Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011
Yeah buying the repair boxes and the upgrade boxes is a good idea. You can go down to Blighttown, farm the slugs and upgrade your weapon at any bonfire... I guess you don't need those large titanite's for the awesome weapons you have though lol. But with a normal weapon it works really well.
BTW you can kill that spider lady at the bonfire after killing Quelaag to get her firekeepers soul but be warned once you do that you can't later warp to that bonfire. So it's best to hold off on killing her until you're almost ready to beat the game and you're done with having to go down to blighttown. It's easier to just warp there than working your way down the ladders ever time you need to go there.
