to date i havent dabbled in multiplayer just been going thru the quest and leveling up. I do not have either of the DLCs and don't plan on upgrading until the direct x 11 version comes out.
i guess my question is is my next task to defeat the boss at draeglic castle? can't really find any other place to go or wonder around at..... i want to get a interest again perhaps try some multi player action....just never dabbled with that.
one question about the direct x11 upgrade do u keep ur progress and just continue on? or do u start over? i was about to buy the DLCs but don't see the point and want to just upgrade all at once...but not if i have to start over from scratch
side note currently playing with the black knight great sword want to try to acquire either the bluemoon great sword or the moonlight great sword either worth going after... i haven't seen benhart the jugo since i first met him as i know this is required for the bluemoon sword to complete all the fights or something...
sorry for the rambling
After the twin dragonriders there's a bonfire. If you go left there's an elevator that doesn't move, a locked door, and a ladder. Go up the ladder, and there will be a room with stone knights and a golem that, once activated, will turn the elevator on. You can't go back the way you came so if you push on you'll eventually come back to the bonfire. Up the elevator is a room with some chests. One of the chests has a key for the locked door in the elevator room. Go through the door and the Mirror Knight is at the end of the hallway. Then it's on to the Shrine of Amana.
For the DX11 upgrade, as far as I'm aware your progress from the DX9 version doesn't carry over. Did you talk to Benhart after opening the door that Rosabeth was blocking? Once you talk to him there, he'll be summonable in Brightstone Cove to help fight the Prowling Magus. Then he'll be summonable for the Mirror Knight fight. Then you'll find him sitting in front of the Giant memory after the Pursuer arena in the Forest of Fallen Giants. The last place you'll find him is in the Memory of Orro. You have to summon him three times without him dying for him to give you his armor and sword.
