ymfah, a popular YouTuber with over 970,000 subscribers, created a video explaining how this is possible. Complete Dark Souls 3 without ever walking. The challenge, in addition to a lot of patience, requires the use of specific weapons, skills, and exploration strategies.
First of all, let’s decide which one Basic rules: The Dark Souls 3 character cannot be made to walk, i.e. it cannot use movement inputs (left analog stick or WASD, not even other keys by reset of course). Everything else is allowed, but this rule creates “problems”. First of all, it is not possible to make rolls that require the direction of movement. Stairs that require “up” and “down” movement can also not be used.
Before we get to this point, the problem is simply Transfer. The solution from the ymfah is to use a short weapon, the knives, which allow you to move a step forward with each shot. In addition, they have the ability to move quickly which allows them to make a movement in the direction they are facing. To change direction, you can use the enemies lock or bow, which when aiming changes the direction the Dark Souls 3 character faces.
The video is too long to comment on every move and every combat strategy. On average, a character should be Exploit some “tricks” Like range poisoning to eliminate specific enemies without making them aggressive, or using spells and rings to become almost completely invisible and silent and defeat specific enemies. In addition, Dark Souls 3 allows you to overcome a fatal fall if, by activating the anti-fall magic, you exit the game quickly upon hitting the ground. Instead of going back to the fire, restarting the game shows you where you fell, but are still alive.
Also, it can be used special skill From an arc to strike certain bosses from outside the fog, so as to eliminate them safely or, in one case, block their AI and be able to enter and defeat the enemy without their reaction. One of the most difficult passages connects to the profane capital and the upper part of Lothric – both areas in Dark Souls 3 require the use of a ladder to reach. In this case, ymfah, in conjunction with a second player who should be an invader version, uses a bug that – said frivolously – removes gravity from the player and allows him to use environment polygons to shift his position vertically and then start flying and overcoming certain areas, until you defeat a boss from underground.
Youtube Don’t beat all bosses, especially the ones in the first DLC since there are way too many stairs, but overall I was able to beat most of Dark Souls 3 without unleashing any movement entry. This is a remarkable feat, both in practice and because it required extensive research to find viable strategies.
