    Darkness Challenge Run

    Post by Dark Spirit EliteBiker20 on Thu Jul 26, 2012 3:35 pm

    This challenge run is not for the faint of heart, but for the greatly experienced players. What this run involves, is going through the entire game with thebrightness turned all the way down to zero.

    Rules:
    Turn the brightness setting all the way down.


    Whats Allowed:

    Any weapon, any armor (except Sunlight Maggot Helm), any spell (except Cast Light), any equipment (except Skull Lanturn), you can stop at any, or all bonfires if needed, you can join any covenant, you can summon anybody you want to help, but the same rules apply.

    Whats NOT Allowed:

    Sunlight Maggot Helm, Skull Lantern, Cast Light Sorcery.



    Basically this Challenge run is meant for no lights what-so-ever. This will make areas of the game, like Tomb of the Giants, and New Londo Ruins extremely difficult, unless you know what your doing. It can also make areas cooler, like Demon Ruins, which has all that lava to light your way.

    I am looking forward to seeing who can complete this run. I may try it myself, but I am busy right now with one of my characters. Have fun with this Challenge Run, and remember not to quit if the going gets hard.

    I never even bother with using lights in tomb of the giants anymore. You can run by every enemy without much difficulty, even without a light source.

    Yeah I'm the same Fruit, so I've actually already done this challenge. Wooo!

    Too bad I can't record my game so I can actually prove I've done it. sad

    You do realize I said you have to have the game brightness setting turned all the way down? That is the main part of the challenge. Even if you dont use lights in ToG, you still have to turn the brightness down, and go through the rest of the game to actually complete the challenge.

    BTW, turning the brightness down makes all areas dark, and to fully complete the challenge you hve to have beaten all area of the game, including the Painted World, and Depths.

    Actually that does look kinda cool, i dont know though. Seems more like a hassle then a challenge. It is an interesting idea though .

    Oh, the whole world. I've done most of the world with it all the way down, my first playthrough in fact. Because I was an idiot and set it dark at the start, then never changed it and the game looked like utter ***. I'd say it's more so just annoying than difficult.

    I read the challenge too and completely missed the part where you said to turn the brightness down. You should bold it so people can see it better.

    I re-edited the post, making it claer that you have to turn the game brightness down.

    That's a funny idea! I'll try it... when I start playing the game again. :/

    I think it would be almost impossible in some areas. I was looking in New Londo and ToG, and when I turned the brightness down, I had no clue where to go. Talk about some scary fights..... Creatures popping out everywhere and scaring the **** out of you....... hahahaha
