    I've got one. Cleared out most of the burg of loot and will taking on Taurus next session.

    Plugging all of my points into str and dex so hopefully I can use it soon.

    I have to say, playing this again the way the world all links together really is superb. Amazing design.

    After a c6 month hiatus I'm in the same boat as you Rob, I let my Gold sub dwindle though in the interim but I can still glean some fum from some more insane solo challenges, right?

    No shield, no leveling, Pinwheel first boss run I'm thinking...naked Depraved with beefed up Caestus's maybe.

    How was DkS2 btw, I never bothered with it despite my 1000+hrs in DkS1. The twitch videos I've watched have all been a bit....ok but meh.

    @bottlecaps

    Welcome back buddy :)

    Pinwheel first eh? That's brave!

    You've summed up dks2 pretty well there tbh. It's a great game no doubt, but it's just not as good as the first two.

    Taurus down. I have drake sword but I doubt I'll use it for long as I only need 2 more dex to be able to use the bk sword.

    I dont remember that bk at the top of the tower in the parish being so hard. My shield did nothing against him.

    I've also managed to build up 5 humanity somehow. I suppose I should do.some kindling before I lose it!

    Did someone say challenge runs?

    Alright you got your standard Soul Level 1 run, apart from your health being miniscule if you know enough about the game you can get a fire reinforced club fairly early on and switch to a backup lightning one when bosses are fire immune. It's still a challenge but the way the elemental weapons system works in Dark Souls 1 helps it out a LOT. As does the fact it is insanely easy to level your pyromancy glove to high levels early on.

    Personally a more challenging run would be either a Dual Caestus run (doing that run taught me how to parry) or a two handed only run, the lack of a shield really makes things quite interesting and you can't rely on the same old tactics.

    You could go for a Whip Run, say goodbye to ripostes and backstabs combined with an awfully low damage weapon, sure you can use a shield but by god do fights drag on if you use the thing unbuffed.

    Of course there is the ultimate challenge run, one I haven't done myself but that is a no-levelling, starter equipment only, no elemental upgrading, no pyromancy run and starting as either the Sorcerer or the Deprived.

    If you're feeling particularly ballsy a No Death run is obviously a choice as well.

    Haha you really are a masochist :)

    But I applaud it!

    I'm currently doing a bkh run. Admittedly not very hard, but!, I haven't died yet and am going to try and do the whole game without dying

    /instantly curses himself for typing that

    What's this quad? An all night session?

    I'll try to catch up, although I won't be on tonight.

    Working my way towards The Dark Soul achievement, just Knight's Honor left to get. Currently on NG+ with a STR/END build, rocking a maxed out Gravelord Sword, BKH and Ornstein's armor set. Am not looking forward to O+S on NG+ at all, but at least I got Ornstein's soul on my first run through, which apparently is the harder of the two to get.

    Really feel like I own this game now. I even finished off Gwyn with a parry/riposte.

    @Dr_Mech

    I'm a bit on an old hand when it comes to EG challenge runs, and initiated a few on here in a previous lifetime.... :)

    Dual Caestus sounds fun though. I used to be a dab hand at parrying, I wonder if after a long break from the game if my reflexes are still up to the task?

    Had too many beers in the afternoon and fell asleep. Woke up at about 3 in the morning bright as a button, so chose dark souls to lull me back to slumber :)

    No idea - sounds good though!

    So is the BK sword any good? I was thinking of using it as my interim weapon while I get enough strength to use the halberd.

    Dunno - picked one up last night and the damage looks good. I'm not sure on the moveset though, but I bet it's fun

    Struggled a bit with the gargoyles last night, got there eventually though (sorry for making you hang about for nothing quad!).

    Also got invaded in the parish by what I assume to be a hacker. I backstabbed him for exactly zero damage. So fucking annoying!

    So next up I'm going to do the garden to get the wolf ring. May as well do butterfly while I am there too. Then on to capra before heading back to the asylum to get the rusted iron ring before heading through the depths to blighty.

    No worries. I had some fun with the bkh character. Has pretty much done the same run as your description. Died 68 million times in shitetown (thanks camera angles) so that's this non-death challenge run down the shitter. Did quelaag though so theoretically sens but I might piss about for a bit first in great hollow and forest
