I was looking at weapons on a wiki and I really want a Great Scythe. It's in the Catacombs, but I'm not sure how far. I think I'll first try to kill Sif and then head there. I was killed in five seconds on my first attempt, so clearly I was doing something wrong with my shield. BTW, as per our armour discussion earlier, I had the Eagle Shield and the Stone Armour equipped in Darkroot Garden, and the forest hunter knights were hitting me and damage was definitely coming through. I switched back to my Tower Kite Shield for those fights because I don't like taking damage, even a little.
