Whoah, tell us more! How did you beat the gargoyles? Did you do much differently from a normal run-through? Have you a plan? How do you plan on defeating the Four Kings? Are you able to hold a shield without getting crushed at the first blow?

This is me too, though I favour a shield and sword. Magic? P'shaw! Don't bother with all the stat-based shenanigans for now - my usual style is to switch weapons when I find one that deals appreciably more damage than the one I'm wielding. And I barely look at the stats - it's all done on a visual damage-type model

Endurance is most important here; strength only if you see a particularly impressive weapon you'd like that has a strength requirement.

Have fun!

Also, don't be afraid to summon people. I was reluctant to do that at times (I actually forgot to pick up the summoning gear from Solaire too) and I struggled to the point of frustration at times.
