Question for those who have done it, how did y'all go about the motu-patlu boss fight? One look at those two hooded creeps and I knew i wouldn't be able to do it without Bernahl summon :P

Also had to bring out the mimic tear, tiche was useless this fight

 

 

 

This was bugged for me. I died and then suddenly my mimic got a 30k dps on the boss killing him immediately.

Guess I'm overleveled now, went up against Shardbearer Mohg , promptly disposed off him into second phase with mohg's shackle and then the mimic tear killed him( good because it's cancer in 2nd phase every swing of the spear sprays blood fire across the arena ).

Mohg is comedy because you can still beat his a*s while he does NIHIL x3

 

Then fought Godfrey who was kicking my a*s left right and center with his earthquake stomp aoe and axe swings, had to summon Nepheli aside from my mimic :rofl:

which actually sucked because once he went to second phase as Hoarah Loux both killed him :(

 

Anyway now I'm sure Malenia will balance out my over-leveled char

Or Dragonlord Placidusax

Bosses didn't gave too much problem to me either. Perhaps when you are close to end, you play a bit better.

 

Dragonlord is in same category.

 

Malenia will need some time though, till you learn how to dodge her powerful attacks.

replicated this video somewhat but didn't have the needed buffs/talismans so wasn't able to 1 shot him, yet it got him to like 15% HP with both summons dispatched.

The AI is dumb here so everyone just rushes into your death beam, unlike Radahn or Astel where you get shot by a arrow or laser the first time you walk in.

 

Completed Niall, no cheese and pants-less finally. Had to use the dummy though.

 

Quite split between continuing with the current build or respec-ing. Health wise I'm just getting one or two shotted now and barely even doing as much damage to be a glass canon.

What is your current build? quality?

You may consider switching to int + dex or fth + str, you can then use elemental buffs on normal weapons, or do some kind of tower shield and spear build, or dual wield GS, or dual wield katanas.

for int + dex you can do moonveil and uchigatana with cold infusion and hoarfrost stomp skill, for int + str you can dw helphen's steeple GS and moonlit GS or dw Starscourge GS.

 

I wouldn't recommend going full int or fth caster because the bosses will one or two shot you before you can cast solo, so you'll have to use spirit ash + summons if available.

 

I am personally going to switch to str + fth once i'm done with Malenia

I want to stay melee and be able to use the fancy attacks that all these fights have. Just got the Rivers of Blood Katana which looks interesting too.

 

Don't have a specific build at the moment. I think it's 40 vigor, 50 strength, Dex is in the high 30s I think. Rest is just allocated here and there.

 

Will check out a couple of in-action build videos of the ones you mentioned, thanks.

Choose a weapon then respec fully to that weapon. Your level shouldn't have problem in dealing damage at least. 

 

Weapon you are using is Dex focused if I remember correctly. 50 points in strength is useless for it. Transfer 30 points in Dex from strength and that will solve problem you are having.

If you've decided on any weapon to stick with( like you'll upgrade it all the way) check the weapons fextra life page, it will show you what stat of the weapons gives good scaling S, A, B are good, and then pour points into that stat for most dps benefit

For flashy melee moves you can check out the greatwords, there is this one ash of war called lion's claw, many others also that have flashy moves

You can try colossal weaons also if your str only, most of them have unique weapon arts/skills

Planning to get this. Can anyone recommend between ps5 and pc? I want to get it on pc but I’m hearing optimisation issues and locked frame rate. Did they fix it ? There is no dlss/fsr ?

No DLSS, if you use RivaTuner/MSI AFB for the overlay that shows your FPS and all that tanks framerate.

Otherwise only optimization issue I faced later on is the fight vs Dragon Fortissax, because the dragon is covered in red lightning and does lightning attacks every 5 seconds, idk if it's optimization or my gpu can't handle it.

Buy on PC, it's cheaper, just 2.5k.

Also yes it's still 60 fps afaik, doesn't make a difference to me, i have a potato 1080 60fps monitor.

 

set grass and volumetric quality to medium if you're having issues.

I personally have the ps5 version and it works ok. I didn’t get pc version at launch because it had performance issue back then. 
 

But the problem of pc version has been resolved since with numerous patches. And PC version is no brainer now because of the price, 2499 in steam.
 

Console version costs more and even the performance is not satisfactory (for me atleast)… there are frame drops in ps5 performance mode even. 
 

you have 3080. Get PC version.

Thanks ! I was reading that there are some tools/mods that can help unlock frame rate. Wondering if that’s bannable or I should be ok ?

Per one of these framerate unlocker pages, you have to disable EasyAntiCheat to use the mods, which makes your game run in offline mode by default

i.e no "finger but hole" "liar ahead" etc messages

many times these messages are helpful like they tell you if some mook(s) will ambush you from a corner ahead or stuff like that.

 

TLDR you won't get banned because you can't play online with the mod

PS5 version is much better now as VRR range is 48-60fps & it remains in that range 99% of the time. 
 

Sometime in distant future I might have you :censored:

No need to mod it. 
 

just play at locked 60 fps. You won’t be compromising the online features. Plus it’s gonna be rocksolid stable frames on your pc. 
 

And pc version is graphically superior. Just play with a gamepad and not mouse/keyboard.

my level 152 makes jack f**king squat difference to Malenia, tried going solo but barely manage to get hp to less than 75% and waterfowl dance gets me, if not that it's the one attack where she rushes towards you and does like 3 slashes, it's a one shot, and even somehow if you survive that she does some big slash attack that will get you.

 

Tiche does decent damage but can't hold aggro, and my mimic holds aggro and hits like a truck but gets shredded by Malenia in 2nd phase

 

Malenia is the ultimate counter to all spirit ash, npc summons( there aren't any here :rofl: ) and using cheesy weapons/spells :majesty:

 

I've noticed she gets staggered quite easily on hits, but too much of a coward to lay into her with the L1, she does these big side hops and all, prolly will get behind me :(

 

Looks like i'll have to git gud with this one

 

if anyone wants to know i'm using moonveil +10 main hand and hoarfrost stomp cold uchi +25 offhand because i read frostbite and bleed are effective against her
