Great ideas, robsthedon! I plan to turn Anor Londo dark before NG+ so that's perfect. And thanks for the advice on Kalameet, wouldn't have thought of that.
I spent the other day gravelording Oolacile Township. I brought 25 Eyes of Death, and sadly 20+ times I was immediately invaded by a good old fashioned red phantom. 3 other times I was invaded by a blue spirit of vengeance (lost all 3, doh). Several other times I was invaded by both red and blue phantoms which was a great time. Miraculously I beat both phantoms once, but predictably lost quickly and brutally the other times. Gravelording is sort of my introduction to PvP in Dark Souls as I have not done any invading myself previously. I realize this is probably not wise, but I'm a fan of trial by fire haha
I should probably post this in another thread but my big problem with PvP is backstabs. I die 9 of 10 times by a teleport backstab where the guy is in front of me, and just in a flash just appears behind me in a backstab animation. I try using curved swords to prevent it--with some success recently, but ultimatley they always get me on it eventually. Usually after I've whittled their health down to next-to-nothing. More frustrating: I've never once successfully backstabbed my opponent despite being in position, not blocking, and tapping R1. I affect backstab in PvE all day long, but apparently there's something about PvP I haven't figured out..
Chemistry is the study of change. Well, that's all of life, right?
It's the constant, the cycle. It's solution, dissolution. Over and over and over.
Growth, then decay, then transformation. It is fascinating, really.
