    Four Kings, meet Great Club.

    Tanking them was a lot easier than I remembered it being. Smough's set is just lovely.

    Right. I'm going to do a pure strength char. Was thinking of going deprived, level up str to 24 for zwei and them take it from there.

    Opinions?

    Opinions?
    Stay at 24 strength and make the Zwei into a lightning weapon. The Zwei doesn't actually scale that well with strength, only a C rating, I think. Save the points and invest them in endurance and vitality. Wear heavy armour and go for the medium movement speed. It's frustrating to get stunned while you can't swing your slow Zwei.

    Cheers Dan. So would you choose something else other than the zwei? Or at least, what do you think I should be aiming for long term?

    I'm not the strength build kind of guy but from what I've seen and done, I'd go for the lightning zweihander at the beginning and then switch to the black knight great axe (36 strength and 18 dexterity), that's for late game. You have to farm one first.

    For NG+ and beyond I'd go for the great club normal +15 + a buff.
    The Great Club is a very good weapon, I like the moveset a lot.

    Axes, besides the black knight great axe have a f**ked moveset. You miss once and you can go and make yourself a cup of tea while you recover - being hacked to bits and pieces in the meantime.

    In general, stay tanky and go for medium movement speed.

    Go man serpent greatsword quad, A scaling, weighs only 10 units, great moveset and easy to obtain. get that at +15 with 40 strength and it hits like a fucking truck

    I did it!!!
    After several hours I destroyed the final boss, I ended him with firestorm which was satisfying :-)

    \o/
    \o/\o/
    \o/\o/\o/\o/

    I then continued and blitzed through Undead Burg, killed the boss on the ramparts easily and ran past the dragon breath to ksetup the shortcut to the Undead Burg bonfire.

    So, how does this NG+ work?

    Well done!

    NG+ is exactly the same but enemies hit harder and have more health. If anything until you reach the Four Kings it's probably easier than regular game as you're more skilled and your geezer is one tooled up mother hubbard.

    Congrats!

    Yeah up until you hit probably Ornstein and Smough the game is relatively easy, you get more souls from enemies but they hit harder, have more health and bosses have greater resistances.

    If you're going really high strength, the Demon's Greataxe is your best possible bet, the other one is to go with the Butcher's Knife that Mildred drops, it is a really good strength weapon, while it doesn't do as much damage per hit as the bigger strength weapons, you can swing it a lot faster.

    Black Knight Greataxe is also really good, but you have to be lucky to get it before the endgame. Or be willing to do a dozen suicide runs into the Catacombs early in the game. I was lucky.

    Also, Great Club. It has A scaling, and the unquantifiable pleasure of twatting someone across the head with a giant tree branch. With high Strength, it's one of the hardest-hitting weapons in the game.

    So zwei, man serpent, demons greataxe and the bk greataxe

    Decisions!

    Well zwei is available from the off. Man serpent at sens, demons greataxe....lucky drop of Taurus perhaps? And bk axe - where's that?

    Why would I need to go to the catacombs for the bk axe? Does the bk there reliably drop it then?
  • Deleted user 21 October 2013 08:48:05
    *cough*
    Demon Great Machete too - my personal favourite

    /not helping any

    Is that off the mini Capra's?
  • Deleted user 21 October 2013 08:52:30
    Yeah, you can get one of Capra too (albeit rarely). You can get one fairly early if you grind them after Ceaseless though.

    You have to find a black knight who wields a black great axe. There is one in the catacombs and one in front of the final boss. That's the only two I know about.

    Hm, I'm going to have to be pretty lucky to get that then.

    And let's not talk about drop chances for me shall we

    Wait till you get to O&S on NG+ before you say that :p

    Did you interact with the painting in Anor Londo in your first run through?

    I'll miss it though :-(

    Congratulations Armoured Bear! Pretty sweet feeling to have beaten the game right? It's ok to leave the game for a while, just don't be surprised if it starts calling you back to it at some point. ;)
