Well, if thats too vague for you, then why don't you check out the video link that's up under it?

"Oh no its too vague" dumbass, there is only one area with mushroom people in the Darkroot Garden

It seems to be another person just giving a bad reputation to this wiki. Honestly I haven’t run into a single problem with it in over 3 playthroughs.

First area is before Alvina with all the scrub defenders.

2nd area is the one with the mushrooms, rolling cat trio, and Sif (who is a good boy).

Youre a bit of a spastic aint ya?

Maybe if that was all the post said that would be a problem.

"(second area; located pass Alvina) in a small pool guarded by Large Mushroom People."

I suppose it could have said "Alvina the cat", provided a link to the character's location and description, or have been more specific about what direction someone is starting from in the description so that a new player would need to know very little to make use of the information.

Sometimes too much direction can be hard to remember though, so I can understand trying to make a balance that works.

The numbers between this and the Magic upgrade path are confusing to me. If you invest solely in Intelligence, with minimum requirements for a weapon of choice, is it more effective to do Enchanted weapons or Magic weapons?

In general, I'd say for pure INT builds, Enchanted will give you more bang for your buck. Taking a Magic Shortsword+10 and Enchanted Shortsword+5 as an example, the Magic has a base damage of 147/157 while the Enchanted only has 141/143. Seems worse, huh? Well the scaling is the kicker here. The Magic has B scaling for INT (around 87%) while the Enchanted has A scaling (around 130%). At 50 INT, the Magic will give you scaling damage around +111 and the Enchanted will be around +149. The extra 38 scaling damage tends to make up for the 20 less base damage as long as your DEX and STR are low and you aren't missing out on more than a few points of physical scaling damage since the Magic has slightly higher physical scaling. Enchanted weapons are pretty niche and really only work for pure INT builds for this reason. Hope that helps.

Magic has better base damage but Enchanted has better scaling. If you're sticking to 30-40 Int then there's not much difference, but once you go to 50-60 Int+ Enchanted is better. Magic will generally be better around 30 and below.

Another small advantage with enchanted is that you can get the ember pretty early, and should be guaranteed at least one blue chunk from the BKH in darkroot. And if lucky with the RNG, more blue chunks from the crystal golems by the hydra lake.

This would allow you to ascend at least one weapon to enchanted, provided you farmed green shards from the depths or blight town.

A dedicated Int build player could, in theory, get this done before ringing a single bell...

Exactly what I do before even klong a single boss

I pulled off a +4 Enchanted Claymore and I only killed Capra Demon. Technically if you didn't want to even do that, you could farm Blighttown leeches instead of Depths slimes, but that's too much work for me. Still, it's possible to get +4 Enchanted before your first boss (discounting Asylum Demon)
By Anonymous
Exactly what I do.

Crimson Set
Leeches farm
Great Hollow 2 blue chunks
Baldur Side Sword
Golems Farm
+ 4 enchanted BSS
Start the game

i'm not even an INT-guy but seeing Rickert being happy for once is totally worth the trip to this ember.
