Yeah...it was three times. Hall mates just love to get some of that DS action. I'm actually doing a lot better with my other character anyway.

Making a character choice... I think I'm going to go with the Hunter like I did in Demon's Souls.

Come back later and kill him. He drops a really useful ring.

Forest covenant got pissed at me for no reason, so I had to run through all those motherfuckers to and from Great Grey Wolf Sif. At least the boss battle was easy.

Good job!
Make sure you give the ember to the blacksmith.

What do I do with my 30,000 souls?

And I have 3 dragon scales, should I upgrade the Drake Sword?

Upgrading the drake sword would help, but once you get to Sen's Fortress you get a lightning spear, which is better than the upgraded drake sword. You'd be better off just leveling up or buying some magic/miracles.

I just got to anor londo and activated the bridge. I can see 3 gargoyles and 2 giant knights.

Beat the Capra Demon with no issues today, woo.

Now I'm heading to The Depths. After that I think I'll continue on and hit Darkroot Forest, since Darkroot Basin comes after The Depths.. I don't know the map and stuff well but I imagine Darkroot Basin is through Darkroot Forest, yes?


Yeah, whatever.

You don't need the forest key to go to Darkroot Basin, it's just up a hill near the start of Darkroot Garden. There's some nice loot there if you manage to kill the hydra, and there's a merchant there that sells unique spells and a different catalyst. After you get whatever you want from the basin, go through Darkroot Garden. It's a fairly short area and you get an ember after you defeat Moonlight Butterfly.

Watch the fuck out for trap doors, or you'll fall straight into multiple frogs, who will proceed to curse the fuck out of you. You REALLY don't want to be cursed.

I...hate...Blight Town.

Gotta be careful on where to go, annoying enemies such as the mosquitoes (like those of Demon's Souls), poisonous bog, bad frame rate, one wrong slip can prove fatal if you're high, fire breathing puppies, a black phantom, spitting darts that can "poison" you, and other shit I just hate about it.

SL is 32, but I think I might skip it for now and get some other stuff. I'm thinking of going back to the asylum.

There's a shortcut in the Valley of Drakes to skip almost all of Blight Town. Just head to the end of the cave right after you cross the plank.

I can never get summoned anymore, I'm in Anor Londo, SL 34. Is everyone else around this area a much higher level, or am I just having shit luck?

I was fighting Smough and Ornstein. Ornstein was dead, and Smough had a sliver of health. My heavy soul arrow somehow missed, and fatass cornered me and killed me. I haven't gotten that close to beating those motherfuckers since then.

Ouchhhh... I haven't even gotten that far yet. I'm sure I'll have the same gruelling experience...

Does anyone else find the online community dead compared to Demon's Souls? I've made it to Blight Town, and I still haven't been invaded yet. Also, I very rarely see ghosts.

Fought Quelaag for the first time last night. After all of the hype saying how she's a hard boss, I was pretty disappointed (and I'm a melee user). As long as you stayed on her side hitting her legs, you were pretty much ok. I'm sure there will be harder bosses later on :)

Rang the 2nd bell, killed Shiva (after buying some of the weapons) and the ninja guy for the cart wheel ring (lol), joined the Dragon Covenant to see if I can get some Dragon Scales, tried out the dragon head glitch with a soul of the undead (only wanted to see what the fuss was about, only did about 2,000 souls so all's good). I swear, that glitch is really retarded and I can see how it would take the fun out of the game. Cart wheeling + dragon head =awesomeness

Now I'm at Ash Lake with a SL of 47, ready to head on over to Sen's Fortress...with a head of a dragon. I'm planning on tackling either the catacombs, new londo ruins, the forest, or the Valley of the Drakes. I heard that there was some sort of lighting spear at Sen's and lightning is useful against dragons so...

Its not dead, its just a shitty server architecture. The people are there, but not on your server. Sucks don't it?

Well...Sen's Fortress is fun. Got all the way up to the giant throwing giant firebombs at me. Messages said there was a bonfire on top, but I thought it was bulshit. Well apparently you have to go through a broken wall to get to it and do a leap of faith.

This place isn't too bad compared to Blight town.

Smough and Ornstein are fucking me UP.

And I've just been running to the white fog, because I can't kill those two giants, so I haven't used the black orb yet to kill that gold asshole.
