    Pretty much every time I play it I end up with the halberd. I like the move set and its powerful as fook.

    @quadfather You know what I've only ever used the BKH on one character. Hmm. Re-roll looming. What's the quickest way to get it? Thief key, back entrance to darkroot way?

    @wuntyphyve

    Yup, that's the quickest. You've got to time a jump so you get some invincibility frames on the first electric drake to avoid his one shot, but after that, it's plain sailing. Well, as long as you can kick the knight off the ledge with a backstab or you'll be there tickling him for ages.

    I'd neck a humanity too at the bonfire just before him to get a bit more item discovery. From starting the game it takes about 10-15 minutes (you gotta keep starting from scratch in the asylum if it doesn't drop). But as it's right at the start of the game, it's worth rerolling a few times to get it imo.

    Now I just need 32 str and 18 dex \o/

    Erm. I don't know :)

    My very first character used it later on, but that was a silly character as noone knew what the fuck they were doing - mine ended up with a shitload of resistance. So that doesn't count :)

    Definitely done one proper one. And, er, maybe another. This is probably my third.

    But! I haven't done one on the PS4 version yet, so effectively it's my first time \o/

    I keep intending to go back to this and try a magic build. Cant tell you how many times I've played it now but have never, ever bothered with a pure magic character.

    Don't think I have either. I've had a hybrid but not full on. Do you count pyromancy in that build?

    I did a full on magic build my third ever character I think. Fucking devastating. Crystal spells and a combination of crystal catalyst and logan catalyst meant I just fucked EVERYTHING up.

    I'll defo give it a try I think. I'm just so used to playing it in a fully melee style I think it would be interesting just mixing up the game a bit.

    It's pretty boring to be fair. I just homing crystal soul-massed everything from a distance.

    @richarddavies

    My first ever character was a mage. You can feel quite OP early on and bosses are fairly easy but it's quite a slow methodical way to play. When you get large shielded enemies, magic doesn't really do much damage and then you realise why the term glass cannon exists. Squishy!

    Pure int builds are great in PVE and PVP, crystal geyser and pursuers tear stuff up.

    A caster build is worth doing just for the hilariously satisfying revenge against those wheel-skeletons.

    Greatshield works just as well, just watch them bounce off you with nothing happening to your endurance .

    Right. Fine. I have never tried a BKH run. I hate you all.

    Bastards.
