Dude! Good job! You were super cautious but it paid off! The only thing I'd say (and bear in mind I've yet to best this guy) is that you could try use jump R2 as your default punish when he's open. If you want to force enemies to get posture broken in this you have to keep up the pressure too, he seems to have lots of openings that you just waited rather than sticking in a jump attack. 

 

Also! Guard counters man, I haven't tested these on him but he has huge gaps between his attacks, I'd be surprised if you can't interrupt his combos by guard countering after the first hit in a lot of cases. 

 

But still, you got him! Fine work. I appraised this message. Etc 😁

 

He has poise for DAYS

I'm at Carian Study Hall and I can't figure out how to get to the tower:

 

Spoiler

Have gone right to the top and can see some spiral stairs above me that may be able to be lowered down. There is a pedestal at the bottom that says it has a space for an item.

 

Any hints?

Explored a fair bit of Caelid tonight (and sub areas within). It's not that bad! Although I still avoid the giant enemy

birds

when possible. They're evil.

 

Biggest lol of the night was during a fight with the overworld boss 

Spoiler

Death Ritual Bird or something. Can't quite remember its name. Anyway, I was struggling until I realised it's weak to 

Spoiler

holy damage

and then I started wrecking it. But it saved me the trouble by backing off the cliff! Why bother killing it when it just kills itself?

Finally found a proper havel’s ring style talisman, between that and the one from near the tutorial I can properly switch up my armour.

I took another route to as well.

Also found somewhere very familiar:

Got to. Haven't even got to the castle. 

 

Double KO on Margit last night, didn't count. Gutted! I think it's because he died from poison a few seconds after I died, so the death animation hadn't finished. 

 

Next time he'll kill me again. Then he's mine.

Lol I worked it out within moments? 

 

You just have read the items descriptions. Souls 101, man.

 

I did get a bit confused that I couldn't equip it like armour or something, but the figured it might work like ashes of war and whaddya know! 

Yeah to be fair the only bits that actually threw me were the fact you have to equip from a site of grace (spent ages playing with the menus and status screen first before I thought of this) and the fact you need to use a rune arc. The item description for rune arc sort of makes it sound like it's optional and enhances the power of the rune, rather than being necessary for it to work at all.

This seems to be biggest mystery at the moment! Asked the same question a good while back and not sure if anyone answered (although thread moves so fast I may have missed it).

I’ve been playing offline as I’ve been using the widescreen hack, however the game wasn’t updating with the latest patch.

I’m not used to the messages everywhere, I find it really irritating lol. Back to offline play with a wider view!

 

I had an epic session yesterday, dual katanas rule! Took me about 20 attempts to kill

Spoiler

Mad Albert

In the end I just had to constantly mash him with the katanas and hope for the best! 
 

The 

Spoiler

Black Knight on the hooded horse

to the south of the map was a pain, I was doing so well but he ended up killing my horse and once I was on foot he massacred me! 


Farther south there’s a castle with 

Spoiler

A giant that shoots massive arrows at you. He was pretty easy. Inside the castle looks pretty scary though!


 

30+ hours and I’ve still not been back to Stormveil Castle! So much to see and do elsewhere!

You need to do Ranni questline for the item

Is Black flame blade broken? It literally lasts 2 seconds. 

 

My guess is it scales with whatever stats are needed to cast it?

For once I’m glad I clicked that spoiler, as I was puzzled by that dead end too.

 

Yesterday was the first day I thought “Actually maybe that’s enough Elden Ring for now”. But then I went to do some chores and had Limmy tackling Stormveil on in the background and ended up sitting back down and switching the fucking game on again! :lol:

 

Decided to look for mines on the map, and ended up finding what looks like another full area, or at least the run up to it:

 

Spoiler

Ruin-strewn Precipice


I’m at just the right level for it to be a struggle but achievable, which is the sweet spot for this game. Although somehow, even though I might have been a bit OP for Stormveil, it’s not like I didn’t struggle at times and die plenty. The Souls games seem to automatically counter the whole scaling or not question with open world games, as it’s always been inherent in the design that even the lowliest enemy (rats and dogs especially) can fuck you up if you play lazily. I never feel truly safe.

Found a really good spot to get a few levels into my stats. Easy as pie until one of your backstabs fails and you tap them on the shoulder - genuine panic mode as they turn around and prepare to one shot you.

Reddit seems to think it's borked. It applies a buff to your weapon then immediately disappears.

Never mind that, where did you get your helmet? 


They are available inside Stormveil.

 

What you can’t see in the OP’s pic is the extravagant mane on the back. It is that outrageous flamboyance that makes it my helmet of choice too.
