fking hassle better to just use lightning
The blue crystal golems in the Dukes Archives are weak to fire damage
Only reason I would ever use this is to get t he achievement
very worth, chaos ascension cna be very good depending on your weapon. Gargoyle halberd is excellent
I don't really understand the logic behind ascension that removes scaling from weapons, at a point in the game at which most people will have high stats for their weapons...
A madman can run through the Catacombs and to Vamos straight from Firelink. That is what Giantdad seekers do
whut XD Catacoms are one of the easiest areas in the game. Just farm green shards and you have nic strong fire weapon and you can focus on other stats. Dmg in this game is the least important factor as most enemies have v little health. Going vitality/ endurance/ fire is way easier than quality in ds1. Also the fire effect looks really nice when you hit something and things like fire estoc deal realy high crit dmg. Lots of pros, little cons
I guess I'm just a newbie or whatever....
but so many of these weapon upgrades say "good/recommended for low level players with low stats", except you don't get the ember and necessary materials until like halfway through the game.
Like, who's out there running around with rare embers, chunks and slabs and is still at low levels?
Soul Level 1 Runs?
do the meme run and play the game leveling only vitality/endurance/resistance, wow suddenly raw weapons are relevant
You ever heard of being a sorcerer or faith build?
you can upgrade to fire straight after asylum, farming slugs for green shardsand going to Vamos... how is this mid game. The same with divine/ magic, only lightning is locked for Anor Londo
Super duper usefull ascension for more grindy types of players. Get **** of green shards from A- slugshit in the dephts or B- *****lugs in the Blighttown. Run to Vamos, enjoy. With master key you can go straight to Andre without worrying about bosses/ fights too much and from there just upgrade you favourite weapon and hit the elevator when you are ready to go to the catacombs/ blighttown :) Uchigatana, Estoc, Bastard Sword, Balder S.S. are all excellent while Fire infused :)
You can get a +8 fire weapons defeating only the asylum demon, quelaag and cheesing ceasless discharge, you pick the master key and grab the things behind the elevator. Then you go to blighttown through new londo, in blighttown grab all the soul items etc, and go to the great hollow, grab both of the red chunks there and get back to the main bonfire. Become human and wait for mildred to invade, after filling her, summon her to kill quelaag easily. Then cheese ceasless. Run all the way to the large flame ember behing a bunch of worms and bone out. Then go back to the great hollow bonfire, and farm for green shards from the slugs. They drop 5 at a time so it won't take long (use humanities if you want more item discovery). After farming go back to firelink shrine, and jump up to the asylum, you can do it without having the shortcut to undead parish. In the asylum, kill both black knights for their chunks and head back to firelink. Now go down to Vamos and consume all your souls to buy 9 titanite shards, upgrade your desired weapons to +5, ascend to fire, +5 fire, ascend agian and get it to +8. Now enjoy (now that you are here go destroy penwheel in 2 hits) I hope this help
Just want to add that you can do the same with chaos if you grab the chaos ember behind the taurus demons
