      So, I decided to kill the guy that sells miracles at the firelink shrine.... he said something that pissed me off.

      "What the... What did I do wrong!?"

      YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DID!

      I'm also almost tempted to kill Lautrec but, I want his armor.


      Also, Killed Pinwheel of the catacombs... fell off the map when traversing the darkness.

      I'm in Blightown, dodging boulders. Finally picked up new gear: crimson robes, mask of the sealer and a new catalyst. Looks pretty sick

      Yea, that definitely happened. Is that bad? I'm picking up the guide today. I'd rather have an NPC killing ONE NPC than an NPC killing ALL NPCs (Yurt or whatever in Demon Souls ruined my 60+ hour game).

      It's not bad, you just can't get all the benefits of raising your flasks level. You get the ladies soul from him later. It's just a minor annoyance in the early/mid game.



      Yurt... He met the edge of the tower fairly quickly in my game. I never wore his silly helm.

      that is a GREAT spot to do some soul gathering. there is a group of enemies you can kill for about 9000 souls a pop, takes about 2 minutes once you get your strategy. i used it to level and power up my pyro hand

      and the boss that you will get to...

      I wanted to join for the covenant.... but guess what happened to me? Glitch killed an npc (walked off cliff. ) Covenant broken..


      I went to the boss, wasn't sure if I was going to break the covenant so I decided to let him kill me. fairly easy fight though. Does look beautiful and artful.

      Well, went to the depths, got the boss, killed the tail (died shortly after due to trying to figure out how the hell to stop the soul arrow shooting jackass) But the death was soooo worth it... the weapon is AWESOME! works well with my strength build. (currently at 36)


      I'm also noticing an input delay sometimes... like I was in the depths and was being attack, I blocked, tried to counter and got nothing until 4 seconds (yes, 4 seconds) after and started getting hit again because they had time to recover. Thankfully it's a non-issue most of the time because 1 hit will either knock 'em on their arse or kill them.



      Hmm.. I thought for sure Lautrec would've killed the firekeeper since I entered the depths. It appears (since I came back to the firelink shrine) she's still alive. So, yeah, I can finally go into the depths without worry.

      I'm stuck in Blighttown still. Tried entering from the Drake Valley area, no go. Tried the original route from the Depths, no go. I can only put in 2 hours or so a night and it usually takes me a good 30 minutes to figure out where the hell I'm going.

      that input lag issue is a known glitch

      there are some other things like invulnerability problems with a spell, and some terrain tracking problems with i'm sure we have already all dealt with

      So, I thought you were supposed to get humanity when you kill a black phantom? I got nothing but a small bunch of souls..

      i think you take the humanity they have, so maybe they didn't have any?

      the rats in the depths give humanity, with the snake ring i got about 30 humanities in an hour or so.

      after facing 8 taurus demons and 100000 billion capra demons.. I got beat by a damn worm. But I have the Demon Greatsword and Demon Axe.

      And then I get stuck in blight town because I don't have the key to the lift shortcut in the valley of the drakes. WHERE IS THE KEY!!!?!?!?!?

      i don't get it, you got to the demon ruins but are stuck in blight town?

      that worm destroyed my weapon a few times getting to that boss

      you can take the elevator from the daughter of chaos, that goes right down to the ruins.

      I don't have the key to the new londo ruins (gate to the lift from valley of drakes) So I would then have to go on the cliff route pass the ancient dragon and somehow beat the one drake blocking the whole path. I ended up dying trying to pass him.

      I have to say, those worms are 10x harder than any of the demons down there. Very small window of attack (if you're melee like me) and they hit HARD (full stamina bar for me).


      so I ventured into the Great Hollows and get 1 shot by the big mushroom dudes.

      Blightown f'ed up my game for awhile too. I'm too far into maneuverability and ranged play to deal with those narrow platforms 100 feet in the air.

      That's why I pretty much skipped blight town entirely... I just took the shortcut to the boss and haven't really explored any of it except the bottom level.

      blighttown is a pain in the ass. pile the framerate on top of the platforming and you have a ****ty area to deal with.

      by the time i was done with it, i ended up with a good strategy to go up and down from both sides, and the past few times i tried i got where i was going without screwing up

      Sen's Fortress... quite possibly the biggest trap of them all. Not bad when you know where to run, when to walk, when to sht bricks. That damn mimic... immune to knock down. There goes my whole playstyle.

      those mimic's are so awesome! i think i died from 75% of them. i never went near a chest afterwards without first throwing a fireball. that wild kick they do, and their funny laugh...

      i got to the final boss tonight, but haven't pulled the trigger and walked into the lair yet. still have some other things i want to try and find and do first.

      that area! the places you go in this game are just incredible

      That's what I was doing every time I saw a chest... r2 attack and dodge backwards.
