You say this like its a bad thing! I'm in no rush whatsoever. Once it's done I'll never get to experience it fresh again.

 

Not a bad thing at all!

 

Just amazed at how much game there is!

I'm trying not to stress about my clock time. I think I've seen much less of the game than some with similar times, but if you're enjoying it then why not take your time! You only get to experience a game like this blind once so the more hours the better in some ways :).

 

 

It's more surprise at just how much of my free time has been swallowed by this one game given how little critical path progress I have yet made. 

 

It's incredible.

Just spent 3 hours jolly cooping Godrick with a pretty good success rate. :)

 

He’s easier than Margit IMO. His moveset is slow and you get space in between attacks. Margit can string attack patterns quickly (and regularly does) which makes him tough to challenge. 
 

It’s possible to position yourself for phase 2 too, which allows you to wail on him as he does his first move. This is particularly satisfying as you can burst his posture and get a riposte while he’s showing off his new attack.

Picking my way through the second legacy dungeon now, it’s slow progress but I have managed to…

 

Spoiler

Beat the wolf boss. He went down relatively easy truth be told. He really doesn’t like Blood Slash

I loved meeting the two fingers at the roundtable last night.. 

 

Spoiler

Wasn't expecting LITERAL fingers, lol. Fucking weird.  And explains the weird thing I found at the top of Stormveil tower! 

 

And this crazy woman apparently channelling their thoughts / words?

You're actually talking about two different places here. For the other one, try to find the source of the clinking noise you hear in the courtyard.

 

 

Aah, OK. I thought I'd looked all round the courtyard, especially after:

 

Spoiler

being whisked away somewhere. As I'd avoided that are prior to defeating Godrick as I was sure those rows of statues would come to life and smash me!


I shall look into it though but, after I finally managed to find the bottom of the lift following a very thorough nose around near what was the most obvious grace point I was again at a dead end, so went for a wander in the lakes. Now dead at the bottom of a cave by boss that I failed to get a single hit on! I need to leave it there for now...

Has anyone made the boss weapons from Godrick 'soul' item yet?

The dragon fire arm looks insane! Want to combine with the dragon head for maximum lols! 😁

 

 

 

I made them although I don't have the stats to use but, yeah, that one does look outrageous!

Another slow and steady player here. Began as a wretch, put 40 hours in and am level 35 I think. I die A LOT. So I’ve lost loads of runes. My main weapons are only +8, and my spirit summons at +3. I’ve only defeated the first main boss, and keep getting one-shotted by the second.

 

Couldn’t care less.

 

Having the time of my life. I’ve explored plenty of other areas, have multiple quest lines on the go, and have vanquished a score of mini-bosses and great enemies.
 

This is already my GOAT and I’ve easily another 70-80 hours to do on this first run.

That was my exact reaction, ha!

 

Spoiler

So the two fingers are actually...two fingers? Makes sense.

 

And as for that woman 'channeling' their words, that strikes me as a bit suspect. I get the feeling we're being manipulated somehow to do someone else's bidding.

 

"Seems familiar..."

Visions of serpent. 

 

Aaaah, nostalgia.

Only just hit level 20 last night.  I've ran around a lot, dying in places that are a bit too hard, and not bothering to grab my lost runes.  Only finished a few mini-bosses but not managed a proper boss yet.  Felt like I should give Margit another try last night, so I jumped in a coop game, but it felt like it would be beyond me.  I did defeat an invader last night (probably the first one everyone meets), and that felt well hard!

So that's 

 

Spoiler

Gelmir Heros Grace, Black Knife Catacombs and Crucible Knight down.

 

Good session. The CK fight was especially fun. Infuriating at times but more due to my greed in going for hits.

 

The 

Spoiler

Tree Sentinels

are fucking up next. Bastards

Just out of interest, are there the same numbers of achievements/trophies across the platforms. They aren't something I usually bother with but they are front and centre on Steam along with percentage of players who have the ones I have. 

 

On PC there are 42 and I have just five. Also, 59.5% of players have defeated the first proper boss and 42.9% the second, both of which are higher numbers than I  expected.

I thought this would be Dark Souls in a bland open world. How wrong I was, this a different enough to be its own thing. Liking it so far, am about 3 hours in on my Astrologer (right?) doing stuff that does not involve Margit.

Easily done 80 hours and only taken Godrick down. I just love existing in the world and the slow discovery, experimentation and wonder of it all. I'll be playing this for years, same as Dark Souls - currently at about 1500 in that and still play regularly.

The Crystal dudes take HUGE damage on crit attacks when you break their poise. Keep hammering them with heavy and jump heavy. It's a war of attrition though!

 

Spoiler

YEEEESSSSS!!!!!! Take that spear and ram it up your arse, you jumping crystal cunt!

 

Ahem. Thank you @Dark Soldier, you gave me just the encouragement I needed. :D

Spoiler

Moonlight Greatsword get! :eyebrows:


Tempted to do a respec so i can use it. Not likely I'm gonna do the crazy-ass long, convoluted questline again on my Mage build.

 

Might just backup my save and have a muck about with it.

I beat the MWM

 

Spoiler

(Magma Wyrm)

 

boss in the caves. :D Not too tricky, and pretty similar to things in older From games.

 

Also, I'm at a point where the Physick flask with the Strength Crystal Tear thing gives me enough strength to wield this "Colossal Sword" I have... if only occasionally.

How are you quitting out of the game? Cuz going to the menu and doing it the proper way shows how long you have been playing for.

 

Aha, so it does, cheers.  I wasn't looking as I didn't think it would be there.

 

Just a meagre 25 hours here.

Focking hell.

 

Over 30 hours and I'm still discovering stuff as if the entire game is new and fresh.

I can clearly see the LEGO bricks used to construct this world now, but it just. Keeps. On. Giving.

 

Bethesda will have to do some magical stuff for me to ever love their open worlds again, because like hell will I play with that dry biscuit recipe ever again.

Just beat a SURPRISE! giant boss first time. Liurnia spoilers:

 

Spoiler

Dragonkin Soldier of Nokstella? In a huge underground cavern with a massive skeleton sitting in it. Nope I don't know either. Got an achievement, though.

 

Proper shit your pants moment when it jumped down. I was sat on 12,000 souls as well!
