    Just a quick note, this is true of any bonfires that are attached to a Firekeeper. So Anor Londo will also give you 10.

    I can't remember but don't kindling's also transfer over to NG+ and also if you rest at a fire that someone else has just kindled you gain extra flasks. I think. Something along those lines anyway.

    Kindlings do transfer to NG, also if someone kindles everyone? active in the area get an extra flask up to their own max I think, you hear a sound like the bonfire activating noise.

    Trying out a helpful sunbro faith/dex build with no endurance. Going well so far. If anyone around lvl 30 needs a hand with any boss/area on PC let me know...

    I think I'm addicted, just bought this on PS3 and using a "glass cannon" build with 40 Dex but only 12 Vitality and a +15 Uchigatana. Had a fair amount of trouble with O&S for the first time in a while, got one shotted rolling into a lightning bolt and then lost 36K souls getting twatted on the way back with the Temple Knight and Silver Knight Archer combo.
    Won my first invasion and toying with the idea of going for a Platinum to go with my 1000G.

    Everybody should just calm down a little bit and have a nice cup of tea.

    Old story, happened a month or two ago.

    So I was going through Anor Londo towards O&S - two summons in tow.

    I get invaded. The dude is invincible, like really obviously hacking. He takes out both my co-op pals.

    He just stands there and let's me backstab him ineffectually for a while until he eventually gets bored and finishes me off.

    Now I get a message on Live: "Think about this the next time you try to gang gank."

    Srsly? Like this is now my fault somehow? Well, obviously.

    In the words of Tim from Spaced, WHAT A PRICK.

    Just another day in Lordran.

    I just went back on this. I have lost all impetus to play it. Weird. I got eaten by a chest in Sen's Fortress and that was that. Cba.

    Weird, because earlier today I just got eaten by a chest, and found myself laughing at the game's cruel treachery! I'll be nervous with every chest I near now....

    I've got near the top of Sen's Fortress with some dude lobbing firebomb things around. ON my last Estus flask and in dire need of a bonfire..... fear I'm facing another respawn when I next get back to it :/

    Why look, it's a blog:

    Every chest should get a whacking as standard, the mimics are pretty consistent after that point. Also, there's a bonfire at the top, have a look around where that guy was lobbing the bombs at you, it's just off one of the edges.

    Hah, well, from the fog gate, go left, up two sets of stairs then it's off the edge on your right. Hope that helps, I had to look it up myself as it's not really clear there is one.

    Push on man! That was a moment most of us shared - an absolute rage against unfairness. Mrs TOOTR thought there's been a home invasion...

    BUT - you will never be eaten by a chest unawares again.

    AND - a few more goes and you will fly through that section and get to view it as an old friend that has taught you it's lessons well.

    The game opens up beautifully very shortly.

    Everybody should just calm down a little bit and have a nice cup of tea.

    I can't get the Channeller's Trident drop - no way, no how. There's only five of the fuckers in the entire game, and farming them is hard work to say the least. If you need this weapon for the trophy, why can't it be a guaranteed drop once a playthrough?

    I totally hear your pain. Sen's Fortress was an absolute torment for me the first time through. It was the first, and I think it's probably fair to say last, time I felt genuinely set upon by the game.

    But now, I fly through it in about 5 minutes. Once you get to the top and find the bonfire, it's a piece of fucking cake. Also, Logan is in there if you're a magician, and some really good fucking loot (rings and spells).

    Hang in there man, that really is the one point of the game where it seems to be impossible, and you will scream the word "CUNT!" over and over, but when you get through to the other side and join our noble ranks, we'll be waiting with arms open...


    ...


    ...


    ...and then we'll stab you. ;D

    @Lotos8ter The best place to farm this is after you get out of prison and line up the staircases right. There're two of the fuckers there, and for some reason, it seems to be more likely there anyway. I tried elsewhere like 25 times, but then when I moved, I got it on like my third try.

    I've heard that they recently patched it to drop more frequently. Is that right?

    I was thinking before about loot drops. I think that if there are 5 guys in the level, they should do something like give the 1st guy a 1% chance, the 2nd guy 3%, 3rd guy 9%, the 4th guy 27% and the last of them 81%. I'd be cool with that even if they scaled up the power of the fuckers each time to make the grind a challenge.

    I hate this percentage drop-rate bullshit for "necessary" items.

    Hmm that's odd but then peoples feelings are never wrong :)

    I think it was because Buz had completed it that I felt compelled to do the same - after nearly tossing the thing away after the skeletons at the beginning.

    But then I got swept up in it myself and was lost in it's world, completely, to the point of buying Japanese art books on it and all sorts - and then on my second playthrough did some sections with Buz as co-op and had some absolutely hilarious times. Truly.

    I'd only urge you, or anyone really, but especially you as you are a true seshhead over a variety of game genres, to carry on and beat it as it gave me some of the best enjoyment and satisfaction this gen and that was my experience.

    But if it's not resonating matey - what can you do eh?

    Co-op for a bit with mates? Or park it and sesh something else maybe?

    Plenty more fish in the digital sea.

    Everybody should just calm down a little bit and have a nice cup of tea.

    I love being an invader, but i'm never a malicious one. I actually invaded someone the other day who has 2 people co-oping with him.
    I managed to kill off the 2 co-op people, then just helped the guy complete the painted world. He sent me a message saying "thanks" and I felt like such a nice guy.

    I, too, am a relatively benevolent invader, especially at sl1. Bare hand parry training, materials drops etc. Every now and then I get to kick some asshole off a cliff or something, just to keep my edge etc

    @Telepathic.Geometry - cheers, farmed for about an hour and got plenty of crystal swords (on the way up) but no trident drop. Don't remember struggling like this on my 360 character but I gave up in the end and went for NG+.
    Sometimes its almost like DS is sentient and knows when you're farming...

    I'm far too polite to be an invader.

    My only attempts thus far were ones where I was trying to have fun with the Chameleon spell (when they found me I just bowed and let them kill me), and one intance which played out like this via XBL messages:

    Victim: Please no. I'm trying to kill Artorias.

    Me: Ok, no probs. I'll jump off the cliff to give you the souls if you want.

    Victim: Erm... sure.

    Victim: Wow, you really did it. Thanks!

    @SomaticSense - Hahaha, I never really allow them to kill me, recently i've just been invading in the painted world and i'm opening all the important doors in the level. People message me saying "thanks so much for that." And then I backstab them and finish them off, I mean I am an invader after all.

    Fuck me. I really wish the game would tell you what the loot is before you pick it up.

    It's getting to be a right ballache having to go into the inventory to drop all the swords I'm getting from those goddamn cathedral Balder knights.

    For gods sake sort it From!
