    @bluenose

    Do you mean the guy in the tutorial / intro? He's The Vanguard. Phalanx is a big slimy thing in Boletaria Castle.

    Phalanx will be there when you load in, until you beat him.

    @neems Yes sorry the Vanguard. Can you kill him, or are you meant to die

    You can kill him, but you only get one shot. You're expected to die, don't worry about it. You end up in the same place regardless.

    Also fuck the spider demon!!! Lack of magic or bows is really hurting. Used up most of my items trying to beat the bastard. I will give up and come back later...
    Killed the fucker!! Time to go to sleep on a win!!

    30 seconds later I thought I'd wander down the corridor to see what was down there only to spend a few moments to admire the incredible lighting. Squeaky wheel noises - what's that? Just a little mine cart no worries.

    Boom.

    Oh fuck oh fuck oh fuck. I stumbled through 1-2, walked through a fog door and, well, shit. Currently hiding out on a balcony praying for my life.

    So far, with 1-1, 1-2, 2-1, 3-1, 4-1 and 5-1 down, Armour Spider is the only boss I've died to. That boss is right down with Bed of Chaos in my "Souls bosses that suck" list.

    Sweet Jesus. I just did the 1-2 boss 1st try. I'm not going to pretend it didn't take 20 minutes, nor that I didn't employ some underhanded tactics to win. But my fucking god, my heart's pounding through my bastard chest.

    Yep, I did it that way. To make matters worse, I'd reverted to human and summoned... and my co-op partner ran straight in and died... so I had to cheese it down when it had the co-op health boost.

    5-1's over quickly. It's basically a less polished Blight Town, though, and that really is saying something.

    Boss is easy if you have magic.

    The Tower Knight was where I gave up in 2009; it killed me in one hit and I just thought there was no way I'd be able to get past it so I went back to Ryu ga Gotoku 3 which came out a few weeks after it.

    @KRadiation It'll be up near where you dropped off, probably at the point you were standing around 5-10 seconds before the fatal fall.

    Maybe we should all be less quick to suicide?

    @KRadiation I nearly did the same until a good shout in here to say spend them first.

    Just had a DS update. Bloody Ďcopyingí thing happens again, just like it used to on the PS4.

    Thought my console crashed then. After having to go on YouTube to find the monumental... ffs. I talked to them abd my tv went deathly black for a few seconds.

    Thankfully it was just a cut scene kicking in.

    Another hint for those doing this the first time... once you've killed the Tower Knight in 1-2, its archstone becomes a great place to farm healing items. Teleport there and double back and there are two of the blue-eyed knight guys you can kill with easy backstabs, each of whom is guaranteed to drop either two half moon grass or two late moon grass. Plus a couple of archers who sometimes drop three crescent moon grass.

    You can then just run back to the archstone, teleport to the same location to reset the mobs and go again.

    Just given that a go, that's going to be helpful.

    1-1 and 1-2 down first try. I gave up on 1-2 in OG DS, I guess all the years Soul's practice is paying off! Got quickly owned by 2-1, though. Got my sword up to +5 so maybe that help.

    Fuck me, the graphics and particularly the lighting really ramp up the immersion.

    Mm only grope so far is the lack of dual sense haptics /triggers. I thought the devs were banging on about them in an interview.

    Ah, there it is. The post after you've managed to kill something that induces stress.

    The euphoria is nice, isn't it
