    If you raise dex to 18 you will be able to use the black knight greataxe, a very powerful weapon.

    Ditch the Eastern Armor unless you need the lower weight, Elite Knight armor is good.

    Raise your Vit and End to 40, Raise your Dex to 18 like Alluier said, so you can wield the BKGA.

    What rings are you using?

    Dont EVER level resistence, at SL 70 (37 stg / 16 dex) a lot of weapons that scales should be much better then the drake sword, and you dont need to spend you souls on leveling, first you got to find a setup of weapons that you are confortable with and upgrade then to the max, theeeeen you focus on leveling up so much your character big grin

    oh... i almost forgot, try the ring of favor and protection for your build, is the best ring for beginners.

    If you wanna be pure melee, find atleast one of EVERY weapon time and play with them, pick out say... 5 of your favorites and then pair them up like say offhand spear + Great sword, Shield and katana etc etc and then level your str and dex to 40/40 so you can use them all effectively.

    You've either gotta farm it from the snake men in sen's fortress or dukes archives, or purchase it from shiva in blight town.

    yes, i favor the slashing weapons with a thrusting power attack like some of the straight swords and katanas. i sometimes use heavier weapons for tougher enemies like the Zweihander and eventually the black knight greataxe

    Try out the giant's halberd. It has the scythe's r1 moveset, and it's r2s are strong thrusts. It scales AND does lightning damage too.

    upgrade the elite knight - perhaps buy the giant leggings and gauntlets when you reach the giant blacksmith and use them once you get 40-ish endurance.

    you should really try the claimore or the greatsword out so, they have really nice movesets, and are both really easy to get big grin

    @candle, thanks for the link thats really helpful. and @pesth ive been using a Zweihander+10 and i love it. slow recovery speed but the damage is worth it. Where do you find palidan armor, im assuming a drop somewhere

    To get the Paladin armor kill paladin leroy in ToG( tomb of giants ) he is an npc invader he should invade once you get close to nito but only if your human. and after you kill nito the armor should be on the ground in the corner if its not there just quit and reload and it should pop up. but look on youtube for more details or on the wiki hope this helps
