    'Disabling' the teleporter by just moving the spawn point upwards 50ft is genius.

      I think it would be even better if you could survive it with an item to reduce fall damage, but to also gate fall damage reduction too late in the game for it to be useful.

    For something that claims to be unfair and impossible, the mod dev grants a LOT of concessions to the player, including even allowing the player to have the same tripling of projectiles. Quite gracious of them!

    When you killed one of the draconic tree sentinels, I picked up this really passive-aggressive vibe coming from the other sentinel who just stared resolutely the other way when his companion is getting murdered. "Shouldn't have talked shit about me in that party, Greg."

    This is the first real breakdown I've heard of the mod and based on the design I'm really surprised Renalla had the second half of the Dectus medallion. I'd have shoved it deep into Siofra River after a souped up astral elk fight and just laughed at the poor people who assumed the second half was with the demigods at all.

      But what if... you combined this mod with the sekiro mod? It could be possible, Sekiros movement speed when sprinting is extremely fast, fast enough to dodge most attacks, his offensive options are quick and deal a ton of damage, plus you can use parry and dodge to avoid getting hit.

    26:26 ok as a person who did some primordial-level digging around the game code the comet azur beams are actually projectiles. How comet azur works in this game is that the initial shot shoots a single emitter projectile that emits one segment of comet azur. Then, that segment of comet azur emits another segment of comet azur, repeating until it hits a part of the map with collision and stops. What the mod creator probably did was to triple the base emitter projectile and have them set at an angle.

      @TheSletchman That's why I'm waiting for mods like "The Convergence" which are basically that.
      For those who don't know, "The Convergence" is a Dark Souls 3 mod that's basically "okay, but what if all those spells had their own school and were actually worth a damn" and it delivers not just that, it introduces some extra spells along with it. Each great school (Sorcery, Miracle, Pyromancy) is split into four minor schools, each dealing with four of the five damage types each. For example, Pyromancy/Now called Conjuration is now fire themed Pyromancy (duh), dark and frost based Cryomancy, physical and poison based Geomancy (rocks), and the completely new magic and summon based Druidism (where magic comes in two variants: nature, like trees or water, and essence, which is best described as Blackflame before Blackflame was a thing, only not percent-based, but stat and spell dependant.) Miracles are the physical and healing based Holy Miracles, the lightning- based Gwyn miracles, the dark and bleed based Deep Miracles, and the magic, summon and debuff based Necromancies. Finally, Sorceries are the magic Crystal Sorceries, the lightning based Light Sorceries of Oolacile, the physical Aeromancies of Forossa, and the dark bases Hexes.
      As for why I'm waiting for it, the developers have already stated that they plan on creating another Convergence mod for Elden Ring.

    I made it through a good chunk of the significantly changed current version of the mod before today's game update corrupted my save, so I came here to see what the rest of the mod looked like.
    And I gotta say, holy shit mage looks so easy. Playing a melee character was pretty hellish before I was able to beat Godrick and open the game up. The black flame damage basically every boss does is insane and a major nerf to shields (although shields break the game in vanilla so I see the mod maker's point). I bet things would have started falling into place once I found bloodhound step, however, as long as it wasn't majorly nerfed or anything.

    Given the buff to the Ritual Sword Talisman, I'm surprised he didn't use Ritual Shield too. My Damage Resist never falls below 50% on every source of damage due to that. With buffs, I can get certain other damage resist types up to around the 70-80% range.

    • MagiV

      @Senou Natsuru so a super end game boss that forces you to learn that she plays by and punishes what we consider conventional rules of the game
      Though stuff like her armoring out of staggers is fairly consistent i you arent trying to smack her when shes doing her attacks
      Unless you have incredibly heavy stagger, you’re not supposed to go after her during her combos regularly
      And again, shes supposed o be one if the hardest available fights in the game
      And one of the more interesting ways to do that that not just boring number inflation or speed in an already lightning fast game is to make her challenge what we consider to be the “rules” of boss fights in the game

    • Senou Natsuru
      Senou Natsuru Před měsícem

      @MagiV It's not the difficulty. It's the bullshit and behavior inconsistent with everything else in the game. Every attack that can immediately end your fight, against other bosses, has a clear way to dodge it that is fairly intuitive. WF is just "Lol you're dead unless you dodge this in a very specific manner or cheese it." She also literally ignores stance breaks if she's in a hyper armor state, something no other boss or enemy does. She can cancel her own swings to block an attack meant to punish a slower one from her, she can *ANIMATION CANCEL OUT OF LIGHT STAGGERS* and she can string hyper armor moves back to back. Breaking most rules the game lays out for you. The ONLY one she doesn't break is that bleed and frostbite always stagger.

      @Jordan Kohler The mod devs could have access to the Miyazaki himself, is there any proof that he's worked on it? Nope, and it's very easy to dismiss an argument without evidence.
      The mod is being updated, (i.e. 5% can't be consistent, especially after nerfing/changing the last boss) 1000+ comments on their page don't mention it once, (thx ctrl+G) assuming 95% failing means they're not good enough is extremely silly, (people might not like it, forget about it, prefer to do something else, etc.) and there's no poll/survey/software mentioned.
      So, thinking about where that number comes from (the moon?) and it's meaning relative to gameplay changes, (it has little/no meaning) it's very safe to assume the number was fabricated. 95% of humanity agrees 🙃

      @redxpen I understand what you mean. I too played DS3 a ton more. But you gotta realise, this game is far from dead. It is a predominantly singleplayer game. It is half a year old, and still gains hundreds of thousands to millions of views on every new discovery, meme, challenge run, etc from any different content creators, many of which have far fewer subs than those views suggest.
      The average playtime of an Elden Ring player is about 150+ hours according to every poll I've seen. 150 Hours. Compare that to the GOTY from 2010-2020, The Last Of Us, which was around 16 hours. I think that's pretty fucking respectable, especially since 300+ hours was still 30% of players.
      Honestly, for a mostly single player game, this is about as long as I've seen one last, definitely so if we go by hours played. Part of the reason DS3 felt more satisfying to play through is because it didn't take nearly as long to complete. By the time you got to the end, you actually only just began thirsting for more, making NG+ or new characters exciting. Elden Ring condensed that experience into its first playthrough. It was past the 30 hour mark that I began enjoying it the most, and that lasted all the way until I completed it at 164 hours, having thoroughly explored and killed damn near every last boss and mini boss without guides.

      It’s one of the highest rated games of all time and sold more copies than the last 3 Fromsoft games combined. If you don’t like it, that’s fine. Not every game is for every person. But saying it’s bad or mediocre is fucking silly. Elden ring is damn good. The pvp needs balancing but the pve experience which 99% of players stick to exclusively is top tier.

    You keep saying you're not "that good" at Elden Ring in these videos but you possess an extreme amount of knowledge about all the different items, gear, spells, etc. and how these work together and can be used to solve specific problems. And in a game like this I think knowledge and problem solving skills can be just as important as sheer reflexes. So honestly, I'd say you're very good at it, just in a different way than someone who can do a no damage run for example.

    One of the few things I've always hated about From Soft games is the lack of natural mana regeneration. It makes magic builds feel much more restricted, in that you can't just kill every enemy on the way to the boss without resorting to non-magical means like the Moonlight Greatsword, or you won't have enough mana left for the boss itself.
    It's nice to see a mod that addresses this.

      @Hannah H That's just a melee build with extra steps. Like yeah it gets the job done, but maybe I didn't want to use melee weapons for this character, since I've used them for the last two.
      It's not that magic is underpowered; sorcery certainly isn't, although incantations aren't quite as strong. It's more that magic isn't viable as your main way of talking down non boss enemies because of the restriction on number of casts imposed by having a limited mana pool.

      Most of the additional enemies and status effects seem to be completely random too. I'm sure this mod took a lot of work but I kinda doubt the creator put a lot of thought into it.

    • Dont Misunderstand
      Dont Misunderstand Před 3 měsíci

      @Quickestturtlez Levels in Elden Ring are just barriers to entry for specific builds. The fact that you're saying that him being in the mid 200s level without grinding "tells me all I need to know" tells me that you don't actually understand Elden Ring enough to form accurate conclusions about balance changes. Just as an example, Sorcery builds in vanilla aren't even usable in combat until level 40 after a trip around the entire world to gather seeds and tears. And they don't become strong enough to fight outside of Limgrave until around level 80. And all the while, they haven't put a single point into any defensive or utility stats. Compare that to a melee build, who at the same level already has their weapon stats, along with 30 in both vitality and endurance, meaning they can take 7x more damage before they need to heal, and has 10 crimson flasks to the 2 or 3 that a sorcerer can justify at level 80, solely because sorcerers are REQUIRED to sacrifice healing in exchange for the ability to deal damage at all.
      The mod is poorly executed, but your reasoning proves that you have no clue what you're talking about.

    the mod creator knew what he was doing by making all those buffs add up to 69% magic damage increase

  • Arkios
    Arkios Před 3 měsíci +504

    The "below half health buff" is (Edit: PROBABLY, might be done completely different, Edit2: probably a modified BTSR/RTSR) a generic function in the games' code that has the basic function of "Is the target below 55% health? If yes, start hyped up music". So, the reason why every enemy gets a phase two, is because it is ridiculously easy to do.
    Also, disabling the respawn on boss adds is even easier to do, so it's kind of weird that they DO respawn; it's not really harder with them there, just more annoying. (If the buff IS really just RTSR/BTSR modified, then this mod doesn't use modified scripts, meaning it actually couldn't include the respawn disabling easily. Also, it would make adding that buff even easier, I guess, so it's probably done that way.)

      @King Gecko You see, THAT'S probably why those enemies respawn, because those effects don't need any scripting and could even be modified to be way stronger for specific enemies... yeah, I guess this mod doesn't actually do any script changes then, so the way it is set up is only through Param edits; which doesn't go into respawning mechanics.

    • King Gecko
      King Gecko Před 3 měsíci +1

      Also a thing they did for most ascended mods for dark souls games they added the ring effect to the bosses that at low health you have more resistances

    • Arkios
      Arkios Před 3 měsíci +11

      ​@russeshe001 The boss isn't actually "bound" to the boss room, though, it's the other way around. As long as the flag for "boss_killed" hasn't been set, fog gates appear, the boss spawns, etc.
      All bosses are, initially, respawning. But in the code for loading the area it is checked if the flag has been triggered, and if it has the boss is disabled and killed every single time the area is reloaded. You can just include those additional enemies' IDs in that code and they ALSO wouldn't respawn after the boss is dead.
      And since the "low health buff" function likely uses the "low health music change" function, which requires an entity ID and is executed as part of the map script, the IDs for those enemies already exist and are used in the same file that contains the respawning behaviour.
      Basically, all it would take is take those two IDs, copy and paste the Disable/Kill lines and replace the boss' ID with them.
      If this mod didn't have the low HP buff and only gave enemies elemental damage and doubled them, it could have been made without editing scripts, but since it DOES I'm pretty sure it would only take two copy/pastes and changing those IDs to the new enemies'.
      On the other hand, they might've found some hacky way of doing it without editing scripts and just chose not to do any scripting, even if that sounds way more complicated to me. As someone that has never modded anything and only knows about how modding is done from LobosJr's "Learning Modding", I am confident I could modify ALL of those enemies to not respawn in a single day; including downloading all the programs I'd need for modding them.
      Although maybe THAT might be the answer. Maybe at the time of creation for this mod the script part simply wasn't developed/understood enough. Since connecting the Adds' AI with the boss would've solved those cheese problems, that might just be it.
      Either way, nowadays it is possible to do and honestly not hard either. Definitely easier than giving them low HP buffs, too.

    • russeshe001
      russeshe001 Před 3 měsíci +10

      The reason they respawn is because, as far as I can tell, they're not bound to the boss room in the same way that the boss itself is. They're just random enemies that just so happen to be in that room too. If they were made not to respawn, then players could kill them, fail to kill the boss and die, and when they return for their next attempt the additional enemies just wouldn't be there.

U would only need to do Ranni questline. Kill mimic tear, then gargoyles and lich dragon. After which u would unlock teleport to royal capital under normal circumstances (Not sure if author of the mood thought so far). U also normally skip the Dragon Sentinel boss fight this way.

If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?

      Bleed not working but magic does???? you see the mods bias already.
      So call it just play with magic build because melee is useless.

      i have a kind of challenge for you that other comments are saying is stupid, but here you go anyway. I call this challenge the Elden Ring Nuzlocke. the rules are below.
      - every time you die with anything equipped you have to discard those things, except for special items
      - if you die without any armor equipped you have to delete that character
      - you can't use torrent
      - you can't fast travel except for to the round table only when you are at a grace, and when you teleport back you have to go back to the same grace you were at before
      - you have to fight enemies who engage you and who are also threatening to you at the time
