    Logging my progress in the one-shot challenge.

    Post by Rynn on Tue Dec 18, 2012 4:32 pm

    View this thread for infoirmation

    I'm going to be attempting Vagata's one shot challange, and I'll be doing this a lot, so I'll be making a log of everything I do here. I'm planning on trying to use Sorcery to accomplish this, mixed with the power within and red tearstone ring items. So the first thing I need to do is get my hands on the spell power within, and get my hands on the red tearstone ring. Once I have both of them, I will pump any and all level I get into inteligience. the 3 attunement slots I start with is enough to do this challenge, because I'm only allowed to cast a spell once or twice at most, otherwise I forfeit the challenge.

    When I'm fighting bosses, I only have one question.

    If I hit the boss twice, and it's not dead... is that game over, or could I kill myself and, presuming I think I can improve my damage, try again?

    I'm starting my character now, below this point I'll have in spoilers what I've accomplished, and a complete order of operations.


    I've another question: Smough and Ornstein, what is considered a hit on them? It's literally impossible to beat them in less then 2 hits due to the way the fight is set up. So is only 1 level available, or do my two hits start with when they go super mode?

    Rynn's Run, 2 point currently:

    Left undead asylum
    picked up red tearstone ring
    Using the Valley of the drakes soul items for currency, purchase Heavy Soul Arrow and a Sorcery Catalyst.
    Picked up the Power Within Spell.
    Purchase Soul Arrow
    Ran through the parish and nabbed the key to lower burg.
    Run backwards through parish and access door to lower burg.
    Purchase residence key
    Use key to save sorcerer
    Farm for 3 hours to get 20,000 souls
    Purchase reinforced club
    Upgrade to +5
    Power Within + RTSR riposte on the black knight in the burg. 1 point gained.
    Headed to the cemetary to upgrade my club to fire
    Went to blighttown and farmed green shards. Went to parish and made club a +5 fire.

    Seig's Run: 9 points currently:
    Northern Undead Asylum
    Does not apply, just owned it with pure awesomeness.

    Firelink Shrine
    My
    first order of business was to grab the Zweihander as it was going to
    be my tool for the beginner levels. It was nothing special, the usual
    "circle run" to grab the Zweihander without any worry, although this
    time I didn't kill the first skeletons that spawned, which did give me
    an uneasy feeling when I had to pass them a second time. Nevertheless,
    it went off without a hitch.

    Valley of Drakes
    *Note: I grabbed the Estoc in New Londo as I came here.
    My
    next order of business was the Valley of Drakes to get the RTSR.
    Normally, I don't speedrun my way to it, but this is a 1-shot challenge
    run...so. Well, I try to pass by the first drake and get caught in
    between its wing and tail while it was breathing lightning. I don't
    quite remember the details but I did get a nasty breath of lightning
    which luckily only hit once. Once I struggled to get over its tail I ran
    off and stopped mid-way for Estus. Was so not taking another hit from
    them. The rest of the path came off as adrenaline rushing, what with
    dodging the 3 drakes and hoping they don't kill me as I climb the
    ladder. Went fine at least.

    Blighttown
    Now for Power
    Within. I take the shortcut and start backtracking up. I try to be
    careful about being poisoned as I don't know how long I'll last with it.
    I get across the swamp without poison, but as I try to climb up a
    spider blocks my path -.- While I'm trying to get it to move I have 2
    others behind me and suddenly I get toxic (THAT BLOWDART!). Well, I
    eventually suceed to get through, but not before toxic kills me as I try
    to reach the top.

    Second go, not the same as the first! This
    time I cleverly dodge the blowdart by baiting the spider to simply
    follow me off the ramp up. I succeed and quickly make my way up only to
    notice the blowdart in front of me (Don't know whether he spawns there
    or he just moved). DODGE! Backstab! Victory!. Okay, okay. I make my way
    and cross the fog gate. So now I punch the first deformed guy off the
    ladder he was blocking and dodge the fat giant thing. While on my way to
    kill the tick, in the cavern where there are 2 deforms, I realize that
    they really are blocking my way and I can't get across, or so I though.

    I
    did manage to get across after 1 took a bite off my HP that put me in
    RTSR and I panicked and just spammed roll and what not. Run across the
    other, YES! Ladder, YES! Blowdart? Die, unfortunately I knock him off
    the platform, but he strangely didn't die as I expected. Tick, oh no, Why won't you DIE!.
    Seriously, I had spammed fireball and I had no idea how much I was
    doing and was increasingly worried those 2 deforms were following me. I
    just assumed it had resistance to FIRE and just smacked it once with my
    hand axe; dead, VICTORY!

    Grab the spell, grab the spell. Oh no! A
    deformed was waiting for me! Oh no, the blowdart I knocked off is right
    there assisting him. Homeward, WHERE is it!? I dodge an attack from the
    deformed and get stung with a blowdart that at least didn't toxic me.
    Come on, where is- I got it. GO, GO, GO! Blowdart misses and I get away
    just before the deform goes in for the finish.

    Did I mention I was at the brink of falling off the platform as well? Talk about a tight spot.

    Undead Burg
    No
    big news here. Bought the reinforced club and residence key from the
    merchant, then proceeded with the level. Skipped Havel and went to
    reinforce this thing before I moved on (to +5). Homewarded back.
    Flawlessly executed a riposte on the Black Knight in full hyper-mode. It
    died (1 level gained). Next, Taurus. 1 shotted (1576 damage or so) with
    the plunging attack, obviously with Resin (3 level). Made friends with
    Solaire and continued to the Parish.

    Parish
    At first I
    wasn't going to take the bonfire since the drake was not complying. But,
    since that K greatsword seems to have hacked the game (he totally
    hacked) so I failed my parry, I found myself forced to reliably (lol,
    passing a drake, reliable?) retrieve my bloodstain. Success.

    Now for a session of: "THE OBSTACLE DIARY!"

    Black Knight:

    "Yeah
    so, he came back up after I owned him the first time and get this. He
    tried to parry me! HAHAHAH, I showed him the futility of his way and hit
    him across the parry. TROLOLOL."
    "So he came a second time, and I did the same! U mad?"
    "He came a third and he...got OWNED!"
    "He
    came a fourth, this time with a Heater Shield. I can't recall what
    happened. I remember a pain in my waist, then nothingness. I woke up
    with a headache, that's for sure."

    (4 levels)
    So I went in and
    took the boar down next. Since I had to be careful, I had allowed the
    hollow to close the gate on me (Oh well, long way). I just took down all
    the hollows and hid and waited for the boar to return to its neutral
    position. Sneaked up on it and it was all over. (5 levels)

    I used
    my 5 levels to increase my DEX to 10 and STR to 16, which allowed me to
    use the Zwei. I proceeded to continue the level until I returned to
    Andre and boosted this weapon to +5. Then I casually went to the Tower
    Knight, went hyper mode. Parried him, then did a strong attack for a
    good 800 damage. Which was death [1 level]. Rested, re-did zone and went
    to the gargoyles.

    I was surprised to say how easily they've
    fallen. I think Gold Pine Resin must have been overkill on them as they
    both went down in 1-hit with ease. The only pressure I felt was the time
    limit of 30 seconds I had to kill them and heal myself.

    So yeah, [3 levels], bought a couple of online items from Oswald out of custom, then went to the Lower Undead Burg.

    Lower Undead Burg

    Nothing
    unusual. I rescued the mage dude (Griggs was it?) and felt opened the
    door to Firelink for obvious reasons. Then, to Capra.

    Now for a session of "THE OBSTACLE DIARIES"

    Capra Demon used jump attack
    Player prepares counter jump attack
    Dog used bite!
    Player has fallen

    Music: HA...HA...HA...HA!

    Re-try...

    Dog used bite!
    Player dodge.
    Capra Demon used jump attack
    Player was caught unawares!
    Player has fallen

    Music: HA...HA...HA...HA!

    Re-try...

    Dog used bite!
    Player blocked!
    Capra Demon used Jump Attack
    Player dodged, used roll attack
    Capra Demon could not be 1 shot!
    Capra Demon used Trollface
    Dogs used gang attack
    Player has fallen

    Music: HAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Okay, so I decide to just pick up my bloodstain that is probably in front of the fog gate...
    "Dog A used back attack! Dog B used front attack"
    "Player has fallen and lost bloodstain!"

    Those dogs...

    Oh well we can try to do Moonlight for some extra levels:

    Darkroot Garden

    Nothing
    special; I confront Butterfly with good HP since I know it is going to
    chip SOME of it off. It chips off some HP with its lance attack. Then
    chips off the rest with another...

    *Cries in a corner*

    Not hard. I already did that. Master Key, backtrack from Blighttown and believe me that the Pyro set comes very helpful for that. It is a suicide run to both Blighttown and Valley of Drakes.

    In my case Rynn, I will rather opt to go using the Zweihander, then reverting to pyromancyies and soceries later on. It is hard to get good magic before Sen's, but the Zweihander is powerful and quick to use. But this ain't about me, it is about you...

    But I thought you couldn't climb up to upper Blighttown if you go in through the VoD. I know that when I do Blighttown in the "traditional way" there comes a point where I cannot climb back up.

    There are ladders all the way back to Blighttown. The danger is, of course, the 2 or 3 blockades of enemies and the 2 blowdarts on you.

    Do I have to cross the tree trunk which leads to the Crimson Set or something? Because I know that when I reach the Wanderer Set platform that I'm pretty much stuck without recourse. Unless there are some sets of ladders that I don't know about.

    You missed ladders Pendant.

    Seignar, if you wish to use this thread too, I'll log all of your runs too. I could place it in a second spoiler below mine, and if you give me comprehensive coverage on what you have done, I'll post it all up in a log on the top.

    That's a dead end.

    There's a ladder going further up at the start of that walkway.

    It's in the direct opposite direction of the wanderer set. You do a bit of a U-turn from where the blow dart person is.

    Try walking through blight town from the right direction, and don't skip any ladders. You'll see what I speak of.

    @Rynn: You should just call it "Logs for Vageta's challenge" then. Anyways, I'll have one up daily if I can...

    Pendant, there are a complete set of multiple ladders leading all the way up, try hugging the walls as they can camouflage fairly well at times.

    To answer Rynn's question, if you can't 2-shot the boss, you can always homeward out and try again later.
    About O&S, i'm not sure how Vegeta was picturing that, but i assume you have 1 or 2 hits for either of them. so 1 or 2 to kill Ornstein and 1 or 2 to kill super Smough. (if you decide to do Ornstein first, which would be the better choice i think)

    There's a long platform about level with the blowdart guy guarding wanderer set. Backtracking from the blowdart guy should bring you to a series of ladders. Climb until you can enter a hole in the wall. I believe you find more ladders inside that area, and come out to the spot where you find the Barbarian. From there you should see where you are to make your way back out.

    DRAGON BODY
    I completely forgot about that.
    I'm going to be farming scales for several hours in the near future... that's an extra 35% damage. With that addiotional boost, I should be capable of killing literally anything in the two shots.

    That climb out going the "wrong" way is kind of a nightmare, so I can understand anyone thinking that the way isn't obvious. And like someone said, many of the ladders are kind of camouflaged, and easy to miss.

    tried to parry me! HAHAHAH, I showed him the futility of his way and hit
    him across the parry. TROLOLOL."
    "So he came a second time, and I did the same! U mad?"
    "He came a third and he...got OWNED!"
    "He
    came a fourth, this time with a Heater Shield. I can't recall what
    happened. I remember a pain in my waist, then nothingness. I woke up
    with a headache, that's for sure."

    (4 levels)
    So I went in and
    took the boar down next. Since I had to be careful, I had allowed the
    hollow to close the gate on me (Oh well, long way). I just took down all
    the hollows and hid and waited for the boar to return to its neutral
    position. Sneaked up on it and it was all over. (5 levels)

    I used
    my 5 levels to increase my DEX to 10 and STR to 16, which allowed me to
    use the Zwei. I proceeded to continue the level until I returned to
    Andre and boosted this weapon to +5. Then I casually went to the Tower
    Knight, went hyper mode. Parried him, then did a strong attack for a
    good 800 damage. Which was death [1 level]. Rested, re-did zone and went
    to the gargoyles.

    I was surprised to say how easily they've
    fallen. I think Gold Pine Resin must have been overkill on them as they
    both went down in 1-hit with ease. The only pressure I felt was the time
    limit of 30 seconds I had to kill them and heal myself.

    So yeah, [3 levels], bought a couple of online items from Oswald out of custom, then went to the Lower Undead Burg.

    Lower Undead Burg

    Nothing
    unusual. I rescued the mage dude (Griggs was it?) and felt opened the
    door to Firelink for obvious reasons. Then, to Capra.

    Now for a session of "THE OBSTACLE DIARIES"

    Capra Demon used jump attack
    Player prepares counter jump attack
    Dog used bite!
    Player has fallen

    Music: HA...HA...HA...HA!

    Re-try...

    Dog used bite!
    Player dodge.
    Capra Demon used jump attack
    Player was caught unawares!
    Player has fallen

    Music: HA...HA...HA...HA!

    Re-try...

    Dog used bite!
    Player blocked!
    Capra Demon used Jump Attack
    Player dodged, used roll attack
    Capra Demon could not be 1 shot!
    Capra Demon used Trollface
    Dogs used gang attack
    Player has fallen

    Music: HAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Okay, so I decide to just pick up my bloodstain that is probably in front of the fog gate...
    "Dog A used back attack! Dog B used front attack"
    "Player has fallen and lost bloodstain!"

    Those dogs...

    Oh well we can try to do Moonlight for some extra levels:

    Darkroot Garden

    Nothing
    special; I confront Butterfly with good HP since I know it is going to
    chip SOME of it off. It chips off some HP with its lance attack. Then
    chips off the rest with another...

    *Cries in a corner*
    END DAY
    Tower Knight no longer counts? sad I guess that means I only have 2 levels to use for tomorrow, not 3.

    ^ I guess it's debatable if the tower knight counts. Well if the channeler in the parish doesn't, i guess the tower knight doesn't either. Neither are very powerful.

    How are you gonna manage to oneshot the moonlight butterfly? O.o

    Tower Knight = Berenike Knight. So yes they count.

    So what is your strategies?
    Mine is to first use the reinforced club to get some levels early in. Once I got 6 levels I get Great Heavy Soul Arrow. When combined withall the buffs I can get, and the Oolacile Catalyst, I'm expecting it will be enough to easily score my way through the rest of the bosses if I keep spamming points into Int. The only one I am worried about is Qualagg, but I think I can take her too with just enough int.

    Personally I'm just going straight melee until I have no other option but to use magic. I do use power within of course, but no actual offensive spells or pyromancies. Just for fun I'm also staying level 1 for as long as possible just to see how far I can get, and according to my testing I think I can rack up 15-16 points before I'm forced to level. I may even be able to go a little further if I allow use of pyro while still at sl 1.

    I know for a fact I can 2 shot Quelaag without much issue, I'm really going to try and get a 1 shot though when the time comes.

    How have you two-shot Qualagg, if I may ask?
