Still not use to the lack of healing items though. Demon Souls I could just farm grass, this... I only get 10 or 5 depending on which bonfire i go to... D:

Maybe I shouldn't have thrown all my points into STR/DEX so i could use that Black Knight Sword which I didn't even read it's weapon type which turned out to be a Great Sword... /facepalm.
5/10/15 Estus is fine, usually 5 will do, 10 for the harder places. 15 seems excessive. If you're having a lot of trouble, you can turn human and summon Solaire (NPC) to help you before the boss, or another player. BKS is excellent, I've been using it since Undead Burg and I'm still using it now in Anor Londo, although it looks like I could replace it now, or very soon. Only draw back is that it's a bit slow, and the heavy attack is the biggest piece of shit ever, so use jump attack instead.

Edit: OH YEAH, he drops an OP RING THAT BOOSTS YOUR HP, STAM, AND EQUIP LOAD BY 20%, BUT IF YOU TAKE IT OFF IT BREAKS.
If you let him live and let him kill the Fire Keeper, you can invade his world and kill him later in Anor Londo. If you do, you get his drops from if you killed him, AND his full armor set. You don't get his armor if you kill him before he kills the Fire Keeper.

Someone invaded me in Blight Town. I blocked and immediately shaved 3/4 of his HP off. Then I jumped off a cliff while he used the ladder. God knows why he would do that. I just waited at the bottom to jump attack him and kill him. Free 8K souls. The life leech ring is on a body in the sewers. I think it was the one against the bars in the giant rat room, but you need to go around.

A path in the water when you meet the first butcher down there.


A lot of the bosses have really stupid tricks that make them piss easy to beat. Otherwise, you're left wondering how the hell you win, or struggle doing it the hard way. The Quelaag boss for example was a bloody nightmare, leaving no noticeable openings aside from after breathing the fire, which is ridiculously hard to bait out. The melee was unblockable as well. The trick? Put on my fire resist gear, which somehow made the melee BLOCKABLE (yeah I don't know, what the hell man?), and just roll towards the boss when it does the first melee strike, then just hug it so it can't hit you and then wail on it.
