    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)
    I'd rather not kill the Capra Demon.

    I'm making a Darkwraith, so I gotta kill the Four Kings to talk to Kaathe.

    Then at least upgrade it to Fire. Would still work better.

    It would be neat if you attacked one of the small mushroom people, they would scream causing all the other mushrooms people to surround you and try to kill you.

    At SL1, with a +5 Reinforced Club, Gold Pine Resin, RTS ring, Power Within and with a Jump Attack to Plunging Attack I do 1530dmg to the Taurus Demon.

    You should be able to get way, way more out of what you're using than 1700dmg.

    This glitch is almost exclusively on NG+ and I've never heard of it happening on NG.

    Pretty much don't kill him on NG+ and you won't run into it, do kill him on NG+ and it's almost a certainty that it will happen though.

    +1

    I can do 8000+ dmg with Dark Bead in PvP, almost a minimum of 5000dmg in PvE.


    So balanced.

    I think that would be most logical, seeing as he has studied crystals and their magical properties for some time.

    But on the plus side, Seath is ridiculously weak to fire, like a lot of bosses.

    Gwyn is the lord of Sunlight and later the lord of Cinder, making him have large control over fire, but strangely he is weak against fire.

    I heard a theory about that before, that he is slowly "burning away" so using fire attacks against him speeds that process up.

    I think it's because pyromancy produces a different kind of flame, the flame is more connected to humanity and the undead so the gods would have very little defense against it.

    Gankers can, in fact be easy to beat.
    There's a glitch that allows you to cast pursuers and crystal homing soulmass simultaneously. Looks badass. But it's damn nearimpossible to pull off reliably.
    Buffs can make whips viable weapons.

    . Strike as a damage type is unique from the other physical damage types in that no weapon that deals it has the potential to inflict an additional type with a different attack from its moveset. 

    I never really noticed that. Quite interesting.

    You can stagger Sentinels, crystal golems, and titanite demons.

    Today was actually the first time I had seen that particular lizard. Went all billy-bada$$ on him with a Crystal Soul Spear buffed with TCC, Bellowing DCRing and Dusk Crown.

    First time I saw it, rolled right off the ledge.
    None of the crystal lizard walkthroughs mentioned it and it wasn't in the wiki either.

    The three annoying dogs at the beginning of the lower undead burg can easily be lured into running right into the pile of burning corpses.  It 1-shots them in NG.  

    If you destroy the gyro statuette things in The Duke's Archives the metal balls in the middle can be kicked for a short period after.  And if you keep kicking it you can keep it 'alive' longer.  Guess where I've been doing darkmoon invasions today...

    If a painting guardian falls on the chandelier it will break the chain and the chandelier will fall.  Makes sense, but I'd never seen it  before.

    Shiva is based on an Hindu God that had 6 eyes. No wonder why that God originated from the East.

    Though this is personal experience, it takes approximately 15 minutes to make a complete, but not fully upgraded, Oscar cosplay.

    Start as a Knight, complete the tutorial. Then get 14 Faith and run down to the Valley of Drakes to get the Astora's Straight Sword and Dragon Crest Shield (it helps later). Run to the Darkroot Garden (by going to the elevator, running past the Black Knight, and going up.) Run from the little puddle to the fog gate, then make a dash for the Elite Knight set. After you get it, run all the way to the titanite Demon in the Parish, around it, and then go to the Church to activate the elevator and then hop off do where you would to go the Asylum. Enter the Asylum, kill the Hollows, and head to Oscar's spot. Kill him, and you get the Crest Shield. If you have a Homeward Bone, use it. Otherwise, run all the way back to the nest, and then hit the Firelink bonfire.

    Boom. Oscar cosplay in 15-20 minutes.
