The Dark Souls series has become quite famous for its challenging difficulty level, and if you have ever heard of the series there are gamers scattered across the internet that post up montages of death to showcase just how difficult Dark Souls can be. But for one gamer, he uploaded a video on May 3rd that makes Dark Souls 3 look like a cakewalk.
Case in point, this video uploaded by YouTuber kaseius shows five minutes of him dying over and over again in various ways.
I will admit, I have never played any of the Dark Souls games, so I’m not entirely sure how difficult this game is, so you could chalk it up to that particular player just being bad at the game. However, there are thousands of players out there that share the sentiment that the game is way too difficult, causing a great many players to rage quit in frustration. And then you have the elite gamers that take Dark Souls seriously and learn all the nooks and crannies about the game to master it, taking the difficulty to a whole new level.
YouTuber TolomeoR did just that, making it to the Nameless King without leveling up his character, which means he remained at level one to make it to this daunting boss. The scene at the end of the video even shows his stats to prove that he is indeed only at level one. Now, most players will admit that the Nameless King is considered to be one of the most challenging bosses in the game, but that didn’t seem to bother TolomeoR at all.
To make the challenge even more difficult, he defeated the boss without ever blocking, rolling, or parrying… not even once, and he survived to defeat the boss. The best part about this? He recorded the entire battle live in the video down below.
However, TolomeoR did get a few items along the way to help him out.
According to PC Gamer, TolomeoR went into battle without wearing any armor whatsoever, but they say that he did have the Priestess Ring, which allowed him to equip Astora’s Straight Sword, along with the Cloranthy ring, and Flynn and Lloyd’s Sword rings, allowing him to be able to build a set that would allow him to deal out the damage that he needed to take down the Nameless King.
The combination of not having on any armor while at the same time not using any defensive maneuvers at all — except for running around like a mad man, is what made his feats so impressive. Majority of the comments in the YouTube comments section were also quite impressed with these skills.
One viewer asked TolomeoR how long it took him to accomplish this feat, and he responded saying that it took him far too many hours, ranging between 5-6 hours to accomplish what he did in the video.
When other players in the comment section challenged him saying that the new Dark Souls 3 was too easy, TolomeoR countered saying that other Dark Souls players in the past had accomplished the exact same feats for the original Dark Souls as well, and that the challenge is not impossible if you know what you are doing and have the patience not to rush into battle with wild swings.
What do you guys think? Do you think the new Dark Souls is a lot easier than the previous games? Are you impressed with his ability to defeat the Nameless King without armor, blocking, rolling or parrying? Comment below and share your thoughts.
