it seems strange that they have not fixed that yet, all they need to likely due is to drop the render distance i rather a shorter render distance than bad FPS

All I've ever got on 360 is a slight slowdown in blighttown, not enough to interfere with battle and everywhere else seems fine.

I am so into this game I'm already there in my second playthrough, love having advanced knowledge this time round, makes forging and pyromancy such a bigger part of my game now that I know what I'm doing.

pyromancy what that about?
Pyromancy is literally a game changer, whilst magic scales with your intelligence stat and miracles with faith, pyromancy is increased by upgrading your pyromancy flame with souls just like a weapon.
This means that pyromancy can be done at the highest level by anyone no matter what type of character you're building, once I got the flame I started soul farming off and on to get it higher and I found myself burning things to death with the lowest grade of pyromancy spell.

Then Farmed alot and upgraded the bejesus out of it, became next Dormammu. Basically burned everything in the last quarter of the game, it's godly.
I dunno if they intended that pyro doesn't scale with intelligence... I mean, I do realize that the A scaling on the pyro flame for INT only has an effect on the off-hand R2 attack (or something) but it does seem kind of bizarre that they would even put the scaling in the first place...
There are a few things that really confused / annoyed me in this game.
1. Got a message 'Weapon At Risk'. Just didn't know what weapon it referred to, but after some digging around, I found out it was 'Spider Shield' by accident. The message is totally confusing, and I don't know what exactly it means.
2. When doing this online, I see a message pop-up which occupies almost all of the screen. 'Player xxxxxx has left the game'. Why did the developer make such a large message, and it is very annoying during boss battles. Cannot see properly.
3. What does the symbols with 'red arrow pointing down', and 'green arrow pointing up' means? They appear below the health / stamina bars.

i believe the arrows up are buffs and arrows down debuffs.
i just got my limited edition.. it says i theres a digital game guide, i used that code in the game case to download, but its only a mini guide?????

also why did US get a metal tin and we didn't :(
For a game that I never had any intentions of ever playing I must say Dark Souls really surprised me.

After you get over hump of learning how to play and what style of play works for you its a really amazingly fun experience. I've been playing as a halberd wielding mage and I'm almost finished only 2 boss fights left in the game.

was any one else not interested in playing this found that they loved it after giving it a go?

Is there something wrong with my game or does the Strong Magic Sheild spell make you literally invincible for about 20 seconds?...
The funniest thing happened while attempting the Titanite Demon fight. I lost the first time, but when I went back to retry, the demon disappeared for good.
I wouldn't mind as much, but I lost my humanity, along with 3k or souls. :'@

Ok I just beat the game last night, but I still want to play more, I think I'll use a guide to get all the good armr and stuff on my second playthrough.
I wish the game was longer though, felt shorter than Demon's souls from what I can remember.
maybe you found it easier because of your demon's souls know how? less grinding?
Yeah, I was thinking that there were several places that I got stuck on Demon's souls for days, it was just so frustrating that I had to turn it off.
That only happened once in dark souls, which is probably why it felt shorter.


On another topic, I thought 'dark spirits of vengeance' only invaded if you have sinned, but one invaded my world today and I had no sins...
It seems there's far more PVP and far less CO-OP in NG+
finally finished DS yesterday. God dam crystal soul-mass is so overpowered killed the last boss in 5 hits with it. then I was at level 90 when I did it.
Managed to get the Wolf Ring. It provides 40 points of poise. Just don't know what that means. I equipped it to see what happens, and I only see that I am covered with a blue sparkly light - no extra stuff that I can tell - so I unequipped it.


Poise = ability to take damage without staggering.
man i cant find this game anywhere
it good to see it popular but i want it XD
got back into playing this today
i:
-beat the taurus demon
-stole the blue ring from the black knight
-killed the metal boar
-ran past a knight and took a shield off a body he was guarding, preceded to get chased around the level by said knight
-met a blacksmith
-ran past the headless lighting shooting guy in the room under the blacksmith
-got to the darkroot garden/basin
-had a run in with walking crystals
-ended up getting killed by a giant knight




the blue ring has saved me so many times
I still haven't finished this game yet. [Facepalm]
I just got the last achievement today....... I'm still gonna start a new game and play again lol.

oh nice effort!
Did you have to grind much to get enough materials for the upgrade achievements?
I hear on forums a lot of people are abusing that infinite xp and humanity trick, whats the fun in that?
is there any way to upgrade the pyro spells?

my fireballs are going like 10 metres max
