    @Widge - Sounds good, just don't bother upgrading the drake sword, its ok for an early weapon, but look to upgrading something else, the drake sword doesnt last till the end of the game.

    Good luck
    Last time I grabbed a barbed sword which lasted me forever, fancy mixing it up in a magical style.
    Ooh, I never used my barbed sword. Those BSSes were dropping like candy for me, so I often used those with my lighter characters, but I'm tempted by another playthrough with something different. How is it?
    I only got so far with it as I took it to Chaos and then ran out of the ability to upgrade it! Seemed effective, and the bleed damage was quite a nice thing to have.

    On an entirely unrelated subject, I have just rescued BHL.

    Really MUST get back to AL now, though...

    @quadfather If "Int" was to me, then, sadly, no. Only 12 Int (28 End, 40 Dex, though) so he doesn't have much to say to me at the moment :(

    I've just got back to AL, and I'm doing my usual soul circuit to grab a few more twinkly bits. Also need chunks, but they're much harder to get here.

    12 is enough to cast bits and bobs

    Yeah, I need red chunks now :/

    So do different colour chunks upgrade different weapons / armour, or do they upgrade things in different ways?

    Upgrade things in different ways. So for example, red stuff will help with Fire and Chaos

    Whereas white will do divine and occult

    blue = magic + enchanted

    and so on

    When you've got some of each colour, check with the different blacksmiths to see what you could upgrade your weapon to. And blacksmiths differ in their ability - Andre only does a couple of paths, so you have to visit a different blacksmith for certain paths

    Yeah, it's enough for his mate to teach me, but he himself won't; "wrong framework" apparently, but I "shouldn't feel too bad about it"!

    Well I'm going standard path with my iaito, but I could do something interesting with my longbow maybe.

    Yeah you can mix and match. A +5 lightning bandits knife, a +5 chaos blade, a +5 occult bow - whatever you want really

    The thing about elemtlental upgrades though is that they remove the stat scaling. So while they look meaty, not much matches a +15 normal weapon with the required scaling stat pumped up to 40 + a buff like crystal magic weapon. Thats just destruction on a plate

    But elemental weapon can decimate stuff too, especially if the enemies youre fighting are prone to the elemental damage

    Elemental weapons are great for a first run through the game but become somewhat obsolete in NG+.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    As you may recall, I regretted changing my BSS +10 to Lightning, and have now reversed it.

    It was great in some of the earlier areas, but massively reduced my damage against the knights of AL.

    I have another one, completely unimproved, which I might change to Fire when I have the ability to do so. Already have a Divine Iaito which I'm hoping will be useful later :)

    Think I need to get me one of these bss's.

    There are only like 3 balder knights in sens though from what I can remember. Unless there are more after using the cage key....

    @robc84 There or Undead Parish. Unless you've been infected with the You-Know-Who Curse, you'll have a couple after a dozen runs or so, wearing your Covetous ring, assuming you found it :)

    Yeah no luck with the ones in the parish. Just thought there would be more of them in sens. Come to think of it I think there is only 1 that uses the sword!

    My what ring now?
