      If you are in Soul Form (dead). You can farm Full Moon Grass from the Fat Officials at Stonefang Tunnel... Once you have gotten the hang of this game that is... Basterd Sword+3 can deal about 100 damage 2H . They are weak against Flame Toss... So you can alternate between the damage... From the archstone run pass the miners throwing rocks go right up the elevator and then kill the official... run down the hall and slash the three dogs with either basterd sword or battle then kill the next fat official... run up the stairs and then kill the next fat man up on the rafters. After this run all the way back but also drop down below the rafters from where you killed the fat official... run to the elevators and drop to your death... game reloads and so you can reset the enemies... If you want to also kill the miners use Mail Breaker they are weak to pierce attacks.
