Top Ten Hardest Areas In Dark SoulsDark Souls is a hard game. So of course the levels/areas will be hard too.
Honestly I don't know why send fortress is number 2 cause I heard all the "you will die a lot! " Warnings but I don't understand why. What I got instead in sens fortress was easy as hell traps. Reallly easy enemies, and I mean really really easy. And a super easy boss. I only died 2 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 cause it really was. But above alll else which is not on this list was darkroot garden beyond the door of artorias, most of darkroot garden I really easy but beyond that door...oh god.. I call it the ganking forest for a reason. I explore this place and all of a sudden its 6 upgraded tree monsters that hit very hard and there goes hr health. Plus don't get me started on the 5 npcs that respawn, especially that guy with a spider shield and axe holy Christ that damage doe. But the worst was those damn rolling cats, first time I encountered it, it rolled me ...more
Almost gave it to Sen's Fortress, but Blighttown was just such a nightmare... I felt like I was stuck there forever, and unlike the beautiful (yet challenging) Anor Londo, all I wanted to do was LEAVE.
The lag on the PS3 is a feature. But it sucks for blighttown. Managed to break my main-weapon in there and had to get back to the firelink to repair. With no more than a stick.
What makes this area so hard? The lag! Enough said.
This is a test of patience, endurance, reflexes, and wit. There are traps EVERYWHERE, and 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.
So few bonfires...
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 you eyes peeled. But I confess that despite the difficulty of Londo itself, I absolutely love the boss, and Anor Londo remains my favorite area, because it feels like you are in an ancient yet holy city, with an enormous cathedral absolutely dominating the overlook of 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.
Good luck getting past the bosses, if you can even get to them. There's this one incredibly frustrating part where archers shoot at you while you try to traverse an extremely narrow area with no barriers to prevent you from falling to your death. If you don't have a greatbow, good luck.
This place is so big. You got hard enemies, giants near the bosses, and archers. And the hardest bosses in the game.
Best area, but very hard
The enemies here are the worst part in my opinion, especially those stupid skeleton dogs.
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 Black Knight. It was (nearly) impossible. The wheel skeletons who literally grind you and there's a blacksmith close to them. I just ran through it. Boss was easy. He just teleports. He attacked only nearly 3 times, but he hits pretty hard.
It so confusing...
First of all, ghosts. Second of all, the Four Kings, which deal a ton of damage and quickly respawn to gank you.
Ain't to bad, but you can get lost easily.
So many dinosaurs
Hate that damn hydra
Would be fine if you didn't get toxic after killing literally anything
