Hi, i got a challenge run (with the Dark Souls Challenge Run Generator) with "no consumable" but without "no healing", my question is i can heal only with the estus? or "no consumable" mean's "no healing"? thx in advice

I would say the Estus is a consumable. The 'no healing' applies to Bonfire rests, Sever (weapon), the Ring of Evil Eye, and Healing Miracles otherwise, so use those if in need of healing. I'm no expert, but that's how I would interpret it.

I hate how slow the Estus use. In the boss fights where I need it, it's just fast enough, after I get up, to sometimes let me heal before getting struck again. The Manus fight in particular really makes this annoyance paramount.

DS1 is a very old, very slow game, and the Remaster did nothing to fix that. Every single challenge in DS1 isn't about personal skill or twitch-based speed and reaction times; it's ALL about learning the timing of every single move in the game, and memorizing every single ridiculous ambush/trap in the game's map of cramped hallways and narrow paths.

Probably some game design choice. There are exactly 7 firekeeper souls in the game, but because you need a firekeeper to upgrade your flask you will never be able to max it out on your first playthrough. Maybe it was planned to be upgraded by using the soul.
