    Thanks Typhoid. Will need to read up on pick up locations (already noticed one that I missed).

    Am level 99 now, assume this is a reasonable level to jump into NG+? Having quite a lot of fun helping players as a Sunbro with Gwyn so don't mind levelling up a bit more. Just want to make sure I won't regret it because NG+ enemies will make mince out of my character:p
    Wow you're more than levelled enough, let me put it this way I've JUST hit level 102 and I'm half way through a NG+ playthrough. I started NG+ at level 80ish which is still, apparently, considered the higher end of things, most finish around the 70ish mark on their first time through.

    Going for a Strength/Faith build at the moment, got my Str to 41 (plan to up to 46 for Demon's Greataxe), End to 40, Dex to 21, Vit to 31, Faith at 18 (will go for at least 36 to use Sunlight blade) and Attunment to 14 (will go for 16 for 4 slots, doubt I'll need any more than that).

    It may turn into an 'Everyman/Achievement' build (where you max Str/Int/Dex/Faith to 40).

    I assume you've levelled up all your gear to at least +15 for your chosen weapon and +9 for your chosen armor?

    Also this video amused me, two heavily armoured titans of the Dark Souls world clash, who will be the winner? Watch and find out...

    If you are in the burg and go into a tower with a spiral staircase leading down... yeah, don't do that. You can go a bit to see what's at the bottom, but be prepared to run away like a little bitch.
    Yeah but, he's got a nice ring. And once you're able to hand out a reasonable amount of damage, you should defo take the fucker on...
    So am I brave or stupid?

    Heh heh, we'll have to see next session..

    Basically, dodging him is easy enough, so if you can take him out in 5 hits, it's cake. If it takes 10 or 20 hits or God forbid 30 or 40, your chances are losing are quite high, because he will probably one-shot you if he even grazes you with that crazy arse weapon of his...

    @SYS64738 I echo the comments of Dr_Mech, completed 1st at 75 completed ng+ at 130 and am now at 147 just over halfway thru ng++ had to do more than just get to Sif.

    Turns out I needed Priscillas tail dagger and the crescent axe from Patches (I always killed the gimp for his betrayal), so had to do Or & Smug 4 Lord Vessel & get Nito (tough fight when you forget to pack your Divine Uchi - respawning Skellies FTW!) to make him a vendor.

    I also needed Gwyndolin for a 2nd Soul (must have left her on ng+ as that was focussed on getting other Covenants, Darkmoon being one)

    Edit for my piss poor spelling....

    @EMarkM - Umm... Maybe :D He's a pain in the arse for new players - that is until you learn not to be scared of him. After a while he becomes like an old friend that you visit every once in a while. You know, share stories around a bonfire and all that. Not.

    If God said “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you,” to Mary - does that mean he loves bukkake?

    You just need to be able to survive 1 hit from him. Then, when you inevitably get hit because you're getting bored/cocky, you'll realise how fucking hard he actually hits, and that'll bring you round again :)

    @quadfather - Yup. I had the misfortune of being backstabbed by him, someone invaded and he jinked behind me somehow. Why couldn't his weapon come from one of the baby dragons :(

    125 I believe is the usual desired soul level in Dark Souls. At least that's what I usually see when watching people PvP or design builds.

    Although. It is fun to make a char that goes as high as it can go... My 450 mage/duellist is a very fun build who can tank with light dex weapons, or go medium with the greatsword of artorias (both with the fast roll etc). However, reaching those lofty heights requitres a lot of time; it now costs me nearly 3 million souls to level up just once, for not much gain. As C_F said, 120/130 is a good level to aim for. Use one of the many character builders online to set a path; then stick to it!

    And don't do what I do, and see a nice shiny build over there and roll yet another character to build it, while you're already half way through 3 different builds already :)

    @quadfather - And then spend the best part of the entire NG looking for a shiny side sword from the land of the Balder Knights? :lol:

    Just for shits and giggles, I'm going to go back to the balder knights in sens with my strength character, just to prove that I'll get a million of the fucking things on a character that doesn't need them :)

    @quadfather - Hahaha. I get loads when I parry the wankirks, I think the overkill bonus really does have something to do with it when you crit them buddy :p

    Well, I must have parried and backstabbed a million of the bastards when I was farming for one, and only one ever dropped. And this is with 10 humanity, gold ring, and 410 discovery rate.

    Fucking thing.

    Still, on a brighter note, all 3 different black knight weapons dropped for my strength character, 1 after the other after killing 3 knights.

    That's justice, I reckon

    Don't know if this is common knowledge yet, if not, here is an introduction to the "ravioli backstep". For the PvP crowd.
    Cheers.

    Actually have some NG experience from previously owning a vanilla copy of the game. Like quadfather, I kept rerolling new characters rather than jumping into NG+, and also avoided multiplayer almost entirely. Played with Thief & Mage builds previously but only finished the game once.

    After trading that copy in, regretted it eventually and then couldn't wait for the Prepare to Die edition:) Which I've completed pretty much completely apart from Gwyn as I want to upgrade and create as many weapons as I can before losing the blacksmith options again.

    With my current tank character I'm focusing entirely on STR/END/DEX/VIT. Want to make him more of a Faith guy in NG+ in an attempt to get the miracle trophy.

    Have to say my by far favourite weapon is the Black Knight Sword+5. Pretty effective against most enemies, but I'm getting my arse whipped every single time (bar once) in PvP. My main achilles heel is Magic defense, had quite a few guys 1-2 hit killing me with the new Dark Magic spells, or I just get backstabbed - but I got the Chrystal Ring Shield which will hopefull help a bit. Just not made for PvP really though and prefer helping people; this just never gets old and earns a fair chunk of souls each time (hence my soul level).

    I upgraded many weapons almost to the max but just need some slabs to completely max them. NG+ will sort the last stragglers out to get the remaining trophies. Also making progress towards the unique weapons, I reckon I'm about 50-75% there.

    The only armor I upgraded is the Elite Knight set, got it to +9 but now need 4 Titanite Slabs...ooookay. I've seen a lot of people in crazy combinations and I'm sure that's more effective but I like the looks of a complete set rather than mix and matching. Very tempted to jump into NG+ now but feel I should mop up a few things (whatever that may me!) before I do.
