Speaking of hitting people with bells, a lightning infused Disc Chime hits like a brick made out of lightning if you happen to tap anyone with it. Around 700 per hit, I've seen 1200 on someone without armor. AND you can use it to shoot lighting/heal/buff/block.

I might dual wield a set of them and ring bells while reking trespassers

Can we talk about how disappointing it is that Velstadt's hammer doesn't make a BONG noise when you hit people with it? 0/10 FROM

Anything is easy when you abuse poison and hexes.

Dual havelyns +poison spam is legit and babby tears are delicious

I used poison to cheese my way through demons souls and I did it in DS2 as well

great resosnant soul is the firearm of dark souls it is the great equalizer, all men have power thanks to GRS

If you hate hexes you hate america

GRS got hit hard by the nerf stick, though.

Funny thing is that these nerfs made hex builds literally invincible. Numbness increases all resistances by 30% and can potentially last over a minute, Great Magic Barrier does the same. With Havel's Armor + Gyrm Helmet you get the last 30% you need to be almost immune to every damage type save for physical, and the great defenses from the heavy armor takes care of that.

Pretty much, otherwise I'm not sure how you can't notice any kind of discrepancy between the difficulty of the Abyss areas and the rest of the game (Although I only ever did them on NG+, not sure how much they change from NG).

Darklurker has insane amounts of dark resist anyways, so if you're using hexes on him you're doing it wrong.

I don't have enough trust in FROM after DS2 to warrant picking up a ps4 for Bloodborne. I bought a PS3 exclusively form Demon's Souls and it was worth it but I'm not confident in them this time around, "B-Team" or otherwise.

I was a STR melee build against Darlurker. I LOST ALL MY HUMANITY ON THAT BASTARD.
Funny part, I actually defeated him at one point with a well placed Firestorm...Only to discover that the clone could still attack a bit after the original was killed. I had to stop a bit after that.

It ended in me finally upgrading the Rebel's Greatshield so it had 100% Dark resist (Fuck yearh), make my Great Club on fire, and started wailing on the angelic-looking assface without giving much more of a fuck.
And thus, on my last humanity, I discovered that in the end, the Darklurker was vulnerable to "beating to a pulp".

It's also annoying that it's pretty much the only boss you can't have a summon to help - that's what also makes it one of the toughest challenge.
Boss wise, tho, Dark Souls 2 was a bit easier than Dark Souls - Mainly because that there are plenty ways to heal yourself, and that the "I'VE GOT A FUCKING GREATSHIELD MAGGOT" tactic is able to take care of a LOT of problems. I don't remember not having the greatshield necessary for a situation - Wyrm Greatshield for fire, Rebel's for Dark. Have yet to find one that can say "Get fucked" to soul magic, but i'll find it in due time.

I believe for me the only other tough challenge for me was the Smelter Demon - one of the bossfight where I actually needed to summon.
And then i realised the Wyrm Greatshield could have made the whole deal less bothersome. I then went on to tank everything for a lot of sunbros in need of help. It was golrious (until they get ripped th shred BECAUS THEY CAN'T KEEP THEIR DISTANCE).

Also, is there anything resistant to lightning in this game?



After that, I didn't really do the ancient Dragon, and fuck the stairs leading to him.

I dislike that there is a possibility that the old-DS2 versions might not get the new NPCs/events/game rebalance but I was planning on buying DS2 and the DLC to celebrate upgrading to the mustard race anyways so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I can wait til 2015, I've waited for webcomics to update for longer times.

You get the NPCs and item descriptions with the original version, along with everything they add, but you don't get the gameplay changes and 'enhanced graphics'.
