    Quick Question

    Post by MsCherryBlossom on Fri Feb 24, 2012 4:59 pm

    I play mostly for the co-op on Dark Souls but I also accept im going to get invaded sometimes. The last invader I had I barely beat, so can anyone recommend any certain kind of armor or weapon or shield I should use for when someone would invade me?

    Right now I use a Quelaag's Furyblade +5, Lightning Washing Pole +5

    I use the Dark Knight Shield +5

    And armor wise, I use the Beatrice Witch top, Spiked Armor bottoms, Metal Boar helm, and witch gloves.

    Also my stats are about 20 each except for my Dexterity which im trying to boost to 40 since I like using the Furyblade.

    Well, hard to say. To defeat invaders while still in the playthrough, we don't exacly use an specific weapon, but what we have in hand. At later levels, we make PVP builds for dueling. While wearing your battle equipment, is more likely you are going to survive an invasion. Right now, try to upgrade the weapons you already have, if you like you may add some magic as well, pyromancy is good for dextery builds since the casting is faster and its easy to use.

    Btw awesome sign!

    With that DEX you should make a +15 katana.

    Well, yes katanas are cool, but you can use any weapon you like

    For instance, balder side sword is not a katana and scale A with DEX, same for great scythe, rapiers...

    Some spears scale B with is not bad since you can buff them. There are a lot of weapons you may try out.

    I would say to not chose only one specific weapon and try out as many as you can, just be sure to not upgrade one weapon to +15 and use your titanite slab until you have 100% sure thats the weapon you most like in the game

    I haven't played this game in months (Since about early November) I haven't a clue to where I find the guy to sell my Pyromancy. A friend gave me a +15 hand to use it though.

    About the Katana's which kind of Katana would be best? I was thinking of keeping my main weapon for my playthough equipped along with my PVP as a secondary.

    There are 3 only, every one scale good at dex, the washing pole has more range, the iato and the uchigatana have the same range but they have diferent moveset, so depends on your playstyle

    Also, for pyromancy: http://darksoulswiki.wikispaces.com/Quelana+of+Izalith

    You find him in depths. Shortly after you enter and head down you'll find a butcher and then a ramp down into a watery area, through that take a left through the door and he'll call for help. Any of the katana at +15 will work for you, just have to pick which one you like the most as they all roughly have the same stats.

    Err, no

    By diferent movesets I mean, the R1 attacks are the same, but the R2 special attacks are diferent, The Iato is a foward slash and the uchi does a thrust attack.

    It swings in the up/down motion that you usually see when 2handing a longsword or greatsword, but it does this both one or two handed. Iaito's R2 is a dash horizontal strike while the Uchi copies the Washing poles lunge.

    Make sure to roll into him to help him rather than helping him. The other alternative to trying to help him usually results in him dying.....
