    I think 40 is one of the break points. If I want poise for whatever reason, I just put the wolf ring on and be done with it

    In fact, I don't think I ever use medium or heavy armour because I'm such a nimble whore. I just have the odd bit with hollow soldier stuff + gargoyle helm I think

    Made it to the iron gollum and found the campfire. Good day all round. Lightening spear is rather good

    Anyone still play this on the PC? I just got myself a new laptop so took the opportunity to boot this up again. Looks great in 1080p.

    Thats good progress. Well done. You'll be amazed at the next area, I guarantee it :)

    But dont be in too much of a rush - there are lots of goodies in sens. Now you can safely explore as you have got to the bonfire

    Level 1 mate, since my old characters haven't come across with me. I thought maybe they'd be saved to GfWL so when I moved computers they'd come over but apparently not. I only had the option of new game. :(

    Yay found a crystal armour set that actually looks quite good with the crimson skirt and it's brought my weight right under the 25% ceiling so I'm nimble again.

    Crystal armour

    I've also discovered that if you press a to read a message and then hit the back button it brings up rating options. I'm leaving ratings like a boss now.  You don't need the silly soapstone for it

    Had another little go at Crystal Cave earlier this evening.

    I can get as far as the golem under the butterflies every time with no trouble, but I've yet to get further.

    A few times he's battered me: is he harder than the others?

    The one time I beat him, I must have misjudged where the path should be, and wheeeeeeeee...splat :(

    The two gold golrms don't respawn, I usually have most success killing them by falling off and them doing the civil thing and jumping off after me :-)

    You are a factory of sadness.

    Yeah I've downed them bad boys and now I'm just looking where to go next. The flutterbyes haven't bothered me so I'm not going to bother them

    @Mr_Sleep Hmmm, not gold, I think, white.

    He just looks bigger than the others, seems to hit harder and take more hits too.

    Probably just me, eh? :)

    Determined I'm having this shiny but I'll be annoyed if it's just souls now

    If anyone is connected to the same game as me they'll see a row of orange messages streaking off into nothingness :-)

    Got it.  It's a blue titanite slab.

    So seath is down.  Didn't enjoy them caves at all.   I was lost after this to be honest and I traipsed around like an idiot wondering where to go.  Turns out there is an area just after firesage  that I never explored including some kind of Dino insect thing to kill so he went next.  Got me a new ring allowing me to walk on lava.

    Which then led to jurassic sap hole aka lost izalith.  Fun area. There has to be a secret bonfire somewhere cos it's a long fucking way when you die. Anyways, emptied the area and then met the boss. I won't spoil it for Mark and Rob, save to say. Bag of shit.

    Anyways, that's down and I have all my Lord souls now.

    Bedtime, warrior balluschinian must rest for the night

    Lost Izalith map spoilers: There's a bonfire behind an illusory door in one of the towers in the large open area with the lava. I think it's the tower furthest to the right when you firstenter that area. I didn't really enjoy Lost Izalith...

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

    Ah, maybe he WAS gold: he's not there this morning after I finally beat him last night before falling.

    So, maybe there's one more, eh?

    @damagedinc the way I finally did it was to run straight up fast and then left to take him out first. As he his back down the other side a bit you are shielded by a tower you just ran past.

    You can dispatch him and then run over to the other.  Roll when he fires arrows.

    Alternatively, somebody else mentioned an invisibility spell/ring could help.

    Yay! Nudeybollox is down. I mean DOWN (first go!).

    Where to next? Still got to find "The Catacombs" wherever they are - no spoilers please! - and I guess I'll be returning to Demon Bastard Ruins at some point.

    Hmmm...still fancy trying for more Slabs, though. Might do that for a bit...

    @damagedinc

    I did it by running straight to the cover in the middle. Then ran to the guy on the right which gives you cover from the left one. Then its up to you whether you take out the one on the left or just leave him.

    Good luck!

    @Futaba knew there would be a bonfire somewhere.  Ah well,  it's done now :-)
