    Heh. Defeated Harvel on my second go since coming home. Nice ring. Can wear some pretty big armour now without being a lumbering mess.

    It's so ACES because it has a (fairly quick, for a large weapon) straight R1 attack that works really well in corridors. Dig one out and have a play, they really compliment some of the more straight sword moves well :)

    Yeah, that often happens with DS. That's how I originally killed capra. The motherfucker.

    I guess there's 3 ways with Havel

    1) get him right in the middle of the room so you can constantly circle strafe him and backstab when you can
    2) opening the door from the bottom with the master key, go outside and he will tentatively follow you a little way outside then go back inside. Use this time to hit him
    3) come back and stove him in later
    4) Poison him and wait for him to die

    Alright! We're getting somewhere - got Sif to about 20% of his health yesterday! Now I actually think I can beat him. I know the patterns now and how to evade his attacks. Now to only find the right moments to strike back.

    Looking forward to tonight :)

    I just did a full windows reinstall. Steam says that this game uses cloud saving. It doesn't. That doesn't really bother me. I enjoy it enough not to mind playing the beginning stages again.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    That sounds well dodgy. Is there any way you can find out for definite that your games have successfully been saved to the cloud?

    I'm intrigued :) normal sens scythe or the catacombs one?

    In other news I'm a bit more comfortable with it again now and cleared my way to the pariah to start farming balder knights for that elusive side sword

    By the way, has anyone managed to get the 60fps patch working? I tries it last night and while it worked it slowed the game right down. Still 60fps smooth but too slow overall. Anyone else had this? Had to remove it in the end

    Hmmm. I've found a new glitch... On my BB'd and non-BB'd new characters; I can no longer get the "ultimate" miracles from the covenant leaders. I've given over 100 eyes of death to nito and not had a single greatsword dance! Similarly, I cannot get the final one from the sunbros - even with Gwyn's soul and uber faith. Anyone else had that?

    100 eyes of death?
    How do you get those then? One for every person who is cursed that dies in their world or yours?

    I've had Eyes of Death drop from the Basilisks in Depths. I think I have about 10 in my inventory. Not sure what to do with them though!

    just defeated the hydra. Pretty easy. hardest part was getting to the thing with his water cannons. Dropped a dragon scale. going to.. save it! and not use it on the drake sword. Know that something much better will need it later. Noticed a beach and ladder so going to explore that next.

    On the drake sword. Its been invaluable, but it is like the noob tube in a way. feel a but guilty getting it. Saying that if i fucked around chopped of the tail by accident and got it. I be like oh yeah!

    Yeah, that's how you get them, they're used to level up the Gravelord covenant for the unique weapon/miracle or for 100% achievements/trophies.

    I've heard that the BB glitch can cause problems like that and never gone near it myself. I think the only thing to do is put it down to experience and start a fresh character without doing the glitch as it obviously has unforeseen consequences

    @AcidSnake - You can farm them from the basilisks... Or, as I've been doing, have a new character in the Burg at SL4 Gravelord signing :lol:
    So many new players come in looking sheepish - many I admit expect to help me or fight the monsters. They soon panic when I get bored of them ineffectually swiping at the hollows in my world. Seems a shame to kill them for E'soD but that's what being a Gravlord is all about - right?

    @Lotos8ter Ah, cool, thanks for the info. Just reading up on the covenant and, wow, had no idea about this covenant at all! And that miracle looks great. Oh well, something for NG+ or new character. Always new things in this game! :-)

    I am a Gravelord but haven't ever cursed anyone (haven't even touched this game in months tbh) so wasn't sure how the gravelords got them...
    I'll most probably be back once the expansion hits maybe a few days earlier to follow one of those Elathron Advanced PvP training courses...

    @joelstinton - It will rapidly lose it's appeal I can assure you!!!! You'll notice it doesn't (Dragon)scale (sorry, couldn't resist) any damage so when you get stats to about 24/30, the scaled damage will overtake it on upgraded weapons... Keep playing around with weapons in the Burg to find one's you're comfortable with using - many will become invaluable as you learn new tricks.
    Keep the scales for other weapons (like the MLGS) or dragon signing.

    @AcidSnake - Heheh - no worries! The curse affects 3 people, but everyone in your area can see the sign just like a white one (I think the limits are the same too). If you wanna PvP practice at some point, just drop me a line on XBL dude. I'm taking a breather atm to get my cheevos above 25k (yay to the 2% rebate goodness - yeah, right...) but I'm happy to jump back into DaS if to practice duel.

    @Elathron ok thanks.

    I'm settled in the game now. Sort of got my head around most things so starting to experiment. Finally brought some pryomancy and healing spells as well. I got a bastard sword and a couple of rapiers to experiment with as well, just brought a upgrade for the bastard sword.

    I got some great armour though which i can wear because of harvel ring.

    @Architect_z - supposed to help riposte damage using a spear I think. Could be wrong

    @Architect_z - It buffs your counter-attack damage using thrusting weapons (spears, rapiers & some other weapons, notably the greatsword if you manage to R2 it while someone is still recoiling - good luck with that!). Basically, when an enemy recoils from your shield, or immediately after they've "struck but not bounced" (or if you manage to strike an enemy while they are swinging) if you do an R1 attack without holding up your shield - you'll do more damage and have a higher chance of stunning your opponent. It's possible to do about 1.5x your normal damage with one swing/stab - more than that with the ring on. It sadly does nothing to riposte or back-stab damage.

    When you get to a bridge, be very careful. You'll have two choices on where to go.

    Left goes to the 'back door' entrance to darkroot - there's some buggers in there. And right goes to the 'other further back area' of darkroot, with especially hard buggers.

    If you take it very easy on both paths, you'll be able to see what you're up against, but really don't rush this bit

    @Elathron & quad - Cheers. So is it worth it? I suppose if youre using heavy damage weapons it would work well?
