    Choice #3 is to continue deeper into the Burg.

    You'll meet a very charming fellow.
    And his gigantic battle axe.

    I'm at the end of my rope here. I've tried crossing that damn dragon bridge at least 15 times to no avail. I'm avoiding the oil and yet even through my shield he's one shotting me.

    There has to be some trick to getting across this damn thing and I can't figure it out for the life of me.

    If I have to make the trip from the campfire to the bridge only to die within seconds one more time I'm going to throw my controller through my tv.

    I killed the lightning demon before I killed the gargoyles

    Heavy soul arrows are pretty effective against him

    be under 50% equip rate

    Sprint on right side of bridge, you'll get hit, get up and duck into the stairway on the right

    yes

    i plan on doing this if i play again

    I dare say this game is worth more than what I paid. It's like they knew everything I wanted even if I didn't know I wanted it. Then gave it to me.

    I'm trying to figure out why being human is so necessary. Im having fun being zombie so far 5 hours in. Maybe that will change later. But, right now it doesn't seem so important if I only gain more flasks and help if I need it but that comes with the added danger of people invading me. I feel like the cons are out weighing the pro's here. I have to be missing something. Or maybe I just enjoy it the way i'm playing it...

    being human allows you to summon others, making zones alot easier when the monsters are tackled by two people (since zones themselves don't level up in health as compared to bosses when you have other phantoms in)

    yeah, it's cause they made blood pools to spawn 10 seconds before where you died

    Unequip all of your armor and sprint. You won't even get hit. Just tried it and it worked.

    I wish this was a viable strategy in more games

    i cheesed this dude so hard. i got him to constantly shoot directly at a broken marble pillar while i pelted him with arrows from across the screen. i felt like i was cheating, but fuck this game.

    We tried nothin' and we're all outta ideas.

    Well, souls and humanity. If you got soul items, you are fine.

    yeah, t's a good idea to only redeem soul items right before you're going to use said souls, lest you die and lose them

    Oh man, that moment in Demon's Souls when you finish the final boss, start NG+(+++++...), and you have 140,000 souls and nowhere to save until you kill the first boss. It's like winning the lottery, and then having a bunch of people try to kill you while you go to the bank.

    played this a bit on my brother in law's xbox. It's Demon's souls, again. this would normally be a complaint, but it is one of the few games where more of the same with some tweaks is a pretty good deal. hopefully demon's dark souls continues the trend.

    Its just. I didn't know a boss fight would pop up at that point. Had I known I would have used all those souls :(

    It's really not a big deal, I've done it, too (in Dark Souls, even). Just try to remember, even though you might be carrying potentially tens of thousands of juicy souls, they aren't safe if you use them.

    when you abandon a covenant, your name gets put into some sort of book of sinners

    people can only invade you if you're human AND you're in that book

    you can get out of the book by paying the priest that shows up in the church after taking out the boss there

    but yeah i havent found much use for humanity yet other than blowing it on kindling when i have more than one to spend

    No, it's fine.

    I'm trying to figure out why being human is so necessary. Im having fun being zombie so far 5 hours in. Maybe that will change later.

    in addition to the above (+item find, being able to summon help, not looking like a dead dude), you also do more damage / have more hp / more resists or defense or something.

    Also, some NPC's will react too you differently. And you can kindle fires.

    So, yeah, there are reasons.

    Fairly certain that's not true.

    There are certain covenants that TARGET those people, but if I use a cracked red eye orb, I can go after anyone who's human. Even if they didn't sin.
