    Hah, hell yeah! I've calmed down a bit now, that was intense near the end. I was so fed up of being one-shot by his dark laser in the latter stages, despite some extreme rolling, I almost gave up. It's always the same in Soulsbornekiro games though, keep pushing and pushing, and eventually something gives!

    Thanks for that video you posted the other day by the way, it really helped to learn his patterns and claim the victory. I better understood the importance of 'staying in front of him' as much as possible, which also helped bait some attacks that opened windows to damaging him.

    I used my Sharp Washing Pole+10 in the end, the extra range you get on that weapon was super useful for hitting his head.

    @Rodderz Yesss!!! Nice one!!! He really is an absolute fucker!!

    With hindsight, a great boss because slowly but surely he makes sense. But until he dies, he's a rage inducing impossible twat 😂

    For all my love of this game I never got the dlc. UNTIL NOW! Just got to a dodgy looking bridge and half way across I noticed a ladder behind me, then I went ice skating down some ramp and I'm a looong way away from the church on the other side of that bridge. Already loving the atmosphere. The fps are pretty shocking, haven't noticed that before.

    Woah who thought it would be a good idea to have a tree platforming section!? Those big boy Vikings are beasts.

    Currently on Ng+3, I think it might be my favourite of the series.

    Just about to get stuck into Champion Gundyr, love that fight.

    considering doing the platinum, but holy shit it looks convoluted!

    Looks like I'm playing this dlc on Ng+. When I purchased it yesterday I had this horrible feeling I wouldn't have a character that could jump straight in. I have five characters and thankfully one (maybe two) could go straight in. I didn't fancy playing through the main game again to play the dlc.

    @OllyJ The plat is a pain in the balls because of all the rings and covenant items. To be fair if you're NG+3 you should pretty much have most of the rings anyway.

    Been playing through this with my boy the last couple of weeks and despite me always saying I like DS3 the least out of the trilogy... I've been bloody loving it. Decided to leg it straight to Ariandel as early as poss to do a crazy sprint up the tower and nab the Millwood Axe as it's beastly.

    @wuntyate is that the axe I got after all the vikings after you fall down? I can't use it, needed faith.

    @wuntyate I just love the chunkyness of DS3, everything just feels weighty, some of the best bosses, music, and locations.

    I need to maybe make a lost of rings and gestures I need, hoping that maybe PS5 might bring in a new playerbase after Demon's Souls.

    @Bichii Eh, it IS after you fall down but it's up the tower. You don't need faith for it. Not sure what you've got there tbh.

    @wuntyate it was on a corpse after you fought 3 of the big Viking dudes after falling in a pit. Creates earthquakes I think from the description.

    Ahhhh THAT bit. No the millwood axe is before that. You know after you first encounter the big wolf, the area after that has some ruins, some millwood knights rocking about and a big tower? It's up there.

    What build are you btw? If you're a STR build it's a fucking beast.

    @OllyJ Yeah I'm sure it will. I'm actually looking forward to ANOTHER run through at 60fps if I'm honest!

    Yeah pure strength. Think I might have missed it if it's by the first big wolf. Currently rocking +5 dragon tooth.

    So, is pyromancy just absolute shite then I have a +10 flame, and witch ring, with the pyromancer set and it just does hardly anything damage wise.

    Is magic the same? I really fancy going for some sort of fun build, but it all seems a bit weak?

    Eh? Pyromancy is op in DS3. It's funny how beast mode my fire character is.

    Am I right in saying pyro in DS3 scales with INT & FTH? A bit like hexes did in DS2? I know it doesn't scale in DS1 and scales with EITHER INT or FTH in DS2 but they changed it again for DS3 didn't they.

    If so, Olly, maybe your stats just need looking at.

    Yeah I think it's that. It did both and it was monstrous. Ended up with a mix of pyro and hex magic.

    @wuntyate ah, maybe that's it, if I assumed it was like DS1, then I probably need to look at the stats.

    Oooohhhhhh completely missed this entire area. After killing big wolf I walked right instead of left.

    So got to the bottom and beat Wolfy and his mate second time and although I thought I was at the end it felt like it wasnt done, the story wasn't complete. Turns out there is a small winch lever in a very dark pit I needed to turn! Then finally I faced the real boss. What a great boss battle and cut scenes. All done now onto the ringed city..oh ps wunty I got the axe and +10 it. :). Heavy gem into it as well for the strength scaling.

    @Bichii

    Nice work, I got some amazing weapons for my Dex build from the Ashes dlc!

    You'll be meeting some lovely Angels (non-boss enemies) in the Ringed City dlc soon, and when I say lovely, I mean fucking annoying 😀.

    I'll be happy if there are no more enemies that have attack that come from under ground! So many exploding ground attacks in ashes.

    Big sigh

    I really do hate every single From software boss that has more than one boss. Just got to a ringed city boss fight where you fight two demons at the same time. Only tried it once but almost can't be bothered already. You can't see anything, as always with these games with giant bosses one is pounding on you and you can't see shit or where the other boss is.

    @Bichii that's not even the annoying part about that boss fight. It gets... Worse.

    Yeah it's nice. I like it's little charge buff move. Has decent speed for a strength weapon. If it does get more annoying I'll just summon. Not interested in shit boss fights, I'll give it a few goes and see how annoying it is.
