- In Shrine of Storms area 4-3, you can find a special sword called the Storm Ruler. At first glance, it may not seem very useful, particularly when you check its stats to find it has only 10 durability (the lowest of any item in the game). Then you give it a swing...and watch as it splits the air in two with a vertical shockwave of death, slaughtering every flying manta ray that happens to be even near the shockwave's range. While it only makes shockwaves in this area, it's still satisfying to swat those enemies down from the sky, as well as take large chunks out of the Storm King's HP with every swing. The fact that it's one of the best spots to farm souls is just icing on the cake.
- When you beat the game, after you have conquered some of the greatest challenges in video game history, built a character that no Archdemon can stop, and chose to let the Old One rest once and for all...that moment when the hero takes one last glimpse at his main enemy gives the player a feeling of true accomplishment that no gaudy cinematic could possibly impart on them. No twists, no strings attached—your war against the Demons is over and you have won. It's even stated outright that you are now the unyielding defender of the world and the keystone to its stability. If the demons ever come back, they better sleep with one eye open.
