Congrats. I'm still going in NG+, still pure melee with a bow sometimes. My time is higher than that, but I've been playing quite a lot of coop and did a lot of farming in NG. I will skip it anyway, as I don't need to go there, but today I entered Doors of Pharros area, and it's like I was invisible. Enemies did not see me, and I could not hit them. It's not very exciting anymore. But I'm too far in to quit, now.

I'm on my 3rd playthrough. SL270ish. At the Iron Keep right now. Going to try some more PvP for another day then finish the game off for good and get back to BF4.

Spent most of the day getting to Rank 2 in Bellkeepers. Now I'm trying to beat the Giant Lord with Benhart. It's really tough. I have found no video help either. Once I get the Benhart trophy, I can use a soul vessel, retool, then go an buy all the incantations I am missing, then burn an ascetic in Drangleic Castle to NG++ so I can purchase a couple more from Chancellor Wellager. And I need to invade Licia, too. Then I will be done, and the PS3 goes back into the closet. Been playing all day with near a million souls, because I am afraid to level up anymore.

The time I was able to defeat the Giant Lord with Benhart alive was by killing the 2 or 3 giants that are there super quick, while keeping the little guys still alive if possible. Benhart can kill those little guys but they keep him busy for a while and far away from the Giant Lord. Then I ran quickly to the Giant Lord and fought him from the upper stairway to the left of him. Pretty much near the time he's about dead was when Benhart came running over.

It was actually tough. Benhart just aggros across the rampart immediately, right into the fray. I used a greatbow to take out the giants (along with the fire). Then I had to wait for Benhart to get to the boss before advancing, or Benhart would always get rolled over. It was actually just luck to get to the boss area while Benhart still had more than a couple of stomps worth of health left. So I got that trophy, anyway.


Here's what is not clear to me. Will Chancellor Wellager sell those rare incantations, if you use an ascetic to make that area NG++? Or do you really have to play through NG++ to get there? And do you really need 3 million souls for it? I otherwise need a few spells here and there from Carhillon and Felkin and maybe Titchy and to invade Licia to get one from her. All I need are stupid spells I don't even use.

I'm not sure the ascetic will work, because I've seen nothing in any type of walkthrough/guide/roadmap that says it would and I doubt something that big would be overlooked. You would think if it did in fact work people would be all over it because it does save around 5-6 hours of speedrunning a 3rd playthrough. A part of me would tell you to try it because you really have to only make it through to the main entrance on your juiced up run. The other part of me says that the red phantom that shows up behind the 2 elephant guards would be hell on NG+++, but if you have a solid pattern down you may be ok.

For the souls, you would need 3 million SM for that playthrough only, not the carried over amount. That to me is a ridiculous amount, and would require a ton of phantom helping others kill their bosses.

On my 3rd playthrough the primal bonfires I lit (in order) were Rotten, Lost Sinner, Freija, and Iron King. Then I just ran through shrine of winter to the castle.

What I read now is that Wellager will sell them after beating Looking Glass Knight in NG++, but Kings Passage does not have a bonfire so far as I can tell, so I don't think you can boost that area with an ascetic. I wonder had I not traded in those boss souls, could I have unlocked the door without beating them again? Stupid, stupid...it would have been worth a try. I'm not very good at speedruns. Though I think I can avoid the Smelter Demon and Chariot, I had a lot of trouble with Rotten and Old Iron King in NG+.

No nothing works. Not ascetics. Not soul memory carryover. Nothing. I might quit. I'm not sure it's fun anymore. Just getting to the primal bosses is a nightmare, and I simply can't beat them easily with a fighter. I hate the Pit and Gutter and Gulch. I hate Cove of Tseldora. Iron keep will be in NG+++ for me.

If you're on during evenings shoot me a request and I'll try to help you run through. It would be a shame to get this far and not grab a plat for it.

Not quitting. Started NG++ with 2.5 million+ souls. Bought the rest of my merchant spells and stocked up on arrows first. Getting past the falconers was actually hard. Ended up on my last soul preserving ring. But now have the soul of the Rotten and am in the Bastille heading for the Sinner. Platinum before the weekend ends. I am afraid to use my souls, though. I still find summon signs now.

I'm at 302 right now and rarely find anyone anywhere besides the iron keep. I keep getting invaded but my GRS hits with 1307 dmg so if it lasts they are a joke. Finished The Looking Glass knight this morning. Have the Iron Keep left which I keep closed so the invaders have nowhere to run :-)

I don't know what I'm missing for the platinum but don't really care. Just want to know I made it through the 3rd playthrough with no help besides NPCs

That's pretty good. I'd don't know, maybe at that SL I could do it. The only bosses I have not beaten solo so far are the Smelter Demon and Nashandra, and Smelter is optional. Unfortunately, I did not learn until after I had beaten NG+ that the dark beacons Nashandra uses are destructible. Had I known that, I might have been able to beat her solo, too. Anyway, now I'm trying to be faster, and solo I'm pretty slow. I have only Freja left in NG++ to open the door, and I'm at the start of Tseldora. SL 238. SM 3.8 million.


Even at SL238 summon signs are scarce. I've been doing most stuff solo. Iron keep, as you say, still had a few. I wonder, if I might bet better off closer to 250 or more. Most of the help I find now are melee builds, like myself, so they are not complementary. Summon signs near Freja were scarce in NG+. I will probably have to do her alone with the NPC, like I did in NG+. Once that's done, though, I'm home free.


One of the patches gave some NPC's higher defense, which helped a lot.
