    First Play Through - what level ?

    Post by Danthuyer on Mon Jan 23, 2012 12:33 am

    Hey all.

    First time poster and player here, and I LOVE THIS GAME !!

    I am currently lvl 71 and on my first play through and about to take on the centipede and demon boss in demon ruins.

    What level where you when you completed your first run through ? am I on track or have I taken too much time playing around learning things (which is not a bad thing)

    My toon is going to be dex based as I currently have 4+ Quelaags Furysword (looking for my last demon titanite :evil:) however I decided to make the Darkmoon Bow which required an extra 4 points into faith and I am disappointed with the results >< On my next play through I am thinking of adding some magic to my arsenal... or will it be too hard and I should start now ?

    I finished around level 90, I think.

    About magic: because this is your first character, I'd suggest leveling your current character to try out various spells. If you like those spells, then you can create a new character that can use those spells to better effect. Another option would be to test out all the different weapon types with your current character, then create a second character to test our all the different types of magic. After extensive testing with both characters, you can then create a third that embodies your prefered playstyle, whether it be pure melee, pure magic, or a bit of both.

    when to progress to the next playthrough depends on how you like to play and what goals you want to achieve in the game, really.

    If you like pvp and are good at it you will be able to farm plenty of souls for further leveling up quite easily in NG. In my case, apart from having done almost everything and collected all the items in NG i had difficulty to source souls for levelling up because i mainly do co-op and NG did not offer too many souls from co-op as at some point i needed about 80k ish souls for each level-up.

    Also you might consider that some spells/miracles you can only get once per playthrough, so if you want 2 WoG for example... you know what you have to do! Also for some trophies you must obviously finish the game. Your choice really.

    For the record, i personally moved to NG+ at around lvl 85 on my main char.

    I was even a bit higher, lvl 90 I think. And it didn´t hurt since NG+ is really quite hard at the beginning. It takes getting used to fight enemies that you easily one-shotted in NG.

    I'm currently lvl 71 on my first play through. I'm 1/4 of the way through the lord bosses. So, I'm probably a little ahead of you level wise.

    But, our levels seem like the average.

    there will be a respawning headless demon that will drop 2 demon titanite in Lost Izalith (after you defeat Demon Centipede). It respawns too. So you'll be able to finish the quelaags upgrade.

    appreciate the input guys happy

    okay then so I am not dragging the chain then as far as lvl goes, I am happy with my progression as some fights can still give me a challenge at times especially when going in with the wrong damage type.

    Thanks for the heads up on that re spawning demon, I actually managed to get the 4th piece last night from snuggly as I hadn't given them one of the prism's for the titanite so I now have 5+

    That's good to know about NG+ I think I will def go into that and start to play PvP a bit more once I get stronger, I am still learning to get consistent backstabs.
