Just follow the arrows from the grace points in the lake area, they literally point you there. It's enormous, it should be obvious when you see it. Then you just have to start making your way up it...

Sorry to be thick but can you tell me what "it" is? Like I said, pretty sure I am heading for

 

Spoiler

the academy, but I can't find a way in from the Academy Gate Town area and the other entrance (from the north at East Raya Lucaria Gate) is locked. 

 

Is Caria Manor where I'm supposed to be going first? (This is where the arrows on the map are pointing me).

 

I've been through it and got to the boss, who killed me a couple of times.

The second main dungeon has a great shortcut I wasn't expecting. Praise the sun! The grace placement is starting to give me anxiety though, you get so many in the open world that it's really unsettling just going back to regular old Souls bonfire placement in the dungeons.


100%! Totally got used to the flask refills and Grace placement in the open world. Even doing the Castle on the Southern Peninsula, which isn’t that big, it immediately becomes noticeable.

Only an hour or two on this tonight but achieved a lot of early game stuff. Met the wolf guy shown on the loading screens and killed him and a giant sloth at the same time. Kenneth got his fort back but didn’t reward me as promised. Was tempted to off him! And found an absolute arsehole in Stormhill Evergaol who is too tough for me at the moment.

 

So now I’m back through the Imp Door near the start of the game. Question for @Alan Stockor anyone else who has rinsed that bit…

I yoinked the (excellent) talisman from the two spiders, but is there any reason to go back there and kill them? Or is it a dead end?

 

 

 

Why did you kill Blaidd? :(

To get into the academy you need a glint stone key.

He attacked me on sight! 
 

I suppose it’s possible I aggro’d him when I was fighting the big sloth?

 

Have I messed up?!

Oh damn. Yes I have. Oh well, always NG+! 


I believe there is a solution

 

Spoiler

Apparently there’s something you can do to resurrect any npcs you’ve killed (either accidentally or on purpose). You’ll have to Google it as I can’t remember what it is.

Excellent session tonight. Explored pretty much all of Stormview Castle, including the 

Spoiler

bit below where that nasty snake fuck pops out of the water. That's the same thing as what's underneath the tutorial cave that I was able to kill. This one w asn't near a grace point, though, so I just grabbed the items and ran away to the massive ladder that took me back to the castle. The huge squid-like face in the ground you find there is interesting, though, and the item you pride from its face. It's got my lore senses a-tingling.

 

After that I warped back to the RH to catch up with everyone. I met the Two Fingers. Didn't think they'd actually 

Spoiler

be two gigantic sentient fingers, ha ha! That was brilliant.

 

I spoke to the old woman thing there and there's definitely something fishy going on. I reckon the Order of Grace isn't quite as holy as it's letting on.

 

Spoke to Ofnir as well and learnt about the big bads that I need to take down, most in places I haven't even heard of yet after nearly 25 hours played.

 

After that I mopped up Limgrave stuff. Had a few goes at the CK and managed to parry him a lot, but he just hits too hard and I was getting frustrated, so I left him for another day. From there I went to explore the seaside area which I'd neglected before, and, after some horse platforming, I was able to get that 

Spoiler

item you see on the ledge but can't get to in the opening cave. That was a fantastic moment.

 

Man alive, what a game. All I want to do is play it.

Thanks. Thought I had been all over the lakes area -

 

Spoiler

from the Village of the Albinaurics to Caria Manor

Dear diary, today some weird slag in a cape appeared at my campfire and said she’d make me hench as fuck if I led her to a magic ring or whatever. Then I drew a weird shape in the dirt and this guy got me to help him beat up some giants and also some dogs. Then he told me to go home.

 

It was the best day ever.

Yassssss Margit down third try with my new bleedy bandit!  Had to put on some silly armour to stop being so squishy but me and the ol Jellyfish did a number on him! 

 

Does anyone know, is it possible to trigger bleed twice on a boss?  I could get one bleed pretty easily, but the second one never seemed to pop.

If it works like it does on you, then it needs time to build up, then does a chunk of damage based, I believe, on % of max health of the target. No reason it shouldn’t work more than once.

Had to get some better fashion than that stupid green and orange default guard chest piece!! Everyone's bloody wearing it!!  Remembered there were a pair of those greatsword mercenary type dudes near stormveil, popped a chicken foot and between them they dropped the whole set!! Loving my new look :D

Holy shit at the ammunition coming out of the castle at the end of Weeping Peninsula!!! I can’t believe the designers had the brass balls to have them actually land so you can stare at them for a while :lol:

 

Level 31 and only just come down this way somehow lol.

Here's me clumsily 'smashing' Margit, could defo do this much better, but this was satisfying, stripping huge chunks of his HP.  Only lvl 14 with +3 weapon :)  Got some good dodges in towards the end of the fight. 

 

Spoiler

 

 

PS the female character noises when getting hit are infuriating.

Just noticed I don't seem to have found a bow yet - I've got a ton of crossbows and even a Hand Ballista , but no bog-standard bow. Is there an easy place to get one near the start, as there usually is with these games, that I've missed?

You can buy a longbow from the vendor.. Thing at round table hold. 

 

Protip I noticed today.. You can press x / Square on the map to warp straight there!

Been exploring more of Stormveil tonight. Managed to open one of the doors that "does not open from this side" but I'll be fucked if I can find out how to get to the other one. 

 

This one however took me underneath Stormveil to the Crypts. You don't want to go there lol

Wait, what? I thought I was pretty thorough with Stormveil but apparently not.

Ah, ok, that does make sense, but the Rune Arcs seem much rarer in this than Humanity was in the Souls titles. I've found literally 1!

Do some coop, you get one every time you help someone beat a boss.. I've got about 50! But no idea what a great rune is, yet!

Found Zweihander! 😉 Turns out the Grafted Blade Greatsword is more Zweihander than Zweihander though. Zweihander!

I love how I know exactly where you're exploring just from this info...

 

The beaches were weird there man. All those poor souls just.. Wandering. Bleak. And amazing.
