And here we go again.

As I've said in the past, if anyone requires help on bosses, I'll be around.

Nice OP.

That would steal E3 for me. I've put so much time into Bloodborne and it has replaced Dark Souls (for me) as the pinnacle of From Software's efforts. The evolution on tried and tested gameplay just works and is what I want from them going forward.

Can't wait what they can do with the wonderful gameplay system they established in BB. I'd hope we get all types of new combo possibilities. Like a mini DMC-lite combat engine.

Then how about Dark Souls 4. I can't deal with Souls ending.

Thanks for keeping the threads coming!

Question:

When I ring a bell to help someone, does it pair me up with someone playing the same difficulty? (Ng, ng+, ng++, etc)
If it's like Souls, then it just does it by level range regardless of NG+ and so on. I'm positive that I got a NG+ Laurence earlier lol Still easy, but he hit like a truck.

If it's the first visit to Yahragul we're talking about, you can't co-op except for the boss.
I can help you beat Paarl if you want.
Nah I just need to beat BSB because then you get captured by the bag men dudes. From there I'm gonna run to Tonitrus and pick it up. Hopefully.

Did FROM ever comment on why you can't replenish blood viles at lamps and why you have to load the hunters dream in between going anywhere else?

Holy shit I'm so rusty at this game, I got grabbed by the BSB once and I was pressing the wrong buttons. Blame DS3 lol. But we did it and that's what matters.

Also, is it me or is Bloodborne prettier and runs better than DS3 on PS4?

No idea, I have yet to play DS3. I just finished DS2 last night (fuck the DLC bosses lol) so I'm gonna be jumping in soon. Just wish it dropped to $40 and then I could justify it easier.

It certainly runs better. Prettier is subjective, I think BB probably has denser geometry but perhaps less, er, wide levels, and of course the CA kind of ruins the IQ a bit. But yeah DS3 has more frequent FPS drops in my experience, and has texture pop-in after pretty much every loading screen. Weird.

that's a shame, Bloodborne was already on the lower end of FPS drops. Nothing unplayable or anything but still disappointing to hear DS3 is worse.

The only problem is that you won't do any other chalices like random ones anymore because now you know where the good stuff is.
Thanks!

So if the host deletes the dungeon.... Or if the dungeon gets deleted from the server due to inactivity... does that mean that the glyph code wont work?

How does FROM decide which codes to delete from their servers?

Yeah, but when it's on a spreadsheet like that the host tends to leave it up. I've went through a bunch of those this month and they were all up.

Amazing that the Guidance Rally Potential +30% Rune was never found????

http://bloodborne.wiki.fextralife.com/Guidance

was it really never found???

Supposedly the official guide has stated it is in an Isz Root chalice... The official guide even has a picture of it.... a quick google search reveals that a lot of people spent a lot of time looking for it... but no one ever found it? Does that mean that it doesn't exist?

Edit. When the +10% one is the only rune in the game that can drop multiple times. So maybe that bugged out the +30% rune? Best I'm gonna come up with anyway...

Boss 6 beaten, I would make a comment on it but it could be construed as a spoiler, in short it's the one after witch.

Ok seriously what the hell is that new enemy type after that boss, it's fucking disgusting


Also do the gold pendant and tear stone have any uses? Besides blood gem?

Watching the Story Trailer linked in the OP, some lines have changed or dropped completely in the final build, like "the blood makes us human, makes us more than human, makes us human no more", weird considering this was just a month before release! And lol at showing parts of all three endings in the trailer, sneaky bastards.

The characters and clothes seem to be more detailed in Bloodborne.
CA kind of ruin it (it depends actually of your TV setting) but the fact that it's denser in BB there are more details and I prefer its darker and more focused art direction.

Ok how do I defeat rom? I assume I need to rush him
Take out the first wave of spiders(or you'll have a ton to deal with later), then attack him until his second form.

Run diagonally/in a circle to dodge the AOE he spams. Unless you want to kill all the spiders in his second form, play hit and run cause the spiders will jump on you if you stay in front of him for too long. Also, bolt paper is very effective.

I killed all the spiders, I actuallyy thought he would keep res pawning them and that's why I lost before, beat him now


Ok what's going on now, are the enemies res pawning here or something? Can I stop this it's irritating. Figured it out.


Have I passed a point of no return?

Have I missed anything?

Also how in the hell do I win that fight against 3 hunters at once?
