    Which bow... Once I stumble upon the undead merchant again I'll grab that if it's enough to start with.

    Probably dex then str but I'm not far enough in to feel committed:

    Currently :
    Vitality 11
    Atunement 11
    Endurance 14
    Strength 13
    Dexterity 17
    Resistance 12
    Intelligence 11
    Faith 14

    The standard bow he sells is fine for now and a shed load of arrows just to give you a ranged option from the off.

    Stats are looking fairly dexy and you've upped your faith by the look of it. Dex/faith bud is perfectly viable.

    Rules of thumbs - can take vit as high as you like, don't go over 40 for end but at least aim for that, same with dex and then you've got your 3rd 'playstyle' stat with a backup utility stat, it looking like faith in your case

    Think I'm a fair way off being able to farm Sens when I'm still struggling with Taurus and the guy at the bottom of the tower.

    Slowly collecting some titanate shards so itching to upgrade something.

    Edit:
    Tomorrow I'll dig out the bow. Eaked enough souls out to pop vitality to 12. Buggered if I can remember how to find the undead merchant again.

    I got past the narrow ledge and outside where the fucking giants killed me as I tried to figure out where to go.

    It's ok, I kicked his arse, if you just stay really close to him he's not too bad. I used Power Within as well

    Thanks. Gave me a chance to practice kicking and looks like there's another part of Undead Burg to explore.

    Acquired the repair box and was horrified to see how much damage my gear has taken. I have a feeling getting Astaro's sword and shield so early was a little cheap. Though leveling my faith to 14 so early might be punishment enough.

    Just wish the guy at the bottom of the tower wasn't such a long distance from the bonfire.

    Heal's pretty useful. Lets me keep the ten Estrus flasks from the fire shrine.

    Edit:
    Just done the jump... Crossbow, already picked one up though :-(

    Is my next mission either Taurus or the beastie at the bottom of the tower. Seem like the only 2 places I haven't been.

    It sort of levels off after you beat the place after Sens, though. Imo, of course, but the really annoying places for me were in the early- to mid-game.

    Say hi to the archers for me. You'll know who I mean soon enough.

    Congratulations!

    Now there's good news and bad news.

    The bad news is that ironlungs is right. You're going to experience some mental stuff.

    However, the good news is that you'll be able to do it. You were crying at send and now its a distant memory. So you're getting better all the time

    And you'll need to :)

    But just enjoy the next area for a bit first

    I bet they are archers who will knock you off some ledge or something to your depth.

    /Trembles

    I take it I'm about halfway through the game?
    It's bloody big...

    Now that I have 5 Magic slots and my Pyromancy fully upgraded, should I put my souls into Dex to 40 so I can disk out fiery death faster and benefit some weapons?

    Bloody hell, if you made such a meal of Sen's (and it sounds like you didn't really explore the place, just went straight through) then Anor Londo is going to flatten you.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Halfway is a reasonable assumption but it does ramp up from here on in. Though you'll acquire some interesting stuff and unlock useful abilities so don't worry about it.

    When you say fully upgraded pyromancy, do you mean your glove is on +15? Because that's not fully upgraded.

    I believe (but someone will have to clarify this) that dex only increases the speed or magic and miracle casting, not pyro, but again, someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

    What weapon(s) are you currently using and what are your stats looking like?

    Also, what have you been doing with the firekeepers souls?

    @LeoliansBro - not sure you know. It took me over 12 attempts to kill the gargoyles, at least ten runs through blighttown, yet 20 minutes to do sens. Whereas for other people its completely different.

    Though I suppose if we're talking archers and the boss...

    Well :)

    I did some exploring, I got Ricard's Rapier, quite a few rings, a Demonite Shard, can't remember what else just now. I'd like to go back and explore a bit more now.
    I did struggle but I didn't really struggle too much in Blightown where others did so who knows?

    Yes, but it's one of the easiest parts of the game and the one where skills learned in other games (Tomb Raider etc) are most translatable. If you're a half competent gamer it should offer little challenge, and is certainly easier than any combat-oriented section.

    People don't like Blighttown because it's dark, maze-like and full of things that kill you by degrees or slow you down. Sen's Fortress could be a training level on Uncharted.

    Speaking of which, did you ever go back to explore Blighttown and find what we were talking about? There's something similarly secret around Firelink shrine if you go climbing on the ruins.
