Started as a Knight and I've gone for pure strength using a +5 Black Knight Greatsword with the Grass Crest Shield, Mask of the Son and the Cloranthy Ring for faster stamina regen and the rest is Black Knight chest, legs and arms. Smashed through most bosses with that build (Orstnein & Smough went down really quick with the two-handed BKG attack) and the only one I really had trouble with was Kalameet.

Played through the whole of the DLC yesterday afternoon, it's a lot shorter than I remembered.


Yeah, I played this build on my last playthrough. It was pretty good. Twinkling Titanite can be hard to come by early game, but I had an upgraded Black Knight Sword for Ornstein/Smough and it was an easier fight than I envisaged.

That fight with Artorias in the DLC is awesome gooseberry fool.

It also comes to mind that I need to get back to the undead asylum and get a few special items (according to the walthrough on IGN).


How have you spotted Anor Londo if you haven't got through Sen's Fortress?


From the back entrance of blighttown yes, i think thats anor londo?


Nope.

From the back entrance of blighttown yes, i think thats anor londo? I cleared undead asylum apart from the stray demon. I was hoping to have some online help, but couldn’t see any summon signs. I spent quite a while farming humanity in the depths, which i felt was a necessity going forward.

Currently i have the drake sword at +2, but thats not strong enough for the lizards at the beginning of sens fortress.


no that's New Londo :)

The Drake Sword isn't very good. The Zweihander is a weapon that can last you all the way to the end of the game, and you can pick it up off the floor in the Graveyard at Firelink Shrine.

Drake sword + 2

The Drake Sword is only good for the first few areas and after that it's easily outclassed by other stuff you can get. Plus, it can only be upgraded with dragon scales which are hard to come by. Are you concentrating on strength or dexterity?

The main weakness of the Drake Sword is that it doesn't scale with your stats, meaning as your level goes up it gets comparatively worse. If you've been putting levels into strength or dexterity (but don't tell anyone you levelled dex) then other weapons of equivalent level will be stronger, even if their raw damage is lower.

That's what the letters are when you look at the weapons, as well as the +X on the damage stat. Just how well they work off your stats.

Oops! Strength, endurance and vitality mainly. I have the black knight sword, but can’t wield it!

Black Knight Sword got me through the game three times over, it would definitely be my recommended pick. If you're at that stage of the game you can't be too far away stats-wise, if so try a little grinding of souls to get you up to the requires levels. You'll be amazed at the difference it makes.

You require 20 Strength and 18 Dexterity to wield the sword, after that it scales best with Strength so just pump all your points into that plus Endurance and Vitality as necessary.

That's one of the best weapons in the game. Level your stats up so you can wield it, focus on strength after that and you can just stick with it.
