    Heh. I wondered about one of those forward dashes sending Gapey to its own demise. Never seems to happen though. Bloody clever coders.

    Does kicking do any damage? I was wondering about a kicking-only run, or just the specific challenge of kicking any dragon to death.

    ....probably not Kalameet.
    It doesn't usually but there are two ways to get it to deal damage.
    1) The orange charred ring gives your kick like 60 fire damage, you can see this on Solaire if you fight him before he goes all mental biscuits on you in lost izalith.

    2) The leggings of Thorns also gives you kick a small amout of damage.

    And yes there are people that have kicked every boss in the game to death using those items...

    Despite playing for a couple of years, I only found out a couple of months ago that "Need Humanity" messages were messages begging for a +1. I kept thinking, "Why do I need humanity for this bit?"
    Hah, I never realised that :-)

    You are a factory of sadness.

    I always assumed the "need humanity" were people asking for summons, help with bosses etc.
    No idea why but I always just thought that, and assumed when people +1'd them they were saying, ok, I'm here!

    Demon's souls had a similar thing, which was something like 'I'm in trouble, please recommend this message!'

    I thought it was so the messagee gets some health back when the message was rated?

    So lost in Blight Town.

    Found a whip and an extra wanderer 's set.

    Somewhere after killing some flaming beetles fell to my death. Finding my corpse is going to be challenging.

    Quadfather is definitely quite peculiar for saying he likes it.

    Not at first!

    I was as lost as you for a while but when I worked it all out, I found that I enjoyed getting through it properly without dying.

    In fact its probably not the enjoyment so much as being able to handle it now.

    Did you go in via the front door?

    Heh! Pretty much same here. Got pretty handy this morning at dispatching the initial fattypuffs and thinnifers, plus it seems the venomous sniper is gone for good once you've got him.

    Romped around grabbing a few "souls of a..." and the shadow armour that some friendly messages led me to, but almost immediately fell to my death while watching some weird glowing rat or dog thing way below me.

    Saw a message of "imminent wings". Not sure what that meant, but I could sure have done with some.

    Oh, and "swap weapon" DOES un-nock an arrow, but you have to not be shooting First Person before you press it.

    Progress, fellow sufferers, slow progress ;)

    This reminds me there is a glitch in blightown which gets me every time, there's a tree that connects two sections and I always fall and die. I now have to do a jump, which is perilous!

    You are a factory of sadness.

    Its easier if you run at that bit.

    But of course, running on a thin log brings new problems :)

    Nope.

    Keep using Depths as my base for now. No idea how close I was to a bonfire. I did get pretty far down before I...well...fell the rest of the way down anyway!

    Currently at New Londo Ruins blacksmith, trying to decide if changing either of my weapons from +7 (sword) and +5 (bow) to magic is a good idea.

    Seems it kills the Dex scaling on both. Hmmm...

    What are you thinking of upgrading it/them to?

    The first bonfire is on a solid brick walkway, so if you start to see some stone pillars, you're going the right way.

    It's not that far after picking up the shadow armour thinking about it. You'll have to piss about with some ladders as I can't remember how far up/down it is

    @quadfather Missed the word "magic" before I edited my post.

    I've got the right kind of titanite to make either, or both, magic instead of what they are now.

    Don't think I'll bother. It looks like this changes the scaling to, I'm assuming, Int, which I'm not developing at this stage. Was just wondering if reducing phy damage and increasing mag damage was a good idea, but think I'll pass and get back to Blight Town to find that bonfire.

    Yeah, you'd need a fair bit of int to make that work. What weapon is it by the way? I'd get it to at least 10 first (whatever it is :) )

    Get thee to the bonfire!

    Might have a blast myself I think. Bound to find a few bss' lying about

    @quadfather Hilariously, my +7 weapon IS a BSS.

    I know, you still hate me, right?

    I have. I was trying to find my way out but ended ploughing further and further following shiny things.

    Will have another blunder around this evening. At least pretty much all the snipers should be down and try and find the bonfire at the bottom.

    Ring of Evil to top up your health and the wolf ring to get you poise while wearing an upgraded Thief set and spider shield keeps me going pretty well.

    Edit :
    I've reserved my collection of BSS to creating a variety of enchanted swords. I think the iacho is something I'd like to play with.

    @DodgyPast - Yeah, when you get on top of it, it's no so bad

    Heh bonfire reached, another sniper down, a few goodies found. This evening I may be able to progress a little further; can still see a couple of shinies in the distance ::slurp::

    Somehow found my way down to the bottom bonfire. Going to take a break then wander around there. Try to figure that area out.

    Have you got the rusted iron ring? Either of you?

    Down by the 2nd bonfire is fun. Especially if you're in human form

    And don't forget to check *thoroughly* down there for secret areas!

    Fucking fuckity fuck. Ive been holding onto god knows how many souls for ages with no problems and I get to the painted world and get lost.

    Low on estus and can't remember where key is to open the main front door. Remembering NOT to go down the well, as we know what's down there.

    Finally make the decision to go back to the bonfire and spend the souls. Knowing that theres 3 harpies on the way.

    Killed 2 no problem

    ...


    ....

    Argh :)

    I don't, but stumbled my way back to firelink shrine through Londo. Going to have another look at the armour situation. Also got the shadow and crimson armour.

    I'll go back to the asylum and grab the rusted iron ring now. Quite liking the katanas. After I've got the ring I'll grab a bunch more moss and mess around more.

    I've heard of the rusted ring, heard that it was in the asylum, don't know what it does, and didn't know you could get back there.

    Hmmm...
