Dark Souls II Playthrough Ep 5: The Lost Bastille, Soul Farming P2, & Ruin Sentinels

The Need Humanity playthrough series looks to introduce newer players to Dark Souls II, help them with general mechanics, find items, and help with bosses. GameZone’s own Andrew trudges through  through Drangleic, derp around bonfires, and kills some baddies in the process.

In the fifth of the series, Rei II and I start our trek into the The Lost Bastille. Here, we find a very interesting NPC by the name of Lucatiel. For some reason, this lady interests me very much. That, and I’m always tempted to murder her for her hat – so feathery. I stop the adventure to show a new farming path which is grossly beneficial to kick start your character in power. After leaving, it’s time to take on the difficult Ruin Sentinels – all three of them.
