Thanks, I'm PVE only. Yeah, I've brought the Fire sword along have it upgraded to+3. I think I have strength up to about 14. Using the Blue wooden shield which I think has 85%. Used it to survive the first Sentinel, but damn those guys are fast. I have a mace, but don't have any hammers yet.

I'll head back in with the mace and some pine resin.

I got my strength and dex high enough to be able to use the Drangleic Shield and a Falchion asap, as they can both be obtained very early in the game. I just used a Falchion+6 until I got the MLGS and eventually the Watcher Greatsword and never felt underpowered.

For spells, I'd just use multiple scrolls of Great Heavy Soul Arrow (can buy unlimited at some point from the Sorcerer guy that ends up staying in Majula) and/or Soul Spear (can get multiple by using Ascetics at the correct bonfire, I think Bridge Approach) to start with.

Later on, it's ridiculously easy to level by just farming the Giant Lord since an Ascetic respawns in the same room he is in so I was able to level my attunement from 20 to 94 insanely fast and with 10 slots I am just using 5 scrolls of Crystal Soul Spear. Freja is very very easy to farm as well, Soul Spear pierces through her body to hit the small spiders so they go down quickly and her own patterns are very easy to read and avoid ever getting hit.

Had another run at the Ruin Sentinels. Got lucky in that the phantom dropped down and kept the other two busy after I killed the first one. Almost got them both with magic, but they got tied up in the corner and pummeled the phantom. I should have stayed on the platform.

OTH, I just killed the Pursuer with magic

Thanks. Beat them. Even though I fell off the platform.

Beat them with melee mostly, but currently using SA and GHSA for magic. What's next/better in sorcery?

Soul spear (crap in V1.00), crystal soul spear & soul geyser. you get soul spear in huntsmans copse, drop into a hut by the archers, can be farmed with ascetics. You get crystal soul spear from the NG+ soul from the dukes dear freja, ascetic works. You get soul geyser in a pool of acid in aldia's keep, don't know if an ascetic works never tried.

Can't recall if I've taken 'em on with a sorc so I dunno if they got high res, I'm gonna assuming they die within 4-6 shots.

Grab yourself 20-30 lifegems (not that many needed but you never know...).

After entering the fog shoot the one on the left once then run to the other side. Crush a lifegems for the last few steps (should stop about 5 paces from the wall) Fire off 1/2/3 shots depending on their distance. Run to the other, crush, fire, run, repeat.

Focus on 1 target til it's dead 'cause IIRC if you weaken them all down then another will join the party, so you could end up fighting 5 gargoyles, not a good idea.

If you ascetics them (should be the bonfire after the boss room) & kill them you'll get a covetous gold serpent ring+2 (IIRC that if).
