        If you go to Yotobi's gameplay of DS3 (it's in italian), sometime after defeating Aldritch he sits at his bonfire in the arena, and right after that a fireball hits him. That's how annoying these ****heads are

          I'm convinced that the summoning rules are different for this area. There are far more summons and it's feels like everyone I'm summoned against has a ocean of health here. Realistically it's because of the "arena" that's nearby but god damn.

            there is actually a difference between a deacon and a devout, a deacon is standard, only firing fireballs every so often, but much rather interested in poking you with his candle, a devout on the other hand is/are ganky pieces of sh*t that will spam gank you with fireballs like your pinned down on a war zone with 4 M16's on you

              For anyone wondering which is the fastest farming method, these are some quick test results. Each type of run was performed 10 times, with a melee weapon and a warp back to the bonfire. YMMV, but here's the data I got: Aldrich Bonfire, first 3 only: 32-33 seconds/run, 10.8 seconds/enemy (very consistent) Aldrich Bonfire, first 3 + 5 upstairs: 60-70 seconds/run, 8.1 seconds/enemy (inconsistent, some deaths) Pontiff Sulyvahn Bonfire: 90-100 seconds/run, 10.6 seconds/enemy (somewhat consistent) Water Reserve Bonfire: 100-105 seconds/run, 11.4 seconds/enemy (consistent) TLDR; Aldrich bonfire w/ all 8 Devout is the fastest, but it's somewhat difficult and you may die sometimes. All other methods are roughly the same, so go by personal preference!

                I’m trying to get human dregs, I have the gold ring and I’m crushing coins and they’re not dropping a single thing. Help

                  4 Devout of the Deep can be found just outside the Deacons Boss gate. Others are scattered in and around the Cathedral.
