    Or for a dex build the B.S.S. is really good. I put this in a spoiler because one of the forum posters gets a little sensitive about this.

    You're looking for the tunnel near the huge grub thing near the 1st bonfire in Blighttown (the 'proper route' via the Depths not from the swamp). There's one of those big fat roaring things in it. Off this tunnel and down 1 ladder is another tunnel where you go to reach the grub face-to-face to kill it safely. There's a whip around the ladders too (sort of a cylindrical area).

    Alternatively you can shoot the grub from safety with arrows until it dies, OR suicide run from the 1st bonfire to the grub and grab it before you get killed. Much faster!

    Isnt power within under the big squid?
  • Deleted user 22 July 2013 09:59:51
    Yeah, I seem to recall it's the middle one, so either up one or down one ladder depending on which way you approach the area.

    It's definitely down from the big fat roaring guy, not sure if down 1 or 2 ladders though without having it in front of me, sorry but I *think* it's only 1.

    Don't pass the club wielding roaring guy. Before you enter the cave, a few steps up that ramp is a ladder. You have to climb it and then you'll make your way into the giant rock cavern and slide down a ladder behind that monster. There you can kill it from behind.

    @Architect_z @Dr_Mech

    Well, I have a +5 chaos shotel now too after discovering a way that I could get another red slab. Blue orb wouldn't find anyone for PvP last night when I had a quick gander so might put my red soapstone down later so I can test it.

    Tried it out PvE though and it's awesome so I think it will be really handy.

    So this weekend I navigated my way through the Duke's Archives, killed Seath the Scaleless - didn't get the moonlight sword - and have lowered the water level in New Londo Ruins.

    Crystal Caves is another example of Dark Souls' shockingly bad level design, I'm afraid. Invisible walkways? GTFO.

    Those skeletor-like mother-fuckers at New Londo are killing me all too easily, though. Level 75 and still using the +5 Black Knight Sword. Still can't work out how to trade in my boss souls and haven't been rewarded by the blacksmiths yet for cashing in my embers.

    Also struggling to kill those three bastards I had to use the Black Orb to fight in the Anor Londo great hall.

    Finally, I also can't get past those shitboxes in the fiery depths - the ones with the big right-angled blades.

    He doesn't seem to want to take my boss souls. Also, not using the Zweihander, still on Black Knight's Sword.

    The Capra demons? You've killed one already! How can you not have used an ember yet?
  • Deleted user 22 July 2013 11:23:41
    No I've killed the big fuckers outside, the non-respawning ones with the giant hammers whose legs you just roll through. It's the ones that line the path as you go down into the temple I haven't yet got past. Could go farming and buy lots of poison arrow and pick them off from a distance I suppose but long-term that's not a viable strategy.

    I think my overall level is high enough to complete the game, I just worry that I've spread my upgrades out too thinly. No one single skill-set is particularly high level. I think I have endurance at 30 but then everything else ranges from 12 to 28.

    Yeah, that are exists to no other purpose other than to frustrate. Wait until you try to get the treasures that are dotted around that require navigating curving invisible pathways...

    I can take the odd one or two of them, but where I died yesterday there were about 5/6 of them in a row.
  • Deleted user 22 July 2013 11:37:49
    I'm not, it's just where they are.

    I start at the Demon Ruins bonfire, run past the Eingyis, down the hill and to the right past all the lava and there's one by himself, but then the path continues and there are another 5 blocking my way.

    If you can't take two on at a time, you could poison arrow one of them and then wade in when it's almost dead

    Also, re boss souls - you need a specifically upgraded weapon in addition to the boss soul.

    So take Quelaags soul. You'll need that and an upgraded scimitar (to +10) in order for the Furysword to be available to be made

    Different unique weapons require different upgraded weapons

    Throw s*** at them. That normally grabs their attention.
  • Deleted user 22 July 2013 12:17:02
    Capras: Arrows to the head. That gets them. They just stand there and take it. I kill one in two shots with my upgraded bow and moonlight arrows.

    Also, Darkwraiths in the lower level new londo ruins I always find backstabbing being the way to go. Watch out as one of their attacks has about 4 swings.

    I seem to remember you can drop down to where the bonfire would be, bypassing all of them. Is that right?
  • Deleted user 22 July 2013 12:35:46
    @Widge Yeah, easier if you take out maybe the first three (one up top and first two lower down), but you don't really have to. You can run and roll off and hey presto.

    Question: The Avelyn has no stat scaling. I don't have any titanite slabs and few chunks. I have plenty of white slabs and chunks, aswell as red chunks and slabs.

    If I was to modify the avelyn to a fire+10, could that be a stupid idea? The total damage output is higher than any other modification (by default, due to the non stat scaling).

    Does it depend more on the ammo?

    I'm a faith build if this helps.
