    SL 1 challenge help

    Post by Reaper's Intent on Wed Jul 11, 2012 10:06 pm

    Getting ready to start a SL 1 toon to see just how far I can get with him. This is what I am looking at right now:

    http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?b=cHlyb21hbmNlciwxMCwxMiwxMSwxMiw5LDEyLDEwLDgsMCw1OSwzMyw0Myw1LDI1LDMxLDE0NSw1OCw0LDUsbm9ybWFsLGxpZ2h0bmluZyxub3JtYWwsbGlnaHRuaW5nLDAsMzAsMzAsMCwwLDAsMCwwLDAsMCwwLDAsMCwwLHdvb2Rlbix3b29kZW4sd29vZGVuLGJ3b29k

    If someone can offer some advice no tweaking it a bit I would appreciate it. I realize masks are generally frowned upon, but I figure I need all the health I can get. I also realize I could use hollow soldier waist cloth, but its damned ugly so that's a no.

    I do have a few questions about weapons who's stats I don't meet. Specifically the daggers/katana's with the bleed effect, and the parrying dagger. I realize they will do crap damage, but do I still get the bleed effect and critical bonus from them? I was thinking of off handing priscilla's dagger for the bleed effect, which would be nice for some enemies that like to turtle.

    Also I will not be using pyromancy PvE as an ascended flame would just be too damned good. I will however have one on standby to PvP to help close the gap with weapons that will one shot me.

    Thanks for your thoughts and input.

    At sl 1 you'll have the stats to use the Jagged Ghost Blade and the Reinforced Club for bleed. You can also use a crossbow if you need a bit of range. Good luck!

    Power within and red tearstone ring were a complete necessity for me when I did mine! =D

    You can also parry with the parrying dagger even if you don't meet the stats requirements--just don't accidentally hit L1 instead of L2 when wielding it without the stats!

    I like the jagged ghost blade for low lvl also, but unless you're using it in combo with an elemental reinforced club it loses its edge once you get a decent weapon forged. Also masks are only really frowned upon in pvp in combination with heavy armor and dwgr. I think you should make your build the way you want especially for pve. Heres my suggestion for a set up. http://tinyurl.com/7mdvofh or http://tinyurl.com/6tpmj7l , could always change it up and use the heater shield somehow if you wanted more stability with your shield.
