Weekends = out of town

I did get to play a bit last night. I got cursed twice, made the long trek to the belltower twice, died twice and lost all my souls on one of those trips, died to the giant rat twice, died to the gaping dragon twice, died to the giant club guy in the bottom of the skeleton place tower (because I still haven't managed to kill him), died to the ranged guy by the blacksmith, died to the hydra twice, and fell off several cliffs. Overall not much in the way of progress was made.

Fought my first invader tonight. Was down in the poisonous bog and some dude with little armor and a gigantic sword came after me. Figured someone that bold would be geared up and waste me, but it was a butt raping. Didn't hit me once

Yikes, curse sucks. Luckily I haven't experienced it yet. Giant Rat can be cheesed with arrows, gaping dragon wasn't too difficult for me as you basically just have to keep your distance from him and then attack his sides or tail..or if you are more daring you can attack his crocodile head for some extra damage, Havel isn't too difficult just have to dodge roll his attacks/strafe..you can cheese/exploit him by going to through darkroot garden (or is it basin?) and just jump attacking (forward+R2 at same time) the door towards the right, hydra can be a bitch in so many ways..deal with the rock enemies in area and run up to the water. Keep your shield up and then counter attack the heads..should be able to take one down each time..when it gets down to one head I just shot my arrows at it..shit got annoying as it would constantly attack different places, but never go after me so I stopped shielding and just spammed arrows into it..I died so many times thanks to the bullshit drop in the water if you get too close, the enemy near the blacksmith can be a bitch. Definitely try to attack it's tail, but make sure you can tell when it's going to slap you with it's tail..easy to block, but can be a simple mistake that gets you killed.

I actually made a lot of progress last night (as opposed to Sunday). Found the crimson armor set in the bog area, which replaced my starting armors. Upgraded my winged spear +6 up to the raw winged spear + 1 so I'm finally doing some decent damage. This allowed me to beat the shield knight with the large club, which gave the ring allowing me to move at <25% burden. With that new speed I rolled through a bunch of the bosses.

Hydra went down on first attempt. Once I was close enough to be under his ranged attack, I'd just hold block through his charge and took out each head one by one.

Giant rat went down on one attempt. Was able to get behind most of his attacks and wear him down.

Beat a giant cat-thing above the waterfall. It got stuck on a tree and basically gave me a free kill. Then two more came, and I didn't feel like using the lame glitch again so I left. I promise myself that will be the only cheese kill I do.

To the left of the giant cat, I lost about 15,000 souls. I think it was a mage + archer + ????. I was trying to kite some of the treant things and got turned around and basically got mowed down from behind and was not able to make it to my corpse(s) again. Very frustrating.

Think tonight I'll be re-trying gaping dragon with my sleek new setup

Beat that bitch after like 25 tries.... just to run into the next boss just down the road where I have absolutely no idea where to even begin a strategy

It is quite good. I just started upgrading it and it's at +3 or +4. Me gusta. I've also been messing around with the gravelord sword. Meh..it can hit for a decent amount, but it swings so god damn slow

I don't know what the fuck is up with the translation in the game but it's seriously pissing me off. There's NO way this was intentional. Firekeeper at firelink shrine dies to lautrec obviously. I was okay with this as I knew I could revive her later in game. Now I am later in game and after I kill Lautrec I get "Fire Keeper Soul" the same item that is used for estus flask upgrades. Doesn't say her actual name next to soul or anything. Of course I used it for estus upgrade rather than reviving her. Firelink bonfire is off limits for rest of game. Cool.

I'd almost say having an extra +1 to your flask is better than having the firelink bonfire. Assuming that's how its working for you, I revived her

I'm not able to warp from the firelink shrine so it's pretty inconvenient for me. God dammit

On the Tomb of Giants part (near the end of the game I think). I remember from the Game Informer review that you're supposed to carry a lantern through that part, but god knows where that is. I figure I'll stumble around in the dark for several hours and then give up and consult my guide.

Fucking beat it. Level 91, took like 30 attempts on the final boss without any outside help. Once I figured out the setup and strategy it only took about 10-15 attempts to get it down

Finally got this shit.

Fucking awesome so far. A lot harder than I thought it would be, despite what everyone says about it.

Rolled a Warrior. Running around with a giant fucking 2-handed claymore.

Took a long ass break from the game. Came back and killed Four Kings on my first try (since I returned). I fought them as if it was a DPS race. Figured out when to attack. Got the perfect amount of poise so that I could take a hit and still finish my swing. Ended up using all of my flasks during the fight and I was one hit away from dying while 4 kings were up at once. So intense. Joined Darkstalkers. Went back to catacombs-Tomb of Giants. Got shit on by those magic using tentacle guys and decided to quit there.

I'm just starting Blighttown.

This game is so brutal.

Finally killed the super armored guy at the bottom of the tower in Undead Burg and got myself a nice ring that lets me wear more heavy equipment. Now I can wear my entire Elite Knight armor set (with the Gargoyle's Helm), 2-handed sword in 1 hand and my Black Knight Shield in the other, all while still moving like I'm wearing leather.

Shit dies when I swing that sword, and I am a fucking tank at the same time.

Tip: there are certain enemies that have an extremely high drop rate for poison cures, which are nice for Blighttown...
