I fucking hate Royal Rat Vanguard. Probably the most annoying boss so far in Dark Souls 2.
I tried Dark Souls 1 once. In my first try I was a total noob and thought the knight was the easiest class in the game. Maybe it was, but it was so boring and his movements made me drop the game.
So some days ago I started again, as a wanderer... and damn, it was fun. I didn't realise how fun the game is and how different each class plays in the first parts of the game (and how fair the game becomes once you have the proper equipment). I stopped playing with that character though, picked a pyro and now I just hit one of the 2 bells in the first part of the game (yeah, I just started, lol). I was also lucky enough to pick a black knight sword so I'm just melting my way through the game. Sadly I forgot my joystick in town so no gaming this weekend
Yeah, you kind of HAVE to follow guides to play the game the most optimally. Took me like 20 tries to kill Havel.
I picked Knight as well...though I'm not really sure why. Right now I'm back at the Undead Asylum and can't kill the Stray Demon. Haven't played in a week or so, too frustrating.
People tend to pick Knight because of the big armour set, BUT the biggest advantage when you start as a knight is your shield, it has a decent stability for a starting shield.
Warrior is pretty good if you want to go for a quality build, but the armour is terrible if you like to have a high poise/phys defence.
After finishing the game 10 times, I finally started my true challenge run on dark souls: no controller, everything with the keyboard and the mouse. It's surprisingly easy after a few hours to get the handle of it.
And the point? The glory!
I saw multiple guides say that it doesn't really matter which class you pick in the beginning. They have some fringe benefits, but you can really do anything you want as far as leveling up.
While in Dark Souls PTDE, there is a level cap set by the players if you want to play with other players, around level 120-145, then your beginning class comes into play, because if you have 11 levels in faith and intelligence but you don't want to use any spells, then it may be more interesting to start with less Int an Fth.
But then it's all about the meta and the level caps determined by the players.
Well I kinda expecting that answer but my point is, for some reason I just don't see that it is necessary for DS to have so many classes yet they're kinda similar to each other except on very early levels.
Oh, I know some of the guys here like DS more than DS 2, but honestly I like DS 2 more; sure some changes to the mechanics can be annoying but the world is much superior IMHO. Moreover, I think DS 2 is more accessible to beginner players, simply because the bosses difficulty curve is not steadily going up, instead sometimes they throw easy bosses here and there.
Hmm, well when I said "more accessible" of course I compared it to Demon's Souls/Dark Souls, rather than most games in general. For example, I think the tutorial part of DS 2 is much less intimidating compared to DS when you are just immediately confronted with the first boss.
