If you got the three twinkling titanite from Firelink already, the next is four from cathedrals of the deep and the pathway to it.

I tried using sunlight blade and it did four extra damage per swing lol. Then my pal told me those ghosties drop lots of humanity so in one run I farmed ten and went in with the maxed out Chaos Z and 10 humanity and it does less damage than a regular longsword

you should probably use a +15 of whatever the best phsyical weapon u can get he's super resistant to evertything else. i did a low level troll mage with the mlgs so i could shoot the honing spells from the rafters of sens fortress in invasions and it took like 20 minutes of thumping him with the moonlight great sword to finally kill him, epic

Sure as Iím always sayin, folks, no man bests me in 63 straight rounds


E: Iím human because I almost had him last time with two hits left but ran out of Estus and he did some new attack with a ring of orbs so Iíd kindled to 20. This time I did it with ten anyway lol.

Once I had armour that meant I could mess up on some of my dodges then play carefully until I could heal I could consistently get over half his HP gone so it was only a matter of time.

Lol ya I think probably as much as OS, Four Kings, and Sanctuary Guardian combined.

I think for the DLC I was exposed a lot with a weak character and instead of focussing on survivability focussed on damage output (still low). With Manus Iíd say my last 5 tries where I just had better armour and a weaker attacks I did about twice as much damage to his health and my try just before winning I had him within two hits. So IMO I had the skill just hadnít realised how much survivability would be key. As I donít think I played much differently on those last 5 tries but all of a sudden was hacking off a lot more HP each time

Goddamn I love this game

There's very little pygmy lore, but here's what you need to make the pygmy = manus connection. If you kill the four kings before you place the lord vessel you get to meet Frampt's evil twin, who says, among other things:

quote:

After the advent of fire, the ancient lords found the three souls.
But your progenitor found a fourth, unique soul.
The Dark Soul.

So, the furtive pygmy is the father of humanity. If you chat with Chester:

quote:

Oolacile has brought the Abyss upon itself.
Fooled by that toothy serpent, they upturned the grave of primeval man, and incited his ornery wrath.

And the pygmy is a totally nice guy. You just had his fuckin' pendant.

Playing the DS1 DLC with a magic character was honestly a bit miserable. It's great content but the balance is very stupid

there's lots of annoying poo poo in ds2 but the only thing I guess I'd warn about is that they added a stat that affects your movement and iframes so you have to put a bunch of levels into it at the start of the game to make the game feel tolerable. baffling design

Yeah it sounds wild. My pal started it recently playing with the double fist weapons so Iím gonna try that too. Plus focus on a specific build this time instead of trying to hit limits to try so many different things out.
