Heater Shield: Good lightweight 100% physical block shield.

Reinforced Club: They make OK low level elemental weapons.

Orange Soapstone: For Derp messages.

Short Bow: Good for pulling enemies early on. Low DEX requirements.

Heater Shield is the best item that nut sells IMO. Great 2.0 weight shield. The residence key is useful as well. The merchant drops a very good sword if you are in a ruthless mood but inevitably players regret killing NPCs so practice caution sir. Good luck!

I don't plan on killing the undead merchant. I do plan on getting the drake sword, how many arrows and what type should I buy to take out the drakes tail? Also will the drake sword make it a lot easier to trump haval for his ring? and finally when does the drake sword become obsolete? Read something about finding a better weapon in sens fortress. Sorry for so many questions!

Dont be an fing noob. Get the katana. Hes s*** other then what others said to buy,but dont buy the residence key and soapstone. He drops them on death for free. But seriously,in the next area you meet a blacksmith so... Dont get the drake sword, it corrupts you. If you were ok at pve and dont die insanely often like i did when i first started, use it buy all means,but by what you said you dont seem good yet (no offense). Using it removes you of all combat experience. Luckily somebody warned me, im passing it on to you. But whats dicky is the creaters made it obselete right when it would be suicide to go back. I shudder saying the name of, blighttown... Uchi is still good thete, its a viable end game wep for me. Get the katana, it dosnt op kill every thing but doesnt take you years to kill. Believe or not undead berg will start too seem like a joke. Gl, please dont use the drake sword.
