Dark Souls 2 has so many barrels, barrels over here, barrels over there. I have destroy countless of them but unlike any other rpg, there is nothing inside. Are there any items that can be found by destroying those barrels?
Yes, I believe there are some barrels in No Man's Wharf that have an item in them, rolling is the best tactic for destroying objects such as barrels, vases and the like. A tip for vases, if you angle your camera downwards you can peek inside, this is useful if you want to check if they are filled with poison or worse, acid.
