    Shields actually gain special properties if you ascend them. For example ascending a Grass Crest Shield to Fire will cause it to have more Fire resistance. Unfortunately only certain shields will get huge resistance boots, most shields only gain 10-15% boosts or none at all.

    Puts the stability back to base though. If you upgrade the cracked round shield(i think its the one) along the magic path, it has the best magic defense in the game.

    Kalameet can fly up and spew fire on you if you manage to get up the ladder mid-fight. Prostration

    Try and make it to one of the ledges protruding out of the waterfall, I think you can be just high enough he'll stay on ground and be out of attackrange.

    Actually it's a magic warrior's round shield +10 that gets really high magic resist (low stability though).  A fire sunlight shield +10 is one of my favorites though, 90% fire resistance and it's wide enough to often conceal what you have in your other hand when you are blocking.

    Re crossbows, how does a magic light crossbow do in PvP?  I love crossbows but usually go with a heavy crossbow +15 and heavy bolts.  Does an enchanted crossbow get scaling for an Int build, for example?  Seems like 75% of the people I run into have the dusk crown on, so anything that does magic damage is of interest.

    I'll do some testing on Crossbows in PvP one of these days.

    As it is in PvE though, lightning crossbows and lightning bolts are sh*t. Magic/Divine Crossbow with heavy bolts is far better, and for any DLC bosses +15 is the way to go.

    A Divine Crossbow with Heavy bolts will kills Skellies dead, so it definitely transfers some of that magic damage over, give it a whirl, you might get a nice damage boost to the Duck Crown users.

    Crystal Magic Weapon + Falchion +15 + Heavy Jump Attack + Taurus Demon = 1,700+ damage.

    This might be well known by now, but I just realized how damn easy it is to soul farm at early levels by Drake-Baiting. In Undead Burg, kick the ladder down into the first bonfire. Wait, leave, climb the ladder, run the stairs, get a couple of steps onto the causeway leading to the Drake from the staircase, roll back onto the stairs, roll down the stairs and haul *** back down to the bonfire. While you take off and run, your old friend the Drake will nuke everyone on the bridge, netting you 555 souls. This can be accomplished easily within 33 seconds, netting you roughly 1k per minute, which is far from the worst return for your time investment that early in the game.

    Drake Baiting is boring, though. Good for 5 runs or so if you need to stock up on stuff from the handy merchant.

    I could take it or leave it, it is nifty if I'm not a sunbro early game, otherwise it's more effective and encouraged for a sunbro to just coop the garg/spider/whathaveyou. Maybe coop in general is more effective for SF early-game?

    I've also discovered that no one likes getting killed by a bowman.

    Ornstein is still alive when Smough smashes his butt, but Smough doesn't give a ***.


    Killing Ingward on PC sometimes results in a bug where Ingward doesn't drop the Key to the Seal.


    Killing the Mimic that has the Crest Key and then dying without grabbing the drop will result in the player unable to get the key for the rest of the playthrough.

    Your fingers wiggle when you apply Repair Powder to a weapon.

    If you apply it when going down one of the elevators in the Township, the dust flies up in the air but the weapon repairs anyway.

    That happens in every videogame. I remember that years ago when I was playing Spiderman Web of Shadows and was on top of a very fast jet, I did some sort of energy punch, but the animation effect went behind me because of jet motion, the punch still connected though.

    Drinking Estus while the spinning elevator in Anor Londo is moving causes a yellow dot to fly across the screen.

    Popping a Soul does the same thing on an elevator or moving surface; it trails behind white smoke.

    After being attacked the little mushroom people in the forest will retreat to were the two big mushroom people are then when there they will start attacking you. I think its like a weird form of Dark Souls cuteness.

    Also, I've never had the little mushrooms in the forest attack me. It really is cute.

    A Bastard Sword +5 does 44 damage on the Four Kings.

    In other words, don't use it against them; by the time you put a dent in the overall health, two more Kings have spawned.

    Don't use any +5 weapons on the four kings? (except for the unique one's of course)
