I didn't die, but I could have also been just lucky, because I wasn't a very good Souls player at that point. I don't remember exactly what I did to get past it, but it was a bit nerve wracking. This time wasn't really any big deal, since I'm kind of used to that sort of thing. It's a really cool area though. I usually don't like places with limited visibility (frigid outskirts ugh), but that forest was cool.

Really annoying that you can't lock on to those jerks though. Makes fighting them with a rapier pretty irritating.

Also I beat all the bosses and DLC today. I think I liked the Ivory King the most, but I'm a sucker for snow-themed levels (see Phendrana Drifts from Metroid Prime). The Frigid Outskirts was obnoxious, but I just summoned NPCs. I didn't feel like soloing those cats and dealing with those fucking reindeer. This entire DLC reminds me of what the broken archstone in Demon's Souls could've been, so it's nice to actually see this sort of area. It really felt like a large castle that I was exploring, which I enjoyed. I have to admit, Anor Londo was awesome when you first encounter it, but that sense of awe didn't carry throughout. I think Miyazaki even said this himself. It felt like a giant empty space, and in terms of level design, I feel like Anor Londo could've been more like Eleum Loyce. (I feel like I always shitting on Dark Souls 1, but I swear I like that game as much if not more).

The DLC for Dark Souls 2 was really well done. The shortcuts and bonfire locations felt like classic Souls, and it really feels like From listened to their fans. The bosses were also a lot more interesting, except for the Gank Squad. I didn't mind them, but I would not want to solo that fight. Smelter demon is even worse. What a garbage fight lol. I feel like the paths to get to these bosses was also just exceptionally difficult (Smelter, Sir Alonne, Gank Squad). Elana was kind of annoying mostly because of Velstadt but she wasn't too bad this time around. Sinh also wasn't very hard, but a great fight nonetheless. Fume Knight didn't give me any trouble, but that's because I fought him so much before and died so frequently that I subconsciously knew his moveset this time around. Alonne was hard. Ivory King wasn't hard but I loved his fight, and Aava wasn't too bad. The other two cats were ok but I don't think I'd do well if I soloed them without NPCs. I know I could do it, but I just don't have the patience anymore.

Anyways, I'm mostly done with replaying the Souls games. I have a few bosses left of Bloodborne, but eh. I don't want to get burnt out from these games before Dark Souls 3 comes out. But I would like to check out Salt & Sanctuary at some point.

Overall:

Bloodborne > Dark Souls = Demon's Souls > Dark Souls 2, but they all rule.
