    I couldnít sleep because of this game. Itís got me now. Couldnít fucking stop thinking about it.

    A newbie, who could never get on with them - probably wasted £150 on Souls games - and now itís clicked.

    My success is down to taking time. Taking it slow. Protect your life and donít rush in.

    The euphoria 😍

    *Edit: success mainly down to help from some of you guys - thanks.

    Best advice I can give for any PS5 game is close the apps when you've finished with them for now until a patch comes. Every single issue I've had with the console up to now has been born out of either quick resuming from rest mode or using one of the cards to jump to a section quickly.
    This.

    And the rest of the Souls games too.

    Remember, if he really wants to get in the clique, we all pretend DS2 is terrible to annoy Wunty 🤣

    Haha yeah, Iím in deep now. Kind of chuffed it clicked. It only took 4 years on and off with them. Still bricking it for later bosses though.

    Bloodborne would need to be next. That was my nemesis. The amount of times I installed and uninstalled was ridiculous.

    @Rogueywon what do you mean by -1s?

    I got all the way up to and past the arrow machine thing on first attempt and then accidentally fell to my doom when trying to drop down to the level below to get an item. Was human as well.

    Pretty gutting tbh. Kept thinking 'I must unlock a shortcut soon' but nope. Also no grass whatsoever in the level and I totally depleted my supply. Did I miss something as it seems like a hell of a long run back to where I was?

    This is my first proper setback in terms of losing progress. 1-1, 1-2 and 2-1 were all fairly straightforward although the spider took 5 attempts and rinsed most of my consumables.

    Should I buy grasses or is 3-1 the exception in terms of giving you sod all as you play through?

    @muddyyfunster By *-1s, I mean the first stage through each of the five archstones. The first proper section you do, which ends with Phalanx, is 1-1, because it's the first stage through the first archstone. The first section through the second archstone is 2-1, while the second section through the first archstone is 1-2.

    By and large, the difficulty scales up the further you get through each of the archstones. 1-2 is fairly gentle, possibly because the game is really treating 1-1 as an extended introduction. But once you've got 1-2 down, you probably want to go and beat the first boss through each of the other archstones, as that will give you a smoother difficulty curve than pressing on to 1-3.

    In case you're interested, in 4-1 there are a couple of items that might help with 'health management'. There are also 2 interesting weapons, and a lot of souls early on if you want to farm. Opponents can be hard at first, blunt damage helps.

    Yeah, 4-1 has some good stuff. The Crescent Scimitar +1 is great for casters, due to damage scaling with magic and restoring mp on hit. Unfortunately, the mobs on the way to it can be a nasty shock for caster builds, as they don't give you much space to cast, likely pushing you back onto your melee abilities.

    Also... 10,000th post!

    1-2 gentle?

    Tell that to me, last night, cowering up on a balcony for ten minutes trying to gain my composure as the Knight spunked blue magic towards me every 5 seconds waiting for me to come down and face my comeuppance.

    Yeah, 1-2 isn't too bad, and it's fairly short. Then 1-2 before moving on to other areas. I find 2-1 to be OK too, so could do that before 1-2. I leave 3-1 till after 4-1, then onto 5-1 (which I'm about to do tonight)

    Is 3-1 the one with the fucking creepy sounding enemies? Vaguely remember that's about as far as I got on PS3 way back when.

    I must have done shit in some ungodly haphazard order back then. I definitely didn't do 1-2, bit I remember doing 2-1, possibly 2-2, 3-1. All over the fucking place.

    Iím going slower than you guys, trying to only play when Iíve got time to properly concentrate, which isnít as often as Iíd like.
    Done 1-1, 1-2 and 1-3 will be next in an effort to get to Yuria. Then 1-3 because I canít wait to see it.

    Iím confusing sections of Dark Spuls with this, was trying to remember where the Capra Demon was. Have faced the bosses so far but will absolutely be cheesing the spider cunt... though I donít have, and donít particularly want to spend the levels in order to wield the bow 😗

    Don't forget that you can't get to 1-3 until you've killed an arch demon. Which is basically killing one of the end bosses in worlds 2 to 5.

    World 2 is probably the easiest final boss. But the boss of 2-2 might have something to say about that...

    World 4 has the easiest bosses, but the rest of the levels are not quite as generous.

    Yeah, it's a toss up really. 2-2 I find generally takes me ages to clear out. Whereas I can zip through world 4. Well, if it was empty of monsters, I could :)

    Right. I knew I should have let Rom kill you.

    Don't worry Rom killed me plenty. You saved me from a fate worse than a fate worse than death 😉

    Bugger it, Yuria will have to wait- thanks folks. Iíve only got Soul Arrow as the single offensive spell, having bought everything from the lower level magic guy that appears at the Nexus... I can feel a wiki session coming on.

    Went back to 1-1 to finish some loose ends. Was pretty satisfying feeling stronger and one hit killing most of the soldiers. Downed that red eyed Knight and got the items by the dragons (immense audio from them btw). I think it might have made 2-1 easier if I'd grabbed those items earlier but nevermind.

    Also discovered that going from the 1-3 bonfire back to kill the two blue eyed Knights and the crossbowmen seems like a good way to farm half moon grass and a few souls in the early game.

    @muddyyfunster

    Yeah the noise of the dragons is really in your face isn't it. Full on.

    Yup, that's a good spot to farm for stuff. Plus with quicker load times, it's even easier.

    There's a really good farm spot in 4-2 but you really need the evacuate miracle to complete it.

    Is it worth putting enough points into faith for evacuate? Am kind of magic focused at the moment albeit with 11 strength for a 100% shield. Tempted to get some miracles but worried about spreading my skills too thinly. I'm no souls expert but I know you can screw up a character by leveling too many things.

    The dragon on 1-2 was absolutely overwhelming with the Pulse headset last night after I'd messed with the settings on it. Absolutely incredible audio. Bombarded with the roar of flames up top and the paranoia I felt when I could hear it circling around outside as I traversed the under section can't be understated either.

    Yes yes yes yes yes it is!

    You only need 10 faith and 40mp - it's not a high requirement
