how hard is the game unpatched?

#1X-PICU-XPosted 10/16/2013 9:51:42 AM
I dont care if I get less souls, but the dificulty is what I want. I read a post bout someone mentioning some ninja_gaignun being a beast playing unpatched, thats why Im curious. Also, ring of steel protection is really that bad? it raise def with 50 points so it must make some diference, or havels its better? Im returning to the game cause DS2 & want to get better in pvp since I suck so much. Im not asking for build by the way, just if it a good idea to practice unpatched or it better to just pvp with randoms.

It's easier.

Unless you go "Oh well I won't use this, or that, or these things, or this other thing" and basically deliberately exclude every single thing in the unpatched game that is way stronger. And if you're going to go out of your way to limit yourself in all these different ways, may as well just do a patched SL1 always human run in NG+6.

From the topic title I had guessed you were reading Ninja_Gaigun's crap.
I've heard that ai was more aggressive . I can't remeber but it wasn't bad.

its way harder, a lot of people are delusional about the game's difficulty
before you couldnt buy all the stone types or any of the starting items,
now they practically hand them out for free, and i think they nerfed some enemies to be easier, its been a while since i played this game, but im fairly certain a boss at one point got nerfed

well, ending the game 6 time its annoying... maybe? Also, I started a SL1 run but when I killed O&S I decide to stop cause didnt find it so dificult. If its more agressive then its fun. The reason why I dont pvp much its cause the lag, not always but when it happens it f*** me up. So its better to keep pvp with randoms & get used to the lag... sadly. Good thing that DS2 will have dedicated servers XD

TC ive got a challenge for you. 1st of all, I highly recommend prepatch play. Offline this game shines, online brings a dark cloud over it. but anyway try this..

will require you to get to ng+ and remember prepatch pyro mag adjust is 270. serious fun!

Only hard thing about it(if you don't cheat)is the lack of souls and farming.


...oh yeah try farming the darkwraiths, they pull in packs of 3+

I had a lot of trouble in NG+ and beyond when I went for the platinum the first time but an experienced player shouldn't have any trouble at all.
