So I've been playing Dark Souls 3, and earlier on I finally made it to Irithyll... even took a screenshot of my character cheering lol. So far I'm still conflicted as to where I'd place the game amongst the other Soulsborne games though. I'm still absolutely having fun with it, but I've had a few silly deaths simply because the combat and movement don't really mix well with each other. We've got the faster combat (Enemies especially!) of Bloodborne, but the clunky movement and rolling of Souls, so some bosses and enemies can feel a little unfair at times.
That being said, I've been sticking with my build, which is basically using Sellsword Twinblades, with the Old Wolf Curved Sword on my back and the Pontiff Left Eye ring, so I'm hardly using estus flasks unless it's a boss, since both those items recover health on hit, and if they both proc at the same time, they sort of overlap and shit themselves and it gives you a full heal rather than just healing 30HP (Ring) or 120HP (Sword) and it's just so fucking ridiculous and broken but I love it! The best part? Since I'm dual wielding swords, each hit counts as two, meaning after just pressing L1 four times I'll have had both items proc, and if I time my hits right I'll be "rewarded" with a full heal, lol. The OWCS also increases your damage per hit after so many consecutive hits, so that's helping out too.
I'm just sad that, unless I want to dive into the DLC right now (Not really) I can't upgrade my weapons any higher, currently at +7, but with an AR of 302 on a DEX weapon that attacks as fast as these swords do, and enough stamina that I can do six L1's in a row with enough left over to roll out... yeeeaaah, I'm hitting like a fucking truck and I love it!
Here's the screenshot because why not, Irithyll is really pretty to look at from here, so far it's actually tied for my favourite vista, along with Yharnam.
PS. Yes I'm using the Black Leather armour... it doesn't look as nice on Dark Souls 3 as it does on the original, but in the first game it was always my go-to armour for keeping things light, so I decided to keep the tradition going because let's face it... armour means fuck all when you're not getting hit, lol.
