    Seignar's "Chosen Undead" Challenge

    Post by Seignar on Wed Mar 13, 2013 10:41 pm

    Let's cut the chit-chat and get straight to business. The following challenge I shall be attempting (and not recording, streaming or whatsoever; don't ask!) and I figure I should post it here so I remember my own rules and so, of course, you can attempt it yourself. It is nothing difficult to perform, although somewhat challenging.

    The Rules

    You must abide by these rules at all times. The challenge is complete once you have completed a Playthrough.

    1. You may select any Starting Class; however, it is forbidden to level up.
    2. The use of Estus, Humanity, Twin Humanity, Firekeeper's Souls, Homeward Bones and Divine Blessings is strictly forbidden. There is an exception: You may use Humanity and Twin Humanity upon resting at a bonfire or if you have 100% HP. For those that don't want to suffer through temptation, you can simply leave the Asylum without getting your Estus Flask.
    3. Summoning other online players is forbidden. NPCs are permitted.
    4. The following bonfires are forbidden to be used:

    a) Upper Undead Burg Bonfire; except if you defeat Taurus Demon and activated the Sunlight Altar Bonfire
    b) Blacksmith Andre Bonfire; except if you defeat the Belfry Gargoyles
    c) Darkroot Garden Bonfire; Basin is permitted; can be used if you defeat Sif and Moonlight Butterfly
    d) Blighttown Pit Bonfire; except if you defeat Queelag
    e) Sen's Fortress Bonfire; except if you defeat Iron Golem
    f) Within Castle Anor Londo Bonfire; except if you defeat Orstein and Smough
    g) Catacomb Bonfires (All of them); except if you defeat Pinwheel
    h) Tomb of Giants 2nd Bonfire; except if you defeat Nito
    i) Demon Ruins 2nd Bonfire (Leading to Firesage); except if you defeat Firesage
    j) Lost Izalith Bonfire; except if you defeat Bed of Chaos
    k) Duke's Archives Bonfire (after capture [Warpable Bonfire]); except if you defeat Seath

    5) The following shortcuts are forbidden to be used:

    a) Blighttown Shortcut; except if you defeat Queelag
    b) Archives Shortcut
    c) Izalith Shorcut; except if you opened it from Lost Izalith
    d) Catacombs Shortcuts (All of them); except if you defeat Pinwheel

    6) Ascended Pyromancy Flames are forbidden (You are permitted to up to +10; with exceptions)
    7) Character equipment is restricted to the following (All characters are restricted, by default, to use "Wooden Catalyst", "Talisman" and "Pyromancy Flame"):

    a) Only Pyromancers are allowed to obtain Pyromancy Flames +15
    b) Only Hunters may use "Poison Arrows", "Large Arrows", "Moonlight Arrows" and "Fire Arrows"
    c) Only Sorcerers may use all Catalysts
    d) Only Clerics may use all Talismans

    The Final Rule: You cannot parry Gwyn...


    This is my -personal- challenge, you may try it if you wish (and for the last time, I'm not recording!).

    Tomb has one bonfire near patches (down a ladder on the opposite side of that area to him) and the other a little ways before that part with three skeleton dogs.
    There is a shortcut that you can do that can basically let you skip that initial imprisoned part of the duke's. You miss out on Logan though.

    What's up with people and challenge runs? This sounds insane. I've been playing DkS almost without stopping for almost a year, and I haven't even done a SL 1 playthrough, and I don't want to ever haha!

    Good luck to you, Siegnar.

    Recently(?) found glitch. I'm forbidden to talk about it due to forum rules.

    Insane? NG+ at SL1 is insane. I was going easy with this challenge...

    I'll talk about it anyway because the glitch has no plausible way to give the player an advantage.

    let the boulder smash down the wall to reach oscar, but instead of talking to him, let yourself die. Now walk back up to the door near the first bonfire and spam "open", after like 4 tries it will open anyway.

    Good luck to you, Siegnar.

    besides pvp the only way most people (me included) really find fun in the single player is by finding unique ways to make the game even harder. its a test of skill, and overall its a huge point that this game is gear and tallent based, not SL based.

    and GL to the OP, i did a run similar to this except i used a very specific weapon set (i called it my Zorro Run). lots of fun, hope you enjoy it.
