    Ok! Ok! Wanna coop?

    Hang on a minute. Ive just loaded my char after doing quelaag last night and I'm not only in chaos covenant (which I remember doing) but its gone straight to +2 in the covenant? Surely that's not right considering ive given her zero humanity?

    Weird, did you get the rank 2 spell from it too (Chaos Firestorm)?

    No but I did get great chaos fireball.I'll check if the shortcut is open but that's surely a glitch

    @Goodfella - sure. Let me know and I'll pop back online again. I'm just farming at the mo so will stay offline. My char is 37 and may go up a bit. That about the right range for you? Ive just done shitetown but not sens.

    Been having a play around on mugenmonkey to see where I want the character to be for SL120 GLing:

    Something like this

    So what we reckon for me next while I get myself ready for capra. Thinking of going past the lightning guy by the parish blacksmith....

    Good idea or bad idea?

    Had a brief session this morning. Well...over an hour it turns out...

    Decided to put Sen's to one side and mop up some unfinished business: Stray Demon.

    I STILL haven't killed him. Must have had dozens of goes :(

    I'm aware of the strategy: stay close and behind him, back off from his magic guff, leg it when he jumps and stay to his left when trying to get around him.

    I am SO shit at bosses... :D

    @robc84 Take him on! It might take you a few goes, but you can normally spam him from behind a pillar most of the time.

    Then, yes: see what's beyond :)

    @EMarkM

    Those type of bosses are a touch hit or miss. Sometimes they get locked in the flying attack which is really easy to kill, other times they spam aoe which is a lot harder.

    A tip I use is to roll towards him as soon as you drop down rather than retreating (which I used to do to heal from the fall dmg). It seems to give you a bit more of a chance to not getting 1 shot by his hammer attack I find.

    @Ironlungs76 Cheers :) I have been trying that. I've tried pretty much everything: buffing my sword, two-handed instead of sword & shield, heal on landing, don't heal on landing.

    What I tend to find, and not only in this game, is that I sometimes get stuck in a corner due to not thinking ahead. Also, I get one strategy or pattern in mind and don't deviate when it sometimes becomes necessary.

    I'm old and rubbish!

    Yeah, the stats are fine, just need to tinker with the armour choices as I lvl up so I can fast roll eventually :)

    He's pretty weak to bleed damage. A good uchi or iaito makes light work of him if you're dex based. I think a lot of his attacks are magic and physical if memory serves me.

    Bleed really stacks up on him nicely though.

    Not even close to the twattiness of Firesage, mind. His magic spamming has had me pulling my arms off with rage at times.

    Currently using a BSS+9 (yes, DEXing), but will take a look to see if I have any better bleeders.

    I've had him down to something like 5 more slashes to finish him...

    Decent couple of hours progress this afternoon. SL 40 and about to take on O&S with a few tidy items, including:

    +5 Furysword (the prism stone and dung pie worked at Snuggly btw on 360)
    +10 Falcion for offhand
    +2 Chaos Shotel
    +10 Pharis Bow
    +13 pyro glove

    Not a bad haul, got most of my items now it's boss killin' time :)

    Currently rocking a Divine BSS and +15 BSS on my faith character. Might switch it out for something else just for a change.

    Maybe a mail breaker or something. Or a dagger.
