    Anyone want to help with an SL42 character to kill Queelag? I don't really *need* it as such, but it would be nice to have some company.

    On PC, that is.
    I have a character at about level 35 who could perhaps help!

    No holds barred and by any means necessary - so definitely lightning and pyro! I'm on PC though...

    Too late! I got her pretty easily with Maneater Mildred or whoever she is. She managed to draw aggro for almost the whole damn fight!

    Thanks for the offer though!

    She's just called 'Wild Mildred' in the German version. Whatever, she's a good man to have on the team :)

    Is anyone here doing an SL1 run, or got a character spare at that level? I could do with some four kings assistance...
    Way I did an SL1 run of the Four Kings is going all out Pyromancy, you should by now have the glove either maxed out or at least +10 (there is fuck all else to spend you souls on).

    However you can't do the fight the traditional style of wearing Havels and just tanking the hits, you don't have the HP for that, what you've got to do is basically learn to dodge all of their attacks.

    I wouldn't suggest Power Within either, again health is far too low for such a risky move (you can soak up a grand total of 1 hit), instead go in with Great Combustion and Combustion, with a maxed out Pyro glove it takes 4 Great Combustions to burn down a king and you'll do it pretty fast.

    For some inspiration, here is a man beating four kings naked while using only fist weapons at soul level 1.

    Yeah there are some people that have just mastered Dark Souls, considering he takes on ALL the bosses, including the DLC ones in that same style.

    Artorias with Fist weapons that aren't the claw (far and away the best fist weapon, hits faster than all the others, has slightly longer reach AND causes bleed, oh it also hits harder than the Dragonbone fist) is a massive ballache and I know this from experience, beating him with the Dragonbone fist took like 20 minutes even with buffs.

    I find watching pvp to be utterly boring, but those pve videos are great.

    I have been afraid to continue DS for almost half a year, but now when I got over that I am again enjoying it so much. It really takes the place next to Deus Ex and Fallout in my book of legendary great games.

    I still suck in PVP though. I suppose I have been able to kill one invader. Most of the time invaders just slaughter me and burn my precious souls. Any tips for magic pvp? Also Ornstein and Smough were too much for me so had to go back to grinding my levels...

    See, doesn't it feel good to beat them in the end? Look back at all the frustrating as fuck moments and then look at your success with it. Balances out, no?

    That's why its an excellent (and rare of its type nowadays) game. You've got to earn the exhilaration, but its so much sweeter when you get it.

    Shit, dark soul's tutorial is harder than most full games nowadays

    I'm not sure it balances out tbh, it's an amazing game but it really gets on top of me at times. Still, I'm still playing and looking forward to getting a go on it again :-)

    @Armoured_Bear - ok, maybe not balance out for you, but I'm sure you can see the positives as well as the frustration. Get on with it man :)

    I need more dark souls now. Can't leave it any longer. No other game scratches that itch. When I say itch, I mean no other game punches you in the face and laughs at you over and over again.

    Time to dust off Knuckle the toxic naked barbarian and finally kill sif the shit.

    @Buztafen I know. I love him really. Only it's not reciprocated. I go to give him a cuddle and he lops my arms off.

    I'm having quite a hard time trying to complete the game with my current pure magic build, my melee weapons are whack.

    A few questions: Whats the best catalyst to use if i'm going to be around 50 INT? Or what would you recommend and why?

    Also, I got a balder side sword pretty early on, if i'm going for a pure magic, should I go magic reinforcement, or enchanted? I'll be levelling dex aswell abit aswell.

    Yeah, it's annoying. You can get some of those sounding stones, or shoot arrows into the pathways if you have them. After a few tries you'll know the path and be able to just run across.

    Depends, you willing to sacrifice number of spells for power or you want to have more casts?

    If you just want raw magic damage then you stick with Tin Crystalisation Catalyst, it halves your number of casts though (and rounds down so for example Purserers goes from 3 casts to 1.

    If you want to keep a normal number of casts then you use Logan's catalyst. It has the best scaling of any catalyst at 45 INT or higher that doesn't have a downside.

    Are you using the Standard Sorcerer Overpowered Items list? Crown of Dusk, Bellowing Dragonscrest ring, Tin Crystalisation Catalyst + Power Within results in being able to one shot quite a few bosses with Dark Bead or strip off like a quarter with Homing Crystal Soul Mass.

    Woo, got past the archers on my first go! And I didn't even cheat with poison arrows!

    Going up the bridge wasn't hard - just had to keep running. Once you get past a certain point, the archer on the left becomes irrelevant.

    The hard bit was at the top, getting close enough to the guy on the right that he unequips the greatbow and goes hand to hand. Once he did that, it was all over.

    Such a silly part of the game.

    Oh, and I am one-handing a Black Knight Greataxe +4 now. It's a great little weapon. One strong attack kills pretty much anything in AL.
