    How is it -

    Post by Isirith on Tue Dec 25, 2012 6:00 pm

    Possible a game like Assassins Creed 3's multiplayer gives explanations on EVERYTHING
    And how to be stealthy and get a serious score!
    Yet.. No-one knows how to be 'stealthy' as it were.

    Everyone's running round like a tard etc etc.

    Then a game like Dark Souls online jazz has NO EXPLANATIONS!!
    Yet the community creates a series of.. Shall we say guidelines
    & the majority of people abide by them and everyone has a blast!
    Or I think so atleast.

    I can't get my head around this..
    And playing AC3's multiplayer makes me not want to live life anymore.

    On a more Dark Souls-ish note!
    Posing as an NPC is quite the sneaky! big grin

    That´s cause it takes a certain kind of person to play Dark Souls, while every idiot can play and enjoy Assassins Creed silly (no offence towards AC, it's a great game)

    That's why I dropped AC online after few hours. It was actually fun, until everybody, literaly everybody, started running around like imbeciles, instead of the stealth approach.

    Nothing beats MGO TSNE, though. Best online stealth ever. sad

    Anyway!
    You can be VERY stealthy in Dark Souls.
    Pick gear with similar colour palette as your surroundings, pop in Ring of Fog, stand in some place with low visibility, or with obscured light and viola, you're invisible. Most people don't spam manual lock on to find you by sheer luck.

    I got invaded in Township. The guy just left me at the bonfire. I summoned two phantoms, because I had NO intention to PvP, I just wanted some help clearing Township and killing Manus, as I was on NG+ and my character had near base Vit.

    The guy just disappeared and suddenly backstabbed me when we were on the narrow stairs leading to the fist caster. I looked for him EVERYWHERE and he didn't use the elevator.
    Kudos to the guy. happy

    I've tried it as well!
    It's especially easy when you host.
    I just hide and wait for a chance to suprise my invader with a backstab. I try to one shot them, so I use Dark Silver Tracer with Hornet Ring, but it's not always enough. I don't want to resort to Str weapons...don't have a Str build to begin with lol.
    But it's still a lot of fun to just hide and frustrate your invader. big grin

    Do i want to be spoon-fed all the way throughout the entire game? Nope.

    Like laliiman said, it takes a certain kind of person AND a certain kind of attitude and mindset to enjoy a game like Dark Souls or any difficult game for that matter.

    Hehe I remember using the Ring of Fog/Ninja approach..
    I got told off for it..

    People said it was lame.
    It was good fun setting up traps and shizz though.
    And using that cliff in the Forest as an escape route..
    Bless the Forest Hunters who followed. winking
