    Thanks for all the info @Desmond David

    I finally bought the tower key, so got the ring .
    Managed to kill that Undead knight in the basement by simply dodging, even I dunno how I did that.
    Right now Im about to fight crystal sage. But I worry that I might have missed some stuff along the way. Like I havent fought those big crabs. I didnt discover the area thoroughly where those bird-beasts are.
    Also, Im kinda confused how should I spend my souls for level ups right now. I feel like I need vitality for the equip load, as I cant equip 2nd weapon without crossing soft load limit. Then I also wonder if I need more dex for some fast weapons (its 14 right now )

    Oh 1 more thing. I took in a random pilgrim and he gave me some free level ups. And when I returned after few areas, he is dead. Did I do something wrong ? And, my face looks ugly after using his service, how to fix the face ?

    Bird-beasts? You mean the corvians on the Road of Sacrifices? After killing the first corvian story-teller, there is a semi-naked cannibal woman who has a Cleaver with an 'A' scaling in Strength before any upgrades, its a damn good weapon if you are making a strength build. It's special action is Sharpen which adds a small life-steal for the duration of the effect.

    The giant crabs are not worth fighting IMO except for the souls. Unless you are transitioning to Pyromancer build since if you kill all the giant Crabs they drop the Great Swamp ring which boosts Pyromancies. Pyromancers already start with this ring, so its not useful for them.

    For the Crystal sage you can summon Eygon of Carim to help you if you rescued Irina of Carim from the tomb in the sewers in the Undead Settlement.

    Note that straight swords swing faster than katanas. If you have more strength than dex, it would make more sense to infuse a heavy gem in a straight sword and scale its damage with strength. Also remember that upgrading weapons is cheaper than levelling up your character. Therefore, prioritize upgrading weapons over levelling up your character.

    As for levelling vitality, like I said, just level enough that your equip load does not cross 70%. You generally don't need to equip more than one weapon at a time, except perhaps the bow which itself is very situational. So you can save a lot of burden if you only equip what you actually need.

    That's Yoel of Londor. I'd suggest you don't worry about him now, until perhaps your next playthrough. It is scripted that if you kill two bosses (I think) after hiring him, he will die. You can't do anything about that. BTW, how many times did he level you up for free?

    As for your face, there is nothing you can do about that now, sorry. There is a ring that can make you appear human again, but if you botched Yoel's questline, then there is no way to get it until your next playthrough (New Game+). Though, the firekeeper will be able to cure it later for a very expensive amount of souls after you give her the Firekeeper's soul. But its not worth it because you would rather level yourself up than worry about how your look.

    Anri's Straight Sword is so f***ing good. I killed Dancer in one attempt with no summons.

    Im liking the hollow slayer moveset a lot. Its basically halfway between a greatsword and a straight sword. Fast and has hyper armor frames... Running 27/40 build, and sacred oath for buffing

    I think Drakeblood Greatsword is also like that. Swings pretty fast for a greatsword. Hollowslayer GS does bonus damage against hollow/dark enemies AFAIK.

    >Hyper armor frames
    You mean like Perseverance?

    Edit: I generally prefer buffing using carthus flame arc. It is a bit expensive, but gives a pretty good fire buff.

    AT what lvl did you kill Dancer?

    BTW, how much endurance and vitality do you guys have around lvl 50-60 ?

    Havent got the drakeblood GS yet, it can be buffed using regular titanite, and can be buffed. so should be pretty good. I always buff with lightning, its a thing I have going on since DS1.

    I generally don't go above 10 vitality, except in my Knight build, where I stacked 37 so far. Therefore, I can equip the full Catarina set plus Executioners Greatsword and still be only encumbered around 68%

    I killed Dancer around level 85 I think on my luck build. I had around 50 luck at the time. However, in general I have killed Dancer many times but mostly with summons or in multiple attempts.

    Unlike the Claymore which hits the ground in its primary two handed attack, the Drakeblood greatsword does a vertical swinging attack and after a short windup time follows up with a upward swing.

    Also, yesterday on my Knight build. I summoned two phantoms to help me beat Dancer after dying earlier. They bugged out and couldn't enter the boss room, leaving me to fight the Dancer alone. But I managed to kill the Dancer alone while the phantoms patiently waited outside the fog wall. They got their embers and sunlight medals XD.

    This seems to be happening a lot to me, and others. Is it because of internet ?. Never faced this in DS2

    It's a weird bug. It seems a lot like connection issue since it mostly happens when you see the host sliding after being summoned. I think if the host's move animation becomes normal it should work in theory but it is still a hit and miss. I have wasted a lot of embers because of this bug.

    This bug seems most consistent at the Dragonslayer Armor fog wall.

    Edit: BTW, any of you guys started playing the DLCs?

    Better to start Ashes of Ariandel after SL 70-80. Generally after killing dancer is a good time to start.

    @Nerevarine I tried out the Hollowslayer Greatsword, it has the same moveset as the Drakeblood Greatsword but its reach much shorter than the Claymore. Was getting pwned in PvP when I was using it.

    Claymore reach is good but it was slightly slower than hollowslayer.

    Murakumo with bleed is awesome. Based on your luck, the weapon art plus 1-2 hits will trigger bleed in most enemies. Same with Exile greatsword.

    But best reach with curved swords is with Pontiff knight curved sword with its weapon art. It also does frost damage.
