@t_wah: The higher the rarity of the weapon, the more familiarity you can gain with it. Which means straight up more raw damage in the end. So yeah, you should go for exotics (purple). They also have more skill slots. It does indeed get very expensive in terms of gold to keep it leveled, but as I said, it is by far the best weapon I have when I do.

Aah, I see. I think the fact that higher rarity = higher max familiarity and stat slots are the main thing I wasn't getting (I have often got purple drops that have only 2 familiarity slots and/or 2 skills). Will definitely give this a try the next time I boot up Nioh! =D Thanks.

@peacebrother:All I'm saying is that I like the heavy catalogue of all the swords in Nioh and the Dark Souls games. Would be bummed if they weren't there/lessened.

fashion souls to the max

Also this. For some reason I like matching full shinobi outfit with youngblood body armour. Must be a carry over from the fact that I really enjoyed Ninja Gaiden. Can't wait to get a white set of armour so I can match it with the warrior monk's hood in order to cosplay as a shadow clan ninja from NG1 Chapter 1!

@bkbroiler: Yes: soul matching raises the selected weapon up to the "fodder" weapon's level. If the fodder weapon has an inherited trait, then it will pass onto the selected weapon IFF the fodder weapon's familiarity level is maxed (as in you fill in whatever max familiarity level it has, not the overall familiarity capacity itself). Of course there are occasionally some exceptions to this. Thankfully familiarity goes up for a weapon even if it is not used, but as long as it is in the secondary slot. This familiarity build-up applies to all weapons: melee or ranged, as long as it is in weapon slot 1/2 or ranged slot 1/2.

Kusarigama and Axe. I love big slow stuff, and the Kusarigama feels unique and fresh after so many Dark Souls filled with swords.

Fair enough, but the sword is like the Ryu of these type of games. Wouldn't a Street Fighter without Ryu feel a bit odd?

I have been sticking with swords as primary and spears as secondary. I find that wielding swords allow me to be more aggressive when engaging revenants, while spears are good for bosses/enemies that require that extra reach (not to mention some of the later humanoid enemies that don't flinch at regular attacks but are susceptible to the spear's position swap). Someone should make a poll so we can see the numbers! =)

Yeah, it seems as though they just remix both the enemy placement and enemy type to try to force players to adapt and try new strategies. I'm actually really enjoying them. Also I think you are right about the bosses having extra abilities (and probably more health/stats too): Onryoki gets an extra fast (much less animation wind-up) ball-chain throw during his second state in the twilight level.

I did the vampire lady twilight mission last night and thought it was a cool twist on the regular mission. Also it seemed like the boss had an extra attack on her umbrella combo but I'm not sure if she just didn't do that my first time fighting her.

It's funny how I kinda already knew all that, but for some reason didn't want to do any of it until you've just spelt it out. I think I will go back later and try to craft a katana that suits my play style =) I imagine it gets super expensive at some point? I realized that prices go up disproportionately when you soul match high level coloured loot. Do you generally stick with coloured loot or just plain normal ones, and reforge those? Also I'm guessing you would always want a weapon with the highest familiarity potential.

@ares42: Soul Matching raises the level of your gear. It doesn't ever become obsolete in that sense. I have dual swords now that I've already Soul Matched upwards of 30 levels higher and it is still by far the best weapon I have. I doubt you ever have to get perfect gear per se, it's just something you can do if you want to play more Nioh I think.

@oursin_360 Your chances of certain rarity when forging depends on the quality of materials you use. If you use exotic quality materials for every single slot, you have 35% chance to get an exotic. It is how I got my weapon that I'm using now (it took a bunch of tries though). It's useful if you want a specific weapon. I needed this one because I was only finding dual swords that scaled with Skill and Strength. But I needed Skill and Heart. I got a crap exotic roll after a few tries and then after a while I got a pretty decent one with life steal and fire damage. Then, I reforged a bunch of the perks and ultimately added an inherited perk. It's super badass now. But that's only one weapon. I can do the same for a Spear which is my secondary and all the armor.

@big_denim: Cool. I have just bought Vermintide off the winter sale. So will practise a bit before then!@fatalbanana:

@fatalbanana: Yeah, that sounds great. I'll send a message to ctroy1.

Looking forward to do some multi-player with you all.

@big_denim: Hey! Sorry for the late response. Truthfully I had given up on getting a response from this thread, but am still interested. Time wise, the difference looks to be 11 hours ahead. I usually game around 8 pm - 10 pm, so that would be 7 am - 9 am your time? It looks rather inconvenient, so don't worry if you'd rather not. But feel free to add me anyway.

Also I just realized that my internet connection is normally around 10 mbps and can peak up to 20, which is not terrible at all (internationally) and so ping might not be as big as an issue as I thought it would be.

Greetings everyone,

I was hoping to get a multi-player party going to play the following games:

1. Helldivers;

2. God Eater Resurrection and Rage Burst

And hopefully if the turnout is good, maybe move on to some of the other games I have always wanted to play, but never did:

3. Gangbeasts;

4. Earth Defense Force 4.1;

5. Toukiden Kiwami

6. Warhammer: Vermintide;

My steam ID is 'den7525' (http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198018328254). Also just thought that anyone interested should be aware that I am currently based in Brunei (South-East Asia) so the difference in internet-speed/ping could be quite significant (my peak internet speed is 10 mbps).

Thanks. Hope to hear from you all soon.

Hey everyone, I am actually looking for people to play helldivers on steam. I am aware that the last post on this topic was nearly a year ago. By any chance are any of you still interested in playing through the campaign from scratch (I have just started a new game)?

My steam id is 'den7525'.

Edit: Also just FYI, I am currently based in Brunei (South-East Asia), so the internet-speed/ping has quite a gap compared to most internet speeds outside thee region.
