      I am playing the standard version of DS2 and i completed already about half of the game. Do i have to restart if i download the DLC?

        In my opinion:

        Sunken king - Best level design/connectivity

        Old iron king - Best bosses

        Ivory king - Coolest location / best atmosphere

            PSA: all forms of casted magic have heavily reduced damage in the DLC. You need to physically whack stuff with a weapon, or physically shoot things with an uninfused bow. Infused swords end up working enough to get you by, but are weaker than even minimum stat physical weapons.

            So if you're a caster, low level, or otherwise don't have good physical damage best DLC route is:

            Shulva -> Eleum Loyce up to first boss (do the side area before boss) -> Brume -> Rest of Eleum Loyce.

            There is equipment early on in that route that low level characters are going to find extremely useful for the second half of the route.

            If you want defense equipment before damage equipment, do Shulva second in that list.

            That's just a recommendation. There's no reason you can't do Brume first. Any order is possible. BUT it will be easiest the way I described and there's a massive jump in difficulty from base game to DLC.

              All DLCs only increase the enemy's power and place more red ones. ranged weapons are often quite weak when used with bosses, even if NG ++, you will not be stronger than bosses. Bosses are usually fast and powerful, but you don't. ('0')

                I defeated Nashandra in normal mode, went back to Majula and didn't enter NG+ yet. Can I still purchase DLCs to get crowns and still bring them to Vendrick? Or it only works before I finished Nashandra?

                  So my scholar of the first sin give the dlc key at the start and that's it. I beat the game, nothing changes, everything is the same as the original include items, monsters, etc. Any idea why?

                  • Anonymous

                    I bought Scholar of the First Sin on 360, downloaded some sort of update from the second disc (required, as I couldn't play the game without it), and have started up numerous characters, all of which beginning with the Dragon Talon, Frozen Flower and Heavy Iron Key.

                      Fromsoftware ha confermato l'arrivo di altri ben 3 DLC(downloadable content) per Dark Souls 2 titolo di cui abbiamo sentito parlare molto ultimamente, dopo il successo dei primi due DLC e il restante terzo, abbiamo avuto la possibilità di intervistare un componente di FromSoftware che ha confermato l'arrivo di altri DLC nel prossimo anno. Speriamo sia una vera notizia e non un classico troll di fromsoftware. Cheers :D
