    It's a nightmare in there. I did say I would help there but am nowhere near leveled enough to take it on yet. Been enjoying my hex build too much, which has been helping robc84 out. Get yourself ready for evening co-op and you can join us. We plan on doing the dlc as well. Surely the 3 of us should be able to do the frigid outskirts.... surely.

    Started the copse last night. Wasn't my finest evening, multiple deaths by falling, mostly while jumping for loot. Although there was one through a hidden door where I just casually walked off the edge for some reason!

    I did kill the phantom before the bridge though (he's new right?) then got killed in the ambush after pulling the lever. IIRC there is another phantom to come before the boss....

    Is there any benefit to me going to purgatory at this stage? I think it is just the chariot boss that way isn't it?

    @robc84 I think there's a Bone Dust or maybe an Estus shard that way, but I'm not sure. I think you don't even need to face the boss to get it, but if you are there, you might as well. He's pretty easy.

    Copse is a pretty cool area but with easy bosses. The worst bit about the chariot boss is getting rid of the damn skeletons while the boss is still running around.

    You going to be online today at any point?

    Iíll hopefully be on then. Provided my internet doesnít play up. Just been in for a bit there. Thatís every fucker dead. A first for me. Well chuffed. Ancient dragon must have been nerfed??? He was a piece of piss. I can only presume they weakened him substantially as his aoe took a third health off max. Frigid outskirts only needed a couple runs in the end today. Tried kings pets with phantoms and got wiped so did them solo and much easier.

    @Fonzie no chance :p.

    Tell you what though. Popped on ds3 and a char that was roughly at the halfway point. Hated it. REALLY hated it. Strange. As I quite enjoyed ds3 at the time but I donít think Iíll ever go back to it now.

    I'm going to give DS3 another go after I've finished with DS2. Don't think I've played it from start to finish including all the dlc. I do like it but it does seem to lack something.

    Iíve been stuck on Darklurker for a while now, Iíve now done the dungeon enough times to clear it of enemies and have just ran out of effigies. Heís not exactly hard, but always gets me in the end. Oh well, time to get some more and try again.

    If you have rebels greatshield use that and infuse it with dark. It will help immensely. Also witches set. Anything to up your dark defense. When he splits try draw them both close by and twat them both at once, because they share a health bar you'll do double damage. He's weak as fuck to lightning so infuse with gold resin (bought from vengarl for 1500). The worst thing is that fucking dark orb portal attack with massive splash damage.

    Yeah, I have read the wiki after the 20th time, believe you me. :-) Like I said, he's not hard, but they have a tendency to get very aggressive towards the end and finally the sword, followed by fireballs followed by the dark hole thing do me in. I will get him in the end, but now have to go farming for some effigies.

    Another instance of the main game being practically challenge-less (the 3 dungeons were practically a walk in the park, with the exception of Havel, who was one-hitting me and the bastard level really wasn't designed for rolling around) with the boss taking dozens of tries.

    You'll get him. I was third try. He's so damn slow makes it almost trivial. You're just being unlucky it sounds like.

    I have a pretty versatile build which can easily deal with just about any regular enemy, but apparently is shit for bosses.

    And done. Tbf, it was as if the game suddenly decided to go easy on me. He split very late, when he was as some 1/3 health, I fired off two very big fireballs and that was that.

    Off to join the sunbros covenant and get me some medals.

    It's from the DLC, right? I never even got to the boss there. Walked in the fog gate once, but got backstabbed before I could get through.

    I must say, after being away from DS-likes for a while I'm loving DS2 now. I still think it's the weakest of the ones I've played (all bar DS3), but they're just so high above anything else, and that includes this year's GoW. I really think there's a chance I will be getting the platinum trophy here.

    As far as stuff I still want to do (not necessarily for the plat), there's frigid outskirts and the boss, ancient dragon and vendrick, and finish the big tower DLC. I haven't quite been able to beat the knight at the very bottom there, but I'm sure it's just a matter of time, with the amount of fun I'm having right now.

    Seriously, GoW seems like such a slog in comparison (and I like it very much). ;-)

    My attempts to beat the Ng+ version of the Rotten to help get the crypt darksword has not gone well. Burned a bonfire aesthetic so my build is quite low leveled and I get staggered far to easily if he hits me. May have to get the poise ring. He also destroys most my health bar if he clips me.

    No surrender though. He will be beaten tonight. Need that sword.

    Finally beat NG+ The Rotten. Took a few attempts as my build is pretty much a glass cannon. He was one shotting me so had to avoid any hits. Was worth it though. The crypt darksword is a beast now I've dark infused it. It kills the samurai things in the old iron keep in one hit so I went through there very quickly and made mince meat of Smelter.
