It took me 50 hours of exploring, farming, fighting, dying, dying and dying but I have finally completed Dark Souls. I figured out how to beat the Bed of Chaos and then decided to warp around killing things for PS3 trophies. Griggs of Vinheim was first, I needed the Hush spell to complete the “Wisdom of a Sage” Trophy. He was pretty harmless.
Next a quick warp to Anor Londo to fight Gwyndolin, the effeminate son of Lord Gwyn. Another very easy fight and he was sent packing.
Lastly a warp back to Firelink where I fed the final lord souls to the vessel and walked into the Kiln of the First Flame. Having never seen this, I wasn’t sure how hard it would be. Not terribly, my crystal soul masses easily took down the knights and Gwyn was waiting for me.
A few Crystal Homing Soul Masses and some Crystal Soul Spears and Gwyn was finally dead leaving the final bonfire for me to light. I chose to light it, earning the Link the Fire ending to the game.
I began NG+ and killed the Asylum Demon in two shots with Crystal Soul Spears. I truly doubt I’ll be going through it again. Time to move on to one of the other 24 games I’m waiting to play.
Thanks for staying with me.
