you have now gone further than I have ever adventured

the last time I tried to get real into Dark Souls I beat Ornstein and Smough with a summon and then felt bad about myself, so exited

Really enjoying these posts, IS, please do keep updating us on your adventures.

I've had fun having an excuse to return to the game even though in my experience on PS4 at least the initial burst of return activity died off pretty quick and now I'm not getting much PVP activity.

The DLC is maybe the best part of DS1 so yea, hopefully you get to give that a try. Just uh read some spoilers on how to find it or you'll beat the game and never know it was there.

oh i read about the gold tracer a while ago, ive been meaning to try that

for stuff like twinkling titanite, is it better to farm the mat itself or just to farm the souls to buy it from someone?

also man reading what i could do with sif's soul made me really want to try a "big sword guy" build. which is i guess what the character i was playing before i started this great-scythe-run guy was, like a quality-ish build. but getting the reqs for greatsword of artorias seems pretty niche? like i wouldnt really use both the faith and the int for anything else, i think

personally I think you're better off farming for souls (and any other items that may result)

Best of all, just learn how to dupe boss souls, which is really easy and can save lots of time if all you really want is to buy a big stack of titanite to try out a bunch of weapons.

You can only really dupe items that have confirmation boxes as far as I know - so boss souls work, humanity doesn't.

You just:
Equip boss soul to item bar
Roll
Item button before the roll finishes
Menu button before the confirmation box pops up
Go into menus and use estus
Hit yes on the confirmation box when it returns out of the menu
It will use the estus, keep the boss soul, but give you the souls

Homeward bones definitely work to test duping. If you "dupe" one of them you'll warp without consuming the bone.

I should probably beat o & s. the most annoying thing about that fight is how far both bonfires are from the boss door. I've been there for like a year. all the other bosses were easy wtf

the bonfire next to the silver knights feels pretty close once you open the door from the room with the silver knight armor

i was wondering if the second bonfire in darkmoon whatever could maybe be faster once the big double doors are open, but no way anything involving that dumb elevator is fast

but my first like 20 attempts were before I found that bonfire (running all the way across that big bridge and up the big stairs) and then I got sick of it and I should probably return to lordran
