    No Weapon playthrough

    Post by Raikan007 on Thu Jul 26, 2012 10:34 am

    Was wandering if anyone has done this?
    I have beaten the game twice now with the same character and am about 1/3 through a new save at the moment and was wondering if spells/pyro/miracles alone would be enough to complete the game...

    you can use the catalysts as weapons though.. that could be quite amusing..

    Haven't tried it, but would imagine it very possible.
    Plus I believe the Demon Catalyst does decent damage as a weapon.

    yeah it does, just before I finished the game on my first play through it was dealing about 380 damage happy

    I did not think so either.. maybe from NG+ wearing the ring that doubles sorceries (forgot the name, the one when you killed the Hydra) and the Sanctus/Dragoncrest ring..

    A only spell playthrough is very capable of being done.
    I know for positive it can be, as my first character was a sorcerer... and I thought upgrading my weapons was useless, so I played with a +0 dagger and a Catalyst!

    I have used it before. It was not a very useful weapon I found, as it weighs 8 pounds and only does 340 damage... but it has a lot of range for a fist type weapon, and it can be buffed.

    The Dragon Bone Fist is SCARY if you parry someone with it while buffed though... Your buff adds 370 damage per hit.. and your parry is a 3 hit combo, so you do 1000 damage from the buff, then another 600 damage from your weapon. OHKO's!

    Yes, I do it all the time. I find that it works best when you know the following things: 1) how to parry and which spells can be fired fast enough to take advantage of it, 2) how to organize your spell list so you can quickly get to the right spell in a moment's notice, 3) how many spells you need to destroy an enemy or roughly how many hit points each enemy has and 4) which order to go through the game in, in order to get the spells you need to progress past the area boss. A bonus would be figuring out spell combinations that are really helpful for areas - becoming invisible and then using hush or aural decoy to bypass annoying enemies is a pretty good option, when you know how to control your characters' pace.

    My current main character only upgrades weapons because he has nothing better to do with boss souls lol.

    I only ever use spells/soceries with my character. I have a MLGS as a secondary, but I honestly only use it for weaker enemies that I'm not afraid to get close to (yes, I am quite the coward when it comes to melee). It can definitely be done! You just need enough spell slots to pull it off, because it would be terrible to run out of casts before reaching a bonfire.

    1200 firesurge? That's crazy talk! You only get 1 of those per playthrough, no? It would be really awesome, though. You only need to be NG++ to have 450 Soul Arrows (provided you started as a Sorcerer).

    I have a 1200 fire surge character... I actually have a 1320 fire surger... it invades in the forest and just walks forward exactly like a dragon head glitcher does... honestly very deadly.

    How long does it take to use all of them?

    That sounds like a lot of fun! You must get falsely accused of hacking a lot... :/

    a bit under 4 minutes.

    And I do get accused of hacking a lot.

    My Mage with 450 Soul Arrows is SL120, for PvP. I never actually used it with those spells attuned, though! Would take roughly 15 minutes of mind-numbing continuous fire to unload all of those. The reason I went to NG++ with it was to get 3 x CSS.
