    A fun build you all might want to try.

    Post by T-King-667 on Tue May 22, 2012 9:51 pm

    This build is in no way intended for pvp but a challenge for single player and just a golly experiance overall. So the Build is called scavenger and there is no leval cap for it. the objective is to start the game as deprived and as soon as your fineshed with the undead asylum un equipt (or throw away) both your club and sheild and from that point on useing only your fist's or your sword hilt you have sto scavange your armour/weps/talismons/staffs/mericles/spells etc from fallen foes oor throughout the world, your are forbidden to buy equipment and yes that goes for firebombs and throwing knives. You also can not use the mace under the elivator shaft in the tresure box either. all the weapons/equipment afterwards is all yours though.



    Im going to divide things into diffrent difficulty categorys but i want to set some ground rules that apply to all difficulty modes first.
    -You must start as a deprived class and immediately dispoase of your equipment immeadiately after you finish the undead asylum.
    -You cannot Buy any Weapons/ammo/spells/pyros/armour/titinite/bombs etc from anybody. all must be scavanged (this includes talismons and staffs).
    -The only time you will see a bsmith is when you want to upgrade or to buy a smith box (on select difficultys)
    - You can only upgrade your weapons with titinite you find in the world, you cannot buy any upgrade matereals from anybody.
    -you can only upgrade your equipment is at a blacksmith you cannot buy a weapon upgrade box for bonfires.
    -You may not get any covenant weapons because they are given to you.
    -Last but not least the objective for all difficultys is to beat the game with the desired difficulty's set rules on top of you.

    Easy:
    - You can scavange items from enemys you have killed, corpses (includeing mimics and dragons) and treasure boxes.
    -you may summon others to assist you at anytime, and you may help others to help you grind.
    -you may level up as you wish.
    -you may buy a weapon repair box to repair your junk at bonfires.
    -Gift options: anything.
    -rings: any you can scavenge
    -you may use items you find from npc invaders (weapons and armour and shields etc)
    -You may upgrade in any way with whatever upgrade materials you find.
    -estus flask: you may upgrade your flask as many times as you like.

    Normal:
    -You can scavange items from enemys you have killed, corpses (not including mimics and dragons) and treasure boxes.
    -you may only summon npc characters or other scavenger builds to assist you, and you can help others to grind.
    -you may level up to sl 60.
    -you may buy a weapon repair box to repair your junk at bonfires.
    -Gift options: anything
    -rings: any you can scavenge
    -you may use items you find from npc invaders (weapons and armour and shields etc)
    - you may upgrade in any way with whatever materials you find.
    - estus flask: you may only upgrade your flask to +4

    Hard:
    -You may only scavange items from enemys you have killed (you cannot get items from either mimics or dragons.) and you cannot get weapons from tresure boxes.
    -you may only summon other scavenger builds to assist you, and you can help others to grind.
    -you may level up to sl 40
    -you may only repair your equipment at a blacksmith, bonfire repair boxes are restricted.
    -Gift options:anything except for masterkey.
    - Rings: your only restrictions is rofap, havels ring and red tearstone ring.
    -you cannot use items you get from npc invaders, you may only use the humanity you get from them.
    -you cannot upgrade your weapons with anything besides regular titinite (unless if you make a boss weapon and use demon titinite)
    -estus flask: you may only upgrade your flask to+2

    Insane:
    - (Insane exclusive) You must immediately discard your club and sheild in the asylum and you must kill the asylum demon with just your bare hands/hilt. (you can get your flasks first though)
    -You may only scavange items from enemys you have killed (you cannot get
    items from either mimics or dragons.) and you cannot get weapons from
    tresure boxes.
    -you may only summon other scavenger builds to assist you. (you cannot grind)
    -You cannot leval up (thats right sl 6 all the way through)
    -You cannot repair your equipment what-so-ever the only way you can repair your equipment is by upgradeing it and thats it.
    -Gift options: pendent,witches ring
    - Rings: you can not use any ring.
    -you cannot use items you get from npc invaders, you may only use the humanity you get from them.
    -you cannot upgrade your weapons with anything besides regular titinite (unless if you make a boss weapon and use demon titinite)
    -Estus flask: you aent upgradeing $hit.

    Equipment tradeing: you may only trade equipment with other scavengers But only if their difficulty allows them to (a dude on easy cant give a dude on hard a drake sword)
    last but not least, you cannot bb glitch!

    Also, can you start with the Master Key? That could make a big difference on how hard this challenge is.

    While this is potentially challenging, it has as many loopholes as the Four Kings challenge I issued which was torn to shreds.

    like i said spells and miricles can only be obtained if you scavange them and not buy them, upgrades is an option. (unless if you prefer to not upgrade for an even greater challenge) but you can only upgrade with the resorces you find (farming) as for the gift, pick the pendant or witch ring both are pretty useless.

    actually this new rule points to buggys question, you can only use weapons you find on corpses and not in treasure boxes. and weapons you get from dragons are fine as well. Remember to report your progressions here now and then too!

    Well its still a wannabe tresure box and like i said you can get the drake sword provided that you find the bow and arrows off the floor somewhere. And @rant you can go right ahead and use tarkus armour and lautrecs provided that you can get them useing crap that you scavanged.

    well i just came to a frightfull discovery, i decided to remake my character so i can start over with you guys and i rememberd that you can get the estoc right away and it made verything way too breezy. So if you guys want the utmost challenge only use the weaps and armour you scavanged from enimys you killed.

    it is possible to melee the hellkites tail off, so drake sword ftw! also can i get upgrade materials from boxes? (dragon scale in b-town etc) also something you could easily do (though it requires good running and dodging skilss is head to ashlake at the start of the game (avoid all enemies) anbd then dodge to the e-dragon and punch its tail off, maybe get to 50 str first and use the zweihander before that. heck you could avoid ashlake and just summon help to kill everything for you including the gaping dragon till you get its tail... also the pardoners set in pw is on a corpse so's the elite and regular knight sets.... sorceror set, blk sorceror set, bk armor, soliares armor, oh what about dark armor and the gl sword if you join a covanent and get its stuff?

    Looks good. nice balance between the difficulties although I would remove being able to summon other for insane. The chances are you wont see another scavenger and its not really worth it.

    right then, i seem to be doing a normal version (already started) except the guy wearing holow warrior stuff i summoned gave me a lightning spear+4... oh well gargs are dead and i'll stick to my regular spear+4 and head to the depths so i can eventually get it to +10.. oh and i picked up the wooden shield in the burg is that okay? (i used it as a weapon since killing everything with my fists took so long and i had to keep stunlocking enemies into corners inorder to alternately beat on them or parry them...) also what should i do with my ill gotten spear? toss it? degrade it to +10?

    yup useing that sheild is fine, picking up weaps from already dead bodys on hard/insane is where its forbidden. And since sombody gave you the spear you have no choice but to toss it, sorry budd.

    silly Lure dragon onto bridge - cut off his tail = free drake sword. But straight off the bat I ran through Catacombs - got my GLGS from joining GL Covenant. I am basically making it so I cannot upgrade - I am killing every NPC I meet - the only difference I am doing to this challenge is that I am allowed to buy the Repairbox, Weapon Smithbox and Armor one - oh btw I killed Vamos and pinwheel also, patches is dead big grin and I have my Silver Serpents ring aswell as Vamos' hammer. I have a Mask of the child luckily from the drop - and obviously crescent axe. I traded my skull lantern in @ snuggly after killing Taurus for a RoF, easy kill on Capra - etc. wait actually I can still bypass Taurus xD Or I could have... could have done the capra jump etc. anyway it is very fun so far big grin - Andre and Rickert are the only BS's that will live until I am finished with them. Giant will upgrade my BAxe +10 to Golems axe big grin got it from the first axe hollow in the burg. But aye - so far so good, oh and I felt rather lucky I got the BKH, BKGA from Catacombs and ToG and Channelers trident from the one in the burg xD
