I did not get Dark Souls 3 immediately at launch like I wanted to thanks to a fuck up on Amazon's part (I pre-ordered the game four months in advance yet my local order fulfillment center didn't get enough copies) so I wasn't playing day one but I've been playing recently and I'm absolutely loving the game so far. I just defeated the Abyss Watchers prior to making this post and am not sure if I want to progress into the Catacombs or go back and explore the area past the Crystal Sage.
I'm using a quality melee build currently (equal Str/Dex) until I find a weapon that I'd really like to use. I'm torn on using the Abyss Watcher soul right now, the Farron Greatsword seems neat but the Wolf Knight Greatsword is totally Artorias' sword. I'm leaning towards the Farron Greatsword because the weapon skill seems cool, and I don't have the Int/Faith to use the Wolf Knight.
This is a great game so far, I'm enjoying it so much more than I did Dark Souls 2. The lore is very interesting so far, and I'm wondering how a lot of things are tying in to Dark Souls. The lore of 2 hasn't seemed to be covered too much and I'm honestly okay with that. The DLC was the best part of Dark Souls 2 anyway.
Edit - Oh wait, I'm an idiot. I thought the Wolf Knight's Greatsword would require Int/Faith to wield, but it requires none at all. I was making assumptions from Dark Souls and from when they brought it back in Dark Souls 2, and simply didn't look down and see that it only requires Str/Dex lol. Ultimately went with the Farron Greatsword though.
Best? I'm not entirely sure. I have a massive soft spot for Demon's Souls but Dark Souls 3 is really good, definitely as good as Dark Souls which most people consider to be the best.I've been hearing Souls 3 is the best souls game. I really want to try it out.
Has the price dropped yet? I think that'll be worth doing when the price drops.Been playing DS3 nonstop every time I've been at my friend's recently. It's good, but his build is extremely basic. Assassin with a standard broadsword (maxed out though). Already on NG+ just by trading off with each other.
I'm debating on just buying it when I go back home, but I've seen everything. Just would like to go through with my own build, probably a theif. Dunno, it's great though for sure.
One of the easiest bosses, just varies his patterns a lot.DUDE....
I just fought High Lord Wolnir. Easy fight once I figured it out, but that boss reveal though. That was awesome.
Yeah he's pretty easy, using a greatsword so it was very easy to hit him. It was still an awesome moment when he appeared though, so I like him just for that.One of the easiest bosses, just varies his patterns a lot.
Also, bought it. I'm home now, and just finished building my character. Made a thief & gonna focus on Intelligence/Attunement since my Dex is fine atm. Be good with 2 handed weapons, and have sorcery as a plan B.
