    Leveling question for my pyromancer: Probably just going to do a melee build with him, so should I just level STR, END and VIT or should I through some DEX in there, too? Right now running with the axe you get at the beginning but would like to use some longswords as well. Typical sword (or axe) and board character with flamey secondary attack. If I'm totally doing this wrong please do let me know!

    Right now I'm getting my ass kicked in Undead Burg by the black knight waiting down those stairs at the end of a corridor. Fun!

    @stryker1121

    The general rule with melee build is strength or dex. Start plugging one or the other (str if you prefer heavy builds, dex for light and nimble builds), and then add a little of the other if you need it for certain weapons or armour you want.

    The most important stat in the game is probably Endurance as it dictates your stamina. Stamina management is the key skill you need to learn! A little Vitality for HP wont hurt either.

    Oh and don't worry about that black knight too much. You can always come back to him when you have levelled up a bit :)

    @robc84 Thanks, man! I'm thinking I'd like to do a nimble build, so I'll start plugging more points into DEX..the wiki seemed to indicate that Dex also helps with spell casting for pyro. Is that accurate?

    Not sure about dex and pyro as I ruined pyro for my playthrough :-(

    One of the veterans should be able to clarify.

    @stryker1121 welcome to the game. I believe DEX increases casting speed.

    My first build was a DEX pyro rocking an Uchigatana sword which scales fantastically the higher your DEX gets.  As was said above put points in DEX or STR.

    I'll second END being most important because it dictates the size of the green stamina bar and also your load carrying limit.

    The bigger the bar the more running you can do before resting.  It also governs the more hits you can deal or absorb.   If not being attacked drop your shield to regenerate your stamina bar ready for another hit... Still the best bit of advice I was ever given. Get your head around this and the combat just becomes all kinds of fun.

    If you want nimble make sure your weight is at least under 50% of you carrying limit or ideally 25% or under for the fastest possible person.

    @crashVoodoo Great, thanks much! Early on I'm getting loads of crap gear I want to dump. Is there anything to do with that stuff besides just get rid of it?

    You can get rid of all the junk eventually, but your gonna have to earn that privilege.

    Dark Souls is like that :)

    Personally I would try to take on the early black knight as the ring behind him is very useful indeed early on. He has a complex move set but it can be learned with adequate blocking and stamina control. He is also relatively easy to back stab. Saying that, I took him on ony first playthrough and it took me ages but it is a good learning exercise imo.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    BTW, thanks for the kind words.

    Gravelord Nito down on my first attempt.

    Not sure what's next... Done Ceaseless Discharge then stopped after killing the Taurus Demons.

    O & S done, so have the four kings.

    Duke's archives it is for the moment... Just about to hit SL 100 and other than +10 ing my elite knight gear I'm not to bothered about levelling gear or myself. Going to plough through the story line until I hit another brick wall.

    Demon's Souls is calling.

    Yeah I'd second this too. If you are really struggling with him, an easier method to beating him is to clear the all lesser undead in the vicinity and then pull the guy (either with a stealthy backstab, firebomb, throwing knife or whatever) and then leg it back to the ladder you can climb opposite the circular watchtower just up the steps from the knight. You can then plunge-attack him with relative safety and run back to the ladder ad infinitum.

    Of course, 3 parry-ripostes ought to floor him too :)

    @DodgyPast

    There's an area down below in the Demon Ruins as well as the ghost area in New Londo to check out once you're done with Dukes. Congrats on the progress :)

    Yeah I think I went for backstabs on that first black knight. Cleared the area and lured him back to the open area where you go up to the archer. Plenty of room there.

    It is a good training fight.

    PS3 = Yep

    I went for the Black Armour edition. I was happy with the game (ofcourse) and the soundtrack. I originally looked at getting the collectors edition, and I would have liked the artbook, but i'm not bothered about the figurine or the cloth map, and I can't warrant paying almost £80. Although i'm sure Dark Souls would be worth it, the main things I want are the game and soundtrack.


    So i'm happy. ^_^


    (EDIT: Also I may get some sort of steel art card thing, as i've pre-ordered it from Amazon, but I don't really care about that either, so I think thats gonna get ebay'd!!!)

    I've only got a small flat full of random things, the last thing I need is more crap to fill up space I dont have. You get the metal case with both editions, but I think you get a cloth map only with the collectors.

    I heard rumours they were gonna make a Dark Souls chess set with one of the editions. I'd pay shed loads for that, but can't find it anywhere.

    I'd have that too.

    So this map is effectively going to cost me £80 isn't it.

    Honestly, I'd be tempted to get a map too. Probably wouldn't use for for the first run but would be great for further playthroughs!
