    Black Iron armour is king against Kalameeet, use a shield like Artorias's or Havel's. Sure you'll be encumbered if you have regular END, but you'll have a nice amount of protection/poise vs. everything he can throw your way. Alternatively use the Black Knight set and a shield of medium weight, but if he hits you when you're cursed then good luck surviving it!

    My attributes might be a bit off as I started just focusing on dex for the weapons, and put whatevers left in vit/end. At the mo DEX 45 VIT30 & END also 30. I've pretty much ignored the other stats apart from attunement so I could get 5 spell slots. I dont think any pyro spells are of any use against Kalameet, apart from maybe flash sweat?

    Well, just tried a few more times and I have to say, fuck Kalameet. I admit defeat. I cant see any way of beating him without just pouring souls into vit & end which just feele cheap compared with some of the earlier boss battles. He hits too hard and his reach is too long. Pyro spells are useless and bows even more so, so melee it is. Which is where he fucks me every time. Right, which way to Manus?

    @geeza2020 If you didn't like Kalameet then Manus will annoy you yet more! With Kalameet it shouldn't be a problem to tank him. Just watch for the opening and make sure you have a lightning weapon as a 2ndary

    Manus is easily the most annoying boss. Kalameet is freaking hard though.

    OK geeza2020, try-

    Gold-hemmed set (for fire defence / light armour)
    Grass crest shield (for magic defence / stamina)
    Uchigatana+15
    Lightning Pine resin.
    Pyro: Power Within.
    Rings: Speckled Stoneplate ring // Clorathy ring

    Might give you a sweet diversity of attacks for a dex character.
    Make sure you have shed loads of estus flasks. You're gonna need em.

    starting to get some problems with hackers on the PS3. I believe that this is linked to Dom's Mega Mule. Infinite HP, infinite rolling, mad damage etc etc. I hope they all get leprosy.

    @Architect_z thanks for the tips. Using a similar set up to your suggested one I did manage to beat Kalameet last night in the end. I just wasn't rolling in the right way lol. I was so tense while fighting him that I was sprinting around the arena and jumping into his attacks like a dumbass instead of rolling away! On to Manus now, I fought him once last night, got a single hit in and was then brutally tossed around the place like a rag doll :) gonna take a few goes methinks...

    @geeza2020 - Good stuff, well played. As for Manus you're on your own, I don't have any great tips. I tried to kill him with my best player, and he just seems to have an insane amount of HP, either that or he's completley resistant to all my attacks. I dunno.

    I hate to admit it, but I did aswell. I've tried to many times to kill him myself, I think even after I summoned 2 other people, the fight took a good 20 minutes.

    Is Manus tougher than the final boss of the main game then? Crikey.

    First playthrough as a bandit. Just been lifted to the bonfire by a giant crow.

    Says in the wiki that I should have a spider shield in my initial equipment, but I don't see it. Was I supposed to pick it up somewhere?

    should have picked it up near the cell where you started off. There is a way back to the Asylum but at a low soul level it could get rather... complicated. Best not.

    You'll get a chance to pick one up in The Depths a bit later on. In the meantime you'll soon get a chance to buy a different shield: don't really need the Spider's winning feature until after The Depths when you're tackling Blighttown.

    I'd find an off hand knife impossible to recommend. The one in your let hand would just be wasted.

    Quaddy still has troubles with the bane of his life... A good side dagger isn't the parrying one, you're better off having the gold tracer in your left and the silver tracer in your right. That way you can take advantage of the increased critical damage as well as looking "cool" :cool:

    Is there any benefit to Solaire's equipment at all? I have his sword up to +10 now and it still does an almost pointless amount of damage.
  • Deleted user 29 April 2013 07:51:40
    The benefit to be able to RP as Solaire? Damage is overrated, it's all about the RP these days.

    That is the biggest payoff. I need to get in the sunlight covenant and do it properly.
