Trying to get the Black Knight sword + shield

#1Jrock1019Posted 10/22/2011 4:23:35 AM
I've gone without killing any of them so far just for this purpose. I'm sitting on 4 humanity at the moment; should I go ahead and take them out or farm some more humanity to up the drop chances?

Up to 7 humanity now, item discovery at 146. Keep going or go for the kill(s)?

If it was me, i would go for it.

if you REALLY want to be paranoid about it, get to sens fortress.

turn the little trap ball around and it will break a lower door open, there is a ring there that GREATLY boosts your item find rate.

humanity will rase it to like 120... with dimishing returns afterwards.

this ring boosts it to like 300, I think its the absolute best item farming ring in the game.

Sounds awesome, thanks for the tip.

Haven't been to Sen's Fortress yet, what's the quickest/easiest way to get there?

Its across the bridge near the first blacksmith. You can only enter if you have rung the second bell though. So depending on how far your in, could be a long time.

Yeah I haven't even rung the first bell yet so I'm a long way from getting there.

Also, a couple more questions:

1. Do all the Black Knights have a chance to drop a shield, or just the ones that use shields?
2. Do they respawn in NG+?

1. Just what they use.
2. Yes.

Last Area of the game has 5 Respawning Black Knights in it

Sword x 2
Great Sword
Axe
Spear

So if you really want the Black Knight gear and don't care when just work your way through the game.
