    The first time you did it perfect but failed nearly every other time

    Post by ExplodingPenguin on Wed May 01, 2013 1:37 am

    I've noticed over the years there are sometimes in my Vanilla runs I can do something perfectly without actually knowing wtf I am doing. Then, when I get experience I try it again; and fail for some odd reason.

    And since Dark Souls is a game that just loves to make you fail at everything, how about we discuss this? Which part in Dark Souls, be it a Boss fight or something, you did perfectly the first time by failed dismally the next?

    My main one in Dark Souls was the fight with Manus of the Abyss. I killed him in my first go- didn't die, didn't summon puppy Sif (though he was an *** to find >:I ) didn't even know what was lurking behind that fog until he trotted out- I just kicked the crap outta that monkey and boy was it awesome.

    The next time I tried fighting him I died over and over. I was not amused. I died by him stomping me, I died by him hurling those creepy humanity things at me. I died from dying. I rage-quit a lot in that day.

    Another notable mention would be killing the titanite Demon just past Andre on my first go and finding that hide-hole in Darkroot Forest- you know, where that living tree is blocking the entrance? In all my other playthroughs I just can't find it. Found it by accident on my first but never since.

    Oh and trying to reach the underside of the Bridge where Domhnall is. WHY IS HE IN SUCH AN AWKWARD PLACE, I FALL AND DIE ALL THE TIME. But not the first time, gorramit.

    How about you guys? Done some impressive things on your first go at Dark Souls, only to try again and discover you suck at it suddenly?

    I hope that is a firefly reference!
    My best example of this would have to be bed of chaos, I suppose I was just really lucky the first time lol. Might as well be doing it far rolling and blindfolded now.

    AHA, SOMEONE GETS IT

    That stupid Bed of Chaos. It's even better if you make it through, then try to eyeball the bug in the middle, since it does a chaos storm on your butt if you wait too long. But man, one-shotting it??? That's impressive...

    You can drop down to the bottom of the bridge from the other side of the bridge from where the firebomb hollow is, right next to the axe dude. Drop down, visit dom, homeward bone, no deaths, win.

    @ penguin, the hidden forest area is just past the fog gate on the way to the butterfly. Turn right after the fog gate and kill the big tree.

    @ hachouma, after the fog gate after the last lot of axes, turn left, go up 2 sets of stairs, turn right and drop off the edge to the fire below.

    The only thing that comes to mind is the waterwheel in Blighttown, going back up.

    The first couple of times I was able to get off the moving platfrom with ease. Then, once, I died trying to get off the platform. The first of many (many) deaths. My mistake was trying to stay close to the wheel when I got off the platform, instead of close to the edge of the platform to get off. Devious.

    Nearly as bad as that stupid tree branch you have to run across. Though it is amusing to see all the blood stains on it and see the ghosts of people falling/jumping/flipping off by accident lol I've noticed a lot of bloodstains are fall deaths.

    I always fall to my death at least once in Blighttown. Though it's funny to make those giant-with-club guys fall off the ledges 'cause their AI is so stupid

    Four kings' grab attack. God damn it. My very first time, they did it a hundred+ times and I dodged them all (I was heavy weight even). Now I can only dodge it through sheer luck.

    Tried killing Gwyn without parrying with my reinforced club and ninja ring. On my first time I've dropped him to 10% health. The next 3747477373773 times haven't manage to drop him bellow 60%. Finally killed him by parrying.
