Elevators? Elevators. We’re going to ride them in this episode. You’ll see.

The question is will Woolie survive?
October 26, 2014 at 8:28 pm
The question is, have they completely forgotten about Darklurker?
October 26, 2014 at 3:31 pm
The item in the flame was just a dumb Old Radiant Lifegem. The greatest reward!

Slightly disapointed in you Patrick. For someone who claims to be so methodical in his searches through areas, you seem to have missed a bit in this one. I…I don’t know what to believe in anymore. Is rotating my saves even worth it? How will my trust in my senpai be restored!?
October 26, 2014 at 6:03 pm
Much Salt, very johns.
October 26, 2014 at 4:16 pm
I have loved watching Pat in this more than anything in any playthrough.
– Dark Souls game of the everything 11/5!
– Yeah it has some issues, Woolie, but this game is amazing
– Yeah the Souls series has some problems, game is still pretty good
– Yeah we watched that Matthewmatosis video
– Man this area sucks hard
I can’t wait for you to play DS1 again with Woolie and slowly hate that too.
October 26, 2014 at 4:17 pm
Every time you’re chanting how something is fucking dumb, you finish the thing, and Woolie sighs heavily my heart grows warmer. Mmm …
October 26, 2014 at 4:36 pm
“Look how much fun we’re having [sarcastically]”
Keep this up my lil heart may just start beating again, so good.
October 26, 2014 at 4:37 pm
I would love to see them do DS and DeS LP. I hope that they bring Liam if not for entire LP at least as a guest in few episodes.
October 26, 2014 at 4:51 pm
I want Liam to ‘git gud’ at Woolie until finally, at episode 23.5, he realizes he’d rather have Pat.
October 26, 2014 at 10:24 pm
My #1 hope is for Pat to do a full LP of Dark souls with Liam as his coach, and see how long his nostalgia glasses last.
The amount of salt and butthurt in this section is not unbelievable because you guys suck. Goddamn. How did Woolie even beat the Fume Knight if you guys are complaining this much? He must’ve had like 50 tries. Jesus.
October 26, 2014 at 4:56 pm
I can’t believe how butthurt Woolie is during this. They amp up the difficulty just a little bit, make the area a bit harder to navigate, and all of a sudden everything is bullshit. You know, all those things that made DS1 better.
If he thinks this is bad I can just imagine him trying to go through this on NG+. I can’t wait for him to get to the Fume Knight. Or the Sunken King DLC for that matter.
October 28, 2014 at 9:25 pm
I’m thinking it’s because this is his first Souls game ever. And thus, he’s never experienced the beautiful agony of Dark Souls I.
Can’t wait to hear his thoughts on it once he starts playing it.
October 26, 2014 at 5:30 pm
Little hilarious about the illusionary wall bit, as there was a message earlier that said the same thing, and Pat said it was lying 😛
October 26, 2014 at 5:36 pm
Geeze, this was hard to watch
October 26, 2014 at 6:48 pm
I like Woolie a lot and this is a hard, demoralizing game, but he seriously sounds like DSP right now. “This part is hard so I’m going to blame level design instead of my own mistakes.”
October 28, 2014 at 9:23 pm
Hey hey hey…no one’s as bad as DSP.
November 15, 2014 at 12:16 pm
That’s why he said “sounds LIKE DSP”. No one can achieve THAT level of game-blaming (see “Kojima World Order”), but… Woolie’s certainly getting frustrated.
October 26, 2014 at 6:54 pm
The whining in this was almost insufferable. Jesus. Makes me wish they just left this DLC out. Not gonna look forward to the Fume Knight after I’ve seen how quick they are to blame the game now.
October 26, 2014 at 7:45 pm
As it turns out, Dark Souls ‘ thing of “Dying and KNOWING it was your fault, and that’s why it’s great” doesn’t seem to be Woolie’s thing.
Worst part of the entire game, huh?
I hope he enjoys the challenge area for the third DLC.
October 26, 2014 at 8:54 pm
Lol, thinking Brightbugs are worthless. C’mon, Pat! Those things are amazing if you’re soloing a boss!
October 26, 2014 at 10:53 pm
“This might be the worst area in the whole game.” Pat, did you play Dark Souls 2? Cuz there are far worse in the vanilla game than in the DLC man. Come on, step it up.
November 15, 2014 at 12:17 pm
But they’re not playing those parts NOW, so obviously they’re better! /s
October 26, 2014 at 10:54 pm
If only they’d bought some firebombs with Woolie’s almost infinite supply of souls.
October 27, 2014 at 4:13 pm
wow salt more o-o geeeeeeez
October 27, 2014 at 9:35 pm
I don’t get it. What is Woolie’s complaint about this area? Pat keeps talking about how everything looks so similar, which I agree with, but Woolie seems to be emphasizing how “confusing” it is, which I don’t think is inherently bad. Plus I think Iron King does this design well. If that’s your gripe, good luck having fun in Sunken King, and to a lesser extent Ivory King, or in large parts of Dark Souls.
October 28, 2014 at 9:19 pm
Yeah, I wasn’t a huge fan of Crown of the Old Iron King. The jaw-dropping, breathtaking moment when you first open the doors to the area before the first chain you cross (and the act of crossing the chain, for that matter) quickly dies off while going through the less than stellar generic hallways, in my opinion. The elevators are creepy and cool, but the bosses (especially Cool Ranch Smelter) were a little meh (Fume Knight did his job of frustrating me to no end, so kudos to that, I suppose), and gauntlet areas soon became very boring (still haven’t killed Mr. Cool Ranch to this day).
I haven’t purchase nor will I be purchasing Crown of the Sunken King (I wasn’t a fan of the setting at all, and the reward for a three crowns is disappointing), so I have no opinion on it. Crown of the Ivory King was my favourite of the three, mostly because of the (main) environment. The Loyce Souls farming and snowstorm are beyond annoying (the snowstorm more than the farming) though, which is unfortunate. I honestly can’t wait to hear Pat’s thoughts on it (I forget if he said anything on the past podcasts.)

Don’t let your immediate distaste for the setting of the Sunken King dissuade you. Give it a chance. Sunken King is arguably the best DLC, with a fantastic atmosphere and level design, probably the most interesting enemies, and 2 (out of 3) really good boss battles. Items, weapons especially, aren’t as good as what the other two DLCs give you, IMO, but there is at least one really fun weapon. And then there’s…
The whole DLC invokes the wonderment and challenge of the first game. Don’t worry about getting all three crowns, just…don’t miss out on the DLC itself, you know?

“This is true love we’re making”
October 30, 2014 at 4:36 am
Man, somebody call the waaaaambulance…
I really haven’t seen anyone call the Crown of the Old Iron King their favorite DLC. Almost everyone seems to go with either of the other two. But this content isn’t bad, guys.
First, the legless smoky knights are not hard to kill. Look how you handled the last few of them. Set them off and back down. Easy. What I think is that Woolie is beginning to feel the effects of exclusively using one of the slower weapons in the game. Everything is such a commitment, and many of the enemies in the DLCs have ridiculous poise, so you lose your staggering advantage. This is going to happen in the other two DLCs as well.
Second, the multiple pathways in the tower are just rooms to explore. It isn’t bad just because it’s big. Now I’m not trying to be mean to Woolie, but remember when he was running in the area between Things Betwixt and Majula, and he ran into that circular area with the tree in the corner? The one with only two paths? And he got turned around (HE LITERALLY JUST TURNED AROUND) like 2 or 3 times? Woolie, you’re a cool guy, but you are neither Lewis, nor Clark. The Brume Tower must seem like the labyrinth of Daedalus. But I think if you stop being negative and start applying yourself, you’ll come to appreciate the content that awaits you. ESPECIALLY the Fume Knight. He’s going to be your new best friend.
For about 20 parts.

How did you make it through the base game and only get 10 estus shards? There are 12 for 11 possible upgrades just to make sure you get them all.
