I’m around level 45-50.
Mainly put souls into Strength, Vitality and Dexterity, with each around 22-25. Everything else is barely touched. I’m happy to put a few hours into killing those giant knights and getting up a tad if necessary.
I also have a huge bunch of Titanite saved up, which I’m totally unsure what to put into? I levelled up my Longsword into a Raw Longsword and that is pretty handy; also have a Heavy crossbow 3, but find that fairly shite. I have a few punchy weapons like Dragonbow, Crystal Halberd, Lightning Spear and various great axes that I’m not quite levelled up enough to use, so I haven’t put anything into them - should I?
I got the sense from O&S that something longer than a sword might be handy. I can get one of them down to half health ok, but then they gang up on me…
As for Lautrec, I used the Orb to invade his world. I heard on Bonfireside Chat he killed the Firelink Shrine keeper so I wanted revenge… Best to do this later on?
