Okay so basically I started in the Undead Ber and killed the Taurus Demon. Moved onto the Undead Parish and got the drake sword and killed the Belfry Gargoyles. Moved onto the Darkroot Garden and killed the Moonlight Butterfly then went to the Lower Undead Berg and killed the Capra Demon as well as the Gaping Dragon in the Depths. Just finished killing the Stray Demon (Asylum Demon 2.0). As far as the mini-bosses go, i've killed the Black Knights, Armored Boar, Titanite Demon, Havel the Rock, The Butchers, Big Ass Rat, Red Dragon, and the Hydra. I'm just trying to get my bearings straight and figure out where to head next. I tried going to the catacombs but the skeletons kept reviving and were a huge pain in the ass. Valley of Drakes is still too hard for me as I don't deal enough damage, and Blighttown just sounds like a damn nightmare but unfortunately it sounds like my next stop. Anybody have any ideas or am I bound to head into the frame rate hell.
tl;dr - afraid to go into blighttown.
