    Resource Threads to Check Out for Rookies and Vets

    Post by Tolvo on Sat Apr 07, 2012 6:29 pm



    Resource Threads to Check out for Rookies and Vets!

    I see many people starting new threads asking questions that have already been answered, posting about topics already being discussed, and even some posting topics asking for directions on which threads to check out. To deal with this, as suggested by a member whom which the name of escapes me right now, I'm compiling a list of threads and pages that members of this forum might find useful. PvP, PvE, Lore, anything relating to Covenants, you name it. If I spot it and believe it should be added, I shall. If you wish for a thread of yours to be added merely message me and direct me to it, but know I will only add threads that I believe people will benefit from checking out. If the entire thread is a bit off topic but certain pages are useful link me to those pages and I'll add them to the list. This may be a bit of a slow process, as I have to read through threads and decide, but hopefully I'll have a sizable list in no time. I've already finished the Covenant section as you can see, but as more threads pop up that are important I'll add them in, and post here to let others know it's been updated when warranted.

    General

    -Relevant threads-

    Forum Guidelines-Read this, you really should. Wondering if something belongs on the forum? Worried about getting in trouble for something? Why not read the rules? I know it should be a bit obvious, but sometimes people just assume a Forum is a Forum, the usual rules. But there are some important ones to know about, so head on in and get brushed up on what is appropriate and what isn't!

    http://soulswiki.forumsrpg.com/t7842-video-database-A great source of videos in relation to Dark Souls. The thread title pretty much says it all, check it out definitely!

Here you can post some information about yourself and let us know something about the person behind the avatar and name. As well you can read up on your fellow forum members. Even if you are a long time member it couldn't hurt to let some of the new people coming in know about the great people and characters we have waiting around each corner.

    Crystal Magic Weapon-Thread giving in depth and general information on the mechanics of the buff Crystal Magic Weapon.

    Dexterity's Impact on Casting Speed-This thread will show off just how much Dexterity impacts casting speed when dealing with sorceries. We've seen the videos, but this one takes the cake in that it actually explains the different number of frames between casting speeds.

    Gravelord Black Phantom Catalogue-I'm going to place this in both General and Covenants for its uses. First and foremost, for Gravelords this lets you know of ideal locations to Gravelord, as areas with stronger enemies will force people to enter your world to kill them. Second, this shall go into general so that players understand about Black Phantom enemies in game. This will tell them what appears where, and possibly just how dangerous they are. For Christ's sake if you see a black phantom Bonewheel just fight the Gravelord!

    Dark Souls Dictionary-Ever heard someone say DSB, or SLB, maybe CMW and MLGS backed up by a TCC CSS and CHSM? Want to find out what these jumbles of letters actually mean? Check out the Dark Souls dictionary, for all your communication needs!

    List of Drainable (Humanity) NPC's-Here is a list of NPC's that can be drained by Darkhand, as well as how much. It is still a work in progress, but very useful if you are about to go into NG+ and have any alive and want to take some humanity with you. It is also useful if you ever need some quick humanity for whatever reason, check it out!

    Is there Any Downside to Levelling up?-A thread with some useful information about the reasons for not levelling up, and levelling up. Useful for those who are unsure about going past certain ranges, or are unsure about whether to stay a low level or not.

    Why Don't I just Upgrade This Weapon?-Ever wondered if you should upgrade a powerful weapon you've found early on, or to invest in others that simply feel right in your hands? Well this thread answers those questions and a few more, especially useful for those who have a Drake Sword.

    Reputation and The Reputation Thing-Both of these threads contain useful information regarding the Reputation system, its purpose, and a few facts about it. If you are every wondering about how exactly it works and why certain people have reputations of certain types, these two threads should answer anything that comes to mind.

    Gravelord Black Phantom Catalogue-I'm going to place this in both General and Covenants for its uses. First and foremost, for Gravelords this lets you know of ideal locations to Gravelord, as areas with stronger enemies will force people to enter your world to kill them. Second, this shall go into general so that players understand about Black Phantom enemies in game. This will tell them what appears where, and possibly just how dangerous they are.

    I've made along with a few other members a new player help page that I direct people to when I can. The issue I feel is that many forum users now are not from the wiki and are not familiar with it.

    If you'd like to include the page here the url is:
    http://darksoulswiki.wikispaces.com/New+Player+Help

    Its got basic pvp and pve tips, faq's about starting a new game, links to other pages, weapon, armor and stat help, basically everything you need to not hate your first playthrough.

    Good work Tolvo, and thanks. I'd like to see more people use the page because I rarely see it brought up in the appropriate places unless I'm doing it.

    Anyways, keep this up and if you need a bit of help feel free to pm me and I'll see what I can do.

    If you know of any threads that you believe would be useful feel free to send me the links and I'll check them out, you can't imagine how many tabs I have to have opened to do this haha. I can't take all the credit also, Emergence stickied the thread and helped set up the Skeleton and make it be more about general information, originally this was just going to be about PvP. As well I can't forget Wisp, which I did for a bit, but now I remember him. This was his idea after all.

    I'll be scanning the forum until then. I suppose I should use my presence in 90% of the threads on the forum for good rather than mild entertainment.

    Added the Wiki FAQ. And don't complement me too much, you guys don't want me getting a big head, you better keep me humble and useful.

    Insult me in one post, then praise me in the next. That should keep a stable balance.

    Tolvo you have some much reputation! You're such a valued member of the forums!
    You think your so popular? Bah humbug.

    Did I get it right? I dont actually want to insult you cause your such a cool guy so I did my best.

    This should also increase traffic to the archives! Great thread Tolvo.

    Added PvP Parry Explanation.

    I'm hoping the Archives will see some life as well, I'm hoping people will check out a lot of the other sections a lot more often really.

    You have Emergence to thank for the idea though, originally this was just going to be about PvP, but it was his idea to add Lore, PvE, and Covenant sections. And then of course just PvP was Wisp's idea, I'm just the guy who copy and pastes links haha.

    Thank you Yesuurd.

    By the way, does anyone know of an PvE threads? I can't really find any of interest, I'm thinking about putting Befowler's sunbro thread in there as well, because it has some useful info on Co-Op. But all in all, that section looks a bit lonely.

    Since a lot of great threads are being compiled here, I have been going through and cleaning up the various stickies to reduce clutter. The stickies that remain are either:

    1. A thread that illuminates an overlooked mechanic like Gravelord Instructions
    2. An ongoing body of knowledge thread that is being actively added to like the Search for Lore or PvP tips
    3. Event threads used to coordinate ongoing activities, often times date sensitive like Russian Roulette

    Very comfortable with this above criteria as a determining factor of what merits a sticky. Please consider them before requesting a sticky from the mods.

    Please do not be alarmed if you see your thread missing. To alleviate these threads being forgotten, I have made this thread a Global Announcement, accessible from every section.

    Oh my, a Global. Makes sense though, this thread does involve every section of the forums, thanks again for the support and help Emergence.
