I was just wondering how many of you chose to use the Drake Sword, and how many of you chose to pass it up. I don't think anyone can dispute that it makes the earlier parts of the game (pretty much until you beat Quelaag) much easier in many respects. So who of you used it, and who went with a different weapon?
As for me, I used it on almost all of my characters
I used it the first time I played through the game, and then never after that. There would have been no point, unless I was trying to make the game harder with worse weapons haha. --- GT: GrandalfTheGey
Used it on my main character until I had gotten my hands on a Demon Spear. From there the Demon Spear was my go-to killing stick until I had gotten my hands on Black Knight weapons. :P --- Smoking Ghost / Feral Manx Proud Outcast of Capcom Unity
Somehow it didnt occur to me on a first playthrough to keep shooting at a dragon's tail until it drops a relatively strong weapon for the next few areas. (yeah I played blind)
I got the claymore, and got it to +5, and then to fire+5, and later after exploring demon ruins and finding large flame ember to +8. From then on I didnt bother upgrading anything and used that and the lightning spear I found in sens not long after, taken to +4. Lets just say I actually made an elemental vit/end build before I even got too much into the game (I learnt about scaling when I was checking the boards and decided the stat investments arent worth it for a first timer) :P --- Young master, i cannot aid one who opposes the master.
