Spartan_doge_6

REMEMBER TO BACKSTAB And summon solaire


strownsu1

Idk what that part means but I’ll keep it in mind!


Spartan_doge_6

Get behind an enemy, drop your shield and hit the right trigger


ABagFullofBags

Damn already getting backseated 🤨


TurkeyDragon69

I’m almost certain he meant the summoning part


Jan_Itor_Md_

Right bumper/L1, backstabs are light attacks. Also have to make sure and stop all movement before backstabbing it can be finicky.


strownsu1

Update: I’ve died at least 25 times already…


zachary_cannaday

I dunno man sounds dangerously like progress to me


Spartan_doge_6

Don’t worry, it gets better If it gets really bad here’s a really good guide https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=csHWnuLBXsA&list=PL7RtZMiaOk8i5W4e8j_Bz6YDdFq3o4aAh&index=5

You won't need luck where you're going. #praisethesun


backtothefuture112

Oh man have fun. Loved this game.


King4oneday_

Your first From Software game? :3


Prof_Aim

I haven't tried any soul game. Nioh is first so tell me is Nioh harder? Coz I've died like 45 times already


strownsu1

I’ve never tried it but I know I can’t literally get past the 1st part of the first actual level that isn’t the tutorial


twood071

Its... different. I find nioh bosses are more difficult. They seem more tricky and quicker. It's almost like they punish pattern recognition more. But the environments in nioh are easier imo.


strownsu1

Yes! And it’s hard as fuck and I’m right after the raven takes you… I’ve died like 25 times already


King4oneday_

Haha nice! We've all been there :X good luck on your journey! Next titel i recommend Dark Souls 3 ...then Sekiro! ...dark Souls 2 sucks 😅


strownsu1

Thanks! I still haven’t beaten two FUCKING SKELETONS on the fire link shrine… I can’t believe I’m getting literally fucked by two skeletons


King4oneday_

Yeah there it is. The original dark Souls experience 😌


Shrey_Kira

You might have went the wrong way. The graveyard stuff is late game. Go towards right of FireLink, you will see a ridge going up. Follow that into the undead burg :)


strownsu1

I will need to see another way. I went down some hole with a lever and it eventually went to this spot where there are the ghost with daggers that REACH 100 FT WHICH I CANT BLOCK OR HIT. I’m getting the dark souls experience


Shrey_Kira

You went to New Londo Ruins. Another late game area. The ghosts can only be damaged by consuming a special item called transient curses. You cannot seem to catch a break dude lol. Just try to follow the undead berg area :) P. S: r/DarkSouls would be of great help to you.


strownsu1

Yeah there isn’t much of help guide in game so I’m just trying to figure it out without looking things up. I might have just went to 2/3 or the wrong ways 😂


Shrey_Kira

No problem. Enjoy the game and don't hesitate to ask me if you get stuck somewhere. Praise the sun \\[ ]/


PokeMaki

Imo, Dark Souls 2 doesn't suck. OP shouldn't be afraid to try it out. Oh, but Burnt Ivory King can suck a dick.


Vivitom

DS2 doesn't suck at all. Critically it was considered a great game when it was released. People were just pissed that the Launch edition wasn't on par with what was presented on the trailers, thus a hive mindset among fans started that it isn't great. DS2:Scholar of the first sin fixed all the issues. Also Rat King is the best NPC from the souls games ''I trust in thee as i would any rat''


Vivitom

I enjoyed DS2 equally to the other Soulsborne games and it is a great game. Fume Knight is top 3 souls boss. Overall the game is underrated, it has it's pain points but they are nowhere near to ruin the experience


DarkTrebleZero

Good luck versus Biggie and Pokie


z_dogwatch

Snorlax and Pikachu?


DarkTrebleZero

Lmao yes


z_dogwatch

I actually beat them on my first try with what most would only call, dumb luck. That said, my second run it took me over 200 attempts (though I was using the double damage taken ring)


DarkTrebleZero

That’s awesome! Different game, but I had the same luck with Orphan of Kos and Lady Maria in Bloodborne


Lachimanus

My second run was an SL1 one, did not take so many tries as you with 200. But 4 kings was really hard. Took the most deaths on them, I think. On my first run the hardest boss for me was actually Taurus demon with something like 10 tries. O&S were 7 tries, a single try on the second form.


dakine879

I was gonna say, check back in at the bell tower, but i like your comment better


googlefather

You have died


randomact19

Sounds about right 😆


badturtlejohnny

Amazing chest ahead


strownsu1

I’ve realized I don’t even know what class to start with 😅


dakine879

obviously depraved LOL


ABagFullofBags

I just started my first DS run and went with the Bandit class, the battle axe is a great starting weapon once you get used to it. Don't be afraid to try out a few classes, starting the game over isn't too much of a setback early on


ABagFullofBags

GLHF! You will be frustrated, but it always gets easier with time and a little luck


jokekiller94

Actual pro tip: go down the elevator to the flooded castle. Try to run past the ghosts and get to the item floating in the middle of the maze. It will give you one bonus drink of HI-C juice for healing.


zachary_cannaday

Technically it will increase the heal amount per drink but still incredibly invaluable


ToastMcgoats

Dumbledore dies at the end.


TBoneHolmes

Ummmm some of us haven’t gotten there yet!!!


ancrepe

it takes skill to beat the capra demon


UCLYayy

Fuck that guy and his stupid dogs


RevenkoGaming

Good luck!!! 😀...


[deleted]

Oh my! I’m also just staring, good luck


randomact19

You're going to love it! Good luck


Jeahn2

Good luck!


LordAlarond

It’s not about luck... it’s about perseverance....


Aliveleopard9

Me: Kill very hard boss 5 seconds later: tutorial complete


SteeamAdm

Good luck with ornstein and smough.


TBoneHolmes

Don’t have the latest consoles to play Elder Rings either, huh?


strownsu1

I have a Series X but I wanted to play the original first and then go from there. If I can get into this one I’ll get elden ring


Grilledmango

I have 8.8 million souls in this game


[deleted]

Imo the easiest one out of the series, so very good to get into the franchise. Have fun!


graablikk

You poor poor soul.


ZooNeiland

And girls?


PoloHorsePower_

Just the men


strownsu1

Yes and girls thank you for being inclusive


ZooNeiland

Was just being cheeky and have definitely watched an awful lot from the Triple Jump folk on YouTube 😊 Gaming for all!


ggcec

Dont be sexist, women can be part of the boys too.


rc_badger

Give me a break.


Lachimanus

I wish you some "but hole" and "great chest ahead", my friend.


MAGISTER-ORGANI

I wish you don't KILL SOLAIRE!!!!!!!!!! If you do your penalty will be to watch 'All Dark Souls Bosses in NG+9 vs Solaire of Astora' ! (that video actually exists)


youlikemen3

DON'T GO LEFT


dalici0us

Took me longer than I care to admit to realise that I had other options my first time up.


iLarkie

There is no luck. Only death. Good luck brave Soul, don’t let your flame die.


clonerobot17

Then for crab


absurd_cactus

My girlfriend saw me playing elden ring and she downloaded this on her switch….. she doesn’t know what’s coming to her.


Marwan_Tredano

I am myself considering the exact same thing... I should just go ahead and do it already


strownsu1

Come rage with me


Illustrious-bear-168

Praise the sun \0/


zegalsp

Try finger but hole


TheRealSavio

good luck, remember that dying is a kind of progress, you learn what you could avoid/do better PRAISE THE SUN!
