    Ideas for challenge run

    Post by Peaceful Wollyhop on Wed Feb 06, 2013 2:10 pm

    Just want some ideas for hard challenge runs to do. Would prefer it was set equipment: only use these two or 3 weapons and this armour. Otherwise I always end up using the same weapons on every character. Maybe a level cap as well. ta

    what equipment would you want me to use up to the iron golem as I would need his soul first. Caestus perhaps?

    Up until you have access to the Core of an Iron Golem I think the Cestus would be the perfect substitute.

    Try this. Only two rules:

    Soul Level 25
    Only use Daggers

    I'm going to be doing a Great Club/Plank Shield run. Probably a set armor set like sack, Smough's body, catarina gauntlets, hollow warrior waistcloth.

    deprived start
    no other items other than estus and humanity
    no equipment only cloranthy ring and calamity ring and sack as headgear
    weapons are any parrying weapon on left hand and any weapon on right hand.

    i tried this one, (except of course starting as deprived and the 2 rings), being that i am not a professional, i died more times than through my current playthrough trying to make it to and past sen's fortress.

    I just did a short bow only challenge which was fun, made parts very easy but some bosses ie manus, 4 kings, gwyn were a serious problem. Learning to roll was a must. Check out my link for the vids below.Do something u want and what you enjoy as its your game and parts will be difficult with restricted equipment.

    Get someone to transfer a Chaos blade for your newly born character.

    Only that weapon allowed. Estus flasks to be used only on bosses and no more than 10.

    Oh, and you have to kill all enemies in all areas, no skipping through.

    --

    Makes for fun times trying to save your health using ripostes and backstabs on normal enemies since the blade takes life away on normal hits. And on bosses when you can't normally do those measures, so you have to make every hit count.
