I've taken down the first boss, The Last Giant and got the Soldier Key and now I want to head to Heides Tower of Flame but I'm pretty sure I'm missing an important item to open the gate at the bottom of the stairs next to the Cat's house in Majula.
There's a switch on the wall next to the gate in the sewer. Easily missable. It's on the left of the gate up high. --- whythefat "DDR, I notice your karma is 567. That 5+6+7= 18. 18 plus your IQ is 19. There were 19 hijackers on 911. You are a terrorist."
Same thing on the way back, too. There is a chain on the opposite side for when you want to return. I actually can believe people missed it because it blends in with the wall. --- XBL- cheezedadada PSN- cheezedadadada PC, Xbox One, PS4 and handhelds. Yay for options.
