    When to start multiplayer?

    Post by mikeiothegreat on Sun Mar 10, 2013 4:58 pm

    Hi guys,

    I'm a level 43 warrior and still a ton to learn. my question is when to start multiplayer, don't think I can invade yet, but I've seen summon signs when human.

    I steer well clear of them as I'm not sure what the risks and rewards are. What happens if I kill the boss? What happens if/when I die?

    Also, I'm rubbish at parrying, tried it a couple of times against AI dudes and usually it goes wrong. I've read a lot that you need to parry instead of using block/RB combo. I never use strong attack as the warrior takes about many seconds to execute the move. Are there any special moves to learn that would prep me for MP (eg pvp when I have the prerequisite items and at a suitable level?)

    Thanks!

    Jump on in to co-op you can learn alot from other players, if you are not keen on having people in your world yet(it's good to try do the game mostly alone on 1st playthru's) then just drop your sign down and help others. You will learn faster I believe.

    Ps. To answer more of your questions.

    If you die in co-op helping someone you just get sent home, no lose of souls or humanity so it is risk free.

    the strong attack animation is always going to be slower, but that all depnds on the weapon not your class. being a warrior has nothing to do with how fast you attack

    as for pvp, co-op, and just regularly playig the game the only thing important about your SL is if your trying to co-op or pvp agains stomeone else that is a certain level, as there are level restrictions.

    if you want to know more about the game and what you can do to better yourself watch any playthrough video on youtube. some good videos are made by Vegeta311, EpicNameBro, Emarrel just to name a few.

    watching emarrel's NG+7 SL 1 playthrough and watching the record setting speed run video are two things that helped me alot when i was struggleing. the only bad thing about those videos is there isnt alot of commentary

    EpicNameBro and Vegeta311 on the other had usually do live or post commentary so they explain alot of things you might not know about, though their playthroughs are generally a little bit slower.

    There is not preparing or training for PvP. Ironicly most people on this forum are against training for PvP, so you couldn't train with them anyway.

    The best way to learn is to jump in and get your butt kicked repeatedly. Eventually your survival instincts will kick in. You'll figure out how to avoid most attacks and how to counter some of them. This is litterally the best way to learn.

    Lv 40 and Lv 50 are good ranges for getting summoned for co-op PVE.
    I dont know much about PVP ranges.

    What I did for preperation was make sure and know the level well and have good gear before using soapstones.

    PVP has a steeeep learning curve, lot of weird stuff involving one hit kills (backstabs/magic).
    Im not sure if its still as active, but 1 on 1 in the battle arena is a good way to get familiar with all the whack tactics people use at no risk to your souls/humanity.
    I never won many fights, but what it got me to learn was spacing, patience and not to continually hold the block button down =P

    You should start when you either become human or invade. There is no preparation for PvP since everyone experiences it different. I would suggest mental preparation, you will get killed brutally, people will bs you, troll you, ohko, do when you die etc. It is a whole different game when you PvP and you will do better to not let the lesser get to you. Though there are those who you will have fun fighting against, and keep you PvPing. If you want to try something in the game become human, never summon a phantom and wait to be invaded at various locations. Study the invaders and then yourself. When you do that you improve yourself.

    Yeah, PvP has a steep learning curve. But the only way to learn it is to get right in there and do it. If you want to do PvE, then drop your summon sign near bonfires or boss fog gates. It is a great way to get humanity and souls.

    Thanks, I will probably try some coop soon, although it requires humanity, which always seems in short supply!!

    ^ You think it's in short supply!? You must be playing pre-patch. It becomes more abundant once you patch it up.

    Also, if you don't want to use humanity co-oping, then just place your white sign somewhere. There's a co-op level guide on the wiki that's a little accurate.
