So I before I purchased this game, I had to prepare for myself. I hated Demon Souls and I still believe this game is for crazy people. But I really wanted to try just to see what is going on in this game. Now, I kinda see why people are liking it but man... I'm stuck and I need you guys' help to figure it out where I'm supposed to from here.
I'm in Undead Parish. I got cool knight shield, Drake's Sword(thanks to whoever wrote that message) but I have not found any cool armors yet. If I go onward, I face this headless weird looking demon thingy that shoots lightening. Since the game does not tell you where you should go, I thought I should give it a try. After about an hour, the most damage that I have done to it was about one third of his health. It did not look impossible but I thought "If I did not have Darke's Sword, this would be impossible for me." So I went to the cathedral looking building and took the elevator, went back to the beginning area(Firelink Shrine) and tried going down. Now that I leveled up a bit and have a better weapon and shield, I thought I could definitely go this way this time. Skeletons were definitely easy to kill and the giant skeletons were annoying but not impossible. But, again, I started thinking, "without the sword, I bet this is a lot harder."
So I honestly do not know where I'm supposed to go. Should go and try to kill the headless demon or do I go down and kill the skeletons?
