Alot of the time I would hardly use a chest piece for my armour. I was always wanting to roll quickly out of the way so didn't put too much on. When I had that Wood Grain ring, so I could do the flip move, I would mainly use the Gold-Hemmed Black set. It also looked pretty sweet whilst holding the Halberd.
Yea, once I learned it's attack patterns, it was pish. Didnt hit me once and I got the weapon.
I'm trying to hold off going to Blighttown, because I remember my last venture there way back when wasnt too pleasant. I've beaten the Hydra, Havel and an Undead Dragon to get my trusty Dragon Crest Shield so I can fight the Wyvern on the bridge.
