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 ?
