I played all souls games and i want to start bloodborne soon with the DLC. Is there a good, not farm intensive build, that becomes OP pretty quickly?

just basic skill build or quality builds are the best.

you find fairly early radial gems around 16% and then the curse ones from the lantern in Mergo's loft...

I think the best question is rather what weapons to use.

I reckon the Cleaver is an absolutely amazing weapon (albeit underwhelming aesthetically) and does serrated for beast bosses.
then the axe in complement for reach and crowd etc.

you are set.

And they are really good? I mostly played with Zweihander in the DS games, or heavy / ultra heavy ones.

The ax’s transformed is behaving very much like a halberd in souls

For Ultra weapon feel you should get the Kirkhammer or Ludwig holy blade
Both are accessible fairly early
They are self sufficient since their normal form is fast and their transformed one is Ultra-ish

I would still use the cleaver or the saw spear for fast serrated damage versus beasts (infusing with fire gems early is exceptionally efficient even at low arcane)

Ok and how easy is to get upgrade material for this cleaver? I got the official walkthrough, so i can look the locations up.
