How do you make Dark Souls II easier?

I bought a copy of Dark Souls II a year ago for the PS3 that I barely even touched. I hear that Dark Souls II has VERY unforgiving difficulty, but it looks like a lot of fun although I'm not very sure if it's the game for me. You see, I have a tendency to get VERY frustrated with hard games like that.... show more I bought a copy of Dark Souls II a year ago for the PS3 that I barely even touched. I hear that Dark Souls II has VERY unforgiving difficulty, but it looks like a lot of fun although I'm not very sure if it's the game for me. You see, I have a tendency to get VERY frustrated with hard games like that. Don't get me started with Ragnarok Odyssey Ace! That game had me cussing out my TV, although I had fun with it. It's one of my favorites. I want to have fun with Dark Souls II as well. I'm fully aware that there is no easy mode in that game. Can somebody give me tips on how to properly play Dark Souls II so that it's not so hard?
