Approaching the endgame. Itís been a pretty great ride but I still find it sprawling in a way that, while impressive, detracts from the narrative (both story and design) somewhat. 80+ hours in and the best designed legacy dungeon is still Stormveil.

Bosses are still hella inconsistent. Iím beating my head against a wall with Malenia but beating Godskin Duo on the first try after stumbling into them with half my flasks already gone. I do like finding dungeons and mines I missed and killing the bosses in 3 hits.

I think I have all the stuff I need for save scumming all the endings except for FF. Should I view the first 5 then go get lit to see that one last?

I beat melenia in under 10 tries. Iíd been using rivers of blood and itís so op. Doesnít do shit for the last boss though, getting my ass handed to me on the beast.

I know I'm 5 years late but I achieved my platinum on Bloodborne. Now I can move on to Elden Ring.

Feel like a lot of that has to do with build variety, some bosses are just harder or easier for different builds and play styles (though really, gank bosses being easy for anyone is a surprise)... that said I didn't really struggle with Godskin Duo either though a lot of people seem to. Banging your head against Malenia is natural as she's definitely the hardest boss in the game by a good margin imo.

If youíre going to save scums then it doesnít really matter what order you do the endings in as long as your save is before you initiate the FF ending (basically, before you go into the doors)

Never done much PvP in these games but messed around and made a build and been invading a dueling the past few nights. Such a blast, even when it's 2v1 or 3v1.

I started new game + and Iím just annihilating everything in my path. I wish I had stocked up on stuff for upgrades before Instaryed though, didnít realize Iíd lose all the bell bearings and I want to start a different build. Rivers of blood is out of control. Iíd like to try a caster. Oh well.

Souls PvP is the best shit, shame it's kinda busted in Elden Ring but seems like From are trying to address it a bit in the newest update. Hopefully we get an arena at some point because DS3 arena was the best shit

Greatlance gang rise up

Yeah there's some sort of organization started by Oroboro and other known PvP guys that are trying to mediate between fans and From with the intent of improving PvP so I'm hopeful

Pretty confident that when we finally get DLC they'll use one of these Coliseums for an Arena

Yeah it's nice to see it's starting to pay off, pretty bleak hearing how depressed people like jeenine sound over the state of the game but I guess now the hype's dying down From has more of an incentive to fix PvP rather than just focusing on attracting new players

Yeah I'd be surprised if that wasn't the case, I doubt they'd add in all those coliseums if they were all pointless
