    Yes, you just payed 14.99 for 3 hours of gameplay.
    But, there is a lot of new weapons/armors/spells in the DLC. All of which will expand the PvP. Not to mention the lore, or the arena.
    The time it takes to play through it isn't everything.

    When you beat Artorias, instead of going left towards Gough, turn right. there's all six arenas.

    Yeah, I actually had a similar reaction, I blew through it in 2 hours last night and I'm hardly "pro" (and did die a handful of times). The arena doesn't interest me either, so I'm already cooping the bosses to help others. I will say Artorias is a heck of a lot of fun to fight coop. But otherwise I think most of the value was actually in the 1.06 patch, particularly if you're not a mage character.

    Yeah but after spending a few more hours playing thru its not bad at all, the arena doesnt seem to be working yet, i spent about 30 mins trying to get a match and couldnt. Other than that, the dragon is a pain to beat, I have died about 10 times.

    Heres a tip for the arena:

    Nobody has started doing 2v2's imo

    More red rings on a trap door more ppl on that door

    1 ring per trap door makes a match

    Hosting = faster matches

    Dont be a **** and heal

    I did notice that all the arena scoreboards were blank when I was passing through, but figured it was just opening night and the gladiators would arrive pretty soon. Have rankings started showing up?

    So far I've played a good 10 hours, and have only beaten Artorias. So much coop to be had...it's awesome. I broke it down like this: $10 for new content, weapons and spells, and another $5 for access to the arena. Best bargain I've had in a long time.

    I saw all kinds of names on the Xbox Tuesday evening (DLC launched early in the morning).

    Someone posted above that hosting gives you faster matches. How does a person host? It all seemed like random matchmaking when I entered.

    Took me quite awhile to cut off Kalamete's tail. That was definitely a challenge to do solo. I'm really enjoying pvp in some of the new areas too. It's really fun in the township with all those narrow walkways and falls. Tons of opportunities to try to do long range risky lunging attacks on people who aren't paying attention. That's always fun. I've even gotten caught myself a couple times

    The point of the DLC is to clear up the Oolacile lore and to implement new features.

    you guys paid 60 dollars for a game that can be speed ran in about an hour happy

    but in all seriousness, the township has alot to explore and some secret hidden walls you need light to open, the new armor/weapons/arena, 4 new bosses, alot of new spells. very worth it imo.

    Yeah it's a lot of fun. I've been invading like crazy in the Royal Woods since it seems like everybody is taking their pvp SL 100+ to the DLC. It's alot of fun and I'm sl125, not having as much co-op luck but invading is still fun.

    I haven't played the DLC on regular NG just NG+, so I wonder how much harder it could be with lower SL.

    I was getting great coop summon rates at sl60 at Artorias. He's really fun/dangerous to fight as a team because he switches targets really fast and can sail across the area in a heartbeat. I'm also not gonna lie, one of my favorite parts of the DLC is the little things you throw on the ground that talk, i.e., "good job!" They sound drunk, and are particularly disturbing if you are using a female character hehe.

    those stones are worth $15 alone.

    I know what you mean, I was a little disappointed myself in the length of the DLC given its price - frankly, I was hoping for more, especially after such a long build-up to the release of the DLC.

    But, considering that the content itself is very good - particularly the boss fights - ultimately I think it's a worthwhile purchase.

    I second that. So funny. Especially in combination with a good hiding spot and chameleon. Not really for any tactical reason. Kinda just fun messing with people

    Well I'm quite happy because at the rate I'm going I'll be playing it for the next ten years. Artorias is my stumbling block, although I've only played the DLC in ng+. Is Arty easier to beat in new game?

    I'm sure he is, but depending on your build he can be a difficulty in any case. I pimp slapped him my first try and got the impression that he was kind of a push over. Turns out I just happened to be using a build that was designed well for that particular fight. My next attempt was with a much lighter character and he definitely slapped me right back. He has so much reach he can be a little tough to dodge and he definitely breaks right through a lighter guard.

    I actually had to call in some Viral_ reinforcements for that second fight.
