I just dropped Quelaag and the Ceaseless Discharge. I went into Darkroot Basin and ran up against the Hydra which destroyed me. I went into the Darkroot Garden and ran into the forest hunters and the giant wolf that did the same. Also, went and did the Undead Asylum North and got rocked by the Demon in there. I'm a level 30 Pyromancer right now and getting extremely frustrated. Once I rang that 2nd bell the difficulty level has shot through the roof. Should I grind and level up some more or just say fuck it and head into Sen's Fortress?
Thanks for the advice guys and gals!
