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.
From: JonSuks175 | #001 i like to use the swords such as "the drake sword" so should i be focusing on strength? or dex? or a little bit of both?? also as a lvl 31 knight here are my stats are they any good? VITALITY:20 ATTUNEMENT:10 ENDURANCE:15 STRENGTH:24 DEXTERITY:13 RESISTANCE:10 INTELLIGENCE:9 FAITH:11 Can anyone tell me what i should change about these stats? as you can see i mostly focus on strength and vitality at the moment and a little bit of endurance and dex. what should i be doing?
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.
