I thought it was kind of stupid that you had to sign in to vote, and that shield submissions are region-locked.
Come on FROM, guys in America have good kite shield designs too!  Tongue

Anyway, many of these shields are veritable works of art, maaaan.  But alot of them don't seem to fit in with the games art style at all.  That's more FROM's fault though for not really giving any concrete specifications.

That shield is badass, Gabriel! Upvoted on Reddit and I hope you win. Smiley

Started my second playthrough with a Wanderer. Going for DEX and a little bit of INT, I think, for sorceries. Boy, your second time through is so different. So many bosses I thought were incredibly tough I can beat on my first try now.

This is not directly related to gameplay discussion, but I just got my shield design approved for their contest things.



I'd really appreciate any votes! You just have to be in the top 30 to make the shortlist.

Voting is here: https://apps.facebook.com/darksoulsii/?gallery&action=view&id=2804

I also posted a thread here - I'd appreciate upvotes there as well! http://www.reddit.com/r/darksouls/comments/1dcaf5/my_shield_design_got_approved/

(Yeah you have to to sign into the dumb app thing to be able to vote... It's stupid but all it is a gallery where you can votes on the designs.)
Nice, congrats, it seems to be approved already. Only the hand looks like it is placed over the surface separately, not build in.

dark souls 1 also has 4 user designed shields too (sanctus, bloodshield, effigy shield, black iron greatshield) and they blend in so well with the rest that i actually just had to google which ones they are lol.

I'm not such a fan of the custom shields in Dark Souls, they could be better. None of them are really that fantastic. Sanctus is too brightly colored with an ugly (IMO) design, Bloodshield has a clip-arty blood drop in the center, Effigy is a straight-up HR Giger rip-off, and Black Iron is a bit bland. There are a lot of shields in this contest, including the one above, that could beat out the Dark Souls shields easily.

Well, that explains why Sanctus and the Blood Shield are so goofy looking.  Cheesy

Black Iron Shield is nice in a practical sort of way, the Effigy shield could have been nice if the model wasn't so chunky.  It looks kind of like a flattened kettle bell.  Tongue


You know I like how this game continues to amaze me.  For the first time ever I've tried making a pure physical character, and I am in awe of how powerful a +10 Mace is.  Now that I've bumped up my STR to 30 for a big shield, it's two-shotting giant gold knights when two-handed.

This is my giant clubbing stick.  Cool


edit:
Oh no, upon closer examination Black Iron Shield is dumb too.  It had me going until I noticed it was caked in blood for no particular reason.

Speaking of blood, it would be cool if you actually could get temporarily bloody similar to Dragon Age if you slew enemies, but I guess the game was never really that bloody anyway. I would love if the armor and weapons visually reflected their damage, though. For example, one with durability 10 would look all busted up.

Never realized a pure STR character was that powerful. Makes me want to make one now =P

Hey, question - if I downloaded the DLC, can I access it even in a game I started before I downloaded the DLC? I'm on Xbox.

Please don't spoil how to access the DLC, though. Smiley

It seemed pretty obscure on how to access the DLC place, do any NPCs give you hints I can't remember?

it's very obscure if you're trying to actually figure it out as a puzzle but it's not THAT hard to just stumble across it (a couple of my friends did)

Thanks for the DLC help, dudes! I'll see if I can figure it out.
