I haven't been consuming my Madman's Knowledge just out of curiosity, so don't have as much Insight as I probably should. I have no idea if there is any benefit to not consuming them, apart from not upping the difficulty sooner.

Not that I've heard. Just remember if you want to use that Insight vendor you have to have, at least, 10 Insight. It's pretty dumb so if you're shopping and spend Insight to where your below 10 you can't shop again until you have 10 again.

That's why I keep spending my Insight to keep it at a nice level. Didn't know the magic number was 15 though. I figured it was 10 or something.

Ludwig's Holy Blade seemed like the best weapon to me by far plus it has the coolest look to it. All the 2 handers are slow relative to the one handers but in comparison to two handed weapons from previous souls games they feel soooo fast. I'm sure there are some things I missed though, like i never got a scythe. Does anyone know if there are new weapons that you can get in NG+?

I've got Ludwig's upgraded to +6 and it hits damn hard. Can one shot those big goons with a single charged R2.

So here's ENB making it look easy as usual. Always has a knack for making looking worthless.

@kishinfoulux: Cleric Beast seems to have more health but it's attacks are more manageable than Father Gascoigne so if you're careful you can beat him early on although it will take a while. I beat Father G and then gained a few levels and even upgraded my weapon and the Cleric Beast was still taking only 30 damage or so from each hit, although I'm using the sword cane which is fast but weaker than all the other starting weapons (it does have B stat scaling though)

How is the Cane when upgraded a little? I'm thinking of messing with it, at the very least, for crowd control.

So far I don't have much interest in the stuff I've found or unlocked in the shop. Part of that is because the Axe is too OP to give up and has a nice moveset. I want to mess with the Threaded Cane, but I've heard some awful things about how weak it is and, while great for trash mobs, does jack shit on bosses. Might be worth upgrading on just for trash maybe. No interest in any of the Saw stuff (blade and spear), or the Rifle Spear. I wanna check out Ludwig, once I unlock it, but beyond that there isn't much.

For what it's worth, I have beaten 5 bosses with the Threaded Cane and had no problem doing so. It does do very little damage, but I am using visceral attacks almost exclusively, and it doesn't seem like I'm at a disadvantage using it. I like using the Threaded Cane most right now.

Yeah I have to get better at doing those, especially on bosses. If the Ludwig doesn't pan out I may get one and upgrade it just for crowd control scenarios as a secondary.

@kishinfoulux: but why though? It's kind of true. Majority of the complaints about the souls games basically amount to it not being a hand holding simulator.

I see legit questions get asked and it's always "git gud". No matter what.

Yeah I'm mad because I'm not a childish imbecile. You got me.

@kishinfoulux: Did they kick your cat or something?

I just hate elitism and they are the worst of the worst. They act like master gamers, which is funny because even by their own admission the games are "easy". Also don't ever criticize their beloved games. I've literally seen a bunch of fans defending the damn load times. I'm not even joking about that. Did you know long load times are good? Well guess what? Souls fanboys think they are.

git gud scrub

This is the perfect response to this topic.

No it's the typical Souls fanboy childish response. Continuing the fine tradition of being the worst fans in gaming.

You've clearly never met a moba player, let alone played against 9 high-skilled and arrogant jerks.

Yeah true I know they're up there as well.

@kishinfoulux: the souls fan base is awesome. The "git Gud" thing usually is in a response for someone complaining about game mechanics that are very much deliberate choices and attributing them to "artificial difficulty". Souls isn't here to cater to how you like to game, you have to play by its rules. As for the specific complaint in the OP here, the character movement being off has really never even crossed my mind.

There are people in the fanbase that are great like ENB, but for every one of him, there are tons of asshats. And no "git gud" is just thrown out willy knilly to EVERYTHING. It's like this stupid meme that they find hilarious or something when in reality it's dumb as shit.

I've never seen a Souls fan just tell somebody they suck. If there's one thing we love, it's talking tactics, and any excuse to do so is a good excuse.

These games aren't for everybody.

I refuse to believe you haven't encountered this. All I ever see from legit questions asked is "herp derp git gud".

I feel like in boss fights I'm fighting more against the bad camera or awful terrain. Just give me a circular arena damn it. Cleric Beast fight was awful with the camera, and Father fight sucked because obstructions everywhere.
