Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition Tips

Roasting the armored boar
In the first area of the game shortly after you may or may not have been toasted by the red drake you will encounter a giant boar covered in metal armor. Walk too far out and he will charge and he hits very hard. Take out the first soldier you see then creep out look to the right and take out the second one holding the spear. Hug the right wall and walk towards the stairs, doing so will not attract the boar's attention. Right before the stairs you will see a patch of ground that is on fire. Hold up your shield and walk right towards it and stop just before you would step in and burn to death. The giant boar will charge and be stopped by your shield (may depend on your shields stability lvl so use one that is at least mid 50's). If you placed your character properly the boar will be standing right over the flame and he is too stupid to move off of it and will take considerable damage. Rinse and repeat if you have to and he will fall. Congratulations once he is gone he does not respawn until NG+.
