Character Cove / Re: Level of physical appeal between apostles
« Last post by Aazealh on June 20, 2018, 09:40:36 AM »
Why is Chris Hemsworth more handsome than some gross dude in the subway? Why is Beyoncé more talented than some random girl who really loves to sing? Why is Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson stronger than the average guy?

Same thing for apostles. Different individuals have different characteristics. Some are prettier, some are more talented. That's how it goes.

Do you have Game of the Year Edition? DLC is great in this one. I highly recommend it, but only when you have high enough level ( 70 )

The Old Hunter's DLC is an fantastic addition to the main game, but I think it's cruel of FromSoft to allow the player to enter those areas at level 70; you should be at least around level 100 - 110, with a +9 weapon if you're to have a good shot of making it through them without your t.v ending up halfway out the window.   :mozgus:

Character Cove / Level of physical appeal between apostles

Hi, I've always wondered, has it ever been explained why particular apostles (grunbeld, zodd, ganishka, etc.) tend to have more of a humanoid/less grotesque appearance than the typical apostle? The average apostle looks more monsterous with weirdly shaped features while also looking less of a human compared to guys like grun or locus. At the same time they also tend to be weaker. Why is this?

I love that cane\whip. It was my third favorite weapon, even in the Old Hunters dlc. Second was the Chikage paired with the Blades of Mercy which was my favorite weapon in the entire game.

Yeah, the Threaded Cane/Whip started out as my "change up" weapon for special situations but those situations expanded to the point it's my main and the Saw Spear is the one I pull out when I just need to back attack or bash someone. I've upgraded and scaled the cane to the point that it does as much damage as any weapon I have but faster, with more range, and using less stamina! It's perfect. I actually WANT to fight multiple enemies at once with it. :ganishka:

I did like the cleaver move set as well though, better than the spear's anyway save for the strong thrust, and the R1 horizontal swipe has it's uses, but it's just a tad bit slow for the return in damage. I'm looking forward to trying out the Blades of Mercy when I get them, maybe they'll be what I end up pairing with the whip and the description reminds me of the dual katanas I preferred in Nioh along with a greatsword.

What do you think of the level design so far ?

Already contending for best in the Souls series. Exploring Yharnam has that same feeling as Lordran, but it's more cohesive thus far. Gorgeous too, I'd be even more impressed by the Victorian architecture and art design if I hadn't already seen it recycled in DS3; the reputation of which is taking a big hit as I continue to play Bloodborne, which is what happened to DS1 when I finally played Demon's Souls and realized it wasn't a "precursor" at all but the finished product DS1 was a generic knockoff of. =)

Ludwig's Holy Blade coupled with the pistol. Simple, but worked for me.

Heard/read a ton about this one, to the point I thought maybe I shouldn't invest in Skill because I assume that's Strength-based being a greatsword? Anyway, I usually like the simple Souls approach as well, sword and roll baby, which is why Bloodborne cutting out all the other fat to specialize in and enhance that experience is so great ("Shields are good, unless they breed passivity" =).

BTW, at first I was annoyed they switched the "heal" button (I've accidentally consumed vials more than once trying to switch weapon stance via the triangle button =), but I do appreciate having it completely separate from other items because I tended to do that in DS anyway at the exclusion of those other items. This removes that penalty and opens up item use a bit more, at least for me.

Also, I started leveling Skill and upgrading the Cane and Saw Spear to great effect; made Goscoigne much simpler and I can pretty much manage, if not melt, mobs with the whip already. Just as effective bitch smacking back big bads before they can get me in range.

This is embarassing. I've never done a podcast before and (fortheloveofmycats) I couldn't figure out how. I actually dont know what is was before coming here. Im trying though.  Is it because I'm just using my phone, do you need a lappie for that? Pretty sure android's good enough, right? Skullnet is my first ever online community ive ever joined. Please excuse my noobness.

Don't worry, you don't need to have had any prior podcast experience to listen to this one. You should be able to play it on android devices as well, it's just a simple .mp3 format, easy to download and listen to on the fly.

I've also just recently created an account and started joining discussions, but I had been visiting SK.net for a pretty long time and listened to more than half of their podcasts before that. People in here are pretty cool, enjoy your stay.

You should check out our podcast. 100+ hours of Berserk chat  :badbone:
Oooh
Gosh.

My guess is Casca is eventually going to be the straw that stirs the drink; a frontline fighter/leader, strategist, and matriarch for "the family." I mean, she was already the reason the gang was together in the first place, so this is all owed to her.

.....
Big Sis to Mama, eh.  :carcus:
Ahh and i can't wait for Isidro to experience Casca's Training from Hell 101.
(idea.aint.mine)



I do think it would be a cool moment for her to do well against him in a rematch, especially if it's the "friendly" sparring of allies. :daiba: But I doubt she could beat him handily as things stand just because he's already proven more than a match, and, though it was under bad circumstances for Casca, it's not like things are much better or she's had a chance to practice since then. Would be a great symbolic triumph to eventually show him what she can really do though. :casca:

I'm sure Guts would be a great coach/cheerleader too, "C'mon, you can beat that circus performer!" :guts:



haha its just that Casca's most recent save was before Griffith's rescue, and since Rickert's with Silat, when they meet, there'll probably going to be a misunderstanding since Silat's attack was so fresh to her.

Guts XD So cute! It's been a long while since we've seen a dorky Guts. Dorkusgatsusapien died with the golden age but ive heard rumors that its being spotted from time to time. 
...


Dorkusgatsusapien at its prime


(finally.figured.out.how.to.add.pics)

From her perspective, the Eclipse probably feels like it happened yesterday, so I doubt she's forgotten anything from her mercenary days. If she has any problems, it would be that she's currently not in the best shape from being inactive for so long, but that's a temporary issue at worst.

Agree! That body needs some grinding. I can't see her acquiring a...uh magical item tho.  Doesn't seem to fit a mercenary...they look better fighting raw.
