    What is the furthest you have made it in Dark Souls?

    Post by berkut on Sun Apr 15, 2012 9:16 pm

    We have a lot of regulars (and non-regulars) who post here. I was curious as to how far each of you has progressed in the game.

    The furthest I have ever made it is to two of the four lord soul bosses being defeated in ng. I have yet to beat Seath (though I have sunbro'd him) and I am close to killing all of the dragons in the Lost Izalith.

    I guess NG+++ Sens fortress? Is that what you are meaning to ask or is this solely for people who have not faced gwyn yet.

    I most commonly stop making new builds around the time I place the lord vessel. I just have this fear of going to lost izalith. so I always seem to stop there.

    NG+29
    Most people on this forum finished the games several times with multiple characters.

    Err the furthest I'm in is Gwyn on NG++. I'm trying not to just cheese my way through him with parrying. But it's so damn tempting, and he hits so damn hard, even when I have flame stoneplate ring equipped, full black iron armour +5 and Iron Flesh :/

    Yup, I meant including ng+ (to infinity) this thread is not exclusive to people who have not finished ng. I also recognize that most people have finished the game multiple times, I expect this thread to mostly be filled with people who have beaten the game happy

    I have a tendency to stop at NG+. I guess I get bored with my builds once I've completed the game with them. I have 6 different characters that are all in the burg at NG+ and am currently working on a 7th.

    I have to be well over NG+50 by now with my main guy. I judge by how many rings of FAP I have. Right now I have 38 and I've probably used up... somewhere around 20 I'd guesstimate. My current playthrough I'm using a claw for the first time (I'm using it where possible anyway), and I'm gonna try to do the next one with a whip for the first time. I can't seem to get tired of this game.

    Most of the way through NG+

    I can't normally bring myself to keep on going through NG+, so I create a new build and play NG again.

    I just abandoned my first guy right after Nito. It's not that I fear the Kiln or Gwyn, I just don't feel like prepping for NG+.

    So I started a second, more focused character, and abandoned her today when I realized I'd missed the first Kirk because I was rushing.

    I'm on my third character now, just killed Havel's Knight for his ring, and heading into the Parish again.

    The nice thing about going through the game at least once is that I know what weapons I want to meet the stats for and, more importantly, which ones I don't. I also use jolly co-op to farm souls for my purchases instead of the forest NPCs. It's slower, but way more fun.

    One of my favorite aspects of a true rpg is the fact that I get to choose what type of character to play. Having said that, I have a tendancy to reach the final boss on games, then proceed to make a new toon. Atm I am currently on my third character and trying to keep his level low just for s. And giggles.

    Edit: so to answer your question, ng on 3 toons.

    Farthest I've ever made it is NG+ to around Capra. I'm what some would consider an "altoholic" as I currently have somewhere around 15 characters and I make about one every few days now. I just really like starting fresh and then upgrading my equipment.

    NG++ New Londo, but I made a few PvP classes and haven't touched my "Questing" character in awhile.

    Maybe around NG+15 with my main character near Seath's Library. This game is just so addicting.

    NG++++ New Londo with my pure spellcaster Int build. Everything but the Four Kings has been defeated on that file, but darnit if they don't have too much gosh-darn health at that point, not to mention fighting them at a range aggros multiple kings at once as opposed to melee pretty much keeping it 1v1 most of the time :|

    NG+ with one toon. Just beat the Bed of Chaos but keep getting hammered by the Giant Skellies, so have started a new game and I am about to have a go at the Iron Golem in Sens. This time around I want to join the Darkwraiths which I missed the first time because I gave the Lord Vessel to Frampt. I've decided to go for a Faith/Dex build and see how I get on. I'm also giving the Elite Knight Armour Set a whirl, as I ignored it the last time. So far it's holding up pretty well. I also found the Lightning Spear in Sens which is awesome and I'm definitely going after the Lifehunt Scythe again.
