I used to make a Divine weapon for the Catacombs and the Nito fight but now I just use a Silver Knight Spear and it's fantastic. Kills the skeletons in the Catacombs and the Nito fight and they don't re-spawn. Took me several playthroughs to learn that.
Edit: there is no Smith in New Londo
Why and how. Is it just the spear or does the Silver Knight Sword work too.
Probably not, I just came back to Dark Souls to get farther with my Michonne character. Now that I have the Lordvessel I can just finish it later. I'll have to split my time though, looking to get Saints Row and play with Frooot .
My Washing Pole is +10 now. And my fire Falchion is +5
