The first part with the staircase of doom?
Just run run run and don't look back.
I just got past it...
place where gigantic beings shoot lasers right before chapel checkpoint. There's a hidden bell ringer in an obscure location that I found and kill so I stopped getting swarmed by enemies since they don't spawn if she's dead.

just thinking out loud here

but I'm kind of surprised and not so much, that enemies and bosses don't have the regain system

would be terribly challenging, could've made it for a greatly challenging nightmare mode or something

What the fuck is that Hunter in Father Gascoigne's location.

His Bloodtinge stat must be at 1000000000000000000000000000000000000 for that one gun bullet to cause such a ridiculous damage.

What a pain in the arse. What'd you get for beating him?
Hey man some guys are just a better shot

It's worth it even if you don't deem it effective during combat. I use the Chikage to boost style points. For instance, the Chikage is best for achieving the SSStylish class during the battle with a Chalice boss.

Okay seriously though - if the Chikage's movesets are useful to you, then it's worth it.
After a post like this, how could I not buy it and test it out myself. Which is what I should've done in the first place. Wake up call, thanks.

Finally got the C
rowfeather
armor. I've wanted this set since I first saw it in Bloodborne. And then I went on a media blackout. Feels so good.
I know right? It's my favorite set in the entire game and with the way they've modeled clothing/fur physics it looks absolutely marvelous.

EDIT: I don't care what anyone says, Bloodborne is an incredible looking game. It is such a technical leap over it's predecessors which ironically I didn't even think DS1 looked that bad
On PC with based Durante Fix. :p

Is there any reason to go Ludwig's Rifle over Blunderbuss if all you use your firearm for is to parry/stun?

Yeesh, It's a good job I went back to the
church
in the C
athedral
W
ard
.
I'd told the guy in Forbidden Woods about it, I thought he was a bit dodgy when I found him, but I had a load of blood echoes on me so didn't exactly want to attack him. When I'd gone back to the church after I'd killed the boss, one of the NPCs was dead. Fortunately it was only the lady who barely said anything, and if anything hated me. Hate to think what would have happened if I'd not have come back when I did!

Would anyone be willing to come help me get past VA? Having a really difficult time.
Hey buddy, what level are you? People can only join your game within a certain level range, I'm sure my character is way too high otherwise I'd hop in.

If you just set your region to Worldwide and don't enter a password you should get someone to join your game with the Beckoning bell eventually. I never had any luck using the BB-Gaf password when trying to help people co-op earlier on, and this thread moves so fast it's kinda hard to "LFG."

Hey man some guys are just a better shot

I mean, I understand if the huge damage is caused by his trick weapon, but for even the gun to cause such a ridiculous damage, that is just bullshit. Even Gascoigne and Djura doesn't have such a huge spike of damage on their offhand gun.

Ridiculousness.

Anyway, want to ask you guys for some advice: I am at 20/21/20/10/9/8 for Vitality/Endurance/Strength/Skill/Bloodtinge/Arcane. Do you folks think I should start focusing on Skill or should I invest still in Vitality/Endurance/Strength? 95% of the time so far I use an Axe with occasional Kirkhammer, but I heard some good stuff about Ludwig's Holy Blade...?

Need to beat BsB first though... spent a couple hours last night farming the Giant dudes to upgrade my Flamethrower....

Finally beat
Rom
earlier. Somebody in this thread earlier mentioned that you should quickly move left/right/left/right as youre sprinting to avoid the ice missiles and this worked a good 80% of the time for me. Thank you to that guy.

Finally got a chance to help some hunters out using the bell. I stood out side
The Shadows of Yarnham boss for a while and took them down 4 out of 6 times, both times the host died on me a little too quickly. It was a lot of fun though, bringing more than one person into that fight really simplifies the fight though

Super frustrating session tonight.... And found a neat hidden area but can't survive it.

...

Oh well, I'll get through it.
Oh gosh. That was terrifying. But I got through it. I'm not even sure if it was optional. But it must be. So, so weird and scary. Def saved it for the "first play through highlight reel" I'm going to make for my own amusement.

Must be something to "get frustrated enough to post about it, solve it immediately thereafter" cuz that's what happened.

Oh and my main weapon became "at risk" during this, adding extra tension. Lovely!

Now go buy one of the coolest armors in the game.
all over that!

...I just circle straffed her the whole fight as she kept throwing daggers and missing me :(
man, she gave me fits. 3 or 4 times I had her down to a sliver doing just that, circle strafing her. then when i had her down to almost nothing she'd go bonkers and 2 hits BOOM I'm dead.

this last time I was ready for it and backed off enough and finished her with a handful of shots from my repeating pistol. wasn't going to let her get close

Not sure if anyone else has mentioned or noticed this but I've had some odd co-op shenanigans going on in NG+. Finally beat Clerical beast in a pretty epic battle, that I swear played out totally differently in the 2nd half. Not sure if thats NG+ or because we injured him differently but the 2nd half of the fight was pretty crazy.

Anyway exchanged a few messages with the guy that helped and turns out he's only in NG and hasn't beaten the game yet! But he was summoned into NG+! Now I'm helping with CB and we just absolutely murdered him, I mean drained his HPs like nothing. I've done a few other co-ops there and he hasnt gone down that quick. For helping him I seemed to get about 2000 echoes which is NG like numbers.

So adding 2 plus 2, with how quick he went down and how many echoes I got and the 1st summoning issue I'm pretty sure I was summoned into NG.

Is this a known issue or anyone had anything similar? Can't imagine its intentional

I think they may patch the Twin blood stone farming spot out that's right by the
Unseen village lantern since their heads get stuck on the ceiling.

I have used a tonitrus and I am now a believer, my +6 tonitrus outclasses my +6 Ludwig holy blade using L1 by like 150 dmg, it's not even funny....
It's current nonbuffed dmg is at 240, pressing l1 jumps it to 403....

how long should I wait near a lamp for someone to show up?
It usually takes me like 2 minutes I believe. And near the lamp I mean in the region... I just slay some monsters that are in the nearest regions and then someone shows up, usually near the lamp too.

I'm really struggling with them at the moment. I'm gradually starting to improve but getting back to them every time is so tedious. Even with shortcuts. Other bosses haven't bothered me because you generally have more time to size them up, but here if I get caught it's over super quick

Did you press Triangle to switch the context-sensitive action?
triangle? That's for using vials. there was no action besides "use lever" and it didn't work.
no idea what's going on there.

also lost my hunter rune in this run because Eileen decided to don't show up at those fucking events and she went hostile in the end.

Soft cap, hard cap, what does that even mean?
Soft cap=diminishing return. After 25 points, each point give you less per stats than before. So if a weapon is scaled with B/B STR/SKL but you have 25 in STR, it is more effective to put them into SKL.
Hard cap=You are done, stop fucking putting more stats in it. END is capped at 40, rest are at 50.

Stay near it's right arm and everytime it attacks, dodge towards it's back and smack it a couple times. Once the poison cloud appears, just stay away for a while and the poison effect will go away.

Any time you need to heal, just run and get behind the altar.

Kirkhammer is pretty good agains it, as it stagers the beast rather easily.

I hope this helps :)

I just remembered- I parried an enemy so well he stopped existing. I was on a staircase against a werewolf in a chalice dungeon, and I parried him, and the knockback knocked him horizontally, but he didnt fall down the stairs vertically, so he went through the ceiling, getting stuck just chilling up there.

So yeah guys, endgame, let it be known I got so good I could parry things out of existence :3
