    Tips for my challenge run

    Post by MalevolenceK on Sun Dec 02, 2012 7:43 pm

    Ok, so i am attempting to do a challenge run, for it i will play as a deprived, and keep all my stats at the same level. this means that i cannot raise a stat to 13 until every other stat is at 12.

    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=436358535692875789 is what i will be looking at for SL 100 silly

    i am basically looking for suggestions on weapons/spells to use. i will probably farm a heap for extra levels so i can get vit up to around 20 ASAP.

    thanks in advance

    Not sure what weapons you have access to but Obsidian GS is great for low stats like that. When at +5 I beleive it has an AR of 485 and can be buffed , so maybe through Great Magic Weapon on it for boss fights and things like that. Gear will be tough on you I would imagine with only 23 END , since it is hard to stack much poise with so little heavy armor. Of course Havels and RoFaP will help. Stats are really to low to be much of a caster , but you can get a lot of decent self buffs with those stats that help out a lot.

    Hope some of that is helpful and good luck happy

    that sounds quite good- i won't stop at SL100 but i figured thats about the level i will be finishing NG

    using an unupgraded astora's SS at the moment, it killed the gargoyles easily but the trees in DRG are laughing at it.

    i figure that the more stats i can get a waepon to scale with the better so the C/C/C on that could be decent upgraded? opinions?

    just bought the crest of artorias and i think ill level up to 50ish on the NPC's there before i attempt capra+blightown.

    still need weapon reccomendations for early game- the obsidian GS is late in the game and very hard to aquire.

    I was thinking, This, but I'm not the best at making builds. Everything there should be easily obtainable at the point you are at in the game currently

    I think it would be wise to leave out Res entirely since it's useless. Spread your points into the other stars would be better.

    this is a challenge run- i am not so focused on being as powerful as i can. So resistance has got to stay i am afraid.

    Also I feel a pyromancy glove, or elemtental weapons would be greatly against the spirit of the challenge.

    Not sure if you are going to be summoning help or not. But if you are , you could get Obsidian right after Lord Vessel which is about half way point. But Gravelord Sword is a great sub until then. Also has huge AR without much stat requirements.

    Gotta make use of those attunments slots! Not all that much worthwhile at 15 Int/ Fth.

    A balancing solution could be that you level the glove along with your stats. Every round of Stats, you get to upgrade your glove 1 more time. (The same could go for all gear upgrades, actually.)

    Um, yes there is.
    Use the Thoroland or Oolacile catalyst, perhaps the dusk crown to boost it up a bit more.
