      Wonder what happens when we beat the dlc...? I mean it ends the age of fire so...what happens to the game. Are we forced to start a new cycle? The lore implications are astounding...also think we will see the final "londor sister" here? We saw one in vanilla killed one in ariendel so how will we see the third...

        I hope they make chimes and talismans infusable.
        For example Talismans are used for mostly PVP because of their hyper armor.And the most used pvp miracles are lighting based offensive spells.
        Make talismans infusable with lightning so that talismans become item for offensive playstyles and hit much more harder with lighting based miracles.But doing that reduces Healed amount of HP with healing spells.
        Make chimes infusable with blessed so that spells that include; weapon spells,healing spells,and stat boosting spells (deep protection,sacred oath) becomes more effective.
        I bet there will be other ideas better than mine i hope this starts an idea for making infusions less trash other than REFINED.

          Things that would be good to have or changed.
          Blue Cathedral Knight Set,Gold winged knight set,Blue Lothric Knight Set,Giant set with Father mask,Steel Set.
          Blessed weapon buff just like cathedral knights use when hit on ground they explode.
          Attument stat makes spells cast more quick not dex.
          Dragon rider halberd.
          DS2 style rapier moveset so it wont be so quick to spam but had more frontal movement so that you dont have to spam.
          DS2 style re-skinned weapons.
          Different paths you take brings you to different places not like different paths lead you to same places.(Remember DS2 DLC maps.)

            VaatiVidya did a great video on this DLC, aflter playing it (or mostly a part of it).
            There are tons of interesting informations about everything we'll find in the DLC, and in what he said, it really feels like DS 2 was not that much a "canon".
            About the content itself, you should watch his video untitled "everything before the first boss" (which is the crimson bat / Demon From bellow / Demon prince), because there are too much things to say and it contains many spoilers.

            I'm really thinking about what Aldia said in Dark souls 2. I think, we'll meet him, or have some lore connexion about him, in the end of the world, and maybe, he'll bring us the conclusion of the game.
            In what he said, he'd like to find a place, beyond the scope of light, beyond the reach of dark, which is finnally what wants to create the painter from Ashes of Ariandel. This "cold but gentle place", made of the fire and the dark itself.
            Hoooo, really, I'd really like to see that world, between both dark and light, warm and cold.. Maybe the age of the deep sea.. Maybe the reason why angels are here? What lies beyond the one true end.

                See as an artist myself and have played all 5 games including demon souls and the first dark souls being the longest in the series visually looks appealing but I'm hoping for more non generic mobs and NPCs I would have definitely loved to see a tie to pharros or gravelord into or even the four kings give us something that we haven't done a build for yet. Chaos....pffft btdt fire....btdt lightning...btdt dark/deep......btdt bleed and so on. And give more and much better armors and weapons I mean follower saber.....come on that's trash spamming with no skill we as the community of players deserve quality and quantity give us another 8 hours of play with the dlc and give us something that will keep us wondering. I don't know how your " samurai\ eastern" style and based new project will go but you already have other game companies mimicking you aka "nioh" don't get me wrong be it asteticly pleasing and very driven by character development we need more!

                  The Ripping-Off Dark Souls 2 City
                  Giant Door Shield---->Orma and Reeve Great Shield Combo
                  Aquamarine Dagger----->Ivory Straight Sword
                  Lightning Throwing Bow from trailer----->Bow of Want
                  Desert Pyromancer Set----->Didnt even changed the name
                  Earthen Peak----->Didnt even changed the name
                  When you just copied from DS1,DeS,Bloodborne and realised DS2 is the one that has the most creative things.
                  Fınally more DS2 content and hopefully with more quality creative ideas alongside with it.

                    I would expect you won't agree with me but I want to say this regardless: I was disappointed by the base game. The movesets of the weapon were all the same (thanks god for the weapon art, at least), the fashion souls was bad, the original ideas were really a few, the epicness of the open-world structure of the first Dark Souls was vanished and the poise (yes, I'm saying this again) was vanished. Then the first DLC came out... Well, I would have appreciated that DLC if it was not so "Blooborne-esque". I mean: why all that blood related to the flame!?
                    Anyway... I love Dark Souls!! The games are challenging and rewarding, the story/lore is great and the art design is sweet. For these reasons, I have great expectations for this last Dark Souls DLC. Hopefully this will be a satisfying ending (but if one of the 3 bosses is that Demon Prince it is already a bad beginning).

                      I really like the dragon head shield. Hopefully the it has 100% physical block and the weapon art shoots fire. Planning on using it along with the Dragonslayer swordspear.

                        I just got through with my third run of the game and a question came in my head after IP dark so after your third time will we have to have done a certain ending to access the DLC? It's been bugging me all day let's hope from soft is not going to do that though as it is the last you'll see in the series

                          I was actually fairly dissapointed with the armor options in dark souls 3. I mean this is completely my opinion. But i feel most of the armors are torn or fur. Most are dark colored. And some even look the same with little variation. Knight armor, nameless knight armor. Several others. I guess i was expecting more options for fashion souls. The the ashes dlc came out and i was like finally! But it was more fur armor and torn armor but with a helmet that had antlers. Like i feel dark souls 1 and 2 had a lot more to choose from to mix and match. Its really hard in dark souls 3 to mix and match and have something actually look decent. To fix this i wish they could atleast add an option with rosaria and offer a pale tongue to be able to dye armor that way atleast the pieces are the same color and then the sets would match so much more. Like just changing the color of gear could make a lot more armor pieces match

                            All of you there is rumours of how the final boss will look like in the last dlc The Ringed City.
                            What do you think people is this the final boss?


                            • 14 Feb 2017 10:00  

                              Ok I will not lie. I want the last boss of this to be drowning in epic. Epic look epic attacks epic weapons epic music epic battlefield epic soul transposes EVERYTHING EPIC since it's the boss that literally ends dark souls(as we know it). Who agrees?
