Compared to the climactic, fever-pitch battle under Eleyum Loyce; the point where you could bring all crowns to Vendrick to reveal what felt like a true denouement... I found this final expac to be completely lacking in satisfaction given ALL we have been through (Dark souls 1-3). While it did resolve what happened to the pygmys, it did explain you were taking a step to usher in the age of dark from the final age of fire - it was just a let down. I feel like steps are missing. I don't NEED a cutscene and credits to roll, per se, but it didn't seem final the way I had hoped. It's like if instead of waking up in a bed with all his friends around him after Frodo had tossed the ring into mount doom, traveling back and giving a fulfilling end ... just imagine he tosses the ring in the fire then cuts to the next scene where he is in Bag End and just looks at the camera and gives a thumbs up - cut to credits.
You just sort of...are doing something that leads to the ending we've all already seen (the ending from the non-DLC original game).
Was expecting more but like crossing that ledge to get the glowing thing on the corpse, getting kicked off, fighting your way back to realize it was rubbish, I suppose that's par for the course with Dark Souls. Oh well that ends ohwell.
