pretty sure i used an adblocker even when on GB before subscribing. only subscribed because I wanted to support these guys, it pretty much is the only way too, since i doubt anyone is clicking any ads in this day and age. even if they do i doubt there are ANY conversions coming from GB users. the ads i saw here on the site never really seemed to mesh well with the target audience.
i really want to have bioshock, but my problem is, that over here it's censored. so a gift trade would be cool (obviously with a US duder).
the only thing I can currently offer is a copy of saints row the third i got from the humble bundle (so I would give you the code, since I don't know what happens if I validate it on steam). that would be a bad deal for you since right now bioshock runs for more.
so: what would you like to have with that? or we can just wait until the thing gets cheaper again. PM-s would be great as i tend to not read the forums much.
you should use as many idols as you need. if you feel you are good enough at the game, then use all of them, but it does get crazy. what I did was use those with the most bonus, but without using the really dangerous ones (health degeneration I think it was, among others)
as for loadouts, i usually use the kael hammer as a melee + another one. it depends what you are into. i used the rifles the most.as with idols, just try it out and if it isn't fun anymore, then change something. also there are a select few drinks which are really useful, but I guess you'll find that out on your own
also note this: XP and shards are not very important. gather as many as you can, but don't destroy the enjoyment by going in with many idols or anything. by the end you will have more than enough stuff to upgrade your fav weapons
@xobballox:thanks! dex seems the way to go. I like the samurai swords and the way curved swords work. also..spears.
the strength weapons seem very sluggish and till now, every one I have has a weird attack pattern. i'm screwed with the black knight weapons i'm afraid. killed all of them except for the kiln and anor londo i believe. as for the serpents: i've been killing them for a while now without any luck. will try later on. their weapons and the gravelord greatsword I've pinned as the last acceptable swords for a str build.
the reason why I asked about respecing is because of the positively ridiculous ammounts of souls i need for a single level. I've spent the earnings of almost the entire sen's fortress on a level, which is crazy
