Just to let you know soft cap for VIT is 29 not 20. 1 - 29 is the same. 1.5 increase then it changes to 1.0 at level 30.

one more tip go purchase the pharros stone from the old merchant hag by the bonfire by the first boss and spend 10k souls with her so you can get the ring she gives as it gives more souls.Also use the pharros stone on the wall under the ballista room to get a ring that restores your stamina rather quickly,,very useful especially since its available early.

cloranthy ring (spelling?) is REALLY useful, forget where it is though, i think in the first place where you need to use a pharros lockstone

The Chloranthy Ring(new spelling) is also in the ballista trap room in the Forest of Fallen Giants; as a result that room is fairly significant for most characters.

Add in that if you spend 10k souls on Melentia, the FoG vendor, she'll give you a +1 Silver Serpent Ring.

Much thanks for the awesome guide! Got any advice for a new player wanting to use heavy weapons(Halberd, greatsword, etc)?

Thanks again!
I stream stuff.

You should mention that the Cloranthy ring is also in that room with the Blue shield in the Forest of the Giants. I wish I had known about that my first time through there. My favorite ring.
