Right then. I tried that door in cathedral ward again. It just says closed. The only thing I can think of is that you open it from the other side but I cant find the other side. So I popped back to the lecture hall. Found a few rooms I couldn't get in before. The big hall.
The framerate here was almost single digit stuff and for looooooong time.
Luckily the enemies are piss weak by this point so it didn't really matter but lordy is was bad. Anyway, I found a ladder and got in the room with Anakin Skywalker the spider. He said some stuff. Then I went back to Mensis. After searching for a bit I found a gap in the wall, was in the starting room for the Microsoft, Host of the Server boss fight. I used the key I had. Then off I went!
Holy gooseberry fool.
Ad7 and Hexx were not kidding. This is how quick frenzy was building.
I mean over the many attempts I noticed it was wildly inconsistent. Sometimes exposure to it for a split second was enough to fill the bar. Sometimes it was more like a full second.
I switched to the best frenzy resistance stuff I had. Which I think meant changing one thing and a rune.
Things improved a bit. I just did it bit by bit. Picking up items as I could. Dying. Picking up more. Dying. I eventually made it across to the room on the otherside. Here I was greeted by a singing twat. I fortunately managed to carefully clear this room first time.
I found a bell that was useless to me.
I then decided to investigate the source of the light.
I ran in and fell through the hole in the ground. Each time I just got a bit further. Landed on the ground. Spotted the item. Spotted the hole in the wall. Then nearly got through the hole. Eventually I got through the hole. Waited for frenzy to pass and charged to the item! Finally I have found Blood Rock!
Whoop. So I sort of felt like I cleared this bit. But then I remembered earlier on when I was higher up I could see glowing items above this bit. So I tried to figure that out. I was unsuccessful.
I looked about next to the source of the light. Went back in the building. The only thing I found was a new lift that took me down below to the abyss where I had terrible flashbacks as I feared the dreadful Four Kings boss fight was about to happen again.
Nothing was here.
So I need help. Can you actually get up there?
Went to DLC land. At the mo in the battle between Hexx and Ad7 its in Hexx favour. Its cool. But I've only made it to the first major shortcut just after the NPC. However it didnt take much to turn one bit into a stupid janky mess.
