Never assume to know where "the ground" is in Dark Souls 1.

@Dezzy hahahaha...yeah, never make assumptions. I was just referring to the area after all those dang walkways!

After 90+ hours I finally finished this game last night. Loved it and looking forward to another play through, maybe as a sorcerer next time, but not for a few months at least.

Pls can anyone help! I need a dark souls expert! Lol
So basically I made a new character as I accidentally killed the blacksmith Andre as he kept chasing me, little did I know I could have paid the guy off to deaggro him! Lol
Basically I’m looking for Lautrec as I never let him out the cell yet he is not at the fire link shrine! I’ve only rung one bell and have not yet gone to Blighttown So can anyone tell me where this guy is!

As I suspected before I started, I am finding that I suck at Dark Souls. I'm taking it painfully slowly, and am still in the Undead Burg - not got to the infamous gargoyles yet, but I believe I'm about to find the blacksmith. I completely missed the merchant until I consulted an FAQ, and now am spending more time poking into every corner, which means I keep disturbing giant knights, including some guy with a massive club at the bottom of the bridge tower who OHKOs me every time. Urk.

Great game, though - thoroughly enjoying it.

You don’t suck, it’s just a brutally hard game. I’m finding it necessary to look up info from time to time when I get stuck. I prefer not to use guides and refused to use any for games like BOTW. But that game is self explanatory and Dark Souls is not. The combat is great, though, and the world design is amazing. But I constantly have this feeling that I’m missing something because elements of the game are thrown in with no explanation of how they work or what you’re supposed to do.

Try fighting him with no armor on at all. His attack is strong enough to 1-shot you for the most of the first quarter of the game so you're better off taking the armor off so you can move quicker and dodge his attacks.

He has a very valuable ring that you'll want to get from him.

@linq @Dezzy Thanks for the encouragement, you two!

I hate myself for doing it, but I've done a bit of digging around in FAQs, and so discovered the Drake sword and got a bit more guidance on what I'm doing. It's maddening that things to make the game easier for complete noobs, like me, are the kinds of things that complete noobs are unlikely to ever find. I mean... Who thinks to stand on a bridge firing 20 arrows at a glimpse of a dragon's tail?

I intend to do as much as I can without FAQs, but we'll see. It's a game I can't wait to get back to playing on the train home from work each day, though.

@Krull I would say it depends the person. A person that leaves no stone unturned might find them.

Another strategy I was listening to is not worry so much about souls at first. Any items you collect while exploring, you keep. Then grind out some souls.

@zionich You are right, of course. And that would usually be me - I am pretty painstaking when it comes to RPGs. However, I feel that Dark Souls sometimes discourages exploration by throwing a massive difficulty spike in your face, like Havel the Rock or whatever his name is at the bottom of the round tower. I’m never sure if I’m supposed to take the tough guys on now, or wait until later in the game when I’m more powerful. It’s great that the developers leave it up to the player, but it’s an aspect of game design that I’m not used to - yet. I’m not criticising it, but I am still only just getting my head around it.

I used the fire reinforced club pretty much 75% of the game till the end. If you can find that right weapon you can make the game a bit easier.

Bear in mind that the only reason you had access to him that early is because you had the Master Key, which opened the door to the stairs.
Normally, you'd have to wait until you get into the tower from the door at the bottom, which doesn't happen until later on.
