The above is my character from Dark Souls (named Leon after the Resident Evil protagonist) about to go take on the final boss of the game. I really regret not sticking to this game when it was new and fresh and discovering its secrets with everyone who was playing. But on the bright side, playing it a year after Dark Souls came out did make my time with the game easier.
I went for a greatsword build with medium weight after watching YouTuber OverTheGun decimate everything in his path in his Let’s Play Dark Souls videos (highly recommended watch!). I decided to substitute the Zweihander with a Claymore since it is faster and still has a decent reach. At this point in the game, everything goes down in one or two hits when two-handing the Claymore. I am open to recommendations for better equipment/build though!
Current equipment list:
I’m thinking of raising strength to 40 next to make use of the Claymore’s scaling. Final build link.
Can’t wait for New Game +, Dark Souls 2 and being able to play the game on PC. Apparently you can do silly mods like the following!
