I signed up for a new trial (21 days) and joined the chat channel. Robin Libere is my char name, just logged in before the maintenance window though. Set up skill training queue. Haven't done a application yet.
Do you guys have a problem with a more casual player? During the weekddays i can't play that much but in the weekends i'll be on more!
Hearing Patrick talk about Eve, got me wanting to play again. I never found any nice people to play with though. So i would like to join the GiantBomb corp. I'm a euro player though, don't know if that is a problem?
Hey Pat, here's a couple of handy tips for you in case you ever decide to play Dark Souls!
Don't use a shield, they are useless and will only weigh you down, slowing your attacks, get a good off-hand weapon instead.
Pyromancy is similarly useless as most enemies have strong fire resistance and quite a few types will just absorb the hits instead, powering up their defences.
The majority of NPCs in the game drop better stuff than they sell and drops less stuff as time goes on, thus they are more useful dead than alive. Kill any NPC you come across without hesitation or remorse, even those that you might mistake for regular enemies.
Fire Keeper Soul is a very useful item that will give you 5 Humanity when you use it. Since you want a lot of Humanity on you at all times it is best to use it immediately once you get it.
There has been this long standing myth that you can get weapons from cutting off the tails of dragons, you can even find it in a lot of the Wikis on the web. A lot of people have wasted their time trying to do this but it has been proven to just have been a misunderstanding when someone confused Dark Souls with Monster Hunter.
Nobody knows what the "poise" stat does so don't bother, heck I've seen a lot of people with high poise standing around trying to figure it out while being pummeled by enemies and not even reacting to their hits, their devotion is really staggering.
Don't bother trying to figure out what you want to be in the early goings. Soon you will be drowning in souls to put into every stat anyway so any sort of plan will eventually be useless.
