    Can I be summoned into NG+ if I'm still on my first play through ?

    Yes. The only thing that matters is the level range.

    Nice.
    I just killed a red phantom with free aim pyromancy. I set it up with the Witch's Locks fire whip. Stunned it then hit it in the face with great chaos fire orb.

    Whew. Okay. Got some stuff done today. Found the shortcut between the Gaping Dragon's lair and the Depths bonfire. I never want to see those curse gremlins again.

    Then I went and killed the Gaping Dragon. Gotta love that lightning damage, though I finished it off with some pyromancy. Really just had to treat it like a Monster Hunter boss, and keep my distance while waiting for it to overcommit. Anyway, killed it, looted some proper armor, and made it to Blighttown.

    Aaaand almost immediately fled Blighttown and hoofed it to Firelink to buy some moss.

    Also went and grabbed the Drake Sword. It's still pretty powerful for where I am, though it can't be enchanted with my Magic Weapon spell. It'll still be a very good weapon for when I have no charges of that. Currently favoring my Gargoyle Tail Axe, though I get the feeling that the automatic chunk of poison and toxic buildup will be one hell of a drawback while I'm in Blighttown.

    I just got through NG++ from the start of the game to the area where the crabs are, all while continually trying to invade.

    I got zero, ZERO invasion hits.

    Man this is frustrating.

    Oh
    I can get 5 points of faith with this priestess ring!

    That puts me at 40/40!

    Nito!

    So is the ring of favor and protection good or is having one ring stuck on forever just too big a downside

    You know, I knew that Blighttown was going to be a disgusting shithole as soon as I heard that it was called Blighttown...

    But wow, Blighttown is a disgusting shithole.

    Whee! Beat Quelaag and rung the second bell.

    And now Sen's Fortress is almost making me miss Blighttown. Almost. The access to the blacksmith and the actual lighting make it still preferable to that place.

    That's actually increased resistance, it's just displayed weirdly. When you significantly increase a status effect meter, it has to "drain" from its previous minimum to the new one. It does the same thing when you equip the resistance rings.

    it does that so you can't swap on resistance gear when you've already got buildup started
    in theory anyway
    in practice it's so minor as to make no difference, as long as swapping it off didn't reduce your buildup amount so you could swap the ring on and off and on and off to clear the buildup or something

    I only ever did that place from the normal entrance once, on my first playthrough.

    Always took the shortcut from then on.

    Fuck doing the entire zone.

    How do you do the shortcut from the start? Can the master key open the door from New Londo to the valley of drakes?

    Yup, master key lets you run in that way

    Very useful, minimal amount of blow dart snipers

    Oh, well that's good to know. If I ever do the game over, I'll grab that as my gift.

    I got tricked by the Tiny Being's Ring on this run.

    Oh, good to know. I only got Toxic'd once or twice, so I guess my axe (and my Pyromancer robes) helped.

    The bigger obstacle to upgrading right now is just not having enough titanite

    It looks like swamp leeches are a good way get normal and large shards but I don't even want to do the back door section of the blight town walk ever again

    I've got my main stuff decently upgrades (Balder Side Sword +10, Elite Knight set all +3) but I'm greedy and want more

    best place to farm large shards is the depths - there's a bonfire at the end of a hallway filled with the slime monsters that drop from the ceiling. Just run the length of the hallway so they all drop down, kill the hollow at the end, and then walk back up the hallway killing the slimes. If you have any source of fire damage (either a fire weapon or even a pyromancy flame + combustion) then they die super easy and the bonfire right there makes it easy to reset and do it again and again.

    I've been doing a lot of grinding in the hallway leading up to O&S, from the bonfire you get after beating them. The giants have a chance to drop titanite chunks, and the enemies drop decent amounts of souls that you can use to buy more titanite from the giant smith.

    I don't know what that means, but yeah, PS4.

    I upgraded mine to +10 before realizing it has too high of a DEX requirement (and END) to work with my pyro if I'm stopping at 120.

    I could give you my +10.

    What is your PSN?

    I can get on in six hours.

    By save scum, I imagine she means saving a backup of her file, giving you the weapons, and then restoring the backup, to keep the originals.
