    ps3, sl60, 1st playthrough mistakes

    Post by leonidas2600 on Sat Feb 16, 2013 3:31 pm

    So here I am, first playthough ever. Started as Knight. Enjoying the game when at some a very nice soul gave me this nice present "Black Knight Greataxe".

    Now, I was pretty sure that I was doing a strength build however since it was my first game I was already around level 30 without much though to stats. So I reached sl63 with the following stats

    v25, a10, e25, str36, d16, r10, i9, f10

    giving an emphasis on strength in order to be able and use the greataxe.
    I also upgraded the greataxe a bit and it's a serious blow dealer. However, I feel that the coop/random summon thing was taken away from me since now I get summoned very rarely. Is that normal?

    What area of the game are you in? only people within 10 soul levels of you can summon you. So if you go to the undead church (to fight bell gargoyals) where mostly soul level 10-20 players will be, you will be massively out lvling them. But other places like sens fortress (big castle you access after you ring 2 bells) and anor londo (city just after sens fortress) you should get summoned left and right at thos places. I always go to sens on my sl 60 steel knight cos-play.

    Currently, I'm w8ing at the Anor Londo bonfire but I have only been summoned a couple of times thus far.

    Anyway, does anyone have any advice on this build? Any particular weapons/shields I should look out for maybe?

    It depends on what you wanna do with the build. Right now I'm doing a fast rolling strength build rocking the same axe(working towards the Demon's Greataxe), if you wanna go that path you would do well to up endurance, which you should be raising anyway. Another path to go would be tanking with heavy armor, in which case you'd need to pump some serious vitality.
