hehe my first time using the full suite , id reeealy love more control over the drums , i guess i can edit the loops somehow externally , mabye they will add a tool and team workshop support for custom loops.

also some inbuilt compression on the synths would be nice , while tweaking the advanced settings its easy to overdrive things too much.

for pyromancy try flame swathe or lingering flame , i have 2 flame swathes taking up 4 attunement slots but its worth it for a goto nuke , it makes a joke out of a certain boss with fire weakness , and in gneral it feels less spammy and you at least have to plant the "bombs" itelligently , that being said its pretty great when staring down giant bastards with giant shields that are just baiting you to come close and lingering flame is just godlike when you cast it right before being swarmed heh

also i was saving a ridiculous amount of souls when i got to sl 120 , but ive since given in and gone to 150 , migth stop there but im having fun playign with all the weapons ive found , and ive use alot of soul vessels already.

keep us posted i want to hear how lategame enemies start treating you hehe

ironicly most normal enemies are giving me more pain in ng++ (just ng+ but i used a bunch of ascetics) than any of the bosses, im sad that im gonna have to resort to cheesy tactics and cant really justify 2hand no shield melee fighting everything ever again :( , find myself running for the safety of a boss room more often than not now. sucks when the boss has friends

sounds like you're in for more fun later on , im havin fun with ng++ now so i can imagine ng company of champs isnt that nasty but some bosses are definately complete dicks with ng+ damage

i cant decide if i want to do company of champs IN ng+5 conditions or just start a new character for it , or just bite the bullet and start going for the 0 bonfires run

@golguin: the uchigatana feels slower than ds1 , but its still the fastest katana in ds2. the manslayer (poison katana) has a really slow swing in comparison , but i still prefer that due to the poison effect and stacking poison bns with dex etc .. (poison uchigatana loses too much scaling for me to want to try it) fuck that blacksteel piece of shit

i found my +10 uchi is a bit weaker than my +10 falchion but the range and moveset helps alot (i basically reserve my falchion for killing crystal lizards with its r2 attack)

the key benefit to katanas seems to be the direct hit system favouring the entire length of their blade , (my falchion has to hit on the tip to get the best damage, uchi can hit on the tip or close to hilt and does the same damage)

also use the black knight halberd when i feel like it, i got the curved dragon greatsword and its kind of a joke
