Depths done - the first and only zone I've managed to do without a single death.

Somehow I don't think that Blighttown will be quite as accomodating...

When I do my speed-runs (which are crap and nowhere NEAR the record, still fun for me though.) The only 3 places I'm likely to die are Blighttown. Sen's Fortress. and Ornstein/Smough.

About sums it up. However, it's really not that bad the second time through.

I think I have a new favorite playstyle. It involves walking up directly towards enemies in my Stone Armor and hitting them on the head with a Zweihander until they stop moving.

Edit: Queelag down. Now to retrace my steps back to the sunlight.

What happened to the auto-resize?

Also; LOVING the game thus far. Quite a few big changes in the form of non-respawning mobs. And Summoning "levels" Being based on your total souls gained instead of the amount you've spent on levels.

At this point I've cleared about 9 zones, and I don't think I'm even halfway through the game =O This game is MASSIVE and I'm really excited to see what the speedrunning community can come up with in a few months =]

Many years ago, I used to play (casually & badly) Soul Calibur 2. My favorite character was Nightmare and my favorite "tactic" was spamming Rook Splitter. It was a very simple move to execute: just tilt the stick toward the opponent and press B to execute a massive overhead swing with a huge demonic greatword, interrupting most enemy attacks, knocking them into the ground and setting them up for another smash. Not that I needed many - just a few Rook Splitters were enough to defeat any opponent.

Basically, what I'm trying to say here is that Zweihander's 2HR2 is exactly like that.

I was doing that with my Drangliec Sword for quite awhile, so much poise break that after 2 hits, I'd stunlock any enemy. Then I met the Ironclad Soldiers in Iron Keep.....And I cried....And I cried....=[
