I'm currently in Chapter 1, just after killing Kayran. I currently have a Robust Cutlass that deals 14-20 damage with 47 bleeding and 47 posion. Considering buying a diagram to makea Jagged Sword with a higher damage but less bleeding.
I'm just wondering whether these are two of the better regular swords in chapter 1 or not, or whether I am better saving my orens and crafting materials as there will be good swords coming up.
Can anyone tell me what kind of swords are available in chapter 1? Best sword they found in that chapter? etc
haha, I've already crafted a few items. I was just wondering as the advantage I gain buying this Jagged sword over my current sword isn't so great and I didn't want to do it and then discover in the next quest I get a better one.
You are right though, I should probably not be so anal about it.
I haven't bought a single weapon or armor from a vendor and haven't had any issues. The items you can craft are pretty much always better. I'd recommend hanging on to all your silver ore though. You can craft a pretty beastly silver sword early in act 2 if you have enough, and silver ore was pretty hard for me to come by. Though I might've just been unlucky.
If you used an imported game save, you can start with the Moonblade (silver) and a decent steel (that's not too much better than what you started with) along with the Raven armor. The Moonblade lasts until the start of chapter 2, and then you can craft one that blows it away.
The Jagged blade/cutlass are still the best until you do the mines quest--and you can get a 3 socket 26-33 damage steel from one of the banner quests that takes place in the tomb (there is also a sidequest there as well) as long as you do this quest "correctly".
