What are good weapon upgrade strategies? iirc from Demon souls I found magic enhanced weapons were kind of meh, because a lot of the higher level bosses and mobs have high magic defense. Anyone have a good website that describes in depth how to upgrade weapons? I have upgraded a bunch of things to +5, but i'm hesitant to use up my rare consumables to enhance them just yet.
and where do you find the uchikatana? i remember it being BA in demon souls.
Oh, and that button input delay is still there... got me in deep **** a few times!
i agree, it feels like i have a narrow 10 degrees of back-stab area while my character seems to have a 35 degree area where back-stabs are possible. I want to play in human form as much as possible but it's freaking so tedious when you got people trolling a known area
That was with that item discovery ring and 11 humanity so my item discovery was maxed out.
I've been doing that for most of the day.. That and farming souls from Anor Londo giants to upgrade most of the weapons. I guess I need to get more item find. It took me 3-4 runs to get 2 scales.
I now just need to get the Ember for the +11-15 Normal path. My axe doesn't do enough damage even though it says 500(then factor in armor) it hits around 300
i need better lightning defense. The stupid gargoyles in anor londo are kicking my butt
And these javelin archers are just stupid. shot in the back, shot in the front, shot in the back, shot int he front, die.

watching youtube videos just annoys me further because it seems 99% of the guys posting youtube vids are lvl 150+ with huge stamina and life bars. I don't want to grind to get soul levels
That was so fun in Demon's Souls... see how far you could get at lvl1.
A.Wilder, I'll have to get back to you on the stats.. Let's just say, I want to roll quickly in heavy armor (without Havel's ring) and 1 shot a lot of people without backstabbing.

Currently using a +14 Demon Great Axe... I'm getting tired of the looks of it though. Next run through I'm getting the Great Lord Greatsword. But, it is impossible to find weapons that scale with strength with at least an A that isn't 20lb+
Also trying to figure out which armor I like more.. Currently none of them look good as a set.
currently have 40 end and 60 strength. Need more strength. Only doing ~550 against the 4 Kings.

i have a +10 standard halberd i plan on upgrading to the lifehunt scythe and a Gargoyle's halberd with +2 lightening. I like weapons with some distance but i want to find some good weapons that scale with strength and dexterity. I'm lvl 40 strength and 30 dexterity.
Also, what does the letter associated with stat scaling mean? A,b,c,d,e,s? is S low or high?

Also you realize when you make a weapon lightning it removes stat scaling all together.
highest to lowest goes as follows - S-A-B-C-D-E
My favorite dex weapons are:
Uchigatana at +15 with 40 dex it does 420 damage before armor and also has a bleed effect of 300.
Quellags Fury sword +5 with 10 humanity and 40 dex has about 500~ damage before armor reduction. It's got very fast attacks with a good moveset and it is a good choice for pve.
You would expect a scythe to have some horizontal motion in its attack but its a complete vertical down swing, its terrible. And the power attack is a large sweeping motion which isn't bad but you can't combo it at all.
The Dragon Greataxe is the only weapon, aside from the Bone Fist, that Scales to an "S". the Demon Machete Scales to an "A" only. While the Demon Machete gets almost 100 more points in raw damage.. the Demon Great axe does more damage. Even though it only has 275 raw damage against the 332 of the Machete.
I found this out last night when I upgraded the machete. I was pissed that I wasted all that time farming.

I semi-finished my level 30 pvp twink today, just need to finish farming some mats to finish my armor upgrades.
My +5 lightning zweihander does 721 damage and I only have 16 STR and 10 DEX.
I can 1-2 shot most people, 2v1 is a cinch. Even my brother that has only played the game for a few hours has no people killing invaders.
