I kind of wish I'd held off levelling Faith as well as Str, I could do with a lot more End than I've got at the moment. I pumped Str right from the off using every soul I could lay my hands on so I could use that Butcher Knife and boost the attack damage but I was pumping Fth as well for Heal and Lightning then to get the Sunlight Blade, still not quite there at SL82!
Started my strength char last night Chose a bandit as it had the highest str/vit/end of the lot. Might not even go faith or int - might do it pure.
Just done gargoyles
