    Yeah, I did kill the Taurus Demon. Still hasn't appeared. :/
    I can confirm that you CAN'T enter fog gates from the other side. :>

    Dragonslayer arrows can be bought from the Giant Blacksmith for ~100 a piece, or farmed from Silver Knights with bows. (They drop ~3 when dropped, they drop them at about the same rate that Painting Guardians drop Throwing Knives.)

    Bump!

    I've been invaded a lot today. Being level 118 is delicious; most invaders are much, much lower level than me, and as such the fights are mostly blocking then the invader dying instantly to a backstab (backsmash?). Even if they backstab me with their silly lightning weapons I only lose half my health. :D

    edit: at 62 strength.

    Demon's Greataxe +15: 596
    Smough's Hammer +5: 592

    :D

    Can you apply lightning/fire/poison to Smough's Hammer? If you can't, Demon's Greataxe will win hands down.

    I think you can.

    But you can do that to the greataxe too.

    Also, the hammer has slower attacks (albeit a much longer range) and a worse (much slower) 2-handed R2.

    edit: The hammer's one-handed R2 is like 200 degrees though.

    editedit: I just learned that the demon's greataxe has chaining power attacks. How badass is that? I used a one-handed power attack on an invader, and figured that the angle was okay and that I could do it again. Instead I went all Hulk and used an uppercut-style attack that threw him into the air.

    Incidentally, that combo dealt over 1200 damage >_>

    Ah, nice. xD
    I'm still on 50 strength myself, and mainly upping vitality (which is at 65 right now). I'll wait for patch 1.04 to see how the scaling will be before I put more in strength.

    But what do you mean with power attacks? R2?

    Yeah. Power attacks are R2. I figured I should vary my terms in case someone uses xbox.

    Related, I'm now stuck on Slenderman and Buddha. I have no idea how to proceed. I'm trying to get Ornstein's armour because it looks awesome, but the dude's lightning impale thingy just instakills me. I wasted something like 15 humanity trying to kill them yesterday, and it never worked. Hell, Ornstein even destroys me with Iron Flesh on. Wat do?

    You can:

    Poison Him (Dung Pies & Throwing Knives)
    Summon an Ally (Soltaire is on the other staircase)
    Get the Ninja Flip Ring and avoid the hits
    Use a crossbow/bow.
    Or keep on trying melee.

    And you could try pyromancy as well.

    I got 'em by... wait for it... killing Ornstein first. >_>

    How do fighting him with ranged weapons work? They seem horribly horribly useless, especially since Slenderman covers the entire room with one quick leap - which he can do while you're stringing your bow (especially if it's the dragonslayer). I did summon Solaire every time, hence why I lost so much humanity (I don't revive if I know I'm gonna repeatedly die, unless I need Solaire).

    Ninja flip ring = hornet ring?

    As for pyromancy, that wouldn't have downed him. I have 2 magic slots. :<

    Not looking forward to this fight on NG+++. NG++ is terrifying already, even if that fight was the only extremely hard one.

    Ninja Flip Ring = Dark Wood Grain Ring, acquired from joining the Forest Hunter covenant and killing the guy with the big scimitar's body guard.

    I though you were already able to kill Smough >.>
    To kill Smough you have to be able to roll (Which I doubt you can in full Havel's)
    Just roll into his attacks (Except the charge), hit once or twice, and roll out.

    You can kill Orenstein when he's in fatty form with ranged weapons, as he'll usually just chuck bolts at you. You dodge the bolt and fire off a round.

    65 strength, 20 dexterity.

    Demon's Greataxe +15: 600
    Greataxe +15: 571

    Well, that was a waste of a titanite slab.

    also, I just block all of Smough's attacks. Actually, I block all attacks in general.

    Guys, I went trolling(?) in Dark Souls.

    I equipped full onion armor, a catalyst, and a shield. I had the spells Chameleon, Cast Light, Aural Decay, and Strong Magic Shield, and began invading. I spammed Magic Shield so I was invulnerable, and used Chameleon, and followed people around as a pot. Didn't attack them unless they attacked me, and then I'd just parry them.

    It hilarious what some people do, a third of the people I invaded killed themselves by rolling off cliffs.

    oh god the awesome. I need to try that. Need to! Too bad I'm not a darkwraith. And I don't know where to find Dusk. Or how to get onion armour... hurr.

    I still can't +rep you. D:<

    You can buy Onion armor from the merchant in Sen's Fortress. No idea what you mean by Dusk?

    About the Darkwraith thing, what I did was first ''complete'' all other covenants (took me about 3 hours to help 10 people for Warriors of the Sun), and then join the Darkwraiths. If you then finish the game, you will be Darkwraith for the whole next playthrough (unless you change covenants of course). So you can invade people starting at the very first level, unlimited. :)

    Accidentally? Or to just quickly end the fight on purpose? :p

    But I'm wondering when that patch will be coming, by the way. It's been out like 2 weeks in Japan already?

    I'm chaos servant +2 for the shortcut to Lost Izalith at the moment. Don't intend to swap, since I plan to level up as far as it goes.

    Dusk aka Dusk of Oolacile.

    Ohh, right. I looked that one up a couple of weeks ago, even though it's actually pretty easy to find by yourself.

    After you kill the Hydra in that forest lake, near the four crystal golems, you must walk past the waterfall to the right (don't go up the ladder yet). Keep walking till you see a small cave with a golem in there. Destroy it, and done.

    When you kill the Hydra, the golden golem might not spawn - if it doesn't reload the game. When you kill it, Dusk will spawn and then disappear. You'll have to reload the game (again) and then her summon sign should appear near where the Hydra was.

    ...and right hand 1 is 690.

    <3 S scaling.

    Capra demons were nerfed, apparently. They stagger when I hit them once now, so I can just smash them thrice in a row to kill them. There's more narm when you get your bloodstain; RETRIEVAL!

    Also, VICTORY ACHIEVED! I'd have preferred A WINNER IS YOU! but hey.

    Do you know if the boss was nerfed too? That'd make it too easy >.>
