    Need quick weapons hint

    Post by LittleLuden on Fri Feb 24, 2012 5:36 am

    hi guys!

    quick question concerning weapon for catacombs and new londo: i am a strengt/endurance build (both 40, at level 90 now). i want to bring dex to 24 (from 20 now) for silver knights weapons and like to put everything else in vitality (which is at a very low 11 at the moment) till i reach level 120. now i need something for those sceletons and ghosts. i own cursed greatsword of artorias but needed to waste 8 levels for faith. good idea anyway? or better to make something devine? or just use the astora´s straight sword (would just need 4 points in faith?

    so many decisions to be made... what do you think?

    Astora's sword will work, I'm not sure what you mean by just 4 points it only needs 10. If you perfer a different weaponstyle then yes you can make a divine weapon but really you only use it on your first trip through provided you kill all the necromancers.

    thanks for the answer! you´re right, devine weapon is just usefull for that specific task.

    and i got something wrong with my stats. i have 10 faith but would need 14 for astoras sword and 18 for the cursed greatsword. good idea to spend that much in faith?

    It is easier to just make a regular weapon divine at Andre after you get the ember, you don't have to waste any levels that way

    ha, wait! the silver knight spear should also work! this would be the best solution as i will upgrade dex to 24 anyway.

    any weapon can break the skeletons in catacombs, a divine aux effect though keeps them broken...as does just knocking them from the edge instead of hitting them, they may regen, but they won't come back

    the ghosts, just get the transient curses, problem solved, at that point, doesn't matter which weapon use, that and you can block the majority of their attacks as well (all except the grab)

    allright chaps, i think i have it now:

    upgrade dex to 24 (which costs me 4), then use the silver knight spear to kill and keep them broken. just put 2 in faith for heal miracle.

    build should be like that afterwards (at level 120):

    vit.: 35
    str.: 40
    end.: 40
    dex.: 24
    faith: 12

    should usable for pvp, i believe.

    with those stats i dont think it will be too effective for pvp, its deff usable but youre gonna be really outgunned against buff builds maybe for co op it would be a lot better. dont waste points to get the sowrd of artorias since youre not gonna have stats high enought to make it shine, a lightning longsword would be a lot better with those stats.

    thats absolutely right. for pvp i usually use an upgradet lightning zweihander, the dragon tooth, a club or the dk halbert. i was just wondering what to do with these bloody skeletons in the catacombs. i don´t fancy to put to much effort in faith cause i really need a bit of vit, so it´s just all about the least efford for a reasonable tool to deal with this catacombs stage. now i think just upgrading dex a little to use a silver knight spear there is the best compromise.

    i never thought of playing pvp or coop in the beginning, so i startet to build a character for the campaign. now that changed and i try to adapt this guy as good as possible.
