Capra Demon is cake when you know the technique, but it can be pretty overwhelming when you first meet him.

Dang it, man, this game is just too tough. I spent some time earlier just "grinding"; slowly collecting souls and levelling up a (little) bit. I then returned to the main quest and didn't do any better than before :-( . I'm finding the "re-do tons of stuff just to get back to were you were" approach a bit frustrating, too.

Gonna give it a break for today.

Run around enemies instead of fighting them. It's a viable tactic.

You know, my movement seems a bit slow in-game. Folk say I should run around / behind enemies but I don't have the speed to do so; we end up just circling each other. I just watched a YouTube vid of the section I'm in and the guy was way quicker - he could run behind baddies and back-stab them. Maybe my full-armour (knight) outfit doesn't allow this?

Hmmn... scratch that, he's wearing armour, too. Maybe I just need to practice on my movement and positioning a bit.

Edit: Well, he's wearing armour, but he seems way quicker than my sloth-like movement.

Edit: Ah! And he's bought a load of arrows from a seller. I haven't tried buying anything yet. This game has so much in it... but doesn't tell you anything about it :lol: .

I always found it handy to have a bow as a backup weapon. You can often get a good hit in or even pick a weaker enemy off entirely before they even know you’re there.

Pretty much sums the game up.

Dark Souls 1 & 2 look nice in my 360 collection, but I've neither the time or inclination to bang my head against a wall with the series. strawberry float 'get gud'. :lol:

Jawa, what's your equip load? What armour are you wearing?

Off the top of my head I can't remember what the thresholds are, but if you're wearing loads of heavy stiff, you're going to move and dodge slower. While your equipment load is quite low, you want to be wearing light stuff if you're wanting to dodge properly.

I think I have a bow of some type; I picked it up from a defeated enemy. I haven't tried using it yet and I guess I'll need to buy some arrows. Will give it a go, SaladMan!

I am wearing the start-out Knight outfit, Parksey. I'm using a Knight shield that I picked up; and I'm using a lance as my current weapon. I've only just realised - from watching a vid - that weapons degrade; I wonder if outfits do, too? I'm gonna check the degrade stats next time I play.

As for my level stats, I'll take a screenshot tomorrow and post it here :-) .

jawa, try taking off your armour piece by piece and rolling/running about in between each piece taken off.
youll be surprised by the difference equipment weight makes to your characters agility.

Theres a ring you can get soon Jawa that can help with that. But I don't think you are there yet.

Other than that if you put some stats into endurance (I think) it will increase your equip load.

I’d say until you have high enough stamina stick with a low equipment load. The Ninja Garb is a good shout if memory serves... assuming you’ve made it far enough to find it.

Finally worked out how to upgrade my Estus flask, that's some bollocks right there. What's the point of Reverse hollowing at the fire if it doesn't do anything?
Accidentally appear to have pissed off the dude at the Firelink shrine and now he permanently wants to kill me, so that's nice. Got to the next boss as well but died

Reverse hollowing allows you to summon help as well as leaving you open to invasion so it's a bit of dual edged sword.

Have you rung the first bell yet?

If so there's a guy just before it that will "Forgive your sins" and stop the NPC attacking you. For a price of course.

If by dude at Firelink Shrine you mean who I think you mean he eventually turns on you anyway, but not for a while

I assumed he means the guy sitting by the bonfire. But yeah that other guy should be killed quickly.

I meant the guy by the bonfire too. If you talk to him enough throughout the game he eventually starts talking weirdly (well more weirdly) and becomes hostile, he attacks you on the way in to New Londo if memory serves

Yeah I could never work out why that guy suddenly turned on me but he went down easily enough (kenneth.jpg)

I think you get a reasonable number of souls for dealing with him as well?
