    Oolacile Township- Home of the Dark Bead?

    Post by Jiub of Carim on Thu Jan 17, 2013 3:43 am

    9/10 people in Oolacile Township use Dark Bead, Crown of Dusk, and Crystal Tin Catalyst. Is Township the unofficial "Dark Bead" zone of Dusk Souls?

    It's usually gold tracer spammers for me. Which is why I absolutely hate going into the DLC while human. If I ever need to use a bonfire or something I'll make a mad dash from the artorias arena and warp somewhere else.

    I don't mind the DB spammers as much because of the silver pendant though

    I havent had a problem with gold tracer spammers. But DB is so ridiculous. DB, Crystal Tin Catalyst, and the Crown of Dusk... one shot most builds. I used to run with GMB attuned but its pointless because it either runs out and i get DB when they are low health, or (what happens the majority of the time) you just get DB right off the bat. Or the invisible DB glitch.

    Yes, if you roll forward, correct? Still, its not always that simple.

    You can also use a shield, don't get too close to them when they raise their catalyst. Fast roll should work, but you gotta practice. It's the same as when everyone was saying WoG was OP, if you give it time you'll be able to dodge/block them effectively. I usually use DB when my opponent is too offensive, they get full DB to the face. Best way to counter a mage is to stay on the defensive until they run out of spells. Some people will use the Pursuers + DB combo, so don't get close if you're rolling towards Pursuers, because DB could go through fast roll's not so good I frames. If you're mid rolling use a good shield and dodge pursuers as far away a possible.

    what about upgrading a shield to magic or enchanted? would that help its defense against dark bead?

    It goes up like around 10 more magic defense, it's not worth it over stability.

    The Crest Shield is the most useful one, although if you have low stamina Pursuers breaks your guard and still hits you.

    I'll have to try out the Crest shield I can advise everyone not to use the dark hand to block dark bead or pursuers. The stability will break your guard and leave you wide open

    I know you can negate the magic side but can anything be done for the physical damage? I rather not drain myself dodging the spammers only to leave myself open to an attack or bs.

    Yeah, I just roll into them in hopes to dodge them. I manage to dodge them today while medium rolling, the lag and I frames help a bit lol. It was in township too btw.

    -Yep. I can tank almost anything with Strong Magic Shield. Low stat investment, 3 uses, can even use it on a ele shield (Bonewheel +10 fire lol, now thats fun).
    -If you REALLY wanna get sinister use it on a darkhand....they can't even tell.

    Dusk souls x3



    It does seem that a lot more people who have access to the DLC use it much more than they do the original areas of the game. They also like to use the items they acquire from the DLC, to show how "special" they really are.



    Of course though, it means nothing. So a lot of them take the most useful(damage wise) part of the DLC and put it into their builds, Dark Bead. Thus, it also shows up much more in the Township, as well as the arena. I believe Dark Bead is quite vastly overpowered considering its range and shotgun effect.



    I, unlike many others, do not overplay the DLC areas just because I'm "special" for having bought it. I still enjoy all of Dark Souls for the great game it is.

    Just got killed by one myself, was kindling for some estus when I got invaded. So I went to fight them, and jesus.

    TCC, Crown, Rtsr, CSS, CHSM, Dark Bead, and Wrath of the Gods. It was a mad house, a mad house.

    Especially since I was fat rolling with just a crest shield.

    See, me, I like to slowly take out my targets the more skillful way. Whittle their health down from a distance, use unconventional items to my advantage, and slowly build up the bleeding or intoxication. Those guys are just cowards for running in and spamming their most damaging and ground-covering spells. lol!
