    The story of a desperate man

    Post by Carphil on Tue Jul 17, 2012 6:59 pm

    So, I'm making a new build for sl 225 duels. This toon is currently soul level 75, and I defeated every lord and boss in NG except for Four Kings. I really have a hard time fighting them by myself so I went down New Londo to summon someone.

    Everything normal until now right? Okay, I instantly see about 10 white signs and 3 gold signs. All right! THis is going to be quick. As I try to summon the nearest sign, it fails. Ok, no peoblem I'll try another sign. It fails again, and again, and again. Darn, I'll quit reload. Done, all 13 signs appear again. Come on, this time it will work! Finally, I summoned the first white phantom! We both bow, and I try to summon another phantom. I know, I know the fight will be easy, but I don't want to lose all my souls and humanity right now silly The second phantom shows up, and I comemorate doing the Joy! gesture. Both phantoms do Shrug! and use black crystal. WTF? I'll summon other people! Summoning phantom, summoning phantom, darkmoon invades, summon fail. Come on! I'll defeat this guy! Darkmoon uses TWoP and Crystal Soul Spear. *Facepalm* I won't give up! Turn human, go down new londo, summon two different phantoms, the last one just spawns and use black crystal. What the hell is going on here? The second phantom do Shrug and use black crystal too! Oh no, you can't be serious. Summon a sunbro, whatever we both can defeat the boss! Sunbro run like crazy and jump off the cliff. Same darkmoon invades and use same strategy. Looks like four kings can wait.

    And right now i'm farming humanity in the Depths while hollow.

    Sorry for wall of text

    They are trying to play with friends, a system that Dark Souls would do well to include.

    Because you can't stop people from playing with friends, just annoy randoms who summon your friends and force a BSS.

    Well, 10 minutes is kind of a random thing to make your friend wait through who is sitting trying to summon you. . .

    And I doubt people troll like that, seems, inconsequential.

    yea, tried to summon other 2 different people, and they suicided too. I raged a lot, then defeat the kings after dying 2 times, with the help of Beatrice. You can never trust a human!

    If only you were on Xbox, i could give you all the souls you need to level up. And I would be able to help you with the four kings.

    Well that would be extreme bad luck! Maybe I killed one of them and they wrote my name on the wikidot list of guilty!

    When Co-oping with Serious, I remember that we combined to put our signs in hidden places, so only we could know where. You can use the PSN email and chat system, its not that hard.

    you co-op for profit, why pass up free souls, plus if you were waiting for a friend find somewhere less obvious to put your sign, like down by the blk smith or under a pot.

    exactly! I just find odd so many people trying to co op in a place like this!

    Happened to me in O&S... Granted, i was near SL 100, so I guess there's only friends helping friends up there. I don't see any summons now that I'm SL 130+

    thanks for offering help lol I hate 4 kings.

    And yes, I message 3 of them, no answer.

    Actually, one of them sent me this message:

    "lol spamming - no skill"

    I was like: This world makes absolutely no sense.

    Stories like that make me glad I always just soloed the game... That sucks for you. If I'm trying to get summoned by a friend and get summoned by a random, I always message them if I crystal out, to explain that I'm trying to play with a friend. And I put my sign somewhere out of the way, to minimize random summons. Sometimes I'll help real quick, but most of the time I'll crystal out and send a message.

    I think the best thing to do when you go solo, is to bring a skull lantern. That way, you will always have someone to talk to you and guide you at the same time... and can pack a punch greater than yo fist.

    Sadly I had the ability to cast light, and the poor lantern was nothing more than a skull on my backpack. But sometimes I talk to my Silver sword, if that makes any sense.

    Carp, that happened to me a while ago, but instead of darkmoon it was the same darkwraith invading me using fire shotels.
    Every summon crystal blacked out. Every single one of them.
    I finished doing them solo. Unfortunately I did loose my stain that day.
    It was kind of annoying.
    I can help you tonight if you want. It doesn't matter if you are on xbox or ps3.
    I have available toons in both systems.
    Just let me know and I would gladly help you to take them out.

    Thanks a lot buddy, but I managed to beat them with beatrice. Like you, I lost my bloodstain too, but this is Dark Souls right? winking

    Exactly Carp... This is Dark Souls... So freaking punishing sometimes. I know you know how to handle them, I guess we have beaten them several times in different playthroughs or cooping, but sometimes you have a lot of souls and humanity gathered by then that a little help doesn't hurt.
    A funny anecdote is, every time I want to get the 4 Kings I coop them first to check muy build against them, weapons and armor and I destroy them. Then I reverse my hollowing, If I can I summon a phantom and then the first king destroys me with hist first 1-2 attack... Look Skyward
    Anyway, my psn is at the bottom and you can add if me you like to do some jolly cooperation.
    Cheers mate!!! happy

    You can see 10 white signs at once lol. I have one of the best connections in the world and I can see 3 or 4 at most at once.

    Btw I am a 4kings veteran. Beat them on NG+++++++ with a low level char. I have learned every dirty trick they have, no match for me anymore. Yeah!!
