so my love / hate relationship with Dark Souls continues, and after trying a few of the starting classes, I finally managed to kill that goddamn double gargoyle boss(es) and ring the first bell... but now what? A little history before I continue:
I first was playing as the Wanderer class, and I was actually really enjoying it, I like the simitar attack animations, it wasnt too slow, I was digging it. Until I got to the dual gargoyles and I just couldnt beat them for the life of me. 1 on 1 it was fine, but when the second popped and was off screen most of the time breathing fire on me or whatnot, it just eventually fucked me everytime. So I decided to try a sorceror (which I actually made before the Wanderer, I made a bunch of characters) because I knew that at least it had a ranged spell, and Im digging it, and finally killed the boss by spamming it with those Soul Bolts.
But now i feel like im incredibly underpowered for the next zone, I went down to the graveyard and it takes me like 6-7 Soul Bolts to kill 1 skelleton, and you only have 30. And because Ive been pumping points into INT (and a bit of VIT and END), my sword attacks dont actually hit for shit. I know theres magical weapons that hit based on your int, but I aint got any of that. I also dont have any other spell yet, and all the armor I find is so heavy it bogs down my sorceror (or I cant even use because I dont have enough STR...hell I even put 1 point into STR at one point to use the Knights Shield you (always?) find).
So what do I do guys? Start another character and go melee again, and hope I can kill that gargoyle boss? Make a hunter so I finally have a bow (none of my characters have found bows as drops, nor have I seen one for sale) so I can cheese-kill the bridge Dragon for the rape Drake Sword that I hear makes the early game much easier? Make a Bandit because they look awesome (lol)?
Such a weird place with this game... I really dont think it plays very well (you can defend it all you want but some of the stuff in here, like the camera, is atrocious), it certainly doesnt look very good (even with the DSfix) but something about it man, I just keep going back in, I dont even know why but I just want to play more. Any tips / advice / secrets / whathaveyou?
