I really wanted to get it to work because I wanted some help fighting Sif, little did I know 2 whole Crystal soulmass shots would kill him...lol. Almost wanna start over with a melee character because this magic stuff is making it to easy
Yeah, we've been reloading characters, too. That was one of the only ways we were able to see signs one night (though summoning failed).
Melee is definitely a challenge, especially in NG+. I have just the Four Kings before I can challenge Gwyn, and they obliterate me; not enough damage output this time around, so I get swarmed.
