It’s hard to not feel a little bummed as the other player waves goodbye.

(In Dark Souls, summoned players are dismissed after a boss is defeated.)

Helping players with Dark Souls 3's biggest challenges is addicting, and keeping me from New Game Plus. Instead of starting a new challenge with my character, I’m spending evenings camped out in front of boss doors. Given how satisfying that’s been so far, that’s not such a bad thing.
