    Stupid Balder Side Sword!

    Post by xXDaemonarchXx on Sun Jan 22, 2012 8:16 pm

    Okay, with all this talk about the BBS, I realized I've never actually played with it to any extent. So I decided to farm one up. I've been killing these damn balders in the parish for 2 hours now! Two questions, please tell me that it's worth it and I'm not wasting my time and from your experience, where is the best place to farm it?
    (haha! you thought it was another trolling thread didnt you!)
    :evil:

    It's worth a try, if you're on xbox and can connect with me I have one I'd give away. You want the ones with the balder shields, only ones that I know of that drop it, probably around the church as there are 3 of them but 2 are on top of sens.

    When I was working on my platinum trophy I farmed them for hours also for the drop. I finally got one. It was the last thing I needed. The sword is good but it is not for everyone either. There are similar swords you can get. It is really your call.

    i'd say don't bother

    its just like a normal straight sword your best bet for a dex build is a katana

    now if you like straight sword try the silver knight sword

    Do you mean BSS? Because, unless there's a weapon in Dark Souls people refer to as the BBS, I just keep thinking of the Blueblood Sword...

    I've actually never used that sword. I think it's 1 of only 2 weapons I haven't tried in Dark Souls; the other being the Titanite Catch Pole, which I NEVER got yet.

    I read mixed news online if it was needed or not for the trophy, so I just went ahead and got every weapon in the game. Also, the Channeler's Trident was the last weapon I got and I got the Balder Side Sword right before. So, maybe I did not need to get it for the trophy. The printed guide does not list it as an item for the platinum.

    Also, I agree with Scudman_Slayer, if you are having a hard time getting it I would just use one of the swords he has listed. It is not a bad sword though.

    Titanite Catch pole may look good in the hands of a titanite demon but is CRAP. The r2 is more slow than anything you ever used in the game.

    YES! I am not the only one who thinks it's almost worthless ~.~ Still unsure if I'll focus on DEX or mix them both on my new char. The BSS looks more appealing the more I think about it.

    Thanks for all the advice, my master plan was to post about not getting it for a long time, then I figured it might drop for me faster like the other guys post....and it worked! Still took over 2 hours though.....:-( I'm still looking for a good dex weapon for my faith/dex build though. The BSS was pretty nice, but meh. I'm not sure, any suggestions?

    BSS is good for +15 as has A in Dex scaling.. though katanas have better raw power, exact same scaling at +15 so damage difference will only be at most 50-60 i think..

    If you want occult/faith weapon use Claymore or Painting guardian sword. those get A scaling on occult and B on divine for faith, so very good weapons for those upgrade paths.

    My Mage build kicks ass with his Enchanted Balder Side sword.

    I love the weapon.

    I'm honestly surprised to find it is a rare drop. My very first toon, (a total mess of a build), ended up rocking a Lightning Balder, and I feel like one has dropped in every playthrough for me, since I recall having to talk myself out of wielding it again, lol.
