I managed to snag the Drake's Sword. Thanks Vamsi for the tip. Also, managed to slay the Steel boar, 2 Black Knights and 1 Heavy Knight in the Undead Parish and Burg. I'm a bit lost in the world progression out here. I keep venturing into new areas, but not sure which one is right for me, in terms of difficulty I mean. Demon's Souls was more clear. You had certain set of worlds withing which were different areas and the progression was easier, but not this.
