Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011
I HATE Anor Lando. Only because of the fucking Black Knight archers. I did a suicide run yesterday only so I could make my Lightning Iaito (btw, best thing in the game imo) and now I'm playing through it. I finally killed Lautrec. If you didn't kill him earlier, he hangs out in Firelink Shrine by the firekeeper and then kills her. You find a stone that will let you invade his world. So I do that, beat him, get a small amount of souls, 5 humanity...and the best ring in the whole game. Ring of Favor and Protection. 20% Boost to HP, Stamina, and Equip Load. Fuck yeah. I also have Havel's Ring on so my Equip Load is 111.6 with 28 END.
You can get the ring as soon as you find Lautrec, but if you do it the way I did (invade his world in Anor Lando), you get his awesome armor too after beating the boss in this level. Also, you get an extra firekeeper soul by beating him later so you can upgrade your Estus Flasks. With this upgrade, it'll be Estus Flasks +4.
The only thing that sucks about the Ring is that if you EVER TAKE IT OFF, it breaks. So put it on the right ring slot and never touch it.
