Yeah CFA very much leads into the end game. If you’re interested in side quests it’s best to get them done before defeating the boss of the area, as it locks you out of some things.


Thank you!

 

Why would the game tell you the path was very much this way, when there’s a tonne of map and bosses still to uncover? Big trailer-friendly Rune bosses too. Can’t believe a celebrated figure like Radahn can be completely ignored. Bonkers.

I found him easier dismounted, rolling into his swings to trey to get around his rear/shield side for a quick hit before backing off from his counter bash. Fireballs you call sideroll, never did figure out any tells on the lightning strikes - fairly sure you just have to time it, no visual cues I noticed. That was the only bit that felt cheap to me, I feel like the lightning needs to give you, say, a building glow on the ground before it hits, like the yellow stuff does out in the field.


The tell for the lightning is his shield, as soon as you see it move it’s time to dodge. 
 

The fight is defs easier dismounted, I found that if you stick to the horse’s butt as much as possible he won’t do the lightning.

I managed to get 4 short sessions on this today. Every time I sat down, I meant to go find the Stormveil dungeon and then ended up doing something else completely.

 

I found the Village of Albinaurics earlier. Seemed like an interesting race. Hope I learn a bit more about them elsewhere.

Have you done the Academy boss yet? You'll learn more about the Albinaurics from her.

Hmmm, I'm tiring of this now. This happened with Dark Souls 3 - I just stopped playing that because I lost interest, and it's happening here where it didn't with Dark Souls 1, Bloodborne (which I replayed to get the full proper ending!), and Demon's Souls. What's not helping is that, later in the game, the visuals for me just aren't as good. Volcano Manor and the surrounding area look, well, shit to be honest - the lighting in that area is all over the place. But it's not just visuals, while in Volcano manor I thought I was safe from those wheelie maiden things because I was up on some stairs, but one clipped right through the stairs I was on and killed me. That is utter bullshit, and about as last-gen as you can get. I said this when I first played the game, and despite enjoying the game a lot and really liking, loving even, a lot of the wonderful imagination that has gone into the world in this game ... it still looks and plays like a ten year old game. It feels old. I've played this all before, it's just bigger. 😐

Yeah I just made it after bloody loads of attempts to a point where he just zapped me. No tell.

 

There is a tell for the lightning zap. Admittedly I died a fair few times to it before I saw it but he jerks his arm down at the exact moment you're to press roll. It's a nice little reference.

 

Here's my fight if you wanna watch. I really liked this fight to be honest! One of those you can grind out by being patient and not getting greedy.

 

Spoiler

 

 

Slightly different approach to Hexx :lol:

Nice work! No way I could do that, I can’t concentrate that long in a fight, always make a stupid mistake. Love watching people who can though.

Can’t tear myself away from this game. Windmill Village cleared, and a puzzle to reveal an invisible building done. Solution spoiler:

 

Spoiler

I’ve heard of illusory walls, but illusory rocks?! 

 

I’ve just got to a mine and taken the conscious decision that I HAVE to stop for the night. I don’t think I’ve been to bed much before 2am lately and I’m knackered.

 

I don’t know how anyone could tire of this game. 120 hours and I haven’t been bored once.

I bought this, and finally tried it tonight.  It crashed after half an hour.  I'm feeling dispirited and discouraged.  Does it crash a lot?  I'm not sure I want to bother if that's the case.  :(

 

I may be one of the lucky ones, but the PS5 version didn't crash once for me. Cannot comment on the other platforms, but hope it doesn't happen again for you!

100 hours on PC and no crashes. Hope I didn't just jinx myself.

I am tiring of this a bit as well. It's not that it's got worse - I've just entered the Capital and it's visually amazing, it's just I'm pushing 79 hours and that is a lot of Souls and I'm nowhere near the end. Last week I was non stop playing this. This week I'm like yeah, I'll take a break for a bit.

oh good, at least it’s nothing vague then. 

They are one aspect of the game that is FOR SURE designed with online messages etc in mind.  Once you know they're a thing, you hit all the walls.  :)

Enjoyed that as always @robdood

 

You're now close to where I've got to so I'll have to play more before I can watch more lol

Thanks dude!! Finished my 4 hour stream by FINALLY beating the gatekeeper to the City with a little help from a guy who reminded me of Solaire. But with a Greatsword. Awesome.  Gonna do some coop there for a bit and help other pass that hump, he's tricksy!! 

 

Amazing session, passed the 70 hour mark tonight. I don't want it to end. :(

Decided to pick Shaded Castle for tonight’s jaunt. It’s juuuust a little bit past my level and has felt like a genuine, but achievable challenge. Just reached the boss. Hits hard, but I reckon I can do it…

What.  You've played liek 60 hours more than me.  What level are you? I cleared it at level 60ish.  

 

Maybe I'm just TOO GOOD.

I've had three crashes to desktop in a row on PC this evening while attempting some jolly vicious invading. Had today's patch fucked it?

Conversely, tonights session is one of the only ones where I've had no crashes whatsoever.  Its crashed at least once a day for me for the last 3 weeks lol.

Doing the bloody finger guy’s questline and am top of the underground bit now.  You know, the bit you saw in the distance when there earlier.  Cor that’s a scary place at times.  Called it quits for the night, the boss hits like a truck.  Tomorrow!
