Now, as much as I would like to believe I'm great at everything, Dark Souls is making me its bitch in every way, especially whenever I try to fight another human being. I feel somewhat as though my stats and gear are somewhat to blame, so someone needs to dispel that illusion so I can just get on with life knowing that everyone who plays this game is better than me. My stats are as follows:
SL 67 Vit 21 Att12 End 20 Str24 Dex24 Res17 Int 12 Faith20
Eastern Helm +4 Wanderer Coat +8 Wanderer Manchette +5 Wanderer Boots +5 Ring of Favour and Protection, and I swap out other rings on a regular basis.
For PVE and PVP, my weapon is generally a Divine Scimitar +5, after I realized my Lightning Spear +3 rarely hit another player, what with their rolly-ness. I'm pretty sure my weapon choice is bringin me down at least somewhat. I also use a spide shield +10, as I feel like spiderman when I use it.
Now someone either tell me that it doesn't matter what weapons you use if you don't have the skills/dedication to dominate other dudes (or maybe just win the occasional match?) so I can get on with my life, finish this game and then watch that hour and a half speed run and be done with it. Or, you can tell me that I just need to get/upgrade certain weapons/stop using the starting equipment and I can start conducting my very own pain train. Any non-general tips on PVP or the Four Kings would be appreciated.
