Dark Souls 2 has so many barrels, barrels over here, barrels over there. I have destroy countless of them but unlike any other rpg, there is nothing inside. Are there any items that can be found by destroying those barrels?

Yes, I believe there are some barrels in No Man's Wharf that have an item in them, rolling is the best tactic for destroying objects such as barrels, vases and the like. A tip for vases, if you angle your camera downwards you can peek inside, this is useful if you want to check if they are filled with poison or worse, acid.

Yep, that's what they call "do a barrel roll !" lol. What sort of item do they drop? – Hendry Apr 13 '14 at 19:07
I don't recall, I may be wrong though. I think they are in the house just by the Pharros erm... socket – Fred James Apr 13 '14 at 19:31
There are also many vases in the gutter with items in them, which you can see by moving the camera as the answer suggested. – Kodama Apr 13 '14 at 21:40
I think they damage weapon durability or at least striking the wall next to them during a swing does. Rolling is a good way to avoid this problem. – horatio Apr 29 '14 at 17:34
