Don't get too close, it's dark inside. It's where my demons hide.

No, the hydra is fairly easy as long as you can get to it. If you use the Crest shield that you get when you go back to the asylum and beat the guy that freed you, you can use it to help you run down to where the hydra is. It has an 80 percent Magic resistance on it. Once down to the water, change out to any 100 percent physical damage shield, hold it up until the heads slam into you, drop it and slash at a head. Rinse and repeat.
You don't have to run all the way through the Catacombs if you take the short cuts. You can get to Pinwheel in about 20-30 seconds from that first Catacombs bonfire actually.
Here's a link to it. The Catacombs start at 6:15
You get the fog ring by trading a skull lantern with Snuggly the Crow.
You can also get a Fog Ring as a reward from the forest covenant if you kill two or three people by invading them while they are in the forest.
Also you get the skull lantern in The Tomb of Giants where Patches kicks you over the edge. It's one of the treasures down there. Just grab it and homeward bone back out.
