The Undead Settlement looks incredible, down to the naked Orkos. If you ever wanted to know what Orko from He-Man looks like nude, then buy this game.

So I decided to restart with a different character because I made some bad choices building my character and also upgrading my equipment. Spent ages on my first character looking for decent dual wielding weapons but if you start as a mercenary you get dual scimitars right from the beginning, which is WAY more fun. Especially since you Never. Use. Shields! anyway.

Shields are for cowards, guys.

I've ditched the shield too because they're next to useless in this game. Now my Squishy Assassin is dual-wielding a +3 Refined Longsword and an Estoc. I want a quick switch button to swap hands so I can juggle the weapon skills. A shield split with the estoc follwed up by a vertical thrust fom the longsword would fuck them Lothric knights up real good.

I hardly ever use the special weapon skills at all really, so the only thing that annoys me about my current setup is that the scimitars have a shitty slash/cartwheel thing instead of a regular kick so shield-carrying enemies are a bit of a pain to deal with. But you can solve that by just rolling behind them and backstabbing, which works most of the time.

I mean I GUESS I could carry around a second right-hand weapon to switch to whenever i want to kick but that seems impractical and also my equip load is high enough really.

well I just got my face caved in by one of Gwyn's knights who's inexplicably parked himself in the middle of the Road of Sacrifices, so I tried the other direction and was set upon by a pair of Darkwraiths. There appears to be a portal to the first game in this area.

I love how I can kill bosses and be a badass all round but still get wrecked by those fucking knights because OH GOD STOP ATTACKING FOR A SECOND OR AT LEAST GIVE ME AN OPENING okay I see an opening oops no 180 arc attack I'm dead as hell now fuck this game forever.

My least favourite enemy in the game is that bobbleheaded gangly screaming thing at the top of the slope when you're going for the third fire in the swamp. Start at bonfire, trudge through poisonous mud, kill basilisk, get poisoned, kill basilisk, get cursed, kill basilisk, etc etc until you eventually make it onto dry land and this thing just casually pulls your head off.

My flatmate bought this game on PS4 so I have this game now. I'm not used to the not-Bloodborne combat (despite never really getting too far in that game), so I'm getting a lot of shit kicked out of me already. Killed a big crystal monster I found before the first boss, which was cool.

Also, while I agree with you guys that shields are arse and boring, my flatmate can't help but "encourage" me, insisting that all my problems will be sorted if I just get a 100%-physical shield and hide behind that all day. Anything good I should look out for early on that isn't a fucking shield?

This has convinced me to dual shield instead of dual wield.

Tried that at first (you can just buy the eagle crest shield from the Handmaiden) but a significant minority of enemies can swipe it out of the way and one-shot you. I'd get one for the catacombs but I can't see a way to get through this game without hella tight dodging skills.

Pyromancy is still just as great as ever. Although my Estoc is still fucked in terms of scaling with my low-as-hell dex, especially when going through scorching lake where my newly-discovered fire buff meant little to nothing against all the other enemies.

Jokes on the rest of the game though, I braved the lava and got the grabby hand pyromancy that can stun-lock most humanoid enemies.
