Gameplay tips and progression

-The Dragon Knight build is not able to match the North Regalia in power which is why individuals preferring the claymore move set stick to that build.

-This build is slow to start with, but picks up at the end (small guide provided at end).

-This build is created specifically for players who prefer decent strength, large vitality, and versatility with playing styles.

-Dragon Weapons can match crushing and sharp weapons (without buffs).
Example: +5 Crushing Guillotine Axe: 251 with about 40 str.
+5 Dragon Guillotine Axe: 328


-Hyper mode:

- Cast Second Chance.
- The main advantage gained is two hyper modes.
- On the second hyper mode cast Warding or Second Chance again if possible.

Mirdan Hammer-Crescent Axe Combo:

-It involves equipping the Crescent Axe on RH1 and the Mirdan Hammer on RH2.
-This tactic will keep other players on their toes if you switch between the two often.

-Regenerator (Regenerator's ring/adjudicator's shield)-
-This only works well with body form. The increased regen from the Regenerators Ring is not worth the price of replacing the Foe's Ring or Cling Ring.

Final Note:
This build has limitless possibilities and is adaptable to any individual player's preferences. Adjustments can be made to str and dex if required for your weapon of choice.

Basic Walkthrough:

After world 1-1, pour points into vitality and move on to world 4-1. It will be slightly difficult, but move through the Silver Skeletons and take the passage to your left upon reaching the large walls with 2 Silver Skeleton Archers on top. Dodge the arrow trap and take the door immediately to your left. Kill or run from the Black Skeleton after you grab the Crescent Falchion +1.
Return to the Nexus.

Fight through world 2-1 and 2-2; collect all of the shards, chunks, and pure dragonstone on the map which should provide at least 3 upgrades for your weapon. Do not fight the Dragon God with a dragon weapon. No other bosses should give you problems regarding fire damage.
