Some of it was still kinda brutal. The pinwheel took FIVE hits this time.


Man the Four Kings never ganged up on me in new game like they did here. It was so overwhelming not having any breathing room. Eventually took them down though and then did Gwyn second try. Overall time came to 6 hours 55 minutes. I wish it was less because I still died too much and wasted time with the failed skip in the Duke's Archives, but I'm happy with that.

At least you got to hit him and didn't actually die...

When I did the Four Kings on NG+, this was after a long time of not playing it, I was just getting destroyed by them. So I went in with the Havel Set on and just stayed near one of the Kings, moving back when he would go to grab me, and just kept attacking until all were dead. That tactic didn't take that long and it did help to have my estus flask at +20. Just in case I needed to heal myself.

And I tried that Duke's shortcut on my first run. I could get onto the side of the lift but that was it. Could never get to the balcony I needed to, so I just gave up and went to get killed by Seath. Probably took less time that way than actually trying to do it.

I've honestly had the same stuff equipped the entire run. Onionbro helm + gold hemmed black set for the rest of it.
The FaP ring is such a trap ring lol. Once you put it on it's hard to take off. You can actually get two of them so if you're hooked on that ring you can take it off in a special situation since you have the back up. I haven't used the FaP ring since my first playthrough simply because I knew I wouldn't wanna take it off. I never wear heavy armor so I am always using the Wolf Ring for poise and the other ring slot is situational.

btw that gear I'm thinking of is the Antiquated set I'm pretty sure. Great curse resist on it.

I actually tried going in with Havel's set but still got destroyed. I did the most amount of damage but still took too long, and I never got any time in between healing and....well, healing. I got my firelink bonfire to 20 as well, too.

Yeah that was my thought process too. Archives isn't actually that long once you know where you're going. First playthrough I missed the stupid room with the ladder entirely and was searching where to go for a loooooong time.

Yeah it's not a normal shortcut, and unlike the stair skip in Anor Londo it's really frustrating to try to pull off (even the speed runners screw it up as you can see ). I landed on the guardrail two or three time max (after God knows how many actual tries of it) but always choked on the roll down to the lower floor.

I killed Lautrec both runs so I had two ring of favour and protection. Pretty sure I would have wept taking it off otherwise. I'm currently wearing the second one and hope to continue a cycle of using it the whole run, killing Lautrec to get another one, putting on the Covenant of Artorias, and putting the ring back on for Gwyn.

Never got the Antiquated set. Dark Souls wiki tells me it's behind the Hydra in Darkroot and every time I tried to go there (with no knowledge that anything was even there) I fell into the water. Gave up and found that ladder near the waterfall and never returned.

Yeah it's on past the waterfall... go to the end save and quit and a gold gollem thing will appear. Kill it to release an NPC... she will sell you spells and stuff. Go back to where you fought the hydra in the same area... she'll have a summon sign down. Summon her in and you can buy stuff. After that go back to where you killed the gold crystal gollem thing and you'll see a shiny. Pick that up and that's the antiquated set.


Also as a note. You can get that second FaP ring by trading the Xanthous Crown to Snuggly. If you wanna know how to get that you just go to the Painted World as human and you'll get invaded. Kill the invader and after you get to the boss whether you kill her or not the shiny will be on the platform you walk off of to get out. If it's not there save and quit and it'll show up.

Oh god that favor and protection ring...

Killed latrec for it and wore it through the entire NG. Second ring slot was constantly changing. I had the serpent ring on most of the time.

I was also using the Black Knight Halberd(Fully upgraded) and going in with Power Within, that helped alot. There were times where I would get destroyed, like when they'd use the homing magic attack and one hit from it can pretty much destroy you. But just keeping really close to one with make the others stay away, I believe... Then when you see them attacking just roll away. It did take some tries, though.
