    Need a playthrough for a Heavy Armour tank

    Post by IV_Mark_VI on Wed Sep 26, 2012 10:11 am

    Hey everyone, doing a playthrough with someone new to the game.

    My rules are these:
    1) I can only have access to items/areas he has found. He is doing no looking online or anywhere else, so I have to plan around an assumed route. No charging into the forest to snag the stone armour.

    2) I want my build to be as heavy weapon/armour as possible. STR/END/VIT. Aiming for 27 str. Will likely go into 15 INT and then potentially dex.. really don't know at this point.

    At this point, we've beaten the gargoyles. We didn't kill the black knights, as mainly I back off and let him fight the hard fights (or I play badly on purpose and die); it makes the game flat if someoen experienced just breezes through the tough fights. I want him to conquer those knights by himself, he'll feel much better.

    He missed Lautrec, he found the Halberd... what else. He almost missed the Undead Merchant in undead burg... can't be sure of finding any secrets.


    So how would you do it?

    Start as Knight. Heaviest weapons he'd likely find is Bastard Sword at Andre; I doubt he'd go get the Zweihander.

    What would be the next armours/weapons you'd find in a playthrough? Great club in Queelags likely. Eagle shield. What else?

    With the upcoming nerf to the eagle shield I would only use it until I can get a better GS e.g. Tower, Also if the plan is to put some points into DEX & STR I would run and get the claymore until I could get the MSGS, as for armour I would stick with the (Elite) Knight gear until I could get the Black Iron armour.

    95% physical damage combined with heavy armour will be fine. Most times with heavy weapons you're trading blows anyways.

    My rules state I can only get weapons he has access to. So if he figures out how to beat/get by the dragon,then I can get the Claymore. MSGS is doable once we start going through Sen's; thanks! Even though I think it's an ugly weapon happy

    Well if he cant get past the Dragon you could just pick up the Bastard sword, pretty much the same thing stat wise.
