    No worries :)

    I'll check out this weapon anyway, see if I can make use of it.

    Bloody hell, 5-2 is a drain on my time :)

    Managed to get back up to to the slug nest. Climbed up (having nearly got killed by a swarm of mozzies on the way, attacked it, fell down, died! :mad: Managed to get back and knock it down though. That weapon looks proper smart but I will never be able to use it due to it's faith requirement. Oh well. I do have the shamans armour though which seems to have pretty similar stats to my black leather so I may wear that just for a change!

    I have however cleared the town area and unlocked the shortcut. I may go back to the nexus now as I have a about 20k souls I don't want to lose!

    Plus I think I can get the second chance miracle which may help with the boss!

    Really stupid question, but generally, whats the best right / left hand combo. I usually have sword and bow in right, shield and catalyst in left. Wondering whether to switch my catalyst to right so I can block while casting magic.....

    I did try that breifly a while back but some reason I struggled with pressing L1 before R1 to fire the bow. So I switched back. To be fair I seem to have the same issue with the catalyst in the left. Clearly I lack basic co-ordination.

    May switch it again and stick with it this time.

    I normally have a shield in L1, and main weapon in R1. Then bow in L2, and talisman in R2.

    However, that changes if I need to buff weapons - I have to put the catalyst in L2 so that the weapon I want to buff is 'active' when I switch to the catalyst

    To quickly switch from bow to shield I just toggle with pressing left on the D-pad. Even when I'm in aiming mode. I think it's a matter of getting used to it. So I struggle when my bow is in the right hand.

    Yup, that's how I do it. If I put the bow in my right hand, I instantly turn french.

    So if I prefer the bow in my right hand, does that make me French?

    No, it's just what you're used to. But I bet you'll start whiffing of onions if you swap it to your left hand

    You are obsessed with the french. Too much red wine, obviously.

    Was a surprisingly easy battle so I'm wondering if it's not actually the end yet.... he said something about mephistophelies (sp). Dont think I've met him yet....

    How good is his gloom armour? Think it may be a bit heavy for my char.

    @robc84
    I like it a lot and it offers good poison and think magic resistance unless you have already old king dorans armour which is one of the best.
    Mephistopheles is a girl hehehe and this isn't a spoiler as other characters won't mention how to make her appear but you will need yurt killed like you have and pure black character tendency. Pure black character tendency you can get by killing npcs (choose unimportant ones) or invading as a black phantom and she should appear on the 2nd floor of the nexus .

    @Dangerous_Dan
    A while back we both wondered how killing yurt or not might aid the Mephistopheles side quest and after some reading I found that apparently if you kill yurt in 3-2 it will aid changing your character tendency to black (and so getting Mephistopheles to appear quicker) because yurt is considered a good npc whilst in 3-2 but if you kill him in the nexus it's considered neutral .

    Havent even thought about char tendency. Is there any way to check it?

    Anyway, I think I'll just play through the game and worry about tendency events in a later play through.

    Armour looks good but pretty heavy

    @robc84
    View from the world map (think it's start to bring up and scroll along),each archstone has a statue/figure representing a world -the darker this figurine is the the closer you are to pure black character tendency;likewise the lighter it is the closer it is to pure white tendency . A rule of thumb if you have killed the npc merchant at the start of 2-1, the npc in the corridor at the start of 4-2, the npc merchant 3-1, and maybe a few followers in the nexus you should get pure black chracter tendency .

    Any recommendations on which level to do next?

    I'm tempted to just do them in order (1_3, 2-3, 3-3, 4-3, 5-3) and save 1-4 for last.

    I went through 2-2 again today and managed to get my dragonstone shards and pure to make my dragon sword +5!

    Didnt realise I had to kill an archdemon before doing 1-3. So I took out storm king. That thing is a bit lame for an archdemon. Just hid by the rocks snd pounded him with arrows as he flew overhead :D

    Gonna check out 1-3 next I think.

    1-3 and 1-4 will be a challenge. If you continue down that path then you'll finish the best game of recent years soon.

    Well 4-3 is done now. Maybe I'll save 1-3 and 1-4 for last then.

    Question, are all the final parts of the worlds just boss fights like 4-3?

    Pretty much.

    I'd ignore black world and character tendency for now. Its much easier when a) you're used to it and b) play offline to manipulate it easier

    Its also a massive twat getting from pure black to pure white. And the game is harder on pure black

    Yeah I'm not going to worry about wt. Just going to try to complete. Then maybe set a couple of chars going, one for pb and one for pw.

    not sure my build is that great this time tbh. I have end 25, vit 23, dex 26, int 17, mag 22, str 15. Not really specialised in anything!

    As suggested I'll work through 2-3 to 5-3 then go bk to finish world 1.

    How does ng+ work on this game?
