Yeah, would help wouldn't it.|
4 points shouldn't take long? You're around the SL40 mark I imagine by now? So that's around 10k a level?
what boss souls do you have?

I spent the fools idol soul on the soul ray spell, and the spider one is put aside for the lava bow.
So I must have Phalanx, Adjudicator, Tower knight. Oh and the red dragon soul.
Think thats it.
Well, Phalanx soul either makes a scraping spear or gives you 1500 souls
Adjudicator soul either gets you the meat cleaver, or 13000 souls
Tower knight either gives you warding spell (useful) or 1200 souls
Red dragon can only be consumed and gives you 10k souls
completely random, but you can see how you can 'jump' with souls to get a decent amount
you'll make a ton of souls in 4-2 though. All you really need is a good bow and you're off. Then you farm that for the 20k souls needed for evacuate, then it gets even quicker. Add in the ring of avarice, and you'll be tripping over souls before long
I was meaning to look up what to do with my dragon soul. Didn't want to waste it by consuming it if there was something more useful.
Scraping spear or meat cleaver likely to be any good for me?
They're not bad I guess.
Meat cleaver scales S with both str and dex and A with faith. So you probably wouldn't get the most out of it. Its also sloooow
Scraping spear, whilst scaling A with dex has a low damage output compared to other weapons. Its unique ability is that it reduces durability of the enemies armour and weapons by 10% each hit.
Bout it really
Meat cleaver isn't really my style by the sounds of it i.e. slow. If I'm that close to the enemy I want to be in and quick!
Scraping spear sounds interesting, and for the sake of 1500 souls I may give it a try.
Reckon I'll get far more use from 13000 souls than I will from the meat cleaver....
Yeah, you might as well make the spear, even if it's just for shits and giggles
And yes, you could easily take the 13k souls for the adjudicator soul. Forgot that it also could be used for the regeneration miracle, but meh, it's not that good really
Not sure how much I will use miracles. Think my faith is only about 8!
13k souls it is then!
Did you make the spear then?
Didn't get on last night unfortunately, played football. Stupid fresh air and exercise getting in the way of demon's souls!
Does it matter which spear I use? I know I def have winged spear. Not sure about any others
Not really. Can use either winged or short spear.
I didn't make it on either. Stupid decking in garden needs doing. Like that's going to get me any souls
I know right
Ok, do I need to upgrade the spear to +7 or whatever first?
Yup whack it to 7 and go see captain happy
What level are you on again? Still deciding between 3-2, 4-2 or 5-1 wasn't it?
Need to do the boss on 2-2 first. Then my options are 1-3, 2-3, 3-2, 4-2 or 5-1.
Think I will go check out world 5.
Think I need to get my strength up to 15 next as I think I can then effectively use the spear and compound bow.
Ah right. Have you attempted boss of 2-2 at all yet? Need to do that before you can make any unique weapons
Nope, I'm going to try it tonight.
Think I decided to consume the adjudicators soul and red dragons soul. So will do that and get a couple of upgrades then go for the boss.
Have you, erm, got a plan at all for the boss?
Nope. Absolutely no idea what to expect. The only good thing about this boss I suppose is that there is a nice shortcut to it!
Am I in for a treat then?
Do you want any clues at all or going in blind?

Clues or blind, death will ensue.
There's a chance. A small chance
Heh, he's gone all quiet
Sorry, work got in the way
Death always ensues when it comes to the bosses! I'm guessing I need some kind of fire resistance.
A real frustrating night tonight. Kept dying whilst trying to take the shortcut down to the boss. Obviously when I did eventually get there I died pretty much straight away, as is standard with me and boss fights!
I think I could take him with soul ray and ring of magical sharpness. But the git is so damn quick and aggressive!
Any tips, or should I call in re-enforcements?
I managed to upgrade my spear to +3 but ran out of sharpstone shards. Also out of hardstone shards.
Dragon sword +3 is a beast though!

There is a cheap way but he's cheap too lol😝....Whack on your thief ring too if you have one along with your magical ring and as you enter the fog turn immediately to your left and go on the other side of the bone so you in the corner. Now just fire away your soul ray and he shouldn't interrupt you as he sits gormless in the centre. However if you do move too far away from that corner and catch his attention, situate yourself on the opposite side of the bone after he's charged up to you. He will mostly stay on the opposite side of you as long as you stay close to the bone;on the few occasions he might come over just roll past him to the opposite side again and the bone should act as a protective barrier as he rolls. During this time feel free to fire off your soul ray repeatedly😜,it might get caught out by the bone barrier so just shuffle your position a little so you can shoot through the gaps. If you have kris blade/morrion blade on hand will help boast your soul ray.

I used cheap tactics on the adjudicator too And the vanguard!
I suck at boss fights!
I do what Kitt said but I use a bow instead on this as have no magic. The only thing is that if you spam him too much he sometimes comes round and wallops you so I tend to fire an arrow every few seconds. Takes longer but is safer
Try that dragon sword out on the skeletons in 4-1, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised
Yeah I think I'll do what Kitt said. I can't see anyway I could beat him in a fair fight!
Bloody bosses, I hate them in all games, not just DS! What I will say though, is that they are wonderfully designed and look great (scary!). Although I hate fighting them, at least it looks good when they kill me
Had a look at what bows I have. I have the long bow +3, compound long and compound short. So you reckon I should make a lava bow and a sticky bow? Just looked up sticky, and it lowers strength bonus and increases dex. Sounds right up my street!
