Namco Bandai Games have finally released the much-anticipated 1.05 patch update for Dark Souls on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in Europe and North America.
About freaking time! Now hopefully those Fog ring and TWoP users can stop being so freaking lame. Two extremely (although completely legal,) tactics. I don't get where the fun in that is though. The best fights are when two people are on level ground, then skill is what makes the difference, not some cheap spell or ring. Now though they won't be so overpowered.
OH GAWD! I'm so far behind! Please tell me it gets easier after the Undead Burg! LOL. just kidding... but seriously, what is this "fog ring" you speak of?
Cannot be locked onto. It was super gay.
THE RING OF FOG HAS FALLEN!!!!! :D
Nice, sounds like a substantial update.
cool! going to play it tomorrow or Thursday! going to finish my 3rd play-through..
"Pyromancers in Catacombs drop Skull Lanterns." This is the worst seriously, I've killed all of them in the level and I haven't got a single lantern which makes going into the Tomb of the Giants impossible.
Buy the cast light spell or get the maggot h4ead from the sister of quazaleth(Spelling) and you wont need that. I never used that lantern for anything but getting the ring
FINALLY! Now I can start playing again. Wait... I'm having flashbacks to dying repeatedly at the hands of trash... things lurking in the shadows... walking around a corner and me getting destroyed... Oh yeah, thats me playing MW3.
its time for me to get back too! I was fed up to not able to co-op normally, and no souls signs anywhere... YaY! hopefully it was worth the wait!
LOL ahhhh not just me:p
damnit! i was hoping they wouldn't fix the dragon head glitch. ah, shit.
In a purely single player sense, it is useful and I honestly believe more of a homage to classic "cheat codes" than a "game breaking glitch" It was ruining PvP though.
Awesome... I hope this makes the game more enjoyable for everyone who was frustrated with many of the aspects this changes. Question: Can you play the game offline without getting the patch? I would assume you could...
Yes u can. There is no way i am giving up dragonhead glitch. Im a level 498...
Yeah I'm not sure what I want to do in this case. Tho I pretty much never play pvp, so I guess offline it is for me xD
lol yeah I love that glitch it saved me so much time and frustration!
Nooooooooooooo!!! I just turned my 360, booted up Dark Souls and got my dragon head nerfed!! Looks like I will be uninstalling this update so I can continue to rape the game bloody. This glitch made the game so much more fun(after hours of getting my ass handed to me) and I'm almost finished my 1st playthrough. After 50 hours of trail and error, success and failure, I welcomed the dragon head glitch and it's copious amount of souls with open arms. I don't plan on staying offline tho, I'm interested in the PvP aspect and helping others who didn't exploit the glitch. Plus, some of those updates are much needed like the Twinkling slabs or whatever.
I already platinumed this game so im pretty much done playing... but that ring of fog was stupid!
the pvp is the biggest joke to the game, they should of disabled the ability to invade other peoples worlds without permission, and only with permission.
Pvp would be almost non-existent then.
it wouldn't be called "invade" now then would it? It would be like come over and we'll have battle fun-time or something.
It'd be ... let's have a tea party... I'll bring the crumpets.
the patch can suck my 12' dick now that i cant use the dragonhead glitch.
Praise the sun!
Yes! Time to jump back into dark souls. Stoked.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Ha-lle-e-lu-jah!
NOT HAPPY! Cystal ring shield L2 attack has gone from being super powerful to being totally rubbish and not worth having (unless I'm missing something somewhere). Grrrr! :(
Out of anything they nerfed I wish they hadn't done the ring shield... that thing got my butt through Lost Izalith when I had to kill those dragon's leg monsters. Otherwise they'd just stomp the p!$$ out of me.
I'm on my 2nd play through now and not looking forward to Lost Izalith, gonna very hard without that shields help. Before the patch I could do approx. 1,500 per shot using a Fire Greatsword +5, but now it's capped at about 250. What's the point of having that shield now? None, apart from getting the "acquire all unique weapons" trophy. Suppose I'll have to become a much better player and change how I play. Swings and round-abouts :)
4 Cracked Red Eye orbs... 5 attempts... 4 invasions! YEAH! Most on the first try too! Only problem was I'm level 25ish and somehow I invaded someone wearing Black Knight Armor =/ <- Happy Camper
that sucks (Black Knight Armor). I can't wait to get back in this game now that the patch has been dropped.
It is very nice. Was also able to summon someone on the very first try to fight the Gaping Dragon.
