    Where are some good upgraded weapons looted?

    Post by Techneeq on Tue Aug 06, 2013 4:22 pm

    So for instance I know you can get a lightning spear in Sen's from the mimic, but are there any other places I can get upgraded weapons? I know you can loot an enchanted falchion somewhere but I can't remember where that is.

    Edit: I am mostly wondering for a Int run so that I can get weapons that are good for int scaling, but I am also curious as for where else you can get other weapons as well.

    Well, there's an occult club in a chest in a room behind a false fireplace in the Anor Londo palace. Other than that and the others you mentioned, none came to mind.

    Aside from enchanted falchion and occult club, the obvious moonlight greatsword tail-cut on seath comes to mind.

    But chunks are the hard part anyway.  You can just buy large shards or green shards, meaning any weapon is easy enough to hit magic +5.

    The gravelord great sword is probably one of the best for early levels and so easy to get,  also can be easily upgraded to plus two.

    Enchanted Falchion is in the Mimic at the end of the Dukes Archives (near Logan).

    You can get a Crystal Halberd from another Mimic in Anor Londo, in fact all Mimics drop upgraded stuff except those two stingey bast**ds above Solaires bonfire in Anor Londo.

    Similar to the Gravelord Sword, you can run straight down to the Everlasting Dragon and dock his tail for a pretty strong heavy weapon, and find enough scales to upgrade it to +3 (or 4 maybe).

    Thanks for all the replies and info guys.

    This run is going to be a MLGS build that some of my friends that are newer to the game wanted to try so I wanted to help them out by finding them some early weapon options, as Seath is quite far into the game.

    As this build only requires 16str/10dex/28int a lot of these options you guys have informed me with would not be able to be wielded properly. In fact I realized after I posted that even the enchanted falchion would not be a viable option.

    It seems the best option early game for them would be to just choose a weapon they like, upgrade it to +5, and then go to Rickert and upgrade it to Magic once they have farmed enough green titanite shards off of slimes.

    I'd go Claymore/Bast*rd Sword. It sets you up for the MLGS with moveset, speed, weight, and is a pretty boss weapon to boot.

    Zwei is an overdone classic that works 2h at 16/10 and can pancake/stagger so easily.  You can even do things like stagger super S in 1 hit with the 2h r2, same thing with capra (it'll interrupt his attacks).  I've beaten O&S with just zwei +5, though that's not "new to the game" territory.  Using it prior to sen's is though, and at +10 it's great in AL too (you can once again pancake silver knights and chain them to death).  He can then just make it lightning and use it in the rare event of someone throwing down a magic barrier or GMB.

    Drake Sword (for early on) is another decent one.

    Yeah, one of my buddies did decide to go the Claymore and he already got it to +5 magic and he's loving it. That is true, it will also get him used to the moveset of the MLGS.

    I did not actually know that you can 2h the Zwei at 16 strength so I guess that would be viable as well if you are able to play without a shield.

    And Drake Sword is an option and indeed very strong early game, but I'm pretty sure that they have already used it before in a run and Drake Sword is a weapon that just gets old after using it once.
