Too many guides I saw were stating that 40/40 faith/Int were essential for a pro in later game I'm at 24/25 so not all is lost, will have another look at where I should level up on stats

Meanwhile I have reached Sen’s Fortress. Ruh oh. Nope. Nope.

Have a Pyromancer myself too, but I’ve put some work into buffing his stats in regards to strength. Those nasty Serpent Soldiers have a pretty high tolerance against physical attacks. Shame.

Going to be tough.

@3dg3d3m0n That sounds more like a hex build in Dark Souls 2.

@Spoony_Tech - sounds like you’re killing it! Have you got any prism stones? Not essential but they can be handy in there!

@Sadist - yeah they can be a pain, their poise is quite high so they can be hard to stagger. Backstabbing works well though Good luck in the playhouse - always fun and games!

@3dg3d3m0n (obviously) I don’t doubt what you read, just surprised that people/guides pointed you down that road? It’s far from irredeemable anyway as you suggest; up to you which way you go (and there are no really bad options) but if you want to keep going pyro then Dexterity plays nicely with it - albeit marginally - increases the cast speed with each point? I’d suggest strength as next alternative, but with points in both Faith and Intelligence though you could conceivably go in any direction? A dex/faith build is awesome, pure Intelligence is good, dex/pyro can be deadly, strength/pyro very solid too - in other words there are lots of viable options so finding one that you like is better than listening to someone saying ‘this is optimum’ etc

@BrainOfGrimlock I do not as I literally just entered and got attacked and fell to my death lol. Wasn't even sure how to get down from where I was but I'll figure it out.

@BrainOfGrimlock I worked it out eventually, I'm a muppet, I'd been looking at DS3 advice rather than remastered.
I'm going to start again and go for a dex/Int build as it's costing me 14K per upgrade so realignment will be expensive

@Spoony_Tech That's right about where I ended up before I bought Moonlighter on a whim this weekend. Got a little tired of DS's grimness and wanted a change of pace.

Good luck in the Crystal Cave! Or as I call it, the 'Cave of AH-F^&[email protected]##!T-NOT-AGAIN'. I always get a little over-zealous there, forgetting where the paths are and occasionally running down the side of a crystal you can't really run on.

Ok so I seem to be having a n00b issue. I picked up the heater shield and would very much like to use it but it's not letting me equip it. When I select my shield in the inventory, the "Use Item" option is crossed out.

Edit:
Nevermind, I finally figured out the menu system. Some of the controls are a little odd. But now I've got decent items equipped and life is good.

@zionich
Ya, I really don't see why they won't allow us to remap those two buttons. It's like they're intentionally trolling us nintendo gamers.

But other than that, I'm loving this game so far. This is the exact type of game that nintendo needs to keep bringing to the Switch for those of us who aren't into pokemon and jrpg's and the usual nintendo fare.

How do you access the "Artorias of the Abyss" stuff? I killed the Crystal Golem staring at wall right at the start of The Duke's Archive but it didn't drop the Broken Pendant.

@SilverEdge92 Did you kill the Golem in DarkRoot Garden first?

I'm doing damage but not taking any health off the boss I'm on in the Crystal caves. Not sure I want to take the time to figure it out just yet.

@Spoony_Tech If it's the second time, look to the back of the cave at something out of place.

Edit: Duh on me. The crystal cave is the second time.

@Spoony_Tech Sounds like you might need a small ‘other game refresher/DS break’? It wears us all down at some point, sometimes better to walk away and come back later else it feels like a chore!

When you’re ready to go back and beat on him, @zionich has pointed you in the right direction - just note that if you die you’ll have to ‘redo whatever it is you do’ to make the fight winnable.

As an aside I think from memory his damage is all/mostly magic so change equipment as needed, pretty sure there’s a status attack too - think it’s curse? - so again, be wary!

Sure that given where you are now you’ll trash it when you go back in any case.

NB: Doesn’t really suit your build but the tail makes a great sorcerers weapon - mentioned a few pages back how in the first release it was so difficult to get as the tail hitbox would often clip through the wall... Ah, memories!

@BrainOfGrimlock It is and the first thing I need to do yet again is remove said curse. The game is telling me I can remove said curse from someone in New Londo but I have no clue whom or where.
