on my list
September 20, 2014 at 9:16 pm
I thought it was a he, sweet jesus that thing uglier than Pat yelling at Woolie to drop his shield.
September 20, 2014 at 9:21 pm
So I just got dark souls 2 on PC, I was wondering if anyone could give me any advice for my first play through and some build ideas? Also It’d be great if anyone would like to do the play through with me as I’m sort of scared to do it alone haha
September 20, 2014 at 9:28 pm
my advice to you is not drop your shield you know what I mean?
September 20, 2014 at 9:29 pm
*pats voice* I mean not drop your shield damnit!
September 20, 2014 at 9:46 pm
Good advice, you got anymore? ^^
September 21, 2014 at 1:53 am
I doubt he need more, it was… PERFECT!
September 20, 2014 at 10:03 pm
Use a controller.
Play it slow.
Don’t be afraid to grind for souls.
Sell your fucking extra items to Gavlan.
Start as a cleric and build strength, that mace is fucking worth it.
Drop your shield.
You will die.
If all else fails and you’re hating everything then hack yourself a ton of souls and cheat up a level 800 character. Most of the game scales and, if you were hating the difficulty before, you should enjoy it after.
September 20, 2014 at 10:38 pm
Remember to save those soul vessels too. If you start as a cleric just for the mace you are going to want t respect those faith and maybe some of the attunment eventually.
Don’t be afraid to try pyromancy either warmth is a decent pyromancy.
September 21, 2014 at 1:39 am
If you start as a warrior, you begin the game with 15 strength, which is exactly enough to Wield the Morningstar. You can get a really good, really early mace without starting cleric. In majula, drop off the cliff you normally so to get the Binoculars, a Morningstar is also on the ledge. Only the warrior has the strength to hold it without putting any points in it.

I get what you’re saying, but I always recommend Cleric as a starting class. Pushing your stats into any path is very easy in DS2, but the Cleric starts with all the necessaries a new player might miss or not understand otherwise early in the game. Blunt damage and its necessity confuses some new people, and a lot of newbies miss the chime you can find.
Also you can fall back on healing. Healing is always good.
September 20, 2014 at 10:08 pm
Watch the playthrough.
Don’t be scared. There’s absolutely no reason to be scared of any Souls games. (No, I’m not being sarcastic.)
I’m not saying they’re easy, but there’s nothing to be scared about.

You’ll die some, like all of us at first, but don’t worry, it’s all about getting to know you.
Some would argue that it’s best to know each area and enemy thoroughly, but really, if you know your limitations and strengths you can subdue most situations easily enough.
Don’t be afraid to lame it out on distance, and go sword and board (or rather, mace and board). Cleric is a great beginner’s class, even though you won’t benefit from miracles–at most a heal, but even then lifegems and Estus are a better use of your time.
Hold on to any soul vessel you find, you’ll find a good deal later, but it’s good to get a feel for what build you really want after you get a nice level so you don’t go wrong with it.
If you wanna go sorcerer/archer and lame it the fuck out ranged, don’t worry, it’s also viable, but be warned that, just like Pat said, it really is a completely different game once you change over to melee.
All that said: don’t be afraid, at all. If you die you die, you’ll only lose your souls and some HP, which you can later recover. At later stages of the game Human Effigies are aplenty, and it’s common courtesy to summon a shadow to help them regain humanity, so use the small soap sign whenever you feel like you wanna go back to being human.
And also, don’t be afraid to ask for help as well, but if you keep dying on a given situation it’s simply because you’re tackling it from the same angle: think outside the box, and lure enemies out if you can’t fight a crowd well.
Wish you luck person, hope you find the game as fun as most of us do!

I would say get good, but that would be too easy. So in a more honest, not-Liam tone, I will say this – a decent build to start with would be a quality build, where you pour your souls mainly into dexterity and strength, allowing you to wield a massive array of the weapons in-game. And don’t be afraid. Dark Souls 2 may seem intimidating at times, but it’s not that bad. Dark Souls 1 is when you can start shitting your pants like a babby.
September 21, 2014 at 11:58 am
Try a strength pyromancy build if this is your absolute first time in a souls game. Pyromancy requires nothing and its a good ranged option.
September 21, 2014 at 10:06 pm
Thank you everyone for your replies ^^
October 20, 2014 at 3:18 pm
Man, people are super helpful here. Yeah, good luck and with the stuff. 😀
September 20, 2014 at 9:26 pm
Woolie is now at the point in the game where he can drop his shield, y’know what I mean?
September 20, 2014 at 9:37 pm
Butterface? I’m pretty sure the whole package is awful, Woolie.
September 20, 2014 at 9:44 pm
It took part of my last week of vacation and a well placed Fisticuffs episode but I did it! I caught up before they beat the Shrine of Amana.
That said, a few things to note, Pat:
The Demon of Song DOES have a grab move. It was one of the first things it did to me.
The Milfanito in the castle only sings when you go down the elevator after you free her. Your game was not bugged.
I was not aware that pose was rare for the Emerald Herald. I’m fairly certain I’ve seen it a couple of times.
September 20, 2014 at 9:57 pm
I’m not so sure that pose is a rare thing so much as it’s just them STILL using the same idle animations from Demon’s Souls.
September 20, 2014 at 10:04 pm
I wouldn’t be surprised if she was just a re-texture. Considering so many assets were straight ripped from DS1 into DS2.
September 20, 2014 at 10:14 pm
Guys, halp. I’m getting irrationally angry about Woolie refusing to put points into Vigor.
September 20, 2014 at 10:36 pm
It’s funny because I’ve seen the Emerald Herald swing her legs like fives times, and I haven’t eve nfinished the game yet.
September 20, 2014 at 10:51 pm
Good vid guys!
September 20, 2014 at 10:57 pm
Pat, why do you ruin fights for Woolie? Like, no offence, but you literally told him how to beat the boss. Not cool, brooooooooo.
Looking Glass Knight used to be called Mirror Knight because From B thought they could render mirrors properly.
They could not.
As far as what the Demon of Song is, my guess is that the Milfanito outside the boss fog wall IS the Demon of Song…because she disappears after interacting with her. That’s all I’ve got
Also, who the fuck is The Embedded? Like, he’s basically some sex-crazed motherfucker, based on the Key[blade’s] description. AH-mazing character backstory creation, From B! AH-mazing…
That animation isn’t rare, Pat. You do realize they’re randomized, right? RIGHT!? O.o?
Woolie, what the fuck were you expecting from From B’s weapon design team (so, like, 1 guy)? They just make unique-LOOKING weapons, with borrowed movesets.
Y’know Pat, that theory for the Milfanito could be true, considering when you open the door at the Rise of the Dead bonfire, there’s three (clearly-female) Undead without legs that attack you.
The “cool as shit” “guy” you fought was an Aldia Warlock. They’re actually female (at least, I think they are. I’d have to fact-check to be sure), and their headpiece is stupid-difficult to farm, considering they don’t respawn upon death. Their shield’s decently-hard to get as well. Dark Spirit – Merciless Roenna also wears (and drops) their gear.
The singing when descending on the elevator isn’t a bug, it’s only supposed to occur when you free the caged Milfanito.
“The Great Dead One” doesn’t sound like what you would call The Rotten. The Rotten’s only ever existed in Black Gulch, and his existence is due to the amount of corpses dumped down The Pit (I’m assuming the “bottomless” hole leads down to The Rotten’s boss room). It could be a connection to Nito (although I still refuse to believe Dark II’s connected to Dark I past the callback bullshit they put in).
(I apologize for these comments. They feel really disorganized, even if they are descending chronologically based on what you guys talk about throughout the video. I also apologize for their length)
September 20, 2014 at 11:22 pm
“although I still refuse to believe Dark II’s connected to Dark I past the callback bullshit they put in”
What? What more did you want them to do, they couldn’t have made it more obvious that it’s the same place unless they actually started calling it lordran.
September 21, 2014 at 1:44 am
Could have put a big Solair statue and Praise the Suns everywhe-
Oh wait …
September 20, 2014 at 11:20 pm
Eating pizza and wathing SBF Pat and Woolie on a Saturday night= Time well spent
September 20, 2014 at 11:33 pm
No, actually, the Milfanito is supposed to sing once you free her, not before. So it’s not a bug. I assume it was more of a “thank you” from the Milfanito that you saved.
September 21, 2014 at 1:45 am
I always took it as she was magically imprisoned, but after she’s free she can return to her purpose.
September 21, 2014 at 12:32 am
Yeah, I love the Demon of Song’s character design. Best non-human boss in terms of visual coolness, IMO.
September 21, 2014 at 12:35 am
It’s not a bug, you nerds. She’s singing specifically because you freed her!
September 21, 2014 at 12:40 am
Pat, you can use the Ring of the Dead to open that one special door in Shrine of Amana without having to use a human effigy.
September 21, 2014 at 1:51 am
Something about Pat being catty, and passive aggressive regarding the “Shut up Pat!” comments is hilarious.
September 21, 2014 at 2:18 am
I’d recommend using that red iron twinblade.
September 21, 2014 at 3:02 am
“We are Patfinito, we know nothing of the outside world.”
September 21, 2014 at 10:30 am
Not to join the crowds of butthurt guys who always go on about how wrong Pat is on DS2, but the Sinner’s Rise altar can actually be used if you are Hollow and just don’t have any effigies in your inventory. You don’t have to use “every effigy in the game” first.
September 21, 2014 at 12:43 pm
Oh shit I didn’t know that. For real?
That basically renders effigies useless then, besides their use for the Pilgrims of Dark–and even then you should only be using ~5 at most.
September 21, 2014 at 1:56 pm
Yeah, Shut up Patt!
Nah, I love you, you fucking ginger fuck.
September 21, 2014 at 6:23 pm
“After this, could you imagine just dying here?”
Yeah, and I lost 80,000 souls while doing it.
September 21, 2014 at 8:39 pm
This is one of my favorite LP yet. Second only to downpour and resident Evil 2.
September 25, 2014 at 11:41 am
Very creative looking boss
