Dark Souls: Soul Level 1 - Fist Weapons Only - Boxer Challenge - Smough & Super Ornstein (sl1)

author Somethodox   6 years ago

Smough & Super Ornstein at Soul Level 1 with Fist Weapons Only.

Naked and Melee only, so no pyromancy or shield are allowed. No Target Lock On. No Healing/No Damage run.

A Christmas present for a fellow Brit and one of my favourite Let's Players, Kazamieras. Inspired by his boxer challenge series and the difficulties encountered I thought he might enjoy seeing Smores and Oreos being taken out by my new sl1 character, Knuckles!

I might take this character further through the game if there's any demand for it. Smough and Ornstein are probably the hardest milestone for a fists only character anyway. Apologies for the video skipping ever so slightly a couple of times, my Roxio Capture Device is a sensitive soul and overheats whenever it chooses to cause me as much grief as possible. Speaking of grief I was forced to use the Lightning Caestus +4 because my Stray Demon glitched and did not drop a sodding Titanite Slab.

Welcome to my variant of the vageta311 low level one shot boss challenge playthrough. It follows exactly the same rules but with two crucial differences: 1.) With the exception of Power Within, I will not be using any pyromancies or sorceries. This means that the methods of one-shotting bosses with spells like Fire Tempest, Chaos Storm and Dark Bead are simply not possible. 2.) No holds barred challenge run. Although everything must be earned legitimately (and not through using the BB glitch or save editing) any in-game glitches and mechanics can be used to proceed through the challenge. For those of you who don't like glitches in your Dark Souls at all I completely understand and respect that, and would advise you not to watch the playthrough. You have been warned! I am not an advocate of using glitches in any form of online or pvp play. Basically I wanted to give this challenge a shot and to try and find some alternative methods of one-shotting bosses, rather than following tried and tested formulas. The above restrictions should help me to think outside of the box and hopefully produce an entertaining and interesting playthrough for you guys. It will mostly focus on the boss kills, but I'll be covering anything else of note or interest, including shortcuts, secrets and farming techniques. This first part briefly covers my preparations and journey to the first bell guarded by the Gargoyles. The actual boss kills begin at 5:51. Original vageta311 rules of the challenge: 1. Must start at SL 1. 2. Must play through normally, no BB glitch or save editing. 3. Must earn the right to level using the point system. - One shotting a boss gives 2 points. - Two shotting a boss gives 1 point. - One shotting a mini boss gives 1 point. - Use this list for what constitutes as a mini boss (http://darksouls.wikidot.com/bosses). - Anything that respawns does not give points for obvious reasons. - Boss fights with multiple opponents allow for 1 hit on each to count for a "one shot". However you aren't allowed 2 hits on each boss for a "two shot" kill. In that situation you must still one shot at least one of them to get the point. - 4 Kings counts as a double boss, same as O&S. - Causing an enemy to fall off a cliff due to your attack counts. Purposely trying to make an enemy fall on their own does not. 4. Single attacks with multiple hits count as one attack (ripostes, firestorm, homing soul mass, etc... Since "one attack challenge" sounds lame, I just called it "one shot challenge". 5. When you reach a point in the game where you are stuck and can't progress due to not being able to take any of the remaining bosses down in 2 or less hits, the challenge is over. 6. The goal is not necessarily to win the game, it is simply to gain the most amount of points before you cannot make any further progress. This requires a bit of strategy and forethought as opposed to pure skill. 7. No you may not summon a friend to use the trident dance buff on you. Hope you all enjoy! Subscribe and stick around for the rest of the playthrough if you do. Till next time.

A video in which I overpower a new level 1 character before even stepping foot in the Undead Burg. By taking a shortcut in the Catacombs, I was able to kill Pinwheel (with the assistance of Paladin Leeroy), obtain a family mask to help get me through the groups of angry skeletons, obtaining the Great Scythe, and ascending it to the Fire element. From title screen to the Fire ascended Great Scythe, it took just under ten and a half minutes. As stated in the subtitles - I do not recommend beginners attempt this in the exact same way I did.

This is me using OroboroTheNinja's (aka Brandon505's) primary setup (slightly adjusted to fit my stats) and his playstyle. I didn't want to use just his setup, i wanted to attempt to mimic his playstyle as well so that i could try to use his build correctly. Hopefully i didn't disgrace his build too much, haha. This might be something i do occasionally with Gankers Pay The Price. I'll attempt to use well-known builds to help mix things up.

Welcome to the eigth episode of my new Dark Souls challenge playthrough! If you've just happened to stumble across this video then please check out the rules for this challenge either by checking out the summary below or by clicking this link to the rules video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMpncC_xYXg The Demon Ruins isn't exactly my favourite area in the game but it's got to be done. It should allow us to bank some points in preparation for the DLC and it also means that by the time we've finished that we can just go straight onto Gwyn. Apologies for the delay since the last episode. I'm in the process of moving house and it's disrupted my schedule somewhat. Thanks for your patience!

Must obtain and equip the Dusk Crown Ring as soon as possible. 2.) Must earn the right to level using the points system. i.) Each point you earn entitles you to level up once. ii.) For every boss you defeat you gain 1 point. iii.) For every NPC* you kill you gain 1 point. iv.) NPC's are named characters and invaders only - if they don't have a name, they don't count. 3.) You cannot use any upgraded weapons. They must be at their base and weakest form. 4.) Besides your starting class of weapons, you can only use weapons that are looted from the corpse of an NPC. Talismans and Catalysts are not considered to be weapons. 5.) The only way you are allowed to improve your damage is via leveling up through the points system. Everything must be earned. i.) That means things like the Hornet Ring, Red Tearstone Ring, Crown of Dusk and Power Within are banned, but weapon buffs are allowed since you can only use them by leveling up. ii.) The only exception to this rule regards items like Resins, Knives, and Firebombs which are both rare and consumable. 6.) No Phantoms or Summons are allowed. 7.) No Healing is allowed during an encounter with a Boss or an NPC. *Guide to NPC's - http://darksoulswiki.wikispaces.com/Characters#Other NPCs I've tried to strike a balance between what is a very demanding but entertaining challenge. And I also wanted to try something that you guys probably haven't seen before. My hope is that there's a little something for everyone here, so sit back, relax and enjoy! And if you do, feel free to stick around and subscribe for the rest of the series. Till next time, Somethodox
