    Well, in my first playthough i used to take 1 to 2 nights playing each area, now i can get to annor londo in one hour playing this game, i think when they meant 4-5 hours of new content gameplay, it was suppose to the "normal" player lol!, not the ones experienced enough to beat each lvl in the first day sad

    Well yeah when I get to the new content, I'm fat rolling with melee only. Did it with my first run through of Dark and Demon's, and it made the game super enjoyable. I'm hoping it will work here.

    The only thing I'm not happy about with the DLC is that they gave us another dragon sword weapon.

    Obby greatsword is cool and all, but I would have preferred something else (like a viable single handed dragon blunt weapon, for instance). Kinda disappointed me.

    Other than that, the content is short, granted, but it's fine.

    Yeh no real new weapons. I was hoping for some new normal weapons. Yknow, to upgrade down different paths n stuff.

    The stone axe is such a weapon. And so is the four pronged plow.

    It drops from the forest guardians. The R2 (I think) lets you do that massive pull-out explosion of dirt move that they always use when you're down.

    Kalameet was a fun fight but his drops were just one big disappointment for me.

    I thought the Stone Axe upgrades with twinkling titanite.

    I'm 99% sure about it. I might be wrong though.
    It can at least be buffed without a glitch.

    I don't have the stone axe so I don't know how it upgrades, but I've seen it being used videos and it's pretty beast. Also yeah it can be buffed.

    Twinkling titanite is used to upgrade the Stone Ax.

    Obsidian Greatsword can be buffed as well, and I'm pretty sure being buffed increases the damage of its R2 Explosion.

    It's R2 can exceed somewhere around 2k pure physical damage.

    It depends on how close to it you are though, so you'll be mostly safe if you keep your distance. And they can't spam the attack. And the GSs are slower. So it wont be that much of a problem IMO.

    I have yet to try that. Thanks for telling me though, the next person who invades me is eating a poison-enchanted field of black flames.

    First invader was a guy who ran away, cast pursuers and chameleon and came back. ): I didn't want to risk getting oneshotted so I cast pursuers and rolled around, it oneshot him instead. Next guy stunlocked and killed me before I could pull it off (I have 0 poise, forgot how crappy it is trying to use a GS with no poise rofl).

    Anyway I finally pulled it off on the third guy, and yes, it poisons.

    How the hell did you accomplish this? It's R2 is nowhere near that powerful in my experience.

    The start up is slow as hell though, they can easily roll out if you distance yourself and if you're too close they'll just stunlock.

    Personally, I'd only ever use it for oki after a backstab/riposte.

    All around I'm happy with the expansion, I had pretty much kept myself on a media-blackout about it outside of knowing it was being released, so I was going in with very little expectations.

    The quality of all of the boss fights are top-notch, although I did find that Oolacile Township felt a little easy after I finally beat Atorias. While I do wish there was a bit more meat to it - flesh out the Oolacile Dungeons or something, I have a feeling that no matter what - I'd always want more of this game.

    Considering the time it took for them to do the DLC, ontop of doing the PC port - it's a reasonable amount of content.

    I know I can always do NG+ and beyond, but I always find myself putting off finishing off the last boss in the game as I don't want it to end yet, and wish that there was more to do.

    No, those guys are actually the Oolacile people transformed because their humanity went wild. And they are nowhere something called Abyss Guards.
