I couldn't have made this video alone - please support all of the collaborators listed in the description! Everyone brought their unique strengths to this episode, and I'm lucky to work with so many talented people!
Been waiting all week for this 🧡
I know it'll be fantastic as usual!
Thanks for everything guys :)
Thanks for watching everyone. This video was a true passion project, and the amazing support we receive from you keeps us inspired to create better videos with each installment in the PTC series. All I will say is that Ranni's video will be absolutely legendary. Any guesses as to how long it will be?
Please let it be 2 hrs+ I could listen to Vaati talk forever even if it was randomly generated AI gibberish!
Thanks for watching tho the video isn't up yet lol. Timing issue.
It's going to be 1 hour and 45 minutes, and come out in 32 years.
You really killed it. Vaati has always been high quality but you've been consistently raising the bar. Thank you so much for all your hard work.
@Pink F agreed. He could read the back of milk cartons and I'd be there.
Honestly I got respect for Darius. Bro was afflicted with basically Stage 6 cancer, AIDS, Arthritis, and Parkinson’s and after hearing what happened to his brother he hit us the the Vince Carter “ I GOT ONE MORE ME”
I agree with you but that ending really stabbed my gut. At least I recovered from the damage I had back then since most say that Fia was victorious anyway.
I hope the DLC explores the death stuff more in depth due to Miquella’s connection to Godwin
@Tom Bane Proof?
@Tom Bane pls send vid....ofc for research purposes
Nah I want Melina to chase the lord of frenzy
I wish it would allow us to help miqula get godwyns soul back
@Tom Bane thats some nasty SHIT....send me the link
Damn that Fia's Mist kill on D was absolutely brutal.
Thats what I said
It made me realise this was the evil ending
@Maarten Prys no the hell it isnt
@I_Wanna_Be_Canadian it’s an evil ending. Those who live in death literally wipe out villages💀
@I_Wanna_Be_Canadian Bros blinded by the debuff hugs Fia gives.
I don’t think it gets talked about much, but the voice acting in the Souls games is really great. That “Die! Die! Die!” That Devin says could’ve been generic screaming but the VA turned into a much more menacing threat, like an executioner raising the axe. Really drives the fanaticism home
You're right man! This game has an amazing cast.
Elden Ring's English language voice cast is an enormous step up from mediocrity of FromSoft's earlier localizations. I still wonder if the VAs for Darksouls 1 even had access to proper microphones.
@Maverick Titan i kind of like the slightly muffled voices from DS1 characters because it really sounds like they’re speaking behind a metal helmet
@Maverick Titan Idk wtf you're on about lmao. There was never any English "localization" for the voice acting. It's always been in English. FromSoft has used the same VA agency for nearly their entire Souls catalogue, and it's always been outstanding in every entry.
@Maverick Titan if you think there was an English localization then you clearly are new to from software games
You have to be one of the most talented content creators on this platform. Your dedication to detail in your videos, your cinematic ability, and the wonderful choreography of the fight scenes was impeccable. Great stuff as always VaatiVidya, you and your team did great!
keep the money for your family and food. u.s dollar is dead
@jason chow If it's dead then who cares about $9.99 its nothing right?
@jason chow how is it dead?
@jason chow Seeing as it is still in use, it is obviously not dead.
BRO CAN WE PLEASE TALK ABOUT THE CINEMATOGRAPHY IN THIS MASTERPIECE I legitimately lost it when godskin apostle kicked in with the duel. Continue making art please.
I love the lore and the stories in Elden ring. They are so good and are so intertwined with each other. I just wish I didn’t have to watch Clip-Share videos to understand it.
Clip-Share videos are just faster. If you decide to spend time going through item descriptions and NPC dialogue, you'd be able to piece it together yourself. it just takes time, but if you don't have that time or just have things you'd rather spend your time on, that's why Clip-Share videos exist.
I showed my 60 year old mother this video, who has never played a single game in her life, and even she said the visuals and storytelling of this video were fantastic. Hopefully she's open to watching more of your content in the future :)
is she single?
@Young Donald No sorry.
The contempt with which the Tarnished destroys D after he kills Fia is both satisfying and terrifying
Never understood why ppl hate on d he seems a rather good fellow doing his best for his order and his home, i suppose simps will ree at anything that threatens their "wifu"
@Hevno think about it from the perspective of the tarnished: guy wearing a former friend's armor shows up and kills the woman that had helped you realize the plight of those that live in death, as well as being a companion to you all game.
@Hevno D twins are fanatics, they were rejected by all but golden order so they defend the views of golden order like fanatics would by executions and crucifixions.
People who live in death are not even bad, they were simple villagers or nobles that were burried in the roots of the tree, hoping to be reincarnated one day, it's not their fault that the tree roots were corrupted by Godwyn's corpse.
Fault lies with Golden order taking the rune of death out of the Elden Ring, meanwhile D brothers see people who can't die and blame them instead of the order that caused them to exist in the first place.
the ppl were already living and reincarnating without an issue even after the rune of death was removed, like you said it is not their fault that they were corrupted by poor godwyns death roots, but it is also not godwyns fault nor the golden order, if you want to blame someone for why they came to be it would be the vile wench ranni for doing what she did and causing all this torment.
Those living in death are unnatural they are not living yet they are not dead their existence is simply Pain (I am very sure those wandering skeletons are not happy).
Since they can no longer reincarnat through the erdtree the golden order seem to just want to put them down and give them a true death.
That is why I defend the twins unless you and the undead all across the land were happily making love to each other I am sure you noticed all of them (save for fia) are aggressive and dangerous and the twins and those like them work to put an end to the damage caused by ranni
Wow... this is the first one that have actually brought me to tears. Death is the companion that never truly leaves in my profession and I can't help but to empathize with Fia's ambition.
You sound like an amazing fellow! Thanks for the nice Fia comment
Beside's Ranni's questline, Fia's questline also felt the most fulfilling to me, provided you don't miss the most of it. It's a very important questline that bleeds into Ranni's, and is probably the saddest one of them all.
What do you do for a living? Hehe
Really? This video made you sit there and cry? 😂 I get that it's an incredible game and a great video, but literal tears? C'mon man.
@Manaconda Hammersteel It's okay to cry if the feelings allow it. I admire your toughness but you should understand by the way he wrote what he has been through watching a story about death.
You and your collaborators have raised the bar by a significant margin. Feeling privileged to be a part of this community right now.
Yeah within the first minute I could tell that this was going to be special.
You ain't a part of this community. Just cause you just started playing souls games at elden ring doesn't mean you're part
@Ramrod bLDM oh lord 🙄
@Ramrod bLDM least gatekeeping souls “veteran”
To tell the truth, though I know Ranni's ending will be the last ending explained, I would still love to see Goldmask's storyline and the Golden Order Fundamentalists rendered in Prepare to Cry.
Brother Corhyn's blind faith and Goldmask's struggle against a Golden Order that won't change until his death both come together to tell a tragic story.
Goodness malaketh’s voice actor. Need some more credit. Wow he’s really good.
The quality of this series is phenomenal. Great work guys!!
38:56 The music is swelling, the story is captivating, Maliketh is gracefully dancing through the air like he has wings carrying him through the fight...
" _Ha_ , you bonked him with the flippy sword~"
Yep, that's Elden Ring!
Godwyn's spear being an homage to the Dragonslayer Spear was a really nice touch. Good to see my favorite character living on, a decade after his first appearance.
If we maintain this current trend of video lengths, Ranni's story is looking to be nearly an hour long! Strap in boys, it's gonna be a wild one.
oh god totally lol
I hope so. Or longer even.
Make it 3 and Release it in theaters i would go
My wife deserves it
25:15 I feel for Maliketh, it’s painful to be betrayed by someone you’re so loyal to….I’ve been there….
This is truly a masterpiece
Holy hell, I'm actually speechless. The Prepare To Cry videos for Dark Souls 1 are a huge reason why I became such a big fan of these games. And now that you have a budget, the quality has just gone through the roof. Amazing work. I just got shivers down my spine, watching this on my laptop at the library.
Thank you for all that you do and made possible.
as soon as I have coin to spare again, I will gladly support this endeavor! these - I don't wann say videos, I wanna say movies, are incredible! digestable for my friends and family to whom I could not properly explain why 'that strange game where you die all the time' makes me eyes so wet. thank you Vaati, thank you mispap, thank you John, Xavier, Aether & Chaos, Sebastian, Quelaag and SmoughTown. You have created a true masterpiece of a series! I hunger and thirst for many more to come!
that honestly make me think on how good of a being godwin must have been
dude has a homie so loyal he was fighting DEATH on a dream/alter dimension just to protect his friend
The detail of the player character using different weapons and spells related to death throughout their journey in the video is incredible. It's as if they're examining, studying, exploring the different forms of death, as a Death Philosopher.
I wish this game let you have real effects on game play from which side you pick like what was shown around 35:00 by siding with those of living death you had them come out of sources of it to aid you and maybe you spread it as you went on etc.
@Roman von ungern-sternberg I understand why you'd want an in-game effect, but as a matter-of-fact, this is an RPG. It lets you have fun making a build and stylizing it with a story. Yes, having the dead enemies not attack you much later in the game as you align yourself with them is interesting, but it would make the gameplay restricting. You're supposed to help create the story too, don't let the game do all the heavy lifting in the department of imagination.
@Han Solo (but I'm dead) the r in rpg stands for roll your roll effects the world, I felt this way back in dark souls as well. How much replay value would it add if your choices had real consequences? Both relatively instant ones like that faction aiding you and long term ones like the world being effected by your last play through helping one side? I know Iam not crazy when I talk about this since I swear a dynamic world reacting to your choices used to be fairly common.
I mean even bioshock had a little of this, I never felt like a better person than when I spared a woman who looked after my daughter and got her to second guess the Karen cult leader who tried to take full custody. She couldn’t call off “the family” and their bushwhack but she sent me some drones for back up and warned me. Little things like that really take things to another level.
“You had me under a gun... and yet you just walk away? No monster alive turns the other cheek. No monster does that. A thinking man does that. “
@Roman von ungern-sternberg Beyond how mind breakingly complicated it would be to do a world with this level of detail be everchanging in regards of the player completing certain quests...
There is an issue with map management, quest overlap and such.
If you change the world due to this quest, then you have to do the same for that of the age of frenzied flame, age of stars and such. You can do many of these at a time, and all of that going on would be a bit of a mess.
That and Deathroot is an essentially slow burning effect. It need not be automatic.
@Pedro Miret eh an untold amount of time passes between new game and new game plus
Holy wow, that fight with D at the end was freaking epic.
C'était absolument incroyable 👌👌
I forgot that Fortissax still fought on in Fia's dream, it's a small detail that i've forgotten since i haven't played in a couple of months
Really convinces me that the DLC will be in Miquella's dream, especially since i also believe it's related to Godwyn
The script, the visuals, the presentation, the audio, everything about these videos has pushed the quality of in-depth storytelling to new heights. Tremendous props to everyone who works on these. It's absolutely beautiful to watch and I am enraptured by these videos. I am beyond excited to see the Age of Stars ending video when it comes out! Love your videos as always Vaati
It seems no matter how high you and your partners raise the bar, you still find a way to raise it again. An absolutely captivating story, composed and told perfectly. The Fortissax battle in particular was jaw-dropping, I cannot believe that fight could be so choreographed.
The cinematography in this video was truly stunning, huge props to Mispap1
and the soundtrack too. This channel gets better and better, amazing
bro video quality is insane, the storytelling combined with the footage just make it perfect
This game is such a deep work of art. The fact that there's been this much room for attention to detail and depth of explanation. Still it's crazy to think that if this weren't for this channel it would be really hard for us to fully digest and appreciate that art. I hope they keep kicking ass with DLC and sequels, either way can't wait to see what FS does next.
2 minutes in and it’s already the best video i have seen in decades
There’s so much talent in the world, it’s crazy I didn’t get a single drop. Truly a masterpiece… great work
One of the most beautifully written and performed stories of Elden Ring, and you just elevated it to the next level.
Hahaha now u can pay to have your comment highlighted xD
Dat intro, right?
The questline of Maliketh aka Gurank, D' and his brother, I feel they were meant to be connected much more.
But as with all FromSoft games, the dev's had to cut a fair share when the release-date _death'line_ approached. 😏
Nice to see that Vaati does not forget to show how closely these questline's relate in theme.
@Jeetkun Jo Yeah, right? I didn’t even realize that until I saw Vaati liked my comment 😂
@Jeetkun Jo bro whats wrong with supporting the high quality content and getting a highlighted comment. its his money, whats it to u?
@Enis Karaman some would say it's bad to be a paypig, save that money for your family, don't spend $ simping for e-celebs, that sort of thing.
This is some of the best work iv ever seen put into a lore video
Why does this not have MORE LIKES! THIS WAS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! I absolutely enjoyed this. I appreciate all the hard work and effort you and your team put in
I understand there were some liberties taken (rather, music added or tapered in)
But man Elden Ring truly has a stellar sound track.
Didn’t think this would be as good as The Frenzied Flame “movie” (maybe favorite so far)
But damn…fine work.
Vaati, it’s always a pleasure. Thank you m8, & those you ever collab with👍
Might as well start a whole movie studio already, delivering videos with this quality! Nothing short of amazing!
You've always been a bonfire for this community. Maybe even *the* Bonfire, and it's so fitting that your works now include so many more others that have a love for these twisted little worlds
and their tragic and heroic characters. Thanks for all the years Vaati and for stoking the flames of lore for both new and old members of the audience. Your recent uploads feel like a revitalization and it'll be great to see what you all do with the DLC.
That Fortissax battle was incredibly well done. This entire video rules.
I agree, even kept it accurate by denying him his second phase LOL
@Tyler Bryant they absolutely did him dirty
Him and Gransax
A characters very important got RESKINNED MODEL FROM EVERY DAMN REGULAR ANCIENT DRAGON?
Where did "the six years length and the biggest budget ever" go to ?
@Menou Ba sorry, but fortisax isn't a reskin, while similar, it has many differences from other ancient dragons, like lanseax.
@Matteo Passi you are in the game community
No matter what do you say they are going to say that you are right despite being WRONG
he is a reskin
Him and his sister
Both are and they do all the same things
A mili different in color or move doesn't make him unique or different nor "nOt A rEsKiN"
And also Gransax is a reskin
@Menou Ba You said it yourself, they are brother and sister, it's normal they look alike, and again, it's not a reskin, or at least, not a bad one. Do you want an example of a reskin? The Blue Smelter Demon, of DS II
That was insane, thank you 🥺💖
It would be nice to have a perfect order ending video too! This one was very good 😭
32:16 The melody in the background and her words are so melancholic and deep, yet beckon for sympathy and empathy...Beautiful!!! Then you fight Godwyn's friend Fortissax....What an epoch!!!
Exactly. That contrast you are describing reminds me of the beauty of having the duality of life and death.
Thanks for giving her a compliment. ^^
I love her very much.
I like how Ranni just casually says "I stole death long ago" Welp, that mystery is solved. Now wait for Rogier to confirm it.
Your videos are amazing! Keep up the good work 👏🏻
I actually teared up at Rogier’s death scene here, he’s such a wise character and a big help with Margit. Leaning against his his hat in his final moments awake, heartbreaking.
Hat Bro be rockin in the Dusk now.
Rock on Hat Bro.
His friendliness reminds you of a certain courier doesn't he? Bitter Springs vet.
I don't have much time to play, and I've always been far more interested in the lore and world of From games so combat has been a huge struggle (and not one I really enjoy). But I took down Margit on the first try thanks to Rogier. Then he appears at the round table basically bedridden, rambling, infected and dying and it was such a sad thing to see, even if he seemed happy to see me
@HelplmChoking if you have bleed weapon you can farm the giants on storm hill for a little bit until you can get the bird farm
D and rogier’s friendship is amazing
I love the different things the pc does like the laying his head on rogier, the blue flame at ranni’s true body, the hand on fia’s head it just make everything more cinematic
This was awesome, really some next level stuff. The cinematography and artwork were top notch. By the way the artwork for the black blade inscription @ 17:08 is just…mwaa chefs kiss…perfect!! Keep up the good work vaati boy!!
D’s AI being literally dogshit for the fight against the twin gargoyles has trained me to pray for his downfall everytime I see him 😂
It’s insane how high quality these videos are becoming. Kudos to EVERYONE involved in this process. This stuff is better than most tv shows.
End part NEEDS a kickass electric guitar solo after "the age of duskborn"
Man I cant help but laugh at the "Wrath of D" line. Dude sounds so fucking nuts and I love it
Glad you have your fun lol. I take his behavior and what he did too seriously so I don't feel the same. But I don't want to ruin your fun :)
That was awesome The gameplay parts were so well done especially the last fight where he used all the prior boss moves was a good choice
What an absolutely incredible video! I sat and watched the entire thing from start to finish captivated by the countless hours of work and effort you and your peers put into this! Great job Vaati! What an amazing way to help others understand Elden Ring's story and get them invested in it! Props man!
Love the idea of this series being your interpretation of the way the story unfolds, and the reminder is much appreciated. The cinematic style of this series wows me every time.
the part where Rogier describes his friendship with D really gets me, especially when he says "But our paths since diverged. Never again to cross. Though that's hardly an uncommon fate for two friends"
D was a bro I couldn’t attack him for being committed to his faith and the only thing that ever showed him love even if he did just kill a lady who only wanted to help the persecuted and weak that I also liked. Still love her step father mad respect to the lion for being so good and kind to her.
@Roman von ungern-sternberg
I pitied D. It is unfortunate growing up and feeling stepped on and hated by the world for just existing as you are, but that does not give you the right to take that anger out on others that are trying to do the same as you, survive as they were made.
I think that's the point though. Instead of senseless hatred, Fia didn't fall into malice and darkness and instead tried to make things right and help others going through the exact same thing D and his brother went through.
@Victoria Annelise I mean the golden order has a point though those who live in death are not the by product of anything organic. The issue stems from how folk deal with this fact for example: gold mask vs D
Thank you so much for this. You guys are incredible
My god watching you fight D with all those spells and abilities, god I can just feel the burning desire of "YOU KILLED FIA! I WILL OBLIERATE YOU!!"
I hope VaatiVidya is hired to make all the cutscenes for the next Souls game.
The production value of this video is absolutely exquisite
Prepare to cry never let's me down
jeez this production is so impressive. Well Done!
What an amazing retelling of the duskborne ending. This really makes me want to make a necromancer.
This is pure art. Thank you Vaati and all involved for bringing this to us.
This video reminded me of everything I love about Vaatividya lore videos, from the first dark souls till elden ring and everything in between. Brilliant work.
This is the most beautiful piece of Elden Ring content I've seen yet, which is saying a great deal because of how much great stuff there is. This ending, and all the questlines that make it up, was what I did in my very first playthrough of Elden Ring, and it's always had a special place in my heart because of that. This is brilliant, and so very touching. Extraordinary work as always!
Very touching indead! Age of Duskborn is also my favorite ending and path to go through.
The animation in this video is absolutely incredible!! Thank you Vaati for supporting 2D animation and the artist behind it!!
Were they the ones who did the animation right at the start because it looks so official? 😮
Yet again has our favourite aussie gone above and beyond. May good fortune be upon you and your collaborators.
I'm only in the first Start of the video and I want to say the animation is amazing and I hope I could see more of this for The entirety of for Elden ring and dark souls in this type of animation style. Thank you my friend
This is a masterpiece!
this video is on another level. ive been watching your channel for years and i must say the production value of these novels you and the others create is staggering. the perfect mixing of in game dialog with your script mixes in a way where even though they speak in a sort of backwards old english thats hard to understand the way its put in your story almost translates it for us. even though the character is silent the script and the environmental storytelling you created almost gave them a verbal script. i could hear the character speak which is just brilliant script writing. the music in the background was muted in the story telling but always there ever present. Only to swell and demand attention during the fight scenes. exquisite. Now the fight scenes itself are a masterpiece. you guys took a game that is famous for its difficulty and created beautifully choreographed movie scenes with it. Camera angles where perfect. (radagon death scene with him falling over had me out of my chair) the choreographing was impeccable, the scene sticking out most in my head was the ending fight with D setting it up as the protagonist on the back foot at the beginning, taking a swing as a spell is being cast making the viewer believe "oh! hes got the timing he'll interrupt the spell and gain ground in the fight!" only to have the spell go off first knocking our champion back. This creates perfect tension in the fight even for those who have played through this storyline on their own. Even though this is what i would describe as a documentary on Elden Rings story you guys turned it into a full blown movie and for me personally. This movie gets a 10/10. Simply amazing. Well done!
It really is sad that Godwin had to have such a tragic story. I hope that we will have some form of closure on his behalf, or find him in the past before everything went wrong.
My GOD that last fight’s cinematography was absolutely immaculate. This team is absolutely legendary.
Honestly Thanks for doing this.
Silly Weird I don’t have A Console just tablet. I won’t play Elden Ring but it’s the kind of art and storytelling I enjoy. I can still find inspiration and get ideas from videos like yours though. That compared to 90% shallow storytelling in media this days.. believe me the work you guys chose to do I Very Very much appreciated.. it was really worth your time and effort
I hope you continue and are blessed with meaning and support through your whole creative process
Your quality of video only gets better
Thanks for bringing us those
OUTSTANDING as always .. And the next episode is the most waited one for me, cause I love Ranni and her story, and of course, your interpretations about her ..
I'm willing to it .. :D
Wow that animation and the lore is amazing 🔥
This is definitely a deeply collaborative work, but I hope you feel the deep satisfaction of being the one who brings it all together.
These are beautiful... and it'd be lovely if the folks at FromSoftware could see and enjoy loving takes like these on their work.
Still get chills with the Malekith transformation and the music; it’s an incredible sequence. His move set is damn awesome as well.
My favorite Boss and cutscene.
shame his hp is like 10k lol
OH MY GOD HE'S SO GOD DAMNED COOL
Personally my favorite souls boss of all time
Maliketh, not Malekith
I'd pay serious money to watch his stuff what a legend Vaati and fellow collaborates!!
I love this series you got going on. Very informative and relaxing. I barely sleep at night, but just listening/watching these videos puts my mind at ease (like listening to rain at night in the fall). Can’t wait for more to come!👏🏽💯
Awesome! At this point this could be a standalone Movie with such visuals! Thanks for the Hard work!
That fight scene with D....had me in tears, he cared for his brother.
this is legit better than any movie released in the past years
vaatividya takes the rich, grand lore of the game, and somehow manages to amplify it with his cinematography and narration. This video is sublime.
Mispap1 is the cinematographer and editor and who captures a lot of this
Speculative lore. The game really doesn't have much lore. Duskborn ending is the best ending though.
No gods, no masters.
@Nobody Nothing doesn’t have much lore? most of what Vaati talks about is explained by characters and through item descriptions
Wow if only the game could do that.
Yeah single sentences, and a few lines of dialogue isn't "grand lore". Not in the same way that say Dragon Age has lore.
The quality of these videos is insane omfg I'm so glad we have Vaati here ,soulsborne wouldn't be the same without him
Please take this as a compliment, but your videos help me sleep! Your voice is so soothing, the storytelling is amazing, etc. Thank you so much!
....this was incredible, a full on movie. The passion, work everything I loved everything about this.
You're insane, I'm watching all of your prepare to cry videos and they are masterpiece
I can't put into words how insane it is that this series simply keeps getting better and better! While this ending is for sure incredibly interesting, although not my favorite, this series always manages to shed a light on a few details I missed while playing it, and especially to also present the grand narrative of it as a truly cinematic experience. For sure one of the best gaming related Clip-Share channels ever and the Souls community will always appreciate you! Thank you!!!!
That cannonball onto the Tibia Mariner was glorious.
Seriously though splendidly done, simply incredible.
I thought he was going to Lions Claw into that thing but no; buttslam/groundpound. Gave me a good chuckle.
At this point, I have no idea how the Tibia Mariner isn't more of a joke than Pinwheel. All you have to do is stand next to it and spam attacks. You'll get hit once or twice at the most and he'll be dead before your finish him off. The only frustrating part about this fight is the face he teleports, and it's always when they have like, 0.00001HP left🗿🗿
@Maximus Storm Simple; because there are other bosses as easy as the Tibia Mariner; Soldier of Godrick, Cemetary Shade, Trolls etc, but in DS1 Pinwheel is in a class of his own in terms of difficulty, making him stand out even more.
The production quality in these videos is blowing my mind. I would love to see Vaati return to Dark Souls and Bloodborne eventually to give those games this treatment. Thanks for another great video!
These are so amazing! I honestly can't believe that this production quality is made by a sole content creator on YT! You've done a great service to the Elden Ring lore community, & I just can't get enough of your videos! Thank you so much!
I would LOVE to see 1 of these movie length kore videos made on Ranni's ending with the Age of Stars next! 🙇♀️🙏🥰
The age of stars is our next episode, coming out hopefully next month. It'll be the best and longest one yet😁
Yet again, another absolutely awesome video. I learned so much of the lore just from you.
You didn't have to do my boy, Maliketh like that and parry him twice tho 😂
As someone who has watched your channel from the original prepare to cry to this, it is absolutely inspiring to see how much progress, love, and effort your videos continue to get while they evolve into the next beast of lore video. I truly think you are one of the best souls lore presenter on the internet man, and you are a constant inspiration to one day try and make videos once life slows down a little!
Really looking forward to something on the Greater Will and the Golden Order!
It's very sad that both Lanseax and Fortissax lost the person they loved.
Godwyn lost a friend but gained a Bad Dragon 😜
@Monsieur Dorgat the fact that there are a brand of consummation aids called bad dragon just adds a extra layer to your comment
Amongst many other characters
@Roman von ungern-sternberg 😇
@Monsieur Dorgat Godwyn and Vyke getting that dragon bussy
