I'm getting past the middle point of the game now, and it's honestly getting boring. I have no idea where to go after killing Rom, or how to get there. I always had a general idea of what I should do and where I should go in the Dark Souls games. But now I'm just wandering around, utterly lost for hours on end. My character is also, I think, just a bad build. I focused on skill and weapons that scale best off of it, and my damage dealing capability is just plain puny.
Apparently a weapon called Chikage is best suited for me, but I have to get past an optional boss called Martyr Logarius (sp?) at Cainhurst, and he just wrecks me. I even tried him with two summoned helpers and we got wiped out. (and getting two took forever) I guess I could just grind my ass off and power level, but thats just completely unappealing after the dozens and dozens of hours already invested killing the same enemies over and over again farming for vials and bullets.
I loved the previous games, but for some reason I'm just not feeling this one.
