    A couple of questions as I'm getting closer to the end of the game

    Post by Sixaxis on Fri Feb 17, 2012 8:02 pm

    Hey guys

    I've been playing Dark Souls for the past 3 weeks and I'm pretty sure I'm getting close to the end of the game and I have a couple of questions

    1. I'm currently in the Chaos Servant Covenant and I got to rank 2 so I could open up the shortcut to Lost Izalith.

    I still haven't placed the Lordvessel yet, and I didn't realize the shortcut was behind the golden gate, so I wasn't able to use it. I wanted to use the shortcut to get the Sunlight Maggot, since I haven't done Tomb of Giants yet and I figured it would be best if I go there prepared.

    Now I'm almost at the Four Kings battle to get to Kaathe and place the Lordvessel.

    My question - If I understand correctly, he will ask you a question when you first talk to him and if you answer no you cannot place the Lordvessel with him or join his covenant (I do want to join his covenant)

    If I join his covenant and break the previous one with the Chaos Servant, will the shortcut now be open when I go there? Because I've read at some places that you actually have to touch the wall in order to open the shortcut.

    2. What order should I take from here? I'm going to do the Four Kings battle and then what? I think I've done pretty much all the optional stuff including the Gardens, Painted World, Hollow, Ash Lake... Except for Vally of The Drakes (Is there something of value there? I took the items near the Undead Dragon

    3. I'm using a Uchigatana Lightning +5 which I just recently made and I'm enjoying the hell out of it after using the Drake Sword then the Lightning Spear

    Are there any other recommended Sword/Katanas I should try? I've got 20 STR and DEX

    Also, Should I make a fire weapon? I'm a Pyro and I realize I've got this (kind of) covered, but having a fire weapon wouldn't hurt anyone.. right? What would be a good fire weapon?

    4. What stats should I invest in from now on? I've got 30 VIT and END, 20 STR and DEX and 17 Attunement (How high should I aim for with this? How many useful Pyro spells are there really?)

    I'll also be glad to hear any tips you might have happy

    I realize I wrote a **** ton of text, I hope this won't scare people away lol
    Thank you happy

    Ok. So here I go:

    First off, my recommendation would be to beat the Four Kings. Talk to Kaathe and place the lordvessel but don't join his covenant, warp to the area near the shortcut to the Lost Izalith and open it, then warp to the abyss and join the darkwraiths, problem solved as far as I know (someone correct me if I'm wrong).

    As far as what order you go in that is up to you. Each place is hard and messed up in its own way. So pick your poison.

    As far as your weapon goes that seems alright. I wouldn't really worry about a fire weapon. If you're looking for another sword to use the Iiato is great. Less damage than the uchi but the moveset is much better. With your stats however you have a lot of different weapons you can use so I would experiment and see what you like best.

    As for your stats bring attunement up to 19, that should put you at 5 slots, because at 17 its doing nothing for you. As far as useful pyro spells that depends on if you're doing pvp or pve. For pve they all have their use. The main ones you'll want to stalk are Fire Orb, Great/great chaos fireball, great combustion and firestorm/chaos storm/fire tempest. For PvP stick to Great Combustion and Great fireball. You can sometimes use a firestorm but its iffy. Bring your end and vit to 40 or so, after that they really don't do much. I'd also pick one (dex or str) and bring it as high as you can. Assuming you started as a pyromancer, make your stats look like this and you should be set for some pvp by the time you get to the kiln.

    You can remove points from str or dex and put them into vit for a bit more health, or put them into one another for a bit more damage.

    Happy gaming big grin

    1) You don't need to join Kaathe's covenant to put the lordvessel in place. Follow Errjon6661's steps. He covered it well.

    2) You should take the Izalith shortcut just to get the Sunlight Maggot, and then go straight up to Tomb of Giants. After that level up at will and prepare to die unless you follow a guide because the Bed of Chaos (Izalith's Boss) it's kind of a puzzle-boss, and you will probably get killed. After this, all you have left is Seath the Scaless. You can always summon help to kill him. Then Kiln of the First Flame. That's endgame. Remember do not complete Kiln of the first flame unless you want to be pushed to NG+ already.

    3) That weapon it's okay for you current stats. You should pump some more a main stat like Stret or dex so you can focus in one set of weapons. If you're new I would advice you to level up Stret so you can use Big Weapons that do good damage without too much effort. If you do this I advice you to use a Black Knight weapon (like the Greataxe) or the Great Club. Don't do a fire weapon. You are okay with the lighting, just focus on doing a normal weapon that scales with the stat that you're going to level up. At high levels elemental weapons (fire, chaos and lighting) suck.

    4) Like I said in 2nd answer you should level up stret or Dex, and vit and end to 40.

    Thank you very much to both of you!

    I just beat the Four Kings on my second try and Demon Firesage on my first try, both without a walkthrough silly

    The shortcut was already open and I got the Sunlight Maggot and I'm going to the Catacombs and Tomb of Giants right now

    I've got my ATT to 19
    My VIT and END are now both 33

    I don't know if I should invest in STR so close to the ending.. I'll basically have to farm souls in order to get it high enough, because if I'm just going to follow the story, the game will be over before I manage to level my STR high enough

    Also, I realize I should know this by now, but I've played most of the game being offline because I just want to enjoy the game without being invaded

    What are some basic things I should know about the online aspect? What are my choices to do PVP? Invade or being invaded?

    For PvP use the pyromancies Great Combustion and Great Fireball, with your current stats, unless you spend stats in one main stat, your Lighting Uchigatana should be fine.
