    I insist on reading this thread far too often despite the save game I have being in a country I no longer live in.

    I've got it on my laptop but for some reason it doesn't quite click for me not playing it on a pad. Also the performance isn't great, perhaps I should restart.

    I think it took me 3/4 goes to take down the Capra demon. Like people have said, once you can get past the dogs its a lot easier, up around the stairs, loopedy loop.

    Man I miss this game!

    Capra: Pretty much been covered by others, but basically try not to use heavy weapons, you might be fine with normal greatswords (Claymore etc). I'd recommend (if possible) using a spear, because you can attack from behind your shield, and spears are good for attack in narrow spaces. Run to the stairs, kill dogs. The Capras moveset is pretty easy to predict, so if he charges an attack stay back and keep your shield up, don't get greedy with your attacks, and you should be fine. ^_^

    All the talk about DS2 has got me stoked, so I'm going to get a copy of this on Friday. Never played the dlc properly either
    I'll be starting from scratch as my original play throughs were on my 360, which is at my old house.
    I'm kind of trembling at the thought of all those boss encounters.

    Good luck :) though you've already completed vanilla dark souls havent you? I only mention it as I'm trawling through the entire dark souls thread looking for funny quotes at the moment and you're in there, swearing away around page 190 :)

    Dlc isnt that bad when you get used to it

    It was a brutal learning curve. I swear it took me a week and 30 hours playtime to get to the first bell.

    Hehehe, some more early Dark Souls thread quotes -

    Oh-Bollox - Fuck New Londo. Christ, what a fucking cunt of an area.

    Munki83 - valley of drakes = run away

    Oh-bollox - WTF, who was snoring in Firelink Shrine? :-s

    Deleted user - You have to stay near the summon sign or it disappears.

    Daeltaja - Fuuuuuck, just lost 8k souls and 5 humanity by falling off a ledge =/

    Edit: FUCCCCK.

    Oh-Bollox - 2400 souls for a 'useful tip'? Fuck off.

    Deleted user - WTF is wrong with my guy's face? He looks like a zombie?! I don't see any obvious status effect symbols.

    (In reply to the above) INSOMANiAC - You're just an ugly cunt.

    Oh-bollox - Fuck butchers.

    Deleted user - I cant believe how hard the skeletons are, they just wont die.

    Oh-bollox - I'm up to my balls in the Depths and I'm out of Estus! I'm out of Estus! Fuck giant giant rats!

    bbcDJC - I AM FINALLY FREE OF BLIGHT TOWN. YAY.

    Deleted user - I'm really not good under stress.

    Massive demon coming my way.

    AAGGGHHHHHHH WHAT DO I DO WHAT DO I DO - jump off the castle.

    The_dudefather - I had a dream last night where I was being invaded by another player over and over again and I couldn't escape, the quit to menu option was greyed out and for whatever reason I couldn't stop playing

    UncleLou - Number of times died because I didn't completely close down the menu and realized too late why I can't attack: 4, and rising.

    Oh-bollox - quadfather wrote:
    Chaps, how hard is the black knight in the undead burg? I'm only about level 7/8 or so, equipping the estoc with a +100 dam reduction shield. And he's right in front of me. Do-able?

    I did him at level 12-13, and found it wasn't that bad. Just be careful, don't get intimidated (he gave me the fucking terrors when he chased me). Lure him somewhere spacious and stab him up.

    (hahaha) quadfather - Spooned massively earlier by trying to do a running jump to a window. Accidently flicked the left stick too much in a direction whilst running, and it became a massive cluster fuck of me over compensating over and over again until the jump, at which point I simply flung myself into a chasm

    lol.

    Just like fucking demon's souls. Here we go again

    Oh-Bollox - I don't know what it is, but the big humanoid enemies panic me something awful. Dragons, gargoyles, giant rats, I'm not bothered. Put me up against a ten-foot knight and I start gibbering and shitting bricks. If I didn't have to hold the pad I would actually flap my hands.

    Found out that 4 kings is a lot tougher on ng+ last night having defeated them on first attempt on my first play through :(

    Also new londo ruins is now crawling with extra phantom darkwraiths making it a lot tougher to get through. Anyone know why they have shown up?

    @Trafford I think it took me between 45 and 50 hours to do the second bell - does that make me utterly shithouse?

    I was farming them the other night, I think there's always about 10-11 down there in total. Sometimes you end up aggroing one at a time, other times 3 of them jump you at once if you walk in the wrong spot. There's a quick way you can get to the boss while avoiding them though:

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

    @robc84 Don't know, but he wouldn't speak to me at Int 12.

    However, maybe circumstances will change, further down the line...? ;)

    Maybe I don't want to talk to him anyway. The arrogant git.

    He may know magic, but I could teach him a thing or two about wielding an uchigatana :)

    If you're talking about Logan, hes a ripoff merchant. He sells decent magic, but hes abit of a tosspot.

    Yeah but these ones are the same red and black colour as an invader and only appeared after a couple of attempts at 4 kings. They have more health than the normal darkwraiths.

    Best way to avoid?

    Sounds like you've been 'cursed' by a gravelord player, you need to find his sign and beat him to get rid of the super-enemies.
