Top Ten Hardest Areas In Dark Souls

Dark Souls is a hard game. So of course the levels/areas will be hard too.
The Top Ten
1 Blighttown

Honestly, I don't know why Sen's Fortress is number 2. I heard all the "you will die a lot!" warnings, but I don't understand why. What I got instead in Sen's Fortress was easy-as-hell traps, really easy enemies, and a super easy boss. I only died two times due to boulders, which were easy as well once I knew where I was going.

Now, Blighttown on the other hand - I don't need to explain why it was hard because it really was. But above all else (which is not on this list) was Darkroot Garden beyond the Door of Artorias. Most of Darkroot Garden is really easy, but beyond that door... oh god. I call it the ganking forest for a reason. I explored this place, and all of a sudden it's six upgraded tree monsters that hit very hard and there goes my health.

Plus, don't get me started on the five NPCs that respawn, especially that guy with a spider shield and axe - holy Christ, that damage does! But the worst was those damn rolling cats. The first time I encountered it, it rolled me over. Then, I got up only to see all my large health bar get decimated as it's eating my head off. I mean, seriously, that cat has the most damaging move in the whole game - it's BS..

2 Sens Fortress

This is a test of patience, endurance, reflexes, and wit. There are traps everywhere. What makes matters worse is that the enemies themselves are pretty tough. Good luck.

A massive gauntlet of traps and enemies that require specific timing and a large learning curve to beat.

3 Anor Londo

Anor Londo was a very interesting place. It was as difficult as it was beautiful. So, yeah, it can be very difficult if you don't keep your eyes peeled. But I confess that despite the difficulty of Anor Londo itself, I absolutely love the boss, and it remains my favorite area. It feels like you are in an ancient yet holy city, with an enormous cathedral absolutely dominating the overlook of Anor Londo. It kind of reminds me of the journey to Hyrule Castle in A Link to the Past, if that makes sense. But do be careful. It is undoubtedly the hardest area in Dark Souls.

4 Tomb Of The Giants

The enemies here are the worst part in my opinion, especially those stupid skeleton dogs.

5 The Catacombs

I think it should be completed in the beginning (Lautrec dialogue, easy boss). So, I completed it after Capra. Skeletons die in five hits, but that's easy. The final area is a nightmare. One time a skeleton fell to a Black Knight. It was (nearly) impossible. The wheel skeletons literally grind you, and there's a blacksmith close to them. I just ran through it. The boss was easy. He just teleports. He attacked only nearly 3 times, but he hits pretty hard.

6 The Duke's Archives
7 New Londo Ruins

First of all, ghosts. Second of all, the Four Kings deal a ton of damage and quickly respawn to gank you.

8 Depths

Ain't too bad, but you can get lost easily.

9 Demons Ruins
10 Lost Izalith
The Contenders
11 Undead Parish
12 Darkroot Garden/Basin
13 Painted World Of Ariamis

Would be fine if you didn't get toxic after killing literally anything.

14 Frigid Outskirts (Dark Souls 2)
15 Farron Keep
16 Ash Lake
17 Lower Undead Burg
