

Edit: Acutally, first I'm going to kill Sif, the great wolf. Easy fight at this point.

I'd advise against doing that until you've been through the new areas added in the PC version/DLC. There's an extra scene you'll miss if you kill him before doing that.

Oh yeah, almost forgot about that. Thanks. Then its black Hydra hunting time.
43  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls on: December 27, 2012, 06:14:09 AM
I'm finally gotten through Ando Lando. Sigh, that caused me more trouble than it really should have. my sense of timing sucks. Ornstein and Smough were more of a pain in the butt than they should have been. Still, glad I have sorcery. I would not want to try to melee these bosses but I hear it is possible to stun lock them with enough hits. Still, even with a melee focused build I'd probably cheat and use Pyromancy vs these guys.

Anyway, FINALLY, on to the Dukes' Archives where I shall get my Large Magic Ember. Of course, I did what any self respecting mage does and built quelaag's furysword to deal with the magic resistant enemies in the archive.

Edit: Acutally, first I'm going to kill Sif, the great wolf. Easy fight at this point.


Why DOES EVERY NPC in this game have a troll laugh...Its like they are all mocking me. This game! O.o

Edit 2: I need to do the Ash Lake hydra battle too. Hopefully as easy as the first Hydra which really just needs a +10ish weapon to kill fast.

Also forgot to mention that I obliterated the Bridge Dragon with a Lighting Bandit's Knife +5. I feel badass. lol

Dat pic makes lighting have a derp face. How Dare YOU! Shame. :P
45  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls on: December 24, 2012, 12:22:03 AM
Faith based sorcerer does sound awesome but you'd have to wait all the way till Anor Londo before you could get the Tin Darkmoon Catalyst. Shame. But it does provide the biggest Magic Adjustment making CMW god like. And 31 int is enough to use Crystal Soul Mass, Don't need much else.

Would be a perfect fit with a Greatsword of Artorias build. Make use of all those distrubted stats, might be perfect for a Deprived class. Your not the best at anything but you can do everything. lol


I really don't care for much of anything among the Miracles spells. Seems much more useful for PvP. I do complement my Sorcery with Pyro for power within and use vs fire enemies.
