    Cheers again folks!

    I never expected getting anywhere on this because my initial postings in here about it was that i'd borrowed it with a view to buying it as i spotted it cheap. I got a bit of feel for it over that weekend, but the main thing that made me push through those initial frustrations was coming in here!

    For a game that's famed for an isolated, daunting experience, Form (whether accidentally or deliberately) have made it so that it fosters the most helpful and friendly community going :)

    I'm having genuine misery with my SL1 assault on O&S. I'm sure that, in years to come, I'll find it hilarious how many times I've been one swipe of my crappy little club away from winning. Right now it fucking hurts.

    @FuzzyDuck - give us a shout if you want a hand/summon/tips with demon soul's. It is the better game to be honest, and I hope you love it. (tip - the weapon scaling is more powerful in demon's - it's worth considering)

    @quadfather
    at 48 you'll be fine. I'm deeply regretting my "no weapon/armour upgrades" stance. Time to get some Havel's/Chaos+5 action, I think.

    Fuck me, I did o and s first time with solaire. That's surprising! Went through all my estus and some humanity being on the safe side but they're done. Sorted!

    Not sure where to go now. Was expecting to be at Amor for ages!

    Using fury sword now too.

    Thing is, where's the new content? I went into dukes and didnt see anything different. Am at the 2nd bonfire now, pondering

    Did you kill one of these shortly after the boars/lift? http://darksoulswiki.wikispaces.com/file/view/Img0058.jpg/317528730/320x424/Img0058.jpg

    Now back to the first hydra lake next to the basin, follow the lake around to the left, don't go up the ladder to Sif, keep going around the side of the lake. :)

    Right. Wtf is going on! Gone back to basin, cleared it all out, done golem, done dusk, bought a few things off her, gone to where her armour is, quit and reloaded various times.

    What now?

    Can't do spoilers as on phone, sorry

    Been human twice now in Anor Londo and twice I've been invaded. The first guy didn't even have the decency to let me kill two Silver Knights I was fighting at the same time, the other one did but had so much better equipment I didn't stand a chance. The fact that he was somehow in front of me and then able to do a backstab didn't help either.

    @tobymesson - You need to rest at a bonfire and attune a pyromancy spell. Once attuned, you will see the spell available in the slot above the estus flask on your hud. Use the pyro glove and hopefully some fire will spurt out.

    Ok then, finally got to the start of the new content.

    oh my god.

    how the hell do you kill it??!! I must have tried 10 times and I can manage about 1/4 of it's health before I get battered

    @quadfather - Without giving too much away, where does the new content start? And what SL are you?

    Nothing happens until you go to the duke's archive. then when you get there, something is different. Then you have to go somewhere else, the clue being what you saw at the dukes.

    I don't think that's too spoilery

    I'm level 56 and have been levelling vit, end and dex exclusively after getting strength to 16. So 27 in all 3 stats.

    But it's pretty clear that I'm either

    doing something very wrong
    underlevelled
    crap
    all 3

    @quadfather

    If you're struggling then EpicNameBro on Youtube has done a walkthrough of the new content. I haven't watched it (don't want to spoil it for myself) but if it's like any of his other Dark Souls videos then I'm sure it'll be very helpful.

    @senso-ji - good call.

    I stuck at it last night for at least 2 hours using different methods - circling for ever to try and learn the patterns, different weapons, pyro, heavy armour, light armour, exploiting the environment, and zippo. Zero results.

    I'm off to youtube :)

    Is that for the first encounter?

    I had a much easier time after I stopped blocking his stamina-sucking "sweat attack" (looks like a load of sweat coming at you, doesn't hurt). Also got the trick of dodging his lightning. And only a single swipe against his side when possible - not getting greedy and exposing myself. :)

    Ah man, just watching enb's vid of it. Quote - "this is my 3rd attempt, I just spent the first 2 watching him"

    He's going to bloody do it on his 3rd attempt isn't he :)

    The man has some talent, that's for sure.

    @Architect_z - I think you'll be about right, but it's hard to tell so far - this is the first monster I've encountered.

    Though I think it's From Software's way of saying "Come and have a look at the new content now you've mastered the standard version of dark souls..."

    Yes, first encounter

    Yeah, I noticed that stamina sucking attack, and how he always whacks you straight afterwards, so it always takes a lot of health.

    I'm using the wrong tactics for sure - I keep getting panicky which leads to greediness

    @Quadfather - good lightning resistance armour and I think I wore the ring that lets you walk on water (YKWIM) without taking a movement penalty. That enemy does a lot of damage with the lightning spew and as its in water there's an AOE with it as well. Just learn the attack, sidestep and 2 hits then get your stamina back up. It also has an attack that saps all your stamina, so beware. Don't wander around the back as it has a poison tail swipe, stick to the sides

    And the bosses get A LOT harder after that one, so enjoy your holiday :-P

    Fiat Lux
