    This post is a little off topic but gave some light relief inbetween farming.
    Had a great time last night fighting PvP.
    Joined the Darkmoon Blades and had a blast in various area's of DkS, with some really good fights.
    There are some unscrupulous guys out there though, backstabbing upon entry - litterally I appeared and they stabbed me! and then gangs of holigans 2 or 3 vs 1 (me!)

    If you see me "Ooo Lee ooO" - give me a wave happy

    Hi Livedlime,
    I've lost abit of momentum.....
    I'm facing the bed of Choas, managed to "pop" the left and right "bits" lol - technical terms.... but now got to hack my way thorough the centre and getting a bit fustrated with it --- the bonfire is miles away, well OK not miles, but a distance and when you get all the way to the boss and one swipe and your dead its as fustrating as hell !!!
    I've got my Thursday nights to myself so tomorrow I'll get back on it and give it a go ---- just for you -- lol

    Are you running by the titanite demon each time? The bonfire that takes you by him is the closest. I can be more specific if you want.

    Also, two thoughts for getting through the middle on he'd of chaos. Think either real heavy, two handing a great shield or think light, speeding by the hands in light armor, such as the gold hemmed set.

    This thread is fantastic: reminds me so much of my first playthrough. I'm at the end of NG++ and I'm waxing nostalgic. I remember the complete fear of the Depths after I went there the first time, got Cursed and then killed by Kirk, or when I went down the tairs behind the locked door before the Taurus Demon only to find a Dragon Tooth to the face. The messages from other players were so helpful: telling me several false walls and that beam in Anor Londo by the Gargoyle. And Ornstein and Smough, my goodness, Ornstein and Smough. I had my Sunbro Solaire helping me out, since I couldn't solo them, and every other attempt I'd get invaded and killed. All my Humanity drained away, and then on my very last piece I beat them. I never thought of logging off PSN to prevent invasions...

    The Bed of Chaos was evil on my first playthrough: Run, Jump, SWIPE!, Die, Respawn, Repeat 'til Fade. On NG+ I did it on my second attempt. Once you know the position to jump from and you learn the attack pattern for the gap between swipes it gets easier.

    Hi Guys, its been a while... too long....
    I got totally disillusioned with Bed of Choas, to the point where I basically gave up (Booooo.... light weight..... I hear you all call)
    Well 6 months later and I was looking in my local games store and ......OOoooo whats this -- New Dark Souls Content !!!
    I fondly rememeber hours of fantastic fun on Dark Souls... posting my progress on this forum and having a great time, so will this DLC content live up to my expectations?
    Will it reignite my love of the game?
    I have seen a thread which talks about bosses, apologies if i'm treading over old ground.
    Whats the general opinion ? is it worth £25? will it rekindle my love of the game which I lossed my months ago?
    Your thoughts would be very much appriciated.
    Lee

    Is the Artorias of the Abyss worth it, you ask?
    Yes, it is!
    But you should make your own opinion about it.

    So let me give you some basic info.

    Playtime is around 2-10 hours, largely depending on players skills and how much of the new content they want to explore.

    Story is about three of Gwyn's Four Knights, with Artorias, playing the lead, the fall of the ancient kingdom of Oolacille and the nature of the Abyss.

    Gameplay is difficult and unforgiving, as it should. happy
    The DLC was intended for seasoned players, that have finished the game. While many may disagree to this, it is a stonehard fact, that enemies in the DLC are tough and bosses prove to be a challenge, even to high level characters, as they are quite different in contrast to other bosses.

    Additionally, the DLC gives you acces to new armor, weapons and spells, which are very good. One spell in particular is all the 'rage' these days. :mask-averice:
