    Kindling to 20 - Any preferred order?

    Post by Zephryl on Mon Jan 14, 2013 11:35 am

    So I just got myself the Rite of Kindling, probably a little earlier than I should've but I was out of souls so figured I'd explore the Catacombs, and I was wondering if there are any preferred order to the Bonfires I should Kindle? Like, which are the ones I'll use a lot more than others?

    I've already kindled the Firelink Shrine and Parish one to 20

    I kindle all that I come across, I believe kindling also gives an Estus to anyone within same area ( or maybe just anyone in same area within specific sl)

    I think kindling to 10 is more than enough. Kidnle to 15/20 only when you have trouble getting through the location, or bonfires that have a long area full of enemies ahead, like New Londo, Royal Wood etc.

    I always kindle the parish bonfire to 20 (by the blacksmith), since it's another crossroads bonfire (sen's, forest, parish), and because it serves as a substitute firelink shrine bonfire. You should also go 20 for areas you plan to pvp in later.

    Eventually you will be able to kindle all of them to 20, but for now, if you lack the humanity, just kindle the ones that are connected to various places and the ones you cant warp to...unfortunaly my mind is blank right now so I cant recall the exact areas correctly.

    To be fair there is no right or wrong order to Kindle bonfires.I tend to Kindle the one's where I am most active at that time.It's also good to Kindle so you do not have to be tight on the chugging to help yourself an any phantoms you may have summond?....

    I usually kindle bonfires before bosses.

    Thanks for the responses!

    I'll have to have a look at the warpable location list, but it makes sense not to worry about Kindling any of those ones too quickly, or at least more than one anyway.

    PvP/Invasions aren't an issue at all either, since I won't have any online access on my Xbox for a fair while.

    Are there any other major "Hub" Bonfires, like the Firelink Shrine and Undead Parish ones? I think they'd be the most useful to kindle first~

    Anywhere I have trouble in. Or if I have too much humanity on me at any given point, I'll kindle.

    Yeah I think trouble is gonna be my main motivator. Just kindled one to 20 in Blight town, since I keep getting Toxic'd and don't have any Blooming Moss on me.

    I like to kindle at least one in each main area that can be PvPed in, just because I generally like variety, so I'm never entirely sure where I'll end up going. Humanity becomes so common towards the end of the game anyway, that by the time I get to last 2 lord areas I generally just start kindling all of them. Except for the ones that you'll never be able to PvP near, like the ones in Ash Lake, and so on.

    If it's your first successful playthrough, kindle all the bonfires to +20 in preparation for NG+.

    If it isn't your first playthrough then kindle the ones you frequent the most.

    Another good one to raise to 20, at least in my opinion, is the daughter of chaos bonfire, since it can be used to farm the titanite demon once you open the elevator and lost izalith shortcuts, and it is the closest warpable bonfire to blighttown swamp, lost izalith, and demon ruins.

    I would also recommend kindling the chamber of the princess, since it is an excellent place to farm from, as well as the second tomb of the giants bonfire.

    If you have the humanity, kindle every bonfire you can before your next playthrough. If you can get them all, you won't have to worry about the rite of kindling at all.

    I'll definitley Kindle as many as I can to 20 after I can teleport, I'm sure there'll be some I forget about or simply don't find, but I'll take note of those ones if they're useful for farming =D

    You shouldn't kindle all the warpable bonfires, because you could simply kindle one "main" bonfire, and teleport from there.
    You also shouldn't kindle the demon ruins bonfire because it's so close to the daughter of chaos(which is warp-able)

    Firelink
    Undead Parish
    Daughter of Chaos
    Anor Londo
    Dukes (If I'm a Mage - otherwise ToG)
    ToG (If I'm a Cleric - otherwise Dukes)

    After that, I probably just do them as I come to them for farming or anything else.
