    I would say get rid of the drake sword and start upgrading a good weapon but on the other hand youve killed the blacksmith so thats going to be quite tricky, if you havent invested much into this playthrough i would probably start fresh

    If you want to carry on then your not going to be really weapon dependant so bump vitality to atleast 20 same with dex opens up wider range weapons, and either faith or int so you have some magic or miracles to use to back up weaker weapons

    (edit) after that just steadily increase the attributes your focusing on up to your desire overal sl, try not to go over 40 in one attribute to get the best you can out of each

    The two lines are both Flame and Magic Now. The Magic being the Blacksmith in new Londo. The Flame Smithery in the catacombs.

    Going to Youtube to get to the skeleton blacksmith for the catacombs would be wise. New Londo blacksmith is close by.

    As for quick weapons, a curved greatsword, a greatsword, or a curved sword would be recommended to you, for fast hitting weapons for good damage. Katana as well, although i consider it a sub-species towards the curved Sword, as they are both generally the same (except in bleed, moveset, and texture). Good luck.

    you killed andrei? that sucks for you. grass crest shield is not that good for pve, i recommend the balder shield or any shield with 100 damage block and good stability. if you have the occult club from anor londo, downgrade it to +5 devine so you can kill the skellies in the catacombs so they dont regenerate, after you kill the necromacers they wont but for the first time in the catacombs it helps alot to bring a devine weapon.

    This is for the catacombs, in the absense of divine Weapons. If you ever wanted to travel to the Catacombs without divine, of course. it is not necessary, but helps at times. However, once you know how to remove the necromancers with ease, divine is unnecessary.

    But a club is recommended for the departure, of any kind.

    Ya, it helps. I know the catacombs and the tombs by heart. Now, even though the guide recommends it, i don't get a bow or even the jagged ghost blade anymore. I jsut go with a mace or club, with 99 firebombs. I usually kill all the necromancers with the firebombs if they are at a distance, or I knock skeletons down with the club, into the pit. Catacombs is always the first place I go when I make a new character now. Mostly due for the Rite of Kindling and Silver Serpent Ring. Helps in the long Run, I say.

    yeah, same here. its a challenge with an sl 4. the catacombs and tomb of the giants are my favorite locations in the game, everything else felt so uninspired or just a copy of places from demon's souls.

    Ya. wish i could kill the thief when i first seem him with a new character. I usually have to wait, till he become a merchant (the armor he sees I always use now).

    Just remember to upgrade your weapon to +5 and get some bonewards in case from the Blacksmith (skeletal). Helps when fighting the Skeletal Giants mostly naked. Of course, i now only have to fight and kill three of them in total (and the Black Knight for the shield). the Latern from a necromancer also helps. Fire Weapons not so much, though.

    i have put 25 hours in this char but ive already played thru it once so i know where everything is. Example i beat that boss the 2 once on the bridge at lvl 1 with a sourcer. On my main i was like 15 sad so a lil smarter. Nothing ive gotten i cant get again.

    Is that blacksmith that important? I just saved up 20 k souls sad Finilly today the dragon appeard so i can shoot him LOL now i gotta start over.

    I never patch my games

    Hmm what to do

    I have a low level sorcer. IF i started over id use him but i dunno what to put in for points and weps etc. I like pyro. Just dont wanna start over.

    There is no other options to upgrade your armor and wep exept that blacksmith?

    You did not read my post? The other blacksmith of New Londo, if youa re a sorcerer of intelligence, can help make you a magic weapon without the need of the one you killed. can also get Fire Weapons from the blacksmith in the Catacombs.

    im afraid so if you want to go above plus 5 normal weapons so rules out 10 and 15 normal same with boss weapons as you need a plus 10 to upgrade with soul but all other paths are open with other blacksmiths like fire, lighting so on. so i wouldnt invest more in strength or dexterity than the requirements need to weild the weapon.

    if you were to start again its pretty easy to speed run up to where you ae in about hour or so, but starting again depends entirely on what build you want really?

    Do you remember the skeletons of Firelink? They are between the shrine and catacombs.

    No, you don't have to restart. You just have to improvise. To see the different magic and fire weapon builds, find 'upgrade' in the wiki to se the benefits it gives.

    You can not make divine/occult weapons, as well as make harder physical versions from your +5, like +10 or +15 normal. However you can get a + 10 magic or fire, or get + 5 chaos or enchanted. The +5 being the less based damage, and more scaling.

    You can not buff weapons by using resin or such, but your weapons will do more than physical alone, which you can use other things in your slots other than buffers, till NG+. then, when NG+ starts, your character can get weapons from the blacksmith you killed in NG.

    It is your choice, I am just trying to help. if you start over, you have more choice in the matter of upgrades. And yes, better understanding does help a lot in dark souls.

    Whatever path you choose, just remember to play smart. If you use intelligence and weapons of dexterity, use sorcery and magic weapons like rapiers. If of faith and strength, use heavy weapons with miracle magic. Put your points in right, and play safe.

    By the way, you should patch your game. You get experience from the skeletons if you do.

    Pyromancer is good. Cleric and wanderer are also good. Pyromancy for high-resistance to environment clothing and lowest level for better selection. Cleric for miracle and one of the most decent weapons to start with, in my opinion. The wanderer for similar stats as Pyromancer, but more to dexterity than strength.

    Whatever usage of weaponry you favor, one of the three should work. For sorcery, just pick wanderer or Pyromancer. You can get a catalyst and sorcery spell from the New Londo blacksmith at the very start.
