    Need help with no bonfire/no deaths build.

    Post by Buggy Virus on Mon Jul 09, 2012 5:30 pm

    So for my next in game project I'm attempting to the beat the game without using any bonfires, and without dieing once, while being human. (I already know there are a few spots I need to warp from, so I will be homeward boning while using a health item before hand to show that I am not getting free health.)

    But so this means that when I go human this will be at the firelink bonfire, meaning while there I have the option to level up 4 soul levels with souls I already have.

    Which begs the question which I should put them into.

    I'm playing with a warrior because they have the best starting levels for someone who can't use magic.

    So here are the thoughts:

    Quelaag fury sword will be the most damaging weapon I can possibly use on this build, and it is fast so it is going to be a no brainer to use.

    On the other hand, with the scarcity of health and the fact I will have 10 estus for the whole game and whatever humanity I pick up (since I can't farm at all), the server would be helpful to use, but using the server would mean putting 3 levels into strength to get it up to 16. Then I could two hand the server. Along with that I would be able to one hand the claymore and halberd, and I suspect I might use the crystal halberd at some point.

    On the other hand if I put one stat point into Dex I get access to the Uchitanga, which I honestly don't know if it is worth it, but I also get access to the long bow, and since the bow will be pivotal to this build this may be nice early on, although I could just use the short bow. And eventually I would get the composite bow which doesn't need any leveling on the warrior to use.

    So here is my plight.

    How should I use these four levels.

    Right now the thoughts behind the build is to use the ring of evil eye much of the time, also havels ring and ring of favor and protection. Sometimes I would switch out to gold covetous ring whenever I really wanted to get drops.

    The weapon I expect to use end game is quelaag fury sword. With access to the server I would make it lightning. I won't do any fire upgrades, because I would lose health falling to get to Vamos.

    Other than that I will probably be relying on a bow like the short bow or composite bow.

    I wouldn't mind End or Vit, I was just saying the thought process behind STR and DEX

    the shortbow has the same range as long bow, and less dex requirements, but does less damage (deeerd)
