the Drake Sword is garbage; it does not gain anything from STR or DEX. Find a better weapon you would like to use, and build your stats to that. After that I highly suggest getting some more END, VIT, and RES. Most things will start to 1 shot you soon, and your drake sword will do no damage after the 2nd bell tower.

Yeah I would rush END to 40 (max amount of stam you can have) as quickly as possible. Only level other stats for something you want.

high END lets you wear better armor and block/dodge/attack more so I think it's better to get high up before VIT or other stats.

I raised strength to 20 and dex to 18 so I could 1H the black knight sword, then I switched to all end with a point into vit every once in a while.

My opinion:

Get Faith up one level (to 12). This'll allow you to learn heal which helps a lot (and force, if you want it too).
Pump up your endurance.
Occasionally get more STR. Since your STR is so high I'd imagine you're planning on using a good STR scaling weapon lategame.
