    Dark Souls II’s Forest

    Post by Rumeye on Mon Apr 29, 2013 12:07 am

    Lets just get to the point, would you want DaS 2 to have a Forest of its own? Not necessarily a forest, just an area with similar concepts...2 vs 2, an angry host with 2 phantoms trying to murder you. And the possibility of having more than 1 invading spirits at the same time, you get the idea. (Actually Anor Londo has the same concept but the Forest is infamous for being the most frequented area in the game and the number 1 place that you’ll definitely get a 1 vs 2. 2 vs 2 etc.)

    I would actually like to have something like that back in DaS 2, and i think that we need more than 1 area for this purpose but they need to make adjustment to how a Darkmoon or a similar covenant can invade. But i think that from should put some real work in that/those areas as in balance things out for it not to turn like the DaS Forest.

    I have no idea on how they should do that though, so...thoughts, ideas everybody! Discuss.

    I want it back, i love fighting gankers, so freaking fun. Though i wouldn't mind it if they placed the spawns in betters spots... Like not right in front of a freaking cliff.

    Considering lag stabs should be fixed, sure. Bring everything on.

    Don’t get too hyped, it might not have a Hornet Ring.

    If they don’t balance the poise system then it won’t matter weather they fix lag stabbing or not.

    I hope they still have prism stones and dung pies so I can do my naked prism stone and dung pie trolling.

    The forest is great! It's the Wild West of Dark Souls. I want them to add an arena type area. Think of the Battle of Stoicism (wow sometimes I forget that exists) but in game. What if there was a covenant of gladiators and to get to the area boss you had to fight through a Colosseum that would be like the forest to that "gladiator" covenant. Imagine running through an arena with two phantoms, fighting all the NPCS, and 2 invaders. That would be so awesome. Joy

    Oh yes. The Forest is my favourite area in the entire game. I hope they'll include something similar in the next game.

    We can only hope for another Forest. Without a doubt, my favorite area in the game.

    I really only ever die by gankers. When it comes to 1v1, I win like 90% or more. I think DkS2 will prove to represent my skill much better.

    The forest, which was once my bane is now one of my favorite spots in the game. I do hope they bring it, or some form of it back as the "anything goes" PvP location.

    The arena's a great idea it just need to be better executed. It needs to be placed in a significant place within the game, like if it would have been in anor londo i think it would have been more populated

    Exactly! I just want Fores + Battle of Stoicism hybrid in a very significant area of the game.

    Not having a leaderboard would be good for it too, I would imagine. It might lessen the amount of people doing whatever everyone is complaining about to get high in the ranks.

    On topic though, if I sound like a jerk I don't mean to, but a "Forest" will pop up somewhere regardless of who wants it or not.

    DKs2 can't go without.
    From should be aware of the forest's popularity, and leaving a forest-ish sort of area out of DKs2 would be a major flaw.

    Personally, I hope to see two kinds of covenant PvP areas. One, much like the forest, and one much more dangerous and treacherous for the host.

    On the note of the leaderboard, I agree that a arena should not have one. While I also believe that any covenants like Darkwraiths or Darkmoons should have more prominent leaderboards which encourage the killing in unique and savage ways even more.

    If they're going to make an arena it needs to be a labyrinth. WIth randomly spawning traps and enemies that will attack all people present.

    Just imagine. A level that is a giant maze full of stuff that will kill you or cause status ailments and there's 1-3 other people there waiting to kill you.

    I think a Colosseum fits all of this perfectly. The arena can be have death traps of all sorts, enclosed areas for dueling (or ambushes), and even open areas for melees. Then let's say the boss it at the top of the Colosseum, well then you have to fight your way out of the arena and through the stair case and the stands to get to the top.
