    Who Was Your First Love?

    Post by theGentleman on Tue Sep 03, 2013 4:43 pm

    In terms of non-super weapons that you learned to depend on in your first play through or two. The weapons that are irrelevant now but blew your mind at the time.
       
    Mine was the titanite Catch Pole.

        My first few runs were without the wiki or youtube because there is nothing I love more than a surprise. Therefore, I never learned to love the Drake Sword or Merchant's Katana like most people.
        For me, landing a titanite Catch Pole just beneath Andre was the best day of my life. Compared to my +3 straight sword it would rip through enemies. Sadly, I almost never score one anymore and when I do I just stash it away because the spiked bat is my new go-to for low level play.
         Runner up was Partizan.

    And you?

    The scimitar and the dagger. Those were the only weapons that I used during my first playthrough, never used them for PVP though.

    The Zweihander.

    Someone told me about it, and I used it for almost all of my playthrough.

    Fire Halberd, from the moment i found it to O&S, including the catacombs and tomb of the giants. if i had to pick one weapon it woud be this.
    But then i switched to Gravelord Sword because of the moveset and being upgraded with twinkling titanite.


    Now i'm using Zweihander, and i doubt i will change weapons again for PvE.
    The poise break on that...i even made a divine Zweihander so i don't have to separate from my favorite anti-boss weapon when i fight Nito.
    For faster mobe i use a black knight sword, or a katana.

    The eagle shield should get a mention here because it's what i mainly used along the halberd.

    My first true love was the helberd. I didn't watch any vids or read any tutorials, so having that far of a reach paired with a big shield was my dream come true.

    Now it's the Zweihander. That much that I want a character build around that weapon.

    The claymore.  It was before the nerf, and once my first time character-warrior, slung it over his shoulder, it was love at first sight.  He still uses it today.

    Mine was this one girl, her name was the Qualeggs FurySword. She was so hot. She set my heartbeat going twice the speed. 

    I had actually gotten her as a gift by a low level dragon, on my first play through. And I used her all the way to the end, even on Qualegg herself.

    Battle Axe, that thing saved me in the beginning of the game and I kept it until Sen's.

    I loved the Phos Pole. I couldn't get past Armor Spider until I started a playthrough as  a Royal (aka, easy-mode) and lucked out in the tower by getting the pole. Running around with that thing and Kris Blade = lots of dead dreglings.
        Unfortunately, I didn't catch on that it was near useless in PvP and wound up getting murdered by everybody with a Sharp Katana (ie, everybody).
        Thanks for rousing those fond memories.

    The Claymore was my favorite weapon for a long time, then I found the MLGS and that was it for an even longer time.

    I'm using the claymore again now.

    I loved the chaos blade for just how badass it was.

    I also became an instant fan of the astora straight sword. Not the best weapon ever, but i really enjoyed using it and it served me pretty well on my first playthrough

    My best gal at first was my enchanted claymore. I first picked up the game and without any help from the wikis, decided that Sorcerer was the best choice to start my first play through. Before I figured out how spells worked, I had found the claymore and gotten my stats up to use it. As the game went on I figured out magic, but kept the claymore and built it up and it ended up being my main weapon. I miss that old girl sometimes...

    @Serious

    I think the Astora Straight Sword is the ultimate B-grade weapon. It's so stubbornly resistant to being flashy in any regard but can be a very effective primary until Anor Londo.
       Instant availability is always nice and the moveset is as meat & potatoes as it comes but you don't need much else, I remember feeling unstoppable when I learned to use it's leap attack against those pesky shield/spear hollows - one hit kill.
        After getting it with the master key, I had a griefer drop another one in the upper 'Burg of my Dex/Faith file and I was dual wielding them for a while - silly but fun.

    I think my first love was the Black Knight Sword. It dropped from that fist black knight in the burg, and I loved it as i absolutely decimated everything.

    Mine would have to be the Silver Knight Straight Sword.
    I got in in my first playthrough,before I had learned to get the most out of damage scaling and it was just great.Good damage,quick,easy to upgrade and a nice moveset to boot.

    butcher knife was the first weapon i decided to level +15 and was amazed at the dmg it dealt. took my zweihänder divine and my man-serpent-sword lightning beforehand...beginners mistake i guess. the butcherknife took me straight to ng++ while staying @lvl100

    I've had many one boss stands before I found my first love, which was like many other newbies the Uchigatana. I found it on my second official playthrough when I foolishly deemed the undead merchant useless. To be honest I pirated the game at first, but around when I got the lordvessel I owed it to the game to actually buy it (which means a lot coming from a weathered pirate such as myself). I was pleasantly surprised by the multiplayer aspect of the game and totally hooked ever since.

    I traded my Uchigatana in for the great scythe and lifehunt scythe later in the game and haven't looked back yet.

    First ever playthrough I stumbled across the Balder Side Sword. Had a fully upgraded Raw version and a +15 one. Took me through the most of the game. Then swapped it out for the Silver Knight Straight Sword. SKSS was nice, but at the time I was using DEX weapons since I always liked the speed factor better. BSS got me through Gwyn, after like 5 deaths from recklessness.

    My first love would have to be the Black knight sword. I got it pretty early on (Burg) and spent about an hour leveling to use it.

    The Washing Pole was an eye-catcher for me. Strange thing is, apart from just holding it, I've never actively used it. Not even once.

    My first character used a Zaphander, the Elite Knight Armor, and the Crest Shield/Black Knight Shield. I leveled that character until he could ninja-flip with all that (using a claymore instead of a zwei) before I deleted him.
