    And Conan's Pratchettian counterpart says that the most important things in life are hot soup, a warm bed and good dentistry.

    If God said “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you,” to Mary - does that mean he loves bukkake?

    So where am I up to after this weekend?

    Level 20, now got my own repair & reinforcement boxes. Crippled lightning demon thingy is dead, and I've had a bit of a mooch around the Dark Gardens or whatever they're called.

    Not killed the two gargoyles yet. Figure I really want some help, but still struggling to find humanity.

    Freed what's-his-face and got a shiny sun medal thing. Don't know what that's for. Gave 2000 souls to the cleric fellow in Firelink Shrine and received some apparently useless information on kindling in return.

    Humph.

    Still enjoying it though!

    So you've found the blacksmith?

    For the gargoyles, you could buy a bit of humanity from the undead female merchant in the sewer pipe that goes to the undead burg. Then, if you apply some pine resin to your weapon (found in the undead burg) and summon solaire, you should find the fight a hell of a lot easier

    My mate has started playing this game, and hes been killing all the NPCs, lol. Hes never gonna complete it, surely.

    Trying to update my 1st ever character, hes a strength/faith character, but actually has good stats. I wanna use a massive hammer for pvp, any recommendations? (I already have a Dragontooth+5 - Which is awesome)

    @quadfather Yep; found two blacksmiths now.

    "Buy humanity," you say? Not sure of the merchant you mean - the only one I know (Charlatans) in Undead Burg is male I think: the one with the annoying voice.

    I'll have a look around next session.

    @onestepfromlost - ah yeah, sorry. Forgot about that

    Which means it's pointless advice then, because you can get any amount of humanity from the depths

    doh, sorry

    Heh; worry not!

    I'll keep mucking about until I find some humanity somewhere.

    I still have some n00b questions, like what is happening when I hear a whooshing sound, see a flash, which seems to be absorbed by my character, a bit like when you get souls from killing things, but I'm not in a fight and nothing else seems to be happening?

    Are the grey figures I keep seeing other online players? What about the coloured, but still transparent, ones?

    @EMarkM - that noise is when someone else has just used a bonfire that you've kindled and that you are near. (I think) You'll notice that you get an extra estus in your flask after it happens

    Grey figures are other players running around in their games. Coloured players are (normally near a bonfire) stationary players that aren't currently moving

    @quadfather Ah cool, that all makes sense. Was wondering where those odd couple of extra shots in my flask had come from!

    Finally ordered this, based on hearing how completely amazing it is from all corners of the Internet. If it's rubbish, I shall fill this thread with profanity.

    I thought the orange/asorb/flash thing was when people kindled the bonfire you were close to, or when someone liked your soapstone message.

    My faith based holy knight RP build isn't going so well. Despite having 43 faith and a divine longsword plus 5 he's doing bugger all damage. I was aiming for an occult longsword as it scales A for faith but getting the ember may prove to be too hard. I'm starting to see why ENB said faith users got a bit screwed with this game. I'm going to stick with it for now as helping people on bosses is pretty fun but I would advise against the build for newbies.

    For the emperor!

    @FanBoysSuck - The Occult ember is pretty easy to get, its the Large Devine ember which is very hard to obtain. Have you got into the painted world yet?

    @Architect_z I just got there and opened the main gate. Getting my ass handed to me though by everything unless I zeus bolt them. I should be able to get the ember easy enough...getting the white chunks to actually forge the damn thing is going to be the issue I think. Seriously my damage is rated at around 330 but the split resistance is really causing some issues. O+S are going to be great fun after this! I may have to cave and start pumping strength. It's a bit of a shame finding out a build isn't viable. Stats sitting at:
    vit:22
    att:16
    end:22
    str:14
    dex:10
    int:9
    fth:43

    Rocking elite knight armour +5 and a thief mask + 6. Divine longsword + 5 with a kite shield + 5.

    For the emperor!

    @FanBoysSuck - Not bad so far. I like the faith stat, but i'd level your strength and dex to be able to wield the claymore, as an occult+5 claymore is really quite good.

    That's a good call dude, the stats are pretty mental for it! I'll start getting it upgraded as a backup to my beloved longsword :)

    @FanBoysSuck - Gotta put this in spoiler form, if you choose to kill off solaire, his sunlight sword scales A with occult too but you get a tad bit more damage output.

    I don't think anything scales 'S' with faith which kinda sucks. :(

    there's only 1 attack you really use it for, his Dark Magic rain you just roll backwards, his versiong of Dark bead you roll to the side, the final one is the one where you need to either turn around and walk forward with a high magic absorb shield (Havel's is especially good for this if you have the strength to use it), time your dodges perfectly or use the pendant.

    The problem I found with Manus is that he has next to no tell time on which of the magic attacks he is going to do. Saying that found him fairly easy with my tank character but incredibly hard with my magic character.

    When it comes to big weapons I've a soft spot for the Demon Great Axe and Machete, although they're not clubs as such. When buffed, they're MAXIMUM DAMAGE etc.

    Smough's Hammer has a fairly entertaining animation on one of its R2s I think, looks a bit like you've crapped yourself. Not convinced about their PvP utility, mostly people spam roll attacks where the large/great clubs are particularly nasty. I get killed by standard R1s more often than most as I've an irresistable urge to attempt parries against them: I'd imagine you'd more normally find yourself getting backstabbed to angry shreds.

    @fiery_jackass - I'd agree, but my faith/dex character is easily too powerful. I've done 1v3's killing every person, with not much hassle at all. But i'm a hammer-man at heart. I like BIG weapons, and I wanna try and pwn humans with these weapons. I'm gonna try the Dragontooth+5 first, as I love that weapon to pieces. Plus it provides a magic/fire defence bonus aswell to help against all the dark magic/combustion gankers.

    Also gonna try the Grant as i've got 30 faith on my character. Also the Dragon Great Axe with that AoE attack. ^_^
