@stylon I didn't know that either! Where did you come across this info? On the NG+ you keep all your weapons, armour etc but I think the shortcuts close.

Mm Maybe it doesnt in this one. Faith affects healng but maybe not estus.
Ill test it later, just need a couple of tongues for respecs.
All key items (trsnsposing vessel, tomes, keys etc) are lost on ng and all shortcuts closed.
Armor and covenant rep are kept.
As to time spent, it gets faster, you know where everything is so you just bomb through. For shortcuts, just turn on spook and hidden body and run through. Most of my game time has been spent farming rep items, Im on the last of these now.

I did find out one new thing yesterday... probably old news to you seasoned players but it was a revelation for me. You can throw Undead Hunter Charms at mimic chests and they fall asleep!!! Once asleep you can get their loot safely and even murder them whilst they're sleeping if you feel like it. Wish I'd known that a lot sooner... I died quite a few times early on from mimic encounters and got to the point where I was terrified to go near them. Not any more

@sorethumbed: "spook and hidden body"... you mean there is a way I can become invisible and you only just mention it now!!!

@stylon AH, so that's what my co op buddy keeps doing!! I'll see if I've got some of them and test it out. BTW If you go to Firelink and go out the window at the top to go to the tower, check the tree just outside the door and you'll get an item that is great for killing invaders when you use it.
There's a stick that you get that can transform you into something else so you can hide and surprise enemies.

I mentioned putting mimics to sleep in an earlier post.
Yes - hidden body makes you invisible and spook masks the sound of your feet (and prevents fall damage). Lasts longer with the correct items equipped. Im using it right now to farm shackles off those bloody ninja dual weilding red eyed skeletons in the catacombs.

@sorethumbed: Must have missed that post about the mimics, still at least I know now. Will definitely look into those stealth spells. Think the worst regular enemies for me are the Pontiff Knights... can easily wipe me out if I time my dodges wrong. Just checked on the smartglass app and you've put in a staggering 315 hours on this game... or practically 2 weeks straight, night and day.

@crippyd: Funnily enough I picked up that seed last night from under the tree. I'd gone back to the crows so I could trade for some twinkling titanite and stumbled across it.

Done 100%. Now for a funrun. No shields, staff, starting armor and knife. See how far I can get. I'll let you know if I get past the first boss. For those who don't know, you can fire spells way past their lock distance with a set of binoculars to get the approximate aim.

Sods have nerfed the binoculars. They dont work like they did in 1 or 2. This is going to be a fun run

@sorethumbed: does the ring acheevo include getting NG+ rings too, or just the default ones? And is that pyromancy the only spell you have to farm mp items for?

@A_BabyRed_Yoshi:
To get the. Rings achievement you can collect all rings in playthrough 3 (theyre in different locations for the +1 +2 and the one +3 ring).
Basically to get all sorceries, miracles and rings you need to max all of the covenants and beat the Nameless king in playthrough 3 as one of the rings is behind him. To get the rep items, they are all farmable offline (albeit its a pain). I respecced to 99 luck, used the +2 gold ring, a maxed Crystal Sage's rapier, Mimic headpiece and a rusted coin on every loop and it still took ages. The worst being Vertebrae Shackles from those two redeyed ninja shotel wielders in the catacombs. The droprate there was abysmal.

I remember them being a bit of a challenge! It's smash the skinny guy first, I believe?

@crippyd: I always did it the other way round I think. It was always a bi..ch though. I think a few of the DS3 fights are tougher though. Im on a mage runthrough. Believe me, they really dont want you to play as a sorcerer. The enemies are faster this time round and can close on you before you get a cast off (remeber no motion whilst casting). Combined with FP (remember for other classes FP is for specials, for a sorcerer, no FP means no weapons at all!). It is WAAAYYYY tougher as a caster. Even if you are a caster, some bosses require melee only kills (greatwood etc). Pyro is the business but caster is awful.

@crippyd: dont even think theres an achievement for killing either of them There is an achievement for geting all rare weapons. As the drops are different depending on which one you kill first then that would obviously count towards it. Thanks for posting that though @crippyd. When I went back and looked at my cheevos, I found that although I 100% DS1 and now 3, I never actually FINISHED DS2 for some reason. Ill have to go back and do it now I suppose.

Well, Pinwheel is the worst boss ever... Went down to 4 swings. Whole encounter over in 20 seconds, including a 7 second sprint to get to him. The area before with all the wheel skellies?
