yeah the backstab and parry repost are crucial. The parry moreso if you have no armor like I like to play. I'm usually in the thief gear or the ninja type gear you find in Blighttown. They have no poise so I have to parry or get a backstab most of the time. And by having to learn how to parry I can do it really well now.
Yeah with this shield I have im learbing to Backslash better. Wanna eventually become an expert at parrying since it looks just as cool. kinda proud of myself for beating the Black Knight and getting his awesome Black Knight Sword that I cant use now lol. Whenever I see warnings from other players saying death,good luck or tough enemy I feel like just heading back lol but I didny then and my fireball spells really helped. think im gonna start oeaving messages for players and help them out and not troll them lol. Had a message in front of a wall that said shorcut and I swear I spent a min or 2 staring and hacking at it.
At work now but just soaking up all the info I got yesterday so I can try and play without asking for help. I love the combat and just exploring everything. Oh and Drake Sword is aweseome I was born the year of the dragon so it fits.
That Drake sword is really awesome. It can carry you a long way in the game. It doesn't scale though so you'll eventually get weapons that are better. That Black Knight Sword is gonna be awesome for you once you can use it.
In my new playthrough I'm using a Balder Side sword and the Spider shield. I love how the Spider shield looks and it levels up pretty well and has high poison resistance which helps me in Blighttown. I have them both upgraded to +10 so far and I've only rang the first bell.... I'm ready to go back down to Blighttown and ring the second.
This was a day one buy for me but I've yet to beaten it. I have 40 hours on it and I booted it up earlier this month to give it another go. Sadly to say, I got fucking obliterated in Anor Lando. I might start from scratch again...
So Havel has killed me time after time after time. I have watched videos and I try dodging and his fucking club just keeps getting me. During all my fights I only hit him twice. Its probably because im under the weather though and burning up
Ive been able to recover my souls everytime though and have bee able to lvl up alot. will keep trying later tonight though.
I did it for a mini boss is tough as hell. There were times I was close to beating him but got hit. I ended up getting the timing perfect om when to dodge his attacks. So happy I finally beat him. It helped also having fir bombs amd throwing knives while fighting him.
congrats! The best part about this game is finally beating something that constantly kills you. It's a huge sense of accomplishment with every boss and mini-boss battle in the game. I get so excited when I finally beat them.
I like Havel's Ring. Since I'm a very light armor build that allows me to equip heavier stuff and still have my quick rolls and dodges.
I've decided to not use the FaP ring this playthrough. It really helped me my first play through though.
