The most frustrating part about Dark Souls 2 for me is getting invaded by 2 people at once and sometimes with enemies helping them. Some people haven't had these annoying invasions happen to them that often, but it's happened a lot to me - with no clear explanation of why it's significant to the story. Moreover, I keep getting summoned as a Grey Spirit and it's something that I absolutely want to avoid. There's no fun being summoned into a room filled with enemies and a dude just standing there waiting to backstab you as mobs hit you.
I've never really liked the PvP aspect in Souls games but I don't want to play unconnected because seeing messages and bloodstains is integral to the Soul's experience.
Another mechanic that annoys me, is the knowing that there are a limited number of drops of Pharros Lockstones and the fact that there are totally some keyholes that only exist to troll you. It's not so much that I mind dying - but it's knowing that I can totally waste these items and lose out on potential content areas (the Bels areas). I feel that stuff like this only serves to deter players from exploration and makes them always go check up online for guides.
But anyhow, enough about me whining - I've had a great time with this game and it's sucked away hours from my life.
What's frustrates you the most about Dark Souls 2?
