Dark Souls II is so difficult that it should come with a how-to guide.

The game, which was released on Tuesday, trips up even the most experienced gamers, which is why we've rounded up some of the best tips and tricks to help you along the way.

Be very choosy when it comes to your tools, notes Digital Trends.

It's not about buying the most powerful tool, it's about finding the one that best suits your character. And better weapons give you bonuses for your stars. You'll at least be on the right track if your weapon matches your stats.

If you're stuck, it means you have probably forgotten something. Levers and switches can be easy to miss, so keep an eye out for them. They usually end up being very important. Your best bet is to look through every little detail.

No-Man's Wharf, for example, is very dark, and you'll also face tough enemies. One of the buildings has a lever at the top that will get you passage into a new zone.

According to Polygon, when you enter Majula you'll want to take notice of a few characters. The merchant will be in the first house on the left, and you'll want to keep checking in with him—his list of weapons and armor will grow. A feline also has things for sale, such as a ring that lessens the damage from falling.

There's a sewer passage below Majula with an easy-to-miss chord on the wall. This will open a door that leads to Heide's Tower of Flame.

As for what covenants you can join, for Brotherhood of Blood, you'll want to talk to Titchy Gren in Undead Purgatory while you have Token of Spite, according to Segment Next. He'll be next to the bonfire, and all you have to do is say "yes" to his dialogue.

Most importantly: accept the fact that your character will die many times.
