    New Player, Looking for Help

    Post by NixoEdanos on Tue Jan 08, 2013 1:44 pm

    Hey guys, obviously saying I'm looking for help in general isn't going to help anyone so I'll explain. I've only recently started playing DS PTDE and I'm SL 25 Pyromancer. I'm going for Stone Armour/Brigand Armour, BK Sword/Halberd, Grass Crest Shield, Darkwood Grain Ring, FAP Ring to start with and Pyromancy back-up. I'm still getting the hang of the game, but I do have issues which prevent me from becoming 'amazing'. For example, I cant focus properly, my timing isn't great and I have self control issues, which are all down to disability. The kind of advice I'm looking for is anything character build wise, good places to farm souls, battle strategy fighting style ect for PvE. Thanks for any help you guys can offer!

    Welcome to the DS experience!
    I'm not sure that dark wood grain ring will work out for you as you'll need to have your equip load under 25% to get its effects. That's a tall order with that armour and weapon set. Maybe use Havel's ring to get a faster roll speed?

    The key things for your first playthrough are: keep an eye on your stamina and don't get hit. Sounds obvious, but its when you forget that that you die. Drop shield and run away.

    If you continue to have the difficulties you mention with your disability, why not try a bow/sorcerer build? You can draw enemies with the bow and deal with them at your own pace, and when you get homing soulmass you get a free hit on most enemies even while blocking.

    Let us know how you're doing and summon away!

    if you have an extra ring space (after removing the dark wood grain ring) try using the cloranthy ring. it gives you stamina regen and lets you have a way better shield....like the silver knight shield, my personal favorite. the SKS has VERY good stability, decent elemental resistances, and blocks 100% physical (the GCS only stops 95% iirc).

    the ring is bit hidden but it's easy to nab. if you're interested just google it or i could just post how to get it later.

    well untill you can get any other shield i would suggest the dragon crest shield, you can get it pretty early in the game and it's 100% physical plus some good fire resistance
