IMPORTANT! News about the limited enemy re-spawn worries

#1agentpheonixPosted 2/20/2014 4:02:44 PM(edited)
This is from the recently translated German review, thanks to Shinjipl for posting the link here.

"Bonfires can be leveled up from the beginning to give you more Estus flasks or you can throw in items that make the enemies in the area tougher. Great for grinding, bad for farming items because the enemies only re-spawn a certain number of times. "

Could this be the info we've been waiting for? Everyone was worried about limited enemy respawns that have been mentioned.

Perhaps it is only the Bonfire Ascetic enemies that have limited respawn? That would make a lot of sense and would ease my fears about them.

EDIT: Here's the link if you missed it:

Perhaps the tougher enemies respawn a set number of times.
Normal enemies always respawn.
This is what I got from this text.
And I like it.

That's what I'm getting too, I really hope that's the case. I am 100% cool with that.

How are you guys getting that? It says enemies respawn a certain number of times. It does not say "certain"enemies or "specific" enemies.

He mentions that directly after describing the affects of burning a bonfire ascetic...

It is just a translation, but he does specify "THE" enemies, not just enemies in general

And the whole upgrading the bonfire doesn't upgrade your uses. It upgrades how much it heals.

Your charges on your estus flask is upgraded via the estus shards given to the Emerald Herald.

overall: 90%

breakdown:

Graphics:7/10
Sound 7/10
Singleplayer:10/10

80% (24/30) = 90%... without even testing the online component??

The fanboy bias is strong with this one...
