Dark Souls by MaximoVLorenzo Dark Souls by MaximoVLorenzo
I had to pry myself off dark souls before I really died, I'm addicted to leveling and stat allocating, 3 days in and I'm already in Londo fighting ghosts with masterful dexterity.

Interesting note: No sleep for a few days instantly turns me into a skeleton.

YO THIS IS REALLY OLD: I know levels are not as relevant as gear after beating it the first time.I'm currently doing a lvl 1 run/

What if I tell you I finished that thing?
In 100 hours?
With the Parkinson-shaking controls from PrepToDie edition?
Offline, with zero external help, not a single clue or anti-clue left by other players?

Funny thing though lvl 1 run through isn't as impossible as it sounds like. It's still face meltingly impossible but gear seem to matter more in game.


Yeah you are still gonna crap the tear ducts outta your eyes.

That's pretty much my younger bro, now it's worse with the release of the second game.

Arrows'd be the problem here
There's about two good bows in the game, I hope you were using Pharis' or the Greatbow

heres cool note of interest there is no actual recprded death orno common long term physical effects(once u go back to sleeping) caused by sleep deprevation.(although with your immune system shutting down you have a better chance staying alive in dark souls than you do the real life).
VanHelsing019 Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love/hate this game... I have died like a million times if not more :(
RAVEN-kipper Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2014
Same here I actually died about 30 times from the gargoyles. Then I realized i could  block their attacks (makes sense....kinda) and then i died 10 more times. Now I have to fight those skeletons....or the hydra.....or that really powerful knight....
VanHelsing019 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I just dodged their blows plus i had that one guy helping me, you know the one you meet on the bridge...
RAVEN-kipper Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2014
.....he can help i didn't know that either.
VanHelsing019 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah the stone he gives you allows you to summon him just before a boss battle =P

Love this game <3

Dear lord do i know your pain, i just got my ass handed to me in dark souls and decided to just relax some and clear my head while checking out some fanart on DA, and it's refreshing to know that i am not the only one having problem with this beast of a game!
Dir-En-Grey-Gabriel Featured By Owner May 23, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
This Is How I feel every time I Play LOL!
Josiahkf Featured By Owner May 11, 2013
Even a level 2 can go grab a claymore and 2 hand it or 2 hand a drake sword, if you're worried about lvling up the wrong stats
Really handy for such a low lvl to cap out a lightning claymore +5 with hornet ring and one shot people lvl 90 with riposte or backstab lol
lordscorio666 Featured By Owner May 8, 2013
I love this game so freaking much XD

But you actually don't need the grinding, just patience, the drake sword for the first 25% of the game, then miracles, mid armor, patience, lots of patience ... Then Ornstein and Smough, there is where you die, practice with them.

Then a lighting Uchigatana +5, Ornstein's Armor, and there, the rest of the game is just trial and error XD
FellitoRockero Featured By Owner May 6, 2013
It's not really about hoarding yourself on souls. It's about your skill to survive. Dark Souls and Demon Souls work that way; you'll never progress as much if you don't look at danger in the face and attack it in the back (though it's rewarding when you land a parry without problem).
EneasBlackforth Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2013
The same thing happened to me, it becomes an obsession souls and getting as many arrows lol very good drawing!
SGT-Conley Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm at day four now. =_=
I think I'll continue grinding Queelag for souls to upgrade my pyromancy to +15 after I've slept for a few days...

Beware the limits of your own power. You don't wanna end up a Demon too, right?
Herokiller12344 Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013
I know how that feels....only after one day.

Someone went hollow
Angel-Of-Solace Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2013
lmao this is pretty much sums up both soul games. Good gear is great to have but it doesnt mean s*** if you dont have the stats to use them properly. ive been playing several hours just trying to get the stats to the point i can dodge while wearing heavy armor. I hate the gargoyles, and the huge crossbow guys in anor londo. SO. FREAKING. MUCH.
wrarwimadragon Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Gear > levels.
MaximoVLorenzo Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2012  Professional General Artist
Yes i know this by now. lol I'm doing a lvl 1 run with +5 black armor.
michio2012 Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012
So friggin true. A friend told me of a good grind spot and I accidentally pulled an all-nighter.
RinnKruskov Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
If it's this addictive then I'm glad my PC refused to play this game
Although I wanted to visit some scenic view there :(
MaximoVLorenzo Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012  Professional General Artist
it is, its a bit masochistic tho!
RinnKruskov Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I agree.
My friend keep doing epic challenges.

"Dark Souls isn't so tough!"
For someone who played only Dark Souls it's a bad joke. For someone who also played Demon Souls/M&B(on realistic or higher) it's truth))

You went Hollow after only seven days in Lordran? Man, I at least lasted nine...

*Sigh* So I really aren't the only one with Dark Souls addiction. Good to know. :T
ChaosImperial Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2012  Hobbyist
Can't... stop... playing... was playing it on pc using my 360 controller (original wired version from when the 360 first hit the market). Controller died, registering as both 1st and 4th controller at the same time. My character started running uncontrollably in a circle. I was destroyed. I literally screamed with rage. Still addicted, though.
