I've searched this place high and low, released the water, opened the gate to drake valley. Just got wasted by the four kings...didn't even see what hit me. Still, no bonfire...I'm dreading having to inch my way through there for the 10th time all the way from firelink shrine. How do I get to the bonfire?
Nope, there is no bonfire in there, either have to use the bonfire in darkroot basin and trek through the Drakes everytime, or Firelink. For the four kings, mobility isn't required, a tip, if you are melee or even if you aren't, stick close to them, their arms do much much less damage than getting hit by that weapon, you need poise for the fight, put on full havels, two hand your weapon and let loose, preferably a fire weapon if you have one, if you use magic, the poise from havels helps.
I love when people yell "throw it!" when a player scoops up a ground ball in baseball, like the player isn't aware of the fact they need to throw it.
Ah...I thought the kings were bonus for Frampt. Alright I'll try running through then. 2 questions...
1- Can you tell me which bosses I need to find & kill for Frampt?
2- What are the major items you find down here (aside from souls of warriors, etc...)? Found the composite bow, nothing else really. Are there a lot of new areas that open up and new items to be found after you drain the water?
From the elevator from Firelink Shrine, run across the two bridges until you get to the first ghost. From there, do not go up the stairs. Instead run to the opposite side from where you entered and drop down (look for a guy in a pot if your having trouble finding it). You should be in the waterlogged courtyard where you would be after fighting the first soulmass.
Here watch this video. Toward the end, it will show the shortcut. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBXYBbNEjdQ&feature=channel_video_title
