    @Dr_Mech - The sanctuary guardian's tail is annoyingly simple to get. Just come back to the Garden when you've killed Manus and you'll find some of his jolly chums have moved in.
    didnt even realise you can get the guardians tail, had no luck at all with the other tail type boss in the DLC, his tail is never low enough to bloody hit!

    Two hours..TWO HOURS...and still no boss kills.

    Have a guess who I'm fighting.

    That's right...Kalameet, I know his attack patterns but it is a case of fucking up once and you're done for, not to mention I'm doing this solo because I feel I have to redeem myself after needing help with Artorias. First hour was tail cutting, eventually got that using Great Combustion and my maxed out Ascended Pyro glove (go glove, lovely glove).

    Still when I get back from work at 8:30ish today I'll give him another shot, Homing Crystal soul mass did bugger all damage so left, farmed a wee bit, bought a second could of Soul Spear which did a fuckton of damage to him, will be slinging Crystal and regular soul spears like they're going out of fashion.
    crown of dusk, bellowing dragoncresst ring, crystal soul spear, cystal soul spear, crystal soul spear, crystal soul spear, panic, soul spear, x8, panic again, cystal homing soulmass x10, and relax

    @onestepfromlost - Hehe. You wait until you reach the lofty heights of 90+int... You won't need that many spells at all, for the most part the bugger was flinching every time a CSS hit him inna chops :lol:
    EDIT - He also bleeds nicely seemingly, however his regen. does put a dampener on that so you have to build the dmg fast - good luck :D

    @Dr_Mech

    Coat a strong weapon with Gold Pine resin, he doesn't like that (like all Dragons in the game).

    Kalameet has no worthwhile weakness against lightning. When I was first fighting him I used all forms of damage and lightning was pretty much the weakest. He certainly doesn't have a weakness to lightning anywhere near as strong as the other dragons.

    I've been helping others with Kalameet and lightning damage buff on a weapon does make a difference. Maybe not a huge one, but it does help. Kalameet is tough, though.

    What SL are people DLCing at then?

    I've had a few cracks at Artorias tonight, almost done him a couple of times, not disheartened though as I'm SL81 at the moment - I reckon if I went away and put 3 each into VIT, END and FTH it'd be much more manageable. Is SL90 too high though?

    Already half planning a pyro / sorcery pure INT build as well, can't wait to crack on with that!!

    I'd say 81 is too high to be be honest. But it all depends on whether you wasted levels by putting points into stats you ended up not using.

    I'm normally around 50-60 when I take it on using a focused build with no wasted stats. Usually I'll get the Lordvessel and do Ariamis before then venturing into the DLC.

    Do it as high as you want :)

    It can be fairly tough, and in Ng+ it is much closer to the Demon's Souls NG+ in that it's tough almost regardless of SL.

    Remember, the bosses in the DLC have much more HP than their equivalents in the vanilla game. So even though you don't seem to be danaging them as much, it doesn't necessarily mean you are underlevelled.

    I beat Artorias by myself! Only took me ohhh about 14 times! Turns out the Balder Side Sword +10 is pretty good! :D

    @Elathron: Eh? I thought that after level 50 intelligence, it didn't change much, like the way the endurance stat maxes out at 40... Am I completely wrong in that assumption?

    @Telepathic.Geometry - You'd think it doesn't matter much but the TCC with 99int has a magic adjustment of 315; making it even more powerful than it was at 50int where it was sat at about 270/80m/a. The difference here can be demonstrated on an undead soldier, an increase of 400 damage with a CSS says that the points weren't wasted!!! My char also benefits from doing over 1800HP of damage (on average) with the dark bead noob-combo, but I dislike the spell so I mainly use CMW and the other Crystal spells. I'd say that a higher SL cahracter does suffer from points giving less return, but, the reward for finishing a stat is actually greater than you'd think. Personally I reckon everyone should try a character who goes as high as he/she can on the SL route; high level PvP is a dman sight more challenging than it looks as all the tank armour in the world isn't going to stop a 99st great(insert weapon here) from slamming you to the floor!
    EDIT - Also, you mention endurance - on my main it's now 89. It's the next thing I intend on getting to 99. The reasoning is that I'll be able to equip my char how I want with far less restriction than previously. The fact that he has skin which is more difficult to bleed than a Rhino's is just an added bonus.

    If you're a faith build, you can use great magic barrier to help you in the kalameet fight.

    @Architect_z - The living ones do. Haven't managed to bleed Manus (never get the chance to build the meter up due to his relentless nature) but all the others bleed to a greater or lesser extent.

    @Elathron - I wouldn't rule it out :)

    One of them is around 25/25/25/25 (vit,end,str,fai), and the other one (bizarrely) is around 25/25/16/16 - yet this one is already in anor londo. Which is strange for me - I normally level like mad before going that far

    Though the latter one has rubbish kit.

    I really shouldn't play DS late at night after a few beers :)

    Right so...

    Killed Kalameet solo, came back from work and nailed him first try, yay!

    But fuck Manus, yeah I did him solo but four fucking hours of the same boss fight, I wonder why people say Kalameet is harder, Kalameet has huge tells of his attacks, Manus has practically none and two of his Dark magic attacks have the same tell, the 'dark magic rain' and the 'dark magic implosion' both look the same but you've got split seconds to decide to dodge or to use the pendant.


    Tried some invading in Oocile Township but for every 1 fight I had against an honourable person, I had 5 that were just gankers with two or three people just waiting to wail on you and they weren't just co-oping either, they were summoning red sign phantoms as well since I died just as they summoned one.

    Though I had one very strange invasion.

    Picture this, you spawn in a guys world and there is three Solaires (one normal and two golden phantoms)...they made no move to attack me but just praised the sun, so I broke out my channelers trident, did my dance and left.

    Praisin' ain't easy.

    I must have one of the most leisurely 1st play throughs of DS, I'm farming for chunks before Gwyn having started this char in Dec 2011.
    Got past O&S with Elathron's assistance last year some time and am finally about to finish. SL 104 hahaha... I do love the game but feel I haven't quite played it as intended....

    @MrV333 - Sheesh dude!!! I thought I hadn't seen you on in a while, but that long? I'm still playing a few hours (lol) every week if you need any assistance buddy... Speaking of that, still gotta try to summon Dr_Mech tonight to drop a few gubbins off :confused:

    @Dr_Mech - SO long as the level is closer it shouldn't be an issue. But then, we worked out I could summon you with my 134?

    @Dr_Mech - I once got summoned for co-op, I was dressed as ornstein, in full armour, with his spear, and the person who summoned just happened to be a replica of smough. The person who invaded us must have been really confused

    Ah the Sunbro is only 118 so he might not be close close enough.

    All I can picture is a Smough and Ornstein roadtrip buddy movie now.
