Now cursed, tiny amount of hp, so i eventually boned home to last fire, top of the hollow, just cannot get down past those dammed mushrroms, frogs are no problem, so i may have to start a new game.Done so much uprading, sad life i lead, any suggestions anyone

    kill the giant clams, they drop purging stones that get rid of curses, be careful cause theyre really powerful, the drop rate is very hight by the way.

    I never could beat the mushroom parents because they are way too tough. The good thing is that they are slow, just run past them.

    The best way to deal with the hollow is to make sure you are not in human form, and don't have any souls to lose. With the bonfire right at the top, you just need to find the way down and dodge past everything, including the mushrooms. If you have either a fog ring or a "hidden body" spell, it makes it a lot easier. Remember, the frogs won't really hurt you except for the toxin. Keep moving and you'll be fine.

    Best place to get a fog ring is to go into the catacombs and try to kill the necromancers. One of them should drop one. Then you can take it to snuggly for a trade (there will be another skull lamp down where Reah is).

    But honestly, even without that stuff, as long as you keep moving, there isn't too much in the hollow that will give you trouble if you don't try to fight everything.

    Yes, there are a couple of things you can do.
    1.- As soon as you enter to Ash Lake there will be a Hydra waiting for you, so try being careful. To your right will be a bonfire in a safe spot, so rest and the prepare to hunt some clams, but be aware of the Hydra's attack. Do not engage the Hydra cursed, instead keep hunting the clams as they drop purging stones which cures you from being cursed. I suggest that you don't try to fight the mushroom guys because they hit really hard even they are slow.

    2.- (Not the best choice) Backtrack all the way to the parish, go with the sins guy and buy some purging stones for 5000 each. I think there is another guy in new londo ruins who can heal you, also, not good choice either...

    Go for number 1...

    Good luck.

    I ran a level 3 through Blightown, Great Hollow, and the Ash Lake fairly easy. The biggest issues are just accidentally falling off in the hollow. It's extremely easy, you can run past everything there especially the mushroom men. Put your shield up and run down the platform of mushrooms dodging the mushroom men. You should be able to block their attacks easily if they manage to actually hit you considering how slow they are. Run past the two giant mushroom men into the cave and you'll be at the Ash Lake. Go down the tree root and make a hard right straight towards the bonfire.

    Next time you might want to consider wearing the Dingy set and the cursebite ring.

    Also if you thought getting down the great hollow was hard I think you'll rage when you're going back up, that's a little more difficult lol.

    Good to hear you made it out.

    But, the first time I saw that dragon and wasn't expecting it...I nearly crapped myself.

    That's funny, for all the times I've played through this game, I never bothered to kill the hydra down in Ash Lake. Did I miss anything interesting, or does it basically just get rid of him.

    It just gets rid of him, unless he gets rid of himself first with his superman antics.

    Your dragon head disappears after you die but you keep the dragon head stone, you can just reuse it to get it back.
