Finally beat Dark Souls 3 -- and loved it -- so much so that I started New Game Plus to retain my gear and mutilate all the invaders that gave me so much grief the first play-through.
However, I wouldn't say I'm bored with my clearly over-leveled character -- I see no reason to not continue my dominance into NG+2 (no such thing as OP in PvE, in my opinion :) -- but I would like to take on some new areas and enemies; so I want to grab Ashes of Ariandel DLC.
If I install the new Ashes of Ariandel DLC while currently playing NG+, am I going to lose access to areas/items/NPCs/etc. that would have been available only during the first play-through? Or is everything going to remain as if I never started NG+ (except of course the difficulty that comes with NG+)?
I'm just afraid I'm going to miss out on some items or side-quests because I started the DLC from NG+ instead of playing the DLC from NG (which was perhaps the developers' intent?)
