    Most difficult place to run through

    Post by Umhglo on Wed Mar 07, 2012 6:51 pm

    Hey guys!
    Me and some of my friends sometimes dare each other to skip fights and just run through areas.
    We ended up doing so some hours, until we made it from start till end of Sen's Fortress, so I thought, which areas do you think to be very hard, but still possible to race through like this?

    i'd have to say the catacombs, i always do that first and its a pain in the *** with a sl 4, mostly because of the switches.

    If your goal is to skip as much of the game as possible when it is time to go through blighttown go back to firelink shrine if you have the master key then you can go down the stairs and get on the elevator to new londo hug the wall on the right and you will see stairs go up them and you will see a gate assuming you have the master key like I said before then you can go across the wooden bridge and you will run into a few enemies but you should be near the water wheel in blight town If you listen then I may just have saved you 2-3 hours of fustration (side note Astora's Straight sword is near by when you cross the bridge look to the left and you will see a "dead" drake make a suicide run as get as many things as possible I hope I helped you win:cheers:

    In low levels - definitaly blighttown. I just hate that place

    At later levels, camera and invisible things can kill you in crystal cave for absolutely no reason...

    Blighttown. Always have a master key to avoid the upper level. Catacombs. I do an uber speed run. Basically one big fall, then summon Leeroy and run to Pinwheel. ToG. Speedrun to the first bonfire, then fight everything. Archives. Speed run the whole way.

    I got sick of doing these levels, especially to make my PvP builds.

    I suppose ToG would be the hardest with no light, but if you do have light then I'd say New Londo is the toughest, assuming you have to get the key. Getting in that building and up that ladder is pretty nasty.

    Thank you guys!
    I think i will try running through New Londo & Catacombs with a low lvl character happy
    I'm always skipping Blighttown by farming moss in the Darkroot gardens, and then either run through dragon valley from the elevator in Darkroot Basin, or by using Master Key, but Blighttown is just a "must-skip" area for me, since i don't see no reason in fighting all the mobs just to get poisoned before the bonfire anyway. Only once did i try the other way, but that was with my main, so i've never done so ever since.

    to add to that ask your resident gravelord to spice up the area for you, you'll get bp skelle dogs and bp sword skellies(big ones) and they have large aggro ranges.

    This. Speed running down into ToG is actually not that hard if you know where you are going - most enemies can be run/rolled past on the way down, and then reset with bonfires if needed. But getting back out of ToG w/o warping is insane.

    The great hollow. If only I can light it ablaze... F-ing thief and a height killer. Screw the hollow, and screw the bed of chaos, those trees are annoying as hell.

    It isn't even hard, it is just annoying how many times I fall, how many times I get cheap shot... Err. Burn em both.

    yep, camera angles and glitches always make me fall at least twice.

    I hate the hollow. But, that's because I also really hate platforming.

    Yeah those red phantom skele-dog things are brutal. I was trying to help a guy at SL100ish fight Nito and he got GL cursed. One of those things came running out of the dark and plowed right through his other summon and I. OHK us both

    I remember someone being trapped down in the ToG. He had to go through several BP skellie dogs. They wouldn't go away, even after a couple weeks.
