      If anyone happens to read this with knowledge of the weapons and items that have been nerfed as well as buffed as of late 2019, meaning ain't nothin ever gonna change again, and could list or just send me in the right direction of where I might be able to find said information, I would be very grateful. In the past when I have asked this I was directed to excel spreadsheets of complex looking values for every weapon in the game. That's cool and all, but I just want a simple list, what has been nerfed and buffed from the first, to the last patch. Example, raw astora ss nerf, raw broadsword buff. Heavy and refined nerf, sharp buff.

        Well Hello and Greetings.Welcome to Dark Souls wiki!!! The Dark Souls 3 Community here is full of good people that promote positive discussions and that actually helps people get better at the game, feel better about themselves and command a more enjoyable experience for all. Please understand that to even ask a question (meaning there is something about Dark Souls that you don't already know and have not known for AWHILE) makes you inferior to everyone that has ever existed in the history of the world and of all things living or dead. Now I think that you should hit yourself as hard as you can in the face 3-4 times. Also consider jumping out of a moving car between 15-20 kph once a day, everyday, for the next 5 days. For this we all yield praise "Git Gud"!!!!! Now go harm your pets, yay!!!

          Just ordered DS2 cuz it was on sale at the microsoft store for $9. I hear that veteran players of this game find DS2 much easier in comparison. Any feedback?

            I'm pretty new to dark souls. I played the first one when I was 11 or 12 and found it way to hard, totally out of my depth as a preteen. But I got this as a gift for my birthday a couple months ago and I have become hooked, and I definitely plan to buy the remastered version for xbox as well. Only thing I do not like is the hate messaging I get constantly from PvP players. It's a totally different game in that regard, strategy is so vastly different from the way you approach the environment. I was really horrible when I started, I got invaded and just assumed it was game over unless the blue dude came along to help me. But I made nice friends in the community that hosted fight clubs where I could practice, I got my confidence up which I think was my main problem, I can now parry any weapon attack that is able to be parried pretty much on instinct, mages are troublesome but I rarely see them anymore. I used to use a greatshield, now I rarely use any shield unless it is used to parry or absorb elemental damage from boss AoEs, and I'm not really big on invading, but if I get invaded, I went from winning only like 5% of the time a few weeks ago, to winning about 85% of the time now. I have found this game very rewarding. But like last week, I noticed I had over half a dozen messages of pure hate from users I don't even remember fighting. Like really nasty stuff. I have gotten all my items needed to max out covenant ranks, so I have no use of invading anymore, and when I do, it's playing mainly with friends joking around, trying to kill each other with the broken sword. When I do get invaded and kill the invader, I don't point down, even if I beat them in a matter of seconds, I just go on with my normal game. I guess the reason I'm writing this is to ask the community if this is normal, or is this more just an xbox thing? I realize this probably sounds really naive, however, I don't play video games much at all now with school, and never play online games aside from this, and my friends say that it happens to them but that it's usually rare or just the same frustrated player that is unhappy. Just over the last week I have gotten messages from 6 different accounts mad as all heck. I've had to block 3 members, so I gotta ask, is this normal for this game on ps4 and pc as well, or am I just that lucky? I'm seriously asking.

              I had a few free minutes today and I was back playing some DS3 for the first time in awhile and I found a lot of inaccurate info about the best (highest AR) raw weapons in the game. A lot of it seems to stem from the various buffs and nerfs as the patches have changed the way we play the game very significantly from the time it was released until October 2019. I still cannot find an up to date list without individually searching for the specific weapon I want and then cross checking it with the raw infusion. So this is just some things I have come across naturally through trial and error. Note I am only including weapons that are very effectively wielded as raw weapons, meaning no stat investment higher than 13 in any category and weighing no more than 5 units, as the point of using raw weapons is that we want to focus instead on early game survivability by placing points into vigor and endurance, until hitting the soft caps of 40/40.Also it must be a weapon you can obtain early game, as in before Road of Sacrifices.There is however one exception I will make, only because of it's ridiculously high AR and that is the dragonslayer axe. You don't get this weapon until mid gameish (not counting DLC) but at +9 it has a 457 AR. Because of this it has to be mentioned. It's the only raw weapon that I can say is still formidable taking into NG +. However, it requires 18 str and 14 dex, it shares a good deal of split damage coming in the form of lightning, and you have to carefully follow the NPC Sirris's questline in order to receive. That said, many enemies are weak to lightning and the axe can also be buffed with with any resin and features the warcry skill that tacts on even more damage, so you have to mention it at the very least, it's really a monster and all over the PvP scene as I'm sure you all know. It's my favorite raw weapon and I think you might want to consider setting aside enough shards to take it to it's highest level possible as soon as you get it. If you have the ashes DLC, you can make it a +10 weapon the second you get it, and still have two slabs left over, if you have completed that part of the DLC. So that's pretty awesome. So here is my top 5 from highest AR to lowest at the +9 upgrade level (with an * next to the dragonslayer axe as it requires stats above 13): *1.DragonSlayer Axe (received as part of Sirris's questline found behind a gravestone near the Church Of Yorshka bonfire where you will be invaded by an NPC as part of the quest.) 2.Mace (sold by Greirat as soon as you save him) 3.Falchion (this is not a guaranteed drop, it must be farmed, but can be done so very early, check the site for farming location in undead settlement.It's definitely worth your time.) 4.Broadsword (found near the badly nerfed astora sword which makes it a pointless weapon imo) 5.Battle Axe (This is a guaranteed drop if you convert the deep axe into a raw weapon. I would probably not mess with this, but it's a decent raw weapon that features warcry.) I only learned english a couple years ago, I speak it better than I write it, so sorry if I spelled something wrong or have poor grammar. Please feel free to fact check this, I could be wrong about the order, or maybe I missed one that you know about. The one thing that really sucks about this list is that none of these weapons have a thrusting attack (RIP Astroa SS), despite the broadsword having a pointed tip that was designed for thrusting and sharing the same weapon art as the other straight swords. I just wish I knew more about raw weapons before starting the game, because I would have built my character very differently. My second character started as a knight, with a fire gem (first longsword right away!) used a combo of the raw mace and falchion and I was able to just pour stats into vigor and edurance until I got to 40/40. I then got the 18/14 for the dragonslayer axe and it was like the game went into easy mode. I began fine tuning into a strength build that used the insanely good millwood battle axe with a heavy gem, which again made the game feel like easy mode. Even the Ringed City was not bad with that weapon. So I hope this helps one person. Cheers.

                Lorewise, what exactly is the motivation for the character to even leave firelink? Is there any urgency for him doing anything? Likely just sit with the depressed hawkwood.

                  Wish this community would get a little less toxic. God I can barely win without getting reported. Then every time I win a few times then the person gets lucky they throw dung pies and point down. These chimps need to go back to fortnite. Can barely play without this happening. Sitting here using a dagger and they think they are hot***** r1 spamming getting 1 out of 6 kills and think they are good enough to throw dung and point down. Scrubs.

                    Fun fact ----> If you play through all of the trilogy and finish them all you will be left with: A sense of accomplishment ... and a massive hangover.

                      is there a new cheat at work? Get constant "host lost connection" as a blue and then send back ALWAYS shortly before I kill the invader. Happened in swamp area and cathedral.

                          I own a PS4, but I always play souls games, and hardcore RPGs the require 100s-1000s of hours on PC for obvious reasons. The PC scene, like others have said is very active at all SL's. But when I was showing my friends son how to develop a build on PS4, I think we only had 1-2 invasions and about 6 summons for Darkmoon, in about 60 hours of total playtime. So a full normal playthrough with the DLC. So it's pretty dead. I do know for a fact, that some PC users have ways to edit there save files in such a way that it can travel to their Xbox's. Because a large number of serious PC gamers use the Windows OS, there seem to be ways through certain programs to make your PC save compatible with Microsoft systems. There are several videos on youtube where people transfer their saves into Xbox from PC and vice versa. I was able to take my Skyrim save from my old 360 and transfer it to the PC and then back again onto the 360. I'm guessing it might be more challenging to do it on Xbox One, but I watched a guy do it on youtube do it with several games, including DS 3 from PC to Xbox. So that is something to consider.
