Jeff is going to an event in NYC at which he is speaking or something before PAX. So he is in fact in Brooklyn.

Sadly, my guess (with no insight whatsoever) is that Mr. Left Picture did not focus test well enough. Viewers liked Robb/Jon more and when it came time for Season 4 they evaluated who they could get to be the new heartthrob for the ladies and Daario made sense to get a do-over. I guess no one likes Fabio anymore. =(
I ended up crafting a upgrading a bow SPECIFICALLY for Shrine of Amana. Nothing else was nearly as difficult.
When I started playing DS2, I thought that the game must be so much easier as I was 1 shotting bosses left and right without preparing or any foreknowledge. The first 4 bosses I tried all fell immediately. Then I met this guy: Lost Sinner (also it isn't a guy!) . Who worked me over right good. Since then there have been some easy bosses (Covetous Demon), and more than a couple hard ones (WTF SMELTER DEMON, RAAAAAGGGEEEEEEEEEEEE).
IMO, anyone saying this is too easy needs to keep going. It gets quite a bit harder.
