quickexplanation of what it is actuallychances are if you're watching thisvideo you already know what this game isbut even so Sultan sanctuariesphysically if Dark Souls was made as a2d action RPG with a lot of platformingWatch at: 00:40 / 01:00and some Metroidvania s mechanics it isheavily inspired by Dark Souls inCastlevania as you can probably tell andhas received positive reception fromcritics the game also features 2dhand-drawn visuals and again gameplaymechanics similar to the soul seriesremember when I said hollow Knight iskind of like if Dark Souls and Mariofused into one yeah that was a horribleWatch at: 01:00 / 01:20example this is kind of like that with alot more dead blood and gore likeCastlevania in a lot more salt literallyand so to help you guys have items areplanning to try this game for yourselvesI made this video two rules theguidelines are simply deduce and dont'sthis is like I said salt and sanctuaryWatch at: 01:20 / 01:40is a 2d action role-playing video gamedeveloped and published by Scott Studiosthe game was released on March 15 2016for the PlayStation 4 and was laterreleased on the PC Mac Linux PlayStationVita and Nintendo switch the game iswidely considered as the 2d Dark Soulsand I agree I know like I'm saying DarkSouls a lot but bear with meWatch at: 01:40 / 02:00the game features hundreds of items thatthe player can use several weaponcategories special move sets from setweapon categories the bullet the blockroll and parry cast spells used bothstarting origins gifts classes and statdevelopment as well as one of the mostextensive skill trees I have ever seenin a role-playing game providinghundreds of combinations the game alsofeatures multiplayer features mainlyWatch at: 02:00 / 02:20co-op and the new game plus mode it alsogives you the ability to help or messwith other people online playing thesame game as you honestly the latter bemore fun if that doesn't scream DarkSouls I don't know what does the coolthing about it is the whole game iscreated by only two individual peopleincluding all of the designing choicesand most of the artworks found in theWatch at: 02:20 / 02:40game actually all of the artwork foundin the game butthat what you do care about is abeginner's guide video on solvingsanctuary and I'm just gonna put it outthere that I played the game a bunch oftimes and has been in the game twicewants to record a game and to rerecordit again because I kind of lost thefootage of my first playthrough anywaysWatch at: 02:40 / 03:00let's get started[Music]if you haven't played in for the DarkSouls games then here's what you need toknow it's an RPG you collect Souls eachtime you kill a monster or in this casealts and then you use those salts tolevel up in a parade here you exploreMaps acquire items fight bar monstersand really complete in there you areWatch at: 03:00 / 03:20usefully with a really big and/ordifficult boss battle hidden in aspecific zone of the map sometimes it'shugesometimes it's fast most of the time butat the same time and that's it and allyou'll die like a lot and when you dieyou lose all those salts and apercentage of gold you receive during aplay true and no salt means you can'tWatch at: 03:20 / 03:40level up and if you can't level up thenthat would equate into you losing allthe time you spent collecting all thosesalts in the first placeWatch at: 03:40 / 04:00now I know what you're thinking just trynot to die right I mean it's a 2d RPGhow hard could it possibly be right noyou can't just not die the game isextremely difficult and sometimes mighteven seem unfair to new players and evenWatch at: 04:00 / 04:20some experienced players but only enoughit's a really effective mechanic thatkeeps the player base high and askingfor more of this Dark Souls as gamesit's fun it's brutal and it's alsosatisfying to play let's start withcharacter creation because you know orelse should we start at charactercreation you'll be asked to choose froma series of starting classes althoughWatch at: 04:20 / 04:40I'm not going to go over the classes toomuch as the classes themselves don'treally make that much of an impact onyour character it just sets what sort ofskills and equipment your characters canI have at the start of the game whetheryou pick wire or mage it wouldn't reallymatter unless you have some sort ofbuild that you have in mind and both myplay throughs I started with a pauperclass which is basically a jobless classWatch at: 04:40 / 05:00having no skills and mediocre equipmentI highly advise that you don't do thisif this is your first feature of a DarkSouls game in fact I advise that if youare gonna pick a class pick a class thatyou know you're gonna be sticking tountil the end of the game still againwhichever class you pick it wouldn'treally matter in the end you can startas a mage and end the game as an archerif you want to so don't think about theWatch at: 05:00 / 05:20starting classes too much if you'rereally not sure what to pick take thewarrior since for me it's the simplestand easiest one out of the bunch afterclass selection you'll be asked to picka starting gift you can choose frommultiple gifts which are all useful tosome extent but after three to fourhours playing a game depending on howquickly you can go to the game chancesWatch at: 05:20 / 05:40are you would already have every singleone of those starting gifts in handacquiring them from all sorts of placesin the map whichever one you pick iscompletely up to you personally again itwouldn't really matter after some timewhat you pick and as such I would justrecommend you just get the grasping ringafter that customize your character howyou see fitmale/female doesn't matter whicheverWatch at: 05:40 / 06:00origin you pick also would it matteronce you actually get into the gameyou'll find yourself in some sort ofshift things happen and then you getwashed up on some sort of island nowthis island will be the entirety of thegame everything else that will happensoon after will take place on thisisland you're free to explore whereveryoubut since this is a Metroidvania DarkWatch at: 06:00 / 06:20Souls Castlevania scheme you'll beforced to stay in specific zones of themap until you get the branch needed toadvance from one zone to another more onthat later enemy strength is static soif you find some of the monsters toomuch or just too difficult to killchances are you're not supposed to bethere yet and all sorts of the map areall interconnected in some sort of wayand there are certain shortcuts that youWatch at: 06:20 / 06:40can use to go true from one part of themap to another but if you are gonna dothat make sure that you've leveled upenough so you won't die as quickly whenyou get there let's talk about the UIand the basic combat stats this is yourhealth bar or just hug the amount oflife that the player has if you get hitby an enemy or if you drop down from aWatch at: 06:40 / 07:00high vantage point you will lose heartthe player will die when it reaches 0pretty basic stuff if you didn't alreadyknow what this is I'm really concernedwhy you pick salt and sanctuary is yourfirst action game this is this time in abar or just stamina much like an actionbar this determines the amount ofactions that the player can do beforehaving you let it recharge this includesWatch at: 07:00 / 07:20attacking spell casting ruling and usingyour shield basically almost everyaction that your character can do wellexcept for jumping focus works as yourmagic bar or your mana it's like youraction bar but it depletes when you usespell sprayers miracles and incantationsunlike stamina it does not replenish onits own but can be replenished withitems or at a sanctuary it's a littleWatch at: 07:20 / 07:40hard to see but it's the white bar belowyour stamina also as your focus getsdepleted you will slowly get fatiguelowering your maximum stamina until yourest at a sanctuary or use an itemattack is the amount of damage that theplayer will do but equipped weapon thehigher the stat you have for your weaponthe higher the damage you can deal withsaid weapon more on that later drop rateWatch at: 07:40 / 08:00is the rate at which items are likely todrop from enemies upon killing themincreasing this that will increase theprobability of item drops and finallyequip is the stat that represents howmuch the player can carry before he isoverburden the hired equips that thelatter your character can feel and assuch you'll move more quicker and morefluid back to the island true series ofWatch at: 08:00 / 08:20bottled messages the game will tell youthe basic mechanics of the game some ofthem you learn on your own and some youlearn from other players again via dosebottled messages keep an eye out onas most of those messages are reallyhelpful for new players although bothtake everything there too seriouslysometimes some of them are really justmade to mess with other people the firstWatch at: 08:20 / 08:40area is the shivering shore in thefestering Bank way bank way and quatBank way is simple enough it's prettystraightforward and the game will letyou know what you need to know I dohighly recommend though that before youeven leave this area is that you reachlevel 5 at the very least the enemies inthe succeeding zones will be harder thanthe next so it's a good idea to keep onadvancing at least 5 levels for eachWatch at: 08:40 / 09:00zone of the map also hidden in everyarea most of the time at the far end ofeach zone is a very challenging bossbattle a good way to know if you'reclose to a boss battle is to keep an eyeout on these things if you see this thenwhat comes after would most definitelybe some sort of boss battle be sureyou've leveled up neatly beforeundergoing in such battles and thatyou've done your absolute best toexplore the whole zone again that mightWatch at: 09:00 / 09:20not be possible in some areas might belocked until you get the specific brandto go through them but at least you'regoing to the fight knowing you've doneeverything else nice to do and you canjust come back later when you receivethe appropriate brand speaking ofleveling up this will be your main wayof reaching such feats this is the saltand sanctuary skill tree or what thegame calls it the tree of skill but toWatch at: 09:20 / 09:40make it easier for me I'll just call itthe skill tree the tree Sam I dividedinto magic mainly for mages dexterityfor hunters and thieves strength forwarrior types and turns for heavyarmored dudes and fate for charactersthat you sprayers now this is whatyou're going to be looking at the wholegame every time you level up your statsbe sure that before you even invest apoint on your skills is that you fullyhave an idea and what sort of characterWatch at: 09:40 / 10:00you're planning to build the skill treemay be a bit too overpowering to newplayers but that's okayit's all part of the learning systemalso from this point on when I say skillpoint what I meant to say is the blackpearl that you receive each time welevel up and to make sure you won't doany critical mistakes while levelingI'll try my best to explain what each ofthe main stats do including all theskills found in the tree feel free toWatch at: 10:00 / 10:20pass on any specific point in the videoas I'll go through this with as muchinformation as quickly as I cannow trout the skill tree you'll findwhat I call class skills being a veryopen-ended class system in an RPG saltand sanctuary made a very fine job ingiving a player the chance to mix upcertain classes well I do believe thatthe game itself already explains theclass skills perfectly for the purposeWatch at: 10:20 / 10:40of this video I'll try my best to listout and explain what each of theclassicalto also take note that I only been inthe game twice once it's a two-handedwarrior with full heavy armor andsecondly as a spell sword also usesheavy armor but with the dexterity andmagic-based build why did I tell youthis I don't know it felt like somethingI should say the sword fighter skills ofWatch at: 10:40 / 11:00course let's use swordsmost of the overpowered weapons that thegame uses the strength build or moreoften than not uses swords as their mainweapon this is why I said if you don'tknow which class to pick take thewarrior this class case discuss ok thisis okay I'm just gonna skate I'm justgonna say skill ok okthis skill also lets you use a very OpieWatch at: 11:00 / 11:20and easy to acquire great sword that youcan equip and beat the whole game readmore on that later mic man let's usefull access Reapers and spirits therange of this weapons can help youconsiderably when it comes to flyingenemies that are hard to reach it canalso help by hitting multiple enemies atonce hunter lets you use whips now I'mnot really sure how effective whips arein this game but I have seen a lot ofWatch at: 11:20 / 11:40people have fun and use this weaponeffectively as long as you know andunderstand what your whip can and cannotdo move sets and all they do however gowell with crossbows and guns as I'veseen in many pitchers the archer classskills of course lets you use bows Ipersonally think that the boss in thisgame are made a secondary weapons aresupposed to be in your main weaponWatch at: 11:40 / 12:00they're good at damaging enemies at thedistance but the aiming mechanic and thedamage itself is not really somethingyou can rely on on big boss fightsalthough like I could be wrong if youmanage to make it work tell me in thecomment section belowthe marksman skill lets you usecrossbows and pistols like the bowthey're good secondary weapons and someof them are great as an offhand weapon Ido like to remind everyone that blackWatch at: 12:00 / 12:20bows they might not be as perfectagainst specific classes althoughthey're very much opie in certainsituations the assassin skill revolvesaround using daggers well they do have avery short range they can be usedeffectively if you know what you'redoing they are very fun to play with andcan recover quickly mid combo thanks tothe speed and weight of this weapon it'svery easy to execute combos to quicklyWatch at: 12:20 / 12:40dispatch an enemy and are best used witha range offhand weapon because of theadded mobility it brings this skill letsyou equip higher tiered shields that'sit that's all I got the Berserker givesyou the ability to use hammers and axeswell I do recommend just using a swordwhen it comes to strength builds if youhave ever wishedwe'll play with an accent or a hammerWatch at: 12:40 / 13:00they're all so effective when it comesto pure damage output it's the same witha berserker but with the two-handedversions of the hammers and axes theycan be very slow but makes up for itwith its mi increased range and theability to instantly destroy an enemywith one to two hits allows you to usestaffs staffsstaves stop and the chance to use what IWatch at: 13:00 / 13:20believe is the mostopie weapon in the game when it comes toranged damage output when these wandsget some magnets these are perfect as anoffhand weapon for hybrid builds usingmagic take this if you want to usespells and incantations take this if youwant to use prayers take this if youplan on wearing light armor and this ifyou want heavy armor light armor forWatch at: 13:20 / 13:40mobility and heavy armor for damagereduction you can mix and matchdifferent class skills if you want youcan be a heavy armor staff holding mageor be a two-handed light armor wearingsamurai this is completely up to you aslong as you're happy you'll do finealthough again I do suggest that youjust stick with one or two attributes ifthis is your first playthrough stillWatch at: 13:40 / 14:00again if you think you know what you'redoing do what you wanted to you can justcreate another character from scratch ifyou need to now that you know the coremechanics of the game what to keep inmind a class skills and what yourcharacter can and cannot do let's talkabout everything else in the game saltsand gold or more importantly salt systemin currency of the game every time youWatch at: 14:00 / 14:20level up and upgrade gear the game willrequire you to give up a number of saltsthe higher you level up or the betterthe gear you're using the more salt youwill have to spend gold on the otherhand is less important as this is onlyused to buy items from merchantsscattered and hidden in the world youautomatically gain this from killingenemies and can also be spent onsanctuary and pcs speaking of sanctuaryWatch at: 14:20 / 14:40sanctuaries are those events that thecharacter can go through to save thegame replenish stats and level up thisis also where you'll find most if notall merchants that will sell your itemsor upgrades for your gear kneeling on asanctuary you will respawn every singleenemy in the game and will treat thelast sanctuary that you kneel that asyour respawn point now this is a keyfeature and a core mechanic in all soulsboard gamesWatch at: 14:40 / 15:00sanctuaries are always themed after aspecific Creed and upgrades and gearthat you get from the sanctuary willrelate themselves to whatever Queen theyare based on there are seven Creed'spresent in the gamefor spoiler-free reasons and because Idon't want to make this video any longerthan it needs to I will sadly not goover this on this video I personallythink that it's far better for theplayer to figure this stuff on your ownWatch at: 15:00 / 15:20as most of the story you'll get from thegame are found in the little details ofthe environment or from the stories thatthe NPC's will often share with you it'sactually your job to fit this key storypieces on your own if you want to figureout the game's overall story there aretwo weeks you can upgrade your gear oneis to bring your gear to a friendlyblacksmith and pay him to upgrade a gearfor you which would boost up its statsWatch at: 15:20 / 15:40and its effectiveness as long as youhave the required amount of salt and aspecific number of material items moreon that later and the second one is totransmute the item into a different itemaltogether resulting in a far moresuperior item with different stats anddifferent special effects or evenspecial loupe sets although sometimestransmuting won't really bring out abetter item however and as such I wouldWatch at: 15:40 / 16:00recommend just checking the stats ofwhat your animal turned into beforeperforming the transportation theeffectiveness of the weapon will rely oneach of the weapon stat scale s ABCDEeach weapon has different stats killingsas being the highest and being thelowest obviously the hardest at scalethe more the weapon will use that statas its attack multiplier if this isWatch at: 16:00 / 16:19getting too confusing just know that thehigher the scaling the more damage itwould probably deal again it'scompletely up to you how you wish toexperiment on us later on the tips andtricks section I'll list out some goodweapon selections you can use for theearly game and some for the endgamesprayers and spouses the alternative wayof dealing damage rather than usingweapons their effectiveness depend onWatch at: 16:19 / 16:40your wisdom and magic start respectivelyas I said before and will require theirassociated class skill you'll find theskills along the skill tree to simplerthe skill the closer the skill is at thecenter of the tree if you need to farmor greater skill you must build it upuntil you reach your chosen skill thisskills require more skill points inorder to unlock and as such I recommendonly getting the skills you plan onWatch at: 16:40 / 17:00using as wasting skill points in thisgame is a horrible horrible idea thereare multiple prayers and spots in theentire game and all of them areeffective in their own special wayhowever I do admit that some prayers andspells are far superior than the othersbut that kinda depends on your playstyle okay we're almost done with thehow to play section of the video I justhave to go over a few things andWatch at: 17:00 / 17:20our brands brands are special skills orwhat I would call movement abilitiesthat you acquire while playing the gamesome brands let you jump farther somebrands lets you go through blockedpassages and some some are just weirdlike I said you will acquire thesebrands while playing the game which willlet you access hidden parts of aspecific zone of the map I highly adviseWatch at: 17:20 / 17:40that whenever you get a new brand isthat you revisit some of the unreachablelocations you've encountered whileplaying the game most of the time thatbrand is the key way of reaching thatlocation to begin with and most of thetime there's a shortcut item and gearset found in this hidden locationswith that said on with the tips andtricks section after video won't be freeto replay the game from the start if youWatch at: 17:40 / 18:00messed up building your character Ipersonally do this every time I play anRPG to me RPGs are a learning experiencein fact if you replay the game from thestart you'll start to build yourcharacter better since you already knowwhat it took it means that in skills dueyou will die is a part of the gameunless you're some sort of extremeexpert about the game you will dieWatch at: 18:00 / 18:20actually even then there's still a goodchance that you'll die quickly andunfairly but that's fine if you do diedon't make it out of nothing and try toturn all your debts into a learningexperience whenever you do that you willlose all your thoughts and will turnitself into a flying bat like creaturewith all your salts the best way toretake your salts is to go back whereyou've died and kill this creature ifyou die before that all your salts willWatch at: 18:20 / 18:40permanently disappear if you get killedby something else your remaining saltswill go to the monster that killed youand reclaiming all those salts willrequire you to kill that monster as muchas possible whenever you have enoughsalts always consume them outrightwhether to level up or upgrade gearhoarding salts is much too risky forthis game and it's completelyunadvisable to do so we have salts justWatch at: 18:40 / 19:00use them at some point in the game theenemies will start to overpower you whenthis happens it's a good idea to go backto the last zone that you were at andstart farming salts to level up you willoften have to backtrack to yoursanctuary to level up which would alsoresult in you responding every singleenemy in the gamethere is absolutely no pausing in thisgame if you need to do something quickWatch at: 19:00 / 19:20you may need to find a safe place toleave your character while you do whatyou have to do try to focus on levelingonly one or two at the very least weaponscaling stats as much as possible if youplan on being a mage focus on magicAssassin go texture D do not level upthree or more weapon scaling stats asthat will broaden your skills too muchit will cause you to have a very veryWatch at: 19:20 / 19:40hard time towards the end game if yournew focus on one if you know what you'redoing go with two but still if you're acomplete beginner just focus on one I'vesaid it before and I'll say it againdon't think about which class you'regonna start off too much as it's justthe thermal switch skills and equipmentyou'll start with the game if you have aparticular build in mind then go withWatch at: 19:40 / 20:00the class closest to what you plan andcreating you really don't need tocomplete a specific division of a skilltree just pick what you need and thenjust level up your existing skill pointsyou can only add up to three skillpoints in a specific skill however sokeep that in mind you can only equip twoweapon sets within a given play true youcan't use them both at the same timemeaning you will have to switch weaponsets whenever you need to use aWatch at: 20:00 / 20:20different weapon this is alreadyexplained in the tutorial but I feellike I still need to include this herekeep your quick slot bar as short aspossible using an atom will momentarilypause any sort of movement for yourcharacter this will result in a massivevulnerability to incoming attacks somake sure you only use atoms that youabsolutely need to use clean up yourinventory every so often it may not lookWatch at: 20:20 / 20:40as much but this is a massive tip in allRPGs sometimes you don't really needevery single thing in your inventory andthat they're better off being sold forcurrency so you can acquire some moreprecious upgrades speaking of inventorythe race loss within your inventory areof course used to slot and rings breaksat special bonuses for your characterssuch as increased damage reduce focuscos and gradual HP regeneration you canWatch at: 20:40 / 21:00only slot in four rings at the same timeso plan out your build accordinglycharms are special equipment items thatwant a player passive bonuses to theirweapons when equipped there are niceadditions for your build and can help alot as long as you use the appropriatecharm there are sixteen chumps in thegame and most of them can be easilyacquired just by exploring pickingwhether to use a wand or staff onlyWatch at: 21:00 / 21:20matters when it comes to how you handlecombat once can only be used as anoffhand weapon and staffs can beconsidered two-handed weapons inaddition to spell casting staffs canparry and block and once can only shootout spells using multiple read chartswill cost you how to regenerate fasterread charts thus not to fill itself atthe sanctuary however and activatingthem only happens once weapon abuse areWatch at: 21:20 / 21:40consumable items that can be used toimbue weapons with a secondary elementdamaged are scattered around the worldbut most of them can be bought fromsanctuary merchants as long as you havetheir respective greed while playing thegame you will encounter items such asspecks of salt and suitcases of saltthese are containers of salt and de whothey contain salt use them and you gainsalt material items are unique itemsWatch at: 21:40 / 22:00that are dropped by enemies and the morespecial ones I dropped by bosses youneed this material items to properly apreacher gear or to completely transmutean atom into a different atom atom it'sa really hard thing to keep on saying[ __ ] torches can be used to light upspecific areas that are too dark to seeI'm not really sure which key buttonlights up torches on keyboards but forcontrollers they're usually the down keyWatch at: 22:00 / 22:20on the d-pad as promised there's a goodselection of weapons used for the earlygame and some for the end game if youreally want to beat this game badly forstrength builds I recommend the jaws ofdeath for magic builds I recommend seeour staff patchy is one of the bestweapons for text mills but sadly when itcomes to wisdom builds I'm not reallyinformed enough to give out arecommendation if you guys know someWatch at: 22:20 / 22:40good weapon selections tell everyone inthe comments section below I would liketo say that these are the best weaponsonly in my opinion that the stock meanthey truly are the best I only been inthe game twice I'm only suggesting thisweapons because that's what I've heardof the most when I research about thisgame I do stand my ground and a Josephthat however they dish out too muchdamage considering how early you can getWatch at: 22:40 / 23:00them dodge rolled chop block and ferrycombat in this game is very tactile andfluid practice on using your timeferries and blocks while in combat anduse your dodges and rolls you'll save alot more time this way instead of havingto go back to your sanctuary to resetyour home and saves you the hassle ofusing your already limited healthpoulticeswhen rolling you are invincible toWatch at: 23:00 / 23:20damage for a short window of time youcan roll through enemies if you areclose enough to them when you initiate arollevery time you kneel on a sanctuaryyou'll receive a number of helpful tosays you can use this helpful to sense -of course gain back health be carefulwhen you use this atom however as theyare very limited and makes youvulnerable when in the process ofdrinking one parrying at the precisemoment an enemy is going to attack opensWatch at: 23:20 / 23:40them up for a repast repast repast isthat how you pronounce it attackingwhile this is active will give youinvincibility frames and a coolanimation you can also do this when youbreak an enemy's guard or deal enoughwhich to them weapons all have differentcombos and attack animations andexperimenting on this is a huge factorwhen it comes to deciding which weaponWatch at: 23:40 / 24:00to go with made that said find a weaponthat you love and stick with it and saltand sanctuary you'll start to discoverdifferent types of weapons this could bespear swords hammers bows daggers andmany more you might be tempted to use asmany as three or more weapons but Istrongly advise not doing this and justfind a weapon that has good weaponscaling along with a special move setthat you enjoy later on you'll be ableWatch at: 24:00 / 24:20to breed your weapon with souls and amaterial atom material items are reallydifficult to come by and as such it'srecommended that you upgrade one or twoweapons the whole game each set of armorhas their own elemental and physicalresistance and since each zone of themap has different types of enemieswithin them it may be a good idea toswitch armor sets if necessary if anWatch at: 24:20 / 24:40atom has a red X on it then it's safe tosay that you can't use that item this ismostly true for armors and weapons thisusually happens because the playercharacter does not have the minimumrequirement to use that weapon or armorspells are used as ammo and will not runout to use a spell you must equip astaff or a wand and the preferred spellmust be placed on your ammo slot on youroffhand incantations and prayers on theWatch at: 24:40 / 25:00other hand are slotted in below the itemslot bar and can be use anytime evenwithout a staff or a one elementalimbalance is displayed as a bar on topof your screen spells with the sameelement cannot be you successivelywithout any negative effects usingmultiple fire skills at once causes yourcharacter to receive damage same withWatch at: 25:00 / 25:20other elemental spells and incantationsif you plan on being a mage alwaysalternate spell so that your elementalimbalance can remain as slow as possibleyou can use the link of foreign sky ringto completely negate elemental imbalanceallowing you to use succeeding spots andin conditions of the same elementprayers and miracles are used much likeincantations if you plan on using themplace them on the slot under the atomWatch at: 25:20 / 25:40bar of your inventory inventoryinventory - handing can still parry andblock although not as effective we justcan use swords - just use magic scalingweapons - handing a weapon will alsoincrease your total equipment load themore you get damaged the more woundedyou can get one thing is a specialdebuff that gives your hotbar andstamina a short cap you can't regenerateWatch at: 25:40 / 26:00this point always use one stone guidefor every sanctuary that you visit notonly does this boost up item drop ratebut it also allows you to fast travel tosanctuaries that also has a stone guidefast traveling without a stone guide canonly be done if you have the Adamcalling horn holding r2 while on aladder lets you slide down it I don'tfully know the right key for keyboardsWatch at: 26:00 / 26:20or any other controller so at theskinners guide starting to go uh-huhalways try to attack a chest beforeopening it if you played a lot of RPGsyou should only know what this means ifnot well you'll find out if you wantequip all your armor pieces you canperform the naked leap now I've saidthis before but if you find this wellWatch at: 26:20 /

  1. 4:43 I respectfully disagree. If you're new to this kind of experience, totally go for the pauper cause you won't know what to invest in for some time, and light armor is imo better than heavy, especially at the start of the game. Just my opinion.

  2. This is a veeery comprehensive how to play. Just starting the game and feels good to have a heads up of what to expect and experiment on. Really like your vid and style. Was hooked even if it was 30 mins. This deserves more like in my opinion!

  3. i just passed passed the tree man boss.. and i have level of 50 but yet i still can't use spells.. they show X …. in dark souls.. each spell it shows you the requirements like how much faith or strength you should have to be able to use them but here i don't know how much i should have to be able to use them.. also some weapons still shows X and i can't see how much should have to be able to use the.. so what do you suggest?

  4. Thx for your guide man! Been a long time fan of 2d games and dark souls type games and I found this to be one of the best beginners guides to a game I’ve ever found

  5. Hey. Nice vid…but when you said metroidvania+ dark souls + casltevania…that was a mistake right? Cause isnt Metroidvania already a combination of Metroid and Castlevania?

  6. Fantastic video man, I’m surprised it doesn’t have more views! You should have more confidence in yourself 🙂 from one youtuber to another: you’re really good at making videos and you deserve lots of exposure!

  7. really nice video and your editing is entertaining :3 One thing though, the game does not require any grinding. You will probably be overleveled if you don't lose any of the souls you get from bosses and exploring.

  8. lmao btw hello was right not comistat and you speak english very well compared to a lot of non english speakers! i would assume you lived in north america by the way you speak!

  9. Hello I’m sorry I’m confused I bought the game today and played for 5 hours I love it but I don’t find the places to level up I only end up in the place with a candle and I can’t level up from there I lost more than 30k salt is there something to do with the candle thing or do I have to go backward to level up and then continue to the next zone thanks for the reply in advance

  10. thanks for the vid, i subbed and i'm looking forward to more of your content…you provided a lot of useful info, your editing skills are great. i also liked the low volume music choices. just overall highly enjoyed this, it was nice of you to make it for us and i appreciate it greatly!

  11. Just bought this last night and only played about 20 mins. Seems cool but hard. Im hoping it catches me and i end up liking it cuz sometimes watching someone play a game and actuallu playing it are 2 different experiences. So hopefully i grabs my attention and keeps it

  12. For some reason whenever I get hit I lose max hp no I don’t mean I take damage but my actual maximum hp Is lowered until I rest at a sanctuary or die does anybody know why this is happening?

  13. I’m waaay to good at this game

    Just a P.S. to mage users after NG+ your a walking paper that can be blitz with one hit I’ve made it to NG+7 ( last one ) with dark magic and exploits , so yeahhhhh I’ve got like 5 characters (11 total ) cuz of Xbox but yeah I definitely love this game along with other games ska studios have made lol

  14. Hey, just wanted to pop in to let you know that I found this video very comprehensive without being too spoilery! Thanks for helping me get back into my savegame 🙂

  15. Bro, the "vania" in Metroidvania is literally Castlevania; it's Metroid + Castlevania as a genre. Saying Metroidvania and then adding Castlevania is redundant.
