I'll probably just wait for the assasination mission. Well that took about 10 mins to get tired of the brushwood armor. I'm already sick of walking so slow.

Wait until you've boosted your endurance. That's what I'm doing with the brushwood set for now. I'm using a mix of fluted armor and the black leather set, with either the steel or purple flame shield. Works pretty well, and my mobility is intact.

I am not so sure the rules about the world tendencies. Any help would be appreciated.

Purple flame shield is beastly, I remember dying so many times trying to get it from the red dragon at 1-1. If anyone needs help item duping, pm me. I already beaten and platinum the game but happy to help out. I'm at SL145.

Easier just to get pure white tendency in world 1 (if you missed the Valentine's event - that was the bext time to do it). Then the dragons are gone and you can loot their nest easily.

For anyone else that wants those items without much hassle. My strategy was luring the red dragon onto the bridge to fry the enemies. Run away to the section that leads to the Dragon area, but don't go past the first window which you should see the Red Dragon flying overhead. He'll still think your there and do another fire run, and that is the time you should take off your equipment to go grab the stuff by the dragon area except the two items guarded by the Blue Dragon's tail. You can still get them, but they require timing to dodge the Blue Dragon's tail. Or you could just wait until you get PWT.

Im wondering if this is a game I should just grab now for full price, if it might be harder to find in a few months.. or would it be cheaper? I have a bit of a backlog but seeing as it's Atlus I'm thinking maybe I should just grab it?

I can't make recommendations on price, and I don't know what's in your backlog, but I definitely recommend playing this game soon while there are a lot of players online. Online vs offline experience makes a world of difference.

yeah, price aside, play the game soon so you can play with other people.

All right guys. My final character is a faith build. I now have Istarelle, the Meat Cleaver, and the Sword of Moonlight (I have enough strength to use the Cleaver two-handed only but I figure that's how most do). They all scale well with faith.

I like Istarelle for a primary weapon when exploring. But which one should I switch to or use for fighting off PvP invaders?

SoM ignores block, so it's big with PVPers. I use it myself and have never lost a fight. Only fought one other person using it, but he screwed up trying to cast a spell and I moved in for the kill. Cleaver is another popular choice, but I find it too slow to compete. Never fought anyone using it, so I can't really comment on how easy it is to dodge.

Sony admits it should have stepped up and published DS in the States.

I think if it were first party you might have better servers and reduce some of the lag issues in the game.

it takes a big man to admit when you were wrong.

Also, I finished my first play through on Sunday!

Immediately went through 1-1, 2-1 on NG+. I have little desire to play any other games right now.

I finally beat the Maneaters, and was invaded for the first time last night.
In 3-3 the first guy just stabbed me in the back for a one hit kill.
The second guy and I had an epic battle. All I needed was one more hit to beat him, and he switched weapons and hit me with a combo that took me out. It was fun though.

I still rather have Atlus at the helm, because if it was published by SCEA then I would not have my actual rare Deluxe Edition.

Agreed.

Hopefully SCEA takes over for DS 2 so we can have proper servers.

3-3 was the monk right, I usually go offline to fight him because some ppl can be so cheap spamming firestorm when you first enter.

Finally got my platinum last night, so I'll probably put this on the back burner, and maybe just pick it up occasionally for some PvP. But I absolutely loved this game. It got me excited to play like no game has in a very long time.

How long did it take you guys to Platinum? I'm somewhere between 50-60 hours and am far from it. Pretty close to giving up. Stupid stone chunks.

I think mine was around 120 hours? But in the end I finally held someone else's Insanity Catalyst and Blueblood Sword so I only had to beat Old Monk and Maiden Astraea 3 times each instead of 4 times each. But I also spent a bunch of time trying to invade other people's worlds and doing some other messing around. So maybe that evened out some. I did get alomst all the specific weapon trophies without cheating, though I traded for the Sharp +5 and I got together with another person to combine ores to make the Marrowstone and Mercurystone weapons.

Took me about 100 hours. Probably would have taken a bit more, but ChibiJosh helped me with bladestone weapon (and a few others). I did go through the game about 3.5 times though. First playthrough took me close to 60 hours I think... with all the farming and goofing off I did in it.
