Unupgraded Longsword playthrough.

#1GixenPosted 9/26/2013 7:10:31 PM
So i decided to start a challenge run only using an unupgraded Longsword. Starting class Knight, and limited myself to only using Knight gear (but i dont like the Broadsword so i switched).

SL 66
Longsword
+15 Tower Kite Shield

Naked
Naked
Knight Gauntlets
Knight Leggins

Turned out to be fun as hell :)

Boss fights lasted 20-30 min. Female Undead Merchant was my BFF selling me those Charcoal Pine Resins. Without them i had a base damage 2H R1 of 20-23 at every boss O&S and forth. Those gave me 10 more :)
DLC bosses was 9-10 without resin. Manus i skipped cause hes so boring (and therefore i suck vs him).

Best fight was vs. Kalameet. Me and JollyCoop had almost an hour long fight with Broken Straight Swords +10, dealing the same damage as the Longsword.

4 Kings was impossible with the armor setup, and i mean impossible. Switching to Havels and Gold Pine Resins made them a joke though.

With 72 damage with Hornet ring Gwyn needed 59 riposts to go down.

Playthrough took 19 hours total. Hell was spelled: Upper Blighttown.

Yeah was a bit of a surprise when i showed up at Kalameet that you dropped me a broken sword and carcoal resins and said this is what we'll use to slay the beast. I did 9 damage a hit and with resin 16 with 1hr1. Good fight :-)

Using poison would help a bunch. It seems to last forever.

Undead merchant female sells poo also. You stick toxic and poison on a boss and it'll do like 14 or something damage a second for like ten minutes iirc. Don't know about dlc bosses but after I switched my normal arrows for poison ones. The only bosses I found so far 'pre lord souls' that don't poison are Quelaag and Iron Golem.

Glad to see people still having fun with these PvE concept runs though. (\ (^_^) /) Prez da son!

I never started one.... Im doing the no shield run with a spear instead.

Might do the claw one later as well though, but after this its the shield only next in line :P

I was planning a low level pyro only, but never did figure how to beat Quelaag....

I guess if you want to pyro only, only way is to summon help and do nothing :P
