I think I may go back to the depths and farm some humanity and level up a bit before trying the forstress again. I've spotted a few areas like Anor Londo and that lava place after Blighttown, so may give them a go. It also comes to mind that I need to get back to the undead asylum and get a few special items (according to the walthrough on IGN).


How have you spotted Anor Londo if you haven't got through Sen's Fortress?


From the back entrance of blighttown yes, i think thats anor londo? I cleared undead asylum apart from the stray demon. I was hoping to have some online help, but couldn’t see any summon signs. I spent quite a while farming humanity in the depths, which i felt was a necessity going forward.

Currently i have the drake sword at +2, but thats not strong enough for the lizards at the beginning of sens fortress.


no that's New Londo :)


How do i get to anor londo?


Through Sen's Fortress.


But i can’t even beat the two lizards outside of sens fortress! I might do darkroot basin.

What weapon are you using and what level is it at?


Drake sword + 2

The Drake Sword is only good for the first few areas and after that it's easily outclassed by other stuff you can get. Plus, it can only be upgraded with dragon scales which are hard to come by. Are you concentrating on strength or dexterity?


Oops! Strength, endurance and vitality mainly. I have the black knight sword, but can’t wield it!

That's one of the best weapons in the game. Level your stats up so you can wield it, focus on strength after that and you can just stick with it.


I can wield it now, but its still less powerful than my drake sword and I need twinkling titanite to upgrade it, which I don't have because I upgraded the great black knight sword stupidly. I cannot wield that weapon at all! :fp:

It might be slightly less powerful now, but because it scales with Strength it will increase in power every time you level up, whereas the Drake Sword won't. It's not all about upgrading, although obviously you should do that too.

Even on +0 upgrades and the minimum stats to wield it properly it should hit 276 Attack Rating. Which should be better than a +3 Drake Sword.

Also, you can just use it two handed if you don't meet the requirement to use it in one hand.

Its 222 or around that at the moment. I wish I had read a guide before hand as I also failed to kill someone I should have as its made the game more of a pain!

Yeah! Anyway, I just need some powerful armour and that ring that increases drop rates so that I can get more humanity.

you dont need armour at all in Dark Souls - aside from resistances in Blighttown, Izalith, and
Seath's
boss fight maybe. you can run around naked and youll be fine and youll be better at actually dodging stuff

If you go into the weapon status it should show the damage as 220 + X. This X is the number that is from your weapon scaling and should be putting you over the Drake Sword.

How come I can't summon help at all bonfires or is it simply there not being anyone online? I would really like some help doing the dark root garden after having killed the hydra after 10 goes! The black knight sword is actually at 282, rather than 220 as I first thought as it upgrades everytime I level up. It is a bit slow though in its animation compared to the drake sword isn't it?

DR Basin is wierd - the hydra isn't a "boss" as such, and not many people summon there.

There's also restrictions on who you can summon/be summoned by based on level (unless you're MASSIVELY over/underlevels, but like 30 levels it shouldn't matter)

Try looking around other places for summon signs than near the bonfire, the slope into the open bit of the basin before the crystals/hydra spots you is popular.

What platform - I could help if you want on PS4

Easy way to kill the Hydra


- If you haven't gone there already, go back to the Undead Asylum and there is a door to the left of the starting area which is easy to miss. This will take you to the "Lower Taint".
- Kill Any/all Grobens you come across and continue forward until you meet the black stranger. DON'T ATTACK HIM
- Listen to what he says (or you can just skip until he keeps repeating himself), then kill him.
- He will drop the 'Ring of Paranium'. Pick this up and then go up the ladder and this will bring you back to the room where Havel was/is.
- Run past Havel (or talk to him if you like as he wont attack you if you have equipped the ring) Then carry on up the stairs to the top of the tower.
- At the top, speak to 'Feltch the armourer' and he will give you a 'Flangestone' (IMPORTANT - Don't equip it)
- Go back to 'Firelink shrine' and pick the 'Covenant of bayge' from 'Arquete' , she will upgrade the Flangestone to a Flangestone +1
- Also buy a flask of "Rusty Pipe Water"
- You simply need to take that, along with the 'brown pebble' (from the starting area) back to the 4th white tree in the forest by the Hydra (about halfway down on the left) Drop the pebble and drink the from the flask.
- A cutscene will play and the Hydra will die and the lake will drain. This will then take you to the "He Mel Hem Stead", prob the best level of the game IMO.


Good luck.

That's such an accurate representation of Dark Souls side-quests.
