Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011
My brother got me this as a Christmas gift. Bought the strategy guide that looks bossy as Hell even though it doesn't seem to do a terribly good job describing some stuff. The enemy guides are GREAT, but the location guides aren't so much.
I'm about 6 hours in and currently level 13/14 (don't remember exactly). I get the sense I'm progressing really slowly, but I'm okay with that. I mean, I've only beaten the Asylum Demon as far as "main" bosses go and I'm about to go through the wall of light that takes me to the Tauros Demon.
Wouldn't say I'm all that good, but I'm getting stomped way less than I did at this point in Demon's Souls, and as a result I'm enjoying it WAY more. I'm a pyromancer though, so backpedalling and hurling fireballs at cunts has helped immensely, especially against the first Black Knight. Only enemies that caused me real trouble were the skeletons in the graveyard below Firelink Shrine, but I was down there at level 3 or some shit, and I assume that is going to be an uphill struggle even for someone that doesn't suck. I stuck at it and got the hang of killing them, though. Even killed one of the skeleton giants while I was at it. Would've been easier if I had tried to tackle the place once I'd levelled up some, but I wanted to snag some of the loot down there so I stuck at it and got a decent shield (which I've since dropped for a Heater Shield) and a Winged Spear, even though I can't wield the fucker properly yet.
Reading through the thread, y'all seem to be way luckier with item drops. I'm not really getting shit and I've been human most of the way.
When do I start getting halfway decent armour? This hood and tattered rags aren't going to be much use soon enough. And at what level should I attempt to fight Havel? I want the ring he drops so I can wield a battleaxe and still be able to roll as quickly as possible.
