    Have fun!

    Actually it wasn't too bad this time for some reason.

    Ah she is, I'm just blind. Still, awfully helpful of that undead dog to push me into a chasm.

    Hm. Nito is a cunt. Well, his mates are. Isn't there a place where you can stand where they don't get to you?

    If you stand by the area you drop down, the two big ones won't aggro you. You can then kite him around that area a bit.

    I'd recommend getting a divine weapon to kill the small skellies permanently.

    Don't forget about the second bonfire down there either. It's closer to his boss room if you're doing multiple runs.

    Yeah have kindled that one.

    I've done him now - made the mistake last time of getting the others Skelly's aggroed.

    Cheers

    I've now done Painted World and Asylum 2, so it's either head on down to fire town where bosses are regular enemies (nope) or the Catacombs.

    Get a feeling I really need to start using a more end-game weapon now, I'm going between a Baldor Side Sword +15 and a Zweihander +10. They are obviously doing me just fine, but get a feeling there's bigger nastier stuff I could use....

    Yeah and funnily enough it's from the darkroot bonfire that I'll use to get to the dlc so I might as well do some new londo just beforehand

    To be honest man I swapped out my furysword for my BSS+15 and it's all I've needed to off all the late game shit. Granted I'm mixing things up with pyro but ultimately it's the BSS that's doing the heavy lifting.

    BSS +15 with 40 dex destroys everything in the game, it is mental.

    Though it worries me a little you are using a BSS and a Zwei as one is dex and one is str.

    maybe boss soul your BSS upto an atorias great sword

    @Graxlar_v3 BSS+15 is about as good as you are going to get with a reasonably balanced stats-mix and playstyle. You can min/max your way to higher damage throughput with the really big 2-handers, but that comes at a cost to survivability.

    I saved them for the end so I could get me slab whilst I was down there. I love ash lake, even though it's pretty pointless. Great Hollow can just well and truly fuck off though.

    Ash Lake is such a nice looking area, it's such a shame there's fuck all to do there.

    They just plonked a load of random shit in there for a laugh.

    My main critique of the BSS is that it's pretty boring and it looks a bit uninspiring. As a weapon though it's awesome. That long rainge thrust attack fucks most invaders up a treat as well as you can back off and then suddenly lunge forward, break their poise and follow it up with frantic swinging to get them the fuck out your game.

    Yeah BSS is a bit vanilla, but it's just so damn effective. I'm going to do a bit of a Chaos Blade run for my NG++ playthrough - just annoys me you can't buff the blade.

    Yeah because I'm a total NOOB and I don't really understand these games amazingly well and didn't realise I should have focused on Str OR Dex so I basically have both, next run through I will pick a side.

    But if BSS is decent enough I might stick with it unless Atorias great sword is a genuine leap up?

    That's why I use Zwei as well, because it's a little bit of both.

    I know I've got myself into a bit of a mess but hey, it's an RPG and that's the path I took!

    I've only gone uchi this time round because I fancied a change from the bss and my character is the eastern one with quite funky clothes on so it looks good for fashion souls.

    Saying all that though, I'm still using the furysword.

    Just done the sanctuary guardian. Only took three goes, quite pleased with that. Forgot about the speed of these bosses

    @OllyJ Oh I wouldn't worry about that, part of the fun is learning how to exploit the systems for maximum destruction of enemies

    First time I played Demons Souls I was taking on enemies made of fire with a Dragon Longsword - which is basically a fire damage weapon. Took me ages to complete that level - days in fact. Only when I read guides when doing NG+ did I start to understand just how much I'd got wrong - made me a better player though!

    Personally I think that's quite a tough boss, it's mega quick with it's attacks and doesn't give you a second to recover

    I think I'm going to have a go at both of them tonight for the lols. What's the worst that can happen? I want that fucking tail...

    I don't think they are classed as a boss though, so I can run away and recover if I need to and poke my head out and snipe.
