Wow, seems like a few of you are beasting it up right now on the game. I've made it past Haval, the gray knight with the giant tooth looking weapon at the bottom of the tower before the Taurus demon. I used the Drake Sword and constantly back stabbed him to death and he drops an awesome ring that raises your max equip burden, it helps quite a bit for me since I can use elite knight armor now and stay under half equip burden.
So what do you guys recommend I do right now? I've beaten the bell tower gargoyles, rang the bell, defeated the Capra demon and got the key to the depths, and don't know what to do now. Should I run through and kill every one I can and get a bunch of souls and level up as much as possible? Try to find my way to Blight Town and ring the next bell? Kinda hard to figure out what to do in this game since it's not that linear like Demon's Souls, but I enjoy that. Also, I'm about lvl 18 I wanna say right now, about to get on and start playing. What kind of weapons should I go for? Is there a weapon better than the Drake Sword some where along the line? I don't even know what kind of build I'm going to want to do...
Also, lucky you guys, I've never gotten invaded
I wanna fight a BP pretty bad. I'm also almost never human, how do you earn humanity? I know it can be picked up as an item and used to reverse the hollowing and then kindle your bonfires to get more Estus Flask "Charges" I guess you could call them, or drinks. But do I have to kill enough enemies with out dying to get Humanity or something?
