I couldn't quite get into the Kos Parasite weapon myself, but it's not a bad idea to stat up for it; Arcane builds get stupidly overpowered with all those beautiful hunters tools you can now use that were just gathering dust in your inventory before.

Thanks, but you know, I didn't know what you meant by the Deep Assholes in the Well until I remembered the two Sharkboys. That them? I never actually fought them because I snuck around the room, didn't find anything, the one on the ceiling never dropped, so just left lol. I think I'll go back and kill them for good measure. Along with Willem and all those other NPCs that might drop something unique for me. :zodd:

Yup, those are the guys I was talking about. Those two are hands-down the most hated non-boss enemies in the game, with many citing them as being tougher than most bosses. But there's a very good reason why players go through the pain of hunting them down. They drop a really kickass weapon.

Good call on killing Willem. The senile bastard deserves it, considering this whole mess is his fault! :mozgus:

I did finally put on my Tomb Prospector gear, which is damn snazzy, and descend! Very cool idea, it's like they gave you Diablo Souls on top of the base game. But yeah, despite the thrill of new enemies and even bosses, it's already kind of repetitive and I've only done the first couple and a Root but have been using different weapons and minimal healing to keep it interesting (Moonlight Sword beams have actually been useful). I do die occasionally out of carelessness though! Hopefully it'll get more compelling once the scenery changes or I have to take things a bit more seriously. It's pretty awesome that it's like it's own game though, but I'm not into it yet and may just be a bit fatigued (I'd played 250 hours of DS3 before this, and by now am well into over 800 hours of SoulsBorne and derivatives). Maybe I'll just make sure I have everything I need/want from this run and finally go see Gehrman and then take a break, since you say the Chalice's are unaffected by NG+ and I can just resume them exactly as I have them next game? Anything I should watch out for though, like supplies or ritual materials I should buy now that I won't have access to at the beginning of the next cycle? The idea of casually jumping into and doing Chalice Dungeons at my leisure has appeal. Man, it's a shame this is a PS4 exclusive; this should be a PC game.

All items you unlocked from the shops on NG will be available right from the beginning of NG+, so don't worry about losing anything once you complete the game. The only thing I would recommend to make sure you do before starting NG+ is get the two Red Jellies from the Lecture Building if you haven't gotten them already. You need 4 of those total to reach the deepest layers of the Chalice dungeons, and frankly, just grabbing the ones from the Lecture Building on two NG cycles is the most painless way to acquire them all.

Let's continue our discussion in this thread. Here's a Story breakdown by Vaatividya.

Good to see a dedicated thread, also good starter post, but I feel like you should've included both the story and gameplay breakdown from Vaati, for those of us more on the technical side.

That was very well written, man... it really made me visualize your fight.

The Orphan is a tough beast for sure. Oddly, I always struggled more with Ludwig until I started using the Jigsaw. That weapon is totally op.

Thank you, and I struggled more with Ludwig too, or at least died more in the process, but it's all a process, and circumstantial; Ludwig is a huge leap in difficulty from anything before him, if the Kos Orphan came before him it might be the other way around, or Kid Kos might seem impossible. I know I was far better prepared for that fight after getting those reps against Ludwig and Maria and therefore having some idea what I was in for.

I tried doing an Arcane build with the Kos Parasite, but I gotta admit that I never really got accustomed to that sluggish moveset.

Yeah, maybe it's too gimmicky to be viably fun. It's mostly the fun of the idea of ascending and becoming a Kin Hunter of Kin. =)

Congrats on beating Ye Olde Huntyrs in any case. The game is pretty much over now; Gehrman is nothing compared to the likes of malformed centaur, the not-so-beautiful baby boy, and those two Deep Assholes in the well.

I finally managed to kill Queen Yharnam and get Platinum about two month ago... clearing all these boring dungeons wasn't a lot of fun though (except for a few interesting new bosses).
I suppose the biggest challenge you'll face now is not dying of boredom in the Chalice Dungeons, considering you'll be breezing through the first few with your super-inflated levels.

I'm late for Vinland Saga, Lone Wolf, and Blade of the Immortal, so:
Shigurui.

Shigurui is also a good one. Very decent anime adaptation as well.

Also, just a warning for fellow viewers: The video gets kind of spoilery at the end. Tread carefully.

Thank you for making a dedicated thread, ryO!

Is the Japanese title really “We Will Endure?” I wish they had used that for our version. That’s way more badass, in my opinion.

Also, just a warning for fellow viewers: The video gets kind of spoilery at the end. Tread carefully.

Claymore is a pretty good medieval dark fantasy story. The design elements orbit more towards the Witcher, but it has some that will remind you of Berserk if you decide to give it a go. I recommend the manga, because the anime has a pretty bad ending and is shorter.

If you're gonna read Kozure Ookami (Lone Wolf & Cub) and/or Vagabond and end up liking the period drama genre with badass samurai, I highly recommend Hiroaki Samura's Blade of the Immortal. It's probably my favourite manga from this genre.

The two are both finished stories, and quite lengthy, especially Blade of the Immortal, if you're looking for a complete experience.

Farnese = far-neh-zeh. Not far-niece, fair-ness, far-naise or whatever other pronunciations fans have insisted on. So the dub is right, though Serpico's VA stresses the syllables in an way that sounds whiny.

Okay, that's what I figured. It sounded right, but Serpy's VA stresses it so hard, it sounds like far-nay-zay. Which is kinda right, just....awkward
