    @monkman76 Yeah, Monumental dialogue unlocks the ability to level up.

    He can be tricky to spot, because he looks like all the others

    Haha, you've done exactly the same as me. Found a sign up there saying "I'm lost", couldn't have agreed more.

    She's up there... Somewhere. A bit lower down than that, on a balcony to the right hand side overlooking the main room from memory.

    You've gone too far. Go back down from the pantheon to the next available area where you can go left/right (depending which way you are coming down). You'll see the statues face right in front of this area where you can go.

    Go in there and go left.

    Also, make sure you explore this area fully. There are items in the Nexus. Plural.

    Did the wax lady tell you to speak to him? It plays a little cutscene showing you where to go.

    It's 2 or 3 floors up, left side, then turn into a door way and there are more stairs leading up. Somewhere up there you find a bunch of children, one of them is the Monumental.

    A perfect microcosm for the game that a random NPC is such a pain in the arse just to talk to so you can carry on.

    Isn't the monumental the only one of the child statues with a candle? I seem to remember that but been a while since I played so could be wrong.

    @rockavitch it is on PS3 but bluepoint have put about a million more candles in the Nexus. It's looks lovely but yeah, you can't use that to zero in on the monumental now

    @quadfather ahh ok, had a feeling it was something like that or they just removed the visual clue completely as I couldn't understand how it was hard to miss when you are at least in the right area.

    Heh, cheers, found him. Should maybe have paid more attention to the little cut scene when I spoke to the woman at the bottom first.

    This thread being bumped is making me really annoyed that I didnt manage to get a PS5, might have to just do another run of the peasant version while I wait.

    Are we all called Alan in our first run? I am and to say I am poor is an understatement. Breezed through phalanx and tower night. Beat spider boss and my god the difficulty spike is crazy. 2-2 is a fucking nightmare getting through that tunnel.

    Aside from the visual upgrade, I'm finding the combat so much more ... weighty and visceral. Finding parrying quite a bit easier than I remember and doing that little stagger never gets old to break guard 😀

    And how have I never used a Morningstar ? Backstabs with that are awesome. No idea where I found it but have explored each world a little.

    And I don't fancy going back to 5-1, it's so dank and it reminds me how well Souls games summon a feeling of dread in some areas. I think that's the area I must have sprinted through with Quad and some others, rather than playing much of it on my own and properly mastering the area. In fact, I've only played each Souls game a couple of times so feeling as lost as I ever did.

    What's the 'best' way to play DeS in terms of being human or in soul form ? Not really enjoying the half health bar.

    @TheBlackDog

    You should have 3/4 health if you have Cling Ring equipped.

    @TheBlackDog agreed with the weighty feel. Was trying to say this before. Feels different to a newcomer than the other From games.

    I was also wondering about the half health. Whatís that all about?

    Gave thisnmy second go just now. Found my souls I lost from 1st go, glad that they can be recovered, I had thought that was it essentially all progress lost.

    Ended up finding my way and killing Phallanx on this life. Have now levelled up to lv 10. What next?

    @Worlds When you're in soul form, you have half health. There's a ring in the first area that gives you 3/4s which you'll likely end up wearing for most of the game.

    Playing around with the visual filters, Iíve settled on Vivid at 0.75 intensity. Looks even better to me now.

    @DakeyrasUK

    Go anywhere, kill anything. Personally I would either press on to 1-2, or go to 2-1 (Stonefang Tunnel).

    I don't know if we want to get into World Tendency and suicide in the Nexus. Any opinions?

    How the hell do you know if she waxes? Is this a mod I donít know about?

    So. Typically. My 10 year old got the first gate unlocked in Boletaria, but I didn't because I got cocky and got killed in human form. He's basically doing better than me already. I'm going to have to blindfold him.
