Dark souls by Dread555 Dark souls by Dread555
Just a little something silly that I wanted to whip up.

I've been a bit crazy with the game Dark Souls recently. Actually, more than recently, for about a month now lol.

It's a great game, not much I can say about it here besides it's challenging and the story/world enthralls me. I recommend it, but prepare for frustration (especially if you get the PC port, in which case I recommend getting a gamepad with it, since the PC version was terrible ported, and screwed up the mouse and keyboard controls).

Anyways, PVP in the game can get rather barbaric, and some builds that players use are insanely cheap. The armor/mask/sword that I drew this guy with was suggested to me by a friend, apparently it's one of the most used of the cheesy builds.

Humanity is what players earn when they kill each other.

EDIT: forgot to say, the "stab" part comes from how players backstab their targets as much as they can, which is a critical hit that can almost 1 shot someone.

ok yeah, I killed 2 assholes invading me for humanity.
so I was like YEAH what do I get? Souls? an item?
....
(1 humantiy is added)
ALSKDJ 1 HUMANITY
1 FREAKING HUMANITY
I TRIP OVER THOSE ON MY WAY TO THE POTTY (lol the depths)

so you mean to tell ME that you want to disturb ME on the way to the BOSS ROOM so that you can rob ME of my 1 lousy humanity when you can spend as much time in the DEPTHS farming rats for 10 MINUTES for 30!

Hell I almost feel sorry for the buggers, I just drop my farmed 10 humanity to the efer just to leave me alone.

the build hasn't really been viable for a long time since the dark wood grain ring had been nerfed, even before I drew this picture. 

Most people use the build just as a joke now.

God i love it! lmao. I just started playing darksouls (late to the party) and loving the FFFUU out of it. Didn't quite think Zwei was used in PvP all that much considering how slow it is o-o i use it for PvE

Dread555 Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2013
the zweihander, and similar large weapons, are effective in PVP because of their stunlocking potential, where getting just a few hits in will keep the opponent staggered as they take huge amounts of damage. the zwei is especially effective due to it being one of the fastest of the great swords, while still having that poise draining capability.

Course, just swinging with these weapons wildly leaves you entirely open to counter attack, so you have to practice great timing and precision.

doomslace Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2013
I see... Makes sense, considering how easily it screws with mobs. 
But when I have done pvp I've only been able to deal with certain people, others I just got blocked and then stuck in the animation and stabbed in the back. Could be I'm just not the greatest though. Lol. Thanks for the info though :3
