Well nearly complete…
With the help of the awesome informative fextralife wiki Game Progress Route, and grinding blood in the lecture building, I made it to the Wet Nurse Wet Nurse.
I had a memorable experience of being joined by 2 other Hunters after I’d beaten up the Brain of Mensis, after I’d ‘made contact’… which seemed to take far too long, I thought I was doing something wrong.
Daykoh99 & JYNXtheDJ joined me, only for us to be invaded before we had the opportunity to step through the mist to face Mergo’s Wet Nurse. A Hunter at level 254, wielding weapons I’d not seen before began to kick our arses.
JYNXtheDJ didn’t manage to survive the battle, and the cheeky invader sculled many blood vials to heal his epic health bar; but we did eventually triumph. What a great feeling of success, and we’d yet to face the Nurse.
JYNXtheDJ joined us again, I think I may have summoned another NPC to join us (? although my memory may be hazy from so many boss battles), and we stepped into battle.
While the other Hunters attacked I circled around the back of the Nurse, using a level 8 Ludwig Holy Blade pimped with Bolt Paper. When she cloned and drew in the fog I followed Daykoh99 around the level circumference, then we all piled back on when we could see who to attack.
The battle was within a couple of minutes, and each of us survived, with more bows and curtsies exchanged 🙂
So then I find myself back in the burning Hunter’s Dream with 3 One Third of Umbilical Cord’s in my stash… but do I want to finish the game just yet?
I picked up the DLC just before I started this recent completion quest, I do want to see completion, I never thought I’d make it this far… but I’m hooked again!
Those new weapons are calling me, and I have an inkling that if I finish the Bloodborne story now that I’ll never see the DLC in NG+ difficulty.
What a great problem to have eh? 🙂
