• Kaos999 posted a message in the forum topic Could I get some spoiler free advice for a dark souls n00b? on the Dark Souls II board.

    Dont get stuck on shield and sword tactics, experiment around with different styles until one feels right for you. No wrong way or right way when it comes to playstyles. Also there's an item that res...

  • Kaos999 posted a message in the forum topic Dark Souls noob with questions on the Dark Souls II board.

    Ds2 is the vastly better game. Tighter controls, more fighting animations/abilites, better dual wielding, better pve/PvP options, etc. Good luck making it through the high level gear invaders who lik...

  • Kaos999 posted a message in the forum topic Build question - Miracle/Hex on the Dark Souls II board.

    I second not gimping yourself at 150 as it's extremely detrimental in DS2 and unnecessary. My sl389 with over 60million soul memory still has zero problems summoning or getting invaded in ng+.Same wit...

    @jarmahead"The game is more flawed than most of it's fans will admit"Admission would tarnish their achievements, so no they will never admit to the games flaws, and unfortunately the devs will continu...

    And every other invader I get is haveled out. What's that mean? My point was that people are going to use gear that benefits them, unless you now tell me that everyone you PvP is naked.

  • Kaos999 posted a message in the forum topic Are you actually having fun? on the Dark Souls II board.

    412 hours in and still enjoying myself. One sl359, another sl271, another at sl112. While some of my playtime is frustrating due to the dumbass delay between button inputs (should be able to go from R...

    @eggmithCouldn't agree more, damn shame they hamstrung the game trying to appease a vocal segment of the fanbase instead of just making a much better game for the entire fanbase.@primusgotta tell ya, ...

  • Kaos999 posted a message in the forum topic The (Inevitable) Hate/Complain Thread on the Dark Souls II board.

    Really hate the loot system in this one as i've spent half my playtime either farming for souls or farming for gear/items. Should change the name to farming souls instead. With over 400 hours and repe...

  • Kaos999 posted a message in the forum topic Being a cop's tough... on the Dark Souls II board.

    If the game did a better job at having more equipment with similar stats then you'd see a variety of different loadouts instead of havel's nation. Who in their right mind is going to go into a competi...

  • Kaos999 posted a message in the forum topic Hit a bit of a wall, need some advice on the Dark Souls II board.

    Glad you beat them! As far as upgrading, as good as the craftsman hammer is it requires twinkling which is extremely rare to come by until later in the game so upgrading the good ole Billys club will ...

  • Kaos999 posted a message in the forum topic Watching Let's Plays... on the Dark Souls II board.

    Love this thread! It was watching ENB that got me into the souls series a while ago, gotta thank him for showing me the series is only as hard/easy as you make it. I initially thought the game had ton...

  • Kaos999 posted a message in the forum topic Interesting glitch makes torches useful again on the Dark Souls II board.

    @MicNot for me as it's much quicker to down a flask than to go through that slow walk animation at 115 agility. Seriously. Dont understand why adp gets ignored as even when my dodge timing is off I st...

  • Kaos999 posted a message in the forum topic Is there a reason to hold on to old equipment? on the Dark Souls II board.

    I've made more than half a million souls selling unwanted gear to galvin so it is well worth it to sell him extra gear. The giant ring you get from the giant king is worth almost 2000 souls alone, aft...

  • Kaos999 posted a message in the forum topic Forbes: "Is Dark Souls II The Worst Game Ever Made?" on the Dark Souls II board.

    Apparently it appears that he feels playing videogames for a sense of achievement is meaningless and I completely agree with him. It's a sad day when people use videogames to give meaning and a sense ...

  • Kaos999 posted a message in the forum topic Interesting glitch makes torches useful again on the Dark Souls II board.

    They've always been useful for me. Dont understand that because something is useless for you its useless for everyone? I've only used my flasks for healing, making the other healing items completely u...

  • Kaos999 posted a message in the forum topic The Matthewmatosis critique video on the Dark Souls II board.

    Nothing funnier than people spitting out their opinions as if they were facts. Can't we just accept that what you like about the souls games someone else probably hates?I don't understand the hate for...

  • Kaos999 posted a message in the forum topic Poison gear ? on the Dark Souls II board.

    Poison is a great choice for PvP. Even if they are carrying poison moss if you stay right on them they don't have time to heal and poison is VERY effective in DS2. I can't even count how many players ...

    Depends on how high his faith level is really. For the tanks that dumped all their points in str/vig they'll go down a lot faster and easier. Haven't lost to a tank build yet as they are helpless if ...
