    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.

    Did Yuria of Londor appear after he died?
