|Gameplay tips and progression||
not much explaining needed, most ppl are familiar wit str builds just wash rinse and repeat. vit should be no less than 47, its a pretty idealistic number, because its just enough to allow u to survive a backstab from a foes ring sharp +5 cursed uchigatana user if ur in body form. 66 str is to maximize the dmg output in two hands (99 str). if u go to 67 nd two hand, its the same as if u two hand wit 66, nd it scrapes the dmg output of dex builds, nd matches the output of an optimized quality build, although greatly increases the hp. finally, the brass telescope serves as a free substitute to augite. after triumphing over any bps u encounter, or any demon slayers for that matter, just whip out ur brass telescope, which if they have emotions at all will piss them off :) enjoy. my psn is xXoG_aSsAsSiiNxX msg if u have any questions.
