Dark Souls Levels + Bosses Ranked

Finally finished Dark Souls, an incredible game that I totally recommend to ranyone that wants a rproper challenge. Bosses and levels are ranked in rorder of difficulty, levels don't take the boss rinto account
1Nevermore
Dreaming Neon Black


LEVELS
2Arcade Fire
Neon Bible


Sen's Fortress - this probably wouldn't be nearly as high if I hadn't started it at the point in the game when the Drake Sword becomes pretty useless, so it was filled with REALLY hard enemies and horrific traps. The bonfire took forever to get to and there were 100000 ways to die before I got to it. There are some awesome items to get here (Lightning Spear, loads of cool rings)
3The Gathering
Disclosure


New Londo Ruins - even with Artorias' Greatsword, the ghosts make this very difficult and after the ghosts, the Darkwraith Knights are even worse. It would probably be ok if there was a bonfire, but there's only so many times you can run here from Firelink Shrine before it becomes really tedious
4Thursday
War All the Time


Anor Londo - one of my favourite levels, mainly because it looks so beautiful, but it's not easy. The part when you run past the two knights with monster bows to get to a bonfire took me ages and ages and ages and ages to finish, and the rest of it has tricky enemies. Fortunately you kill that bastard Lautrec here
5Brand New
The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me


Blighttown - a real step up from the Depths; all the enemies here are tricky, it's very easy to get poisoned or to fall to your death, the swamp at the bottom is very hard to navigate and getting in or out via the moving wheel is seriously hard
6 Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend!


Lost Izalith - perhaps my least favourite level, maybe because of the giant legs a the start that take FOREVER to kill, maybe because there's another horde of fire breathing statues, maybe because the bonfires are placed very sparsely, maybe because the titanite demon is even harder than the other ones, AND respawns, and maybe because you kill Solaire here and he's awesome; all in all, not fun at all
7Agalloch
Marrow of the Spirit


Demon Ruins - so many reasons to hate this, whether it's the multitude of capra demons, the lava all over the place, the hive of fire breathing statues that are impossible to take out en masse or fact that it looks seriously intimidating. Fortunately, there's always a bonfire nearby so it could be worse
8Coheed and Cambria
The Afterman: Ascension


Depths - this is mainly so high because of the tunnels with curse frogs everywhere, getting cursed is frighteningly easy and the way out is really hard to find. Slime falling from the ceiling is bloody annoying too
9Neurosis
Through Silver in Blood


Tomb of Giants - dark, tough enemies and fatal drops all over the place, this is a serious bitch especially if you don't know where you're going, but the baby skeletons are an incredible way to get humanity
10Apart
Gray Light


The Duke's Archives - probably my favourite level in the game; quite tricky with loads of strong crystal warriors and mages, plus a garden full of crystal giants. The part when you escape from jail is one of the best in the whole game
11Where Mountains Meet
To Be Lost


Painted World of Ariamis - the weird zombies that explode with poison stuff when they die are very frustrating and the demonic birds are a pain to defeat, quite a cool place though
12Garden of Shadows
Oracle Moon


Crystal Cave - invisible paths, crystal giants and huge magic butterflies, nuff said, still an awesome area though
13Anathema
The Silent Enigma


The Great Hollow - this is the first consistantly aggravating area, mainly because falling to your death is so easy and the weird frogs can curse you
14Direwolves
Me From Myself, To Banish


The Catacombs - this got on my nerves a lot before I killed the mages that made the skeletons respawn, and even after that the wheel skeletons at the bottom are a pain
15Glassjaw
Worship and Tribute


Undead Burg - this is high mainly because it's the first proper level that you face, so it's pretty tough for noobs. The dragon on the bridge remains a problem for the rest of the game though
16Ensiferum
Ensiferum


Undead Parish - the metal boar is seriously annoying if you come here at a low level, and the knights can be a problem if they surround you but otherwise alright
17Dream Theater
Train of Thought


Lower Undead Burg - although there's no bonfire, this is a pretty easy area to rush through, poison dogs are annoying though
18Thrice
Major/Minor


Darkroot Garden - The tree people can be punishing if they catch you off your guard, and the Forest Hunters deal a lot of damage, but it's easy to kill them using a safe spot
19Cloudkicker
The Map is Not the Territory


Darkroot Basin - very few enemies here, but the crystal giants do a lot of damage
20Circle Takes the Square
Rites of Initiation


Kiln of the First Flame - Really cool, dramatic area to finish off the game with. There are only Black Knights here, and after all the trials I'd already faced, they felt like child's play
21Porcupine Tree
Deadwing


Northern Undead Asylum - Fairly punishing as a tutorial, but not too much of a challenge. On returning I was powerful enough to take out the Black Knights easily, so not a problem
22Camel
Moonmadness


Ash Lake - Awesome place, well worth getting through the Great Hollow to get to. There are very few enemies here and all of them can be avoided easily.
23Bjork
Post


BOSSES
24Atheist
Unquestionable Presence


Ornstein and Smough - hardest boss without a doubt, every mistake can lead to instant death, killing one of them at the start whilst avoiding the other is tough work and then killing the strengthened version is even worse and takes ages
25Alter Bridge
Blackbird


Chaos Witch Quelaag - I can't see how anyone could fight her without the NPC you summon; she deals serious damage and chases you so much that it's impossible to turn around and get a hit in, plus her magic attack is lethal
26The Used
The Used


Capra Demon - this wouldn't be anywhere near as hard if it was in an easier area; as it is you're in an enclosed space and have to deal with poison dogs as well, so the fight can easily end in about 5 seconds
27 The Stalactities
Dark Matters


Taurus Demon - the first serious boss you face, and not in an easy area; it took me ages and ages and ages to work out a strategy (I just threw firebombs eventually)
28Shinedown
Leave a Whisper


The Bed of Chaos - different from all the other bosses in that you don't fight it directly; you weaken it and then kill in one hit. I found it really frustrating because getting onto the root that leads to its heart was a bitch, especially when he swept me aside
29Rush
A Farewell to Kings


Gwyn - very tough and scary fast, fighting him him with light armour is a no-go, I used Iron Flesh and tanked him, worked after a few attempts
30The Prodigy
The Fat of the Land


Stray Demon - his red mist blast attack is really nasty, but if you stick close to him he's easy prey. Still took me ages to get it right
31Red Hot Chili Peppers
By the Way


Ceaseless Discharge - fighting him from a safespot is really the only way to do this, but he can still hit (and possible 1 hit KO) you if you get it wrong
32Rise Against
The Sufferer and the Witness


Nito - the skeletons in the area make this pretty tough, and his waveofdeath and bladeunderyourfeet attacks are hard to dodge, but if you stick close he's manageable
33Pink Floyd
Animals


Gaping Dragon - hits very high and has huge health, but can be dodged easily
34Nightwish
Century Child


Four Kings - I didn't find them nearly as hard as I expected; I just used heavy armour and went for a very offensive attack plan and then boom, they died on my second attempt
35Oceansize
Effloresce


Centipede Demon - very strong, and the lava-filled area is horrible, but dodging his attacks isn't a problem and he takes a while to recover after he strikes
36Lostprophets
Start Something


Seath The Scaleless - his curse breath is dangerous and he has a lot of health, but time your attacks right and he's not too bad
37Pendulum
Hold Your Colour


Iron Golem - really easy to kill, since he can't hit you if you're under his legs, surprisingly straightforward for such a hard area
38Opeth
Still Life


Bell Gargoyle - fighting two at once isn't easy, but with Solaire's help they're not too hard
39Machine Head
Unto the Locust


Demon Firesage - some powerful attacks, but easy to dodge and doesn't take long to kill, killed him on my first attempy
40Awake in Sleep
Awake in Sleep


Asylum Demon - the first boss, pretty difficult way to start the game; it takes a while to wake up to the fact that it's pretty bloody hard
41Isis
Celestial


Dark Sun Gwyndolin - his magic packs a punch, but is easy to block using arena pillars, otherwise a walkover. The area you fight him in is really cool
42Mastodon
Blood Mountain


Moonlight Butterfly - I summoned Witch Beatrice, who basically killed it for me, pretty easy
43Metallica
Master of Puppets


Great Grey Wolf Sif - seriously easy if you block enough and conserve stamina, killed him on my first attempt
44Megadeth
Rust in Peace


Pinwheel - ahahahahahaha lol, joke of a boss, killed him in 4 hits
45Frost*
Milliontown
46Children of Bodom
Follow the Reaper
47In Flames
Whoracle
48Magdalene
Sail With the Tide
49At the Gates
Terminal Spirit Disease
50Dire Straits
Making Movies
