pretty decent find... i have been doing this myself, and i can say that the 30k a minute tag isn't very true... i rounded up more enemies than the video and only get approx 6k when they all jump off, sometimes taking up to 5 minutes.

not that far, its in the Darkroot Garden, which requires access from the Undead Parish...

There will be a blacksmith that sells a seal for 20,000 souls which is required to open the door into the grinding area.

As for the bonfire, its hidden behind an illusory wall next to the entrance of the grind area.

So far it seems to be the best spot, and its semi close to the smith to reinforce your gear if you so desire....

Oh, i almost forgot, the room next to the smith has a Titanite Demon in it.. It is semi tough, but try to move counter clockwise around him and hit in the back.. I haven't tried cutting the tail yet to see if it drops anything though >.<

erm, if this is the door I'm think of that's before the Butterfly boss, the Master Key doesn't work, as I have it and it didn't open this door.

Wouldn't you know it, I'm camped right next to that gate. Great find

Btw don't join the forest covenant if you want this easy farm spot. And at first I thought that was a bad thing.. I ran back to firelink with He ring on and got over 110k souls from 2 invasions. Sadly the guy that gave me 100k ran off a cliff hahaha.. But you also get some rare shards from it so it's nice.

That sounds fun! You do get some help fighting the people when you invade for the forest covenant but not to that extent. Thankfully you can switch covenants no problem (I think, im going back to way of white soon)

Also gives a good amount of sorceries, pyromancies and miracles. So you'll need to join many if you plan on going for the achieves.

You can only have one at a time though, so join it, max it out (rank 2, requiring 20 of whatever item they use, often Humanity), and then go join the next one.

You're alive, right? Because Hollows can't summon others.

I found a easy and pretty fast way to get 20 000 souls for the seal:

If you haven't killed the red dragon, then just run up the stairs out on the bridge with the skeletons. He will fire breath them and you get 300 souls. Jump back down to the bonfire, rest and repeat.

You need to go up the elevator towards the Undead Parish. Roll out onto the broken roof when you pass it as you go up. Walk to the right onto the cliff edge. Look out and roll onto the pillar leading up to the center building section. Go up the stairs and roll onto the roof with the shiny to get an Asylum key. Go back to the tower you were just at and go all the way up. You should see a nest. Curl up like a ball there using A and wait for a cutscene.

Now you should be back at the tutorial area.

You can kill them anytime as long as you are not in the covenant while doing it, so you can talk to her, join it, join another one, then start killing again
