Sorry for being that guy, but those health/stamina bars are making me cringe :P Grats on beating him though, you obviously did very well.

Now go back and one-shot him.

@nekroskop: From what I saw in the beta, it looks to be quite impressive! Can't wait to see more.

First thing I thought also haha. Congrats brother.

@buneroid: @ares42: @korwin: I finished at level 70 or so with 50 intelligence having gone the glass cannon route in sorcery. So my vitality was 22 and my endurance was 14 lol. Looking back on it. Not so clever!

good job bro, now you can finally dive deeper by watching lore-videos and speedruns on youtube!

@jadeskye: Considering it worked out in the end, and it was personalized to what you wanted to do. Totally clever! I've seen 50 INT glass cannons completely wreck shit.

I don't know if you have any interest in playing more. But there are a few simple things you could do in New Game+ to make that build do exponentially more burst damage. :D

This is why I can't play it, because I would have to force myself to complete it, and what will I have gained? What's the motivation to do so?

Congratulations man! Kudos on going for a glass cannon too, that ain't easy. Particularly at the beginning. I've been working on an Int. build lately, they can be really powerful.

Edit: OH! I almost forgot, PRAISE THE SUN!!! \±/

@carlos1408: But by the end, your taking out most of the bosses in your sleep with 4-6 easy casts, particularly if you go dex-int for quick casts. Actually, I'm not sure if I'm a huge fan on how magic is balanced in Dark Souls.

@naru_joe93: If you have to force yourself there isn't any point. I finished it because I enjoyed it. And if you don't you shouldn't.

But I wouldn't mind if you gave it another shot, it's a neat game.

You can go even more glass cannon. The crown of dusk increases your spell and pyromancy damage by 20%. The red tearstone ring gives another 50% increase in damage.

#25 Posted by Jadeskye (4366 posts) -

@groin: I had the Red tearstone but shit I could barely stay alive as it was!

Nice work!

I've been thinking of starting a new character since nothing else of interest is happening on the games front.

edit: Oops, spoke too soon. Escape Goat is out on steam right now!

Congrats duder. How about that ending, eh? It all really came together and paid off.

Tell me more... =D

@jadeskye: Well, I was going to say Crown of Dusk and Red Tearstone or Power Within. Since I saw you didn't have either on in the screenshot. But you already said that's a little bit too much glass-cannon.

I can't see if you have it or not from the screenshot, but the sorcerer trainer sells a damage boosting ring too. Dragon Bellowcrest?

#30 Posted by Jadeskye (4366 posts) -

@tobbrobb: ah yes i had that too. Great ring. i beat sif and four kings having forgot to put it on. D'oh!

Just recently finished the NG last weekend! Finished my NG+ today and rolled a bandit. Please, don't do what I'm doing to myself. I offer this as a warning, my friend! Also, congrats duder!
