View Full Version : I've hit a wall...
10-12-2009, 05:24 PM
I'm on new game + with 1-1, 1-2 and 2-1 bosses done. I just cant seem to get anywhere else done. I just suddenly seem greatly underpowered/armored. Anyone have any tips for areas to farm souls?
Also, i'm at a bit of a loss with the weapon upgrading. I'm still using one of my 1st swords that i upgraded to a quality kilij+4. I never seem to have the materials to upgrade anything else. Should I have moved on from this by now?
Any advice/help anyone could give would be great. Thanks in advance.
Well for a start the start of 4-1 is a great place to grind really and as for the weapons i think you should move onto a named weapon I use meat cleaver which is one of the strongest weapons (club +adjudicators soul I think) and also I have found demonbrand and soul brand great.

A quality Kilij can serve you just fine buddy. You do not need to "upgrade" to a named weapon at all; just see about upgrading your Quality Kilij to +5.
If you don't think it's doing you service then go through your inventory and see if there is a higher damage dealing weapon instead. But Kilijs have a very nice moveset IMO. Bear in mind that the heaviest hitting weapons usually have some penalty or requirement for effective use.
Do you have a good shield you are using? Dark Silver is a rather fine shield as is the Purple Flame.
How about magic and miracles? What do you use, if either?
Even if you have been through the game once do not assume that you can now just breeze through your second playthrough. Caution and a raised shield WILL still help you.
I don't know what level you are at or what any of your stats are but if you aren't too high then go online and use that Blue Eye stone of yours. There really is no better way of farming for souls bar spamming 4-2 over and over.
What Soul Level are you by the way?

ok, heres the breakdown.
1-1, 1-2, 2-1, 2-2, 2-3 done
soul lvl 100
i have every miracle bar the one that requires 3 colourless souls and as i've not used any souls so far for weapons the rest went on magic.
i'm using a quality kilij +4, white bow, knights shield +6 and silver catalyst for the odd spell. Using fluted armour except for body which is brushwood (have the brushwood set but havent got the equip burden for it all.
Anything there I should be working on?

Soul Level 100 is pretty decent actually. You're still in the "popular" online ranges and past 100 you have a 25 SL range to find others to play with.
I really recommend using the Blue Eye Stone for soul farming in your case.
Stick to Warding/Total Protection and either Soul Ray/Soul Light or Firespray for your magic. I'd avoid using miracles with only 10 faith...
Ditch the White Bow and see if you have a Compound Longbow in your inventory. If you don't then find one close to the Crows tree in 4-1. Start upgrading this to a Viscous longbow. Do you remember in 2-1 the second Crystal Gecko halfway through by some rock throwers? Seeing as you have killed all bosses for that world that Gecko will respawn three times meaning you can farm it four times for Spiderstone goodies. Hopefully after your first playthrough you should have some chunks and shards already. A Viscous bow fully powered up has the range of a White Bow but will take a big advantage of your relatively high Dex.
Armour isn't so important this time around so it might be best to equip Black Leather. No stamina regen penalty as your End isn't too high and light enough in weight for you to dodge roll easily.
I'd ditch the Knights Shield myself for the Dark Silver. Slightly less Hit Res (unless you power it up with Colourless Souls) but 100% protection from magical attack. If you have it keep a Purple Flame (90% fire protection) or a Brushwood (100% fire protection) for those super hot situations.
