Kotaku: I want to take this opportunity to talk about Dark Souls. And since you've probably heard its praises sung a thousand times over, I'm going to instead talk about everything that could be done better in Dark Souls II.
There are of course a couple of things that can be addressed, such as adding servers but Dark Souls enhanced a lot of what Demon's Souls couldn't. The only thing I want fixed is the pyroromancy level up system! Hear me out before you come at me with torches and pitchforks... In Dark Souls, I am given the option to start off as a Pyromaniac Pyromancer or a lvl 1 character that eventually get the option to get pyromancer abilities. The abilities are awesome and work fine, but there is one exploit that really pisses me OFF! Not so much because it effects me personally, but it really turns off other players from playing once they find out what it is. I am able to coast through most of the early boos fights at lvl 1 and actually start reaching some pretty tough areas that most people would get to at a much higher lvl. This is fine but the problem with Pyromancy is that your able to MAX it out even if your lvl 1, which only becomes a problem when low lvl characters with powerful, powerful, POWERFUL, Pyromancy skills, are trolling low lvl people with basic spells and/or amour and weapons, in the beginning stages, killing them and taking their hard earned humanity and souls. I've encountered this once and really didn't mind it but other players I know personally wanted to stop right then and there, until I told them what happened. Though this may be a minor complaint it is a big issue for some and I for one dislike anyone who does this for the simple fact that it turns other gamers off to this game. I don't understand why people still do this when there is a full MP mode available now with the Artorias of the Abyss DLC. I guess it is what it is and the people that do this need to realize that they are ruining the game for some people!
