Just finished Dark Souls 2 Crown of the Sunken King DLC.
It was very mediocre. The amount of content is comparable with Artorias of the Abyss DLC. About 2-3 hours long. There are 3 bosses (one of them is optional and not really a boss fight) and the size of the new zone is about the same too. New items are okay, but some of them are completely unnecessary. Drakeblood armor set is very neat tho.
But whats really bad is the bosses.
The optional one is literally 3 NPCs who are trying to simulate forest gank or something. The second one is Nashandra reskin, even some moves are the same. Plus, she summons golden Velstadt, which deosnt make any sense lore-wise. The last one is a complete Kalameet rehash, including even some movesets.
In general, I would not recommend anyone buying the first DLC. It just feels very lazy and uninspiring, especially bosses. And that comes from a big Souls fan.
But thats just my opinion.
not always in humans you found the one you truly love
