I tried to summon people once, no one joined. Maybe it was just coincidence, but I think people probably might not particularly enjoy fighting that one.

Maybe if the sucker didn't turn around so frigging fast...

 

What level are you? I could help, but at level 100 I'd need you to be around 85 I think.

Somewhere around 70, IIRC.

 

I'll probably leave that boss alone for now. Besides getting my ass handed to me, there's something uneasy about fighting Ebrietas. The fact that she's there minding her own business not even going aggro until you do  :/

 

 

 

 

Ok, who am I kidding, it's because she beats the ###### out of me  :laugh:

There is a potential story related reason for killing her ;)

The official guide shows she is weak to bolt damage and also the holy damage I think it is. So Ludwig for 50% bonus damage and the non-transformed mode of the threaded cane for 20%. Apply bolt paper to either of those weapons for maximum output.

Also if you're bloodtinge focussed, Evelyn and the cannon with bone arrow mash or whatever it's called wreck her if aimed at head.

 Did you guys get all the top blood gems and runes? I've been making my way through Chalice dungeons (still) and after dying (a lot) I'm on Defiled dungeoun and the boss here one-shots me, it's getting ridiculous. 

 

 On the plus side I've been getting quite a few invasions on Mensis and been doing pretty good with my +9 weapon, Souls experience does help some.

Not yet, but I've read how difficult the defiled dungeons can be. What level are you? Also is your weapon +9 because you used the blood rock on something else?

 

Seeing as defiled halves your health bar a good investment in vitality helps.

So I am not even kidding, this damn strategy guide has made me lost.  :/  :blush:  :rofl:

SPOILERS AHEAD FOR ANYONE WHO HAS NOT PLAYED. I was going to use the Spoiler thread but that would mean paragraphs of black text.

 

Since I decided not to start over I tried to pick it up and use the guide pretty much a little after after the Father G fight. I did tell the girl in the window about the Cathedral as well. I already broke down the brooch for a gemstone too.

 

I talked to the old person (not sure if it is a man, women, or witch) at the start of the cathedral and also lit the lamp. I followed the guide and it basically just told me to keep going down and down (basically stay to the left at the well, do not go right on the stairs to the right towards the first giant, but stopped telling me what to do after I opened the tomb or passage or whatever it is, So I went down those stairs and just kept going down and down until I got to a lamp and a door that I believe said entrance to Old Yarnham. I could not see any reference to that lamp or door in the guide at all. So it confused the hell out of me.

 

I felt like I had missed something so I went back to the Catherdral Ward lamp and checked out that area. There is the one gate when you go straight from the Cathedral Map and up the stairs that is closed completely, but I know I can pay the Messengers 10,000 Blood Souls to get the thing to open it or I believe I can do something in Old Yarnham instead. I am choosing to do something in Old Yarnham instead (at least for now, if someone can make a compelling argument to pay the messengers, I should be able to get 10,000 Blood Echoes.

 

Then I went the other way and took a right by the well (by the tree with the crazy portal that I now know to avoid) and took the path where you fight the two Giants. If you take a right at the first Giant there is another gate that is locked (I can see the switch on the other side) and if you take a left after the first Giant, you fight another giant, some crows and two big dudes and eventually get to a downstairs room that has a chest with a door to the left of it. That door to the left of the chest is closed for me when I try and open it, but the guide made it sound like it should be opened??? The guide also mentioned something about fighting Whispering Dreams or something like that? And I never saw them at all?? Did I not have enough Insight activated?

Because I thought it may be insight related, I used all my Madmans Knowledge.

I am now at 13 Insight I believe. Don't know if that was a mistake or not.  :laugh:

 

So should I...

  • Go back to the Old Yarnham lamp and finally enter Old Yarnham?
  • Or can I open that door by the chest past the path with the two giants (it was the path you get the Monocular) and I am missing something obvious?
  • Or should I purchase the thing to open the gate for 10,000 Blood Echoes?

 

I know I am asking a lot of questions here, and all of it is me going off of memory as I am at work so the details may be a little weird so it may or may not make sense, but I am hoping it does and in particular perhaps Audioboxer can reply since he also has the guide.  :D (Y)

As far as I know, the badge to open the gate is optional. You don't need to buy it in order to progress. I bought it, but I ended up opening the gate it's linked to from the opposite direction, and never really needed it.

You do. Mild sploils ahead to boss names and locations to explain why

 

You need to kill vicar Amelia (i don't think she is optional).



And to go yar gull unseen vilage which is mandatory to enter in the nightmare of mensis

It's a waste of 10k echoes. I'd advise everyone to explore for another way to open it ;)

Hint, kill BSB, and then a door will open near a lamp. From that door head down. You'll uncover two new areas, the one furthest down will unlock a shortcut that will allow you to open that gate.

Thanks for the replies Zodiark & AB. Looks like I am off to Old Yarnham next time I play.

Which I may take another break from BB. I had NO CLUE the new Wolfenstein The New Blood comes out tomorrow. I preordered it off of + as soon as one could. I swore for some reason it did not come out until the end of the month. I am super excited to play it as I loved TNO. It is my easily my favorite FPS last year, and one of my favorite games of last year actually.

AB, have you finished all of the chalice dungeons?

 

What level were you when you defeated Queen Yharnam? I'm level 72, 1.2m souls, and trying to get an idea of how much of a bitch the last few chalices are going to be if I don't level.

Nah I haven't. That's all I need to do for my platinum. I'll be doing it at level 100 with 40 vitality.

      Alan Wake Remastered comparison trailer reveals significant visual upgrades
      by Asher Madan

      Today, Remedy Entertainment revealed a detailed comparison between Alan Wake Remastered and the original Xbox 360 version. As evidenced by the trailer posted below, the game not only receives higher resolution rendering, but also adds better textures, lighting, and advanced features like reflections.

      This is the first time the title will be available on PlayStation systems, with PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 getting the enhanced version. It's also coming to PC and Xbox. Luckily, the wait isn't too long because it's launching on October 5, 2021.

      Alan Wake focuses on the titular character as he battles shadow-like creatures using his flashlight — and guns — as weapons. The game is regarded as a cult classic nowadays and it's beloved on PC and Xbox platforms.

      Alan Wake Remastered features the base game and The Signal and The Writer story expansions. There's also going to be developer commentary track by the game's Creative Director Sam Lake.

      Best Buy to host PS5 and Xbox Series X buying event on Thursday
      by Asher Madan



      Even after a year, it's still very hard to find a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X. If you're in the United States, you'll get the chance to buy a PlayStation 5, PlayStation 5: Digital Edition, or an Xbox Series X in stores starting at 7:30 a.m. on September 23, 2021. It seems like consoles will be available in major metropolitan areas based on the list. Curiously, the Xbox Series S is absent from this event.

      Best Buy said the following about the in-store console event.

      Just head over to the Best Buy website to see if there's a store near you. Keep in mind that many of these stores don't open until 10 AM so you'll have to wait a good two-and-a-half hours to complete your purchase.

      Sony-owned Nextorage releases M.2 NVMe SSDs that can be used with the PS5
      by Karthik Mudaliar

      Nextorage, the Sony-owned subsidiary, has launched an SSD that can be used with the PlayStation 5. This comes a few days after Sony officially announced support for expansion through the M.2 solid state drive slot on the PS5. The new series of Nextorage NEM-PA PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 NVMe SSDs are available in both 1 TB and 2 TB capacities.

      The performance of the 2 TB unit is slightly higher than the 1 TB one. For the 2 TB unit, the sequential read/write speeds are up to 7,300/6,900 MB/s respectively while the random read/write speed can reach up to 1 million IOPS. As far as longevity is concerned, the 2 TB version is rated for 1,400 Terabytes Written (TBW). There is 2 GB of DDR4 RAM for caching needs.

      PS5-Compatible Sony SSD Sequential Read/Write

      Random Read/Write

      Endurance 2TB Nextorage NEM-PA

      7,300 / 6,900 MB/s

      1,000,000 / 1,000,000 IOPS

      1,400 TB

      1TB Nextorage NEM-PA

      7,300 / 6,000 MB/s

      750,000 / 1,000,000 IOPS

      700 TB

      The 1 TB unit offers a sequential read/write speed of up to 7,300/6,000 MB/s meanwhile the random read speed is rated at 750,000 IOPS and the write speed is the same as that of the 2 TB unit at 1 million IOPS. For longevity, the 1 TB unit is rated for 700 TBW.

      Both the units come with an aluminum heatsink. This is on par with Sony's requirements for installing the PS5's SSD. Once installed, players can use the expanded storage to download, copy and launch both PS4 and PS5 games as well as other media apps on the PlayStation 5. Players can also move games and apps freely between the internal and external storage options.
