    You sir , have now made me curious enough to go and check it out big grin

    btw while i'm at it , what are the letters when you check weapon stats ( A,B,C,D...,S Ect.) ?

    "S" is the best and "E" is the worst unless you count "-" which means that the weapon does not scale at all. The drake sword does not scale at all so all that stats have "-" (minus quotation marks).

    The same spirit that convinced me to improve my parrying against Silver Knights big grin (That, and James from Gamefront could do it, I wasn't about to be outdone lol).

    My general advice as a first time NG player is not to sit on souls too long unless you really have a grand plan for them. Expect deaths and try to minimise the casualties and you'll advance through the game while learning quite a bit about the enemies.

Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

    I would've been mad if I were trying to level up or buy things, but I was at the level I wanted and had the consumables I needed. Still it is a lot, maybe after all this time it still hasn't hit me and later in life I'll have a random burst of rage? :bom:

    When I have that many souls but nothing I want to buy/no stats I want to level I usually just go and buy truckloads of titanites from the different blacksmiths. That stuff always comes in handy, be it for upgrading or for trading with others, and it can't be lost upon dying like souls.

    My girlfriend once lost 59 humanities on her Sunbro(or sis, if you'd rather) at the Mushrooms at the Great Hollow. That was such a messed up moment, slipped off a mushroom near the lower part of the tree and got beaten to a pulp by the Mushroom Parents :S

    I've read that for smaller amounts of souls(don't think it would apply to 1mil) you can just buy Dung Pies and feed them to Frampt when you need them. I think the cutoff is at 198 dungs.

    Also , is Backstabbing a chance on hit? because i watched a video of dark souls and the guy was backstabbing everything. I'm SL: 33 and i probably did like 2-3 backstabs , and it's not because i never tried it. I just litterally cleared Undead Burg and Parish trying to train my backstabbing , and i got 0 backstab. I even noticed i forgot the knight guy guarding the place where you get the knight shield ( close to sen's forteress) i snuck behind him and got a clear backstab on him , but my character just hit him normally like if i was standing in front of him...


    So yeah , i tried with Drake Sword , Falchion , Scimitar and spear , and nothing happened , i'm really getting annoyed by this..
