    When did you know......

    Post by Kirk-Barb on Fri Aug 03, 2012 12:05 pm

    When did you know that you were no longer a pvp beginner?

    Last night I suddenly realized some of my opponents were now using devine blessings to heal. Used to be they didn't need to heal at all, then of course humanity consumption started happening, now it seems it is only safe for them to heal using devine blessing. I must be getting something right. 👽

    That is probably a sign, those devine blessings piss me off though. I think i realized i was noob status anymore when i started landing parries.

    When i became confident with my build and welcomed invades. When that happens you start to look to skill and strategy instead of spamming R1 and removing crutch items. where the appearance of you character is more important then poise. I dont feel im a complete push over anymore. Im always up for dueling

    I am still a PvP beginner, or at least not a Veteran. At no point could I ever say that my wins came from defeating my opponent, instead of them making a mistake.

    Once I picked a thing.

    By this I mean, every character has their thing. Whether it be high poise, high criticals (OHKO), flipping about like a nutter or whatever. My thing is randomness. Atm my main DW has 7 ways to inflict direct damage (lightning, fire and poison) and i can switch between them very fast. Always catches people off guard when i hit out with a fire tempest whilst being inside 3 poison mists big grin

    Very recently, when I ditched poise and have been landing parries almost every match (not parry spamming). I've currently got rid of the DWGR and all heavy armor, and I'm using daggers to get better at dodging with fast roll and parrying. Honestly, it's the most fun I've had dueling over any other builds I've done yet.

    When I started winning against gankers in the forest and actually enjoying invading there. I still like the good 1v1 duels but nothing beats winning a 2v1 by yourself.

    I played through the whole game PvE, offline, then started reading the wiki and slowly getting into PvP.

    I started a new toon with the express intent of becoming a Darkwraith, got him to Anor, and there he stayed. Invading. Invading. And invading some more. Mostly losing to hosts and their two phantoms on their way to O&S.....

    ....slowly but surely I started to get better, and the hosts, (at least the NG level appropriate ones) started to die by my hand. But still I was a n00b. ....Just not as n00by as them silly

    More time passed, and I started to occasionally win some 2, and even 3, on 1's. A little while after that I realized I was an unstoppable killing machine....

    ....

    silly

    ......ok, well, at least I wasn't a beginner anymore, and I knew it.

    I despise the "word" noob. Its supposed to mean new player, so why must it be used to insult players less skilled (arguably) than one self?


    Anyways, when I started winning ganks is when I figured I had gotten decent.

    When I began dueling at the Burg and learned to counter backstab. And when I beat roan, reim, forum, rant and damage I know I'm no noob, cause they are some of the best fighters in DkS PSN.
