Besides astora's sword, what are some other good weapons that are quick to get to right after the asylum? Something without too much stat investment. I'd use astora's sword but I'd rather not put 6 points in faith just for that weapon. Thanks.
You don't have to put in the Faith to use the Sword. It works fine without it. It'll even kill the Skeletons in the Catacombs that keep coming back to life, until you find the Necromancer that's ressurecting them.
My interpretation of reality is different than yours. Don't destroy my reality, even if you consider it a fantasy.
Those are pretty much the easiest ones to get also if you don't feel like buying 100 arrows to get the drake sword go watch the the youtube video for the speed run he shows a different faster way to get the sword.
