Learning a speedrun in Dark Souls III may seem daunting at first but there are ways of making the learning process easier. Start by doing an initial run through and making sure to do the following things:
 
*Follow the notes as accurately as you can (getting safety bonfires is fine). Don't level more than you should. Try not to lose large amounts of souls since there is no way to get them back.
 
*Make savefiles before each part that you might have trouble with. You can just copy the savefile (generally in "\Users\<YourName>\AppData\Roaming\DarkSoulsIII\<SomeCode>") into a seperate folder or use the '''[[SpeedSouls - Save Organizer]]'''.
 
*Make splits. Download a program like '''[//livesplit.org/ Livesplit]''' or '''[//www.mediafire.com/download/x6e6g8d0m5daa3q/WSplit+1.5.2.zip WSplit'''] and setup your splits. It doesn't matter how bad they are in you first run.
 
 
 
Once you have completed your first run and made savefiles practice the parts you are least confident with then try another run. When you get more confident you should stop getting safety bonfires and start doing riskier strategies.
