@Solid, I think in blighttown you get the "earliest" whip, not very accesible from the beginning of the game if you ask me, so, that will be a issue.

Still you can get down there as a regular dex character and then continue your travel with the whip only, pretty sure someone done already, but it will be entertaining.

*A buff will be cool too.


Yeah.... the whips suck. I've tried them out on numerous occasions. They are... novel I suppose. If you were to upgrade it a bit, sure you could take on Quelaag and a few early bosses, but I see it largely as wasted potential on what could have been an interesting weapon class (albeit with few weapons).


Yeah, such a gimmicky weapon which can be fixed just with a backstab animation and faster swings. Don't get why they intentionally ruin some of the options they give to you.

I don't think they meant to... when you upgrade it on some paths the damage is decent. The problem is there are so many other weapons that can do what it can, and they are more effective and easier to use I think. The other whips are ok, atleast the Knotched Whip is good for a laugh or two, but really I'm not sure why some more animations were created for the whips. It would have been cool to use them even as an exploration tool.... Indiana Jones style :)

Anyway, I got; pyro flame, large ember, large club, power within. Tons of stuff for the build.
