    Old Hero.. Is his sword good?

    Post by Serious_Much on Sat Feb 04, 2012 11:16 am

    Okay, fought him, I admit i died to him first time, but second time he fought me he just didnt know where i was since you dont make noise in soul form.. It seems like a legit tactic to be in soul form for him, and bit of buffing with the white **** you get from slugs made me waste him pretty easy..

    anyway his sword looked really cool and it had an attack like drake sword that makes a fissure along the ground, can you get his weapon from his soul? and if so can it do that attack?

    Probably not the best person to answer this since I'm not really knowledgeable on the subject, but I think that his sword is not the best stats wise, it has some sort of special effect, maybe increased soul gathering? Also, I am pretty sure it has no drake sword fissure move. Sorry, hopefully someone else comes along with some more reliable information soon.

    You can forge the Large Sword of Searching with his soul. It really is more an item discovery item, similar to the serpent's ring in Dark. When you have it equipped it increases your base item drop rate which is an important distinction. It won't increase rare drops. Useful if you're farming grass, splinters, etc.

    Move set wise it handles like a curved sword (falchion, kilij). Scales ok with Dex, but the range is misleading. Sword looks long but you still have to be close to land a blow, so still better off with a true sharp+5 curved. Not really a main weapon you want to run with but still handy to make for the above farming methods.

    lol i dont really need to farm grass, just go into 4-2, kill first scythe dude and out to buy full moon from patches 1000 each, get like 9 for every 2 runs hehe.

    Okay thanks emergence, guess ill get that sword anyway though since drop rate will be good when farming those annoying ores
