    Fuck off. Just fuck off :)

    When did you start the faith character?

    Last night, got an 8 pack in and got as far as AL before my eyes became too bleary to focus. Hopped on now and downed O&S first try with a random summon.

    \o/

    Lol. Spawny git :)

    I'm going to batter it over the next few days with some cans as well.

    What's the order to do the faith char?

    Not sure what's best but I did the 2 bells, farmed some green titanites, killed butterfly, upgraded Longsword to +5 devine, Sens, O&S bringing me to TotG.

    Up until now I've only really had souls for lvling up seeing as pretty much all the gear/spells are from TotG so I've felt rather weak but that will soon change.

    Pinwheel down and running through TotG without a light 'cause that's how I roll ;)

    Oh and Sif just because I was there to get the hornet ring before finishing AL.

    What weapons do you use whilst getting ready?

    And you do Frampt then I assume?

  • Deleted user 28 November 2013 11:35:18
    Just the +5 Devine Longsword but the Crystal Halbard for O&S. Pretty weak tbh, that's been the hardest part no doubt.

    Oh, and yeah Fraampt.

    Yeah I never know which weapon to generally use before getting the weapon of choice later on.

    I might have a lowish level faith character actually. Might take a look when I get home. But its just so much fun starting new chars :)

    Just looking at different armour sets on the wiki. Might try out the black cloak. Looks pretty badass

    also, do you use hollow soldier's waistcloth, or the hollow warrior's waistcloth?

    psn quaddy456, Dark Souls tips

  • Deleted user 28 November 2013 11:47:54
    Soldiers is better imo. Random drop so you might need to farm the Burg for a bit but not too hard to come by.

    I assume you're talking about Black Sorcerer's gear? If so, yeah that is very cool aesthetically :)

    It's velka's set, in painted doo dad. Just the cloak might look cool mixed with some hollow stuff

    psn quaddy456, Dark Souls tips

  • Deleted user 28 November 2013 12:21:01
    Ah yeah of course, Velka's is much better :)

    Finished my Cleric now, all I need to do is farm some more chunks to finish upgrading my armour and xbow and hopefully luck out on a couple of slabs too.

    Off to New Londo I trot :)

    What are you going to take your faith to, for the scaling and miracles? What's it on now, and how does that boost the axes attacks?

    psn quaddy456, Dark Souls tips

  • Deleted user 28 November 2013 12:28:04
    It's exactly what I linked on the last page, so 28 primarily for WotG.

    The axe is B faith scaling iirc, maxed out I was riposting silver knights for c600 one shot kills.

    My thinking is that using Effigy shield 90% physical defence will allow Karmic Justice to proc quite often and, combining that my highish faith with Ring of the Sunborn thingy, will put out some decent defensive dmg.

    Might work, might not, not tested it yet :/

    Never used karmic justice. Though saying that, I've never really got a faith character off the ground, which I am going to have to rectify :)

    Didn't know it was bugged though

    Made it to the depths bonfire. Fell for another trap on the way though. Saw something shiny to my left. Was prepared for a trap so I thought something will probably drop behind me or something. I did not realise it would drop on top me and suck my brains out. :-(
  • Deleted user 28 November 2013 13:43:24
    You don't know the meaning of the word 'trap' yet Rob, there are far more fiendish ones left to surprise you ;)

    @quad: I'll read up a bit more on Karmic Justice, I've not really used it much before either. Your YT link is borked btw.

    @robc84 I've both seen and left messages about that one.

    Well done for getting to the bonfire though.

    Have you explored everywhere yet?

    Yeah like I say I knew it was a trap, but I was expecting an ambush or something, not THAT!

    I really should just leave these things when I know they are a trap. But I just cant. I have to have it!

    @quadfather Heh. That's exactly what I was thinking of.

    Wonder if Rob has purchased a certain item...

    @EMarkM Nope. Just got the key and headed back to the bonfire. I'm guessing I'm going to have to take on that giant rat in the very near future... Poison gear at the ready!

    Unfortunately am back at work now. Hoping to get on later.

    Karmic Justice build in a nutshell apparently -

    Stats:
    20 Faith

    50 Int

    Rest up to player.

    Equipment:

    Velka's Talisman

    Tin Crystallization Catalyst

    Crown of Dusk

    Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring

    Red Tearstone RIng

    Rest up to player; keeping fast roll preferred.

    Spells:

    Karmic Justice.

    Strategy:

    Cast Karmic Justice with velka's talisman; switch to the catalyst. Run around the opponent until they hit you enough for the explosion to trigger. Profit.

    @quadfather One trick to add to that is to equip the Eagle Shield. You'll take a much smaller amount of damage, but just enough successive hits so that it almost guarantees the explosion before you die.

    Yeah, the video I posted above says to use a 95% shield, or maybe even 90%

    Definitely something different, build wise

    Sounds fun, I'll look into it at some point, cheers for the video quad, very informative!
