Been playing Elden Ring on and off today. Cleaned house at Carian Manor. Those hands can be such a pain. IF you're engaging them right, it's only tedious and not stressful. But it is high stress or take a lot of time. I ended up using the fire pot trick. Even in the ground, a pot will draw them out so they can't hit you wit the devastating grab. When they're out, being hit with another pot will make them catch on fire and lose a big chunk of health. They roll around for a few seconds, giving you time to approach and land a strong jump attack, killing them. I systematically cleaned out the courtyard. I had 36 Somber Smithing Stone [2]'s by the end of that. I also had ~14k runes to show for it.

Loretta is easy as long as you know when to mount-dodge. The perfumers outside got a better jump on me than her. The manor as a whole is way easier than the academy. The college has ganks so definitive and constricting that you know they are there and still can't avoid them, just brace and plan your reaction correctly. The manor really doesn't - even if it has a ton of ganks, they're all easily bypassed or dealt with cleanly by patience alone.

I also finished the Liurnia time-of-day bosses I left behind before.

There was a Deathbird northeast of the Academy Gate Town swamp ruin area. He gave me a lot of trouble. I beat him on my first go this time, and about had a heart attack. I had used all 6 potions allocated by the time I had the Deathbird down to having just a good hit or two remaining - and I fucked it up twice when one more blow would've killed ME. That one is a bit tough with all of the frost AOE stuff. He was eating me up with that stuff. Catching without the stamina to escape.

I also had to deal with the morning Bell Bearing Hunter at the Church of Vows. Those guys sometimes give me trouble just with their default moveset. I always forget the power of rolling forward with them. I had just spent my remaining runes so I finally took some time to work it out and ended up finally besting him by just a hair, like with the deathbird. And now I finally know how to dodge all of their moves easily. It really is about staying in the fray. If you get back into the range of the red magic-sword-rope-swinging attacks, everything is a lot harder and they rack up lots of damage with you having almost no chance to recover from their combos. Whereas rolling into the attacks at the right times often puts you behind him. I'm still powerstancing so I have that very nasty attack that pops right out of the roll, as well as quick nasty jump attacks. I think I got two criticals on him.

Liurnia is nothing to me at this point. I run towards the Giant Crayfish now. All I have left is the area past Carian Manor, and I can't remember if I took the secret Abductor Virgin teleport you can fall to from the academy into the little volcano dungeon. There is also that tower that you can only finish on Ranni's questline, as well as the cliffside ruins/caves that take you up to Altus Plateau. Other than that, I have done everything in Liurnia. The midgame areas of Caelid are next, I think.

I'm like level 74 and feeling like it's time to respec. I'm gonna go from powerstancing with the Moonveil and Uchigatana (even DEX/INT split) to using a staff with just the Moonveil (INT heavy with secondary DEX.) I'm about to get the Moonveil to B scaling with INT. I had kept both DEX and INT ~30 since I'm running this hybrid thing, but with investments in INT now, the damage can start running up big time with what I can use. I think I can drop DEX from 28 to 18 and throw that in INT. Pull a little out of END since I won't be carrying the weight of two kaytans. I think I have like 24 points in Mind, which I'll just keep. I feel like the 30 vigor I have is low for approaching level 75, though. I want to put it closer to 40 when I reallocate. I may actually still keep ~20 DEX for a little bit of casting speed and falling boost, as well as using the bow with good fire arrows to save FP, and keep my phsyical strike damage special-utility weapons. Definitely gotta start pivoting harder towards INT, though. I've got the sorceries and gear. Just need the power to use it and I think I'll have a fairly strong character on hand.


I think I got my first Larval Tear on the northeast end of friggin Limgrave... by accident. See, there's a cliff along that road to the bridge with that mad pumpkin... a random platform jutting out that you can fall to from the enemy camp up above. It looks like there's just another of the many zombie guys doing his digging in the general area there. There are actually a few little cliff platforms next to that road with zombies on em. The road forks where that cliff starts and goes to a camp with Godrick's knights...

...but one particular cliff there hides an invisible Runebear that only appears when you land on it! That's a *HELL* of a thing to find there! It could be the first one you encounter in the game if you're very, very unlucky lol. You'll be super low-level, and it will literally be right on top of you with nowhere to go but down. But he drops a Larval Tear. I was such a low level and I barely survived. But of course one of the worst Runebear ganks is one of the few with a really GOOD reward. :laugh:

Wellllpp...back to playing Conan Exiles to try out the new Sorcery DLC. So far, its been a disappointment. You have to collect scrolls and they are spread out all over the map, lots and lots of travel, not a fan of this amount of travel. One good side is that you cant farm the scrolls from the same place. One bad side is that its useless for combat until you gather about half the spells (scrolls) when you can begin summoning pets/thralls. Another thing is the mechanics of it, you have to select from a menu (of sorts) by aiming the cross-hair at a rune to get to the next menu which might or might not be spells list, the problem and that its a very slow process that could be sped up if they assigned hotkeys to each menu/list.

Taking it slow in Elden Ring today. I started by actually doing Fringefolk Hero's Grave (the place accessed with two stonesword keys right after the training cave at the start of the game.) Easy to forget that one. It sucks, too. That chariot is a pain in the ass... though you can kill it if you drop to the left gap when the path becomes a narrower bridge, and take the path back up to where you can eventually shoot some exploding pots that fall on top of it.) It's just that along that same route, is a double-ambush of grafted scions. One can actually be spotted on the ceiling though. I just figured that out. It was handy to get a few arrows in and agro just one at a time. They're not bad on their own. They're bad when there's two, you can't summon, and there are a ton of edges to fall off of. Hurry across the bridge after dropping the fits so you don't have to fight the next one there. The pew/altar area gives you some room to dodge. He jumps through the hole in the ceiling as you approach the loot in the center.

Going all the way down the big slopes and dodging the chariot/fighting the hero ghosties instead of taking the secret drop-down route, takes you to an Ulcerated Tree Spirit. I was silly and called my Jellyfish (upgraded a few times, it becomes really tanky and draws slow, but steady agro with its poison shots, while also being immune to attacks spreading on the ground - incredibly useful.) The problem is, the thing just moves like crazy bouncing between targeting. I kept getting smacked, not reading the timings right. The tree spirits look and move a bit like Wraiths, but there's actually only a few little moments when they can actually nail you. I had a very easy time going without the summon. You can speed it up by jump-dodging into heavy jump-attacks, set up crits. It's tanky and moves a lot. That's about it.

It's all worth doing. The Tree Spirit drops a GOLDEN SEED and 15K RUNES. The alternate route with Scions nets you and Erdtree's Favor talisman (which I'm actually using for my build.) Finishing the Scion route and killing the chariot nets you a good chunk more runes, and an Erdtree Greatbow, which I believe is a holy giant bow. That thing, I doubt is great but the other rewards are killer.

After that, I went and joined with Ranni. Gonna talk to Selvius and get the potion. I'm going to just give it to the Dung Eater later. Finish the quests with the other related characters in that little quest cloud. I forgot that Ranni's questline takes you to Soifra, which is actually perfect.


Now, at level 76, I've respecced to carry a staff on the left and the Moonveil on the right. Things are starting to come together.
Elden Ring Screenshot 2022.11.27 - 21.17.27.09.png

- DEX was taken to 18, the minimum to equip the MoonveiI. I've decided that I want to get INT to a good level for better sorceries and good base damage to scale the katana, and the I can add some DEX to speed things up.
- I also dropped my END from like 24 to 18, to keep some good armor and carry some range of gear/tools. I might've been able to do with a point or two less, but I do need stamina, too.
- I want to have 40 Vigor by level 81, 35 is good - it's already more HP than I can heal and I will have enough tears to add more capacity by level 81.
- After that, I'll focus on getting my INT up to a virtual 52 so I can utilize Azur's Glintstone Staff and its fast casting speed. Right now it's actually at 36, getting a +6 INT boost from the Double Burger Wizard King Crown in exchange for a little slice of HP and stamina. With that, I can equip the Azur Staff by level 91.
- Obviously I keep mind at the 20 it was at before, because I'm now using Moonveil a bit more for its sick AoW and also casting on top. I'll need more FP.

I'm basically focusing on getting a little more in HP, and then hitting magic power hard before gathering more FP and sliding up a little DEX for bigger, slower spells.

Here's the gear setup:
Elden Ring Screenshot 2022.11.27 - 21.17.17.23.png

I figure the Carian Knight's Set is most suitable. I also just think it looks cool with the ornate leather embroidery and chains with that regal blue coat and fine steel armor. The Twinsage Crown is hideous, but extremely practical for the big INT boost. The Carian Glintblade Staff is the best I have right now, and has the bonus of boosting my Glintblade sorceries. Unfortunately I am snagged on upgrading it. I need 12 Smithing Stone [3]'s to help the scaling. But I'll have those soon enough. For now, it's doing great damage.

As far as talismans go, I use the Erdtree's Favor and Cerulean Medallion for the FP boosts, and then the Carian Filigreed Crest to reduce FP cost for everything.

All in all, a decent melee/caster hybrid thus far. We'll see how I come out of Soifra's underground areas.

the Hunter: Call of the Wild. Definitely a MP component to this game I haven't checked out yet.

Think hours of wandering in the wild being as quiet as possible with nothing happening. Very little shooting and just enough structure to make you travel around. Then with no warning in pitch dark carrying a tiny underpowered gun...

They sure make photo mode fun. The game isn't half-bad either. :p I'd say 80% Pixar Movie, 20% Souls-ish

Oh Kena, such a rare sight around here.
Loved that game to its bits, beautiful scenery/cute main char and fun gameplay tho the late boss fights can be challenging but its doable.
I had the game pre ordered and not a single regret, with the free update and NG+ I will definitely play it again one day.

I'm looking forward to playing Kena someday, I'm playing Dishonored 1, 2, and then Death of the Outsider after I finish 2.

I never gave the Dishonored franchise its proper due, even though I loved the original game, I never even got halfway. Got distracted by something else.

Hoping to do a story completion of the entire Dishonored franchise over the coming few weeks.

Can't decide if I want use a xbox controller or keyboard/mouse for these games...

Dishonored is possibly an underrated game, I've played the first game and its expansions and damn its a good game and I plan on playing Dishonored 2 too one day.

I've played the game with keyboard+mouse tho thats normal for me cause its what I grew up on.
Controller is only for fighting games and walking simulators for me.

Dishonored is possibly an underrated game, I've played the first game and its expansions and damn its a good game and I plan on playing Dishonored 2 too one day.

I've played the game with keyboard+mouse tho thats normal for me cause its what I grew up on.
Controller is only for fighting games and walking simulators for me.

since Dishonored is first person game, i probably will opt for mouse and keyboard.

its really only games like assassins creed odyssey i will want to do controller with.

I think Fatshark hit the nail on the head with WH40K especially the atmosphere of it. Amazing visual details to this game that draws you into the environment.

Yeah, its a treat :) I get a strong Mordheim vibe from the whole warband idea too, more so than I had with Vermintide, I think a big part of that is the fact you can now have the same class more often and of course the Ogryn class :D That bloke is fat tho. Annoying as hell, he's always in the way, but even that just adds to the suspense lol. I rolled a Veteran so I'm basically losing half my accuracy score on that dude.

The gun handling though... holy crap its good. The lasgun is my first favorite for now. Single shot hitscan combat, its fantastic, especially with a clip of 69+ shots... They also absolutely nailed the audio.
