    Early on? Hmm, so you reckon I should keep doing the Academy boss hoping I GIT GUD or get a summoner who brings purple balls and lasers? I could ask a guide, but I'd rather not. That's for NG+.


    I was levelled a bit higher than you (40-ish I think) for the Academy boss and I got a summoner to help. I'm sure it's possible at lower levels but I hadn't put anything into VIT at that point so was struggling on my own. The very personification of a glass cannon.

    I think I need some guidance with my Astrologer.


    Level 35, wielding a +10 staff (not the starter one, the one you find at/get as a reward for killing a big bastard) and a +4 crystal sword that scales with INT. Doing good damage against regular enemies and mini bosses. I went full INT (24) with no points in FAI and ARC. Got a decent selection of glintstone spells. Problem is, proper bosses drain my FP like crazy. My flasks are now 3 HP:5 FP, I could of for 0:8 but I'd rather not be without a potion when low on HP.


    Did I miss something/someone? Am trying the boss as the Academy and man that's rough. I've seen summoned players casting like purple balls of doom and like big ass laser beams. Where I can get myself some of that shit, that looks neat.


    I had similar issues early on with a standard 'glass cannon' mage. All my early levels were pumped into INT to get damage up and I ended up carrying mostly FP flasks.


    Later on it gets a bit easier when you have your damage up and can afford to put some levels into MND - that will mean you can cast more before refuelling. It also helps when you upgrade your flask with more charges.


    The purple balls of doom can be found relatively early on but the laser beams are further down the road from where you are now.


  3. So



    I went back to Stormveil Castle for a stroll, see if I missed anything, and I realised the prick that was stealing my souls was still there (found him where I put an end to Godrick). Some revenge quickly ensued.


    Second big boss is down but I haven't fully explored the lakes area yet. I still feel like I'm only just starting out, even though I'm 30 hours in and level 50. Onwards.

  4. I have a feeling we're all still scratching at the surface of this game, it's already clearly a masterpiece. The secrets yet to find, the road yet to travel.


    I've rinsed Limgrave and the Weeping Peninsula, dipped my toes into Caelid (some very nice gear there thank you very much), stormed Stormveil Castle and currently banging my head against the next legacy dungeon boss.


    I have been playing computer games for a very, very long time and this really is as good as it gets.
