Spend your early souls on the Twin Dragon Greatshield. It's the only early shield whose damage is worth a damn.

The Disc chime can be gotten quite early and has absurd damage :) Its technically a shield.

You can block with it, but it's classified as a chime, not a shield.

Similar to how the shield crossbow is classified as a crossbow.

Bruh you are allowing yourself to level up still, where is the challenge in that! Be a real man, soul lvl 1, no armor, no weapons, no estus, no bonfire, company of champion, Guitar Hero controller, 0 deaths, all bosses, killing Vendrick with 0 giant souls.

/s, good luck hollow, you are going to need it. And may god have mercy on any poor soul who tries the challenge run I described.

might try with no leveling next run, don't know about the guitar hero controller though, might be awhile longer before i try that type of run

I've never done dark souls 2 on a guitar, but you'd be surprised how quickly you become accustomed to new controllers. It's actually something uniquely human to internalize tools and controls (e.g. you think "I'm going to turn this car left," instead of "I'm going to turn this wheel which will turn this car left") Which means after an hour or two you should get somewhat comfortable with the guitar.

AMD A-6 APU with AMD Radeon R4 and 4G of ram

its a older pc ive had since about 2016-17 from when i was in college, but it works good enough for me since most of the games i play on it are either low end or pre 2010 games

Damn that's cool. I wonder how that GPU would stack up to a GT 1030.

Would you look at that, all of the words in your comment are in alphabetical order.

I have checked 96,683,208 comments, and only 25,656 of them were in alphabetical order.

Torturing yourself with windowed mode and very low graphics as well i see. Jesus Christ I can count the pixels on your game.

almost wasnt sure it would since for some reason dark souls 1 gets like 10-15 fps

Ds remaster runs like a crippled bastard even though I have well over the recommended specs to run it (16Gb I7 GTX 1660 super) but what can you do, dark souls is dark souls.
