I'm a little muggy on the upgrade system.

It's similar to Demon's Souls, but I am wondering if there is an upgrade path that DOES NOT start with Titanite? Sort of like the Colorless Souls in Demon's.

I ask because the Grass Crest is AWESOME, it'll definitely be a major piece of my load-out throughout the entire game so I don't want to upgrade it down one path and later find out that there is a different and better path.

So do I have anything to lose by upgrading it with Titanite? Does anyone have a link that fully explains the upgrade system?

I'm pretty sure it only blocks like 85% physical making it obsolete.

It blocks 95, and the fast stamina regen is definitely worth the small chip damage you will take IMO. Stamina is your life.

First off, Stamina is the most important resource in the game. It doesn't matter what your shield blocks if you never get hit, ya dig?

Second, I'm wondering if there is a different upgrade path that doesn't start with Titanite? I don't really care about your opinion of the shield.

I have mine at +5 ATM. I'm waiting till I can get more upgrade options to see what would be best for it.

So basically every upgrade path is going to start at +5? Similar to Demon's Souls +3/+6 set up?

Yea it looks like it. You need to upgrade them some before you get the new paths.

Where do you get the Grass Crest Shield, and for that matter, the grass ring?
