    Help a new guys please!

    Post by scotty1320 on Thu Jun 14, 2012 9:27 am

    Hi everyone,

    I've been playing Dark Souls now on and off since release - I'm about 30 hours in, just killed a massive wolf and heading for Sen's Fortress. Somethings been bugging me though, and i'm looking for a little advice!

    I've been using the Drake Sword since early in the game, as it made things a bit easier, but it feels like a cheap way to play. But since I discovered the Drake Sword, nothing has come close to it's power - is this normal? If i was to use normal weapons, could they be enhanced to match the Drake Sword, or should I find other weapons.

    I don't know if I would have gotten this far without said Sword!



    Thanks in advance

    Scotty

    Pretty soon the game will make you adapt. No spoilers but the drake sword is static and the game certainly is not

    Any weapon at +5 with scaling will most likely start to outdamage the drake sword.
    Have you found Andre yet? He will upgrade your weapons with titanite. Just find a weapon with a moveset you like and upgrade it at him.

    Is Andre the dude below the bonfire at the entrance to Sen's Fortress?

    Thanks for the advice, I'll have a play around with some weapons tonight and see what I like. Should I purely go on physical damage as the stat of choice (Drake Sword has 200 I think) or is there more too it?

    Thanks in advance again (and thanks for the quick responses)!!

    Can't remember offhand my build (I'd be lying if I said I really knew what you were talking about lol)

    I'm level 49 I think, most of my points spent in Strength, endurance, vitality and some dexterity.

    Then you should use a weapon that scales with strength (obviously). The manserpent greatsword, the demon great machete, the large club and the the black knight great axe are all good strength weapons.

    The Drake Sword is a good to begin with but soon becomes fairly tame, I guess you could use Dragon Scales to upgrade it but not sure if it is worth it.

    When you get to Anor Londo there is the lighning spear which is useful also Qualaags fury sword is pretty sweet, think you will be-able to get it now

    He has more str than dex, so using the furyword would not be worth it.
    And upgrading the drake sword isn’t worth it, it takes a lot of souls and the AR barely increases.

    Don't I have to get to Anor Londo to make these special weapons? Is that after Sen's Fortress?



    I've heard horrible things about Anor Londo lol

    Yes, but Boss weapons are rarely worth it. You would be better off with just upgrading a normal weapon.
