    Bow would be useful. No idea about upgrading. Only have my basic items right now. No shards or the like yet

    @EMarkM - aye its a bit of a twat until you get used to it. Fun comedy deaths though :)

    Poison arrows are your friend there if youre playing patiently. Its like a sadisdic version of an Indiana Jones dungeon isnt it

    Plenty of loot though
    Remember to loot all the chests there. Ignore all the troll messages trying to stop you getting hold of a lightning spear.

    *ahem*

    There's plenty of stuff and practicing time in the burg before you need to upgrade stuff

    Seems a bit more polished than demons. Like the freedom too. So far so impressed.

    Like how they threw in the asylum demon so early. Was a bit of a shock as I thought it was still tutorial. Not many games would throw you in like that

    I'd say that the first demon was the biggest shock. But they'll give you plenty of surprisingly hard challenges at inopportune moments.

    I still haven't attacked Demon Soul's. Looking forward to it when I've tried a 2nd character through Dark Souls.

    I'm guessing though that your real skills in the combat are quite transferable whereas I'm still getting the hang of the combat system.

    BTW any advice for meaty weapons that scale well with both Dex and Str. I do have a zwei and a Dark Knight Greatsword.

    Might try a bit of 2 handing if necessary.

    Scale well with both str and dex? The longsword and halbard have been amazing for my str/dex build. However neither have especially good scaling.

    If it's your first time through, I'd focus on just one of the str or dex stats, and pick a weapon that scales well with that stat. It'll benefit you more until the soft cap of 40.

    I certainly feel much more confident starting dark having already finished demons. Think the open world thing would have been very intimidating if I wasn't already confident with the combat.

    Speaking of which. Is there anyway in game I can see the movesets for each weapon?

    I'm beginning to doubt EVERYTHING. Hints I read in the game, left my "fellow" players...is it a trick? Tips left here by you guys...are you just trying to get me hurt? :D

    Just got wiped out AGAIN, but I've seen the onion head, and it looks like I've permently eased his sfairesphobia ;)

    Level 60+ already so dex is already 33 or so.

    Exploring sens and dying a lot at the moment :-)

    4 King bastards! It's going to feel good when I eventually beat them. Jolly co-operation couldn't bring the beasts down but I'm going in again, full tank mode though now. Havels set and I acquired the Greatshield of Artorias. Badass mode engaged.

    Haha 4 King Hell, but it sounds like your gonna sort them right out now. I have a SL1 pyro who took down the 4 Kings in the same gear :) keep with it.

    Well I did a pretty cool hit and back flip move with my scimitar but have not been able to replicate. The wiki is probably my friend....

    Dont forget that using the moves and attacks results in different attacks. Like pressing round button and then attacking. Same as rolling forward and pressing r1 will do a different attack

    The scimitar has that move in place of the kick I believe.

    Aha. Got that move down now.

    Really liking it so far. Got a feeling I could quite easily get lost though.

    @Architect_z - its the latest trend in builds. You have to use kit you've never used before. Ive got the knight shield, elite leggings, thief top and partizan on +4. Wish I'd have chosen something other than the partizan though. Its great for normal enemies but its unwieldy as fuck for bosses. Fucked up gargoyles and Capra multiple times. Might jave to use something else.

    And yes, I was a little tipsy :)
