Is it worth to go immediately to the Heide Tower?

I'm planning to make a faith caster build, and I heard that lightning spear comes from there.

I want to get it ASAP, but most suggest to go to the forest first.

Is it a good idea to start with heide?

maybe, it's possible, but you will need help for sure. The giant isn't that hard or long of a run.

I just did as a Cleric. Grind the first two giants until they stop spawning for tons of souls. Get a decent shield (or not if you're good at dodging) and Dragonrider is cake. Pump faith to 22 for lightning spear. It wrecks early on btw.

is this the same lightning spear you got from the mimic in dark souls?

I didn't even see the Forest of Fallen Giants until after I beat the tower.

As a cleric you start off with a Mace, and those big knights at the tower are weak to blunt damage. So you actually have it easier than any of the other starting classes if you want to tackle the tower first.

Just get yourself a shield first

Lightning Spear is a Miracle, not a weapon

If you're starting as a cleric you'll have no problem in heides. Maces are strong against armoured opponents.
