    What have you had the most fun doing in Dark Souls?

    Post by Dubscythe on Sun Sep 02, 2012 3:31 pm

    Simple question that I think could evolve into a nice discussion. I'm also genuinely curious as to what some people may say, as I could use some ideas.

    As for me, PvE has always been the most interesting and enjoyable for me; Co-op is satisfying. Invasions and PvP in general have been rather hit and miss for me, and I dare not even try to take part in the forest covenant. Gravelording is interesting sometimes but more than likely is just me standing there doing absolutely nothing for a great deal of time.

    The lore and PvE is where I've had the most fun at, although I've spent majority of my time PvPing.

    Definitely me and my two friends co-oping through all of Sens. You think have to be careful on timing alone it gets crazy fun with three people.

    1st time playthrough, figuring out how to get past and counter all the bosses and enemies the game threw at me. Sure I made my guy specialise in sorcery a bit which helped me get through the harder parts of levels but really that experience is better than any other that i've had on dark souls.

    Highlights though I have to give a shout out to the first time I went to Fight Club, one of the best moments playing, even if i had to stay up till 3am before anyone got on silly

    The thing that kept me going on dark souls was coop. I enjoyed testing out new builds in pve and pvp but cooping with people is what i love most about dark souls and what i'm best at really.

    I think my Large crossbow everything run was my favourite. Even landed me a really solid low level pvp build.

    My best experience was the first playthrough, like Serious said. But the most fun I've had is invading people. Especially when I parry them. Especially while using chameleon. happy

    I think some of my most rewarding experiences so far have been doing co-op and helping a random stranger beat a boss...most of the time I never hear from them, but every once in a while I'll get a message saying "THANK YOU" from someone who was probably excited to get past that boss for the first time. Makes a white phantom feel good about himself. big grin

    For me, it's invading. Not to duel, but to kill. Far and away THE most fun thing to do in this game. Favorite spots are Catacombs and Demon Ruins.

    My first playthru, I beat the game entirely offline so that i could enjoy the content. I was hollow for most of this time as farming was a foreign concept and i did not refer to the wiki for where to farm any way. This was extremely fun and provided a good 45+ hours of play time on one toon for one new game.

    Now 40 playthrus later, PvE is a boring chore for me that I find no fun in at all. I will help a friend if they need it but I rarely co op with randoms outside of Sens.

    I pvp 95% of the time now. It was rage inducing when I first started due to me getting constantly owned, but now I win the majority of matches and have a great time killing experienced players as well as noobs.

    When I come up against one of my senseis from the forums, or a new foe that is undeniably skilled, I usually add them and spar with them for a while.

    MugenMonkey.com is where I spend a lot of time as well lol

    I still love PvE, even after so many hours, but I might actually have more "fun" doing co-op. The most exciting moment in the game for me--even more exciting than beating O & S that first time--was the first time I saw the words, "YOU ARE BEING SUMMONED...." pop up. I'd never played an online game before DkS, and I've really taken to loving it.

    I hoped that I'd eventually enjoy PvP as much as PvE, but so far it isn't even close. There's just so little variety in the enemies. I do enjoy being invaded during playthroughs now, so I tend to stay human most of the time. That has added some excitement back into PvE.

    I LOVE COOP!

    I have multiple toons built for every level range. Killing S&O, followed by brain punching Taurus, add in a little Seath and finish it off with some four kings (so if I throw my controller, at least I did all the other easy ones first!).

    One thing I have found very exciting is when a 3 Sunbro coop group gets invaded... SO MUCH LIGHTENING!!!

    Seriously who downpreps for trolling in the forest? Chameleon vs noobs is one of the most fun things I've done in PvP.

    Kicking around dead snake men.

    Seriously tho, first playthrough beating Capra Demon and his ******* dogs! That and invading people and A: finding a douche and murdering him or B: finding a good close duel.

    I'll fight you. Used to get beaten a fair bit but not lost a single invasion in Demon Ruins so far...
    Basically it's the cookie cutter Spellwarrior PvE build. I just poke them with my Enchanted Wing spear until they run out of HP or a couple of my spells hit.
