    Despite the fact that he's kicking my ass, I really enjoy the fight with Artorias. Something about it just feels so... Perfect.

    4 Kings are such a pain in the ass. Can anybody help me? I'm level 95.

    • NP. Next time you're stuck on a boss, we've got pretty much every strat down.

    [+] Having a hard time really deciding on a good weapon for my strength/faith paladin themed character. Everything themes to either outright suck, or has really big drawbacks (especially the cool looking and themed weapons. Like the boss ones)

    I've pretty much just been defaulting to my mace (which I wish there was a cooler one of. But it appears to be the best weapon of its type) while using a broadsword if I have to hit side-to-side for whatever reason.

    • Murakumo is my fave weapon in Dark Souls no matter what build I make. Due to fusions you can customise weapons to your builds needs. For it to scale with faith it would be best as either Divine or Occult.

    Why do people say Smough's second form is easier? His jumping attack throws all conception of that out the window for me. Its radius must be, what, twice as big as Ornstein's?

    [+] Why do people say Smough's second form is easier? His jumping attack throws all conception of that out the window for me. Its radius must be, what, twice as big as Ornstein's?

    I haven't managed to get him down to half health while with Ornstein I got him down to around 1/4th...

    Maybe it's just me...

    Wish I had some Xbox live so I could summon some help (that is, if anyone else still even plays this) instead of having to rely on just poor Solaire.

    • I found, through my Soulses years, that, in the beginning, it is "always me", who fails to appreciate the elegance of the different approaches.

      Mostly, I try "one" tactics and even when I think, I am 'changing my playstyle', I watch Twitch/YT videos of other players and my mind is blown, how differently their play-style is compared to mine.

      In the beginning, the boss fight always appears to my mind as impossible, strange and overwhelming. But once the 'curtain' is revealed, I join the minions who breeze through the content eventually.

      Sure, some fights can always be tricky, but I judge them these days by my own moods. The way I lose in Dark Souls, tells me about my current state of mind.

      This game taught me more about myself, than any other.

    • Well that got philosophical.

      But yeah finally getting a trick down for these guys was satisfying. Kill Smough as quick as I could with my lightning spear from Sen's Fortress so Solaire could have as much health as possible, then just stay close to Ornstein (except when he does the lightning smash), two handing my mace for attacks, and one-handing so I could have my shield up while waiting for an opening

    Dark Souls needs a remaster. Not just for the tech update; for the community. I love the game, but it just feels so dead when I'm going through the game with no direct community, you know?

    Platinum #111 and my second souls platinum. I'm starting Dark Souls 3 straight after as I'm still craving more. Praise the sun \[T]/

Just need one more trophy for the platinum, need to do one last playthrough up to crystal caves for the blue slab. I managed to get from the start of NG++ up to the second bell in about an hour so as long as ornstein and Smough don't hold me up I should have the platinum soon.

    • I didn't have the trophy until NG++. I had all my weapons maxed and ready for upgrade in NG, you only need to beat Ornstein and Smough twice, I got one of NG and one in NG+.The only reason I had to beat them a third time was because I missed the blure titanite slab in my first playthrough. If I hadn't done that I could have gone to undead parish ASAP, used the crest of artorias and been done with it, but I had to replay all the way up until dukes archives lol. No biggie though, only took me like 3 hours extra.

He waved back, stood doing different gestures then eventually left the game without hurting me <3

I went full Havel set, and two handed Ornstein until he died. Then Smough was an absolute piece of cake on his own, barely got hit at all. As long as you use the pillars and roll INTO his attacks you can get a couple of hits in without taking any damage. I also went back to the painted world and got priscillas tail as I missed it the first time. Not a great deal left on my NG+ playthrough now, just a couple more areas then one last speed run to Sif in NG+ and I'm done!

    • You can still easily get one shotted in full Havel's gear. And Tidus, I figured out my slab problem. I'm at crystal caves again on NG+ and turns out the blue slab I thought I picked up on my first playthrough was actually a blue chunk located literally metres away from the slab (the slab being in a ridiculously fiendish place to find on your first playthrough....). So basically, I never picked it up so I need to do another run up to this point again after I'm done with this playthrough...
