You use humanity to kindle the bonfires, which increases the Estus refills you get from them. You have to be in human form to do it.

So 1 humanity to become human (Reverse Hollowing), then another 1 to kindle the bonfire and add 5 more refills. Different bonfires start out at different levels of kindling. So some are 10 and some are 5. You can get it up to 20 I think, with a key item later.

Thanks, that was the part I was missing. So is there any reason to stack up more than 2 humanity? Seems like a risk, I already lost 3 due to negligence.

Yeah there are various status effect bonuses you get from it. The most useful one being the "Item Discovery". So if you're trying to get rare item drops, you need to consume lots of humanity to increase the drop rate. I think it maxes out at 10 though.

Recently got through Blight Town. I'm wondering if the stuttering was what made this area difficult on other versions. It wasn't a cake walk by any means but I was expecting it to be super hard.

@NESlover85 It's just bad framerate from the original versions. Blighttown is actually my favorite level in Dark Souls due to the complex level design.

@EvilLucario @NESlover85

It's one of my favourite areas too. I never played on X360/PS3 though, only PC so I dunno how much of the framerate issue I got. I think it was below 30fps on PC when I played it but probably not by that much.

It is quite a hard area in general though. If you enter through the main route from the Depths, there are so many places you can fall to your death. Then there are the toxic dart blowers, which will easily mess you up if you're not prepared for them.

I do love the design of the area though.

@Dezzy I hated the dart blower guys! All in all a very cool thematic level. I never did get to the bottom of that big tree though. I kept falling and dying.

@EvilLucario I have Dark Souls for Switch and PS3. On PS3 I never even made it past the Taurus demon lol. On Switch I am currently in Anor Londo. I am dreading the boss fight here as I heard it is quite difficult.

@NESlover85 Don't worry about it. Ornstein and Smough is the best boss in the game. Even better than the DLC bosses which are all excellent. Difficult yes, but also very fun to fight.

Tbh after OnS, the bosses become a joke until the final boss. Plus the level design in the areas after Anor Londo mega blow, save for the New Londo Ruins which is ok. I really do not like the second half of Dark Souls because the quality just sucks compared to the extremely strong first-half.

@EvilLucario That is exciting to hear O&S is a fun fight. Very disheartening to hear the game drops off afterword. One of the best games I've played in a long time if not ever so far.

Don't forget about the Painted World and the DLC areas. Those are all pretty cool, and usually after Anor Londo for most people.
I agree New Londo is the only good Lord Soul area though. Dukes Archives isn't that bad either. But Tomb of the Giants and Lost Izalith suck some serious ass.

@Dezzy I really liked the painted world. Those fat hollows that caused toxic I didn't care for but the phalanx was a cool enemy. I farmed the phalanx for awhile and fear I may have over leveled.

@NESlover85

Painted World is probably my favourite area in the game. I love its design and the supporting lore and story concept.

Apparently it was one of the first areas they made when designing the game to demonstrate the kind of open and interconnected map layouts they were going with. So the reason it ended up being hidden inside a painting was that they'd designed it to be a self-contained area, and couldn't find any other way to make it fit into the larger world. Hence needing a quirky lore explanation for how it could exist separately.

@Dezzy I kind of feel bad for killing the lady at the end of the level. She didn't attack me first but I figured there has to be a boss. She was a really easy boss though.

@NESlover85

Lol I just attacked her without thinking on my first playthrough. Boss-looking creature in boss-arena-looking place -> attack.

Just tried to take on O&S for the first time. Killed Orenstein fairly quickly with Solaire's help. Solaire died shortly after. Got Smough's health down to 2 or 3 hits and I got greedy and he smooshed me under his hammer. I am still shaking from the adrenaline!

Update: I did it! Second try and I beat them!!!!

@NESlover85 Congrats! Once you beat Ornstein and Smough, you can beat the rest of the game.

I just finished the game on a new character. This time on these NG+ cycles, I'm gonna try for a hybrid of Pyromancy and a dragon greatsword. This is gonna be fun lol.

Huh? Unless you're using motion controls, which is entirely optional, I have no idea what difference you expect....
