I unwisely continue to divide my time between my two characters.
Knight: I made it past the winged creatures on the Road of Sacrifices to the next bonfire where the two Blue Sentinel people were chilling out. I didn’t go much further, but I love that the next enemy is basically trying to wield trees as weapons, and it’s almost as awkward as it sounds. Unless they get you, in which case it’s surprisingly effective. I wonder if I can wield a tree as a weapon later in the game?
Pyromancer: I found the cell again finally so I could use my cell key! Woohoo! Only he wants me to give a gift to a lady, but I already have that lady’s bones in my inventory. Hmmm, I think I’m going to have to disappoint this guy. Also, I couldn’t resist going after the mimic one more time. And I finally got him. It’s funny that they made him the smartest enemy in the game. I was trying to fire arrows at him since he can’t climb ladders, but he was always moving around trying to get to a place where I couldn’t get him with the bow. Very smart. But I still got him. The loot he dropped was a variation of the weapon I started the game with, but I really like it. So much so, I stopped using the Raw Lucerne+2 and the Uchigatana+2, at least for now. I’m enjoying this dark axe.
It’s a shame I died to those two witch ladies I posted above, and then subsequently died again. I could have used those souls to level up a couple more times.
