Did you ever do that destiny raid with stotch yet?

I did a couple years ago.  He was very gentle with me.

It is crazy to me that people think Dark Souls II is the easiest one. Maybe if you read how to do everything beforehand and watch videos. It doesn't help that it takes half an hour to drink an Estus Flask.

Which version are you playing, PS3 or PS4 (Scholar of the First Sin)? The latter wasn't too difficult aside from the DLC content, and it has different item and enemy placements compared to the PS3 version.

PS4, never played the PS3 version. Finally beat the Pursuer. I imagine it's hard cause I'm still early in the game. I'm starting to pick up better gear.

If you want an easy time against most of the enemies in the game, buy the Mace from the blacksmith in Majula and keep an eye out for the Craftman's Hammer--I got it relatively early on, about 3-5 hours in--and kept it (obviously upgrading it whenever I got enough materials) until I got the plat 70-80 hours later.

One thing to keep in mind, there are several paths out of Majula. If you get too deep down one path and are having trouble due to difficulty, you can always try another path. A lot of people keep following the Forest of the Giants path and get stuck either at the Pursuer or the boss that follows after him. Though they beefed up the difficulty of Heide's Tower of Flame in SotFS.

 

Now that the Pursuer is dead you can get that Craftsman Hammer if you want to try it out.

Later on it gets easier but DS2 is one of the tougher Souls beginnings since they give you so few flasks to start with and the default roll doesn't have as many invincibility frames, you have to level attunement or adaptability (which increases agility) in order to gain more i-frames. Agility also speeds up the flask drinking animation.

I should probably get back to those games. I quit DS1 cuz it was a janky piece of shit in need of a remaster, but DS2 on PS4 I was having a good time with but just stopped playing for whatever reason.

I've taken out the Lost (or last?) Giant, Dragonrider, and the Pursuer. I've explored No Man's Wharf almost completely but haven't checked out the Lost Bastille yet although I did light the bonfire when I accidentally went there after beating the Pursuer.

I'll have to check out that hammer. I've been using a +3 Heide Knight Sword and a +3 Fire Longsword. Finding the Ring of Binding was also a huge help.

Is the hammer that good that I should spend more points in strength? I'm only at 12 right now. Great thing about finding that guy was all the free upgrade materials. Got my Heide sword to +5 and Fire Sword to +4. Also took out the Ruin sentinels.

Two nights ago, I got some pretty bad food poisoning and it was coming out of me at both ends at the same time. At one point, I didn't even have to push and water flowed out of my ass like a faucet. Looking back at it, I see it as being the perfect metaphoric representation of your life.

But my life isn't anything like a faucet. And I don't get food poisoning because I don't eat garbage and take care of myself.

 

You suck at metaphors almost as much as you suck at games.

Wait.

 

Is this all because I wasn't happy you got a C on your history quiz or whatever? Geez, I'm sorry. Good job. Now I hope we can be friends.

Thats because he buys every game at full price on release day, plays it for 5 minutes and goes back to Destiny.
