Magic?

Can magic weapons affect them?

I think the only way is to be cursed, then you can hurt them. You can either get actually cursed by the frogs in the Depths, or you can use a Transient Curse which will inflict a temporary curse on you. You can buy those from the moss merchant in the sewer.

Can you temporary curse yourself as a block to permanent curse while in the sewers?

What does Curse do exactly? And is there a lot of ghosts I will have to deal with? Seems counter-productive to get cursed on purpose...

lol, I don't know, haven't tried it, but I doubt it, since curse stacks it probably just kills you again.

Yeah, that is true. Just desperate to NOT get cursed again. Without the answer "be careful" lol

Curse will decrease your health by 50%, and it stacks enough for you to eventually be at 1/8'th health.

Surely curse isn't needed extensively, right? Otherwise it's something that was really badly planned....to have to go out of you way to farm souls so you can fight ghosts temporarily...

As far as I know it's only for those ghosts, but I haven't finished the game yet.

1. You can either get cursed and spend some souls on an item to cure it
2. Run past the ghosts.
3. Get temporarily cursed.

If you get lucky the Ghosts will drop the Ghost Blade. This dagger carries its own curse, and can hurt them regularly.
