    Dark Souls Challenges + video

    Post by bl0odyMe5s on Sat Dec 22, 2012 6:28 pm

    Hi everyone, my first post in here (sooo nervous silly)

    Let's start right away, I'm growing tired of PvE in Dark Souls but I still love the game so I finally decided to do some challenges. After beating all bosses (+dlc) on NG with the EnB class challenge restrictions, I wanted to take it even more serious, so this is my first challenge, which I am currently still working on...I'm at the 2nd bell now. Copypaste from my first video:

    Taurus Demon rules: Don't kill the crossbow guys!
    #1 You may not level.
    #2 With the exception of rings, you may only use your starting equipment. Addition: You must wear the Calamity Ring the whole time! No armor and shield allowed!
    #3 The only Blacksmiths who may Modify your equipment are Andre and Rickert.
    Normal, Raw, Divine, Occult, Magic, and Enchanted are ok.
    Fire and Lightning are NOT allowed.
    #4 You may not use any healing items. Clerics can cast heal.
    #5 You may not enter new covenants. (If you are a knight / cleric, Way of White is allowed.)
    #6 You may not upgrade your pyromancy flame.
    #7 No summons.
    #8 You must be ng+
    #9 The area belonging to the boss is also part of the challenge so these rules also apply there. (Well, just start running from your bonfire of choice!)

    The second challenge is a lot different and was originally made by a youtube user named "Valtiel".
    It's called CCC-Challenge - Crossbows-Curse-Calamity and I am currently fighting Kalameet with my SL144 on NG+++ and I am enjoying the hell out of this fight^^

    If anybody is interested:

    Credit for the CCC-Challenge goes to Valtiel. Hope you guys like it and give it a try! happy

    SL1, no-fire-or-lightning, no estus, calamity ring, ng+ playthrough?
    no offence but you seem to be overestimating your abilities there silly or anyone's abilities for that matter.

    I killed Manus ng+++ with dual crossbows/cursed/calamity today. Have to say, Artorias was much harder but here's the kill anyways in case anybody's interested (not even 4 minutes lol)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6fGE_QknKI

    However, the Calamity Class challenge will have to wait as I will do a Demon's Souls run with the following rules:

    1: No levelling. This is a must for just about any Souls challenge, due to the way levelling trivialises the whole game.
    2: No healing on boss fights. This includes passive healing bonuses such as the Regenerator's Ring
    3: No storage with Stockpile Thomas. You can only keep what you can carry with you.
    4: No duping.
    5: You can only learn spells and miracles from the basic trainers. (Freke's apprentice and Urbain's follower)
    6: No phantoms

    Optional rules:

    Force black tendency by duping Stones of Ephemeral Eyes (this bypasses the no duping rule obviously)
    Restrict yourself to starting and/or unupgraded equipment
    Restrict yourself from using spells/miracles
    No shields
    Restrict or ban rings

    I don't know yet which of the optional rules I will use, pure black is a must have though happy
    This challenge comes from Ludovician42 who also made the EnB class challenge on ng+ all kills on his youtube channel!

    Yeah...Shrine of Storms Pure Black no shield = pain in the arse^^
    Maybe that's just too much. I'm reaching my limits at Dark Souls now, Anor Londo ng+ Calamity, base lvl, no armor, no shield, no heal except bonfires.
    Just me and my battle axe+15 big grin
    Dat Demon's Souls sounds even worse XD
