    A SL 2 Run

    Post by Dibsville on Fri Mar 22, 2013 4:23 pm

    So, I've decided to make a SL 2. Here's my idea:
    Pyromancer starter, level up DEX to 10.
    That's it, simple as that.
    Now, I've done a TON of SL 1 runs, and I've even beaten the game in 7 hours flat with my SL 1, but they all had Reinforced Club. My idea this time is to go with a Longsword, a literal downgrade from the Club except for the fast recovery on a whiff. I'm going to make this file a Burg invader, but like all my Burg invaders, I'll use unupgraded weapons and no armor. I've also decided to grab the Calamity Ring for use in my invasions, just to make it that much more even. Would anyone like to help? PS3.

    You haven't done a SL1 dragonform run yet? Dragonform actually does more unarmed damage than you can do with the reinforced club at that SL. Moveset sucks a lil though. And less poise damage.
    Anyways, I'm ps3 too, so feel free to ask for my help when you're stuck on a boss or something. PSN is same as here (Elifia)

    Unless you're forgetting about elementals, then you've never done a SL 1 run. Chaos Reinforced Club +5's R2 is the most damage you can possibly do at that level, literally. There is nothing stronger than a Reinforced Club at SL 1, Dragon Forms base damage is like, 300 or something, Lightning Reinforced Clubs base damage is like, 700.
    But yes, I would like some help with a few certain bosses:
    Gaping Dragon; easy fight, just takes FOREVER.
    Capra Demon; another easy fight, but I'd rather not take chances.
    Great Grey Wolf Sif; yet another easy fight, although he can 2-shot me.
    Bed of Chaos; I don't want to have to run back if I die
    Chaos Witch Quelaag; Long fight, easy to get 1-shot if you're not careful
    Black Dragon Kalameet; Never been able to kill him alone on anything lower than SL 30.

    It's 400, it's faster, and it uses a lot less stamina (not to mention the zero weight). I tried both Chaos Reinforced Club +5 and unarmed dragon claws against Artorias, claws did almost double damage. Probably because of Artorias' high defense and the split damage on the club, but still.

    Just gimme a PM on PSN whenever you reach one of those bosses. If I'm available, I'll be there.

    It's only from split damage, if you're going through the DLC, Raw Reinforced Club +5 is your best choice, highest pure physical damage. Also, don't forget that the club has features over dragon claw too, it has the poise break of a greatsword.
