RE: What are you playing?
To anybody playing Fallout 4 on PC: I reinstalled FO4 to play it again, and now Downtown Boston lags like shit; again, like it did on launch. I'm having framerate drops down to 30 fps. which is pissing me off. If anybody else is having the same problems, please tell me. It can't be my GPU's fault since it's a GTX 980, just no chance.

14 spells in Dark Souls to acquire.
A simple matter of killing the Fume Knight, playing the game through twice more and farming 29 more sunlight medals.
OH and beat Vendrick for that separate achievement.

1000/1000 we will get there.

RE: What are you playing?
Mayor 'Murder you if you look at me funny' Stukos has a very, very strange predilection for splints. She is constantly demanding the splints be made... And then demanding they not be exported. Apparently they are upset that a criminal has not been punished yet as well. What criminal? I have no idea...
Splints probably didn't get made on time and she wants to blame somebody, because nobility.

I'm really starting to consider finding a way to arrange an 'unfortunate accident'...

On that note my dwarf, the Baroness, has a weird thing with sceptres along the same lines as Stukos's splints. It is rather annoying economically, because those things could fetch a good price in trade. Not that it matters, since my craftdwarves basically produce nothing but masterpiece tat; Jdog and Momsby endlessly churn out more and more rock crafts of high value and a dwarf without a tta name keeps making absurd-quality bone tat.

Oh, before I forget, Bows and Arrows, Claspedfields' legendary bowyer was struck by a few mood and went to make a bow. I wish she went mad and made something other than a crossbow, as she was already legendary in that craft.

Why yes, that crossbow does indeed have an image of itself engraved upon it. In silver.

Speaking of self-images, Ato has joined Mark in the 'engraving self engraving' club.

The Fortress also now has a fairly formidable military. The marksdwarves are all being lazy gits, but the melee dwarves are immensely dedicated to their craft. In fact, we have 3 Swordmasters and 5 Spearmasters. They are virtually peerless in the use of their weapons. And thanks the the danger room I set up, many of them are legendary dodgers, shield and armour users.
What is a danger room? Well I have it set up as a small 1x3 room with an armour stand occupying one tile which sets the room as a training barracks, and the other two occupied by two spear traps loaded with 10 training spears each, which are attached to a lever which is virtually always being pulled, causing the dwarves training in the room to be constantly dodging and blocking the raising spears. Because they are training spears, they can't really harm anything other than animals which manage to somehow get into the room. We have lost a number of cats and a few wardogs to them. Though the wardogs usually just get some bruises and go vomiting on things for a while.

Unfortunately, the military is still outfitted with purely copper gear, which is frankly garbage in terms of equipment. I would make them bronze gear, but I have not found any tin... Not do I have access to iron to produce steel. Going to have to start getting the Dwarven caravans to inundate me with steel and iron bars, instead of food.

Aside from going through booze like there is is a shortage crisis, the dwarves really want for nothing when it comes to nutrition, particularly thank's to Rev and his constant production of masterpiece dishes.

A lot of the dwarves are upset at wearing tattered clothing now. I'm trying to get a textile industry fully up and running, but it's slow going. Getting out whatever clothing I can get Ferdinand to make, and I've detailed a few dwarves to specialise solely in clothes-making to try to speed things up. I don't need any more tantrums. Last one led to a dwarf spending months on the operating table into Stark decided to do his job (I appointed him Chief medical Dwarf because at the time he was the only dwarf with any medical skills). Said dwarf now appears to be walking around naked while he recovers; his inventory shows only sutures and blood in various locations across his spine.

Oh right, the ghost of EA rose and started screwing with dwarves by moving their private clothing around. It seems none of my dwarves want to put the corpses of fallen in the newly established crypt. So I memorialised them with engraved slabs and she went away.
I liked her haunting more than that of Cilob the Rampager. In the lost time-line from one of the crashes, he rose again and started murdering dwarves in vengeance.
So, when did EA die? Hell if I know! Apparently she was killed by the dwarf who put a stop to Cilob... Maybe a stray bolt got her. No way for me to know that I am aware of.

RE: What are you playing?
So, Fume Knight, not that hard. Sir Alonne... fuck me and fuck this cock sucking inbred cunt munching twat.
This guy is fucking impossible. My spells, all of them, hexes, sorc, mirc, fire, they all do jack shit damage and my fucking halberd does fuck all as well. And the cunt has a million fucking health, I can't even get him down to half health. Makes the fume knight look like a pansy little bitch.

Sir Alonne is all about the dodge timing.

Protip: if you can kill him without him damaging you, you get to see a special animation.

RE: What are you playing?
I can dodge him well enough or block him, it's just he has so much health and I can't block or dodge him in the time it takes to kill him.
I'll have another crack tomorrow, I'll probably beat him first pop.

I mean at least I have a better shot now that I know not to summon the 2 NPCs who triple his health and double his damage all the while contributing sweet fuck all to the fight.
But still, he's friggin hard as tits.

If I remember correctly, my strategy was to shield up and strafe until he did a lunge-y attack, dodge it just before the hit could land, two-hand my best damage/speed sword for a few hits, stop before the animation finished to recover stamina and back away, then shield up again, and repeat.

Edit; I just looked up some strategies, and one decent one for a high Attunement and Faith build is to summon the two phantoms to aggro and damage Alonne while the player just sits back and uses Great Heal (among other healing miracles) when the phantoms are in trouble.

RE: What are you playing?
The issue with healing the phantoms is that they suck. Each one increases his health by 100% and increases his damage by a bit too.
It would take way too long to just heal them and let them kill him. I'd likely just run out of heals they're that bad. They barely gt him down 10% before they die and that's with me lobbing dark orbs at the mofo.

If I don't have any phantoms I do like 350 damage per hit (he has 10,000hp) so I have a better chance. I think I just gotta do the gyrm shield (I'd use havel but my strength is 27 so I can barely hold the gyrm shield by using the strength ring and havel requires 45 and I would farm the giant lord to get it up but each skill up now takes 300,000+ souls so it's just tedious. Gyrm does the trick anyway.) and just not get hit and killed.

For a low-strength build, you can easily just use the Drangleic shield. It has good stability for a Mid shield, and is way less weighty with 100% physical block. It should free up a ring slot for a Chloranthy Ring or Ring of Blades to up your damage potential. ... Unless you need the equipment ring for the rest of your gear too...
If you have the Defender's Shield, that surpasses the Drangleic decently. It's an Ornifex trade for the Throne Defender's soul.

RE: What are you playing?
Attention Dwarves of the Claspedfields' Militia; please stop growing attached to your equipment and naming it.

Remember that your gear is mere copper and thus not befitting to your station, existing purely as a stop-gap measure until ores befitting your kin are available, either through trade, or find and refinement.

Until such a time, this practise is not encouraged, and in fact, severely denounced, by your glorious and benevolent Overseer. So stop it. It's annoying.
