    Damage reduced by weight?

    Post by Zephryl on Fri Feb 08, 2013 9:36 am

    So I noticed while Soul Farming today, that I'm suddenly doing less damage with my BKH +5... About 200 less, with BS's, as it happens...

    The only thing I could think of that would effect it would be weight, as I was in "Heavy" instead of "Medium" range at the time (Though I only thought of this after I'd packed everything away so I couldn't test it)

    So is the damage you deal affected by your weight? Or is there something else affecting my damage output?


    Edit:

    Also, I left the Duke's Archives after being Seath'd, since I got lost, and upon returning I can't seem to get past the revolving stairway area... Will I need to re-seath myself to be able to set them the correct way? Or am I just missing something every time I check?

    Never heard of that. Are you sure your weapon's durability wasn't at risk? You were BSing the same enemies, I presume?

    No, the stairways should be in fine working order.

    Durability was fine, I'd repaired it a couple minutes beforehand. Unless Havel's Ring also increases damage, as I usually wear that as well... I can't think of anything else that was different.

    Heck, I should be doing more damage since I put a couple points into Dex, and BKH has some scaling with that.

    And yeah, identical enemies~ I guess maybe I must've accidently exited out of the menu instead of selecting the Halberd for repair? Only thing I can think of to explain it so far...

    Looks like I'm just missing something with the stairs then. Thanks!

    The bk weapons scale with str, so could you be doing 1-handed backstabs instead of 2-handed?

    What do you mean? Did you leave the archives after seath killed you the first time? If so, the bookcase next to seath's tower elevator should have moved to open up the passage.

    Scales a fair bit with STR and a little with Dex, but either way no. They're weak enemies so I never 2 handed BS before, it was always a single handed one.


    After the prison-tower bit, you get to the balconies with the Channelers, with the two revolving staircases. I somehow wound back at the start of the Archives the first time, so I left and decided to do it another time.

    So if the shortcut has to be opened manually after that point, I didn't do it, and if it opens automatically... it either didn't, or I just zoomed through that bit without checking.

    The passage between the two main halls opens automatically after you leave the prison, but I'm not quite sure what triggers it.

    Hmm... I'll have a look tomorrow then.

    It's the big bookshelf on the right hand side, in the room with the first channeler? (From the perspective of coming from the Bonfire at the start of Archive)

    Yes, on the right side of the elevator.
