They are pretty much garbage, the black armor set is kinda cool, but you get that later on anyways. Plus that part of the preorder stuff seems broken because I had to get the black armor the normal way even though it was suppsed to be with the pre order code in the black armor edition.

@zevvion: I definitely do, I'm just going through ng++ because just buying the spells from that dude in ng++ instead of the like 500 kills you have to get in like 2 or 3 seperate covenants for the trophies. I have a faith/str character and a pyromancer/sometimes sorcerer and I just made a character that I plan to go pure strength with like a great club or something. As much fun as pvp sounds to me, I always have more fun making new characters and co-oping through the game again.
Well I finally got invaded for the first time in ng++ and someone one shot me from full health with Wrath of the Gods, which seems pretty insane, I'm a faith build too so I guess when I get WotG in a little I might actually start invading to take advantage of that before it gets nerfed. There's no way they'll leave it that powerful, one shotting someone with armor that has pretty good magic and physical defenses and 2200 HP doesn't seem right, I don't care how much of a pain it is to get that spell.
So yeah I'd say its worth doing ng++ to get and abuse that spell asap.
1 had better atmosphere, and as weird as it sounds a better story. But 2 is a better game. I am tempted to go with 1 being better, but I think that would be nostalgia talking since it was my first souls game. For me they are equal, each does some things better than the other, so I didn't pick either option.
I did probably 95% of it by myself, but every other playthrough has been all co op all the time. Its definitely not the wrong way to play, so don't listen to anyone who says that, Dark Souls is a lot of fun to play co op. I mainly did it by myself because this was the first souls game where I could jump in right at the start, don't ask me how that's relevant to playing solo lol, just felt like the thing to do this time. I played all the other ones a mix of co op and solo, probably around 50/50.
I don't know, without the actual values or percentages none of this means much to me, could be huge changes or barely noticable. I don't think any of those bosses needed nerfs though, maybe lost sinner, but only the ng+ version.
Yeah, I could handle the forest invasions in DS 1, but those belfries are pretty insane. I've just been pulling the plug for those areas honestly, it wouldn't be so bad if there was maybe some sorta cooldown, so you could enjoy a pvp battle or two while in there, but at some point you just wanna move on because the area takes like 2 minutes to fully explore. Although I suppose it can be kinda rough if you can't solo the gargoyles, I didn't find them much worse than the DS 1 gargoyles, except there was 1 more at a time. It kinda seems like everyone's given up on invading anywhere else too, I've put around 110 hours into the game with 2 characters and still have only been invaded in those belfries.
