    Don't believe everything you read on the internet, retard. Plenty of people have handled it just fine, in this very thread, without making it to level 100 first. I handled it just fine without even beating Grigori and getting my dragon forged eq. I just had to switch off my split damage daggers to a sword I could purchase as an Assassin and that was enough until I got some lvl 1 or lvl 2 Cursed Weapons that turned into daggers and dragon forged them.

    Basically you're just a whiny bitch making sweeping statements based on your very limited experience and very very, very, very, very, very poor gaming skills.

    It's one of the most fun things you can do in the game.
    Solo BBI as soon as you can access it.

    Basically, you are some random Codex idiot, who tries too hard to be edgy.

    Meanwhile, I am out there completing games on the hard difficulties by the dozen, over and over.

    So don't get so upset, kiddo. Porky is just better than you. :smug:

    Oh yes we all saw your list of a half dozen games, 3 of which were Souls games which have no difficulty setting. But you haven't beaten Dragon's Dogma until you beat BBI twice and of course finish the main quest.

    I don't die to bosses like Pinwheel. I also beat Dragon's Dogma solo as well, but keep telling yourself you're the best gamer on this site. You need that kind of delusion to cope with who you are.

    There's a bunch of these, but here's one at random.

    Oh, look I can do these do, and even better!

    Grimdork upon seeing Porky win repeatedly:

    [​IMG]


    That was just a quick sampler, you village idiot, why would I sit there and list ALL of the hundreds of games I've completed? Eh?

    Lol, ok buddy... Some of us aren't NEETs like you, you know? What kind of a retard would think you have to finish a game twice to complete it? Oh, that's right, you...

    That's what you say. But for all we know, maybe you died to him 30 times. Maybe 40. See, I am honest, and just admit when I die or struggle with some fight or whatever, but see-through idiots like you just act like they are perfect, while being very insecure about all the shit that's wrong with them. Tough cookies bre.

    Lol, you might be even dumber than Grimdork above. So your counter-argument to the top google results suggesting level 100+ is that some guy made a video about how he broke BBI? So using that logic, do you advise Dark Souls players to fight everything naked at level 1, cause you know, some guy did it? Hahahah.

    As a huge fan of DD ( it 's one of my favorite games) i can agree that the damage formula is retarded. I could see this with my ranger in BBI where multiple arrows attacks, even if cumulative damage was high, did no damage to bosses, because each arrow damage did not pass defense threeshold. While attacks like brutal arrow did significant damage. not to talk about the same multiple arrow skills like tenfold arrow, wich were normally 0 dmg skill against bbi bosses, with the addition of explosive arrows or whatever became super uber op. I used that against the last boss (second form) of bbi and he just vanished from existence in 15 seconds, leaving me stolen of a final boss challenge. Generally speaking , damage dormula and damage /defense balancing in DD was a mess

    It's good that you are laughing. Probably made it easier to run back to Pinwheel's room 39 times. :D

    I think it's fine as a cinematic once-over, but if you do it more than once it is pretty annoying and lame.

    That doesn't mean anything though. Some people finish the story at level 30, some at 100+.

    And some people, like yourself, don't finish them before suffering endless butthurt.

    Actually, my point was that I finished it at an earlier level than most, making BBI even more annoying to tackle without further grinding. But I suppose that went over your head. Carry on.

    Oh, that's my mistake then. Seems like you got butthurt after killing Grigori, not before. My bad.

    Uhh so I was one of the Codexers who went Bitterblack at lvl 10 and did the whole from rags to riches thing there. Not sure what to say sneaking and cheesing bosses to progress into a deeper dungeon was fun when you can pull it off. Not saying its for everyone.
    It same as running to that gate where the merchant sold some high-tier gear. Nobody says you need to do it at start, but hey if you got dosh, why not?
    Besides if you made it through the dark mines and night forest, the griffin, hydra, the cyclops the goblins and other mobs why not enjoy the spoils?

    I love DD and have played it since release on PS3 (that version was shit because the framerate was often sub-20), but I'm one of the few fans who isn't crazy about BBI. I much prefer the base game.

    However, I do understand its appeal and why most people think it's the best part of the game. It's a great dungeon crawl.

    Yeah, same for me on the PS3. I think BBI is a well designed dungeon and it's nice to dive in a bit to grind for a few extra levels, but I didn't feel so drawn in that I needed to complete it. I explored a bit and had some fun and then decided to go back and complete the game so I could retire with my true love of Mercedes Marten...

    and still got stuck with the duchess. Come on game, if you are going to stick me with a romance option I didn't want, you could at least have stuck me with Madeleine.

    The extra enemy variety was what made that area. If they had those enemies placed throughout the main game and it balanced better, it would have been great. Because the base game pretty much becomes piss easy after level 30s, and there are just the same orcs, harpies, and wolves everywhere. That's why a sequel has so much potential to be great because they could keep those same mobs, and add a few more, they just need to build an open world with it all in it.

    I'd also say the mood and atmosphere of BBI added a lot to it. As fun as it is to wander around the countryside in the base game, BBI is a very tight, focused experience that was done well. Besides, even though it's easy mode, using ricochet shot cheese in BBI's tight tunnels and corridors was hilarious. Shooting death around the corner or just repeatedly nailing him with bounces and watching the poor bastard melt. Good times.

    So if me saying that the Grigori fight is poorly balanced for the Fighter vocation, because they have to climb all over a flying monster with ADD that can't sit still for 2 seconds, as opposed to say archers or mages who can just shoot at his G spot from the ground counts as being "butthurt", what doesn't count as being butthurt to a moron like you? Do you just run through every game humming "happy happy joy joy" to yourself and pretend to love every single feature and aspect of everything? Or is there some line where it's ok to criticize or point out some aspect of the game you don't like? Asking for a friend.
