    What about..... a no HUD run?

    Post by ChizFreak on Tue Mar 13, 2012 1:07 am

    Just saying, I think it would be fun and a bit more challenging, what do you think?

    I would only equip Estus in my "fast inventory" (square). Otherwise I would use items from the menu.

    I mean really, how hard could it be? I think that at least the first playthrough would be easy.

    Well. thoughts?

    Only difficulties are the lock-on doesn't show, so you need to be really careful and know whether you're locked on or not. And the stamina bar doesn't show, so you need to watch out for that too. So those things take a bit of getting used to.

    Otherwise, just keep your inventory in order and it's no problem.

    Edit: oh, also, obviously, you don't know how much damage you've taken! You can either estimate how much damage the hit was and decide to flask or not, or you can check your stats screen to know for sure how much health you have. That may go against the point of a no-hud playthrough though!

    You could depend on the Blue Tearstone ring to give you a visual clue you are near death and need to heal.

    You would have to be a real masochist to put yourself through an entire NG with no HUD. Have fun.
