Yeah I was surprised, especially after what happened last time. Didn't know OT titles were serious business until that happened.

Also thanks for adding that pic!

Anyway guys, if you play souls for the exploration and weighty combat, you might find a lot to love in horizons gameplay.

Is there cool shit to discover architecturally or is it just discovering the next tower thingie to get more map markers type of stuff? Honestly know nothing about the game but thought it looked appealing graphically.

Sorry, totally off topic now haha.

So what is the best way to get a good set that isn't Red Demon or Kingo set? Should I just try to forge or is it better to farm them?

Forging, if you want very specific stuff.

But, if you're adamant about farming revenants, Itsukushima is probably your best bet, as water will kill ANY build.

I think its better to farm them. The set I wanted needed a drop from the skeleton boss. It was much faster and better to just beat the actual set boss and get multiple pieces than beat the other boss for a forge and a chance at getting a good rarity on forge.

I got Red Demon Smithing Text the second time I beat Li.

I just put my luck up as much as I could with accessories + magic. I also put a Prestige point on luck anytime I could from the start so that could have helped.

I've gotten pretty much everything I've wanted except Nue's fucking mask. AHHHH I want it so badly lol maybe I'll try again later

I like that Nioh and Nier pic. Very likely to end up with the latter next week as well, but itching to get back to Nioh tonight. On the way to the end of the initial story playthrough.

What's funny is that I've gotten that thing a ton of times just by beating on revenants and doing the final mission boss rush. That ugly bastard dropped a +5 version of it, too.

Are you running a lightning build? That 20% lightning damage boost on top of boosts from accessories and a guardian spirit would be pretty serious.

I'm using the entire Red Demon set. I like it a lot. The spear is stylish.

I guess I try both then once I figure out what I want. Kinda want the Iga set still but I don't understand the blacksmith at all. It seems pretty complex.

Oh I have no problem in getting Red Demon sets. I have sold like 50 full sets of it because every single revenant has it. So I want something that not every single other person is using.

Also it is Ii not Li.

What's the easiest way to see which weapons you've picked up are the best, even if your familiarity with another one is higher and therefore does more damage?

Also, after getting Magic up to 20 for carrying more elixirs, what's the best 'path' for levelling?

Are we talking about the title screen before you press any buttons, and then when you press a button you get

New Game
Load Game
Continue

etc?

Also, I have to thank the people that told me T+H are the best place to farm higher level divine weapons. My quest to +10 weapons has definitely gotten much easier.

Has anyone done the Twilight version of A Defiled Holy Mountain in Way of the Strong mode? Goodness, the boss there just has absurd damage output.

Generally speaking a higher level weapon of the same class will do higher base damage when familiarity becomes same. Only unless a lower level weapon has perks like mid stance attack 15%. Then you'd have to do some quick mental math to compare. You can sort your inventory to sort by level.

I feel similarly but am not the poster being quoted. I put 40-ish hours in before fizzling out(did every possible mission up through region 4). Just kind of ran out of surprises or ideas in both opposition and level layout. Bosses were fine, but a great combat system only goes so far without proper foes to utilize it.

Think I just need an extended break for now. I really loved and adored the first 15 or so hours, but the 20 after was a steady decline to eventually me just moving on entirely.

Edit: 3rd should be you can't do this in a souls game. I was trying to sum up the 1st OT.

The first picture should be "Oh it's a Souls game."
The second picture should be "Oh it's a character action game!"
The last picture should be "I've created my ultimate weapon after 100 rerolls!"

Finally beat the game, ending was great and left it clearly open for a sequel. However, the final bosses were really easy, surprisingly, and I didn't even use Sloth (never got my magic high enough even at the end). It might be because the Kusarigama is the shit and decimates everything it touches, but I'm pretty sure the bosses were also just plain easy.

Btw, are 3 regions supposed to be unlocked right away in way of the strong? Do I need to just do the main missions to unlock the other regions or do I have to do all the side missions too?

Yes to your region question. And the ending is leading into the dlc, which has already been confirmed to feature Date Masamune.

Edit: I didn't notice the second part of the question. I'm not really sure what you need to do specifically to unlock the next regions. I just did everything. People have been saying you only need a certain number completed in each region but I don't know specifically.

Will we get Keji Medea as a kabuki or normal warrior will Kanetsugu Naoe drop his famous hat
