    Any of you guys got a good suggestio for a 20 strength/16 dex weapon to use prior to getting the Obsidian Greatsword?

    My options are as follows:
    Claymore (old faithful).
    Flamberge (bleed makes certain bosses a lot easier).
    Gargoyle Halberd (decent allrounder).
    Great Scythe!

    Starting to. Going to be pretty grim work. Grabbed the Adventurer's set in case I need balanced curse and poison resistance.

    Think it should be okay. Just expecting to die a lot getting to know it.

    Got 20 humanity items so should be good for farming some titanite off the slugs later.

    Hopped out of Tomb of the giants to upgrade and such before trying Nito again

    Think I might go with the Zweihander, and replace my lightning spear with the demon's spear (really like spears). Also going to invest more in pyromancy

    Is the Ring of Favor and Protection worth it?

    Personally I never leave home without it. Annoying at times though because you're down to one ring spot.

    Pissed and falling down and dying in Blight Town.

    Think I'll take this overlevelled beast as far as I can.

    Determined to plough my way through the game again focusing on gear and real skill so I can be human and invadeable / co-op orientated next time around. I think next time around black leather, spider shield, BSS, wolf ring and pyromancy should be my goal.

    As much effectiveness as possible at a low enough level, that I should be able to enjoy being human. I'll die often enough but should be able to farm a decent setup.

    Had to revisit strength character again today. Last time I played it a week ago I was drunk and was in blighttown. Cue 60 deaths, fuck all humanity left and no anti poison stuff. And no rusted iron ring. Well that was a good idea doh.

    Still she's in anor now at the 2nd bonfire. Not particularly looking forward to this run as I'm still getting used to the zwei. Its on 10 now and this is the first char where I'll have to deal with lautrec too. Also only got 48 poise and most of that is from wolf ring. Archers next, sigh

    @quadfather One of my chars with a lightning zwei never got past O+S so good luck. I never mastered that beast of a sword.

    All still to come from me. Though still enjoying the general bloody mindedness that the game promotes.

    Honestly I just want to ring the bell and find out how many souls I can get through dumping my crap to Frampt.

    Wondering about that dragon on the bridge earlier. Could I take him down using flame sweat.

    @BillCityfingers - cheers. I'll try. Most bosses have been fairly straightforward but its just so fucking slow. Damage is great though

    Blight town.

    I tend to use the wikis so I'm not too terrible equipment wise.

    Stone armour, havels ring to support that or Thief's armour with the wolf ring. Usually the evil eye ring to limit needing heal or estus.

    I'd just like to kill that dragon on the bridge that gives the Drake Sword.

    Not following any videos so stumbling around. Set up is pretty poison resistant so at the moment randomly falling to my death seems to be the order of the day.

    Oh bit of a tip for you, the two handed R2 attack of the Zwei actually stuns Smough and is capable of breaking him out of his attacks, if you have two Zwei users on that boss fight he basically becomes stunlocked where each person takes it in turns to use the R2.

    Shame summoning is so fucking awkward in Dark Souls compared to Demon Souls otherwise I'd offer to give you a hand in Anor Londo, got plenty of characters in the Level 50 range that exist soley to help people on Smough and Ornstein.

    Also making a Balder Knight build, got everything except the shield which always takes me ages to farm. It seems we are compatriots in Balder Knight bastardry, perhaps if we team up I can swap you all the BSS I'm getting for the Balder Shields you get.

    @Dr_Mech - shields? Baldur shields? Shit man, I'm tripping over em

    No bss again today. Even on a str char I take a bit of time out just to torture myself.

    Nice nip about smough, cheers

    I actually have one of those builds, it isn't up to the level in the video (120) but it can medium roll in that gear already and yes it is a super easy PvP build since unless people know to get you from range it will stunlock the crap out of people and kill them.

    Also I got three, count them, three BSS from the Knights in Parish and still no fucking shield...ech.

    Got three in about 8 round trips and with 8 humanity, going to load the game back up and try again for the shield.

    Upgraded zwei to +5 and it feels like a beast now :)

    Is there any way to upgrade it further that would be useful for str/dex scaling?

    You will be able to upgrade it further when you get further into the game but it remains c/c for dex and strength.

    SL1 Four Kings is gruelling. I think they gruelled me fifteen times today, and I haven't even killed the second one so far :(

    ....It's just like the first playthrough all over again! <3

    Personal tips for SL1 4kings.

    1) Fully upgrade your pyromancy glove, like all the way, get hard hitting spells which cast quickly, Combustion and Great Combustion work wonders for this fight.

    2) Stone armour or Havel's set if you're doing them later in the game, yes it still works even for a SL1 run.

    3) try to have your elemental weapon of choice (usually fire reinforced club) up to +8 or its equivilent, you can do it with +5 fire weapon but by god does it take a while (very recently did a SL1 run of the Four kings by beating as few bosses before them as possible).

    5) Defeat Pinwheel and boost the bonfire to 20 estus flask.

    Follow these steps and ye should be golden.

    Sober is definitely helpful in Blighttown.

    The dart guys seem pretty useless against my set up. Wandered around, found an Eagle shield, hard leather armour and a laito.... Oh and also power within.

    Killed some huge tentacled beasty with my bow then stumbled across a bonfire and rested.

    So far so good.

    Contemplating going back to the asylum to grab the rusted ring though.

    It's the bottom of Blight Town that's the most annoying. I would just get in straight to the boss and get out.
