Which shirt do you think is better? Ive decided to go to Mania not wearing my Punk Nexus shirt but one of these and possibly bring a Praise the Sun sign. I really think im crazy about Solaire just I am with Isaac Clarke

Spoiler for :


For the green one you can changle the colors.

is there a specific amount of gear you have on that makes you a light character. I do have the Black Knight Sword and almost have enought strength to use it. Say I wear really light armor but use the BLK could I still roll and move quickly or will I be slow. Ims using the Longsword which I have +5 and the Drake but dont know if it'll get me through the tougher parts.

A "Praise the Sun" sign at Mania would be the best thing ever.... EVER!!!

I love both shirts. I think I'd like the green one better if it had the huge sun the first one does on the back or something. Both shirts are awesome.


The weight thing depends on your Stamina/Endurance. If you get Havels ring you'll be able to wear more and still fast roll. My Washing Board katana weighs 8 pounds so I'd say your Black Knight sword wouldn't weigh much more than that.

What type of armor are you planning on wearing? If it's something really light like the Shadow Set then you should be all good. Your poise will be shit so make sure you get the Wolf Ring.

It goes by your equip load, which goes by your endurance. To Fast Roll you need at most -25% equip load. Between 25-50% is med-roll and anything over is fat-rolling.

If you are going for a strength build I'd say you could get away with med-rolling.

Try mixing and matching along with Havel's ring if you do want to be fast. Some people will use a heavy armour gauntlets for instance just for the poise.

Well said.


Here's my equip load stats for my NG+ character... again based off the look from the video I posted...

I found a way to get that look while getting 31 poise which added to the 40 poise I get from the Wolf Ring puts me at 71 poise which allows me to take a hit from any two handed weapon without getting stun-locked.

Hollow Soldier Helm +9
Hollow Soldier Armor +10
Iron Bracelet *PRAISE THE SUN!!!* +9
Hollow Soldier Waistcloth +9

I use a Balder Shield and a Spider shield both plus 15 depending on the situation. Spider shield is used against anything that can poison/toxic/curse me. Washing Board katana and the Compound Bow. I have all of that equipped for 28.6 lbs and with the Havel ring my equip load is 120. So I could actually have heavier equipment but it wouldn't fit the look I want.

With all my gear upgraded as it is my physical defense is 287(138) so that's not bad and again my poise is at 71.


Here's the poise chart, btw

Is reinforcing weapons and armor important. I see your gear and know its NG+ but you probably spent alot of time farming for the souls to buy all that titanite. I beat the game with the Black Iron set basically all +1 or 2, and most bosses werent that hard to take down. I'll probably spend more time getting summoned for souls to get my weapon and armor up. Still early so I can only buy titanite shards.

Crown of Dusk
Crimson Robe
Gold-Hemmed Black Gloves
Crimson Waistcloth

Havels Ring + Wolf/Lingering Dragoncrest Ring.

With Uchigatana+6 in my right hand an the Oolacile Ivory Catalyst and Spider Shield+5 in my left hand.

Pretty much the best I can get at this point. I've been eyeing up the Velka gear from the Painted World along with the Dusk Crown or even the Painted Guard Set. I'm also considering using Ricard's Rapier as I usually go with a katana. My main problem with this build is the good magic can't really be gotten either til the Duke's Archives or the DLC. After that I'd like to try and phase out my shield as much as I can. Be a proper mage-warrior.

Edit: The more I play this game (as in the better I get and the less I run about like a headless chicken) I realise how amazing it can look. I love how you can see all the other areas around you if you're up high. Or how you can look up and see the Moonlight Butterly in Darkroot or the Iron Golem waiting menacingly in Sen's.

Yeah first time I saw the Moonlight Butterfly I had to ask LC wth was that. I love that you can see them in the distance just waiting, even with the Asylum Demon where you see it up top if you know about the upcoming fight.

at Sens fortress after beating the Iron Golem there was something that looked big and I guess furry at the bottom, I could see it where Solaires summon sign was. I didnt know how to get their so does anyone know what that was or was I seeing things.

Also thinking of getting Uchigatana from the merchant now. Dont need arrows atm us it'll be better than my Longsword.

Reinforcing armour and equipment is more important than levelling really. This isn't a NG+ BTW this is an entirely new game and I've just reached Anor Londo (about 7 hours of playtime). Getting the ingredients is easy when you know how.

I had loads of weapons upgraded to +15 my last playthrough just to try them out. Once you get the hang of it it get's rather addictive.

I take it you're round about Anor Londo? In that case you're nearly at the Giant Blacksmith who sells most (all?) titanites.

No im not even close to Anor Londo, I just started a new game last week so far ive only rung the first bell and probably wont heas to Quelaag anytime soon.

I guess I'll try reinforcing my stuff more this playthrough though, I just thought it wasnt that important since I did beat the game without doing it pretty much at all. But then again ive heard ppl beat the game without leveling up once or no armor at all so what I did isnt amazing.

What kind of build were you? It's probably more important to reinforce armour and equipment when your character already has very little health, endurance, defense, poise etc. In that case every little bit of help matters. If you're going for a more strength oriented build however (like I will be next time) then you could pretty much just keep replacing armour as you go along. I seriously wouldn't like to be in Anor Londo right now with a base Uchigatana *shudders* O+S would have me for dinner.
