Sl 1 blog #1: Pre game prep work

So after playing Dark Souls for about a year straight, I've decided to start a sl 1 run. I think i can do it but the beginning should be interesting since i haven't played dark souls in a couple of weeks. I think i'll have to use the fap ring for the extra stamina. I haven't decided if I should just wear cloth armor and use the wolf ring or put on the elite knight armor (well some of it since there's no way i'll be able to wear all of it w/o doing a fat roll) and wear havel's. I'll probably use the heater shield b/c of the light weight and its actually pretty good stability once you upgrade it. I'm going use a lightning battle axe +5, and make the hand axe a +10 fire hand axe. I thought about using the reinforced club but i really hate the move set so i probably won't use it. I'll probably use a little bit of pyro. I think getting great combustion for sif and use power within for O & S and 4 kings. There's really only three things I'm concerned about, O & S, 4 kings, and gwyn. Usually i won't be so worried about gwyn but w/o poise, I'm a little concerned about not having enough poise since i wanted to use the hornet ring and parry him. I guess i could use iron flesh but i really hate using iron flesh. I just feel so cheap when i use it. Maybe flash sweat? I dunno, i guess i'll figure it out when i get there. So this is my tentative plan as of right now. I'll update when i get a chance to actually start this.
