It's anyone's guess really. Maybe the PS3 was having trouble maintaining 30fps in multiplayer.

great game, tyrannicon got me to this game and tough i prefer the offline game to avoid being invaded, i worry about whats to transpire after gfwl gets shut down.

i kinda bought gfwl version as its not available in my country at steam, and i dont know what will happen. then again for some unknown reason i also have a steam logo on the back cover of my retail copy. its so confusing ...

what good is bottomless box if your weight counts only your armor, shield and weapons?

If you have everything in the box, you can switch between items easier in combat.

It's to help you tidy up your inventory so you can find items faster. I use it to store weapons that I intend to upgrade and use in the future. Unwanted items can be fed to Frampt.

You dont have to sort through your entire inventory to find something. By end game, you'll have accumulated a lot of gear/items.

so i am SL28 and at SL31 i will get 20endurance and be under 50% weight with my chain armor set
also am using poisonbite ring and blue tearstone ring, black knight sword+2 + short bow

have 20str, 18dex to wield black knight sword and 20endurance to stay under 50%weight
what now, should i spend the next 29 points to get hp to 40? as my 594hp is not much

also should i just upgrade all parts of the chain set to +3? thats like 18 titanite shard (have 17 titanite shard, and 3 titanite chunks)

just killed gargoyles with 2 npc phantoms and offed titanite demon at blacksmith andre

also i am correct to assume the sets dont have any set bonus and i can freely combine all the pieces between various armors? gargoyle helm seems to have better stats than my chain helm

I wanted to go later with steel armor but thats like after i got havels ring as it has 37weight compared with 17,x weight of chain set

thanks

  • Having more life is never a bad idea.
  • If you plan on keeping the chain mail set, or if you need the defense now, then go for it. Otherwise, there are better sets out there. You can always farm for more titanite, but farming tends to be tedious.
  • Yes, you can intermingle set pieces.

Did you get the Basement Key in order to gain access to Lower Undead Burg yet? Theres an important Ember location in the depths after you defeat the boss located there.

yes i got the key

hmm so i need to farm around 75k souls to get myself to SL39(28Endurace), i should then be able to wield steel set (23k souls) with havels ring and eagle shield, and then spend my 17 titanite shards to upgrade the steel set to +3

or i see anor londo is immediately after sens fortress, so should i go for steel set or wait it out for black iron set from anor londo?

best
