I feel like such a badass lol, went to Dukes and my uchi was weak as hell against the Crystal Skeletons but just need to get the broken pendant. Then went and killed the Hydra and rescued Dusk so I should be able to access the dlc now. But I went to New Londo and went through the whole place using only 5 estus flasks. Didnt fight the 4 kings cuz no ring but just needed the very large ember to get stronger.
so gonna start the dlc soon, hopefully im strong enough.
* bought like 10 blooming purple moss to add to the 5 I already had after looking up you get x2 Twinkling Titanite when you trade with Snuggly. Lol then I scroll down and it says she doesnt take the same item again in the same playthrough
wasted 10,000 souls.
*now im happy, just beat the Stray Demon on my first try and have a titanite slab to use on whatever.
