    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.
    When you go back, are you locked in with them or is it out in the open?

    It's a shitty whip that it drops isn't it?

    @Big-Swiss Thing about Pyro is that is scales with fuck all and you can really power it up if you invest the souls. Because of that it's a good supplimentary ability in DS1. But a supplimentary ability only. I would look to DEX or STR for your main weapon now if your pyro is decent. Which ever stat is highest, just choose a weapon that suits and start levelling that up.

    As far as AL goes, you want to be running and rolling towards / through the legs of the sentinels when they attack and stab them in the bum. Watch for their delayed shield slam as it has a bit of tracking, either tank it, roll away or roll beside them, and stab them in the bum. Silver knights you just shove your shield up and get behind them. To stab them in the bum.

    Stab things in the bum.

    Knights and Sentinels are not so bad. Batwing demons you want to watch, they can hit hard and the lightning can fuck you up. Painting guardians are in one area only and so long as you draw them out individually they are fine.
    cheers, yeah, I will look into my weapons and Change to something else

    Yeah I agree, that's why I wait till I've got higher stats before going

    Not impossible but not easy. I did the whole game at starting SL so I could create a strong character to help noobs. Just need to upgrade weapons well

    I'd say 40 to 45 is about right for AL

    @Big-Swiss TBH stats don't make as much difference as you think. It's doable SL1 with upgrading weapons / buffs etc. Using Fire, chaos, lightning, raw upgrades etc. Upgrading pyro as well. you can get a fair bit of damage output regardless of stats.

    Not that I've done it. Will I fuck.

    @quadfather yes but I want the shitty whip.

    Also. Shoot Manus in his big stupid head from above. Go on. You know you want to.

    @wuntyphyve

    Haha fair enough.

    Yeah, I might just fuck him off tbh. I'll probably do it human form properly first so I can summon you know who and then take it from there

    Although shooting manus in his big stupid head kind of fucks things up. His health bar is still there when you go down and dusk doesn't appear. I had to quit and reload

    I don't mind quitting and reloading if that's all you need to do?

    She doesn't say anything. She just mumbles and moans until you fuck off.

    You get extra dialogue from her in Darkroot basin when the DLC is complete. She gives all the credit to Arty.

    Women.

    Also, if you jumping punch her when she's on the floor, she will stand up. It's a glitch

    I regret it now as I was actually looking forward to the fight. I've done him a couple times before and I've quite enjoyed it. As I mentioned last week and firmly in my defence I was merely "testing" the exploit and managed to get a little carried away with myself. It's a nervous tick I have. Just can't stop firing arrows at shit. Honest.

    Haha

    Well, I've done it both ways but I might try full on summoning this time for shits and giggles.

    I don't like being hamstrung on bosses for too long, it does my head in. Though saying that, I enjoyed taking my time to relearn the sanctuary guardians moves

    Swings and roundabouts I guess

    Depends on the boss. Some are genuinely more fun than others. I always have a good time with the sanctuary guardian as I just think it's a cool fight. It's surmountable, but takes a bit of finesse. I did manage to kill him first time this time but he also poisoned me with his tail which has never happened before. So I had to keep evading and trying to pick the exact moment to heal without him twatting me. It was intense. But good.

    Bed of Chaos is still fucking balls though. I'm not a massive fan of Gwyndolin either.

    @wuntyphyve

    Surmountable but finesse required is a good way of describing it.

    Yes, the twat poisoned me earlier which hasn't happened before but i find poison more a slight irritant in dark souls tbh

    I might try and do the main oolacile areas tonight later on, pissed up. Bound to be a complete success.

    @quadfather aye it is. Something about that constant hiss stresses me out though.

    In other news the new revision of the futurepress guide just dropped through my door. Quality on par with the bloodborne one. Beautiful. Whole section devoted to lore too.

    I hope you're not being cheeky. I am obviously legendary at this game.

    Not getting much time to game at the minute so making super slow progress. Managed half an hour tonight which was enough to kick off the DLC and smash Sanctuary Garden to a pulp.

    Starting to get a bit serious about doing The Dark Soul now. Cut Seath's tail off tonight (my word that fight is harder when you try to do that) and got the "all sorceries" achievement. Can't see any blockers now to me getting The Dark Soul in the middle of NG++, once I have a third Soul of Sif and have got to the Anor Londo blacksmith.

    There's a load of materials farming to do, but that's not a major problem.

    At Gwyns fog gate. I was going to do a few more bits and bobs but donít want this playthrough to become a chore. Tomorrow morning the old man gets it.

    Going to go for the dark soul myself too I think. Why not. Give it a try.
