    No Grind run

    Post by IV_Mark_VI on Tue Sep 11, 2012 10:33 am

    Hey guys,

    Debating doing a no grind run, through as many NGs as possible.

    Rules are:
    Try not to cross over the same area twice. If you do, not allowed to kill anything you've already killed.
    No getting summoned for boss fights.
    Complete an area before moving on; no 'leaving things' and hten returning later with a gold serpent ring to get better drops.

    I think this would be interesting for me, and curious to see how it plays out. You'd have to map your progression out in advance, and what weapons you planned to use, and how you planned to use your Souls, as it's a limited supply.

    Being able to grind for Shards or other drops makes the game trivial to me; I want to see how many NG+ I can make it through.

    Thoughts?

    For me that would be a living HELL, as I pretty much live to grind when playing DkS, and so you can count me out on this one! :evil:

    I've actually done this before, but I sort of hit my wall with dealing damage to bosses on I believe it was, NG+++. That's my only real issue with it, is your weapons just won't hit very hard. Other than that it's pretty much just doing speed runs of each NG, I imagine when it gets to NG+5 or so you won't even need to grind anyway, since you'll have so many souls you can buy bits and pieces from vendors.

    Because the great Kim Jong Un, friend of Iron Man, demands it.

    Plus I find it fun.

    I think my weapon would hit hard; don't see why not. Just level up the appropriate stats and weapon.

    See when I did it I just didn't have any of the mats to really level things up, plus I was trying to do it low level also. So I didn't really hit hard at all. Fighting Gaping Dragon was super duper annoying. It took so long to kill him without summons.

    Ok. Well I've done a SL1 complete run through of the game, and that was fun. But I find the added time it takes to beat bosses and levels mildly annoying; I think this will make it fun and challenging for me.
