I want to wait until all 3 DLC packs come out, seems pointless to play any of the DLC packs until then.

Listen, I don't wanna sound like a complete prick but either:

A) You really suck or

B) Dark Souls 2 is pretty difficult to play. =(

Dark souls is a pretty pointless game.. Skill really makes no difference. 

All bosses require the same strategy, 

1.find flaws in the developers AI of each boss, exploit them

2. Summon as many friends/NPCS as possible so they can distract boss, allowing you to whack it in the ass all day

3. Pray that you don't get hit by a rogue/sloppy hitregistration one-hit-kill boss whack

4.Repeat

A for sure, if you look at the other 2 he summoned, they don't have anywhere near as much trouble with the boss.

@dannydopamine8 So, basically the noob strategy?


Skilled players will level right, wear the right gear and charge in solo :P

@dannydopamine8 Well surely if there were no flaws to be found in the AI there would be no way of defeating the bosses. The entire point is to play the game and face defeat until you discover their weakness. That is the part that requires skill because it is rarely easy to see.

That was harder in the first Dark Souls, in II I found you could brute force your way through most of them pretty easily.

Summoning people is optional I completed this entire game without once summoning a person.

@dannydopamine8 I dunno, actually; I just don't think you have any idea what you're talking about. Kite with spells only works with maxed out characters who spammed The Giant King. 


I see alot of people I invade die without getting one hit on me. They just run off and summon Sunbros for me to duel with. 


Then they fall off a a cliff of all things 50%of the time xD


& I use pure melee builds for online so your kite garbage is bull.


Your view on 'skill' is very esoteric in this game, if you have no skill or bother to learn? Don't blame the whole game on personal laziness. 


Or as the community will state "get gud"


By all means though try Kiting though the Sunken King DLC. It'll be just as fun it failing in PvE as it is PvP xD

@RSM-HQ @dannydopamine8 There really is no skill in DS 2 pvp. The hit boxes are garbage, the reliance on backstabs and easy baby's first parry spams is stupid. They dumbed pvp down so much that it became boring. Overall 99% of the time you end up with a lagger who lags only at the perfect times when you land a strike or they flat out lag until they get behind you.  Overall DS 1 and 2's PVP system isn't as good as Demon Souls. Before people knew the ridic glitches the game was fantastic for back and forth pvp.
