    Best quality weapon against the 4kings

    Post by VaDoom on Fri Aug 16, 2013 6:21 am

    NG+4 with a quality build 27/40 SL100, no pyro/sorcery/miracle.

    I don't have time to dodge anything, I just stack poise, grass, resine, ignore the hits and R1 spam while healing. I tried fast weapons like straight swords, heavier like bastard sword and even heavier like greatsword. But it seems I can't do it this way, or maybe I'm doing something so wrong I can't see.
    My best results are with straight swords (4/5 of their full life). They deal less damages but consume less stamina and are faster. In the end, I can chain 7 2HR1 or 10 1HR1 (If I remember correctly).

    Come on 4kids, I have killed you more than 50 times with every sl/NG+(n), and even with a similar build on the same NG, why can't I this time? Is it because I don't have any pyro/sorcery/miracle.

    I'd rather not use a phantom, but I might resign and use someone in the end. I already tried with Beatrice, she can help when her HSM actualy hits, but that's not enough. I tried with one or two random phantoms but it was even worse. I guess most don't expect NG+4 and some die even before the boss.
    Before asking for your personal phantom help, what would you do in this situation?

    Thank you

    Claymore with any of the resins?, Can get some decent combos with the claymore.

    You can kinda cheat with summons, if you summon and get through the fog door before they arrive the boss's do not get a health buff. If you time it right with beatrice and you can get through the door before she arrives. Not 100% on player summons and the health buff, plus there's a chance of failed with them and no way to go back and resummon.

    I didn't try the Claymore, but the Bastard sword with resins seemed similar to me.
    I'll try just in case I missed a difference.
    Oh, and good thing for the cheat with Beatrice.
    I'll try it too.
    thx for the advice.

    The AR seems slightly lower than with a straight sword with these stats, but maybe better DPS?
    I don't use falchion +15, so I will have to make one happy
