    Some n00bs across the office are talking about Dark Souls, how they've had issues with Sens Fortress, I should give them some advice, but I don't want to. These guys suck.

    I am sure your pale skin scares them enough, basement dweller! :D

    Playing on NG+ and have just defeated Smough & Shitstain after about at least 50 tries! That boss can fuck right off! I'm dreading it on NG+6!

    Dark Souls 2 is going to be a purely PC affair for me, so I'm having a hard time with this extra months wait.

    In order to cope, I'm NG+'ing it through DS1 with a Strength/Faith character, which is something I haven't tried before. Plan is to cap it off at SL125 and try some PvP.

    I went with St50 to try 1-handing some of the ultra-greatswords which is another thing I've never tried.

    Favourite St weapons so far are the Man-Serpent Greatsword and the Demon Great Machete. The MSGS with Darkmoon blade is just a beast in PvP - the 2-handed R2 attack is a lot of fun.

    90 minutes to a +5 Uchi :-)

    Now to go back and get Havel's ring.

    This time no need for the Dragon Sword at all, hollow shield dropped but I'd quite like a BS one before I invest in upgrading though the hollow does have the fire resistance.

    Edit:
    Havel done... Now to get to the depths, unlock the pyromancy, upgrade it a fair amount then go human. Also have a look for the crimson set and wolf poise ring.

    Am not long into this but just realised a bought the hardcover guide for this wen it came out. A checked eBay and it seems to go for. Fair price but am wondering if anyone who has the guide thinks its worth keepin for my (eventual) play through. The only reason I ask as its still sealed and am thinking bout selling it and just jump straight into dark souls 2

    @pogomeister

    From what I've seen DS and DS 2 seem to be pretty equivalent in quality and if either click you'll want to play the other.

    So I'd only sell to buy a cheaper copy.

    For example as soon as I finished Dark Souls I immediately went to Demon's Souls.

    As to the guide... Think it depends on your phone / tablet. Once I'd done a level I used the wiki and online maps to clear them up.

    I realise you've all probably moved on by now, but if anyone's still reading, would you mind sharing a tip on where I should go next.

    Just killed Quelaag, and I'm pretty sure I've rinsed Blighttown, so the options are:

    New Londo Ruins
    Catacombs
    Demon's something or another
    The castle that opens up once you've rung the two bells

    The castle that opens up once you've rung the two bells.

    Edit: another option would be to do The Depths first. From where you are now, I'd recommend one of those two.

    @FatsoJetson; Castle, aka Sen's Fortress.

    Pay attention to the traps is my advice. The axe traps at the very top, on the narrowest pathway of all by the mage-serpent, are 2 x 2-pairs. There's a narrow gap between axe 2 and 3, just big enough to stand in. Many try to run through them all - it's possible, but most of the time you'll fall. This is your attention-check. The only trap-set you run through completely are after the darts trap.

    edit; Or nip down to The Depths. There's an ember down there that will make your life somewhat simpler later.

    @PenguinJim I've done the depths, I think. That's the bit after the Capra Demon, right - with the giant dragon boss?

    Also if you tilt the camera so you're almost looking down on yourself you'll get a much better perspective.

    My friend is playing on PC and was telling me an invader came into his world and used a weapon which gave him the egg infection. He's only just after clearing the Gargoyles and not near Blighttown yet so he can't speak to Enigyi for an Egg Vermifuge. I've advised the rare drop from the Tree Lizards for them, even if they are rare, as he hasn't even so much as reached the Depths. It's affecting his levelling up too as you would expect. Just want to confirm that is definately a hack right? I'm 99% certain there's no legit weapon in the game that can inflict that status.

    Looking around he's going to have to live with it until getting to Blighttown.

    I've set dsfix to backup my saves because this worries me.

    Managed to be able to farm the forest covenant guys at level 26... Up to +13 pyromancy and will take it to +15 so can defend myself from non-hackers so I can summon with a little more confidence. Going for the maggot helmet.

    @Tuffty Sounds like a hack. Even the egg bite attack doesn't infect others. What a bastard.

    Yep thought so. It's ok, I told him that he may want to go try getting an Egg Vermifuge off the tree lizards in Darkroot Basin and sure enough he got one! All's well now. Don't think he plans to go human anytime soon.

    Elite and stone armor sets, Balder Side Sword and Shield... Black Bow and downed the titanite demon by the forest and the butterfly all at level 26 :-)

    Going to farm the forest for a bit and +5 / +3 some weapons and armor before gapy then Blighttown.

    2nd playthrough does feel a lot more focused.

    Aiming for the maggot helmet before hitting the catacombs and tomb of giants.

    @Tuffty Yup. Good advice there. I never play online on the PC version because of the modders. It totally unbalances the online experience, especially those who use the infinite health hack. I hope the delay of DS2 on the PC is to nail the online part to identify outrageous mods like that.

    Quick question....

    Does it matter if you summon Solaire for a boss fight and he dies.

    Sadly he didn't survive the fight with gapy.

    Actually a very messy fight... Lost my Uchi to an attack but finished him after swapping out to a bow.

    @DodgyPast yeah, it doesn't matter if he dies in a boss fight, he should still be there for the next one.

    Still really enjoying my second play through.

    Just did O&S, taking out S first so I can link up O's armor with a silver knight shield +5, Uchi +15, bow of Pharis / maxed pyromancy.

    O's armor works really well with the ring of faith and protection leaving you with a free ring spot.

    Currently level 59 and not really trying to up that:
    Vit 18
    Attunement 19
    Endurance 25
    Strength 14
    Dexterity 35
    Resistance 12
    Intelligence 10
    Faith 8

    If the mods don't sort this I foresee a class-7 internet riot breaking out.
