    Uh...Yeah I do but...Spoilerish.

    In the spoilers.

    Spoiler:
    New Strength Dragon Weapon, a Greatsword. Supposedly the R2 does flat 2k damage in an explosion similar to the grant.

    I quite like the new dark sorceries that you can find throughout Oolacile Township. I've had some success with them as a purist sorcerer during invasions. The Dark Orb casts slowly but travels fast, and the Dark Beads are released really quickly. The Fog is a useful DoT to land, and it has some good reach and can be mistaken for Dark Orb during casting.

    Finally something to mix things up a little with. happy

    Edit: the Silver Pendant is absolutely stupid, though. silly

    Silver pendant is the counter for the magic. It repels it.

    Yeah, it defends against the dark spells. It does nothing against the standard soul sorceries, though.

    The devs said 70. I've been doing it at 62 and haven't had much trouble. Just make sure you can fastroll...

    Thanks.
    Also, is there any info on old savegames? Can I use them with the dlc?
    Because I´m preparing (to die) a build right now for the new content.

    I'm sure you'll be able to access the new stuff on your old games.

    In the first prepare to die edition trailer, there was a pyromancer ascending in some kind of tomb. Does anyone know where that is?

    Can someone who actually owns the game tell us exactly what the soul level brackets are for the arena?

    Thanks.

    Besides the question above, I also would like to know if the matchmaking allows you to find matches with restrictions, such as forbidding spells or even weapons

    How about you check the wiki this forum belongs to?

    http://darksoulswiki.wikispaces.com/Battle+of+Stoicism

    "Fights are organized in brackets of these level ranges: 1-50, 51-100, 101-200, 201+."

    I'm one of that created that page and added part of the info, just check the WIKI if you have any doubts before posting.
