    Fastest way to get to 120 would be to get to end game and just use the winged knight rapport soul farm.

    Running around Lothric Castle in general will get you stupid amounts of souls. Do a couple of circuits with the Covetous Silver Serpent Ring, especially up near where the Lord of Cinder fight is, and you'll build up souls pretty fast

    spoilered in case somebody doesn't want to be surprised by a late game enemy, idk

    but this is a pretty good guide on how to do the farm

    They're not, really. They're just good at dodging them.

    what's a good place to go after anor londo (ds1)? I'm kinda lost for direction at this point, too many options seem designed to kick my teeth in immediately.

    There's Seath's place by Anor Londo, just head out of the first bonfire in there and take the left. Or you can go for Nito. To get to him start heading through the skelemans by Firelink Shrine. Lastly there's also Izalith. Head down to Queelag and keep going down into hell and kill the Ceaseless Discharge.
    Or you can do what I did and just spent 25 levels getting huge in Anor Londo and upgrading a ton of weapons you'll never use.

    New Londo is the most stressful area in the entire game (you need to be cursed or have the false curse status on, unless you want to use a shitty cursed knife) so I like to get it out of the way as early as possible

    Edit: Oh yeah go with what Platypus says, if you haven't done that already

    If you've been to Anor Londo, have you done the DLC yet? You can unlock access to it once you've placed the Lordvessel.

    She just got done with the hardest boss fight in the base game (unless the final boss gives her as much trouble as I had)

    The DLC is great but three of the four bosses in there range from "about as tough as Smough and Ornstein" to "AAAAAA! AAAAAAAA—"

    I'd suggest going somewhere else just to unwind for a bit

    No, don't avoid it, the DLC content is more difficult than mostly anything which is in the base game

    What you're referring to is more of an easter egg which also requires you to find some specific stuff in the DLC

    You need to go after that second boss to beat the boss of New Londo, and you want to get that shit out of the way early

    The DLC thing is for NG+ or just when you feel you're a huge enough bad-ass to take on the toughest fights in the game while relatively low-level

    You will never see every easter egg or secret thing on your first run through a Souls game, so worrying about it instead of following the path a first time run through wants you to take isn't really worthwile

    To be honest, the DLC is more fun than the other remaining areas.

    It's the one post-Lordvessel area that's actually pretty nice.

    Still in Sen's Fortress.

    Getting kind of tired of the extra dev messages that pop up when you die a lot in the same area.

    It's like "yes. I get it. I'm dying a lot. You don't have to rub it in with extra hints."

    edit:

    Yeah, okay, I prefer Blighttown to this place.

    Seems like they just adjust to your location as you ascend.

    If I had a strong enough bow, could I kill the giant that sets them up?

    ...he says, as if he's made it to where the giant is more than twice in 25 attempts.

    they literally do change paths as you ascend to the path you're on and there's no explanation for why

    yes there is. there is a device that controls where the balls roll to you can even manipulate it and set it to a direction where it won't bother you until you die.

    right, but there's no one there to manipulate the mechanism
    it turns itself as you pass invisible trigger points on the ascent, there's no pressure plates or anything

    having recently gone through sen's

    you fight guys beforehand and then it seems to stop, but if you go in certain directions afterwards, the mechanism shifts to follow you, even though there shouldn't be anyone left to operate it

    it's real dumb

    you mean the outrider knight at the bottom of the elevator from undead settlement?

    basically, fight them unlocked. roll behind him when he goes to swing at you (under their sword arm), try to get in one or two attacks and then prepare to repeat the maneuver (roll behind). you may need to roll once or twice before it loses track of you during their multiple swings

    I watched Distortion2 do a run with Yhorm's Machete yesterday (someone dropped it for him so he could use it from the start).

    With 60 strength, his charged R2 did 1700 damage to Aldrich. He killed Abyss Walkers in 4 hits total. He did a combo to Yhorm that took off over 11000 health.

    It was fucking crazy.

    60 strength? Is goign that high really that good? What kind of scaling does the machete even give I wonder

    Wait how high is 1700? I can't remember how much my charged R2s did with my +10 Greataxe at 40 Str. Like... I think it might have been south of a thousand

    I believe 40 is the soft cap for strength, but Yhorm's machete has different scaling from anything else, so it's still worth it to go to 60. He was at 55 Strength plus the Knight's Ring. The Yhorm fight is at 2:29 in this video if anyone wants to check it out www.twitch.tv/distortion2/v/69977706

    holy shit did you see how hard that hit was
    Does Yhorm's head have some kind of damage multiplier on it? I guess it would have to but holy moly

    Do we know what other equipment this guy was wearing?

    Oh man now I gotta go upgrade Yhorm's Machete

    Gonna watch me this whole playthrough now

    Serious question: When you say Yhorm's machete has different scaling, can you elaborate on what you mean? I can't find anything on that from a quick google

    I'm not actually sure. It was all coming from people in the twitch chat talking about testing weapons. But after watching every boss get fucking destroyed, I assume they were right.

    Also if you get bored, just fit killing as many enemies as you can with traps into your run. I found it pretty amusing, which made the runs less monotonous.

    You still get his sword this way too.
