    LvL 120 again?

    Post by Glueguy on Sat Mar 24, 2012 4:11 am

    Hi, my name is Glueguy, and I'm a build addict.

    Doesn't really matter the game. Number crunching and theory crafting comes second nature to me and I freaking love it. It's almost more fun than playing. But I'm having a really rough time turning the builds from idea into a character. LvL 120 seems further and further away every time I have to try and level someone up to it. God forbid I start to partake in the 200+ pvp scene that seems to be starting up around here.

    Is there a "quick" way to get a character up to 120? New game to new game plus seems to be the most reliable. But I (like most of you I'm sure) have a full time job, friends who don't own dark souls (still wondering why I bother with these guys anymore) and family commitments on top of a need for dark souls.

    Any advice? Tips? Maybe something I looked over that would make my life easier?

    The Phalanx in the Painted world of Ariamas, if you WotG them you can get around 10k souls every thirty seconds with the Symbol of Avarice and Silver Serpent Ring, as well on NG+ even better. Farming those guys is how I did it on my faith toon.

    Wear high poise armor if you are going with a Pyro AoE or Gravelord dance, you'll probably take a hit or two, but both have worked for me on my GL.

    I would say it takes me about 12 hours to make a 120, you could cut that in half if your willing to bb glitch.

    Using Tolvo's 30 seconds per run and 10k return the time it would take from lvl X to 120 goes something like this give or take a couple minutes


    X= 40: 2 hours 47 min
    X= 70: 2 hours 20 min
    X=100: 1 hour 15 min

    So if you can get to the painted world in a reasonable amount of time and have some way to get to the phalanx, kill it, and get back to the fire. It is still gonna take you 2 hours and some.

    Thought I'd share the math here in case we have other options open up and then we can have more concrete numerical proof of what is going to work the best.

    Had a thought and needed to edit this line in: At a certain level it is likely going to be faster to just PvP in the painted world or PvP while you farm. You are spamming WoG anyway......
