    All Builds Gone. Should I Keep Playing?

    Post by mugenis4real on Mon Nov 26, 2012 9:31 pm

    My brother corrupted my PS3. I lost everything from every game I have ever played, including Dark Souls. All the hours spent...

    It's your choice. try making builds that you have never done, or with weapons that you have never seen used before. You can always take a break.

    Wow.

    That is just... terrible. When I got Dark Souls on PS3 it was kind of like starting over. Then again with PC. It was actually a really cool feeling starting from scratch, BUT I still had all my characters on Xbox, so it doesn't really count.

    Did you mean to quote me? I bought it on PS3 so I could play offline on one system while waiting for summons on the other, then I bought it on PC because I didn't want to wait the month or two for the DLC. Had to buy a gaming computer for the PC version too.:shock:

    Yes.

    The best part of Dark Souls is making new builds! Sucks that you lost all your old toons, I sympathize. But especially now that the BB glitch is gone, starting from scratch is the norm.


    Edit:
    Spoiler:
    Actually, the best part of Dark Souls is invading people and chameleon parrying them! But the second best part of Dark Souls is making new builds.

    Absolutely, keep going. Think of it as a fresh start.

    I had been meaning to start a new build but was too burned out. I found that co-oping with friends made it very enjoyable and motivating, to the point that I began playing a lot more often on my own for fun as opposed to signing on to do research for the wiki. Sometimes adding that social element and going back to just simple wide eyed questing makes all the difference.

    The fact that you're even asking us says something. Do you really want to stop playing? No? Then don't. Sure, you lost all games, but try to think of it like a new challenge. I know it's kind of hard and boring, but if you miss losing all that save data, why not try getting it back in as fast time as you can? Try challenging yourself, i don't know. Just trying to think of something fun to do with it.

    But like i said, the fact that you're even asking us, it does say something about the way you feel. So let me ask you something;
    Should you keep playing?

    Damn it all, I started a new character. Am I sucker for this game or is it really this good? Regardless, here's to another 10 hours leveling to 100

    Absolutely. Just think, a clean slate for 10 new toons. One of the upsides to playing on Xbox is that you can have up to 30 characters (10 on HD, 10 on MU, and 10 on Cloud). You'll be amazed how quickly a build comes together now that you know exactly what weapons and armor you want, which keeps the wasted farming to a minimum.
