Yeah, I'd like to do that too - but I never got the soulsucker spell - that's why I think it's ng+, because I'm sure that spell is from the woman in black's soul and you can only choose to kill her and get her soul at the end of ng
Hmm, possibly. I don't really remember the particulars, it was already a couple of years ago. But I remember it was taking me less than two minutes per run - spawn in, run up killing everything in the way, soulsucker the skeleton, be annoyed at not having got the Pure Bladestone, evacuate with the spell (or was it a miracle?), repeat. Wonderful times.
That's ng+ only though isn't it?
For my farming, since I was coming up from the bottom, I used the Soulsucker spell, essentially one-hitting the black skeleton from behind.
Not only that, it's also quite tricky to kill and not be killed by that beast in pure black world tendency.
Pure black tendency + that skeleton + 40 times? Jesus H Christ, that must have taken AAAAAGGESSS
Takes a couple of backstabs and 2 handed work while not getting hit by one of his jump slicing attacks. Oh and you may think about the crescent falchion, it makes things much easier as mentioned above.
