Don't feel like digging it up, but I remember someone in this thread thinking a bow-only run would be real hard. Believe it or not, it was incredibly easy when I did it.
Pump points in dexterity, upgrade the Long Bow to +15, name your character Legolas, and use the Darkwood Grain Ring to dodge, and it becomes laughably easy. I could kill most enemies before they got anywhere near me. The bosses weren't that hard either.
In fact, my first time beating Ornstein and Smough on the first try, was with this build. I just backflipped the f*ck away from Ornstein, putting an arrow into him every now and then, and he was finished. Then repeat with Smough. The only bosses I can remember giving me a hard time were the 4 Kings(because they spawn faster than my arrows shoot) and the Bed of Chaos(which I shouldn't have to explain). Otherwise it was a breeze.
