    Titanites Farming

    Post by Pesth on Fri Jun 15, 2012 4:07 pm

    I really dont know what i hate more, farming titanite chunks / Slabs or twinkling titanite, Prostration those giant clams really get me on my nerves, and while i enjoy a lot bs the dark wraiths, dodging the blue drakes in the bridge are really a pain too hehe...

    At least i got a slab on my first try today Joy

    I'd say just farm for the slabs and put the souls into buying Twinkling Titanites. Problem solved happy

    Do yourself a favor with the drakes. Get a good bow and a lot of arrows, the Hawk Ring and make them regret being the jerks of the valley. If you're a dex build you'd be surprised how much a Black Bow +15 with Hawk Ring and Feather arrows will do from all the way across the bridge......


    Also, welcome to the forums. And Twinkling titanite might be easier to purchase if you're at that point in the game.

    titanite slabs are always a problem, people complain about how rare they are, but you gotta think. it makes your weapon exceed to the best possible reinforce level. they only give you 1 directly. but you can farm just in case you want to try on a different weapon.

    I just buy my Twinklies from the big blacksmith in Anor Londo and I take the Firelink Shrine path when I farm for Slabs. Sure, it's a longer walk, but it's far and away the path of least resistance, overall, I think it's the better choice.

    Thanks for the replys big grin ,the Twinkling Titanites have a really high drop rate in the crystal cave, thats why i farm them, and the thing about killing the dragons is that running is faster lol my build is 40/40 stg dex and i have a +14 black bow of pharris so i'll just kill the last dragon from the bridge, i think that will solve the problem

    I only kill the Drakes if I'm farming Dragon Scales at the same time as titanite Chunks. Otherwise, I'll just run past them too. As for killing them, I find the Painting Guardian Sword does a great job. I forget my exact combo, but it goes something like this:

    - Run toward the drake until he aggros and spits lightning at you.
    - During the lightning, run to his side, and spam R1 (2H) until your stamina is almost depleted
    - With the last of your stamina, finish him off with a R2

    (This works best on NG. On NG+, the PGS is a little underpowered to farm Drakes.) If you execute this properly, you dodge the first lightning easily, then the R1 spam will stagger the Drake right before he starts his second attack, and the R2 will finish him off before he can attack again. Takes a few seconds each Drake.

    I prefer farming chunks in the Kiln, though. I do it on NG+ and only kill the first 3 Black Knights (titanite chunk, red chunk, titanite chunk) then homeward bone back to the lordvessel. On NG+ the BKs give plenty of souls that you can then use to buy titanite shards and large shards to go along with the chunks, or twinkling titanites. Even better if you farm alive and online, since the invaders will provide a constant stream of extra souls you can use to buy more titanites!

    (That being said: anyone want red chunks? I have a ton of them! I'll trade them for regular chunks. happy)

    The thing I hate farming the most has to be Dragon Scales, the drakes just never want to drop them even if I have 10 Humanity and my Serpent Ring....

    But my MLGS+5 was worth it all the more once I got it <3

    By the way, welcome to the forums! =D

    My P. dagger does the same, but it doesn't require the entire bar of stamina because the bleed hits halfway through haha!
