    I'm about lvl 30. I've just defeated the Gaping Dragon, also done the Butterfly and Hydra. I'm up to 20 hours played and I feel like I'm only at the start LOL. Gonna take me forever.

    I still haven't summoned anyone, I'm probs gonna give that a go soon though since I keep getting invaded all the time.

    I want to get summoned because each successful killing of a boss while summoned lowers the requirements (50 faith) to join the Sun Knight covenant by 5.

    Ok, started playing this about 3 days ago and got HOOKED. This game rocks! I just took out the two gargoyles and right now I just kind of feel awesome. Just before I killed the gargoyle I was like centermetres from falling off the building. Had no health, rolled away from an attack and "oh crap im going to fall". That would have sucked bad because the last gargoyle was almost dead.

    If I fell off the building my controller may have went flying, but I didnt so now I can just enjoy the awesome feeling of success.

    Oh yeah and I didnt notice about kicking down the ladder until AFTER I passed the Dragon. Dam I wish I found that ladder earlier!!! oh well, doesnt matter now.

    I'm thinking of purchasing this game. I've heard it's hard but I'm always up for a challenge!

    I got to a point where I was very close to beating a boss and then the game bugged out on me and a body slam attack suddenly had double splash damage. Called it quits after that.

    There was only one time that a major bug got me in the game. It was during a boss fight and I had two phantoms helping me. As soon as we walk in the room the boss shoots lava at us non stop and all 3 of us died instantly!!! I was so pissed. But since that there have been no bugs I have come across.

    WTF.... Patch 1.05 makes the game EASIER!!!!!!

    just downloaded the patch and noticed that I can now kill enemies in one hit instead of two, and also the amount of souls enemies drops looks to have DOUBLED!!!!!

    not really sure I am happy with these changes. My level 70 character is now godlike and kicks a little too much ass. I guess too many people were complaining about how hard this game was, so I guess they lowered the difficulty to get more people to play.

    Ok well i finally finished the game. I finished the game at level 112 so i was fairly chunky at that stage. Spent a fair bit of time near the end helping other players kill bosses.

    I was thinking of going for the trophies but they are supper hard and frustrating so I prob wont. I think you need to clear the game at least 3 times before you get a shot at the platinum. The game is hard but if you build your character properly I dont think its that hard. All you need to do is specialise in a small set of skills and build one main weapon.

    I'm still plating this whenever I get some PS3 time. Still haven't got round to BF3 cos of it!
    I've just been cursed by swath the scaleless and dropped about 70k souls in his den... Bugger. I started another playthrough (which I'll go back too later) because I finally think I understand how to build a good character. The game is wayyyy easier 2nd time. Game of the year for me without any competition.

    In my first (still unfinished) playthrough I was stuck at the undead burg for about 6-7 hours (lol), the second playthrough I got to the next point after it in 2 hours. Alot of this is to do with what I learnt from my previous mistakes which is what the game is all about. After completing the game it starts you on "New Game +" (then ++) which makes the game harder but with more souls for kills... I'm yet to see how tough it gets.
    If you're wondering about playability or replayability, I've sunk 90 hours or so into it so far and I'm still addicted. It's not for everyone but if it gets you it's defo good value. Also, I rarely use gameguides at first, I like to beat a game then check guides for any trophies that I have left... I have been utterly stuck at times on DS though and I've had to read guides to progress. If you do play, try to get as far as you can without help, it is the best way to get the feel for the game, I was shitting myself at times

    New game + does make the game pretty hard. You get invaded a lot by other online players and you pretty much need to have online phantoms to help you kill some of the tougher bosses.

    The most important thing is to build your character properly. If you dont build a good character the game becomes almost impossible.

    I defeated!!

    When you say build a good character DP, what do you reckon is the best way to go?
    I'm just about to start NG+ but I might just start a new game...

    I finished the first run with 30vit, 53 str, 34end, then about 18-20 for most of the others (I think dex was a bit higher and attunement & resistance about 12, I levelled int & faith to use greatsword of astora - waist of souls lol).

    i havnt played this for a while. distractions u see. by the looks of it thers been a patch for this already and makes it easier?? hmm shows how much ive been out of this game for. Should probably try and finish it especially since they've put down the difficulty (even though I was enjoying the difficulty).

    After 150 hours played... I actually could be of some help. If you need anything explained, I've pretty much got it figured out.

    I can also tell you a few bits and pieces to do at the start to make life a bit easier. It's really not that difficult a game once you come to terms with how to play. The start (2nd to 3rd bonfire after the tutorial level) is the hardest part of the game.

    Also, don't use a guide if you can avoid it. You'll get much more from it if you figure it out yourself - look at a guide after to see how much you missed!

    Well I went a knight and chose the master key. Died a few times during the tutorial, so satisfying killing the first boss. Not far in at the moment but really enjoyed it. This thread will get the revival it deserves!

    I've got a fairly low level pyromancer (soul level 19) I think you can summon +/- 10 levels so, depending on ur level you could probably summon me to your game to help you out. You have to be human though, you cant summon if you're hollow. Got a decent demon catchpole I could drop you ;D

    Yep. There are a few extra bonuses when youre human - most importantly, you can summon other people for help but also there are a few parts of the game that you only get if you're human as you play that area. The drawback is you're open to invasions and there are some pretty experienced players with maxed out equipment at low levels just trolling new players lol

    I started my first playthrough as a knight with masterkey too, pretty good combo first time out. When you start to level-up, put your first points into vitality & endurance til you decide what sort of dude you want to build. Alot of the other stats are very dependent on weapons and magic so it's easy to waste levels at the start. Later, it'll cost you over 100k souls per level so good to use the first few well.

    Got the platinum trophy! Nice one for the collection. It's not particularly difficult but it's taken me well over 100 hours to get.
