    Rage Souls [Done] Still Stupid.

    Post by Buggy Virus on Thu Jul 05, 2012 7:29 pm

    So before I start this let me clarify one thing: first of all, I know this is a dumb thread, but I was really bored. Second of all, dark souls is probably my favorite game of all time. And although I may say that there are a few mistakes in the game or it feel unfinished, or I feel something was just a bad development decision doesn't mean I dislike Dark Souls. So don't rage at me if I want it to be harder.

    With that said: After a few playthroughs on Dark Souls I don't find nearly as much of a challenge. So I started considering ways that would have made it more difficult that didn't inherently alter the game. As such I considering these as interesting additions to the game for once it got into NG+ or NG++, because NG+ may seem difficult if your main strategy is tanking. But if you are used to dodging and parrying then NG+ doesn't add much more of a challenge. So I considered that they should have actively added more enemies or altered HP or damage in a meaningful way.

    Basically, I wanted to think of ways to make Dark Souls make me rage again.

    So this is a stage by stage break down of how I think the areas should have been altered. So they would be harder and stuff. . . Y'KNOW!

    NOTES:
    When I say Dark I mean ToTG dark.
    I would consider removing backstabs for many enemies as well, like barbarians and silver knights.
    I use strange names for many of the enemies, because I forgot the real names, but whatever you know what I mean. Sometimes I change the name I use for specific enemies too, but whatever.
    With all the dark areas I suggest I would also think it cool with sunlight maggot was nerfed, cast light castings had a much shorter duration, and skull lanterns actively used durability.
    And I suppose it would also be interesting if you didn’t start NG+ with all your items and rings.
    And lastly, I know this is a dumb thread, I just have too much spare time (no I don’t, I’m procrastinating), maybe I’ll get to try out something like this when PC comes out and modding becomes viable.

    NG+++: Add four toxic rats and two more rats.

    Random Hallways that I won't go through one at a time
    I don't know the random hallways in the depths well enough to gauge what should be where, so I would probably just double the rats and add toxic things, because I double all the rats.

    Channeler
    NG++: Make the channeler respawn. Add two normal rats.

    NG+++: Double the rats.

    Basilisk drop down
    Basilisks hop around so much that I'm not really familiar with where they spawn or where I would put more. Most likely doubling the basilisk and adding sludges would make it difficult enough.

    Kirk Fight
    I dunno, make him immune to backstabs, or just a better player.

    Final group of rats
    NG++: Add two more large rats.
    NG+++: Add five rats.

    Gaping Dragon Boss Fight
    This isn't really possible to make any harder. Slowest boss in the game with all attacks that make it immobile and easily dodged. With the channeler respawning it would be likely he would be there during the boss fight. Still not really a challenge. Adding more enemies to the room really wouldn't fit the boss fight. I simply am lost on this.

    Blighttown
    Honestly, I don't know blighttown very well, I doubt anyone does. It's one of the more complicated areas, and one hardly anyone sticks around in, it's abysmal. This probably won't be as in depth or well done.

    Make the entire area dark where it isn’t lit.
    Make Toxic Dart Blowers Respawn, and make their toxin even more deadly, with base damage in hits.

    Now I’ll do my best from there.

    First Walkway from depths
    NG++: Add a toxic dart blower at the end of the platform, with a line of sight down the entire walkway. Add two more ghouls.
    NG+++: Add a ghoul.

    Twin Bridges To Platform
    NG++: Place a barbarian on the platform in front of the non-rickety bridge, add a ghoul.
    NG+++: Place a toxic dart blower on the Iato platform, add a ghoul who only aggros while the player is crossing the bridge.

    Platforms to the bonfire
    NG++: Add a barbarian above the final ladder.

    From the bonfire, not progressing further in the level
    NG++: At the base of the long ladder down place two more ghouls.
    NG+++: Add a poison blower at the end of the ledge where the three blooming moss clumps are on the beam.

    Rickety bridge
    NG++: Trigger two mosquitoes to attack the player as they cross the bridge.
    NG+++: Trigger eight mosquitoes to attack the player as they cross the bridge.

    Passed The Rickety Bridge
    NG++: Add a red dog.
    NG+++: Add a ghoul.

    Stone bridge from bonfire progressing the level[b]
    NG++: Add a ghoul to chain aggro with the two dogs.
    NG+++: Add a red dog.

    [b]Platforms Before First Cave

    NG++: Add two ghouls.
    NG+++: Add three ghouls.

    Eagle Shield Battlement
    NG+++: Add a barbarian in front of the eagle shield.

    Ladder up to toxic dart blower from the platforms before the caves
    NG++: Add two Ghouls flanking the dart blower.
    NG+++: Add a toxic dart blower.

    Tunnels from toxic dart blower
    NG++: Add two ghouls.
    NG+++:Add two boulder barbarians that have line of site of the next lower walkway in the hollowed battlement going downwards.

    Tunnels to behind power within parasite wall clinger
    NG++: Add three ghouls who aggro after the barbarian once through the tunnel.
    NG+++: Add a barbarian with the three ghouls added.

    The Swamp
    So the swamp is rather a curious beast, being that there are no normal enemies common to it other than those chaos spider things, that regardless are not very hard. It would be my thought that if made more difficult merely the respawning mosquito swarm would respawn faster, and in more numerous numbers. Along with this leeches could be placed more generously about the swamp. This coupled with the swamp being dark would give such restricted vision for a nightmarish effect.

    Quelaag Boss Fight
    This is one of those fights that is great as is and really doesn’t have any interesting way to increase the challenge. It doesn’t fit to have enemies spawn to help her out, and her health and damage couldn’t be altered in a meaningful way. It would be more interesting to have two quelaags at the same time, but being Quelaag is a specific person, this wouldn’t make much sense. The best I could imagine for increasing the difficulty is having the lava not fade away.

    Ceaseless Discharge
    NG+++: remove trick to kill ceaseless discharge.

    Sen’s Fortress
    Again, as always, make any area that isn’t explicitly lit dark. This would mean most of the fortress if I am not mistake. Which is horrifying.

    First Room with Pillars
    NG++: Place two serpents right and left of just past the entryway.
    NG+++: Place a serpent mage at the top of the steps.

    First two bridges
    NG++: Add a serpent on the higher bridge to drop down once the serpent on the lower bridge is aggroed.
    NG+++: Add two balder crossbowmen on the upper bridge.

    Room Beyond the Second Bridge
    NG++: Add two serpent men in this room.
    NG+++: Make the chest a mimic.

    Boulder Ramp
    NG++: Add three serpents on the ledge near Seigemeyer. Add two balder knights in the room behind the serpent mage.
    NG+++: Add two balder crossbowmen flank the serpent mage.

    Room before next boulder ramp
    NG++: Add a serpent.
    NG+++: Add a serpent.

    Second Boulder Run
    NG++: Add two baldur knights on the ledge with the serpent mage that drop down as the player runs by.

    Mimic Room
    NG++: Add a serpent.
    NG+++: Add a rapier baldur knight.

    Boulder Control Room

    NG+++: Add three baldur knights

    Third Swinging Bridge
    NG++: Add a baldur crossbowman at the end of the bridge.

    NG++: Add a serpent in the middle of the bridge.
    NG+++: Add two serpents at the end of the bridge.

    NG++: Add two baldur crossbowmen at the corners of the bridge who can be hurt by firebombs.
    NG+++: Add a baldur crossbowman in between the two others, add a baldur knight before the first crossbowman.

    Bridge to tarkus
    NG++: Add a rapier baldur knight. (Or a steel greatsword knight, couldn't decide)
    NG+++: Add two baldur crossbowmen behind the baldur knight.

    Steel Knight
    NG++: Add two baldur knights flanking the steel knight.

    Firebomb Giant
    NG++: Make him respawn.
    NG+++: Make him impervious to damage. Make his firebombs impervious to player attacks.

    Iron Golem Boss Fight
    NG++: Give the Iron Golem a sever hike in HP, greatly reduce how long he stays toppled, or the amount of time he is staggered before the player can topple him.
    NG+++: Give the Iron Golem infinite HP, and when toppled have the golem rise back to his feet almost immediately.

    Anor Londo
    First Treasure Room
    NG++: Add two sentinels barring the exist to the bonfire courtyard. Make sentinels chain pull their partner whenever aggroed.
    NG+++: Make the two original sentinels royal sentinels. Change one of the chests to a mimic.

    ....and? I'm sorry, but I don't really like reading changes people feel should have happened, rather I'd like to see them implemented.
    I'm still thinking of running a private server on the comp version with several changes to make it more difficult.

    Again like I said, it's a dumb thread, I was bored.

    BUT THE PRIVATE SERVER THING IS WHAT I ALSO WANTED TO TRY!

    And I'll probably start uploading my no bonfire run later if you want to see a difficult thing implemented.

    Would definitely make the game more challenging and fun. I would say balance the ridiculous increase in damage so that light armor builds have a place in PvE.

    This is extensive. I was imagining a couple of the suggestions and I agree whole heartedly.

    I always thought that if they implemented a randomization of mobs within the areas it would create that sense of the unknown that we get during our first playthroughs!

    Great write-up!

    How is one supposed to beat the Iron Golem if he's immune to damage? Also, the firebomb giant nukes the Iron Golem battle if you leave him alive, making the battle nearly impossible, so making him invincible doesn't really work.

    Maybe making it where your hits count for stagger without the damage this way you're forced to make him fall off the field. I agree with the fireballs though, it forces the fight to either bridge and not the main field making the fight super restricted! Than again, maybe this is the desired effect!

    Hey, Buggy's fully positive now! big grin

    I like your suggestions. More enemies, and different enemy placement, would greatly add to the experience. I actually like the consistent enemy placement, as it allows for the precise planning and execution required for speed runs, but as you suggested I think they should change with NGs. What I mean is, every NG the enemies are always the same; in NG+ they're different from NG, but every NG+ is the same; same for NG++, and so on. Obviously From couldn't make an unlimited number of enemy placements, but they could make a certain number of them and make them cycle, or when you get to NG+infinity they could be in random order, etc. Also:

    Black Phantom Mode! Still needs to happen. Would add enemies, in new positions, and increase the difficulty.

    Thanks, post your own suggestions if you like, this isn't a very serious thread as I can't actually do this, so I would love to hear other people's ideas too.

    Push him off the edge. (And you didn't hear it from me, but if his firebombs are destroyed he stops throwing, but since the player can't destroy them. . . Unless you baited the giant into destroying his own firebombs. . . hmm. . .)

    You get the first +1 for noticing, now that I can give alter since I'm have positive! I forgot this would mean I could alter other people now!

    I really want to do black phantom mode with someone, but the sad thing is if you do you will be screwing over two other players.

    I didn't notice you had other suggestions beside enemy placement--such as making the Iron Golem invincible. I'll give this thread the respect it deserves and read it through. (Tomorrow, though!) Having the fireball giant be invincible wouldn't be such a huge inconvenient anyways, since he only throws the fireballs in the center of the arena. Especially if the only way to kill the Golem would be to make him fall, since you have to be on the bridges for that, where the giant doesn't throw.

    First of all I would like to say how much I admire Buggy Virus's tenacity, hard work and devotion to Dark Souls. In fact the same sentiments apply to a lot of people on this wiki (too many to list) who give the their time freely, so that lesser mortals like myself can get as much as possible from the game. I salute you all.

    However, I can't be the only one who thinks that Dark Souls is quite hard enough thank you, although I would have no objection to any of the suggestions made by Buggy Virus, as long as they formed part of an optional difficulty level and I could carry on struggling with the game as it is.

    Maybe randomizing Mimics each playthrough, where every chest has a chance to be a Mimic? That would always keep you on your toes.

    Roving enemies that patrol areas, different ones for each area and whatever they are they'll be tough, might that work, that way you either have to time yourself to avoid patrols or risk being ambushed in the middle of doing something.

    You know, I never noticed that there are no enemies in dark souls that actually patrol, that's a good point. That would be really cool for the Duke's if there were a ton of roving channelers.

    ^Turn Dark Souls into a stealth game? silly

    I like the idea of some super-powerful enemies roaming randomly, though. When you're faced with them (you crap your pants) you go into fight or flight mode! Would add another layer of tension to the gameplay, that's for sure.

    Probably should have put in more things that are related to the subtle canon references, like pardoners in the painted world, or an occult shield wielder.
