...now only embers remain. (Official Dark Souls 3 Thread)

For Oblivion. And some other stuff, I suppose.

Ok I'm set at the start of the High Wall.

I died already but I'm not too sad about it since it was to the Uchigatana guy and I killed him afterwards without cheesing him off the cliff. (I cheesed him with weapon arts instead.) And I killed the crystal lizard earlier.

Hyped.

Apart from some slight mishaps (firebomb suicide ftw!) we killed the first boss. The Boreal dawg.
It was great fun and I am getting better at DW no shield.

I ran along with my main (Ser Rolley - lvl 125) this morning and one-shotted Aldritch, Yhorm (with help of the epic Siegbro) and the dancer. Steamrolling into the castle now where I got killed in pvp by a dude DW'ing two axes that cause insane amounts of bleed in a ridiculous spinning motion... I want those for Wilhelmina in our run, Troy.

Sounds good. The axes that is.

I had such a good time, despite things not going as smoothly as I thought they would. All the invasions are definitely going to be an issue with regards to having enough embers. Although hopefully, the invasions will happen less often after the starting areas, before picking up again after the Pontiff, I predict.

After you left, I dropped my summon sign outside Bordt or whatever his name is. Got summoned. Then the guy runs up the stairs. No problem, he wants to kill all the knights, I thought. So killed all the knights, including red eyes, with no help from him. Then it turns out he was fighting the Dancer.. He (the host) died just after I got in the room..

I did get 1 extra ember by getting summoned properly afterwards. Then bought another from Greirat. I'll probably get myself to the first real bonfire in the settlement ready for Sunday, since the faffing about with Yoel doesn't really need 2 of us..

Right... Played Overwatch last night and went to bed in time. I'll get my stuff sorted this evening to reach the same point. First Bonfire in the settlement with Greirat and Yoel added to Firelink.

I wanted to play last night, so I made a new character. As you do.

It's a sorcerer, and to be honest, I simply can't do it. Ok I only played for an hour, perhaps 1h20m but I just could not reach the Estus Flask shard in the room with the dogs and the axe men. The big problem was the transforming guy on the roof, I simply could not kill him before he transforms, so I end up using most of my Estus, both kinds, on him. Then the knight just before that room kills me.

I think the way to play as a sorcerer is to go Dex, then switch to sorcery later.

Although, I should just run past the roof guy. I'm pretty dumb..

I think we're doing it wrong. By switching over to the other guy every time we die, we're not getting any benefit from the invasion cooldown timer.

So if we stopped doing that, I think we'd progress much better. But I understand if you're too sick of it..

Maybe some other day. Not this evening though.
That crossed my mind somewhere as well. Still is a bit annoying as long as we don't have a lot of embers.

WHAT?!?!

(that's my job!)

Daredevil S1 was aces. I should probably renew Netflix for another month and binge S2 at some point.
Stealth is an option.
