    Getting all Achievements/Trophies is frustrating

    Post by Kyubi-Nick on Wed Feb 08, 2012 2:10 am

    Or, rather, two (or three) of them; the All Pyromancies, All Miracles, and all 'rare weapons' ones. I don't like the Miricales one because you have to join (and rank up in) a good half of the covenants to get them all, and pyromancies because of the same with the Chaos Servents. I don't want to lose my Red Eye Orb for all my invading fun! sad

    Also, on the 'rare weapons' one, what exactly are they? Does that mean I have to make every single boss-soul weapon, or just find all the special weapons like the Dragon weapons and all that whatnot?

    There is a list of all Rare Weapons needed here - Rare Weapons and really the Knight Honor is the only annoying one since I don't have the attention span to farm Channlers in Dukes Archives, killed around 50 so far with nothing to show for it

    I agree with the Miracle and Weapon ones, but I didn't find the Pyro achievement to be all that aggravating.

    the plat this time is really easy compared to demon's souls, i got the plat without even trying, the last three trophies i had left were the endings and the miracles because i needed gwyn's soul for sunlight spear.

    I don't bother with achievements or trophies. To me they are more of a chore. But some people really like them.

    Knights honour is the only annoying one, coming from someone who has all except that one.

    To me, yeah trophies/achievements are a chore, but just out of respect of how much I like dark souls and how great i think it is im gonna make sure to platinum it.

    Knights honor is annoying, the rest are pretty fun IMO. If I were you I'd gather some humanity by invading and give it to the chaos servant for the pyro and then find the ones you're missing. Once done go the princess big boobs for her miracles, then the DM tomb and invade as a DM for a while until you get those miracles. Once done w/ that, make all the weapons you can now, change back to a DW, then move onto NG+, get either the miracle or the sword made from Gwyn's soul. I'd go w/ the miracle so you don't have to kill the dragon in NG++ and then only have the knights honor trophy. Then it's just getting the rest of the weapons you need. Have fun!

    To me, the biggest annoyance about the rare weapons was just the fact that I had to keep a checklist. I wasn't even going to bother, until I discovered that a mage I'd gone through 1.5 plays with had about 85% of them anyway, so I figured I'd push on for the rest. Didn't really care about the achievement, but at least they provide some kind of goal after you've done multiple plays. And it forces you to get to NG++, which keeps upping the challenge.

    Ah, that's just great. That's what I get for making two Dragon Bone Fists to go boxing with.

    Oh well, I guess I'll just have to start doing other covenants for miracles on my NG++.
