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

What makes this area so hard? The lag! Enough said.

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.

2 Anor Londo

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. - ilovelife

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.

In ds3 it's pretty easy

3 Sens Fortress

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.

4 Tomb Of The Giants

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

It's a really dark place. howevef you can use magic to make it 10 times easier - ilovelife

5 Depths

Ain't to bad, but you can get lost easily. - ilovelife

6 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 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.

Another place you can get lost at. although the boss is super essy and there is a skip. - ilovelife

7 Demons Ruins

So many bosses. enough said - ilovelife

8 Lost Izalith

So many dinosaurs - ilovelife

9 New Londo Ruins

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