    I'm thinking poison resistance ring and possibly regenerators ring. Not sure if I have plague resistance, will have to check....
    That's not necessary at a christening.
    You haven't met my family.....

    No main reason. Its just that I normally roll female chars in demons to access particular armour sets. I always assume incorrectly that everyone else does too

    Did the first part of 5-1 this morning up to first fog door. I know I have missed some treasure over to the left but its being guarded by a black phantom. May have to come back for that....

    Lovely place 5-2.... :D

    Beautiful isn't it.

    Confused by your post - do you mean 5-1, or 5-2, as you've mentioned both?

    No worries just couldn't work it out :)

    First fog door. That's just past the giant depraved one isn't it?

    And the phantom on the left wields a meat cleaver weapon yes?

    Thats the one. Killed the giant depraved one. Black phantom slaughtered me first time. I reckon I could take him on land but cant dodge in swamp! Need to lure him somewhere I think.

    Its strange how those wierd spiky things in swamp dont respawn.

    There's a few islands near the phantom you can lure it too. Makes it a bit easier. Ish :)

    Giant depraved ones respawn don't they? I honestly can't remember.

    Fun through that fog door :p

    Not the depaved ones. Those things that live in the swamp. Poison jellies (just checked wiki).

    Think I may come back for bp....

    Yeah, I know what you mean about the spiky jelly things. Can't remember whether giant depraved enemies respawn though. Think they do.

    Yeah, the bp isn't that hard

    Yeah its just hard when I get bogged down in swamp. His meat cleaver can kill me pretty quick....

    Fuck fuck fuck. Reached that island with the 4 depraved ones. Took out 3 with bow but the one to the right spotted me as I was sniping him. Got caught in bog. Dead. Probably my fault as I switched out my theif ring for regenerators ring as was low on grass. Otherwise I dont think he would have spotted me.

    Is that part optional though? Seems away from the main 'path' (if you can call it that in 5-2). Shouldn't take long to get bk there as think I have all loot from 1st part.

    Yes optional and if you have adjudicator's shield(esp.if upgraded) sling it on your back and it will keep healing you(to an extent). Plus it allows you to keep use of your thief and guess poison ring as well as saving you on on grass usage.....dang not one thing that can be construed as a spoiler/allusion I'm getting better hehehe 😋😎

    Well done Kitt, not one spoiler :-)

    Yeah I assumed it was optional, but also assumed there would be something good there considering how well guarded it is.

    I actually have pretty good poison resistance I think from my black leather armour. So I've been using cling ring and either thief or regenerators ring. I have lots of lotus too.

    In hindsight I should have made a run for the island that the 3 giants were on and taken him on there. I can take one down by melee without too many probs on dry land :)

    @robc84
    Hehhehehhe and yep your suspicions are right there is something over there but with your build it wouldn't be of any use really. If your in body form and as you said your armour has good poison resistance you could have the adjudicator's shield on your back as well regenerators ring which would allow you to hold off using poison plant healing items at the first/second time you become poisoned. With the adjudicator's shield(esp.if upgraded ) and the regenerators ring combined you won't notice the effects on your health of the poison for quite sometime;plus with not needing the poison ring equipped here you have a spare slot.

    No further forward on 5-2. Killed the 4 giants (took forever and 100 plus arrows) and all they were bloody protecting were stones of ephemeral eyes. I already have 20 of those! Grrrr....

    Also didnt realise how dangerous those mozzies are up close!

    Did warn you about the mozzies :)

    Yeah its annoying that those giants are guarding fuck all. That's demons souls for you. Still you're approaching the end of the level. There's also a very useful shortcut you can open up soon too

    I thought it must be decent to be guarded by 4 giants. Waste of time and arrows in the end. Oh well.

    Yeah I'm guessing it's that bridge before you drop down into the swamp. Will be glad when I don't have to go back in there. Horrible place!

    When you look back the levels in DS are actually not very long at all, but they seem to take forever to get though. Maybe it's just me though....

    Its not you. First time in new levels takes an age. Yes I think its that bridge. You'll know when you get to the 'town' area. There's a few goodies strewn around the level too. Done the bp yet?

    Yeah did the BP. Wasn't too bad as I managed to fight it on dry land! Must be approaching the town area now. Think I have all the loot from the swamp now. May just whack on my poison resistance ring and have one last look around. Don't want to be going back in there if I can help it!

    Most of the enemies aren't too bad in world 5 so far, it's the environment that gets you. If it's not a poison swamp there is always a ledge to fall off of....

    Yup. I think that's why they designed 5.1 the way they did. All high ledges and chasms. And just when you've mastered that they give you a fuck off poision swamp :)

    Did you search the slug area in 5-2?

    Yep, dread to think what's in 5-3!

    I think I got some suckerstone or something. Tried not to stay around there too long tbh!

    There's a weapon near the slugs

    5-3 is....different. Is the most emotional level imo. Especially if you factor the music in

    Ah ok, I'll be sure to go back and have a look.

    Not been a massive fan of 5-2. Bit too dark and dreary. What else would you expect from a poison swamp I suppose. Wasn't much to 5-1 either. Hopefully 5-3 will be better!

    Sorry I mistook where you were in 5-2 when I said what I' did before.... There is a unique weapon past the first fog door but again it's not very good for your build although you will need to get it if you are going for one of the trophies.
