    Ok, I believe Soris has retired for the night, so head to the demon ruins, Physco.

    Yes, Soris. In fact, I would like to discuss the ranking system in general with you and sword in the near future.

    well, I was close. Shrug 


    Luvz; no, you're listed as a Knight... which is rank 3.  Of course, a mage is also rank 3.  I can switch your title if you like.  laughing   Seriously, if it says rank 2 somewhere for you, point it out please and I'll fix it.

    You can duel if you want.  Personally, I tend to avoid dueling areas.  I don't attack anybody who bows, but I usually put my shield up to kinda say 'let's go'.  Most of the time that happens in areas where I'm hesitant to trust people, anyway though (ie forest, dark AL).  Occasionally, I'll bow back if I'm certain they're legitimately dueling.

    Be aware, though, that sometimes duelists will stop dueling and gank a blue. I notice people will stop fighting at the bottom of the Harpie tower in the Pw and gank as soon as I invade.

    Don't forget guys, just over 2 days left for EotW submissions.  Only one submission so far!  You're odds are great! big grin That goes for voting on last week's submissions as well.  We have ballots from Paragon, Soris, Godzilla and myself so far.

    I have a few I'm saving to submit, but I thought these were worth sharing in the mean time...

    Ser, I humbly request to join the ranks of Velka's chosen warriors to purge Lordran of the scum whom dare pollute the land of the Gods with their sin. 
    Truly, I am but an humble magician wielding Velka's blessed rapier, and my friend is just a jack of all trades warrior but I believe in a world purged of sinners, of the mighty and numerous Kaathe's Darkstalkers, of the dark hearted selfish humans who lust over another's humanity. 

     May my sword serve the God's Will,
    May my catalyst cast cataclysm on the sinners,
    And may my talisman show the Way to the blind.

    Very well.  You are here hereby a Messenger of Velka.  Begin by slaying sinners who wish to plunder the treasures of our Goddess and assassinate our allies' Queen in the Painted World.

    I am so very proud of Psycho's continued success. I taught him every trick i knew well enough to teach and to see that he is getting results from them is very fulfilling for a teacher. To this I must hasten to add that his triumphs are his own and I only have influence in their beginnings not in their fruition. In other words:  thumbs up


    @Hugh, I must have misread the OP and interpreted it as saying that I was rank 2. My bad on getting it confused blushing

    EotW submission: "BOOM! HEADSHOT!"

    So as you can probably guess from the title, someone in this story is gonna get shot in the head... kind of self explanatory really but i digress.

    Anyway my story begins in the kiln, invading with my sl 122 Q build. The extra 2 levels are so i can equip at least one pyromancy. I initially planned to equip GC but for some reason I dont have Quelanna on this play thru, so I had to settle for regular combustion. I realized that while using a weapon like the bastard sword, alot of people will try to parry it. My reasoning was that if i end up fighting somebody who like to spam parry, i trick them into parrying so i can hit them with combustion. It doesnt do a whole lot of damage but it works in principle so once i get GC ill be doing more damage.

    In addition to a pyromancy glove, plus 15 (no idea where I got it from since quelanna aint around on this playthrough) I also have a +15 composite bow for dealing with mages at a distance. This particular invadee was not a mage of any sort, but I had killed him handily already with a well timed riposte so i decided to mix it up on this second invasion. I would hit him with my sword, combustion, arrows, firebombs, and kicks to keep the fight lively.

    As our battle neared its end, I was at the halfway point of my health bar and so decided to finish him with an arrow. So i pulled out my composite bow but instead of locking on to him i accidentally went to manual aim mode. I almost panicked as he ran towards me with his scythe but instead of backing out and dodging I decided to risk taking the hit and so loosed my arrow.

    What happened next I had not seen occur in a long time. As everyone knows when you land a headshot on your opponent they stumble backwards regardless of how much poise they have. In this case the headshot was also the killing blow and so instead of simply staggering backwards and falling down, my opponent with an arrow now lodged firmly in his skull spun around forcefully as if he had been slapped silly and fell to the ground with a most comical "flop."

    The resulting laughter almost brought me to tears. Tho rather than laughing at my opponents misfortune, rather i laughed at how silly and inane the developers had made this particular animation and at how out of place it seemed in a game so incontrovertibly dark in nature.

    No prob, Luvz.

    ------ 

    I witnessed our sister in arms the Lady of the Darkling claim an ear.  I didn't help at all, either!  From the spawn point in the great hall and saw a white on the stairs before the boss room.  The one part about dark Anor Londo I still hate is taking on ganks in the great hall.  It's just too easy for two people to get a BS in there.  So, I literally pulled out my binoculars and stood there and looked at them (I was able to spot the host with the zoom) for quit some time.  I also tinkered with my setup -- it's a brand new build and and I've got a few different ways to set it up.  

    They eventually come towards me and I retreat to the moving staircase.  The Darkmoon Knightess is alive of course, so they pull up short as to not aggro her like it's a titanite Demon or something.  Look Skyward   More gesturing, more binoculars, more tinkering (this time I start looking for gestures to send back and organizing them so they're where I want them).  The white comes forward after a while (after failing to hit me with the avelyn rolling eyes  ) and the host engages the LotD.  I put on SLB and the white makes a 180.  I go to chase him, he kinda turns just to turtle and waste time, not really engage... then out of nowhere: TARGET DESTROYED! ...ok Shrug  I ran the white down and BSed him.  I either didn't get to him quick enough or he had like 3 HP.  Because right after I BSed him, his HP vanished and so did he. silly

    That was kinda weird, but this deserved its own thread.

    -----

    Hope you feel better tomorrow, Soris.
