Better question: how much are you spending on university vs. how much you would be making not going to university. If you are taking a lot of debt and have a decent job if you did drop out, then it might be worth taking a year off to try it out. On the other hand, if you would probably just be unemployed and playing video games most of the day, then you should probably stick with it for a bit longer.

It's not all about money though, one of the reasons I'm going is just a desire to learn more about a specific subject (physics)

Its great to have a genuine interest in a subject. Unfortunately, for a lot of people, the cost of going to school solely for what they are interested in may be too high to justify. It's one thing to take on $300,000+ in debt if you doing an MD, its another if you are doing an MA in Poli Sci.

Besides, nowadays, you can get almost all of the information you would pay to learn in a BA for free online. So the main thing you miss out on are the facilities and communication between your peers, which may or may not be important to you if you would be going just for interest's sake.

iirc, the only summoning restriction is +/- 10% of your SL.

@TranceQuina You should really consider dumping some points into vitality and picking up a few pyromancies so that you don't get completely hosed by resistances. Also, my sorc actually does use an enchanted greatsword and wears elite knight armor; its totally awesome.

@Daiphyer

You don't need a guide. If ever get stuck, just check the darksouls wiki or post on a board like here, its not rocket science.

How about horn armor?

No, I still call them AOSs, but that doesn't mean anything unless you have been playing sc and wc3 ums games for a long time. MOBA sounds dumb, but its what has stuck I guess.

@Little_Socrates: I actually had no problem enjoying the ending to P3 even though I had it spoiled. Not saying you should spoil yourself; however, Its not really what happens but how its handled that is great.

Also, the game begins to shine in its second half, so don't be discouraged if the early sections aren't as engaging.

@MetalMoog: You kill it by attacking it. Just because you can't target it, doesn't mean you can't damage it.

I suggest you do more planking.
