So should I fight Paarl now or when I circle back around to this place later?
Fight away. He's not hard, and if he gives you trouble, use fire paper. It literally melts its health away and it also disrupts its electric attack.
All the weapons are viable, and the axe is no exception. There are really not "better or worse" weapons; it's just a matter of preference.I am about to tackle the witch , playing significant portion with the saw cleaver until I got the hunter axe which is excellent. Bought Ludwig holly blade which is a decent weapon but reverted back to the axe . I don’t why but the axe feels much more hard hitting and is excellent for crowd control. My question is can I finish the game with the axe and so invest in upgrading it or should I start looking for better weapons ( I own the DLC BTW )
The first time I played I used the axe exclusively, almost always in two-handed mode. Every other weapon felt like a downgrade.I am about to tackle the witch , playing significant portion with the saw cleaver until I got the hunter axe which is excellent.

Haha, same here. I don’t notice frame pacing and chromatic aberration doesn’t bug me, so BB is almost flawless in my eyes.
You monster!In the central Yharnam main gate, after the clinic stand at a spot where you can see a ton of buildings drawn in the distance. Then slowly pan the camera around your character. It's even worse if you try it after playing a 60fps game for a continued length of time
Agreed. I returned to BB after playing Let It Die, which runs at 60fps, and while it felt sluggish at first, it didn't take long for the feeling to pass.
I just beat the witch of Hemwick and I'm grinding/farming to face Amelia.
Just don't kill the final boss. However, if you keep the end boss of the Nightmare of Mensis, Mergo's Wet Nurse, alive too, you'll get a bit more dialogue from the doll as you play through the DLC.
Yeah, Sekiro definitely runs better than BB on base PS4. I played BB for a bit the other day and even panning the camera around is jank-city.Playing through this for the first time since I finished the DLC upon release. I killed Father Gascoigne on my first attempt which was a real delight as on my original playthrough he took a long time to beat. I'm absolutely in love with the game again. However, the frame rates are a lot worse than remember.
I enjoyed befriending him, then immediately climbing down and killing a beast. The anguish of betrayal is a fine punishment for the sniping bastard.Managed to befriend Djura tonight. Pretty cool! Hypogean Gaol was a bit tough immediately after BSB, but I managed in the end. I used a Hunter Mark for Paarl, because he seemed a bit too hard at this point.
I'll return to Djura tomorrow and see if he is standing at the edge of the tower again so I can push him off. I got the gesture, now to get his set and make it easier to loot the first part of Old Yharnam.
Haha, nice. I hope he stands with his back to the stairs so I can set him up for a visceral.
If you don't go full Bloodtinge is not worth it. There's no weapon that scales with both at the same time, just one or the other depending on the form, and Bloodtinge form will always be better with weapons like Chikage.I completed my first playthrough of Bloodborne about a month ago, then moved on to Dark Souls 1 and 3. After multiple playthroughs of those games I felt like going back to Yharnam, honestly much sooner than I expected. I felt really done with the game after I finished it and didn't think I would replay it anytime soon. But the itch has returned already, so here we are...
First playthrough I did Strength/Arcane, so it only makes sense this one will be Skill/Bloodtinge (with an emphasis on the former, though).
It might not be the best from a min-max point of view, but my main goal is to try out as many weapons as possible. My previous Strength/Arcane build let me use one half of the game's weapons and now I want to use the other half.
