    Lord Soul opinions

    Post by DaFarmerProject on Mon Apr 29, 2013 9:52 am

    In what order to you usually do the lord souls? Everyone seems to disagree with me, but my order is
    1. New Londo/ Four Kings
    2. Lost Izalith/Bed of Chaos
    3. Tomb of the Giants/ Nito
    4. Duke's Archives/ Seath

    I feel like it's the most logical order. Four kings first because they're easiest in my opinion, (plus Darkwraiths), Izalith to get the sunlight maggot, TotG because it's much harder and sunlight maggot helps out a ton, and last Duke's Archives because it's hardest in my opinion.

    usually i take on Londo Ruins and the Four Trolls before i finish off the gargoyles, then i go in pretty much the same order as you, the only difference is that i take on Duke's Archives and Seath first if i'm working on an INT build.

    Everyone I see does Duke's first, and Londo last. That's crazy, the Crystal soldiers and golems mongle my balls. New Londo is byfar the easiest to me, I've never lost to the 4 Kings. Granted, I've never done an INT build either so I don't know.

    The logical order to me when I did my first playthrough was Seath first and then 4 Kings then BoC and then Nito but that's probably because Seath was the closest to where I was but that was awfully hard and I got cursed after first encounter with seath where you have to die. But it all depends on what playthrough I'm doing really..

    if all the best goodies for an INT build weren't in Duke's, i would do all the other areas first.

    Seems the logical way is dependent on where you'll place the LordVessel. My first toons, always placed with Frampt, then either did 4 kings or seath next ( because the AL firekeeper tells you of the archives), lost izalith then catacombs/tog.

    Then I used the wiki to find out where these reds were becoming reds, hugged that LV and did 4kings, then Seath, tog will be next, then boc ( I hate that one). Yup still workin through the game on my first DW, lol.

    The Tomb
    New Londo
    Dukes
    Lost Izalith

    It's mostly about which one I can power through the quickest. By now I'm used to the Tomb to the point where I can just roll around in the dark until I get to the bonfire and the skull lantern.

    New londo first to get the red eye orb.

    Then izalith for the chaos weapons and to farm the titanite demon and sunlight maggot.

    It's a roll of the dice then on dukes or tomb. I see Rynn run through the tomb blind on the stream and it blows my mind everytime, i take a go and it generally goes very very bad.

    my order goes like this.
    New Londo to become a DW.
    Duke's because i want the trident for invasions.
    Tomb of the giants because i tend to buy things from Patches
    Bed of Chaos is always last because i hate that freaking boss fight so much Then again, on a'lot of my playthroughs i don't even kill the bed of chaos if its a pvp build at least.

    3. The one I didn't do in the above
    4. Nito

    Unless it's a Faith build.
    1. Four Kings
    2. Nito
    3. Seath

    I go by easiest one I can take.
    1: New Londo. Kill them and unlock the DW
    2: Lost Izalith for the long journey and the bosses to kill and I can afford the lost of my stuff to the BoC
    3: Tomb. Not a fan of total darkness and the skeletons are the issue not Nito himself.
    4: Archives: The worst part I never got the real hang of. I just keep dying there and Each death means a long fight ahead.

    Archives normally go through very slow, those crystal soldiers are about the only guys that i don't have parrying down for and then there's seaths tail, i've been crushed by it so many times, that if he ever went to hospital for colonoscopy and they had no medical records they'd call me because i could draw and accurate picutre of his anus.

    My order is as such:

    1: BoC.
    2: Nito.
    3: Seath.
    4: Four Kings.

    I hate BoC so much, I want to get rid of it as quickly as possible. Nito is just an nuisance, so I take care of him next. I take Seath on as the third because I like the lore surrounding him (too bad he is so easy, assuming you are not trying to cut of his tail).
    I like to fight Sif after I have gone through the DLC, which is why I leave Four Kings for last.

    What order is best for PvP build? Currently working on a Str/End Hunter.

    I imagine new londo first for the red eye and titanite chunks\hopefully slabs then whatever suits you best. depending on what weapon\armour upgrades you want\need for your build. Although izalith is generally quieter invasionwise compared to dukes and tombs, so that next.

    My opinion is the following:

    For non-DW:

    Spoiler:
    First go to Pinwheel so you can get the Rite of Kindling. Now go activate the bonfire in the Tomb of the Giants so you won't have to go through catacombs again. Now that you're already in TotG anyway, might as well kill Nito.

    Now, go to Firelink Altar and drop in Nito's soul. Talk to the Firelink fire keeper to kindle it to 20 for free. Now go kill 4 Kings.

    From here on it doesn't really matter. Duke's Archives and Lost Izalith are both tedious. Just do them in whatever order you feel like.

    For DW:

    Spoiler:
    Go kill Pinwheel, continue to the first bonfire in TotG, maybe get kicked into the pit by Patches and rescue Reah (don't forget to kill Petrus). You can't kill Nito yet though because his gate is still closed. Warp out to Undead Parish, kindle it to 20, then go kill 4 Kings. Then kill Nito. Now either Duke's Archives or Lost Izalith, it doesn't matter, they're both tedious.

    It changes depending on what I need.

    1. 4K are almost always 1st. Amber, chunks, comp bow, slab if you're lucky
    2. BoC Hate this thing. I just get it over with. Worst part of it all is feeding 30 hu to the witch. Sleep
    3. ToG Especially if I haven't killed pinwheel yet
    4. Dukes (unless I'm a mage, then 1st)

    Four kings first, usually because I need the v large ember though...

    Rest are random, but usually Seath 2nd, BoC 3rd and Nito last (as i have to get maggot first)

    For me it's usually random. I normally save the four kings for last, but in other playthroughs I could kill them earlier. Seath normally goes first, then it's usually a toss up between BoC and Nito.

    It's not really an idea of who I go after first, but when I get to them, how I take them down is more important.
