Low, what console get it for?
this game is sick as fuck, it's difficulty is at times unbelievable, the bosses are ridiculous and the co op is great, and not accessed until after beating the taurus demon, talk to a knight afterwards and he'll give you the stone.

This game isn't as hard as I thought it was going to be. The second I got the drake sword which was about 3hrs into the game, everything got too easy lol
These are the bosses i've slain.
Lol i got invaded. Luckily had 2 others with me and the intruder got beat into obliteration. got all his stuff, that faggot.
I now Know why this game is being compared to Skyrim, in terms of dragons, there are like 6 different types of dragons in DS.
Winter is coming
I have it on 360 doing a pure melee character started off as bandit ill post my build later when i have time im at soul level 45 very addictive game!
This has some of the best, funnest multiplayer in a game!
I'm level 48, have the bonfire warp item and have now slain these demons:
Chaos Witch Quelaag
Dragon Slayer Ornstein / Executioner Smough
Alot bigger and better than Demons Souls.
One of the most difficult games ever, glad 360 users get to play this game now.
Winter is coming
this is my build (off the top of my head)
Think I kept the other stats the same my starting class was a bandit im using the Eastern armor, Dark knight sowrd, Crystal shield and havels ring and the wolf ring.
I just went back to the ‘undead asylum’ to kill the ‘stray demon 2’ or whatever its called.
My fav boss battle so far was the Gaping Dragon my least was the hydra demon (because i kept falling off the edge of the water when i got down to the last head so annoying).
Ether what class are you and how have you built your character?
Im tempted to start over and use magic but ill have to look into how it works i currently have no idea lol.
