I am pretty slow so who knows how many hours I will spend on it before finishing. I managed to beat all the bosses in Limgrave, now I am slowly exploring Caelid. I noticed that sometimes for me its just easier to try beating a boss naked so I dodge quicker haha, it helped with Bell Bearing Hunter and Crucible Knight.
I think I will give up on Caelid for now though, its a nightmare. That Putrid Avatar isn't that hard, its scarlet rot and limited area that is a bitch. I tried to lure it a bit away from those cliffs but nooo, he doesn't follow me while those huge dogs do it for miles and miles. Such bullshit.
