    what exactly is your build?

    Edit: nevermind. You have 44 int so I'd say look into MLGS, MLBH and enchanted weapons. Enchanted pike! xD

    i sometimes mess around with the MLGS but it just doesnt seem powerful enough imo.


    would enchanted weapons really be good ? im running low on ore so i want to make good decisions when upgrading

    The MLGS' strength is stunlocking.

    splitting damage isn't always the best, but enchanted gear scales with int, and I love the pike to death. Another option is to use lightweight +14/15 gear and buff them.

    Balder side sword is an awesome option for the 2nd option, so is ricard's rapier and katana's in general.

    kinda confused, how come for most weapons lightning always comes out with a higher attack rating then enchanted or magic even if my int is high ? And how come people never use fire, the attack rating is even higher then lighting but ive only seen one person use it since ive bought the game

    ease of getting it. You wanna deal with getting to vamos and upgrading to fire, or strolling to the giant and getting lightning?

    Remember, it's mostly split damage so it's gonna be weaker than pure physical damage.

    http://tinyurl.com/cmhw7ry Here's what I did just now, with BSS as your main. 297 physical plus 328 from buffing.

    would the sunlight straight sword be a good replacement for BSS ? or are the movesets different ? and what about the estoc

    try using the man serpent sword, imo its the best gs in the game.

    The only difference is the heavy attacks. BSS are both stabs, the SSS is the standard longsword stab upward cut. The estoc is a beast when buffed!

    ill look into upgrading the BSS, +15 is the only way to keep the weapon "buffable" correct ?

    That looks like a Str/Int build, why do you need 20 Dex? I would equip MSGS with 27 or 40 Str.

    Actually does this look a bit better ? thinking about just deleting this toon and start over

    http://darksouls.itsthatguy.com/?c=UHlyb21hbmNlciwxMjAsNDAsMTQsNDAsMzEsMTgsMTIsNDAsOA==

    i kind of want to use the black knight sword/greatsword/halberd. but i feel like later on these become obsolete.

    would it be best to go with this or drop dex to 16 and throw those points into strength ? or should i take some a off from vit/end and make them fit into BKGS,BKH requirements ?

    If you want to use a BK weapon then those stats are fine. Maybe sacrifice a bit of End for 44 Int.

    Stats like End, Str and Dex are better to cap at 40. Stats like Vit, Int and Faith are better caping them at 50. 44 Int is for Crystal Soul Spear.

    Much as I hate to say it, it's overused for a reason. Lightning is almost universally the lowest resistance on armor.

    That being said, the magic damage on enchanted IS higher then either AR on a Lightning. Since AR uses Increasing returns, you might get about the same or better results with it...
