I never claimed I wasn't "over-leveled" (whatever that means). I messed around a lot at the end and took my time. I wasn't trying to hurry. I spent extra souls on levels when I had them. Big deal.
I'm not sure what advice you are talking about except for not using the spear. I tried some other weapons, didn't like 'em, went back to the spear. That was my preference. I think I did follow your advice on Four Kings and went in two-handing Quelaag's Fury Sword and wearing full Havel armor. If that was you that mentioned that strategy that worked pretty well, then thanks for that (and I did follow it and said so here before). By the way, I did that without a summon
. I also said just a few days ago how I used that strategy against the Capra Demon in NG+ and it made him super-easy (after he destroyed me with my standard light armor/lightning spear build). So there I applied your advice to a completely different situation - turns out I'm not a complete idiot! Wow!
I certainly never claimed I was some expert at the game (well, good enough to make it through, anyway, but certainly no pro - in fact I've said that many times!). But you constantly tossing out how great you are and how bad I am is completely unnecessary and pretty annoying. What is the point? Especially now that you come in and quote some really old news of mine (from end of NG when I've moved way beyond that) to bring it all up again. You mentioned my "ridiculous over-levelling" as a reason why I didn't get summons when in fact I did get them - so clearly you just wanted to comment on how over-leveled I was to make some sort of point. I just don't get it. I apologize that I used summons here and there and took advantage of AkariK's offer to not have to drudge through to a NG++ when I've already spent 120+ hours on this game. That seems to offend you for some reason that I don't quite get.
It's just a freaking game that I happened to enjoy quite a lot in the way I
chose to play it.
