    That is a really good point.From the Rebel Shield we know that Velstadt had a counterpart, Raime. The two are described the right and left hands of the king. The shield says something along the lines ...

  • rocketboot posted a message in the forum topic So the second DLC came out today, thoughts?. on the Dark Souls II board

    This one has been easier for me so far, but that might be because I hadn't played in about a month when I picked up the first one. Those skeleton enemies go down pretty easily for me so having 2-3 thr...

    Hey guys, back for some wild speculation after finally playing through the Crown of the Sunken King. I've been busy as hell since it came out and didn't get a chance to touch it until a few days ago,...

    @mosespippy: That's actually a much more interesting way to implement Soul Memory, the multiplayer system would probably work better if instead of matchmaking being I tasted by soul memory your load o...

    @benspyda: There are way too many cool armours that are only attainable as ultra rare drops from NG+ black phantoms.Anyway a shared stach would only work if you could only access it after NG+.

    The lady wizards in Amana used to do a bit more damage and ther magic missiles had a more effective homing effect. I've been told they had a greater range too but I didn't notice a difference. It was ...

    @karkarov: I feel like that's a Miyazaki move, there's not nearly enough dev trolling in Dark Souls 2. Or rather the trolls just aren't as clever as the previous games.

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

    @karkarov: Yeah at least everyone more or less agrees that nerf was unnecessary. Didn't the patch reduce the damage AND the homing of the soul arrows? One of those changes would have still made it a l...

    @tobbrobb: The area is simply challenging your play style by restricting movement and forcing you to check your footing. Your options for melee would be to get a shield with magic resistance, which is...

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

    I'm down with Demon Ruins and New Londo, which are supposed to be post Lordvessel areas but I usually accessed them earlier. Likewise with Tomb of the Giants, which I know I liked at some point but af...

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

    I'd like to suggest that instead of looking at this game saying "Oh Miyazaki was absent and it really shows in this detail and that design decision and that's why this game is worse than Dark Souls an...

    I originally suspected that DLC for this game would be accessed via the Ashen Mist Heart as memories in boss rooms or other random locations, but I'm not so sure anymore. It doesn't look like we'll b...
