    I've just got my giant armour pumped to plus 5 with the fap ring and at 46 end you can get the medium roll. This enables you to take off harvel's for whatever other ring you want. In my case it's the ring of steel protection for another 50 defence across the board!

    Something else I've found out today:strength is bolstered by 50% while 2 handing. This means that if I boost my strength to 26 I can get the full 39 strength bonus. Useful for those using the fury sword and the BSS :D

    For the emperor!

    @mcmothercruncher

    Do you have any tips for doing the rare weapons and miracle trophies? These are my last two for the platinum but they also seem the hardest. Is it really just a case of farming rare weapons, making sure you meet every npc at the right time and farming for covenant items?

    I got 3 silver trophies in a second on PS All Stars just a moment ago, so the fact these two look like a combined 50-100hrs seems a bit ridiculous...

    From what the guide says, you'll need at least 2 full play thoughts to get the weapons. All the miracles can be done in one minus the miracle that needs the last bosses soul.

    Unfortunately, yes, and the meeting of npcs and wahtnot at the right time is probably the hardest bit. The rare weapons are just a case of ploughing through the game 2.5 times to get the boss souls. Or, 3.5 in my case if you accidentally make the same fucking weapon from Sif's souls twice :champ:

    Wow, ok. Better knuckle down.

    I'm trying to talk myself out of starting a new character, but really want that platinum...

    I've got no chance doing platinum, I have far too many characters on the go for it to happen. Well over 300 hours and some haven't been used for so long its very hard to tell where they are as some are bb characters. There must be a way to tell what ng you're on like demons isn't there?

    Lol, that's a bummer mate, I'm terrified I'm going to do that! I just need to make fists and the sword for the trophy but no idea which one I need to make, how the hell do you tell??? Well done on the imminent plat by the way :)

    I know I should mix and match but I love my furysword so goddamn much. Cleans through everything lately and am able to kill bosses in one try including Sif and Priscilla. It's a part of my character now, an extension rather than an accessory. But I've decided to at least use my furysword to get more titanite and upgrade some weapons to max, just to see what's good. I've a Divine Iaito, but nothing else other than that so maybe a magic weapon or a dark one for my dexterity build.

    This game! :D

    @Tuffty - it's a bloody cool weapon I have to agree. the only time I don't use it, is towards the final areas of ng, where it doesn't cut it as much, ng+ and beyond, and against fire resistant characters.

    I can tell you that if you're a dex character, a balder side sword and/or a uchi are great replacements. They may not look like much on the stat screen, but don't worry about it, and get them upgraded, and you'll soon start to see enemies drop like flies. And then just buff it for bosses

    Just dishing out justice to the Knights in Anor Londo Architect.
    The Dark Silver Tracer +5 was getting 962 backstabs and the Bandit's Knife + 14 got 882. A +15 probably quite even but still just outpaced stock by the Tracer, unless you have a buff on as Fiery mentioned.
    Now, I'd parry too, for the info, but I'm playing human and getting invaded like crazy- I need to save some flasks for just getting through ;)
    Nice one, so bandit knife isnt really too bad because if I do buff it, it will deal even more. Hmmmmmm.

    Been doing some invading around the painted world yesterday. I finding it hard to decide on weapons in PvP. I'm still pretty new to it.
    I found the claymore to be pretty sweet, mainly because any light weight people I was invading got stunlocked after one hit, and it was a case of chop, chop, chop = dead.

    But i'm having alot of trouble with people who have ultra-greatswords/giant hammers/giant axes etc.
    Plus has anyone got any tips for taking down multiple enemies?

    @Architect_z

    Upload some stuff or find a tool which slows your upload rate.
    It's all about lag advantage.
    Or build an auto lag switch, quite easy I guess.

    Yeah I'm that cynical about it by now ;)

    @quadfather I don't think I have the uchigatana even though I've seen it mentioned by players earlier than me. Must have missed it somewhere.

    My furysword is so good I think it cheated me out of the emotion of the fight with Sif. I imagine for a good few people that fight took more than their first attempt to complete and their fight was long and arduous, and only when you saw Sif limping that you felt remorse. For me, that fight as over in 2 mins, and I didn't even see him limp cause of the damage I was wielding on him as he was recovering from an attack. XD But still, I did see a video of a hard earned fight and saw it then. Poor Sif :(

    FROM could do a lot better for the character screen in their games.
    A page for each character with stats VIT 27 FAITH 34 etc and which NG++++ you're on. A checklist of beaten bosses would be good too.

    Taurus Demon - defeated
    Sif - defeated
    Ormstein - currently wanking over your twitching corpse :)

    It would be really helpful

    @Tuffty - you can get the uchi from either killing the male undead burg merchant, or buying it from Shiva after you've joined the forest covenant. Or you could just get the iaito from blighttown - it's very similar.

    the balder sword is only dropped by the sword weilding balder knights in the undead parish (and perhaps the few in sens, at the top). Crappy drop rate, but worth a punt for a bit as they're very good swords. Note that the balder knights that wield the rapier will never drop it - it's only the sword wielding knights that can.

    Yeah, I feel sorry for sif more than anything in this game. Especially the alternative cut scene after you rescue him/her in the dlc. /sniff

    Yeah, that would be very useful. I am spending 10-20 minutes each time I fire it up now, trying to work out what the hell is going on. Finally found a character that looked good with not much done, and then realised I must be on ng+, coz things were taking twice as long to drop. Except me. :)

    The big heavy stuff in pvp, either annoy them with high poise, good shield and a long spear, or, better still, two hand it in light gear and coax them into an attack. Their animation will be so slow you can slip sideways and cut away :)
    As they're probably close to one shoting you, you might as well go light and dance about anyway.

    Totally agree on the interface- it just misses some very basic bits, like an NG+ indicator as you say. Plus, unless I've missed something , if I forget whether I'm human or hollow I have to take my helm off and spin the camera around to check!

    Or you could look at the humanity counter, if it's lit up your human if it's greyed out, your dead.

    I think it's bobbins - it does 370 damage at +5, but scales D with strength and dex. I'm guessing it'll have the standard greatword moveset

    What's the most bad-ass looking weapon then? I need to compliment my badass thief character with something that looks cool. Current is black leggings, hollow armour and gargoyle helm. Looks pretty cool, but there must be better, weapon included?
