    You can stand on one of the bridge towers with a 100 or so arrows and easily kill that dragon too.

    I wonder if the DLC continues the story or just adds a branch that's not really related to Lordran.

    woo, just beat the two dickholes in Anor Londo with the help of a Sunbro. Solaire though did aboslutely nothing and didn't come through the gate. Also because of this vessel I went straight from a normal scimitar to a Quelaag's Fury Sword +4.

    Also I killed fatty first because Ornstien's armor is sweeeet

    For shits n giggles I'm also going to make a Dragon Bone Fist so when I make a PVP twink I can falcon punch people into the air

    Also whats with the small nest at the beginning of the game when you go over to it it says "Give me warm, give me soft..."

    You can drop certain items in the nest (it has to be IN the nest), and the next time you load your game or come back to that area, she'll give you a different item. You'll have to look up on the wiki as to what items she'll give you though.

    That's Snuggly the Crow. If you drop certain items, quit and reload your save, you can get something back. It's like a trading thing, sort of.

    Also, I'm at the Duke Archives now. Final Lord Soul to get, then I'm going to fight off Gwyn, get the good ending, and take a much needed break for Dark Souls. I have lots of MGS to catch up on.

    Cool, I'm going to get quite a few twinkling titanite off her. Too bad they took out the infinite glitch, would be nice to roll in my SK/Ornstien with +5 right off the bat.

    Also do you think the Painted world would be a good choice after beating Anor Londo since I have the doll now

    I beat Four Kings earlier today, that fight really sucks without a lot of vitality because you can pretty much be killed in one hit.

    Now I'm a soul level 1 Darkwraith and I can invade pretty much anyone; I'm invading people in Undead Burg but I'm using equipment at their level, it's really fun being able to have a good fight with people and not using cheesy shit that I can easily 1 hit kill them with.

    Edited:

    Ahaha oh my god this is so much fun. I was fighting this sl1 and he summoned some dude that had some pretty late game shit, and I just great combusted him in the face as he tried to attack me so I could continue my fair fight with the host.

    I dropped a shield for him while we were fighting, and eventually he beat me because I thought it'd only be fair to let him heal, and his bleeding damage eventually caught up to me and I died.

    Paladin Armor has the most curse resistance in the game.

    I just beat the game. That final fight was a piece of shit until I started to parry Gwyn to death.

    Then I deleted my file. Now I'm going to start over and use the knowledge I have now after beating the game to make my next run smoother than the last, and with an effective build and isn't just pure melee.

    Edited:

    Just to clarify, I loved the final battle. And the ending. The game is fantastic. But I deleted my file because my first build and character was absolute shit and when I thought about it, all I wanted to do was really beat the game. There were a lot of things I missed, such as joining the Darkwraith Covenant (which is what I really wanted to do) and the next run will cover over the things I messed up.

    Hell I did it before doing Ornstein and Smough you should be fine. While i was a wizard which makes things quite a bit easier you can either finish them off with throwing objects like firebombs or just run around them.

    There is a shortcut later on so if you just run to the end you can get a shortcut back making all the above enemies irrelevant.

    I love games like this. Games that you really feel the accomplishment when you have finished the levels. Games where you get frustrated, when the battle at the end of a stage is tense, that's when you get a real sensation of accomplishment, and it feels so good.

    Also, is the ring in Demon's Souls 3-1 stage that makes you get more souls by kills worth it? It looks like it costs way too much souls, but maybe it can make it up easily. Is it worth it?

    So I spontaneously bought 2 games on Friday; Dark Souls and Twisted Metal for the PS3. Tried out Twisted Metal and wasn't impressed. Yesterday I began playing Dark Souls and am hooked. I'm stuck battling the Taurus Demon and put the game down to do some homework. I feel as though I could have fucked myself over because I have a bow but no arrows and I'd like to get the Drake sword somehow. Couldn't find a merchant anywhere before the boss battle and there was a knight blocking some entrance but he kept handing my ass to me so I just left him alone.

    The Dragon will stick around until you kill it so you can always get the Drake sword whenever.

    If you still haven't found a merchant then:    from the bonefire inside the tower with broken stairs walk out, turn right down the stairs then turn left and kill the 2 spear guys. There's a few boxes near where the spear guys stand that you can break, revealing a staircase, go down that and you'll find a merchant.

    I need to know which would be better for pvp, Fire, Chaos, or Lightning?

    I've always been confused on what does what more, usually due to me being a phantom quite a bit, I do carry a bit of humanity on me 24/7, so I was thinking chaos...

    Lightning is generally pretty good but because you have humanity on you, you're probably better off with chaos. It might keep stat scaling too, not sure. Also, a lot of armor is weaker to piercing damage, especially strike damage. So if you're looking for a new weapon to use, there's something to consider.

    There's not really any set of "best armor" as each set offers something different like fire resistance, slash attack resistance, curse resistance, poise, etc...

    But if you're talking pure physical defense, then fully upgraded giant armor has the most of it.

    Right now I am using the Shadow armor that can be found in Blighttown, it is fucking badass and has really good poison resistance. Unfortunately you need a lot of twinkling titanite to upgrade it which is really rare.

    I think Havels armor is also pretty much one of the most robust ones in the game.

    Smough's armor is all around the best.

    It has the best physical defense in the game other then the giant armor+5. But it doesn't have lower stamina regeneration and making it better.

    i'm a personal fan of tarkus' armor, mostly because building pure Iron Tarkus is so hilariously fun. Death to everyone!

    you can farm it or buy it for 8k a piece in anor londo

    that being said, don't upgrade the shadow armor. it's tremendously shitty endgame, and is quickly outclassed by a lot of other armor. even painting guardian armor with no upgrades has higher poison resistance, i believe.

    I just realized I haven't played this in like a month.

    Backstab them or kill with fire/fire weapon, then they don't explode.

    Or just run past everything, kill the undead dragon, glitch his back half, run to Priscilla, then leave/kill her.

    What armor is best armor

    upgraded black iron?
    To expand on this a bit:

    There's like four or five different things to look at when you're picking armor. Here they are, in order:

    1. $wag. Yes, swag. Swag is clearly the most important armor choice, as looking baller as fuck while you bash skulls to death is what defines you as a good player. Here's a list of the most swag armor:

    Big Hat
    Onion Helm
    Black Cleric's Robe
    Seeker's Robe

    That's it.

    2. Poise. Poise, if you don't know what it is, determines how much damage you can take before you're plowed over. Here's how that works:

    0-35 poise: You'll get stunlocked by anything, including fist jabs. If you're wearing armor that doesn't give enough poise, you'll want the wolf ring (adds 40 poise) before it's viable at all. That, or be hilariously good at dodging or breaking stunlocks. I suggest the ring.

    36-55 poise: You can take one or two hits from shortswords/spears, but no more.

    56-75 poise: You can take one or two hits from greatswords, three or four from shortswords.

    76+ poise: you probably won't get this, and it's not worth it usually. This lets you absorb one or two hits from an ultra greatsword (or 2h greatsword) before you get knocked over. If you're good, you won't get hit at all, making this pointless. I'd aim for 56 poise, that's usually all you need.

    3. Auxillary effects. This doesn't happen much, usually just on helmets (mainly crown of dusk and Gwyndolin's gay hat). CoD has 35% +damage but also -20% resistance to magic, Gwyn sun has +20% damage but no -% damage reduction. This is really just a matter of preference.


    4. Stamina Regen. Certain heavy armors have stamina regen penalties. I don't remember which ones, but Iron Golem and Giant have the most severe penalties, Black Iron and Tarkums have slightly less of a penalty, and for some reason Smough doesn't have a penalty at all. Go figure.

    5. Weight.One other important factor to remember is weight. If you can stay below 50%, you can equip the DWGR and roll around like an annoying ninja, which I personally am against but you kind of need it to be good at PvP, so that's your call. For PvE it doesn't matter at all.




    So, the best armor depends on your class. The defense stats aren't as important as you'd think, really. Obviously, the higher the better, but it shouldn't be first on your list of priorities.

    I wear Sage Robe, Havel Legs, Havel Gloves, Big Hat. I hate how Havel Legs look, but the robe hides them. Legs+Hat gives me exactly 56 poise, so I can take a couple hits. The robe is to hide the legs, the hat is for pure swag. Everything I can upgrade is +5 (sage robe has best stats for light armor). I usually wear Havel's ring and my secondary slot is either DWGR or Hornet's Ring. Hornet's ring is accompanied by changing my shield to a chaos +5 parrying dagger, because people that know what they're doing will never attack someone with a parrying dagger, so it gives me time to regen/heal up. Or they attack me and get instakilled by my monster riposte.
