Over a month away from the game, a new weapon to learn, and some of the really tough optional areas ahead. Can’t be that bad, can it?

I love this LP, plz keep going for the end of time
November 11, 2014 at 3:27 pm
Please don’t do the challenge areas. They are the most boring shit, with the most uninspired bosses in the whole game. Also, they were balanced for groups of players and not for solo. So Woolie is likely to die an annoying amount.
If you must do them, please just go to audio in post with a wonderful death montage.

I agree. This might be the least frustrating way to do it for everyone.
November 11, 2014 at 5:08 pm
Or if you must do it just announce it so that people can help.
That area sucks so much dicks.
November 11, 2014 at 5:36 pm
This is actually a really good idea. I would love. LOVE. For the guys to do all the challenge areas after this LP is done in livestream.
That’s right. Guys? Save all the challenge areas until the end. Then stream them live on your Twitch channel. Post your soul level in advance, and make it a community thing. That would be the peak of hype. PEAK.
I would actually really like an audio in post thing period, since it adds that reflective podcast lens to the experience.

I’ll be very disappointed if they do all the optional challenge areas but not the Darklurker boss fight.

I actually really like Frigid Outskirts. The concept of that place is just too good. It’s the first time on a long while I actually felt legitimately oppressed in a video game.

Alonne in the Dark
November 11, 2014 at 4:46 pm
fun fact, the lyrics to alonne’s boss theme are in latin. when translated, they explain his backstory, which you also get through his armor, sword, and soul. only soul theme that i know of to actually have distinguishable lyrics. here is a video with the possible lyrics.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svtVB0BvDPg

I hate the Frigid Outskirts but I really wouldn’t consider it the “Worst thing to ever be added in a souls game.” although I’m sitting here and thinking about all the things I hated but can’t manage to pick one to be the absolute worst.
November 11, 2014 at 5:44 pm
I would say that the absolute worst thing in the Souls games is that there is no explanation in-game about how covenants work.
I would say that the worst thing added by DS2 is Vendrick’s boss fight.
November 11, 2014 at 6:41 pm
After some thought and discussion my opinion would be directly tying Iframes to a stat instead of say equipment load. Fat rolling with maximum Iframes is just crazy. Do wish they did explain how covenants work…
November 12, 2014 at 12:40 am
Uh, no? How the hell is Vendrick’s boss fight the worse thing in a Souls game? Are you high?

Finally! I’ve been needing my fix man!
A few tips for the other optional areas (which you probably already did but whatever):
For the Iron Passage you can sprint through all of it by going the normal route. You really need to get a feel for it though. Knowing when to roll is key but if you master it you can avoid most of the damage and pop estus in the boss room. Oh, and don’t just walk, RUN. It’s what got you killed in a few of those attempts.
For the Cave of the Dead you can sprint all the way to the last section and take no damage. You’ll still have to fight pretty much everything in that last room, but at least you shouldn’t run out of estus like Pat was complaining about.
Lastly the Frozen Outskirts are not nearly as bad as Pat says. They’re tough and still kind of suck like all the other optional areas, but they’re not that bad. No advice here, just learn the path and try not to die too much.

Awww yeah DS2 is back!
November 11, 2014 at 8:32 pm
Fucking Finally I missed the Dark Soul LP, Woolie and Patt best combo
November 11, 2014 at 9:44 pm
Man im soo glad its back XD i like 4D but i really missed this game
November 11, 2014 at 10:09 pm
This episode seemed like it went by really fast.
I really don’t see why Woolie shouldn’t use the NPC summons on at least some of the optional boss areas. For me, I did for some, and for others I didn’t. Like here, I didn’t summon anyone in the Iron Passage, but for Alonne, I did, even though in retrospect I didn’t really need summons for his area because it isn’t that bad. So…I did that kind of backwards, but whatever.

Was hungry for more souls!!
November 12, 2014 at 8:29 am
And there is the penetrators stab attack exactly.
November 12, 2014 at 12:56 pm
That’s what some of us were yelling about. you can kill them so damn quick. don’t forget you can block fairly well with that sword if you HAVE to.
November 12, 2014 at 1:00 pm
And when you’ve got all the stats you want stacking stam doesn’t hurt. one more swing makes a HUGE difference with that weapon.
November 12, 2014 at 3:12 pm
Iron Passage isn’t too bad if you can get the shortcut path down. Cave of the Dead is buttcake easy once you learn the run. You can easily get through it without taking any damage, then you just have to deal with the super annoying boss fight if you’re on your own.
Fuck Frigid Outskirts. One of the most frustrating experiences I’ve had in a Souls game. I was planning on doing all the optional areas of the DLC, but I just said fuck it when I got to that area. The double boss fight at the end is bullshit, and it’s not worth what you get out of it.

This Version of Smelter Demon does magic damage instead of fire damage also his horns are tilted up instead of down. The Executioners chariot also has a special win condition if you do damage to the executioner enough without doing the gate closing thing the chariot will fail to make the gap in the circuit and then you can just kill the horse as it is hanging on for dear life.

Just gonna get my popcorn out and ready up.
November 13, 2014 at 3:06 pm
This Smelter Demon is not exactly the same. In fact, he’s a good example of how to take a boss and re-use it in a way that’s still interesting. Aside from doing magic damage instead of fire, it has different timings for its various attacks. So the better you know the original Smelter Demon, the harder a time you’ll have with this one.
