Well i'm very proud of myself! Went back to play with the intention of killing Taurus even if it took me hours. Managed to kill it first time (by using a weapon enchantment item), then kept beating my new targets until I rang the first bell a few minutes ago. I'm basically back to where I got up to before now! And all in a days work. I'm just missing the gargoyle axe thing but I got a couple others instead.
So, where should I be headed now? Last time I wandered off into the forest and met a few seemingly impossible ends so i'm guessing/ hoping that's not the intended next area. Should I be going down the elevator now?
