    There's a great use for Poison Mist which I *think* I stumbled across by myself, and is quite a popular tactic in online guides. I don't want to paint too specific a picture, though.

    @crashVoodoo Every Dark Souls veteran knows what bit you have to endure next. I hope you have high stamina or a bow. That's all I'll say.

    Well, once you're back out of the painting.

    Just used my black eye orb to invade lautrec.

    Thats a bit tough. Is there anyway to lure them 1 by 1? Cant handle all 3 at once!

    Just had my first shot at the FK, completely unassisted, and got it down to around 50% HP with no trouble, thereupon misreading whatever signs were there and getting finished off pretty quickly :(

    I can see roughly what the deal is: as usual, stay close and, when possible, behind, but I need to learn to read that grab attack better.

    Will try again, perhaps with NPC assistance to help with mobbing, in a bit.

    @robc84 Took me a few goes:-

    "Use the stairs to funnel them," I was advised, but in the end I just poison-arrowed L from the far end of the room (i.e. don't move at all once it's loaded). It took two full poison sessions, around three or four arrows per dose to get it going.

    @convercide I'm assuming you mean as I continue in AL? I've seen the stompy giants with big Shields after the 2nd gargoyle which is already down. I've already tackled these to get all the chests earlier and and a chuffing monster chest that dropped a pretty nifty crystal halberd which does awesome damage.

    I was thinking poison arrow actually. Bit cheap but gets the job done I guess!

    Heading for painted world now though!

    @crashVoodoo There's a potentially far more frustrating moment coming up :D

    @robc84 Good luck. There's some good bits off stuff to be had, plus it looks far nicer than Skyrim, I reckon :)

    @crashVoodoo Not quite. You're nearly there though. Figure out how to get in there and that's where the fun starts.

    @robc84 good luck rob it's a fun area. Watch out for the bloaty heads, they explode with toxic juice.   Alsomind the crows,  they jump and peck for massive damage.

    Tried to keep it spoiler free :-)

    Beat the twin gargoyles near the church bell just now, the Halbird truly is an awesome weapon. I did enlist some help from that sun-obessed npc, he was a nice distraction so I could whack them both with my lightning-charged rod. Their fire was pretty annoying, it caused me at least 6-7 deaths before I beat the fight.

    As far back as I can remember I always wanted to be a ninja.

    @crashVoodoo Cheers for the tips. Rolled away from bloaty head guys (that look suspiciously like the clickers on tlou). Nearly got caught out by the crows peck. Two assaulted me on top of a tower. One is dead and the other seems to have disappeared. Slightly worrying.

    Whats that then? Surely he is past the archers now?

    Edit: just realised he meant the chests right at the start.

    OK, with a certain lady's help this time, got FK to within two small notches of death.

    Figured it out: using the heavy, thrusting attack of my BSS +15 does not do the trick as it quite often misses this particular target, even though locked on.

    The light, slashing attack seems the way to go, and should hopefully preserve a bit more stamina.

    Still having trouble staying close enough to avoid the more powerful attacks, though :(

    @EMarkM

    Tanking them always works well on the first playthrough. Two hand your sword, stick the Grass Crest shield on your back. Wear your strongest magic protection and physical protection armour with plenty of poise. Go to town and heal when the moment presents itself. You should be aiming to take down each King before the next one appears.

    @robc84

    You poison each of his minions then take him on 1v1. Seems too cheap to kill him via poison arrows as well ;)

    Ha ha. I'm obviously not fit for duty after our curry/beer/eighties metal night.

    Just got killed by a darkwraith on my way to FK. I normally one-shot those phuqqas.

    I'll give it a rest and attend to my slow-cooking :)

    Weird thing happened to me earlier. I was summoned to assist in Undead Parish and did the customary bow, to which the summoner replied to by saying "hello"

    I was really taken aback, has anyone had another player speak to them before? Not sure if relevant but was on PS3

    @robc84 - For Laurec and his goons The easiest way I've found it to run right up to them. You don't have to kill all 3 of them, just kill Lautrec and you win. Even if all 3 notice you, just let golden boy run at you. I (believe) hes faster than the other 2 anyway, funnel them up the staircase, 2 hand your weapon, and keep doing jumping attacks. Golden boy tends to roll alot aswell, you can normally get a cheeky backstab in before he gets upright again.

    You'll do it, its not too tough this fight, just takes a few goes maybe.
