I enjoy doing this and i have collected so many ember pieces and ember rods. It is called killing the magma boss. OK let me explain. Before you start calling me a non or bad, ill just say it is very enjoyable and that it is very competitive. There are at least 1 or 2 superior people and lots of strong and tarantula as well. It ACTUALLY requires skill ( not really but getting there the quickest with aote basically decides who wins). It is very enjoyable when you outdamage people with better armour and swords because a few hits more basically means you have won.
