One thing I rather dislike about this area is that the game is like: "Hey, we know this area is rough as you probably just started the game, and by now you should have a +3 weapon, and the giant Gatling gun and the hunter and the beast patients can be tough, but at least it's optional. Optional, that is, if you don't wanna do the chalice dungeons, or start much later and then having to end up do them anyway because you need the ritual blood." You can just skip it and save it for lategame, but it's a pain in the *** regardless. And accidentally killing a beast after befriending Djura feels like when you're playing with a magnifying glass, looking down, and realising that you killed 50t ants and their colony, burnt a hole in your shoe and foot, and looking up and realising you're on mercury. Bloodborne is amazing, but just this particular section seems just a tad forced.
