    Well, do you skip the giant fall shortcut at the start?

    Know how real men go into the catacombs? Go in without a divine weapon, range weapons and no poise with 5 flasks!
    Is there any other way to do it? The cats are still easy because the skellies are weak mobs, I just like the atmosphere so I ususally go through the normal way.

    The first time I went through the Catacombs, I didn't know about killing the necromancers to stop the skeletons from re-animating.

    I figured the only way to really kill the skeletons was to force them off a cliff. When I got to the Tomb of the Giants, I found the way blocked by the orange fog gate and had to fight my way all the way back to Firelink.

    Now, I won't say I'm a real man. The term "stupid" comes to mind...

    Looking back on my experience I have to wonder how many necromancers I had killed, but since I never killed a skeleton outright, I never learned they would stay dead on that run.

    Back on topic, what shortcut are you guys talking about? I guess I always go the full route. The only shortcut I take in the Catacombs is jumping to the right from the Bridge that Patches rotates. At that point I can go left and drop through or drop right to go to Vamos.

    If I want Great Scythe, TWoP, or unlock Vamos I'll just clear it all.
    If not, or if I died and have to go through it again, it's suicide jumping time.

    btw
    Nice Poll, love the options. lol!

    I usually summon Leeroy and let him handle them.
    Then I go take a
    :mask-father:
    :bas:
    :dragon-stone:
    :dung:

    And his HP is back on top, so he can go kill Pinwheel.

    Don't have to lift a finger.

    I usually summon him, drop down to the cleric set and by the time he's summoned he takes care of a few so I can run to the boss fog. That one time he decided to stick around at the bonewheels.
