    Offline Play?

    Post by FallenAzraelx on Wed Apr 25, 2012 12:13 pm

    I play offline. I've never got any help from anyone on any boss, nor have I ever been invaded. Would the community rate that as a more/less difficult experience?

    Probably more difficult, you're more likely to find phantoms to co-op with than you are to get invaded, unless you enter the Forest/Kiln.

    Considering I play offline only now? Somewhat more, but realisticly it's not impossible to play. Boss fights are certainly more fun, S&O and Four Kings can give you a run for the money.

    Sweet! Thanks for the ego boost happy
    There are times that I want to play online... but I'd need to invest quite a bit to get Xbox live... I guess I lied a little bit, though. I've got help from Beatrix in the fight with the for Kings... and I've summoned Soliare over and over. Hell I even got help from that crazy *** Lutrac, once. Do they count?

    They can help immensily on the harder fights, the key to playing offline is you have to know each enemies strength and weakness, or trying to learn them, but once you have that down it goes much easier. I haven't done a NG+ on a 120 though so it should be fun, NG++ on a 340 I got some interesting feedback hahaha.

    Well they are available to everyone who wants to use them, and aren't nearly as helpful as most (not all) co-op phantoms. They're best served as a distraction.

    I wouldn't say they would count.

    Awesome! Thanks again. It's true that they can be useful, even if to only serve as a distraction. I don't know how I'd beat Smoug-en-stein if it were not for Solaire distracting one of them, wile I wail on the other.
    He never makes it through "round 2", but he serves a vital purpose in round 1.

    I did the first playthorugh offline and without any Phantom help. I didnt understand the Humanity system until the next playthrough.

    Also I didnt know you could kindle Bonfires until Four Kings and Gwyn. When I think back I wonder how I got through all that with only 5x Estus Flask +1 lol

    That's a very good question. I play offline mostly myself because I've found it's less hassle getting to a boss fight. The last thing I want is to be invaded on the way. I do summon any NPC's I can though. They've served me very well, especially Maneater Mildred and Tarkus. The only time I summoned extra help was the Ornstein & Smough fight in newgame+. He was a big help and Solaire on that occasion was dynamite.
