Amen to that!! Just make sure you light the second bonfire and kindle it a couple of times. It took me a while to get used to the enemies here, but I found that fire weapons help a lot. They are good against Nito too. Just be sure to have a divine weapon handy to take out his mini-skeletons beforehand.
Fucking hell, Tomb of the giants is a bit cunt infested isn't it?
It's taken me 2 hours just to get to Nito. I ended up at his door with 1 estus flask.
Gave it a go anyway and died.
