one more tip go purchase the pharros stone from the old merchant hag by the bonfire by the first boss and spend 10k souls with her so you can get the ring she gives as it gives more souls.Also use the pharros stone on the wall under the ballista room to get a ring that restores your stamina rather quickly,,very useful especially since its available early.
cloranthy ring (spelling?) is REALLY useful, forget where it is though, i think in the first place where you need to use a pharros lockstone
The Chloranthy Ring(new spelling) is also in the ballista trap room in the Forest of Fallen Giants; as a result that room is fairly significant for most characters. --- "I'd rather betray the world than let the world betray me." -Cao Cao
Add in that if you spend 10k souls on Melentia, the FoG vendor, she'll give you a +1 Silver Serpent Ring. --- Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. But today is a gift, that is why it is called the 'Present' - Master Oogway GT: l 3DJutsu l (both lowercase 'L')
