    You only get the repair box once (per playthrough), then you use it at your bonfire to repair whatever you want, whenever you want. Definitely get that!

    You should also get some repair powders for when you're not near a bonfire and need to repair you weapon in a hurry. I know the undead merchant sells those... but you killed him didn't you? Maybe the female undead merchant sells them too.

    Huh... according to the Wiki, the undead merchant was the only one to sell them. And that's why you don't kill NPCs! I don't know who's responsible for this crime-wave, but the poor undead-merchant is getting killed by everyone nowadays and I find he has some nice wares.

    It's really not a big deal though. With the repair box, I've actually never (ever) needed to use repair powder--and I've used Katanas a lot. If you use a weapon that has a special R2 ability that uses up its durability, powder can come in handy, but even then it's not necessary. The box will suffice.

    you can buy arrows from all blacksmiths and other merchants, so no worries there.

    allow me one note here: so, one lesson learned is... dont do whatever you hear others say and do your own research. You wasted the merchant because you heard someone saying you will get a powerfull weapon but you could find a much stronger weapon than the uchi extremely easily from the dragons tail. Anyway no big harm done, but be cautious about everything you read or hear winking

    my advice would be to make a choice early on as to what you want your char to be, be it a mage dont waste points on faith -like others already said- and use every point where you need them. It is very common to be lured to upgrade your stats so you could use various spells/weapons that you find as you progress in the game, but -as i found out the hard way- this is wrong and in the end you will end up with a char that is medium in everything and good at nothing. There is alot of builds in the wiki to help you decide, so i think all the help is available to you to decide. Good luck!

    If you're sticking to using your Uchigatana I'd recommend you limit yourself to 30 endurance. If you plan on using a bigger weapon like the Moonlight Greatsword then 40 endurance is a must. I'd raise your Int to 44 to be able to use Crystal Soul Spear later on, 50 maximum if you want to use White Dragon's Breath. If you go with your Uchigatana then you should use the regular upgrade path and take it to +15 which will give you the best damage. Later on you can get Crystal Magic Weapon to buff your Uchi and it will do around twice the damage depending on how high you raise your Int. For dexterity I'd say 40 is good, 45 if you want to cast spells the fastest. Don't raise resistance or faith, attunement is up to your personal preference really for more spell slots. Vitality should be between 30-40.

    The key to the new londo ruins just opens a door in the Valley of the Drakes. It provides a shortcut from Blightown to New Londo which leads to the Firelink Shrine. The master key does the same thing. Killing the Capra Demon and beating the Depths is optional, you'll miss a lot of items if you don't do it though. If you do decide to skip it then your only option is to go to Blighttown through the shortcut in Firelink/Valley of the Drakes which is how you found the key and proceed to beat the boss. This shortcut to Blightown makes you miss out on a lot of items though as well.

    Also, the ring is worth it especially since you don't have any other good rings at that point in the game. It increases the damage of your spells by a significant amount.

    You have to get the necessary embers and give it to the blacksmith. The first one for the regular upgrade path is in the Depths and the second is in New Londo.

    Look it up on the wiki if you want to know specifically. You can also check on how to beat the Capra Demon if you're having that much trouble with him.

    You can kill him now, or later.

    - Kill him now: you get the Ring of Favor, a few humanities, and Anastacia (firekeeper) never dies.

    - Let him live: he kills the firekeeper, and the Firelink bonfire will go out. Go to her body, and pick up the Black Eye orb. When you get to Anor Londo, in the large hall before Ornstein and Smough's fog gate, the Orb will vibrate. Use it there to invade Lautrec's world. There, he'll be with 2 buddies of his, and you have to kill him--standard invading rules apply (you can't heal with Estus, but you can still use humanity and miracles). Kill him to get the Ring of Favor and Protection, a few humanities, and the Firelink Firekeeper's soul (Anastacia's). Also, since you killed him this way, after you've killed O&S, take the elevator up and you'll find his armor in the back corner of the second floor.

    Once you have her soul, you can return to her body in Firelink and restore her to life, which will re-light the bonfire. Or you can use it with another firekeeper to reinforce your estus flasks, or use it to gain 5 humanity... Probably best to just revive the firekeeper!

    So if you let him kill the firekeeper, you get all the same stuff plus his armor, and you can choose to revive her or not, but you have to deal with not having the firelink bonfire for a while.

    His armor's nothing outstanding. Just nice to have it if you're a completionist! I like to have a character with every weapon and all the armors, so I can test loadouts for builds.

    As far as armor stats go, it's pretty similar to other medium sets like the Dark set and the set of Thorns. One or the other is almost the same.

    That's my build silly

    If you plan to PvP to and will be a Darkmoon you can go above SL 130. You can still invade SL 120s easily, my Dex/Int build is 160 now and invades the SL120 range just fine. The few points you lost is okay especially since you can level up higher then 130, with 12 faith you can also use Force or Emit Force(I forget which one, but they are essentially the same thing) which allows you to push opponents back and create space.

    If you're just sticking to PvE then a few points misplaced is really insignificant. If I just did PvE I'd level up as high as I possibly could, you can't really mess up lol.

    If you're going to aim to invade SL120 people, shouldn't it stand to reason that you should be SL120? You're openly admitting to giving yourself an unfair advantage...

    People already fight quite unfairly in "duels", I at least like to be as fair as possible--especially if I'm setting an example. Don't start telling people to be SL160 to fight SL120s when you have no idea how many people will follow your advice. That's just further contributing to the deterioration of PvP when it's already mostly rotten. Also, I can tell when I'm clearly the better fighter but my opponent is a much higher level than I am. When my 600+ attack rating SLB Estoc deals 120 damage from a running-R1, clearly there's something wrong, not fooling anyone.

    It was a suggestion, not a demand, he paid good money for the game, he can play however he chooses to.

    Edit: And Int builds are hardly overpowered in the PvP scene, the only useful thing that they have is the MLGS and it certainly doesn't do anywhere near the damage of any faith build much less have their versatility of immobilizing opponents, spamming a 360 degree radius spell, healing, negating magic damage, and the DMB/SLB buff which was mentioned earlier in reference to the damage.

    Might want to stick to the topic, he's asking for advice, not people telling him how he has to play. In the end he'll do whatever means he'll enjoy the game the most.

    I prefer to believe that people who pay for a product are entitled to a fair and balanced experience, not anarchy. People are constantly saying "I paid for it, I can play it however I want" to justify tactics they know are unfair, and I'm very sick of hearing it. You absolutely can do what you want, nobody's telling you otherwise--I'm not--and nobody can make you do otherwise. But can you honestly deny that it's unfair to try and invade SL120s at SL160? And can you also honestly say that you're happy with PvP the way it is now?

    Here's what I can honestly say: no matter how bad PvP gets, I will keep being fair. Not give myself unfair level advantages; not heal in a duel; not do cheap lagstabs; not stack cheap gear. Not only because I find absolutely no fun in being cheap, but also because I hope to lead by example. When someone beats me by being cheap, but realizes I was the better fighter, I hope I at least inspired them to better their skills and to fight more fairly rather than keep relying on their crutches.

    Also: I know what I wrote was very preachy, borderline patronizing, and I apologize for that--I'm listening to music while writing right now, and it has that effect on me! silly

    Nope, Drake Sword has no scaling, so stats won't increase its damage.

    Yes, there's a firekeeper soul in New Londo. It's right at the start, so you can even make a suicide run for it if you like. Just after the wooden bridges, when you get to the first ghosts, make a right. Then, make a right again (you'll have to go around a wall first) and you'll notice a path in the shallow water, at the end of it is a small room with a body--that's the soul. Be careful, though, there's an ambush! When you go on the path, ghosts will come up from the water. I usually aggro them, go back to safe land, kill them there, then go get the soul. So I don't actually know if you can suicide run across the whole thing--I think the ghosts might pop up too soon, and if you try to run you'll fall into the water. Anyways, that's the soul! You can try and get it when you have no souls to lose.

    For Twinklings, there's an enemy that drops them, but it's further in the game. They're giant clam shells--you'll know when you see them! You can find them in Ash Lake or in the Crystal Caves... your game is not patched, you said? The drop rate is quite good post-patch, but pre-patch you may have some trouble farming them. It might be best for you to hunt down all the crystal lizards you can:

    Use the stairs to force the dogs to attack you first, then kill them. Without the dogs the Capra is incredibly easy.

    There are no NPC's for the Capra.
