Dark Souls tips.

I know that this is one of the most difficult games out there, but it was given to me for free haha so why not lol.

Anyway knowing that fact, I literally dont see how this game is possible to complete in some aspects, there are no way points or anything so I find myself lost a lot, or I run into seemingly weak enemies that freaking annihilate me lol, or ghosts that I cant even harm gang banging me lol.
Any tips, or anything to recommend?

It's not hard it just takes patience. I haven't finished it yet because I play it for a few weeks and then get bored and play something else, but I have friends who have finished it 2 or 3 times. Only tip I can give is "stick 'em with the pointy end,"

The biggest thing I can say is upgrade your equipment, not your character. Get the basic handling stats and just upgrade your equipment from there. Every time a friend of mine play it for the first time, they always wind up having 50 strength/dex for nothing.

Also, if you're running into enemies that just flat out seem impossible (black knights are pretty hard for someone who doesn't know how to backstab), you're going the wrong way. For example, you're supposed to go through undead burg first, not the grave yard or new londo ruins. New players should be entering these areas usually around 60 (most common level I've seen for new players)

I would frequent the Dark Souls forum a lot more, but there is this one super uppity guy there so I don't even bother any more. Hit me up for co-op and I'll help you through bosses, areas, and just give you general tips and opinions. It's really fun for me to co-op with new players and get them into the game

I would agree that the combat is mostly patience. PvP is where the re playability really shines. That being said, there are a lot A LOT of different builds you can do and I basically played this game for a year and a half straight. It depends how much you like trying different combat types.

Sweet man! Thanks haha, and I almost forgot that game had a co-op function but yea man that would be awesome too. I think most of my problem is i've been getting lost in the wrong directions like you said. 

I need to revisit dark souls, it is the hardest game I have ever played

Asking for advice already?

When it doubt, co-op. It not only gives a warm fuzzy feeling that has nothing to do with alcohol, but it;s the equivalent of easy mode for this game.

^^^Haha I was wondering if it was in reference to that!

I thought Dark Souls was going to be a lot harder after hearing all that I did, but once you get used to it you can be pretty untouchable.... Untill that one stray hit gets you and it's all over, but I'd suggest starting out as a pyro. It was a very good introduction for me using that class.

That is one thing I have to point out, Pyro is probably the most powerful spell class, well if you listen to all my friends. And while I did use it a lot to begin with, I have found that the miracles set of spells when you get the more powerful ones is more suited to the way I play. I find I use them more effectively than pyromancy.

So I guess I do have one bit of advice. experiment with all the different forms of magic, you might like to mix them up, or you might like to focus on one. I use one because it is easier to run around with one Talisman, catalyst or Pyromancy glove equipped on my alternative shield hand slot.
