So I rang the second bell and defeated the Ceaseless Discharge in the Demon Ruins. But now where do I go? I fought all the way past those Capra Demons to the big yellow fog gate at the bottom but I got some message about it being sealed by the Great Lord or somesuch. I still haven't done Andor Londo or the forest yet and I want to get back there. Is there a shortcut to the surface? Or do I seriously have to run back through Blighttown?
this game actually has some platforming, anyway its the giant wheel, get on the platform and ride to the top there will be another platform up there leading to valley of drakes and then firelink shrine if the door is unlocked.
