    Anybody SL1 cooping? (PS3)

    Post by chantienyee on Sat Apr 06, 2013 4:49 am

    Hey guys.
    I'm just starting up my first ever SL1 playthrough and I'm anticipatorily scared. Is anyone else doing this on PS3? I'd love to coop some of the tougher bosses especially...

    Add me. I have a SL1 which has started NG+. I'm almost done with my caveman run on another account.

    I've remade my SL 6 into a SL 3. My SL 6 is at the kiln. My SL 3 is just starting out.

    But, I'm not the best PvE player. The main reason why I got my SL 6 to the Kiln is stubbornness. But, if I can do it, so can you. The only place I summoned help was in Anor.

    Anyone down for some Gaping Dragon (and maybe Quelaag after) co-op action? I'm chilling at the Depths bonfire... Not gonna count on Solaire for this one :p

    +5 ascended flame Great Chaos Fireball with PW and bellowing/CoD can 1 shot Orns.

    Feels a little unfair but Biggie and Smalls are really a huge roadblock when your END is so low (can't block nothing)

    I don't think it can one-shot him unless your RTSR is activated as well. Have you tried it without RTSR?

    I could only hit about an 800 on the Undead Dragon with PW +4 Ascended with a Great Fireball

    But Orns has really bad Fire Defense, so it might be possible.

    I had no trouble with Gaping Dragon, surprisingly, but I'm up against Quelaag next. Lemme know if you're down. I'll probably play at around 4 PM Eastern Time (Sunday). Mildred will probably help more than Solaire if it comes down to it...

    Also, any advice on equipment I should have by this point would be wicked. I plan to grab the crimson set next (before or after Quelaag, depending on co-op situation). Right now I'm using:
    -Hollow Soldier Shield and Armour
    -Gargoyle Helm
    -Pyromancer boots and manchette?
    -Havel's Ring and Ring of Favour and Protection
    -+10 Reinforced Club
    -+7-ish Pyromancy Flame? (2x Fireball)

    I think not as I'm always in PW+RTSR for bosses on my level 1

    I uh hmmm. Well I could test it if I had someone before Orns and Smog with the flame ready....but I don't.

    Gear thats good for SL1 . Dingy stuff. It's light and upgrades WELL. That's about it. Crown of Dusk is important for any pyroing you'll be doing. Grass Crest is very usefull for it's buff as well.

    Don't forget your best ranged option is a light crossbow. I'd make that club into lightning or Chaos if you keep manatees on you. You'll probably want to finish Kellogs before making the club fire. And since you in Btown you can grab some green shards, the Chaos ember after kellog with the suicide jump, get the red chunks in the great hallow (maybe get lucky with a lizard too) and the Asylum revisited and get a +7or8 Chaos reinforced club really soon. (Which even without pyro will make short work of Smough)

    Hmm. I'm used to coop, where the bosses have more health. I can one shot O, but with Dark Bead and RTSR. Maybe you can one shot with Chaos Fireball when you're doing it solo?

    Anyway, the best thing for SL 1, IMO, is a heater shield and elemental fast weapons (high DPS) (and pyro as well). 4-kings (and Nito) = tanking R1. Seath = Black Fire Bombs. Gwynn = tank, parry, HR riposte.

    Stone Armor can be your absolute best friend.

    Yeah, I'm using the light crossbow for things like the mosquitos. I haven't been to Vamos or Giant Blacksmith yet, but I was thinking I would go Lightning reinforced club first? I could run in and get fire, but I figured that wouldn't help much for Quelaag. Should I do that for Sen's? I'm also using resins when needed if that's what the "good luck with that" was trying to say.

    Dingy set sounds helpful, but I already killed Lautrec >____< I was thinking of doing a hand axe one element and reinforced club the other. Maybe fire hand axe and lightning club?

    I'm also desperately trying Power Within for the first time on Quelaag, but she's proving more scary than usual with low health and lots of humanity and souls to lose.. I used hyper mode a lot in Demon's Souls, but have yet to try it in Dark Souls -- a bit more dangerous. Also I have to go get the Read Tearstone Ring if I'm gonna try that. Maybe not for Quelaag...

    I'm ready for co-op...
    Added you all.

    You really can't do lightning until Anor anyway, so go fire and have a +10 for Quelaag.

    Okay. I ran in and grabbed a +5 fire reinforced club and made my light crossbow fire +1 post-Iron Golem. I've soloed up until now, except the first two bosses, but I'm thinking Smough and Ornstein are gonna cause some trouble, so I'm looking for help again at 4 Eastern Time on Monday.

    I've never added people on PSN before. Should I just message one of you guys if you're online to co-op? I saw Fry11 a bit online today, but that was just after I beat Quelaag.



    EDIT: and a +3 lightning reinforced club now too just waiting to fight the duo. Thanks for the tips on Ornstein's fire weakness, btw. Gonna try to exploit that.

    I don't know if I'll be home from my appointments by 4est.

    If I can catch you though Since I NG+ my SL1 I can drop you my spare dingy set if you want.

    Also Crossbows should always go +15 the firedamage from making it fire wont happen unless the bolt also does firedamage....which doesn't exist. Lightning+lightning bolts can work but it's damage is so close to +15 and heavy bolts are much less expensive.

    I guess I'm going to have to step up my game.

    I've started ng+ as a SL1 last night and I keep expecting the game to be easier than it is. That's right; I keep dying.

    I have the dingy set up to a +9; in fact most of the gear I use is almost maxed out, but I find my character is sluggish. The character I've been playing lately has been naked and I miss the speed of movement.

    I've reached Andre, but I should reach O&S by the afternoon. I just need to slow down and progress.

    Thanks man.
    I'll take you up on that dingy set (is it the best for sl1?)
    Also thanks for the tip on useless elemental crossbow. I feel like a noob.
    Is your PSN Jansports?

    Thanks to Nictimos for the epic O+S battle happy
