    Things you avoid in NG+

    Post by Azran on Wed May 02, 2012 11:10 pm

    Okay, just got into NG+ myself and a topic just came to my mind. Once you manage to finish the game, once you got most of the goodies that were out in the world; is there any non-mandatory place/enemy/path you tend to avoid?

    In my case, I don't really think I'm going to face Gwyndolin another time; I hate keepaway bosses. No more Depths either (I don't know about Lower Burg, I think I owe Capra a roflstomp). Masterkey for the win!

    I avoid the Painted World, just have no real use to go there and I like Priscilla so I don't want to kill her. Gywndolin sometimes depending on how I feel.

    Every boss for every souls. Besides, NG+ makes most bosses have the same amount of souls, which is more viable to harvest than it is to not.

    Besides, you can also continuesly harvest weapons and magic guarded and held by them, such as dragon greataxe, sunlight blade, priscilla's dagger, and all sorts of goodies.

    Great Hollow/Ash Lake. I hate that place, it is even worse if you get down there before you can warp. Getting down is bad enough but having to go back up through the tree is horrible

    Any particular reason? I'm going through it since I finished my first game at LVL90 and fulfilled my pride quota when I defeated every boss/miniboss in the game; but my build finishes at LVL150... so on I went.

    Wonder if I will be able to get any jolly co-operation at that level.

    So I guess you receive the Lordvessel, go all "Cool, thanks for the Warp" and forget about the endgame bosses? silly

    I don't avoid anything, I like the challenge in NG+, plus I need the embers 'cause I always have some weapons I want to try with different paths 8)
    I just skip some of the items in Blighttown/New Londo and that's all happy

    All of the endgame bosses are jokes. Seath is easy so long as you don't need the MLGS, BoC is just a massive pain in the ***, T4K will always be the same, and Nito is cake. O&S is the final boss of the game, as far as I'm concerned.

    If you can tank you're fine.

    tanking is not as effective in the later NG+'s.

    At SL150, you'll still get lots of Co-op happening.

    For my SL120 builds i complete two playthroughs. seems to get me to that level quickly. plus you get double the amount of slabs to have a better variety of weapons that are fully upgraded. very useful if you your going to SL120 for PVP as you should have a diverse selection since you don't know who you'll come across.

    You can pretty much avoid everything except for: The Bell Gargoyles, Qualaag, Sens Fortress, Anor Londo, Dukes Archives, Bed of Chaos, Gravelord Nito, Great Greywolf Sif, The Four Kings, and everything the leads to them. You only have to worry about other areas, like the painted world, if you want the extra souls and upgrade material. I would suggest going to the depths though, only to get the Large Ember to upgrade weapons.

    Really? May I know where? big grin

    Not really concerned about most embers, just the Large and Very Large ones and maybe the Elemental ones. Which reminds me how much I hate Vamos' location in the world. -_-

    Which aaalso reminds of the fact that I did not spend the Golem soul yet. sad Can I get two if I keep one in the bottomless box?

    well i just recenltly went through NG+++ around that level. 4kings and Seath were very steady for 1. Demon Ruins was good as well. The forest and kilin are no brainers as well but I did Sif hollow as help wasn't needed. Aside from those main areas, I still do recall being summoned and being summoned. Just leave your soul down as your doing stuff. You'll be surprised. I actually summoned somone before centipede demon for the first time since my very very first encounter with him. I died immediately as I'm not used to fighting him with someone else. But still thought it was cool.
