    "Snipers Gonna Snipe"

    Post by Rynn on Sat Sep 29, 2012 11:20 am

    Picture This. Dragon Bows.







    EVERYWHERE



    Now that you have that visual, we can begin. in the forest, i no longer duel. -at all-. This doesn't mean that i run up and backstab even hosts that are 1 v 1... it just means i don't come out and formally greet you, with a hug, cup of tea, and a conversation about how jill banged why over the daily newspaper.

    In the forest, the first sign that i am there is the invasion notice. The next sign is a dragon arrow hitting you... Usually pegging about 200 damage.

    Where did that come from? Well, go search for me, really, i want you to. So the shot came from the rightside of the forest, so you start walking over there, when another arrow from the left side suddenly spills out! At some point, you -will- find me, but as soon as you do, you're prompted with me running away, and like magic i vanish behind the next large thicket of trees i enter. If you're ever unfortunate enough to get near my hiding place, you might get a backstab, followed by myself running again. If other invaders show up, i won't stop my silent siege while you take care of them. This is a battle of attrition... and the sniper always wins.


    TLDR: I love the Dragon Slayer Bow.

    i plan on making a Gough's Bow build just to mess with people and the fog ring.

    but honestly if this happened to me when i host in the forest and the guy keeps running, i would just walk through Sif's fog gate and then homeward bone out.

    Did this for about a day. Twas fun, and it got better when a buddy of mine joined in the fun. THAT host lost 2 phantoms and 20 flasks to us before he suicided.

    i actually consider this a victory.

    the dragonslayer bow honestly has really crappy damage, Goughs bow hits 680 though, so i can't wait for my opportunity to use it.

    So here is some tactics with the DSB btw...

    1: Fire, and forget. If it's your first arrow, and you've not been spotted, you're going to hit. These arrows move very fast and your opponent doesn't have time to react.

    2: When first approached by your opponent, if they are alone, arm another arrow. Fire as soon as they try to attack, you can usually interrupt the attack, harm them, and not be harmed yourself. Most players will perform a rolling attack. If they try to backstab you, consider shooting while they spin a cicle around you.

    I do this in dark londo and new londo. The fog ring+ the dark makes hiding incredibly easy.

    (the trick to spotting hosts is to look for the grass crest aura they usually have, or to spot their lighthouse like companion.)

    the trick to not being seen is to not use body buffs.
    I lack one, and i can disappear while you're chasing me if i can break lock.
