    The worst thing about that chest was I saw it coming. Since the very first chest I saw, I was like NOOoooo, swung at it... nothing then hours of gaming later when I had lured myself into a sense of safety from killer chests... that one chest in the floor of the sens fort.

    I walked around it at first, avoided it for a long time, then curiousity got me, and I back tracked to go get it. FFFFUUU!!! as soon as those arms came out I laughed so hard. Damn you From, you sadistic jerks.

    EDIT: if you have a pyromancy hand and a decent shield you can run most of the archives with just great combustion.

    I heard pyromancy was a neat feature in this game, but not worth investing in since the spells take to long to charge to use and no scaling modifier for it that helps mag adjustment, only over priced upgrades to make it a little stronger.

    I completely disagree w/ this analysis. Pyro is wonderful simply because you can upgrade it to max (yes, it does take a lot of souls), but don't have to level up your character. A lvl 25 w/ a max pyro glove is a force for that level. A great fireball can do upwards of 900 damage to the gaping dragon. Then you have spells like combustion and great combustion which are powerful AND fast, faster still if you are Dex based. It's a tool any character can have and will benefit from.

    greetings everyone. this is my first post to this forum... i took a short break from Dark Souls for Skyrim, but now i am back on the grind. i have a question about Mr. Andrei and weapon ascension.

    i have given the Large Ember and Divine Ember to Andrei but it keeps telling me i have no weapons for ascension when i go to modify. i have not ascended any weapons in this game yet so i am unfamiliar... i have only upgraded them with titanite. i do not know what i must do in order to ascend a weapon.

    The weapons need to be upgraded to +5 to be ascended. And welcome to the forums man.

    Yes, you need Dragon Scales, however it really isn't that great of a weapon. As time goes on upgraded normal weapons will out damage that drake sword because of stat scaling. Good luck in your adventures in Dark Souls.
